us five times as much. If the war were not over, you would not hesitate
to lend your money to help end it. Why hesitate now?
Remember-you can never hope to equal them in heroism and valor.
But you can show your appreciation of what they have done, by helping your
country in a material way.
Remember-it is a point of honor to pay one's debts. You pay your
personal debts. Now help your country pay its national debt. If the
country fails in this, you will be to blame.-
Remember-Germany raised an immense loan a few months before de-

GRAND1OTHER OF RUS-
SIA IS SPEAKER
BELIEVES SUCH ORGANIZATION
WOULD BE OF GREAT BENEFIT
"The University of Michigan, one of
the only two schools in this country
giving courses in aeronautical engi-
neering and having such a splendid
war record of its men who have served
in the air service should by all means
have an Aero club," said Prof. F. W.
Pawlowski of the aeronautical engi-
neering department when asked what
he thought of the organization of such
a olub here.
Professor Pawlowski believes that
such an organization consisting of
every one in the University interest-
ed in aviation and those who have
served in the various flying units
would be beneficial.
' Of Value to Ex-Airmen
Through the club they could keep
posted on the current developments in
this line, study the latest problems and
in this manner make ,it a headquar-
terstfor the men who have served in
Professor Pawlowski's ideal club
would be open to all interested in
aeronautics, students of aviation and
service men whether commissioned or
not. He would have a club well bal-
anced both technically and socially,
technically for the students and so-
cially for the former flyers.
Mould Advertise University
Selfridge aviation field will continue
to train men for the air service and
cross country flights will no doubt be
made, a .club in Ann Arbor could en-
courage the flyers to stop here, en-
tertain them and these men from ev-
ery part -of the country would carry
the Michigan spirit to their home towns
and advertise the University.
A similar club was started in 1912
and survived about five years. The
members built models and gliders but
there were no practical airmen here
at the time and a Wright hydro air-
plane given the club by a Mr. Alger
of Detroit was smashed within a few
days after it had been set up.
Club Started Soon
Anyone interested in the organiza-
tion of such a club may call at Pro-
fessor Pawlowski's office, 333 Engi-
neering building and if enough prove
to be interested a meeting will be.

Paris, April 21.- The Italian ques-

day when President Wilson refrained
from attending the meeting of the

other members of the American dele-

Prom For Mlay
Mme. Breshkovsky, "little grand-
mother of the Russian revolution," who
is to speak at Hill auditorium at 8
o'clock Tuesday evening, April 29, is
well qualified to deal with questions:
concerning Russia, for she has the'
true understanding of the Russian sit-
uation. She understands the Russian
people as only one can who has spent
years in Siberian prisons and camps.
Mme. Breshkovsky speaks, not as a
dispassionate onlooker, but as one
who has lived, suffered and fought
under an oppressive political regime.
The present lecture tour which
Mme. Breshkovsky is making in
America is not her first. Her first
tour was made some 15 years ago.
At that time she was recdr nized and
greeted as one who had cnsecrated
her life to the great cause of Russian

YOUNG PRIMA DONNA
INTO OPERA IN
Rising from a singer in the movies,
in cabaret, in vaudeville, to grand
opera in the incredibly short space of'
,five months has been the unique'
achievement of-Rosa Ponselle, the 23-
year-old prima donna of the Metro-s

eral arias in the first concert Wed-

Willed to Succeed
Miss Ponselle is another of those1
geniuses who without wealth, influ-:
ence, or educational opportunities hasI
nevertheless attained a pre-eminent
position in the artistic world by means#
of unusual equipment and the will to
do in face of every obstacle.
1 She was born in Meridian, Conn., of
Italian parentage. Her childhood was
spent with meager opportunities for
artistic development. She first sang
as soloist in church. In the spring of
-1918 she was booked at a New York
vaudeville in a "sister act" with her
sister, Camela. In the audience one
day there happened to be a man named
William Thorner, well known vocal
instructor in New York. He was im-
pressed by the voices of the girls, es-E
pecially that of Camela, and offered to I
tutor her. Shortly after her sister be-t
gan her studies Rosa became restless,t
deciding that she wanted to study, al-
so. Although it was against the judg-
ment of the maestro to accept two pu-
pils from the same family, Mr. Thorner
finally consented, and Rosa began her
arduous duties in company with herc
