atle events ot a colege career. Ambition for mem-
bership in such oganizations is a spur to greater
efficiency and a more social spirit among students,
and as such must 'be -considered a big asset for
Michigan. As for the charge of lack of democracy,
>r few will deny that proved ability and hard work are
Se fair standards for all. Most of the campus organi-
- zations base membership on the winning of con-
spicuous places in athletic or campus activities -
which anyone is welcome to compete for - plus a
general reputation for being a good fellow.
All this does not mean, though, that men once
e elected to such societies should rest on their laurels
'p and forget their oath to do all in their power for
Michigan. In their ranks are found the ablest men
of the various classes, and their organization is a
means ready at hand for promoting a better spirit of
co-operation betwen all activities, for the good of
the University. More campaigns ought to be turned
over to them, and more interclass "differences given
Y them to settle. Active purposes of this kind not
only serve to strengthen the societies within them-
selves, but permit Michigan to avail itself of the
best energies of its greatest workers.

THE UNION CHECK ROOM
In many cases when protection is offered to a
person, that man deliberately disregards it and re-
fuses to 'benefit by it. This is especially trie in the
case of the check ioom recently installed in the
Since the time this means of protection from
theft was instigated it has seen very little use.
The small group which does use it is almost en-
tirely composed of out of town members and guests.
Very few students use it.
People would rather take the :risk of losing their
overcoats than to bother to see that thtey are put
where they will be safe. A few cases of theft from
the different coat rooms have been reported already,
and to Union officials this attitude of -"Oh, I'll take
a chance" is becoming more and more hard to un-
derstand. The use of the check room is entirely
free of charge, and if .students and other persons
who use the building would consider what the con-
sequences of carelessness on their part might be,
the check room would become more and more pop-
The best way to keep a thief from stealing is td
keep temptation away from him. Increased use of
the check room would be beneficial not only to those
whose property is concerned but to everyone in gen-

Why in matters of this kind always choose the
