nothing that tends to broaden a man so much as
mixing with fellow students from different parts
of our own country and the world and listening to
their opinions on present day questions.
Each student is a representative of' his own na-
tivity and, to the man or woman who is seeking
all that college life can give, is a source of enlight-
enment which is not to be passed by at a glance.
But there is a tendency among students to cling to
some small group of the classroom or social circle
or his own disposition and let the world move on
unheeded. That is the attitude which the aboriginal
tribes held. But we live in a different age.
It is our duty as broad-minded American citizens
to know life in as many forms as possible and here
in this University is the place to start. The big
men in this school today are the men who have
looked at life from its different sides as shown on
our campus. So why may we not do the same?
Tomorrow when you go upon the campus speak
to that man whom you met yesterday, even if so
casually. They have ideas., some of them as good
as yours. By doing so you broaden your own out,
look and the cosmopolitan ideas of your school.
Michigan is cosmopolitan. It is up to you to
keep it so. --Con'tributed.
Speaking in parables, have you ever thought of
the listless individual-the modern Rlip Van Win-
kle-who lets most everything pass by him without
even a wink.? Can't you just see him wandering
aimlessly under ancestral trees, stroking a long
gray beard and crying hedplessly-"Doesn't any-
body know Rip?"
That is the tragedy of being asleep, or of sleep-
ing too long. Self gratification may be a niighty
pleasant college dream, but like the Van Winkle
dream it never wants to end. So probably the mis-
take is in ever lying down at all. In spite of the
cosmopolitan aspect of university life, every uni-
versity always produces' a certain percentage of
narrow, provincial people every year. They are, of
course, products of the dream. - The man who is
too restless is often severely censored, but how
often he is the very man needed to wake other peo-
ple up. The American university-a product of a
fiercely progressive race-should have plenty of loyv
ers of the chase, of the hotness of competition.
Rip would never have lain down in the first place
if he hadn't gotten a mighty false sense of things.
And he surely. would never have retired for twenty
years if he had not become mesmerized with the
idea that the world was all wrong and that petu-.
lant solitude was the only thing for him.
Are you going to wake up some quarter of a
century from now to look around regretfully, rub
your eyes and sigh, because it is too late and you
have slept too long?
Villa has announced that he will stay away from
the U. S. border on his campaign next month. And
still there are those who will try to tell you that
Pancho isn't overly endowed with gray matter.

That the coal situation is getting to
be very serious is the opinion of the
wholesale and retail coal dealers of
Ann Arbor. Due to the threatened
general strike they declare the out-
look at present is indeed gloomy. The
striking miners are demanding a five
day week and a six hour day. The
new twages demanded by the miners
will advance the price of coal.
The local dealers are striving to get
a supply on hand to satisfy the pre-
sent demand. The consumption to
date has been unusually heavy for this
time of the year and the cold weath-
er is not yet upon us. The local deal-
ers are fully prepared to handle the
supply in case they can get it but now
the present question is "Will we get
Prices at present fortsoftacoal av-
erage about $8.50 per ton., and hard'
coal is selling for $12.50 per ton.
These prices are much higher than
those of last year and the consensus
of opinion is that they will go higher.

Prof. David Friday: "The way the Federal
Reserve Board attempted to decide whether to
raise funds for the purpose of carrying.on the war
by 'means of taxation or loans reminds me of a
story that Lincoln told about a man he knew. This
man was hunting deer one foggy morning and saw
an object which he took to be a deer. He raised
his rifle to his shoulder and took careful aim. Sud-
denly he bethought himself that the object he was
about to fire upon might not be a deer, but his
neighbor's cow. He therefore took such aim so
that if in case it was his neighbor's cow he would
miss it but that if it was a deer he would kill it.

. Since publicity men are more highly paid than
are many others in other phases of the newspaper
game, why not prepare for it open-eyed, 'rather
than theorize about why it is or whether it ought to
be? Perhaps this is a trite question.
The student who does not' want to learn how to
be a successful amateur, but instead how to be an
all-around man in a professional occupancy, will
appreciate being taught what principles should gov-
ern every activity in his particular field. It seems
that a step toward progress has been taken when
schools of journalism accept the popular demand of
the public and attempt to instill an ethical standard
into the men who are soon to respond to the de-
mand. In so doing the university is meeting the
world on the same ground that the graduate him-
self will have to do when his days of collegiate
training are over.
One of the Greatest things that Michigan uni-
versity has prided herself' in is the cosmopolitan
spirit that pervades her students. And it is a thing
thing to be nroud of in the highest sense. There is
