itig a little, exercising a little judgment, or what is
commonly callel "horse-sense," many a student
will bother someone else with an endless line of
questions 'that are entirely unnecessary.
In reference world, exact pages must be assigned.
The student would never think to look in the index
for the topic he knows the class is discussing. If
he desires information, he never tries to think
where he might inquire to have his question an-
swered. If a room for which he is looking is listed
as 300, he will not figure out that it will probably
be on the third floor.
Many will say that these are exaggerated cases.
They are not. One of our representatives had oc-
casion the other day to direct a number of students
to a meeting. The room was numbered 318. Any
number of persons asked on what floor it was .o
cated. And they were upperclassmen, 'many of
A "Think" campaign could appropriately be in-
augurated on our campus. No doubt we are no
worse than many other people who are supposed
to have "heads," but we have become accustomed.
to having things served to us morsel by morsel.
Maybe we are out of. the habit of thinking.
The prompt response of the colleges and univer-
sities to the demand for men, not only for active
service abroad but for work in scientific and me-
chanical fields, has been widely cominented upon.
We have not at hand data as to Michigan's repre-
sentation in the war, through students and alumni,
but know it was highly creditable to the institution.,
Be that as it may, there is a general disposition to
honor the sacrifice of these who served, eben to the
giving of their lives, in some suitable fashion.
The feeling, in most cases, is that the memorial
should have no obvious utilitarian purpose but
should rather appeal to sentiment and patriotism
and serve to develop a deeper fellowship with the
men whose ideals are thus perpetuated.-petroit

Editor, The Michigan Daily:
France is waiting 10 years to build
a memorial to her soldier sons. Wh1y
the., hectic rush at the University of
Michigan? The kind of a memorial
we want is not selected and built in
a day. {It would be better to honor our
soldiers only in spirit, than to erect
something unfitting- and entirely in-
adequate. I doubt if such a memorial
can be selected and built. through the
medium of student communications,
and student enterprise. It is too big
a job, and too important.
Therefor, I suggest that the Stu-
dent council appoint a committee, to
include faculty men, and the commit-
tee be given power to look into the
situation, make its selection, and act
to give the University of Michigan a
memorial that will in the fullest meas-
ure express the appreciation and hon-
or we feel toward our Michigan sold-
iers. The Daily might Well also start
a competition in ideas, to give the
committee something to work on.
Prof. T. E. Rankin and Prof. A. E.
Wood are giving a series of lectures
every week .during the first. semester
in the Detroit Central High school.
The course of Professor Rankin began
at 7:40 o'clock October 15. The gen-
eral topic will- be "A Study of Con
temporay Writers."
The lecturds of Professor Wood
which began Oct. 14 will take place
in room 111 of the Detroit Cen-
tral High school. Both of these lec-
tures are conducted under the aus-
pices of the University of Michigan
Extension department. The subject
of Professor Wood's course is "A
Study of the Family."
Sunday, Nov. 23, has been chosen as
the date for, the dedication of the Cath-
olic Students' chapel, corner State
and Jefferson streets.
As yet plans for the exercises are
incomplete, according to Fr. M. P.
Bourke, although it has been definitely
decided that, Bishop Gallagher,= of the
Detroit diocese, will have chargetof
the ceremonies. The chapel will be
known 'as the Chapel of the Immacu-
late Conception.
