By tomorrow night the last stragglers of/ the great homeward-
bo'und host will have left Ann Arbor, leaving only a deserted cam-
,pus behind. There will be a noticable dwindling of that intangible
but supreme factor in the University cosmos which we call Michi-
gan spirit.-What will have become of it?
If, as we believe, that spirit is immortal, it cannot vanish
into thin space with the exodus of students. Rather, there will have
been a mere shifting of its locale. Instead of flourishing on the
Michigan campus, it will have spread out into a vast system ex-
tending into every corner of the country to which Michigan men
have penetrated.
What finer oppor'tunit to carry the spirit of Michigan to the
men who need it, could present itself? What finer' opportunity
could we possess to inspire the right men with an admiration for
Michigan that will bring them here in the fall?
And Michigan needs good men. She needs mostly athletes of
promising ability who can help her retrieve her lost fortunes. But
she, also needs promising material in other fields of endeavor. It is
.the duty of the Christmas holidays to help her secure these needs.,
Take Michigan with you to your part of the country. Make the
' "folks at home" realize thaj yours is one of the greatest schools
s in the land. And when you come back, come with the feeling that
e you have done your share in the solving of a Michigan problem!.
n And incidentally-The Daily is wishing every Michigan man a
e truly Merry Christmas as well as a most prosperous New Year!

"As yet the opera has 'not pro-
