wounded in the war, and now students
in the University, have shown in the
past few months that their scholastic
standards and abilities are as high
as their work while in theĀ° service
would indicate that they should be.
Ntone of the men failed to meet the
University requirements during the
first semester and some of them have
established very creditable recordV.

These men are taking their work in

Millar Dissents
In the opinion of Bruce Millar, '20,
managing editor of the Alichiganen-
sian, the plan .is not feasible on ac-
count of the large attendance at Mich-
igan. "If any one O ay was set," he
said, "it would be bound to bit some
classes harder than others. For in-
stance, the senior class is under heavy
expenses for large class dues, diploma
fees, invitations, cap and gown, senior
canes, etc. I think the individual or-
ganizations and classes can set their
own dates for collection more ad-
vantageously thane one organization
couldarbitrarily set a date for all."
Students ,Mean.Well
T. C. Sedgwick, '21, said: "I think
that the majority of students mean to
pay up with the merchants, at least
the first of every month, but often
put payment off until they are dunned'
I believe that one, or better yet, two
Pay=Up Days,' one in the fall and one
in the spring, would afford a stimulus
to paying up all debts to merchants
organizations, and classes. A great
many, when they see how they have
let their debts pile up against them
will make an effort to pay them off
more as they go along."
James McClintock, '2fl, managing
editor of the Chimes, believed the plan
good but doubted that ascheme of thiF
kind could be well enough organized
to make it effective.

Proposed Plaits Will be Twice Size
of N-C4, to Cover Distance of
7,616 Mies
New Yoi-k March -8. - The United
States navy is preparing two giant H-
flying boats for the first flight across
the Pacific ocean, according, to an an-
nouncement here tonight by the Man-
ufacturers Aircraft association, which
said that 'construction of the boats,
which are nearly twice the size of 'the
N-C 4, will be begun 'within a few
days. .
First Stop at Honolulu .
The proposed route lies from San
Francisco to Hong Kong, China, a
distance of 7,616 nautical miles. Stops
will be made at Honolulu, Wake Is-
land, Guam, and Manila. 4
The rfirst leg of the Journey, from
San Francisco to Honolulu a dist-
ance of 2,091 nautical miles is the
hardest, and the association points
out that the new boats will be able to
pgegotiate the dista ice easily in 24
Crew Numbers 27
The fiights have been made possible;
the announcement said, by an inven-
tion whereby three Liberty 'engines
are coupled' to one 18'foot propeller.
RThe boats will have three separate
noowe plants, each containing three
high compression Liberty engines or
iine motors to each ship. The crew

Amendments in Effect Are Nuifica.-
tions, 'He Writes to Demo-
oratie Leader
Washington, March 8. - President
Wilson restated for Democratic sena-
tors today his opposition to any peac
treaty ,reservations which would weak-
en the full 'force of Article X or oth-
erwise materially impair the provi-
sions of the late covenant.
'Without saying specifically what the
qualifications h4 would or would not
accept, he wrote in a letter to Sena-
tor Hitchcock, the admninistration
leader, that almost all 'of the res-
vations he had heard suggested were
"in effect virtual nullifcation" of
the treaty articles towhich they ap-
"I hear of reservationists and mild
reservations," the letter added, "but I
cannot 'understand the' difference be-
tween a nullifier ad ,a mild null-
Diftuss' Ardie X
Discussing Article X- particularly,
the president wrote that there was
no escaping olr moral obligations
which are expressed in positive terms
in this article although. there dan be
no objection to 'explaniixj' in an in-
terpretation the constitutional meth-
ods by which such an obligation would
have to' be fulfilled. The "very 'heart
of covenant," he Teiterated, "would be'
imperiled by weakening Article X.
"If we were to 'reject that article
or so to weaken it as to take-its full
force out of it," the president said,
"it would'make us as desiring to re-
turn to-tlie old world of jealous rival-
'ryg and misunderstanding from which
our gallant soldiers rescued us.
Must Choose
"The :choice is between two ideals.
Qn the one hand, the ideal of democ-
racy which represents the rights of
free peoples everywhere to govern
themselves, and on the other hand the
ideal of imperialism wbch seeks to
dominate by force and unjust power,
an ideal which is by no means dead
and which is principally held in many
quarters still imperialistic. Influences
in Europe are hostile to the adoption
of Article X and the covena4 o! the
League of Nations,\ and ts deteat '10w
would mark the complete consumma-
tion of their efforts to nulfy -the
treaty. I hold the doctrine of Arti-
cle X to be the essence of Aerican-
ism. We cannot repudiate it or weak;-
en it without at the same time re-
pudiating'our own principles.
Should Enter Fearlesslyr
"Either we. shouldsenter the league
fearlessly,, accepting the responsibil-
ities and not fearing the role of lead-
ership which we now enjoy, contribut-
ing our efforts towards establishing a
just and permanent base'or we should
retire as gracefully as possible from
the great concert of powers by which
the world was saved.
"Our respnsibiity as a nation at
this turning point of history is, an
overwhelming one, and, if I had the
opportunity I would beg every one
concerned to consider the matter in
the light of what it is possible to ac-
complish for humanity rather-than in
the light of special national inter-
ests."'. x

Will Ultimately Become Republic Like
United States, Says Prime
Mover of Project
Copenhagen, March 8.-The ultimate
development of Germany into a repub-
lic of federated states like the United
State's of Ameria is predicted by Dr.
Rudolph Musz, one of the prime mov-
ers of the project to separate from
Prussia that part of Sschweswig-Hol-

er the plebiscites.
Move Opened Last Year.
The Schlweswig-Holstein movement
began last August, and according to
Dr. Musz, now has approximately 75,-
000 adherents.
"We are Schlweswig-Hosteiners,"
Dr. Musz declared, "an desire to ad,-
minister our own affairs .as far as
possible' and have our own judges,
teachers, and clergymen..
Delegates Agree
4"All of the 200 delegates who at-
tended the recent m'eeting at Rems-
burg, were agreed that our territory
wopld always remain a part of the
German nation, but I believe all the
German " nationalities will demand
home rule and that Germany will
gradually develop into a federated re-
