carrying on the impetus which that war afforded
towards the perfection of the science of aviation.
The appropriation set aside by Secretary Weeks
of more than two millions of dollars for the pur-
pose of air development has met with the approval
and encouragement of the press which voices the
anxiety of the American people lest we be outdis-
tanced by our European neighbors in a field which
has such potentialities in peace as well as in war.
It would indeed be regrettable should the nation
which gave the heavier-than-air machine to the
world continue to resign the development and 'ben-
efits of that invention to other countries. Amrican
ingenuity and inventive genius have proved them-
selves in so many directions that their energies if
turned towards the sky, would in all probability
achieve a success paralleling or surpassing that of
other great powers.
But to accomplish such a program, money is
needed, money in much more liberal sulms than has
recently been granted. Let us hope that the action
of Secretary Weeks is the initial urge of an ardent
future activity in this field.
LIBRARY READING LISTS
To those students who are desirous of improving
their knowledge of literature by the route of gen-
eral reading and vet to whom the method of select-
ing proper material is a rater vague problem, the
lists posted this year on the bulletin board of the
general library should have proved a boon. "Thirty-
six books called worth while", compiled by the
New York Public library, lists of short stories, of
plays, and of works of a more serious or sometimes
lighter nature, have been placed before us from
time to time, and the officials are to be commended
for their thoughtfulness.
It is to be feared, however, that these posted com-
pilations are often overlooked in our hurry to and
from the reading room. Accordingly, the sugges-
tion has presented itself that, from a literary stand-
point, the students might be served even more ef-
fectually if printed lists of books, books which com-
bine interest with real literary worth, were to be
placed on sale at cost for the benefit of those who
realize and appreciate their own need for guidance
in the matter of choosing the right kind of reading
The preparation of such pamphlets should not
present much difficulty to the library; yet as a guide
for the serious-minded reader, such booklets would
no doubt prove of inestimable worth in helping him
to select, for his own consumption, the highest type
of interesting literature which the stacks afford.
The furnishing of photographs of candidates
along with the ballots in campus elections should
sometimes be of help to those voters whose memory
for names is short; yet even a moderately good im-
agination should have little difficulty in guessing
what was running through the minds of the throngs
- of female voters who, while sizing up the like-
nesses of their sister students, succeeded in thor-
oughly blockading the traffic yesterday in the cor-
ridor of University hall

What do you suppose the reason for this was?

MICHIGAN SPIRIT NEXT YEAR
This is the first of a Wednesday-and-Saturday
series of editorials aiming to get the campus started
right next fall. The letdown in spirit has been all
top obvious this year: in the poor attendance at
class meetings, the occasional hissing and catcalling
at games, the failure to observe traditions, the ten-
dency to cry a cynical "fie!" at all that would make
the individual forget himself in the interest pre-
sering and adding to that energetic loyalty which
should distinguish Michigan's undergraduate body.
Let's get started now on a new era.
i. TmE INDIVIDUAL
Michigan is honored by the presence of many
types of students,. and afflicted by two: the cynic
and the drone.
The campus cynic is the child graybeard who has,
in his own estimate, seen all things, measured their
value by experience, and judged them universally
useless. He enjoys seeing the damned fools work-
ing to get out inane publications, attending senseless
gatherings, yelling their lungs out, obeying tradi-
tions. He watches his benighted fellows with the
same superciliously amused complacency with which
the average mortal would follow the antics of a
cage of monkeys. Everything is unnecessary, in his
eyes, except what he himself is doing.
The cynic would be an interesting exhibit to keep,
if we could only embalm him in a museum. But
he is always tearing loose and throwing sand in the
motor. He is the senior who is eternally laughing
or sneering at the freshmen in his rooming house
whO are trying to live up to traditions or get out
for activities. He is the "experienced man" who
persists in pointing out the amateurish, nature of
campus drama and journalism; who joins a so-
ciety, - accepts the responsibilities of membership,
and then conveniently forgets them on meeting
nights, passing on with biting irony his opinion of
the workers. He is the campus' worst pest and par-
The drone is not so bad. At least he is not so
crude as to refuse credit to others. He is simply
a let-George-do-it de luxe, a consistent passer of
the buck. He is glad somebody will work; he ad-
mits things ought to be done; but he always chooses
to be a bystander. He wouldn't matter if there were
only one of him. But figures prove he is the major-
ity. He is the athlete who doesn't come out, the
artist who doesn't draw, the studious avoider of
Michigan spirit starts with the individual's atti-
tude. The cynic needs worst to have somebody
laugh at him, hard and heartily; the drone ought
to have a good dose of tonic from a friend who is
expert in the noble art of razz. Above all, next
year's freshmen must be taught to take neither the
drone nor the cynic seriously.
MORE AVIATION ACTIVITY.
The early awakening of the present administra-
tion at Washington to the necessity of an efficient
aviation force, both on land and sea, is a source of
great relief to those who since the close of a war
in which flying showed its immense possibilities,
have viewed with increasing impatience and dis-
appointment the lethargy of the United States in

WOULDN'T YOU JUMP OUT

If you suddenly remembered
That that fire insurance policy
On your home and
All your family idols
Had expired last Friday
And had not been renewed?
SURE YOU WOULD!
And you-ought to.

You should start running

As through the Arcade walk I passed,

The words I uttered could scarcely pass.
I went into a lunch room near,
Thinking that food would bring me cheer.
I ordered milk and shredded wheat,
But alas, I could not eat

present, and even should there be a decrease in freight rates, the ad-

freight. We respectfully solicit your valued inquiries, and guarantee
our prices are right.
