No recommendation from high governmental au-
thority will operate to produce economy in buying
so forcefully as these conditions will. What is
needed right now to stem the tide, is not economy
but wise buying which will create a growing de-
mand for staple consumption goods. As soon as
the present stock is exhausted, industry will again
pick up momentum, workmen will be able to work,
and a new era of prosperity will dawn: Instead of
attempting to make the existing stock stretch out
over a long period, we should strive to deplete it as
we can by sensible consumption. Not much hope
for commercial recovery can be held out until the
necessity for new goods forces renewed demands
upon the manufacturers.
JAMES HAMILTON LEWIS
The man in public life who escapes being iden-
tified in the popular mind by unimportant details
of physical appearance or insignificant episodes in
his life can indeed count himself lucky. From this
playful habit of the public mind, J. Hamilton Lewis,
who will speak tonight under the auspices of the
Oratorical association, has had no miraculous es-
cape. It is doubtful if the "average man" has not
learned facts about the ex-senator in something like
the following order: () his sartorial splendor,
(2) his hirsutal superiority, and (3) his' immortal
encounter with the waitress who forestalled his
pleasantries by saying, "I'm used to being kidded
But if the "average man" will pass through the
realm of "small-talk" to that of accomplishment, he
will find that ex-Senator Lewis has long been a
prominent figure in politics, having twice beenpro-
posed for vi.ce-president of the United States and
having filled several other important public offices.
Because of his long experience in politics, his
knowledge of national problems, and his ability as'
a speaker, J. Hamilton Lewis' speech tonight prom-
ises to be well worth attending.
TRACK BURNERS NEEDED
Coach Steve Farrell is working out his track
men daily in Waterman gymnasium, but he has
only about sixty candidates for the Varsity team.
He ought to have more. Last year we depended to
a considerable degree on the ability of Captain
Johnson but now, without his unusual point-getting
help we are dependent more on the general qual-
ity of the squad.4
Sixty good men can more than make a team, but
sixty tryouts is not enough. Other universities have
had much larger turnouts for track this year. Why
not Michigan? The larger schools have in the
neighborhood of a hundred or more. If we cannot
turn out as well as they, have we a right to blame
anyone but ourselves if we fail to measure up to
Some men will, by the law of averages, turn up
ineligible at the end of this semester, and others
won't measure up to standard; we have to make al-
lowances for that. If we really mean business, let's
get some more men out on the floor of Waterman
gymnasium and not be long about it.
Penn State has a new departure - a domestic
science course for men. We haven't any home ec-
onomics department, but wouldn't next semester
be a good time for Michigan to inaugurate some
such course as "The Art of Aesthetic Tea-Drink-
ing," with classes to be held in Waterman gymna-

WAIT FOR THE REASONS
No wonder an immediate wave of resentment
and surprise followed announcement Thursday of
the discontinuation of the Hop. Michigan's oldest
and greatest social institution, around which so
many memories and traditions have grown up that
the event seemed as permanent as the University
itself, could never be brought to an end without a
tremendous stir of protest and discussion. But the
question is, should that discussion be running
amuck with talk of indignation meetings before the
committee on student affairs has given the reasons
for its action?
Let's get all the facts before we render our ver-
dict. 'The committee, on which the student body is
represented, realizes the place held by the Hop as
well as we do, and appreciates the seriousness of
the step it has taken. Obviously, then, it took ac-
tion only after full consideration and when evi-
dence to support its reasons had been brought to-
gether. The campus certainly is owed some ex-
planation of the move ; and, on the other hand; the
campus owes it to the committee to withhold judg-
ment until that explanation is given.
* NEEDED: A BUYING STIMULUS
Lloyd George has asked the people of England to
practice the most rigid economy in order to help
overcome the evil effects of the present economic
depression in that country. The question arises
naturally enough, should we in America strive to
attain that end by the same means?
Here we are confronted with a great temporary
suspension of industry, universal in some lines,
only partial in others. Hundreds of thousands of
working men and women have been thrown out
of employment with the result that their only
source of income has been cut off. Various con-
tributing factors have been in operation for some
time which have tended to bring about this condi-
tion. Manufacturers claim that ever since 1914,
the efficiency of labor has been on the decline and
that the growing costs of labor and raw materials
have combined to force prices upward. Laborers
and the great classes of people who are neither lab-
orers nor manufacturers, in the strict industrial
sense of the word, contend that the costs of living
have increased more rapidly than have their in-
comes. No single cause in a movement so great
as this can be singled out and held to sole blame.
Many other elements enter into the situation in-
cluding the heavy exchange rate favorable to this
country which operates to keep foreign buyers out
of our markets, the period of injudicious specula-
tion which always exists with an extended rise in
prices and which has been markedly present in the
past years, and the sudden loss of confidence in the
immediate commercial future of various industries
throughout the nation.
We are now in the midst of the depression. So
many people have been thrown out of work that
much of our former actual demand has ceased to
be even potential demand. People out of work and
without money simply cannot buy. Others who
still retain their jobs are buying in minimum por-
tions because they feel that a general decline in
