be to round out our lives and make them as nearly
as possible, balanced and complete. The "grind"
spends so muchtime studying the serious thoughts
of others that he loses touch completely with the
delightfully human lighter side of life. The man
who goes in unreservedly for this and that and the
other "activity" has no time and little thought to
waste on the really serious problems, excepting as
he is forced into direct, personal contact with them.
The one is apt to become didactic and dry, the
other enthusiastic but superficial.
We, should try to avoid the extremes in this as
in other things. We shall come closer to the at-
tainment of the ideal if we spend a fair amount of
time at studying, in campus and social activities, and
in thinking of the problems which must be solved
if our own and others' lives are to be as full of pro-
ductive results as they should be. This broader
view is our awakening.
Ideals are the privilege of youth. From cradle
to early manhood they crowd out the material
things of life, and often Youth steps out into the
world with airy strides after a goal of intangible
abstraction, utterly blind to the existence of oppos-
ing realistic forces. But sooner or later the pure
idealist, like Shakepeare's Hamlet, finds himself
confronted with facts that he cannot evade, and
disillusion which totters his ornate throne of
dreams. Then it is that the unreasoning idealist
must learn to reason, or like the tragic Prince of
Denmark, be blown aside as chaff in the gale of
On the other hand. an equally unfortunate hand-
icap hampers that Youth which through circum-
stance or environment has lost' all its ideals and
illusions. For without some aesthetic or spiritual
tendencies life can mean only existence, which in
turn signifies the satisfying of physical desires, and
leads to vice or often crime. Germany's pre-war
development of material efficiency to the exclusion
of all else, culminating in the very commercializa-
tion of "Gott",bears witness to the depths to which
Zolaistic realism can delude.
There is only one alternative, then, from which
to choose. We must believe in our ideals; that is
important; but we must take them, to use an old-
saying, with a pinch of salt. We must realize that
there are facts, but not make them our God. We
must balance the abstract with the material. The
man who is able to take the aspirations of his aes-
thetic or spiritual nature and apply them to the real
things in life, the practical idealist, is the one who
will relese the bonds upon the craft of success.

GIFTS THAT MULTIPLY
We in America who have suffered comparatively
ittle as a result of the recent European war can
hardly appreciate the conditions that prevail in for-
eign countries and the need of all classes; we
American students with our electrically lighted,
team heated rooms and our regular three meals a
day, can hardly realize that in some European
:ountries University men and women are without
lecent shelter, are wearing tattered clothes and uni-
:orms, relics of pre-war days, and are not only un-
tble to obtain medical attention but are often forced
:o go without food.
Much less can we appreciate the ravages of hun-
,er and sickness which prevail among the peoples
f Asia and particularly among the Chinese. When
ye try to conceive of 45 ooo,ooo people starving
ind an area of 125,000 square miles being almost
levastated by thy. scourge of hunger and death, our
magination ceases to function and we are apt to
hrust such suffering from our minds as being too
:ar away from our consideration.
Such conditions do prevail, however, and if we
n this well-fed country are to be honest with the
-est of the world we must face the problem which
he serious conditions abroad have made. One way
we can do it is. through the nation-wide campaign
vhich has just been launched, under' the guiding
land of Herbert Hoover, for the purpose of rais-
ng funds to send to the relief of foreign students
ind of the millions of starving people in China. The
>rganization for this campaign in the University
ias been completed and solicitations will begin in
arnest Tuesday, combined with the European ap-
It may involve a little sacrifice for any one of us
o give three or four or five dollars of his allowance
o such a fund. But consider what such an amount
vill mean to persons in the condition of many whom
he money will go to save. With American funds
here worth many times their original value to us,
.nd with the cost of living lower in most cases
han we find it here, we can see what our gifts will
lo toward the relief of suffering. Our contributions
nultiply in transit.
We frequently go out for an evening, spend
rom two to four dollars, and think not a great
Leal of it. Can we not afford to sacrifice an even-
ng's entertainment for the aid of other human be-
ngs? The University of Illinois has raised more
han twice our quota. How well will Michigan
espond to the test?
HOW FAR ARE WE ASLEEP?
The charge that Michigan students are asleep has
een made so many times of late that sheer force
f repetition will convince us the statement is true
f we do not stop to analyze it. But is it unquali-
.edly true? Most of us are members of one of
wo groups: either we spend most of our time with
ur books and none in campus activities, or we pay
ttle attention to our books and devote ourselves
xclusively to the pursuit of purely temporary ends
avina to do with some phase of University life.
Each class exhibits the same shortcoming, a lack
f mental perspective. The aim of education should

We buy now a box of sweets,

A movie show and a fruit parfait
Completes the dirty work.
And when we'show her home again,

So we get a smile and handshake,
Just that - and nothing more.

And we know he hates expense,
