China, and the Island of Yap offered complexities
which tended to make their final settlement unlikely.
But in the first month of thesession most of the
great international questions have been disposed 01
in a manner highly satisfactory to the leading pow-
ers and to the world at large.
Secretary of State Charles Evans Hughes' plan
for the limitation and reduction of naval arma-
ments, the maintenance of the status quo of naval
bases and fortifications in the western Pacific, and
the holding of a ten year naval holiday was favor-
ably received almost immediately by the principal
powers. By this plan immediate reduction of the
fleets of England, Japan, and the United States
must take place, when details are arranged. As a
substitute for the Anglo-Japanese alliance, the re-
newal of which might cause serious international
perplexities, a pact was signed by the four leading
powers which among other things makes provisions
for the calling of conferences whenever a breech
of relations between two of the constituencies is
cited. By a diplomatic fete the controversy center-
ing around the Island of Yap has been settled on
terms advantageous to the United States. America
and her nationals will be accorded the same cable
rights and facilities on the Island as are possessed
by Japan. In addition to those mentioned numer-
ous accomplishments of less momentum but of no
small importance have been scored to the credit of
the men assembled at Washington.
All of which should tend to indicate that the con-
ference is one of action and 'not one in which
"words, words, words predominate" as Rudyard
Kipling incorrectly prophesied it would be.
Time, the wonder-worker.
Three years ago innocent people were looked upon
with suspicion, if not actually deprived of their
property, because they were Germans. Today a
combine is being formed to ship raw materials to
Germany, which is to be made into saleable prod-
ucts by means of the cheap labor obtainable there,
and then dumped back on the United States, with
no loss, we hope, to the philanthropic promoters of
the ambitious scheme.
Ernst Harzmeyer, a teutonic tar, has been pre-
sented with a British medal and loving cup by the
British consul at New York for his "gallantry and
humanity" to a shipwrecked crew abandoned on the
North Atlantic in 1914.

Night Editor-EDW. F. LAMBRECHT
Throughout six stages of man, weathering all the
vicissitudes and disillusionments of life, Christmas
remains ever cherished in the human heart, and its
sparkling halo of romance fades only with the ad-
vent of that last stage of all - complete oblivion.
To the college youth, with life and two weeks of
vacation in front of him, Christmas looms particu-
larly alluring. It means to him not only that glor-
ious day when the star-crested evergreen graces the
front parlor and the Yule log breathes a cozy
warmth from the crackling hearth, but also a fort-
night of complete relaxation from the "cares and
responsibilities" of University life, spent in the
midst of family and friends. It means the renew-
ing of old ccmraderies, and for some - we trust -
the making of fresh love affairs. Youth is san-
guine; and Christmas is the exquisite expression
of its spirit.
Today the exodus begins. Some students will stay
in Ann Arbor. Regardless of this, it may be said,
and without discredit to Michigan, that all approach
the temporary suspension of scholastic activities
with a sigh of relief. Even the opera stars are
anxious to get on 'the road. They long to realize
that date in Bay City, or the rendezvous at Indian-
apolis. And the remainder of us will not hesitate
to board the rolling stock headed for our native
Go to it, men and women of Michigan! Make
the coming two weeks extend a brimming cup of
joy wherever you may be. Forget all about your
books, if you will, as you scatter to different cities,
different states, and different regions; but remem-
ber one thing - your University. Leave Ann Ar-
bor as far behind as you like, but take Michigan
Boost Michigan. Talk Michigan, think Michi-
gan, dance Michigan, - until others may learn to
know, as you know, your University. With you
rests thefuture of Michigan, with you the caliber of
man and woman who will stride her campus in the
years to come. Others can be enthused only through
enthusiasm; they can realize only through your
Then let the curtain rise! May the drama of
Christmas be a fantasy of joy whose music charms
the hearts of all! But as the men and women of
Michigan make their entrance into the setting to
play their part, let them bear one thing in mind.
There is a difference between boosting and boast-
ing. Michigan wants the boost.
MORE THAN WORDS
When the present conference on the limitation of
armaments opened in Washington last month the
problems confronting the delegates assembled were
so complex and grave in their nature that the in-
telligent element of the public was dubious as to
just what would be accomplished. Practically all of
the powers had interests in the Far East which
would have to be safeguarded in connection with
any decision on a limitation.of either naval or mili-
tary armaments. Problems pertaining to France,i

OF THE UNIVERSITY AND THE RESI-
DENTS OF ANN ARBOR OUR BEST
WISHES FOR A HAPPY HOLIDAY SEA-
SON AND EXPRESS OUR APPRECIA-
TION FOR THEI RPATRONAGE DURING
What was that bell which rent the air
And far across to me was borne?
Must be the Chimes; they sound no rare
At eight o'clock this Friday morn.
What was that cry which cut the air
And rang so deeply in my ear?
With happiness its tones declare
'Tis o'er, the last class of the year.
What was that shriek which pierced the air
And banished every pout and frown?
It means the end of text book care,
It means that trains are leaving town.
We've waited for the engine's scream,
We've craved the loco's roar,
We've longed to realize the dream
That out o' here we'd tore.
So if the meanin' of this rhyme
Dont penetrate yer dome,
We'll tell yeh now, it's Christmas time,
An' we are goin' home.
You can bet your boots that 95 per cent of the
men who go around wearing galoshes have respect-
able sized holes in their shoes.
I look on the near-saloon
And the near-saloon looks on me,
- And musing there an hour alone
I dream that men might still be free.

To the Patient Readers
(With apologies to Moore)
Tis the day of vacation; for a good many miles
All around our white campus you'll see naught but
For the long weeks of waiting have finally passed,
And the days of vacation have rolled 'round at last.
So good-bye, gentle reader, the best of good cheer
For a real Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year !
