The accusation has been frfquently
made that Michigan spirit wanes withr
the coming of the first signs of spring,
that it is only fully aroused during
the brief season when football calls
everyone to his feet. This fact is
obviously untrue as one can observe
at any baseball game, but it remains
for the student body to demonstrate
to the members of the Varsity track
team tonight that they are staunchly
supporting them in the events which
take place at Ferry field on Satur-
Turn out tonight with all your en-
thusiasm and let Coach Farrell and
his men know that you are there.
The art of correct reading is some-
thing which any student should be
more than glad to acquire. A major-
ity of college students do not make
the most of their reading opportuni-
ties; they spend many hours thumbing
the pages of the latest short story
magazines, special preference always
being given to the magazine that runs
the wor.st trash in its columns. Onl
the other hand, there is the college
grind, a somewhat rare specimen
these days, who devotes his spare'
reading time to a perusal of the
weightiest articles on file in the li-
brary with never a thought of adding;
a trace of variety to his education
by reading a throbbing novel of the

people need a little something to add

practically all his time reading de-

the newspapers, and books that have
been suppressed, is doing himself a
great deal of harm. There is a dan-

material too seriously. It is neces-

Well I went to all my classes to-

My professors were as h.1ppy as

with their usual, cheery, "Are you

country are more restless, more eag-
er to change their positions and status
than the people of other civilizedI
countries? The fluctuating financial
situation both locally and nationally,
the change in the purposes or profes,
sion of an individual and the care-'
free independence of the average per-
son seems to suggest that this state-
ment might be so.I
Foreigners visiting this country and
natives who travel in foreign coun-I
tries will generally testify to this
truth. Perhaps there is a reason for
this dissatisfied spirit of Americans.
In the first place the constantly in-

One of the foremost factors in sta-

customs. America is perhaps build-
ing up a few traditions but it has
only 300 years of grovth back, of
it as compared to three of four times
that length of time in England. Amer-
ican soldiers visiting England often
offend English comrades by speaking
lightly of such renowned exhilbits
as crown jewels, a'ncient statues and
other treasures dear to the English
heart. Mt. Vernon and Bunker hill

Yes, we are a restless people. Rest-

not careless or irresponsible with
it. We have an arrogant disdain for
tradition and an egotistical opinion
of our own ability. To strike a happy
medium, to come down from our pe-
destal of self-satisfaction and to mod-

same time to avoid the inactivity and
too ethereal reverence of traditions

About that Dad of curs.
He's spending jack to make us crack

A Dad's a pal, at least that's mine.

There's no one else of just his kind.

For that Dad, you know he'll say
"It's hard, I know, but I'll get along,

EDUCATIONAL ELTING POTS
The war made it more than ever ap-
parent that whole masses of people
were being led about by the nose. Men
fought without knowing why they
were fighting; storms of passion arose
out of misapprehension. Therefore
the resolve was taken in the heat of
the battle, that the masses should be
lravened by education, and the men
should be taught to live peaceably
side by side through seeing one an-
other clearly. In the United States
the first material development of this
idea was the formation of the Com-
mittee of One Hundred under the lead-
ership of Elihu Root. Its purpose,
announced early in March, is to bring
to the American voter the "facts
which form the necessary basis of all
sound reasoning upon international
But it was to a school of even
greater scope that the idealists of the
war looked fvrward. They would
found a university somewhere in No
Man's Land where students from
every nation might gather, as in the
famous Mediaeval universities, ex-
change their ideas on God and Man,
and hear the most learned lectures
of every nation. Such a university
would be a clearing house for inter-
Fortunately before the calm of
peace has cooled the iron, another im-
portant step in this direction has been
taken,; in this case by law. In The
Hague, the center of neutrality,Tan
acdaemy for the study of international

country may send qualified students,I
including diplomatic representatives,
