large sums of money for their contri-
The commnittee at Michigan is now
appointed but the nature of its work
is as yet undecided. With so many
other universities completing their'
contributions already, the work of the
committee is definitely cut out for it
and no time must he lost in getting the,
machinery in working order. Michi-
gan men and women can do their partt
in helping out a worldl cause whose!
success or failure will determine the!
rise or fall of nearly half of Europe.
No institution is subject to more
criticism, just and unjust, more vitu-
peration, andl more (listrust than the
daily press. Perh laps 5t hf isi so be-
cause the r'es'i appears III the pulp-
lic eye with so uinuch mnore regular-
ity an~d frequency than any other pub-r
lic institution. In fact, appearing be-
( .orc the public is the very' function
of the daily newspap~er. Each and ev-S
i~y day, and often several times daily..J
the newspaper must conin forth and
lay itself open to more attacks, more
criticism, and1 more vituperation.
The value of the p~ress is mnany re-
spects is unidcre-Ainiated. To the tin-
educated it is a source of education;
to the educated it is a medlium of. in-
formation; to society it is a (lemocrati.
ring force; to crooked p)olitical it is a
deadly enemy', and to the public in
general it is a liumble P~crvant. Sure-
ly -services ,such as the sc nore tlhan
comipensate for the few instance i of
"yellow" journalism that. crop up nowj
.Without newspaj ers it would be im-
possible to keep informed of the im-
portant doings in the community; andI
much less of the nation and the world; I
inter-national relations would slip
back to the plane which they occu-
pied two hundlred years ago; national
politics would be reduced to mere lo-j
cal issues; powerful oligarchies would
work destruction unhampered by fear
of public exposure; and inter-com-
munity distrust would be fostered by4
ignorance. The. daily press because
of its tremendous circulation has prov-
ed to be a most deadly enemy to po-
litical trickery. Many so-called shady
deals would escape detection and the
tricksters escape punishment were it
not for the public exposure given of
them through the press.
Because' of the " practicability of
reaching the masses simultaneously
the daily press is of inestimable value;
and so long as it must continue to de-
pond upon public opinion in general
for support its good services will go
on. But an -adeqnate, realization of its
functions. is necessary for the proper
appreciation of the press.

The reason for his lonely flight,

And plunged him in dejection.

Before he went to bed.

And heart-corroding woe;
And all because he couldn't name
This grief, which hurt him so.
But one day, resting on a piece
Of petrified sub-stratum,

The money which 75,000 students
earned during the summner by working
in the mines and factories was prac-
tically valueless by the further defla-
ti n f c re c . U ell yz n srunning rife, and those who in pre-
vious years worked from four to eight
hours a day during the college term
now are deprived of means of earn-
ing their own livelihood. The self-
help enterprises, which operate kitch-
ens and try to aid the neediest cases'
are breaking down from lack of capi-
tal. Professors are being forced to
leave the universities and engage in
#unskilled labor in order to keep their
families from starvation. As for sci-
entific research, it is at a complete
standstill. A visitor to one of the larg-
est hospitals in Qermany reports that
insulin, the new cure for diabetes, al-1
ready used in America for twelve
mnonths, was unknown there.j
The Student Friendship Fund for
three years has been the life saver to
which the educational life of GermanyI
has been clinging. Up to now it has
acted in the capacity of helping the
students to help themselves,-encour-I
aging them to organize their own en-
terprises for aiding the neediest in the
miatter of food, clothing, books, liviiig
quarters. But now these students are
becoming less and less able to help
themselves. Unless America helps
them thruogh the present emergency;
they will be obliged to abandon thmeir
university caeers--not to go to workf
for there is no work. Rather, as one
observer predicts, "They will become
the prey of the various extreme politi-
cal parties and form the nucleus of
forces for civil war."
