As government leader in the Commons
he perpetuated brilliantly the great
traditions of his predecessors, Disra1li,
Gladstone, Campbell-Bannerman and
Arthur Balfour; as Chancellor of the
'Exchequer, he was a most potenti
factor in England's successful con-
duct of the War; while as Prime Min-j
ister, his brief tenure of office is
marked by some of the wisest end
most beneficent administration on rec-
ord. His life touched many things
and none which it did not adorn.
Eminently practical in his turn of
mind, Carnegie-like in his shrewd
Scotch discernment, it is to Mr. Law's
credit that he retained to the last the
simple and lovable qualities of a good
fellow and at the same time maintain-}
ed an extraordinary, degree of intel-
lectual interests. Of his tenacity, fit-
eral-mindedness and refusal to con-
cede anything without proof, many
stories are told, perhaps the best
being one of Mr. Lloyd-George's when
that adept politician was seeking to
asperse Mr. Law before an audience.
He related that while taking a rail-
road journey in Law's company he re-
marked that the shepherds had shorn
therr sheep. Mr. Law, gazing from
the car window, averred that at least
half of the animals had been clipped,
although he was not prepared to agree
with his companion without further
investigation.
Concerning the ultimate view which
history may take of' Mr. Law, it is idle
to speculate. Not improbably, he will
be regarded rather as 'a man of great.
powers than as an enduring influence
in British politics. But it is a tribute
to his memory to which we need add
little that in his long life of political
struggle, he made Fterally millions of
friends among all classes, that his
personal character survived the test
of merciless attack and that even his
political enemies were usually among
his warmest friends. His death at a
time when brains were never more
needed in the world is a calamity of
inestimable magnitude, although there
can be nothing but joy at his release
from months of excruciating suffering.
In our own country in particular, his
career merits attention and emulation;
for he represented perfectly what al-
ways has been rare in our national
politics-an intellectual man who took1
politics seriously and labored unceas-
ingly for their betterment.

CONSISTENCY
(The New York Times)
It is a sound contention that the
Volstead act, being the law, should be
enforced like any other law. But it
is inconsistent to hold that those re-
sponsible for its enforcement should
be selected in any other way than
those who have to 'do with the en-
forcenient of other laws. Comnis-
stoner Hayne's diluted measures pro-
posing that all Oxisting officials in the
prohiblition enforcement s e r v i c e,
though they were not selected under
civil service lreguliPrin, should) 'be
transferred to the elassified service
and continue to hold their positions
without further exam'nations, is as
illogical and unsound as a proposal
would be that all the plants operating
under Federal permits at the moment
I should be permanently validated with-
out being subject to any inquiry what
they were manufacturing within.
Can it be that the government is
able to determine by examinations the
competency of persons to perform
every function, from the handling of
ma 1 and the minting of money to
filling the most modest clerkship, .andi
yet not have the discernment to choose'
persons, of honesty and technical fit-
ness for the administration of the pro-
hibition law? Why should the Anti-
Saloon League, which resists public
scrutiny of its affairs, be permitted to!
share in the appointment of publ:c
officers? If this principle is admitted
in practice, the ultimate responsibil-
ity will pass to private hands.
The President of the Civil Service
I Reform. League, Will'am Dudley
Foulke, has taken the only position
that can be consistently taken.. It is
the only one that will makeit possible!
to eliminate the "spoils system,"
which, as he states, "prevails, in the
enforcement Bureau" and which is "to
a large extent" the source of the
prohibition scandals. Character is an
essential item in .the qualifications,
and this a disinterested civil service
board should be as able to determine
as an interested private organization.
But what is'of most importance is

THE UNION LIFE MEMBERSHIP
With the opening of the final day ofj
the Union life membership campaign,
the problem arises in the minds of
many students as to the why and
wherefore of taking out the extended
privileges of life membership in the
Union. The men who have combed
fraternity and rooming houses during(
the past two days, always trying toI
impress the financial advantages of
"doing it now," have succeeded in
signing a considerable number of
men. Among those who have refused
to sign, many have uttered the com-
mon reason that they see no reason
why they rshould be considered in-
debted to the Union. They have for-
gotten what it would be without that
ever welcoming clubhouse at Michi-
gan.
It is a wonderful feeling of pride
which penetrates ,the student's spirit
when he first enters the Union build-
ing, feeling that he is a member of
that wonderful organization, that the,
structure itself is as much his as it is
anyone. The privileges of member-
ship, falling to every man on the
campus automatically, seem sufficient
to give the student a certain feeling
of "belonging." Realization of the ob-
ligations which also fall upon him
when he ava'ls himself of the numer-
ous joys and conveniences in using
the building seldom is experienced by
men who have none other than an ex-
ternal connection with the institution.
Contrary to the opinion of many,
the Union is not simply a gift, bought
and paid for by the alumni body. It
is a building made possible, but not
wholly paid for, by the funds and ef-
forts of iVMichigan's graduates. Cer-
tain obligations still remain. It
should be the self-inspired desire of
every Michigan man to take out his
life membership as soon as he is
financially able. The foe is a. nominal
one and enta'Is a sacrifice hardly
comparable to the many personal
benefits derived from it.

with the requested pledge. It is im-
possible that the American pmblic will,
remember from campaign to campaign
that th's country, because of the large
measure of personal freedom given to
its younger generations, is constantly,
in need of social beacons.
Membership in the University "Y.
W." is free but the members are re-
quested to give some small financial
support to the organization. The Y.

cated their lives to social service,

Ever on the alert to supply the stu-
dent body with fresh, accurate news,
The Daily has conceived the idea of
publishing a six o'clock extra edition
Saturday, November 5 giving a de-
tailed telegraphic account of the
Michigan-Northwestern game at Ev-
anston. This is the first time in the
first time in the history of The Daily,,
and, to our knowledge, the first time
in the history of college journalism,'
that an edition of this kind has made
an appearance. The larger number
of students cannot attend the contestI
in person, yet as a means of com-
paring Michigan's strength w.th Chi-
cago's, the game is important, and
The Daily means to give the students
the first complete account, and this,
one hour after the final whistle has
sounded.
