"Your materialism is superficial
your nobility of soul is' fundamen-
tal. Your greatness rests not in
your amazing natural resources,
your minerals, oil and virgin soil,
but in the energy and enterprise
of your people. The American
destiny is fraught with high
promise."-J. St. Loe Stragchey,
editor of the London Spectator, in
a radio farewell address to the
United States. after a seven weeks'
To many, it is a somewhat pertinent
fact, worthy of some consideration,
that when we return to the Univer-
ity after the holiday vacation, it will
be in the year 1926 (A.D.) To the in-
different, it means nothing; to thel
weary, "another year;" and to the
wise, "an opportunity." In spite of
he plaints and dire phophesies of
the gloomists, the nation is not going
on ,,the rocks, the "younger genera-
tion" is not speeding on to perdition,
nor is everyone making the great trek
to Florida .
Although, in retrospect, we might
look somewhat dubiously on the
achievements of the first woman gov-
ernor in Texas and the Scopes and
Mitchell trials, we can reflect with
some merited enthusiasm on some of,
the achievements of the past year:
the Locarno Pact, the arbitration of
the Tacna-Arica boundary dispute, the
..pt action of the League of Na-
in stopping the Greco-Bulgarian
outbreak, and the internationalization
of the student federations of the

tion's policy toward farm relief. In
his address, the President strongly
condemned some of the proposed
price-fixing bills in no uncertain
terms . He advanced his own plans,
which provided for co-operative mark-
eting measures, the formation of a co-
operative marketing association, and
active aid in the department of agri-
culture for the farmers of the coun-
The administration expected an en-
dorsement of the President's policies,
but such was not forthcoming,-he
apparently failed to convince the
farmers of the value of his measures.
Consequently, the middle western
farm groups are expected to support
the. more radical bills to be proposed
in the Senate this week. Represent-
ative Dickinson, Republican, of Iowa,

use eooyprnment agencies for price-
fixing of p'rcouct If which there is a
surplus. Senator Cummins, also of
Iowa, will propose another price-fix-
ing bill, similar to that of his col-
As a resuit of the administration's
policies and their lack of support,
there is raised the possibility of a po-
litical revolt in the middle west next
year, and perhaps a presidential can-
didate in 1928. Senator Capper, Re-
publican, of Kansas, who is considered
by many as the logical leader of this
party, believes that only immediate
adjustment of freight rates, the secur-
ing of reliable marketing information,
and better credit arrangements, will
put the farmer back on his feet, se-
cured, perhaps, by more vigorous leg-
islation than that proposed by the
chief executive.
Certainly the economic status of the
farmer should be improved at once.
Price fixing would probably remedy
the situation only temporarily at best.
The President's policy seems the most
practical one: co-operative marketing
measures, and active aid in the de-
partment of agriculture. These, cou-
pled with financial relief,-reasonable
credit facilities,-would alleviate the
l unfortunate existing conditions. The
i administration's plan is safe, sane,
and practical. Why not use it?

To the Editor:
It is gratifying to see the fine atti-
tude and courage shown by President
Little during the few months he has
been at the head of the University.
In his address at the citizen's recep-
tion, he gave voice to the mutual in-
terests of citizens and of the Univer-
sity, expressing the spirit of co-opera-
tion between the University and citi-
zens necessary to accomplishing the
work the University is supposed to
do. His inaugural address was full of
sympathy for the students who find
themselves on the campus for the first
time, bewildered and discouraged by
the strange situation, the tortuous, if
not the torturing, processes of enter-
ing college, and suggeted practical
ways of helping them to find them-
selves quickly, and to get the idea
that the University wants to help
them. Now the President is taking
steps to help the student body to ridl
itself of the activities of the bootleg-
ger, emphasizing the duty to uphold
the state and nation.
President Little is taking advance

Daily to wrap up your shoes or some-
thing, and then when you get home
your famnily will see it.
Which leads us to think how futile
it is to write for a newspaper. Of
course a certain amount of people
read it, but have ever thought to how
many entirely foreign uses a news-
paper is put? Wrapping thinks, cov-
ering thinks, hiding thinks, and some
people even put large piece of it inside
their shoes to keep their feet warm.
Thus they walk on our labored writ-
ing at every step, and no one knows
that they are even doing it. Such is
life. Someone is always walking on
one's greatest efforts, and the rest of
the world doesn't even know that they
are doing it.

You could hear the boys snoring for

But in the wee hours from under

Ann Arbor, 1\lich., Dec. 18.-Miss
Effie Snorp, whom you must all know
by this time, will leave Ann Arbor at
12:35 P. M. today for her home in
Northern Michigan. The name of the
town is Flyspeck (you can find on
anyy map) and the nearest railroad
station is Milesaway.
The Michigan Central will give Miss
Snorp a private train with three and a
half engines to take her to Milesaway
Because of the narrowness of the
berths on the average sleeper, it has
been found necessary to construct a
special sleeper for Effie. This car is
designed along the general lines used
in the average bat car except that it

Comedy Club is presenting Bernard
Shaw's comedy in four scenes, "Great
Catherine," Tuesday and Wednesday
evenings, January 12 and 13, in the
Mimes theatre.
On Shaw's own admission, it is his
single bravura farce, a broad unman-
nered and unmoral piece, filled with
a slapstick hardly a step above cus-
tard pies and lovely ladies. The
Catherine he treats is a maidenly
woman, a German with a fraulein ac-
cent, the dignity of a Juno and the
passion of a fishfag. A glorious crea-
ture, but a heroine no more than
Joan, the Saint, or Candida, the devil.

I-p HINK of good will not only as a Christmas suggestion.
Make it a part of your year 'round creed. Practice it daily.
Cultvate the habit continually. You will be the greatest beneficiary.
But Christmas time, when this spirit of good will is most in
the air, and most in the minds of men, is a good time to consider
it carefully. Carefully lest when the spell of the holiday spirit is
spent, we again neglect good will. For the heritage of good will
to the individual is contentment and happiness, to industry it is
growth and a good name, to society it is peace and prosperity.
Without this saving quality towards his fellows, no individual
may consider himself successful. He has neglected his greatest
opportunities. He has sold his birthright for a mess of pottage in
living for himself alone. He finds himself cold to those finer
sentiments of mankind which are a true measure of greatness.
Nor can an institution long exist without good will. It is the
firm foundation upon which every great industry is founded. It is
the power behind governments that makes them strong, just as it is
the quality within the hearts of men that makes them great-that
makes friends for them.
From Bethlehem comes our greatest lesson in good will.
Christ taught us. But we soon forget. It is his birth we celebrate
with perhaps too little thought to its real significance.
