Awakening from a disregard of the
hazardous conditions which have ac-
companied the expansion of motor
vehicle traffic, Americans have at last
taken steps on a large scale to make
the country a safer place in which to
live. The Second National Confer-
ence on Highway Problems, called by
Secretary Hoover, has just ended its
meetings in Washington, after haying
drawn up a model code of laws which
will be submitted to the state legis-
latures for adoption. .
This -code calls for a standardiza-
tion of laws, which would do away
with the confusion now attendant to
touring through different states. It
calls for the abolition of regulations
which are too -lenient, speed laws
which Are more liberal than fifteen
miles per hour in the residential cen-
ters and thirty-five miles per hour in
the open country, regulations which
make it possible to obtain drivers'
permits before having attained the
age of 16 years, rules which allow a
permit to be held longer than three
years without renewal, an.d laws which
sanction license plates following the
car when it is sold.
Demand is also made by the code
for more drastic discipline of the class
of motor offenders known as "repeat-
ers," whose "mental and moral traits,"
according to the conference officials,
"should exclude them from the high-
ways." More adequate playgrounds
in order to keep the children off the
streets is another platform which is
included in the model set of statutes.
It is encouraging to know that ac-
tion is at last being taken to halt the
appalling loss of life and injury
which has been Increasing every day.
There is not an edition of a metro-
politan newspaper that does not de-
vote nearly a column to the terrible
toll which motor accidents have taken.
But until the meeting in Washington
no national efforts which might result
in far-reaching effects had been made
to relieve the condition.
A standard set of rules throughout
the country would relieve the perilous
traffic conditions, and the state legis-
latures should cooperate with the
movement by amending their statutes
so that they may be consistent with
the model code.
When Michigan's track team enters
the packed gymnasium at Ithaca to-
night to compete in the fifteenth an-
nual dual indoor track meet with
Cornell, there .will be retenated the
keen, competitive struggle that has
proved itself rich in tradition for a
period of twenty-four years. Begin
ning in 1902, track competition be-
tween Michigan and Cornell has de-
veloped until it is an illustration of
an almost perfect form of athletic
rivalry between the two universities.
Coincident with this --development
has been the observance of many
customs in connection with the meet
which have given'it an atmosphere of
unusual interest. Whether the meet
takes place at Cornell or at Michigan,
the same conditions prevail. -
One of these observances is the
continual playing of the band while
the races are run. Starting with the
crack of the pistol and playing fast or
slow tempo, as the length of the race
suggests, the music turns the crowded
gymnasium into bedlam at the finish
of each contest.
Another custom featured in the meet
is the formal attire of all the officials.
With the exception of the two coaches,
who absolve themselves from this
form of social proced&ire this prece-
dent has never been violated. - -Im-
mediately after the track meet, a
banquet is given, at which the teams,

officials, and alumni of both univer-
sities a're present.
It is significant that, regardless of
the outcome of the rivalry each year,
a strengthened good-fellowship is
pre-eminent and dominates the rela-
tions between the two teams.
Michigan is eager to be able to en-
gage in such competition with Cor-
nell each year, and to play her part
in fostering that spirit of sincere
friendship which should be present
in all forms of athletic rivalry.

"It is a remarkable fact that
at present the United States is
"rrecciving from Europe an amount
approximately equal to the whole
cf the reparations which Germany
is paying. The bulk of the receipts
from Germany is going to France,
who is not paying her war debts,
while the bulk of the payments
to the United States are made by
England, largely out of her own
resources."--Winston Churchill,
Chancellor of the Exchequer, in
the British House of Commons.
Chancellor of the Exchequer Win-
ston Churchill stated before Parlia-
ment that Great Britain must pay the
United States $500,000 daily for three
generations. France, in round num-
bers, owes four billions; Italy, in
round numbers, two billons; Ger-
many's reparation indebtedness is the
most staggering of history.
That is why Chancellor Churchill
saw fit, with justification, to call at-
tention frequently to the prosperity
and the credit ledger of the United
States. Beyond doubt, the early years
of the war were extremely profitable
years for the United States, while
European nations were shelling away
millions. Beyond doubt, the policy of
the United States in funding the debts
of tother nations is to secure the me-'
turn of loans with the greatest bene-
fit to itself.
Debt negotiation and debt argument
tenaciously hold the spotlight in world
affairs, with increasing bitterness,
while the formerly poignant, tender
consideration of the millions of hu-
man beings who were sacrificed in
company wif1 the money bags mani-
fests itself with diminishing fre-
quency. The horrible war is remem-
bered today, not so much . as the
ghastly shaimbles that it was, but as a
costly period: for- which the com-
batants will have to pay.
The payment, howeverw.will not be
so easily forgotten .as the men who
fell unsuspecting of \their quick
oblivion. The debts, inconceivably C
