IICHIGAN has earned the reputation of being
the best-dressed University west of New
gland. For the past decade or two it has been
radition among Michigan men never to appear
campus or in class without all the appurte-
ices that would qualify the wearer to attend
informal party.
In earlier years it was driven home to fresh-
n by means of cartoon, comic verse, and satiri
essay that the clothing affected by the average
t-year man was reminiscent of the hay field and
hog barn, with the result that the clothes worn
Michigan men have lost not only individuality
I comfort, but utility as well.
A few Spartan individuals have dared brave
criticism of their fellows and appear where
y pleased attired in any way they saw fit, which
ans, generally speaking, that they go to class
corduroy pants and sweaters or leather jackets,
they are few in number.
Michigan needs a sartorial emetic; needs a
urn to the old conventions of the turtle-neck
pater and the green striped pants; needs to
itself from the toils of the custom tailor and
padded shoulders, for standardization of cloth-
conventions leads inevitably to standardiza-
a of thought, and if the University is to con-
ae as the fostering mother of intellectual free-
n it must not be allowed to cast each mind from
same die.
And so we cry - a bit hopelessly - for more
ow cords, more leather jackets, more sweaters,
less pier glasses for men, for when they can-
sit in the school bench without the assurance
they are sartorially perfect they are no longer

To the Editor of The Daily:
I am glad that a well known alumnus has taken
the pains to explain just how and why the Varsity
Band became the R. O. T. C. band. It is important
that we know the facts. I am in no wise satisfied,
however, with the explanation. That we want a
peppy band and one that drills well, none would
deny; but this could have been accomplished without
turning our Varsity band into an R. O. T. C. unit, and
especially without changing the picturesque uniforms
and the name, or supplanting "Michigan" by "R. O.
T. C." on the drum. But I explained all this in my
last letter and made proposals toward restoring and
preserving the Michigan character of the band.
The resentment against the extreme and colorless
changes introduced by the R. O. T. C. is more general
even than I had realized. Students, alumni and fac-
ulty men have been telling me so, and at the Ohio
game I heard comment from the crowd. "I don't like
that R. O. T. C. on the drum." Then a little later "I
miss the capes with the yellow lining, but I presume
that they looked old-fashioned. We'll have to keep
modern." The original change was suggested by some
Detroit alumni, we are told. But it is fair to assume
that the alumni did not foresee how far the R. 0.
T. C. would intrude. It was at first merely a matter
of drill.
These alumni no doubt did not understand the
aims and purpose of the R. O. T. C. and the same is
often the case with entering students. The R. O. T. C.
is not so much a part of the university as a unit of
the United States Army It is used by the army as a
means of military propaganda among the educated
classes of the country. This is evident from the
tactics used.
In the first place the military. uselessness of the
R. O. T. C. training is notorious. In regular army
circles and at the front the R. O. T. C. boys are classed
along with other "60-day wonders" and not taken
very seriously But in the protecting bosom of the
Campus they are taken very seriously, flattered with
honors, university credit, eventually with pay checks.
There are military balls with pretty girls as "Hono-
rary Colonels." The girls are allowed in the rifle
teams. And those marvelous uniforms. This is an
especially typical point and illustrates the methods
and aims of the R. O. T. C. Just after the war they
had regular old army outfits -somewhat above the
grade of burlap. But it was soon discovered that the
boys' military spirit throve in direct proportion to
the quality of uniform. Better and better have the
uniforms become, until now an Admiral of the Navy
would scarcely dare walk down the Diagonal for fear
of looking shabby. This costs money, but it evidently
pays the War Dept. in military spirit and the result-
ing bigger appropriations.
Most incidious is their policy of encroachment
from within. Certain courses are offered only thru
the R. 0. T. C., as is now the University band, so that,
the student wishing to benefit from them must per
force join the R.O. T. C. whether he is so inclined or
not. A young student spoke to me after reading the
other letter. "I am not at all militaristic,"-he said,
"but I am joining the R. O. T. C. so I can play in the,
band." Another\told me almost the same -he want-
ed an aeronautics course. But why can't these activi-
ties be kept separate?
We can be thankful that the R.O. T. C. is not
compulsory at Michigan, and has not yet got to the
position where it can oust members of the faculty
(cf, Ohio State). It is growing tho. Do we want ourt
campus militarized at a time when all the world is
ilonging and striving for peace? and good will?
Whether or not the R. O. T. C. should exist on the
Campus, our band should be a Michigan band.

WASHINGTON--It seems a far
cry from the Sino-Japanese-Rus-
sian situation in the hinterland of
Manchuria to the issues of the
coming presidential campaign at
home; yet there is a possible con-
Who' can say to what extent Sec-
retary Stimson's moves for cooper-
ation with the League of Nations
to keep peace in the orient may re-
vive the league issue?
Stimson drew a sharp distinction
in authorizing Prentiss Gilbert,
American consul at Geneva, to sit
in if invited on league council
dealings with the Manchurian war
threat problem.
Actual American participation in
league plans to bring the covenant
of the league into play was not
A Different Situation.
But if the big leaguers of the
council at Geneva, M. Briand et al.,
took up the question of calling the
nine power Pacific treaty or the
Kellogg-Briand anti-war pact into
service to stave off Sino-Japanese
hostilities, quite a different situa-
tion would present itself. The Unit-
ed States is a party to both those
treaties, actually the sponsor of
That distinction, no doubt, was
quite clear in Mr. Stimson's mind.
Whether it would be equally impor-
tant to such noted foes of Ameri-
can participation in League of Na-
tions activities as Borah of Idaho,
Johnson of California or "Jim"
Reed of Missouri was another mat-
Henry Stimson has led about as
exciting a career as even any war-
time cabinet officer in Washington.
He has had Latin-American rev-
olutions by the half dozen to con-
tend with. The present Sino-Jap-

has been called out, like the village

The new Manchurian outbreak
presented a more difficult diplo-
matic problem for Washington by
far than the previous Sino-Russian
clash. I
. That time Stimson plumped
right out with a formal demand on
both parties to remember their
commitments under the Kellogg-
Briand pact, which, incidentally,
was not actually in effect at the
This time, with China and Japan
involved, the situation required
moreldelicate handling. Japanese
sensibilities-in particular the pos-
sibility of Japanese resentment of
any American gesture-had to be
carried in mind.
That prompted the motion to
leave initiative to the League of
Nations; but with public assurance
that Washington would back up by
inde endent action the course the

Yet how will that old group of
senate irreconcilables feel about it?

Will they read it as a side-door en-

Will that bring the league issue
back to life in the coming cam-

The Student Health Service has had many re-
quests to examine students who are worried about
tuberculosis. We have been asked to explain the
diagnosis of tuberculosis and especially the skin test
(Mantoux) in greater detail.
The method of diagnosing early tuberculosis has
undergone great change in the last decade. Where
formerly the physician came to a positive diagnosis
on the family history of tuberculosis, on the history
of exposure to the bacilli, on such symptoms as loss
of weight, cough, sputum, hemorrhage, fever, pleurisy
and such signs as could be found by careful exami-
nation of the chest supplemented by x-ray, certain
cases of beginning tuberculosis were missed. Here,
up until this last fall, all students who had histories
of exposure to tuberculosis or any other cardinal
symptoms, have always been x-rayed and "followed
This year for the, first time, the following im-
proved procedure has been used. All entering women,
871, were given a skin test similar to the Schick test
for diphtheria or the Dick test for scarlet fever. A
preparation called tuberculin was injected into the
skin of the arm. If a red halo appeared about the
site of injection (usually within 48 hours), the test
was read as positive. The interpretation of a positive
test is that the patient has at some time had a tuber-
culosis infection. When the test has been read posi-
tive, and this occurred in about 38% of the 871
