took the freshmen in last fall with the under-
standing that they would stay with them for the
entire first year.
This is undoubtedly true but it would be folly
for the landladies to argue that they would not
have taken the first year men in if they had
known that they would stay for only one se-
With the total enrollment of students, particu-
larly the freshman and sophomore classes, down
far below that of previous years, there was a
large over-supply of rooms this fall. Many room-
ing houses were not filled. Landladies welcomed
the opportunity to take any students they could
get, on almost any conditions that the student
wished tq make.
The average student does not feel that he owes
anything to the Ann Arbor landlady. He feels
that he has paid for any service that he has
received from her. He feels that, on certain
occasions, he has paid for more than he has re-
ceived from her.
He admits that if the ruling prohibiting first
gear men from living in fraternities was lifted,
it would cause serious economic trouble to land-

dence, America can genuinely point with pride
to this rare phenomenon of a voluntary with-
drawal from imperial power. No matter what the
motives of our furling of the flag, (and certainly
our flight from the far Pacific will not be purely
a matter of principle) no other nation can boast
as signal an evidence of sincere intent to avoid
the evils of imuerialism.
In the past, American rule abroad has proved
a patchwork of good and evil, dependent for its
results largely upon the abilities and intentions of
the individual administrators and governors, who
have in many cases been chosen blindly, or for
political purposes. It has been subject, therefore,
both to the benefits and the dangers of semi-

Help The Needy?
PIm One Of Them.
YOU CAN SOMETIMES evade an
argument by moving over to the
;other side. And you can evade the Good Will
Fund by saying, "Help the needy? Why should I?
I'm one of them."
It's a good gag, but it's rather trite and doesn't
What would you think if your father tried it on
you at the beginning of the month? Or if your
employer asked "Why should I pay you to do work
that I can handle, when I need the money my-
Many students will contend that it is not their
concern if four or five hundred students are try-
ing to get through the Universi~ty without enough
money to maintain health and mental security
They Will declare facetiously that those who
want an education badly enough to suffer for it
are getting what's coming to them.
Ostensibly, it's a strong argument. But put
yourself in the position of the student who need
food and clothing; perhaps your views will
change. Unfortunately, incomes are made and
broken with considerable ease under the present
system, you know.
Perhaps you really believe that you cannot af
ford.to contribute, even if-the fund is worthy. Al
right, ask yourself a few questions:
Do you go to the cinema often?
Do you go to dances often?
Do you spend money for soft drinks, confec-
tions and other non-essentials?
Do you have several extra suits or dresses?
Do you buy many accessories in dress that
serve only as compliments to your vanity?
Now let us ask a auestion: Would it detract
very much from your happiness to give up one or
two movies, or a dance, or a couple of neckties;
'to omit the daily coca-cola for a week or two?
Assuming that you are one of the minority, would
it rob you of your popularity, or hurt your posi-
tion, to give up one of those extra dresses or suits
to someone who has a real need for it?
There are nearly eight thousand students on
campus who have enough money for all neces-
' sities and some luxuries. There are probably be-
tween three hundred and five hundred who
- haven't enough even: for necessities. The Good
Will Fund committee believes that $10,000 will
fill the gap. An average gift of a little more than
a dollar from the eight thousand who can afford
it will fill the quota.
There is no question of the ability of the Mich-
igan student body to solve its own problem of
want. The question is whether we are too self-
centered and careless of the needs of our fellows
to solve it. Before the campus di'ive starts this
week, think it over,
But he sees that if it is not lifted, it will cause
serious economic trouble to his fraternity,.which
has been faced with this difficulty for the past
He feels that his fraternity should be allowed
to compete an an even basis with the rooming
house, without artificial protection to the latter
by a University ruling.
He feels that, if his fraternity house is a more
desirable place to live than the rooming house,
from the point of view of the undergraduate, the
undergraduate ought to be allowed to live there.
As for the future of the Ann Arbor landlady,
he is not concerned, as he realizes that freshman
dormitories, which seem inevitable, will mean
that a great many of them will be forced to
go - out of business.
Until the dormitories are built, he believes that
landladies, by improving the atmosphere and liv-
ing conditions of their houses, can compete on
even grounds with fraternities.

ARGUMENTS AGAINST WAR
To The Editor:
1. If I were to kill one person some of these
days, my reward (?) would probably be 25 years
in prison or death by hanging or in the electric
2. If an army sets forth with the purpose of
killing thousands, nay millions, of young men-
the enemy-then upon the conquerors bonuses,
pensions, laurels, etc., are lavished, and they are
. . .heroes! Dear reader, weigh and consider!
3. When soldiers set forth to engage in war, that
is, in killing their brothers, the holy churches'
bless the flags and pray to the Lord for victory.
But victory is impossible without the killing or
mutilating of the soldiers' brothers, nor without
devastation, destruction, and general. misery
among the civilian population--one naturally
asks just what the mission of the church is.

George Raft, as Edward Jackson, forger, thief,

for his role. When given his certified check, Raft
goes from bank to bank in a futile attempt to

hope the University will see the need of helping
he fraternities to keep up their standards of liv-
ng and helping the students that are working for

loin their fraternities in the second semester it
vould probably employ a few more students that
need work. -Mrs. Harry M. Bailey

that can be done about it.
Walter Lippmann, political commentator, says
France has a just grievance on the war debt sit-

thing doesn't seem to be quite on the Laval.
