.E EIGHT THE MICHIGAN DAILY wi
EDNESDAY, NOV. 11, 194
the Minutemen of the Campus!
This is a war of the whole people. Every man, woman, child, and organization
has a part in it. The University of Michigan as an institution is engaged in training
personnel for war service and devoting its research facilities and staff to the study
of problems immediately concerned with the war effort. The winning of the war is
the first concern of all of us.
Here on the campus the response to the undertakings of the War Manpower
Mobilization Corps on the part of the student body clearly shows that they are fully
aware of their responsibilities and ready to fulfill them. They have collected tons
of scrap, sold war bonds and stamps by the thousands, furnished important service
to hospitals, and helped to salvage the farmers' crops. When the call comes they
will as cheerfully do their duty in any other form of the national service.
So the University takes pride in this enterprise, in its management and in the
spirit with which the response has been made. Michigan students have been in
every war of the United States since the Mexican War of 1848, and they are heart
and soul in this one.
