Summer Tag Day will be held
on the campus today. This will
afford Summer students the op-
portunity to contribute to a
worthy cause. A 100 per cent
membership in the Camp club will
enable the directors of the camp
to accept the full list of applica-
tions from the underprivileged
boys of Detroit, Flint, Ann Arbor
Fifteen campers, chosen on the basi
of high qualities of leadership, will
be stationed at various points on the
campus today to appeal to the stu-
dent body and faculty to lend support
to the University Fresh Air camp at
Patterson lake. These boys are op.
tomistic as they face the day's cam-
paign, and feel certain that the Sum-
mer students will readily contribute
to their worthy cause.
Their task today is that of raising
$500, which is the Summer school
quota of the camp. A fixed price 01
50 cents and $1 has again been set as
the price of a tag which signifies mem.

ever, is the approximate cost of keep.

The work has progressed from year

WHAT COST CONQUEST?
It is now more than a month since
the ill-fate crew of the Nobile dirig-
ible Italia descended on the icy wastes
of the Arctic, and enlisted the sym-
pathy and aid of a large part of the
civilized world. At the end of this
month and more, through the devasta-
tion wrought by the Arctic blizzards
in the meantime, some half dozen sur-
vivors of the crew have been rescued,
and more than a dozen men have been
lost in fruitless search for them.
Thousands of dollars in money have
been spent in attempting to reach the
marooned party, two airplanes lie
wrecked on Arctic shores, and still
there are several parties lost in the
vast wastes, without food or equip-
All of this tremendous expenditure
of men and money, of talent and
genius, has been brought about for no
material or scientific gain. The
Italia when it was lost was on no er-
rand of importance-not even on an
errand of geographical significance-
and had the commanders of that
dirigible awaited further motivation
than the spotlight of world affairs,
their ship would never have taken the
air, and the lives of the brave men
who perished in attempting to reach
them would have been saved.
It is this kind of thing, more than
anything else, which will finally turn
the public favor away from expedi-
tions into the frozen Arctic wastes,
The public will find it difficult to draw
the line, for instance, between a fool-
hardy attempt such as that under-
taken by Nobile and a flight under-
taken in the truest interests of science
and exploration-such as the present
contemplated one of Byrd to the South
Pole. Man, if he is ever to advance
consistently, must constantly keep
alive his thirst for knowledge of
realms unknown, and knowledge of
the Antarctic, as will be gained by
Byrd and his party, is one manifesta-
tion of this progress. Such an at-
tempt is worthy, perhaps, the peril of
human life which it incurs, and the
dangers which attend it; and it is
moved by none of the selfish effort at
self-exaltation which propelled the
tragic Italia expedition.
If we are to have conquest of space,
of frozen wastes, of nature, let it come
with as little sacrifice of life as pos-
sible. May humanity ever condemn
foolhardy and reckless endeavors to
these ends, and may it ever lend its
unstinted support to sound, sincere
efforts to aid to man's increasing store

might be a good idea to have this on

as some treaties have been considered.

straw votes which are so popular
right now, is to see which way the
