THE GAME WITH NORTHWESTERN
Michigan will make her official re-
turn debut into the Western Confer-
eOnce November 24, when the Wolver-
ine gridiron men will meet Northwest-
ern University in Chicago. Thus the
"Big Nine" will become the "Big Ten"
and Michigan will again have her op-
portunity to prove herself "champion
of the west." Incidentally this game
with Northwestern will materially
help to improve what. now seems to
be a rather unsteady schedule for next
fall, as at the present moment it can-
not be definitely determined whether
the schedule as arranged by the ath-
letic authorities can be played in full
because of the suspension of athletics
by many schools.
In returning to the Conference
Michigan took a step determined upon
only after long agitation and discus-
sion. The game with Northwestern
will officially renew long-severed ath-
letic relations. In returning to the
western fold Michigan should enter
with the brotherly spirit in which she
has been received, and our teams fight-
ing in the west should help to
strengthen the standing of western
athletics. The game with Northwest-
ern will be the first indication of the
more compact western spirit which
Michigan will foster in "Big Ten" ath-
letics, and should be watched with in-
terest for this reason.
A WORD OF APPRECIATION
Now that the last complimentary
concert for summer school students
and townspeople has been given by
the School of Music faculty, it is no
more tgan right that a word of thanks
be uttered. In giving wilfully of their
time and talent, the members of the
music faculty have offered us ap. ex-
ceptional opportunity to derive cul-
tural benefit and gain a species of re-
laxation not ordinarily open to most
of us.
Undoubtedly the person who missed
the concerts has lost something from
his summer course that he would have

gained had he attended the recitals.
At least none of those who attended
the entertainments have left with re-
gret. It is safe to assert that the cam-
pus appreciates the efforts of the ar-
tists who so willingly entertained and
at the same time instructed us.

WISOSSESCUSES OF
lIlGi COST OF LIING
Prof. -G. W. Dorie Lectures on In.
creasing Cost in Living
Expenses
"Prices have been tending upwards
for the last 400 years or more," said
Prof. G. W. Dowrie of the Department
of Political Economy, in a lecture 0n
the "High Cost of Living" which he de-
livered to a large audience in the Na-
tural Science building auditorium yes-
terday afternoon.
"When prices rise," he added, "there
is always difficulty in retaining the
customary standards of living The
incomes of a large portion of the pop-
ulation fails to rise in proportion to
their living expenses if they rise at
all. Wages and salaries fail to keep
pace, and all creditors and people de-
riving their incomes from fixed invest-
ments suffer most. Some few derive
benefit but the majority suffer. Was
has at least ironed out a good many
of our wastes and extravanganees and
driven us to geater efficiency.
Three Causes for Increase
"There are three causes of the grad-
ual increases in living expenses; the
reversion of private income to the
state, the lowering of the value of
money ,and the fact that the supply
has not kept pace with the demand.
"Three-fourths of the national in-
come is spent on war, past, present
and future. This was true even be-
fore the present war. This is one
reason why the government must take
so large a share of the individual's
dollar. Another reason is the patern-
alistic attitude which it has adopted
toward its people. This requires
much outlay now but later it will give
good results and even returns in dol-
lars and cents.
"The dollar is our measuring stick
of value. If you shorten a yard stick
a given piece of material will have
more yards in it. When a dollar de-
preciates a like condition results.
Much gold has been found recently
which also helps to reduce the value of
money as do also the modern bank-
ing methods, conserving by depositing
and checking accounts.
Living Above Our Means
"Our changes in tastes and desire for
a higher standard of living than our
income warrants is the third reason
for the increase in expenses. Someone
has named it the problem of the cost
of high living rather than the high
cost of living. High priced labor sav-
ing appliances which many house-
wifes feel that they cannot now do
without, the expensive methodsyo1
marketing which we employ, buying
but a little at a time and ordering
that by telephone, all contribute to
the general expense. Our pure food
laws prove our desire to have all
things clean and sanitary but here
again the consumer is adopting the
more expensive article as he receives
shorter weight and has to pay for
the wrapping, inspecting and advertis-
ing, If we even saved the bread which
we now throw out we could spare
over 100,000,000 bushels of wheat to
the allies.
"The remedies which are suggested
are first, the better management of
public affairs, putting business men in
charge instead of politicians and, sec-
ond, the education of the public in
the lines of proper marketing, prepar-
ation and conservation of food. Much
can he done through the agency of the
public school."

LIBRARY PLANS TO' SEND BIG
NUITBER OF BOOKS TO SOLDIERS
The University Library hopes to be
able to send between 2,000 and 3,000
books to the soldiers scattered in the
different cantonments of the country.
Up to date about 800 books have been
received and almost all of them have
been suitable for the purpose and in
excellent condition.
It is hoped that he students will not
forget this cause when packing their
books preparatory to their return to
their homes, since many of them will
be of value to the soldiers.

RECRUITING OFFICIAL GIVES
HISTORY OF NATIONAL ANTHEM
Washington, August 15.-Does any-
one know who composed the music of
"The Star Spangled Banner?" The
hymn, "Anacreon in Heaven," com-
posed by John Smith, an Englishman,
about 1770, is the original music of
our national anthem, according to a
recruiting official of the United States
marine corps.
Anacreon was an ancient Greek
poet. The young Maryland lawyer,
Francis Scott Key, set the words of
his masterpiece to the tune of Smith's
hymnal inspiration.
