we are tending. President Lowell has said that an underpaid teacher is a
discontented teacher, a teacher who lacks responsibility and loyalty to his
high office. Of this we have had abundant evidence in the case of those who
have left their professorships to teach socialism in, the cities-and have
there received far greater pay for subversive doctrine than they received
as faculty members. But the case is worse than that. When teachers are
underpaid and discontented, the profession fails to attract the more vigorous
and ambitious type of youth. The gradual decline in the mental and the
character standard of university faculties is not so obvious as the occa-
sional instance of radical discontent; but it is well understood by those
who are in a position to know, and in the long run it is far more dangerous.

THEY CALL IT SNOBBERY
No term is applied more indiscriminately than "the snob." Whoever
ippens to be late for an 8 o'clock, rushing pell-mell through doors and
.l1s, too hurried to see anything or anyone, whoever, is unfortunate
hough to fail to recognize somebody he has met, whoever declines an invi-
tion, why-we christen him "a snob."
It might be difficult to define a snob, since most of the time he does not
:ist, except in our own thoughts. A candid definition from most of the
implaining would be,-one who does not happen to fulfill our own petty
sires, dance to our own tunes, pamper our idle tastes. The snob does
irive, but he is most active on occasions when few of us notice him; per-
aps he even dominates "you and me."
The snob is active when college opens in the fall and hundreds of
eophytes pour in with glittering high school pins and bursting carpet
gs, radiant in expectation but very, very "lost." The snob gets his work
. so well that soon the glamor fades, and the new arrivals wander around
ke so many peris shut from the gates of Paradise. The genuine snob is
ireasoning; he never challenges thought or attention; he always takes a
eak, unsuspecting individual to practice his art upon. He is really a
'eature of small consequence.
. Why tlwn so much prattle about "the snob?" Is it not because of our
ratic interpretations of attitudes, our own jealousies? The exclusive peo-
e are those who have an objective above ours, and so we say they are
1 wrong. We clamor for democracy when all the time we are denying
imebody the right of going his own quiet way. Certain policies and
stes, likes and dislikes, are. as inherently natural, as the "come join the
tnd" spirit. There is no snobbery or vanity about it.
When we gain the broader view of college we will become, first of all,
lerant of everyone; we will learn the magic lesson of forgetting; we will
hmire the frankness of men who accept us for what we are worth, mag-
nimously leaving us out of where we do not belong. Last of all we, too,
ill see that it is sometimes honest wisdom to "draw the latch-string in,
id close the door."
The war has accustomed us to such large figures that very few realize,
e magnitude of the task which our leading universities have undertaken
their "drives" for a proper equipment of teaching and a proper payment
the teacher. Thus the graduates of Harvard, who are assembled in Cam-
idge for the "Summer School" which is instructing them as to the com-
g campaign, speak lightly of the $11,000,000 which they are to raise and
nfidently of the 36,000 Harvard graduates from whom they are to raise it.
it if the Summer schooling of these financiers includes arithmetic, they
ust have discovered that the average gift of all Harvard graduates will
ye to be $305.' A billion dollars for the war has come to seem a negligi-
e detail; but in the family exchequer a dollar looms larger than ever
Statistics as to the earnings of college graduates bring little comfort.
ie average is considerably less than three thousand dollars, and this in
ite of the fact that in each class there may be several men whose income
measured by hundreds of thousands. The drive thus contemplates a levy
more than 10 per cent on the average annual income. And the college
aduate belongs to the class that has suffered most severely from the
r. Hand laborers have exacted an increase of wages which has fully
pt pace with the increased cost of living, and in many cases has out-
'ipped it; so. that workingmen have become profuse buyers of talking
,chines and automobiles, silks, furs, and jewels. The salaried brain
rker has had comparatively little and in many cases no increase of pay,
that many professional men now receive less than skilled mechanics.
.e of the posters prepared for the drive bears the legend: "A motorman
is 60 cents an hour, a professor 18. Which is worth more, gentlemen,
nding the train or training the mind?" But young lawyers, doctors, and
gineers are in rmuch the same boat as the professor, as are ministers of all
es. Even the very rich graduates have had large slices cut from their
comes by war taxation-a further levy of 10 per cent is no small matter for
Yet in all probability the drive will succeed. Its success will be of
Ad augury for other colleges where similar work must be done. Many of
e men assembled at Cambridge predict an over-subscription. They should
ow, if anybody. They know, for one thing, that the class of salaried brain
rkers to which the college graduate belongs has a record of loyalty and
crifice that is second to none. They have furnished most of the officers
d a large proportion of the men for our army; and those of them who.
re obliged to stay at home have been no less useful in Liberty Loan
ves and in general war work. As a class they have received little
Lise, or none; and their manifest grievances have been stated rather
n insisted upon, and very modestly stated at that. But they, if any
ss, may be counted on to rise to the call of duty.
That it is a duty there can be no question. ''he world stands in need
light and leading as never before. The integrity of our free institutions
menaced-at not a few points it is, for the time being, violated. Indus-
ally and socially the future of the world looks darker than most of us
e to admit. Only one power can ultimately prevail, the power of knowl-

A dainty epistle in a feminine scroll
came in the mail the other day and

Here are the contents:
The Stagnant Summer Stude
I'm in the mood right now that I
Had when I used to fight,
And argue with my roomie,
Though she usually was right.
It makes me homesick for A2(*)
To feel this way again,
My convolutions will adhere,
And trick my silly pen.
My blasphemy when I cannot
Behold my favorite prof. ()
Is such as when I bolted
And was summoned when a soph.
My course is run. I cannot wait
To greet the teachers dear,
I hear their voices far above
The taxi battle cheer.
*We hazard that this is swift stuff
for Ann Arbor.
**We didn't know anyone had a
And then more:
A summer is a lonesome place
Unless one's green and blends
With all of the environment.
One loves the guy who sends
The Wolverine. Now may he get
The blessing that amends!
If any of the birds that are mailing
this sheet to femmes and who think
their b. or b. wrote this just drop
down to the office and we'll tell you
the postmark on the envelope and
the' rest will be easy.
Many thanks, N 16, come again.

OMAhA CITY COMMISSION ACTS
TO REDUCE PRICES OF FOODS
Omaha, Neb., Aug. 4.-The city com-
mission authorized today the expendi-
ture of $10,000 in buying food supplies
to be sold to the public at cost. When
two commissioners suggested an inves-
tigation to learn if prices are too
high, the mayor shouted:
"Not on your life. I demand action
now. Help the people first, then in-
vestigate. We have got to do every-
thing we can to give the people the
necessities of life or be confronted by
an open insurrection."
