id participation in intercollegiate contests

tderclassmen. These young men learn the
a'nce of being the under dog for the time
and they gain a certain respect for tradition
recognition of other people's ability. After
g through this period of probation and ap-
eship, they realize that there is an intangible

understood and appreciated only through

now, in short, what it is all about, not only
ards academic learning but also as regards
-sity life, which many people consider the
al thing of a college education.
Junior colleges would deny this to future
sity men. Spending their first two years in
:ollege where there is little if any spirit, Junior
students would enter the University for their
o years of work and miss all that they should
ained. These Junior college graduates would

college students might come into the spirit

41ENTION THE WOLVERINE
re any business or commercial house, enters
ontract for a given thing, it generally makes
it the money expended will bring in a pro-
ite amount of profits.
At the beginning of the summer THE WoLvERINE
found that expenses had increased to such an extent
that the advertising rates were necessarily raised to
meet in a certain measure the higher operating costs.
Some of our advertisers failed to see the justice
of the raise, others had to cut down on the amount
of advertising, and some of the most loyal ones con-
tinued and even increased their space. Many of
them, perhaps, fail to see that the money expended
for this brings them in actual profits, but their belief
in student life and its ultimate growth has caused
them to support the publication by their advertising.
Through the support of these advertisers, the sub-
scribers to THE WOLVERINE are enabled to obtain
three times a week reports of past and future events
that happen on the campus. The subscription price
to the paper does not begin to pay the cost of pro-
duction; the advertising makes up the difference.
For this reason, the fact that the subscriber reaps
the benefits from THE WOLvERINE'S advertisers and
that our continuance is made possible through adver-
tising, we ask our subscribers to patronize. the firms
that advertise in this paper and in so doing to men-
tion that they read the firm's ad in THE WOLVERINE.
In this way the business houses may soon learn that
their advertising does bring in substantial returns.
The strike which has closed 90 per cent of the
coal mines in Illinois and threatens to close the re-
mainder in the face of the most serious coal situa-
tion which the nation has faced in years has been
branded by Frank Farrington, head of the miners
in this state, as a "runaway strike." When it started
among a few day workers in downstate mines Far-
rington was reported to have said that he was mak-
ing every effort to bring about peace, but was unable
to control the men.
Now the strike has gained such proportions that
it threatens to extend to Indiana, Ohio, and western
Pennsylvania. If the day men's demands are grant-
ed here it is believed that similar demands and simi-
lar strikes will follow in every unionized bituminous
coal field in the country.
A somewhat similar situation developed in the
runaway strike of switchmen last spring. The lead-
ers of established and recognized unions asserted
they could not cotrol the men. The result is well
known. We are still paying the bill in congestion
and freight delays.
If labor leaders are se powerless to control the
men, by what authority do they represent them?
If union agreements can be so easily abrogated, of
what advantage is ii for employers to make such
"Runaway strikes" are coming to be the greatest
menace to the cause of conservative, substantial or-
ganized labor that it has ever known. They allow
the radical, irresponsible, uncontrolled minority to
cast a blight upon the entire union labor cause.
The ordinary citizen who makes up the great un-
organized mass of the population is not inclined to
differentiate between a "runaway strike" and a sane-
ly authorized strike when his coal bin is emptied,
his supply of food cut off, -or his transportation
blocked. The results are what count with him.
Generally he will blame these results upon unions,
without regard to details.
It is a task for intelligent, self-respecting union1
men to see that they and their cause is not so stig-
matized. They can do so by seeing to it that "run-
away strikes" are deprived of their support, either
moral or material, and that leaders who are neither
representative nor responsible are likewise deprived
of support.-The Chicago Tribune.
