RIES FOR MEN AT MICHIGAN

University of Michigan should build
for men as soon as possible. There has
:ontroversy of late years over this very
estion, and every time the matter has

ied so forcibly against it that the ques-

ents enrolling ir the University every
ear that some decision must be made in
iancial and intellectual interests are the most
factors in the life of the male student, and
would be served best by the University if
itories for men were erected. The establish-
of women's dormitories here has proved that

the last few years, almost every progressive

that is best. Why then should not Michigan

BAITING THE SOVIET TRAP
No one should work more than two hours a day.
Every workman should own an automobile. Capi-
tal should supply the chauffeurs Each workman
should have a summer vacation of at least two
months at some seaside resort.
Those are highlights in ;he propaganda expound-
ed by one John Alexander, or Alexander Jaunuiks-
na, a leader in the world soviet movement, now in
custody for draft evasion and other things. He re-
cites the creed glibly as an appeal to American
workers to join his cause. They are interesting
chiefly in contrast to the practical d'evelopment of
the soviet regime. He makes promises. Extracts
from Russian soviet records, therefore, are enter-
taining as showing how seriously Alexander may 'e
taken by those to whom he appeals.
Trotsky's report at the ninth congress of the
Russian Communist party, as published in the Mos-
cow Izvestia, March 21, 1920, says: "Under a uni-
fied system of economy the masses of workien
should be moved about, ordered and sent from
place to place in exactly the same manner as sol-
diers. Without this we are unable to speak seri-
ously of any organization of, industry on a new
basis in the conditions of starvation and disorgan-
ization existing today.
The Krasvaya Gazeta.(Red Gazette) of April 18,
1920, reveals the fact that failure to accept this
compulsory labor ,is punished by imprisonment.
Desertion from the labor army is punished as de-
sertion in war. In support of this soviet policy,
Karl Radek, former bolshevist envoy to Germany,
in the Moscow Pravada of April 4, 1920, said:
"It (the Communist party) will put the working
masses on their feet to perform this heroic work,
just as it led them to heroism in war."
The central executive committee of the Com-
munist-party in March made the following declara-
tion of principle: .
"The soviet regime is confronted by the task of
raising the intensity of labor on the basis of social
economy and in the interests of the toiling masses.
There is nothing in these statements about limit-
ing labor to two hours a day and providing laborers
with automobiles. They reveal only that practical
communish works out, to increase the intensity of
labor, to eliminate fredom of choice of labor, to
eliminate the right to strike, to punish strikers by
. Alexander's job is to get the workingmen into th'
soviet fold. The soviet's job is to use hin after
he gets in. If, in view of the facts, ay working-
ainan succumbs to the Russian Commnistis appeal
he certainly will deserve little better than what he
.will get. That will be plenty.-The Chicago Tri-
All these apostles of discontent who tell us that
America condemns bolshevism because it does not
know the truth about it are themselves the victims
of delusion if they really believe what they say on
The testimony of careful observers, such as Dr.
S. G. Youngert of the United states commission to
Europe, who spoke on this subject yesterday in Ke-
wanee, is reliable and fully informing. It is based
upon a careful study at first hand of what the bol-
shevists are doing and trying to do. Dr. Youngert
properly calls bolshevism the world's new foe. Men
and women, enjoying the liberties and happiness of
America, shudder at the evils that the Russian plan
embodies.. They want none of it here nor elsewhere
on the earth, if they can prevent it, for it is a con-
tamination to all the world's peace.
Anybody advocating such monstrosities of gov-
ernment and social life as those extrolled in- the
Russian theory is out of tune with the American
thought and conscience.-K ewanee Star-Courier.
Abaft the News
On the Exorbita-nt Expense of Existing
Thei-e is one thing we're sure of nowadays, any-
way, besides death. That is that the soaring cost
of living is nose-diving higher and higher every
A gentleman in the most elite circles of the foot-
wear trade made the remark the other day that
the. shoe manufacturers were soon going back to
making shoes out of leather because the price of
paper was so high.
Even in sports, or for sports, it is pretty easy to
see. They've shoved up the price of grandstand seats
at the Windsor track so that it costs you half a
fish more to lose your heard earned buttons than it
used to. Steps should be taken.
Even people lose more this year according to me.
- You bet American money and even if you win
you surround a lot of strange Dominion currency
which boils itself down to a few yen when
translated into green-backs. All the Jesse -James
are at tke track and their horses are running. Run-
ning away with your gold.
I know a bricklayer well that told me just the oth-
er day that he simply couldn't afford cord tires on
both cars. Things are at a pretty pass as the crap
