TODAY IS THE DAY }
Today the boys from the Fresh Air
Camp at Paterson Lake will solicit
funds from students on the Campus
far the support of this enterprise
The Daily unqualifiedly approves of
the objects and ideals of this camp,
an" believes that the $500 quota de-
sired should by all means be raised-
The student body itself is only asked
to furnish about one fourth of the
funds necessary for operation.
It is very seldom that a tag day is
worth while, and at times, when they
come in rapid succession in a man-
ner with which all school teachers
are familiar, they become a positive
menace. It has never been the prac-
tice of the University authorities to
allow this practice to exist unlicensed
on this campus, and as a result Mich-
igan has been most happily free from
the pestilent kind of tag days.
There will not be more than one
or two allowed here this summer
There will not be any other tag day
on the University campus for the sup-
port of an activity which is so es-
sentially a part of the University, as
the anntal Fresh Air Camp under
the auspices of the Student Chris-
tian Association. It is essentially
a University project, conceived by
University men and operated by
students from the school who are
sacrificing their time at pactically
no monetary return for the cause
which the camp represents.
This year more than 350 under-
privileged boys from large cities will
be given free of charge the twelve
days outing at the camp. Two see-
tions have already been held, and
the third commences this week.
These boys are given what is for
many of them the first opportunity to
live out of doors, away from the
grimy poorer sections of our indus-
trial communities. They are chosen
by responsible civic agencies in each
of the towns represented, and would

not otherwise receive any vacation
at all.
They are in the formative periods
of their lives, between the ages of
ten and sixteen. To many of them
the contacts at the camp are their
first opportunities to known univers-
ity students, aid their first chance to
get acquainted with the facts about a
great university. To some of them it
will be a turning point that will alter
the course of a whole lifetime, and to
those who never receive any inspira-
tional effect at all the chance :to live
n the open is invaluable as a health-
ful measure.
The responsibility . of the under-
privileged children of the state is, to,
be sure, not a responsibility of thel
Michigan student body. It is a re-
sponsibility of the industrial system
which causes these conditions andi
which is the basis of the poverty that
affords a lack of opportunity. It is a
responsibility of all society through
its government, but it is a responsibil-
ity which society as a whole is reluct-
ant to accept, just as it is reluctant,
to accept the actions of its individ-f
uals as a social responsibility att
times. Until the government or some1
regularly constituted agency takes,
up this work, however, it must be
done, and there is no more fittingt

place for it to rest than upon the en-
ligtened classes as represented in the
state university. To be sure, certain
generous individuals contribute ann-
ually toward the camp more than
twice what the whole student body
gives, but it is a chance, nevertheless,[
for the students of Michigan to as-i
sume a responsibility which can not
but be of lasting benefit to society
as a whole.
The opportunity to serve the youth
of the state, and society in general,
is unparalleled. The influence that
350 boys can have on the future of
our is both awful and inspiring. The
boys at the camp cost less than one
dollar for maintenance and supervis-
ion. It is a small investment indeed
for us to -make in our boyhood, andJ
it is in all probability the only time
this summery that there will be a tag
day on the University campus-it is
at least the last time that The Daily
will support one (barring earth-
quakes).

MusicN ADrma
JAZZ-IT IS A DREAD DISEASE
Jazz, which s so often called by
those untutored minds, "music" has
received another set-back. This time
it comes from Dr. Gustav Strese-
-mann, Germany's foreign minister,
speaking at the opening of the Frank-
fort Music Exposition. "We must
protect our nerves against this drum-
fire and seek again that solemn hour
of communion from which has come
all the greatness ever created," said
Dr. Stresemann.
J mann nor any other diciple of what
Musical Digest reassured the worried
foreign minister that jazz was being
relegated to its proper inconsequen-
tial position in the July number of
that magazine. "Neither Dr. Strese-
mann nor any other deciple of what
is truly representative of the art need
