tion and are already in training. It
is difficult to impress these eager
young men with the idea that contin-
uance of their college work will give
them better opportunities to serve
when they are of required age and
are called upon. The military author-
ities recognize this as a fact ,and the
government has now taken such
measures that the sacrifice of college
education is not necessary, and it is
hoped that the depopulation of col-
lege halls may be stopped. The new
plan, which will be put in effect by
the war department at the opening of
the college year, is to provide mili-
tary training under army officers in.
every institution of college grade en-
rolling 100 or niore able-bodied stu-
dents over 18, thus forming college
battalions in which college work and
military training will proceed simul-
taneously. This will ensure contin-
ued educational progress while mak-
ing the students part of the federal
military establishment, and prepar-
ing them for greater efficiency when
needed. It is proposed, also, to co-
ordinate the reserve officers' training
corps system with this broader plan.
It is hardly to be questioned that
our own state university will have a
large student battalion, although it
already has a military department
and has contracted to train approxi-
mately 700 enlisted men to be sent to
the institution by the war depart-
ment. This is the resultant of the
favorable report of Major M. B. Gar-
ber after inspection of the cadets of
the reserve officers' training corps
last April. Michigan is already help-
ing train men for the national serv-
ice; under this larger plan its effi-
ciency can be increased. - Detroit

RAISE THEIR SALARIES
It is indeed with misgivings that the
student body witnesses the departure
of more of Michigan's faculty to other
universities, or into business. Never
was there a greater nee for educated
men and women than now. Never has
the college teacher played a greater
part in the welfare of the community
than he does today. Continuance of
the war will raise his worth to the
country even higher, and make even
greater his contribution to the world
through the knowledge which he is
able to impart to the coming genera-
tion. The problems of the present
struggle are the greatest the human
race has ever been called upon to face.
Those of the reconstruction period
will be none the less vital. With the
educated man, trained by the best
minds of the country, will rest the
power of settling the disputes and
problems which must arise.
The failure to raise the salaries
of the University faculty so that these
positions can attract the best teach-
ers in the country is not the fault of'
the University. Its appropriation from
the state legislature- will not permit
a wage increase. The Regents would
do everything in their power, but with-
out finances from the sate they are
helpless. The state legislature must
see the absolute necessity in the situ-
ation. War prices have affected
many things; in fact, they have
had, an' economic' effect upon
nearly everything except the sal-
aries of college professors. The axiom
that "once a teacher, always a teach-
er," failsmin the light of war salaries
these trained minds are able to com-
mand in other enterprses, and at oth-
er institutions. Some of Michigan's
best men have gone from the Univer-
sity in the past three years. This
spring is witnessing an exodus greater
than before. I
To insure the retention after the end
of the next collegiate year of those
men who have not as yet gone, it will
undoubtedly be necessary to offer them
greater financial inducements. The
deterioration of Michigan is now more
than at matter of pride with the state,
the alumni, faculty and students. It
would become a national calamity to
have one of the country's greatest and
largest institutions lower its stand-
ards. The legislature should look

COLLEGE WORK AND MILITARY
The decimation of college classes
incident to the war, the enormous
draft upon the youth of the nations
and its wholesale sacrifice in battles,
has been one of the many lamentable
features of the great conflict. The
seemingly instinctive, certainly spon-
taneous desire of patriotic youth to
further their country's purposes, eith-
er in the army or in the fields of con-
tributory labor, is manifest through
the large number of undergraduates
who have severed their college con-
nection with the approaching vaca-
