In less than two weeks Michigan

They are leaving Ann Arbor to go

As university men and women they
are sure to be called upon for expres-
sions and opinions on the present
world crisis. They will be looked
upon as representative of America's
thinkers. What will be their answer?
It has been said by Germans-in-
deed, by some of our own people-
that the American schools, and more
especially the universities, are un-
able to cope with serious problems of
the magnitude of the present one. It
has been said with scorn by many
Germans that our American schools
are centers of superficial learning, and
that the men and women they send
forth are not trained to truly think
It ow lies within our power to
show these malignant critics the stuff
that we, students of a great American
university, are made of. It is for
us to show them that we have not been
idle nor do we intend to be, so long
as civilization itself is threatened.It
is for us to show them that whether
we enlist for farm work, war work,
military service, or further educa-
tion, we have learned to think and to
ac~t with regard to this tremendous
problem. We are equal to it and we
are about to attack it with the spirit
that can only spell victory.

Guide to THE Gargoyle Joke
We just went over and humbled our-
selves to the ed. to the extent of asking
for space to quote the leading Gargle'
editorial. He reluctantly refused, al-
though granting that it would be a
long day before this gem of self-satire
could be surpassed in the student
publications of the University of Mich-
igan. But we can't resist merely re-
peating "they told usdthe state was
going dry but we couldn't drop down
town long enough to verify the re-
port." Not only were the Garglers ful-
ly cognizant of the final resting-place
of the last legitimately sold drop of
the fiery fluid, but beyond a doubt
their information as to the exact hum-
idity of the state at the present time is
most remarkably comprehensive. Oh,
man-relent and let us enlighten the
gen. pub. on some of their other sobs

POST UP THE AD
This morning The Daily contains a
full page advertisement concerning
the necessity of Michigan men return-
ing next fall and bringing- back new
students. The best method in which
this fact can be impressed upon the
minds of the students is for boarding
houses, fraternities, and -sororities to
