THE WRONG ATTITUDE
A serious speech often gains effect
through a light jest told at the op-
portune moment. But when a state-
ment is of such a nature that it need-
lessly reflects dishonor or even dis-
respect on any individual or group of
individuals, then the story becomes a
very dangerous instrument for achiev-
ing the end in view, and may serve
to jeopardize a very noble purpose.
Those present at the mass meeting
Friday night in Hill auditorium will
recall the story told by Mr. Fenton
with regard to a banquet of a Jewish
charitable organization. The dearth
of applause was indicative of the stu-
dent attitude towards this story. It
showed that Michigan men and women
were in this respect instinctively more
sound than the speaker.
The story to us involved an un-
founded inference. Unfounded, when
weighed in the light of the facts, and
malicious, because the point would
have carried as well without any rac-
ial characterization. If Mr. Fenton is
not acquainted with the true situa-
tion, we feel that it is time that he
looked to the facts. Mr. Fenton is a
man who occupies a . high national
position. He is on the board of the
federal reserve bank of Chicago. More-
over, he is engaged in a highly im-
portant work in connection with the
Liberty loan campaign. For these
reasons it is particularly important
that he knows whereof he insinuates.
These are times when the hetero-
geneous peoples of America must be
welded into one. At the mass meet-
ing we learned of the necessity for a
strong University spirit, which was
described to us as the close union of
all the students for the one cause. A
national spirit may be said to be the
same thing on a much larger scale.
The varied peoples of this country are
responding magnificently to the de-
mands being made upon them, and
especially when working for so im-
portant and worthy a cause as the
Liberty loan, men should most scrupu-
ously avoid the creation of needless
antagonisms, and the introduction of
disintegrating influences into our com-
mon American life.
Now that the Aggies have been dis-
posed of let's get down to studying
and Liberty loaning for a few days.
Some are real men. Others refuse
to sacrifice to buy bonds. .
Saturday night closes the second
campaign. Don't rush in with your
application for a bond at the last min-
ute if you can buy today just as well.

WOMEN TO CONSECRATE IDLE

Local House Organizations Commence
War Work at Angell Home
Women's house organizations are
pledging a certain number of hours
each week to the work at the surgical
dressings headquarters at the Angell
home. Delta Gamma will give 70
hours a week, and Sorosis 60 hours.
Mrs. Dean Loree, who is in charge
of the work, urges that more of the
houses follow their example. The
rooms are open every day, except Sun-
day, from 9 until 5 o'clock. Houses
desiring to pledge a definite number
of hours each week are requested to

The county Red Cross recommend
that each house agree to knit a definite

Cross, better method of accomplishing

"Y" Wants Report on Poor Work
N. D. Ireland, employment secre-
tary of the Y. M. C. A., has requested
that employers of students report
cases of over-charging and poor help.
It is the aim of the employment bu-
reau to send out only dependable and,
efficient help, and to do this it is nec-
essary to secure the co-operation of
the employers. Although the bureau
does not guarantee the help sent out
to be satisfactory in every way, they
are enabled by reports from the em-
ployers to eliminate the names of un-
satisfactory help from their lists.
Recreation makes for Efficiency.

The Daily wishes to make clear the
above statement, which appears in
the paper each morning above the
editorial column. Criticisms have
come in to the office asking if this pa-
per took such and such a stand on a
certain topic, and if not, why such
material was allowed in print.
The symbol of a soldier is France
is a uniform and an army rifle. The
symbol of a soldier at home is a Lib-

Students Slow in Physical Exams
Dr. George A. May, physical di-
rector of Waterman gymnasium, re-
quests all freshmen who have not yet
received their physical examinations
to appear at their scheduled time. The
examinations are progressing more
slowly than those of last year.
We believe that the really well
clothed man is the man who is
tastily and conservatively clothed.
It is not necessary to let your
clothes shout for you, it is much
better to let them merely whisper.
