MONEY MUST COME IF
HUN "KULTUR" IS DOWNED
NECESSARY TO FREE OURSELVES
FROM OUR NATIONAL
(By George F. Hurley, '18L.)
We as a nation are engaged in a
death struggle with a foe that neither
knows nor practices the principles of
humanity. Hardened by privation,
brazen in its self-confessed mendac-
ity, and infurated by a powerful and
stubborn opposition to its lustful
craze for power; they do not expect
nor intend to give any quarter.
We face such a foe, whose every
human element, and whose entire ec-
onomic resource is centered in this
conflict, with a citizenry steeped in a
philosophy of individualism that bor-
ders on selfishness, a philosophy that
preaches that the individual is above
all, and that democracy exists to serve
him. . Such a philosophy breaks down
when pitted against a highly concen-
trated autocracy. Great Britain does
not talk in terms of the individual°
today as she did four years ago. Let
us profit by her experience.
National Life Soft.
Our life as a nation has been so
soft, and prosperous, and peaceful.
We have taken everything in so ef-
fortless a manner that we are forget-
ful that what we enjoy has to be paid
for with a price, and that to pay that
price is our bounden duty. We have
incurred an obligation which, if we
are at all honorable, we will endea-
vor to discharge.
We who enjoy the privilege of an
education at the hands of the state
are heavily obligated to it, and we are
bound to redeem this obligation, by
service to the State when oportunity
presents. To feel the responsibility of
paying this great debt is the true es-
sence of citizenship.
Too many of us are veritable spong-
es, sucking in all we can get, and hold-
ing it,-until the strong hand of the
law, under pressure of necessity,'
squeezes out of some of our surplus,
and then we yell with pain. If we be-
lieve that the purpose of education
is to make us first class sponges-
then we deserve to be squeezed, and
squeezed hard. To believe such is to
proclaim that we are devoid of all
loyalty to our fellow men and the
country thatis their composite self,-
that we are citizens only to exploit
our country .

AT THE MAJESTIC.
The coming of Boyle Woolfolk's'
Musical Comedy will give the local
patrons of the game another oppor-
tunity to improve acquaintance with
the inimitable Guy Voyer and his as-
sistants in mirth and song. Their new
production, The Bridal Twirl, will be
their initial offering. It is a tuneful
melange of scenic splendor, offers a
bevy of beautiful girls garbed accord-
ing to the latest dictates of Dame
Fashion, and is altogether one of the
most spirited vehicles in which this
company has appeared.
There is f profusion of jingling mel-
ody, of the whistling kind, and smiles
ranging from the tiny crinkling of the
lips to the full-blown guffaw of up-
roarious laughter. There is never a
let-up when things have started-
from the curtaIn's rise there is some-
thing doing in some interesting or

pretty girls in this company are a rev-

WOMAN'S LEAGUE POSTPONED
PARTY WILL BE HELD TODAY
The postponed membership party of
the Woman's league will be held from
3:30 to 5:30 o'clock this afternoon in

society, has provided an original play.
Besides this entertainment, dancing
will add to the afternoon's enjoyment.
"Y" TO RAISE $35,000,000
FOR WORK AMONG SOLDIERS
The Y. M. C. A. will open a national
campaign Nov. 11 to raise $35,000,000
for association work among the sol-
diers. $11,500,000.00 of this fund will
be spent at training camps in this
country, a large part of the balance
will be used among the American sol-
diers in France.
Russian and Italian officials have
asked that the asociation send repre-
sentatives to their countries to help
improve the morale of their armies.
Fighting the foe that we are, and
as unprepared as we are to do it, the
greatest opportunity that we ever will
have to settle our debts with democ-
racy presents itself. If we cannot
fight, then we can give of that which
under a beneficient political spstem
we have been able to enjoy. Either
method of settling with our country
entails sacrifice, and both go to our
credit toward striking a balance in our
account with our republic. We cannot
be selfish and be patriotic at the same
time. To be the former, is to blind
ourselves to our duty, and that is a
form of treason which, while not pun-
ishable with death, merits, and will
surely receive, the scornful treatment
that it deserves.
All of us, rich and poor, are in-
debted to this democracy of ours. We
owe more than we can pay, and if we
have any respect for our manhood, and
womanhood, we will at least urge up-
on our generous and patient creditor,
our country, a substantial percentage
of our obligation in the shape of sub-
scriptions to the Liberty Loan, to
serve her, andthrough her, our fel-
lows, in our common necessities. We
cannot be true citizens and be blind
to our duty,-only ingrates turn deaf
ears to the call of that great democ-
racy that represents us all, is us all.
With the Hun thundering at the gates
of civilization, if we prize what we
have, let us cast aside our petty indi-
vidual comforts and rise as one to re-
pel him ere he spread ruin and ter-
ror among us.
