the staff is a hard worker. Give him
your assistance. That is one great
way in which The Daily can become
a greater paper.
Typographical errors are numerous,
and at times seem entirely unneces-
sary. When the error is uncalled for
or when repeated mistakes are made
by one certain person showing he has
but little interest in the work he is
doing, the proper measures are taken
with him.
An event of no small importance to
college men throughout the country is
the opening in Paris of a College Un-
ion for those engaged in war service.
Graduates and undergraduates of col-
leges have long realized the need of
centrally located clubs to which they
may go and meet their friends when on
leave or in the vicinity. Such organ-
izations, confined heretofore, to mem-
bers of one college only, have been a
source of much pleasure and conven-
ience to members and have been a na-
tural means of keeping alive the spirit
and acquaintance developed while in
Of much greater significance is the
formation of a club located abroad in
the general center of activity at Paris,
to which members of many American
colleges may go for society and recre-
ation. Far from the scenes of their
college life, it will give to its mem-
bers a feeling of the, nearness and
presence of old associations, wnd an
opportunity for making or renewing
the. acquaintanceships which have
meant somuch in the past.
The opening of the College Union in
the Place de Theatre Francais will
be hailed with joy by University men
in France, and recognized by those
at home as one more example of the
common bond which unites college
men in every place and in all occu-
pations throughout the world.-Har-

many mistakes, some of which.
e or less foolish in the eyes

The Daily is not too proud to apolo-
gizo and rectify errors which it makes.
At the beginning of the year when the
men and the organization are the
least skillful, the greatest strain is
brppght to bear upon the paper. This
fall: with heavy losses from men of
experience who have joined the ser-
vice, The Daily started with but a
handful of even Daily-trained men
back in, the University. These men
and others pitched in nobly. But it is
impossible for a few to properly run
the paper of former Daily standards.
Every reporter and tryout is a stu-
lent in the University in addition to
which he gives much of his time to
get the outside training given through
work on The Daily. As a student, he
nust attend classes the same as oth-
irs, must prepare his lessons similar
to other students, since if ineligible
he will not be allowed, to take part
in any public activity.
The Daily affords many students the
beginning for their newspaper work.
Almost without exception the men and,
women who are gaining newspaper ex-
perience here, wrote their first copy
in this office. As regards editing,
headwriting, and the other essentials
in getting out a paper, a new man at,
the office knows absolutely nothing.
Each must learn, which takes more
than a week or a month. But a few
are capable enough to assume the
duties of night editor without six
months' experience in the office, or its
equality on other newspapers.
Reporters have told of ' instances
on the campus where news has been
refused them, not because it was not
suitable for publication, but because
those who had the information were
afraid such material would be "bungl-
ed." The Daily is willing to admit
this is true, but maintains it is the
wrong attitude to take toward a man
or group of men desirous of learning
something at first hand in which they
hope and expect to earn their living
after they graduate from the Univer-
Beginners in any other work are
bound to blunder. Rome wasn't built
in a day. The kaiser didn't reach
Paris on scheduled 'time. Otherwise
New York might have been compelled

Christmas parcels for soldiers and
sailors must be made as small as pos-
sible and are not to exceed seven
pounds. On account of the reduction
made by 'the French railways in the
weight of parcels that can be sent to
the front, the department at Washing-
ton was also forced to reduce the
standard weight from 20 "to 7 pounds.
H. J. Abbott, local postmaster, yes-
terday emphasized the fact that all
parcels are to be mailed as soon as
possible and not later than Nov. 15.
"The parcels are to be delivered to the
American expeditionary, forces in Eu-
rope on Christmas morning, which
makes an early shipment imperative,"
declared Mr. Abbott.
All parcels will be opened and in-
spected, and special attention paid to
the exclusionof intoxicants, poisons,
explosives and improperly packed
perishable matter.
Postmaster-General Burleson has
set down the following three essentials
for insuring a merry Christmas for
the boys at the front: "Mail early, ad-
dress intelligently, and pack securely."

OW, by D. T. Curtin.-George H.
Doran Co., New York.
A potentially intelligent people, bull-
dozed into submission to an autority
which they do not understand. fol-
lowing, sheep-like, the courses of
thought laid out for them as well as
those of action, and going whither
they do no know,-such is the picture
Mr. Curtin draws of Germany at her
third year of war. The underlying
theme of the book is an exposition of
the misuse which the Germian govern-
ment makes of the massive fo _ce of
public opinion. Public opinion should
of course, be an outgrowth of free
hiscussion among intelligent people.
In Germany, however, according to
Mr. Curtin, instead of originating in
the people, and being a directing force
in the affairs of the natio,. public op-
inion, is a manufactured article, clev-
erly polished to satisfy the appetites of
the people, but in truth sanctioning the
most contemptible and autocratic
movements which the governa.£ent in-
tends to make.
It is significant, in passing judg-
ment on Mr. Curtin's book, to note
that it contains prophesies of the sub-
marine warfare, which did not com-
mence until after the book was writ-
ten, and of a popular revolution in
Germany---a prophesy which has been
fulfilled to some extent already.
