bscribe for the Michigan Daily.

The University of Michigan is no
different in war times from other na-
tional institutions, for the women are
replacing the men here as they are
in factory, workshop, and farm
throughout the country.
True, there have been no women
,masquerading as men trying to make
the football team-as other members
of the gentler sex have tried to get
"over there" in the uniform of our
Sammies. The University women have
not become class presidents nor are
they running for football managers.
They have left a few jobs open to the
men on the campus.
But the Michigan Daily office, where
the violent expressions that go with
the editing of a cub's copy are com-
monly heard, has been invaded by the
women ands the office chairs are to
be padded and the typewriter ribbons
,scented, according to a late report.
There is a sense of tidiness about the
paper-strewn offices, and the rooms
are being swept now.

And that is not the worst. It seems
there is a dire plot on foot to make
a knitting-circle of the women's staff
of The Daily. The click of the needles
is to mingle with that of the lino-
typers and the typewriters. The
dropped stitch will replace the drop-
ped slug.. The line of yarn will super-
sede the line of-oh well, it's called
by various names, that line of stuff
the reporters write. And the "oh's
and ah's" that accompany the sweater
for brother or the scarf for sister, are
to be the common expressions in the
rooms where harsher words have oft
been- spoken.
Oh, well, those of us on The Daily
staff who have survived the old daysj
can now sit back and see our college
paper go to press under the super-
vision of our women editors, we can
but endure the changes that are bound
to come. And all the time we realize
that war's tragedies are not limited to
the field of battle, that those at home
must suffer also.

VANDERVELDE BECLARES THAT
GERMANY MUST
SE TTLE
London, Oct. 3.-What the famous
peace formula of "Reparation, Resti-
tution, and Guarantees" means to
Belgium, is set forth in an interview
given by Emile Vandervelde, the Bel-
gian statesman, who is now in Lon-
don.
"The reparation and the restitution
that we demand," he said, "is first
that our country itself shall be given
back to us; and then that its despoil-
ers shall be made to provide the
means whereby our nation may be re-
created. We demand from Germany
the return of the money exacted from
us, the restitution of the productive
material and machinery of which we
have been deprived, and the where-
withal to make good the general hav-
oc of war. It will be a big bill, but
it will have to be met, and by Ger-
many.
'Let me not be misunderstood. Re-
paration must not be confused with
indemnities. I am no supporterof
any policy of fining Germany. But
Belgium must be restored. That is
our demand.
"On the question of guarantees for
the future security of our country,
the guiding thought must be that Bel-
gium can be free only in a free Eu-
rope, and on the fight for the liberty
of Belgium depends the liberty of Eu-
rope.
"There can be no lasting peace
without what I may call a Society of
Nations, and that can only be when
all the nations are democratized.
When the democracy of Germany
realizes that, we shall be drawing
near the end.
"As for Belgium, her name will al-
ways be the synonym and emblem of
sorrow and sacrifice. Picture if you
can her condition after three years
of war in which she has bled well
nigh to death. Her towns and vil-
lages have been burnt and devastated.
Her people have been tortured and
butchered. She is desolate and
drenched with blood."
