THE PARTY RATE
How is the actual cost of service
Iph the taxicab companies deliver
rth the exhorbitant rate they de-
,nd for parties? Why should they
lrge 25 cents for the average run
ring the day, and two dollars per
iple for a round trip some special
nings?
We admiit that the cost of operating
siness at night may be slightly more
xn an ordinary day haul. But we
question its cost in excess of pos-
fly possibly 10 per cent higher. We
admit that the cost of tires, gaso-
e, and accessories is higher than
merly. But other cities are not
nplaining, and as a whole they are
ng given cheaper rates for longer
uls than our own. The cost of op-
ting big machines is greater than
rds', the rule in Ann Arbor, and
her gites use big machines, certain-
more of a comfort to the rider.
Phe companies more than once have
led to live up to the present ordi-
nce in regard to parties. Last win-
one wanted three dollars the
md trip for a certain dance.rThose
charge knew the limit was two dol-
s and immediately secured another
inpany. This is only one instance
which a company was perfectly
iiing to break the present ordinance
)vided it could do it.
ARTING THE FRESHMEN RIGHT
dn idea that has been tried out by
e fraternity in Ann Arbor in regard
Michigan activities seems to be one
it is indeed worthy of imitation by
ory chapter at Michigan.
fn the first week of November, after
s freshmen have become familiar
th the campus, the city and Michi-

a activities, the house head calls a
eting, requiring all of the freshmen
be present. 'He then explains to
m Michigan ideals and Michigan
stoms. Because of his intimate as-
ciations with them, the first-year
,n take seriously whatever he has to
1 them.
At the close of the meeting, he calls
m one by one, eliciting their indi-
ual promises to engage in some
rthy activity. Then he makes a
t of these men and the activity they
efer, and gets them started right, so
it year after. year, every man in
house is engaged in doing some-
ng for Michigan.
There are two reasons entering into
3 institution of this scheme-one of
;m to make the fraternity promin-
; through the individual prominence
its members, and the other to work
the betterment of Michigan. The
> reasons interlock, the two insti-
ions consequently interlock, and
th are bettered as a result.

THE VOCATIONAL CONFERENCE
It has been said that the only pro-
fessions for which women of this Uni-
versity prepare themselves are teach-
ing and marriage. Inaccurate as, gen-
eralizations of the kind necessarily are,
this comes unfortunately too near the
truth. That these are probably the two
noblest professions in which women
can engage, is no reason why all wom-
en should ,undertake one or the other
of them as a life work. All men do
not attempt to become doctors or min-
isters, although public opinion no
doubt regards them as representing the
highest type of endeavor.
The chief benefit of the vocational
conference which the Women's leagud
brings to Ann Arbor every fall, is not
the number of careers decided, al-
though this is not small. It is the fact
that the minds of women are opened
to the variety of work which the world
offers them. Without a stimulus such
as this, women can drift into conven-
tional or accessible occupations, simp-
ly because they have never in their
lives had their attention directed to
work for which they are quite pos-
sibly better fitted.
We have wheatless days and meat-
less days, and now maybe we'll have
taxiless nights.
The latest war reports from Macar-
oni state that- the Austrians have cap-
tured 60 miles of spaghetti on the
Isonzo front
One of those adorable women stu-
dents recently said that the new Union
looked "just like the Martha Cook
building."
The man with the statistics is out,
but it is safe to say that student pat-
ronage means something to the taxi
companies.
Especially when the women have
offered to walk to parties to aid in
campus economy.
Our friend, the three cent stamp,
looks fine and refreshed after its
long vacation.
Just to keep our joy at the thought
of the game Saturday from bubbling
over, some of the professors are an-
nouncin mid-semesters.

RAPS TAXICABCOMPAIES
STUDENT BELIEVES RECKLESS
"PROFITEERING" AT PRESENT
TIME SHOULD BE STOPPED.
Editor, The Michigan Daily:
An issue has been raised by the
faculty and students of the University
of Michigan relative to the action of
the city taxicab companies in raising
their rates. This matter is easily dis-
posed of when looked at from the right
point of view. Surely the taxi com-
panies should be willing to co-operate
with the people who are their. main
patrons, namely, the faculty and stu-
dents of the University. Now when
every patriotic student in the Univer-
sity is endeavoring to the best of his
ability to economize, it would be a rank
injustice to impose any extra burdens
upon him either directly or indirect-
ly. --
Many people say: "Let him walk if
he wishes to economize." That is good
reasoning and every student who
thinks twice will act accordingly, but
there are times when the use of a taxi
borders on necessity rather than lux-
ury. In that case if the rates are rais-
ed the burden will rest on the afflu-
ent person, on whom it should rest, or
upon the less fortunate victim of cir-
cumstances, and it is the latter per-
son with whom we are concerned.
Many students and members of the
faculty are buying Liberty bonds,
many are subscribing to the Y. M. C.
A. army fund, many are helping the
Red Cross. Many students are work-
ing their way through school and
buying Liberty bonds at the same time.
Is not this patriotism? Should these
men be imposed upon? Why can't
this issue be put up to the taxi com-
panies in this light? Surely, they are
expected to get into the band wagon
and do their patriotic bit.
It is the hope of every true Amer-
ican, that the days of profiteering are
over at least for the duration of the
war. Does every merchant expect to
make the same profit he did previous
to the war? If he does he is a lucra-
tive parasite whose only thought is the
eternal "ego" and whose selfish aims
will help to prolong the war.
It may be that the taxi companies
are paying more for gasoline and gen-
eral up keep but that does not alter
the situation. They have endeavored
to railroad an ordinance through the
city council with the sole aim of dis-
criminating against the faculty and
students who are their main support.
They must not expect to make the pro-
fit they did formerly especially now
that their patrons are undergoing ex-
tra burdens imposed by the war. It
is ludicrous to even think of meatless,
wheatless and sweetless days if we al-
low such a palpable injustice as this
one proposed by the taxi companies.
A JUNIOR LAW.
SEND SOLDIERS SWEITES
WRITER OBJECTS TO CIVILIANS
WEARING GARMENTS DESIGNED
FOR "SAMMIES"
Editor, The Michigan Daily:
On Saturday evening I went into
Huston's to get the football scores,
and while there noticed a young man,
possibly a student, playing billiards,
and attired in a gray sleeveless sweat-
er. I remarked to a group of stu-
dents standing' there that it seemed
to me rather inappropriate for stu-
dents to be wearing these grey sweat-
ers when we were told that there was
such great need for them for the

men in the trenches. My suggestion
did not seem to awaken the slightest
interest in this group and I was as-
sured that I would very soon see a

sonsiderable number of the boys wear-
ing these sweaters.
Several times since returning home;
on Saturday I have had impressed on;
me the great need for yarn to supply
the women who are anxious to knit
sweaters and other comforts for the
men in France. In fact I have con-
tributed twice within three days to
funds for this purpose, and it oc-
curred to me that I could make a
larger contribution by suggesting that
the Student Senate, or whatever body'
has control or influence over the stu-
dent body in general, should ask any
students having in their possession
these sleeveless grey sweaters to
bring them to some specified place,
preferably the Red Cross headquar-
ters, so that they might ;immediately
be sent to our boys in France. The
cold weather will be on even now be-
fore they are received, and there will
be great need for them in the camps
and in the trenches. Petsonally, JI
cannot conceieve of a student who
owns a suit of clothes actually need-
ing one of these sweaters, and I am
confident 'that they will only need to
be reminded of the need of the sol-
diers to cause them to turn in these
garments. It 'would seem to me that
it would or should be, a very un-
popular thing to wear these sweaters
around an institution that has made
the record for service that Michigan
has, under existing circumstances.
The boys in the army stores course
and those who are excused on leave
to pursue engineering, dentistry and
other courses at the suggestion of the
war authorities, might of course with
propriety wear these sweaters and in
that case it should be a mark of dis-
tinction.
