THE REAL QUESTION
every deck there is a joker. And
and that the association of Ann
r Taxicab companies is playing
st the common council, the peo-
if the city, and the students of
niversity,.contains that joker.
tden underneath the legitimate

t increase their passenger rates,

ly as far as we are willing to go.
o can see the fairness in paying
ats for every stop enroute? Five
worth of gasoline is seldom

is no wear and tear on tires.
nly extra expenses for the stop to

e driver. Ten cents and not 25

cents as now asked, ought to cover
that nicely.
For a theater, rate, the charge per
couple to the performance is $1. The
theaters in Ann Arbor all commence
before 9 o'clock, when the 35 cent
passenger rate, for that is what they
ask, is still the correct one. Granting
them their exorbitant demand of 25
cents per stop, the total should be 95
cents and not $1 which they ask. Here
is one case of padding. But perhaps
there is more wear and tear on the
taxi going down Main street, and we
ought to give the extra nickle galdly.
Then the companies ask 35 cents to
deliver a trunk from the depot to
the first floor of its destination. For-
getting the fact that they almost in-
evitably leave it on the front porch,
we still claim that this charge is ex-
orbitant. They are piled upon a truck,
jounced about the city, usually de-
livered late, and, after one or two
of these trips, are fit to be consigned

they are to be charged for at the pass-~
enger rate, they should receive te'
same protection from the elements
and be delivered with the same lis-
patch.
The standard rate per hour for un-
skilled laborfall over the country is
25 cents. It seldom takes more than
five minutes to carry a trunk to the
second floor, and at this rate, the taxia
companies ask $3.00 an hour for labor.
And on Sundays, they propose to
double the rate and charge $6 an
hour.,
If it took gasoline and tires and oil
and repairs to carry a trunk up one
flight of stairs, we might feel justi-
fled in paying the companies this
price.
Even the most prejudiced of judges
can see that the companies are try-
ing to take advantage of an increased
expense in one phase of their work,
and increase their prices in all the de-
partments. That's what makes it
hurt; that's adding insult to injury.,
These pre-game speculations of the
rival coaches accomplish one thing
anyway., After reading them all, you
can still pick your choice as to the
winner.

German soldiers are on a variety
diet this week, asit has been reported
that Caviar and Vodka have been tak

Before the war the Germans were
"verboting." Now they're U-boating.

Editor, The Michigan Daily:c
We have heard much during the
present war of the value of whole-
some amusement for the soldier; not
only in connection with the spirit ofl
contentment which it fosters, butt
also as a means of relieving the nerv-
ous tension and building up new phy-
sical and mental efficiency. This in-{
fluence as I-have found it in the train-
ing camps of the national army may7
be accredited almost entirely to the
Young Men's Christian association. {
It -is a fact that the soldier's life
at best is quite barren of most of the
home comforts and environm-ants.
Any institution in connection with the1
army, which can in some measure, a*.
least, make up for this loss, is bourd
to make its influence greatly felt.
This is exactly what the Y. M. C. A.
is doing.
For each regiment there is a Y.
M. C. A. building, and at each build-
ing an especial effort is made to in-
still esprit de corps into the boys
who gather there. It cannot help
but sucqeed, for when a group of men
hear their own band playing good
music every evening-"jazz" music,
too, and some excel at this variety-
hear their own squad mates singing
harmony, sit before the big grate fire,
with boys of their own regiment and
write their letters home, elbow to
elbow with their own companions at
drill, they must be drawn involuntar-
ily into a pride for their regiment and
a sympathy for their comrades in that
regiment, whom they come to know as
they never knew each other in civilian
life.
Many of the "back homers" who
look forward to letters from the son,
brother, or pal who isin camp, may
thank the Y. M. C. A. that they come
as often as they do. There are prac-
tically no facilities for writing ex-
cept at the "Y." Notice how many
of your letters from the boys in camp
have a flag on the envelope.
We do not feel that we can say too
much for the army Y. M. C. A. It
is doing all in its power, and that is
much, to provide for us what the
folks at home would give us if they
could. Between "retreat" and "taps,"
you will see the "Y's" crowded and
the "doughboys" happy. Boost for the
