College students have been accused
by those opposed to higher education
of being entirely uneducated about the'
world outside of their university. It
is up to us as persons believing in
higher education to explode this old
theory that we are schooled along nar-
row lines, that we know nothing of
what is going on about us.
Reading the news and forming in-
telligent opinions on it is just as much
of a public duty as paying one's taxes
or subscribing to The War Fund and
the man who fails to be posted on
topics of the day when the means is
at hand is a shirker,-a slacker.
We at Illinois can easily become
posted on what is goiflg on in the out-
side world. We are. provincial geo-
graphically, how are we intellectually?

BEGINNERS KNITTING CLASSES

Girls who do not know the rudi-
ments of knitting will be given the
opportunity to learn them at the
Angell house beginning this week.

Mrs. I. R. Reilly in charge from 9:30
to 11:'30 o'clock every Wednesday

Counts As Date
League House-Heads in Noon Meeting
Plaee Fresh Mixer Under En-
"The fresh mixer will be counted as
a dance date for the freshman girls,"
was the decision of Dean Myra B. Jor-
don at the luncheon of the house heads
yesterday. Although the mixer is to
be given in the afternoon, the fresh-
man girls will only be allowed one
other dance date that week.
De'an Jordan also emphasized the
fact that students bolt classes at their
own risk. The attendance committee
will, not warn them as formerly. It
was announced that the grades of
those failing in scholarship can be
secured from the clerk of the regis-
Hereafter, meetings of the house-
heads are to be made impersonal dis-
cussion groups for the solving of cer-
tain social problems in women's hous-
es. Louise Potter, '16, urged the im-
portance of social life in women's
houses and will be glad to speak at any
league house or sorority on house or
group social organization.
GIRLS TO FORM
Organization Begun by Y. W. C. A.
Has Big National Membership;
No Dues Required
High school girls of Ann Arbor are
soon to have the opportunity of be-
coming junior members of the Patriot-
ic league of America, according to
Miss Florence Pride, general secre-
tary of the city Y. W. C. A.
Organized last spring by special war
workers of the Y. W. C. A., the Patriot-
ic league now has a national member-
ship of 200,001 girls. Many city Y. W.
C. A. members have already joined,
but there has been no active campaign
here. Battle Creek and Kalamazoo
have been very active and have enroll-
ed over 2,000 girls up to the present
No money is necessary, but the girls
are required to take the following
pledge: "Realizing my nation's need,
I will express my patriotism by doing
whatever work I have to do, to the
best of my ability. I will be dignified,
thoughtful of the welfare of others,
including women of other nations,
careful to keep such standards of liv-
ing as shall make me a good citizen,
and I will render whatever service
t can, at this time, to my country."
Oregon Girls Veto Suffrage Talk
Sorority girls of Oregon university
refused to listen to addresses on
woman suffrage attempted by two of
their members at a banquet recently.
The harangues were seditious and un-
patriotic, according to the Oregon Em-
Second preliminary meeting of the

tonight in Barbour gymnasium.
Classes in required gymnasium work

meet all seniors, juniors, and sopho
mores intending to play basketball, at

Rev. Caroline Bartlett Crane, state
chairman of the Women's committee,
Michigan division, council of national
defense, urges reform in Christmas
giving upon the women of the state.
With the exception of very young
children, Reverend Crane emphasizes
the importance of limiting this year's
holiday gifts to the soldiers at home
and abroad, to the nurses caring for
the wounded, to the local charities,
and to those who are actually in need.
She says :
"In giving to the needy, let our
contributions be made as far as pos-
sible through already existing agenc-
ies, to be expended by them for those,
in need. Even the children can be en-
couraged to participate in this form of
Christmas giving, and they will ap-
preciate to a greater extent thantever
before, the real joy of giving. At the
same time they will be learning a les-
son in real patriotism."
Ohio State university has included
in its curriculum for next semester
a course in war ethics.
