Editor, The Michigan Daily:
During the past few weeks, the
campus has discussed, somewhat spas-
modically, the question of doing away
with certain petty vanities of life.a
The Junior hop, the wearing of sleeve-
less jackets by students, and excessive
smoking have occupied the forum.
Wednesday night, at the mass meet-;
ing, the Rev. Lloyd C. Douglas made
another addition to the list. The cost
of chrysanthemums worn at the Cor-
nell game, he said, was sufficient to
supply food for 100 wounded soldiers
through their period of convalescence.
Of course, the football season, so far
as local games are concerned, is now
past. Consequently, no more chrysan-
themums will be worn on Ferry field
this year. But it is not too late to
say a word in order to prevent this
useless expenditure from being made
again next year; when conditions will
probably be worse and economy will,
more than ever, be imperative.
"Mums" and the Girl
Can any girl, with the faintest spark
of patriotism, demand that her escort
supply her with one, two, three, a
half dozen, or a dozen chrysanthe-
mums-or for that matter, of any oth-
er flower? Or can she respect the man
who caters to her idle whims by the
use of money which should be flowing
to the support of some worthy cause?
And what about the man himself? He
is just as culpable, and his part in re-
moving the evil is equally- important.
Is Your Sweater Watermelon Green'.
Now, just a few words in regard to
the much-discussed sweater question.
While Mr. Douglas was speaking,
there sat next to me a girl who was
busily occupied in the knitting of a
green sweater. Probably for some
soldier who- sleeps on snow-covered
ground or in water-filled trench?
Yet this girl, is "doing her bit"-for
her own self.
Campus Shoold Awake
If the United States is going to win'
this war with a minimum sacrifice of
human life, the campus, as a part of
the great Amercan democracy, must
awake to the necessity of making sac-
rifices. If the world is to be kept
out of the reach of the iron hand of
'Kultur," every man and woman
must uhite for the supreme effort by
eliminating the trivialities, and b3
