Editor, The Michigan Daily:
The following paragraph from an
editorial by the ablest editor in the
state of Michigan, an alumnus of the
University, and in ordinary times an
enthusiastic football fan, ought to
furnish us-all some food for thought.
It runs as follows:
"While conservation and economy
are making fine headway in our homes
and while ordinary business men are
running their affairs as sensibly as
conld be desired, there are many plac-
es in the country where the proper'
spirit of war time does not seem to
have taken root.
"Over at Ann Arbor, for one exam-
ple, they played a big game of foot-
ball the other day-not for exercise,
but for the sake of the crowds, the
gate receipts and the 'glory.' Money
that was needed for powder and band-
ages was spent freely for sport, and
engines hauled players and rooters
while coal lay unmoved at the mine
mouth, and shipyards were waiting
for steel plates."
Recommends Editorial
The whole editorial rings out like
a fire bell in the night to the whole
Country. That copy of the Adrian Tele-
gram ought to be read by every Am-
erican.
It is possible to fight this war t ali
ultimate victory in the casual, trifling
way that marks our present conduct,
but it will take twice as long and cost
twice as much in blood and treasure
as if we got down at once to the sac-
rifices, which in time, will be forced
upon us. We may go on tossing an
obulum now and then to Belisarius in
the person of President Wilson or Mr.
Hoover, but if every one were ready
now to do more than his "bit"-to do
all one can-the end would be in sight.
University communities, presumably in-
telligent above the average, ought to
be an example in these matters to less
forward communities. They ought to
lead in sacrifice and devotion.
Must Look to Future
We do not wish to have some future
satirist point out that when the world
was burning we fiddled. I can imagine
him pointin'g out in a satirical way
that when silly, old institutions like
Harvard and Yale could not get ath-
letes enough together to form an elev-
en, we did business as usual. He will
dwell on the fact that when some
other universities were drilling every
man who was physically fit, at Mich-
igan only half of the eligible men took
the military training while the rest
kept fit for war by sitting on the
bleachers for hours patiently and de-
votedly cheering the players.

even suggest that yellow was our
specialty. Of course, he will have to
admit that a lot of students and fac-
ulty men did get excited and buy
Liberty bonds at four per cent when
they could have bought others much
more profitable, but he will not for-
get that some might have bought more
had they been patriotic enough to
forego the Philadelphia game. He will
not forget to have his fling at those
who kept cool and did not rush madly
into self denial when a lot of "fool
fraternities and sororities" got excit-
ed and had meatless and wheatless
days.
Future Will Judge
Surely we do not wish to deserve
all these taunts from a later genera-
tion. We cannot be content to have
Michigan big merely in numbers. She
must be big and devoted in spirit as
well. We must have our share in this
great fight for the world's liberty, and
it must be a generous, not a mean and
grudging share. Every Michigan
man must act as if success depended
upon him and him alone.

Steel Magnate's Wife Knits 34 Sweaters
Mrs. Charles M. Schwab, wife of the
steel magnate, has personally knit 35
sweaters and a dozen helmets to
various war relief committees, as a re-
sult of the summer's work with her
knitting needles. Other members of
her household, including the men,
have contributed 50 sweaters, 2 doz-
ens pairs of socks, 12 scarfs, 12 hel-
mets and 6 pairs of wristlets.
