THE BLIND FAITH
When a man becomes of college age,
he is expected to have a breadth of
toutlook, a certain perspective that
comes only through independent ob-
servation and thought. He is Axpect-
ed to have opinions and judgments, no
matter how unreasonable or radical,
that are his own. The college man is
a superior being, in a way, for he has
advantages for mental development
which a very small percentage of his
fellow creatures may claim.
Yet the .college man is curiously in-
consistent in certain ways. The av-
erage university man is aggressive
and positive; he has opinions and be-
flefs that he calls his own, and in
which he devoutly believes; yet ask
him for his reasons and he falters
and cannot answer.
One of the great fundamentals of life
r is religion. A college man's choice
of a certain sect and belief, however,
is not usually his own; it is usually
the choice of his parents. He follows
blindly in their footsteps, taking their
religion at its face value, because it
is their religion. That is always rea-
son enough. He makes no voluntaryl
choice; his creed is thrust down his
throat; he does not think for himself;
he allows others to think for him.
Ask any student you meet of what
political party he is a member.( Then
ask him to what party his father
belongs. And see if the same party
is not repeated in this second answer
in nearly 100 per cent of the cases.
Voltaire refused to accept the teach-
ings of his fathers until he' had sat-
isfied himself of their truth. Some
he discarded; others he kept. Robert
Ingersoll could not reconcile himself
with the principles of Christianity in
its narrow meanings. And men call-
ed this class atheists. But to the
thinker, his brain unmuddled by an
accumulation of hypocrisy, super-
stition and fable, these men are great
men. For they thought for them-
selves.
LOSING TO CASE
Michigan's initial attempt in basket-
ball in its narrower conception1 may
be classed a failure. The team lost to

CHURCHES REPORT INCREASE IN
SUNDAY IMORNIN ATTENDANCE
"Go-To-Church" Sunday was re-
sponsible for a considerable increase
i. church attendance among stu-
dents last Sunday, according to pas-
tors of Ann Arbor. Although it was
impossible to determine the exact
number of students pres'ent, it is re-
ported that students' guilds and study
classes were well attended.
Christmas services were held at
many of the churches. At the First
Baptist church, special mention was
made of the 45 members of the congre-
gation who are now in military ser-
vice. There will be a Christmas tree
and program at this church at 8 h'-
clock Thursday evening, and members
will bring gifts suitable for children
in hospitals, or contributions or gifts
for the Charity organization of Ann
Arbor.

Perhaps the loss of the first game
was the best thing which could hap-
pen to the team. It is new, composed
entirely of players' who, until Satur-
day night had never played intercol-
legiate basketball.
The team must have learned some-
thing which will be of great help to
them later in the season. They learn-
ed more losing than would have. been
the case had they won. A bigger les-
son is always fastened upon defeat
than victory.
If this same lesson, and the others
they will learn, traceable perhaps, to
the first contest, will renain with the
team and coach throughout the sea-
son, we have little reason to fear that
our first year with basketball will be
other than a success.
Algebraically speaking, ability to
get up for 7:30's seems to vary in-
versely with the lowness of temper-
ature.
