COLLEGE JOURNALISM
"College journalism is one of the
nappreciated arts. And yet it is
,ore than passing strange that it
iould be, for, as a means of prepar-

s equal is difficult to discover among
e various activities of college life.

ish courses in the curriculum
v university are designed to
the required training along
aes. But it is recognised by
acher of English that one of
t serious weaknesses of pre-
training in composition is the
a definite aim of the student
writing, and a corresponding
interest on his part in doing
at has no real purpose.
eport actual events for pub-
in a school paper gives the
both material and purpose;
e is no branch of writing that

demands more excellent practice in
the co-ordination of ideas and rapid-
ity and clearness of observation.
"The desire to write well is incip-
ient in every college student. Nothing
is more amusing than to see a writer
wrap himself in-a maze of words from
which it is more difficult to extract
the meaning than it is to "squeeze
blood from a turnip." Nothing excites
more admiration than a business or
social letter that is couched in clear,
flowing English. Yet many of us con-
tent ourselves with a 'hit and miss'
method of writing on the grounds

spark of genius that enables us to put

"It is the aim of a college paper, to
entertain, to furnish news, and last,

means for the development of literary

The tryouts for various campus
activities remind us that "many are
called, but few are chosen."
Germany's recent muffing of the

Michigan Ambulance Unit Delayed
Section 589 of the army ambulance
service has again been delayed from
sailing to join the expeditionary forces
in France on account of an outbreak
of measles, according to a letter re-
ceived from Frederick W. Shafer, ex-
'18, a member of the section. The con-
tingent included both of the sections
recruited at the University of Michi-
gan last spring, and was scheduled to
leave for Hoboken last Thursday. The
sections are officered by sergeants
