be today is a live, throbbing institu-
y of tion of helpfulness to humanity, to the

>r as A body of college students which
lives in smug complacency .can have
no conception of the needs of this hu-
words- manity, this nation, this world. Col-
pub- lege men and women mus.t be educat-
Arbor ed in something other than the meta-
t bolism of a rabbit or philological re-
each search or anthropomorphism or a doz-
- en and one other abstract studies.
ditor What they need today is a definite
training toward some practical use in
Fison the war. And to that end a knowledge
SJr. of the war is one of the most useful
Pack accessories to national service.
Chief among the war courses which
ooley the university should institute next
- semester should be a study of the his-
nager tory of the war since its beginning-
nager the diplomatic controversies and in-
ager tricates back of it, the series of events
nager which led up to the crisis in 1914 and
the subsequent mobilization of troops

Ibert There are several instructors in the
university who are remarkably well
n qualified to teach such a course and
nter it would find a ready response from
ovitz all students with a serious purpose
oene ahead. Fighting for an unknown or
nport vague cause is following a formula
andis with no knowledge of what it means.

[ause it is, should have an army of leaders

WRITER SUGGESTS THAT NET

Editor, The Michigan Daily;-
When Mr. Bartelme attended a' re-
cent Conference meeting in Chicago
it became very evident from the desire
of the Conference colleges to sched-
ule games with Michigan that Michi-
gan will be very warmly received by
the other universities constituting the
Western -Conference. There will be
no difficulty in making out as heavy
a schedule of intercollegiate contests
as this University can carry out.
There has, however, been a decided
difference of opinion as to the desira-
bility of holding intercollegiate con-
tests at all. Experience with the of-
ficers reserve training camps has dem-
onstrated that "M" men have been
conspicuously successful in securing
commissions, thus showing that men
who possess the qualities for leader-
ship in athletics will probably make
successful leaders in military work.
This would argue strongly for the
desirability of keeping up an active
interest in athletics which interest
is so strongly stimulated by inter-
On the other hand, it is a clear duty
not only of individuals but of associa-
tions to make every sacrifice they can
to assist the government in the win-
ning of the war. If intercollegiate
contests are held many people would
hesitate about spending the money
necessary fo attend if the games are
conducted under the conditions here-
tofore prevailing; that is if the net
earnings of the association are to be
used for the improvement of Ferry
field or other property coming under
the jurisdiction of the Athletic asso-
If, however, Michigan should come
our squarely with the statement that
while athletics are to be encouraged
so far as possible for its own sake,
for the duration of the war the net
earnings of the Athletic association
will be devoted to war relief work, i
feel that not only would such a policy
meet with general approval, but It
would enable Michigan to contribute
in this way very substantially to the
war. If Michigan should initiate a
movement of this kind it is probable
that other universities would follow.
The-, relatively small sacrifice which
our Athletic association would be
called on to make would be only such
as one should make in the present
It would be well to have an expres-
sion of opinion from the student body
concerning the desirability of carry-
ing out the above suggestion.
