ED POSITIONS THIS
Editor, The Michigan Daily:
The Michigan Union during the past
year, has met with the greatest diffi-
culty in filling its many committees.
MIost of the men who had, in previous
years, acquired experience in Union
work, and thereby made themselves
the logicall men to fill responsible pos-
tions, left school last spring to enter
their country's service. It was with
great difficulty that their places were
At Christmas time so many of the
men who have be'en active in the Un-
ion this year had left school for the
service of their country, that there is
today hardly a committee intact, and
in some cases committees are entirely
vacant. In addition, so many of the
men on our'reserve list are gone, that
we found it necessary to commence
anew our organization for the 'second
se ester. We, therefore, ask all Un-
on men who are in any way interest-
ed in the Union and the work it seeks
to do, to come to the building, Thurs-
day or Friday of this week, and sign
the "Application for Committeeship
List," at the cashier's desk.
The, president will be in his office
'rom 4 to 5:30 o'clock Thursday and
Friday to consult with. applicants
about the activities of the Union and
the ways in which they can help to
carry them out. From this list the
personnel of the committees will be
made up, and every signer will be
given consideration. Experience in
Union and campus work is not nec-
essary, but if the applicant has had
any, he should state it in the' applica-
This- is an opportunity for every Un-
itn, man to volunteer to do work for
a strong Michigan institution and a
chance to "do his bit" on the cam-
pus. We need him. .As a member of
the Union it is his duty to help carry
on its wide and important work.
