SAYS COMMANDANT HAS ORDERS
TO ENROLL GREATEST NUMBER
POSSIBLE IN CORPS.
Editor, The Michigan Daily:
It is really a pity that Mr. H. S.
Liddell' sociological, philosophical,
and historical studies should have
been disturbed by Lieutenant Mullen's-
recent appeal to the men of Michigan,
as "interpreted" in Sunday's Daily.
Strange it is that Mr. Liddell even
found time to read that appeal.
I wonder if Mr. Liddell knows that
in the matter pf organizing our Uni-
versity ,to meet war-needs, it is a ques-
tion with Lieutenant Mullen not mere-
ly of admirable ambition but of orders:
to enroll the greatest possible num-
ber of men in the R. 0. T. C.?
I wonder if Mr. Liddell realizes that
in the face of appalling difficulties
Lieutenant Mullen, with consummate
skill and tact, is achieving one suc-
cess after another with such con-
vincing sureness that when, through a
e, former Unit-
d chaplain in

SAYS INTROIDUCTION OF WOMEN
PUTS PRESENTATION ON CON-
NON COMEDY BASIS.
Editor, The Michigan Daily:
I wish to state the hearty disap-
proval of myself and others against
women taking part in the Union.opera.
It is a step directly contrary to Mich-
igan spirit and tradition. The senti-
ment of the student body towards wo-
men in connection with the Union was
strongly expressed at the last Band
Bounce when they were denied mem-
The Union and its activities belong
to the men of this University. A pre-
requisite for participation in the opera
has always been membership in the
Union. How can that be changed
now? Beside this, such a step would
absolutely change the spirit and tra-
dition of former operas because the
introduction of women into the chorus
and cast would put the production on
a plane with every musical comedy
and as such it could never hope to
compete because of lack of drill, etc.;
Furthermore, the big point of the
opera from the standpoint of those
who witness it is the fact that men
are taking the women's parts.
Ask any old grad's opinion on the
matter. That is the reason more peo-
ple go to see the opera than the play
the Comedy club puts on. The ex-
cuse for this step, is, I upderstand,
that there are not enough' feminine
types among the men. Can you im-
agine anyone stepping out in front
of Ted Wurster, last year's leading
lady, and calling him a feminine type?
If more men are necessary let the
freshmen try out, but at least lets get
the opinion of the campus before we
let women in the opera.

drafted privates, by merely giving an
hour or two a day to their country?
I wonder, in fact, whether Mr. Lid-
dell has heard that there is a war go-
ing on? His whole argument, which
is sufficiently well written to make a
little mischief among the unthinking,
is based on a false premise., He im-
plies that students are being called
away from their studies; whereas, in
reality, it is only on the strength of
their University training that they are
being given the privilege of qualify-
ing as officers-and in such a manner
as to interfere scarcely at all with
their regular work. The whole scheme
is a triumph of brilliant and efficient
organization, conceived and executed
by "men of mature years and sober
judgment." We need trained teachers
by the thousand-that is why the col-
lege men are given the ground-floor
entry. But the world has less use
than ever for pedants.
