Red Cross Distributes Thousands of
Knitted Garments To Boys
- In Cantonments -
Men in Michigan camps have been
well provided for by the Red Cross in
this state. The report just issued of the
accomplishments of the Bureau for mil-
itary relief since its organization
shows that much has been done to
promote the comfort of the boys in the
three camps under its jurisdiction.
In Fort Wayne, where there are 600
men, and in Seltridge Field, where
there are 900, all have been complete-
lv outfitted with knitted garments.

Tr"sury Department Urges Soldiers
T ake Advantage of Insur-

WashIngton, Jan. 22.-The treasury'
department is making every effort to
,vae eyery member of America's fight-
ing forces take advantage of the gov-
ernment.insurance plan, which Secre-
tary McAdoo asserts to be the "most
just and humane provision ever made
by. any nation for its soldiers and
Thyrpurpose is rapidly being achiev-
ed,, the insurance having passed the
third billion mark in the total of
policies written, and there are many
military units in which every member
has taken insurance.
The ,automatic insurance provided
by the law is only partial and limited
protection, payable only to wife, child,
or widowed mother and ceases after
February 12, 1918. It is important,
therefore, not only to the soldiers and
sailors of the country but to their
families and dependants, that before
that date they'avail themselves of the
full government protection, which can
go1 as high as $10,000, and is payable
to a wife, husband, child, grandchild,
parent, brother, or sister.
-The law also provides for the re-
education and rehabilitation of the tot-
ally disabled, and monthly compensa-
tion to those disabled.

Editor, The Michigan Daily:
As a member of the Mimes and of
the Michigan Union permit me to pub-
licly protest against the allowing of
women to participate in this year's
production of the Union opera.,
Allow me to call attention to the fact
that it is generally announced by the
Union that it is the Mimes who an-
nually present the opera, and regard-
less of the fact that the Union receives
the financial benefits of the work of
the Mimes, it evidently considers their
being so unimportant that they did
not notify its members or call a vote
to discuss this most radical step. This
appears to be unfair if not actually
The Union in.its yearly advertising
campaign and in this very year's ad-
vertising campaign, boasts as one of
its many attractions the fact that only
members of that organization can par-
ticipate in the opera. And yet, with
one foolish stroke they disregard this,
perhaps, their most valuable reason
for claiming student membership.
Of course, were such a step neces-
sary, the members of the Union if
called upon to vote, would hardly
cease the annual production by vot-
ing against the entrance of women in-
to the production.
But regardless of the fact that many
of us join the Union because of the
opera, yet that organization does not
consider it necessary to allow the
Mimes, who, it seems, are the pro-
ducers of the opera, or even the mem-
bers of the Union itself, to assert
themselves upon this most radical
Let me add that I do not consider
it necessary to allow women in the
opera this year. There are plenty of
talented young men on the campus,
some, perhaps, in the freshman classes
who are able to keep up the standard
of the Michigan operas. It strikes me
that the Michigan opera is doomed to
meet with great unpopularity this year
because of this ridiculous measure and
the fact that evidently our old friend,
Mr. Moore, would rather try.out a lit-
tle of his own side work than allow
the Michigan student body a chance to
participate in its own opera.
And the pity of it all is that the
directors in control are foolish enough
to allow it.
Washington, Jan. 22.-Fifty thous-
and common laborers from Porto Rico
and the Virgin Islands will be brought
to th country, if the plans made by
the employment service of the depart-
ment of labor are carried out. As
soon as more tonnage is available,
60,000 others will be imported.
Director Genral McAdoo has asked
the department of labor for this ex-
tra help, to assist the railroads with
labor for maintenance and shop work.
The first men imported will be sent
to the South and Southwest, with the
understanding that they will be re-
leased for farm service during the
press of the agricultural season.
Louis F. Post, assistant secretary of
labor, said today tht all requirements
for common labor could be met by
proper distribution of the domestic
supply and of the American citizens
in Porto Rico and the other islands.
He condemned the agitation for the

importation of Chinese- and Mexicans
as unnecessary and prejudicial."
Report Decrease in Business Failures
Business failures for the week end-
ing January 10, were 324, as com-
pared with 200 last week, 381 in the
like week of 1917, 427 in 1916, 600
in 1915, and 413 in 1914.

Probably Billy Sunday could not
have done a more- unfortunate thing
than he did when he decided to write
a book. Although "Love Stories of
the Bible" is Billy Sunday through
and through, he has failed to realize
that his personality is his greatest
asset, and that for its sake people en-
dure crudities that they will not ac-
cept when laid bare on paper. Words
that stir us deeply in the theater
sound very fiat when repeated at
home. It is not what Billy Sunday has
to say that draws the crowds to hear
him; it is his forceful and convinc-
Ing sincerity. And because he has
been unable to infuse into his book his
own magnetism, it stands as an almost
unbearably crude piece of writing.
Th'ere may be some who will rejoice
to hear that "Samson thought he was
making a big hit because he was mak-
ing a big noise, and had Buffalo Bill
hair," or, that "the world is about
ready to admit that when Adam made
goo-goo eyes at Eve in the Garden of
Eden, and told her she was the only
woman he ever loved, he started
something," but those of us who retain,
to some degree at least, an old-fash-
ioned respect for the Bible as it
stands, will either disregard Mr. Sun-
day's book entirely, or remove what-
ever support we have given him in the
Ifsthe Bible needed elucidation, per-
haps Mr. Sunday's attempt at inter-
pretation might be more acceptable.
But the construction that he has plac-
ed on some of the most exquisite pass-
ages from the scriptures proves not
only that he has neglected to make a
careful study of the stories of which he
has made use, but that he has even
misrepresented the facts as originally
written. Although it may be his priv-
ilege to rewrite the Bible in the lang-
uage which he deems essential to an
understanding of it, yet it is the
privilege of no one to make fundament-
al changes in its structure and pre-
sent the revised form to the public.
