NQW THAT THE GRADES ARE1
OUT-
iohigan should speed up. She
offd reach an efficiency this semest-
Phigher than she has done. We have
en . too many of the old type of
refree students in the past five
mths.
The life of the student is a priceless
e. None of us, once here, would be
ling to sacrifice our college days. It
an .opportunity which comes to too
w of us.
But this year, and possibly for many
airs to come, the student should
uisfortn himself into something big-
r. There is more to be done than
er. The opportunity for national
rvce lies on every hand waiting to
taken up. College life should not
all "A's" and nothing else, no
ould it resolve Itself into week-end
ips. It is vastly better that we
ould be in uniform than that we
ould continue to be the old type of
gdent.'
A HERfTAGE
Stanley Augspurger, '17, is the first
ichigan man to give his life upon
reign soil since the entrance of the
ited States into the gigantic strug-
e for Christian altruism; he is Mich-
an's Initial sacrifice, the fist of us
carve his name upon the tablet
at is to remind our nation that our
iiversity is for the country and with
.e country to the last.
Those of uswho knew Stanley Aug-
urger need only to picture him as
e last saw him to realize something
Michigan's first loss. As a man,
represented a fine type of Mich-
an man; as a friend, he proved him-
If to be one of the kind that contri-
tes more than congeniality and per-
nal charm alone; for us who' knew
ma only casually, it must be realized
at the country and the University
,ye lost one of the type of men who
e the cornerstones upon which both
ructures are builded.
RELICS
Remember when you were a little
aver, and used to ask your mother
r some bread and jam? And re-
amber how you used to go out to
ay, with the bread and jam very
Ich in evidence?
And remember how you used to take

ur lunch to school with you in a
te black box because you lived too
r to come home at noontimes? And
ed to pass around apples and cake
the other fellows and sometimes the
icher? And the all-day suckers-for
ER?
Most of those childhood habits have
ssed away with our childhood days.
e have become grown-up now, and

must be dignified. But there is oneI
custom that still prevails, and we can
see it on our own campus. We have
remained true to one relic of our
rade school days.
. We still, bring our lunches to class.
True, we do not carry them in baskets
or little black lunch boxes, and more's
the pity. They are put up for us in
smaller and more convenient packages
-they cost five cents, and are called
by various names, Spearmint, Jiicy
Fruit, Black Jack, and so on. But the
spirit of childhood is there. It must
be very gratifying to a professor to
find that all his students have not!
grown-up; everybody likes children.
Of course, the habit of chewing gum
is a disgusting one, and reminds one
of the cow chewing her cud. And
sometimes, the gum chewers make
so much noise that the lecturer is
quite outdistanced. But these are
minor points, and we bear them ch'eer-
fully, for the sake of bygone days.
It would be a shame if we became so
hardened that no relic of our infancy
remained. Let us keep up the tradi-
tion; let us continue to chew gum in
classes; let others say it is ungentle-
manly, disgusting; we know we are
in the right. We must show the world
that childhood is not dead, even in a
university.
We take pleasure in presenting our
readers with the latest methods of
spelling, as advocated by our may-we-
say-noted contemporary, the Gargoyle.
In its February editorial "Women in
the Union Opera," we are faced with
these words-hyprocit, catagory, de-
liniation, and enterprize.

SECOND
SEMESTER

The Thrift and War Savings stamp
campaign will succeed just as the other
war-fund campaigns have succeeded-
by reason of the driving force of the
men back of it. The campus, I dare
say, is potentially heroic. I presume
that there are among us those who
do the painful right without admon-
ition. But, unfortunately, most of us
can be aroused from our indifference
only by the heavy artillery of oratory,
the frenzy ofta mass meeting, or the
spectacular appeal of a parade. It is
a pity that we cannot be-depended upon
to meet the obligations of our citizen-
ship without obtrusive incitements,
so that the energy expended in our
behalf might be conserved for other
purposes.
The war seems to be farther from the
campus than fromh other communities.
True, 3,000 men have gone from among
us into service, and the student cadets
are daily reminders of the conflict
over-seas. But these 3,000 men have
not left with us a tragic sense of loss,
except among a few of their intimate
associates. The student cadets afford
an interesting diversion. We have
our old security and most of our usual
comforts. There is little sense of
strain upon us. The academic routine
and the pleasant distractions of college
life tend to divert our attention from
those unheroic but none the less in-
sistent duties which remain for us
to do, and which, left undone, cannot
fail to add to the hardships of the men
who are fighting our battles for us,
hardships which may eventuate in de-
feat at the front. The people to whom
the departure of our student soldiers
brings a realization of the grim real-
ity of the war live in the home com-
munities from which these men come.
It is in these communities that the
Thrift stamp campaign will be 100 per
cent effective.
I wish that we did not have to be

reminded of the advantageous invest-
ment attending the purchase of War
Savings stamps, but that we could be
relied upon to subscribe to our full
share of them, merely to satisfy our'
sense, of loyalty to the great crusade
t which our country and her allies"
have committed themselves. Only as
we forget our own needs and devote
ourselves to the needs of others, shall
we endow our citizenship with the
most sacred of privileges-that of sac-
rificing for an ideal. Every gift that
we freely give to the cause of liberty
will react upon us as a kind of spir-
itual cleansing and make us more
worthy of the high privilege of our
citizenship. This world crusade must
be carried forward with all the com-
pelling energy that is born of great
faith. The question for each of us to
ask is: "1-low large a share shall I
have in this struggle to free the hu-
man spirit?"

Caryatid
Did you ever see the Gargoyle wits
line up tq, take their turns at fumbl-
ing the well-worn pages of Mr. Web-
ster (Noah, not Daniel)? Don't you
think it would be worth the war tax?
You're on; head a column with a word
of four syllables of other than Anglo-
Saxon derivation and watch results.
According to the G. M. N. in A. A.,
our soldiers in France are setting up a
willful howl for American soap,'cold
cream, and like products conducive to
those qualities which ar4 next to god-
liness and only skin deep. No doubt
they have realized that many an oth-
erwise attractive soldier finds him-
self a failure because of a poor com-
plexion. At any rate, trench talk
will probably be something on this
order when the consignment arrives
"Good morning, have you used
Pears' soap?"
"No, but I've got a little fairy in my
home. Look at Jim. He's got the skin
you love to touch. Wait until he's
been out in the front line a couple of
days. He'll let the Gold Dust twins do
the work."
"They have to use Ivory out there
because it floats. Say, could you get
into your shirt atfer the monthly
wash?"
"Sure; MY mama used Wool soap.
Do you know that they call the fel-
lows back at headquarters Bon Amis?
They haven't scratched yet."
"Gosh, what a jolt!"
"Oh, well, there's beauty in every
jar." a
He couldn't complain, he had no rea-
son to seek the registrar, he didn't
wire, home or send her a Valentine. He
didn't even go on a Reunion Party.
He gazed with haunting disappoint-
ment at his little square card. Helas!t
He had carried five courses and had re-
ceived only five A's; last year he
had received six. Satiety is the Great
Delusion.
It is so long since we have been to
a cock-fight that we could almost en-
joy prosecuting ourselves for it.
