WHAT OF RUSSIA?
When the decision of Lenine to quit
the war, although he refused to sign
a treaty of peace with his Teuton ad-
versaries, was flashed across the
wires, it roused a storm of conster-
nation. Officials were frank in their
gloom; apprehension filled the minds
of all. And yet, looking back over
the developments of the past few days
who can say whether the action was
one of the worst examples of turn
coat diplomacy or a stroke of genius,
a masterpiece of statesmanship com-
parable only to the most brilliant
moves of Napoleon and Franklin.
Looking back over the tense mo-
ments of the past week,tthe latter
judgment seems by far the wiser.
Lenine, without warning, without
precedent, has brought about the fol-
He has satisfied the Russian people
that he was sincere in his efforts to
bring about a cessation of military
He has placed Germany squarely
between the horns of a most puzzling
dilemma. Either the Hertling govern-
ment must acknowledge the state of
peace and thereby tacitly agree to
the conditions of peace demanded by
Lefline and Trotzky before the Brest
Litovsk conferences were dissolved,
or he aust send an army into Russia
to hold the conquered. territory and
to attempt to whip the passive Rus-
sians into a state of submission.
Should such an attack be made,
Lenine will then be in position to say
to his people, "I have done my best.
The Germans refused the only kind
of peace that would be honorable and
just. Now, it is up to you. Your very
life, . youjr national existence is at
stake." And, if appealed to in such
fashion, there is little doubt that the
formerly faltering Slavs will turn in
all the fury of a hitherto peaceful
body aroused by the most despicable
acts of treachery and brutality and
will struggle gamely to force the Hun
invaders from their soil.
To this country the developments
of the Russian revolution have seemed
to be mere turmoil with no settlement
in sight, a state of turbulence that
was leading to no good conclusion.
We have been suspicious of the Bol-
sheviki program and of the men sup-
porting it. Possibly, however, our
suspicions were entirely the result
of the lack of power to comprehend,
Of the confusion due to a total dif-
ference in the trend of thought. At
the present writing it seems more
than likely that Russia, with her vast
resources, her mighty potentialities,
will finally rise victorious over the
untoward conditions that have held
her bound and ultimately will render
to the Allies the most material assist-
FORMAL OR INFORMAL?
The Glee and Mandolin clubs will
have the opportunity Wednesday
night of manifesting their adherence
or opposition to the recently inaugur-
,fted pracltaie of wearing informal
attire at campus entertainments.
This custom is a wholesome one
and thoroughly in keeping with other
war economy measures. Its success or
failure on the campus must necessari-
ly depend on the attitude with which
the representative organizations view
it. If the Glee and Mandolin clubs
adopt it and appear in informal clothes
it will be a forward step toward a still
more democratic and self-sacrificing
With the musical clubs lies the
power to support or oppose; the cam-
pus awaits their decision.
The Glee and Mandolin clubs plac-
ard their concert withi"80 live Michi-
gan men, all of which are stars."
The word "which," we suppose refers
to horses, cows, or possibly the
throats of the singers, and the instru-
ments upon which the mandolin club
Hindenburg is rather crafty at that.
Perhaps he's sneaking out of Germany
for Paris before the inevitable crash.
But even being a pioneer has its draw-
"No punitive damages," says the
President. Payment for actual dam-
ages would keep the German nose to
the grindstone for some little time.
It would seem that the conflict be-
tween Dr. Garfield and the open shops'
has been won by the latter.
The fashion editors have never in-
timated that puttees enhanced the
beauty of shapeless calves.
At that we love the kaiser-love
him to death.

Exhibitions of drawings by Joseph
Pennell and Albert Seaford will fea-
ture the art display which will be
opened at 2 o'clock Wednesday after-
noon in Alumni Memorial hall under
the auspices of the Ann Arbor Art

San Francisco, and has just recently
sketched the various war industries

tural society of the University.

FORMER FRIEND OF KAISER
TO SPEAK HERE ON FEB. 26
""Prussian Memories," is the title of
a lecture to be given by Mr. Poultney
Bigelow gn Tuesday, Feb. 26. Mr.
Bigelow was an intimate friend of
Kaiser Wilhelm until 1896 and
his experiences in Germany previous
to the outbreak of the present war
has enabled him to speak thoroughly
on the subject.
Mr. Bigelow, while not on a regular
lecture tour, is scheduled to speak
twice in Buffalo before returning to
his home on the Hudson. The lecture
in Ann Arbor will be free.
Stylus Elects Jeannette Kiekintveld

offers a prize of $10 for the best short
story. All manuscripts must be in

Laden with well-worn books he ap-
proached the scowling salesman. He
hesitated, he faltered. He stuttered,
"Er-I would like to sell these books."
"A dollar-fifty," was on the lips of
the scowling salesman.
Reverently removing his hat, the
serious seeker after illumination re-
sumed, "I-er-desire a Holy Bible." An
expression of mingled admiration and
compassion blotted the scowl from
the mean salesman's map.
"Two dollars," he breathed.
"And now," said the one of sancti-
monious mien, "if you will give me a
sticker that I can print Semitics on,
I'll put it over the title." m s
