the coaches themselves are in a meas-

is that other considerations must en-
The campus has failed to turn out
for athletics as liberally in the past
few years as formerly. In view of this
fact it is but natural to enter into
the theory that the teamsas a con-
sequence will not be as good as would
otherwise be the case. This can be
seen in the number of candidates out
for track this season. Michigan for
years has not had what could be call-
ed a good track team. We have had a
few individual stars, athletes who
held their own in the fastest college
track company. We have had Smith,
Carroll, Ufer, Jansen, Bond, and a
few others. They have served as a
neucleus for a track team. But they
have been encircled by but few others
who were willing to devote a consid-
erable amount of time and effort to
Michigan, who felt before they had
gone far into the sport that their
names could never be placarded in
large letters as winners of a first place
in the intercollegiates.
There must be stars in any field.
There must be men who stand head
and shoulders above other men. But
there must also be those who quietly
struggle along without visible osten-
tation. Such make up the major por-
tion of almost any undertaking.
Climate is a wonderful thing. To
go to sleep to the drip of fast de-
parting snow, and be awakened by the
landlady yelling to "close that door,
do you want to freeze the whole
blooming house," is something not
given to the average citizen.

Do it this week--now. Excuses won'

Editor, The Michigan Daily:
Having had your editorial in this
morning's Daily brought to my atten-
tion, I beg, in meekness, to offer the
following facts, viz:
1. We, of the Glee and Mandolin
clubs own our evening clothes.
2. We do not wear flowers.
3. We walk.
In the light of the above I do not
feel that your charge of extravagance
is borne out.

WAR FOR GREED

That is what we are out to teach
the kaiser and it behooves us to win

Belgian mothers and children..
Nearly all graduates are entering
government service for the war before
their hands have warmed their di
pbomas. Those waiting, studying to
fit themselves for specialized war
work, or barredf from the front by
sex, are naturally impatient to get
into the fray in some manner; any
manner that will help.
The government,-has offered a way
to take that helpful part; a way open
to every man and womanstudent.
The way is to buy Thrift stamps,
growing into War Savings certificates.
The stamps can be bought for 25 cents
each. It is good business for thie buy-
er, but that is of no moment. What
does matter is that. every quarter
spent for a Thrift stamp helps to buy
munitions, food, clothing, transporta-
tion for-a fighting son of America. It
helps to carry along someone risking
his life to keep the war over there,
and end it so there will be no more
wars to demand toll of frightfulness.

all I can earn to pay my way through
