(From the news service of the Nation-
al Committee of Patriotic So-
cieties, Washington, D. C.)
A plan to observe April 6, the first
anniversary of American's entry into
the war as "National Win the War
Day" has been worked out by the Na-
tional Committee of Patriotic societ-
A statement sent out to the presi-
dents of fifty national patriotic organ-
izations, to cabinet members and
other government officials, and to col-
lege presidents, says:
"At the beginning of our sec-
and year in the great war it is fitting
thathwe have a national consecration
to Abe task remaining before uts. Be-
cause of numerous workless days dur-
ing the past winter it is not advisable
that the occasion should be made a
holiday, but in every factory, store,
mine, school and on every farm there
should be a brief period during the
day where everyone who is loyal to
the flag shouldstand up and be count-
ed. Flags should everywhere be un-
furled. At 12 o'clock noon factory
whistles and church bells should send
forth a volume of sound that will
reach Berlin. Every band in the
country will then play the Star
Spangled Banner,' while people stand
at attention. In the evening in the
churches, halls and theaters the peo-
ple can gather for meetings of inspir-
ation. Regiments of the national arm
may parade in cities near the canton-
"The 'winter of our discontent' with
its coalless days and congested rail-
road and other minor annoyances is
past. ''he spring with its promise of
abundant crops and increased indus-
trial production is here. Now is the
time for America's home army to mob-
ilize and thus bring courage to our
boys in the trencpes and cantonments,
and depression to our enemies. Let
Germany feel that this is a popular
war in America. The effect of having
the nation a unit in patriotic thought
on this day cannot.be over estimated.
It will bring renewed courage and
hope to our brave Allies.
"In every college there should be
special patriotic * exercises at which
messages from students and alumni
in the nation's service may be read,
instruction as to how every college
student can do his part to win the
war can be given, and a pledge of al-
legiance to the flag and to the cause
of the war repeated by all. The col-
leges of America have responded -no-
bly to the call to arms. On April 6
faculties and students should let their
brothers in the field know that they
are with them in spirit and in effort.

March 12 and 13 In the House of Rep-
resentatives in Lansing.
Miss Helen Frazer, one of the best
known war workers of England, will
be the principal speaker at this con-
ference. She will lecture upon "Wo-
men's Part in the War," with particu-
lar reference to the "Woman on the
Land" movement which has gained.
such momentum in England and on
the continent. The chief object of her
lecture so far as increased food sup-
ply is concerned is to recruit women
in large numbers to engage in the
actual labor of planting, cultivating,
and harvesting Michigan crops.
Women to Unite in General Elections
A precedent will be established this
year wheng the women's campus organ-
izations hold a genral election, in-
stead of several separate ones. The
Y. W. C. A., Athletic association, and
the Women's league will have a com-
mon election day and place for choos-
ing their respective officers. The pres-
ident of the Y. W. C. A. has appointed
her nominating committee, and the
names of the nominees will be an-
nounced next week. The election will
be April 2.

One time we went to a French lec-
ture. It wasn't because we were
afraid of being accused of pro-Ger-
manism and it certainly wasn't be-1
cause we knew anything about
French. But there is something about
the limpid flow of the Romance tong-
ue that soothes the spirit and so pret-
ty soon we were tying our counten-
.ance in all kinds of true-lovers' knots
and trying to look appreciative and in-
telligent like a French poodle, by-and-
by the professor came to a rhetorical
pause, whatever that is, and the long-
haired villian across the aisle from
whom we had been taking our cue
raised his hand. Probably he was go-
ing to scratch his ear or something
but that possibility occurred to us too
late. We had cultivated the imitative
impulse to good purpose and we let
out a clap that sounded like Jove
dropping his hammer or Casey at
the bat. During the sultry, oppressive
silence which followed we had time
to wonder which disaster to French
arms we had applauded. In fact,
we've wondered off and on ever since.:
Mr. Roosevelt's latest bit of misfor-
tune is not calculated to win him
votes in 1920. Or is it?
Spring might be defined as that
phenomenon looked forward to in
January, hoped for in February, eag-
erly sought for in March, cussed about
in April, partly prevalent in May, and'
found during that part of June not
eclipsed by summer.

The. Literary Critic Says
Cavalry of the Clouds
(By Captain Alan Bott, Royal Flying
Although our bookshelves are
crowded with war stories by various
famous fighters, we have heard almost
nothing from the aviators. And if we
are to judge from Capt. Bott'' book,
this cannot be because that branch of
the service is any less interesting, for
his enthusiastic style would lead us to
believe that nothing in the world could
be as amusing as flitting about above
Boche territory or crawling on the
rigging of one's plane to beat out a
fire which had started there. He re-
fers to the endurance of the German
machines as "an annoying habit of
theirs," and draws ludicrous pictures
of himself "wobbling and side-slip-
ping," to use his own phraseology,
out of the srange of the anti-aircraft
Capt. Bott is happily optimistic con-
cerning the superiority of the British
Plying Corps, for, although he pays
high tribute to the enemy's air ser-
vice, he points out that the greater
part of the fighting has been behind
the German lines.
