The time is ripe now for the young-

or Daily, and class activities call for
- men all the time. The older, men who

Michigan is calling to the younger
as men. Sophomores are taking the plac-

to help them, in order that Michigan

ek DEATH PENALTY FOR SPIES
id On March 11, nearly one year after
er the United States entered the war, a
-bill was introduced in the house to
provide the death penalty for convict-
ed spies. We may assume that during
the year the business of spying could
be carried on with comparatively lit-
tle danger to one's neck. Of course
- the spy took a chance of being intern-
ed at some southern watering place,
and every one knows that the possi-
W bility of such a fate would be a power-
ful deterrent on the activities of a
s German agent.
Congressman James, who introduced
o the death penalty bill, apparently
thinks otherwise. We surmise, how-
a ever, that he has not consulted the
civil rights bureau or the American
n union against militarism. May it not
r be possible that he has failed to give
e. due regard to the principles of hu-
it manitarianism and personal liberty?
X- Doubtless it has already been dis-
is covered in certain quarters that the
- execution of a German spy cannotbe
or squared with these principles. The
spy may have been the means of caus-
r ing the death of American soldiers;
i- nevertheless we, must be careful not
ly to lower our moral plane, we must be
es on our guard against militarism.
se But if congress fails to pass the
it James bill we suggest the following
ias an appropriate national motto:
Better that 99 American soldiers lose
es their lives than that one German spy
be unduly punished. - Chicago Tri-
