Now and then someone comes forth
with the saying that he admires a
certain person because that person
never worries. To follow the career
of an unworried person would be most
interesting, for, without doubt, such
a character never lived. The man
whom we thing of as never troubled,
is, but carefully conceals the external
1signs of it. One of the high roads to
success is worry. Self complacency is
a sign of decay. The man who is nev-
er unduly troubled may well be an
emotional slacker. He lacks one of
the greatest spurs to action. To wor-
ry leads to thinking, and to think is
to progress.
The same rule applies to nations.
America has always been known for
her self complacency. Before the -na-
tion entered the war it was common
talk that if we were invaded we would
arise and push the enemy into the
sea. That sentiment is too commonly
reflected today. We still refuse to be-
come excited about the war. We are
much less efficient in many ways on
our war basis than other nations. If
the Allies had depended upon the Un-
ited States to stop the great German
drive, the Teutons would probably
have been in,Paris today. The situ-
ation at Washington shows the gen-
eral tendency to be complacent.
Where are our airplanes promised to
the Allies? They are still in the
minds of the aircraft board.
IfnAmerica istordefeat Germany we
must worry. National progress is oft-
en dependent upon fear. The Romans
were much more dangerous in the
days when they were starting upon
the conquest of the world, than they
were in the days of glory during the
latter part of the empire. At first
they worried and progressed. When
they became powerful theyslackened
their attempts at perfection. Self
satisfaction is characteristic of the
rut. If America is to get out of the
rut which many years of peace have
worn in the minds of her people, she
must try the old psychological stim-
ulus-worry. Then and only then can-
she become nationally efficient.

She said, "The R. 0. T. C. boys
In khaki look so sweet,
Why is it that such lots of
Wear cits upon the street?"


Election of officers of the Women's

"Ah," said the ambitionless stude,
"Spring is really here. Just listen to
those woodpeckers. I don't remember
ever hearing them on the campus be-

Why Did We Start Anything Like This
Cary:-I note that you are working
for a Ph.D. in nomenclature research.
May I add to your already well-begun
store of knowledge that on another
page of the same students' directory
appear a-Miss Hatch and a Mr. Hatch-
er? X.Y.Z.
Some newly-weds have moved into
our neighborhood. The newness is
enough to make them obnoxious to
bluebook-pestered mortals, but that
isn't all. They're musically inclined,
and the honeymoon blisses come- purl-
ing forth into the cold world in duet
form. Every night when we're burn-
ing the midnight-(just this once we
hope our profs are readirrg this)-
why, they begin to mingle the manly
mellow baritone and the glorious lilt-
ing soprano. Last night the harmony
was so close that it sounded as if
they were standing right under our.
window. We looked out and by Jove
they were. We're not naturally mur-
derous but we will say this: If our
two-volume edition of Bryce's "Amer-
ican Commonwealth" hadn't cost so
much good lucre, one of those cats
would have had a sprained whisker
this morning.
The Reared On The Campus with

A British sailor brought up on a

hath any like two women? .

Country's Workmen Quick In Respond-
ing to Call; Volunteers Given
Two undred and fifty thousand
men have signed up for work in the,
shipyards of the country, according to
the Emergency Fleet News, a paper
published every week by the govern-
ment in the interests of the shipping
"The groundwork is nowf laid for
America's best efforts against the sub-
marine," says the paper. "The men
are enrolled and ready. American
workmen have demonstrated their
loyalty in a manner that cannot be
misunderstood or doubted. When the
call for shipbuilders went forth, the
program for assembling the men
where needed, was comparatively in-
definite and perhaps a bit vague. It
was impossible to give the worker de--
finite information as to what might be
expected of him. An appeal was made;
to his patriotism. That was stifficient.
"Postcards which the volunteers
were asked to sign began to flow into
the office of the Emergency Fleet cor-
poration by the thousands. A bat-
tery of clerks was kept busy. The
names were indexed and every vo -
unteer was sent a badge and an ho#-
orary certificate of enrollment signed,
by Edward N. Hurley, a tangible re-
cognition of the signer's spirit of pa-
triotism and sacrifice.
"The inrush of postcards developed
into a veritable avalanche. Mail bags
filled to the brim were delivered each
day. The figures mounted quickly,
and in the national enrollment week,

Senior Engineers Sail for France
Donald M. Drake, '1SE, and Robert
A. Kimberley, '18E, recently sailed for
Fr'ance with a small group of officers
of the sanitary corps of the army, ac-
cording to a letter just received by the
former's father, Prof. R. E. Drake, of
the Dental college.
Kimberley and Drake were among
the engineers who entered the sani-
tary service of the army on Feb. 27.
The other men, who left at that time,
are in Washington, taking a short
training course at the Walter Reed
army hospital.
