ALL BODY AND NO FEET
ist now the situation in America
ely resembles that of a baby with
overgrown body and no feet to
k on. We have millions of citizens
lable for our army, plants with
mous resources for turning out
munitions of war, and land to raise
t supplies of foodstuffs. These
gs make up the body of the in-
American. fighting machine. We

feet to carry, over two thousand

ly of these we can do nothing.
rhaps one of the reasons that
nany has been able to prosecute
war so long is because she has a
network of railroads, available

SOME THOUGHTS ON STATE
Strolling up State street, one recent
March afternoon, The Alumnus saw
the street, so famous to generations
of Michigan's students, in a new light.
Actually the illumination was the
slanting sun of an early spring after-
noon, but it emphasized the shadows
and threw the large bulk of the new
Union with its tower, which has
come to dominate that part of Ann
Arbor, into strong relief.
Already one could visualize what
State street is to become within a few
years-a spacious avenue flanked by
impressive buildings, lacking perhaps
any large pretense at architectural
unity, but attaining something finer
through the broad spaces and the con-
cealments and revelations of the elm
trees which line it for so many
blocks. One remembers a bit of stu-
dent irreverance, buried in forgotten
files of a prehistoric Wrinkle
"Sing a song of State street-
Shucks t'aint worth a song!"
and contrasts it with what is prom-
ised in the near future, when practi-
cally the three or four remaining old
frame houses and West hall are gone
and the new Congregational church,
the Betsy Barbour dormitory, -the
Catholic Student Guild house, and
the new fraternity houses which are
promised soon, will make State street
one of those gracious collegiate ave-
nues to be long remembered-by visit-
ors, and fondly recalled by .graduates.

UPHOLDS SALES WORK
STUDENT REPLIES TO ARTICLE
CLAIMING FEW STUDENTS
MAKE SUCCESSES ,
Editor, The Michigan Daily:
Judging from my own experiences
during spring vacation, the general
impression conveyed by Mr. Kemble's
communication which appeared in The
Daily just before vacation is a great
injustice to the sales comnpanies
which are recruiting students for sum-
I made 'a through investigation of
the situation before deciding to take
up selling books, and did not detect
one instance of "tricky methods" al-
luded to in Mr. Kemble's letter
Questions Crooked Methods
It is absolutely beyond my vision
to see how any company could ex-
pect to engage in a profitable business
for any length of time by using the
''crooked methods" that Mr. Kemble
The community I canvassed is not
far from Ann Arbor. Let me state
right here that I was not only ex-
tremely successful from the financial
standpoint, but also that I gained a
valuable experience in the short time
that the University could not teach
I learned also that the attitude of
the general public was one of respect
for the student who has "red blood"
enough in his veins to take up such
work, and I did not meet one case
where I was not treated in a hospita-
Financial Success Possible
I do not believe that only a " chosen
few" are inv'ested- with powers of
salesmanship, but I am convinced that
any student who gives his proposition
a fair trial and when I say "fair trial"
I do not mean a "hasty conclusion"
can with a knowledge of the good
qualities of the article he is selling,
make as good a financial success as
in any other line of work.
It is, of course, necessary that the
students have supreme confilence in
tpe article he is selling and in the
company in that stands behind him.
Such articles as Mr. Kemble's raises
doubt in the mind of the student
which is dangerous to his success.
Out of justice to the companies who
are doing a legitimate business as well
as to the students, I believe that ac-
tion should be taken at once by the
employment bureaus of the "Y" and
Union to investigate the contracts and
propositions of these companies.

ENGLISH DISCUSS PLANS id
FOR JEWISH UNIVERSITY
Plans for a large Jewish university
in Jerusalem situated on the Mount
of 014ves have been under discussion
for some time in England. The col-
lection of the necessary funds is now
being started by the men in charge.
When situated in its proposed site,
the university will occupy the highest
point in the hills around Jerusalem,
and will look down on one side upon
the Holy City and the area where the
temple once stood. On the other lies
the wilderness of Judea, which de-
cends to the valley of 'the Jordan
river and the Dead Sea.
