It is time for all p'ersons to consider'
themselves of importance in the world
of affairs. No matter how infinitesi-
mal the service which you are able to
render, it will contribute to the sum
total which is necessary for the salva-
tion of civilization. Every atom of
service to the common good which is
withheld when it could be given de-
creases to that extent the possibility
of rescuing mankind from impending
If you are unable to think beyond
your own immediate personal inter-
ests you are indeed a dwarf in so far
as intelligence is concerned. Every
person with any vitality whatsoever
must learn to expand continually the
terms in which he does his thinking.
If your thinking has progressed to the
group unit there is hope for you,
but not sufficiency. Pass on to the
city, the state and the nation in your
mental comprehension, in the field of
your intense human interest. If you
have achieved the feat of thinking in
terms of the nation you may be con-
sidered a person of consequence.
But to be in the vanguard of civil-
ization, to associate with the noblest
minds of the age, your intellectual
arena must comprise the whole world.
The time has long passed when the
individual could live entirely aunto
himself. The time is rapidly approach-
ing when no nation can be isolated.
To be a true patriot you must not only
be loyal to your country and every
comrade in your country, but you
must learn to think in planetary
terms, so that you can help humanity
solve its portentous problems.-Wash-
ington Daily.

ness of the cowbells. But we should
say this is too good an idea for Mich-

Editor, The Michigan Daily.:
It must be admitted that the night
of April 18 (Thursday) was very cold.
This was clearly evidenced by the
close contact between hats and heads
when the flags went by in the parade.
On Main street hardly a man touched
or lifted his hat; on State street a
negro standing in a group of R. 0.
T. C. men and. other students bared
his head first while the flag passed,
and the others continued to laugh and
smoke. The men can stand for five
minutes in the rain to sing the Yellow
and Blue, or cheer themselves hoarse
at the sight of a rolling pigskin, but
stand dumb and covered when the flag
goes by.
They stand thus when their former
mates are offering their lives for their
safety and still they can see the red
stripes and never quiver.
Our flag, then, is less than a pig-
skin, less than a college song? Mich-
igan spirit is big on the field., Why
must it be so insignificant, so utter-
ly lacking on the bigger field of our
country's spirit? The men who stood
covered were not worthy to buy or,
own bonds, for they would buy them
and own them purely as a four and
one-quarter percent investment. Take
your hat off when the flag passes or
you respect it no more, and insult
i1 just as much as the German who
Would trample it.

make much difference about the ease
with which Seine Majestat lies.

Wheat on the farms in the county
must be reported to the local war pre-

can be marketed immediately. This
action was decided upon at a meeting
of the war preparedness committee
yesterday at the city Y. M. C. A._
County Food Administrator A. D.
Groves was present, and presented
the request of the Federal Food Ad-
ministrator Prescott for a report, on
all wheat stored in the county, and
especially that which is being hoard-
ed. It was voted to request the school
district' committees to make reports
on all wheat remaining in their dis-
tricts, as this was thought to be the
most direct way of getting the desired

"American women are neglecting a
splendid opportunity for service,"
said Dean M. E. Cooley of the engin-
eering college, in commenting on the
need of engineering draftsmen and
designers. This need was emphasized
in a letter from the council of na-
tional defense, requesting him to put
it in touch with all engineering drafts-
men and designers possible, to the end
that more persons might be available
to work out the engineering and ship-
ping problems which the government
is facing today.
"Every woman who takes up the
work of tracing relieves one drafts-
man for the more important work of
his profession," said Dean Cooley. "It
is a wonderful opportunity that has
come to the women of this country,
if they will but avail themselves of it.
There are thousands of young women
who coul4 find employment in this
work, who would not only fink.it a
proposition that would insure them
good salaries, but would also relieve
engineering draftsme for more im-
portant work." "
Dean Cooley said that one year in
an engineering college by any high
school graduate would fit her for the
work. It would be necessary for her
to know something of geometry, ele-
mentary, descriptive geometry, and
mechanical drawing. Dean Cooley
said, "With the right high school pre-
paration, it ought not take a young
woman more than a semester's work
at the ouside, to fit herself for the
work. It requires comparatively lit-
tle study to fit them for a profession
that pays well, is a military need at
this time, and will offer a splendid
opportunity for the future."
