The Daily has been censured lately
as being too free in its criticism of
campus affairs. It has been accused
of not being squarely behind such un-
dertakings as the Union opera, the
basketball team, or the R. 0. T. C.
These organizations could not be ab-
solutely perfect, point out the accus-
ers, and it is The Daily's duty to ree-
ognize the fact and stand back of them
The Daily has made mistakes this
year, as have all other bodies whose
scope is more or less broad; but The
Daily feels that its stand in the above
points is not a mistake.
It is a poor kind of loyalty that
would not point out weaknesses for the
sake of )improvement. To say that
everything is perfect, when in reality
it is far from such,' would be worse
for any organization-than the severest
sort of criticism'. A teacher does not
teach by overlooking weak points. A
football coach does not tell his teaix
that it is the best in the world, when
it loses a game, or between the halves.
A business man does not run his bus-
iness by ignoring its faults. It is
only by finding the faults, seeking out
the weak points and trying its best to
improve them, that progress is made.
A newspaper can please some of the
people all the time, but can never
hope to please all its readers on all
occasions. It is impossible to progress
in any public undertaking without be-
ing criticised. Those who would do so
are urged to stay in bed.
Far be it from The Daily to believe
in continually criticising, if by that is
meant merely finding fault. But it
does, and always has, believed in in-
telligent criticism-in criticism that
will be of some help, that will cause
Every worthy cause on the campus

Daily, and it is only through showing
its loyalty by offering suggestions of
improvement that The Daily feels it

The Hun leaders are now telling
their people that grave insubordina-

camps. If you -call the desire of some
hundreds of thousands to growl a bit

ation, then we have it in abundance.
We have at last observed a use for

And the Triangle Turned Over in h
Pavement of the Arch
The ambitions candidate for B. S.
of M. E. was studying for a blue book
on the train into Detroit. Yes, he was;
there were a number of witnesses.
And the nice old lady who shared the
seat wanted to know what he was

The Ann Arbor avatar of the De-
troit News remarks that no self-re-
specting young woman has any busi-
ness to marry a man until she is
able to support him in the styje to,
which he is accustomed. We'd agree
if it weren't for the adjective. A self-
respecting young woman would be ex-
ceedingly likely to have moral scruples
against supporting a man in the style
to which he has been accustomed.

Edged In By Gargoyle Propagandists
We asked the newly appointed cub
how it seemed to be on the staff of the
G. M. N. He said he hadn't realized
that the official ranks had been so de-
pleted by this here war.
Terrifying quiet enveloped the
white-haired man as he sat in his
desk in one of those latest of spring
quiets which fit the figure so well, cut-
ting a little at the waist. It was plain,
almost unadorned, that something was
going to happen. Solemnly he raised
his hand above the pile of sky-blue
phamplets before him and spoke in
the voice of doom.
"They shall not pass," he said.

As a part of their food saving pro-
gram, a number of house wives are
continuing to decrease their milk pur-
chases, while at the same time reports
are being made daily of a surplus of
milk in many parts of the state.
"Milk is a food which can be used
without stint, and is cheaper at pre-
vailing city prices than butter or
eggs," said Dr. Mary Anderson, of
the extension department of Michigan
Agricultural college, in commenting
on the situation.
"Every growing child should have
at lastonequart of fresh milk daily,"
she said, "for it is especially essential,
because of its high food value and
mineral salt value, in building up the
framework of every .growin; child.
"Liberal use of milk at -this time, in
addition to being economical in the
home, will help lessen our milk sur-
plus and decrease the need for wheat
and other foods which we must share
with our Allies."
RIHOES APPOINTiMENTS TO BE
No more Rhodes scholarship ap-
pointments will be made for the pres-
ent, according -to a statement receiv-
ed by Pres. Harry B. Hutchins, for th
year 1916-17, though qualifying ex-
aminations wil continue to be given.
The report states that "throughout the
past academic year the war has in-
terfered increasingly with the scholar-
ships. At the close of the year 1916-
17, the American scholars holding
scholarships were barely affected but
on the entry of the UniteStates into
the war, the difference between Amer-
ican and colonial scholars naturally
eeased to exist.
"Largely as a consequence of the
new situation thus created the trustees
have decided to postpone for the pres-
ent all future elections to the schol-
arship. This will not, however, inter-
fere with the annual qualifying ex-

of giving scholars leave of absence
