THE CONTRIBUTION OF T-IE
When the President called for men to
enter the nation's service there were no
specifications as to the capital, that is,
the financial circumstances, of those who
should respond. The draft fell upon
rich and poor alike. In Pasadena's con-
tingent $1o0,000,ooo in the way of money
was represented; side by side with these
sons of wealth were those whose wealth
was summed in the clothes they wore.
The value of these men to the army was
their physical endurance, amenability
to discipline, courage, and initiative un-
der unforeseen conditions. Their poten-
tial value to the nation is not to be
reckoned in terms of money, which is
of use only to express contrasts. A
nation's assets are its citizens, especially
those who have talent and opportunity
to develop themselves in its behalf. Here
are God only knows how many "mute,
inglorious Miltons," embryo scientists,
statesmen, physicians, financiers, ready
or preparing to give the world their
best, who have instead been sacrificed
When we remember that between 6,-
ooo And 7,ooo Michigan university men
are in the United States service in one
capacity or another; that Harvard's con-
tribution is 5,6ooo; and that Yale's 4,800,
are divided in the three great army di-
visions, we see what an enormous:
amount of invested capital these three
universities alone, irrespective of the 500
yodd colleges and universities in the
country at large, have put at the nation's
service. It is estitnated that it costs
about $5,000 to put a boy through the
grades and take him to commencement
day in college. Nit counting the young
man's future possibilities, the father who
sees his son put on khaki may well
realize the value of the gift he offers his
