NEEDLESS LOSS OF LIFE
The Huron river may be the Michi-
gan students' best friend. Left un-
garded, it becomes his treacherous
enemy. Coroners' records show that
many students have been drowned
while skating on the. Huron. Yet
this danger has been treated with
indifference. At least one drowning
every winter, as the Korn tragedy a
year ago, has come to be taken as a
matter of course. It is about time
to stop this criminal negligence.
The president of the Civic associa-
tion is interested. Officials of the
Eastern Michigan Edison Co., are will-
ing to co-operate. The Student coun-
cil will investigate. But there must
be immediate and concerted action,.
Possibly a joint committee could most
effectually carry out the work of mak-
ing the river safe. The work should
begin at once.
Fifty dollars is a small sum when
measured by the loss of a human life.
Don't forget to take your opera
glasses to watch the basketball games
in the new gym.
Some college men leave for the
front to enter the ambulance service
while others remain to fight it out
It would seem that the suffragists
are trying to make a matinee idol
out of PresidentWilson.
Would a comparison, of the figures
on the vote on military training last
year and the number of students who
have responded to President Hutchins'
call for students interested in the new
military curriculum reveal anything
on the question of natiorl defense?
