A Particular Place

FRANK C, BOLICH Prop,
Efforts made during the last week
to arouse interest on the campus in
military training have aroused a great
deal of metaphysical discussion with
regard to the ethics of war, who wants
war between the United States and
some other power and what are the
best methods of prevention of such
As it has been said in these col-
umns and in columns of countless
other publications, war is still in ex-
istence and doubtless will be for some
time to come. It has also been said
that the United States of America is
very near to war. It is useless to
dilate upon the necessity or non-ne-
cessity of our position. The fact re-
mains that we are nearer.to a serious
conflict than we have been for many
years. And then there is the bromidic
but disheartening fact that the condi-
tion of our military and naval forces
is such that an upstart brigand at
the head of a gang of roustabouts can
raid our border towns and kill our
citizens with impunity.
Inasmuch as the country is waiting
hourly for news of the "overt act"
which will have but one result, how
can one consistently juggle with ab-
stractions which have no bearing on
the point at issue?
Michigan students are once more
urged to begin to prepare themselves
for a tragic situation which may be
nearer than we realize.
A group of public-spirited students
and faculty members are sacrificing
time and patience to give of the mili-
tary experience which they possess.
They have received a small response,
but one that does no credit to the
University of Michigan. It is our duty
to show the same spirit that is so ap-
parent in the eastern institutions.
This is not jingoism. It is what we
believe to be unadorned, common
sense. Our country may momentarily
be precipitated into the most terrible
struggle the world has ever known.
Right or wrong, sensible or insane,
necessary or unnecessary, that is the
situation, ethics and metaphysics not-
withstanding. Why shouldn't we do
something to meet the situation?
Michigan men can do their share
by reporting every Wednesday night
at Waterman gymnasium for two
hours of drill.
Let's stop arguing and learn the
meaning of "right oblique."
Senior Girls to Entertain Sophomore
Women -Headline. According to this
the Graduate school must be the
fountain of youth.
Mr. Franck says that Professor
Cooley made him a vagabond. We
now have the famous quartet of vices'
-wine, women, song, and sociology.'
Signing up for the course in mili-!
tary training doesn't necessarily mean
that one has lost interest in life.
Prospective writers for the Comedyt
club are ordered to have their plots
ready for early inspection. It would
be interesting to know just how thicki
such plots should be.,
Among the speakers at the State
student volunteer convention to be
held here Feb. 23 to 25, are three
women widely known as platform
Mrs. Helen Barratt Montgomery, of
Rochester, N. Y, is a particularly gift-
ed woman, has traveled all over the
world, and is prominent as an author
and Christian stateswoman. Mrs.
Reed R. McClure, of New York, is one
of the traveling secretaries of the stu-
dent volunteer movement. She is call-
ed the "Prayer Woman of India," hav-
ing spent many years in that country,
where her strong personality and radi-
ant spirit exerted great influence.
Mrs. Mary Carr Curtis, of Malaysia,
now student secretary of the Metho-
dist church, will be remembered by
Michigan women who attended the
Lake Geneva conference last summer
as one of those who gave much of her
time to personal conference with the
J. Lovell Murray, educational secre-
tary of the volunteer movement, told
the local committee that inMrs. Mont-
gomery and Mrs. McClure they had
enough strong leaders for any confer-
ence. Mr. Murray may be unable to be
in Ann Arbor for the convention, but
his place will be filled by one of the
other national secretaries, probably
Mr. Fennel P. Turner.
Students, faculty members, and
townspeople who expect to attend the
meetings of the conference are asked
to sign at Lane hall between 3 and 6
o'clock Friday afternoon, and receive
delegates' badges. The first session
of the conference is scheduled for 7
o'clock Friday evening.
7ard Is HeP to
Weather 's Anties
I did not think because the walks
were filled with melting slush, and the
boulevard , was occupied by people
talking mush, and just because the sun
was out and all the sky was clear, that
winter now was over and the gladsome
spring was here.d
Let me tell you gentle readers, that
there's cold enough in store. There's
icy sheets and frost-bit ears which
you may yet deplore. I'm glad I
didn't sell my skates, nor smash my
trusty bob, nor buy the latest book-
let on the newest serve and lob.
And I will wear my heavy coat, as
I am loath to do, nor dream of sun-lit
Huron and the gliding green canoe,
nor call a number on the phone to
speak of Sunday walks, but make the
parlor fire-side the scene of further
For February is only half-way spent,
as you will quickly find, and March is
marching on its way with cold and bit-
ter wind. Then follows longed-for
April precursor of May's flowers. (And
I shall rhyme this latter line, of
course, with ancient "showers.")
So do not think the southern wind
which blew so soft and sweet, was
going to be insurance 'gainst a pair of
tingling feet. The Robin and the Violet
and Bock must yet appear, ere you
can bring me to believe that gladsome
spring is here.
SENIOR LAWS TO GIVE PARTY
ON WASHINGTON'S BIRTHDAY
The second largest social event of
the year in the Law school will take

given by the senior law class. It will

Mr. Robert Pyle, president of one
of the largest rose growing concerns
in the country will deliver an illus-
trated lecture at 4:15 o'clock this aft-
ernoon in the auditorium of the

Fisher's orchestra will furnish the
music. This dance will take the place
of a sleighride planned for this date.
The increased enrollment in the
chemistry 2E class has necessitated
the division of the 10 o'clock quiz sec-
tion into two sections, both of which
will meet at the same time. Last year's
enrollment was 170, but the number
for this semester jumped to 209. Mr.
Jenkins is to have charge of the new
section, meeting at 10 o'clock Mon-
days and Fridays, the laboratory
periods being Wednesday afternoons
and Saturday mornings.
A shortage of platinum wire is being
felt in the chemical engineering
classes and some of the tests for
metals have had to be dropped.
Manganese and copper solutions can
no longer be tested by the use of plati-
num wire and borax beads are now
ancient history in the laboratory.
Practically all of the marketable
platinum was imported from Russia
and during this stage of the war it is
impossible to ship any to the United
States. The price has tripled and is
still rising so there is little possibil-
ity of the University securing a new
