SHOWING SIGNS OF LIFE
This is a happy year at Michigan.
particularly in one respect. Things
are moving. Organizations which hav(
been asleep or apparently dead have
awakened to activity. The Mimes of
the Michigan Union roused from its
lethargic state seems to be having
something to say In the management
of the 1917 Union opera.
The latest organization to emerge
Phoenix-like from the ashes of inac-
tivity is the Michigan Boat club.
Though the Huron promises little in
the way of aquatic activity for more
than a month, the officers of the Boat
club have met to re-organize, and offer
the campus something tangible in the
nature of an organization for the en-
couragement of water sports.
We hore that the plans of re-cr-
ganization prove effective for we be-
lieve that there is a great deal of in-
terest in canoeing and river sports at
Michigan. Thli campus will welcome
a strong club organized in the in-
terests of aquatic sports.
From all accounts the Illini were
gracious hosts last Saturday.
We now have an "inn"'bor bird so-
ciety. Someone has suggested that
a squirrel club be organized.
Billy Sunday has just refused a
$2,000 a day job with a circus. Can
it be that the famous devil fighter is
losing his pep?
It might possibly be that The Michi-
gan Daily is simply a Maynard street
corporation which has no special sym-
pathy or regard for the will of the stu-
dent body which supports it. In this
case my assumption, that The Michi-
gan Daily has a peculiar right to my
sympathy and support, is wrong.
I spoke above of the normal man and
is prejudices. If you, Mr. managing
editor, have any special desire to favor
the British people, as it would seem
from the columns of The Daily, I, for
one, do not. If I could not avoid
imposing my fond fancies on you, or
noon the student body, were I ian-
aging editor of The Micihgan Daily,
I should acknowledge my incom-
petency for the position and resign.
Witness the article in columns two
and three, page four of the issue of
The Daily for March 3, 1917. It is not
opnly poor selection of available news
because of its impertinence -to Michi-
gan students and its pitiful literary
rank, but it is, obviously, silly bias.
And, now, I wish this point to stand
out from the rest of my argument.
You, as managing editor of The Mich-
igan Daily, in spite of the fact that
the student body of the University of
Michigan has explicitly, by referen-
dum, repudiated compulsory military
training, and thereby disfavoring mili-
tary training in general, persist in
your policy of ignoring and overrid-
ing the will of the student body, as
thus expressed. It is high time that
your position be defined. Mr. man-
aging editor, what is your answer to

University Senate voted to transmit
to the Regents a plan for establishing
compulsory military training at Michi-
gan beginning with the academic year
1910-1917. On Nov. 30, 1915, a student
referendum on the question of com-
pulsory training was held. In this ref-
erendum, 1,040 voted in favor of es-
tablishing compulsory training, and
932 voted against it. The Regents re-
cently provided for the adoption of a
system of voluntary training as pro-
vided for in war orders number 48.
The Daily has urged students to en-
roll in the courses in military science,
provided for by the action of the Reg-
ents, and in the military drill which

Editor, The Michigan Daily:
Editor, The Michigan Daily:
I wish to draw the attention of the
students of the University to the edi-
torial policy of The Michigan Daily.
And while doing so, I wish to ask
you, Mr. managing editor, some ques-
Granted that every normal man has
his prejudices, do you believe that he
has a right to impose them upon
others? Do you think that as manag-
ing editor of The Michigan Daily you
have the right to override the will of
the student body of the University at
large? Do you think that the dig-
nities, the sentiments, the purposes of
the student body should be tacitly
scorned in the columns of The Daily?
Do you think that repressing news un-
favorable to your prejudices, and
printing, in the main, only such news
stories as will strengthen your point
is fair dealing? Even if you think so,
what will the student body have to1
say? Or does the student body have
In view of the fact that there has
lately been appearing in your paper
a series of articles purporting to fur-
nish the student body and other read-
ers information on India, but which
in fact are unfounded charges against
the British empire, prompted by per-
sonal bias and malice, the writer, a
British. subject-not of English ex-
traction, but a native of the island of
Cyprus--takes this opportunity to file
a protest against the continuation of
an education to their children for the
first time; they liberated the people of
Cyprus from the tyranny of the Turk
and gave them a chance to work out
their own salvation, with assurances
that their lives and property would
be respected and protected, a thing
unknown in Cyprus for centuries prior
to the advent of British rule; and, as
Mrs. Barbour so excellently stated, the
English brought the Hindus out of
barbarism and oppression into the
light of civilization and personal lib-
There can be no doubt that famines
similar to the ones complained of, ex-
isted in India prior to the advent of
British rule. The British having
brought the Hindus into contact with
civilization and having opened up the
country to international trade, the in-
herently lazy Hindus found it more
difficult to get along.
Mr. Hardikar in his naive and
puerile attempts to heap opprobrium
upon the British people, furnishes us
with quotations that constitute his
own refutation. To quote him: "Fam-,
ines in India are not due to the lack
of food supply. Enough food has al-
ways been grown in India to feed the
population. But the people are so re-
sourceless, so absolutely unrepared
(we might add, unprepared be 'use of
their inherent laziness and shiftless-
ness), that when crops do fail, they
are unable to buy from any neighbor-
ing province which may have a rich
harvest. It is the poverty of the peo-
ple that brings on the famines." Nay,
it is the laziness of the people, and
their preference for alms rather than
work that are the causes for these
The writer of this letter being him-
self an Oriental, knows the spirit of
laziness pervading all Oriental peo-
ple. The typical Oriental is not prone
to work unless he is prodded on by
famine; and if he can beg alms, why,
so much the better. This is the rea-
son why the farther east a tourist
goes, the more beggars he encounters;
and vwhen he reaches India he finds
a great many more there than in any
other Oriental country. The Oriental's
fatalistic doctrines and superstitions
-the anticipation of having 72,000
women and 70,000 servants apiece,
and the enjoyment of delectable mor-
sels of food and other sensuous pleas-
ures immediately upon his demise,
make his desire of work still less and
increase his chances of death by fam-
ine still more. These and not British
rule are the causes of the periodic
famines in India complained of.

If British rule in England's colonies
and dependencies were oppressive,
tyrannical, and generally detrimental
to the welfare of the governed, the
writer of this letter as a native of the
island of Cyprus would be among the
first to take up arms against the op-
pressers, with a view to throwing off
the foreign yoke. But as a matter of
fact there is practically nothing to
complain of British rule; hence the
general contentment of the people so
