Editor, The Michigan Daily:
The communication headed "Asks
for Sound Reasoning," has- attracted
my attention. The writer states that
at the beginning of the European war,
"our conclusion was that those na-
tions were mad. We were reasoning
then." The writer infers then that we
are losing our reason because we are
considering war.. But are the two
cases analogous? Certainly not. We
could see no good reason for their war
but what about our present situation?
Germany by a decree of the imperial
government, has barred American
commerce from certain zones on the
high seas, murdered American citizens,
plotted an attack on the United States
by Japan and Mexico, and insulted us
in innumerable cases, one of which is
the retention of our ambassador in
We have lost our reason? We need
"sober deliberation?" No, no. We
have deliberated long and earnestly,
looked for loop-holes to keep out of
the war, and done everything in our
power to settle our disputes with Ger-
many. Any person who says that if
we enter the war, we have rushed into
It, is hopelessly ignorant of the phases
of the present crisis. Any man, who
today asserts that the United States
sias no cause to fight for, is a "senti-
mental pacifist." I should not term
such a man a traitor, but rather look
upon him as a person who is ignorant
of present international relations, and
who is not interested in our govern-
But the senators who killed the
"armed neutrality bill" were danger-
ously near the traitor line when they
thwarted the will of the government
of the United States of America and
when they used their power to em-
barrass their nation in the eyes of the
Let us then, the students of the Uni-
versity of Michigan, study the present
relations with Germany and the
causes of our present attitude and
then no Michigan man will try to
make us believe that we should delib-
erate longer and fail to fulfill our ob-
ligations to ourselves and the world.
If war comes, as we hope it does if
necessary to preserve the intregity and
sovereignty of the United States, let
us not have dissension and ignorance
in the universities of the nation as to
why we have entered.

Girls' Educational Club Meets Monthly
At a meeting held yesterday morn-
ing in the Cercle Francias rooms, the
Girls' Educational club voted to meet
only once a month for the remainder
of the year, instead of every two
weeks as has been the custom. The
meetings are to be held at the homes
of the members. The first of these
meetings is to be held Tuesday even-
ing, March 20.

number of talks will be given by fac-
ulty men and members of the society.

l Editor, The Michigan Daily:
The writer believes that such an
important question as the proposed
return to the conference should have
a thorough discussion and should be
voted upon by the campus. Thus far
in The Daily there has appeared but
one side, that being in favor of the
return. An article published in the
Inlander recently attacked the pro-
position, but it is probable that the
article did not reach as many readers
as the Daily does.
There is an impression on the cam-
pus that the football schedule for next
year was purposely made poor in ord-
er to influence sentiment to favor re-
turning to the conference. It is open-
ly charged in the Inlander that pro-
positions from Colgate, a school which
has at least as great a reputation as
the University of Detroit, were turn-
ed down by the board in control. If
these statements are the truth, th
campus is entitled to know them.
It is urged that the sentiment .on the
campus favors a return. The writer
doubts that statement. A majority
of those with whom he has talked,
favor staying out if we could secure
one more eastern game in addition to
those with Pennsylvania and Cornell.
n view of this attitude the writer sug-
gests that a vote be taken with re-
gard to the proposed return. He
would urge that a man be appointed to
conduct the argument in The Daily
for each side as was done three years
ago, and place a time limit on the dis-
cussion. In such a discussion we
could learn whether real effort was
made by the athletic office to secure
a good schedule for the coning fall.
We could find out the possibility of
getting eastern games. And above all,
we would get a real idea of what the
campus actually thought and not the
opinion of a few prominent men. There
ought to be no objection to such an
attitude on the part of the pro-con-
ference men for, if as they maintain,
sentiment is largely in favor of re-
turning, they would easily carry the
election. But if a majority on the
campus are opposed to a return, their
will certainly ought not to be dis-
The chief objection that the writer
sees to such a plan is that some un-
fortunate demonstration, such as oc-
curred here three years ago, might
sway sentiment of students without
regard to actual reasons for or against
returning. But the writer believes
that this could be avoided by proper
action on the part of the Student
council. And at all events, the stu-
dents are entitled to an expression of
opinion on this, the most radical
change in Michigan's athletic policy
since she left the conference.
