Prof. H. E. Riggs gave an interest-

work of some of the more prominent

His talk was limited mostly to
structural and transportation engi-

that came to engineers and showing
how failures such as the Quebec
bridge accident not only cost the en-
gineer his reputation, but caused mil-
lions of dollars loss and the loss of
the lives of 155 men.

A PREMIUM ON CLASS INTEREST
Almost every election of class of-
ficers on the campus in the past few
years has resulted in general dissat-
isfaction and thinly veiled charges of
peanut politics. Recrimination for
this state of affairs has been bandied
to and fro but it seems that the real
blame must eventually fall on the
electors rather than on the elected.
If there has been vote-swapping
and peanut politics in Michigan's class
elections, it is certainly a condition
to be regretted, but regret will not
remedy tthe situation. There must be
a. greater interest in the filling of
class offices by the great bulk of the
students. Meetings at which candi-
dates for these offices are nominated
are notoriously ill-attended. It is a
fact that a dozen votes will nine times
out of ten place a man in nomination.
When election time comes, less
than 30 per cent of the class appears
at the polls, thus in both cases mak-
ing the conditions most favorable for
railroading candidates into office. The
only way to break up government by
cliques is to have a large enough
electoratle to offset the qentralized
force of these smaller bodies.
If the Student council were to en-
act a resolution which recognized no
election or nomination as legal in
which a certain percentage of the
members of the class had not voted
and keeping such offices vacant until
candidates ;hod been so lnominated
and elected, much might be done to
make the path of the cheap politician
more difficult, if the percentage were
placed high enough.
In this way a premium would be
placed on the interest of the class.
If the class wanted organization, it
would be forced to earn it by turning
out a majority of its members.,at the
polls. If it can not stir up interest
it must suffer the penalty of being

SAYS PURPOSE OF PICTURES IS
EDUCATIONAL; SHOW WHAT
FOREIGN STUDENTS FACE.
Editor, The Michigan Daily:
As one closely associated with the
Univeristy Y. M. C. A. I wish to say
a few things concerning the matter of
the war posters.
In the first place, I do not deny
the fact that to the author of "War
Poster Displeases" these mural decc
orations of the social room of the Un-
iversity Y. M. C. A. do make that
portion of Lane hall look like a re-
cruiting station for the British army.
His article gives evidence of that.
However, I would like to point out
that W. F. S., '18, while a very clear
writer, is not a good observer nor
an interpreter of the methods of the
association. On the walls of the social
room hang not only posters from Eng-
land and Canada, but also very artis-
tic posters from France. These later
are inscribed in French, and that may
be the reason for their not being un-
derstood. There are also two small
pictures portraying the German sold-
ier, one as he enjoys a short furlough,
the other as he stands on sentinel
duty on a cold winter day.
The posters were secured by the
architect of the building, who wrote
to the different consuls for them. It
was impossible to get from the Ger-
man consul anything more than the
two small pictures.
The purpose of the posters is edu-
cational. They suggest a bit of con-
temporary life in Europe, and portray
what students in the warring countries
are called upon to face. A little"useof
the imagination, added to a little com-
mon sense, ought to make it clear that
the association has no other aim in
lowever, we are glad for the crit-
icism. It is at least straight-forward
and frank, and indicates no doubt
that the only way to remain neutral
these days is to say nothing, think
nothing, and do nothing.
We appreciate the criticism much
I more than the method used by a cer-
tain vandal who this week wantonly
attempted to destroy two of the post-
ers which are the property of the as-
sociation, aid in so doing committed
a state's prison offense. Unfortunate-
ly, or perhaps fortunately for him, he
did not sign his initials to his protest.
We venture to remark that the perpet-
rator of that act would be the last
one to volunteer to fight under his
own flag, and the first, if made a con-
script to run from the enemy.

ITALY HAS SUFFICIENT FOOD
THOUGH COAL SUPPLY IN THAT
COUNTRY IS SHORT.
Editor; The Michigan Daily:
In regard to the report from Wash-
ington of March 12, to the effect that
Italy is on her last legs, owing to
the food shortage, I beg to state that
the report is greatly exaggerated.
A letter received yesterday from a
relative in Italy states that coal sup-
ply is short, and sugar is also scarce,
but that all other food is plentiful,
though dear. They have two meatless
lays a week, and three days on which
the pastry shops are closed. Eggs
are plentiful now, and there is no lack
of fresh vegetables.
This relative quotes a letter from a
soldier at the front which states that
the treatment from superior officers
is -without reproach and the food is
plentiful and good. I am a subscriber
to the "Corriere Della Sera," an Italian
daily paper, and I find no mention of
a food shortage or any intention to
weaken toward Austria or Germany.
In fact, quite to the contrary.
