A MASS MEETING TO AROUSE
To many thinking men of our coun-
try it appears that nothing save a
miracle can keep the United States
from being forced to enter the present
war. The nation is confronted with
one of the gravest crises of its exist-
ence, for it is about to enter upon a
At Michigan little has been done to
aid the country in preparing for the
impending conflict, beyond the organ-
ization of two divisions of naval re-
serves, a batallion of infantVy, and ac-.
tive Red Cross work. Not only is
there lack of action, but there is lack
of thought. We don't know where we
stand. Some are arguing for prepared-
ness, and immediate entrance into the
war to defend our rights. Others are
urging that our country remain at
peace, drawing a contrast between the
bloody battle fields of Europe and an
idyllic, peaceful world state. Worst of
all, there are a great many who are
not arguing at all.-
Possibly a mass meeting as sug-
gested by a student in a thoughtful
communication . in yesterday's Daily
might focus attention upon the burn-
ing issue of the day. At present there
are too many of us at Michigan who
have not come to the real question of
the hour-how we may best serve our
country in the present grave crisis-
but are still arguing abstractly on the
respective merits and demerits of war
and peace, or not arguing at all. A
mass meeting with a program ar-
ranged not to call forth cheap jingo-
ism, or rah rah flag-waving, but to
arouse and promote careful thought,
and true patriotic feeling would be a
great thing for Michigan at the pres-

These boys come to Ann Arbor ex-
pressly at the invitation of the Univer-
sity and the entire student body is
obligated to do everything in its
power to make their visit both a
pleasing and memorable one.
First impressions count considerab-
ly more than they should. One is apt
to be guided by his first opinoins' con-
cerning something new to a far great-
er extent than his better and more
mature judgment dictates. Hence it
is up to Michigan and Michigan men
to do their utmost to show our visitors
real Michigan spirit. Lasting impres-
sions will be formulated during the
next few days and carried throughout
the state. These will probably have
great 'weight with friends back home.
Let us see that these reports are
favorable. An extra effort from all
concerned is expected the rest of the
week. Michigan wants these boys en-
rolled here next fall. We distinctly
do not want them buying one wa-
tickets next fall to Ithaca, N. Y., or
Champaign, Ill., or Madison, Wis.
These boys are ours.
