Kansas U. Studes
To Play Pool in
?Ilunicipal Hall
Lawrence, Kans., March 27.-Mu-
nicipal billiards are advocated by. fac-
ulty men as a solution of the pool hall
problem now confronting the Univer-
sity of Kansas. A bill to abolish pool
halls in Kansas college towns recent-
ly passed the state senate, but died in
the house. Coach Olcott expressed his
o inion that with a strict daily time
linit for individual players, well-man-
age municipal billiard halls would
less ,n the tendency for obnoxious loaf-
ing. One faculty member, when ques-
tioned as to his knowledge of the
situation, said, "Oh, yes, I'm an ex-
pert, all right. I play one game a

Kiefer collection relative to the estab-
lishment of a republic in Germany.

The Shuberts are sending "Alone
at Last" to the Whitney theater, Sat-
urday night, March 31. This musical
comedy is the work of Franz Lehar,
composer of "The Merry Widow."
"Alone at Last" was first produced
on the continent under the name of
"Endlich Allein." The three acts of
the play are laid in Interlaken, Swit-
erland. The second act is divided into
three scenes showing the base, the
slopes, and the summit of the Jung-
frau. A party of American tourists
makes the ascent of the mountain
and the audience is able to follow
this ascent on the stage. The plot of
the story is furnished by a young Am-
erican girl who, in the company of a
guide from the hotel, a young baron in
disguise become separated from the
rest of the company, and are maroon-
ed in a snow storm at the summit of
the mountain.


Editor, The Michigan Daily:
Inasmuch as the vast country of
Germany which is surrounded by the
small and friendly nations such as
Russia, France, and England, was not
forced to protect herself in the ag-
gressive style which we all know is
so typical of the average German, and
inasmuch as submarines have been
sighted in the Mississippi river, and it
is rumored on good authority that they
have been seen in the Huron, it is
time that we realized our danger and
made preparations to for the protect-
ing of our country.
In order to placate the pacifists, I
suggest that we hold at least the semb-
lance of a campus vote. We are sure
to win. A few padded ballot boxes
would do the trick. A little of sturdy
force might gain for us the name of
swashbucklers, and renegades of
truth, but what of that so long as we
were getting what we wanted?
You see, we have nothing to loose.
Many of us who favor militarism can
train and become officers, thus escap-
ing the dirty work, and dangers, in
the trenches-at least this was sug-
gested at one of the drills the other
night. Then, too, many of us are.
elderly deans, and doctors of medicine
and so forth who will not have to
imperil ourselves or undergo the
healthy training and discipline which
the pacifists so sentimentally call "the
demoralizing herding of men." The
freshmen, the sophomores, and those
to come will bear the burdens, so we
ought to be zealous with no fear of
being enmeshed ourselves.
There are some, doubtless, who
would , object to our rugged, healthy
style of force, and question whether
it did not resemble the tyrannous
style of the kaiser. But this would,
plainly, be reasoning on their part
and hence their downfall; for, there is
no reason in war or its accessories' of
military training and the like; force
is the instrument of war; force isrthe
last resort in any case; we are secure.
There have been foolish historians
who said that the victory of Greece
over Persia was the triumph of intel-
lect over force, but we militarists can
claim that as long as the species,
man, lives brawling and fighting will
be common. Thus, we might as well
reconcile ourselves to it and forget
the idyllic, contemptible, impossible
dream of the triumph of intellect over
Editor's Note-It is intimated in
the above communication that the vote
to be held tomorrow on compulsory
military training will be managed by
a group of partisans who will manipu-
late the vote through the padding of
ballot boxes. As the vote will be held
in open assemblies, and the voters will
be required to sign their name and
class to the ballots, there will be no
opportunity for irregularities. It ap-
pears that an apology is due the deans
under whose supervision the vote will
be taken.
Pick Speakers for Women's Luicheon
At the luncheon for Michigan wom-
en to be held next Saturday under the
auspices of the Women's league, the
principal speakers will be President
Harry B. Hutchins, Mary E. Farns-
worth, '041 of Detroit, former presi-
dent of the Women's league, and Olga
Shinkman, '17. Helen Humphreys,
'16, Will act as toastmistress.

Lawrence, Kans., March 27.- The
following is the definition of college
spirit from the essay on "College Spir-
it," by Caroline McNutt, which won
the Graduate Magazine prize:
"College spirit, to me, is that im-
portant constitutent in the make-up of
every loyal student that compels him
to put the good of his college before
everything else-athletics, scholar-
ship, honors, personal pleasure, or
gain; it is the bigness within him that
binds ,him close to his alma mater in
a never-dying friendship with her sons
and daughters; it is the determination
within him to give his college all that
he has to give without thought of
what his college is giving to him."
Iowa City, Ia., March 27.-Speed rec-
ords 'for the vicinity of Pekin, China,
have been broken by an alumnus of
Iowa university who piloted his car
at the high rate of 25 miles per hour.
A sight-seeing trip to Tangshan
springs was made by the party of en-
gineers, who are building railroads In
China, during one of the holidays and.
the Pekin Daily News reported the
trip as being the fastest made in that
vicinity. Chinese bullocks were ter-
rified and wagons were upset by the
"demon" which argued the right of
way with everything on the road. The
average speed for the trip was com-
puted to be 19 miles per hour.
Art Museum Receives Two Paintings
Two paintings, the gift of J. A.
Wetmore, '81, have been presented to
the Art museum of the University.
Both paintings are originals, and date
from the eighteenth century.
"The Death of Cleopatra" by Varoni
is representative of the Italian school
of the eighteenth century. The other
is a landscape by "Old Crone", an
English painter. Aside from the artis-
tic viewpoint this picture presents an
interesting study in the development
of landscape painting. Mr. Wetmore
presented the Museum last .year with
Huntington's famous landscape, "In
the Mountain Fastness."
Dr. Walker Speaks on Bird Houses
The Ann Arbor Bird club will meet
at 7:30 o'clock tomorrow evening in

lustrated lecture on the winter vis-
itant species of birds. Dr. E. D. Walk-
er will talk briefly on bird houses

garding committees that have been

trips. Members are urged to attend

staff of the zoology department, Prof.
J. E. Reighard, who is a member of
the zoological section of the National

sions of opinion regarding the oppor-
tunities open to zoologists for assist-
ing in national defense.
