A PRACTICAL STEP
After spring vacation a professor in
the engineering college will conduct a
course to prepare men for the officers
reserve corps examinations. Such a
step is of greatest value to the govern-
ment, because it will help supply of-
ficers for the army of 500,000. It will
be of greatest value to the student
because it will enable him to apply
his education in such a way as to
fit himself for a comm sion not the
position in the ranks he would other-
Would it not be possible for te
University to establish a number of
these courses for men in all schools
and colleges to begin immediately aft-
er the spring recess? The details of
such a plan could be worked out dur-
ing vacation, and announced upon the
students' return. Special courses are
being arranged for the medical and
engineering students, but general
courses are needed for other students
who with but a few months of train-
ing and study could qualify as reserve
officers of infantry.

are told by faculty members who do
attempt to give us a working knowl-
edge of common facts which should
already be familiar, that never was
there a period of the world's history
which approached the present in re-
spect to the importance of its effect
on the institutions of the future. Still,
accepting this statement complacently,
we refuse to prepare ourselves to meet
the issues whose settlement will be
made infinitely more simple by a lit-I
tle original thinking at this time. If
every man in the university could
make it a plan of campaign to inquire
now and then into the how and where-
fore of the most important matters of
practical existence, the United States,
if it should go to war, would go
calmly because of the knowledge that
every question had been sifted to thel
bottom and the step was being taken
advisedly and not go with an appear-
ance of calm which was in reality a
mask for ignorance.-Cornell Daily

OUR CALM A MARK OF
"How calmly we go to war!" a pro-
fessor was heard to remark recently.
Aside from the fact that the United
States has not yet officially gone to
war, this observation is an excellent
epigram on the present situation in
this country. Either the people of the
United States, judging, of course, by
the university community, are su-
premely indifferent at this critical
hour, or they will begin to stir and
rub their eyes in a dazed fashion when
they awake to the fact that the coun-
try has acted.
Assuming that the average Ameri-
can of the college age is not the
stoic his present indifference would
indicate, it must be concluded that
this calm and self-possession in the
face of threatened war can be attrib-
uted to a complete lack of knowledge
of the present critical state of the
nation. Aside from the casual in-
formation gained from a glance at the
most striking headlines in the daily
papers many undergraduates today
are almost totally ignorant of the
vital issues of the day. As for having
a sound opinion on the questions
whose settlement can be calculated to
have the most profound influence on
the lives of all of us, it is the idea
of many that this is the concern of
others and not of the man who is
seeking an education.
It is not the fault of the faculty
that the student has no ideas of his
own on the present day vital issues.
It is probably a safesassertion that
many times the professor finds more
of a point of contact with his class
when he holds fast to the printed text
than if he chooses to branch out into
a discussion of the present interest.
In the first case he can at least as-
sume that his students have heard of
the matter under discussion; in the
second he must often times continual-
ly sound his audience to determine the
extent of their information.
That this is true at such a time as
this is practically indefentsible. We
