The imp;ortance of unimportant
,ings is well illustrated in the plot
of 'ictoiein Sardou's "Les Pattes de
louche," the Frencht play to be pre-
sented by the Cerele Francais next
Tb nrsday evenilug, April' 26, in Sarah
Caswell Angell hall.
Because a scrap of paper, a love
letter, does not reach its destination,
tv o lovers are separated and a series
of complications results, in which a
inetitof wits between Prosper and
Su-anne, the two leading characters
lx the play, predominate.
Lelandi Thomipson, '18, will play the
role of Prosper, while the character of
Suznnewill be taken by Margaret
I~y,'18. Two other fundamental
eharacters in the plot are Vanhove
and Clarisse, taken by Jacob M.
Brande, '18, and Mrs. A. C. Weaver,
Owing to some slight misunder-
standing - occasioned by an article on
military training printed Thtursday
mornintg, some members of the vaca-
tion battalion of volunteers failed to

phatsized that only those students tak--
Jng the course in elements of military
engineering have been called back
°oe the ranks of th-e vacation bat-
talion into tihe departmental corps.
All other volunteers are at liberty to
continue their drills in their respective
battalion companies at the time set

I believe in peace, but peace with
homnor andl self-respect. I believe that
war is a terrible thing that should be
avoided, if possible, butt I also believe
thmat there are things in this world
worse than war; peace without honor
and self-respect is one of them.
I b~elieve in what the flag of my
country stands for: Honor, justice,
truth, liberty, humanity.
1 believe it is the duty of every
American to uphold the flag and what
it stands for, and I believe it the duty
of every able-bodied American to pre-
pare himself in a military way for this
I believe in personal preparedness,
by which I moan if I am ever needed
to defend my sister, by mother, my
home, and my country, I will be pre-
pared to da so.
I believe in national preparedness,
by which I mean may country being
prepared to- uphold what the flag
stands for and to defend itself if, at-
I believe that citizenship carries
with it obligations as well as priv-
ileges, and I believe that military
service is one of the most important
of these obligations.
I believe in the benefits of militar'y
training, I believe' that it strengthens
the body, benefits the health, improves
the mind, and teaches obedience, re-
spect for law and order, patriotism,
courtesy, honor, loyalty, manliness,
thoroughness, system, cleanliness, or-
ganization, and team work. In short,
I believe in military training because
it makes for efficiency and better citi-
zen ship.-From American Defense.
