TART CAMPAIGN TO
LEASURERS AND COMMITTEES
COMBINE IN EFFORT TO
CLEAR UP DEBT
For perhaps the first time in the
story of the University, a concen-
ated effort is being made by the
asurers of the four classes in the
erary college for the collection of
Las dues. Several committees head-
by the class treasurers have already
en appointed and will push through
vigorous campaign until sufficient
ids have been collected to clear
all class indebtedness.
Several sub-committees, including
>se of fraternity house representa-
es, dormitory representatives and
mmitteemen at large will be united
Por years indebtedness to the class
8 been cleared up just before grad-
;ion by means of a lump payment

s proven unsatisfactory from sev-

le in the past to keep perfectly
urate records of class expenditures,
ing to the fact that a different in-
abent filled the treasurer's office'
successive years. Debts contracted"

eme, could not be finally cleared

BOOKS WORTH READING
Scott Nearing of the University of
Toledo, who is to preach in the Baptist
church next Sunday, has written a
timely book entitled, "Income."
This book is an eloquent plea for
a just economic system in which those
who do the world's work shall reap
the full fruit of their labor. It makes
a serious effort for a fair division of
the social product between those who
Evork and those who own the means of
In making his estimates, Professor
Nearing places on one hand all in-
comes derived as a reward for person-
al effort or service, and on the other,
all inicomes derived through owner-
ships, whether it be called profit, in-
terest, or rent.
What Dr. Nearing proposes is a
new classification "based on function
rather than on tradition."
The book is a valuable contribution
to the arsenal of the social reformer
due to the mass of data bearing upon
the distribution of social income
among different classes of society. The
author has ransacked official reports
of the federal and state governments
and has brought together units of
hitherto unrelated data. By supplying
what seem to be well-founded and, on
the whole, conservative estimates to
fill the gaps in the official reports, he
has been able to arrive at an approxi-
mate estimate of the respective shares
that the workers and property owners
receive from the nation's annual
The book is written in simple, read-
able language, so that those who have
not studied economics at universities
are able to understand it.
Lost Marble Holds Up Library Work
Preparations for moving into the
new reading room have already been
started in the Library, although it is
not definitely known when the new
building will be completed.
Work is being delayed by the freight
congestion in the country. This has
caused a consignment of marble in-
tended for the stacks to be side-track-
ed somewhere between Buffalo and
Ann Arbor. The marble was shipped
from Vermont, April 10.

Prof. E. R. Turner of the history de-

fore one of his classes.
"Germany found her population in-
creasing at a rapid rate with no pos-
sible chance for expansion, and no
means within her borders of satisfy-
ing the rapidly growing number of
nouths to feed. From her standpoint
w'ar was almost biologically justified.
As one historian has expressed it,
'she had to go to the kitchens of her
neighbors to get it." '
"As far as colonization is concerned,
her lack of colonies to which to send
her surplus population is the result
of lack of foresight on the part of her
statesmen. Bismarck condemned col-
mization and it was not until 1880
hat her leaders saw the mistake, by
hat time all the desirable portions
of the world that were free to colonize
were taken. Her only chance lay in
South America and Turkey. We
blocked the way in South America
and Russia and England in Turkey.
She had to fight if she wanted what

KILLED BILL MEANS STOP
OF TUBERCULOSIS SURVEY
Work to Be Continued as,-Long as
As a result of the bill carrying an
appropriation for $50,000 to be used
in continuing the state tuberculosis
survey being killed by the ways and
means committee of the state legis-
lature, the work which was planned
for 14 counties of the state will have
to be abandoned, according to Miss
Carol F. Walton, secretary of the
Michigan Anti-tuberculosis society.
The work of conducting surveys in
the different counties will continue as
long as the funds hold out, but it will
be impossible to reach the counties
which were scheduled for surveys this
summer and most of which are in the
northern part of the lower peninsula.
The failure of the bill came as a
heavy blow to the Anti-tuberculosis
societ), and will result in much of the
work which has already been done
under the appropriations of the last
two years going for naught. It will
also be a blow to Michigan's prestige
which she has enjoyed for the past two

are the reasons.
Madame Sarah Bernhardt in "Moth-

at its supreme point. It would be
hard to conceive of a picture produced
under more intense circumstances
than this which lays the heart of
France bare to the world. It con-
tains a message from the mothers of
France to the mothers of America.
