COMPULSORY TRAINING AGAIN
The communication yesterday at-
tacking The Daily's stand on the in-
troduction of compulsory military
training at Michigan contained one
point worthy of serious consideration.
"Please name the "many state uni-
versities" where the men are now
competent to step out of the ranks
and occupy officers' positions?" asked
the communicant. We had not thought
it necessary to print a complete list
of such institutions, but possibly do-
ing so will partially discredit the as-
sumption of Mr. Wright that establish-
ing compulsory training at Michigan
Will mean turning it into a military
The universities of California,
Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky,
Louisiana, Minnesota, Missouri, Ne-
braska, Nevada, Ohio, Oklahoma,
Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont,
and West Virginia, in addition to Wis-
previously, all require military train-
ing of their students. All of these
state universities have well establish-
ed courses in military science and
turn out men who are competent to
occupy officers' positions.
The question of the communicant,
"How long before we find that it is
'progressive' to advocate the re-intro-
duction of compulsory chapel service
-or compulsory training in Latin and
Greek," is just about as much to the
point as a question we might ask as
to how long before it will be "re-ac-
tionary" to abolish compulsory at-
tendance at classes and compulsory
payment of taxes.
We are still of the opinion that the
Chicago alumni are doing an invalu-
able service to their University and
to their country in organizing a cam-
paign to establish compulsory military
training with adequate facilities to
handle it at Michigan.
A LESSON FROM '98
It was in April, 1898. Our nation
had declared war upon Spain.
On the campus at the University of
Michigan, thrilled to the full ardor of
their youthful patriotism, a full regi-
ment of students drilled every morn-
ing. A band's throbbing martial air,
the University colors, spick and span
uniforms, shining new rifles turned
the slumbering green where the Chem-
istry building now stands to a galaxy
of sound and color.
Their nation needed men. Governor
Pingree, the Grand Old Man of Mich-
igan, wrestling with the problem at
the capitol building, heard about the
University regiment and pondered. He
then sent for his son-in-law, Eli Sut-
ton, a Michigan graduate, to come to
the University of Michigan campus
and get recruits. A captaincy was of-
fered to Sutton as an inducement.
Three days later, Mr. Sutton left the
campus. He needed 100 men to form
a student company. There were 12
such companies drilling at Michigan,
and he asked for but one of 100 men.
He could not raise it.
The situation today is not exactly
analagous. But reflection upon this
deplorable incident of the past may,
perhaps, clean out the ranks of today
some of the fly-by-night ardor, leav-
ing a fighting machine, stripped for
The Regents come up to bat today
for the third time on the Conference
proposition, and we hope they won't
The "Castle walk" should again be-
come popular on the campus now that
the major has arrived.
The pen may be mightier than the
sword but how about carrying a gun?

Students to Discuss Problems of That
Continent in Meet-
Aiming to unite into a body for the
discussion of South Alserica's prob-
lems, 18 students from the southern
continent recently formed the organ-
ization now known as the South Amer-
At the meetings, which are to be
held every other Friday evening, some
faculty member or student who is in-
terested in South America, will lec-
ture on some pertinent topic. Those
students who spent last summer in
the industrial plants of this country
will tell of their experiences there. In
this way the social and economic prob-
lems of South America can be com-
pared with those of the United States.
The addresses will all be delivered
in Spanish. In order to train the mem-
bers in the art of conducting a meet-
ing, a different chairman will preside
each time. There is only one per-
manent office, the secretaryship, which
is filled by G. A. Covarrubias, '17E.

Son Born to Mr. and Mrs. E. V. Moore
Mr. and Mrs. Earl V. Moore are re-
ceiving congratulations on the birth of
a son, Wednesday, April 25. Mr. Moore
is a member of the faculty of the Un-
iversity School of Music.
O, say, can you see by the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight
O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming!
And the rockets red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there;
0! say,,does that star-spangled banner still wave
O'er the land of the free, and the home of the brave?
On that shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foes haughty host in, dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
As, it fitfuly blows, half conceals half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines on the stream;
'Tis the star-spangled banner! 0, long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion
A home and a country should leave us no more?
Their blood has washed out their foul footstep's pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave;
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
0! thus be-it ever when freemen shall stand
Between their loved homes and the war's desolation!
Blest with vict'ry and peace, may the Heaven-rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust";
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free, and the home of the brave.
-Francis Scott Key.
A large force of carpenters and
workmen is now at work in Hill audi-
torium making preparations for the
May festival. The stage, besides be-
ing elevated 18 inches, is being extend-
ed out over four rows of seats and
the first five rows of seats directly in
front of the stage have also been
raised 18 inches. The steel work for
the Choral union seats is being in-
stalled and when completed will af-
ford seating room for about 300 sing-
ers. The work is progressing rapidly
and will probably be completed by the
end of the week.
The Choral union will hold a re-
hearsal at 2:30 o'clock Sunday after-
noon in Hill auditorium. Admission
tickets will be given out at that time
and it is important that all members
Miss Nora Crane Hunt, contralto of
the School of Music faculty, and Mr.
Chase B. Sikes, '17, baritone, appeared
as soloists in Jackson last evening,
singing the contralto and baritone
roles in "Elijah."
Mr. Anthony J. Whitmire, violinist,
of the School of Music faculty; Mr.
James Hamilton, tenor, who is doing
special wprk under Tneodore Harri-
son; Chase B. Sikes, '17. baritone, and
Frank A. Taber, '17, organist, appeared
in concert Tuesday evening at the
Grand River Methodist Episcopal
church in Detroit.

gan Daily Ads. Read them.
Wisconsin: Seniors and juniors of
the agricultural college will be given
full credit in their courses if they
leave the university now and take up
food production for the government.
This decision came as a result of a
national conference held at St. Louis
to determine food needs.
Iowa: Girls of the university have
displayed a remarkable interest in the
Red Cross classes now being organ-
ized to train assistant nurses for the
war. The enrollment is above the
Minnesota: Student-manager con-
trol of intramural athletics has been
inaugurated at the University of Min-
nesota as a result of a long campaign.
It is hoped to bring the athletic board
into better contact with the student
body than was possible formerly.
Yale: University publications of
Yale will be continued during the re-
mainder of the year regardless of the
war. The Yale News has been reduced
in size because of the abolition of the
Kansas: Cooks for the army will
be trained in the home economics de-
partment of the University of Kansas
so that the soldiers going from the
university will receive fit food while
in camp. All work will be carried on
with army rations and facilities.
Iowa: Recitation periods have been
reduced to 45 minutes by action of
the board of deans of Iowa State uni-
versity. Five days each week all men
of the university will be required to
drill and several elective military
courses will be open as well. Phys-
ical training has been abolished.
Harvard: Coaches of the different
branches of athletics will be retained
at least until the end of the year so
that individuals may secure proper
training. It is the opinion at the
university that the students will soon
want some form of athletics after the
first confusion of military organization
