Who is it that does not know
every illustrous Sophomore by
name? It' there be such a per-
son in town, surely 'he must
be either a "new comer" or
else does not know a good thing
when he sees it. For fear, how-
ever, that there should be
some of our readers in such
a pitiable state, we think that
it is only our philanthropic
duty to do them the kindness
to introduce • to them at least
a few of their characteristics
as revealed in their deeds of
loyalty and perhaps to acquaint
them with a few of the Sophs

alves with the Seniors. Then
not only when days were bright
and fair but when thunder roll
ed and storm clouds bursted,
they were yet faithful and hap
py in their alliance. They not
only fought, suffered and bled
through days of battle but
even through nights of war
and conflict, when in physical
contests, it came to the ques-
tion of fight or run, they al-
ways fought and- in spite of the
fact that they were overwhel-
mingly out-numbered, they put
up a good fight. But their ex-
cellence lies ifc^wit and mental
alertness. When stolen and
carried away it was the Gem

ran two miles to safety and
informed a rescuing party as

Junior kidnappers and their
hostages of Seniors and SJopho-,
Of class day and other class
activities the Sophomores can
keep a secret, which is no mean
compliment. They can be on
the inside of affairs and yet
so close the doors behind them
that even a Junior roommate
cannot get from a one of them
the difference between a fake
class day and the real one; so
that the Juniors are drawn in
large numbers on fake presen-

More books are needed for
the camp libraries and for our
men "over there" To supply
this need an extensive book
campaign will be in progress
from March 18 to 25, 1918.
This war must not be a war
of destruction only. Our fight-
ing men must receive during
inevitable leisure hours in train-
ing and service the humanizing,
helpful effects of good reading.

The domestic trade of the United
States for 1917 was estimated by
Prof. Anderson of Harvard Universi-
ty at $04,000,000,000; in 1913 it was
but $30,000,000,000. The strain on
the financial machinery and resources
of the country to take care of this tre-
mendous increase in our domestic
trade as well as meet the extraordi-
nary demands of the war can be ap-
preciated by all.
The secretary of the Treasury, in j
drafting the war finance bill gave!
thorough study to the measures
adopted by our allies in Europe and to !
the conditions in this country, and it
believed that the proposed bill is a!
wise and conservative war measure
to give relief during the period of the
war. It is primarily a measure to
enable the financial institutions of
the country to furnish necessary cred-
its to industries and enterprises es-
sential to the prosecution of the war
and Secretary McAdoo is of the opin-
ion that the mere existence of the
machinery established by this act
would be so effective in maintaining
confidence that the actual exercise of ;
the power would seldom be needed.
