U. of M. Daily: - "The corninittee of students appoiuted to solicit subscriptions for the gymnasium is an active one. Every man in the University will be asked to contribute what he can. No one should assume that, if the gymnasium is to be built at all, it will be built without his mite, for this spirit of ndifference grows, and every man in the University is responsible for his share to the gym. If you can't give much, give little ; if you can't give anything, say so like a man and" help the cause on by an active interest in other ways. Let no senior refuse to give because he will not be here to use the gymnasium. Such selfishness is disloyalty to his alma mater, and those who have experienced the need most should not be the least generous in their subscriptions. It must be admitted, however, that the men in the lower classes and the high school are the ones who have the greatest interest in the matter. They will see the gymnasium when it is built ; they will develop their own muscles in it and inay see and reet U. of M. athletes in it when their standing in college athletics will be much higher than at present. If every man shares the spirit of loyalty, feels that unconcern is criminal when the gymnasium is at stake and gives what he can can because it is a duty, the success o: the fund is assured. But if the requests of the solicitors are met with indifference or apathy, we shall not and oughi not to have a gymnasium. The interest the alumni take is in a great measure dependent on the interest taken by the men in the school, and it should be. We have been wanting a gymnasium for years, and this is the iir.st definite hope wc have ever had of getting one. Lei every man work for it an 1 ■ re towardé it
