ecteenth Michigan, one of "The 3005
Famous Regiments," was mustered in.
No sooner had the regiment arrived at
Washington that; the new recruits were
put in action. Lee was advancing upon
Washisgton, cocnI tho Utniveroity com-
pany was detailed to guard Navy Yard
bridge. When Washington was out of
danger General McClellan pursued Lee
across Maryland into South Mountain.
From this point the enemy could not be
dislodged, and soon the army became
dejected. The student company came
up singing and giving the college yell
and soon the whole corps livened up.
- All attempts to dislodge the enemy
have failed and the Army of the Poto-
mac is held at bay. The commander
asked for a regiment to volunteer to
lead the charge. The veterans knew
what it meant and kept silent. It was
suggested, in a bantering way, to try
the new noisy regiment from Michigan,
with their new uniform. The captain
of the student company was questioned
and asked his men if they would under-
take the task. Every man responded.
The order is given, "Charge, Seven-
teenth Michigan." The students led
with the U. of M. yell and stormed up
the gap, raked by deadly musketry.
Drayton's brigade of South Carolinians
was driven from its guns planted be-
iiinll a stone wall, and General Lee's
victorious veterans received the first
check in their course of conquest.
From that time on they were known
as the Stone Wall Regiment. The
commanding general publicly commend-
ed the company and its commander.
The company had lost nearly 20 per
tent of its number and three days later
suffered a still greater loss at the
bloody field of Antietam. During the
rest of the war the cmtpoiny, though
greatly thinned out, constantly distin-
guishaed itself. 'Of the many students
who enlisted from the University, the
greater number returned home at the
close of the war as commissioned oafH-
cers. In 18655the University voted de-
glees to a considerablenumber of stu-
dents who had not quitecompleted their
work,;

Student Naval Reserves. ALL TI1E 4ATEST NOVELTIES IN

About 300 students crowded into the
court house last night in answer to the
call for a mass meeting to arouse en-
thusiasm for the formation of a stu-
dents' battalion of naval reserves. The
meeting was called by J. C. Hlalaplian,
an alumnus of the class of '95, now
head of the Naval Academy of the
Great Lakes, situated at Toledo. The
meeting did not move off with the ener-
gy and enthusiasm which character-
izes most meetings of Michigan's stu-
dents. The fervor and zeal of the stu-
dent demonstration of two weeks ago
was conspicuously absent, owing to the
extremely incomprehensible manner in
which the meeting was conducted. The
call for volunteers to enlist did nott
meet with a very heavy response, not
one apparently konowing for what they
were invited to enlist.
AfterImuch discussion, several stu-
dents took the matter in hand, and af-
fairs took a different turn. A commit-
tee consisting of Messrs. Church, An-
derson, Marks, Hamilton and several
others was appointed and the response
to their call for volunteers was itmme-
diate. Nearly a hundred names were
secured and drill masters were appoint-
ed, who will begin the work of drilling
as soon as circumstances will perotl.
After the meeting the students formed
in line and marched to the canpts,
where they dispersed.
Another meeting is to be held tonight
in the court house. It is to be hoped
that a large o number will be present,
and moreover that the meeting will be
conducted in some sort of a systematic
manner. Thetotal absence of anything
like system last ight caused the meet-
ing to be perilously sear a failure, and
but for the timely action of several
students no result whatever would
have been arrived at. .
