"Until further notice all city water
should be boiled," stated Dean Victor
C. Vaughan of the medical college yes-
terday. "The water does not contain
any typhoid bacillis, but it does show
a presence of colon bacillis, which is
likely to become dangerous. The col-
on germ is probably due to the melting
snow which has washed surface dirt
into the water supply."
All during the year, the employees
of the hygienic laboratory are kept
busy with water tests. Many different
processes are used to thoroughly ex-
amine the properties of the water.The
tests include an analysis of the physi-
cal properties, a chemical analysis,'mi-
croscopical and bacteriological exam-
inations, and inoculation experiments
with subsequent examination.'
Germs Turn Media Red.
To discover the presence of the col-'
on germs, the Drigalski media, a blue
preparation of litmus, lactose, and
agar is used on the plate; with this
the colon germs form an acid, turning
the media red. Typhoid bacillis do not
produce the same effect, and micro-
scopical examinations will reveal the
classes to which certain germs belong.
No Notices Will Be Posted.
Frequent warnings from the uni-
versity authorities have been posted in
conspicuous places during pas't years,
advising local consumers to beware of
unsterillized water but the present in-

UNION DOES NOT CONTEMPLATE
CLASH WITH Y. M. C. A. BUREAU
President Blish Issues Statement De-
nqing Rumors Regarding
Complications
"Our employment and rooming agen-
cy, that is to be established next year,
is 'not designed to supplement or in-
vade the field already occupied by the
Y. M. C. A." said President Blish of the
Michigan Union last night, in reply to
the rumors that have been circulated
regarding the clash of the interests of
the two institutions.
"We believe that we can reach a dif-
ferent element than the Y. M. C. A. has
in the past and that there is ample
room for the two bureaus on the cam-
pus. We have no desire to drive the

state that the faculty has passed a:
ruling completely altering the present
amateur athletic standard as far as
the Gophers are concerned.
Hereafter the only things that will
be required of an athlete at the north-
ern institution will be one year's res-
idence and the maintenance of a suf-
ficient scholarship standard. Since
the action has been taken by the facul-

seem likely that the Gophers will back

and the pill is certain to prove too
bitter for at least four of the present
"Big Eight."
Bartelne is Pessimistic.
Director Bartelme, when shown the
report was slightly pessimistic, as he
has seen so many actions taken by dif-
ferent conference colleges fall in the
past that seemed to indicate the im-
mediate dissolution of that body.
However, he said, "this step does
look more like business." When ask-
ed if there would be a place on the
schedule for the Gophers should they
break he replied, "not only for Minne-
sota but for any of them if they get in.
