Champaign, Urbana, February 26,
1914.-Dean of Men of the University
of Illinois, and the health officers of
Champaign and Urbana say that the
spread of scarlet fever is beginning
to yield to the measures which the
authorities have taken to stop it.
Two of the scarlet fever victims,
Miss Ona Reno, a nurse, and Mrs. Har-
ry Lindgren, an Urbana woman, died
early Wednesday morning. Miss
Reno, who was a nurse in the Burn-
ham hospital, died at that place. She
contracted the disease last Thursday
night from a student patient whom she
was nursing.
Edward A. Hardt, attorney for the
state board of health, came yesterday
to assist the local authorities. Im-
mediately after investigating the local
conditions he issued the following
statement: "I cannot understand the
official origin of the absurd story that
the two cities of Champaign and Ur-
bana are to be quarantined because of
the presence of several cases of scar-
let fever in such cities."
All students now in the University
isolation hospital or in the Burnham
hospital were resting nicely at mid-
night last night. Many are well on the
way to recovery.

Students to be Trained in Patrols,
Outposts, Combat and Army
Rifle Shooting.
Major-General Leonard Wood and
Captain R. 0. Van Horn, both of the
regular army, will visit Ann Arbor
next week to speak to the university
men regarding the summer military
camp for students, to be established
near Ludington, on Lake Michigan, in
Four such camps are being planned
by the government-one in the lake
region of New York state, one in Vir-
ginia, one in Michigan and one on the
Paciflc coast. The idea is to train
young men in the rudiments of war-
fare, so that the staff of officers can
be enlarged should the nation ever
need their services. General Wood
claims that privates are plentiful, but
trained officers are a scarcity.
College men and seniors in high
and preparatory schools are eligible
to attend. Students must attend the
full course of five weeks and pass
a physical examination.
Expenses are a $22.50 deposit, of
which $17.50 is for board, and $5.00
for payment for loss or damage to
government property entrusted to stu-
dents while at the camp. The $5.00
will be returned at the termination of
the course, if no property has been
damaged or lost.
Each student will be required to
purchase the usual cotton olive drab
uniform, campaign hat, leggins and
two olive drab shirts. The government
furnishes cots, blankets, tentage, cook-
ing outfits, and complete infantry
equipment for each man. Trained
army cooks will prepare the food and
the necessary personnel for the or-
ganization and maintainance of the

will be supplied by army surgeons.
Students who have not been inoculat-
ed for smallpox can be vaccinated at
the camp if they so desire.
The discipline will be strict and
just, the students being placed upon a
regular cadet status. The theoretical
principles of tactics, including ad-
vance and rear guards, patrols, out-
posts and combat will be studied and
explained by a series of informal
talks, tactical walks and war games'
conducted by selected competent offi-
Military map making and road
sketching will be explained and op-
portunities for practical work offered.
Physical drill, marching, camping,
tent pitching, making and breaking
camp, loading and unloading wagons,
camp expedients, field cooking, camp
sanitation, first aid to the injured,
physical hygiene and the care of
troops in the field will be taught by
The proper handling of the army
rifle will be taught by means of gal-
lery practice. To those who qualify,
the National Rifle Association of
America will give marksmanship
badges. A trophy will be offered for
team shoots, each educational insti-
tution entering a team.
Army officers will lecture on dif-
ferent branches of the service as field
fortification, military bridge building,
use of explosives, the installation and
operation of field telephones and radio-
telegraphic apparatus, signal flags and
general signal corps work, the psych-
ology of war, reasons for past defeats
to the American armies, and a com-
parative study of the army methods of
the United States. and other nations.
Certificates of completion of the course
will be filed in Washington, with offi
cial remarks as to fitness to future

nis, swimming, boating and fishing fa-
Plans for the filing of applications
will be outlined by Captain Van Horn

Loos, by System of Four Orders, Keeps
in Touch with All Material
Few students realize the vast
amount of materials of all kinds which
are purchased by the university
through the purchasing department.
Each department, whenever it desires
any new material must write an or-
der on the purchasing agent, Charles
Loos, so that the latter is a general
clearing house for medical supplies,
chemical supplies, food stuffs for the
hospitals, iron and steel materials for
the construction of buildings, pipes
for water lines and countless other
When an order is received for some
article, four copies of this order are
made. The first is sent to the store
house. If the material is on hand the
auto truck calls for and delivers the

Registrar Hall Shows How the Annual

Clubs is Made .
Editor Michigan Daily:
Frequent inquiries are made as to
the method employed in the construc-
tion of the chart of comparative stand-
ings of house clubs which is prepared
each summer. I am glad to expla n,
the method used, so that any group, if
it so chooses, may construct a cai rt

The method described applies :o
students in the graduate, liter- , '
gineering, law and pharmacy depart-
ments, since the grading systems In
those departments is now identical.
The varying. subsequent treatment of
the D grade has no bearing. In reck-
oning the percentage standing a sys-
tem of weighting the various grades
had to be adopted, which is of course
arbitrary, but seems fair and is in ac-
cord with the practice of other uni-
versities. Thus, each hour of A grade
is weighted at one and a half, B grade
at one and a quarter, C grade at one
or par, D grade at one-half and E
grade at zero. Hours of incomplete
and absent from examination are

Dividing the weighted credit, 196,
by the total number of hours complet-

two charts issued is that of 15 thou-
