'tar is declared!!!.!"
Amid the stirring strains of the mar-
tial fife, the rattle of the drum, and
beneath the blinding glare of a search
light, Michigan's representatives
marched away to exterminate the Mex-
ican nation.
Exactly at 7:30 p. m. last night, the
regiment of doughty warriors passed
up State street, turned down Liberty,
and halted to have their picture taken
for the last time. Who knows but that
these faces will, in the near future,
be emblazoned in the hearts of the
American people-the first official uni-
versity regiment to start for the land
of chile con carne, revolutions, and'
sagebrush?
.After the picture had been taken and

the smoke of the flash light had drifted
away, the doughty captain raised his
lath sword, and cried, "Present arms!"
Every musket in the force rose with
wonderful precision, for the holder of
that musket had practiced the motion
for two hours. Following this manoeu-
ver, the embryo Grants gave an exhi-
bition drill, whieh was followed by a
tearful and heartbreaking parting be-
tween the soldiers and their friends.
Then, as the library chimes tolled
the hour of eight, the captain adjusted
his tie, gave the high sign to the drum
and fife corps, and turning his face
southward marched from view in the
haze of Liberty street. And on what
more appropriate street than Liberty
could the warriors have marched on?

FERGUSON OR QUAINTANCE
TO PITCH AGAINST ADRIAN
Lundgren Works His Squad Despite
Yesterday's Sudden Cold
Snap
Coach Lundgren gave his squad a
stiff workout yesterday despite the
cold weather. Although the pitchers
were unable to work, the tutor 'an-
nounced that Ferguson or Quaintance
will probably hurl against Adrian Col-
lege in the mid-week game Wednesday.
No special preparation will be made
for this game, but Lundgren hopes for
a better class of opposition than fur-
nished by Alma Saturday. Adrian
was not on last year's schedule, and
little is known of the team this year,
as they have played no intercollegiate
games.

staff, worked out yesterday. Labodie,

Believing that disasters on the Hu-
ron river are due to a general lack of
knowledge of how to resuscitate
drowning persons, the Michigan Union
Boat club, in cooperation with the
University health service and the
Eastern Michigan Edison company,
has begun an active campaign to eradi-
cate this evil. The campaign will also
be directed against those persons who
are not capable of handling water-
craft.
The Michigan State Board of Health
is sending several thousand pamphlets
which explain fully the care of drown-
ing persons, and these will be distrib-
uted by the Boat club.
The plan to be followed by the Boat
club will be the designating of every
canoe or boat of its members, by a
numbered flag, to be given only to
those who have received some instruc-
tion in handling water-craft, and in
swimming. It is hoped that this will
do away with those persons who have
become "nuisances" on the Huron.
Membership in the Boat club is not re-7
stricted to the student body; towns-
people who meet the qualifications of
the club, are encouraged to join.
The Boat club proposes to "clean
out" the river, mark dangerous places
and locate portages where they are
needed. Efforts are being made to
compel all canoeists to carry life pre-1
servers and an extra paddle.
The university health service is
planning to give instructions in resus-
citation to every freshman in the uni-
versity next year. Officials of the
health service are planning to give
Saturday afternoon demonstrations of
resuscitating the drowning. The na-
tional government has also been asked
to send tow navy life-savers here at
the time of the Boat club regatta.

Students and faculty men who are
members of national guard organiza-
tions, are subject to be called upon to
take the field in case war is declared
with Mexico. In case of an order for
service in Mexico, all the companies
will be recruited to their full strength,
and must be prepared to mobilize and
start for the Mexican border at once.
Several of the medical faculty of the
university are members of the medical
reserve corps of the army, and are
subject to call at any time.
"We shall probably be called out in
case the second division is ordered
out," said Dr. C. B. G. deNancrede,
who served through the Cuban cam-
paign in the Spanish-American war
with Dean V. C. Vaughan, of the medi-
cal department. Drs. Reuben Peter-
son and Mark Marshall are also mem-
bers of the.corps, but as yet have not
been engaged in active service.
The roster of the local company of
the Michigan national guard, contains
the names of the folowing students:
Edward Hubbard, '16E, Fred Novy, Jr.,
Clarence Wuerth and L. Armstrong,
'13.
Captain Arthur Warren is an in-
structor in the engineering shops, and
Lieutenant Conrad Lucas is employed
in the electrical laboratory.
L. D. David, '14L, a member of the
Illinois National Guard, in speaking of
the situation last night said, "I do not
presume that our state would recall
student members who are on such
leave as mine. It seems to me that the
companies are of sufficient strength to
make this unnecessary. If called I
should have to go."
Prohibitionists Obtain 500 Signatures
Over 500 students and about 20 fac-
ulty members signed the national pro-
hibition petition which was circulated
on the campus last week.

Applications for admission to the
combined courses, lit-medic, lit-law,

PROMISE GOOD NET SEASON
Michigan's All-Fresh tennis sched-
ule, as so far arranged, includes the
following dates: May 9, Albion at Al-
bion; May 23, Scott high, of Toledo, at
Ann Arbor; and June 16, Ypsilanti
Normal at Ypsilanti.
Two matches with M. A. C., and a
second match with both the Toledo
high school and Ypsilanti are practi-
cally certain. Manager Willis Broad-
head has also written for dates with
Hillsdale and Adrian.
Elimination contests, to decide the
make-up of the team, will start as soon
as the Ferry field courts are in con-
dition.
Campus Eyesore to Disappear Soon
The demolition of the old psychology
laboratory between the law and chem-
istry buildings, which is to be replaced
by the new science building, will be
started within ten days.

J. P. Roberts, '15E, was sent to the
university hospital by the health ser-
vice Sunday, suffering with scarlet fe-
ver. Physicians attending Roberts say
that his case is a very mild one, and
that he will be able to leave the hos-
pital in a week or so.
University health. officers say that
there is little danger of a spread of the
disease, as all those exposed to the in-
fection are under strict surveilance.
Dr. H. H. Cummings, head of the ser-
vice, says that he is convinced that
Roberts contracted the disease while
at home in Erie, Pennsylvania, during
Easter vacation.

trants request it. W. B. Thom, '15,
