more space is being given this year
by the newspapers receiving the copy
sent out than ever before. Everything
that is sent in is being placed and this
is due in a measure to the changed
character of the selections given to
the papers. The .state papers in par-
ticular have printed all the news se-
lections given to the papers. The
eastern papers have given especial at-
tention to the articles on the housing
problem here in the university, the
fraternity question and the inter-fra-
ternity conference rules, and the uni-
versity administration happenings.
The university news service is this
ye ar proving to be a great success,.
and.Prof Brumm is more than pleased
with the reception which the newspa-
pers are giving the selections sent out
under his direction.

War De)laration Finds iDetroiters in
Midst of Great Military
BRITISH OFFICERS SEARCH SHIP
Although many Michigan men have
told varied tales of their wanderings
in the European war zone, the party
consisting of three Detroiters, Dr. J.
G. English, W. J. Calgins, '14E, and
J. T. Naylon, '15E, who journeyed
through the very heart of the warring
nations, listened to the whistling of
shells, slept beneath the whirring of
militaty aeropla nes, were halted on
the high seas, and finally reached
home unscathed, can, perhaps, recount
more thrills and chills than any of the
others who were caught in Europe on
their summer vacation.
Starting on a pleasure and photog-
raphing trip to Constantinople, the
voyagers were caught in mid-ocean
With the news of Arch-duke Ferdi-
nand's assassination. Nevertheless,
they pressed on through England and
France without noticing any signs of
war, and it. was not until they had
reached Venice, that the first declara-
tion was made.-- that of Austria
against Servia. Even in the face of
this, the party pushed on to Vienna,
and learned, upon reaching that city,
that Russia and Germany were mobil-
Basel, Switzerland, offered a place
of refuge for them for the first few
days of the .war. It was while there,
that the wanderers heard the shells of
the battle of Mulhausen, in Alsace, and
lay awake on their cots, listening to
the ghostly war-planes on their deadly
night missions. Among the 150 Amer-
icans delayed in Basel, a veritable
committee of safety was organized, in
the form of a society, of which Mr.
Naylon was made assistant secretary.
The party then made their way to
Genoa, to get a ship bound for home.
Contrary to conditions in Switzerland,
where prices had been reasonable,
there the travelers were compelled to
pay triple prices for their passage on
the "Verona." Even then, their troub-
les were not over. The "Verona" was
held up out of Gibraltar by a British
gunboat, and it was not until they had
thrice assured their captors of the
absence of Germans on the "Verona,"
that the latter vessel was allowed to
resume h'er journey.
FORM M1,1IIGAN CHAPTER OF
BIROTERHOOD OF S'r* ANDREW
At a recent meeting held in the Epis-
copal church, a Michigan chapter of
the Brotherhood of St. Andrew was
organized. The Brotherhood is com-
posed entirely of university men, and
as organized consists of 18 members,
four regular and 14 probationary. With
these, as a nucleus, the association
hopes to develop into a much larger
institution. 1. C. Johnson, '16, was
elected acting director.
NO DRUGS - NO DANGER
Cornelius Baer, '16, Relates Thrilling
Experiences of Shipwreck
in South Seas
LIVES WITH FIERCE CANNIBALS
Probably there is no student in the
university who has had more exciting
or hairbreadth experiences than Cor-
nelius G. Baer, '16, who talked to the
Cosmopolitan club Wednesday night.
He was wrecked on a cannibal island
of the south seas 10 years ago, when
"sailing before the mast," and his ad-
ventures sound like the wildest phan-
:asies of a fiction writer.
"It was in June 1904, when our ship
the 'Aigburth' set sail from Newcastle,
Australia, for London," said Baer yes-
terday in recounting his adventures.
Heavy storms prevented us from tak-
ing the usual route around the south
coast of Australia, so we started
northward through the coral islands
and along the coast of New Guinea.
We were out about 60 miles from the
New Guinea coast, when the ship
struck a sunken reef and started to
settle in a dangerous manner."
"We abandoned the ship and made
our way to the shore in row-boats.
Upon reaching the island, we noticed
natives moving about in the distance
and gradually drawing nearer. At
close range they turned and made a
break for the jungle, terrified at the
sight of a white man, which was ap-
parently a new thing for them. After
much effort, we effected a truce with
them and traded some clothing for a
few supplies and a fire stick.
"A few days later, when all eyes
were scanning the sea for a sail, sev-
eral canoes appeared. Thinking that
perhaps they were filled with traders,
we hailed them. What was our dis-
may to learn that they were more
south sea islanders. It was later
learned that they belonged to the cun-
ning Arramut tribe of cannibals. At
first these savages seemed very friend-
ly and agreeable, but when they start-
ed feeling of the flesh on our arms
and legs w had a few misgivings."
"We lived with these people for nine
days, all the time growing more and
more restless, for they persisted in
feeding us great quantities of cocoanut
and other fattening foods. The second
mate identified the tribe as man-eaters
but we could do nothing but wait and
watch for a chance to make our get-
away. One day a Chinese trader from
a neighboring island visited the tribe.
We made it known to him through
signs that we wished to escape from
the hands of the savages. He inform-
ed us that a trading schooner would
stop at this island in two weeks."
"The Chinaman did not have room
'or us in his boat, but the next day we
stole several of the natives' boats
while they were out hunting and made
our way to Manndock island where
the Chinese trader was located. None
of us doubted but that the savages
would have eventually killed and eaten
"A German sloop, the 'Nubia,' took
us off the island A week later. We
found our way back to Australia by
way of German Guinea and the liner,

In order to aid its treasury, the Uni-
versity of Indiana Union has taken
over a motion picture show which will
be managed and operated by a com-
mittee of students.
Petitions are being circulated on the
campus of the University of Indiana,
asking the student council to reinstate
the new dances at campus affairs.
'raining table for the football team
at the University of California is con-
ducted by the fraternities, one frater-
nity being chosen each season. The
honor is widely sought.
3n institution worthy of imitation
is the "forum," which has been tried
out with success at Harvard. Last
Tuesday evening 100 undergraduates
participated in an open discussion at a
war forum conducted by the Harvard
Union and the Speakers' club. Forums
on this and other public questions will
be arranged later.
Women students of the University of
Texas are circulating petitions asking
that their basketball and other teams
be allowed to schedule intercollegiate
games. The campaign grows out of
the fact that, when the women's bas-
ketball team of Southwestern Univer-
sity came to Austin last year, their
coach, who was a man, was excluded
from the gymnasium and spent the
evening in the parlor of the women's
building, from where he conducted the
game over the telephone.
