NOW CONSISTS OF 2.200 ACRES
Purchase of More Land Gives Univer-
sity Control of Creek; to Develop
With the addition of the 576 acres of
land, the purchase of which was au-
thorized by the board of regents at
their last meeting, the university now
owns about 2,200 acres on Douglas
and Burt lakes, all of which is used
by the surveying and biological camps.
The land gust bought consists of two
tracts, one of which gives the univer-
sity complete control of Carp creek,
a stream running into Burt lake. It is
planned to install on this creek, within
the next few years, a plant which will
"supply the camps with light and pow-
er. The other section of land is clear,
and will be used for railroad surveys.
It has been so utilized in past years,
although the university did not own it.
The university's property now has
a frontage of one mile on Burt lake,
and about three miles on Douglas lake.
It is planned to expand _ hereafter
around Douglas lake, so that contol of
one section of the lake may be secured.

LAW REVIEW TREATS ON WAR
FROM LAWYER'S STANDPOINT
Aspects of the war as seen from a
legal point of view are dealt with in
the opening articles of the Michigan
Law Review, for January, which has
just appeared. "International Law in
War," by Prof. Theodore Nemeyer of,
the University of Kiel. and translated
by Wendell Herbruck, '09L. is the first
of .the articles.
Prof. J. F. Reeves, of the political
science department, has contributedi
an article on. "The Neutralization of1
Belgium and The Doctrine of Kriegs-I
raisen," in which he -criticizes Profes-j
sor Niemeyer's view as expressed in
his article in Juristische Wechen-t
schrift. The attack is made from a
legal point of view and also from that
of a layman.
Among other articles are: "A Com-
parison 'of Some Methods of Concilia-
tion and Arbitration of Industrial Dis-
putes," by Prof. J. H. Brewster and,i
"Corporations and Express Trusts ast
Business Organizations," by Prof. H.
One-two-and on through eighty-
six years, President-Emeritus James
Burrill Angell, Michigan's grand old
man has passed, and to the Daily re-
porter who interviewed him yesterday,
he was more cheerful and optimistic
than many men half his age might be
expected to be.
Sitting in the big easy chair in his
study, reading an original manuscript
on '"Chinese Art and Archaeology"
when the Daily,-reporter was ushered'
in, Dr. Angell smiled and slowly shook
his head when asked for a statement
on his eighty-sixth birthday. "Just tell
them I am enjoying good health and
am glad to see all the students back
again. There isn't much left in Ann
Arbor when all the university folks
When asked to comment on the ex-
isting European war situation, he
again smilingly shook his head, and
refused to make any predictions. How-
ever he stated that he had never be-
lieved that he would live long enough to
see civilization go back 300 years in
one week, as it has done during the
In the course of the interview, Dr.
Angell, in discussing old memories, be-
came reminiscent, and told of many
of the interesting and peculiar people
with whom he had come in contact.
His ancient reputation as the ringer
of the library chimes afforded him
considerable amusement, he said, and
he laughed long and heartily at many
of the old stories, that had bieen cir-,
culated about his prowess in various
lines of campus endeavor.
When urged once more to give to the
campus a signed statement on his
birthday, he very courteously declined,
but said, "You can make this state-
ment for me: As we get older, publici-
ty loses any attraction it may have ev-
er had for us, and all I can say is that
I look upon the future with unbound-
ed optimism, and despite the awful
calamity in which so many of the
world's greatest nations are engaged,
I feel that the rule of God must tri-
umph in the end."

B. Dickey. ex-'08, is the co-author of
the play, having written it in connec-
Ition with Ch.arles Goddard. The pro-
duction, a comedy, has a strong plot
interest, and contains opportunities for
some good work by the principals.
"Yellow Jacket," the second drama
on the list, a novel interpretation of
,the Chinese stage, will be presented
during the first week in March. The
selection of the remaining play lies
between "Lady Windemere's Fan,"
