Several Professors and their Parties
Are Overtaken by War While
Touring Europe
Several Students Encounter Stirring
Adventures in Warring
Practically all the Michigan stu-
dents and professors who were in
Europe at the outbreak of war, have
been heard from.
Prof. Fred N. Scott has cabled that
he and his family were to return Sep-
tember 23 on the "Nordam," which
had been delayed in port for several
days. When the war started Prof.
Scott was in the interior of Germany,
from where he escaped to the Hague
with difficulty.
Prof. and Mrs. William H. Butts
were in Spain at the beginning of
hostilities. They were left penniless
until a Spanish friend relieved their
distress on the day before their ship
left the port at Barcelona.
Among those who escaped almost
unscathed were Prof. and Mrs. Arthur
G. Hall who were travelling in Great
Britain. They left England in state-
rooms which they had engaged several
weeks before.
Prof. William D. Henderson and
family, and a daughter of Dean John
0. Reed were in Paris where news of
the war broke upon them unexpected-
ly. They were obliged to stand up
most of the way to London and to
endure steerage quarters on the voy-
age home.
Friends of Prof. Albert A. Stanley
have received word that he sailed
from England September 20, expect-
ing to arrive at Ann Arbor about the
time of university opening.
When Austria declared war, Prof.
John O. Reed was in Vienna with his
family. He went to Jena where he
had intended to join Prof. Henderson's
party. He expected to remain at Jena,
rather than risk a hazardous voyage
to America.
Dr. and Mrs. Reuben Peterson at
the latter end of July were at Frei-
burg, Germany, where a group of
specialists were studying the twi-
light sleep. Dr. and Mrs. Peterson
had just returned from an automobilei
trip near Liege when the news of
war reached Freiburg. After a thril-1
ling escape from Germany to London,
they secured steerage passage to the
United States, and on September 5
arrived at Ann Arbor.
A party of thirteen, including Prof.1
James P. Bird and twelve women had
variegated luck in escaping the wara
countries. The party had gone as fari
as Berne by the last of July. Here the
unexpected news of war prevented
their starting for Belgium and Ger-<

many, and made them hasten to Paris.
The party with difficulty reached Bou-
logne where the English troops were
just landing. In England the party's
railroad trip from London to Glasgow
was hindered for some time by the
passing of some 200,000 Russian troops
through the island. The thirteen sail-
ed August 26, in a ship accompanied
by an English cruiser, and on a north-
ern route endangered by ice-bergs.
The greatest danger came in the St.
Lawrence River where the ship was
rammed, and saved only by all night
work with the pumps.
Prof. Rene Talamon and bride were
affected more seriously. They were
on their wedding trip in Paris when
the great war broke, and he enlisted
in the French army. Prof. Talamon
was appointed drill-master at a re-
cruiting station whither his wife was
able to accompany him. Near the first
of September he was ordered nearer
the front and his wife returned to her
sister's home in Paris. It is believed
that he is now at the front of the bat-
ale line.
Among Michigan students in Europe
were H. BeachCarpenter, '14, Morris
Milligan, '14, Carlton Jenks, '15, West-
cott Smith, '15E, Howard M. Warner,
'16, Lawrence G. Puchta, '17, W. S.
Davidson, '15, Bruce D. Bromley, '14,
John T. Naylon, '15E. These were all
subjected t trouble in leaving Europe,
and some were forced to submit to the
horrors of a steerage passage to Amer-
Management Hopes to Stage Produc-
tion in Coming Season at
Hill Auditorium
Michigan Union Opera plans have
gone forward during the summer va-
cation until General Chairman Ken-
neth Baxter, '15E, was able to an-
nounce yesterday that a six day trip
would be made during spring vacation,
beginning with a presentation of the
show in Kalamazoo on Monday, April
12, Grand Rapids on Tuesday, Chicago
on Wednesday, South Bend on Thurs-
day, Toledo on Friday, and Ddtroit on
Saturday night. Permission to take
such a trip has been obtained from the
Senate Council and definite arrange-
ments have been practically completed
in all of the cities.
March 24, 25, 26, and 27 have been
chosen as the dates for the Ann Arbor
performances. The management is
endeavoring to make satisfactory ar-
rangements for staging the opera in
Hill auditorium. If this can be done
the Wednesday and Thursday night
shows will be omitted.
The 1915 production will be the sev-
enth annual Union Opera, each of
which has been more successful than
the preceding one. The entire Opera
.personnel, management and caste, is
made up of members of the Union.
General Chairman Baxter will meet
with all those who are writing the mu-
sic Wednesday afternoon at 5:00
o'clock at the Union.

Enrollment of Ninety-Five Students
Exceeds All Former Years;
Foresters Attend
This Year
Only One Accident Marks Otherwise
Perfect Year; Many Changes
A record attendance marked the for-
tieth annual engineering camp held
at Douglas Lake this summer. There
were 95 students at the camp. This
is a gain of 58 per cent over the at-
tendance of last year. The largest
camp previous to the one held this
summer was in 1907 when 74 students
Though the camp is primarily for
civil engineers, all of the departments
of engineering were represented at
Camp Bogardus this summer. For the
first time in the history of the camp,
forestry students attended. This is
probably due to the fact that the Unit-
ed States government is now requiring
of its foresters a knowledge of survey-
"We have had a most successful
summer at the Bogardus camp," said
Prof. Clarence T. Johnson, director
of the camp, yesterday. "A splendid
spirit of industry and good feeling was
present in all the work. The general
scholastic standing was higher than
ever before and the weather was ideal
all summer.
"An electric light plant and a new
system of water supply were the ad-
ded improvements this year. Also,
we began replacing the canvas tents
with steel dwellings.
"The camp has now been establish-
ed entirely on a cooperative basis.
Provisions are bought in large quanti-
ties and students pay board exactly
at cost. Every one connected with
the camp is a Michigan student."
Among the faculty members who vis-
ited Camp Bogardus this summer are:
Prof. Filibert Roth, Dean Karl E,
Guthe, Prof. Henry E. Riggs, Prof. W.
C. Hoad.
One serious accident occurred dur-
ing the summer. Paul Weinlander,
'15E, broke his leg in a ball game. The
limb is still in a cast. Weinlander
will return to college when it has heal-
An innovation at the camp this sum-
mer was the establishment of a vis-
itor's day. August 15 was set aside
for the entertainment of friends and
relatives of the students, and gradu-
ates of the University. About 150
were present. Track and field events
were participated in, and a baseball
game was played.
