Editor The Michigan Daily:
In view of the prevalent agitation
on the campus with regard to the in-
troduction of a military system at the
Ufniversity of Michigan, may I be per-
mitted to write briefly of the plan 'as
it has worked at the University of Illi-
ncis, where l was a student up to this
At Illinois there has been recruited
the largest university military corps
in the United States. There are about
Lt00 men engaged in the work, mak-
ing- up two regiments, a battery, a sig-
nal corps and two military bands.
The whole organization is command-
cd by a United States major, and all
other officers are students who are
p.cked for their ability in the various
lines of work. It is also of incidental
interest that no student may be an of-
ficer who has not received satisfactory

Widespread efforts are being made on
the part of those responsible for they
success of the many extra-curriculum
affairs of the students to enlist the ac-
tive interests of the university'women.
The field is open and the women must
take up their share of the work if
they are to hold the position they have
gained in the past five years;
It wasn't so long ago that the term
co-ed was applied with unconceal-
ed contempt; Womei were not wanted I
on the Michigan campus and the men
with the characteristic perverseness of
their sex in regard to such matters,
opposed their advent in all conceivable,
ways. Yet the movement thrived and
time proved that there was as much
room here for the women as for the
members of the opposite sex. Today
their social position in the university
is unchallenged. They have won.
a right to the privileges of Michigan
students, bnt they have not accepted
the duties that these privileges im-
pose. A woman helped make the Gar-
goyle last year. Their influence on
the Daily is already being felt, and
now the Michiganensian is swinging
into line with an appeal for feminine
Last year the Michiganensian de-
voted 175 pages to men's interests,
but only 15 to women.' This Is out of
all proportion to the ratio of the sexes,
yet it can't be remedied withut co-op-
CERCLE FRANCAIS COMPLETES
PROGRAM FOR ENSUING YEAR
Prof. Levi and Mr. Christie Speak on
Subjects of Interest to
Cercle Francais will put into the
hands of the students next Tuesday
its complete program for the ensuing
year. The complete program contains
two new lectures, one by Mr. Emmer-
son Christie of the Spanish depart-
ment and the other by Prof. Moritz
Levi of the French department.
Mr. Christie will lecture on the sub-
ject of "The Work of French Scientists
in the Philippines" and should prove
very interesting as Mr. Christie has
spent much time on the islands after
graduating from Yale i 1. 0. Prof.
Levi will speak on "Life in Paris".
The finished program will consist of
seven lecturers and two soirees.
Prof. Canfield Gives Interesting Talk
Prof. Arthur G. Canfield, of the
French department, has attracted con-
siderable attention by his lecture,
"Joan of Arc in History and Art." Last
Tuesday he delivered it before the
Women's club at Saginaw, and the
previous Friday he gave it at the Lan-
sing Women's club. He will deliver it
before the Cercle Francais in the near

The system is a two-year compul-
sory one, and includes instruction in
tactics during the period of one se-
Throughout all of last year there
was considerable talk on the Illinois
cam:us of increasing the compulsory
to four years, and, so far as I am able
to judge, the idea seemed to be in al-
most universal. favor.
The system is fairly well liked by
the majority of Illinois men, and while
there are a few who object, they are
the type of men, as a whole, who
'would object to'any form of hard work.
The European war and agitation for
prparedness in this country has done
much to increase the interest of stu-
dents in the system.
The two drills which are the regular
weekly schedule, consist of instruction
in the manual of arms, close forma-
tion, general movements, company and
battalion movements and some little
field tactics. I am of the impression
that: sufficient time is given to the
workso that should the student bat-
talions 'ever be called for active ser-
vice, in the event o a military occu-
pation of this country, they would be
able to take their place with the finest
drilled state militia corps in the coun-
When the system was introduced at
Illinois, there was the same general
opposition on the part of many of the
thinking men on the campus to its in-
stallation, but in my opinion time has
demonstrated to even these opponents
that it has been vastly worth while.

Depot, Episcopal Church and Various
Other Places Now Said to
Rest on Site
That disagreement still exists con-
cerning the exact location and char-
acter of "Ann's Arbor" was the fact
brought out at the meeting of the
Washtenaw Chapter, Sons of the,
American Revolution, in Newberry hall
A great amount of historical evi-
dence was produced, some of which
pointed to the conclusion that the ar-
bor was natural, while the rest testi-
fied that it was made by the original
settlers, John Allen and E. W. Rum-
sey, who' came here in the spring of
1824 along the old Indian trail from
The location of this place was also
questioned. Some authorities believe
it was on the site of the present Epis-
copal church, while others state that
it was on Huron street near the depot
where it is crossed by the railroad
New light was shed upon the situa-
tion when President W. W. Florer read
excerpts from the diary of John Allen's
brother, which stated that Mrs. Allen
did not arrive in this place until Octo-
ber 16, 1824, instead of in the spring
of that year, as had been generally
This diary is to be partially included
in a new history of Mrs. Ann Allen
which is being written by Mrs. Kath-
erine Anderson. A photograph of a
letter written by Mrs. Allen, which will
be included in this book, was passed
among the members of the society at
As soon as the exact location has
been decided upon the society will
chose either a tablet or stone to mark
the spot. It is hoped that this will be
done simultaneously with the publish-
ing of Mrs. Anderson's history.
