Tfhe Military Training issue of the
Gargoyle will appear at noon today
according to schedule. A striking
cover design in red and black by D.
T. Hoffman, '19M, a running fire of

striking features of this issue.
Without doubt the feature of the
issue is the double page drawing of
the campus under military training.
Besides exhibiting excellent technic,
the picture embodies over sixty sep-

best thing the Gargoyle has ever put

BUNKER ADDRESSES ENGINEERS
"Always0 Do the Best You Know How"
Says Law Professor
"The debt you pay back to Michi-
gan makes you richer as you pay it,"
said Prof. Robert E. Bunker, of the
school of law, yesterday, at the soph
engineer assembly, in speaking of
what they owe to the university for
the many opportunities it has given
them. "Never allow yourself to in-
vade property or private right," and
"Always do the best you know how,"
was some more advice that Prof.
Bunker gave in his address.

Plans are being formulated to es
tablish a university branch of the
American legion a military organiza-
tion. The legion embraces thousands
of men at present who are engaged in
various trades. In a recent campaign
in New York 10,000 men enrolled in a
week, and 5,000 in a similar campaign
which was held in Detroit.
The United States at present has
no record of the addresses and quali-
fications of its honorably discharged
soldiers, sailors and marines, nor has
it information of available men trained
in the various occupations essential to
the conduct of modern war. The
American legion was formed to enroll
the names of all such men qualified
either by previous military training or
technical experience, and who will ex-
press their willingness to respond in
case the government should at any
time need their services. The inform-
ation obtained by the legion, care-
fully classified as to qualification and
location by a system of cross indexing,

Ignace Jan Paderewski, the famous
Polish pianist, who has held. first rank
among pianists for a quarter of a
century, clearly demonstrated his right
to that position last evening when he
appeared in Hill auditorium.
With his unlimited power and re-
sources he showed himself to be the
complete master of the pianoforte,
bringing out every degree of shading
from the most crashing "fortissimo"
to the most quiet and soothing "pian-

haps, were the best received were the
Schubert "Fantasia," "Le Coucou," by

Hongroise," and the Chopin group, es-
pecially "Etude No. 11" and the
"Scherzo in B Flat Minor."
Paderewski was very generous upon
this occasion and responded to several
encores, some of which wehe Schu-
mann's "Warum," Chopin's "Military
Polonaise in A Major," and the "Turk-
ish March" by Beethoven. These en-
cores, being familiar numbers, were
especially well received.
