"LET U .s LEAD9 IN' PEACE"
F. 'F1SHRAUGHI WOULD HAVE THIS
( OUNTRY HEAl) MOVEMENT FOR
NEW HAGUE CONFERENCE.
Editor, The Michigan Daily:
After the war what? Most likely a
defensive alliance for all the Euro-
pean states will be the outcome of this
last great war among them, A cer-
tain- section of these warring nations
who trusted in the power of might to.
conquer and rule all the world, as
well as the reiaining ones who be-
lieved only less in the power of arms
and armaments, will thus be led to
see that the brotherhood of man is
the basic principle of all permanent
peace.
Awful as the present experience of
Europe is, it has probably hastened by
hundreds of years the universal ac-
knowledgment and adoption of the
principle that right, not might, is the
best law for the welfare of nations.
Then why prolong (one and a half
year's carnage has been decisive of
nothing) an unnecessary and useless
conflict, that can only result in the ex-
haustion of these self-same powers and
the century-long misery of the great
masses of all these peoples? If a new
Hague Conference were to sit contin-
uously until the peoples of these coun-
tries compelled their rulers to submit
their differences to its decisions, pea
might come sooner than anyone would
imagine. What greater role could

take this decisive step and work for
it incessantly until its fulfillment
came.?
Yours very truly,
F. L. FISHBAUGH.
PIOF I. IH. WHITIBECK CORRECTS .
ERrIIiO{S ABOUT ' IRIGATION
Letures on "Reelamation of Desert
Lands;" Disillusions Audi-
ences on Sibject
"Whenever you .undertake to re-
make nature you encounter unex-
pected difficulties," explained Prof.
R. H. IWhitbeck of the University of
Wisconsin in his talk last night at
the natural science ainphitheater on
"Reclamation of Desert Lands." After
correcting some very general errors
about the amount of land irrigated,
which is less than the area of the
Lower Peninsula, and about the great
profits that are supposed to flow into
the pockets of those who farm by ir-
ligation, he told of the difficulties en-
countered in putting under cultiva-
tion only a fraction of our 500,000,000
acres of arid land.
Professor Whitbeck presented both
the pleasant, profitable life in irri-
gated regions and the life of work,
debt, and discouragement which must
be endured before the pleasures can
be enjoyed. He praised the optimism
and self-assurance of the Westerner,
ending with a series of colored slides
which ranged from views of worthless
sage brush land to views of the
$1 ,000,000 Roosevelt dam. Thurs-
day afternoon Professor Whitbeck
spoke on "Some Geographical Influ-
ences Upon the Trend of Civilization."

OR F IHIENROTEAU NEARLY
Cendaruie in Frout Seat of Motor Car
Killed by Bullet on Way
to Ostend
Dr. F. Henroteauthe new member of
the astronomy faculty, arrived in Ann
Arbor a few days ago.
Before leaving his home in Belgium
Doctor Henroteau was connected with
the ob)ervatory at Brussels, but since
the taking of that city by te Germans
he has been working in England.
The observatory at Brussels, accord-
ing to the scientist, was taken by -the
Germans and is being used for mak-
ing meteorological observations by
which to guide army movements and
especially the sending out of Zeppelin
excursions. "On that account there
was little opportunity to conduct
scientific investigation," said Doctor
Henroteau, "and fearing that I would
be taken captive, I decided to leave the
city." In telling of his departure he'
said: "I came home late in the eve-
ning and found my brother, who was
in the army, preparing to leave the
,Uy immediately. I asked him why he
was in such a hurry and he said that
the Germans would enter Brussels the
next day. The gendarmes were post-
ing bulletins advising the people to be
calm so that they would not suffer un-
necessary violence from the invaders.
Seeing that the only way to continue
my work was to go away, I decided to
leave at once."
Doctor Henroteau then told of his
departure, before he was able to get
a supply of money and of the diffi-
culties encountered in getting to Os-
tend. He tells of his narrow escape
there. "I had a relative at Ostend
driving a military motor car. A party
of soldiers was going out to meet
about 200 Uhlans and I desired to
go with my relative, taking a seat be-
side hi. I was persuaded to remain
where I was and I was glad that I
had done so when I learned that the
gendarme who had occupied that very
seat had been killed by a bullet."
Doctor Henroteau went from Ostend
to England, having the equivalent of
but tlirty dollars. He was forced to
become a teacher of French until he
was engaged at an observatory. His
most important contribution there was
his investigation of the sun.
When he was asked about the state
of Belgium, he said: "The people are
fairly well provided for now." His
gratification to the American people
for their relief work was shown when
he said: "We owe much to America
for the help she has rendered to Bel-
gium in her misfortune."
PROF. I. C. AI)AMS WRITES NEI
ROOK, "RAIL WAY AC{)UNTIN("
"Railway Accounting," is the sub-
ject of a new book being written by
Prof. H. C. Adams, of the economics
department.
Prof. Adams has been working on
the manuscript for the past year, and
stated recently that it was near com-
pletion.
This new work will be used in the
economics department in the course
in railway accounting. Up to the
present time no text book has been
used in this course, printed pamphlets
being utilized which contained the
best material to be found pertaining
to railway accounts.

That there are more positons open
for the 'trained young man or woman
than there are men and women to
till these places was emphasized in
a recent talk by Prof. David Friday, of
the economics department.
To make this fact perfectly clear
he showed a letter from the Burroughs
Adding Machine company of Detroit,
which he considers one of the best
managed concerns in the country.
"This firm," said he, "wants college
men to take positions in their plant
in any of the three divisions, office,
service or sales. By making this offer
the value of the university man is ac-
knowledged by a firm which prides it-
self on -its scientific management and
which hires no men but those who can
do the most efficient work."
"Why," continued Professor Friday,
"I received a letter from a large manu-
facturing concern the other day, which
wanted a cost accountant and wanted
one badly. The salary to start was
$1500 a year. This wasra wonderful op-
portunity for some young man, but I
had to write back and inform the
company that I could not furnish
them with such a man at the moment."
"There are innumerable business po-
sitions open to the trained man," con-
tinued Professor Friday, "and the only
difficulty is to get the right men to
fill these places."
Professor Friday also brought out
the fact that the present war has open-
ed up a fertile field for the man trained
in special lines of business.
PROVES THAT EYE ROTATES
Dr. 1). W Myers, of Homeopathic. Med-
ical School, Settles Dispute
Dr. Dean W. Myers of the Homeo-
pathic medical school, recently dem-
onstrated the truth of his contention
that the eye does not oscillate, but
rotates.
Although the prevalent belief is
that proven by Doctor Myers to sev-
eral friends, the theory that the eye
oscillates has found many supporters
among the members of the National
Eye, Ear and Throat Specialists' so-
ciety. By inserting a needle into a
diseased eye about to be removed, Doc-
tor Myers proved his theory conclu-
sively to the witnesses of the opera-
tion. Several X-ray photographs were
taken of the eye in various positions,
and those present were entirely sat-
isfied with the experiment. Among
the witnesses were Dr. Burton Hasel-
tine, of Chicago, Dr. William H. Phil-
lips, of Cleveland, Dr. J. R. McCleary,
of Cincinnati, and Dr. I. O. Denman,
of Toledo.
SPECIALI STUDENT POLICY
The man today who does not be-
lieve ii life insurance protection is
as rare as the man who does not be-
lieve in gravitation. There still re-
mains the problem, however, what
form of policy will in the long run
most nearly meet the need of the stu-
dent. We have a special proposition
for students. Let us get together and
talk it over. Harry Bacher, 516. E.
