New York, March 1.-Today was the
first of Germany's new submarine cam-
paign and it saw very few vessels of
the belligerents within the U-boat zone
of the Mediterranean, the French or
British coasts.
The day was marked by one import-
ant change .in transatlantic conditions
made by the International Mercantile
Marine, although that organization de-
nied that the change was due in any
respect to the new danger.
A circular letter was sent today to

Complete returns for the second
night's canvass in the Union life mem-
bership campaign showed the acquisi-
tion of 175 more names, or a gain of,
13 over the'number secured Tuesday
evening. The two night's canvass has
added 341 members to the Union's
campus list.
All canvassing last night was re-
stricted to the fraternity houses, al-
though some finished their calls upon
the independents who were supposed
to have been seen the first night. The
success, almost equal to that of Tues--
day night, shows that the appreciation,
of the Union's efforts are not con-
fined to the men whom many think
will profit the most - by the proposed
building, but that the fraternity men
are vitally interested as are the In-
Staats Abrams, '17E, general chair-
man of this campaign, has deemed it
advisable for the canvassing to be-
gin at noon today, since many of the
committeemen have back calls to make
up. By working this noon, and start-
ing again at 6:30 o'clock and canvass-
ing until 10:00 o'clock, it is expected
that every solicitor will have seen ev-j
ery man assigned to him. The com-
plete returns will be at the Union about
10:30 o'clock tonight.
The Union has added as a special
inducement to the canvassers a trip

est individual solicitor and also for
