Students from Entire Country to Take
Part in Summer Drills; Harvard
and Yale Represented



Thousands of college men from all
parts of the United States are en-
rolling for the military training camps
to be held this summer.
Harvard has a regiment of 1,070
men now drilling preparatory to going
to the camps, and these, in combina-
tion with several hundred students
from Yale and 400 or 500 from Prince-
ton will form the trained nucleus
around which the remaining men are
to gather at the different sectional
training points.
The original Plattsburg camps will
continue on Lake Champlain, the first
one opening on June 5, and continu-
ing until July 2. Four other camps
will follow, at that place, lasting until
October 5.
The "Plattsburg Idea"
This year, the student camp move-
ment has become merged in what is
known as the "Plattsburg Idea" in
which the students' training camps
have been merged with the business
men's camps under the name of the
Military Training Camps association
of the United States. Under this gov-
ernment, the first camp will be at
Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia.
Sectional training stations are to be
situated at San Antonio, Texas; Mon-
terey, California; Salt Lake City, Utah,
and American Lake, Washington. Oth-
er camps may be announced later. It
is estimated that the undergraduate
attendance at these stations this sum-
mer will aggregate at least 30,000
During the past summer, 92 per cent
of the 2,000 men enrolled in the train-
ing camps at Plattsburg were college
students. In the other camps the per-
centage was equally high. D. J. Kay,
executive secretary of the association,
who is receiving enrollments from un-
dergraduates at his office, 31 Nassau
street, New York, is assigning them to
the stations in their respective sec-
tions. These enrolments are not
binding if it is later found impossible
to attend.
Hope to Foster Patriotism
The general purpose of the camps
is to foster a patriotic spirit and
spread among the citizens of the coun-
try some knowledge of military his-
tory, military policy, and military
needs, and to instill the habits of
obedience, discipline, command and
self control.
Duriig the five weeks' outing, a
clear insight into military matters is
given by rinstruction in drill, cavalry
exercises, field maneuvers, field sur-
veying and field work. Ample time is
given on the schedule for recreation
and rest.
Students pay $22.50 for mess for the
camp period of five weeks. A deposit
of $5.00 is required to cover loss or
damage to the government property
used. About $10.00 is required for
the uniform and personal equipment.
Other expenses are met by the gov-
Das Gupta, Former Michigan Student,1
Halted by British at Hong Kong
While enroute to India in the in-
terest of educational work among his
own people, Juanada Charan Das Gup-
ta, '13, was intercepted by British au-
thorities at Hong Kong and requisi-
tioned for army service in France.1
Mr. Das Gupta received his B. S. in
pharmacy in 1913, and left for De-
troit, where he was employed by The
Lambert & Lowman company, manu-
facturing pharmacists. He then re-
turned to Ann Arbor to do graduate
work. After considerable delay he:

succeeded in getting a passport from
government authorities to return to
India. No word has been received by
the faculty of the College of Phar-
macy as to the final disposition of his

Just One More Revolution!
San Antonio, Tex., April 18.-Gen.
Antonio I. Villareal is attempting to
start a new revolution against the
Carranza governnient, according to a
report received today by Consul Gen-i
eral Beitran from Melquiades Garcia,
Mexican consul at Laredo.

Editor, The Michigan Daily:
The family of President Angell were
greatly touched by the honor and re-
spect shown by the hundreds of young
men and women who lined the streets!
between the house and the cemetery
on Monday. They are deeply grateful
to the student body who joined in send-
ing the beautiful pall of roses, and
to the Glee club, whose singing of the
Laudes Atque Carmina added so great-
ly to the impressiveness of the service.
Since we have no other way of
reaching the students as a whole, will
you kindly give our feeling expression
in your paper?
Superintends First Set Ever Compiled
by Census Bureau About
Expection of Life
Prof. James W. Glover has been su-1
pervising the preparation of the firstI
set of tables ever compiled by the
census bureau on the subject of ex-
pection of life.
These tables were made from sta-
tistics obtained from ten states and'
the District of Columbia and show the a
death rates and life expection at all
ages, classified by races, within this
territory on the basis of the popula-
tion at the last census and the mor-
tality for the three years of 1909, 1910,
and 1.911.
In the preparation it was discov-.
ered that the average female lives
three years longer than the male. It
was also found that one out of twenty'
boys and one out of every twenty-five
girls dies during the first year of its

Mountain Climbing in Oregon

How would you like to see your dog
go over a bluff to his death after the
glacier across which you were travel-
ling had been jerked from its foun-
dation and you realized you must
suffer the same fate as that of the
animal? Read how E. L. Demmond,
'16, went through this thrilling expe-
"I had been appointed by the Unit-
ed States government, along with five
other foresters, to make a survey map
of Wallowa national forest in the Blue
mountains of Oregon, considered the
roughest part of the Northwest. Al-
though it was the middle of July, there
was perpetual snow.
"We had been surveying for about
three weeks and had just about com-
pleted our map, when one day we
had an accident that nearly made one
less student in the University of Michi-
gan this year. We were surveying
Mount Ella peak, the highest point in
the Blue mountains and the only por-
tion we had not yet surveyed, It was
about 2:00 o'olool in the afternoon
and we were just congratulating our-
selves on our success, when suddenly
the very ground under us gave a vio-
lent jump and the glacier, a half-
mile wide, swayed back and forth, upi
setting us and sending us down the
mountain side at a terrific speed.
"A thousand feet down the. canyon
was a bluff. To go over this meant
certain death. It lay directly in Our
path. The hobnails in my shoes,
along with the weight of the transit,
which had been entrusted to me, re-
tarded my acceleration somewhat, wIth
the result that I was the last of the
five in our mad race down the side
of the mountain. My comrades and
our - dog, tumbling head over heels,
were moving even faster than the'
"About eight hundred feet down the
canyon, the other foresters succeeded

in grabbing onto a huge rock, which
projected up over the glacier. Look-
ing down the mountain side, I saw our
faithful dog go over the bluff. As I
lay in the dog's path, death seemed
certain for me. My path lay about
eight feet from the rock on which my
comrades were stranded, so I could
not reach that. But as I swerved down
the mountain, accelerating speed, I
took a long chance and failed. Un-i
strapping the transit from my body,
I grabbed the end of it and extended
it to the right. As I swung near my
comrades, they grabbed the other end
of the transit.
"A little flame of hope took fire only
to be quenched. The terrific speed
at which I was going made it In-
possible for me to hang on to ny;
end of the transit. To escape the fate
of the dog seemed absurdity.
"Smaller and smaller grew the dis-
tance between me and the bluff. Sud-
denly there loomed up in front of
me a large rock, similar to that which
my comrades had rescued themselves.

owing to the hugeness of the rock, it
completely stopped my locomotion.:

was lying in my bunk in thelog cabin,
with the doctor of our outfit bending
over me. He informed me I had been

-- New York, April 18.-The impend-
ing French loan, it was authoritative-
ly learned to day, will not be backed
by any obligation of the French gov-
ernment. The collateral that will un-
derlie the loan, the amount and in-
terest rate of which are yet to be de-
termined, will consist of securities of
neutral countries.
In effect, the French government is
endeavoring to mobilize securities in
these neutral countries in much the
same manner that the British treas-
ury mobilized American securities.
Delay in the completion of negoti-
ations is partly due to the fact that
the securities to be so mobilized are
not payable or negotiable in dollars,
as is most of the collateral which the
British government has been utiliz-
ing to effect further commercial cred-
its and stabilize sterling exchange in
this country.

which is being furthered by many uni-
