Another Michigan tradition has gone
by the boards! For those who cannot
hark back that far, the fact is that the
new Union was never to have the light
footsteps of milady pass over the
threshold. The air was never to be
changed from the aroma of bygone
smokes to the faint fragrance of Dfer
Kiss. The old bar of the Orient which
was placed there for a soft drink
counter was never to have Georgette
crepe elbows grace its polished sur-
face. The foot rail which has oft sup-
ported a 12EE shoe was never des-
tined to support a French heeled

this was all shattered when a bevy

bar was an object of especial interest
and hard cider was dispensed to
quench the feminine thirst.
Then the exploration began. They

INQUIRIES SHOULD BE TAKEN
TO HOSTESS HOUSE IN
Owing to the number of unnecessary
questions which have been asked at
personnel headquarters concerning
the S. A. T. C. men, the following an-
nouncement has been given out:
"It has become necessary to bring
before the campus in general and those
desirous of personal information about
S. A. T. C. in particular, that the pur-
pose of the Hostess House is to an-
swer questions about S. A. T. C. nien
concerning their location or health.
"The personnel. office at S. A. T. C.
headquarters deals withathe clerical
work pertaining to military matters.
It keeps the records of the S. A. T.
C. men. To it is entrusted the task of
assigniing men to barracks. It sees
that the men receive their proper se-
rial numbers from their local draft
boards. It makes up the pay rolls
and takes care of the monthly re-
turns. In short, this office is kept ex-
tremely busy with the administrative
end of the military work at head-
quarters, and hence it is unreasonable
to require its officials to interrupt
their work by answering questions;
concerning the location of the vari-j

Up to date there have been IT
deaths from influenza and pneumonia
in the city since the disease broke out
here five weeks ago. Fifty-nine of-
these deaths were among S. A. T. C.
and naval unit men. The remaining
58 occurred among the civilian popu-
Influenza as an epidemic is over in
this city, is the belief of both city and
military health authorities. Only two
deaths occurred as a result of influ-
enza since last Saturday and but four
new cases have been discovered.
University Hospital Nurse Dies
The two deaths which resulted
from influenza since Saturday occur-
red early Sunday morning. Mrs. Ber-
tha Wagner, of 1202 Packard road, and
Miss Alice Spencer, a nurse in the
training class of the University hos-
pital, are the deceased..
Miss Spencer had been in training
at the hospital for over a year. Her
home was in Battleboro, Vt. Her
mother arrived here in time to see
her before her death.
No New Cases In S. A. T. C.
There have been no deaths and no
new cdses in the S. A. T. C. in the
past four or five days. Many men are
being discharged from the infirmaries
every day., Few serious cases of
pneumonia still remain and only one
convalescent patient has had a relapse
since Saturday. ,
The public schools opened today
after an 11 day recess with only three
teachers absent: Physicians examined
the pupils but found none with any'
traces of influenza. Dr. J. A. Wessin-
ger said yesterday that theaters and
other public gathering places would

BIBLE MEETINGS HELD SUN-
DAY AT S. A. T. C. BARRACKS
Twenty Bible discussion groups met
at the various barracks Sunday morn-
ing with a total attendance o more
than 600. The largest attendance at
any meeting was 88 at Barracks 2.

er breakfast and continued for half
an hour. The men are studying "The.
Soldier's Spirit," by George Stewart.
The classes were conducted by mem-
bers of the faculty, business men, stu-
dent pastors, ministers, and Y. M. C.
It is hoped that the membership
may be increased to 1,000 next Sun-
day. Attendance is purely voluntary,
and membership is confined to the S.
A. T. C. and the naval unit.
