Under the new schedule, the year
will be divided into four terms of 12
weeks each. At the end of each term,
one week will be given for examina-
tions. The periods will be two hours
Term credits will be given instead
of semester hours this year. Forty-
five term hours will equal 30 semes-
ter hours. In other words, each term
hour will be worth two-thirds of a
semester hour. No credits will be
lost in this method, and it may be an
advantage'to the students for they will
be able- to take more subjects, thus
covering a larger field.
The government has sent the sched-
ule which each school throughout the
United States that has an organization
of the S. A. T. C. will be obliged to
follow. The schedule is as follows:
First term, Oct. 1 to Dec. 21; secondK
term, Dec. 30 to March 21; third term,:
March 30 to June 21.
This is the same system that Chi-
cago university has observed for
years. Ypsilanti Normal school has
also followed this plan.

President Wilson 's Message
The following message from President Wilson was read at the as-
sembly of the S. A. T. C. yesterday afternoon:
"The step you have taken is a most significant one. By it you
have ceased to be merely individuals, each seeking to perfect him-
self to win his own place in the world, and have become comrades in
the common cause of making the world a better place to live in.
You have joined yourselves with the entire manhood of the country,
and pledged, as did your forefathers, 'your lives, your fortunes and
your sacred honor' to the freedom of humanity.
"The enterprise upon which you have embarked is a hazardous
and difficult one. This is not a war of words; this is 'not a scholas-
tic struggle. It is a war of ideals, yet fought with all the devices of
science and with the power of machines. To succeed you must not
only be inspired by the ideals for which this country stands, but you
must also be masters of the technique with which the battle is fought.;
You must not only be thrilled with zeal for the common welfare, but
you must also be master of the weapons of today.
"There can be no doubt of the issue. The spirit that is revealed'
and the manner in which America has responded to the call is indom-
itable. I have no doubt that you too will use your utmost strength to
maintain that spirit and to carry it forward to the final victory that
will certainly be ours."

F'tudents !Respond
To War Loan Call
Subscriptions for the second day of
te Fourth Liberty Loan campaign
ave passed the first in the students'
roluntary quota." The subscrip-
ons amounted to $1,2550 Monday, and
esterday to $1,450.
It is expected that the figures will
se rapidly nowr that the students are
ttled. The headquarters are located
. Newberry Hall and any student
ishing to give his support and there-
r increase the Washtenaw county
Lm, may do so by buying bonds at
.e hall. The office is open from 2 to
o'clock every afternoon. Mr. R. K.
amel is in charge of the headquar-
rs and Mr. R. M. Carson is taking
re of the publicity. Only the stu-
-nts of the University are permitted
,buy their bonds here.
Of the subscriptions already taken,
large number were purchased by the
udents who enrolled in the Students
my Training corps. Many. turned
rer their entire tuition fees. The
irit of the Michigan men is well ex
essed by such actions as this.
The fact that each student will not
canvassed, leaves them to help
ep the office in Newberry Hall
'owded. One "girl has begun by tak-
g a thousand-dollar bond.



Enrollment figures in the various
schools and colleges of the. Univer-
sity are at the present time somewhat
uncertain and incomplete. The liter-
ary college, as usual, has the largest
enrollment, however.
There are probably 10 per cent less
women in the literary college this
year, according to information given
out by the registrar last night, and 20
per cent more men. Nearly every male
student in the University has joined
the S. A. T. C. and the enrollment will
be around the 4,000 mark, which does
not include the 700 men in the navy.
The enrollment may be erratic
throughout the entire school year, de-
pending entirely on the action of the
government. It is probable that a
large number of men will be taken,
from the University when the first
term is completed, which will make
the enrollment small. Then, after a
month or two, the government may
send in a number of men from the
different cantonments, thereby in-
creasing the enrollment figures.
In 1916-1917 there were 7,500 stu-
dents attending the University, while
in 1917-1918 there were approximate-
ly 6,700 students. Enrollment this
year is nearly equal to that of last
The number of students enrolled in
the engineering college had reached
1,500 by Monday night. This figure is*
50 per cent more than last year's en-
In the dental college 200 had en-'
rolled by Saturday night, and since
then about 75 more have come.-
The Homeopathic Medical school
has an increased enrollment of 20 per
cent. The Medical school has pros-
pects of practically the same enroll-
ment it had a year ago, with fewer up-
perclassmen and more freshmen. The
College of Pharmacy has within one
of the same registration it had a year
ago. The Law school will have about
75 etudens+.
The New York College of Law, the
largest college of law in the United
States, has closed its doors entirely,
while Columbia law school has but 40
students enrolled.
Yank Shipping Wins ,Cargo Record
Paris, Oct. 1. - On one day during
last week Americans discharged 36,917
tons of cargo from ships at all the
ports in France.
During another day they discharged;
11,438 tons at one particular port.
Both are record performances. ,




Fraternities at Michigan are not a
thing of the past as some predicted
when the government occupation of
fraternity houses was announced.
Almost every organization that gave
its house to Uncle Sam 'has rented
rooms for the year, and, a few are ,lo-
cated in smaller houses or chapels.
Almost all fraternity men are enroll-
ed in either the army or navy train-
ing detachments, but a few who are
disqualified are managing the chapter
Meetings Continue
Arrangements have been made so
that the members of each organiza-
tion can get together for at least a
few hours each week. Social gather-
ings will probably be features of Sat-
urday and Sunday afternoons. Most
organizations are continuing to hold
their business meetings regularly, the
time being set for during the vacant
hours or afternoons off duty.
Rushing and pledging of freshmen
is being carried on this year as al-
ways and a number of pledge buttons
are being worn on the campus. Only
two or three chapters have been dis-
continued temporarily, but they still
have members on the campus. Prob-
ably no fraternity will definitely sus-
pend its Michigan chapter.
National Organization Hit
The national organizations of all
fraternities have been more or less se-
riously hit by the new training sys-
tem introduced in every university in
the country. The national governing
bodies will remain intact in organiza-
tion but their personnel is changing
continually. Some executives are past
the army age limit, but many have not
been thus disqualified. All the younger
men have been called or have volun-
Some fraternities have let the absent
officers retain their positions, but a
number have replaced absent execu-
tives. The business is being carried
on in some way by all the organiza-
tions. Few chapters have been com-
pletely disbanded.
Initiate Early
Initiations will come early this year,
according to present indications. The
new men will be taken into active
membership as early as possible so
that the chapters will not be split up
by unexpected calls for service in
Classes in the literary college be-
gan yesterday and will continue, in
spite of a rumor to the contrary, Dean
J. R. Effinger stated last evening.

Students Use New
Union. .Mess - Hall
Sammies and Jackies of the Univer-
sity, newly made fighters for Uncle
Sam, were treated to their first meal
by the'government last night when the
freshly formed Students Army Train-
ing corps had mess in the new Mich-
igan Union building and a specially
built mess hall at the rear.
Use New Hall
Two thousand of the fighters were
quartered for the one meal, in the
new mess hall at the rear, while the
big dancing pavilion on the second
floor of the new building furnished
room for the remainder. Special in-
terest in the completeness of the can-
tonment style of mess hal in the rear
of the Michigan Union building was
evidenced by the military men, when
for the first time they felt the appre-
ciation of their own work. A record
in the building of such halls was
made by the army mechanics stationed
here, when they completed it in but
two days.
The navy boys, numbering close to
500, were messed in the natatorium,
having the same fare as the army men.
Officers Have Room
A special officers' mess is maintain-
ed on the first floor of the building,
where more than 50 of the commis-
sioned men stationed here are fed.
Special arrangements are being
made -for a new way of handling the
social interest of the school, accord-
ing to Mr. Francis Bacon of the
Union, who is in charge of such work.
Special attention is to be paid to sold-
iers, but according to Mr. Bacon, those
who are not in uniform will not be
slighted. More complete announce-
ments will be made later.
A canteen service and lounging
room is also maintained at the Union.
How To A cquire
A Collegiate Air
While swimming around to register,
keep the long blue registration blank
carefully concealed in some inner
pocket, so that when you are obliged
to extract it you will have the chance
to display a dandy lingering nonchal-
ance and high school fraternity pins.
Purchase a felt hat, tear out the sweaf
band, jump energetically upon the re-
mainedr and thereafter refer lovingly
to the pulp as "my old party hat."
If you possess any socks of the un-
popular black shade, take them to any
city laundry (names furnished on re-
quest accompanied by a special deliv-
ery stamped letter) and have them
bleached to a delft blue. It is not nec-
essary to explain your desires to the
laundry; it will understand and go
right ahead anyway. While on the
street, walk with a scad of companions
in mass formation if possible. Never
under any circumstances break this
formation; if you knock a leddy into
the gutter and she murmurs "He's
a Sigma Kappa Delta," know that she
means it as a compliment.j

R. E. Hawley, junior medical stu-
dent, made a study in Boston this fall
of how persons nursing influenza may
protect themselves. Gauze masks are
a positive necessity. He gives the fol-
lowing, as the method used in Bos-
ton, to those wishing protection in the
sick room:
Use as fine gauze or cheese cloth as
possible. Fold material to make five
thicknesses, and cut an oblong 9 1-2
by 7 1-2 inches. Make three half-inch
plaits at each end, turn in edges and
stitch. Cut four feet of tape into four
lengths and sew one to each corner.
Make box plait 1 1-2 inches in one of
the long edges of the work, and stitch
down one inch;
To adjust, place mask over face; tie
tapes from upper corners around back
of head, and tape from lower corners
around back of neck. Place box plait
over the nose.
Masks should be worn by attend-
ants whenever caring for those sick
with influenza, or pneumonia. They
should be changed at two-hour inter-
vals and oftener if wet. They should
immediately be boiled for 15 minutes,
or burned. If not convenient to boil
at once, wrap securely in a paper bag,
or newspaper. -
