OHENZOLLERN TURNS HAMLET
Investigators of abnormal psychol-
gy have been provided with a story
at should get them on ther mettle.
iliam Hohenzollern, so say reports
om Copenhagen, which received Old
oc Cook so cordially, has attempted
Send his life. It may not be a true
ory, but it is a good one; it gives
)portunity for such endless philosb-
hisings originating nearer the tip of
e tongue than the cerebellum.
"Why, that doesn't surprise me at
1," runs one line of talk. " It was
eatrical and the ex-kaiser has al-
ays been theatrical. How the
ighty have fallen, and how fit for
m to end his life when his power
as broken and his pomp and circum-
ances things of the past!"
Then may be heard the typical law-
ar, as well as the lover of poetic
Lastice, bewailing that William Ho-
antollern did not have sufficient
mse of decency to wait and be tried
afore a duly constituted internation-
I tribunal and be properly put to
eath by the public hangman. Also,
e shall hear the sentimentalist, who
ished the German people to 'testify
i their recovery from moral atrophy
Staking William firmly in hand, try-
ows and invalided soldiers, and hav-
ing a German firing squad cause his
demise. Probably that would be the
most dramatic ending to the Hohen-
zollern, and as such should appeal
to a man who rhapsodized over a
daisy when his picked guards were
being slaughtered by the Allied, ma-
chine guns. It may be that if William
Hohenzollern were to be convinced
that his violent death was inevitable,
and if he were given his choice, he
would choose that method of meeting
But, after all, we shall have the peo-
ple who are always ready to throw
cold water on a good story and an-
nounce that they do not believe a
word of it. They will say that the ex-
kaiser never considered anybody but
himself in all his life; that the sys-
tem under which he lived worked with
his own temperament to create in him
paranoiac obsession that he really was
divine, and could do no wrong. Sure-
ly he must have been convinced that
the German people would never turn
against him when those mouthers of
socialistic and brotherhood platitudes,
the subsidized German socialist party
leaders, huzzaed at his name during
the war. They will say that an insane
man would not have sufficient realiza-
tion of his position to comprehend the
horror in which the rest of the world
holds him and that he would see no
need for self-destruction.
They may be the ones to utter that
fond phrase: "I told you so," when

: HOME IN NEW YORK
°Michigan men in the army and navy
who are in or near New York City
may get some Wolverine spirit by
stopping in at 36 West 40th street,
where the University is represented
by the Michigan bureau of military re-
lief. This organization has been in
operation for several months, and is
backed by an appropriation of $5,000,-
000 from the state legislature. It is
the only enterprise of its kind under-
taken by any of the states. The home-
like clubhouse has met with the favor
of all Michigan men in New York and
the rooms are filled constantly, espec-
ially on Saturday. and Sundays.
The coming of peace does not mean
the ending of the bureau's activities,
in fact the main work remains to be
done. Thousands of wounded men
will soon be invalided home, and a
large percentage will undoubtedly be
sent to New York hospitals. The
bureau will undertake to keep in close
touch with these men, and. their
friends and relatives.
Governor Sleeper and Col. C. R.
Vandercook have taken active inter-
est in the enterprise. Stuart H. Per-
ry of Adrian is in charge at present.

According to the latest report -re-
ceived from the alumni cataloguer's
office, 4800 Michigan men are in the
service, This Is far from the entire
number of men in the service, Mr.
H. L. Sensemann, editor general of
the Alumni Catalogue, says. Circulars
are still being received at the office
at the rate of a dozen a day, and
doubtless many of the circulars sent
out have miscarried. In' addition to
this, the men who left last year have
not been circularized. This will be
done as soon as the registration of
last year can be compared with that
of this year and the names of the men
who left ascertained in this way. Mr.
Sensemann estimates that at least
1,000 of the men who did not return
this year are in service.
