THE MICHIGAN DAIHA

NEFIT BOOTHS fOR0
BEL6IAN BABIES APPEAR

MILK BOTTLE STANDS TO
PLACED FOR RELIEF FUND

BE

Attractive milk-bottle stands for
voluntary contributions to the Belgian
Relief fund have made their appear-
ance in the city and will be 'placed
in different establishments. This re-
lief work is under the auspices of the
Gamnia Phi Beta National sorority,
whose headquarters are in Chicago,
and this is the only organization which
has the authorization of 10he Belgian
minister at Washington, Baron de
Cartier, to collect money in this man-
ner.
The stands were originally adopted
by the California Committee for Bel-
gian Relief and proved to be such a
successful source of income that the
committee felt that it should be made
a national movement rather than a
local one, and through the influence
of Mrs. Vernon Kellogg, secretary of
the California committee, who was the
only woman member of the Belgian Re-
lief commission, the work was rele-
gated to the Gamma Phi Beta Soror-
ity of which Mrs. Kellogg is a mem-
ber.
The plan is eventually to have
stands of this kind in every 'city of
any size in the United States. Local
chairmen, /usually members of this
sorority, will have charge of the col-
lections, which will be turned over
to the state chairmen, and by them
to the district chairman and the
money will then be turned over to the
National treasurer who will forward
the same to the Belgian authorities.
It is the ultimate hope of the sorority
to establish a Gamma Phi Beta shel-
ter at the Hague for Belgian Refu-
gees, which will be under the charge
of Countess Van den Steen, an inti-
mate friend of Mrs. Kellogg's.
No house to house solicitations will
be made and any one representing
himself as a worker for this fund will
be known to be an impostor.
PLANES TO CARRY
MAIL ACROSS SEA

Campus tolienefit
by Military Life
"If the University will benefit by
the lessons taught it by being used as
an army and navy cantonment, it will:
be a wonderful thing for the town,"
said Lieut. Allen L. Porter, medical
officer of the University unit.
Together with Major Ralph H. Dur-
ke; and Capt. G. W. Putt, he has done:
a great deal toward making more
sanitary conditions here. Between
18 and 25 men used to report to the
infirmary every day. Now there are
seldom mbre than five or six.
The canteens and restaurants
around the campus were ordered to
clean up if they wished to be allow
ed to have soldier and sailor trade.
They complied immediately. The navy
mess was bettered through Lieut. Por-
ter's efforts as was the army mess
through Captain Putt's.
Both the army and navy barracks
have been inspected often to insure
that they are kept clean and saui.-
tary.

GERMAN PRISONERS
bHOW GOOD SPIRIT
London, Dec. 13.- (Correspondence
of Associated Press).- A German
band at a prison hospital near Lon-
don played the, Star Spangled Ban-
ner and several hundred wounded
German soldiers sang it as if they en-
joyed it in celebration of the signing
of the armistice. The music was in
honor of a parade of American wound-
ed quartered in a hospital near the
prison hospital.
If the sentiment of these prisoners
may be taken as aacriterion, the Ger-
man people will harbor no old scores
against Americans for helping tode-
liver the final blow of the war. They
entered heartily into the armistice
celebration and were glad the war had
ended.
Soon after news of the signing of
the armistice was received at the big
American hospital at Dartford it was
sent over to the Germans, whose pris-
on hospital' joins the American estab-
lishment. On the following day every
American able to walk was mustered
into a parade the route of which took
them through the prison grounds. As
the vanguard entered, the German
band- Germans always manage to
scrape up a band wherever a large*
number of them are quartered-began
playing the anthem of the U. S. A.
and the Germans sang it as the hap-
py Americans passed. They were hap-
py too and showed no animosity to-
ward the Americans.

(By Associated Press)
London, Dec. 12.-"Within a very
reasonable period we shall find all
principalamail liners fitted with sea-
planes," asserts D. H. Bernard, edi-
tor of the Merchant Service Review.
"Considerable time will be saved in
the transit of mails. A liner leaving
New York with urgent and important
letters will be able to discharge them
by seaplane 300 to 400 miles west of
the Irish coast; within a few hours
they can be delivered in London, thus
effecting a saving of 24 hours.
"The same procedure can be carried
out by a vessel bound to New York,
weather of course being an important
factor, for in fine and settled weather
a well-equipped seaplane could trav-
el at an enormous speed over a con-
siderable distance. It is quite within
the bounds of possibility that letters
posted in London can be delivered in
New York within four days."
Mr. Bernard thinks the service will
at first be subsidized by the govern-
ments of the two countries. Similar-
ly, he says letters could be expedited
from South America to the European
continent by seaplanes leaving the
liners 300 miles off Lisbon or Gib-
raltar.
Party Planned for Gobs and Nurses
A party principally for naval unit
men and nurses from the University
hospital will be held at the Metho-
dist church tonight, but others will
be equally welcome. Edward Metz,
118E, is chairman and promises plen-
ty of entertainment.

STUDENTS! NOTICE

Every male student in the
kUniversity, civilian as well as
military, is required to re-enroll
with the secretary of his school
or college immediately beginning
with Wednesday, Dec. 11. Start-
ing with this date, civilian stu-
dents should re-register at once,
S. A. T. C. men as soon as dis-
charged, naval unit men as soon
as released. Discharge and re-
lease papers should be brought
and. exhibited.
This is needed because the
demobilization of the S. A. T. C.
and the releasing of the naval
unit men necessitates a change
in status and address and a set-
tlement of fees among most of
the men students.
SHIRLEY W. SMITH,
Secretary of the University.
