THE MICHIGAN DAILN

rosh, Call Ypsi
A big van full of furniture hurried
eastward on Washington street about
8 o'clock Thursday morning. On its
face it seems a bald, matter of fact
statement. But that van means a
good deal to a bunch of eager young
students on this campus.
This summer the fraternities rented
their houses to the University for bar-
racks, and stored their furniture. All
this fall the Greek letter men have
lived a military life themselves. Rows
of bunks filled the dining rooms. Hob
nailed issue shoes dealt as they would
with former dancing floors. Well kept
lawns became muddy exercise grounds.
Soldiers taking out cots to be aired
thoughtfully knoeked plaster off the
Meanwhile the Greek letter men liv-
ed a military life themselves. They
arose at daybreak. They tended fur-
naces and did K. P. They washed
windovls and secubbed floors. For fra-
ternitt life they went back to chapter
custom of 40 years ago and rented
rooms about town..
- But that is all over. Their eyes
shine as they think 'of separate rooms,
and suites, a porter watching the fur-
nace, and real china. They dream of
satisfying idleness before grate fires,
of house parties. So with the ink
still wet on their discharge papers,
they 'phone for the furniture and be-
gin to hang the curtains. Back to the

SONG IN Y. M. C. A. HUT BRINGS
MANY PROPOSALS TO SINGER
Paris (Correspondence of the Asso-
ciated Press). - Miss Helen Besler,
daughter of the president of the Cen-
tral railroad of New Jersey, is proba-
bly the most proposed-to girl in
France today. It all came about be-
cause one night in one of the Ameri-
can camps she ran out of "encores,"
and sang a little nursery song call-
ed, "If No One Ever Marries Me." It
goes like this:
"If no one ever marries me,-
And I don't see why they should,
For Nurse says I am not pretty,
And I'm seldom very good,-"
The direful fate of the little girl in
the song was to be to buy a rabbit-
hutch and live all alone jn a little
wood. But the American soldiers saw
no reason why Miss Besler, who is
pretty and "petite" and a typical
American girl, should have a similar
lot. After they had given her the
three cheers and a tiger t with which
they usually thank the Y. M. C. A.
entertainers, they hesitated a moment
and then added a purely personal
"Barkis is willin'," called the A. E.
F., as one man.
Since then the incident has been
repeated in every American camp MissI
Besler has visited. No censor would
allow an estimate of the number of
proposals she received in that way to

Ground will be broken for the new
University hospital early in the spring
according to Dr. Parnall, the hospit-
al superintendent. The plans are all
drawn for the exterior and the in-
terior arrangement is well under way.
The contract has been let to Han and
company, the same contractors who
put up the Natural Science building
and are now erecting the new Library.
Plan of Building Unique
The new hospital will be located
just east of the psychopathic hospital
on the same side of the street and
in front of the contagious hospital.
It is proposed to make the building
as light and airy as possible and the
plan of the building is very unique. A
long main corridor will run parallel
to the street and the ends will branch
out like huge "Y's." From the mid-
die of the main corridor a shorter one
will extend toward the north with one
of equal size at the end of this one
and at right angles to it.
Stories May Be Added Later
As the building will be on a hill, the
first part to be erected will be three
stories high in front and five in the
rear. A two story general office will
be in front of the main corridor and
directly connected with it. The foun-
dation will be constructed for a build-
ing that will eventually be eight to ten
stories in height. The material used
will be the same as is in the Natural
The first of the two extra floors in
the building will be a store room and
general headquarters for thehdining
room and kitchen and the help. At
the back, in the wing that runs par-
allel to the main corridor, there will
be a number of clinical laboratories.
The second floor of this part will be
given over exclusively to the patholog-
ical department of the Medical school,
with a complete equipment necessary
for such work. In the front of the
second floor will be the examining
room, the waiting rooms. offices for
two house physicians and rooms for
the care of ambulance cases.
Patients Go to Observation Floor
Above this is what will be known as
the observation floor. This is for the
patients after their entrance and will
be divided into departments only to
facilitate the complete examination of
the cases until a diagnosis can be
made. They will then be assigned to
the proper ward on the floor above.
At the back, inthe teaching part of
the building the X-ray department
will have its offices and equipment.
The second main floor will be divid-
ed into wards. The main corridor
will have a share in keeping of perm-
anent records of all patients that en-
ter. The short corridor will accom-
modate surgical patients, as will also
the corridor in the teaching part. This
will have an amphitheater at one end.
Old Hospital for Convalescents
The third main floor will be given
over to the larger clinics and the
teaching part will have six small op-
erating rooms with balconies between
adjacent rooms, a library, a lounging
room for doctors, for nurses, and for
students, and the sterilizing room.
As the hospital is expanded the dif-
ferent departments will be given larg-
er space as their enrollment demands.
The old hospital as soon as the pat-
ients have all been transferred to the
new structure, will be used as a con-
valescent hospital for out-patients. It
is not known what will be done with
it later when the entire new hospital
has been built.
To Be Largest in Country
By spring, $700,000 will have been
appropriated for the work and the
rest will come in annual installments.
This hospital when completed will
be the largest teaching hospital in the
country and will be unlike any other
in its arrangement as the plans were
not completed until many of the good
hospitals of the country had been in-
spected and the good parts of these
incorporated into one structire.

your new address unless you
notify the Circulation depart-
ment of the change.

E. Naylor, ex-'19P, Returns Home
Earl Naylor, ex-'19P, who has been
in France since last summer with the
chemical warfare division, is now at
his home on E. Liberty street on a
hospital leave. While in France he
was gassed three times through acci-
dents, and upon reaching New York
six weeks ago he contracted influenza,
which later developed into pneumonia.
He was then confined to the Bronx
hospital, New York, for three weeks.
Although he had to report there yes-
terday he expects a final discharge
soon, and will probably re-enter the
University in February.
