and the need for Red Cross service is
as great as ever. The great war did
not put an end to the world's misery,
although it may have relieved our own
particular present share of .it. And
the duty of helping the other fellow, no
matter how far away or different from
ourselves he may be, is as urgent and
as worth while in the performance as
ever, and, like washing one's face, it
cannot be done once and for all.
We of the University of Michigan
have celebrated the close of the world
tragedy with noise and jubilation and
feelings of thankfulness. We are go-
ing back to the life we love, the Uni-
versity of the old days, instead of try-
ing to live the impossible dual exist-
ence of the student-soldier.
We and our families are planning
the biggest and merriest home-coming
we have known in years, and there
will be no end of fellowship and gen-
erosity and Christmas self-forgetful-
ness-among ourselves. We are tell-
ing ourselves that we wouldlike to
extend our happiness to the whole
world. Now comes the Red Cross and
offers to make real what would oth-'
erwise be a passing emotion of bene-
ficence. Will we, Michigan students,
by shortsightedness or carelessness,
fail to take the chance when it comes
to us, 'to help put a little of Christ-
mas into every day of the year for
the needy of the world? We are not
true Michigan men and women if we
They tell us that the German White
Book is to be published in two or three
volumes. Experience with the Mich-
iganensian leads us to expect not more
than one, however.

Tub'em Well, Say
London - (Correspondence of the
Associated Press) .-A moving picture
audience in bath tubs through which
warm water flows is the entertain-
ment oddity provided in film shows
by the American Y. M. C. A. at the
hospital under the shadows of King's
college, Cambridge, where vounded
men from France are treated. In one
ward certain of the patexns who have
had very serious, septic wounds are
having the water treatment.
To look at these men one night
think they were lying comfortably in
ben propped up with pillows. They
are really sitting in bath tubs in wat-
er to their waists. A constant stream
of water with a temperature of niney-
eight is kept running through the tub,
purifying and cleansing the wounds,
which have no oter dressing. A
kind or magnified lap-board covers
the top of the tub, and is min turn co-
Bred by a long, bright p atch quit.
And thereth m >en sit on air cushon
leaning against air pillo es, da a:
night, sometimcs for-weeks at a time.
Only the most serious cases are put
into these baths, n:en who otherwise
have little chance of recovery and
none without the amputation of a
limb. But never yet has a case so
treated been lost.
"It's beastly unconiforable the first
week," said the record case of the
ward, a British Toninmy who was for
11 weeks in the bath. -"Your ls
ache, and you have the jyiatr rush.
But in a week, at most, you get over
that, and then it is imore comfort-
able than being in bed. In fact, after
they put you back in bed you can't
sleep for a while, it's so hard.
The American Y. 2l. C. A. has been
sending these men "movies" twice a
week. A screen has been arranged
at one end of the hut and there all the
screen favorities play their parts
while the men sit comfortably in their
warm tubs And when the show is
over all they have to do is to turn
out the lights and go to sleep.
T. W. C. A. WILL NOT VA C A T E1
llAmRiOLR (T M UNTIL 1919
It was decided yesterday that the
Unversity Y. W. C. A. will remain
at Barbour gymnasium the rest of
this year. The expense of moving
would be considerable, and the two
N omen's organizations have worked
so well together the past months, giv-
ing mutual support, that it was deem-
ed advisable, if not better, for the
Y. W. C. A. to remain where it is. The
space in the gymnasium that the Y
is .occupying is not needed for other
purposes at present and the location
has been exceedingly satisfactory.
There will be no lunch room con-
nected with the Y. W. C. A., the Inn
at Lane hall serving that purpose. It
is under the direction of the S. C. A.
and is open to both men and women.
When the Y inn- was moved from
Newberry to Lane hall last summer
it increased its function and the of-
ficers of the University Y. W. C. A.
think it unnecessary to have another
one at Barbour gymnasium.

PASSING OF THE S. A. T. C. I
!n the opinion of many the S. A.
''. C. was more or less of a failure,
while in that of perhaps as many
others, it was a success And a suc-
cess it was, in that it accomplished
its purpose, which, according to a
letter from the war department, was
to allow college students to continue
their scholastic work and at the same
tine prepare themselves along mili-
tary lines, so that they would be ready
when needed by the government, and
tl- supply officer material.
The last of these it did without
question, as many men had left for
-olicers' training camps and were do-
ing the work very creditably. Others
had already been chosen, in fact, were
all ready to leave for such camps,
when the armistice was signed. In
addition there were many who would
have been recommended for later
As to whether the men, were able
to continue their scholastic work
there is some questin. Undoubtedly,
at first men were cmpelled to miss
a large number of their classes, but
this was due more to the influenza
epidemic than to the military organi-
zation. As the epidemic subsided and
arrangements to fit the new condi-
tions were made, the absences from
classes diminished and more time for
study was allowed. After Influenza
disappearedthe work of the S. A. T.
C adcome to coincide well enough
with the academic so that it was sel-
dom, necessary for a man to miss
glasses more than once in 10 days,
and it was usually possible for him to
attend part of his classes even on that
Whpn the compulsory study rule
went into effect, men did not com-
plain of too little time to study, but
too much. Even for four or five weeks
before this the men had sufficient
time during the day to themselves to
prepare their scholastic work if they
It was even demonstrated by cer-
tan men in the S. A. T. C. it was
possible, if one had suf Icient desire,
to keep up with college work and
not neglect military duties.
Now that the men are discharged
most of them agree that they are at
least glad to haye gone through the
experience and will always look back
upon the time spent in the S. A. T.
C. with pleasant memories.
As a permanent institution, it is
clear that the S. A. T. C. idea is an
impossible one, but in an emergency
it served its purpose.
THE CHRISTMAS ROLL CALL
With the slogan of "All you need
is a heart and a dollar" the Red Cross
begins today its Christmas Roll Call
campaign. Some time before you go
home you are going to be asked to
join this organization, which more
than any other has alleviated the hor-
rors and suffering caused by the great
war. Perhaps you have joined the
Red Cross before, and perhaps you
have supported it generously by con-
tributions while the war was on, but
your mxership may have run out,
Grand Duchess Anastasie of Meck-
lenburg-Schwerin says that Germnany
blundered. Now the kaiser is sure
to commit suicide.
Better make those payments on
your bonds. Then when you read the
announcements of the fifth loan you
"won't be bothered."
SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA TO BE
ORGANIZED AFTER VACATION
Efforts will be made to' re-estab-
lish the Symphony orchestra imme-
diately after the Christmas holidays.
This is not a strictly student organi-
zation, since any person in any way
connected with the University may
secure a place in it if they have the
Students who wish to try out for
it should bring their instruments
with them after the holidays as a call
will be made for material directly
upon the re-opening of the University.
The symphony orchestra, along
with many other activities, had to be
abandoned this fall because of war
time conditions. Now that things are
more normal those who had it in
charge . in former years believe that
it can be successfully organized again.
In former years it has made success-
ful appearances at the twilight con-
certs of the School of Music.
