INFLUENCE OF TAILORS' UNION
THOUGHT RESPONSIBLE FOR
Coblewg, Jan. 9. - Overseas marks
of service and Sam Browne belts are
soon to be cast into the discard if the
new military order from Washington
which forbids the embarking of sold-
iers from foreign ports wearing them
is strictly adhered to. Many army
men are now wondering if the Inter-
national Tailors' union has had any-
thing to do with issuing of the order.
According to officers' consulted, the
discarding of Sam Browne belts will
force the purchase of new uniforms
either on the other side or immedi-
ately after landing in America and
this is the reason for the insinuation
that the Tailors' union was in a
measure responsible for the order.
Insignia Regarded as Honor
Doughboys landing in this country
feel it their privilege to wear the
insignia of their divisions which
stamps them as veterans of Euro-
pean battle fields. To discard these
together with their overseas caps will
place them in the same class with
those unfortunates who failed to get
overseas and while they do not look
down on the latter, they feel that to
take away the outward marks of their
service will be a rank injustice and
show of ingratitude for the service
which they have rendered their coun-
A small red "I" is proudly worn
by each member of the First Division
while the Second shows no less pride
in the star and Indian head device
which they wear on the arm. Gaudy
black and white stripes are the out-
ward sign to one versed in military
matters that their wearer is a mem-
ber of the famous Third Division. The
Rainbow Division is hardly mistakable
with all the colors blazing on their
arms, while our own Thirty-second,
composed of Michigan men, wears an
arow device to show that it has been
at the point of every attack.
Doubt Observance of Order
Whether the order will be strictly
observed is being greatly questioned
in military circles, as is its wis-
dom, for it will certainly be the
means of sending"the doughboys home
with an unmistakable grouch.
Masques will give its first play of
the year at the Women's league party
to be held at 3:30 o'clock this after-
noon. "The Kleptomaniac" is the title
of the comedy which will give Masque
stars a chance to display their talents.
The plot of the playlet is lively and
bright and the cast, coached by Hilda
Hagerty, '19, are puttingreal spirit
into the lines. The names of the
cast and their respective roles fol-

In addition to the play, dancing will
be enjoyed and refreshments will be
served in the parlors of the gym. The
advisory board will serve refreshments
and hope to receive an unusually large
crowd at this first party of the year.
