THE MICHIGAN DAILY
AT THE ARCADE
"Another 'olly of: the Circus'!" is
what the-national board of review said
after they had witnessed the screen-
ing of "The Racing Strain," which
features Mae Marsh and is to be seen,
at the Arcade theater today and to-
morrow. Others say that she appears
in the same type of a role that first
won her international fame in Griffith's
"Birth of a Nation." "The Racing
Strain" is a racetrack romance of
Kentucky. Mae Marsh has the part
of a plucky Southern girl who defies
fate and fortune in winning love and
happiness. ,A thrilling horse race
photographed at the Saratoga race-
track is one of the exciting scenes in
the picture. It's a Goldwyn picture.
ORATORICAL CONTEST PLANS
FINISHED, MANY TO COMPE'l '
A large number of orators are ex-j
pected to compete in the Northern'
Oratorical contest this year, according!
to Mr. F. K. Immel, of the oratory de-
partment. Many orations are in and
more are expected in the near future.
Representatives are being entered
from the literary and oratorical 'so-'
cieties of the campus. Information
concerning this contest can be ob-
tained from, Mr. Immel.
Ready for Call'
No volunteer student fire depart-
ment system is in vogue in the Uni-
versity. Instead, to protect its build-
ings and those adjacent from fire, the
University maintains a complete de-
partment which co-operates with the
local one in extinguishing campus
fires.= This department is manned
by employes of the buildings and
Since the early days of the col-
lege, the campus fire department has
been a well organized institution. To-
day record time is made in reaching
fires and the department's good repu-
tation is still maintained.
By a system of siren signals fires
on any part of the campus are lo-
cated. The department then leave
their work immediately and hurry to
the fire where they report to the cap-
talus of their various sections. Beside
ladder, axe, and hose men, there are
utility, police, and salvaging crews.
To avoid confusion in obeying or-
ders, the chief of the department and
crew captains wear white coats. Aides
to captains wear black ones with a
white circle on the breast
handdrawn hose carts. A quantity
of hose is also kept in the buildings
and grounds department. In the bse-
ment of the mechanical engineering
laboratory there are two high press-
ure pumps, one steam, the other elec-
trically driven. These pumps connectE
with hydrants over the campus.-
Fire drills are beld twice a year.
