NORTHERN RUSS GOVERNMENT
WARNS PEOPLE AGAINST ALARM
Archangel, Jan. 31.-The northern
Russian government in a proclamation
to the population, warns the people
against an unnecessary alarm over
recent events resulting in evacuation
of Sherensky by American and Allied
The proclamation says it was nec-
essary to evacuate because of the
small foroes available for its defense
and also because of the exposed Al-
lied line on this front.
It declares that the northern Russ-
ian government is co-operating with
the Allies to the extent of its ability.
Speedig Must Stop, Says City Chief
"Speeding in the city must stop,"
says Chief of Police O'Brien, and to
emphasize the statement he took a
taxi driver who was caught for speed-
ing, over to the justice of the peace.
The latter agreed with the chief and
fined the individual $15 and costs.
The police motorcycle is once more
in commission and will be seen on
the streets regularly in the future,
says the chief.

GIVE THE "Y" A CHANCE
With the war over and the greater
part of its work finished, the Y. M. C.
A. has come under considerable fire.
Reports come back from "over there"
of not only general inefficiency, but of
graft and profiteering. Wide news-
paper publicity has been given the
charges, and almost anyone's version
can gain front page display.
It has been claimed by an army
chaplain that the nearer the front one
came, the fewer "Y" huts and work-
ers were noticed. Undoubtedly true,
yet it would seem rather natural. Up
in the front line trenches the grim
business of war came first. The "Y"
work must, of necessity, have been ex-
tremely limited there. Entertainment ,
such as were provided behind the lines
in rest billets, hospitals, bases, and
the like, could not be held under act-
Beyond doubt there may have been
some graft in the organization. What
similar enterprise ,or other enterprise
carried on such a large scale, does not
find in its forces unscrupulous schem-
ers prepared to lower shame on the
cause for which they work, if
it bring profit to themselves? And
the "Y" was no exception.
It must be remembered, however,
that much commendation for the "Y"
work in France is also heard. Gen-.
eral Pershing was not at all modest
in his praise.
America must not be too quick to
judge. This, like every other ques-
tion, has two sides, and the matter
ought to be weighed carefully. Time
will tell, and then only by careful in-
vestigation. Hasty accusations may
be the source of deep regret later.
Give the "Y" a chance to vindicate
itself of the grave charges brought
J. P. Morgan has been taken in by
the British money barons' club, ac-
cording to the newspapers. This is
the first time we have ever known the
financier to be "taken in" by anyone.
Battle Creek, Mich., Jan. 31.-De-
mobilization of the 14th division at
Camp Custer is proceeding very rap-
idly and there is some likelihood that
the drafted men of the organization
will all be out of the service inside
of another month or six weeks at the
outside. The daily rate of discharge
of enlisted men now runs from 1,000
to 2,000 and has even gone above the
latter figure and probably 'will be
even larger the next few days. Men
are being let out of the service, in
fact, as rapidly as the papers can be
handled and they can be paid off by
the quartermaster's department.
10,000 to Remain
When demobilization at Camp Cus-
ter is completed there will remain
at the cantonment something under
10,0001men, it is understood, and these
will nearly all be men of the regular
army or those who have asked per-
mission to remain in the service until
such time as they can make certain
of securing work in civil life. A
great many of the officers as well as
enlisted men are leaving the service
Anxious to Leave
Thy camp officers have been some-
what surprised because of the small
number of men who have shown a
desire to'remain in the service until
certain of \work. It was announced
several days ago that, under orders
promulgated by the war department.
men without jobs awaiting them in
civil life might remain in service, as-
suring themselves of an income at
least temporarily as well as good
clothing and food and allotment of
pay for dependents. It is said, how-
ever, that many men practically with-
out prospect of work at home for some
time to come show a desire to quit the
service at the earliest possible mom-
ent, their discharge but adding to the
problem of the unemployed.
Care for Returned
Reconstruction work at the camp
hospital is in full swing and a large
number returned from overseas sick
or wounded are being cared for, and
being given scientific treatment and
exercise designed to remake them into
as nearly perfect specimens of man-
hood as possible. At the same ,time
they are being given educationalI and
vocational training that will serve to
fit them better for taking up the
duties of every day life and work.
Many who were among the first ar-
rivals here from overseas have so far
recovered that they will shortly be

HIGHWAY COMMITTEE MEETS;
DISCUSSES STREET QUESTION
Nothing definite was decided at the
meeting of the highway committee
and board of works Wednesday night.
The city engineer is anxious to finish
certain streets which are located in
the business section of the city and
the committees were unable to de-
cide which would be started first. An-
other meeting is to be held next week.
It was decided to start work on a short
section to Jackson immediately.
Forty Packard motor trucks manned
by 80 drivers and mechanics, stopped
here Thursday night. This is the sec-
on convoy of army trucks to pass
th ough the city this week.
The convoy makes up companies C
and F of the 19th Nnotor truck divi-
sion and is enroute to Chicago from
Detroit. The outfit is under command
of Captain Gillowin.
Red, white and blue signs have been
posted through the city marking the
I' nied States motor truck convoy
route leading from Detroit, where a
great number of army trucks were
made, westward. Ann Arbor will be
used for overnight rests by the con-
voy- This no doubt will give the city
a little of the military air it had when
the"S. A. T C. was being trained here.
