Local health authorities interpret
the Governor's proclamation request-
ing that "all conventions and public
gatherings of every description" be
abandoned until the epidemic of in-
fluenza is over, as referring only to
conventions, upon which particular
stress is laid. Consequently Ann Ar-
bor churches and theaters are still
open to civilians and S. A. T. C. of-
In spite of the repeated statements
of the health officers that the situation
in Ann Arbor is not alarming and the
insistence that each day is the crest
of the disese, actual conditions from
an observer's viewpoint seem to grow
worse. The hospitals are so crowded
that the old Union is being used as
an infirmary. Deaths have more than
doubled during the last two days. The
statement that the form of influenza
found in Ann Arbor is nothing but
grippe has been denied by doctors at-
tending the cases. The military au-
thorities are putting masks on the men
who are running danger of contract-
ing the disease. They are aware of its
seriousness and are bending all their
energies toward combatting it. They
do not allow the men to attend the
The health officers are taking a
grave responsibility when they insist
that the governor did not mean all that
he said, and when they refuse to take
the energetic measures which he rec-
ommends to stamp out the plague.
In their desire not to alarm the public
needlessly, it is possible that they are
pursuing a head-in-the-sand policy.

The watch on the Rhine is getting

The Hostess house is still ostensi-
bly closed, though the hostess will be
there to establish relations between
the men and their friends. It will be
impossible for the hostess to obtain
permission for visiting friends to see
the men who are injured and still in
the hospital. This is to prevent the
spread of the influenza epidemic and
to avoid infection through either the
men or their relatives.
The campus of the Michigan Agri-
cultural college was placed under
quarantine this week as a precau-
tionary measure to prevent the spread
of influenza. As a result, only per-
sons provided with passes may enter
the campus. However the football
game with Hillsdale was played yes-
terday but only M. A. C. students and
members of the faculty were allod-
ed to attend.

S.A. T. . Review1
For Liberty Day
A review of the S. A. T. C. was held(
last evening on Ferry field. The re-
view was ordered in compliance with
the Presidents' order that all mili-
tary organizations should observe
Liberty day by a demonstration of
some kind. Liberty day was sett
aside for the celebration of the dis-
covery of America by Columbus.1
Although there was a differencef
between the drilling of the mechanics
and of the S. A. T. C. boys, the effect
of the past week's drill upon the boys
could easily be seen. They have
learned how to keep step quite welli
and they are good in the execution7
of the fundamental movements.
The men were called to attention
by Captain Duarkee, who said, "Every
day is important to us as soldiers
of the United States, but today is of1
especial importance to us because it
is Liberty day, the day of the dis-
covery of America." Captain Durkee
then read the President's Liberty day
He next introduced Rev. L.
Douglass, who gave a short address
which was sent straight from the
shoulder and was received with a
great show of approbation.
Mr. Douglass said in part, "Four
hundred and ten years have passed
since Columbus discovered America.
Because America was so remote from
the old world, only those who were
fearless and unusually adventurous
came to America. These were the
men who built up America. The in-
ternal discoveries made since then,
discoveries of theretofore unknown
forces, are the (things which have
made the United States the largest,
the greatest, and the most powerful
nation in the world. In the world
war America has discovered a new
sense of patriotism. We had forgot-
ten the real patriotism in those east
going times of peace. This new
bond, however, has linked us togeth-
er by bonds which cannot be broken."
As the troops left the field their
progress was again noticable as
they formed into a column of squads
and marched with a military stride
and bearing off the field to mess.
Miss Helen Crane, who has been
here recruiting secretaries for the
Y. W. C. A., left last night to con-
tinue her work in other parts of the
state. While here Miss Crane ad-
dressed the Y. W. C. A. and interest-
ed many girls in the work by per-
sonal conferences. A number of the
girls with whom Miss Crane talked
are seriously considering Y. W. C. A.
secretary work as a vocation.
A Y. W. C. A. secretary may choose
almost any place in the world for her
home for she is needed everywhere.
Miss Crane spent several years in
China, engaged in the service. She
spoke with much enthusiasm of
China and the Chinese, who are, she
said, alive to every opportunity. Y.
W. C. A.'s have been established in
four cities of China and three more
are to be established there soon.
Physical directors are especially need-
ed there.
The salaries of foreign secretaries
are paid by contributions from vari-
ous city associations in this country.
Otherwise the organizations are self-
supporting. The object of the for-

eign secretary is to make herself un-
necessary by training others to take
up the work. Miss Crane is touring
Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois, and
Indiana and stimulating interest in
the foreign work in these states.
The Women's league is undertaking,
large amounts of war work this year.
Co-operation with the Red Cross is
the only plan definitely decided on. An
urgent call is being sent out from the
Angell house for helpers. University
students are settling down to work
now and the time for procrastination,
if there was such a time, is past. All
University women, and especially all
members of the Women's league,
should sign up at the Angell house
immediately. The house is open
every day except Saturday. Supplies
are plentiful but help is needed bad-
ly. Every hour you spend there will
release one of the women, already en-
gaged, for work in the city Red Cross.

Girls who are intending to do Red
Cross work are requested to call Flor-
ence Field, '20, phone 251.

vice will be held at 4:30 o'clock Wed-

Great Lakes, Ill., Oct. 12.-The first
call for soccer has gone out at Great
Lakes Naval Training Station. It
has been answered by more than a
score of the highest paid profession-
als in the game who are now on the
Station in "gob" uniforms. From ad-
vance indications the navy will have
practically an all-star eleven.
