THE MICHIGAN DAILY

C. 0. D.?
No mystery at all. One only has to
take a choice of the meanings that
were expounded yesterday. An ever-
wise and ever-ready (just like the
razor) freshman solved the enigma
readily and glibly explained "Sure,
that guy's a 'Cub on the Daily.' " The
Boy whose marks were pretty well
along in the alphabet can't help but
think it means "Call On Dean," but
then one must admit he is prenju-
The junior says it means "Caught
Off Duty" or "Called On Dorothy," but
the junior was wrong and his mind
was not on his curriculum.
The S. A. T. C. boy reflects and ex-
pounds this "Clean Olive' Drabs."
The Armory and Union habitue
guesses and says, "Come On Dance."
The maiden thinks it's a subtle way
the men on campus hve of saying to
her "Cute, Oh Dear."
DEMAND 50 TREATIES
Division of Wrd hnc Smaller States
Will Make iUt o' Dlocments
Paris, March 6.-- Duc to the fact
that more than 50 declarations of war
have been made upon Germany since
hositlities started in 1014, it is prob-
able that more than 50 treaties of
peace will be signed by the confer-
ence now being held at Versailis. It
cannot be stated in round figures how
many treaties must be signed, for the
splitting of Ausria-Hungary and Ger-
many into many segments may nec-
essitate the drafting o treaties quite
unthought of when President Wilson
presented his 14 points before con-
At that time Austria-Hungar hadd
declared war five times; , Germany,
Brazil, once; Bulgaria. once; China,
twice; Cuba, once; France, four times;
Germans so closely that the reed on

Greece, four times; Italy, four times;
Japan, once; Liberia, once; Montn-
egro, twice; Panama. twice; Portugal,
twice; Rumania, once; Russia, twie;,
San Marino, once; Serbia, three times;
Siam, twice; Turkey, twice; a'nd the
United States, twice. Since then, how-
ever, time and events have changed
things considerably. havaria. Wurt-
temburg, Saxony, Hungary, and per-
haps several more entities may de-
mand and recieve treaties.
The Czecho-Slovaks, Jugo-Slas,
and Armenia, Palestine, and the dis-
integrated parts of Russia are en-
titled to separate treaties. Thus, when
the tremendous work of the Versailles
conference is accomplished, more than
75 distinct international peace agree-
ments may result. When all the
treaties are completed, they must be
approved by the treaty-making powers
of their respective governments.
WAR BOARD MEET
Gov. Albert E. Sleeper has issued
a call for a meeting of all county war
boards to be held on March 11 and
12, in Lansing, for the purpose of set-
tling some of the problems that now
confront the state war board com-
The governor has selected a com-
mittee of 20 to begin preliminary dis-
cussions of these problems at once
in ordor to have a definite basis on
which to work when all the county
representatives get together next week.
A committee of five has been ap-
pointed to represent the interests of
Washtenaw county. It is thought that
at least th-ee of these men will be
able to attend this meeting. The mem-
bers of the committee are as follows:
George W. Millen, chairman; Henry
Douglas, Hugh Vandewalker, Wm. B.
Hatch, and Roscoe O. Bonistee.

of forgiveness and forgetting was
heard, but we who have lived through
it can never forget.," said Baroness

At an-informal meeting of the Mich-
igan naval militia held last night in
the Michigan Union billiard room, with
Lieut. J. R. Hayden presiding, a com-
mittee was appointed to consider the
permanent organization of the militia
from a social standpoint.
Plans were discussed for a ban-
quet to be held in the Union at 6
o'clock Wednesday, March 19. An-
other committee was appointed to
complete plans for the banquet. A
suggestion was also made that a his-

piled for the benefit of its members and
those interested in it.
It is expected that the members who
attend the banquet will have many
experiences to exchange, and efforts
will be made to secure a projector for
showing the photographs they took
while in the service.
