"It is in the spring of the year that
we feel the urgent need of warning
people against the carelessness of
handling matches, cigarette butts,
remnants of camp fires, and other In-
flammable matter in the fields and
woods around Ann Arbor," was the
statement of Prof. Leigh J. Young,
when questioned in regard to the for-
est work being carried on in this vic-
inity.
"Very few people appreciate the
immense damage caused by forest
fires. For years we have been at-
tempting to educate the people in this
respect. Four fires have already been
found on Saginaw farm, formerly
known as the University forestry
farm. It was only good fortune that
someone happened to discover these
fires in time to stop the spread of the
conflagration.
According to Information obtained
there have also been numerous fires
on the Detroit Edison property in
years past. In these fires more than
100 acres of young trees have been
destroyed, representing a total loss of
more than $1,000.
Due to carelessness in handling
matches, cigarette butts, and burning
camp fires, the state of Michigan hasj
passed a law which provides a heavyj
penalty for anyone who builds a fire
on another person's property without
first having received permission.'
"This law is particularly applicable
in the case of the forestry farm and
the Eber White woods owned by the
University," said Professor Young.1
"These forests to the forestry de-
partment are analogous to the labor-
atories of the chemist. They are val-
uable assets which the department
possesses for carrying on its practical
work. And for that reason we willj
prosecute to the full extent of the lawj
any offenders of the fire regulations
apprehended on these stretches oft
ground."

Using as his subject the theory of
mathematical probability, Arne Fisch-
er, mathematician of the Prudential
Insurance company, is talking to the
insurance classes of Prof. J. W.
Glover at 10 o'clock each morning
during this week.
He will give a talk to the general
public at 4:15 o'clock Friday after-
noon in room 205 of Mason hall. At
this time he will talk on the recent
progress in the theory of probability
and statistics, and in this lecture he
will divert from the detailed and tech-
nical discussion which he uses in ad-
dressing the insurance classes.
Mr. Fischer is a Dane, possessing a
wide knowledge of Scandinavian and
Danish affairs, and consequently he is
enabled to talk with authority on the
work of these schools in his line of
work.
He Is the author of a recent book,
"The Mathematical Theory of Prob-
ability," which is considered by many
to be one of the best English books
written on the subject. Mr. Fischer
is considered one of the best author-
ities in the United States on this
theory.

POSTOFFICE AND PRESS
SAY "KEEP UNIFORMS"
Although the signing of a bill by
the President giving discharged sold-
iers permission to retain their uni-
forms has been announced several
times tlprough the press, inquiries are
still coming to The Daily office ask-
ing for information on this subject.
The press report used by several
responsible papers and the fact that
the postoffice has received orders to
accept no uniforms consigned to the
quartermaster's department should
be sufficient proof that Uncle Sam
does not want the outfits back. This
is the way Major Durkee understands
the situation. He cannot give apy of-
ficial advice, due to the fact that his
office has received no orders giving
the former service men permission to
retain the uniforms..

Indiana Abolishes Spring Vacation
Spring vacation has been dispensed
with this year at the University of

take respites after the term examina-

The Faculty of the Law School of the University of Michigan
has arranged a special course for the Summer Session of 1919 and
the first semester of the year 1919-1920, in which course the stu-
dent is allowed to carry an amount of work slightly in excess of
the normal amount and thus gain the equivalent of a year of
credit. The saving of time for students who may be discharged
'from the army or navy before June 23 will thus be considerable
and of great importance in aiding them to secure early admis-
sion to the bar. The course will include all subjects of the reg-,.
ular curriculum and will be given in the regular way by the Law
School Staff.
Students desiring to take advantage of this course must pre-
sent official evidence of their military or naval service.
For particulars address the .Deah of the University of M hi-
gan Law School, Ann Arbor, Michigan.
