Profs' Retreat Is
MAemorial Hall
(By J. I. Dakin)
How many students in the Univer-
sity, especially freshmen, know that
Michigan. has a professors' club, a
refuge to which they may always re-
tire when querulous pupils, become
too persistent? It is aid that no stu-
dent has ever entered this retreat,
which is located in the basement of
Alumni Memorial hall.
Most of us consider this beautiful
building merely as an architectural
monument to Michigan's sons who
fought in the three wars, Mexican,
Civil, and Spanish. It was for this
purpose, of course, that it was erect-
ed by the alumni and friends of the
University in 1909 and 1910. But it
is a permanent edifice in which tab-
lets and statues in memory of men
connected with Michigan may be plac-
ed, such as the two bas-relief stat-
ues of Presidents Tappan and Angell
on either side of the main doorway.
Service of practical value is also
rendered by this building. In the
basement besides the professors' club
are the offices of the Alumnus, the
Alumni Catalog, and Prof. Francis W.
Kelsey, of the classical department.
On the main floor are a large reading
room, in which are kept papers and
magazines from all parts of the coun-
try, and a spacious office for the use of
the alumni secretary. Portraits hang
from the walls of both these rooms.
The flie arts department also has its
offices and a lecture room on this
floor, on the walls of which hang part
of the portraits of the Lewis collec-

tion. There is also another small room
full of paintings. Casts of classic
sculptures are the only works of art
in the main columned entrance hall,
which is lighted by a skylight.
Picture galleries, in which are a
large number of different types of
paintings, noteworthy to the amateur,
at least, because of their splendid col-
oring, are found in the building. Sev-
eral collections of art relics are ar-
ranged and the large lecture room
where special exhibits are held at
frequent intervals takes up the whole
west side of the main floor.
Longs For A.L. F.
Long breeches are to be regula-
tion for the A. E. F. from now on and
enough pants of this type are at pres-
en in France to outfit one-half of the
American troops abroad, reports the
Stars and Stripes.
s Information from the Chief Quar-
termaster of the A. E. F. last spring
brought forth the fact that this change
would take place, but was not carried
out because all attention needed to be
focussed at that time on fighting only.
The cause of the new order is that
the old style of pants shrunk, when
wet, and cut off the circulation to the
lower leg and foot. The Marines first
used this long type of breeches at Bel-
leau Woods, and there they proved
satisfactory. Leggings will be used
as before.
The change will cost only 19 cents
more per pair than the old style.
Sixteen members of Columbia's var-
sity crews of 1914-16 served in the
army during the war.

With swing-out day just a little
more than three weeks off, April 22,
it is essential that Seniors place their
orders for caps and gowns without fur-
ther delay if they would be garbed
in the traditional attire of their dis-
tinguished predecessors on this occa-
Merchants on the campus and down
town report that to date they have
received slightly less than 300 orders,
which is a rather small proportion
considering there are approximately
800 Seniors who expect to graduate in
June, and who must be fitted out with-
in the next few days.
Members of all Senior classes are
urged to place their orders immedi-
ately in order that the merchants
may have time to fit them without
waiting for the proverbial eleventh
hour rush.

him well. The more intricate steps in
this number were well executed. The
audience demanded every encore to
this number, and then Mirrielees was
compelled to repeat vee' one. The
number was effectively placed on the
program, and sent the criwd away with
the tinkling tune on its lips.
A Genuine Success
All in all, the show is a real suc-
cess. Even though it was the first
public performance, the singing and
acting was so well done .that the au-
dience has small opportunity for crit-
icism, even if were desired. The or-
chestra plays unusually well and does
much to "bring across" the big num-
bers, one of which is the solo of David
Nash, '20, In act 1. In spite of his
small opportunity, Nash exhibits the
best voice of the company. The show
has no lesson to teach, but simply
seeks to entertain and - it succeeds!
Directors Shuter and Moore, and their
respective workers are to be com-

pulp for textiles and surgical dress-
ings, mixed wood flour with the wheat

"The German air-program must have
taken a lot of her best spruce and
the fuel shortage must have resulted in
the cutting of great quantities of
forest for fuel to replace coal. Take
it all together, the German forests,
long the pride of the old Empire, are
probably pretty well dented. But at
worst they will be in fine shape com-
pared with those of France. Certain-
ly France will make Germany pay
heavily in timber.
World Lacks Timber
"Europe knows now, as never be-
fore, that without forests a country
is almost as badly off as without
farms. With early a fourth of all
Europe in forest, still great amounts
of timber were imported from Rus-
sia and from us. Right now there is
a timber shortage which is world
wide. American forests are danger-
ously short, too."

Mr. Hughes criticized the 10th arti-
cle of thecovenant under which the
"high contracting parties" undertook
to "respect and preserve as against
external aggression the territorial in-
tegrity and existing political independ-
ence of all states members of the
league." Conceding the argument that
this clause had been included to pro-
tect the nations born of the war the
speaker regarded it as a "trouble
breeder" and not a "peace maker."

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 ali 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 Dean of the University of Michi-
gan Law School, Ann Arbor, Michigan.
