Stay Of S. A. T. C.,
M'en Is Uncertain
"There is no definite length of time'
that any man or class of men in the
S. A T. C. will be at the University,"
Capt. Ralph H. Durkee said yester-
day, when asked how long the mem-
bers of the S. A. T. C. would be in
school. "However, I can say," he
continued, "that every man has the
best opportunity in the world for ad-
vancement. As soon as a man shows
himself capable, he will be recom-
mended for something higher, if any-
thing is higher than a college educa-
tion."

MICHIGANDER THE TOP;
DISTRICT WAY BEH IND
S. A. T. C. MEN FAIL TO USE
OPPORTUNITY TO
SUBS'CRIBE
Chicago, Oct. 17. - Michigan has
oversubscribed its quota of $147,-
900,000 for thei Fourth Liberty loan,
it was announced at the seventh Fed-
eral reserve district headquarters to-
night. It is the second case in the
district (Iowa was first), and one of
the first in the country to complete
its allotment. Total subscriptions re-
ported today were $152,600,000 or
$5,700,000 in excess of the quota.
Campus Campaign Lags
since %he 'last, reports from the
booth situated on the campus, sub-
scriptions have mounted to $450 for
.the Fourth Liberty loan. The booth
will continue to be open until the end
of the week. If the sale of bonds
does not increase before then, the
4uota for this district will still be
short. Part of the difficulty lies in
the fact that no definite share has been
assigned to the campus to fill, with
the result that every one lets some
one else do the subscribing.
Reports from the campaign carried
on by Mortarboard and Wyvern, show
little evidence of success. Only one
sorority has responded to the sugges-
tion to buy a bond collectively. More
complete reports are expected by the
end of the week.
S. A. T. C. Men Slow to Buy
Few S. A. T. C. men have as yet
taken advantage of the opportunity
offered all military men to subscribe
to bonds without making the initial 10
per cent payment required of civil-
lans. They may do so by applying at.
headquarters. The amount subscrib-
ed will be taken from their monthly
pay in comparatively small install-
ments.
Reports from other colleges show
that Michigan is not doing what it
should in this loan. Cornell has a
100 per cent record and many smaller

SERUM FOR EARLY STAGES
OF FLU DISCOVERED HERE1
Lieut. J. W. McKaskey, stationedi
here as assistant to Capt. B. C.
Vaughan, has discovered a serum
which will cure 'influenza if adminis-I
tered in the early stages of the dis-1
ease, according to announcement madea
by Capt. Ralph H. Durkee yesterday.1
"The serum' has already been tried1
in a number of cases and has proven
successful," Captain Durkee said. "It1
must be administered before the dis-
ease has progressed to any great ex-
tent, yet it is often difficult to dis-
'cover the disease in the less advanc-
ed stages."

Beauty And 1Beast
Bfoth Camouflaged
Highest of all the high arts in the
realm of camouflage is the becoming
adjustment of the flu mask! Be the
profile Greek or Irish it looks like a
cold potato beneath its swathes of
protecting gauze. She whom we nev-
er could hand a thing on account
of her back-to-the-Adam's-apple chin,
now knocks us down with her twin
limpid glories thrown into sudden
prominence, and he whose Phoeban
countenance was the subject of our
thrills and starts looks just like any
other surgeon's victim.
In light of our present day conserv-
atism, it is predicted that many a
feminine phys will go unrouged and
many a masculine map unshorn. He
who hates getting next to godliness
may take his day off secure behind
the muzzle that makes the great un-
washed and the twelve-plunges-a-day
fiend twins to all outward appear-
ances, and she who never could say
a french "u" as in "un" may star on
a muffled translation.
This guise which makes us all look
like shipments of antisepticaemia af-
,Fords the enviable opportunity to pass
the dear friends without a flicker of
recognition and to coo a sweet "Hel-
lo" at the grubby enemies, and more
than one mead, mad wit drags forth
the great Sphinx rival riddle, "What
.did she mean, anyway; was she laugh-
ing under the mask?"

ter, Captain Durkee does not believe any
rol. man will be kept in school longer
or than those of the same age who are
ith not in the S. A. T. C., and that may
be one month or four years. The men
who show the greatest ability will be
recommended for officers' training
nd- camps, others will be sent out as non-
-of commissioned officer material, and the
ian rest will be sent to cantonments as
the privates, according to the captain.
"A man is making the biggest mis-
es- take of his life when he bolts a class
ied or fails to perform a duty assigned
the him to the best of his ability," Cap-
to taro Durkee declared. "Even on kitch-
au- en detail a man has the opportunity
orn to gain the notice of his superiors by
lth. performing his duties well."
ted He announced that the engineering
Pi- enlisted reserve corps is to be dis-
banded eventually and the men trans-
C. ferred to the S. A. T. C. But ne does
vas not believe the upperclass engineers
will be called into active service un-
til they, finish their courses unless the
wo- need for men becomes acute.
ws "Calls for men for officers' training
of camps are supposed to come once
in- every month, but we have had two
the within a month, so it is hard to say
ies how long it will be before we are ask-
ed, ed for more recommendations. I do
'ity not think it will be any great length
30. of time," Captain Durkee said. "We
er- sent 100 men to training camps last
ue. week and will probably send that
ers many more in the near future."

WOMEN HAND OUT
FLU MASKS TODAY
Whoever has decided that there are
no compensations connected with the
"flu," may have their conclusions
dashed by this morning's innovation
on the campus. For though the fac-
ulty and students of the University
cannot at this particular time be
chasing the kaiser toward Berlin in
gas masks, they can at least gnash
their teeth at him today through gauze
ones.
This universal adoption of the in-
fluenza preventative on the campus
is the result of an order issued by
'President Harry B. Hutchins, in an
effort to curtail any further spread of
the epidemic. Since the official de-
cision was reached, the local forces
of the Red Cross, supplemented by the
voluntary work of University women,
has been kept busy cutting and sew-
ing over 4,000 masks. As a result
of their combined efforts, the products
are all ready for. distribution today.
Beginning at 7 o'clock this morn-
ing, and continuing until noon, wom-
en students of' the University will be
stationed at various places on the'
campus to greet class-bound students
with instructions and prepared bits
of gauze, to be adopted as an offi-
cial part of their campus costume un-
til further notice. The masks will
be given to faculty members, women,
and all men who are not members of
the students' army training corps.
Doris McDonald, '19, president of
the Women's league, ,is in charge of
-the distribution. She will be aided
by the following committee members:
Florence Field, '20, Marguerite Cha-
pin, '20, Ella Rasmussen, '19, Lois
de Vries, '21, Katherine Kilpatrick,
'19, Florabelle Ellis, '20, and Ethel
Glauz, '19.

Discontinue Daylight Saving
Washington, Oct. 17.-No further ef-
forts will be made by congress to
continue .the existing daylight saving
law and the hands of the clocks will
be turned back an hour on Oct. 27
as originally planned. This decision
was reached today at a conference be-
tween congressional leaders and
chairman Baruch of the war indus-
tries' board, who had recommended
that the law remain in force for the
iperiod of the war.

MlcAdoo Urges Patriotic Americans
To uy Bonds During Last 2 Days
Washington, Oct. 17.-Subscriptions reported and estimated up to noon
Thursday amounted to $4,000,000,000, leaving at least $2,000,000,000 to
complete the Fourth Liberty Loan. Only two days are left within which
to raise this vast sum. No country on earth but America could raise so
vast a sum in so short a time. America can do it and must do it.
The destines of the world and the hopes of civilization are centered up-.
on America. We shall fail in everything we have fought for and hope to
gain in this war if the Fourth Liberty Loan is defeated. Let every true
American citizen today examine himself under the white light of patriot-
ism and say whether or not he has done his utmost in this emergency.
The highest obligations of duty and patriotism command every true
American to go immediately to his bank or to his Liberty Loan committee
and subscribe to the limit of his ability to the Fourth Liberty Loan.
Don't delay. Don't wait to be urged. Be as quick to do your part in
this Fourth Liberty Loan battle as our soldiers in France are quick to obey
the orders to charge the enemy. Buy Liberty bonds on the installment plan
if you cannot buy them for cash. Every patriotic bank will help you. If
every patriotic citizen will do his duty today victory for the Fourth Lib-
erty Loan is certain.
The continued victories of our armies in Europe, the certain defeat of
our enemies and the glorious triumph of the cause of liberty depend upon
what the American people do in the remaining two days of the Fourth
Liberty Loan campaign.
