WOMEN NEEDED TO
CARE FOR WOUNDED
In order to care for the sick and
wounded Michigan men who have re-
turned from France and are being
taken care of in New York, the Mich-
igan office of the war preparedness
board in New York has made a special*
appeal to the women of this state to
donate their services and resources.
These men in the hospitals are in
need of khaki bags to contain their
personal possessions. The Red Cross
has not taken up the matter of these
bags, due to the fact that they are so
busy sewing bandages and other med-
ical necessities. Mrs. L. P. Hall, chair-
man of the sewing at the local Red
Cross, said they had received no re-
quest for the bags up to this time.
She, expressed the desire that some
organization or individual would
volunteer to take charge of this mat-
The bags should be made of firm
cotton khaki cloth and should be made

TRAIC SITUATION SEENI
IN CAUUSIN HUSSI
GEORGIA, CAUCASIAN REPUBLIC,
ALONE REMAINS UNCON-
Moscow (Correspondence of the As-i
sociated Press.-Of all sad situations1
growing out of Russia's dismember-
ment, that in the Caucasus is most1
tragic. By the terms of the Brest-1
Litovsk peace treaty Russia ceded the
provinces of Kars and Batoum to
Turkey. But Caucasus, which is a
conglomeration of races, mountain
tribes and feuds, was as strongly op-
posed to Turkish domination as iti
was to Bolshevik rule.
The Armenian massacres still freshi
in their memories, the Caucasian peo-
ple refused to recognize the treaty
and united to fight Turkish aggres-
sion. But they were weak and un-
organized and could not withstand the
onslaught of superior Turkish armies
directed by German commanders.
Their position was still further aggra-
vated by persistent propaganda of the
Bolsheviki, who were anxious to rush
all opposition and sowed dissension
The hastily formed independent
Trans-Caucasian Republic soon crum-
bled to pieces, Georgia alone, of all
the component states, retaining a sem-
blance of government and declaring
itself an independent Republic. The
,new-born state was in no position to
fight the Turks single-handed and was
compelled to negotiate with Turkey,
a peace that virtually makes Georgia
,a Turkish protectorate.
"United Trans-Caucasia has ceased
to exist," writes I. Tzeretelli, a mem-
ber of the new Georgia government.
"The southern part of it, populated
mostly by Armenians, has been occu-
pied by the Turks; eastern Trans-Cau-
casia is willing to recognize volun-
tarily the power of the Sultan.
"Georgia is all that was saved from
free Trans-Caucasia that is not yet
enslaved by Turkey."

FOR S. A. T. C. BAND
Here is a chance for some worthy
private to be excused from the labor-
ious task of K. P. Both sections of
the S. A. T. C. bands are open to mu-
sicians of medium and professional
ability. Band practice does not ne-
cessitate absence from drill, although
plans are under way to excuse mem-
bers from K. P.
It is estimated that the band will
be composed of not less than 100
pieces although less than this number
have been attending the rehearsals.
Trips to other towns will be arrang-
ed as soon as possible.
Quite a few professional musicians
are members, which speaks favorably
for the success of the organization.
Rehearsals are held at 4:30 on
Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The
men go directly from practice to the'
mess hall. Those interested should
report at rehearsal periods to Ser-
geant Heller on the second floor of the
Michigan Union building.
Detroit Wastes Tons of Meat Weekly
Detroit, Oct. 21.-By a recent in-

the government it was found that 29
tons of meat were wasted a week by
the Detroit markets. None of this is
thrown away as garbage but is made
into by-products. The government is
interested in using waste meat for
making glycerine for munitions.
