UIRSHIPS AID IN ,DDINt .
SEAS OF DEADLY MINES
London, "May 28.-Sweeping up the
housands of mines which strew thef
eas in the neighborhood of the British
sles has proved such a costly and
angerous job when carried on by the
rdinary methods, that the admiralty
as turned to the airship for. relief.
Dxperiments conducted in the North
lea, it is announced, have been suc-
essful, mines being located and ex-
loded much quicker than when the
sual mine-sweeping ship is used.
While the airship has the advant
ge of height in locating mines, the
nere fact that an airship cannot hit
mine adds so much to theelement of
afety that it is expected that much
f the 5,000'square miles of mine
trewn waters which remain will be
leared without loss of life.

of Columbus on the graves of all

grave, with the name of the dead,
soldier or sailor, and this inscrip-
"He died that we might live. In
grateful memory from his fellow coun-
trymen. The Knights of Columbus of
the United States. May 30, 1919."
American graves in France and
Flanders also will be decorated by the
Knights on Memorial day.
FRATERNITY STEWARDS MEET;
ELECT TEMPORARY MANAGER
For the purpose of voting on a suit-
able constitution, the fraternity stew-
ards met Wednesday night in the
The constitution was adopted after a
little pro and con debate, until Nov.
1, 1919. At that time it will be bet-
ter known what the conditions de-
mand. The points disputed were, the
five per cent commission to be paid
to the 'Business manager, and the tax
to be levied against the fraternities
for incidental expenses.
A temporary business manager was
appointed until the board can defi-
nitely elect one. It was hoped to be
able to elect permanent officers, but
owing to the few representatives pres-
ent, the action was delayed until a
meeting to be held next Tuesday night.
Horseback Rider Injured
John C. Cowing, '21, while riding
horseback on Geddes road, was vio-
lently thrown to the ground, seriously
spraining his left elbow. The accident
was caused by the horse stepping into
a hole in the middle of the road on
the crest of the hill, and stumbling.
The hole was admittAly dug by a
party of surveying students who neg-
lected to fill it before leaving.

ARMY PLANNED TO BE
LIKE MODERN COLLEGE
Paris, May 27.-A great new educa-
tional force in the shape of the Amer-
ican regular army will come into be-
ing in the United States in the near
future if the present plans of govern-
ment officials, army officers and prom-
inent civilian educators are realized.
Briefly, it is proposed to make Un-
cle Sam's standing army a huge uni-
versity in which the young men of the
country will receive not only physi-
cal and military training, but will be
given opportunities to acquire acad-
emic and vocational learning which
might be beyond their reach in civil
life. The old days of virtual wastage
of time which represented almost
blank pages in the life diary of the
soldiers will be a thing of the past.
Instead of being turned back into civ-
il life in a more helpless state than
when he entered the army he will be
equipped to wage a vigorous fight for
his place in the sun of the business or
450,000 Already Schooled
The possibilities of this plan have
been demonstrated in the wonderful
work done during the past few months
by the Educational Commission in the
American Expeditionary Force in
France, Since the signing of the
armistice something like 450,000 Amer-
ican soldiers have been appreciably
benefitted by the army schools, which
shave been put within the reach of
every man and which have provided
facilities to study almost every con-
ceivable subject, from farming to
Few of the army educators in France
realized at the outset how great a
work they were starting. The avidity
with which the enlisted man and his
officer have seized upon the proffered
opportunities has astounded them.
With this object lesson before it,
the army has been inspired to carry
on this work at home in the standing
'forces. The project assumes, it is un-
derstood, that the standing army of the
future will be a comparatively large
one, and that there may be a short
period of compulsory training for the
youths of the country, although the
scheme is not dependent upon the com-
Curricula to Be Varied
Under the new system all subjects
would be taught, from A, B, C's for
the Illiterate, up through perhaps the
first year of university work. Voca-
tional training would naturally form a
most important phase of the pro-
gram. Boys who had had no oppor-
tunity for schooling before entering
the army would be started on their
way and would be permitted to rein-
list at the expiration a ftheir service
in order to carry on their studies. Oth-
ers, who perhaps had finished high
school, would be given a chance to
begin their college course so that
there would be no waste of time in
case they were planning to go into
professions or business.
There would be military training, of
course, and the soldiers would be
made as nearly physically perfect as
posibe. A large part of their time,
however, would l e devoted, if they so
desireu, to improving their hinds.
Thus, the army believes, any boy,
matter what his stan:g in society,
would be materially benefitted $, hs
period of service with the colors.
THEATER PRICES IN FRANCE
SHOW TWENTY CENT ADVANCE
Paris, May 28.-The Comedie Fran-
caise, Prance's leading theater, has at
last been compelled to follow the ex-f
ample of the other theaters and in-
crease the price of its seats. The in-
crease is not heavy, 20 cents, on the
higher priced seats and half as much
on certain of the cheaper.places.
Orchestra stalls will cost the equiv-
alent of $2.40 instead of $2.20. Even
with these increases, the Comedie
Francaise, which receives a state sub-
vention and so has to receive officialr
authorization before changing its ad-
mission rates, remains cheaper than
other first-class houses.
The new music-hall under English
direction charges the equivalent of $4!
net, including the poor tax for its best
stalls. The theater where Gaby Deslys
is appearing charges the same, with 10
per cent extra for the poor tax.
