present at a meeting to be held at
7:30 o'clock next Tuesday evening in

EN Although the membership commit-

or- presented to it, many of them are un-

3lu- sarily a slow one. The present list

Chatter Box
Frpshman girls!. It is time to put
your high and preparatory school in-
signia away.
Many girls have been seen on the
campus wearing pins, rings, and
sweaters bearing glaring high school
insignia. This is not the place for
such things. When you enroll as a
student of tie University of ' Michi-
gan, you are entering into a new pe-
riod of your life where high school
rings, pins, and other insignia have
no place. This has always beeh a
tradition o' the University. It gives
the appearance of the campus being
a convention ground for preparatory
students. You are now a college stu-
dent, land the high school you came
from makes little difference.
The time may come, when you will
win the right to wear the Michigan
insignia on your sweater, but until
that time be content to put away these
mementos of your high school days.
Wear your little green buttons, and
remember that you are now a full-
fhedged college student.
At the Union
Some progress has been made to-
ward filing the 40,000 registration
cards which the Union has cut up.
Although the work of tabulation is
nowhere near completion, Union offi-
cials state that at first glance there
seems to be a great wealth of talent
in the University.
As soon as the filing is complete, a
tabulation of all the data will be made
and given out for publication. Cards
which were used the most were- those
devoted to music, dramatics, theatri-
cal #mangement, publications, amuse-
ments, and business.
Selection &f chairmen for 10 stand-
ing committees foi the Union was
made at a meeting of the appointment
committee Wednesday afternoon in
the office of Homer Heath, general
manager. Owing to the fact that the
names of these men must be submit-
ted to the eligibility committee for
ratification, Union officials are with-
holding namesT the men.
The appointment committee will
continue its sessions until such time
as all the secretaries and members of
the 20 standing committees are chos-
en. It is thought that the eligibility
will be returned to the Union some
time ext week, when the list of com-
mittee members will be published in
The Daily.
Among the latest additions to the
efficiency of the Union is the large bul-
letin board which now stands in the
lobby. It was only placed there Tues-
day, but already is carrying some half
dozen notices daily. One side of the
board will be for notices under the
heading "Today." The other side'is
reserved for notices of future meet-
ings.
Albion Students, Note!
All Albion students who intend to
be present at the get-together lunch-
eon Saturday noon at Catalpa Inn are
requested by Mrs. Holen to call 2747
before 5 o'clock Friday.,
Curb Philosopher
Returns To City
"Railroad Jack," curbstone philos-
opher and human encyclopedia of his-
toric characters, who admits that he

has the greatest command of language
of any man in the country, who ac-
knowledges that he is the best known
man in the state of Michigan, to say,
nothing of being familiar with the lives
of 5,000 historic characters, arrived in
Ann Arbor yesterday with five suits
of clothes, ten suitcases, one trunk,
and two silk hats.
This is Jack's first visit since 1917
when, he says, he was so disheartened
by the sight of students drilling and
going off to war that he left, not to re-
turn until peace prevailed again. Now
he is back, not only to lecture, as he
did yesterday noon and evening to a
large audience of freshmen, but to
study. Jack intends to add "ency-
clopedia of human knowledge' 'to his
long list of titles. To do this, he says
he must browse amongst -the arts and
sciences in the University Library.
For a rolling stone, Jack has c-
quired considerable moss, having pick-
ed up $25,000 lecturing in the streets
of Detroit during the past 25 years.'
Out of this he has established a fund
of $1,000 to be distributed to school
children in the state who make the

WILL INVITE ALL SERVICE MEN
TO JOIN; GOVERNMENT
PROMISES RIFLES
Ba ked by members of the ex-Uni-
versi y Naval Militia, each one of
whom has seen service, a movement
is on foot for the formation of a Uni-
versity Rifle team. Most of the men:
who are interestd were on rifle
ranges, but all service men, marine
corps, army and navy, who desire to
keep up their practice in shooting will
have the opportunity to join the
club.
Range Obtained
Initial steps in organization of the
project were take'n at the club's
meeting at the Union. The privilege
for use of a range has been obtained
and 20,000 rounds of ammunition are
in storage here. A letter has been
received from the -government direct-
,or- of civilian marksmanship that ri-
,fles and ammunition will be supplied
in ample numbers and as soon as
they come, actvities will commence.
The local team will be affiliated with
the National Rifle association of
America. It will be assured of the
association's support in arranging
matches between different organiza-
tions. The government authorizes a
national rifle match to be held once
a year. These matches are for three
classes of shooters, the National
Guards from each state, civilias, and
service men. At these matches teams
representing every part of the coun-
try and territories gather in competi-
tion.
Formation Team Planned
It is hoped that enough enthusiasm
will be aroused so that the Univer-
sity will recognize the efforts the
club is putting forth and include rifle
shooting and marksmanship on its
regular athletic program. If spthen
funds would be provided tor sen4-
teams for matches in other colleges.
At the government rifle meet held
last summer, the team which took
14th place include eight Naval Mil-
itia men who attended the University
in former years: 'hese men showed
up the best of all those in the team.
With .that encouragement, it ise -
pected that Michigan will produce a
team that will compare favorably
with any team in the country.
The team has the support of sev-
eral faculty member, Mr. J. R. Hay
den, Prof. Arthur E. Bok, and Mr.
Albert E. Jenkins.
What Gruesome
Life Jedics Lead!
Have you ever entered that chamber
of silent men, where owhite-aproned
medics are dissecting human forms,
slashing skin, and cutting out mortal
necessities?
Have yu felt those suspicious eyes
upon you that seem trying to impart
that you have wantonly discovered a
dark secret or are yourself being pre-
pared for initiation into its full mean-
ing? After catching a glimpse of the
long rows of shrouded dead men you
will probably think of very import-
ant things that call you away immed-
iately, but you must get the story of
the "stiff"-if you are a Daily reporter.
Can you picture an ice box where
preserved men are hanging by hooks
dug into their ears? What 'er you
shivering about? You're not In cold
storage, are you? The medics Just
tell you about it; of course if you
want to see it-but then, why be too
curious?
Well, after a "stiff" is dislodged
from his pleasant hangingshe is "as-
signed" to a group of students wh

thereupon prepare to tub him. Yeh,
first of all this child of their adoption
must be bathed. Then his hair is cut,
and he is sh ved. The razer goes over
his mhole body, from the crown of the
head to the sole of the feet. What a-
waste of talcum powder!
After he's all clean and shining, the
"stiff" is laid flat on a slab, face down,
like he used to do when he took a
Turkish bathe And his arms and legs
are wrapped in damp cloth, and every
day he is sprinkled with a mild solu-
tion of carbolic acid. Some interesting
life a "stiff" has!
But next they skin him, peel off the
fat, yank out nerves and muscles b
layers, then wreck him by-chiseling
out the' spinal column and shaking
hands with the vital organs on the
other side. But why linger-.
Once out the door you don't care
much whether you left your note-book
behind or not. You just feel into your
pockets cautiously, half afraid of find-
ing a disintegrated little toe or some
precious section of jaw bone that
somebody, back in the mummy cave,
might have thought would make a
