AGA ST R E OLIES
Due to the recent deaths in Detroit
traced to the so-called "olive poison-
rig," Dr. Wesigner, city health officer,
warns the public against eating ripe
He says that the product of the
Curtis Canning company of California,
is to be especially guarded ag'ainst,
and advises grocers not to purchase
any more of this brand. Olives worth
$56,000 were confiscated and burned
yesterday in Detroit.
Dr. Victor C. Vaughan, dean of the
Medical school, says the poison is not
limited to olives, but might be found
in practically any canned fruit, espec-
ially those in which a brine is used.'He
claims, however, that there is no spec-
ial danger at present, since the condi-
tions governing the poison should no
more be present now than at other
According to Dr. Vaughan the pois-
on is caused by the presence n th-e
olives of the bacillus botilinus, which
is deadly. The bacillus was first dis-
covered in Germany and was found in
'this country only some*'35 years ago,
and it is found how in California. At
present, experiments are being carried
on in the Medical school in an effort
to find an antitoxin for the bacillus.

The first Women's league party 'of
the year was* opened with several
selections by the women's orchestra of
which Ann Noble, '20, is the president.
President Harry B. Hutchins. gave '
very interesting talkuon.co-education.
He said every woman in the Univer-
sity had certain 'duties and should
select her dutes accordingly.
He said theresisasomedanger of the
home being neglected since women
take such a prominent part in politics,
but that there is no necessity of this
neglect if they are properly trained.
Our primaty work should be home-
making and home-keepin.
Dean Myra B. Jordan told of the
first meeting of the league 29 years
ago when Mrs. Alice Fulton Hussey
was president. There were only 60
members then and they met in the
hall where students now register. .
Professor Wenley in his talk about
"The Fight for the Higher Educa-
tion.of Women," emphasizedr the fact
that women lack a background' for
higher thinking and that they need to
cultivate a sense of proportion and at-
tain a store of general ideas. He stat-
ed that women average higher in in-
'telligence than men. but the men with
the highest intellects average higher
than the women with the highest in-
Other interesting talks were given

AS LIBERTY DAY
Governor Sleeper has issued a proc-
lamation declaring Nov. 11 Liberty
Day and asking that the day be ob-
served In the schools with fitting ex-
ercises. This action is a result of
the designation of Ny. 11 a4 Liber-
ty Day by the legislature, which, how-
ever,,did not make it a legal holiday.
Governor Sleeper's proclamatien is
"The eleventh day of November
next will be the first anniversary of
the signing of the armistice in the
great war, and inasmuch as the
Michigan legislature in the session
of 1919 passed an act making it the.
duty of- school officers and teachers
to have the schools under their charge
observe said day with appropriate
commemorative exercises, it, seems'
fitting that the day should not be al-
lowed to pass without attention be-
ing called to its significance.
"Therefore, I, Albert E. Sleeper,
governor, -of the state of, Michigan,
