The first mentioned man was no
more under the jurisdiction of the
University than the man who did his
bit overseas; his time was his govern-

army man, not a colleg man. He was
no more influenced by tradition and
spirit than the man "over there." He

with a spirit, fully as commendable

Recent statistics prepared by the
college of engineering of the Univer-
sity of Wisconsin, show that the sold-
ier bonus students of the department
r"have out ranked the regular students.
Prof. J. D. Phillips, assistant dean
of the -college, believes this due to
the fact that the bonus students who
are usually older men, take the work
more seriously than the ayerage stu-

A big slump in themouse market is
reported from Columbia university
.where large stocks of the little rod-
ents are used for experimextal pur-
poses. Quotations for mice have fall-
en far below pre-war levels and many
breeders have been forced out.
Hosts of mice were required during
the' war for medical experiments 'and
high prices offered for them by the
government stimulated the breeding
of these animals. When the armis-
tice was signed, the breeders were
caught "long" on mice and found
themselves carrying a heavy cverload.
This alarming situation, in the
mouse market will be relieved, it is
hoped, by supplying numerous labora-
tories throughout the country. If the
demand in this country cannot equal
the supply, there is still one escape
from the mouse deluge. Large quant-
ities of the delectable little creatures
will be presented to the Imperial Uni-
versity of Tokio.
