EX-PRISONERS, FRIENDS AND
CHURCHES ATTEMPT RELIEF
Moscow, March 9.-To prevent the
death by starvation and disease of
200,000 or so men and women in the
various prisons and concentration
camps of Russia, collections are being
taken in the churches by the priests
and about the streets by ex-prisoners
or by friends and relatives of prison-
Despite the amnesty proclamationof
the soviet government, November last,
the - prisons and camps continue
crowded with men and women poit-
ical prisoners whose only crime ap-
pears to have been that they once were
rich or that they fell afoul of old ene-
mies who used their communistic in-
fluence to avenge private grievances.
Conditions hace been foing from bad
to worse since the famine until now
prison means to be practically without
food, colthes, heat or medicine. The
organization known as the Russian po-
litical Red Cross has had its meager
supplies and funs cut off, along with
schools, hospitals and other insttu-
The people in the famine region are
i a paradise compared to those who
are denied their liberty and all means
of obtainifig food.
Eat Like Animals
In the camps of Novospaski and
Pokrofsky, near Moscow, to the cer-
tain knowledge of The Associated
Press correspondent, the prisoners are
reduced to eating bits of refuse, like
hungry animals. The best that i's
served them is greasy hot water called
soup and pieces of black bread.
Once such people as these get into
prison they stay there almost auto-
matically because they are f no spe-
cial political importance in present-
4ay Soviet Russia.
For Addition To
Plans for the addition to the botan-
ical gardens on Packard street and
for .the gardener's home, have -been re-
ceived by Prof. H. H. Bartlett, of the
botany departinen. The additions
were approved at the last meeting
of the Board of Regents.
A propagation house is to be added
to the/west end of the present build-
ing. ;It will be used for the purpose
of starting seeds and cuttings and is
to be 30 by 50 feet.
t Completed plans for the botanical
gardens call for eleven greenhouses,
of which this is the fifth. The present
greenhouses, boiler house and labor-
atory building, were constructed in
1915 and 1916. During the years since
.1916 construction has necessarily been
at a standstill, although the work of
the garden has expanded' as originally
contemplated. The crowded condition
resulting has greatly hampered the
work and the new building will tem-
porarily relieve the situation.,
The garden is now recognized, ac-
cording- to rofessor Bartlett, as provid-
ing facilites for advanced teaching
and, search' in plant breeding and
genetics second to none in the coun-
try. In addition it furnishes mater-
ial for the teaching of elementary bot-
anyf onthe campus, and provides dec-
orations for the University hospitals
and other buildings.a
Prof. R. N. Curtiss, assistant direc-
tor of the Observatory, was recently
on the stand in Detroit giving testi-
mony in the Michigan Stamping com-
pany case, started by residents of the
neighborhood who had complained
about the vibrations of their homes.
They claimed that the machinery in
the company's mill caused the tremors.
Professor Curtiss measured the vi-
brations in the mill and, by means of
instruments, determined what machine
it was that was causing the com-
plaints. He then went tothe nearest
house and measured the tremors there,
and found that they were greatly re-
The case has not as yet been settled,
but the court has given the Michigan
Stamping company a. chance to remove
the cause for complaint.
