Apparently one of the mnust activ
art seasons in recent years is no
in its making, a review of the exhi-
bits which have taken place in Anl
Arbor during the present semester
indicates. It is also clearly shown
upon investigation that there are(
three organizations connected witha
the University which have been
particularly instrumental in bring-
ing about such a season.
These three organizations wich
ave been active in this line are the
University division of fine arts, the
Ann Arbor Art association and the
1chool of architecture.
'Te first one, the division of fine
arts, has sponsored four exhibition

The pressure of the World war,
and the years of exile since have
brought many changes in the for-
mer ruler of Germany. Before the
war his features were sharp, his
mustache dark and pointed, and
his face bespoke ambition and

Although he never has flown in
an airplane, the ex-kaiser keeps a

While he formerly worked at the
woodpile only during good weather,
Wilhelm now takes his exercise
daily. Recently he provided himself
with an oil-skin outfit that defies

And looking like a North Sea
ship captain at work at his wood-
pile, the former ruler presents a
striking contrast to the Kaiser Wil-

Viceroy Lord Irwin
Decides to Release
Gandhi From Prison
(By Associated Press)
NEW DELHI, India, Jan. 23. -
Viceroy Lord Irwin, it was under-
stood here today, already has made
a decision to release Mahatma
Gandhi, the imprisoned Nationalist
leader. Only the details of his re-
moval from Yeroda prison, Peona,
so as to avoid a public demonstra-
tion, remain to be arranged.
The Mahatma was arrested last
May 4, more than a month after
he had led a group of All-India
National congress volunteers from
Allahabad down to the sea at
Dandhi, where they manufactured
salt in defiance of British law.
He had hoped for arrest earlier,
believing his incarceration would
align divergent elements behind
him in the passive war for inde-
pendence but for many ,weeks the
British government arrested his
aides and left him alone.

A contracting job started now may bring an income to some
