Prof. Dunham
Will Describe
French Wars
Cerele Francais To Hear
struggle Against Europe
Discussed By Historian
Due to the scheduling of the all-
campus meeting for Tuesday, the
Cercle Francais-sponsored lecture or-
iginally to have been given on that
day has been moved forward to 4:15
p.m. tomorrow in Room D, Alumni
Memorial Hall.
At this time Prof. Arthur L. Dun-
ham of the history department will
speak on "La Conquete de l'Europe
par la France pendant la Revolution
et le Premier :empire."
Tickets for this lecture and for the
other lectures of the annual series
may be purchased for a nominal sum
at the office of the secretary, Room
112 Romance Language Building, or
at the door prior to the lecture.
Professor Dunham's talk will con-
cern itself with the 'reasons for and
theefforts of the 22 year war under-
taken against the rest of Europe,
during the French Revolution. The
ideals which prompted this conflict,
he will prove, still live in spite of the
ultimate failure of the French Con-
quest and the present success of the
Nazi effort.
Professor Dunham is qualified to
discuss the ideas and ideals of the
French people, since he has spent
many years among them, including
more than half of the first World
War. At present he teaches European
economic and French history. He
writes in the field of the economic
history of France in the earlier 19th

mas gifts for a family should come
from the parents themselves to the
children, even though originally do-
nated by a relief agency. This, in
their opinion, is a strong factor in
strengthening family morale.
Mrs. Dorothy S. Engel, executive
secretary of the Service, has found
many cases in her experience to sub-
stantiate this view. She tells of one
local family in which the understand-
ing of a Service worker made the dif-
ference between sorrow and suffering
and a happy united family.
A misunderstanding came up-the
kind of ill-feeling of which the germs
can be found in almost any family-
between a little girl and her step-
father. The girl, finally, would stay
away from home for hours after
school-sometimes till 10 o'clock; and
the stepfather, for his part, found the
situation more and more aggravating.
At last it got so that the father-
earning eiough to live on, but no
more-refused to buy clothes for his
stepdaughter. Faced with that sit-
uation, the mother went to the Fam-
ily and Children's Service.-
Adroit handling saved the day for
the strained relations within the fam-
ily. In buying the child clothes, the
money went first to the mother; the
clothes as a result, seemed to the
child to come from her parents, in-
stead of from an outside source.
In this way the child felt that her
parents loved her, just as their fail-
ure to provide for her had seemed to
her an indication that they didn't
want her. Her attitude changed, and
the friction in the= family was over-

(Editor's Note: This is the first of
a series of articles dealing with stu-
dent rcacticns before and during the
last war. The material used has been
obtained from The Michigan Daily
files of 1917.)
War in April of 1917 was not a
sudden affair that caught America
by surprise, but rather the result of
a series of incidents and charges
and counter-charges.
The actual declaration was ex-
pected several days before the Presi-
dent asked the Senate for the pass-
ing of the war resolution, and the
University was already considering
measures to be taken.
March 25, 1917. The students of'
the Universty held a mass meeting
to express their sentiments on com-
pulsory military training. With
President Hutchins in charge of the
affair, the student body discussed a
Congressional proposal to supply all
military equipment free of charge.
March 27.,The University was de-
clared placed in a position to aid
the country for the war effort. Stu-
dents were to be organized into ROTC
units under the supervision and con-
trol of the War Department.
Here is the War Department's
statement: "Eligibility requires all
applicants to be able-bodied men,
citizens of the United States and not
under 14 years of age."
The object of the War Depart-
ment's plan was to train men with
as little interference with civilian
life as possible by giving them drill

Angell Praises
Endorses Role Of Family
In Christmas Giving
The Christmas Bureau, Ann Arbor's
new clearing house for Yuletide char-
ity, was warmly commended in an
interview yesterday by Prof. Robert
Angell, of the sociology department.
Commenting upon the Bureau's
effort to promote family solidarity
by enabling parents to perform their
normal role at Christmas-that of
giver-Professor Angell said: The
Christmas Bureau combines in a
rather original way the reach and
efficiency of large-scale organization
with the sentiment and affection of
our traditional family life. As such
it seems to me it is a most ingenious
and worth while effort."
In further praising the Bureau's
activities Professor Angell said that
the charity administered through it
would have more lasting value be-
cause the Bureau is informed of the
real needs of families.
That both the University and the
community are also aware of the
value",of the Christmas Bureau is
evidenced by the extensive coopera-
tion it has received.
