Fielding H. Yost and Benny Oos-
terbaan were among the first to ap-
pear yesterday in response to the
plea for donors. They were followed
by five members of Michiguama, se-

of faculty members was proportion-
ately high, but it was hoped that
students would turn out in greater
force today and tomorrow.

of Men's Rooming Houses, reported
a decrease over the preceding year
of 120 in the number of houses in-

"Undoubtedly the erection of the
men's residence halls has been the
principal cause for these changes,"
she wrote, because, 1) many private
homes formerly used for housing
men students were demolished to
make room for the residence halls;
2) the need for private rooming
houses was less, and 3) the standard
set by the residence halls made nec-

Students whose permanent home
addresses are in Ann Arbor, members
of the faculty, administrative staff,
or other university employees within
the age limits should register in the
city at their regular polling places.
They should not register in the Uni-
versity as our machinery is authorized
to handle only students from outside
Ann Arbor who cannot get home for
registration. I
Members of the federally recognized
active national guard; officers reserve
corps; regular army reserve; enlisted
reserve corps; and members of the
advanced corps, seior *division,

gineering Building.
Medical School: Recorder's Office.

sity Elementary School.

tion offices will be open at 7 a.m. and

istration is being handled by volun-
tary workers who receive no pay, stu-

sible to register between the hours of

mum staff may take care of other

hours. Please register at the earliest
possible moment.1
5. Registration Certificate: Each,
registrant will be given a registra-
tion certificate which he should carry
at all times, "as he may be required
to show it from time to time."

tion: Each student who changes his

should address a communication to'
the Selective Service Board in his
home city indicating his new address.

sponsibility and cannot be borne or1
shared by anyone.
Robt. L. Williams
Change in Telephone Numbers: As
a result of the formation of the War
Board, the telephone number of Miss
Edith Smith, Budget Assistant, has
been changed to 2197. The War
Board telephone numbers are 2143
(Professor Heneman. Executive Direc-
tor) and 2196 (Mr. Tibbitts, Secre-
tary). Please save delays by observ-
ing the above changes.
Campus Mail: The campus mes-
senger service is receiving from cam-
pus offices a large quantity of mail
with insufficient, and in some cases
illegible, addresses. Obviously, this
not only delays delivery of the poor-
ly addressed mail but also all other
mail, as directories must be consult-
ed by the messengers. With frequent
changes in personnel the problem has
become increasingly difficult. The
cooperation of everyone toward the
elimination of this problem is solicit-

WEEK DAY SHOWS at 2-4-7-9 P.M.

NOW! Stortina Today -

The epidemic of German measles
which has been roaming the cam-
pus almost steadily since Christ-
mas vacation shows some slight
signs of decreasing.
Ten students were admitted to-
day as compared with the larger
number Sunday and Monday. All
available space in the Health Serv-
ice is being utilized with forty pa-
tients hospitalized. Numerous
others have been confined to their
rooms and those living within close
distance have been sent home.
The Health Service has reported
a total of over 150 patients suffer-
ing from the highly contagious dis-
ease which lasts only three days
but takes from two to three weeks
to develop. The symptoms are
much like those of an ordinary cold
accompanied by fever and frequent
bumps on the back of the head.

Back in 1921, one could call an electric bill a
"light bill" with some degree of accuracy. Most
homes in those days used electricity chiefly for
lighting. But today a "light bill" covers a mul-
titude of home appliances!
Today your "light bill" might represent the
services of dozens of electrical household aids:
electric refrigeration, washing, ironing, vacuum
cleaning, radio, toaster, percolator, food mixer,
clocks, electric shaver. In many homes it also
includes electric cooking, dishwashing, furnace
fan or oil burner, attic fan, kitchen fan, heating
pad, sewing machine, teakettle, waffle iron,
sunlamp, bathroom heater, etc. - as many as
fifty electrical servants.
Tomorrow's uses of electricity are bounded
only by the limits of man's ingenuity. Mean-
while we are devoting all our efforts to furnish-
ing better electric service at lower cost. The
average price per kilowatthour paid by our
average residence customer today is 46 per cent
less than in 1921.

Thousands of improvements, big and little, developed
over a period of years, have made it possible to
reduce our residence rate voluntarily five times in
the last 20 .years. By thinking up new and better
ways of doing things at lower cost, and passing these
savings on to the customer, we have benefited both
the customer and ourselves. This is the way of prog-
ress. The Detroit Edison Company.
