Co. E Establishes
Exchange library
Members of Co. E were invited
this week to patronize an exchange
library erected in the Company or-
derly room to furnish a medium for
the exchange of reading material.
Consisting of five enameled shelves
in a new book case, the library pre-
sents the men with the opportunity
of trading old magazines and books
for new literature.
The one outstanding benefit ex-
tended by the exchange is the fact
thateach individual will not have to
purchase, with his own money, every
piece of literature he desires to read.
Under this new co-operative plan,
the individual cost to. the reader in
the company will be decreased.

Army doctors say that if Penicillin
a new drug, had not been used, Cpl.
Dunn would not have lived. Penicil-
lin has already proved better than
any of the sulfa drugs.
Since the Navy here happened to
have some Penicillin on hand, the
doctors were able to borrow it and
use it during the week following the
almost fatal accident. Further sup-
plies of the drug were procured from1
the Percy Jones Hospital.
Cpl. Dunn received his wound
when a .22 calibre rifle discharged as
le was holding it between his knees.
The bullet entered his abdomen,
traveled through both walls of his
stomach and pierced nerves near his
The bullet was removed three
hours after the accident and the doc-

he had been taken, gave him a 50-50

Nearly all the soldiers here know or
at least know of Lt. James. She's
the cheerful WAC officer whose
energy seems inexhaustible, who
does all our "arranging for" and
"talking to." Every project under-
taken by the soldiers here, this
page, for example, or the various
company shows, always immediate-
ly wins the support of Lt. James
and her sympathy is something to
have because it's enthusiastic and
it's expressed by actions and re-
sults. We think Lt. James does a
wonderful job, and as far as this
page is concerned, an indispensable

Visit Plant
Inspect New Wells
Of Ypsi Water Plant
The Term Seveners of Company
B-1 visited the Ypsilanti Water Puri-
fication Plant Friday in connection
with their course in water treatment.
The sanitary engineers were guided
on their tour by Mr. McNamee, who
has supervised all their visits to lo-
cal water plants.
Ypsilanti's plant was considered by
the inspecting engineers as a model
of space utilization and efficiency of
design. of all the modern equipment
in the plant, the army men found a
little tinkling bell improvised by the

operator on one of the chemical feed
devices the most interesting.
Three new wells are being dug at
the Plantnand pump houses are being
constructed to insure this important
defense area of a. steady and ade-
quate water supply. At present, sev-
enteen wells supply the Ypsilanti
area with its water needs, but these
will be put out of operation by the
new wells, which are considerably
larger and deeper and will eventually
drain the water out of the old wells.
Visit Sewage Plant
The engineers visited the sewage
plant of the town also, to inspect the
primary settling tank. This tank was
the first one of its type to be put into
operation anywhere in the country.
The construction company which un-
dertook the project had its engineers
study the problem of the construe~-
tion of the tank for eight months be-
fore any work was actually begun.
The entire plant is heated by the
sewage gas produced by the digestion
of the sewage. Excess gas is burnt
in a torch which has at times risen
as high as fifteen feet. The sludge
digestion tanks are also heated by
sewage gas.
