Renovation Of
Buildings Is
Considerable remodeling and repair
work is being done on several of the
University biuldings and on the
School of Music building. The work
that has been in progress on the
School of Music building for the last
week consists of extensive renovating
and redecorating on the inside and
outside of the biulding. The outside
is being repainted and a new roof
put on. The inside is being redecor-
ated and repaired throughout, which
will help maintain the usual good ap-
pearance of this building,
The repairing of roofs of several of
the University buildings will be start-
ed soon which will cost a large sum
according to Irving W. Treuttner of
the Buildings and Grounds depart-
ment. The buildings to be repaired
are, Alumni Memorial hall, old Uni-
versity hall, old East hall, Tappan
hall, Waterman gymnasium, and the
west Engineering building. The ex-
pense resulting from these roof re-
pairs will be taken from the general
maintenance fund.{
Work was started yesterday on the
remodeling and redecorating of rooms
105 and 107, Mason hall, in order to
make.a private office for the new reg-
istrar who arrived here to assume his
duties early last week.
Other work which was recently
completed by the - Buildings and

Classes At Camp Davis Make
Added Improvements Yearly

Situated on Douglas Lake, about 141
miles southwest of Cheboygan is
Camp Davis, which is used by stu-
dents of the civil engineering de-
partment. The camp has about 3,700{
acres of forest land and has been de-'
veloped solely by the students who
have spent the summers there. It
was founded in 1909 by Professor
Davis, from whom it received its
name. The camp is one of the first,
if not the first of its kind where
university men are given courses in
Up until last summer every civil
engineer, who wished to receive a di-
ploma from the University, was re-
quired to spend a summer at the
camp, but now it is no longer com-
pulsory but optional. Anywhere from
70 to 80 students can be accommo-
dated during the summer months.
It has been a custom since the
founding of the camp for each class
at the end of the summer to contri-

Michimasa Soyeshima of ;Japan todayt

Prohibition of opium smoking- in
China, where there are ten millian1
addicts, would be a far greater and
mo're serious problem than the prohi-

which has been no easy task Count
Soyeshima asserted.

suggested an international opium,

agreement among the powers for the
suppression of the opium traffic in

The Frosh Bible,, annual handbook
of information, instruction in the col-
lege songs, and book of etiquette for
the freshman class, will come from
the press within a month under its
new name, the Freshman Handbook.'
The booklet is edited by Chas. A. Stev-
ens and published by the Student
Christian Association. It is about the
same size as that of last year, con-
taining 176 pages.
Among the new features, there is
a message from Pres. Clarence C.
Little. The title pages are illustrated
with cartoons, and the women's sec-
tion has been enlarged.
About 4,000 copies of the handbook
will be printed,' making about 400
more than last year.

Offers Must Come Through Proper
Diplomatic Channels, Say
The French
(By The Associated Press)
Paris, France, July 23.-The French
government, it was asserted today,
will take no official cognisance of the
alleged peace terms of Abd-el-Krim,
the Moroccan war lord, as published
today In a London newspaper and the
Paris Quoquidien, organ of the Parlia-
mentary majority in the Chamber of
At the foreign office today the corn-c
ment on what was termed "A-el-
Krim's (peace drive)" in both Lon-a
'don and Paris was that France can-u
not entertain any opposition pending
towards a cessation of activities in
Morocco unless they are transmittedĀ°
through the proper diplomatic chan-
nels; that the Riffian chieftan wast
aware of what he termed Francey
would accept, as he had been official-
ly informed on this point through
Spanish official channels ten days ago.F
Paris, July 23.,-Three American e
aviators who have volunteered for
service for France against Abd-el-
Krim in Morocco have decided to leave1
LeBourzet near Paris Thursday. They
will pilot their own planes to MoroccoE
instead of using the French Commer-
cial Line to Rabat. The units, which
is undercommand of Colonel Charles
Sweney, of Seattle, Washington will
include seven or eight aviators and
several newspaper correspondents.
The delay in starting for the scene
of operations is understood to be the
reported lack of pursuit planes in the
Moroccan front, the American de-
manding if they are obliged to go up
in heavy bombing planes there should
be ample protection for them to carry
out their bombing operations without
useless losses.
Pope Pus in Good Health
Rome, July 23.-A newspaper today
published a report that Pope Pius
had been taken ill, but not seriously,
and that his condition would neces-
sitate a complete rest.1
When told of the fact the pontiff
smiling said to his informer : "I will
read the bulletin of my illness tomor-
It was asserted today by Vatican
officials that the pontiff is in the best
of health; ' that he was showing ab-
solutely no effect from his arduous
Holy Year labors and was insisting on
continuing his personal work, in ad-
dition to his routine.

house, boat house, sidewalks, and
other useful things which are con-
structed by the students.
Many improvements have been made
since the camp was first started when
there were only tents to live in and
the camp was entirely surrounded by
woods. Now small cottages, with ac-
commodations for four, are available
to the campers.
Another interesting feature about
the camp is the fact that it has been
ilotted out on such a scale that all
the cottages are equally distanced
from the centre and are balanced on
either side. Even the interior of the,
cottages have been perfected in this
Each student going there from the
University has three days of prac-
tical work when he is put in charge
of whatever is going on. The class
rotates around in this manner so that
every student, by the end of the sum-
mer has been in charge and, thereby,
has much experience.
Prof. Clarence T. Johnson, of th
surveying department, is director of'
the camp, having held that position
since 1911.
The biology section is also located
on Douglas Lake and is not far from
Camp Davis.

London, Eng., July 23.-The long

of the cabinet, announced in the house
of Commons by Premier Baldwin. to-
day, is that four new cruisers shall
be laid down in the current financial

this is a compromise, and doubtless

Is understood that the full demands
were for at least five cruisers yearly.

strenuously opposed to committing
the country to a building program in
future years and in this respect the

be on the side of economy, has yield-
ed to threats of resignation on the
part of W. Bridzeman, first lord of
