Co. 591 went into the Argonne and
were attached to the fourth French
Division of infantry.
On the 13th of September, 1917,
the Michigan company which trained
on old Ferry Field first went into the
real fighting of the War in France. It
was 17 degrees below zero before
Christmas, the coldest winter France1
had ever seen. The Michigan boys
suffered from lack of clothing-socks
with holes in them, etc. The boys
could not take a bath and were liter-
ally covered with cooties.
Paul Wilcox, Charles Cummings
(brother to Dr. Cummings of Ann
Arbor, and Walter Waitrand were
gassed and removed to a hospital in
the Argonne for five weeks. Other
members of the company were sick
with the flu.
After a hard winter in the Argonne,
Co. 591 went into the March offensive
in Verdun. The shelling was so bad
that they had to work night and day
three weeks taking care of the wound-s
ed. Company 591 was sent back ofs
the first war zone for a month's rest. 1
Sent Back To Verdun
In May, 1918, they were sent backu
to Verdun where they remained untilc
the last of August. Company 591 p
was then attached to the 29th Frencha
Division of infantry. Orders camer
the last week in August to go into the
"big drive" of the war. Company u
591, with the 29th French Division c
of infantry, left Verdun travelingd
many miles past Chateau Ferry Sois- e
sions, past the Hindenburg line, intop
the terrible fighting in Jourgney
where a number of the company were
fatally -wounded. Among the deadg
were, Van Boyd of Charlotte, Dean0
Scroggie, Medical School of then
University. More than half of thet
company went to the hopsital during h
the "big drive" of the war.
After the Armistice, Company 591
went into Belgium and Germany b
then returning to the United States
in April, 1919.

Training In Public
Service Given Here
(Continued from Page 1)
ministrators for public and private
life is gaining impetus. Work along
that line was done by the old New
York Bureau of Research in 1912.
while in 1920 Syracuse University
started a curriculum in public ad-
ministration. More recently Min-
nesota and California have both
offered such work.
One question frequently propound
ed by Professor Benson is whether
pay is at all satisfactory for the
University trained man who enters
public service. "Already in many
cases remuneration of trained men
in public work corersponds to com-
peitation in private work," he says,
adding, "Of course administrator's
salaries in public service never reach
the top salaries of private industry,
but a survey of bur graduates showed
the average salary after 12 years in
the field of public administration to
be $4,500.

Big Intramural Sport Program
Proves Popular Summer Feature

Estep and Bishop with Bourn and
Fuqua the runnerups. Only four
teams took place and the matches
were run off between Aug. 10 and 12.
Singles winner in the same popular
sport was T. B. Estep, who beat out
14 other entrants. W. R. Bishop
pulled in second. The games lasted
from July 15 to Aug. 6.
In the first flight of golf run off
between July 21 and, Aug. 1, Ed Gog-
gan was low man, with Clarence
Neuhaus second low. 19 individuals
participated. The championship flight
ended with Walter Welty leading the
pack, A. Graham being second. 38
summer students entered, with the
elimination starting three days earl-
ier than the first flight but ending the
same day.
Baseball flourished this summer,
with two leagues pounding the apple.
Winners of the Education League
were the Tigers, who won 6 and lost
none, to beat out the second place
Panthers, winners of three games, los-
ers of an equal number. Tied for the
basement position were the Bees and
Indians who lost four games while
winning half that number.
The local gas-house gang of Cards
won six games and lost only two to
win the University League going away
The Faculty (believe it or not) was
second with five won, three muffed.
The Cubs were third, the Chemists

'Speak Softly And
CarryB BigStick' -
Gehringer's Motto
CHICAGO. Aug. 19.-(i-P)-A little
revision of Theodore Roosevelt's fa-
mous "speak softly and carry a big
stick" motto explains why Charles
Leonard Gehringer, the Detroit Tig-
ers' great second baseman, is up there
battling for the American League
batting leadership.
The "speak softly" part of it come#
naturally to Gehringer, who not only
speaks softly but speaks seldon. The
"big stick" he changed to a "bigger"
stick about a month ago with the re-
sult he has jammed into the clubbing
struggle with the Yank's Joe Di-
Maggio and Cecil Travis, Washing-
ton's sensational youngster.
Although he had been getting his
base knocks regularly enough to be
up among them most of the season,
Gehringer, king of the American
League's second basemen and with
plenty of supporters who think he is
the best in either major league, decid-
ed to try a bigger stick. He shifted
from a 34-ounce weapon to one seal-
ing 37 ounces, and his average start-
ed to mount.
DETROIT, Aug. 19.-(P)-Detective
Lieut. Charles A. Hayes, police de-

"Report Me and My Cause Aright"

Cowboy Of Old Southwest Gives
Way To Sheep Men's Invasions

.. .so spoke the dying Hamlet

COYOTE CANON, N.M., Aug. 19.-
(MP)-The mesas are mist with tears
of the Southwest's romantics-shed
over the fate of the cowboy.
The cow waddle--that rootin' toot-
in' son of the range-has gone over,
spur and saddle, to the sheep man,
blasting another mellow tradition of
the western ranges--that a waddie
never gentles up to a mutton.
Back of it all is Uncle Sam, who
has raised the old bunk house ante
to $100 a month and feed for range
riders on the Indian reservation.
They're Right Particular
Not many hands have left the cow
critters yet, principally because the
federal Indian Service has particular
cowboy standards and matriculation
is difficult.
A waddie must be a dyed-in-the-
wool-beg pardon!-cow hand be-
fore he qualifies for wages on the

Some Are Rodeo Men
Their life on the vast reservation
domain includes supervision of In-
dian sheep grazing methods, round-
ups and minor repair jobs on stock
water developments. At sheep dip-
ping time they work at the vats.
Many of the old time waddies, are
rodeo performers, men of the best ro-
Imantic tradition.
Others are graying cow men, some
of whom perhaps have known the
vicissitudes of cattle ownership-
burned range, high feed, low water
and ruination beef prices.
All, however, have the great good
humor and weather beaten faces of
men who ride the range horizon.

These words sum up the ardent desire of every man to be fully and


represented before his fellow men.
