CORPS

NEED 21 MODE MEN
New Order of War Department Re-
quires Additional Men for Dich-
Igan Divisions
WANT MICHIGAN MEN TO ENLIST
According to a letter received yes-
terday by Dr. L. P. Hall, of the dental
department, from Sergeant Glenn M.
Coulter, '17L, with the three Michi-
gan ambulance corps now in training
at Allentown, Pa., at least 27 men are
G needed at once to save the company
from being dispersed or filled in with
other than university students. An
order just issued by the war depart-
ment to increase the sections from 36
to 45 men accounts for the need of
27 men to complete the sections of the
three divisions.
Sergeant Coulter urged that immediate
notice of the vacancies be given in
order that they may be filled as early
as possible. As soon as a sufficient
number of men have designated their
intentions of joining and left their
names with Dr. L. P. Hall, a recruit-
ing officer will be sent to Ann Arbor
to give the men their physical exam-
ination.
The men in the companies, the let-
ter said, are anxious to have the see-
tions filled with men from Michigan,
and are in disfavor of being split up
with other sections or have their com-
panies filled with outsiders. Ser-
geant Coulter believed any such move
would possibly break'up the spirit of
the sections and that outsiders with-
out college training would be less de-
sirable.
Those who are interested are re-
quested to get in touch with Dr. L. P.
Hall, phone 550-J, at once.
BIG AUDIENCE AT
INITIAL CONCERT
First Complimentary Program by
School of Music Faculty Pro-
nounced Success
The first complimentary concert of
a the summer by the School of Music

ing "Parla," a waltz song, Miss John-
son showed that her voice has gained
in strength and volume. She sang the
popular "Coming Thru the Rye" for
an encore in her last group. Miss
Johnson substituted "Soiweg's Song"
from Peer Gynte for the "Sunshine
Song."
The members of the School of Music
faculty will give complimentary con-
certs at 8 o'clock every Wednesday
evening throughout summer school.
The concerts are open both to the

session.

Plan lug Send- Off
for Company I
Expect to Receive Order to Moolize
About July 15; Appoint Fare-
well Committees
Plans for an appropriate send-off
for the members of Company I, who
will mobolize within a few days- were
made at a meeting of the military
farewell committee held in the office
of President Barry B. Hutchins last
Tuesday afternoon.
The meeting was opened by a gen-
eral discussion which was engaged in
relative to the departure from Ann
Arbor of Company I. Captain Volland
stated that they expected to receive
orders to mobolize about July 15 and
that they would probably leave the
city shortly thereafter. In view of
the indefiniteness of the date of de-
parture, it was deemed wise to ap-
point several sub-committees who
should take charge of certain features
of the celebration and be prepared to
carry out their part of the program
on short notice when the order for
departure should be received.
Appointment of Sub-Committes
A number of sub-committees were
appointed. E. B. Manwarning and W.
L. Waltz were appointed to have
charge of raising and dispersing a
mess fund. T. A. Lowry- and C. A.
Sink will act as program committee.
The inviting of the various military
and allied organizations of the city
will be under the direction of Ross
Cranger, E. M. Wurster and W. L.
Waltz. I J. Abbott, B. F. Schumach-
er and J. Karl Malcolm are to ar-
range for the serving of light refresh-
ments and the taking charge of a
send-off at the railroad station. The
military farewell committee closed
the meeting by a motion to extend a
vote of thanks to the Regents of the
University for their co-operation in
providing the use of Hill Auditorium
for this and similar occasions.
Members Present
The members who attended were:
President Harry B. Hutchins, E. B.
Manwarning, C. A. Sink, L. P. Hall,
H. M. Slauson, T. A. Lowry, L. D.
Wines, E. M. Wurster and Captain A.

ALICE FIVE CENTS
MAY1DAVE SOMMEB
BASEBALL TEAM
Plenty of Material to Orgnize One
of the iest Nines in Mih-
' gan
SEVERAL STARS NOW IN SCHOOL
A University team and some actual
games to be played sounds like a
myth, but plans are being formulated
for some real games this summer and
i enough interest is shown, the cam
sus baseball fans will have ther
tastes satisfied.
Late last night a notice was sent to
the office stating that plans were be-
ing made for an All-Campus baseball
team this summer, and that at least
a series of three games or more could
be played with the Ypsilanti Normal
aggregation during the course of the
Varsity Men in Summer School
The dope looks favorable to the as-
sembling of a good ball team, owing
to the fact that a number of this
years' Varsity men are attending sum-
mer school. Around these men a
fairly good team could be built. "Bill"
Niemann, one of Coach Lungdren's
stand-bys during the last few years is
ready to take an outfield position and
add his batting strength to the nine.
In addition to this Ohimacher, one of
the Varsity's pitchers, is also in trim
and ready to take the mound. In ad-
dition to these two men, a number of
class baseball men and Varsity try-
outs, subs and others are expected to
answer the initial call.
Meets Approval
Owing to the cancellation of all in-
tercollegiate athletics by the Board
of Regents this spring, it is expected
that the opening of the summer ses-
sion baseball dope will meet the ap-
proval of all those interested in ath-
letics and outdoor sports.
Those interested in the All-Campus
baseball team are urged to notify John
Edmunds at the Athletic office, in the
:Press building, Maynard street, or
"Bill" Nieman at phone 343 as soon
as possible. Practice will be started
as soon as a sufficient number of men
have designated their willingness to
play.
WILL GIVE RECITAL
R. K.,Immel Presents "The Servant
in the House"
Mr. R. K. Immel wil give a recital
of "The Servant in the House" at 8
o'clock tomorrow night in the audi-
torium of U-Hall. The play is a power-
ful dramatization of the Brotherhood
of Man.
Mr. Immel has been an instructor
in the oratory department for the last
few years, and posesses considerable
talent. During the entire year, his
services as a platform man are con-
tinually in demand throughout this
state and others.
Martha Cook Director at Boston
Miss Gertrude Harper Beggs, form-
erly social director of the Martha Cook
residence, is now studying in the sum-
mer school of Boston university.
