THRIEE MEN NEEDED'
IN AUUMO UCE CORPS
Extra Students to Fill Vacant Ranks
at Allentown Leave
This Week
Michigan's three ambulance corps
at Allentown, Pa., will be supplied by
24 more men, who registered last week
with Dr. L. P. Hall of the dental de-
partment. The extra men have taken
the physical examinations, and have
received orders to be ready to leave
as soon as possible for Allentown
where they will be enrolled.
The required quota is 27 and those
who intend to enroll can do so if ac-
tion is taken immediately. The call
for additional men was caused by the
increase of the units by the war de-
partment. In case the three ambu-
lance corps can not be filled by Michi-
gan men they will be dispersed or have
the ranks filled with other than Uni-
versity students.
Several of the men who failed to
qualify in the physical examinations
prior to the departure of the three di-
visions, have left for Detroit where
they will take the examination under
a federal ofilcer.

SAYS UFALLS WILL RE
Professor Scott Illustrates Lecture on
"Niagara' with Number of
Slides
"Niagara Falls will eventually be a
series of small cataracts and Lake
Erie will sometime be drained," said
Professor Scott in his lecture on "The
Geology of Niagara Falls" at 5 o'clock
yesterday afternoon in the auditorium
of the Natural Sciene building.
After showing a number of slides
of Niagara as it is today Professor
Scott continued, "For geologists, the
Falls are one of the most accurate
time measures in the world. The Falls
have receeded along a seven mile
gorge since the Niagara River came
into existence. At present they are
moving at a rate of between four and
five feet a year. Twice the volume of
water flowing over the cliffs has been
reduced by seven eighths of its
quantity when the Huron, Michigan,
and Superior Lakes found more North-
erly outlets into the St. Lawrence riv-
er, thus making the rate of recession
much slower than four feet a year.
"The gorge shows corresponding
change at the parts worn down during

is shallower and narrower. The age J T ee14 a
of the river as measured by the gorge y
is 35,000 years.
Lake Erie Will Be Drained At Least Cultural Talk Is Indulged
"In the meantime, the falls continue in by the Laborers on
to wear their way back towards Lake the Campus
Erie. When they finally wear down
the cliffs that rise above the level of Doc May's old adage, "A sound mind

I met a charming German lass
And we went out to dine.
I asked if I might have a kiss,
I swear she answered, "Nine."
So I began, but on the sixth
She drew away, ' 'Ach, nein!"

AN AMBULANCE SONG FROM

(Tune: "Oh, Johnny.")
Oh, Johnny, oh, Johnny, why do you
lag?
Oh, Johnny, h, Johnny, come to your
flag.
Your country's calling. Can't you
hear?
Don't sit around while others do all
the fighting.
You must, oh, Johnny, oh, Johnny, get
into line,
And help to crush the foe.
Now come with us to France,
Drive a Ford ambulance.
Oh, Johnny, go, Johnny, go!

Merely one little patch of powder on

It's really easy to write good poetry.

What's more, it is good advice.

men engaged in the work are stu-

are putting themselves in trim for'
next year by pounding bricks and
shoveling mortar.
Time flies merrily over there as
well as dust. It is not uncommon to
hear two grimy ones talking about the
good points of Shakespeare as com-
pared to Ibsen, that is, when the boss
is not around. As for muscle, well,
when class football starts some of the
so-called campus athletes had bet-
ter guard their laurals rather careful-
ly, for after a man has wrestled with
a pick and shovel for 11 hours a day
a little job of shoving aroundsa man
or two in a football game looks like
playing tiddldy-winks on a rainy day.

I have led while others followed in amateur finishing for twelve
years. Now we are still leading. We guarantee perfect results
or no charge. We give you "Peace Time Results" as we have
a plenty of Metol (which we could sell at $5o.oo per lh.) and
we venture to say that no other firm is using Metol for finishing.
If you want the best results you will bring your films here.
