Members of Majo' Wilson's Military
Course Inspect Mt..Clemens
Training Quarters
(Staff Correspondent)
With Major C. H. Wilson's Forces at
Selfridge Aviation Camp, Mount Clem-
ens.-Twenty-seven engineers enroll-
ed in Major Wilson's military courses
at the University of Michigan inspect-.
ed the plant here last Friday morning
and afternoon.
The students left Ann Arbor on the
6:37 o'clock train for Detroit, via the
interurban to Mount Clemens. A mot-
or boat, which was chartered by the
party for the remainder of the trip,
arrived at the aviation camp at 10:30
March Through Camp
"Attention!. Fall in! Right face!
March!" were the orders issued by
Major Wilson -to his men at the en-
trance to the field. The ranks were
quickly formed and the men, with
Major Wilson and Private Lenz of the
Michigan National Guard, heading the
column, marched through dust a foot
thick to the officers' headquarters.
After a brief delay Private Len
showed the men through the aviators'
barracks, several of the buildings and
the co-operative store, where a halt
was made for a good sized breakfast.
Visit Hangars for Planes
After partaking of the light break-
fast the guard escorted the party
through the 12 aeroplane hangars.
Each hangar will hold from six to
seven machines, depending on the size
of the aeroplanes.
The buildings are thoroughly mod-
ern, and are similar to those erected
on the other U. S. aviation grounds.
They are approximately 300 feet long
50 feet high, by 100 feet wide. Each
hangar has a concrete floor, steam
plant, and a non-leakable roof.
Room for 70 Machines
Inside of six weeks 70 machines
of the standard United States instruct-
ing type are expected to be housed
in the hangars. At the present time
there are about 20 aeroplanes making

Observatory to Remain Open Two
More Nights for Visitors
Nearly 60 students visited the Ob-
servatory between 8:30 and 11:15
o'clock last night. Last year there
were about 100 at the Observatory
each visiting night. The Observatory,
will be open to visitors tonight and
tomorrow night.
Opportunity will be given to look
at the moon, and possibly several of
the largest stars, through the enor-
mous telescope. Different astronom-
ical instruments are also on display
in the building.
Admittance to the Observatory in
one of the three sections announced
in the last issue is free to all persons
securing tickets from the summer

It Is Such a
"Why You Shouldn't Worry About
the Draft"; Figured to Fine
A clever exposition on the draft was
recently read, so it is said, in the regu-
lar session of the members of the
house of representatives} tat Wash-
ington. The work is more or less an
argument in favor of the draft, and
is said to be dispelling gloom through-
out the country
it reads as- follows:
"Everyone has to register You are
either drafted or you are not drafted.
If you are not drafted you have noth-
ing to worry about, and if you are
drafted, you have two alternaives. You
are either put in the Home Guards or
are sent abroad. If you are put in the
Home Guards, you have nothing to
worry about. If you are sent abroad,
you have two alternatives. You are
either put in the reserves or sent tb
the trenches. If you are put in the
reserves, you have nothing to worry
about, and if you are in the trenches,
you have two alternatives. You are
either shot, or you are not shot. If
you are not shot, you have nothing to
worry about, and if you are shot you
have two alternatives. You either get
better, or you don't get better. If you
get better you have nothing to worry
about, and if you don't get better you
can't worry any more, so why worry
about the draft."

Give Four Signal Corps Men Complete
Outfits; Send Soldiers Clip-
ped Stories
The equipment for eight single beds
In the French hospitals was shipped
recently by the local chapter of the
Daughters of the American Revolution.
Each set consists of 36 pieces such as
sheets, pillow slips and convalescent
gowns. Altogther 390 articles were
sent and a surplus of 210 was turned
over to Mrs. L. P. Hall.
Each of four men in the signal
corps was presented with an entire
outfit of knitted garments besides an
army blanket. The same was given to
three men in Company I.
The work of the clippings bureau
is proving successful. The plan of.
sending to the soldiers short stories
clipped from the current magazines
was popular during the Spanish-Amer-
ican war and therefore has been taken
up again.
