MICHIGAN'S MILITARY PROWESS
Recent appointments for commis-
sions at the various training camps
tend to show with more firmness that
the traditional phrase, "Michigan rules
the West," has not lost its true signifi-
cance. In fact, one can almost say
with certainty, that there is scarcely
a school in the country whose repre-
sentatives at camp have shown such
ability, both athletically and mental-
ly. The advancements tendered them
give proof of their willingness to sub-
mit to strict discipline and to covet
obedience
Although many of the representa-
tives found themselves in the average
class and without commissions, few
if any will regret the extensive train-
ing they have secured, and will be
waiting to serve the nation. Their
willingness to enter the ranks at the
earliest moments, to drop their schol-
astic pursuits in time of war to pre-
pare for immediate service, all de-
mand our respect and admiration.
There is no reason why those who
return without commissions should
feel embarassed. Their loyalty is a
tribute to the community.
Michigan's representatives, then
have upheld in nearly all respects the
high standard of loyalty, aggressive-
ness and ruling prowess that we have
expected of them. Whether private
or officer, their fellowship should be
of value
The University need have no com-
punctions while its representatives
continue their present military prow-
ess. It may result even in a substan-
tial gain to this institution, in that it
will illustrate more definitely and op-
enly what can be expected of Mich-
igan men. The war will certainly have
some wholesome aspects.

SAYS JUHKEY COMIS
WOSI UHIES Of 9ALL
The Reerend Kelsey Tinks Turks
Will Be Most Despised People
After the War
"Turkey, far more terrible in mod-
ern torture than the cruelties com-
mitted by the Germans in Belgim,
will be the most despised nationon
the face of the earth when peace is
declared," said the Rev. Mead A. Kel-
sey Sunday afternoon in Lane Hall in
lecturing on "The Present Situation
in the Bible Lands."
"Mercy means nothing to the Turks
in Asia Minor," continued Rev. Kel-
sey in his denounciation of the whold-
sale massacres and deportations of
the peacful Armenians. "Hundreds
of thousands of women and children
have been slaughtered. As many more
have fled into the Caucasus mountains,
where they have starved to death while
waiting for rescurers to reach them
with supplies.
Outrages Still Being Committed
"Outrages of the violentest kind, ac-
cording to recent reports, are being
committed daily by these 'blood-thirs-
ty' people. Houses are looted, children
of both sexes killed in the streets,
women deported, and men murdered
in cold blood while protecting their
loved ones by the most ferocious of
all races-the Turks.
"Death, in the form of starvation
and pestilence, is facing all the Arm-
enian refugees. Something ought to be
done to help save human lives. Dona-
tions are welcomed by the Armenian
and Syrian relief committee.
Lecturer Appeals for Workers
"A vast amount of work has been
accomplished by university and non-
university men and women," continued
Rev. Kelsey, with tears in his eyes.
"The object of my appearance is to ap-
peal for workers to carry on our ap-
peal for help. It costs $3 a month
to support one child. Hundreds have
been provided for, but thousands are
still in want."
Immediately after the lecture a
number of men and women signed up
as workers, Miss A. Thomas, a resident
of Ann Arbor and an Armenian by
nationality, pledged herself to the
cause. Miss Thomas tearfully told the
1lecttrer of the condition of her family
in Asia Minor.
Three Brothers Imprisoned
"Three of my brothers were im-
prisoned by the Turks," said Miss
Thomas. ''My four sisters and mother
were cruelly treated. A friendly Turk
succeeded in aiding my brothers, and
the rest of my family to escape from
their captors into the Caucasus moun-
tains, after days of travelling. The
party travelled by night and hid in
day. A band of friendly bandits gave
them food, whidh saved them from
starvation until they reached Russian
missionaries.'
What Will Science
Accomplish Next?
New Photo-telegraphic Process Causes
Photos to Be Sent By
Cable
The Scientific American, in its is-
sue of August 4th, gives an interesting
account of photography by cable. For
some time, photographs, handwriting,
and drawings have been sent tele-
graphically and this has been found to
be so practical that several prominent
European papers make a feature of
publishing photographs of this na-

ture.
The new photo-telegraphic process
causes the picture to be transmitted
across the ocean as a plain cablegram,
made up of thousands of letters, each
of which corresponds to the light qual-
ities of a certain part of the picture.
The fluctuations of the electric cur-
rent corresponding to the variations
in the shading of the picture are re-
converted into a letter cablegram
which can be transmitted in the ordia-
ary fashion and from which the orig-
inal picture can be reconstructed.
