Practical work in physical training
will be offered during the summer ses-
sion under the direction of Dr. George
May. The courses will be optional and
no credit will be given. Owing to the
enlargement of the gymnasium and its
modern facilities and conveniences, it
is expected that a large number -of' the
summer session students will enroll
for the course. During recent summers
at least several hundred have taken
Some of the new improvements in
the gymnasium are the enlarged run-
ning track, now ten laps, the addition
of a large number of lockers and a
larger and more modern shower-bath
room. Director May also stated yes-
terday that students could make use of
the. outdoor running track adjacent to
Classes in this course will be held
as follows: Practical work, Monday,
Wednesday and Friday at 4 o'clock;
lectures, Tuesday and Thursday at 4
o'clock. These hours, days and the
kind of work taken up will be changed
and regulated according to the indi-
vidual needs of the students.
Locker tickets can be secured at the
treasurer's office at 50 cents. Students
wishing to register for the course can
do so at the gymnasium between the
hours of 10 to 12 and 2 to 5 daily ex-
cept Saturdays. Those intending to
take the work are urged to register as
soon as possible so as 10 prevent un-
necessary changes in the schedule.
During the summer session the gym-
nasium will be open each day until
5:30 o'clock, with the exception of
Saturday, when it closes at 5 o'clock.
NATIOIL FORESTS TO
Look for Scareity of Coal During
Cold Months Because of War
Washington, June 29.-To meet any
possible coal shortage in the West
next winter, more extensive use of
fuel wood from the national forests is
urged by the government's foresters,
who are advising both ranchers and
town' dwellers to be forehanded in
making arrangements for the supply
of their fuel needs.
The supervisors of the 153 national
forests will be instructed to afford all
possible facilities to local residents
wishing to obtain cordwood, which set-
tlers may obtain free for their home
use and which is sold at low rates to
persons cutting and hauling in order
to sell to others. Since the material
thus utilized is mainly dead timber, its
removal, it is explained, helps clear
up the forest and thus lessens the fire
menace. Timber which is insect-in-
fested, or old and deteriorating, or
otherwise damaged or undesirable
from the forester's standpoint, is also
disposed of for fuel purposes. The
demand in the next twelve months is
expected to break all records.
There is a possibility of a coal short-
age because of the increased demand
for coal by industrial plants and the
lack of sufficient means of transporta-
tion. It is believed that it will be
quite feasible and economical for many
western communities to utilize an in-
creased quantity of national forest
wood for fuel next winter. When dead
and down timber or other timber which
is deteriorating is not available for
cordwood, the cutting of mature liv-
ing trees will be permitted to the ex-
tent neebssary to meet demands.

Results obtained from the circula-
tion of information blanks to the stu-
dents of the University during last
semester's examinations have not yet
been tabulated by the secretary of the
University, but it is generally esti-
mated by the secretaries of the various
sctools that a large nunher of stu-
denttsswil be back next fall.
The questions asked were mainly
concerned with the student's prospects
of being back in school next semester,
and if not, why not. The negative an-
swers were on the whole because the
student intended to enlist, or because
of financial difficulties. One class in
lie law school, after having inveti-
gatedtand enumeratedathe blank,
showed that all but two per cent of the
students would be back next semester.
Of all the sports there is one in
particular that is engaged in mostly
by state institutions.
Strangely as yet comparatively few

In order to keep the game from be-

is fasened to each player's foot.
This also tends to keep each indi-
vidual from covering too much ground.
The game is played where there are
plenty of large rocks.
Each contestant is also supplied
with a heavy hammer.
The object of the game is to make
as many small rocks as possible of a
given number of big rocks.
It's astonishing to look around and
see how many of the Girls' League
