Engineers at Camp Bogardus Are Sub.
Jected to a Real Military
MICH.-preliminary work completed
and Fourth of July dissipations over,
the summer engineering camp at Top-.
inabee has assumed a military aspect,
with roll call at 6:20. Some diversion
creeps in, however, and on the Fourth
an impromptu baseball nine defeated
a Topinabee aggregation in a game in
which the scores were not counted.
Beginning at 6:20 the daily program
is as follows:
6:20--roll call; 6:30-breakfast;
7:30-field work begin; 11:30-din-
ner; 12:30-field work resumed; 5:00
-supper; 9:30-lights out.
The only exception to this schedule
is that on Saturday nights the elec-
tries are allowed to burn till 10:30 be-
fore being turned off at the power
Fourth of July was a holiday in
camp. After lunch two wagon loads,
of fellows left for Topinabee, where
a ball game was played' between a
team from Topinabee and a camp nine.
The Bogardus team was at a great dis-
advantage, due to the lack of practice,
but nevertheless had little troule in
taking the Topinabee team into
H. H. Caswell pitched for the camp
team, and held his opponents to a few
scattered hits. C. L. Williams handled
the mitt, and his receiving and'hitt+ing
were features of the game. Footbat1
captain-elect Raynsford made a name
for himself in the field by some acro-
batic catches. Caswell helped win
his own game by driving out a three-
bagger in the eighth.
An "indoor" baseball league will be
formed in the near future, so that ev-
ery night after supper there will be at
least one or two games going on.
Church Societies Hold Joint Social
A union social of the Ann Arbor
church young peoples' societies will
be held Friday of this week at 8:00
o'clock in the Baptist church parlors.
Entertainment, music, and refresh-
ments will be furnished. The first of
this series of socials was held last
Friday evening at the Methodist Epis-
copal church, at which more than 150
were present.
Fats and oils assumed many inter-
esting features and unheard-o uses
for a curious audience Tuesday. Prof.
L. H. Cone discussed the subject 10
his lecture on "Fats and Oils, Their
Productions and Uses."
He cited the cases of certain Eski-
mos, who would nearly starve to death1
when they could obtain no other than
lean meat. The Arabs, according to
his statement, who are great eaters of
olive oil, and who are able to do hard
work and perform feats of strength1
and endurance, owe this ability1
largely to the value of oils and fats in
their food found outside of meats.
Fats, he pointed out, contain two and1
one half times as much energy as sug-
a r T
The revolution of the soap industry

was also fully explained by Professor,
Cone. In place of manufacturing soap,
out of lye as was done in the past,
soap is now made of the animal fatsa
which heretofore went to waste. The
low grade greases are utilized by pur-

"There are 64,000 blind people in the

to relieve those who have trouble with
their eyes were discussed.
Professor Parker said that the suc-
cessful ways of getting parents to pay
more attention to the condition of
their children's eyes were the lecture
method, legislative enactment com-
pelling examinations, and co-opera-

The need for thorough examination
of all school children was discussed
by Professor Parker. "There are 17
million school children in the United
States, and of this number more than
10 million have either eye, nose or
throat trouble," said Professor Parker.
Much of this trouble can be done away
with if examinations by competent
men are given.
Some popular methods of eye treat-
ment were discussed. "The eye cup,"
he said "is no good and should not be
used." Dark glasses are to be con-
