Seventeen sections of the country
are represented by clubs at the Uni-
versity of Michigan. Three of these
are made up of students of the four re-
spective cities, five consist of members
from various states, two draw their
members from sections of the country
embracing many states, one from a
section of a single state, and three are
made up of alumni of high schools.
. Illinois Club Largest
The largest club of this type is made
up of students hailing from the state
of Illinois. Its membership last year
numbered 102 ien, and has for honor-
ary-members the deans of two depart-
ments, those of law and arts. The
Sucker state stands fourth among the
states in the number of students sent
to the university.
The Dixie club, made up of all stu-

sion, baseball season, the .all-campus
team will meet Millman's Ann Arbor
Independents in a fray which is sched-
uled for August 19, Ann Arbor's "Big
Day' The game will be played in the
morning, West Park to be the scene
of battle. .
The merchants of the city have pet
up a purse for the contest, 60 per cent
of which will go to the winners and
40 per cent to the losers. The man-
agement of the summer session league
states that the amount which the all-
campus team will receive will square
up all debts of the league.
Millman's Independents have always
had the reputation of being a strong
team while the summer students, with
George Sisler at first, "Tommy" Hugh-

good players at other positions should
make a scrap that will be worth see-

Those in charge of the women's
league this summer state that all af-
fairs have been marked by a better
attendance and greater interest than.,
any undertakings of the league in the
past. The attendance at this sum-

been on the continent for some time.
As many of the student travelers went
on cattle boats and with bicycles or
motorcyeles, chiefly for the sale of
adventure, friends here believe that
they are making the best of the oppor-
tuni e<, and that some of them will
not come back for school this fall, but
will remain until the war is over.
Among the students now on the con-
tinent are John T. Naylon, '15, Carlton
Jenks, '15, Wilbur Davidson, '15 and
Bruce Bromley, '14.
The last word heard from Frances
T. Russell, '15, who has been trav-
eling through Europe on his motor-
cycle, was from Brussels, Belgium. He
intended at that time to leave in a few
days for Paris. He is a member of the
Beta Theta Pi fraternity and his home
is in Grand Rapids.
Former Student Receives important
Paul Scott Mowrer, who attended
the university as a special student
from 1905 until 1908, has been ap-
pointed London correspondent for the
Chicago Daily News. The position
comes as a promotion from the Paris
ofce, and is considered one of the
best foreign places. During the Balk-
an war, Mowrer went to the front and
reported events directly.
Professor Has light Cousins in Army
Among those who are worrying
most, is Professor Carl 0. Sauer, mem-
ber of the faculty of the Massachu-
.etts State Normal College, and a pro-
fe sor in the geology department here
during the summer. He announced to-
day that he has eight cousins in the
tGerman army, all of whom are in con-
siderable danger, according to reports
received recently. Seven of Profes-
sor Sauer's kinsmen are in the.Wur-
temburg corps, which is protecting the
Alsace-Lorraine frontier against the
vigorous attempt of the French to re-
gain their former territory.
The other cousin is in the Bavarian
corps, and Professor Sauer is uncer-
tain about its present location. At the
beginning of the war, two of the cous-
ins were serving the one-year volun-
teer term, and the other six were mem-
bers of the reserve force.
As proof that war was planned be-
fore the open breach oetween Austria
and Servia, Professor Sauer refers to
a letter which he received from one of
his cousins just before the hostilities
began. The writer says that there
was every indication of a coming fight
in his section of Germany and that
open preparations were being made in
every quarter.

Current Number of Camp Bogardus
Paper Contains "Half-tone"
of Barber
Camp Bogardus engineers, who pub-
lish- a weekly camp blue print paper
entitled "The Black Fly," have issued
the third number, which they pro-
nounce the best literary effort yet pro-
duced by the camp.
The first page contains a "half-tone"
illustration of the camp barber, giving
an adequate impression of the tonso-
rial operations of the engineers during
the summer when they are compelled
to carry the axe and transit. There
are no fancy chairs and not a single
bottle of "dope." The outfit comprises
simply a crude bench, a pair of scis-
sors and a comb.
Several new departments have been
started in the paper. The "advice to
the love-lorn" editor received a note
from a Swedish gentleman asking how
he could win the love of Sadie Klutz,
a girl he had met at Topinabee. The
editor has informed him that G. Bal-
lentine is the man to ask. The per-
sonal column has also made its ap-
pearance and chronicles the doings of
the camp society.
The "big" story tells how the assist-
ant dean's skill with the sextant was
fully demonstrated and forever placed
belond dispute. A mammoth pine near
"25 State Street" had been "proved"
by the dean to be exactly 107 feet
high. The safety committee of the
camp decided that it would have to be
cut down as it was in danger of falling
during a wind storm, and in doing so
might hit someone. After the giant
was on the ground the tape line was
brought and the tree was found to be
just 82 feet tall. The dean insists that
the instruments are faulty "and we
can prove it!"

ment, is still unheard from. The party1
