Krieger Organizes
Mechanic 's Music
Mr. Krieger, a former theatrical
organizer, is now connected with.
Company C of the detachment, and
is grganizing a band, and a glee club
among the men. From boyhood Mr.
Kreiger has been connected with this
work, and the experience he has ac-
quired is enabling him to develop
good organizations.
Last night 30 men signed up for the
glee club. After they have made some
progress, Mr. Kreiger proposes to
bring artists from Detroit to assist
in the programs. Several large con-
certs are proposed this summer with
the glee club, the band, and the vis-
iting artists contributings.
The movement has the sanction of
Captain Durkee, and if the boys pre-
serve the spirit and enthusiasm so far
exhibited, the success of the project
is assured, Mr. Kreiger believes.
Dr. J. T. Sunderland, of New York,
who was pastor of the Ann Arbor Un-

has held pastorates in London, Toron-

His subjects will be as follows:
July 7.-The Wonderful Life of Man.
July 14-Rints and Foregleams of Im-
mortality. July 21-A Religion for
Free Men and Free Nations. July

Needed Especially at Angell House to
Work on New Quota of
Because a large new quota has re-
cently been assigned to the Washte-
naw Red Cross, ,workers are much
needed at Angell House in making
surgical dressngs and at the School
of Music Annex for sewing depart-
ment. Any women in the summer ses-
sion who can spare the time will be
welcome especially at Angell House.
The sewing is more difficult and re-
quires some previous experience, but
the surgical dressings are quite sim-
ple and any amount of time, no mat-
ter how short, is a help.
A dressing called the first line
packet consists of five different kinds
of bandages which are used by the
surgeons in front line hospitals or
even on the field. A parchment pa-
per is wrapped around each bunch to
stand the sterilization process. All
the dressings are shipped to Chicago,
where a firm employed specially for
this purpose disinfects them and
ships them abroad.
New Quota Assigned
A new quota is assigned every
month to the Washtenaw County
headquarters by the central author-
ities, which receives its orders from
Washington. Then the county allot-
ment is divided between the local
groups so that each one has a speci-
fied amount to finish in a definite
time. Since the government has tak-
en over all the gauze factories only
enough material is allowed to com-
plete the assigned quota. Formerly
when all the supplies were exhausted
Angell House closed, but now a meth-
od of co-operation has been arranged
whereby the sewing department is
helped by the other workers.
Classes Discontinuedl
The classes in Red Cross work
which fitted women to be directors
have been discontinued for the pres-
ent on government orders.
The Ann Arbor RedrCross started
as a small society for Belgian re-
lief, with its offices in two rooms
above the gas office on Huron St.
When the work in gauze and muslin
was added, the headquarters were
moved to the women's library. The
division of the work into two branch-
es, the children's clothing and hospi-
tal garments, and the surgical dress-
ings made another move necessary,
and the home of President Angell and
the Annex to the old School of Mu-
sic were chosen. Since then many
lesser groups have developed, such as
the second ward society of 30 women,
the Bethlehem Church club of 200
members, and the Kresge unit of 15.
Arehitectral Exhbit Opens

Student Help Is
In Great Demand
There is a great dearth of students
who are willing to work their way
through summer session. Neither the
Michigan Union or the student Y.
M. C. A. has been able to supply the
calls from boarding houses and fra-
ternities for men to wait table for
their board. There are jobs in abund-
ance and men who want them should
apply either at the Union desk or at
the Y. M. C. A.
Since last fall it has been increas-
ingly difficult for employers of stu-
dent labor to get help. One board-
ing house proprietor remarked yester-
day that. unless he was able to ob-
tain assistance soon be would have to
send out of town. Several are run-
ning short handed.

(By {'. Philip Emery)
Long before this country entered
the present war, Michigan men began
entering military serviec of different
kinds, first one by one, then, after
war was finally declared, in larger
numbers, even in large units, organ-
ized or recruited at the University.
Some of these larger units have. re-
mained practically intact to this day,
composed exclusively of Michigan
men. Single individuals, or groups of
two or three, are scattered every-
where throughout our military organ-
