Members of the second training de-
tachment will have an opportunity
to train for officers' commissions, ac-
cording to a letter received fromn
Capt. Chesleigh H. Briscoe, Inf. R. C.,
executive officer of the committee on
education and special training. The
number of men recommended from
the detachment is not limited to two
per cent of the set quota, as has been
stated in previous orders. Work of
selection will commence*i mmedi-
The men will be instructed in three
arms of the service, in the field ar-
tillery school, the machine gun
school, and the infantry school. This
is the first time that the war depart-
ment has issued orders for sucv
Remain at University
As soon as the men qualify for the
officers' school they will not have to
take the required studies in the dif-
ferent branches of the detachment.
It is probablethat the men will be
kept here at the University and as-
signed to definite places later. No de-
tails regarding the assignments has
as yet been received by the officials
of the, detachment.
"Men of your detachment are eligi-
ble to appointment to officers' train-
ing schools in accordance with said
instructions," states the letter re-
ceived. "This fact has been called
to the attention of the department
commanders by the adjutant general
under date of July 2.
"Directions concerning application:
of men of your detachment for admis-
sion to said officers' training schools,
will be sent by your department com-
mander. The course of the me from'
your present detachment who are se-
lected by you as probable officer-na-
terial will be extended and they will
be held over and become members of
the next detachment. You will noti-

"The number of men recommended
from our detachment is not limited
to two per cent. of your quota, but
you will exercise the greatest care-in

Sickness for the week ending July
6 reached the remarkable low record
of .007 per cent. This is the lowest
level yet attained, and the medical
officers of ' the detachment hope to
even break this record. This is much
lower than the Camp Custer figure of
last week, when they equalled the
retord of last week's sick report of
the detachment. There is not a sin-
gle cantonment in the country that
has thus far been able to report such
a low percentage of sickness.
Company C still holde the record
for the smallest number of men sick,
reporting one man last week. Com-
pany B has shown improvement, and
is now second in the list, while Com-
pany A is last.
There was not a single man sick in
quarters last week. Five of the men
were held over from the week before.
with the exception of one, who will
probably be released early this week.
SIMONS RUN OYER
BY HEAVY TRUCK
Private William T. Simons of the
training detachment was hit by an
automobile truck while playing base-
ball at 3:15 o'clock Saturday after-
noon opposite the quartermaster de-
pot. At a late hour this morning,
Private Simons was resting nicely
and rapidly recovering from his in-
The injured man was inoculated
for typhoid feve arast before the ac-
cident. Private Simons was playing
baseball, and when one of the men
hit the ball into the road, he ran out
to pick it up, according to state-
ments from eye witnesses. A 'large
auto truck bore down upon him,
striking him in the face. The car did
not run over his body. The driver
applied the brakes about 15 feet
away. After the emergency brakes
were applied, the truck slid more
than 60 feet.
"The last thing I remember is that
I got a shot," replied Private Si-
mons when questioned Sunday morn-
ing about the accident. Immediately
after the accident he was rushed to
the infirmary, where he was tempor-
arily cared for, and then sent to the
hospital. He was unconscious Sat-
urday, but regained consciousness
Sunday morning. The man fails to
remember that he was playing ball at
the time of the accident.
officer candidates will, in many cases,
be the same men as those you would
ordinarily recommend for retention
as instructors of administration, so

The establishment of an officers'
training school at the University of
Michigan offers many advantages to
the members of the present detach-
ment. It will mean that they will
gain sufficient knowledge of the dif-
ferent subjects to the extent of teach-
ing members of future detachments
in the regular branches of study, or
n drills, and other army duties.
