Infantry Officers Go to Camps Lee,
Gordon, and Pike; Artillery
to Camp Taylor
Preparations are being made for
the new officers' training schools, and
the officials of the training detachment
have commenced looking over the men
for possible candidates. As soon as
the qualifications of the men to attend
the schools are made up and definite-
ly decided, the men will be sent to the
different camps.
The future infantry officers of the
detachment will go to Camps Lee,
Gordon, and Pike. The artillery of-
ficers will be trained at Camp Tay-
lor, while the machine gun men will
go to Camp Hancock, Ga.
This is the first time that such an
opportunityhas every presented itself
to men in training detachments
throughout the country. It will mean
that a large number of the men, who
are not stationed with the detachment
In Ann Arbor, and who succeed in
gaining commissions, will probably be
sent back to this city to act as in-
structors and officers of the coming
detachments. Nothing definite regard-
ing the selection or the stationing of
the future officers is as yet known.
There will be a trile more than two
per cent of the entire number of men
in the detachment sent to the different
schools. The government ordinarily
allowed two percent of the detach-
ment, but according to orders receiv-
ed some time ago, this number may be
The men will be instructed in three
arms of the service, in the field artill-
ery shool, the machine gun school,
and the infantry school. As soon as
the men qualify for the officers' school
they will not have to take the required
studies in the different branches of the
Weselyan Guild Holds Party

Drop Drops Mrs. Drop and Small
6 Drops; Dropped Into Jail
(From the Chicago Tribune)
Something dropped in the circuit
court clerk's office yesterday when
Mrs. Mary Drop dropped into drop a
little bill for divorce from John Drop,
present address the bridewell.
According to Mrs. Drop, Drop was
in the habit of dropping just about
everything that was droppable at
Mrs. Drop's head.
Drop is also said to have dropped
language that should not have bten
dropped all over the Drop place. Mrs.
Drop in her bill casually drops the
hint that she would like the custody
of the little Drops and would also like
Drop to drop her a little alimony oc-

The theme of this exciting and
thrilling story is almost unimportant,
but it is about two girls and one of
the men in the training detachment.
Not so very long ago one of the men
invited two girls to come to Ann Ar-
bor and see him. One of them was
from Chi, 'and the other from De-
troit. The Chicago girl arrived first,
and, accordingly, registered at the

Men of Second detachment Accomplish
More Than Members of First
Training Group
(By H. H.)
When asked how the present de-
tachment compared with the first al-
lotment of soldiers detailed to the Un-
iversity. one of the instructors replied
they were progressing even more sat-
isfactorily than the preceding detach-
This statement does not mean to in-
sinuate that the men who have left were
less willing or capable to learn. In
fact one of the most impressive char-
arteristics of both detachments is the
intense interest and eagerness of the
men to learn the different trades. This
point is brought out forcibly by com-
paring the work of the student and the
soldier, the latter obtaining almost
without exception a grade attained
only by the exceptional student.
Better Selected Men
The superiority of the present as-
signment is not due to a better spirit
evinced, but, as an instructor explain-
ed, is due to the fact that they have
been better selected for their work.
When the first detachment arrived
they were unclassified as to their best
line of work, and consequently much
time was wasted. This was especially
true with the carpentry squads, for by
the time that each man had been plac-
ed at the job for which he was best
fitted the eight weeks were about up.
Training is Varied
One of the most common miscon-
ceptions concerning the work of the
dettachments at the University is that
,they are all given exactly the same
training. After passing through the
various shops for the first time the
stranger cannot but feel a bit con-
fused at the number of different shops
and the training given in the various
groups. This number of shops is re-
quired, both because of the numerous
groups, each requiring its own partic-
ular training, and also because the dif-
ferent groups have changes in shop
Not only can every bit of mechanism
of the automobile or rifle be construct-
ed or repaired by these men, but also
their carpenters have erected a part
of their own buildings, and it is ex-
pected that more buildings will be built
to accommodate future enlarged de-
Shop Work Changed
Typical examples of the changes in
shop work are those of the gunsmiths
and chassis repair men. During the
eight weeks they are detailed to the
University they are given four chang-
es of shop for two weeks in each-the
machine, motor repair, forge, and gun
shops. In a like manner the chassis
repair men are distributed two weeks

Smash Repaired Cars
As the visitor leaves the last of the
shops his curiosity is aroused by a
heavy iron weight of between 400
and 500 pounds lying on the ground.
His curiosity concerning the use of
the weight is satisfied by one of the
attendants, who informs him that aft-
er a car has been put in good running
order, it is driven under this weight,
which is lifted up by a pulley, and al-
lowed to be smashed by the weight.
It is then straightened, repaired, and
put back into running order that it
may again be smashed.
