TUESDAY, JULY 16, 1918

The true nature of the Belcher Is-
lands, located in Hudson Bay, was dis-
covered, by Mr. Robert J. Flaherty,
who will give an illustrated lecture
at 3 o'clock on July 26 in the Natural
Science auditorium, his subject being
"The Belcher Islands-Their Discov-
ery and Exploration." Mr. Flaherty
has spent six years in the Arctic'
countries, and has lived for several'
winters among the Eskimos on these
Islands and in Baffin land.
While min Baffin land Mr. Flaherty
set up a moving picture studio and
took films which he showed to the in-
habitants of the islands, who were
much interested in them because their'
customs differ so much from those of
the people living on the mainland.
Their language and dress is quite dif-
ferent, the islanders wearing garments'
made of eider duck feathers instead of
reindeer skin. That they know more
about the size and shape of the islands'!
than any explorers before Mr. Flaher-
ty, is shown in the fact that their maps
are far more accurate than any of the
ones made by the earlier discoverers.
More Student Help Wanted
Any students wishing to work their
way through the summer session may

Liquor ,Violators
Use Camouflage
Monroe, July 10. - Camouflag" in
the "full" sense of the word is be-
ing used by liquor violators in an at-
tempt to deceive the Michigan State
Constabulary troops who are patrol-
ing the Toledo-Monroe road to check
the flow of liquor into Michigan au-
thorities hold.
The first deception which the troops
uncovered was when one of the guards
passed his hand over a large basket
of sweet corn and changed it into li-
quor of the intoxicating variety. A
Detroit grocer was the camouflageur
and gained a berth in jail for his at-
Another iscident was reported in
which a funeral procession was stop-
ped and a view of the "corpse" was
asked. Strenuous objection was made
by the "mourners," but when the
troopers insisted the coflin contained
none other than John Barleycorn, his'
funeral was deferred.
The patroling of the road is ex-
pected to place a ban on the whole-
sale influx of liquor into Michigan. It
also has resulted in the arrest of sev-
eral Detroit autoists for speeding
while under the influence of liquor.
The troopers have establshed
headquarters at Temperance, 18
miles south of here.

When the President, called for men
to enter the nation's service there were
no specifications as to the capital, that
is, the financial circumstances, of
those who should respond. The draft
fell upon rich and poor alike. In Pas-
adena's contingent $100,000,000 in the
way of money was represented; side
by side with these sons of wealth were
those whose wealth was -summed in the
clothes they wore. The value of these
men to the army was their physical
endurance, amenability to discipline,
courage ,and initative under unfore-
seen conditions. Their potential val-
ue to the nation is not to be reckoned
in terms of money which is of use
only to express contrastsj A nation's
assets are its ditizens, especially those
who have talent and opportunity to
develop themselves in its behalf. Mere
are God only knows how many "mute,
inglorious Miltons," embryo scientists,
statesmen physicians, financiers, ready
or preparing to give the world their
best, who have instead been sacrificed
to Mars!
When w .remember that between 6,-
000 and 7,000 Michigan university men
are in the United States service in
one capacity or another; that Har-
yard's contribution is 5,600, and that
Yale's 4,800, are divided in the three
great army divisions, we see what dn
enormous amount of invested capital
these three' universities alone, irre-
spective of the 500 odd colleges and
universities in the country at large,
have put at the nation's service. It
is estimated that it costs about $5,000
to put a boy through the grades and
take him to commencement day in col-
lege. Not counting the young man's
future possibilities, the father who sees
his son put on khaki may well realize
the value of the gift he offers his
country. 0
As a rule, it has been the college
men who have been first to ansWer
the nation's call. They have had the
"vision splendid;" they have glimpsed
the ideal that teaches men to die for
their country as well as live for it.j
The halls of the great English univer-
sities were emptied at England's first
call, long before it had been heard in
London's gin palaces. The same re-
sponse has been made in America.-

New Fruit Station Head
West Plains, Mo.-The board of trus-
tees of the Missouri fruit experiment
station has elected Prof. Fred W.
Faurot to succeed Paul Evans, who
resigned. Prof. Faurot was pathol-
ogist of the Missouri fruit station at
Mountain Grove twelve years.

it is the most human document ever written by a fighting man,

breathing pages of this greatest of all trench stories brought
into action by the wonder of

The Greatest Product"m hi thc
History of o n Pi'r-
Vitagraph has spared not'Ding ic making "Over the Top"
the tremendous production the subject so richly dvA'e:e;.
Lois Meredith, James Morrison and a host of utheir screen
favorites make up an all-star cast in support of the 'fisting
Sergeant." 'Every modern innovation in motion picture sak-
ing, vast numbers of actors and actresses, many hundreds of
trained American soldiers and aviators-all have been assembled
by Vitagraph for the snaking of "Over the Top." ,
As a photo production alone,

achievement, but in addition it
HEATRE is one of the most thrilling, in-
tensely dramatic, deeply human
