THE NAVAL RESERVES
The navy department has ruled that
young men who enlist in the naval re-
serves.may return to their universities
and complete their courses. Through
co-operation of the University of
Michigan men whotreturn here will re-
ceive training fitting them to take the
ensign's examination for commission
at completion of the course offered by
This solves the problem of whether
to leave school, or whether to remain,
for those who have contemplated join-
ing the navy. The men will wear the
regulation naval reserve uniform.
They will be just as much a part of
the navy as though they were serving
in a destroyer on the high seas, and
will be getting just as good naval
training as they would at Annapolis.
There will be every opportunity for
securing a commission. All that is
necessary is natural ability and will-
ingness to work.
It is to be hoped that many men
take advantage Hof the opportunities
presented by the course. It should not
be lodked on however, as being mere-
ly a chance to escape immediate ser-
vice, in the possibility that the war
may be over before graduation from
(he University. .Such a viewpoint is
that of a slacker. The man who en-
ters the course should do it with the
idea of being of service to the country
as a potential ensign in the navy.
Each man should consider his situ-
ation carefully. If he is of draft age
and has not yet been incorporated in
a quota, or will soon reach that age,
the naval reserve offers, not an easy
way out, but a legitimate opportunity
to stay in the University and still aid
in pushing our war program.
PUBLICATION MEN IN SERVICE
Lieut Clarence T. Fishleigh, busi-
ness manager of The Michigan Daily
In 1917, is the first of the men from
the studnt publications of the Uni-
versity of Michigan to be decorated for
services rendered in the war. Tues-
day's paper contained an account of
his being awarded the Croix re Guerre
for bravery and ability as an aerial
We doubt not that all of these men,
in service will acquit themselves as
befits American men and sons of Mich-
igan. More will probably be decorat-
ed. It takes the stuff of men to work
for the University and keep up col-
lege work at the same time, as these
men did. It was an indication that
they had the instinct to serve, and
were willing to sacrifice themselves
and their interests. These abilities will
carry them far in the service of their
The student publications of the Un-
iversity should feel proud that one of
their workers has 'received such a
recognition. All honor to Lieut. Clar-
ence T. Fishleigh.

In Gas Attacks
Full beards are all the style in the
trenches, according to the Associted
Press. That is what the Germans in
the first line of battle are told, any-
The reason is to be sought in the
gas mas'k. Some of the authorities
hold that the gas mask will not pro-
lect any but clean-shaven faces, while
others claim that a dense hirsute
growth within the mask acts as an
additional filter for the poison gas.
But it must be a real beard, the reg-
ular patriarchal kind, and not merely
ular patriarchal kind, and not mere-
ly the bristles of seven or fourteen
days, says the Deutsche Tageszeitung,
an Amsterdam paper. The paper goes
on to say that a full beard is the
particular attribute to the German,
and should be cultivated as such. Be-
sides, adds the German writer naively,
it adds tothe "frightful aspect."
Notwithstanding the aspect, full
bearded men have stated that they
have been able to go through gas at-
tacks much more easily than their
cleaner shaven brothers. So if we
want to beat Germans at their own
game, it is up to all o us that are
bound' for the trenches to develop a
regular, full-sized beard.

Wake Up o--
Are you going to neglect the great opportunity which still lies open to
you-the privilege of serving Uncle Sam as a VOLUNTEER? Hundreds
are daily seeing the Light-are realizing the advantages offered them in the
U. S. Navy, and are eagerly flocking to the recruiting stations to find out if
they are fit to enter the branch of the service that offers them the most-THE
You are not doing your duty to yourself, to your relatives, and to your
country, if you do not do likewise. If you do not come up to the Navy stand-
ard, you will at least have had the satisfaction of knowing that you tried; you
will feel that it is not your fault that you are not wearing the Navy uniform.
The Navy offers you the highest pay, best living conditions, rapid pro-
motion-upbuilds you physically, mentally and morally-will make your
mother-your friends-proud of you, and will raise your own self-esteem.
The Navy gives you training in the greatest training station in the world.
It gives you a complete clothout outfit, government insurance, and liberal
allowance for dependents. Your pay is clear money. The Navy furnishes
you a splendid education, that will be of great value to you, during the war,
and after it is over.

EXCUSES. JOIN THE NAVY, AND LEAVE THE EXCUSES
TO OTHERS WHO ARE WAITING UNTIL IT IS TOO LATE.
Undergraduates of the University (any department) or High School
may enroll in the Navy; go into active training during the Summer vacation
and return in the Fall for the regular school year. You thereby have the
chance to get into service and complete your college course. After com-
mencement you can spend the next vacation period in 1919 either at the Great
Lakes Training School, Summer School at this University or in some work
along the lines you are being disciplined in at school.
You MUST be in the Naval Reserves in order to enroll in the special
Navy training course given at this University preparatory to taking the En-
