$10,000 FROMPAYMASTER
Only 70 Minutes Required to Pay Off
Entire Body of 700
Men
Approximately $10,000 was paid out
to the members of the second train-
ing detachment Tuesday afternoon.
The men lined up on North Univer-
sity avenue in front of the North
University avenue Ann Arbor Saiings
bank branch at 3:30 o'clock.
The entire number of 700 odd menj
were paid off within 70 minutes, mak-'
ing the remarkable record of paying
off one man in every six seconds.
Only one window was open, and one
clerk handled the entire amount.
A number of the men were surpris-
ed to find out the small sum they re-
ceived for their month's wages, but
they forgot to figure the allotments,
and the war risk insurance, which
took practically one-half of the reg-
ular pay.

I Had a Little Pony
I had a little money,
I put it in the bank,
I lent it to the government
To help buy a tank.
I saved stamps, I saved food.
I did without my candy,
Because I thought it very good
To have a bond handy.

SHUSH! ! A deep mystery. There
are reports going the rounds to the
effect that, the summer school di-
rectory might not appear until late
in the season, or at least until we
are packing our things for home, due
to the fact that it can't be printed un-
til late, and the prohibitive prices
in other printing shops. It would be
a pretty good suggestion for the b.
m. to request students through his
cols, to phone up the office if they
want to find out the telephone, ad-
dress, and home town of their girls
or beaux. How's that for service?

HOSTESS HOUSE SHOWS
EFFICIENCY IN WOR?

Many inquiries have been made re
garding the efficiency evinced by th
Hostess house in securing rooms, en
tertainment, or members of the de
tachment for the visitors. The sys
tem is thorough and up-to-date.
Whenever a person desires to se
a man in the detachment, that per
son registers at the Hostess hous
and an orderly is sent out for th
men desired. If perchance, the visit
or or visitors desire to walk aroun
before the man can get off duty a
arrive at the Hostess house, they te
the hostess in charge the exact hou
when they expect to return. In thi
manner the smallest amount of con
fusion is avoided.
As to the entertainment schem
the boys desiring entertainment re
quest o1 at the "Y" tent as soon a
they know if they are to be in th
city Sunday. The homes desiring t
entertain get in touch with the per
son representing their church on th
committee for home entertainmen
the members which in turn phone a
the names and addresses they hav
secured to Lane hall, where the a4
signments are made. The member
of the committee are then given tb
assignments that have been made t
their respective homes. Sunda
morning at mess the boys are give
their assignments and are asked t
get in touch with their hostess b

The members of the entertainmer
committee are as follows:
Mrs. Hopkins, Disciples; Mrs.

Mrs. DeBarr, Methodist; Miss Gooe
