SCENE AT CAMP DAVIS WHERE ENGINEERS AND FORESTERS ARE
SPENDING THE SUMMER PUTTING IN PRACTICE WHAT THEY
LEARN.

At Hotel Dance
(By Black Fly)
Camp Davis, July 31.-Last Satur-
day night four of our skiffs manned
by our most handsome and nimble
swains defied the murkey waters of
Douglas and "Columbused" across the
lake to Ingleside, the lair of some fif-
teen or twenty fair damsels. The
cause for all this sculling and the
trick clothes that made their appear-
ance was a "skud" that was given for
us at the Ingleside Inn, far-famed
summer hotel and palace deluxe.,
Not Disappointed
We had long heard tales of the
beauty and hospitality of the nonnphs
a this famous watering place and we
were not a bit disappointed. Several
arguments that nearly led to real bat-
ties took place in out of the way
places about who was to cop this one
and who was to buy that one an ice-
cream cone but they were all. settled
before the first round was on.
After some three hours of the sub-
jugation and mutilation of the feet
we took our gandolas again and re-
turned to our lowly shacks to sneak
in a few hours sleep and to hope that
we might be invited again.
To Hold Visitors' Day
.The question of visitors' day this
year was taken up at the sing last
Friday night and it was decided to
stage the affair again this year on the
last Sautrday of camp, August 17.
However there is to be some de-
parture from the usual event this
year, in that instead of feeding the
some five hundred visitors that we ex-
pect to appear owing the high cost of
'fodder" and the small, number in
camp to stand the expense, it will take
he form of a basket picnic.
It is a little early to make any de-
inite annuoncement about the doings,
of the day but we can rest assured that

BULLEJIN ISSVED VHCING
MEN 10 SlAT IN SCHOOL
Statements and Arguments by Notable
Men Included in Contents
of Book
A war bulletin urging students to
remain in school until drafted and
to join the naval reserves so as to be
able to return to college to the new
naval training course to be offered
next fall, has been recently published
by the University. It may be had on
application at the registrar's office.
The bulletin contains arguments and
opinions of well known men, among
them, President Wilson, Pres. H. B.
Hutchins, AdmirAl W. S. Benson, Un-
ited States navy, Herbert Hoover,
Josephus Daniels, and Major Leonard
Wood, stating the advisability of get-
ting a thorough education before en-
listing, especially for those under
draft age. President Wilson says: "It
would seriously impair America's pro-
spects of success in this war if the
supply of highly trained men were un-
necessarily diminished. There will be
need of a large number of persons
expert in various fields of applied sci-
ence than ever before. Such persons
will be needed during the war and also
after its close. Those who fall below
the age of selective conscription and
who do not enlist may feel that by
pursuing their courses with earnest-
ness and diligence they also are pre-
paring themselves for valuable ser-
vice to the Nation."
Aside from these pleas a summary of
the University in war time is given
which outlines the war courses and
gives such regular information as
fees, next year's calendar, and organ-
ization and admission. Eight pages
are devoted to pictures of the campus
buildings, the R. 0. T. C., and Presi-
dent Hutchins and the late President
Angell.
Wehmeyer and Shaffer in England
Karl Wehmeyer, ex-'18, and Fred-
erick Shaffer, ex-'18, who enlisted in
the first federal ambulance section
that left the University last spring,
are at present attached to areo squad-
ron 839, stationed near London, and
save been in charge of a mumps ward
until recently.
N. C. Fetter Goes 6n Vacation
Mr. N. C. Fetter, of the University

lay for a month's vacation at Cavan-
