Doughty Soldiers
Drink Their Tea
Seven hundred and fifty tea hounds
are loose on the campus, masquerad-
ing under the disguise of detachment
men. Perhaps the trend of the times
does demand that they be on more
familiar tefms with gasoline and Pol-
arine than any of the more delicate
beverages, but nevertheless they are
showing something of the spirit that
their Baston forefathers exhibited at
their Boston forefathers exhibited at
gallons of Ceylon's best, iced and
everything, at one setting.
This was the actual displacement
recorded at yesterday's lunch at the
Union. Of course there were a few
little entrees to occupy their attention
between sips, such as 175 chickens, 10
bushels of potatoes, 350 loaves of
bread, and 15 gallons of ice cream.
The men are not accostumed to
quite such an aristocraticmend as an
every day occurrence, and finally con-
cluded that the occasion must have
been Denny's, the chef, birthday. Yes,
boys, probably mother sent him a box
from home with the suggestion that]
he share his dainties with the boys.1
Mechanics Raid
Talk about raiding No-Man's Land!
The nightly raids by the Allies in
the different sectors on the western
battle front may be a trifle more dan-
gerous and a trifle larger, but it would
take some night raid to compare to the
minature raid members of the detach-
ment made on the three lone trees in
Dr. R..E. Drake's apple orchard yes-
terday afternoon.
Dr. Drake, before leaving on his va-
cation, called up the training detach-
ment and willed them his apple trees.
A squad or more men left the gymnas-
ium in one of the large army trucks
for the scene. Within half an hour the
three trees were stripped clean.
Several members of the detachment
who were so unfortunate to stand un-
der the trees while they were being
shaken, stated last night that they
were in dire need of good steel helmets.
There were about 17 bushels collected
and distributed among the three com-
Saginaw, Mich., Aug. 8.- Captain
Frank a Picard, general staff at head-
quarters, of the 85th Division, now
overseas, has sent home a stirring
message which 'will remind many of
his friends of the days when he was
quarter-backing the University of
Michigan football eleven on the west-
ern gridirons. "Pic's" message con-
tains a punch which has an appegi to
every red-blooded American citizen.
The messge is to Postmaster Henry
E. Naegely, of Saginaw, and follows:
"Arrived safely overseas, no bands
playing nor crowds cheering, but a
spirit that cannot be downed sends
patriotic cry after cry from the
humble privates on board this ship
as we lift anchornandstart toward
the harbor."
To Play Game Sunday
Members of the training detachment
will play the town team for the see-
ond time Sunday afternoon at West
Park. This game will also be for
the benefit of the fund for the moth-

ers of Company E boys. The training
detachment team was defeated in the
first game last Sunday, but the sold-
jers have good reason to believe that
they will bring home the bacon this

University Will Ask Government to
Send Extra Motor Mechanics
Month Earlier
The 500 aditionaltmotor mechanics
'ncluded in the contract which it is
expected the government will sig
with the University the latter part
of this week or the first of next, will
come about Sept. 1, if the govern-,
ment agrees with the present wishes
of the University.The original tenta-
tive plan provided for the arrival
about Oct. 15.
It is expected that 100 of the signal
corps men will arrive about Sept. 1,
another 100 Oct. 1, and the last 100
Nov. 1, so that the full quota would
not be here until the latter date. The
schedule has been thus revised be-
cause it will fit in better with the
instruction resources of the Unive-
Must Wait For Officers
Nothing definite can be done until
the arrival of government officers, who
will go over the arrangements that
have been made for taking care of the
men. In case they are satisfactory the
contract will be signed, it is under-
The new Union building is now suf-
ficiently completed so that the mess-
ing of the men can be accomplished
there. The dining room has been es-
tablished in one of the rooms on the
second floor. Yesterday, members of
the training detachment were engag-
ed in carrying over and placing 96
benches which will be used to seat the
men. They were made in the car-
pentery shops by men training in this
branch of work.
New Equipment Purchased
New kitchen equipment costing $10,-
000 is being installed in the new Union
kitchen, and will be ready Aug. 15,
when the members of the next detach-
ment arrive. It consists of steamers,
ranges, dishwashing machines and the
like. There will be six of the latter,
costing $3,300, replacing the labor of
12 persons. A large boiler has also
been purchased to furnish steam for
the kitchen.
The board of directors of the Union
met yesterday at noon and discussed
the participation of the institution in
the project. It will be necessary to
figure very closely the expenses, as
the aggregate sum of money concern-
ed will run up into the thousands of
dollars, and a slight mistake would
mean that he Union would have a
considerable deficit to bear. It is the
intention to feed the men on as near-
ly a cost basis as is possible. Noth-
ing definite was done, but the Board
will meet again next Wednesday noon
to continue their work.
Clean Up Grounds
All the temporary bldings, piles
of materials, fences, and the like, ae
being cleared away from the grounds
surrounding the building. There will
be no attempt to grade it, however as
it would be impossible to keep it in
any kind of shape because of the
trampling by the men. This will have
to wait untilafter the war. A de-
tail of 10 men from the detachment
is assisting in getting the building
in shape by Aug. 15.
City Water Now Considered Safe
City water has been analyzed by Dr.

Frederick G. Novy of the bacteriology
department, and a favorable report is
expected today. The water is now
considered safe for drinking purposes
and the fountains in the University
buildings and on the campus will be
turned on today or tomorrow.
