In pires Mrarines
Somewhere in France, May 27. -
Aunts, grandmothers, long forgotten
cousins, and even mothers-in-law
have attained a sudden popularity
among the wounded U. S. Marines
confined to the base hospitals here,
and together with them, letter writ-
ing has become the talk of the hour.
The reason is the kind-heartedness
of a French stenographer, a pretty
one at that, who has volunteered to
write letters home for the incapaci-
tated Marines here.
. The. pretty Parisienne makes daily
visits to the hospitals for dictation.
She has become fully as popular as a
letter from home, and under her in-
spiration the men have blossomed
forth as literary prodigies.

When a new four cylinder, Packard
automobile was introduced to the
community years ago, students of the
University and citizens of Ann Arbor
received the surprise of a life time.
The handsome machine was immed-
iately made into a taxi, and the proud
owner, George Craig, colored, who is
a Civil war veteran, had many envious
glances cast upon him from rival con-
President James Burrill Angell, de-
siring to award "George," as he after-
ward came to be known in University
circles, for his services around the
University, purchased the latest model
automobile and started him in the
taxicab business. This was about
Whenever a "swell" party was to be
given, a trip to be made to and from
the station, or couples to be taken to
the J-Hops, George was always on
hand. Things beagn to "break right,"

run more economically on short trips,
were gradually obtaining most of
George's business. Then, too, the de-
licate machinery, which is equipped
with a double set of starting appara-
tus, valve caps, and other necessary
adjuncts, started to fall apart. There
was no money in the treasury to make
the needed repairs, so George fastened
a safety pin here, or a piece of wire
there, and let it go at that. The
fenders, after witnessing several colli-
sions with ungainly telegraph poles,
became battered and bent.
Early last winter, George's family
decided that they had better eliminate
the regular Sunday automobile rides-
George never operated his bus line
on Sunday, for he considered it proper
to "keep Holy the Sabbath" by driving
his family around the city. The de-
cision made, George finally went to
work at the Hoover ball bearing
works. When the University issued a
call for a number of old automobiles,
George decided that it would be an
ideal bargain to give' his "beloved"
car to the first training detachment.
Yesterday morning, after the Univer-
sity agreed to pay George a certain'
specified sum for the Packard, the ma-
chine was driven to the "automobile
heaven" in the rear of the Engineer-

Five motors, of all makes, have been
sent by the government for the men.
Every motor is thoroughly inspected,
torn down, and re-assembled in order'
to give the men actual work in re-
pairing motors. When the men com-
plete the course they are expected to
fix any part of an engine that might
require attention with the aid of a
small kit of tools, or with whatever
equipment they might possess at
the time they are summoned to put the
machine in first class condition.
Nine of the 55 automobiles will be
given to Prof. Albert R. Bailey. They
will be used exclusively by the men

New Buildings Being Erected
Work on the new wooden buildings,
which are cantonment style, is pro-
gressing rapidly. One of the houses,
which will be the smaller of the
group, will be devoted entirely to the
study of chassis and chassis repairing.
This particular building, despite the.
fact that the plans were drawn by a
tniversity student, had to be partially
rebuilt by the training men, due to a
mistake discovered in the plans after
the construction had commenced.
The new buildings have a solid con-
crete foundation. The concrete is more
than a foot above the ground, and
about a foot in thickness. The con-
crete was poured several weeks ago,
and after it had settled firmly, the
progress of construction was rapid.
The men working on the buildings
were formerly employed on the new
extension of the Homoeopathic hos-
pital. They are in the carpentry squad,
and have shown a great deal of en-
thusiasm in "learning the new trade,"
for many of them never handled a
carpenter's tool before they enlisted
in the detachment.
AT THE MAJESTIC
At a recent supper at the Harvard
club, Theodore Roosevelt told the
gathering of New Yorkers that no
ambassador he could recall, except
Charles Francis Adams, who repre-
sented the United States in London
during the- Civil War, had occupied
so difficult a post as Mr. Gerard's at
Berlin. "That every American did
everything that a nation could possi-
bly do to keep out of the war with-
out dishonor is poignantly shown in
the big film production of Mr. Ger-
ard's book, 'My Four Years in Ger-
many,' said Col. Roosevelt. The pic-
ture goes back to the beginning' of the
war cloud in Germany and shows the
pitiless charity of incidents that forc-
ed America into battle. The film is
being shown at the Majestic again

BIG TEN MEET NEXT
ON TRACK PROGRAM
The Michigan track team started
on its last lap yesterday when it be-
gan preparationsr for the next big
'meet on the schedule, the Big Ten
meet on June 8.
Steve said yesterday that it was
very likely that a team would not be
taken to the Eastern inter-collegiates
next Saturday. The Athletic board
will probably vote not to send the
Maize and Blue squad to Philqdel-
phia, although the athletes have been
showing up well enough to make a
good showing in the eastern city.
In the contest with the Maroons
last Saturday, the Wolverines had
everything their own way, and at no
time was the result of the meet in
doubt after the first event of the day.
Coach Farrell said that his athletes
displayed the best form shown so far
Johnson, of course, did all that was
expected of him. He took first in
four events and was tied for first
honors in the high jump. The Michi-
gan star was not pushed very hard
in any of the other events which he
won. Messner came through with
the unexpected and defeated Chica-
go's bunch of good quarter milers.
Messner is improving with every
meet, and by the time the Conference
struggle rolls around, he should be
in condition to give the best 440 yard
dash men in the West a hard run for
