for its salvation from the heel of
Prussian isii. It is not toro much to
ask that the thinking American public
give over some of this day to thank-
fulness that this nation entered the-
war in sufficient season to combat the
enemy with a powerful machine fight-
ing for the cause of right, as opposed
to that of might.
Memorial day 1918 will not witness
long casuality lists for American. A
year from now the occasion must be
tar different. Women in black will be
conspicuous. True friends will have
fallen in numbers upon the field of
honor. These things are bound to fol-
low the declaration of as tremendous a
fight as the preent one.
Today an ever-increasing force of
Americans is doing everything in its
power to make Lincoln's Gettysburg
words fact. Memorial day 1918 is
asking in no uncertain terms that Am-
erican and allied sympathizers resolve
"that these honored dead shall not
have died in vain."





Col. R. V. K. Applin, of the general
staff of the British army and head of
the British machine gun mission
to this country, who left Ann Arbor
yesterday morning after addressing
the cadets Monday afternoon, gives
the following as a parting message to
the students of Michigan and espec-
ially to those who intend to become
"America's problem at the present
time is to obtain officers for the new
army. It is not enough that these of-
ficers be well drilled; they must pos-
sess as well the special ciualifications
which will enable them to have infiu
ence and power over the men they are
to train and later command in bat-

Reports indicate that the crown

too near the fire.

Mr. Hughes gives every indication
of refusing to take flight over con-

'To date 800 soldiers from the state
have been discharged from- the army
because of symptoms of tuberculo-
sis," stated Dr. E. R. Van Der Slice,
medical field secretary of the Michi-
gan Anti-tuberculosis society recent-
ly. "We receive their names from
the surgeon-general's office through
the National Red Cross society and
try to get in touch with them."
Dr. Van Der Slice, in describing the
manner in which the association
helps them, said that they are first
advised to appear for examination
either in Ann Arbor or at one of the
various clinics held in several coun-
ties of the state. After their condi-
tion is ascertained they are advis-
ed to go to work and keep in touch
with a physician ,to rest and be con-
stantly under a doctor's care, or are
sent to a sanatorium depending up-
on the extent to which the disease is
"Fortunately physicians all over
state who are especially interested in
tuberculosis and diseases of the lungs
have volunteered to help in the work
of examining these men," said Dr.
Van Der Slice. "As yet the work is
just getting under way," he contin-
ued. "We have examined about 10
per cent of them and have sent a few
to sanatoriums."
"In connection with the home serv-
ice division of the Red Cross we ex-
pect to do a great service to these
boys and save many lives during the
year," Dr. Van Der Slice concluded.y

Train for New Life
"The universities of America are the
natural place to look for these men.
Unfortunately, however, the quiet at-
mosphere of university life and the
peaceful outlook on life of the aver-
age student isthe exac antithesis of
the training necessary for war,. and
the first sacrifice that the student is
called upon to make as he "lays down
the pen for the sword," is to throw,
away all his preconceived ideas, both
here and in the future arid to train
himself for a new life of duty and sac-
rifice for America.
"The first and greatest qualification
is efficiency and thoroughness in ev-
erything that he does. He must in-
deed put. off the old man of civilian
habits and put on the new man of
alertness, smartness, and soldierly
bearing. No detail of dress, deport-
ment, or carriage"rmust be too small
for his attention. He must strive in
all these things to look the part he
is to play, remembering that he is the
living representative of America and
all that America stands for.
Must Demand Loyalty
"The second point is loyalty. Na-
turally he will be loyal to his country,
flag and university, but a great deal
more is required of the perfect sold-
ier. He must give devoted and un-
swering loyalty from the President
down to the lowest officer under whom
he is serving, and must exact the same
from everyone in his command. Only
thus can we obtain perfect co-opera-
tion, not only between units, but
throughout the whole nation, and it is
only by perfect co-operation and abso-
lute efficiency and perfection in the
smallest details that we can hope to
beat our perfectly organized enemy.
The soldier that can spring to atten-
tion and salute perfectly on all oc-
casions is certain to be smart and effi-
cient in his more important duties.
Learn to "Click"
"Drill is the mechanism of the bat-
tlefield, where the failure to do the
right thing at the right instant may
mean defeat. All drill is useless
which does not insist on perfection in
the smallest detail. Every moment of
out of step is a moment lost in the
winning of the war. The soldier who
learns to perform every movement
with a "click" is the one who will be
a fraction of a second quicker than
the enemy when he meets him with
the bayonet, and he will thank his
country for the training it has given
him as he tugs the bayonet from the
enemy in his first fight."

The decision of the athletic board
not to send the track team or any
iudividuals to the Eastern intercolleg-
iates at Philadelphia this week will be
taken with deep regret by the campus.
It seems a cruel fate that this year of
all years when the track team would
have had an excellent chance to win
the meet and the national collegiate
championship that the trip cannot be
taken. Lack of finances is the reason.
The decision of the board brings the
war closer home to us than many oth-
er things combined could do. Mr.
Bartelme, speaking for the board, said
that whether the student body wished
to send the team by popular subscrip-
tion or not the idea could not be fav-
ored. The board is right, and making
the most of the situation. The reason
given for not sanctioning the aid of
the campus is that in view of the war
and the heavy finances being borne by
Michigan for Michigan men in the ser-
vice it would be wrong for the stu-
dent body to take it upon itself to send
the team. Bluntly, the - board feels
that if it cannot send the team that
should end the matter. It does.
Memorial day this year should be
the occasion of much more serious
thought than this day of years past.
An army of more than 2,000,000 men is
to be honored. To these and those
who are daily joining themselves with
them the civilized world is looking

"Advertising As a Field for Women,"
was discussed by Miss Hazel Whitaker
of the J. L. Hudson company of De-
troit, yesterday afternoon in Newber-
ry hall.
"There is no further doubt as to
the fitness of women for the profess-
ion," Miss Whitaker said in part.
"Practically all advertising managers
admit that it takes the feminine hand
to put the human touch into an ad-
vertisement, and it is this human ele-
ment that is becoming the real basis
of success in today's work."
In regard to preparation for the
profession, Miss Whitaker stated that
a college education is almost indis-
pensable. As supplements, she em-
phasized various branches of teaching,
and particularly newspaper experi-
Miss Whitaker illustrated her lec-
ture with numerous advertisements
selected by her as typical of different
purposes and industries.
A list of references suggested for
prospective beginners in the advertis-
ing field will be placed on the bulletin
board in Barbour gymnasium

Tea-drinking seems to have orig-
inated in China, acording to an ar-
ticle in Science by Dr. R. A. Gortner
of the University of Minnesota. In
this article Dr. Gortner mentions a
book entitled "Farmers of Forty Cen-
turies," by Professor King, which.
states that tea was first used as a
sanitary measure, the Chinese findng
that boiling the water would save
them from typhoid and that they aft-
erwards added tea leaves to make it
more palatable.
Professor Gortner believes this to
be false reasoning, however, since the
Chinese of centuries ago knew noth-
ing of micro-organisms and the role
they play in disease. He believes that
they first found tea a pleasing bev-
erage to drink and those families who
indulged in its use to any very great
extent were not visited by typhoid
and cholera and other diseases aris-
ing from polution as frequently as the
non-tea-drinking families were. The
Chinese people, he believes, observed
this and therefore spread the custom
of tea drinking throughout the land.
