UNION MEETING SUNDY
Starting with the first of October,
the Michigan state food administration
requested the pepole of the state to
observe Tuesday as a "meatless" and
Wednesday as "wheatless" days.
These days were het aside in accord-
ance with the national food conser-
Since this request was made, I'
have endeavored to find out to what
extent the boarding houses and frat-
ernities have been co-operating. From
inquiries and personal obseveration I
have found that at least eight of the
larger boarding houses are not ob-
serving this request. On the other
hand, the majority. of the fraternity
houses seem to be carrying out the
Many students wish to observe these
days, but are unable to do so. While
many boarding houses serve rye br 'ad
regularly, the quantity is usually in-
sufficient. As a specific example, last
Wednesday the writer attempted to
obtain rye bread in place of wheat
bread in one of the boarding houses,
but was informed that the supply had
been exhausted. In another boarding
house the "wheatless" day was inaug-
urated by serving "Cream of Wheat"
and toast for' breakfast.
While it undoubtedly is a problem
to arrange attractive dishes without
these staples the newspapers and
magazines are publishing many sug-
gestions for preparing meals without
Possibly the boarding house keepers
are holding back because they are not
sure of student sentiment in this re-
gard and would gladly co-operate if
they were sure that their boarder
would stand behind them in this mat-
ter. In any case, students who are
anxious to serve the national cause
should assure their boarding house
keepers of their support.
A SENIOR ENGINEER.
The Association of Collegiate
Alumnae will devote all its time and
energy to war work during the en-
.suing club year.
This decision was made at the first
meeting of the year, held last Satur-
day. It was deemed advisable by the
many attending members, to drop, for
the present, the question of establish-
ing an infirmary for University girls,
on account of the urgent necessity for
war relief work at this time.
The association plans to direct its
efforts in particular to the University
union of Europe, an organization
which seeks to provide home-like sur-
roundings for soldiers off duty from
American universities and colleges.
To this end, the association wishes
to raise a considerable amount of
money, to be turned over to President
Hutchins for disposal. Mr. Vibbert is
the University representative in Eu-
rope for this work at the present
As a means of raising at least a
part of this sum, the alumnae women
are considering serving lunch after
the Union dances. There is also some
talk of taking over the men's ban-
quet, which will be substituted this
year in place of the annual smoker.
Both of these plans are tentative, how-
ever, and will require further consid-
eration before definite action -is taken.

WOMEN AND THE SECOND LOAN
,All over Agerica today women a 'e
rising to the occasion of the times
remarkably well.- - In business, in the
professions, American women are
proving themselves more competent to
step into important positions than the
most optimistic had dared hope.
In the little niche of this nation's
broad land occupied by the University
of Michigan, the women are coming
forward nobly in their efforts to help
lift the quota for the second Liberty
The results to .date have been ,un-
satisfactory to those in charge, and
we believe, to the campus. But the
women of the University are doing
their share, and give promise of 9-t
tinuing even better as they familiar-
ize themselves omre and more . k
the work. Their efforts are worthy
of the highest commendation.
This is an age of speculation. The
man of many trades is out of date. In
the business world it is the man who
can do one thing well who can demand
the highest price and get the biggest
.'The same rule is applicable to '-e
college student. The freshman should
choose the field of activity to which he
is best suited, and stick to it, not to
the exclusion of all other activities,
but to the subordination of all others.
He wil find that if he tries to dabble
in every phase of college life his en-
ergies will have been dissipated with
nothing but a transient popularity
A student need not be on every corr-
mittee and a member of a dozen clu s
in order to be an all-round person.
The man who has a thorough knowl-
edge of his'college and who bends his
efforts toward achieving a few ends
leaves a deeper footprint than the one
who hasn't quite enough time to do
any one thing well.
If he starts taking up various lines
of endeavor before he has outlined any
definite plan for his university career
the student is apt to find himself in
activities "up to his neck."
If, on the other hand, he can name
a fsw worthy achievements at the end
of his four years in college, ? e will
find that he knows how to conce"" "
in the business world. It is the man
with his eyes on a goal who is chose
to carry the message to Garcia.--

Sammies at Custer Learn to Bayonet
Battle Creek, Mich., Oct. 18.-Trench
warfare is being brought home to
Sammies at Camp Custer. Parrying
.and thrusting at imaginary Boches
with fixed bayonets, the soldiers are
becoming acquainted with war as it
is and camp life as it ain't.
Handling of a bayonet will soon be
done as easily and as quickCly as the
resp nse to mess call is executed. The
new course of training is not tem-
porary. It will be regular until the
men don the steel helmets. and enter
Stabbing' the dummies will be
started soon as possible. Officers are
awaiting only the preparation of these
dummies. They are being taught to
step quickly and retrieve-and not to
lunge. It is explained in detail that
each man must work quickly and
cooly without throwing himself for-
ward bodily. They are being in -ict-
ed that in the fight which itet life
or death to them, a lunge brings a
fatality, which goes on the American
Blank bombs are being hurled by
the men. This is instructive work in
order to avoid accidents when the
loaded bombs are put into use.
Artillery and machine gun com-
paries are also stepping into action,
coincident with other preparations for
intensive warfare. The guns are ex-
pected at the camp within a few days.

Batavia, Netherlands East Indies,
Oct. 1S--An outstanding feature of
the rapidly expanding commercial in-
tercourse bet ween the United States
and the Netherlands East Indies is the
soaring rubber export to America
and, on the other hand, the growing
use of the American automobile in the
colony. Despite the shortage of
cargo space, East Indies' shipments of
rubber to the United States have risen
from 3,000 tons in the first half of
1916 to 9,700 in the corresponding
period of the current year. Eight hun-
dred and fifty ; automobiles were im-
ported in the.first quarter of 1917,
nearly all from America; while 2,400
arrived in 1946.
The serious ,conditions arising out
of the lack of cargo space threaten the
country with an economic disaster,
and urgent representations are being
made to the colonial and home gov-
ernments on the subject. Of the 1916-
1917 sugar crop, 2,500,000 tons last
month awaited shipment, together
with 1,500,000 piculs of the coffee crop,
88,000,000 pounds of tea, 900,000 bales
of tobacco and 2,000,000 tons of rub-
ler, copra aid oil.
