jiemorial Day Proclamation

BY THE GOVERNOR

INDENSCIIm"T [APPEL&,COSj

The observance of Memorial day, a
day dear to the heart of the patriot,
the day of all days which most
abounds in hallowed memories and as-
sociations, is distinctively an American
custom, and one that beautifully reflects
the spirit of democracy, It is a day
which brings to the surface the kindli-
er, nobler impulses of the human heart'
and bids us pause, even in time of war,
to honor the memory of those who of-,
fered up their lives on freedom's altar.+
It is the day that commemorates the
great deeds and heroic sacrifices of;
the brave men who, more than half a
a century ago, sustained the cause of
the Union. These men deserve well
of ourselves and all future generations
of Americans. They saved the nation
from disruption. They redeemed labor
from slavery. They converted into a
concrete, living fact what before had
been held as an' abstract principle,+
namely, that all men are created free
tnd equal, not equal in power and en-'
dowment, but equal in their right to
life, liberty and the pursuit of happi-
ness. The men who accomnlishied
these stupendous labors were true
patriots; and it is ours to honor the
memory of the departed and pay hom-
age to those who still live.
Again, today, the life of the Republic
is threatened, this time from without.
We have been forced into war. We
face the peril which menaces all the
free nations of the earth, and we have
made common cause with them. To-
gether we are fighting to keep the
world from being throttled by a ruth-
less autocratic power. The fate of
democracy hangs in the balance. The
freedom of the world is at stake; and,
as our fathers went out in sixty-one to
do battle for a righteous cause, so our
sons are going out today to do bat-
tle for a cause that is no whit less
righteous. They are fighting to uphold
the rights of humanity. They are fight-
ing to save civilization from destruc-
tion. Their valor and their patriotism f

need no eulogy. They are worthy sons
of worthy sires.
One young soldier writes to his
mother, "I am going to fight this war
as a man, and I'l1 never come back
with a stain on the name I love If
I am called upon to make the supreme
sanriflce, I'm going with my boots on
and. a smile zn my lips. When I am
across, don't worry, little mother, be-
cause I want you to be proud to call
me 'My son'." That spirit will win. It
cannot fail to win, although the hour
of victory may be delayed by the mag-
nitude of the taskwhich confronts our
gallant soldier and sailor lads. God
bless them, and keep them true and
steadfast! God help us at home to
realize our responsibility, and, with
wholehearted devotion, to do our part.
Therefore, that we may pay a tri-
bute of affection and esteem to the
surviving veterans of the Civil war
and of the Spanish-American war, and
do honor to the memory not only of the
men who gave up their lives in these
wars of the past, but of the brave boys
also who have fallen in the present
conflict, I, Albert E. Sleeper, govern-
or of the state of Michigan, do hereby
issue this, niy Proclamation, and sin-
cerely urge the observance of Thurs-
day, May 30, 1918, as Memorial day.
. I venture to express the hope that
the day will be kept -in a manner con-
sistent with the spirit of the occasion.
It should be a day for the re-dedication
of our strength and service, the renew-
ed consecration of our ev'ery effort
and resource, to the support of our
fighting forces.
And, pursuant to President Wilson's
proclamation, I earnestly request the
people of Michigan to observe this day
as a solemn festival, and to gather
in their accustomed places of wor-
ship and there to offer prayers for the
victory of the American armies, that
a just and lasting peace maybe es-
tablished throughout the world.
On that day flags should be displayed
at half-staff until noon, and then hoist-
ed to the top of the staff.

AILROADS NEED
MEN FOR SUMMER{
"It is important that we have good
ansportation facilities during the
r," Prof. L. M. Gram of the engi-
ering college stated yesterday, "in
dler to transport men and equip-
ent from the production points to
e sea ports. The government has
ken over the railroads and is urg-
g them to increase their efficiency;
t they are hard pressed for men."
The Pennsylvania lines have writ-
n Professor Gram that they need
en on divisions in Ohio, Pennsyl-
nia, and Indiana. The Duluth, South
ore, and Atlantic railway can use
me men, this summer at Duluth.
ie Big Four at Cincinnati, Ohio,
ites that they need men for the
immer. The "Soo" line at Minne-
olfs will be able to use two or

three men for the summer; and the
New York lines at Taledo can also
use two or three.
Professor Gram states that these
positions require little or no techni-
cal training, so students need not
hesitate to make application for the
positions because they are not very
far advanced.
PRINCETON STUDENTS TO. BE
ENROLLED IN U. S. ARMY
Princeton, N. J., May 29. - Prince-
ton will be turned into a military
college next year, according to plans
which have been worked out in con-
junction with the army and navy de-
partments.
Beginning with the next school
year, and continuing for the duration
of the war, all students 18 years or
over must be enlisted in the service
of the United States.-They will be
in uniform, under military discipline,
and "detailed, inactive, for study and
instruction."
Students will be subject 'to call for
active service before they reach the
age of 21, "but only in the case of
great need. After their first year,
they will be allowed to go on with
their academic subjects, or may take
up courses similar to those at West
Point or Annapolis.

Gothamite Smoker
To Wie Speechless
A "Speechless Smoker" is the meth,-
od by which the University of Muichi-;
gan club of New York, composed of
alumni of the University living in
Gothain, is going to celebrate next
Monday, June 3.
The reason why the smoker is to
be "speechless" is, says an advertise-
ment of the affair, due to the board of
governor,- of the club declaring June
3 "speechless" Monday. The advertise-,
ment also admonishes prospeftive cus-
tomers to buy their own smokes, as
they will not be furnished them at the
smoker.
The entertainment is to be held at
Delmonico's roof garden, corner Fifth
avenue and 44th street. Admission is
50 cents for club members and their
guests, but no charge is to be made
for University of Michigan men in un-
iform.
In commenting on the "speechless"
nature of the smoker, the advertise-
ment says: "No long speeches to list-
en to. Short stunts by our own peo-
ple, table at which to sit and quaff, a
roof over you, open air all around the
sides, beautiful decorations, good fel-
lowship."
All replies to invitations should be
addressed to Thurman W. Stoner,
secretary of the club, at 115 Broad-
way. -

STUDENTS MAY AID
IN WAR FARM WORK
There is a great demand for stu-
dents to work on Michigan farms this
summer and all those who wish to
work on farms may apply at the
Washtenaw County farm bureau. The
demand for students is much great-
er now than ever before because of
the fact that many of the young farm-
ers are being drafted. These men
have been, for the most part, hired
help and, therefore, could not be ex-
empted from the draft.
At the present time high school
boys are about the only help obtain-
able by farmers. Detroit Central high
school has now about 30 members of
the boys' working reserve in this
county, and intends to have a good
many more here within eshort time.
The college student makes a much
better farmer than the high school
student because he has been trained
to apply himself more, and is, gen-
erally, better developed for this kind
of labor. Students will receive good
pay, ranging around $50 or $60 per
month.
Most of the help will be needed
durin the harvest season and per-
sons who can register on the farm-
er's emergency list should do so at
once. These volunteers will probably
be given work for a week or so 4t a
time during the harvest season. This
would be most suitable for students
remaining in Ann Arbor or for those
who are attending summer school.
They may thus earn money and aid
the country.
Architectural Society Initiates Four
Tau Sigma Delta, national honor-
ary fraternity of architecture and al-
lied arts, held its annual spring ini-
tiation last night at the home of Prof.
Emil Lorch, of the architectural
school. The usual formal initiation
banquet was done away with this
year and a simple informal initiation
held owing to war economy and the
fact that most of the men are in war
service. Four new members were in-
itiated. The initiates were chosen on-
the combined basis of schoolastic
standings, based primarily on arch-
