Board to Extend
Scope Of inlander
Future managing editors of the
Inlander will receive a yearly com-
pensation of $200, in accordance with
regulations made at a recent meeting
of the Board in Control of Student
It is the plan of the board to sub-
sidize the Inlander and make out of
it a literary magazine fully represen-
tative of the University of Michigan.
Of late, the Inlander has been read
and contributed to by only a small
number of students, and the policy to
be adopted next year aims to increase
the circulation and to augment the
number of contributors.
With a view towards increasing the
circulation, the board has banned lo-
cal advertising from the columns of
the Inlander.
The managing editor for next!
years' Inlander has not yet been
chosen, and students desiring this po-
sition should send in their applica-
tions on or before June 7 to Prof.
Fred N. Scott, chairman of the Board
in Control of. Student Publications.
Applicants should state their quali-
fications and experience.

The Union drive for $250,000 to
prepare the new Union building for,
war service ends tonight. One hun-
dred solicitors have been canvassing
every student for life membership
subscriptions, and it is reported that
the quota of $25,000 for the campus
will be oversubscribed before tonight.
Students have been showing great
interest in the plan of accepting iLb-
erty bonds as cash, and not only have
new memberships been taken out on
this plan, but students have made
their second and third payments, re-
ceiving cash for the balance. An ef-
fort will be made today to reach ev-
ery man on the campus who could
not be seen before, in order to make
the canvass complete.
University to Instruct Mechanics
The war department desires to
send a large number of soldiers to
the University for instruction in gas
engine operation and repairs, steam
engineering, electric work, sheet met-
al and foundry work, machine tool
operation, and general mechanics,
continuously during the period of the
war. The difficulty of such a propo-
sition has been the lack of sufficient
housing and messing space. For the
purpose of proper discipline and oth-
er reasons, the war department re-
quires that the men be housed prac-
tically under one roof, and unless
this can be done, the University may
be barred from further patriotic serv-
$20,000 Must Be laised
The new Union building contains
1,200,000 cubic feet of capacity and
120,00 square feet of floor, and is the
only possible space that can be se-
cured for these purposes. To enable

Second Day of Fete Surpasses Initial
Performance in Size of
Net Proceeds Total Slightly More
Than $1,000; Sum Not Up to
The second day of the Michigan
Union Byphalo Bull carnival even
surpassed the initial day in attend-
ance and the number of tickets taken
in at the various booths. More than
$600 was netted yesterday.,
Arrangements are now being made
to hold the carnival again Saturday
afternoon and evening. If the fac-
ulty committee will consent to the
plan, there is no doubt that the show
will be repeated. It has been a great
success, but the sum netted has not
come up to expectations. The funds
will be given to the Michigan bureau
of the American Universities Union in
Paris, and considerable money is
needed to keep the Paris Union run-
ning. It is essential that more mon-
ey be raised at the carnival. Slightly
more than $1,000 has been taken in
ince Still Popular
The dunce in Waterman gymna-
sium Last night was the main attrac-
tion and the big floor was crowded
most of the time. Ike Fischer's "jazz"
orchestra furnished the music. Many
attended the show for the dance
alone. Quite a few of these people
found themselves attracted to many
of the inviting booths that surround-
ed the big midway in Barbour gym-
nasium. If they failed to contribute
their share of the money needed, the
run 'em in police forced them to pur-
chase tickets at the bar of justice.
Fraternity Booths Rushed
Most of the fraternity booths were
rushed all day yesterday. Thursday's
patrons spread the news of the ex-
cellent side shows, and crowds of
their friends came to view the exhib-
its yesterday. Business was better at
all the booths than it was Thurs-
Delta Kappa Epsilon did not open
its Spirit of the Nile booth yesterday.
The only other booth not running was
that of Delta Chi, where a noted pro-
fessor was to enter the tiger's cage.
The ferocious feline escaped early
in the evening and caused considera-
ble commotion in the hall when its
keepers chased it all over the build-
ing. The tiger was finally recaptur-
ed, but when it was returned to its
cage it was found that the professor
had disappeared. The show was of
necessity called off. The professor
was quite successful in taming the
beast Thursday.-
Duck the Kaiserj
The duck the kaiser booth was one
of the most popular. It was run by
Trigon house instead of Delta Upsi-
lon, as announced yesterday. Many
people took pleasure in stopping the
advance of the Hun towards Paris.
The booths of chance were more
popular yesterday than previously.
They were crowded during the entire

day. It was noticed last night that
most of the frequenters of Theta Del-
ta Chi's shoot the chutes were girls.
The fair sex fairly swarmed around
the big slide. Alpha Delta Phi sold
as many orders of soft drinks as us-
Victrola Raffled
A large .Victrola was raffled late
last night. It has not been learned
who held the winning number. A big
box of cigarettes was also raffled. It
was won by coupon number 20. All
tickets for both were disposed .of in a
short time.
Many laughable happenings or'cur-.
red on the floor during the day. The
dancing "girls" from two of the
booths were the center of many
pranks. Many masculine patrons
failed to penetrate their disguises and
learn their identity.
If the carnival is to be reopened
tomorrow, announcement will be

Washington, May 30. - Railroad
employees were reminded by Director
General McAdoo that the employees
of the 11. S. in time of war in making
strikes wield a blow at their own gov-
ernment and the work of transporta-
tion officials to protect the hundred
thousands of American boys fighting
on battle fronts of Europe.
In a telegram to the heads of all
labor unions having shop men among
their number, Mr. M'Adoo gave notice
that the government cannot be co-
erced or intimidated, and called upon
railroad men to remain at their du-
ties and rely on him and the new
board of railroad wages and work-
ing conditions for just consideration
of their claims.
