ety there over the advance the en-
emy has been able to make. It is true
that the Germans are again suffering
enormous losses in men and morale,
and that they are becoming desper-
ate. Nevertheless the wings of the Al-
lies have not held as they should. The
fall of Soissons gives to the enemy an
important strategical point.
In some places the enemy advance
has gone forward at an exceedingly
fast pace. Part of the old Marne bat-
tle ground is now being fought over.
The Germans are nearer to both Paris
and Calais than they have been since
Joffre swung the tide toward human.-
ity in September, 1914. Discounting
the fact that the Hun movement may
be suicidal, there is also the other side
that the advance may be of such mo-
mentum and force that it may be more
successful than the Allies would seem
There is every evidence that General
Foch continues to play i owaiting
game,, to make every move of the Al-
lies count to the utmost, to sacrifice
only when sacrifice is alsolutely nec-
essary. Ground is being given up to
the enemy only at the heaviest cost
to him, and with the lightest possible
cost to the Allied forces.Counter at-
tacks are being made only to keep
back the invaders until- valuable.

The waiting game means that homes
and valuable territory for food and
industry are being taken by the en-
emy. But his is only a temporary
gain, and costs him the price he willj
continue to find necessary to pay.
Since the first spring advance of thef
Germans, some of the territory cap-
tured has Been retaken by the Allies
at exceedingly small cost. The pre-

Paris, May 30. -- The entire medi-

in France has been mobilized to meet
any emergency that may arise in the
problem of handling medical service
for 'refugees and others. Hitherto
doctors had volunteered fordsuch
work. They have now been divided
into three classes: those whose work
is of such a character that they can
be considered immediately available;
those working' in Paris at such im-

Ample full-time nursing service at

ization of nurses and nurses' aids.
Four units of one doctor and two
nurses each provided with full equip-

ready for immediate service when
other units are called out.

FRIDAY, MAY 31, 1918.
Niglt Editor-William W. Fox
If the cap nights of other years
have been impressive ceremonies in
the minds of the classes, what of the
evenmt of tonight? The battle lines even
now swinging backward and forward on
the western front tell of Michigan men
"safe now in the wide, wide world,"'
ighting the frensied Hun. Some of
these men when they left were fresh-
wmen, others would have been sopho-
mores, more would now be juniors,
and a still larger number seniors, liv-
ing to the full the few happy under-
graduate days left before them.
Cap night has long been among the
great st of the All-University func-
tions. Yet from tonight's marching
and singing classes perhaps two-fifths
of those missing will be numbered
among Michigan's offering to the ser-
vioe since the start of the Unversityr
The greater silence which will dis-
tinguish tonight's function from those
of previous years will be that of un-
derstanding by oven those who are
witnessing their first cap night-the
claps to which the tradition is dedicat-
THE OPPORTUNITY IS A GREAT
Count the man as extremely fortun-
ate who has been chosen by Lieuten-
ant Mullen to go to Fort Sheridan.
Count Michigan as extremely fortunate
in being offered the opportunity to
send as large a number of her student
cadets to the camp. It is a recognition
of the army officers' ability to organize
and train a great body of men with
nothing but the rawest material upon
which to start. With a militry course
upon the campus of less than one
year's duration, the University is send-
ing a splendid representation of men
to the camp.
With these men chosen rests a big
obligation. It means tha't they are in
a sense picked men, students of the
R. O. T. C. who have acquired the dis-
tinction of grasping military duties
quicker than some of their fellows.
They are expected to assume import-
ant and vital positions in the R. 0. T.
C. organization next year, The month's
training they will receive from army
officers will be as intensive as several'
times that amount would be here. The
military discipline under which they
will be means a great improvement in
the R. O. T. C. from the start of the
1918-19 year, and will bolster up the
weakest link In this year's organ-
The 221 men who are to go will be
on their metal. They are to represent
their University at this camp. With
them will be men from other middle-
western institutions, many of them
from military organizations much
older than their own. For that reas-
on it is perhaps unfair to expect that
the University's representation will
make as high a record as the students
from some of the other schools.'

COST OF PUBLISING 'OR(IES
SUSPEN SION 01F "EVERY WEE "
New York, May 30.-An example of
the heavy hand of war laid upon pub-
lishers is seen in the decision of the
publication "Every Week," to suspend
after its issue of June 22.
Although enjoying its greatest per-
iod of prosperity and having more than
500,000 readers, this publication will
pass' out of existence because of the
uncertainties of war, steady increase.
in the shortage of skilled labor re-
quired, scarcity and increasing cost of
raw materials and inability of the pub-
lishers to get new and better mechan-
ical equipment. Because of the fut-
ure, as far as the war is concerned,
holding no promise of a change, the
situation, this magazine announces, is
one whoch makes publication financi-
ally and mechanically prohibitive.

ahead of iJs in the war, have had to
