Engineering college.,
Thomas, who is in France with the
16th regiment of engineers, describes
vivid experiences in his letter. "Nev-
er, never, will I forget the experience
of crossing the English channel. The
captain of our boat said he had been
on the sea for 40 years and that he
had .never before taken a boat across
in such a storm. Half the crew were
sick. Needless to say all the soldiers
were. You've heard of waves moun-
tain high; I saw them. And between
them were deep ravines. It remind-
ed me of looking down from a high
trestle into the valley below. And the
boat rocked so, fore and aft, that at
regular interveals the propeller was
out of water and the engine raced,
shaking the whole ship. The destroy-
er that was with us was a good sized
boat, yet she was almost lost to sight
at times and the water broke over her
bow in great clouds. To stand with-
out hanging on was imposible, for
the decks tipped first in one direc-
tion and then in another at a fearful
angle. Truly, it was a wild trip.
French Village Interesting.
"The regiment is billeted in a French
village. There are the old, old houses
of stone and stucco, with red tiled
roofs and rambling stone fences, over-
grown with moss, set on rough, wind-
ing, cobbled streets. The chief inter-
est that the place holds for me is its
age. I found a place marked 1774
when I first came here, but I have
since learned that it is relatively
"modern." There is one marked 1690
and nearby a little monument erected
in 1300-before Columbus discovered
America. On the hill is an old castle
with the date 1137 over the fireplaces
and on the high-vaulted ceiling. They
tell me, too, though J can scarcely be-
lieve it, that the little stone church,
which is still in use and from whose
tower the Angelus rings out over the
village and fields, was built in the 11th
Michigan Students Banquet.
"At the invitation of a crowd of
Michigan students in we of the
16th journeyed there and had a big
banquet. I'll leave it to you to imag-
ine the time that some 60 loyal Mich-
iganders had under these circum-
stances. We sang, punctuating the
songs now and then with a good old
"U. of M." or a rousing "locomotive"
and did a snake dance.
"We have, I am told, the finest
equipped Y. M. C. A. of any
regiment in the American sector
It is the most homelike, rest-
ful and inviting place I've yet struck
It's like dropping into Detroit again
And the meetings are a revelation te
me. If the Y. M. C. A. is doing as
much for the rest of the boys as it is
for us, and I am sure it is, in sp far
as its means permit, I would say give
anything to the Y. M. C. A. that yot
may have to give and that there it will
do the most good."

Editor, The Michigan Daily:
Whoever wills the END must will
the MEANS.,
This is the first maxim of-success.
We have taken up the gage of battle
thrown down by Germany. We coul
thrown down by Germany. We
could not do otherwise and look
shame. We could not do otherwise
the nations in the face without
inviting invasion of every right by any
international bully of the future. We
know the end we have willed. Vic-
tory over the Central Powers complete
enough and decisive enough to, re-
move for generations the threat of
a dominating military autocracy.
We have begun to will the MEANS.
We are setting aside millions of our
best men, and will set aside millions
more, for the task in hand. We are
building ships, warships, merchant
ships, air-ships; we are making war
materials, providing food and supplies
for our men in the field and for allies
on the fighting-line, who have been
fighting our battles, toiling and pinch-
ing, bleeding and suffering for our
safety, while we stood aloof and pros-
We have willed the means.
That is, we have made the plans.
We have set the ball rolling. But the;
huge labor is only begun. It must go
on. It must be pushed at top speed,;
to make up for previous dereliction of
duty. It must not be interrupted one
minute. This demands billions of;
money and credits.
We cannot sit back and say: Let
the soldiers win our victory, and let
the wealthy pay the cost. They could
do it well enough, perhaps, but that
is not the right way. It wouldn't be
good for YOU.
It must come from all of us ulti-
mately-in taxes and higher costs-the
normal way of distributing burdens.
This means sacrifice. Better make
it willingly now, than unwillingly lat-
er. Work longer hours for victory.
Cut out luxuries for victory. If you.
do not FEEL what you are doing, you
are not matching your comrade in camp
and on the firing-line. You are not
doing your full duty. You have not
shouldered your share of the extra
Swork entailed by war's destruction.
You have not, been called to give
your life for your country, but your
t talent and toil and saving-power are
drafted for victory. You can do no
less than devote them without reserve.
f Get a Libery bond. That is your
pledge to work more, spend less, learn
thrift, get the spirit of helpfulness,
and be an American.
The bond is a duty. Incidentally
also a gilt-edged investment.

Of course you ought to be able to
tell a second lieutenant from a major
or a captain from a brigadier-general,
but do you know how? It is easy to
distinguish them if one only knows the
sign of the shoulder.
To begin at the bottom, a second
lieutenant wears no emblem on his
.shoulder-strap. The first lieutenant
has this same strap adorned by one
bar, and a captain wears two. The
major has a gold leaf on his strap,
and a lieutenant-colonel, a silver leaf.
A colonel's shoulder strap is adorned
with an eagle, a brigadier-general's
with a single star, and a major-gener-
al's with two stars.
Now can you do it?
Originates New Way To Work Paper.
London, Oct. 23.-Tests recently un-
dertaken by the Imperial Institute
concerning the suitability of wattle-
bark for the manufacture of paper,
have been highly successful. A good
quality of brown paper has been made
from the bark discarded by tanners.
This papers bleaches readily to a'
cream tint and has been pronounced
suitable for newspaper purposes, and
with further treatment may make ser-
viceable writing paper. Several large
mills, it is announced, are not pro-
ceeding to confirm the experiments'
conducted by the Imperial Institute.

Paris, October 23.-Paris is out of
all danger of freezing this winter, ac-
cording to latest calculations. There
will be coal enough for all needs, even
supposing the season to be as rigorous
as last year. There is, in addition, a
considerable accumulation of fire-
wood, brought in during the summer
in anticipation of a coal shortage and
with a view to profit from the tempor-
ary crisis.
Coal importations were 400,000 tons
less in August than in the same month
last year, but the production of French
mines was 1,000,000 tons more than
in 1916, making a net gain of 600,000
tons in spite of submarine activity.
The imports in August were 1,680,000
tons and the local production, 2,666,000
French mines are now putting out
only about twenty per cent less coal
than before the war, notwithstanding
that a considerable part of the coal
field is occupied by the Germans.
M. Loucheur, the new Minister of
Armament, and formerly Under Secre-
tary for War Manufacturers, is cred-
ited with solving this problem.

fessors guilty of holding classes over-
