effective help to Russia would be

But it was thought more likely that
what the Premier had in mind was
the establishment of credit here to be'
expended in the purchase of supplies
to be shipped to Russia.
"Have her send boots," the Premier
was quoted as saying in response to
a question as to how America could
help best, "leather, iron, and" with
Tee sending of actual money out ofl
the country to any of the allies would
establish a precedent here and would
be diametrically opposite to the Amer-

day, can do Russia more good if it re-

Reports on the "Grow something to
help the United States win the war"
campaign inaugurated by the Ann Ar-
bor civic association during the past
summer are now coming in to the
secretary of the association. Owners
of war gardens write of raising a
great amount of garden produce at a
nominal cost. The civic association
loaned land throughout the city to
people who farmed their produce on it
without paying for its use. These war
farmers have expressed themselves as
highly pleased with the results ob-
tained, and have asked that the same
system be employed next summer.
Some of the reports are interesting
in the extreme. Six members of the
Ann Arbor police force who worked
Ismall pieces of land in West Park.,
raised 210 bushels of potatoes, 150
heads of cabbage, 10 bushels of toma-
toes, and 10 bushels of white turnips.
Four postmen produced 17 bushels of
potatoes, 200 cucumbers, 30 dozen
ears of corn, 4 dozen cabbages, 2 bush-
els of string beans, 1 bushel each of
peas and tomatoes, a tub of celery,
and a large crop of radishes.
A spirited letter was received from
a Civil war veteran who wrote that
although he was old and feeble, he
was glad of this chance to help his
country and "do his bit" by growing
about 14 bushels of potatoes.

Certificate Plan Under Govermiment
Supervision Will Take Place
Of Old Discharge-book
Chicago, Nov. 3.-Seamen on the
great lakes will rejoice to learn that
by agreement the so-called discharge
book, which they allege was used as
a system forblacklisting, is to be
abolished. In its place will spring up
a discharge certificate system, oper-
ated under government supervision,
which will guard against incompeten-
The announcement comes tt the
close of an investigation started early
in the fall when a far reaching strike
on the great lakes was iminent. Vic-
tor A. Olander, secretary of the Lake
Seamen's union, received a telegram
yesterday from R. B. Stevens, vice
chairman of the committee, dated from
Washington, which said:
"The shipping board has received
the report of the investigation- into
the welfare plan and discharge book of
the Lake Carriers' association in oper-
ation on the great lakes and the matter
of overtime work and pay. Upon all
the evidence received this board has
decided that the discharge book is un-
desirable and should be abolished.
"The matter of overtime work and
pay is under further consideration.
The board desires if possible to work
out and put into effect a plan for tak-
ing up and promptly adjusting any
grievances as they may arise. The
board believes that the Lake Carriers'
association, the shipping companies
who are members of the association,
and the men who are employed on both
classes of boats have an interest in
the decision of all the above mentioned
GIRLS TO SUPPLANT MEN
AS RAILROAD EMPLOYES
San Francisco, Nov. 2.- Girls are
gaining on men at the school of rail-
roading maintained by the Southern
Pacific at its Third and Townsend sta-
tion. Four months ago one girl and
forty men were learning to be station
agents there. Now there is a class of
eighty, and sixty are girls.
Miss Maude L. Ferguson, the one
girl of the first group, is now station
agent at Acampo, where she is hie-
graph operator, checks baggage, sells
tickets, and flags trains.
The girls are given training for posi-
tions as clerks, telegraph operators,
and station agents. They work half
the day and study the other half, and
are paid $30 while they are attending
the school. Miss Ferguson started
work at a salary of $90, but the aver-
age for beginners will be $75
ITALIANS RUSH TO COLORS
IN REBIRTH OF PATRIOTISM
Rome, Nov. 1.-Italy is undergoing
a rebirth of patriotism. Everywhere
men are clammering to go to the front.
Even the Garibaldi veterans have
marched in a body to offer their lives
on the country's altar. Thousands of
younger veterans of the present war
interned in hospitals, or invalided
home, are insisting upon returning to
their commands. The troublemakers
,who two weeks ago said they were
tired of the war and who were willing
to listen to German agents, now either
are in hiding or are hastening to ad-
mit that they were mislead.
