TEUTONS FEARING CONFISCATION
REMOVE MONEY FROM
Washington, Nov. 14.-A. Mitchell
Palmer, alien property custodian, is-
sued a formal statement today, assur-
ing Germans living in this country and
doing lawful business here, that the
government has no intention of inter-
fering with them.
The statement resulted from the
fact that many Germans are with-
drawing their bank deposits because
they fear confiscation. Whether
withdrawals have been made because
of the fear of confiscation, or whether
it is hoped to injure American busin-
ess interests is not known, but the
government statement is intended to
try to stop the runs on banks.
War Camp Nekvs1
Editor, The Michigan Daily:
As a voice crying in the wilderness
comes this message of welcome and as-
surance from Section 91 of the United
States army ambulance service to
their friends at Michigan, the parent
of this organization. Though four
months have intervened since we bade
the University farewell, and despite
the fact that army life and its peculiar
requirements culminating in our pres-
ent service at the front has introduc-
ed many interests foreign to and apart
from college life, we are Michigan men
still. Therefore, we are moved to send
back a word of friendship to those at
our home.in Ann Arbor.
The section has experienced a con-
tinuous round of travel and change
since its departure from Allentown in
August. The trip across the ocean was
followed by a short stay at a French
camp, and then came a journey across
France in ambulances. Actual service
at the front, the certain aim of all that
had gone before, was next and last in
the order of succession, and it is with
pride that I write that Michigan men
have served faithfully and well in dif-
ficult and dangerous work.
But all is not labor and toil. In
true American fashion the men have
furnished a corner of the barn that
aswers as ourhheadquarters 'and,
gathered about the fire in this den,
they enjoy such leisure moments as
they have. Here are forgotten the
cold, dark trips with loaded ambul-
ances along roads torn and broken by
shells. No more do we think of the
discomforts caused by hard beds,
the absence of toilet articles, rain,
mud, or casual opportunities for sleep-
ing and eating. Instead we read an-
cient American papers and magazines,
write, talk, sing anything to drive dull
Last night we gathered in force and
entertained a few French officers by
all the Michigan songs we could call
to mind. Someone then volunteered
the information that it was just about
time for a football game to open in
Ann Arbor. And with all the vigor of
old we sang the "Victors," followed
the kick-off with the "siren" and then
cheered on the team by the "locomo-
tive," "Ypsi," and all the rest. I know
you must have won that game. We
concluded the evening with toasts to
Michigan, with champagne.
We are not allowed to disclose our
where abouts and must with-hold all
other information of a military nature.
Hence, a large number of interesting
events and episodes must remain un-
This is a united expression of the in-
terest this section holds for the Uni-
versity of Michigan and a handshake
across the sea to their friends.

Inventions Submitted To Naval Board
Give Aid To Varied Branches
Of War Service
Washington, D. C., Nov. 14.-Forty'
thousand plans, suggestions, and mod-'
els for devices to punish the subma-'
rines, have been submitted to the Na-
van consulting board since the United
States entered the war against Ger-
many. All of the inventions have re-
ceived careful consideration, and
much valuable aid has been given'
many branches of the war service.
Secretary Daniels in a statement
discussing these suggestions,, said to-
"The idea that the submarine will
be overcome by a miraculous inven-
tion is not now seriosly considered.
"In regard to the protection of ships
against torpedo attacks, the undenia-
ble evidence of recent months of sub-
marine activity has demonstrated that
the immunity of a vessel depends
largely on its speed and maneuvering
ability. There is a possibility that
some artificial means of protecting
cargo may be found practicable.. In
no other field have so many sugges-
tions been presented to the board."

Along with the declarations of a
number of students that they will
walk rather than pay exorbitant prices
to the taxi companies, comes a report
from the health service that the value
of walking is now being emphasized
by many prominent physicians all ov-

been formed in many localities in an
effort to stimulate a national interest
"The slow, haphazard, often slouchy
gait of the ordinary citizen is not
