Paris, Nov. 15.-Former Premier
Clemenceau has agreed to form a new
cabinet.
It was Clemenceau, for many years
one of the most forceful figures in
French public life, who instituted the
campaign against German propaganda
in France and it was largely on that
issue, that the Painleve cabinet failed.
Clemenceau is 76 years old. He
sometimes is referred to as more of
a destructive than . a constructive
statesman and is reputed to have up-
set nearly a score of cabinets.

RAILROADS WILL BE UNABLE
TO MEET WINTER'S DEMANDS
Public Can Dispense with Many -of
Listed Goods and Feel no
Inconvenience
Washington, Nov. 15. - Denial of
railroad transportation to more than
500 commodities classed as non-es-
sential was recommended to the gov-
ernment today by the railroad war
board. The commodities included in
the recommendations were not made
public.
At the same time the board gave out
a statement declaring the country's
railroads at the present rate of in-
crease in traffic will be unable to
meet demands that will be made on
Ihem this winter.
Railroad Traffic Officers Make List
The list of commodities classed as
non-essential was made up by a com-
mittee of railroad traffic officers at the
request of Robert S. Lovett, the gov-
ernment director of priority of trans-
portation. A copy was turned over to
Fuel Administrator Garfield who is
contemplating the curtailment of coal
supplies to industries not necessary
to the public welfare.
Little Inconvenience Involved
The list contains 450 commodities
whose transportation it is declared
can be dispensed with without any
great inconvenience to the public, and
75 which it is held the public could
dispense with, but not without in-
convenience.
Inability of the railroads to move
what will be offered them is due, the
statement points out, entirely to a
tremendous increase in the volume of
freight and passenger traffic.
UNIVERSITY MEN AT
HOME "OVER THERE",
Prof. Charles B. Vibbet Represents
Michigan on Executive Com-
mittee
University men in France now have
as their headquarters the College Un-
ion clubhouse recently opened by the
American University Union in Paris.
The quarters are located at the Royal
Palace hotel, number 8 Rue de Riche-
lieu.
Club Resembles American One
The clubhouse is similar in con-
struction to the average American un-
iversity club. It contains a number
of sleeping rooms and baths, a restau-
rant, lounging and reading rooms. The
executive committee of the American
University Union has as its members
men from several universities in this
country. They are: Prof. Charles B.
Vibbert, of Michigan; Prof. George H.
Nettleton, of Yale; Van Renssalaer
Lansiugh, of the Massachusetts In-
stitute of Technology; Prof. Paul Van
Dyke, of Harvard.
Special Bureaus To Handle Students
Special bureaus to take care of the
students of particular universitie
have been organized by Michigan,
Harvard, Massachusetts Institute ofj
Technology, Princeton, and Yale.1
About 30 different colleges and univer-
sities have joined the Union. Mem-1
bership by a university entitles theiri
students to enjoy the privileges of the
college union without any charge. Oth--
eirwise university students have to
pay a nominal fee for services.
Former Chemistry Professor Called
Dean M. E. Cooley has received a
communication from Capt. A. H. White
of the United States ordnance depart-

ment stating that Major Ware, former
professor of chemistry in the engineer-
ing college, has been ordered to repor
to divison T, stationed "Somewhere in
America."
In his letter Captain White says:
"Major Ware is the fifth man of our
chemical engineering staff to be call-
ed to active duty. Captain Rue is sta;
tioned at Washington, D. C., on poiso i
