GOVERNMENT EQUIPMENT NOT
ADEQUATE PROTECTION
SAYS RED CROSS
"I wish to urge all girls to go on
with their knitting until they have an
offijcially signed statement telling
them to stop," said Dean Myra B. Jor-
dan in an interview yesterday after-
noon.
"The National Red Cross, in asking
for 750 sets of knitted garments to be
sent over the seas, knows positively
that 750 men are without sufficient
equipment. The men who left from
Harper hospital in Detroit have sent
back evidence that they would have
suffered even this early in the-season
had it not been for the garments which
were furnished them before they
started, by the Red Cross, and have
testified that the government equip-
ment was not sufficient to keep the
soldiers warm.
No Knitted Goods In Some Camps
"I know personally," said Dean Jor-
dan, "of men in camps where there
are no knitted garments. I also know
three commanding officers of torpedo
boats who write me that their whole
crews have suffered terribly from
cold, and urge me to send warm gar-
ments as soon as possible. One of the
men said that the. sailors wrapped
bath towels around themselves to
keep warm, and then almost perished
with cold.
Can Equip Army At Once
"We can not expect," continued
Dean Jordan, "that our government
can start out suddenly to equip so
many soldiers and furnish all of the
required warm articles in so short a
time, and I have definite information
that it has not done so."

Men With Pro-German Tendencies To
Be Fired From Army or Placed
In Home Unit
Camp Logan, Houston, Texas, Nov.
15.-Pro-Germans and men who have
German connections are to be weeded
out of the army here and no alien en-
emy will be allowed to take part in
actual fighting.
Where German tendency is found,
in steps taken by the general staff to
eliminate men of pro-German senti-
ment, each case will be dealt with
separately by General H. G. Todd, di-
visional commander, and the men will
either be dismissed from the army
or placed in some home Unit.
What will be done with the Aus-
trians, since war has not been declarJ
ed against Austria, has not been de-
cided, but it is probable that they
will be regarded in the same light
as men of German inclination.-
NURSES CUT COURSE SHORT
TO GO INTO WAR SERVICE
More than 1,200 senior nurses will
complete their term of training this
year in January or February instead
of in June, and will be released for
service immediately according to a
report of the medical board of the
Council of national defense. In spite
of the drain on the profession because
of the war, there will be no unusual
shortage, either in hospitals or in com-
munities. The usual number of nurs-
es graduating annually is 13,000 and
there has beep. an increase of more
than 2,600 in the schools of nursing
this fall.
On the average the new students
come with better educations, as col-
lege girls are going into the work in
-increasing numbers, Seniors are of-
ten assigned to practice now, under
the supervision of visiting and pub-
lic health agencies. The report also
notes that many women who have
been engaged in private work from
which they can now be spared, are re-
turning to hospital and public health
positions.
Embryo Geologists Inspect Quarries
Beginning classes in Geology will
leave at 7:10 o'clock Saturday morn-
ing via D. U. R. for a trip to the
Sibly quarries to inspect evidence of
glacial period. This will be the only
field trip of the year for the engin-
eering students.

OWNERS PETITION THAT CLOSE
GUARD BE KEPT ON
PROPERTY
Washington, Nov. 15.-Owners of
various warehouses and plants for the
manufacture of munitions, who have
given their buildings over to the gov-
ernment, are asking that their proper-
ty be more closely guarded. Fires and
explosions have occurred under such
suspicious circumstances as to suggest
the presence of enemies, and the gov-
ernment is asked to be more strict
in its permit system.
Ofiicials of the government, on the
other hand, blame the employers for
allowing many old hands to remain at
the plants. The permits are counter-
signed by the employer, who frequent-
ly asks that an old employee be al-
lowed to remain. The reason given is
that he is a skilled hand, and of more,
value. But officials claim that many
of these men are aliens, and blame the
accidents to them.
Stricter Watch
In the future, a stricter watch is to
be kept on the character and anteced-
ants of all men vouched for by employ-
ers, and permits will not be so easily
granted. The government has hereto-
fore relied on the judgement of em-
ployers in regards to their own men,
but it is now apparent that more cau-
tion must be used.
There has never been carried on in
this country the precautions taken by
English and Canadian war plants. In
these it has been the uniform practice
to surround the works with barbed
wire barriers, with a large force of
watchmen. Monitors are kept in the
plants dtring working hours, and any
sign of disloyalty is reported. The
United States does not intend to go
as far as this, but does intend in some
way to safeguard its munition fac-
tories.
Spicy News From
Other Universitis
That the new ragtime Jazz music
has come here to stay is the opinion
of Prof. H. W. Matlack of the School
of Music at Grinnell college.
"As people started to dance," ex-
plained Professor Matlack,"They found
the steps much easier when accom-
panied by music which. had a steady
rythm. From that time the music
began to assume a lighter nature."
Military training is so popular with
University of Washington women that
the numbers that are attending drill
are becoming embarrassing to the in-
Atructors. More than 100 girls are
Trilling every week.
The sergeant who is in charge of
the fair recruits, said, "I don't know
where it will all .end. Maybe they
will form a 'Legion of Death.'
"The girls are learning to handle
the pistol effectively, and they are
being instructed in methods of per-
sonal defense."
The corps is as yet without a name
and the work has not yet been defi-
nitely decided on, but the girls are
so enthusiastic that their work
threatens to vie with the boys' train-
ing corps.
Henceforth an "A" grade will be a
rare achievement for students at
Iowa, say the faculty. In the future
"A" will stand for distinctive excel-
lence and superior individual work.
