Harold Humphreys, '16, of French
Ambulance Corps Returns
with War Tales

d

ELER
NRCA DE

Harold Humphreys, '16, who has re-
cently returned from six months' ser-
vice in France with the French am-
bulance corps, has been in Ann Arbor.
for the past few days, and has told
son e of his experiences on the French
front.
Left with Princeton Unit
Mr. Humphreys left last spring wvith
the Princeton ambulance unit, and,
upon his arrival in France, was as-
signed for duty with the Alpine chass-
eurs on the Aisne front, near Chemin
des Dames. He says:
"Ambulance drivers work under fire
most of the time, and the driving is
done at night with no lights.
shells burst continually in our vic-
inity, often making holes in the road
as large as an excavation for a good
sized house. A driver must constantly
be on the lookout for this sort of
thing, and consequently the going is*
slow.
Call Comes From "Nigger Valley"
"One night a call came from "Nig-
ger Village," a post several ' miles
from our encampment. Two of my
companions made the trip. They got
the wounded out and were half way
back with them, when they were shell-
ed by the enemy. Both were blown to
pieces and two of the wounded were
killed. When the ambulance came
back, the only traces of the driver was
his little finger still on the wheel.
"We are five days in ,the trenches
and five days out. During the five in,
ve are subject to call at any time."

Twenty-five recruits swelled thes
ranks of the "Legion of Death" in the
second preliminary meeting held last
night in Barbour gymnasium. Under
the direction of Myron Orr, assisted
by two sergeants of the cadet corps,
the rookies were drilled and redrilled
in the rudiments of military march-
ing.
Orr Disapproves of High Heels
Mr. Orr was emphatic in his disap-
proval of high heels. He advocated
a straight army shoe and displayed
several modes of broad footwear for
the girls' inspection. He lamented
the slouchy gait so frequently assum-
ed by students on cold mornings.
"How can you breathe fresh air into
the lungs when you shrink into your'
clothes like a turtle into its shell?"
he said.
May Present Military Pageant
The class is considering the advisi-
bility of presenting a military pageant
in the spring. Classical dancing and
military drills will feature this event,
which will probably consist of court
scenes at the time of Solomon and
the Queen of Shebah.
The next meeting will be held at
2:30 o'clock Wednesday afternoon in
the field opposite the gymnasium if
the weather permits, otherwise the
members will gather in Barbour gym-
nasium.
Christian Science Students Meet
Members of the- Christian Science
Students' society held their regular
meeting last night at Newberry hall.
The program consisted of an inform.
al discussion and testimonials. The
meetings are held every other Thurs-
day night at Newberry hall and are
open to the public.

Gilbert McClurg, the celebrated lec-
turer, will speak at the Ann Arbor
high school this evening using as
his subject for a travel lecture "To
the Shining Mountains and the Sun-
set Sea." The travelogue will be an
illustrated - one and many interesting
stereopticon views will be shown.
The proceeds from this entertain-
ment will go to the War library fund.
The board'of education will hold a
speciahlmeeting next Thursday to vote
upon the issuance of bonds amount-
ing to $75,000 to use'\in building ad-
ditions to the Eberbach and Chris-
tian Mack schoolhouses. According
to Superintendent of Schools Slauson,
conditions in these schools are very
crowded.
At a monthly meeting of the board
yesterday, a recommendation was
adopted that junior and senior stu-
dents in the high schools should be
given courses in military instruction.
The committee on war library funds
also reported at this meeting that
$600 of the $750 quota had been rais-
ed.
Many teachers' appointments were
made yesterday. Mr. Ralph Carsen,
instructor in the English department
of the Engineering college, was ap-
pointed coach of the high school de-
bating teams. William Huhn was en-
gaged as assistant coach and Misses
Myra Moon and Lucille Feiner ware
engaged as assistant librarians.
FIRST REGIMENT MAY ATTEND

bers of the second regiment are un-
able to be present at the smoker to
be held at the Union next Saturday af-
ternoon, the sale of tickets will be
opened to members of the first regi-
ment drill today.
Among those who will attend this
smoker are President Harry B. Hutch-
ins, Secretary Shirley W. Smith, Dean
John R. Effinger, and Treasurer Rob-
ert A. Campbell.
