This terse message, variously accred-
ited to every great naval commander
from John Paul Jones to George Dew-
ey, finds a not unimportant place in
the scheme of indoctrination of U. S.,
marines at their training camps.
The U. S. marine must never fail
in anything he undertakes, that disci-
pline, health, and courage are indis-
pensible to his success as a marine,
and that the "advance always, and
never surrender," ids be uppermost
in his mind, night and day, are a few
of the things in the creed of Uncle
Sam's soldiers of the navy.

Editor, The Michigan Daily:
"America" is a good song just as it
stands. Why not let it alone? It's
long enough and broad enough for
any true-blue American. Smith him-
self once tried to lengthen it. He
wrote an additional stanza for the
Chicago Exposition. But the com-
mon people would not sing the super-
fluous lines, and they were soon for-
gotten. If we need an international
song, let someone write it out of his
own head and submit it to the public
on its own merits. But as for "Amer-
ica," let us stick to the original ver-
sion, unrevised, uncorrected, unaug-
mented, and un-Briticised.

tion from tents into the barracks.

In the summer the jackies slept in
cots. Now they are living in barracks
fashioned after the sleeping quarters
m board ship, and the boys can
,amrcely accustom themselv9s to the
Reveille is blown at 5 o'clock in
the morning and the embryo seamen
have discovered that though the ham-
mock is a much warmer place' to sleep
than were the cots in tents, that in
addition to the difficulty of getting in-
to the sleeping berth, there isn't a
chance to steal a cat-nap after reveille
is blown. It was possible occasional-
ly. to elude the "Jimmy legs" in the
tents; but this troublesome petty of-
icer now is supplied with a long pole
with which he turns the sleepy Jackie
onto the cold deck if Mr. Sailor hasn't
evacuated the hammock of his own
volition within five minutes after
reveille is sounded.
The new barracks each contain an
assembly room and a library. Thus the
;ailors have a better opportunity of
getting acquainted and of studying to-
gether than was the case while they
were living in tents. All of the bar-
racks are electrically lighted and the
men may read from dark until 9 W'-
clock at night, when the bugle sounds

ZONE," by Mildred Aldrich. Small,
Maynard, and Company, Boston,
Mildred Aldrich has at last respond-
ed to the public's cry for a continu-
ation of "A Hilltop on the Marne," and
"On the Edge of the War Zone"' needs
no further introduction. Its predeces-
sor, and the name of the author as-
sures its popularity long before it is
Unless it be Mme. Huard, probably
no one has given us so perfect a char-
acterization of the French people as
we find in Miss Aldrich's little book.
Her letters, permeated- with the pre-
cious humor that is born of suffering
and sacrifice, transmit to their reader
the humblest admiration for a peo-
ple whose only regret through the
cold and discouraging winters is that
they had not more to give-the in-
dominable "c'est la guerre" spirit,
which leaves self out of consideration,
and asks only for the opportunity to
help. She tells of the men in her lit-
tle "ambulance,"-wounded, sick, war-
weary, but never complaining. She
marvels at one man who, having held
a post for twenty months, returns
without even the bitter compensation
of having once beheld his enemy. She
cannot say enough of the women, who
feel not only pity for the childless,
and regret that they themselves have
not borne more sons for France, for
is it not a proud happiness to send
sons to the call. of France?
Of especial interest to the American
public is the representation of the
French attitude toward the Lusitania
tragedy, and the welcome which the
news of the entrance of the Stars and
Stripes found among the French arm-
ies. "The sun shines, and my heart is
high. The Stars and Stripes are fly-
ing at my gate, and they are flying
all over France.
'God's in his heaven,
All's right with the World.'"

Havre, Nov. 23.-Nearly every con-
ceivable brass, copper and bronze ob-
ject which enters into the construc-
tion or furnishing of a house and
building has been requisitioned by
the German authorities in occupied
Belgium. A copy of a decree publish-
ed at Brlssels Sept. 30, which has

here, announces the proposed seizure

A list of 28 classes of objects which

cludes everything from fireplace and

insignificant to escape being placed
on the list.
The decree states that a search will
be made of all dwellings, and that all
classified objects which have not been
delivered to the German authorities
will be taken by force..

Sidney, Australia, Nov. 23.-"King"
Wartriama, of the Loyalty Islands, has
returned from Flanders where he has
been serving with the Australian ex-
peditionary force, full of hope that
the islands over which he claims
kingship eventually will become a
part of the dominion of Australia.
"While I was in England," he said,
"I had interviews with A. Bonar Law
and Walter Long of the British gov-
ernment. Just now on my way here I
have seen Mr. Hughes,ithe'prime minis-
ter of Australia. From these gentlemen'
I have been given to understand that
my beloved islands may yet come un-
der the commonwealth. I was in-
formed by the British government that
.the necessary arrangement had been
made with France, so we are but
waiting until the end of the war."
"King" Watriama was wounded with
shrapnel while serving with the
"Anzacs" in France.

per cent of the officers stationed here
can secure leave of absence for
Thanksgiving, and. when given, the
time will be for no more than 48 hours,
according to instructions given out
by division headquarters here today.
This order reads the same in regard
to Christmas, so that very few of the
officers will be able to spend the holi-
days with their families or friends.
Lack of Yarn Delays Knitting Class
Lack of yarn has hindered the pro-
gress of the knitting class at Angell
house. Mrs. I. R. Reilly, who has the
class in charge every Wednesday
morning reports that not more than a
half dozen girls have attended. Mrs.
W. B. Pillsbury, who has supervision
Wednesday afternoons thinks that the
small showing is due chiefily to the
scarcity of needles and yarn, all of
which had been previously given out
at county Red Cross headquarters on
Huron street..
New supplies are expected in the
early part of December, and the work
will begin in earnest then. .However,"
the real purpose of the class is to
help novices and if necessary ex-
perienced knitters out of the little dit-
ficulties, which arise. They are glad
to show how to turn a heel on a Red
Cross sock, or to pick up a stitch.

Washington,. Nov. 23.-Fully 9,500,-
000 individuals, or one out of every
10 persons in the United States, sub-
scribed to the second Liberty Loan, in
comparison with the 4,000,000 who ap-
plied for .the first loan.
On account of this satisfactory re-'
sponse, a third loan will probably not
be necessary this year, despite the fact
that that war, as conducted today, is
the most costly of all human under-
takings. The increased demand for
bonds indicated that the potential
market for bonds in the United States
has been broadened materially.
