The American troops must hurry on

have entered the war late and every

of us the 1917 foot-

eason has been a keen disap-
rent. It has been so not because

at the start of the season, but
h the fact that the Varstiy-
d so good against Nebraska and
the complete change in the
game, possibly none of us can
discover with certainty. With

in victory or defeat there is al-
he larger consideration of sports-

vth true sportsmanship. Our

e victory shattered, we have
to be prouid of. With two of the
layers in the country out of our

remarkably well.

It appears that Michigan would be
more patriotic if we called the team

Washington, Nov. 24. - Dissolving
the Michigan national guard as a sep-
arate organization, Adjutant-general
McCain, announced today the re-as-
signment of the men of the troops at
Camp MacArthur, Waco, Texas, to
make up the thirty-second division of
the United States army.
Units of the-:Michigan and Wisconsin
national guard, combined with incre-
ments of selected men have been plac-
ed in the new organization. Cavalry,
after having been dismounted, is ab-
sorbed by field artillery and headquart-
ers troops, while signal corps battal-
ions were made a part of the engin-
eer's regiment.
Bayonne Students Form Organization
Nine students from Bayonne, N. J.,
organized Friday night at the Union
for the purpose of getting more stu-
dents from their home town to come
to Michigan. Temporary officers were
elected to establish the society on a
permanent basis.
Plans are being made by the mem-
bers 'to reach the students in the Bay-
onne high school and to prove to
them the advisability of coming here.;
A list of the senior students at that
high school has already been obtained,
and personal letters will be written'
S. Paul Epstein, '18, has been chos-
en temporary chairman.
Ships To Down Submarines In Year
If shipbuilders and organized labor
co-operate, 6,000,000 tons of shipping,
the amount stated by Lloyd George as
necessary to defeat the German sub-
marine campaign, will be constructed
by Jan. 1, 1919. Besides 2,500,000 tons
of foreign shipping under construc-
tion which have been comandeered by
the United States shipping board, there
is now 4,203,300 tons under contract
in the United States, and it is expect-
ed that contracts for 1,000,000 more
will be let during the following week.
Shipbuilders have agreed to rush the
work to the limit, having three shifts
of men working when possible.

Editor, The Michigan Daily-We
were addressed at the Band Festival
as "Women of Michigan," and that is
what we are. If there were more real
men of Michigan the undesirable at-
mosphere of the co-educational col-
lege would be done away with. The
very fact that we are women of Mich-
igan refutes all the implications
brought down on our heads Thursday
night by a man who spoke more from
ignorance than predjudice.
Women Are Interested
Because we do not air our accomp-
lishments and our part in the struggle
today with brass bands is no indica-
tion of our un-interest and inactivity.
While we were sitting idly knitting
sweaters for Mr. Simons and his fel-
lows to wear eventually, Mr. Simons
was violently working on the plat-
form and killing himself and all like
him for us. If the general attitude of
the campus were more uplifting to the
women of the University, their part
woulf be more easy and more profi-tbe
Grls Knit Every Spare Minute
Mr. Simons asks "what are you go-
ing to do?" I feel it my duty ,to an-
swer him that although we are not do-
ing all we might do, we are going to
keep on trying to do the things which
offer themselves. Does Mr. Simons
know the girls are knitting every spare
minute of their time, buying theyarn
as well as working it into shape to
be worn? Does he know that every
day the Red Cross rooms are filled with
women doing nerve racking work for
hours at a time? Does he. know that
in the recent Y. M. C. A. campaign the
women of the University made their
quota the first day, and that the time
had to be extended for the mnen; and
that afterward, when the cards were
ind'exed, the men weren't interested
enough to turn out, and the women
went over and did their work? Does
he know that on The Daily and In-
lander staffs the women are doing
more than their share, and intend ul-
timately, to take over the work alto-'
gether when-the men are called away?
Women Can't March in Streets
Because we can't march in the
streets amid public approbation and
go and do something that shows for
something, it is too bad this has to be
thrown in our faces.
And what is the other side? Men
have military training two hours a
day-yes, for credit in the University.
One fraternity gave six dollars-from
the whole fraternity-to the War
Fund and sent $400 to Northwestern in
bets. What kind of spirit is that? An
man can go and fight within three
months' time of training. It takes a
woman, who is especially fitted for
the part three years to learn to be a
nurse-which seems in the masculine
mind the only thing for a woman to do
No, we women of Michigan do nt
request commendation, but we do de-
mand recognition.
Lansing, Nov. 24.-Because several
men in Michigan doing a business of
$100,000 in the elevator, canning, job-
bing, commission, broking, wholesale,
and retail businesses, had failed to
apply for licenses before Nov. 1, Na-
tional Food Administrator Hoover not-
fied George A. Prescott, federal food
administrator, that proceedings will
be begun at once to suspend trading
operations with them.
Mr. Prescott says that the hotels
and restaurants, numbering about 2,-
900, have co-operated with him in ob-
serving meatless and wheatless days
to theextent that 1,900 have signed

pledges to change their menus on
those days to conform with the food
conservation scheme. There are no
"knockers" among the restaurant
men, says the national food adminis-
trator. The hotel and restaurant pro-
prietors will fill out blank forms each
month whereby the amount of foodi sav-
ed can be ascertained. Boarding houses'
are asking the administrator for me-
nus which will enable them to sub-
stitute something for meat and still
satisfy the laboring men to whom they
