College Exchanges
The University of Kansas is distin-
guished by having in its midst a fresh-
man who scorns tradition and thinks
it beneath his dignity to don the of-
ficial headgear of his class. Any
cherished hopes of fooling the public
into thinking that he is an intellectual
upperclassman have been scattered to
the winds for his name and spirit of
rebellion have been made public in
the student newspaper. And still he
continues on his reckless course.
No more movies will be held at the

Harvard and Dartmouth are co-oper-
ating in an attempt to create a new
degree to be given to students who
have entered service. President Lowell
and President Hopkins both declare
themselves in favor of some degree
such as Bachelor of Military Science,
which would tend to show the purpose
of this honor without giving the men
credit for incompleted academic work.
A medical student of the University
of Minnesota was badly frightened
when a corpse on which he had been
working disappeared while he step-

turned after an absence of a few min-
utes to find the door partly open and
the corpse gone.
The mystery was not cleared up till

Food Hoarders to be Punished
Detroit, Nov. 24.-Dealers in perish-
able food stuffs who allow it to spoil
by freezing or otherwise while they
are haggling over a price, will be1
punished and the goods seized, accord-
ing to United States Food inspectors
H. B. Evans. Every carload of apples,
potatoes, or other products arriving
here will be inspected. If any part of
it is spoiled the entire carload will be
taken over and that which is still
good will be put on sale by the author-

ENGLISH SHOE LOWERS
MILITARY EFFICIENCY
BRITISH MODEL ACCOUNTABLE
FOR MANY OF! FOOT
TROUBLES
Military training in English shoes
is held responsible for the great num-
ber of students, who are being treated
daily at the University health service
for foot troubles. Making over old
feet is becoming the chief occupation
of the health service staff. All cases
where feet have been injured, can be
traced directly back to the pointed
English shoe.
Sore Feet Keep iien From Drll
"If the English have given this ab-
surd shoe to American men, they sure-
ly have done much to keep them from
becoming efficient soldiers," said a
member of the health service staff yes-
terday. Many of the absences from
military training are said to be the
result of foot troubles.
English Shoe Fine For Dances
"The English shoe may serve very
well in going to and from classes and
for the weekly dance, but drilling on
a hard, rough ground in them is an
entirely different matter. We hope
that the increased use of the broad-
toed army shoe will do much in wid-
ening the toe of the American shoe,
and make it conform in some degree to
the shape of the human foot," the doc-
tor said.
ORDNANCE MEN WILL ATTEND
TALK ON "SOLDIER INSURANCE"
"Government Soldier Insurance" is
the topic of a lecture to be delivered
by Mr. Arthur C. Bachrach to the ord-
nance men during the first part of the
week.
Mr. Bachrach intends to explain to
the men the importance of the new
insurance act to those entering the
service. The new system entirely
eliminates the government pensions
and enables all the men in the service
to provide for their families and near
relatives.
The main feature of the act is the do-
ing away with a number of the exemp-
tion pleas, due to the fact that no one
is dependent upon the soldier or. sailor
for support. The government offers
insurance to all of the men up to $10,-
000 at a lower rate than any insur-
ance company. Payments will be made
on the installment plan, instead of
the method employed during former
wars.
ENGLISH ARMY SPECIALISTS
. TO TRAIN TROOPS AT WACO
Camp MacArthur, Waco, Texas, Nov.
24.-Four officers and four non-com-
missioned officers from the British
army, coming directly from the fight-
ing lines in France, arrived here today
to train American troops in the fine
points of trench methods, including
gas fighting, the handling of trench
mortars, and the work of the sniper.
The party is composed entirely of
specialists, each an expert in his par-
ticular field. Among the party are,
machine gunners, snipers, trench mor-
tar experts, and men who will give in-
struction in gas fighting.
FORTY SHIPS TO BE BUILT
AT YARDS ON GREAT LAKES
Washington, D. C., Nov. 24.-Con-
tracts for forty more emergency fleet
corporation vessels to be let to. the

American Shipbuilding company with
yards at the Chicago, Cleveland, Tol-
edo, Lorain and Detroit on the Great
lakes, have been approved by the ship-
ping board. These are the contracts
referred to recently as being under
consideration.
MICHIGAN GRADUATE IMPROVES

Persis M. Goeschel, the Michigan
graduate who was discovered wander-
ing about on the Steere farm Thurs-
day morning after a disappearance of
two days, is reported to be'improving

Goeschel had both feet frozen as a

STATE TRAINS PRISONERS
FOR USEFUL1.CITIZENSHIP
JACKSON INSTITUTION OPERATES
FACTORIES FOR BENEFIT
OF INMATES
"Only from four to six men out of
100 come back to us on another sen-
tence," said Mr. Beggie, deputy war-
den of Jackson prison, yesterday when
the class in criminology visited that
institution.
Class Inspects Bindery
The class inspected the bindery, the
furniture factory, the kitchens, and
the cannery, where the prisoners work
and earn money which is theirs to
spend. By means of these varied in-
dustries, every man has an opportun-
ity to learn a useful trade. Many have
shown a readiness to learn, and it is
estimated that about $1,000 earned by
prisoners in this way is spent weekly.
The bindery and cannery are running
on two shifts -at present to increase
the output in accordance with the big
demand.
Use New Housing System .
" A new housing system by which six
prisoners are put together, is working
out satisfactorily. The men get more
air and light and enjoy the increased
sociability.
Classes in elementary subjects are
being conducted with an enrollment.
of 600. Of this number 125 are in the
first grade.
The party of about forty University
students was under the direction of
Mr. A. E. Wood of the sociology de-
partment.
Interesting sits
New York and Paris designers after
confering with the commercial econ-
omy board of the council of national
defense have decided upon very
plain military fashions for women next
fall.
Food prices have increased 29 per
cent in the last year, and 43 per cent
since 1914.
Five years at hard labor in the army
disciplinary barracks at Governor's is-
land, was the sentence in the case of
a second officer on a transport who re-
fused to serve as a lookout for sub-
marines in the European danger zone.
In recognition of the services of of-
ficers and crews on two United States
destroyers, the British admiralty has
asked to bestow on them certain marks
of distinction. Persons belopging to
military forces of this country are,
however, prevented by law from ac-
cepting gifts from foreign govern-
ments.
By a Canadian order-in-council is-
sued yesterday, either Canada or the
United States may at any time call for
military service under its own colors,
any class of its citizens residing in
the other country. It will be forward-
ed to the United States government for
consideration.
Donations of feathers for Red Cross
pillgws are being solicited in many
Michigan towns.
CHILD CONSERVATION IS BIG
PROBLEM OF UNITED STATES
Judging from the experience of the
warring countries the Women's com-

Aittee, council of national defense, con-
siders child-welfare one of 'the most
important phases of its work.
At the beginning of the war Eng-
land relaxed her standards of labor
protection. Now she has fixed a com-
pulsory school attendance age at 14
without exemptions which have prev-
iously been permitted, and requires
that all working children under 18
spend at least 320 hours a year in-con-
tinuation schools. France and Italy
as well as England have restored and
strengthened their child labor laws.
Russia has ceased to grant exemption;
to concerns doing war work from the
laws regulating hours of employment
of women and children under 17.
Miss Julia Lathrop, head of the na-
tional department of child welfare for
the Women's committee, and Miss Bina
M. West, chairman of the department
for Michigan, think that the big task
in the United States is the enforce-
ment of the child labor law .and the
maintenance of present standards.
Senior Architects Elect Officers

elections of class officers Thursday
night. The following were elected:
President, C. L. Baumann; vice-presi-
dent, E. P. Bachstrom; treasurer, R.
G. Jepsom; secretary, A. A. Merrica,

as the newest, biggest, and best of the

and tuneful and a number of new
dances add variety to the program.
The company carries a scenic equip-
ment and the entire production will b
of Broadway proportions.
AT THE MAJESTIC
The Majestic program for the first
part of this week, beginning tomor-.
row, opens with the lively and original
"American All Girl Revue." Beautiful
gowns, popular music, and unique
dances make this one of the most
attractive plays of the season.
The Hebrew comedian, Lew Hilton
and his partner, Alice Lazar, will
please in their musical act, "Two Mil-
lion Dollar Dolls"; Fred and Daisy
Rial, artists of the flying ring, appear
