Tren Per Vent Sent Home; Heart
Trouble to Blame in Majority
of Cases
Battle Creek, Nov. 26.-Ten per cent
of the last increment of selected mena
at Custer will be rejected because of
physical disabilities, heart afflications
being more prevalent than any other
cause, according to an announcement
given out today by the examining
board here.
The method used at present in con-
ducting the physical examinations
sends all suspicious or doubtful cases
before the board within 24 hours .after'
they have been examined by the regi-
mental physicians. This has proved to
be superior to the old method.
Officers here are enthusiastic over
the rapidity in which the new men are
training. The presence of a few old
hands in the new squads makes the
progress of the rookies marked. Some
of the men who have but recently ar-
rived are presenting almost as mil-
itary an appearance as some of the

David A. Forbes, president of the
second year class of the literary col-
lege said, "I see no good reason for
abolishing the flag rush and cane
spree. However, if the faculty will
not allow it, a suitable substitute
should be found at once so that some
kind of games can be held this fall."
Carl T. Hogan, president of the 1928
engineers, when asked his opinion, re
plied, "I am in favor of the flag rush
or of any other contest which will
really take the place of it. There should
be something done about it at once."

Wants American Statues For London
London, Nov. 26.-A plea for the
erection of more statues of great
Americans in London was made here
this week by Professor Sumichrast of
Harvard, speaking before the Ameri-
can Luncheon club. &
"We who have the chance," he said,
"must do all in our power to make
England better known to Americans,
and America and its people better
known in England.. Any misunder-
standing that may exist between the
two countries is purely the result of
ignorance of one another. I would
have statues of every great American
set up in London, so that every Eng-



Save Pigeon for War Urges French
London, Nov. 26. - Field Marshal
Lord F'rench, commander-in-chief of
the home forces, has issued a circular
pointing out the serious results which
may follow the shooting of pigeons
by careless hunters.
He says that two pigeons, carrying
messages from seaplanes in distress,
were recently shot down, and their
messages were therefore several days
late in reaching the authorities. This
incident and the fact that the shoot-]
ing of pigeons has already caused the
loss of several valuable birds 'and in-
terfered with the training and use of
pigeons for naval and military pur-
poses, has led Lord French to in-
struct local magistrates to exercise
no clemency in further cases of this
French Army Adopts Soccer
Paris, Nov. 26.-All French regi-
ments will have in their official equip-
ment hereafter a football. This an-
nouncement, made by the war office,
shows the popularity in the French
army of the game of soccer. While 20
years ago football was hardly known
in France, there is hardly a town
today which does not possess' one or
more elevens, and the game is played

Washington, Nov. 26.-Tanks for

as effective in every way as those used
by the British in their great drive it

construction or as to number of ma-

Secretary Baker refused to discuss
the subject either in general or specific
terms. There is every reason to be-.

gress has been made in producing
fighting machines that embody all that

British Battleplane Named for Woman
Melbourne, Australia, Nov. 26.-At
least one of the Australian battle-
planes being provided for the British
air service in this war, chiefiy by the
rural districts of the commonwealth,
will go into action bearing the name
of a woman. Miss Elizabeth Campbell
of Inverell station, New South Wales,
recently gave the defense department
S18,500 for the purchase of an air-
plane for the British government. Ar-
rangements were subsequently made
through the Australian high commis-
sioner in London that the battleplane
shall bear the inscription, "Elizabeth
Campbell of Inverell Station." Miss
Campbell was thanked by the defense
department for her gift.
