Prof. &. H. Curtiss of Astronomy De-
partnmet to Have Charge of
President Harry B. Hutchins has
approved a course in navigation to be
given by Prof. Ralph H. Curtiss of the
astronomical department,.during the
second semester of the present acade-
mic- year. The new course will be
pntered in the curriculum of studies
as astronomy 22.
The course was formed priamrily
for students who are interested in
pautical service, and to prepare a num-
ber of University men for navigation,
as a part of their regular college work.
No Prerequisites Required
No definite prerequisites are requir-
ed, but familiarity with trigonometry
and the use of logarithms will help
those entering this new navigation
The principles of piloting and gen
eral seamanship, dead reckoning, rules
of the road of sea, nautical astronomy,
and signalling, according to the inter-
national code will be included.
Special stress will be laid on the
subjects which were covered under
avigation in the reserve officers' train-
ing camps for the benefit of the stu-
dents enrolling in the naval reserve
Consideration will also be given to
the additional topics included in the
curricula of the free navigations
schools of the United States shipping




Bureau on Industrial Service Created
- as Section of Defense
Officials of American Federation of
Labor To Co-operate With
Washington, Dec. 1.-Labor supply'
will be adjusted to war needs by a,
newly created section of the councill
of national defense. The new section
is. known as the bureau o industrial
service. This bureau , of which L. Ca.
M rshall, dean of the University of
Chicago school of commerce, is
the head, will will andertake
to, investigate the increasing number,
of labor problems arising in direct
ratio to the growing demands for
war supplies.
This inquiry, it is announced, will
have four main objects: namely, to
determine present and probable future
demand for labor in war industries.
to determine, in connection with the
priorities committee on the war Indus-
tries board, relative priorities of the
labor demand, to arrange for supply-
ing the demand through the depart-
ment of labor or other governmental
or civilian agencies, and to determine
neds for the dilution of labor, includ-
ing introduction of women into indus-

That meatless Tuesdays are being
observed by a great part of Ann Ar-
bor housekeepers is evident from the
ttatements of meat dealers. Proprie-
tors of 15 markets were interviewed.
Four stated that their sales Tuesday
were only one-third of other days and
give others that they were only half
as large as the average. One said
that he sold practically no meat on
Tuesday. The other five who were
ppproached said their sales on that
day decreased but not to any great

or no pork since the price has made
,such large advances. Local dealers
report decreases of from 25 to 75 yer
cent in the sale of pork in compari-

Though one market has noticed no
difference, another one has practically
no call for this kind of meat. One
lealer has quit handling salt pork en-
tirely as his sales of it were so few
that it did not pay to bother with it.
Even those who still handle large
amounts of other forms of pork sell
only small quantities of the salted

Bureau Collects Information
The bureau will have functions
comparable to the duties of the war
industries board, and will bring to
the defense council digested informa-
tion regarding labor questions but
will not have power to take executivel
action. Except in the case of ship-
yards and railroads, there is no ser-
ious shortage of workers in the war
industries, but with the increased de-
pand for munitions and subsistence
;upplies, it is expected that many fac-
tories will need hundreds of men.
At the same time, unemployment is
expected to result in other lines of
work not essential to the conduct of
the war and which will be forced to
curtail production by lack of mater-
ials and less purchasing of non-essen-
tials',by the public. It will be the
task of the new section, aided by union
officials te'adjust the need for men to
the men needing work. The Ameri-
can federation of labor has promised
to co-operate and will send officials
to confer with the council.
Conductors and Trainmen Ask Raise
Cleveland, 0., Dec. 1.-Demands
were presented to practically every
railroad in the country today, for an
increase in wages for trainmen and
conductors which is approximately 40
per cent higher than the present scale.
The railroads are asked to make an-
swer by Dec. 31.

A number of men have been drafted
within the last month, and a great
many have enlisted.
Reports from the engineering col-
lege state that many of the students of'
that department have been summoned
by their draft boards, and that many
are entering the service.
Some of the engineering students who
were named in the selective draft have
been allowed to finish school before
being called, while others have been
summoned to appear at once. It seems
that the draft boards have not been
advised officially on this point, .and,
are doing as each considers best.
Aviation Most Popular
Aviation appears to be the most
popular with the men who have enlist-
ed within the last month. Beside the
large number who have already enlist-
ed in this branch of service, there are
also many who have applied, and are
awaiting acceptance.
Two i-crrect impressions arepre-
valent on the campus.. with regard to
the proposed naval reserve corps in
the organization of which Captain Mof-
fatt, commandant of the United States
naval training station at Great Lakes,
III., is interested. In the first place, it
has been stated that those enlisting
za the naval reserves would =be eligible
for service on the Great Lakes and in
the coast-wise trade only. This is
wrong; naval reserves are subject to
duties in all spheres of naval activity
which the navydepartment directs.
Naval Reservea List Still Open
The report has been circulated that
the list of applicants has already been
closed. On the contrary, there is still
ample room for many others who
wish to enlist when the unit is or-
ganized. All men who desire to hand
in =their names to indicate their will-
ingness to join the corps may register
at the Union.
Several applications for the .naval
auxiliary were received yesterday by
Luther Beach, '18E, who will furnish
any information on this branch to any
one desiring it.
Although the enrollment of this or-
ganization has been officially closed J
Cleveland, the department recognizer
the superiority of college trained men,
and will not only accept applications
from Ann Arbor for a. limited time,
but have already made arrangements
with Washington for students enroll-
ing now to complete the present sei-n
ester's work before being called.
