Coneil of National Defense Has
Novel Craft Under Consid-
Plans for one of the strangest war
vessels ever proposed have been sub-
mitted to the council of national de-
fense, according to Popular Mechanics.
The craft is an enormous ocean-going-
water wheel that is intended to per-
form much the same service for the
navy as the British and French'
"tanks" have for the allied armies.
Although highly visionary and entirely
untried, it has a novel potential power
that draws attention.
It consists essentially of two big
connecting cylinders that are sup-
plied around their outer rims with ad-
justable paddles. The horizontal axis
offers space for a crew and is gyro-
scopically stabilized to support a
fighting mast. Opposite ends of the
axis are utilized as turrets for heavy
The motors are mounted on heavily
weighted sliding platforms on the eir-
cumference of the cylinders. As they
tend to climb the latter they impose
weight that revolves the cylinders and
drives the craft forward. By driving
the cylinders in opposite directions
the tank can be turned around quickly.

Ann Arbor may have a government
reconstruction camp located here in
the future. With this possibility in
mind, a representative of the Union
recently made a visit to Toronto for
the purpose of investigating Hart
house, an institution similar to the
Hart house formerly occupied a
place on the campus of the Univer-
sity of Toronto like that occupied by
the Michigan Union, and, it has now
become an institution of re-education

bec to the various convalescent hos-
pitals' in -Canada, many going to the
three hospitals in Toronto, and when
they become able to adapt themselves
to new vocations, they are given their
training in Hart house.
Here all sorts of appliances and ap-
paratus for the treatment'of paralysis
and stiffened joints are used to re-
educate the wounded.
The men are taught to use artificial
