general service while attending the
University, according to information
received by Dr. Charles W. Edmunds,
secretary of the Medical school, from
the navy department.

May Continue Studies
Every student who enlists in this
branch of the service will be allowed
to return to school for the purpose of
continuing his studies and at the
same time, remain in an inactive stat-
us unless urgent necessity demands a
utilization of his services in the navy
prior to graduation.
During the vacation periods the
dental and medical students in this
class may be called to active duty for
periods of not less than three weeks
for the purpose of naval training.
Commissions Obtainable
Upon graduation from school, the
student may apply for a commission
in the navy. If not commissioned in
the navy, disenrollment will be allow-
ed only for the purpose of accepting
a commission in another branch of
the military service and then only in
case the services of a member can be
spared without and detriment to the
naval service,
Applications, either in person or by
letter, for permission to enroll in this
department, should be made to the
1 medical aide to the commandant of
the naval district in which the dental.
or medical school is situated.

This contrary to instructions
made yesterday afternoon which
were annulled by a communi-
cation from Luther H. Beach,

ing classes. All men will meet

Holiday Spirit Permeates Pages ofI
Humor Publication's Decem-
ber Number
With an additional .two pages of
merry quips and jests, and filled with
some of the best art work produced l
on the campus this year, the Decem-
ber number of "The Gargoyle will
make its appearance on the campusl
at noon tomorrow.
Much care has evidently been ex-
pended on the selection and arrange-
ment of the material. The holiday
spirit is rife throughout the humor
publication, and the joys and trials of
the Christmas vacation are set forth
in verse, prose, and art.-
A humorous review of the football
season is numbered among the lead-
ing articles of the issue, while "The
Confessions of a Co-ed," written by
a woman prominent on the campus,'is
reported to be filled with quaint phil-
osophy and to contain much matter
for thought on the part of Michigan
men. "Peace on Earth," and "Arms
and the Boy," are two delightful lit-
tle Christmas sketches.j

Did Lead Them
Yesterday morning 26 carpenters
employed on the new library left the
scene of their labor and marched up
East University avenue.
Bystanders thought that a strike had
been called and the men were walking
out. Others suggested that perhaps
the depressed condition of the ther-
mometer had caused a temporary halt
in the work. One sympathetic maiden
even went so far as to say that she
didn't blame them for not wanting
to work in the cold.
From East University the carpen-
ters turned down Twelfth street, fol-
lowing their leader who proudly strut-
ted ahead. At his home on East Cath-
erine he stopped. "Be quiet as you
go in; he's asleep," warned Emman-
uel Kern.
And after viewing John Frederick
Kern, age 36 hours, weight 12 pounds,
the men resumed work on the Library.
