SENT TO MEN IN SERVICE.
To Editor, The Michigan Daily:
-not Undoubtedly every Michigan man
they who has gone into the national ser-
lect- vice with the army or the navy, abroad
this or at home, would be heartily thank-
ful for anything which would keep
the memories of Ann Arbor fresh in
ider, ,his mind. Perhaps if these memories
rsity were kept alive, many an undergrad-
sting uate who has left college before com-
anks pleting his course might thereby be
induced to come back when the emer-
gency has passed.
iique I would suggest that you present
king this idea to your readers: That any
har- reader of subscriber of The Daily or
any other college publication (The
Gargoyle for instance) who will be
next willing to mail his copy after .he has
;lory finished reading it shall be furnished
etc. through the Daily office or through
the Michigan Union with the name
eav- and address of some Michigan man
n be who is serving the country.
As an alumnus of Columbia Univer-
sity and in response 'to a suggestion of
the "Columbia Alumni News," I have
pt to been sending weekly for some time my
copy of the "News" to a Columbia
man who is in the service of the U.
ight. S. A. abroad. I believe the idea is a,
fine one. .

TRAIN MEN BEHIND TRENCHES
SAYS MAJOR-GENERAL PARKER
Battle Creek, Mich., Dec. 14.-"The
sooner we et our men to France,"
said Major-General James L. Parker,
who assumed command of the 85th
division here today, "the sooner they
will be ready for battle."
Major-General Parker further stat-
ed that Michigan men of the 32nd di-
vision, now training at Waco, have
been picked as the next contingent to
go abroad, having shown the best de-
velopment of any similar division. The
new Custer chief believes firmly that
the best place to train soldiers is near
the battle fronts where the men can
,see the airplanes, hear the artillery
and mix with real live soldiers who
are in the thick of the fray.
Having trained the Wisconsin and
Michigan guardsmen of the 32nd di-
vision except for the few weeks which
he spent as an observer of trench war-
fare, Major-General Parker is excep-
tionally well fitted to direct the move-
ments of the Custer men and his ar-
rival here will stimulate training and
possibly help in placing the 85th di-
vision nearer the top of the sailing
