REV. J. X. WELLS SAYS "GO-TO-
CHURCH" DAY ONLY A
Ann Arbor pastors have given their
full support to the plans for a "Gb-to-
Church" Sunday for students to be
held tomorrow, and the attitude of
many is expressed by the following
statement of the Rev. John Mason
Wells of the First Baptist church, in
commenting on the idea:
"It, is easier for me to express a
frank opinion of this subject by for-
getting my own church and my own
position in the city. My statement has.
to do, therefore, with, the other
churches and pastors, with whom I
Higher Type of Ministers
"Every student should regard the
attendance upon one of these.churches
as one of the unique privileges of
Ann Arbor. Such ministers as these
churches have, can be found only in
college towns of the highest type, and
in a few of the larger city churches.
They have messages to give which
are of the highest possible signific-
"If one i to really believe the geo-
logy, biology, and other sciences which
are taught here, and at the same time
have a vital Christian faith, he must
understand the historic interpreta-
tion of the Bible. To fail to so under-
stand the Bible, makes it necessary
for one either to reject the teachings
of the University or to discard his
Bible. Because one needs, as never
before, his Bible, his faith in God,
and confidence in the results of sci-
entific. investigation, he should make
use of the unusual religious oppor-
tunities of Ann Arbor.
"The 'Go-to-Church' Sunday, tomor-
row, will furnish a good opportunity
for the students who do not attend
church regularly to make a break
from their old days and 4p fill the
churches to their capacity, and at
the same time fill their souls with
inspriation and light.
One Sunday Not Enough
"One Sunday, however, will not db
everything. If a person has gotten
out of the habit of attending church,
he may feel awkward and strange at'
first. To get the. most from the
churches and ministers, one niust
come not only as a sponge to receive,
but as a Tight desiring to impart the
spirit of sympathy and, good-fellow-
ship, and he must come with a degree
of regularity even as he attends the
PENNSYLVANIA ROAD TAKES
OFF TWO SPECIAL TRAINS
New York, Dec. 14.-The Pennsyl-
vania railroad announced yesterday
that radical changes will mark the
service from now on between here and
the South. Two famous trains will
be withdrawn entirely-the Florida
Limited and the Florida Special, which,
have been used by vacation seekers
at Palm Beach and Ashville for the
last 25 years.
All sleeping cars will be dropped
from day trains. The number of cars
affected is said to be equal to three
full trains of passenger cars. The
Pennsylvania's action is the broadest
application of economy that has oc-
curred among the railroads since the
NATIONS HAVE HARDLY ENOUGH
TO MEET DEMANDS OF
London, Nov. '30.-(Correspondence)
-Germany is now be ieved to be ef-
fectually blockaded. Accordipg to es-
timates made here, she now is com-
pletely cut off from receiving imports
from other khan her allies owing to
the fact that the prevailing shortage
of foodstuffs in neutral countries near-
by have made it necessary for them
to withhold from her any imports
needed by their own people.
Virtually nothing is now permitted
to go , into Holland or the Scandina-,
vian countries from England, the Uni-
ted States or any other of the entente
countries. These now almost control
the whole world's exports of food-
stuffs, feeding stuffs, and raw mater-
ials of every kind.
United States Aids
This stiffening up of the blockade
is attributed here to the policy adopt-
ed by the United States in July of
withholding its exports fr'om neutral
countries near Germany except on
terms under which they oust cease
the export even of their own produce
to Germany. This principle was ex-
,pressed in London in the phrase: "We
will not send you wheat or fodder to
enable you to export meat and butter
to Germany. Until you agree to stop
your exports to Germany we will send
No Export To Germans
America's memorandum to Norway
as published in that country says sub-
stantially: "The United States will
regard all export to the central pow-
ersc as a subtraction from the food
supplies or other necessaries which
the country concerned should expect
to obtain for its own industries or
,support. It can hardly be expected
\that the United States will assist these
countries with necessaries if they con-
tinue to give help to the central pow-
Imports of oils and fats into Hol-
jand and Scandinavian countries have
,decreased from an average of 75,000
,tons a month before the war to a
;monthly average of 22,500 tons at
present according to figures made pub-
lic here. Imports of cerial and fod-
der, formerly 342,000 tons a month,
have decreased to 25,000 a month. Cot-
ton imports have declined one-half
since 1916 and imports of hides and
leather are now a mere-fraction of
what they formerly were. Copper im-
ports have declined almost, to one-
fifth their former proportions.
COUNTRY BREAKS RECORD IN
Washington, Dec. 14.- More than
11,000 men, a new day's record, were
accepted yesterday for the regular
army. Additional reports showing
that 2,000 had been accepted, arrived
too late for tabulation.
The record is lac kby Pe nsylvania,
who supplied 1,441 men during one
day. New York gave 836, Illinois 804,
and California 495 men in yesterday's
All records for recruiting for the
navy were schattered yesterday, when
the reports showed that 1,026 enlist-
ments were recorded. The total
strength of the army and navy is now
473,114. The war department officials
expect an even greater showing to-
morrow, as this is the last day when
men of draft age may be taken in
through the recruiting station.

CUSTER TO COMMAND DIVISION
Battle Creek, Dec. 14.-Major-Gen-
eral James Parker arrived here today
from Camp MacArthur, Waco, Tex'as,
to take command of the Eighty-fifth

Michigan and Wfisconsin troops at
Camp MacArthur when the camp was
first occupied last summer, has re-
turned from an observation trip on

The arrival of General Parker at
Custer is considered by many officers
here to point to an early departure
