Peace may like a river flow.
Mr. Barbour donates to this cause so
generously because of his great desire
that the civilizations of the East and
West be knit more closely together.
Although - he is interested in many
movements toward this end, Mr. Bar-
bour feels that the plan of educating
oriental women in this country, and
sending them back to their homes, car-
rying with them in their own way
western ideas and ideals, will help
most toward making the understand-
ing between the Orient and the Occi-
dent a real one. V
In addition to this fund, Mr. Barbour
has presented $150,000 with which to
build a new residence for Michigan
women. The building will be called
Betsy Barbour house, in honor of his
mother. It will be located where West
hall now stands. Ground for the new
building will be broken next spring.

Michigan men may point with pride
to the great clubhouse which is to be

this significant statement:
Contribution Agreed On
"The contribution of the United
States to this pooling arrangement was
agreed upon. The contribution like-
wise of the countries associated with
the United States were determined.
This pooling arrangement guarante-
ed that full equipment of very kind
would be available to all American
troops sent to Europe during the year
1918." Looking beyond 1918 the Un-
ited States will have no need to seek
military equipment of any kind away
from home. Before the present year
ends its full war resources will have
been made available.

LIVERPOOL RAISES TOMATOES
INSTEAD OF CHRYSANTHEMUMS
Liverpool, Jan. 2.-A year ago the
city of Liverpool decided to suspend) the
cultivation of chrysanthemums in the
greenhouses attached to public parks,
and grow something useful instead.
Several acres of glass were accord-
ingly assigned to be used for tomatoes.
The result of the year's work is an-
nounced in a report just published,
which states that 10,000 pounds of
tomatoes were thus grown, all of
which were sent in weekly shipments
to about, thirty military hospitals in
the Liverpool district.
