President Hutchins Advises


School .Lnrollment

In view of present conditions, it is highly desirable that students
should advance as rapidly as possible in their University courses. If
called to public service, their places in that service and their effec-
tiveness will depend in no small degree upon the thoroughness and
completeness of their preparatory training. Furthermore, the near-
er they are, when called, to the completion of their requirements for
graduation, the greater the probability that they will return after
their service, to finish their University work.
I wish, therefore, to advise students to take advantage, is possible,
of the excellent opportunities offered by the coming summer session.
In my judgment a majority of the students now in attendance might
with profit to themselves enroll for the session. The courses offered
are numerous, attractive and well-balanced, and substantial credit to-
ward graduation can be earned.

"I think we are going to learn
through this struggle what patriotism
really is," said President Harry B.
Hutchins at the mixer held Sunday
afternoon at the Union. "The American
people will realize that democracy,
means" something else besides liberty,
and that there is danger in an unregu-
lated democracy. Liberty means re-
sponsibility; democracy means re-
"Anotheryone of the by-products of
the war will be a broader and more
effective patriotism," continued the
president. "We will no longer be an
isolated nation."
Summer School
President Hutchins urged that stu-
dents avail themselves of the advant-
ages offered by the summer school. He
said that the courses to be given dur-
ing the coming summer session would
be unusually comprehensive, and that,
by attendance during that time, de-
grees could be earned at an earlier

Traffic is again opened on practical-
ly all lines snowbound by the blizzard
which struck Ann Arbor Saturday.
Roads entering the city have gotten,
back on their regular schedules again
and communication has been fully re-
The Michigan Central reported all
its trains running normally yesterday,
although no trains came through on
Sunday. ' The Ann Arbor railroad's
trains are about four or five hours
late in most cases, but are all run-
ning. The interurban lines are run-
ning according to schedule. Sunday,
traffic was in about the same condi-
tion as it was on Saturday, but yester-
day matters were changed.
Telegraph Lines Repaired
The western lines of the Western
Union and the eastern wires of the
Postal Telegraph company were re-
paired Sunday and are in normal
working order again. The long dis-
tance telephone wires have also been
repaired. Mails are being handled
as usual but rural delivery is greatly
Plumbers Busy
Plumbers were kept busy night and
day answering emergency calls to
mend frozen pipes. Several calls were
also made to drain houses where fuel
could not be secured. Some serious
damage resulted in various parts of
the city.
A caravan of 15 new automobiles
became snowbound on the road be-
tween Ann Arbor and Saline Sunday,
and had to be abandoned. A wrecking
crew was sent to dig them out yester-
Other Cities Feel Attack
Other cities felt the attack much

Washington, Jan. 14.-Interferene
with railroad transportation by the
blizzard, led Director General McAdoo
tonight to establish limited priority
orders on 6oal and food for New York
and vicinity, giving the first instrue-
tions of the kind since he recently can-
celled all formal priority.
This action was taken on advice of
A. H. Smith, assstant director. in
charge of Eastern lines, who reported
that 118 ships were held in New York
harbor awaiting bunker coal and that
trans-Atlantic freight movements were
suffering to that extent. Mr. McAdoo's
orders provide preference as follows:
(1) Coal for domestic use and vital
public'utilities; (2) food; (3) coal for
bunkering the ships in New York har-
bor which are loaded for American
armies abroad and for the allies..

Probably the greatest attraction of
the Inlander which appears tomorrow
is a story by Catherine Connell, '18,
entitled "Dona Ferentesr' featuring
some very real and up to date children
of the streets. The escapades of these
waifs offer a good laugh.
A fairy story by Katherine Harring-
ton, '18, takes next honors, recalling
the time when you used to stay awake
to see fairies come in the window on
moonbeams. And did you ever sit in
the drug store and gaze longing over
your pie-a-la-mode at someone whom
you would have liked very much to
meet? If so, read "P. N. .R.," for it
has this setting and will supply you
with plenty of information regarding
courtship under difliculties.
A poem entitled "Maytime," is the
1contribution of Muriel Babcock, grad.,
and a song of the road, "The Vaga-

bond," by Allis Hussey, '21, will find
a echo in the hearts of all lovers of
the open.

Mr. Hamilton Sings
Preceding the talk by President
Hutchins, Mr. James Hamilton of the
School of Music, rendered three vocal
solos. "Somewhere a Voice is Call-
ing," "Uncle Rome," and "Where My
Caravan is Resting," all receiving
hearty applause. Mr. Earl V. Moore,
also of the School of Music, played the
piano accompaniment. "Jazz," was
furnished by 0. H. Morton, '19, Uri
Carpenter, '20, and P. E. Lyon of the
army stores methods course.
Attendance Large
The total attendance at the mixer
was appromixately 200, and Sherwald
Sedgwick, '19, who presided as chair-
man, declared that it was the most
successful meeting of the year. The
committee was especially pleased by
the attendance of so many faculty
members, business men, and army
stores students, and wishes to em-
phasize the fact that they are always
