EXPANDING DEPARTMENTS TO
NEED OVER 20,000 STENOG-
RAPHERS IN YEAR
Washington, Jan. 21.-One of the
results of the war on the city of Wash-
ington is the establishment of a large
army of stenographers. It is esti-
mated that there are more than 12,000
stenographers at the present time,
most of whom are girls. Although
their work is not full of glory nor
very romantic, yet it is highly import-
ant, and the government could not
carry on the war a month without
The rapidly expanding departments
that employ typists and stenographers,
require more and more of them with
astonishing rapidity. The civil 'ser-
vfce commission estimates that before
another year there will be more than
20,000 of sich employees. In many
cases it is hard to find the people
necessaryto fill the demands, and
civil service examinations are con-
stantly being held for those who are
interested. The examinations are held
every Tuesday, in 450 cities; besides
these, an examination can be had at
any time in any city if there is a pros-
pect of getting three or four to take

Michigan's quintet was set back by
the score of 22 to 6 in the second con-
ference game of the basketball season
by the fast Chicago five in Barlett
It was a fast and rough battle from
start to finish, and the Michigan play-
ers easily outclassed by the smoothly
running. Maroon aggregation. From
the first blast of the whistle the Maize
and Blue players put up a stubborn
defense and it was due to the untiring
clinging and guarding of the Michigan
guards and center to the crack Ma-
roon players, Gorgas and Vollmer, that
kept the score to what it was.
It was the first Chicago-Michigan
athletic contest since 1905, and the
first time the two universities ever
met on the basketball floor. Both
teams showed the old time pep that

Camp Custer, Battle Creek, Jan.
21.-Following a number of requests
from nearby communities that coal be
sent them from the Camp coal pile,
Major General Parker issued the fol-
lowing statement today concerning
the policies of the camp:-
"While the commanding general
deeply sympathizes with the hardship
which is being experienced by certain
people of communities and would
be glad to be the means of relieving
such hardship, this seems at present
impracticable for the following reas-
"(1)-This encampment has no sur-
plus coal; has coal only for a limited
length of time and is likely to run
short unless conditions are improved.
"(2)-To loain certain individuals
or communities would instantly bring
about a demand from other communi-
tie":, perhaps laboring under greater
"(3)-The regulations of the war de-'
partment explicitly forbid the loan-
ing of army supplies to private indi-
viduals or to state or municipal au-
The official emphatically denied
that coal intended for delivery at ad-
jacent cities had been commandeered
by the quartermaster.
An emergency order of 8,000
gray kid fleece-lined gloves, purchased
in the open market, arrived at the
camp today in an effort to further
protect the men in Camp Custer. They
will be issued at once. More than 13,-
000 pairs of rubbers, purchased by the
state, have been received. A carload
of shoes and 8,000 pairs of leggings al-
so arrived today.
