"I want to tell you what splendid
work the University of Michigan's
representative is doing in the Amer-
ican University Union. I do not see
how we could get along without Pro-
fessor Vibbert, who is the Chairman
of the Union's committee on French
relations. Only yesterday one of the
professors of the University of Dijon
and a representative of the foreign
office spoke to me in great apprecia-
tion.of his sympathetic understanding
of the French people and the charming
way in which he deals with them. It
means a great deal to us to have a
professor from a representative Amer-
ican University who knows France so
intimately and speaks the language so
"You and your associates on the
Board of Trustees I am sure would be
delighted if you were here and could
see how effectively the Union is func-
tioning. I have yet to hear a word of
criticism from any of the representa-
tive French officials or men prominent
in the various American activities
here regarding the purposes or the
work of the Union."

Cadets Assigned for Vacancies
Cadets have been promoted to fill
these vacancies, according to a state-
ment issued from the R. O. T. C. of-
fice last night. A list of the promotion
will be published later.
In order to receive credit for last
semester's work the cadets possessing
incompletes must make up the work
by March 9. In case of failure, the
mark of incomplete will automatically
hange to one of "not passed," which
will act as a barrier to a degree.
New Company for New Cadets
A new company will be formed from
the students who have selected mili-
tary training this semester and who
have not registered in this department
for the first semester. They will be
given special drills until they reach
the standing of all the cadets in the
organization. As soon as this new
company has advanced beyond a cer-
tain stage they will in all probability
be split up and assigned equally to
the other companies in the cadet
The new cadets will report for drill
at 4:15 o'clock Thursday afternoon in
front of Waterman gymnasium. Ab-
sences from the first drill, and all fu-
ture drills, will be reported and re-
corded at the office. Two hours drill

"It is the duty of every undergrad-
uate not of draft age tosattendsum-
mer school this year," said Prof. E.
H. Krauss, yesterday, reiterating the
statement of President Harry B.
Hutchins on that point. "The courses
are equivalent to those given duringI
the regular session and reduce the
time necessary to secure a degree."
Professor Krauss further called at-
tention to the words of President Wil-
son which state that "it would serious-
ly impair America's prospects of suc-'
cess in this war if the supply of high-
