ALASKA REINDEER MEAT
EXPLOITATION ATTEMPTED TO

SAVE SUPPLY OF
New York, Feb. 13.-The exploiting
of reindeer meat, particularly on the
Pacific coast, will be undertaken on a
large scale this season, in the cam-
paign to save beef for shipment
abroad. Alaska will be able to furn-
ish the larger part of the meat re-,
quired by the cities of the Pacific,
coast, it is believed, and efforts are be-
ing made to encourage the Alaskan
reindeer industry, which has grown
enormously the last few years.
Gives Indians Vocation
"The industry has given the Alaskan
Indian a vocation and made many of
them prosperous," says an official bul-
letin. "The total valuation of the herds
in June, 1916, was $2,232,843.
,Until recent years the industry has
been confined to the natives and Lap-
landers. White men have organized a
company at Nome and now have sev-
eral thousand deer. Reindeer fairs are
held annually, as cattle shows are in
Mexico Bars Tubercuar Cattle
Mexico City, Feb. 13-The govern-
ment has decided to enforce strictly
measures to prevent the importation
into Mexico from the United States of
tubercular cattle. It is asserted that
the bringing in of diseased cattle from
north of the Rio Grande, where the
American meat inspection service
,makes their slaughter impossible, has
caused epidemics in Mexico.

AFTERNOON CLASS ORGANIZED
FOR STUDENTS JUST E-
The Michigan School of Telegraphy
has opened its offices and class rooms
at 238 Nickels' Arcade for the 30 stu-
dents who have elected the operators'
course now being conducted. Twelve
sets of telegraph instruments have
been installed, and the first class has
been practicing the Morse code for
about a week.
Night and Day Classes
Mr. H. C. Baumgardner, manager of
the local Western Union office, is in
charge of the school. He is assisted
by Mr. George Sweet, an experienced
operator who was manager of the
Western Union for 20 years. A night
class meets from 7:30 to 10 o'clock five
days each week. The enrollment in
this section has been closed because
of the large number twishing to take
the work at this time. A new day
class meeting from 4 to 6 o'clock five
days a week is now being organized.
An instructor will be at the offices
every afternoon this week to take en-
rollments of new students. The tui-
tion fee is $35 for the eight months
course of instruction. The day class
will be limited to 20, and the list will
probably be filled before Sunday.
Nere Instruments Coming
More instruments have been ordered
but the government is securing every
available one, and the school has had
some difficulty in securing the prop-
er sets. Another shipment is expected
soon, however The classes are com-
pletely equipped at present, but with
the added enrollment more sets will
be needed. Two instructors are in
charge of the sessions of each class.
Telegraph operators are at a prem-
ium in the United States army and
other government service, as well as
in the commercial lompanies. The
signal corps will gladly accept grad-
uates of the course here, and they
will probably be given the rank of
sergeant upon enlisting. The Western
Union district commercial superinten-
dent, Mr. E Boning, has expressed
his approval of the school, and the
company is partially supervising the
CITY MAY INSTAlL EXTRA
DRAINS TO FORESTALL FLOOD
In order to safeguard the city from
Pfoods such as those resulting from
Tuesday's thaw, the city drain of-
ficers have put many men to work
thawing out sewers about the city and
preparing for the next thaw. The
need for extra storm drains has been
recognized and the council will pro-
bably take action on the matter at an
early date. No great damage has as
yet been reported. It is believed at
phe drain office that considerable dam-
age would have resulted had not the
temperature lowered late Tuesday

Our' concern was the first to enter the army officers' uniform

a position to obtain first class Materials, perfect fitting garments
and prompt service.
Like every other detail of men's wear, there are all kinds
of military garments, but we are selling only the best, usingn
only the most reputable materials, and charging reasonable
prices for uniforms far above the average.
* You who will be commissioned as officers in the army, will

AT THE GARRICK
"The Man Who Came Back", one of
the most interesting and gripping
dramas toivisit Detroit in several
seasons, will remain over at the Gar-
rick during the coming week.
John Fleming Wilson possesses the
peculiar faculty of weaving into his
stories red-blooded life, and heart in-
terest, and in its adaption to the stage
the spirit of the thing has remained
unchanged. Though in one scene the
play is frankly sensational, it is not
gruesome or depressing and there is
a clean cut note of comedy ever pres-
"The Man Who Came Back" tells
the story of a young man who has been
.brought up in luxury until his father
;finally tires of his idleness and cuts
him adrift without a cent. The boy
is sent to San Francisco where he
meets a cabaret singer, the beautiful
;Marcelle. The net scene takes place
in an opium den in Shanghai where
he again meets Marcelle who has gone
down the ladder, via drink and opium.
The remaining two scenes are devoted
to his regeneration, not one of heorics,
and the play ends happily. Mary Nash
,s very charming in the role of Mar-
