Washington, Feb. 14.-The depart-
ment of labor has completed the or-
ganization of the United States Boys'
,Working Reserve, which will give all
boys between the gages of 16 and 21
years a chance to help their country
by working on the farms and in the
shops while their bigger brothers are
fighting in the trenches. The reserve
has been made a war emergency bur-
eau of the department. .
Although many have already been
enrolled in the corps, an attempt will
be made to have every boy in the couh-
try who is eligible take part in the
movement, and to this end the week
of March 18 has been set aside as the
national enrollment period.
Can Choose Units
There are three units of the reserve,
and the boys are given their choice
as to which one they would rather
join. If they join the agricultural unit,
they will work on farms. After six
weeks of satisfactory service they will
receive the federal badge bearing the
great seal of the United States.
If they join the industrial unit, tley
will go to work in some war-essential
industry, and after 10 weeks' service
they will receive the federal -bronze
medal. The third unit is the vocation-
al unit. The boys in this unit are
advised to remain in school, but to
prepare themselves for some vocation-
al occupation. Upon the completion
of their training, and their entrance
into active service in a war-essential
occupation, they will get the federal
bronze medal.
Movement Endorsed
The movement has been endorsed
by the President, and various other
prominent men, including Herbert
Hoover,'George Ade, Theodore Roose-
velt, and many governors of states
where- the plan has already been
tried. ,
"The United States Boys' Working
Reserve is not being organized for
lads who have to work for a living,"
says George Ade. "Nearly every sold-
ier now wearing a uniform could
make more money at home. You are
not asked to work because you need
the money. You are asked because
your country needs your help and re-
lies on it. If your big brother can*
dig trenches, surely you can plow
corn.
Women Should Be Spared
Are we going to do as they have
done in England?-dress the women in
men's garments and put them to
cleaning streets, making explosives,
wiping up locomotives in round hous-
es, and doing all the hard menial
tasks? We mustn't come to that-not
while we have on'hand a whole army
of young fellows between 16 and 21,
nearly everyone of whom has gone
into some kind of athletic sport and is
physically able, and would be as mad
as a hornet if you told him he was
a man's pet and not able to do a
man's work.
"The boys between 16 and 21 will
correct the shortage of man power.
This is the trumpet call for all of
them, and they must answer the call."
To the Patrons of THE VEGETABLE
MARKET:
We trust our patrons have not for-
gotten us because of the failure of the
MICHIGAN DAILY to appear at your
doors the past two weeks. -
We are still supplying the consum-
ers of Ann Arbor with choice fresh
vegetables of 4'll kinds, strictly fresh
eggs from the farm, choice creameryt

ceive the regulation R. 0. T. C. uni-
forms from Henry and company on
North University avenue on Feb. 14 and
,15 will be given another chafice today.
Unless all these uniforms are procur-
ed by the. military men today, they
will be taken out of the store, and
,distributed after the entire number
of outfits are allotted. An additional
list was published and posted on the
.R. 0. T. C. bulletin boards last night
,for the men who have not as yet re-
ceived notification of the arrival of
their uniforms. This list contains
the names of the men who are to re-
ceive their outfits today.
Fifty-eight new cadets appeared at
the first drill at 4:15 o'clock yester-
day afternoon in front of Waterman
'gymna#um. They were organized
into a company known at .the pres.
ent as company E, First regiment.
Positions' were assigned to the men,
and temporary corporals were ap-
pointed. Acting corporals will be as-
signed 'to the company in a short time.
R. 0. T. C. men are requested by
Lieut George C. Mullen to report at

and other data, instead of visiting the
administrative office in Waterman
gymnasium.
Advanced classes will be held daily
from 2 to 3 o'clock in the afternoons,
.And 7 to 8 o'clock in the evenings in

fit of the cadets seeking promotions.

received no credit on their .coupons
,did not elect the course properly.
,They must file a petition with the
registrar asking, the administration
board to have the course properly
registered. They will then receive
the credit dup them.
One Drop WilI Kili a man
r Immediately after the formation of
ithe reorganized companies. of the
.Second regiment yesterday afternoon,
on North University avenue, two
rookies aired their sentiments about
the R. 0. T. C.
"I'm tired of school," said the first
rookie, "and I'm going to leave and
join the aviation corps."
"You are foolish," replied the sec-
1ond rookie. "Don't you know that
4hat branch of the service is like
strychnine?"
, "No, how's that?" was the Inquisi-
tive reply.
/ "Why-er--one drop will kill a
man!" answered the second rookie
as he beat a hasty retreat.
