Experiences with a motor car un-
der fire "somewhere in France;" are
accurately described by Carl H. Thor-
ington, '17P, in a letter received re-
cently by Fred J. Pierson of Flint.
"Our section has been on active
duty, on the very front, for several
weeks now, and we have all seen
many of the things you read about in
the states," Thorington writes. "We
have seen many air fights, seen many
planes fall, and heard many shells
both depart and arrive.
Car Stalls Under Fire
"My partner and I recently had a
narrow escape. We were on a heavily
wooded roard, and were just about to
turn a corner, when our motor stalled.
It was very quiet then, no shelling,
and I got out of the car to give the
engine a turn. I had no more than
stepped upon the ground when I
heard a noise like the Wolverine ex-
press coming at full speed.
"Well, this rushing thing came right
out of a clear sky. I did not try to
crank, but dropped flat in the mud,
hoping the shell wouldn't come close.
My hoping was of no avail, for the
shell landed on the other side of the
road, not more than 10 yards from the
car, and exploded with a terrible
crash. After I made sure that I had
not been hit I started to crank again.
I had only time to turn it over once
when another rushing sound came
through the air.
Thrown Against Car
"As before I dropped, or nearly did,
because the explosion came before I
was all the way down and the con-
cussion threw me up broadside against
the car. A third time I started to
crank and the same thing happened.
A rushing came; I dropped, and the
same thing happened. A rushing
came; I dropped, and the shell ex-
ploded not more than 15 yards away,
throwing mud all over us. I was
shaking so I could hardly hold the
handle, but by some means I did
crank the machine and the car -finally
left the spot."
SENIOR GIRLS PLAN
Cadets over 18 years of age may
be given a chance to attend appro-
priate training camps, according to a

age limit. All students in the military
courses who are willing to attend a
military camp, are requested to report
at the office of the commandant be-
fore Thursday night.

ordered several weeks ago for the R.
0. T. C., will be issued from 1 to 4

Waterman gymnasium. The shoes will
continuerto be distributed until Thurs-

en away at once.

CATECHISM ON WAR
Students leaving the University, or
having been dropped from the roster,
are not entitled to receive either a un-
iform or shoes, the military officials
announced yesterday. The money ad-
vanced by the students for the shoes
will be refunded if they leavehthe-Un-

that the entire equipment is the pro-
perty of the government.

The Modern Way of Eye Testing
Instead of putting "drops" in your eyes to paralyze them and then
place lens after lens in front of your eyes until you say you "think" We
have the right ones, we use an instrument, look into your eyes, make
mathematical measurements and tell you what lenses your eyes need.
This method eliminates the inconvenience and guess work of
that will make you more thoroughly enjoy the snappy
cold of winter.

The Price of War Savings Stamps
Q. Does the price of a War Sav-
ings stamp always remain the same?
A. No. The price for each month
appears on the face of each stamp.
Never pay more or less than the
amount shown for the month in which
you make the purchase. The price
is $4.12 in December, 1917, and Janu-
ary, 1918, and increases 1 cent each
month after January, 1918, until in
December, 1918, when the price is

The Women's league has undertak-
en to organize senior University wo-
men for war work. It is planned to
have the girls instructed in that
branch of work in which they are
most interested, in order that they
can be of service to their home com-
munity after leaving the University.
The, following plan of division has
been suggested by Miss Agnes Wells,
acting dean of women: The senior
girls will first be divided into geo-
graphical units which will meet once
a month to discuss individual com-
munity problems in war work, and
there will be a further division into
groups of common interest.
Each girl in the geographical units
will decide whether she will work i
the Re( Cross class, the food class
or the class in patriotic education
These groups will meet once a month
and speakers are to be secured to ad-
dress the meetings.
NAVAL COURSES MAY BE ON
SUMMER SESSION PROGRAM
Courses in naval science and tactics
will be given this summer if a faculty
can be secured to teach them, accord-
ing to a statement by Professor Boak.
Should enough students enroll, it
will also be given next year. In case
a sufficiently large number sign up,
a naval officer may be stationed here
to take charge of the course. An en-
rollment of about 150 would be neces-
The course as planned would fit
men for an examination for ensign
in the naval reserves, and would re-
quire two hours daily for two years
