Michigan women may co-operate
with the alunnae of Vassar and
Wellesley colleges in sending a unit
to France for reconstruction work.
Letters have been received from these
colleges by the judiciary council of
the Women's league, asking for co-
operation in this work in the devas-
tated areas.
SmHit Aiready OverI
Smith college unit was taken over
last week by the American Red Cross.
The unit, which was started last
spring by an alumna of Smith, has
been doing wonderful work in spite
of the fact that up to this time, it has
been totally independent. The wo-
men, graduates of the college and 25
years of age, took their own trucks,
beds, and even portable houses. They
have charge of 16 villages, supplying
them with all living necessities.
Poultry, cows, and building materials
are sold to them at cost, or even be-
low. When no other workmen could
be found, the girls themselves built
the houses. Schools, churches, and
clinics of all sorts have been opened,
but the greatest stress has been laid
on the work among children. The
greatest aid given by the unit is psy-
chological, according to the reporters
who have been there. New spirit and
hope have been infused into the de-
pressed peasantry, who now give the
girls their complete confidence.
Personnel Not Pemanentt
The personnel of the unit is not
permanent. Seventeen girls went first,
but they are replaced every six months
by newcomers. They make their head-
quarters at Greycourt, in the region
of the Somme.
Each week, alumnae of Smith meet
and sew for the unit, at the home of
Miss Eunice Weeks, 18 Cutting Apart-
ments. People who wish to help the1
cause, even though not connected with
Smith college, are very welcome. 1
Although nothing definite has been
done so far, Anna Lloyd, '18, presi-I
dent of the council, says that the
question of starting such a unit at
Michigan will be taken up very soon.
FIRE BREAKS OUT
IN CHEM BUILDING
Fire broke out at about 3 oclock,
yesterday afternoon in room 100 of
the Chemistry building and did about
$50 damage before it could be check-
ed. The first indications were smoke
and flames coming from one of the
lockers in which chemicals are kept
Prof. Walter L. Badger of the chem-
ical engineering department and stu-
dents of the Chemistry 9 class, which
was reciting, soon put out the fire
with extinguishers, although they
were forced to wait sometime for the
key to the lockers before they could
remove the chemicals and get at the
fire. The fire was the result of the
combustion of phosphorus when the
water in which it is kept drained off.
Carpenters immediately began re-
pairing the damaged equipment, an'
there will be no interference with
work.

UNIVERSITY NURSES
SERVE IN FRANCE
Nine nurses from the University
hospital training school are serving
in the war, according to a statement
made yesterday by Miss Fantine Pem-
berton, superintendent of nurses at
the hospital.
The first of these to go was Miss
Euphenie Denton who left for Eng-
land with a Canadian unit more than
two years ago. Miss Denton served
for a time at Orpington, England, was
later transferred to a base hospital in
France, and is now close to the firing
line in Belgium.
Three more nurses left for France
recently with the Harper unit of De-
troit. Another trio has gone with the
Shirley unit from the same place.
In addition to these, two .of the
Training School's graduates are at the
cantonments, one at Camp Custer and
another at Camp Francis, San Anto--
nio, Texas.
"A number of local nurses are in
the service who were not connected
with the hospitals," said Miss Pem-
berton. "Of these we have no record."

worth, the mother; Phyllis Povah El-
ton, ex-'16, the girl; Walter Boynton,

COMPAHION OF KAISER
WILL RELATE MEMORIES
POULTNEY BIGELOW TO SPEAK
IN HILL AUDITORIUM
TUESDAY
Me. Poultney Bigelow of New York,
historian, journalist, and for 25 years
a personal friend of the kaiser, will
speak on "Prussian Memories" next
Tuesday in Hill auditorium.
"My 'History of the German Strug-
gle for Liberty,' cost me 10 years of
hard and 'happy labor," writes Mr.
Bigelow in a personal letter dated
Feb. 11, "and my chief reward con-
sisted in the high displeasure of Wil-
liam II, who had looked for a pane-
gyric and found a dry crust of truth.
This was 1896-the year of the Kiel
Canal, the Jameson Raid-when Ger-
many dropped the mask of peace and
rattled her sabre, and then Germany
became the enemy of ny country and
thus the enemy of yours,"
Was Guest of Kaiser
While working upon this historical
study in the libraries of Berlin, Mr.
Bigelow was the guest at exclusive
functions .at the palace, was the kais-
er's guest also at the Kiel regattas,

Lecturs at Camp Custer
"Twenty years ago I began warn-
ing this government that the general
staff of Germany had plans drawn up
for an invasion of the United States,"
Mr. Bigelow stated in an address giv-
en before the Rotary club, and civilian
and military guests, at Camp Custer
yesterday: "Every German officer
seemed to know it. But the United
States would not believe it. Pigeon
holes at Washington today would
show reports similar to mine, made
by the military attaches of this coun-
try in Europe-and disregarded.' '
The address to be given next Tues-
day will be free. Mr. Bigelow will
draw the majority of his remarks
from his "Prussian Memories," and
actual experience while residing in
Germany.
