ILLINOIS GOVERNOR IN
1AYSS UNIVERSAL SERVICE IS
NECESSARY FOR VICTORY
IN WORLD STRUGGLE
Chicago, Ill., Feb. 21. - Frank 0.
Lowden, governor of Illinois, speaking
here today at the convention of the
National Security league, declared
himself in favor of universal military
service as the answer of America to
the menace of the German war party.
Prefacing his address with the
statements that the present world
struggle is "only the fruit of a con-
spiracy hatched a half century ago,''
by the military party of the German
empire, the governor said:
"If our people shall understand the
meaning of the war they will pay the
price whatever it may be, for- victory.
"We have the men to win-the sel-
ective draft is the outstanding achieve-
ment in preparation for this strife.
But the German war lords, still fight-
ing not on their own soil but on that
of their enemies, hearten themselves
with the belief that this is but a tem-
porary device and that we shall soon
weary of it. Our answer should be a
permanent law, providing for univer-
sal military training. We have man-
hood suffrage. There should go with
it manhood service."
Governor Lowden said the wealth of
the nation is adequate for all war ex-
igencies, but said the expenditure of
war moneys should be a question of
close co-ordination. "We also have
the material resources to win if we
but marshal them," he said. "I have
no doubt but that your distinguished
body will inquire if the time has not
come to write down a definite finan-

ABANDONING OF BUILDING
Lansing, Mich., Feb. 21.- Lansing
builders and traders exchange- has
started a campaign in the state to
protest the suggestion of Secretary
of the Treasury McAdoo that building
be abandoned this year. The state ex-
change and the national body will be
asked to join the movement. It is
pointed out that factory expansion in
Lansing and other cities with large
war orders requires additional hous-
ing facilities and that the home build-
ing workman is the best workman.
Lansing already has a scarcity of
houses and it is asserted that to dis-
courage building of more would great-
ly handicap industries.
MICHIGAN WOMEN PLEOGE
WOMAN'S WAR CONFERENCE CON-
VENES AT LANSING TO SUP-
PORT FOOD CONSERVATION
Lansing, Mich., Feb. 21.-Patriotic
women from all over Michigan came
to Lansing today to pledge their sup-
port to the government in a nation-
wide campaign to enlist woman's as-
sistance in stimulating food conser-
vation and. food production. The
meeting, known as the Women's War
Conference, was conducted by repre-
sentatives of the woman's committee
'of the council of national defense. .
Mrs. William B. Williams, of Lap-
eer, was named chairman of the state
branch of the national organization.
A plea for an invincible "Woman's
Land Army' was made by Mrs. Fran-
cis King, of Alma, president of the
Woman's National Farm and Garden
:association. She urged Michigan wo-
-men to lend every possible assistance
on the farm and in the garden; to
conserve in the home and to teach'
others to do the same.
"There is no need to enlarge upon
the matter of more food this year,"
said Mrs. King. "There is no need to
remind an audience like this of Hoov-
er's prediction of the possibility of
;famine in this country by October.
These things are known to us all."

Physicians attached to the local
draft board are having considerable
trouble regulating their examinations
to conform with the requirements of
both the administrative officers and
cantonment physicians. The local
physicians have been informed that
fewer men have been rejected from
Ann Arbor than any other city in the
state on the examination conducted
by the cantonment examiners.
The local board complains because
the war department are setting the
physical standards for accepting draft-
ed men much lower than that set by
the army surgeons.
Many local students who have regis-
tered under the draft have had their
physical examinations transferred to
Washtenaw county and the local ex-
aminers publish the following hours
for examinations: Dr. Louis Romin-
ger, 307 Fifth avenue, 8:30 to 10:30
o'clock in the morning; Dr. R. G. Mac-
Kenzie, Liberty street and Fifth ave -
'nue, 2 to 4 o'clock in the afternoon.

Wash., where they will enter military
service in the Spruce division of the
