BAIJ FINANCIAL CONDITIONS
MARE ISSUING OF BONDS
Although the Ann Arbor city water
fairly throbs with life after each heavy
rain or thaw the city council will
probably make no effort to improve
conditions in the near future. Ac-
cording to an estimate recently made
by City Engineer Manley Osgood, the
cost of improving the water supply
would be about $200,000.
Authorities have advised the coun-
cil that for the city to bond itself for
such an amount would be unwise at
this time because of bad financial con-
ditions resulting from the war, and
also because of the great number of
Liberty bonds issued by the govern-
ment. It is believed, however, that
bonds could be floated if the people
shaw sufficient interest in such a pro-
Huron River Bad Source of Supply
"The course of the Huron river is
enough to condemn it as a water sup-
ply," said Dr. J. A. Wessinger, health
officer. "Near Dexter the river flows
by a cemetery, in fact some of the
graves are on the very edge of the
river. This is in itself enough to ren-
der the water unfit for drinking pur-
poses, notwithstanding other bad
The city recently bought the Steere
farm, just outside the city where pure
water can be obtained in abundance.
Last spring a decision was handed
down by the supreme court giving the
city all rights to the water and the
next step is to pipe it to the city. This
water supply is pure from the start
and needs no purifying processes. -
City Watei Served in Drug Stores
It was reported to the University
health service yesterday that unboiled
city water was being served with sun-
daes in a number of local drug stores.
The health service advises that local
filters may clear up the water but
that they by no means actually purify
it. All water should be boiled until
further notice and every precaution
should be taken to prevent any epid-
emic which may result.
WORLD WAR DEVELPED
'PROFESSOR SHARFMAN PREDICTS,
RADICAL CHANGES BEFORE
END OF STRUGGLE
"The Economic Phase of the World
Today" was. the subject of the lec-
ture given by Prof. I. Leo Sharfman
under the auspices of the Y. W. C. A.
at Sarah Caswell .Angell hall yes-
Professor Sharfman outlined the
outstanding characteristics and tien-
dencies of an economic nature in the
present world crisis.
He emphasized the importance o&f
economic interest as a cause of 'the
war and economic activity as a means'
of waging the war. ,
"Food will win the war," he asserts,
"is one way of saying that the war'
is being fought on economic lines by
,all the people of a nation against all
'the people of another nation."
One of the most important changes
that has come into our national econ-
omic life .according to Professor
Sharfman, is the substitution of or-
ganized authority for personal enter-
prise and as examples of this he cites
$he government control of the rail-
roads, shipping facilities and food]
Professor Sharfman predicts that
the world will see many radical
changes before the end of the present
Military drill will be given to the
members of the R. O. T. C. band at
7 o'clock tonight in the handball court
in the basement of Waterman gym-
nasium. The military drill will be
followed by band practice, and all
members must bring their instru-
ments. It is imperative that attend-
ance at this drill be perfect, accord-
ing to a statement issued last night
from the military offices, as the band
is holding so few practices, due to
their present advancement.
All cadets who failed to receive the
size shoes which they specified will
report for corrections at 10 o'clock
this morning at the office of the com-
mandant in Waterman gymnasium.
Cadets who have ordered the wrong
sized shoes must wait until further
notice is given out before attempt-
ing to make any exchange.
Orders were issued by the military
authorities last night for all cadets
to wear their uniforms to drills, un-
less they are being altered. "It is
hoped that the cadets will also adopt
the habit of wearing their uniforms
to classes," stated Lient. George C.
A list containing the names of the
cadets whose uniforms are ready for'
distribution at Henry and company
was posted on the bulletin boards last
night by the military officials. More
than 150 names appear on the list.
John C. Neylor, '17P, left this morn-
ing for Austoria, Long Island, to join
the gas defense service.
There will be a meeting of all the
company basketball managers at 2:30
o'clock this afternoon in Dr. George
A. May's office in the gymnasium,
to arrange a playing schedule.
Sailing Under False Colors
A number of students enrolled in
the R. O. T. C. have been guilty of
sailing under false colors. During
the week-end trips to Detroit the
cadets grasp the , opportunity of
wearing their uniforms. This a privi-
lege which should not be abused.
Last Saturday two R. O. T. C. men
were waiting for a car on Woodward
avenue, when two Camp Custer pri-
vates, after saluting, stepped aside to
enable them to enter the car. Similar
cases have been reported from time
Although 'the privates saluted in
good faith, believing that the students
were oficers, a gross mistake was
made by these two cadets. Univer-
sity students in the training corps are
not as yet officers, and when instances
occur like the above example cited,
the cadets ought to explain their pos-
ition. Misrepresentation should not
be indulged in at any time by an of-
Intercompany basketball games are
