Ann Arbor has benefited by the re-
turn of Monday as a working day in
more ways than one. A general esti-
mation reveals that with the restora-
tion of; Mondasy as a businesstday,
that the city has increased its trade
by approximately $10,00 a week.
SStatistics tell us that a fair. com-
parison between the income of some
other city carries the same propor-
tion as that of Ann Arbor, and con-
sequently the above estimate is bas-
I ed entirely on an assumption. De-
troit, with a population of about 800,-
000 people pays out about $1,250,000 a.
day, and after a series of calcula-
tions, the inference is that Ann Arbor
pays out about $10,000 a week.
All business people aver that the
closing of Mondays had shown a de-
cided increase in their week's busi-
ness, and that the day as far as busi-
ness was concerned was lost. The r -
sults of the opening of business houses,
on Monday proved very satisfactory,
and the ladies' stores especially are
enjoying the fruits of the old bargain

I 1 1JLY Detroit, Feb. 26.-A flotilla of at
least 50, perhaps 100, police autos will
ur take the way soon in the battle against.
crime. The council has already voted
G RAPI-IS ypurchase of 50, and may raise the
limit to 100, the number asked by the
police department.
iodations The police are convinced that the
only way to check the increasingly
619 E. LIBERTY numerous motor bandits is to fight
them with a mobile force.
Robberies will continue, it is as-
serted, as long as a stickup man thinks;
he can do his work and then jump into
an auto with comparatively little fear
I S of being overtaken.
d l The poice force is composed now
of 1,039 men, including 96 detectives
ollege Spirit" 'and 72 sergeants. Vacancies number
147 and great difficulty is being ex-
perienced in obtaining new men.
&" C The commission is seeking author-
. ity to increase the force and is said
Detroit to have under contemplation to es-
a. tablish a motorcycle squad of 100 men
whose specialty will be curbing "auto-
E HOLD MEN AS mobile bandits,"

A Take it to a post office, bank, or
other authorized agency, surrender
the card and pay in cash the few cents
difference between the $4 worth of
Thrift stamps and the price of a War-
Savings stamp for the month in which
the exchange is made.
Q. What do I do next?
A. You take the War-Savings stamp
given you in exchange for your Thrift
card, ask for a War-Savings certifi-;
cate, if you haven't one already, and
attach the stamp to the certificate.
Q. Should I continue to buy Thrift
A. Yes. Ask for a new Thrift card
and begin again.
Q. Do Thrift stamps bear interest?
A. No.
Q. Then why are they issued?
A. To make it convenient for you
to save in small amounts so that you
can purchase a War-Savings stamp
which does bear interest.
Q. May I exchange Thrift stampt
for War-Saving stamps at any time?
A. No; only on or before Decem'
ber 31, 1918,
Lending Yoaur Money to tine
Q. What security is behind the War-
Savings stamp?
A. The United States government'
.promises to pay $5 for each stamp on
January 1, 1923. This promise is
backed by the faith and honor of the
LTnited States and by the taking pow-
er of this country, which is the rich-
est in the world.
Q. Why does the United States bor-
row this money?
A. To pay the expenses of the war.
Q. When I lend my money to the
government, would it be safer to buy
a government bond rather than these
War-Savings stamps?
A. When a. War-Savings stamp is
attached to a War-Saviugs certificate
it becones a government obligation
with the same security as the Liberty
bonds now held by more than 10,-
'000,000 Americans.
Q. Is the 4 per cent interest com-
pounded quarterly, on War-Savings
certificates paid in the same way as
the interest on Liberty bonds?
A. No. The Liberty bond interest is
paid every six months, but the .inter-
est on the War-Savings certificate ac-
cumulates and is paid to you in one
sum, on January 1, 1923,

Circulars illustrating the literary
college and setting forth the advan-
tages of the University, will be sent
out to the various high schools in the
state and to other parts of the coun-'
try that have sent men to Michigan.
This is' the first time the University
has attempted such a scheme of pub-
licitysthoughdsmaller institutions in
the state and other large colleges
have used it successfully.
The purpose of the circulars is to
inculcate upon the minds of the high
school students the necessity during
these times of stress of obtaining a
higher education. Quotations from
President Wilson, former presidents
William H. Taft and Theodore Roose-
velt, and American and English
statesmen, to the effect that highly
trained men along special lines will
be needed for the reconstruction per-
iod following the close of the war,
will be inserted in the circulars.
Plans are being made for the com-
position of the circulars which will
be drawn up within a month.
Mr. Fred Heusel, one of the bakers
in this city, who has been affected
by the flour shortage here, went to
Toledo yesterday, to place the situa-
tion before the government officials.
He bases his hopes on the fact that
the Michigan Milling company has.
sufficient wheat in her elevators to_
supply Ann Arbor for an unlimited
time. He also had proof that the
Michigan Milling company did note
consume the 70 per cent allowed them
by the government, and is therefore
justified in filling the local orders for
"If I cannot get any satisfaction
there," said Mr. Heusel, "I am going
to visit the officials at Washington."
At present the condition in Ann Arbor
remains unchanged. Most bakers will
be able to continue operation for over
a week, and one or two even for three
weeks, However, they are hopeful
that there will be a relief in sight be-
fore very long.

U. S. Has Good Financial Record
Washington, Feb. 26.-The credit
of the United States was so high and
unquestionable, says a bulletin of the
treasury department, that in 1909, two
years after the panic, 2 per- cent bonds
were offered at par and oversubscrib-
ed. This is a financial performance
that no other nation has ever equaled.
The United States has never de-
faulted on any of its bonds. Not one
of its bondholders has ever lost a
cent of principal or interest except
those who have voluntarily taken
losses by selling their bonds in a pe-
riod of temporary price depression.
United States 4 per cent bonds in
1888 sold as high as 130 and in 1901
brought 139 7 on the stock market.
