A. D. Groves, food administrator for
Washtenaw county, assures Ann Arbor
people that there will be a decided re-
lief in the flour situation, as a result
of a meeting at Lansing, Wednesday.
Assurances of such a relief comes
from two sources. After an interview
with the officials at Toledo, Fred Heu-
,sel, one of the leading bakers in the
city, stated that within a week. he
felt confident'that the Ann Arbor City,
Milling company would be permitted
to fill local flour orders. The same mat-
ter was under consideration at Lans-
ing, and according to Mr. Groves, all
indications pointed to a favorable de-
Plenty of Sugar
"There need be no fear in regard to
the supply of sugar," said Mr. Groves.
Within a very short time, he indicated
that cane sugar would be moving all
over the country in large quantities.
He also stated that there were no
grounds for the alarm regarding a
shortage in canned goods.
The Ann Arbor City Milling com-
pany, according to Mr. G. Frank All-
pendinger, who is in charge of the
plant, hopes to be through with the
government orders by the early part
of next week. Bakers in this city

mill has a large quantity of wheat in

closing their places of business. Sev-
eral meetings have been held lateP
for the consideration of the matter,
and at. the meeting which will be held
this afternoo ui the credit asso-
ciation office, some agreement will
probably be reached.
The difficulties have been caused by
the fact that two times prevail in Ann
Arbor. Efforts are being made to in-
duce Congressman S. W. Beaks to use
his influence in the passage of the
daylight saving bill, which is now be-
fore Congress. This provides that the
time through the country will be ad-
vanced one hour. If nothing is done
through congressional legislation, the
people will have an opportunity to
regulate the time at the spring elec-
tions when the question will be bal-
The local draft board announces
there has been some misunderstand-
ing in regard to the meaning of cards
calling men for physical examinations,
and urges selected men even if they
are informed that they have passed
the examination, to remain in school,
or any other work they are follow-
Passing the physical examination
does not mean that a man will be call-
ed immediately, but merely that he
has been classified and is held in re-
serve. The board headquarters has
many visitors who ask induction into
the service because they are tired of
waiting for orders, being idle in the

'records in making physical examina-

Only five per cent of the local quota

The national fuel administration's
edict calling for two "ightless" nights
every week has not been rescinded,
and the mayor is warning the people
not to violate the order until official
announcement is made. The "light-

gan Decembers14,andhave been rig-
idly obeyed since that time. Only
lights which are necessary for pub-
lic safety are permitted on Sundays
and Thursday evenings.
Alien slackers will be sent to the
farms and factories according to the
provisions of a bill which passed the
House Wednesday. This bill will in-
clude many aliens of Ann Arbor, who
have avoided the army because they
were aliens. Edwin Smith of the local
board said that although there were
538 aliens examined by the local board,
a very small percentage of them
claimed exemption because they were
Hours of the Ann Arbor post office
have been changed in order to improve
service from the local office. Here-
after the post office will open at 7
o'clock in the morning, and will close
at 6:30 o'clock in the evening. The
change was made because very little1
mail was handled previously between
6 and 7 o'clock, and several people
have' urged that the post office open
earlier in the morning.'

Many a man who has passed his 21st
mile post has spent hours wishing
he were back again with the knowl-
edge he has now of the business world.
William Maxwell is one of them. But
he is not content to sit by and wish-
his desire is to help today's 21st over
the rough places where he himself
stumbled, and for this purpose he has
.written his enthuiastic book, "If I
At firstwglance the critic might think
that Mr. Maxwell had written a very,
humorous account of certain laugh-
able experiences, and that its whole
merit lay in its spontaneity. But a
reading of the book reveals a veritable
gold mine of sound advice, and one
finds that the rich humor is but a
secondary consideration - a sugar
coating to make the swallowing eas-
Mr. Maxwell is a happy mingling of
the old fashioned and sff~ultra mod-
ern, and his ideas are often delightful-
ly startling. He fully believes in the
value of book-learning, but he says
that, were he to begin again, rather
than put his academic training to
immediate use, he would start out on
the road to sell, and he would not stop
until he could sell anything, any-
where. Then, with a philosophy of
life which would be his greatest as-
eset, he would look for a place where
he could put his book-learning to use.
He does not advocate the fixed pos-
ition or the salaried job, believein%
that they tend to subdue the spirit,
and regretting that he clipped his
wings in that way. He laments the
modernrtendency to over-specializa-
tion, for, although he .does not under-;
estimate the value of cultivating one's!
ability along one line, he lays great
stress onthe importancepofskeeping
one's finger ever on the pulse of the'
world at large.
Although intended for the fledgling,
William Maxwell's adventures will'
find a place in the hearts of even the'
oldest and most experienced of bus-

Two collections of fossils, including
about 6,000 specimens, have been ad-
ded to the Geological museum. The
larger one consisting of over 4,000
specimens, was donated by H. H.
Hindshaw, of Alpena, who spent 17
years in collecting them. It is the
most complete collection of fossils, of
the Divonain age, which exists. Some
of the specimens are duplicated and
duplicates will be given to high
schools of the state.
The other collection was owned by
the Old Natural History society, of
Detroit. It was deposited with the
University through the efforts of Bry-
ant Walker, '79L. It was on exhibi-
tion at the Art Museum in Detroit
until the place became too crowded,
when it was stored in the basement
and left there until last fall. The
collection is extremely valuable, as it
contains many specimens from iocali-
ties where the supply is now exhaust-
ed or inaccessible.
