First promotions in the R. 0. T. C.
were announced by Lieut. George C.
Mullen yesterday afternoon.
Ronald A. Butler, '19L, Ann Arbor,
was promoted from the rank of -pri-
vate to acting sergeant-major in the

mendations have been received, but no
official action has as yet been taken.
Naval tUnit Holds
Heave-to Smoker
The University of Michigan naval
auxiliary unit held a successful
"heave-to" smoker at the Union last
night and 50 of the members turned
out to promote a greater social in-
-terest in the unit.
After a short business session,''
Luther Beach, the president of the
unit, introduced Prof. R. H. Curtiss
of the astronomy department, as the
speaker of the evening. Professo Cur-
tiss responded with a yarn on the use
of the word "heave-to" in connection
with the conditions and life of a
youngseaman. Ward Culver, '20; F.
A. Gariepy, '18, and M. G. Hedin, '18,
gave short impromptu talks.
During the doughnuts and hard cid-
er session, Luther Beach made the
announcement that Lieutenant Clark
of Cleveland, would be in Ann Arbor
Wednesday evening and plans were
immediately formulated to hold a ban-
quet for Lieutenant Clark and his
staff at the Union. Ward Culver, chair-
man of the social committee, has ar-
ranged an elaborate program for the
affair.

in the engineering building, dreaming
of bye-gone days when it raced shoul-
der to shoulder with scudding clouds
and skimmed the tree-tops of the sur-
rounding country. A few venerable
scars adorn its surface, memories of
sundry unfortunate landings. Its bas-
ket stands firmly upright, equipped
with sand-bags and life-belts, as if
waiting for some ghostly aeronaut to
pronounce the magic words, "Let's
go!" It may not wait long, according
to men connected with the laboratory,
for the old balloon is capable of re-
juvenation. Its scars may be healed
by the appropriation of a little money
by the Board of Regents and the use
of a little oiled silk.
Michigan would then be possessed of
the facilities for a few practical ex-
periments in aeronautics in addition
to the theoretical training now obtain-
ed in the class rooms.

ficials in the northwest, to proceed
immediately to arrest aliens guilty of
spreading such doctrines. Even
though they may not commit any overt
acts they will be detained and de-
ported.
The secretary's action was in ans-
wer to requests from employers and
civic organizations of Seattle and oth-
er cities, that the department under-
take the wholesale internment of In-
dustrial Workers of the World who
were blamed for industrial unrest,
particulary in the logging camps. Mr.
Wilson held that membership in the I.
W. W. organization was not in itself
cause for arrest or deportation but
that alien industrial workers or any
other aliens who preach the over-
throw of the government by force
should be taken into custody at once.

For Michigan, the playing of Born-
stein, Hewlitt, and McClintock on the
offense and Boyd's game on defense,
were the features. In the second half,
Hewlitt was put out of. the game for
personal fouls, being replaced by Ruz-
icka, who played his usual steady
game at guard.
Captain Murray and Higby divided
honors for M. A. C., each making three
baskets.
Fouls were numerous during the
play, 23 being called. Hewlitt dropped
in six of ten free throws, and Murray,
of M. A. C., made six of thirteen tries
from the foul line.
A large crowd attended the game.

WASHINGTON CONFIDENT THAT
ADMINISTRATION WILL
NOT DELAY
GERMANS MARCH ON
TOWARD PETROGRAD
Eleven Thousand Killed and Wounded
When Kiev, Capital of Ukraine,
Is Taken
(By Associated Press)
Washington, Mar. 2.-Official circles
feel confident tonight that the re-
sponses of the United States and the
qntente allies to the Japanese in-
vitation for an expression of their
views regarding the Russian situation
so far ag recent events have effect-
ed conditions in eastern Siberia, will
be returned within three days at the
most.
It is generally conceded that there
be no longer delay, as there appears
to be no disposition to enter into an
extended argument on the subject of
measures to combat German aggres-
sion in Siberia, and to protect the mil-
itary stores at Vladivostock.
One distinguished foreign repre-
sentative said today that a situation
has developed where the allies must
place entire confidence in the recti-
tude of purpose and the military abil-
ity of Japan. This belief is that there
can be no half confidence such as
would be implied by an insistence of
a pledge from Japan in advance of
any action she may contemplate.
Germans Press On in Russia
The peace negotiations between the
Bolsheviki and the Germans seems to
have been broken off. The German
advance into the interior of Russia
is in full swing, with columns re-
ported moving toward Petrograd, and
pushing along in a northeasterly di-
rection with the object of cutting off
the capital and starving out the city.
In the south, the Germans have oc-
cupied Kiev, capitol of the republic
of Ukraine. Reports indicate 4,000
killed and 7,000 wounded in the drive
on the city.

of the series of patriotic war lectures
being given under the auspices of the
Michigan Union, at 7:30 o'clock Wed-
nesday evening at the School of Mu-
sic. The speaker has chosen for his
theme "The Prussianizing of Ger-
many."
Professor Frayer's subject comes
within his field of special study, and
for that reason promises to be of un-
usual interest.
The success of the first lecture of
this series, given by Prof. C. H. Van
Tyne last Wednesday evening, is a
source of much encouragement to the
Union, and it is hoped that an equally
large audience will greet Professor
Frayer.

least one friend with him. Faculty

Work on the Forge Products cor-
poration at the intersection of Hill
street and the Ann Arbor Railroad,
where the Cram coal yard islocated,
will begin immediately, according to
a statement made yesterday by L. J.
Hoover, president of the Forge Pro-
ducts corporation. The property was
purchased two years ago at a price
of $6,000.
Investments for machinery, build-
ings, and land will amount to approx-
imately $82,000, said Mr. Hoover to-
day. An estimate of the net earnings
per year on a nine hour day basis
shows $287,817.60, which is 144 per
cent on the common stock. The com-
pany will manufacture high speed
steel forgings and valves for automo-
bile and gasoline engine purposes.
Enough business has been booked
ahead to keep the mill running 18
months.

Acting Dean Agnes E. Wells return-
ed yesterday from Atlantic City where
she has been attending a conference of
deans of women for the past week. The
meeting was held in connection with
the convention of the superintendents'
division of the National Educational
association. "The meeting was a large
and an enthusiastic one," said Dean
Wells, "and the keynote of everything
was co-operation in war work. The
most vital note sounded in everything
is food conservation."
Before leaving the east Miss Wells
spent some time in Washington wher'
she conferred with members of Mr.
Hoover's committee regarding the new
food courses which have recently been
introduced into the University.
U. S. TO CALL OUT LAST YEAR'S
MEDICS SAYS DR. VAUT{GIAN
All medical students who graduated
from the University last year will be
called into government service next
July according to Lieut.-Col. Victor
C. Vaughan. The law allows seven
physicians for every 1,000 people, and
therefore he says that an army of 2,-
000,000 physicians could be placed in
government service without endanger-
ing the home population. Lieutenant-
Colonel Vaughan commends the gov-
ernment in taking. action to keep men
in medical schools to complete their
courses. This will prevent a dearth
in physicians such as has occurred",n
