IMPROVING IN THE U.S.
TRAFFIC BLOCKADE RELIEVED
TllR%)Ut0GH MODERATION IN
Business throughout the country has
taken a turn for te better during the
past few weeks. Prospects for an
early return to normal conditions
seem good, as the moderation in the
weather has relieved the traffic block-
ade to such an extent that credits de-
pending upon transportation are be-
ginning to be liquidated.
Winter Wheat in Good Condition
Winter wheat is in good condition
so far. The month of March is the
telling one with this crop and "much
depends on the weather during the
next 30 days. There is a great amount
of corn in the fields still to be husked.
The heavy snows will leave the soil in
excellent condition, and, barrifig any
unforseen inclemency in the weather,
the outlpok is bright.
Agricultural implement concerns
fear that they will be unable to make
delivery of machinery by the time it
Is required for the spring planting.
This fact is due to the inability in the
past months to secure the necessary
raw materials to go to the manufac-
turer, and also the present limited
and uncertain transportation facilit-
ies. Volume of orders is normal. and
collections are reported good.
Production of Mines Curtailed
During the past' months, the pro-
auction of mines of Illinois and In-
liana has been greatly curtailed. The
burden of supplying this district has
been placed entirely upon these mines,
no coal being received from outside
sources. Production is expected again
to approach normal with a continu-
ance of mild weather.
-omobile manufacturing condi-
tions remain about as previously re-
ported, with a large part of the ener-
gies of this industry directed toward
government needs. The blockade of
the last few weeks has reduced to the
mninimum shipments by railroads for
private use and the so-called roading
,f cars has been made impossible due
to the heavy snows. Both difficulties
ire now righting themselves, promis-
ing more satisfactory deliveries for the

The war gardens committee of the
Civic association are urging all local
people who have available land to
utilize it for vegetable produce. The
home garden movement of last year,
according to estimates cited by the
Secretary of Agriculture, resulted in a
200 per cent increase in the land used
for gardening, and the local commit-
tees are being urged to make even a
better record this summer. Need for
more food this year is expected to re-
,ult in even a greater number of gar-
dens. The new bulletin is designed tc
aid not only the profession but also
the amateur farmer. The bulletins are

City Engineer Osgood has resigned
his position with the city of Ann Ar-
-bor to accept a position in the gov-
ernment's service in the shipyards at
Bristol, Pa. His resignation will go
into effect Thurday and he will leave
immediately to take his new position.
A detail of 15 local men drafted by
the selective service board left yes-
terday for Vancouver barracks where
they will enter army service in rail-
road construction and logging.
After eight months in the service,

from the position of captain to lieu-
tenant-colonel. He was a member of
the graduatingclass of the medical
school in 1908.
The congregation of Zion Lutheran
,church have completed a campaign
to raise funds and announce that a
sum of $2,150 has been secured from
donations. This money will be used

The Lutheran church has 165,000 men
in the National army, 47 of whom arc
members of the local congregation.

"When a man is spoken of as having
lost himself, he has generally lost
,everything but himself," said Dr.
Charles W. Flint, president of Cornell
college, Mt. Vernon, Ia., in his talk
on *"Finding Ourselves" Sunday night
at the Methodist Episcopal church.
The speaker declared that many
people considered the United States
in just this position previous to the
gwar, when is was claimed by foreign-
ers that the emblem of this country
was the dollar sign.
"We have found ourselves in this
war," said Dr. Flint, "just as England,
.France and the rest have found them-
pelves, for by signing the Hague treaty
we took our place in the politics of
rEurope, and staked the spirit of Am-]
erica against the spirit of Prussia,
its diametric opposite. America has
found herself and has gone forth to
take up the cause of civilization
