CAMP LI1RAIES PLAY
DIRECT PART IN WAR
ASSOCIATION RAISES ALMOST'
TWO MILLIONS TO CARRY ON
WORK; ALL CAMPS SUPPLIED
"Camp library service has been es-
tablished for just one purpose," said
Burton E. Stevenson, one of the di-
rectors of the War library service of
the American Library association, re-
cently. "That is to help win the war.-
This may be accomplished in three
ways, according to Mr. Stevenson. The
first of these is to help maintain the
morale of the army by providing them
with . a place to spend their spare
time enjoyably, and thus making them'
forget their loneliness and depression.
The second way is to help educate the
soldiers in the history of their nation,
and especially the history of the
events leading to the present war.
Thirdly, the library provides special
technical books to educate the men
and make them become better soldiers.
Buildings Erected in All Camps
Much has been done by the associa-
tion toward accomplishing these three
points. More than $1,600,000 has been'
raised for the purchase of books, the
erection of buildings, and the admin-
istration of the service. About half a
million books have been presented by
the public, sorted and labeled by the
librarians and shipped to camps, forts,
training stations, and naval vessels.
Non-fiction works have been purchas-
ed by the association.
Library buildings have been erected
in every one of the national army can-
tonments, in all national guard camps,
and at the Great Lakes training sta-
tion. Beside these main libraries,;
hundreds of small military and naval
camps, posts, and vessels have been
supplied with books through chap-
lains, Y. M. C. A. secretaries, and other
agencies. Automobile trucks have
been purchased- for the service in all
the main camps, and newspapers,
books, and magazines are delivered
daily to branches and deposit stations.
Send Books to France
Books are now being shipped to
France through a dispatch, office at
one of the Atlantic ports. These also
supply volumes for men on the trans-
ports.
All of these things are done with the
minimum possible expenditures for
administration and the least formal-
ity in the actual service of books. In
many of the cantonments, librarians
have volunteered to take charge with-1
out salary. Details of men to keep'

AT THE WHITNEY
"Girl of My Heart," Perry J. Kelly's
new musical comedy production will
be presented at the Whitney, Friday,
March 8. The book and lyrics were
written by Arthur J. Lamb, and the
music is by the French composer,
Jules Chauvene.
The story of the piece has to do with
the intrigue of a beautiful girl 'who
is involved in a unique financial tan-
gle. Her beauty, wit and daring aid
her in effecting a happy solution of the
difficulty and all ends well. The story
has a real plot and holds the interest
from beginning to end.
Eda Ann Luke heads the cast which
includes Vertner Saxton, Florence-
Beresford, William J. McCarthy,
Charles W. Myers, and a number of
others. The music will be; furnished
by an augmented orchestra:-.
AT THE ARCADE
In "Her Silent Sacrifice" which is
being shown at the Arcade today Alice
Brady has found a vehicle for her
dramatic talent in a tale of true love
conquering the falsities of smart P'ar-
isian society life. Miss Brady is very
beautifully gowned in this picture and
it is said that her gowns in this picture
represent an expenditure of $3,500.

cently sent by the United States food
administration to battle hunger in
France. When spring comes they will
be in the field.
Because all able-bodied Frenchmen
up to 50 years of age are fighting, and
although the older men, women and
boys have done their best to keep all
and under cultivation, one acre of
every .four in France now lies idle
from sheer lack of men and animal
power to plow, seed and harvest the
crops upon it.
Government Encourages Tractors
In January the French government
created a special credit of $6,000,000
for subsidizing agricultural co-oper-
ative societies and groups of farmers
for the purchase of tractors. The trac-
tors and plows are being purchased by
the French high commission with
money loaned to them by the United
States treasury.
These tractors will be operated
mainly in the battle scarred portion
of northern France which has been
re-taken from the Germans, as there
the property lines have been largely
obliterated. The fields there are con-
sequently large and the batteries of
tractors will be able to work there
most effectively.
Work In Batteries
In the larger areas, tractors will
work in batteries of 10 each. Crews
will consist of 10 drivers, two black-
smiths, two mechanics, a cook and a
manager. There will also be several
motor trucks which will serve for
hauling provisions, repairs, fuel and.
supplies.
The batteries are under the minis-
ter of agriculture although 75 per
cent of the operators will be soldiers.
The land plowed in 1918 by these
American tractors is expected to pro-
duce 2,000,000 tons of food, includ-
ing 450,000 tons of wheat and will ob-
viate the sending of about 400 large:
shiploads of food from America
through the perilous war zone.
PROF. R. F. NELSON TO DIRECT
MASQUES' PLAY "THE AMAZONS"
Interest in the "Amazons" which will
be presented by Masques April 26, is
increased by the fact that the play is
to be staged under the direction of
Prof. J. Raleigh Nelson who has not
only had a long experience in Chicago,
but has also demonstrated his ability
as playwright and stage manager here
at Michigan.
