Ann Arbor Excels
In Sale Of Stamps
Ann Arbor may well boast of the
success in all her undertakings of
bringing the war to a successful term-
ination. The Thrift stamp -sale bears
out this statement, and is one of the
many ways in which this city is tak-
ing the part of a much larger one.
Reports have been circulated
throughout the country of a record
sale of Thrift stamps in Chicago some
weeks ago, being greater relatively
than the sale in .New York, St. Louis,
and other large cities. The best week
in Chicago shows that the Thrift
stamps and War Savings stamps
amounted to almost $3,000,000, which
makes approximately nine cents to
A similar comparison between the
$6,000 sale in Ann Arbor last week
with the 20,000 population shows that
the averag'e per individual in this city
is'more than three times that of the
amount in Chicago. According to Post-
master Horatio J. Abbott, in charge of
the drive here, the results are proving
to be very gratifying, and the figures
are even greater than is expected
from a city larger than Ann Arbor.
Among the persons who have help-
ed to establish this record are the
students of the University. Stamps
are being sold in almost every bus-
iness house and office on State street,
and in numerous parts of the cam-

among college operas.
It contains no drinking, smoking,
or athletic song, and the words, "col-

Fred Lawton, '11, co-author of "Ko-
anzaland," has contributed a couple of
lyrics to this year's opera. A. J
Gornetzky, '19L, well known in cam-
pus musical circles; has composed
some melodies which are slated to
make a hit. The majority of the mus-
ic is the work of Earl V. Moors, '12.
William R. Mills, ex-'18, co-author
of the music for "All That Glitters,"
is helping in the orchestration of the
score for "Let's Go!" He is enrolled
in the ordnance course which is to

TO OUTLIVE WAR
Washington, March 5.-Government
control and operation of railroads
probably will continue for 21 months
after the war.
A tentative agreement fixing that
timer limit was reached late today.
The railroad control bill now stands
as a compromise for the two years
proposed in the house bill and 18
months in the senate.
Complete adjustment of differences
in the measure is expected tomorrow
in view of intimations that President
Wilson would not object to the senate
provision which gives him power to
initiate rates, but retains authority for
their final review by the inter-state

WHAT'S GOING ON
Chicago, March 5.-The break in
athletic relations between Northwest-
ern university and the University of
Minnesota was made known last night
when Minnesota called off a basket-
ball. game slated for March 18 at
Evanston. The break was the indirect
outcome of the blizzard of Jan. 11, it
was explained today. That night Min-
nesota's basketball team enroute to
Evanston for a game on Jan. 12, was
snowbound in Milwaukee and the
game was postponed. Differences as
to where and when the game should
be played led to the resultant rupture.
GERMANY SHORT OF MALE
LABOR, EMPLOYS WOMEN
New York, March 5.-Germany has
been extremely short of male labor
this winter, according to German
newspapers. The. latest official labor
statistics published show that there
were only 56 applicants for every one
hundred vacancies for male workmen.
The market for female laborers show-
ed for the first time since the early
days of the war an oversupply, 108
applicants being registered for every
The Prussian state railroads alone
employ over one hundred thousand
women in various capacities from
section hand to railroad conductor.
Before the war there were barely ten
thousand women on the payrolls of the
state railways, employed largely as
scrubwomen although they were also
found in the telegraph department, as
clerks in various bureaus and some-
times as crossing tenders.
Minister von Breitenbach, head of
the Prussian Ministry of Ways and
Communications, said that if the war,
continued the number of women em-
ployed would increase even further in
order to release more men for the
colors. He stated in the Leipsic Illus-
trated Zeitung that the women labor-
ers had in general proved fairly satis-
factory, attributing this in part to the
fact that the use of trousers had been
made compulsory, and hinted that
skirted employees in the traffic depart-
ment and on the roadbed would have
been far less efficient.
