DECIDED BOOST NECESSARY TO

"Unless the sale of Thrift stamps
takes a decided boost within the next
few weeks, Washtenaw county's quota
of a $1,000,000 worth of the baby
bonds will be a fiasco," declared Mr.
Francis Bacon, '02, yesterday.
"The way in which the county and
particularly the University students
are taking hold of this government
enterprise, which is so simple and
profitable that it is eat patriotism, is
worthy -of unfavorable comment. It
is deplorable to think that the year
is now a sixth over, and the sale of
stamps is not at all in proportion,"
continued Mr. Bacon, who is executive
chairman of the War Savings stamp
War Savings and Thrift stamps, ac-
cording to Mr. Bacon, have been most
popular in other universities and col-
"If the student would pay his li-
brary fees, take his change in Thrift
and War Savings stamps," said the
chairman, "ewe would not have to is-
sue such discouraging information as
menced suit in the circuit court yes-
terday for divorce. Mrs. Szpack de-
nies the allegations in her husband's
complaint, and has filed a cross bill
alleging cruel and abusive treatment.
She also asks for alimony.
As a result of the resignation of
former City Engineer Manly Osgood,
Assistant City Engineer George H.
Sandenburg will take charge of the
engineer's office until a successor is
chosen. Fifty men gave Mr. Osgood
a farewell banquet and testimonial at
the Y. M. C. A. Wednesday night.
Members of the common council, city
officers, members of the local Engin-
eers' club, and representatives of the
University were present at the fare-
well banquet. Mr. Osgood left for
Bristol, Pa., where he is to be engaged
pin the construction of new govern-
ment shipyards at that place.

Committee Working Hard
"The committe in charge of this
work of selling this insurancfle against
kaiserism, is putting forth every effort
at publication and promotion of the;
minature bond. It is the duty of the
student who h1as a Liberty bond to
make that bond safe by helping with
his small coin, which easily slips
away with nothing to show for it"
The committee report that students
have asked what the "Stickem-Lick-
em" banner across State street means.
Another committeeman declared that
ignorance of this sort was nothing
short of criminal. "Because," he said,
"I venture to say that that student or
students as the case happened, did not
know what the war or the wheatless
days and the rest are all about."

manner to be explained by alienists'

The local draft board expects to
send 25 men to San Antonio, Texas, to-
night to enter the aviation service as
skilled mechanics. These are men
who have been drafted, but have vol-
unteered their services in special work
before their -number has been called.
Work has begun on the cleaning of
the apparatus in the city recreation
park for the coming season. The park,
equipment will be placed in the usual
places as soon as the weather permits.
it is thought that the equipment of the
bathing beach will be improved. Al-
though last summer was unusually
cold, the demands made upon it prov-
ed that it is far from being adequate.
The accompanying cut shows the new building of the Ann Arbor Dairy Co., work on
the construction of which began on the sixth. This new milk distributing plant is being
made after the lay-out of Mr. Paul Roggeband, a graduate of one of the famous Nether-
land dairy schools. From the time of his graduation until about six years ago, Mr.
Roggeband spent his whole life working for the Dutch government in various capacities
in its Dairy division so that he has had many years of wide experience in the greatest
dairy country in the world. By following his suggestions the company expects to have
the highest degree of efficiency and cleanliness in its plant and besides one of the show
places of the country.
The arrangement of the various rooms and the machinery is such that the milk in
going through the various processes moves forward in orderly progress and the em-
ployes make no unnecessary steps.
Much new machinery has been ordered. A new can washer and sterlizer will relieve
the farmer's wife of the drudgery of caring for the returned cans; a nice machine will
produce the ice for keeping the milk in the best shape on the delivery wagons; the latest
type of pasteurizer and holder, white-enamelled inside and out with automatic valves,
will insure a hitherto unequalled quality of pasteurized milk and cream.
All working rooms will have either cement- or terazza floors while the wainscoating
will be of white enamelled tile or face brick. A sales room in white enamel will appeal
to the fastidious. A laboratory for testing milk and cream is a feature. In short it is
planned to make this plant an ideal one for handling milk products.
In order to have the most complete co-operation on the part of consumers and pro-
ducers the Company offers for sale to the citizens of Ann Arbor the unsold portion of its
stock. Only one kind of stock is issued and it has a par value of $100.00 per share. For
