CAMP FORSUMMER
STILL UNCERTAIN
Michigan's summer military camp is
still uncertain. Less than 100 men have
signed up for the summer camp, mak-
ing it an unprofitable venture for the
government. The military authorities
will not make further plans for the
camp unless there are at least 200 to
250 men willing to undergo the in-
tensive training.
"Men attending such a summer
camp will receive more benefit during
the seven weeks than one hour a day
in a semester's work in the Univer-
sity," said Lieut. Losey J. Williams in
an interview yesterday afternoon.
"There is no question about the prob-
ability of a number of students going
to war before next fall, and at a sum-
ner training camp, the work is more
beneficial, due to the fact that the
cadets get a real taste of military
life,"

meeting in Petrograd, quickly follow-
ed that of Ensign Krylenko, the Bol-
shevik commander-in-chief.
Oust Bolsheviki
Meanwhile there are reports froin
Russian sources that a movement by
social revolutionists, launched at a
Moscow conference, has as its aim
the ousting of the Bolshevik govern-
ment and the repudiation of the peace
treaty. A large army with Cossack
support is being organized in the Don
district, it is declared.
The setting up of a republic with a
coalition government is proposed.
Roumania Makes Peace
Petrograd has announced the sign-
ing of a peace between Russia and
Roumania. Under its terms, Rou-
mania is to evacuate Besserabia. This
is the Russian province which Rou-

-the Bolsheviki, is reported to have be-
gun looting.,

The Ann Arbor Woman's club and
the local ministers believe Theda
Bara as "Cleopatra" should not appear
before Ann Arbor audiences, and will
do all in their power to prevent it.
At the regular meeting of the Wo-
man's club last week it was- moved to
place the method of opposition in the
hands of the civics department of
which Mrs. Wayne J. Atwell is chair-
man and efforts will be made early in
the next week to stop the production.
The action by the Woman's club is
part of a general movement of the
state federation of women's clubs for
better films.
The Rev. J. M. Wells of the First
Baptist church, chairman of the Ann
Arbor Religious Federation, said yess
terday that the society had discussed
the advisability of better film censor-

Orders have been received from the
navy department establishing a new
section of the naval reserve force in
the University. Provision has been
made for the enlistment of any en-
gineer over the age of 18 years who is
physically qualified regardless of
scholarship. Those enrolled will be
allowed to finish their university
course before being ordered for duty.
L. H. Beach in Charge
Luther- H. Beach, '18E, has been
placed in charge of enlistment of the
force, and will be in Dean W. H. Butts'
waiting room from 2 to 4 o'clock
daily. Men taking marine, mechani-
cal, electrical, and civil engineering
will be eligible for the reserve in the
order named. All who enlist will be
given the rating of seamen, second
class, in the naval reserve, class 4. No
promise of commission is made, but
men will be graded according to their
ability after they are called into ac-
tive service.
Aims to Insure Engineers for Future
The navy wishes to insure its fu-
ture supply of trained engineers. This
is the reason it has established the
new force. Every possible induce-
ment and advantage is offered the stu-
dents in the reserve so that they will
remain in the University until their
courses are completed. Unless there
is some great emergency, the men will
not be called for service until gradu-
ation.
Government Accepts "Liberty Gifts"
Washington, March 9.- Donations
by generous citizens of over payments
in their income taxes will be accept-
able to the government the same as
Liberty Loans and iberty taxes.
Such donations are now classed as
Liberty gifts.
The department of justice declared
it legal for the treasury to keep these
gifts. An epidemic of patriotic dona-
tions similar to that during the Span-
ish war is developing in the land.
Many people, in sending their in-
come taxes early, sent an additional
few dollars explaining that they were
Liberty gifts.

The appointment of P
Harry B. Hutchins of the Un
to represent Washtenaw count
member of the general Libert
committee for the seventh fede
serve district, was announced
day. This district comprises ti
of Illinois, Indiana. Iowa, M
and Wisconsin.
