THEY HAVE ANSWERED
Thirteen hundred Michigan men

Important occurrences in life's daily
round of events three years ago take

are making today.
America has changed much in this
short time. The whole world has
changed. Our own characters have
changed. We have turned from a train
of local thoughts to thoughts which
center about the national and world
These Michigan men have heard the
call to give up individual happiness
for universal happiness. They have
done so without complaint. They are
pioneers who will change the aspect
of the world for all time.

There are few among the most blase
of the students and the faculty of
Michigan who do not feel a thrill of:
loyalty and a deeper responsibility to-
ward their Alma Mater because of
Convocation. It is the only time in
the year that regents, faculty, and stu-
dents assemble together.
Come out for Convocation today.
It is one of your best opportunities
to show your appreciation for what
Michigan has done for you and your
devotion to her as a Michigan man.

An attempt by a German student
enrolled in the engineering college to
reconcile some of the differences be-
tween the United States and Germany
will be printed in the Technic, to ap-
pear late this month. It is entitled,

o the editorial staff said yesterday
that the article is not written in a
controversial spirit, and that it con-
tains nothing to offend even the most

The corduroy trouser has had its
day, and indications are that it will
not be seen on the campus this year.
The upper classes have not had
their assemblies yet, but several mem-
bers gave as their opinion yesterday
that the distinctive "breeches" would
give way before the khaki uniforms
the men will wear in drill classes.
The civil engineering branch of the
Engineering society met in society
rooms Wednesday night and elected

A. Kimberly, '18E, was elected presi-

FORTY GIRLS IN UNIVERSITY
WORK FOR THEIR EDUCATION
The College Girls' employment com-
mittee, who have already placed about
40 girls, desire to announce that there
will be an opportunity for girls to
earn part of their living by doing sew-
ing and mending.
A regular schedule is made out
through Dean Jordan's office, whereby
the different kinds of work are class-
ified. Opportunities open to those who
wish to support themselves while in
college are various. Fifteen girls have
secured places in private families,
where they earn their room and
board, while the number of girls wait-
ing table is approximately 25. In
addition, there are a number of girls
who find employment during free
hours taking care of children or do-

RECEPTION FOR NEW FACULTY
MEMBERS TO BE HELD TONIGHT
A reception to the new members of
the several faculties of the University
will be given by the President and
Regents Friday, Oct. 12 . The changes
in the teaching staff caused by the ab-
sence of the many men who have en-
tered the National service, are so great
this year, that the committee in charge
of the reception may fail to send invit-
ations to all. It is hoped that every
man having the rank of instructor, or
of a higher rank, will be present at
the reception, even though he fails
to receive a formal invitation.
The freshman may be very econ-
omical. Fifty cents for a pot, and
the same amount for a toque.
