NEW MAILING SYSTEM SENDS
ABUNDANCE OF MAGAZINES
Washington, March 12.-Five hund-
red and fifty thousand books are es-
timated to have been sent to the
soldiers' libraries since the war libra-
ry service of the American Library'
association started its first campaign
according to a bulletin issued from
The quality of these books is good.
Very few people have taken the op-
portunity to contribute old volumes
in bad condition and when such books
were given they were thrown away
by the librarians who received them.
Magazines were contributed in great
abundance. Many of these were to old
to be used, but even those that re-
mained were enough to satisfy the
Enjoy Foreign Publications.
The plan of sending magazines to
the men in service by placing a one-
cent stamp'upon them has been found
very popular, and camps were flooded
with this sort of mail. That the men
use these books and periodicals is ev-
ident from the librarians at various
camps. At Camp Sherman, there is
a large number of Syrians scattered
among the regiments. One of these
men happened to find a Syrian daily
published in New York, among the
camp's periodicals. He sat down, and
read it from end to end. Soon the
news spread, and now there is a dele-
agtion of Syrians at the library every
day, awaiting the coming of the paper
of their language.

GOOD EASTER TRADE
That the Easter sales will com-
pare favorably with those of other
years, in spite of the war pressure,
was the consensus of opinion forward-
ed by a number of Ann Arbor business
The relatively high prices and the
tendency towards economy, both due
strictly to the war, wil tend to re-
duce the purchase of luxuries and fin-
eries, one merchant stated, but never-
theless, a good Eatser business will be
enjoyed. Grocers and meat market
proprietors will average nearly the
same as last year, but due to the fol-
lowing of the policy of food conserva-
tion and household economies, a slight
falling off will be the result.
To purchase carefully and shrewdly
seems to be the general practice since
the war but nevertheless the public
demand still exists and sales'in gen-
eral will run close to the average of

The system used by a camp li-
brary is probably equivalent to the .
system used in a city 200,000. In
some camps, there are as many as 250
distributing stations. Besides the
central building there are branches
in the Y. M. C. A., Knights of Colum-
bus, and hospital branches.
These stations are hardly more
than boxes containing 50 or more vol-
umes. The boxes travel from one
station to another, so that every
branch may have all the books on
hand at some time. Book boxes are
designed so that the "honor system"
may bae used to avoid unnecessary
records of exchange of individual vol-
umes. The boxes are placed in com-
pany mess halls or barracks so that
the men can get the books at any
hour of the day.
