"Candidates for degrees, who after
electing military training the first se-
mester, neglected to repeat the elec-
tion the second semester, must peti-
tion the board of administration for
permission to elect the course, if they
wish to receive a degree," said Regis-
trar Arthur G. Hall in regard to the
measures the literary college is tak-
ing to execute war orders No. 49.
Since the Regents have adopted the
war orders, the schools inust abide
by their stipulations, e said. All who
have elected the course must take it
for two years unless they are seniors,
in which case they will be forced to
take it for one year to gain a de-
gree. The authorities have stated that
the undergraduates will be compelled
to comply rigidly with this ruling.
Members of the First regiment, thirdl
battalion, will hold the following con-
tests at 4:15 o'clock this afternoon
under direction of Dr. George A. May
in Waterman gymnasium:
First regiment-Company I, dipping,
tug-of-wa, two-mile cross country
run; company K, two-mile cross
country run, dipping, tug-of-war;
company L, wrestling, .relay racing,
chinning, tug-of-war; company M,
chinning, tug-of-w ar, wrestling, relay
In giving the companies a cross
country run of two miles, Doctor May
intends to prepare the men for ap-
pearance on the indoor track. The
run this afternoon will consist of 20
laps around the indoor track, the men
alternately running and walking. As
soon as the weather . conditions are
favorable a cross country run, with
the entire organization competing, will
be held outdoors.
Ribbons worn by me in the ser-
vice indicate that they have been
through campaigns, under fire, or per-
haps have won a medal for personal
bravery. A small light blue strip con-
taining a white star shows that the
wearer has gained the medal of honor
of the United States. A white and red
strip signifies 'that the wearer has
served in the Philippine insurrection.
A strip of two bands of blue and gray
indicates service in the Civil war. Two
strips of blue divided by yellow means
service in the Spanish-American war.
Red and yellow, blue and yellow, and
red, bordered with blue, shows ser-
vice in the Cuban occupation. The rib-
bon of yellow edged with blue shows

The Revolutionary war was sum-
marized yesterday afternoon by Prof.
A. E. Boak of the history department,
in his lecture before the R. O. T. C.
in Hill auditorium. Professor Boak
analyzed the different campaigns of
the war, emphasizing the difficulties
under which General Washington lab-
ored, due to the system of short time
enlistments then in force.
"Every cadet who has. been enroll-
ed in the R. 0. T. C. must secure his
uniform from the distributing agent
immediately," said the military au-
thorities last night. This applies to
all band men and those who joined
the corps this semester. There is still
a lot of uniforms at the agent's and
they must be issued efore the end
of the week

the exchanges as soon as possible.

"'BE POLITE," IS 1
Washington, March 13.-When you
start out to collect $3,500,000,000, be
polite," is the notice given by the
bureau of internal revenue to every
one of the thousands- of employees
who are aiding in the collection of war}
To this end the bureau is having
printed a manual that will contain
suggestions of value to every large
agency which comes into contact with '
the public. Courtesy and square deal-~
ing are essentials that are demanded'
by- the commissioner of internal rev-
enue, Mr. Daniel C. Roper.
Some of the suggestions in the book'
are: "The government representative
should be courteous at all times, have
a cheery manner, and forget the'
grouch, never, under any circum-
stances losing his temper, and hould
avoid all arguments.
"Never put anything over on the tax'
payer, because that is a kaiser-like#
abuse of authority, and the man who
does it isn't fit to be trusted with au-
thority. Tell the tax payer his rights.
The government wants every cent due
it, and it wants the tax payer to keep
every cent he is entitled to keep.
"A man in the field force should
never lose sight of the fact that ours
s a government of the people, by the
people, and for the people. The peo-
ple with whom we come in contact
constitute this government which em-+
ploys us to serve them."+
ANN ARBOR FALLS BELOW firs 1
SQOTA IN WAR STAMPS DRIVE
Anr Arbor is far below her quota
for Thrift and War Savings' stamps.
It is estimated that the quota for this
city amounts to $474,500, making an
average of approximately $1,500 a day.
The months of February and March
showed some increase but the aver-
age has been about $300 a day. Ac-
cording to these figures, Ann Arbor is
$12,000 below the weekly quota.

Gas Rate Commission Is Appointed
In accordance with an application
for a revision of gas rates by the
Washtenaw Gas company, a commis-
sion has been appointed to consider
the advisability of such a step. The
commission is composed of three men,
one appointed by the gas company,
another by the city, and the third by
the supreme court.
Due to the delay in the appointment
by the supreme court, no action has
as yet been taken, and according to the
general manager of the gas company,
the decision may be withheld for an-

Slovenly salutes and the lack of uni-
formity in equipment and dress have
been brought to the attention of the
government as two outstanding weak-
nesses of the army in a critical report
presented to the war department in
This criticism is especially applic-
able to military conditions on the
campus, owing to the general ignor-
ance in military etiquette of those
comprising the cadet corps. To per-
fect men in the art of war great stress
should be laid upon the importance
of uniform dress and observance of
the salute, which must be executed
with true military bearing and a look
of pride acquired only in the crack
units of the old army, for a salute is
a privilege, not an act of humiliation.
Top sergeants should be especially
careful to see that the fundamentals
of discipline should be carried out to
the letter from the very first, since
-this policy is necessary to enable a
soldier to steel himself on the field of
battle, and neatness of dress is essen-
tial to give the smartness of command
which will prevent lowering of disci-

The withdrawal of eight law stu-
dents to enter the naval auxiliary has
reduced the registration in that school
to about 150. At the beginn-ing of the
first semester there were more. than
200 students in the college, but many
have been called for military service
or have taken up other war work.
Law school officials say that the
rumor of the school's closing next
year has no grounds. One professor
stated, "We will not close the school
because of the small number of stu-
dents, although the fjcnlty may not
be so large next year."
