A requisition for supplies for main-

destiny of
d the qual-
f youth, the
nent of .ex-



taining the gallery -range in the base-
ment of Waterman gymnasium was
sent to the Rock Island arsenal, Rock
Island, Ill., by Lieut. George C. Mul-
len yesterday afternoon.
The quartermasters department
have been asked to supply 216,000
Krag gallery bullets, 216,000 primers,
216,000 pasters, 10 sets of Krag re-
loading tools, 5,400 "X" targets, 100
square yards of target cloth, and a
quantity of pyro-cellulose powder.
Pyro-cellulose Proves Superior
By experimental firing of the Krag
rifle in the different charges of pyro-
cellulose powder,. which was taken
from a cartridge made for the Spring-
field rifle, it was found that the be~t
results were obtained in 10 grains
of the pyro-cellulose powder, and a.
90 per cent lead and a 10 per cent
tin bullet. This style of bullet is sim-
ilar in shape to the service bullet
employed in the Krag rifle.
Cadets in the R. 0. T. C. will be
instructed how to fill the cartridges.
Each man taking rifle practice will
learn theddetails of inspecting ammu-
nition and the manner in which the
different ingredients are mixed before
being placed in the cartridges. This
method was formerly used in the old
United States army campaigns when
the ammunition factories failed to
supply the necessary demand.
Preliminary Training
Active work in the gallery range
will commence next week. The cadets
will be given a preliminary training
in sighting and in the mechanism of
the Krag rifle before receiving active
firing practice.-
Workmen have installed the floor
of the range. The lighting system
has also been completed. The slid-
ing target, carriages and benches ' for
the men in the pit will probably be
fiinished today. -


Non-fitting uniforms may be ex-
changed by the cadets at the clothing
agent next Monday. A number of the
cadets have failed. to procure their
uniforms, and they must be issued to-
day, or the men will have to wait until
all the exchanges have been made.
Every cadet in the R. O. T. C. must
start wearing his uniform imme-
diately, stated the military authorities
last night. A government inspector
will arrive in Ann Arbor about April
1 to review the cadet corps and all
the men must be in uniform. The
appearance of the corps as a whole
ought to equal, if not surpass, the
standard of all the other cadet corps
in the country.

cerning absences, and excuses for ob-
sence, are published for the informa-

r The local selective service board
have not received official orders from
the government for a new draft, but
the board members believe that when
the new men are called Ann Arbor
will be called upon for about 40 men,
and that the next quota will prob-
ably be sent to Camp Custer.
The local Civic association will en-
tertain April 12 with a banquet for
the common council, trades assoeia-
tion, Credit association and its own

"Ann Arbor, and in fact the entire
state of Michigan, has been unusually
fortunate in avoiding an epidemic of
infantile paralysis during the past
year. Every precaution is taken by
the state health officials and the
death rate among children is almost
at a minimum," said Health Officer
Wessinger yesterday.
Since 1914 when there were 22
cases of infantile paralysis in Ann
Arbor no cases have been reported to
local health officials.
The Babies' Welfare association of
New York has collected data which
shows a decided decrease in infant
mortality in 1917 for ten of the la-g-
est cities in the east and middle west.
The death rates per thousand in these
cities follow: St. Louis, 79.6; New
.York, 88.8; Boston, 99.06; Cleveland,
100; Detroit, 103.4; Buffalo, 103.6;
Chicago, 106.3; Philadelphia, 111;'
Pittsburgh, 111; Baltimore, 119.26

t cause of physical disability the cadet
will submit an application for excuse.
When submitting this application he
will exhibit to the Adjutant a writ-
ten statement from a physician, den-
tist, or oculist, showing that the ab-
sence was occasioned by consulta-
tion with, or examination by, a phy-
sician, dentist, or oculist, or that par-
ticipation in military drills would pro-
long or prevent the cadet's recovery
from his disability.
In addition to statement above re-
quired, the cadet will certify, on his
honor, that it was impracticable for
him to have such consultation, ex-
amination or treatment at any other
Absences caused by physical dis-
ability, and for which applications for
excuses are properly submitted, will
be wholly excused, whereupon no
,make-up drill will be required.
(b) If absence is caused by other
than physical disability, the cadet, ex-
cepting, in cases of an emergency
character, will submit an application
for excuse to cover the absence be-
fore "assembly" on the day of the ab-
sence. If the cadet, in his application,
shows reasonable cause for his ab-
sence, the application will be ap-
proved. If approved, one hour of
make-up drill will be required. Each
case of this kind will be' considered
on its merits.
(c) If no application for excuse
be submitted, or if an application for
excuse be disapproved, two hours of
make-up drill will be required.
2. In case of tardiness, application
for excuse may be submitted. Because
there are few legitimate excuses for
tardiness, only those applications of
such a nature as to show the tar-
diness to be due to unavoidable causes
which could not possibly be foreseen
or prevented by the cadet, will be ap-
The method of submitting applica-
tions for excuses (or tardiness will
follow the general rules prescribed
for submitting applications for ex-
.cuses for absences..
3. Blank applications for excuses
may be obtained at the Record office,
R. O. T. C.
If application is for excuse because
of absence or tardiness due to phy-
,sical disability, it will be first submit-
ted to the Adjutant, or to the Ser-
geant Major of the cadet's regiment,
who will endorse thereupon whether
or not statement by physician, 'den-
,tist, or oculist was exhibited.
In all other cases, applications will
be deposited in their proper boxes in
the Record office.

that the effects of the condition so
