Members of Washtenaw War Prepar-
edness Board Sworn Into
Preparations Made for Coming Lib-
erty Loan Drive and Sale of
Thrift Stamps
A spirit of seriousness combined
with a grave sense of duty and res-
ponsibility reigned over the Washte-
naw county war preparedness board
yesterday afternoon when the mem-
bers were sworn into the service for
the cause of America in this war by
Hugh E..Van de Walker, of Ypsilanti.
More than 100 men and women repre-
senting every section of the county
were present and signed a pledge of
allegiance at the dinner given at the
city Y. M. C. A., where preparations
for the coming Liberty Loan drive and
for an increased activity in the sale
of thrift and war savings stamps were
entered upon.
The seriousness of the occasion was
summed up by Roscoe 0. Bonisteel,
'12L, who acted as chairman, when he
"This is a time when we should
spend 16 hoursa aay at soie valuable
work and eight hours iti recreation
and rest, instead of the opposite, as
was previously the case. We must
realize that our boys at the front are
spending 24 out of every 24 hours in
the mud of the trenches fighting for
our cause, for the cause of humanity.
We must forget self, it being the duty
pf every one in Washtenaw county
to do a little bit toward helping the
country along in this great struggle.
Every member of this organization
must be ready to give some of his
time towards promoting our cause
at home in order that our boys may
help to insure liberty and freedom
Mr. Evan Essery Speaks
Mr. Evan Essery, county school
commissioner, who has charge of the
boys' working reserve in Washtenaw
county said that just 'as Scipio kept
on repeating "Carthage must be des-
toryed," so must the United States
keep on emphasizing the point that it
must win this war..
Anxious for Victory
"Some of us who have representa-
,tives at the front are especially anx-
ious to see this war won," he said.
"The selective draft has taken 219
,of our boys to the various canton-
,ments, while more than 1,000 volun-
tarily went there to fight for the per-
petuation of our ideals. If we are to
.go by these figures it will be seen
easily where our youth stands in this
conflict. It is for us at home to help
along in this monstrous conflict."
Other Speakers
Among the other speakers at the
banquet were: Horatio J. Abbott,
postmaster of Ann Arbor; Prof. C. T.
Johnston of the engineering college,
chsilrman of the speakers' committee
for the county; Ray Bassett, '13,
chairman of the county publicity com-
mittee; L. L. Forsythe, principal of
the Ann Arbor high school; Frank
Bacon, '02, social director of the Mich-
igan Union; Alfred Rice, representa-
tive of the seventh federal reserve dis-
trict, which includes the state of

Michigan; Mrs. D. L. Quirk of Ypsil-
anti, chairman of the women's coun-
.ty committee fcjr the third liberty
loan; Dr. Kenneth Noble, of Milan;
and other delegates from every town-

The committee appointed by Gover-
nor Albert E. Sleeper to represent
Washtenaw county on the state War
Preparedness board consists ofj
George W. Millen, chairman, Henry
W. Douglas, and William B. Hatch,
all of Ann Arbor.

Two students, Corwin Smith, '19,
and George Williamson, '21, narrowly
escaped drowning yesterday after-
noon when their canoe upset near the
railroad bridge across the Huron riv-
er. They were paddling down stream
when they struck a whirlpool which
sucked the canoe into its eddies and
threw the men into the icy water.
Both were able to swim ashore, al-
though one took cramps.
Immediately upon reaching shoe
they were met by a witness of the ac-
cident who called a taxicab. After
waiting for half an hour for the cab
to appear, another call was put in and
the response came that the roads
were too bad for a car. Meanwhile
the students almost froze.
The accident was caused by the
breaking of the stern paddle and the
extreme narrowness of the canoe,- ac-
cording to one of the students. After
the paddle broke, the canoe was
pitched around in the current, and fin-
ally capsized broadside. Williamson
immediately swam to shore, but Smith
clung to the canoe, weakened by his
plunge itno the cold water. He float-
ed down stream to the ice house, and
then struck out for the shore. He was
in the river 40 minutes before a row-
boat took him to the bank. Neither'
of the students is suffering except
from the shock and exposure.

-Washington, March 16.-Holland on
the eve of her shipping being taken
over by the United States and Great
Britain has given evidence of a read-
iness to make a voluntary agreemet
to that purpose, even agreeing that
the ships shall be sent through the
war zone.
In view of the continued pressure
upon Holland by Germany in opposi-
tion to such a step, officials here were
mystified at the sudden change of the
situation and began to speculate what
arrangements Holland may have made
with Berlin.
The official attitude .here neverthe-
less is that all arrangements have
been made to take over the ships on
Monday, and that the injection of any
new proposals by Holland cannot stay
