Libraries throughout the country
will participate this week in the see-
ond war library campaign to secure
books for the use of men in military
Herbert Putnam, of the library of
congress, is directing the national
campaign. S. H. Rank of the public
library at Grand Rapids, is at the
head of the state movement, and Li-
brarian W, W. Bishop of the Univer-
sity, will assist him.
Ann Arbor, during the first cam-
paign, contributed more than 3,000
volumes, ranking second to Grand
Rapids in the standing of the various
Michigan cities.
Disposal of Books
Books may be taken to the city li-
brary, the University library, or to
any of the branch libraries of the
University. Technical works are need-
ed most, although fiction, French
books, and histories are also request-
ed. Money is not being called for es-
pecially, but any which.is contributed
will be used to buy books. Publishers
have offered technical books to the
service at one-half the list price.
Libraries Established
Thirty-four library buildings were
established as a result of the first
campaign. ' Besides these, numerous
branches have been founded. Arrange-
ments with the government make it
possible for the association to send
50 tons of reading matter to France
each week.
Soldiers' Reading Varied
Reports of the various libraries
show that the soldiers read every var-
iety of books. Fiction works are pop-
ular, but there seems to be a much
greater interest in books on electric-
ity, mechanics, and other technical
subjects. History is also in demand.
About three-fourths of the circulation
in many of the camps is composed of
technical matter. Some of the camps
report that a number of their men are
uneducated, and English primers are
often called for.
Worn-out Books of No Use
Officials have requested that no
old, worn-out volumes be contributed.
These books are immediately discard-
Magazines are not especially need-
ed, although any of recent date will be
accepted. Cantonment mails have
been swamped with periodicals.
Services Donated
Many of the librarians at the camps'
donate their services. The standard
salaries paid are $1,500 per year to
librarians and $900 to their chief as-
sistants. At present there is no sal-
ary in excess of $27,500, charged to
the service and this is for work at
Contributions have been pouring
into the University library lately, ac-
cording to W. W. Bishop, University
librarian. Most of these books will be
sent to Camp Greene, where F. L. D.
Goodrich, former reference librarian
in the University, Is stationed, some
of them will probably be sent to oth-
er camps. Posters will soon be placed
on the bulletin boards of the campus,
and an extra effort will be made to
persuade the students to contribute
their used txt-books.
Work will begin on the new service
station of the Standard Oil company
on the north-east corner of Fifth and
Huron streets early this week, ac-

cording to George Phillips, in charge
of the local branch. The construction
is estimated at $12,000 including the
$6,000 paid for the lot, and is to be
equal to the stations in New York,
Philadelphia, Atlantic City, and other
large cities. Mr. Phillips said yester-
day that the building will be more
efficient than the similar one in De-
The old Parker home, located where
the new building is to be, will be torn
down this week, and it is thought
that the station will be completed be-
fore the first of May. Ann Arbor has
been the largest city in the United
States without a filling station.
Improvements that are not known
in many of the older buildings in the
large cities will feature the construc-
tion that is to be erected in Ann Ar-
bor. There is to be a double drive-
way from both streets, covered with a
tile canopy. One of the newest fea-
tures in the construction of the more
recent buildings has been the ladies'
rest room, and Mr. Phillips said that
this will be one of the outstanding

Washington, March 16.-Postmast-
er General Burleson's proposal, now
before congress, to take over and op-
,erate the national capitol's telephone
system heralds the first venture by
the federal government in municipal
public utilities.
Declaring that service here repre-
sents "grave failures in modern com-
munication," Postmaster General Bur-
leson offers to establish adequate fac-
ilities "and at reasonable rates."
The postmaster general's proposal
comes as the climax of an attempt by
the telephone company to increase its
rates and reduce its service, giving as
reasons, the extraordinary demands
put upon it by the government's war
In his annual reports to congress
the postmaster general has repeatedly
recommended government operation
of interstate telephone and telegraph
lines as part of the postal establish-
anent. Evidently he regarded the time
opportune to propose that if congress
would give authority, the postoffice
department would make a start by
operating the local system on surplus
revenues of the postal service and
without increasing the rates or reduc-
ing pay of employes. Expense of op-
eration, he estimated, can be reduced
easily by one-third under government
control. The entire revenue collect-
ing and accounting system, he said,
"can be practically displaced under
.postal methods and the work reduced
substantially to one of maintenance
and development."
"The use of these great facilities of
communicating by electricity;'" said
Mr. Burleson in a letter to Vice-Presi-
dent Marshall, "is woefully restrict-
ed among the masses of the people by
the necessities of the interest of pri-
vate persons who own and manage
thei. Among the masses of the peo-
ple, even here in Washington, the
,capital of the richest country in the
world, the majority are shown to be
denied this great convenience. Ser-
vice should be provided at reasonable
cost, in-fact at as low cost as efficient
service permits, so that the largest
number possible may use it.
"The conclusion cannot be escaped
that private rate-making is respon-
sible for the out-of-date and inade-
quate telephone service, and for its re-
sulting breakdown from congestion of
traffic in Washington. And the local
company proposes relief only by des-
troying, through higher rates, even
more of the existing traffic of the

Fourteen more students can be ac-
commodated in the afternoon class of
the Michigan School of Telegraphy,
and six more can be enrolled in the
evening class, according to Mr. H. C.
Baumgardner, head of the school.
New resonators have been installed
on the 24 instruments, and the new
omnigraph has been connected. Stu-
dents have been graded according to
their relative ability to receive. Sev-
eral circuits have been wired so that
different sets can be worked by the
same key. This is the most modern
