Battle Creek, Mich., March 18.-An
unusually successful system of co-
operation between the Michigan State
Board of Health and the Division Sur-

sponsible for excellent conditions at
that camp, according to a report to
Surgeon General .orgastoday by
Lieut. Col.Victor C. Vaughn, H. .,N.
A., upon the latter's return to Wash-

The purpose of this co-operation,
Col. Vaughn reported, has extended to

but had been most especially con-
cerned with venereal diseases. The
legal authorities of the state have giv-

Health board, physicians of the state

From September 1917 to March 1'

Many civilians have been sent to hos-

-COonel Vaughan endorsed the fol-
lowing recommendations for'improve-
ments by Col. Neale M. Wood:
1. Two additional barracks build-
ings and ten two-story ward barracks.
Authority to construct these already
has been received at Camp Custer.
2. Provision for additional bar-
racks space for 75 by providing rad-
lators in corridors now built. These
corridors are enclosed and the radiat-
prs would convert them into addi-
tional barracks with but little cost.
3. That additional screening be

4. An office building for the sup-

It is suggested by the Adjutant that
members of the R. 0. T. C. clip the
various general and special orders
published- fromtime to time in this
column and retain them for personal
reference. In this way they will be
enabled to determine just what ord-
ers have been issued covering any
subject upon which information is de-
sired. "Orders should be studied after
being cut out so that their provis-
ions can be mastered," stated Lieut.'
Losey J. Williams yesterday. "When
the nen are in the service thef will
be required to preserve leir orders,
so that it would be advisable to form

will be placed in front of the back-

otherwise endanger the men in the

soon be used to give the men prelim-

they give instruction to the remaind-

Pictures Snapped of Cadets
Michigan's future officers made a
striking spectacle as they formed in
front of Hill auditorium yesterday
afternoon to be photographed for the
Michiganensian. With rifles at right
shoulder, the men were formed in a
double column of squads along North
University avenue after having been
snapped as individual companies. It
was the first time that so many of
the companies had performed as a
.unit since the uniforms were issued,
and the long unwavering lines of
khaki convinced onlookers as never
before that Michigan is the posessor
.of a real organization of serious men
who are rapidly showing the benefits
of the military training received here.

with the Jewish organizations"of De-

the purpose of which should be to

especially aimed at Americanizing
the Jewish immigrants by giving
special courses in American history,

WOMEN URGED TO REGISTER
FOR NATIONAL WAR DEFENSE
Registration *of University women
commenced yesterday morning in
Barbour gymnasium, and some women
responded to the call. The registrars
,turned out * well, but the number of
women who registered fell somewhat
.below that expected. Registration
will continue all week from 9 to 12
o'clock in the morning and from 3
to 5 o'clock in the afternoon.
While it is purely voluntary, regis-
tration is expected of every Univer-
sity woman. The registration is un-
der the auspices of the Women's
Council of National Defence, .and is
a nation-wide movement. By means
of it, every loyal woman is given the
opportunity to offer to her govern-
lnent whatever service she may be
able to render, and to get' this offer
in such form that it is definitely av-
ailable to the government.
A 100 per cent registration is the
aim at this University, and every wo-
man is urged to come out as soon
as possible. All registrars who have
not yet signed up are requested to do
so at once.
