Exchanges will be made this week
at the clothing agent's, and all cadets
must attend to this matter before Sat-
urday nigt, according to a statement
issued by the military authorities
last night. No uniforms will be ex-
changed after that date.
Cadets who wish to change the size
of their puttees or obtain. another
size, also must see the uniform agent
before Saturday night.

The men voters will still be in a,
substantial majority for several rea-
sons. The first is that the qualify-
ing age for men is 21, or if serving
in the army or navy, 19; while no wo-
man under 30 is admitted on any
ground. In the second place, there
will still be plural voting, and al-
though both men and women are re-
stricted to not more than two votes
each, there will be far more men than
women to qualify as twice-voters.
Plural Voting Still in Force
A woman may have two votes only
if she is a university graduate, in
which case she has a vote in her home
district and also a vote for her uni-
versity candidate. A man may have{
two votes under the same conditions,
but he may also have two votes if he
is a business property owner in an-
other district than his home.
As an illustration, take a family
consisting of husband wife and two
sons, one aged 19 in the army, the
other 23 and a university graduate.
The family' lives in a London sub-
urb and the father is in business in
London. He has a vote in his home'
district, and also one in the district!
where his business is located.. The
wife, not being a university graduate,
has but one vote. The two sons will
each have a vote as residents, and the
elder will have an additional vote in
the university constituency, and one
or both may have a second or alterna-
tive vote on account of the occupa-
tion of business premises outside his
residence district. '
Wives Play Important Part
The wives of twice-voters will be
potent factors of uncertainty on elec-
tion day, for they are permitted to sel-
ect which of their husband's constit-
uencies they will vote in, and they
need not announce this selection be-

The old-fashioned British methods
of electioneering are scarcely touch-
ed by the new law, except that the
American system is adopted of having
all elections throughout the country;
on the same day. Proxy voting is al-
lpwed in the case of persons neces-
sarily absent from their constituency
on election day. It is noticeable that
while a woman must be 30 to vote
herself, a girl of 21 may be a proxy
voter for an absent male voter of 19.
As a check on bogus and freak can-
didates: every candidate must deposit
$750, which is forfeited to the govern-
ment if he does not receive an eighth
of the votes polled.

"Concrete ships are likely to prove
the real solution, if successful, to the
shipping problem which now faces
the United States," said Prof. Edward
M. Bragg of the engineering college,
yesterday afternoon in referring to the

Candies Make An

4,500 ton concrete ship
launched last Thursday at



City, California.
"Although they possess the slight
disadvantage of being a little heavier A. P
than steel ships of the same size, con-
crete vessels utilize in their construc-
tion a type of steel for reinforcing
which is easily fabricated and install-
ed, thus relieving the strain on steel
mills which are worked beyond cap- Good Lun
acity, producing steel plates for the 1
steel 'types of vessels.
"Building is slack now and there is, f Chinese and
consequently, plenty of concrete for'
there construction. Vessels of con-
crete can be built with very little
skilled labor in comparison with steel
ships, which demand large gangs of
expert riveters. This will have a T
good effect on the labor supply of the
country. IS;
"If this ship," concluded Professor For L
Bragg, "will stand up on a stormy .
voyage without showing any signs of
cracking, it will have demonstratedtch-
the efficiency of the concrete vessel
for all time."
