ON WAR GARDENS
Work began yesterday on the land
to be used for children's war gardens,
and it is thought that the ground will1
be in condition for use within three
weeks. The city is- divided into four
sections, and four women are to be
paid $50 each to supervise the work,
and see that everything is carried out
right. This amount is to be paid
them merely to make them feel that
they are under some obligation to the
work, said Mr. Ray Bassett, in charge;
of the work.
Attempts have been made to pro-
cure seed for the children to be dis-
tributed free, but as yet there has
been no definite information regard-
ing the purchase. Last year, accord-
ing to Mr. Bassett, seed was distribut-
ed to the children free, and at the
end of the season some of the small
4 by 8 feet gardens yielded as much
as $5 for the plants prown.
Letters are to be sent out this week
to all the city property holders ask-
ing them to allow all vacant lots to be
transformed into war gardens. In
this way people who are unable to
procure land for garden use, will be
afforded the means of using lands that
the owners do not wish for their own
use. Mr. Bassett said that this does
not only increase the amount of gar-
den supplies, but it also increases the
value of the property on the lots. Last
year this plan proved very success-
ful, and in all there was about 500
acres of such land cultivated in this-
manner. Many people found that the
supply they accumulated from their
gardens lasted throughout the winter.
The plot worked by the police depart-
ment produced 40 bushels of potatoes.

Only 60 per cent of the students
have signed the food conservation
pledge cards being distributed by the
University health service, according
to the report of Miss Sue C. Hamilton,
Many have taken cards but have not
returned them. This is due to neglect
in some cases, but in a few it has been
due to lack of patriotism, it seems.
It is conspicuous that fraternities and
sororities have responded more read-
ily to the request for conservation
volunteers than have those who eat
at boarding houses. The medical
school has returned a bare 15 per cent
of the cards allotted to it, The liter-
ary college has been allowed a score
of 50 per cent, and the engineers are
about 50 per cent. The law school
has not reported.
No reason has been assigned to the
lack of spirit on the part of the stu-
dents. Michigan is the first univer-
sity to take up the food campaign, and
the government officials at Washing-
ton are watching the campaign with
interest, it is reported. If the cam-
paign fails here, it is probable that
other' colleges will not take up the
movement. This would be seriously
detrimental, according to the opinion
of the food administration. The
movement is still being pushed on the
campus so that any who have failed
to sign the cards may yet enroll in the
list of patriots.
STUDENT STARTS PROCEEIINGS

against M. A. C. here two years ago.
Last summer he worked at the Reo

Although he was on his way back
to Lansing from Battle Creek, where
he had been working at the canton-
ment and waiting for his call,'he was
arrested as a deserter by Cornelius,
who was working under Ferguson. It
is alleged that he was not given a
chance to go before his local draft
board for a hearing, but was thrown
into jail and was kept there after his
papers were taken from him.
Harrington claims that in their efforts
to collect $50 for the apprehension of
a deserter from the government, Fer-
guson and Cornelius conspired to the
detriment of his good name. Friends
