Lancaster, Pa., March 22.-Sergeant
(audlee, of the leoal United States
marine corps recruiting station, is
still suffering from the shock he ex-
perienced recently, when Oliver F,
Shields, of Marietta, Ohio, ambled
into his office and set down a big
package of dynamite and a battery to
discharge it. "Mornin', sarge," he
said casually. "How's biz in the mar-
ne corps?"
Gandee realized that this was no
time nor place for discussing recruit-
ing business so he hastily backed the
Mariettiah into a corner and made
preparations for a hasty get-away.
"Say, can the rough stuff," cried
Shields. "I'm not a German spy.
That's dynamite for a plant at home
where I work. I came here to enlist."
Then Sergeant Gandee and Oliver
Shields sat down and talked "busi-
ness," the result of which later found
Shields on his war to Paris Island,
S. C., to train as a member of the mar-
ine corps.

As a'result of the delay of definite ac-
tion regarding the purcnase of the New-
ton Haggerty Ladder company for an
airplane factory, F. H. Lewis, of the
Lewis Spring and A el company at
Chelsea, announced yosterday that he
had already procurred a site for a
factory in Jackson.
The $2,000,000 contract for air-
planes with the government called for
their immediate construction, and, ac-
cording to Mr. Lewis, it was imper-
ative that he find a place at once for
manufacturing them. He said that
there were already 50 men at work at
the new plant. Both factories are
now large enough to take care of the
immediate needs.
However, in order that the ,proposed
purchase of the Newton Haggerty Lad-
der company be carried out, Mr. Lew-
is leaves today to consult the govern-
ment, officials at Washington, in the
hope of procuring government orders
that will necessitate a factory in Ann
Arbor. Mr. Charles Brooks, chair-
man of the finance committee of the
Merchants' Credit association f o r
raising money for the deal, said vo:3-
terday, after a talk with Mr. Lewis,
that there were favorable prospects
for enlarging the government orders
for airplanes. He declared he was
very hopeful that the proposed plan,
would be carried out.

No. 49," said Lieut. George C. Mullen
yesterday afternoon, regarding seem-
ing inconsistencies of articles pub-
lished during the past two days.
The order under which the R. O.
T. C. is organized specifies what the
cadet and the company officers may
wear. When a man has been pro-
moted to second lieutenant he may
wear leather puttees, but cannot wear
the gold bar such as officers of equal
rank in the .regulai and national ar-
mies wear. A shoulder decoration of
a disk containing the letters U. S.
R. O. T. C. is substituted in this case.
For a first lieutenant two disks are
worn. Variations of the number and'
shape of these emblems are worn by
other officers of the R. O. T. C.
"The R. O. T. C. men are not rated
at all in comparison with soldiers in
the regular army and privates in the
officers' training camps such as is be-l
ing conducted at Camp Custer," ad-
ded Lieut. Mullen. "It would be like
comparing a high school boy and a
college student."
Spring seems to be a stimulant for
