there may be keen competition be-

The official word also advises that
"no two girls will be allowed to wear

LARGEST WOODEN SHIP AFLOAT
IS LAUNCHED BY GOVERNMENT
Washington, iApril 1.-"The largest
wooden ship built since Noah's Ark,"
is the claim of the Emergency Fleet
board, concerning the "War Mystery,"
a 5,000 ton steamer recently launched
in a Gulf port.
The vessel is 317 feet long, has a
beam of 49.9 feet, and a moulded depth
of 28.6 feet. It is built of Southern
pine and, was completed five months
after the keel was laid. It was con-
structed under contract for the Cun-
ard line,and is nearing copleton
along with six other wooden vessels
being built in the yard for the Emerg-
ency Fleet corporation.
The "War Mystery" is a, departure'
in wooden shipbuilding, aside from
being the largest vessel of that mate-
rial, inamuch as it is constructed of
much smaller timbers than those call-
ed for by specifications of the standard
Ferris model ship, now being built
.generally for the government. Difficul-
ty has been experienced by Southern
pine lumbermen in obtaining big tim-
bers for the Ferris model, and this has
resulted in some delay in the wooden
shipbuilding program along the Gulf
and Atlantio coasts.
PREACHINGS OF NIETZSCHE
EXPLAINED BY PROF. WENLEY
Prof. Robert M. Wenley addresseU
the Open Forum of Detroit,. Sunday
afternoon, in the McCollister hall, on-
"Nietzsche and the Causes of the War."
Professor Wenley said that Nietz-
sche's preaching of the "Superman" has
been misinterpreted, and that the
causes of the war which are ordinari-
ly thought to be the theory of his
doctrines are wrong. He explained
that Nietzsche's philosophy embodies
the doctrines of two other philoso-
phers, and that his theory has been
taken out of the sphere in which it
belongs. Professor Wenley believes
that the doctrine of the "Superman"'
hasesulted from the prachings of .an
Englishman, and not a German.
After the lecture, Professor Wen-
ley 'answered a number of ques-
tions involving ideas brought forth
in his lecture. The meeting' was
the last of the Open Forum
for this season, and an attempt
was made to raise money to pay the
expenses of the organization.
