Forty acres of the Edison company'
woods on the west bank of the Huron
river were burned last Sunday by a
fire started by two students. The fire
burnt out all of the undergrowth,
killing many young trees without do-
ing much damage, however, to the
older trees. Two other students say
they saw two persons, whom they later
recognized as students, spread' the
fire through the woods by means of
lighted brush. Later it is said, the
same two rowed to the other side of
the river and started another fire but
it was put out and the two students
were warned against doing it again.
Prof. L. J. Young, who has super-
vision of the Forestry farm and the
Edison company's wooded lands
around Ann Arbor, stated-that the
names of the students who started the
fire are known but will not be made
public until it is decided what action
will be taken against them.
"This is the fourth fire which has
occured in near by wood lots this
spring," said Professor Young, "and
drastic action must be taken to stop
it. The other fires were thought to
have been started accidentally, but
after the discovery in connection with
last Sunday's fire we are suspicious
of the origin of the former ones." )

TO TELL TRUTH IS TO LIE MR.
BACHRACH TELLS JOURNALISTS
"The only way to tell the truth is to
lie," said Mr. A. C. Bachrach, instruc-
tor in ordnance, yesterday in his lec-
ture on "It Never Happened at All"
to students of journalism.
"This brings up the interesting par-
adox that unless a man correctly re-
produces his emotions or his reactions
to an event he is lying just as surely
as if he juggled facts.'
Mr. Bachrach went on to state that
in his estimation the journalist was a
true artist, for it is the function of
the newspaper man to help the aver-
age man to better interpret his ex-
