feast of reason, and a flow of bowl,

publication seem to favor anti-prohi-
Leld bition tendencies, an editorial states

the sake of humor.

MICHIGAN ALUMNI TO FORM
ASSOCIATION IN FRANCE
Alumni association are to be
established at vital points in
France for the benefit of Michigan
Authorization to organize these as-
sociations was sent to France by Pre-
sident Harry B. Hutchins some months
ago, and the work was launched by
Prof. Charles B. Vibbert at a Michigan
dinner in Paris.
The reception this idea met with
is shown in part by Prof. Vibbert's
own statement, in a letter to Presi-
dent Hutchins. "The idea of alumni
associations for our men, set up at,
vital points where considerable num-
bers are gathered together, seems to
me to be a most happy one, and I con-
gratulate you on taking it up and de-
veloping it so quickly"' He further
states that the first organization is to
be at Dijon, France.

MUCH THROUGH TRAFFIC BE-
TWEEN EAST AND WEST
Washington, April 18.-To relieve
railroads much through traffic be-
tween the east and the west, Director
General McAdoo today ordered the es-
tablishment of a Great Lakes steam-
ship line under the railroad admin-
istration to operate seven ships be-
tween Buffalo, Chicago and Milwaukee.
Other- vessels may be added later.
This action is in line with the Direc-
tor General's policy of hauling heavy
freight by water whenever possible.
The new lake service, to be started
in a week -or-tw, wii-take miich of

Will Not Raise Wheat Price to $2.50
Washington, April 18.-Proposed in-
crease of the government's guaran-
teed price of wheat to $2.50 was de
feated tonight in the house, which re-
jected by a vote of 167 to 98 the senate
admendment to the agricultural ap-
propriation bill making the change.
PLANS FOR WATER
Further action on the plan to secure
the city's water supply from the
Steere farm, approved in a recent el-
ection by the votes of residents of
Ann Arbor. is being held up until the
city council receives permission from
the federal reserve board at Chicago
to float the $200,000 worth of bonds
needed for this purpose. This board
has the right to refuse permission to
float any bonds if it feels that capital
in the country ought not to be diver-
ted to this-use.
Monday, April 29, a special bond'
meeting will be held by the common
council. By that time a reply is ex-
pected to be in their hands and fur-
ther action will be taken. The matter
of voting bonds to pay for the ex-
penses of the undertaking is in the
hands of a special committee compos-
ed of Mayor Ernest W. Wurster, City
Attorney Frank DeVine, and Rudolph
E. Reichert, president of the common
council. 'Later this matter will be
referred to the finance committee who
will determine the nature of the bonds
and the rate of interest they will bear.
The matter will then be laid before
the council for final action.
MEN LEAVING NOW '
MUST TAKE EXAMS
While the resolution of the Board
of Regents printed in yesterday's
Daily in regard to the status of stu-
dents leaving for military or naval
service fixed that status for last year,
it should be understood that at the
present time the status of students
so leaving is determined by the dif-
ferent faculties in accordance with
the following general principle adop-
ted by the Deans of the different
Schools and Colleges at a meeting
held last Novembe'r:
"Credit shall be given to students
withdrawing before the end of the
semester only upon examination and
that all students so withdrawing after
the middle of the semester to enter
the national, military or naval ser-
vice shall be given special examina-
tions in the subject elected for the
semester, and, if their class work and
examinations are satisfactory, shall
be allowed an equitable amount of
credit on the work so covered."
The foregoing is the general rule
which in some of the departments has
been modified somewhat in practice
to meet special conditions.
