CONSTRUCTION 'OF TWO FLOORS
TO BE COMPLETED NEXT
SUMMER
A new building to accommodate the
child patients of the Homoeopathic
hospital has begn ordered by the Re-
gents. During the past year the main
hospital has -been housing from 30 to
50 children daily with virtually no
facilities for their treatment.
Plans have been drawn up in the
drafting room of the building and
grounds department for the unit. The
building will be constructed next sum-
mer by that department at a cost of
$35,000. It will be a two story struc-
ture with a basement and attic and
will be located 30 feet east of the
main unit of the hospital with which
it will be connected by an under-
ground passage. The exterior will re-
semble the main building, being of
pressed brick with a tile roof.
Only theffirst and second floors
will be completed next summer owing
to the present high price of materials.
,Each of the two floors will contain a
public ward which will accommodate
50 patients, and three private wards.
Besides these wards there will be
executive offices, examining rooms,
and treatment rooms. When the base-
ment and attic are finislied the latter
will be a storeroom and the former
will quarter the X-ray department.
U.S. SHIP BUILDING
BOOMED BY WAR
"Since our entrance into the war,
we have jumped from the third or
fourth shipbuilding nation to the
greatest ship constructors In the
world," said Prof. H. C. Sadler, Wed-
nesday morning, in his talk on the
value of marine engineering, at the
freshman engineers' assembly.
"Up to the time of the war,,we were
not turning out many ships in com-
pariso with other great nations.
After the beginning of hostilities,
however, German ships weie interned,
British ships were taken over for war
service, and, in consequense, freight
piled up in American ports for lack of
the necessary tonnage to transport it
abroad. Drastic steps were necessary
to relieve the situation. The govern-
ment took those steps'"with the result
that, within a'few months, we will be
building more ships in more shipyards
than any other country has ever pos-
.sessed.
"When the war is over," concluded
Professor Sadler, "we will be inde-
pendent of other nations for our ship-
ping. The government will not let
us drop back into our former helpless
conditions, and it is very likely that the
thousands of merchant ships now un-
der federal control will remain so dur-
ing the period of commercial activity
to follow."

for the subscriptions of the men under
them.
Mortarboard Leads in Women's Drive
The work among the women stu-
dents is much more encouraging.
Their subscriptions for the first day
totalled $1,950, which is a better fig-
ure than that of the men, considering
the percentage of women in the Uni-
versity. The spirit of rivalry existing
in this drive between Motarboard and
Wyvern, women's senior and junior
honorary societies, is believed to con-
tribute a great deal toward the sale
of bonds among th women. Yester-
day's totals showed the Mortarboard
team ahead of the opposing team, hav-
ing reported subscriptions for $1,150,
against $800 for Wyvren. The Mortar-
board subscriptions include one $500
bond.
The women's lieutenants are as fol-
lowes: Mortarboard-Marian Wil-
liams, Constance Winchell, and Valora
Quinlan; Wyvren-Adda Arnold, Doris
McDonald, and Gertrude Gunn.
Heavy Subscription Expected Today
The general attitude of the members
of the campus committee is one of op-
timism. A heavy subscription is ex-
pected in today's reports with a more
prompt response of the volunteers to
their duties as members of the Wash-
tenaw county War Preparedness
board. The sum received yesterday
already showed prospects of a large
sale in that the men's total contain-
ed a $1,000 bond from a student who
bought a $100 bond during the second
Loan drive.
The city campaign closes at noon
today. From all indications there will
be an oversubscription of the bond
quota for the city. At noon yester-
day the committee reported $837,000
subscribed to, $31,000 more being
needed to reach the minimum sum ask-
ed by the government. The county
sales totalled $1,442,450 at the last
report.
In addressing the open- meeting
last night, Roscoe 0. Boistell, '12L,
genieral organizer of the county com-
mittee, said: "We are not after your ap-
plause. What we want at the present
time is your signatures to bond appli-
cations as signs of good faith and
loyalty to the government. If you
mean well, sign your applications to-
night."
Professor Laird declared Germany
to be against the Christ and against
the Bible, saying that the allies were
fighting for the; priciples of Jesus.
He stated that his sympathies were
with those schools and colleges that
were discontinuing the study of Ger-
man. "The study of the German lan-
guage is merely another part of pro-
German propaganda,' he said. "The
teaching of this language is merely
another scheme of the Kaiser's to
ruin the morale of our people through
the public schools. Such means must
be fought with an iron hand. If there
is anything of especial value in the
German language It can be translated
into English. As a war measure,
however, the dropping of German
from Universities curriculum should
be approved of."
U. S. NAVAL RESERVE IN
NEED OF FIFTY MORE MEN
Fifty students are wanted immedi-
ately in the United States naval re-
serves, according to Charles F. Lam-
bert, ex-'19, who returned from De-
troit last night to secure more re-
cruits. The men will take physical
examinations any time during the re-
mainder of the week and the first part
of next week. They will then be in-
ducted immediately into the service

and placed with the other 21 students
already training on patrol boats op-
erating near Detroit.
"Men are wanted who are well quali-.
fied physically, mentally, and mor-
ally," said Charles Lambert last night.
"The navy offers a wonderful oppor-
tunity. It is the highest and best
branch of the. service a man can join."
All students who are interested can
obtain further information by calling
131 up at noon today. After that
time they are-requested to see Robert
Grindley, '21.

Ordnance Man Dies of Lung Diesase
Charles Wood, a student in the ord-
nance course, died during the spring
vacation of empymia, a disease of
the lungs developing from pneumonia
or grippe. It was thought that be-
cause there has been so much grippe
in the University this spring that
more of this disease would result. Dr.
J. A. Wessinger, health officer, said
last night, however, that this disease
developed mostly in places of close
association. There is much of it at
Camp Custer.
ATHLETIC POINTS GIVEN FOR
WOMEN'S WILITARY MARCHING
At the last meeting of the Women's
Athletic association, the - members
voted that one athletic point would
be given to those who were in the elec-
tive military marching class and the
advanced aesthetic dancing class as
a reward for their excellent. work in
the gymnastic demonstration which
was held before the Michigan State
Schoolmasters Club in March. One
honor point will also be given to those
who enter the spring tennis tourna-
ment. Anyone can enter as a contes-
tant in the tournament. Many inex-
perienced players are expected in the
contest.
