Ann Arbor women are preparing
themselves to take care of the
threatened labor shortage. Some
of this work has been going
on for the last year under the
supervision of the local Y. W. C. A.,
with the result that 14 girls completed
a course in motor driving last fall.
The girls who have taken this course
spent only their spare time at it, and
have been declared competent to drive
cars, should men be called away from
the work. One girl has already of-
fered her services as a taxi driver,
and was given a trial some time ago.
At present there is no shortage of
taxi drivers, and her services will
not be called on until it will be found
necessary to do so.
Telegraphy Course Successful
The government has requested the
local Y. W. C. A. to open a course in
telegraphy here for girls, who are to
be prepared for emergency. Already
14 girls have been entered in the
course, and it is thought that others
will sign up before the work has pro-
gressed very far. In addition to this,
15 girls are to be instructed in shop
work beginning next week. They
will be taught the rudiments of ma-
chinery, and are expected to become
expert motor drivers. The instruc-
tion in this course will be held in the
evenings, so that it will not interfere
with their daily work. In addition
to this, more than 20 girls are being
instructed in a home nursing course.
These girls will not be sent from the
city, but will tend to the home nurs-
ing and local hygiene work of the

SSOR SANDERS TALKS
SPANISH ART IN LECTURE
Under the auspices of the Classieal
Club, Professor Sanders spoke Tues-
day evening in Memorial hall, on the
Spanish art found in various manu-
scripts, obtained from monasteries in
northern and southern Spain. When
word was brought of an old manu-
script dating from the tenth century,
a Mr., Buchanan received permission
to bring it here to the University that
he might make a special study of the
art and the writings.
All manuscripts written in the
nineth, tenth, and eleventh centuries
contain illustrations, characterized by
a strong tendency toward Moorish art,
depicting in detail the delicate trac-
ing and sculpturing, horseshoe arches
and the graceful columns.
Probably the most distinctive fea-
ture of this crude drawing, is the
manner in which the early artists ad-
here to the details of the biblical writ-
ings found in the book of Revelations.
But the lack of perspective in nearly
all the pictures gives a very ludicrous
effect to the efforts of those men who
would labor for months in putting in
everything that the text contained.

terrorizing process introduced by the
Gearmans, which is daily becoming
more severe has reached the cor-
respondent of the Associated Press
from a,- number of centers where the

Between 450 and 500 men from
Michigan have been rejected or dis-
charged from the army because of
symptoms of tuberculosis, according
to L. H. Cosper, secretary of the Mich-

Cross office in Washington by the
surgeon-general of the army. The
former office then sends the names to
the anti-tuberculosis society of the
state in which the man lives. Mr.
Cosper said that he has gotten into
communication with all of these men
from this state and advised them as to
