after May 1. There will be no half-
way procedure. If Michigan is to go
dry, it must go dry entirely. Every
effort will be made to enforce the regu-
lations, and all violations of the or-
ders will meet with severe punish-
Prominent Places Close
Among the most prominent places
that will be forced to close against
the sale of liquor, are Larry Damm's
Freddy Haas', Joe Parker's, the Orient,
the Barrel House, the St. James house,
and the Midway House. Every one of
these places have carried with
them joy, troubles, friendships, feuds,
plots, hates, and love and tears and
laughter are both loosed at the com-
ing departure of all these things.
The stone building at Fourth and
Ann streets, commonly known as
Joe Parker's, has for almost ten years
been a famous retreat for many a joy
seeker, and the initial carved table
tops that adorn the four walls have
long been regarded as a work of art.
Owing to the shortage of "drink,"
business was discontinued here Satur-
day night, but is expected that this
will be transformed into a self serve
lunch room. In place of the former
drink served here, it is announced
that they will sell milk and forms of
soft drinks.
Larry Damn's Experiences
"Many congressmen and judges
have I waited on," said Larry Damm
in commenting on the approach of
May 1. From 1890 to 1895 he was
located on Main street where Reule,
Conlin, Fiegel's clothing store is
now in its place. In discussing the
15 years at his establishment on
Washington street, "Larry" said that
he "was the first one in Ann Arbor to
sell imported liquor." He has ex-
perienced no trouble in the last few
days, and says that "things have been
much quieter than he had expected
them to be."
"Everything went fine," said one of
the bartenders at the Orient on Main
street. "We ran out of beer Saturday
night, but have been selling the other
in its place." It is thought that the
bar will be closed before night, be-
cause they are almost "out of the
St. James to Close
The Barrel House, at Ashley and
Washington, is to be transformed into
a farmer's restaurant. It is announc-
ed that the change will take place
immediately. The St. James House
on West Huron and Ashley streets
will close tonight for "good." No
plans have as yet been made for re-1
opening the storeroom. Both places
have reported that everything has
been very "quiet."
"Many have quenched their thirst
here, and others have more than done
it," said Freddy Haas. He has been
in the same place of business for 14
years. The bar was closed Saturday
night, because the place is "clean
dry." "Freddy" said that a soft drink
parlor will be opened here on May
Soft Drink Parlors Planned
Among the remaining saloons in
the city, many expect to open soft
drink parlors, and the others plan to
close up altogether. None will, how-
ever, be so affected as the two hotels,
for according to the men in charge,
they will inevitably suffer the great-
est decrease in patronage.
"Stocking up" has been going on
extensively for the past month, ac-

cording to local dealers. There have
been large quantities of beer and
whiskey stored in cellars in order to
avoid the coming "dry spell." One of
the leading dealers said that, "Every
person that had money has piled up a
supply." Many of the men have been
heard to say that it was impossible for
them to get along without a few drinks
a day.
Eight candidates from this year's
graduating class have applied for ad-
mission to the Vassar training camp
for nurses. The course extends from
June 24 to September 13, to be con-
ducted at Poughkeepsie, N. Y.
The extension of eligibility rules,
opening the course to college women
who have graduated within the last
ten years, is expected to swell the list
of Michigan representatives at the fin-
al registration.
Since physical requirements, college
training, and personal adaptabilities
are given detailed consideration before
acceptance, all further applications
should be sent as soon as possible.

ing the week-end in the city.
Sergeant Lloyd E, Battles, '17L, of

That Ann Arbor will have the strong
indorsement of the government in
making the expenditure for a new
water works system in the city, is
indicated by an investigation last Fri-
day by Lieutenant-Colonel Austin, of
the United States sanitary depart-
ment. The purpose of the investiga-
tion was to provide the government
with an expert opinion upon the ques-
tion whether the city should be per-
mitted to spend $200,000 this year to
bring the Steere farm water into the
After the investigation of the water
situation, Colonel Austin had a confer-
ence with the city clerk, city treas-
urer, maor, city attorney, health offi-
cer, and the water officials of the
city, and conveyed the impression
that his report would strongly uphold
the proposed change.-
ColonelAustin is an alumnus of
the University, and is considered an1
authority in the matter because of
his medical training, and his years of
residence in the city. He practically
admitted that he was in favor of the
project, and that he was opposed to
the proposed filtration plant.
Actual farm experiences with the
Womens' land army of America are
to be presented to University women
by two young farmerettes who served
with the Mt. Kisco unit last year.
Miss Delia Marble and Miss Geer will
speak at 5 o'clock Monday afternoon,
May G, accompanying their talk with
interesting slides. The place will be
announced later.
Announcement is also made by Miss
Alice Evans, physical director, that
350 womlen have been called for to
pick cherries in the northern part of
the southern peninsula. How many of
these the university is to furnish
will be 1nown in a short time. The
demand came through the state bu-
reau of commerce. Miss Evans asks
that women who have registered as
interested in the project should decide
definitely as soon as possible, and re-
port to her.

"The Germans, have an abscess of
the brain," said M. Jean Picard, a
French veteran, Sunday evening at
the Methodist church, who substitu-
ted on the Wesleyan guild program be-
cause of the unexpected illness of Mrs.
J. V. Strauss. "They have been to the
wrong kind of school, the wrong kind
of churches. Churches and school
rooms have had ministers, teachers,
and professors who were slaves of
the government. They became crazy."
Frequent applause marked the de-
scription of the difficulties met by the
French in September, 1914, particu-
larly at the remark, "We stopped
them." TVfention was made of General
Foch, to the extent that victory was
the only aim in view.
"We never question how long the
war is going to last," he said. "We
know how it is going to end, but we
don't know when. The question you

Cleveland, 0., April 29-Paul Cobb,
brother of Ty Cobb, the sensational
Detroit outfielder, and at one time a
big league ball player himself, has en-
listed in the United States marine
corps here and is now on his way to
the marine training camp at Paris
Island, S. C.
Young Cobb was given a trial with
the Detroit club several years ago,
but was turned over to Cleveland,
which club finally turned him over
to the Topeka club of the western
league. His light batting was respon-
sible for his exit from the big tent.
Cobb makes the third ball player of
note to join the marines, Dots Miller,
captain of the St. Louis Cardinals
and Nig Clarke, Cleveland catcher,
being already at Paris Island.
