"Tower" and "G. R." Engraved on
Barrel; Believed to Be from
Tower of London
"Lay to an' step lively mate, be-
fore. I make the sun shine through
you," said G. R., the possible owner
of the large buccaneer pistol which
is part of a relic collection in the Law
Such a scene, common to pirate
stories, may have happened in priva-
teering days with that old fashioned
gun as witness.
The weapon was presented to the
Law school by Edward S. Rogers, '95.
It was given him by his father. Mr.
Rogers lives in Chicago, and lectures
here every spring on "Law Trade
Marks and Unfair Trade."
From Muzzle to stock-tip, the gun
measures 22 inches. The barrel is
made of eighth-inch steel and has an
inside diameter of three-fourths inch-
es. It weighs about six pounds and
is thought to have been cut down
from one of the old muskets in the
Tower of London. "Tower" is en-
gra ved on the barrel as well as the
initials, "G. R."
LIFE PRESERVERS DISAPPEAR
FROIK RAWS OF HURON RIVER
Suggested That Telephones Be Placed
Along the Shore; Will De-
Life preservers which the Student
council placed at short intervals along
the Huron river have disappeared, one
by one, until only a few remain. Vis-
itors have taken them as souvenirs
and others have been thrown into the
river and lost.
It has been'suggested by one of the
boat owners who was near when the
last drowning took place that a tele-
phone line should be strung along the
Huron. At short spaces, telephones
may be placed. This, it has been
argued, would have prevented several
fatalities along the Huron.

LOCAL POSTOFFICE IS MADE
COUNTY SUPERVISING STATION
Ann Arbor to Send Out Stamps and
Supplies Formerly Issued
Ann Arbor's postoffice has been des-
ignated as supervising office of
Washtenaw county by Postmaster-
General Burleson. With the excep-
tion of Ypsilanti and Chelsea, which
are second class offices and not af-
fected by the law, all postoffices in
the county will be required to send
postal accounts to the local office.
Their stamps and supplies will be is-
sped from here also.
Formerly all offices obtained their
stamps and supplies directly from
Washington. The aim of this law
is to reduce the heavy work at the
hospital. It will also allow closer
supervision to be given to the third
and fourth class offices and will prob-
ably end in making the central ac-
counting officer the supervising post-
master of the county.

There need be no fear of German
air raids on our cost cities, according
to a statement made yesterday by
Prof. Felix W. Pawlowski, head of the
aeronautical department. "No aero-
plane motor can be built which would
endure the trip across the ocean and
back," said the professor. "It is pos-
sible to build a machine to fly across
once, but to ask it to return again
without replacement of parts,that is
too much. Some of them are useless
after a ten-hour run, and could not
be replaced without tearing the engine
down. The problem is too large for
solution, and we need not fear the air
Professor Pawlowski has received
an invitation to assist the government
in aeronautical work, and accepted
under the condition that he does not
have to leave Ann Arbor.
Assembly schedules ate out for
sophomores, juniors and seniors. They
will be held Oct. 18, Nov. 15, Dec. 13,

and May 23. Hours can be learned
from consultation of the bulletin
Folk Singers and Dancers Here Soon
Members of the Women's league are
planning to shedule a second engage-
ment in this city with the Fuller Sis-
ters. The company consists of three
-sisters, the Misses Cynthia, Rosalind,
and Dorothy. British, Irish, and Scotch
folk songs and dances are usually on

Such a condition is not always pos-
sible. A fire at night aided by a high
wind migb destroy all the young trees
in the nursery and travel on until it
burned itself out.
Another source of anxiety to the
forestry department is that students
taking canoe trips along the Huron
river usually neglect to put out their
camp fires. This could result quite
disastrously to the plantings along
that stream. There is no ruling,
against camp fires but it is understood1
that they be extinguished.
That Michigan students put a qui-
etus to the forest fire bug bear by
adopting precautionary measures was
the only solution of the problem ad-
vocated by Instructor Case.
