FEDERAL AUTHORITIES RAID 1
1,200 AT SUSPICIOUS MEETING
Detroit, May 2.-Twelve hundred
men and women, the majority of
which are said to be members of the
I. W. W., were taken in a raid con-
ducted by federal authorities here late
this afternoon.
The raid was made during a meet-
ing hel in a hall, and is one of a series
conducted here recently, by federal
officials in rounding up suspected
draft parties and persons suspected of
pro-German sympathy.

Michigan students oversubscribed
their Liberty Loan quota by $4,150 late
yesterday afternoon.
By raising $9,300 on the 15th day
of the campus drive, the University
won the three-barred honor flag, which
is to be unfurled on the pole at noon
Saturday, before the. baseball game
with Chicago.
Campus Oversubscription
With the campus subscription
reaching the $193,050 mark, the Un-
iversity quota of $125,000 is now
oversubscribed by $68,050. Only $6,-
950 is needed to reach the $200,000
goal that was set for the campus after
the original quota was oversubscrib-
ed two weeks ago. With two days still
remaining, the- committee feels certain
of reaching the goal, the chances be-
ing in favor of the latter also being
oversubscribed.
liaising of Honor Flag
The oversubscription of the student
quota will be celebrated at noon to-
morrow by the unfurling of the hon-
or flag, which has already been pre-
sented the University committee by
the Washtenaw county War Prepar-
edness board. The ceremonies will be
marked by the presence of the Varsity
band. Plans are being made for the
introduction of other features to be
announced in tomorrow's Daily. Ar-
rangements have also been made to
have the event over with in time for
the students to march with the band

ADDRESSES ADDED
TO CASUALTY LISTS
Washington, May 2.-The war de-
partment will resume publication of
the home address tomorrow of men
reported on the casualty lists from
France. Orders to that effect have
been issued and the lists given out
tomorrow morning will be in the old
form.-
This action means that it has been
determined that any military infor-
mation the enemy might gain from the
lists would not be of sufficient value
to justify the added anxiety among
the relatives of soldiers occasioned
by this suppression of positive identi-
fication.
The department is now said to be
convinced that no information can be
communicated to the enemy by the
publication of the lists.

Washington, May 2.-The question
of wages for seamen on American ves-
sels in Atlantic trade, overseas and
coastwise, which with facts of living
conditions aboard ships, has occupied
the attention of the shipping board
conference here for several days, was
disposed of here today by both sides
agreeing to submit their case to the
shipping board for a decision.
Industrial conscription as a means
of preventing a stoppage of war work
by men quitting their jobs was advo-
cated by J. C. Rolsf, speaking for
pacific coast shippers.
Andrew Furuseth, president of the
international seaman's union said,
that if the industrial conscription was
to be brought about, it should apply
equally to "the Rolsf and Furuseth,
Pershing and his privates, the presi-
dent and his bootblack," while other
union spokemen added, "congress."
