Prof. Edward R. Turner, of the En-
glish history department, delivered
the first of a series of war lectures at
10 o'clock yesterday, in the auditorium
of the Natural Science building. He
spoke on the events leading up to the
war on the continent from 1870 to
Professor Turner outlined the po-
licy of Germany in the last 30 years,
and showed how her sole aim has been
to dominate other nations. He pre-
sented the policy of Bismark, and in
comparing it with the policy "of Wil-
helm, showed that Bismark had striv-
en for dominance over European pow-
ers, while Wilhelm strives to domi-
nate the entire world. At the end of
the lecture, he had followed the events
leading up to two powerful alliances
in Europe. France, England, and Rus-;
sia were united in the "Great Entente,"
and Germany, Austria,' and Italy unit-
ed in the "Great Alliance," the latter
being the more prepared by far for a
struggle such as at present.
Events concluding this will follow
in the coming lectures, to be held
every Tuesday and Thursday at. 10

The Irish are said to fear the iron

By the time we get our copy of the

Pride Still Goeth
The Robbed-Out-The-Cradle strode
loftily into the Daily office. He bore
important tidings from Lieut. Mullen
to be delivered into no other hand than
that of the Military Newsance. The
Newsance wasn't in sight (which is no
sign that he wasn't there, of course),
and as His Importance hesitated a
decimal of an instant, a brisk busi-
ness bug stepped up and inquired
"Telegram, boy?"

That the sweet tooth is undesirable
in time of war is indicated by a dras-
tic order from the food administration.
Frequenters of soft drink parlors
and candy shops will either have to

Particularly will this be of interest
in Michigan, because of a similar ord-
er some time ago depriving people
of "thirst killers." Without ice cream,
ginger ale, root beer, pop, and candy,
the days may be termed as sweetless.
Candy manufacturers, soda-water
makers, and all others using sugar for
any but essential products, must re-
duce thei'r consumption of sugar
from 20;r to 50 per cent of the
amount used last year, the order
reads. Distribution under a new plan
will be put into effect under a cer-

mands, unless the order is observed.

While the restrictions, brought about
primarily to secure sufficient supplies

quired to produce a greater supply for
