Burton F. Browne is in Ann Arbor

The campaign consists of a thor-
ough investigation intosstocks of
groceries, meats, and drugs. All fra-
ternities, sororities, and boarding
houses in the vicinity of the campus
are included in the work of the state
"During these days of war and high
prices," said Mr. Browne, "Our peo-
ple are learning the art of protecting
the dollar, and of seeing that it is
judiciously guided through the pur-
chasing channels of food supplies.
Fancy, beribboned packages and many
other price-elevating ideas are meet-
ing their doom. The citizens of the
state of Michigan are nobly and
patriotically responding to the call for
conservation, which will assist in sus-
taining life, and winning the war."
The corps of investigators here with
Mr. Browne are R. S. Woodruff, How-
cll; Charles Howson, Detroit; C. E.
Swift, Detroit; Henry Dieterle, Dex-

Washington, Oct. 15.-That mothers
and relatives may hear the voices of
beloved ones, who are serving with
the United States marines in France,
a Massachusetts woman has suggested
that blank phonograph records be for-
warded to the boys in the trenches.
"Such records would- prove dear to
every household from which a son is
serving; it means tpat even though
he be killed in battle, his voice can
still be heard by those he held most
dear," writes the woman to marine
corps officials, here, who have taken
the matter under consideration.
French is more popular than Ger-
man at the University of Oregon this

to get a working knowledge of the

comedy success, direct from a run of

the keynote of something new in mu-

from the usual thing offered in this
