STATE PUBLICITY DIRECTOR
OUTLINES NATURE OF
WORK
(By W. P. McGuire)
"What are you going to no next
vacation? Already our students are
making their plans. Some of the old-1
er boys have been trying to find out
just how they can get into war work,
for every one wants to do something
to help.
Should Remain in School
Not that they are going to quit school
to join the military. They have read
the statements of President Wilson
and many other war leaders that the
most important thing for them to do
is to finish school-that the United
States already has more men, obtained'
through the draft, than it can equip
and arm, and that the fellow who
sticks to his school until his course
is completed is going to be more va-
luable to his country, in the war and
after it, than the boy who, quitting be-
fore his mind is trained, can be only
a follower, not a leader.
Governmient Plan
' Now the Government has found a
way for the older boys-those 16 and
older-to do war service, to do just
the thing that most needs to be done
this year. It is to enlist in the United
States boys working reserve, to ob-
tain a commission and to wear the
distinctive badge of that division of
our fighting forces.
The boy who does that will serve,
we are sure, as faithfully as he would
serve if he were in the trenches,
struggling through mud, among rats
and the bodies of his fallen comrades
-as faithfully as though he were
afloat on a sea strewn with mines and
hidden submarines, not knowing what
moment he would go down. And by
performing well his enlistment in the
reserve, the boy will be doing his part
as much as any othet fighting man
in the war.
5,000 Farm Workers Leave
One's first thought perhaps would
be that of course the United States,
with the greatest farms in the world,
can do this food-producing job all
right-and so they might, if countless'
thousands of men hadn't gone into the
war from the farms. Every man leav-
ing the farm means the direct loss of
food that would feed large numbers
of men. Some 5,000 farm workers'
have gone into war work from the
farms ,of Michigan alone. There are

Milwaukee, Wis., May 9.-To prove the
loyalty of Wisconsin, and to show the
extent of the state's support of the
war, facts and figures have been com-
piled by John R. Wolf, president of
the Wisconsin City Editors' associa-
tion, and issued in booklet form. Fig-
ures are given to show that Wiscon-
sin has:
The Figures
1. Supplied 45,750 men, 31,060 of
whom were volunteers to the army
and navy.
2. Oversubscribed the three Liber-
ty Loans.
3. Milwaukee oversubscribed Red
Cross allotment by $280,000.
4. Subscribed $1,080,000 to Y. M. C.
A., Milwaukee oversubscribing its al-i
lotment by $200,000.
5. Sent more men to France than
any other state except one.
6. Stands eleventh in list of
states selling largest number of War
Savings and Thrift stamps.
7. Polled a loyalty vote of 313,139.
against the 110,487 polledtby the other
factions.
8. Only two per cent of men of
military age failed to respond to the
draft, while other states as a whole
hand a percentage of eight per cent.
Calls for Justice
Declaring that "Justice demands the
truth be told concerning Wisconsin,"
the booklet asserts that Wisconsin
was the first state in the Union to
file its report of registration on June
5, 1917, four hours earlier than the
District of Columbia.
The state's administration of the
draft disturbed the marriage relation-
ship less than any other state in the
union, the booklet declares, and con-
tinues:
"Our state has shown her sterling
patriotism, her unfaltering .devotion
to a holy cause, by her swift espousal
of every means to speed this crusade
to its high fulfillment.
First to Answer _CaU
"She gave first of her youth, when
the call for men rang out. When the
government summoned the states to
rally in financial support of the war,
Wisconsin took her place in the hon-
or ranks of Those who went 'over the
top' in each campaign. In her vote
at the recent election, Wisconsin just-
ified her lifelong place in the ranks
of the loyal states. Despite the un-
doubted presence of a strong pro-kais-
er element, despite propoganda for
peace and kaiserism, insidiously
spread, as in other states, Wisconsin
kept her unfaltering stride, and re-
fused to be shunted from the position
proudly held since she was born into
the family of the states."

Situation Serious
The papers the other day said that
the only hope is the boys, that un-
less the boys go to the farms this sum-
mer, the women will have to go! Gov-
ernment leaders in Washington have
been saying the same thing. When
responsible men, after careful investi-
gation, talk that way the situation is
serious indeed.

Washington, May 9.-Hope for the
illion bushel wheat crop for which

0 the government is driving today, was
strengthened by the department of
is agriculture crops report forecasting
432,539,000 bushels of winter wheat.
I The secretary of agriculture, in a
statement tonight, said that there was;
every reason to anticipate increased
corn yield.
- Efforts have been made to stimulate
production of spring wheat and re-
ports indicate an increase in the acre-
age of that crop.
Rye production will be a record, the
forecast of the crop being 82,620,000
n bushels, of 20,000,000 bushels more
o than last year's crop.

PLANS

COMPLETED

Plans have already been completed
for the Menorah concert of Jewish
music, to be held next Sunday night
In Sarah\ Caswell Angell hall.
Elizabeth Gutman, a Jewish singer
of American parentage, has grouped
the songs to be presented that night
in relation to their poetic content.
The program is to be made up of a
series of love, wedding, genre, nation-
al, and children's songs, and lullabies.
"The individuality and charm of
Elizabeth Gutman's singing, and the
uniqueness of her program, should
unite in bringing her overwhelming
public recognition", The Philadelphia
Record recently said of her.
Besides appearing for the Univer-
sity of Michigan Menorah society, Miss
Gutman is making a tour, during the
month of May, of the Menorah socie-

"Sea training for the merchant
marine will undoubtedly become one
of the most important phases of mili-
tary training in the future", stated
Mr. E. C. Edsill, one of the druggists
of Ann Arbor. A merchant marine
recruiting station has been opened at
Mr. Edsill's store, 208 South Main=
Street
Fifty thousand men, with or. with,-
out experience, are needed to man the
many new freighters, which have
been placed upon our most important
waterways recently. The men will
be given a free course of instruction,
under the direction of the U. S. Ship-
ping board, at the School of Engi-
neering, 542 South Dearborn street,,
Chicago, Ill. From there they will be
sent' to a training ship, where they:
will :receive the necessary sea train-
ing to fit them for service in the Mer-
chant marine.
Italian Soceety Extends Membership
Il Circolo Dante will extend its or-
ganization next year to include be-
ginning as well as advanced students
of Italian.
"In this way," says Margaret E.
Klein; '18, "we expect to have our
present .circle grow into a large club,
made up of the many students who=
have recently started to study the.
Italian language."

Women Patronize
Local iar Room
Near beer has proven to be a popu-
lar drink in Ann Arbor since the "bone
dry" law went into effect.
Not only have the bar rooms con-
tinued to be a favorite retreat for
the men, but, in Ann Arbor, they are
said to be gaining popularity among
the women. One woman is reported
as having .entered a saloon not far
distant from the. Michigan Central
depot, placing an order for near beer.
Large sales of near beer have aeen
reported by local saloons. The cause
of this is pointed out to be the result
of the curiousity of people to taste
the once disregarded drink. Invaria-
bly, the word "not so bad" have been
expressed after the first trial, and "see
you again" upon leaving. The bar-
tenders have also expressed their op-
timism regarding the change, for they
do not necessarily have to ask custo-
mers what their order it. . The vari-
ety of drinks has been done away with.
