GERMAN PROJECTILE STRIKES
MATERNITY WARD KILLING
MOTHERS
Paris, April 12..- (Correspondence
of the Associated Press.)-The Germana
long distance shell which struck a
maternity hospital yesterday, killingt
mothers by the side of their infantsl
sent a shudder of horror through1
Paris which, since the hecatomb of
Good Friday, thought it had become
impervious to such an emotion. It
also created confusion among the sur-
viving mothers, some of whom have
been unable to identify their offspringc

shell of the assassin. .
Explodes in Dormitory
The projectile exploded in a dormit-
ory containing 20 beds, killing twol
mothers and one baby, wounding
many others and completely wreck-1
ing the room. Through the cloud of1
dust and dirt, nurses and attendants
rushed in and carried the wounded
and women who were ill to another.
room, returning immediately/ for the
infants. One baby had been thrown
out of its cradle 10 feet away but was]
quite unhurt. The babies wer'e carried!
and deposited pell-mell on beds in a
room quickly prepared to receive the
patients so violently ejected by the+
German gun.
Mothers Unable to Recognize Infants
After somie order had been restor-
ed it was found that six mothers were
unable to decide which was their own
among the six infants. They had all
been born on the same day and in the
hustle and bustle of removing the in-
fants from one room to the other the
identifying tags, had become detach-
ed.,.
Rough Riders Now
Speed On Campus
If a person should happen to be
standing at the main entrance of Fer-
ry Field about 4:20 o'clock in the af-
ternoon, he might experience a slight
shock of surprise as five clouds of dust
blew over the crest of the hill and
skimmed on toward him, emit'ting a
noise similar, to that of a machine gun.
Finally he might discern, through the
camouflage of dust and grease, at-
tempting to preserve their equilibri-
um, the indistinct forms of a number
of human beings astride their two-
wheeled mounts. The throbbing
squadron speeds up to the gates, and
with varying degrees of luck, quite of-
ten manages to negotiate the tortu-
ous passage.
This is the motorcycle corps of the
R. 0. T. C. Its duties would be rather
hard to explain to the observer since
its members are a little hazy, possib-
ly due to their dusty existence, on this
same subject.
When not frightening the pedes-
trians on the streets, the intrepid rid-
ers are on hand to execute the orders
given by an officer, such as breaking
up a dental clinic, to secure some val-
uable members of the band, or dash-
ing in and out among the drilling
bodies of cadets to deliver a message
to some perspiring faculty officer.
LITTLE 'DAMAGE CAUSED BY
THURSDAY NIGHT'S WINDS
Slight winds, as reported by the ob-
servatory, caused little damage in the
city Thursday night.
The only damage done by the storm
was the smashing of a window on
Washington street, and the removal
of a church steeple on State street.
The street commission of Ann Arbor
reported yesterday that slight dam-

age was done to the streets, and that
practically nothing would have to be
done for the improvement of their
condition.

BEGIN SMUGGLING SUGAR
T ERN ATTENTION TO ARTICLE
ON U. S.. EMBARGO
LIST
El Paso, Tex., May 10.-Gun run-
ners, ammunition smugglers, "bootleg-
gers," and other border law break-
ers who thrive upon the illicit traffic
between countries characteristic of all
borders, have turned their attention
to smuggling sugar into Mexico.
Sugar on Embargo List
Sugar is on the American embargo
list for the period of the war. So is
lard and also flour and butter and
other foodstuffs. But sugar is the most
popular commodity with the smug-
glers. It is easy to carry across, does
not spoil and can always be disposed
of at a high price once it is over the
border. The smugglers match their
wits against those of the government's
keenest secret service men, taking
their winnings in American gold and
their losses in the federal peniten-

Mr. Groves requests that all retail-
ers handling sugar call at the bakery
of Fred Heusel, assistant food admin-
istrator, on East Huron -street, to ob-
tain the necessary blanks for furnish-
ing their customers.
All blanks when filled will be filed
at Lansing. In case any one attempts
to obtain more sugar than is allotted
them for this purpose, the amount will
be detected in short order.
Sugar for unusual purposes -will be
obtainable the same as now, but an
additional supply to the canning and
preserving can be obtained only by
curtailing the amount used in cook-
ing and on the table, and diverting
it to the work'of preserving.

tiaries.
Women Smugglers
Although bustles went out of style
many years ago the wearing of them
has been revived by the sugar smug-
glers. The Mexican women of ample
girth wear the rude canvas bustles
more for revenue than for style. Con-
cealed in the pockets ,of their bustles
are pounds and pounds of sugar.
Mexican women confederates of the
smugglers fasten these cumbersome
affairs about their waists under their
dress skirts and walk or ride across
the international bridge, until some
curious inspector discovers the ruse
and stops the practice by placing the
smuggler in jail.
Use Kerosene and Milk Cans
Kerosene cans are converted into
sugar receptacles by having the top
cut off, a false bottom made to contain
a pint or less of kerosene and the re-
mainder of the space in the can filled
with sugar, Ten gallon milk cans have
a milk container in the center with
sugar packed around it in the remaind-
er of the space. Three of these cans
were discovered with 100 pounds of
sugar in each.
Petticoats with pockets sewed to
them, waists padded with sugar and
extra size stockings filled with sugar
are used by the smugglers and their
confederates.
JEWISH FOLK SONG MASTER
TO ARRIVE HERE TONIGT
Great Interest Shown In Elizabeth
Gutman's Interpretations of
Yiddish Songs
Elizabeth Gutman, the singer of
Jewish and Russian folk songs who
is to appear at the Menorah concert
tomorrow night, is expected here
either tonight' or tomorrow morning.
Miss tutman will be in the Martha
Cook dormitory during her stay in
Ann Arbor. She will be entertained
at dinner by the Zeta Beta Tau frater-
nity tomorrow.
Metropolitan newspapers are how-
ing a great interest in Miss Gutman's
tour of the western universities, and
in her work as a singer of folk songs
in general. She has delved deeply
into the original sources of the Rus-
sian and Jewish music in an effort to
present to the public the peculiar
spirit of these peoples.
In a criticism of one of the recitals
by the singer, .W J. Henderson of the
New York Suns, says:
"The recital was most interesting
and enjoyable not only by reason of
the songs themselves, but because Miss
Gutman disclosed an art of real value.
Her fine insight into the nature of her
folk songs and her skill in the em-
ployment of intimate details of inter-
pretation sufficed to give solid pleas-
ure.
"The singer revealed abundant tem-
perament, influential pathos in the
tenderer lyrics and. plentiful archness
and humor in the songs calling for
these qualities."
Admission to this event will be free
in order to introduce to the students
and general public a master of songs
that have hitherto been practically
unknown to msic loving audiences.
