I'll give you more credit in this
course for a few brain throbs of your
own than for the most perfect mem-
orizeddictaphone record."
A university community seems al-
ways to be infested with a group of
persons who go around repeating ver-
batim what they have 1eard someone
else say. This is the same class of
student who announces himself a
Democrat or a Republican because his
father was a Democrat or a Republi-
can; who says the war will be over
soon because his history professor
has so prophesied; who memorizes
rather than understands what he
reads; who, in short, is always prop-
ping up his mind with some sort of
a mental crutch borrowed from some-
one else.
A college education is supposed to
teach one to think for himself, not to
acquire the habit of having someone
else think for him.. It is better to
get lower grades and to maintain
freedom of thought and opinion, than
to merit all the courses in the univer-
sity with a mind drugged with other
persons' ideas.-Ohio State Lantern.
The bulk of the German reserves
is located in the Somme rear. If Ber-
lin is "in the Somme rear" then the
kaiser, crown prince and five other
Huns are doubtless a part of those
reserves.
The Hun claims that the naval raid
on Ostend did not bottle up the port,
and availed the British nothing. Yet
it is understood that the vice-admiral
in charge of Ostend has been removed
from command.
Reports say Hindenburg's army is
pausing for breath. Yes, and a good-

STATE FOOD BOARD,
MAKES SUGAR RULE
Lansing, May 11.-The state food
administration announced new sugar
rules for Michigan according to which
manufacturers of non-edible products
will be denied supplies of sugar dur-
ing the two months following May
15 The new ruling also affects those
manufacturers who began business on
or after Janiary, 1918, despite govern-
ment warning to the contrary.
Business Restrictions
Another class of business, composed
of those who started after Nov. 1, 1917,
will be restricted to 50 per cent of
their consumption during the four
mounths of January, February, March,
and April. The food administration
declared it to be absolutely essential
that the rules be strictly adhered to
in order to prevent a sugar famine in
the United States.
The new plan for sugar distribution
allows 100 per cent to preservers and
packers of vegetables, catsup, chili
sauce, fruit, and milk; to manufac-
turers of jam, jelly, and preserves,
to meat packers, ice cream manufac-
turers, to druggists, for medical pur-
poses only, and to manufacturers of
tobacco and. explosives, apple butter,
and glycerine.
80 Per Cent Grant
An eighty per cent consumption of
sugar is -granted the following: manu-
facturers of soda water, confection-
ery, candies, chocolate, soft drinks
and beverages, .ruit syrup and flav-
oring extracts, sweet pickles, chewing
gum, cocoa, wine, cereals, and to soda
water fountains and sellers of soft
drinks.
Distribution of sugar will be con-
ducted on the certificate plan, reports-
being required before such certificates
can be issued. Manufacturers will
be required to show their total sugar
cosumption for the first four months
of 1918.
Women in Service to Wear Uniform
Detroit members of the national
league for women's service are to
adopt a distinctive costume, for the
summer. Differing from the national
uniform of dark blue serge, it will
consist of midnight blue crepe de
chine with white collar and cuffs. A
sailor hat is to be worn.
The costume cannot be worn with
out permission from the local league
headquarters. It will appear for the
first time in next week's patriotic fund
parade.
Dean Cooley Goes to Chicago

WOMAN HOSPITAL INSPECTOR
APPEALS FOR 10,000 NURSES
Washington, May 11.-"We should
have now in this country 10,000 pub-
lic health nurses," said Miss Annie
Goodrich, federal inspector of mili-
tary hospitals and president of the
American Nurses' association, in an
appeal today to the college women of
the country to enter the nursing pro-
fession.
Miss Goodrich asserted that the num-
ber of. nurses required, for work at
the front, in hospitals in this country
and for general public and private
nursing, will increase steadily as the
war goes on. She cited the courses
in nursing established by several col-
leges as offering an opportunity to
educated women to perform patriotic
and useful service for the nation.
