WHAT'S GOING ON
Recent text books in such subjects
as gas engines, automobiles, tele-
graphy, wireless telegraphy, carpentry.
and blacksmithing are needed by the
Library in order that the army me-
chanics in training here may be sup-
plied with the books they need All
books should be left at the general
library or any of its branches.
Although the University library
and the branch in the Engineering
building are at present open to the
mechanics, the number of text books
available is limited, and it is now
planned to give the men a supply for
their own use.-
"The books must be recent to be of
any value," says W. W. Bishop, Uni-
versity librarian. "Magazines have
been furnished by the Y. M. C. A. and
Rotary club of the city; the Library
must furnish the men with books. A
number of books may be sent from
Washington soon, but the mechanics
will want more.
"Engineering students especially
should bring their old text books to
the Library. It may be that some stu-
dents will be leaving to enter mili-
tary service. Those men will have no
need for their books, and would do a
great service by leaving them for the

OF CHURCH CHOIRS
"The church choir is the most won-
derful musical organization in Amer-
ica," says Paul Althouse, the Ameri-
can tenor who sings in the "Beati-
tudes" at the Thursday concert of the
May Festival. He has been a singer
since he was six years old, and attri-
butes all of his present success to
his early church singing.
At the age of ten, he was soprano
soloist in the largest church in Read-
ing, Pa. After specializing in chemis-
try at Bucknell college, and working
for a time in the chemical laboratory
of the Reading iron works, he 'went to
New York to cultivate his voice. Six
months after his arrival, totally un-
known and without stage or profes-
sional experience, he was engaged to
sing at the Metropolitan opera house,
the first American tenor without Euro-
pean experience who ever sang lead-
iag roles at that famous institution.
BATTLE SCARRED DOLL
IN CAMPAIGN FOR
St. Catherine, Ont., May 11.-Lieut-
enant Jack O'Brien has brought a
battle scarred doll from shell-torn
France to freedom, although the doll's
seven year old "mamma" lies in a
roughly made grave,'a victims of Ger-
man ruthlessness. The lieutenant
who is on leave from the French for-
eign legion to do recruiting service
in Canada, is using the doll in his cam-
paigin for new soldiers.
"This doll," says the veteran of
many battles, "was handed to me one
day in France by a little brown-eyed,
curly-haired girl while the Germans
were sweeping toward the village in
which the child lived.
"'I want you to to take my doll to
freedom,' she said as her baby arms
tenderly extended this ragged little
sawdust doll to me.
"By terrific fighting the Germans
drove our forces from the village.
Later when we counter-attacked and
regained the town, it was a scene of
desolation, the bodies of soldiers and
civilian filling the streets.
"Among ^the dead was the little doll-
mother who wanted her 'baby' to have
the freedom of which she had been
"I buried her in the village from
which the Germans had been unable

Great Britain failed to keep up her
average in shipbuilding for the month
of April, as compared with the out-
put in March which was about 50,000
tons more. However England is not
falling down in her manufacture of
vessels so necessary for her suc-
cess in the war, because the figures do
not take into consideration the great
number of merchant vessels with
which the shipyards and drydocks
have been congested, due to the rav-
ages of the U-boats and the mines.
Work on the damaged ships must be
completed before construction on the
new ones is started, that the amount of
importation may not be diminished.
In the month of April, 111,533 tons
of shipping were completed in the
yards of the United Kingdom and en-
tered for service, compared with 161,-
674 of the preceding month, according
to a statement issued by the admiral-
ity. The total for the year which end-
ed April 30 was 1,297,337 tons, while
the amount of shipping completed in
allied and neutral countries in the
first quarter of 1918 was 544,327 tons.
BRINGS DOWN SIX GERMAN
PLANES IN ONE DAY'S PATROL
At the present time, it is somewhat
doubtful whether the Michigan Boat
Club will continue to hold its annual
regatta. All the men, who had charge
of the club's affairs last year, have en-
listed in the various branches of the
service. Bud Knowlson who has held
the position of commodore, has just-left
to enlist in the British tank service,
and Lynn Glover, vice-commodore, is
now in the navy. The responsibility
of the organization rests at present on
the shoulders of a very few men, and
the holding of a regatta must be de-
termined by them.
Up to within a few years ago, the
Michigan Union acted as a supervi-
sory board in all financial matters of
the club, which eventually led to
some difficulty over the amount of the
bills charged in the name of the
Union. It seemed to be the custom of
some of the members to go all over
town, charging up various articles.
This cost gradually increased, until
the Union was compelled to put a
stop to the careless way in which the
club conducted its financial matters,
which caused a break between the
two organizations. At the present
they are entirely independent of each
Prof. aeckel Failing in Health
Amsterdam, May 11.-Professor
Ernest Haeckel, the great German ex-
ponent of the Darwinian theory, is
reported by the German newspapers
to be in failing health. On his 84th
birthday, he sent out to his friends
an engraved birthday card, bidding
them all farewell, and declaring that
he expected to die before next winter.
IIis valedictory expresses the hope
that "soon after the end of his mad,
culture-destroying war, our longed-
for German peace will be firmly estab-
lished on a scientific basis.
Detroit Women to Attend War Council
Miss Georgia Emery, of Detroit,
will represent the business women of
Michigan at a special meeting of the
Y. M. C. A. national war council this
week in New York city.
The great influx of women into com-
mercial and industrial occupations has
created a situation which calls for
immediate analysis and systematiz-
ing. It is the purpose if this conven-
tion to formulate practical plans for
organization which may be applied
among employed women.
70 Engineers to Join Reserve Corps
Morerthan 70 students will be added
to the rolls of the. Engineers' reserve
corps in the first week of June when
these men become eligible to draft.
Most of the details have been at-
tended to and all that remjains is the
return of the enlistment papers from
the war department, so that the engi-
neers will automatically become mem-
bers of the corps as soon as the new
draft law goes into effect.
In a special patriotic program at
7:30 o'clock tonight the young people
of the German Methodist church, cor-
ner of Jefferson and West 4th Strees,
will unfurl and dedicate a service flag
in honor of four of their number who
are enlisted in the country's service.
An appropriate program of speeches
and songs by the young people is ar-
ranged and the entire service will be
The men in whose honor the service
is held are: Rudolph Wuensch, for-

department at Camp Hancock, Geor-

Paris, May 11.-Six German air-
planes- have been brought down in
one day by Sub-Lieut. Rene Fonck,
the war office announces.
The text of the statement follows:
"Yesterday Lieut. Fonck brought
down six German planes in the course
of two patrols. He downed the first
in two seconds, the third in five min-
utes later, and the other three in the
course of the second patrol.
Lieut. Fonck's achievement has
never been equalled. He is now the
leading French ace. He was credited
unofficially a month ago with hav-
ing shot down 34 German machines.
"Lieut Fonck was a friend of the
late Captain Guynemer. The latter's
slayer, the German Wissemann, was
shot down by Fonck Sept. 30, 1917.
Fonck is but 23 years of age.
