ENLISTED UNITS TO BE
FORMED IN COLLEGES
MEMBERS SUBJECT TO CALL IN-
TO ACTIVE SERVICE IF
Washington, May 14.-1t will be pos-
sible for every educational institution
of college grade in Michigan to main-
tain a military training unit on and
after the beginning of the school year
next fall, according to an announce-
ment issued by Secretary Baker.
Enlistments in these units will be
purely voluntary, and will make the
student a member of the United States
army, liable to active duty at the call
of the President. It will be the policy
not to call members of these units to
active duty until they have reached the
age of 21, unless urgent necessity com-
pels an earlier call. Young men over
the age of 18 who are attending col-
lege, will be encouraged to enlist, how-
ever, in anticipation of such a need.
Every institution of college grade
which enrolls for this instruction 100
or more able-bodied students over the
age of 18, will be provided with mil-
itary equipment under officers and
non-commissioned officers of the army.
College Depletion Feared
The new ;plan is for the purpose of
developing as large a military asset
as possible from the young men in the
colleges, and to prevent unnecessary
and wasteful depletion of the colleges
through indiscrimate volunteering, by
offering to the student a definite and
immediate military status.
Letters have been sent to the presi-
dents of all the colleges in the coun-
try requesting them to bring this new
plan to the attention of the students.
This plan was worked out after sever-
al college presidents had called the
attention of President Wilson and Sec-
retary Baker to the fact that stu-
dents under the draft age are enlist-
ing in large numbers at the present
time. Indications are that at the be-
ginning of the new school year the
college attendance will be greatly re-
duced unless something can be done
to encourage young men, by giving
them a definite military status immed-
COAL DEALERS SLOW
- IN FILLING ORDERS
Philadelphia, May 14.- Millions of
consumers throughout the country are
experiencing delay in the filling of or-
ders they placed for anthracite coal
since spring opened. This, in spite of
the fact that the production now is the
greatest in the history of the country.
A circular issued by the anthracite
committee of the United States fuel
administration explains the situation.
"Many complaints are being receiv-
ed from state administrators that buy-
ers of anthracite coal cannot obtain
any satisfactory information relative
to their supply from parties with
whom they normally conduct their
"One of the producing companies is
answering inquiries as follows: 'To
secure the most equitable distribu-
tion of anthracite coal and to provide
that greatest satisfaction during the
coming year, it has been arranged by
the anthracite committee that the deal-
ers shall secure their coal from the
sources of supplies that furnished it
during the coal year of 1916-17. There-
fore, if you will take the matter up
with the company which supplied you
in that period you will be given every
"The foregoing reply answvers this
question satisfactorily and, if you
agree, we would be pleased to have
you make replies along-the same line."
That the big work of co-ordinating
the distribution of anthracite may be
handled with the best system and dis-
patch, the anthracite committee has
asked that all local fuel adminis-
trators take up any question as to de-
liveries through their respective state
fuel administrators instead of deal-
ing direct with producing companies.

NEW U-BOAT SERIES
Washington, May 13.-Realizing that
America and the Allies have gained a!
mastery over the present fight of sub-
marines, Germany now is planning a
n w series of big U-boat cruisers with!
which she hopes to again assume the
advantage in her unrestricted under-
The announcement of the new Ger-
man scheme is made by French Minis-
ter of marine Laygues -in a'h interview.
It is understood that the new subma-
irnes will be heavily armed and will
be especially designed to meet the
manace of torpedo boat destroyers.
Just how effective has been the war
against the U-boats is shown by
figures on the destruction of Allied
ships given to the naval committee of
the French chamber of deputies Sat-
urday. They reveal that sinkings of
merchantmen have fallen off to a point
where new construction is exceeding
the destruction, even now before ship-
building yards are in full swing.
