An interesting letter was received
by Prof. H. E. Riggs of the engineer-
ing department from Arthur L. Oppen-
heimer, '17E, who is in the training
camp at Fort Riley,Kansas. The
letter is as follows:
Fort Riley, Kans., Sept. 26.
Dear Professor Riggs:
Since coming out to the cantonment
job, I've had occasion to see some of
the speediest construction work I ever
saw. What originally was a weed
covered river bottom is now a mass
of frame buildings ready soon to house
about 60,000 men, thus making this the
largest cantonment in the country.
Additions, changes, and new buildings
have made it possible to house far
more than the original 40,000 planned.
In writing this I am taking for
granted that while you must be fam-
iliar with the present cantonment
work you may possibly have not heard
of some of the purely local varia-
At the beginning of the job we were
on what was known as the regular
army cantonment which consisted of
about 500 one-story barracks for the
medical officers' unit, the ambulance
corps, and three regiments of cavalry.
This work was completed in about
eight weeks with an organization con-
sisting of about 1,000 men and using
about 4,000,000 feet of lumber.
The present work was actively start-
ed about the middle of July with a
force of about 1,500 men which grew
rapidly to 10,000 men, a high mark
of three weeks ago. The force which is
now about 5,000 will gradually de-
crease until the work is completed.
So far about 35,000,000 feet of lumber
have been used.
The working day has been 10 hours,
Sunday, eight hours, Saturdays,, five
hours. When lumber came in fast the
men unloading worked until 11 o'clock
at night. Speed has been the watch-
word every minute. Labor has been
divided into units, each unit doing one
class of work. One set of men digs
the post. holes, another builds the
frame work, another puts on siding.
Two hundred teams, 120 motor
trucks, trainloads of materials, 10,-
000 men, $356,000 payroll, 28 paying
booths, a rushing set of garage men
are some of the quantities that exist
here. Foremen and assistants each
have Fords to get over the job in.
(I come under the title of assistant
to the general field superintendent.)
On this .ob I am sort of general
"flunky" for the superintendent, going
over the job on Various missions
usually with orders to other foremen
or often times to start small jobs by
rounding up the required number of
men and getting the material under
way so a foreman can take charge of
it. It's interesting work and allows
men to keep in touch with all of the
TUnusual opportunities have be m
present for the Michigan boys to see;
the actual operation of a big job by
close contact with others of ae Un-
iversity of Michigan in different parts
of the work, office, and field.
The majority of the boys are stilla
here although a few were drafted and
-thers left for other jobs.

URGES BOND SALE
Mrs. 0. H. Clark Says in Appeal, "Our
Country Calls; Let Us
In an urgent appeal, which has been
scattered broadcast throughout the
state, Mrs. O. H. Clark, president of
the Michigan Equal Suffrage associa-
tion, urged every suffragist" in the
state to purchase Liberty bonds. Mrs.
Clark has been appointed by Governor
Sleeper as a member of the auxiliary
committee of the Michigan advisory
Liberty loan distribution committee.
Mrs. Clark says in her appeal:
"Firmly believing that upon the suc-
cess of this second Liberty loan de-
pends the shortening of the war, and
that the shortening of the war by even
one day is of paramount importance to
every wife, mother, and sister of a
man in the service, I again urge each
individual suffragist of Michigan. to
buy as many Liberty bonds as she
"Our country calls. Let us answer."

WHERE CREDIT IS DUE
The Daily takes pleasure this morn-
inig in announcing its upper staff ap-
pointments for the year, as well as
appointments of night editors and re-
These editors, whose names appear
above, are the men and women who
largely control the final appearance
of the paper, and shape its policies.
They have sacrified the pleasures of
many good times in order that the
highest posisble standard paper be
placed in your hands each morning.
From Its very nature, The Daily is
more exacting in its demands than
any other organization on the campus.
When the average student is safely
tucked in bed for the night, these men
and others who show promise of like
calibre are writing, editing, and mak-
ing up news for your inspection and.
These people are to be congratu-
lated for what they have done, are do-
ing, and will continue to do. Theirs
is the credit for what The Michigan
Daily accomplishes this year. We are
ready and willing to extend credit
where it is due.
WE'RE IN WAR. DO YOU KNOW IT?
Do you know that your country is
at war? Do you realize that each day
the sacr'ifices of war are being brought
home to you? Have you paused to
consider that it is only a question of
time before American casualty lists
will be published, and your friends'
names will be included in them?
The government is asking the peo-
ple of this nation to loan them $5,-
000,000,000 for the second Liberty loan.
The University has been asked to con-
tribute $200,000. In three days of can-
vassing Michigan students have sub-
scribed only $16,000. Is this a fair
sample of Michigan spirit? Is this the
spirit of Weston and Weeks and Maul-

Real home-made candy of the most
toothsome varieties will be an addi-
tional feature of the booth Saturday.
A committee under the leadership
of Emily Loman, '19, will conduct the
sale, and since this season's shipment
of flowers is expected to be particu-
larly choice, and since present condi-
tions threaten to make home grown,
confectionary a thing of the past, a
very profitable sale is anticipated.
