"NATIONAL SERVICE" PAMPHLET
DESCRIBES WAYS OF
SERVING
"National Service" is the title of a
pamphlet issued by the engineering
college which sums up in striking
fashion the opportunities for service
to the country that are open to the
prospective student of engineering.
It lists no less than 10 different
kinds of war activities that were car-
ried on during the present semester,
but some of these will not be open
next year.
First on the list is the officers' re-
serve corps, offering two hours credit
a semester for a period of two or four
years. "On the completion of this
course, the student will be eligible for
commission in the officers' reserve
corps," states the pamphlet.
Enlisted Engineers? Reserve
The enlisted engineers' reserve is
listed as open to students who are
candidates for degrees in engineering
and architecture and are of draft age.
To enter this corps, the student must
be a citizen, or have taken out his
first papers. Scholarship, personal-
ity, physique, and efficiency are men-
tioned as determining the fitness of
candidates.
Naval Reserve
Any student over 18 years of age
may enlist in' the naval reserve force,
for which there are no scholarship
requirements. It is stated that the
student enlisting will not be called
except in the case of "extreme emer-
gency."
Sanitary Engineering
Opportunity to serve the govern-
ment in a special way is offered by
the establishment of an extensive
course in sanitary engineering at the
request of the medical department of
the army. The course is open to sen-
iors in civil and chemical engineer-
ing and also to students of other
schools who have had the necessary
foundation in mathematics, mechan-
ics, and chemistry. All men enlisting
during this year have been appointed
sergeants in the sanitary engineering
corps.
The characteristics of modern guns;
and projectiles and the study of prob-
lem relating to the flight of shells is
a course listed as Mathematics 74.
Radio Communication
Under orders from the chief signal
officer of the army, a course has been7
established in radio communication
and signal work. Men entering this
work may enroll in the signal en-I
listed reserve corps and take up works
with the'signal corps of the army aft-t
er graduation.
Gas-engine practice and navigation
are two other courses in which the1
college student may fit himself for1
service to the country.
From a reading of the "Nationala
Service" pamphlet, it should be evi-3
dent to the prospective college student6
that it is not necessary to stay out ofI
college in order to be of use to thet
nation in time of war.
IL A. C. RECEIVES 500 DRAFTED
MEN FOR TECHNICAL TRAINING
Michigan Agricultural college last
Wednesday received 500 drafted ment
who have been detailed by the wara
department to receive eight weeks ofk
intensive training in auto truck re-r
pair work for'the army, according to1
advices just received here.Thepro-e
gram mapped out for the 500 mechan-
ics is fully as rigorous as that in
force in other branches of the nation-1
al army.e
For eight hours daily they will de-
vote themselves to the study of theI
chassis and engine repair work, ig-
nition and lighting, carburetion, forgeF

and weldings, road troubles and trac-l
tors. Another hour will be given to
setting up exercises, and two hours
to the acquirement of the fundament-l
als of military drill. Instruction off
the men in the technical subjects will
be conducted in the shops and labora-
tories of the college by members oft
the engineering faculty.
As far as M. A. C. itself is concern-I
ed, it is handling the men largely asx
it would ordinary students. The' 500
new arrivals do not fully offset theI
number of male students the collegez
has lost since .hostilities commenced.f

SPIES' TREACHEROUSLY
SILENCE BITISH GUNS
GERMANS WEAR UNIFORMS STOL-
EN FROM DEAD ENGLISH-
MEN
London, May 18. - German spies
'ben a continual source of annoyance
throughout the recent British retire-
ments in France. Many of these
spies have been detected in British
uniforms, presumably stolen from
bodies of"the slain. A British officer
in a letter to the Daily Express, tells
of an encounter with two such spies.
"I had been orderedto take up a
position with the two 'guns of my sec-
tion as our infantry were being forc-
ed back,' 'he says. "I was on a crest
just in front of my guns ready and
waiting to open fire and observe the
rounds, but the specified time had not
arrived.

PORTO RICO SEIZES BONDS DE-
POSITED BY HUN AGENTS
San Juan, Porto Rico, May 18.-Ap-
proximately $100,000 worth of Panama
Canal and Porto Rico bonds deposit-
ed with the treasurer of Porto Rico
by six German insurance companies
formerly doing business in Porto Rico
have been seized by the government
and placed to the credit of the alien
property custodian. -The bonds were
required to guarantee the payment of
risks to Porto Rico policy holders.
Until recently the bulk of the insur-
ance business of the island was writ-
ten by German agents in German com-
panies.
M. B. Spelman, representing A.
Mitchell Palmer, enemy property cus-
todian, who has been in Porto Rico
and the Virgin Islands for the past
hree weeks, has found enemy property
here valued at many hundred thous-
ands of dollars which has either-been
seized or reported to Washington for
seizure.
Should Not Abbreviate Addresses
London, May 18.-The British pos-

Two Signallers
"On the right of me was the road
along which a few minutes before I
had managed to get my guns. It was
packed with infantry, transport, guns,
prisoners and stretcher bearers
struggling along with wounded. Some-
thing or other called my attention to
two signallers striving to lay out a
wire from the road towards my ob-
servation post. I could hear a gibe
made to them, some witticism which
caused a laugh. Then some one else's
guns to the left opened fire. In a few
seconds I picked up the target, a blue-
grey shadow advancing in apparent
silence over the top of a crest 2,000
yards away.
"I gave the order to join in the
chorus of guns. The rounds were
bursting beautifully, and I picked. up
the range quickly and well, but I no-
ticed Boche shells beginning to fall
on and about the road, bursting with
marvellous precision.
Shell Bursts
I glanced behind at my guns, just
as a shell burst 100 yards in rear of
them and another 100 yards in front-
a beautiful "bracket," positively un-
canny, as the guns were In a splen-
did position and certainly could not
be seen.
"I knew what that bracket meant,
and longed to give the take-cover, or-
der to my gunners, but only for one
moment. Our job was to carry on. So
we fired away as rapidly as we could,
for, after all, we do not often have the
luck to shoot at moving masses of
Roches.
Guns Silenced
"A few minutes later I received the
message: "Both guns out of action,
sir." I gazed round with a jerk, and
there below. me, sure enough, both
guns were 'knocked out.
"The Boches had begun another de-
liberate shoot at the other guns, and
I could see at a glance he was some-
how observing his rounds, and cor-
recting them for line and range, and
yet there were no Hun airplanes up
aloft to do it. A marvellous mystery!
I determined to go to my guns and
do my best to get them into action
again, so off I moved, dodging around
the ancient shell-holes of 1916, jump-
ing across old German trenches.
Telephone Buzzer
"I had hardly gone 20 yards when I
heard a buzz quite close, the buzz of
a field telephone buzzer. I came up
behind two men in khaki with the fa-
miliar blue-and-white band of the
British signalling corps on their arms,
evidently the men I had seen before,
one gazing out towards the batteries
on the left, the other buzzing. Quiet-
ly I approached. Then I grasped the
situation.
With a running jump I landed3
plump on the instrument, yelled, and
hit out with one first under one jaw
and another on the back of a square,
hard head.
"Gott im Himmel!,,"'
"'Gott im Himmel!' came from the
hard headed man and a guttural groan
from the other whose jaw I had hit,
and who lay apparently stunned.
"Then in a moment I was kicked in
the back, which sent me reeling.
"I picked myself up, to find bothI
Boches tearing away towards the
road. They had some yards' start, but1
I gave chase. One stumbled and fell.
I made a rush, and, before he could
rise, kicked as I never had kicked be-
fore-a regular, proper punt. That

ENGINEERNQ COLLEGE DROPS
PLAN TO EXTEND SESSION
Although final action has not been
taken in regard to the 12-weeks' sum-
mer session for the engineering col-
lege, unofficial reports indicate that
the project has been dropped.
It was planned to increase the
length of the summer courses in the
college to 12 weeks instead of eight. It
would have been possible to graduate
in three years under this plan, mak-
ing it possible to turn out engineers
much faster for war work.
A canvass of engineering students
was taken in order to determine how
many would attend such a session if
it were held. One hundred and forty-
two students replied that they wouldt
stay for either an eight or 12-weeks'
session, 23 saying that only the
lengthened term would keep them in
Ann Arbor. Those who for different
reasons could not attend summer
courses of any kind numbered 514.
