MICHIGAN BUREAU MOST
ACTI IN PARIS UNION
GRADUATE WRITES PRESIDENT
HUTCHINS OF ACTIVITIES
President Harry B. Hutchins has
received a letter from Warren J. Vin-
ton, grad, who sailed for France
shortly after the Christmas vacation,
and is now in Paris as volunteer sec-
retary to Prof. C. B. Vibbert, secre-
tary of the Michigan bureau of the
American University Union.
Among the things described was the
condition of Paristdurg war times,
the character of the French people,
and a banquet for Michigan men, at
which Professor Vibbert acted as
toastmaster, William Graves Sharp,
'81L, the present ambassador to
France, the guest of honor, and 34
men at the table.
"Francecompletely upset all my
preconceived notions of a nation at
war," says Vinton. "I don't know
exactly what I expected, but I cer-
tainly supposed life would be very
different from the normal, and that
signs of war would appear on every
hand. Exactly the opposite is true.
In Paris one would hardly believe
that the greatest war of all time is
only 60 miles away.
"The shops are full of everything;
meals, though subject to restriction,
are bountiful and excellent; and pric-
es have not risen too greatly. Cer-
tainly not at all in the proportions in
which they have risen at home.
Union Work Increases
"The work of the Union and of the
Michigan bureau increases every day,
and the number of visitors increases
continaully. Both Professor Vibbert
and myself are kept busy from early
morning until midnight. Visiting with
Michigan men who drop in, telling
them the latest news from home and
from their friends in France is, we
think, most important and worth
while. Our bureau being the best in-
formed on Paris and French affairs,
and having two men who speak
French, has become one of the cen-
ters of activities."
WORK IS BEGUN ON
Foundations have been laid for the
new building being erected south of
the engineering shops to accommodate
the army mechanics to be sent here
The rough carpenter work on the
new building is being done by the
men now training as carpenters in the
engineering shops. They are under
the supervision of the skilled work-
men of the buildings and grounds de-
Chassis work, consisting of the as-
sembling and repair of automobile and
truck chasses, will be carried on in
the new shops, 10 cars having already
been brought from near by towns- for
this work. It is estimated that 40
more will be needed for the instruc-
tion of the men. Most of the cars
received are in running order and are
being driven into town by men from
the gas-engine group of mechanics
now training in the engineering col-
lege under Mr. W. E. Lay.
"The men are getting valuable haul-
ing and 'first aid' experience in this
work," said Mr. Lay last night.

SUMMER POSITIONS FOR0
PROF. H. E. RIGGS HAS MANY
REQUESTS FOR UNDER-
Engineering students have every op-
portunity to comply with the request
of the national service committee of
the college that they spend the sum-
mer months in useful work. Prof.
Henry E. Riggs, of the engineering
college, who returned from Grand
Rapids last Saturday night, said, "I
have no doubt that we can place every
student who applies for a summer pos-
ition before June 1."
Requests from all parts of the
country are on file in Professor Riggs'
office, asking for men to fill positions
paying from $60 to $150 a month. The
army and navy departments are the
heaviest bidders for men, while in-
dustrial corporations, municipalities,
and smaller universities are in great
need of undergraduates and seniors to
fill places emptied by the draft.
The most attractive proposition is
that of the nitrate division of the war
department, which offers sophomores,
juniors, and seniors $110 a month and
expenses to act as rodmen on the $60,-
000,000 explosives plant now under
construction near Charleston, W. Va.
In his letter to Professor Riggs, the
superintendent states that 11,000 men
are being used to rush the plant to
completion. Students accepting. this
position will be excused for the re-
mainder of the term.
Signal Corps Needs Men
The signal corps is in need of me-
chanical draftsmen of some experience
and offers $1,800 a year for work in
the airplane engineering department.
Gas-engine men are wanted by the
bureau of navigation for specialtrain-
ing at' Columbia university and with
the Packard Motor Car compnay on
Other applications are being receiv-
ed every day. The engineering stu-
dent can now pick his position for the
Prof. Henry C. Adams, of the econ-
omics department, will lecture to the
cadets on "Trknsportation" at 4:15
o'clock this afternoon in Hill auditor-
ium. Professor Adams will make his
talk somewhat shorter than the aver-
age Wednesday lectures in order to
enable the cadets to see the remaining
innings of the Michigan-Ohio State
university baseball game this after-
noon on Ferry field.
"Training of the Soldier" is the sub-
ject of sixreels of pictures to be flash-
ed on the screen at 7:30 o'clock to-
night in Hill auditorium. Attendance
is compulsory, and the cadets will fall
in line about 7:20 o'clock in front of
the auditorium, when the first ser-
geants can take the attendance of
Applications for training, for com-
missions in the flying section of the
signal corps, will be received by the
military authorities. A letter explain-
ing the requirements and regulations
is posted on the R. 0. T. C. bulletin
board in Waterman gymnasium, and
all cadets interested are invited to se-
cure the additional information from
the military authorities.
Colonel Atten, of the British army,
will deliver a lecture to the members
of the R. O. T. C. at 8 o'clock Saturday
night in Hill auditorium, according to'

partment. Colonel Atten will speak'

though credit will be given for attend-
ance. Three center sections in the

mainder of the house will be open to
