The discovery was first learned of
with the receipt of a cablegram in this
country addressed to the keeper of
the New York city zoo.
Most of the telegram was unintel-
ligble except for th first line. "Have
found it, what I have been searching
for all my life," was all that could be
deciphered of it.
The rest of the cablegram was un-
derstood to be a description of what
eminent biological professors, who
have been consulted, declare will be
one of the oddest freaks of animal
life that has ever been heard of.
The cablegram was sent from Pon-
tichello, Southeast Africa, a place that
has not yet been successfully located
on maps of that continent by the keep-
er of the New York zoo. The cable-
gram was signed by a' famed Amer-
ican authority on biology who left this
country several years ago to make a
discovery tour into the wilds of Africa.
The keeper of the New York zoo is
still anxiously awaiting further in-
formation about what so far is a very
obscure and tantalizing mystery to

Week-End Atarks
Donning of Strawns
Real summer is here at last! The
kind of summer that brings on the
languid, boulevardy feeling drives
many a swain up to the little old Hu-
ron for a "canoe-ride."
There is no doubt about the ar-
rival of the hot time. Doubters and
scoffers must do.away with their
sneers and close their philosophies
for they are out of order. No, the
summer frocks in the patriotic pa-
rade are not the signs of summer's
arrival. Nor is the leafing out of the
campus trees.
Straw Hatday has been announced.
This year there will be two days,
say the powers that be. Friday and
Saturay of this week will be the mo-
mentous occasions. Michigan's tradi-
tions must be adhered to. Goodbye
derby and cap. Nothing will be prop-
er but straw hats or fresh "pots." For
the freshmen are not supposed to be-
lieve these days are any imitations of
Cap night. Everyone else will be ex-
pected to don new headgear.

not mechanics, men, and money that
will win the ┬░war, but the morale of
the nation. It was the morale of the
Italians that made them lose the war.
We must sink all our individual dif-
ferenas and personal desires that
stand in the way of a united America
and the men in the trenches."
French Officers Parade
Serg. Ernest Coste and Serg. Robert
Sorel, two French officers detailed at
Camp Custer as trench warfare in
structors, took part in the parade yes-
terday. Sergeant Coste gave an ad-
dress, directly following President Mc-
Kenny's speech, on "The Work of the
American Red Cross in France."
Both men have seen two years of
active service, having been in the bat-
tles at Verdun and the Somme. Ser-
geant Coste is a graduate of the Rem-
vio's university in France, and is in-
structing the men at Camp Custer in
engineering. Sergeant Sorel is a
graduate of the wireless department
of Paris university, and was wounded
in the cheek, because of which he was
forced to remain in an American Red
Cross hospital for a month.
Praises American Red Cross
Although Sergeant Coste was never
wounded, he said that he saw a great
deal of the work of the American Red
Cross at Verdun, and said that it was
a "marvellous institution." They 5a:e
well equipped, and are even supplied
with a number of X-ray machines, so

necessary in the surgery work. He
said that their system is so efficient
that men can be operated on two hours
after they have been wounded. "Bless-
ing is poured forth from every soldier
for any assistance that may be done
for the Red Cross organization," con-
tinued Sergeant Coste.
In commenting on the parade, he
said, "It was marvellous. We have
seen a good number of such demon-
strations in this country, and have
been welcomed everywhere. Such a
large celebration was not expected
from a city this size." In referring
to the work of the R. O. T. C. men,
Sergeant Coste said: "They march
excellently for the short period they
have been training. This is probably
due to excellent instruction."
It was announced at the end of the
parade that Ypsilanti had gone "over
the top" at 3 o'clock in the afternoon.
Thrift Clubs Formed to Sell Stamps
The down town committee for the
sale of thrift and war savings stamps
reports that many thrift clubs have
been .formed during the drive which
was inaugurated last week. Several
hundred clubs are expected to be or-
ganized as a result of the campaign.

Aged Autos Snared
To Aid Mechanics
The yard back of the -Engineering
building has become a happy-hunt-
ing-ground for all sorts of early-vin-
tage automobiles of various degrees
of rust and dilapidation. Most of
these wenthout of activecservice years
ago and have since decorated sundry
farm yards in the county as recepta-
cles for geraniums and petunias.
All day yesterday, perspiring
groups of men, helped by the Uni-
versity's motor trucks, were engaged
in dragging these heirlooms from
their resting places to the present
mobilization point behind the Engi-
neering building. Here they will be
utilized to instruct the new unit of
army mechanics in chassis repair and
"Dead or Alive
Members of the present group of
gas-engine mechanics are receiving
valuable instruction in first-aid work,
being sent after the cars with in-
structions to bring them in "dead or
alive." On the trip in yesterday, the
sand was so deep that it was neces-
sary to drag first one car through and
then return for the next. The last
convoy arrived early yesterday morn-
ing, having started from up in the
county Monday afternoon.
The chief of the tribe, and perhaps
the most interesting, is a hybrid that
was brought in from Whitmore lake
on its rims yesterday afternoon. With
a Chalmers frame and axles, this
freak boasts a Studebaker engine,
Cadillac body, and Elmore transmis-
sion. Some of the men who brought
it in say they expect to discover parts
of many other cars when the time
comes to take the thing apart.
Nine Cars in Collection
There are nine other cars in the
collection and more are arriving ev-
ery day. According to the men in
charge, 50 machines in all will be
needed for the instruction of the
men. Of these, it is hoped that 25
may be restored to running condition
to serve as road cars, while the oth-
ers will be taken down and used for
class work.
The University of Texas is, or soon
will be, training more enlisted men
than any university or college in the
United States. By the -middle of June
it will have in training 3,770 soldiers,

closest rival, is now instructing 2,195
The registrar of the University of
Texas, in a letter received yesterday
by Homer Heath, '07, general secre-
tary of the Union, who is collecting
data on the number of soldiers which
the various universities are training,
"The University of Texas is operat-
ing three schools for the United
States government. One of these is
the School of Military Aeronautics,
established about one year ago. While
the number of men in that school va-
ries from month to month, the average
is about 1,000.
"The second school, established about
two months ago, is the School of Ra-
dio Mechanics. Two hundred and sev-
enty men are being trained in it.
"The third school opened this week
with 500 men. It is the Schol of Au-
tomobile Mechanics. The war de-
partment will send about 500 men
each week until the number reaches
2,500. New barracks have been built
to care for them. By the middle of
pext month the University of iTexas

will have in training 3,770 enlisted
Two more Michigan girls left last
Saturday to join the unit of war gar-
den workers at Detroit. They are
Helen Hughes, '18, and Zora Hickox,
These girls will aid in the organiz-
ing of groups of children, who are to
cultivate war gardens on the vacant
lots of Detroit. Each girl will over-
see four or five of these groups until
July 1. The work will be continued
after that time by the civil service.
These students will receive full credit
for the semester's- work.

Word has been received of the safe
arrival of a box of cold cream con-
taining 200 jars, which was sent to
France in the early spring to be dis-
tributed by Dr. James F. Breakey,
'91M. The need for such commodities
is expressed in one of his letters pub-
lisped in the Alumnus and the ad-
visory committee of the university Y.
M. C. A. has attempted to furnish a
very limited supply for our men over-
"Cold cream is difficult to procure
and doubly needed by reason of the
life our soldiers lead and the limited
amount of hot water procurable forA
ordinary hand bathing. The water
is very hard and their skin suffers ac-
"The shipment was all too small
when distributed among 30 or more
officers, 75 nurses, 30 or 40 wards
with 800 to 1,000 patients, to say noth-
ing of our own 150 men."
Every jar of cold cream sold, sends
one jar abroad, for all profits go Into
cold cream for our men in service.
No money is paid for the labor of
making the cream, this being given
free. The cold cream is on sale at
Quarry's drug store and Mack's drug
Members of both the men's and worn-
