"A drive eastward from Verdun
which would penetrate no further than
the present German offensive has al-
ready gone would bring the war at
once to an end," according to an ar-
ticle by Prof. W. 11. Hobbs, of tfie
geology department, which recently
appeared in the New York Times.
"This is easily proved and has been
admitted since March, 1916, by a de-
putation from six of the most power-
ful industridl and agrarian organiza-
tions of Germany," the article contin-
ues. it then calls attention to the
fact that the guns and ammunition,
which are the sinews of the war, de-
pend upon resources of iron and coal,
and that though Germany has enor-
mous coal resources it has no import-
ant iron deposits outside of Lorraine
and those in the northern part of
France which she now holds.
The near border of this great iron
district," says the article, "is scarcely
10 miles from the present battle front,
on the heights of the Meuse east of
Verdun, and the further edge is only
about 20 miles beyond."
hiowGermany protected this most
vulnerable slot is then explained. The
article tells how, 10 days before war
was declared with France, Germany
sent one whole army corps and part
of another to that part of the frontier,
and how on Aug. 2, two days before
the declaration of war, she occupied
the iron district of the neutral ter-
ritory of Luxemburg and of northern
France. France, under the handicap
Of the loss of most of her iron-pro-
ducing district, has been forced to
bring much of her iron from her col-
onies across the Mediterranean and
from other sources. Germany, how-
eveh, might be cut off from all fields
by axi Allied victory.

for this training, known as the United
States navy steam engineering school,
has been established at the Stevens
Institute of Technology, Hoboken,
The course as planned consists of
five months' training divided as fol-
lows:: One month of military train-
ing at the naval training camp, Pel-
ham Bay park, N. Y., one month at
the Navy steam engineering school,
two months' practical training on
board ships and in repair shops in
the vicinity of New York and one'
month finishing course at the engi-

The school is open to men 21 and
30, who are physically qualified, of
thorough ability and officer-like char-
acter, and who have completed the
engineering course at any recogniz-
ed technical school. The service that
a graduate will perform will be that

iary service of the navy. A graduate

ensign in the naval reserve.
Information has been sent to all
registered technical schools to be on

tions where they have matriculated.

British Army. Colonel Atten has seen
many months of active service at the
front and is capable of depicting ac-
tual conditions existing "over there."
The government has notified the
military authorities that he would
speak here, and since this is the first
time that a soldier of such a high
rank has ever appeared in Ann Arbor,
the crowd is expected to be large.
Cadets are not compelled to attend,
although credit will be given for at-

the auditorium will be reserved for
the cadets and mechanics, while the
remainder of the house will be open
to the public.
