Y. Af. C. A. WORKER TELLS OF
CONDITIONS BEHIND
TRENCHES.
"Ganre called on account of shells,"
describes a football game on the Ver-
dun front as told recently by Dr.
George Meylan, professor of physical
education at Columbia university, who
has just returned from seven months
of Y. M. C. A. work, organizing ath-
letics and directing physical recrea-
tion among the poilus. Dr. Meylan
was with the American sector when
the expeditinary forces came back
from their "baptism of fire" in the
Chemin des Dames engagement, and he
reports that the French officers could
not speak too highly of the soldierly
manner in which our troops conduct-
ed themselves.
Call Off Soccer Game
About the game and the steel down-
pour which Caused the crowd to seek
rain checks: .A soccer match was
about to begin-on a plateau near Ver-
dun. There was one unwelcome
spectator, although he was miles away
and probably a mile up in the air, in a
"sausage," which is an observation
balloon shaped after Fritz's favorite
food staple. ' The Hun in the sausage
telephoned to earth and, just as the
soccer game was about to start, a
shell dropped between the teams. They
ran to shelter, as did the spectators,
while more shells dropped in the field.
To the everlasting credit of amateur
sport, let it be added that players and
crowd were so insistent on the game
that they adjourned to a spot out of
sight of all "sausages" where the con-
test was continued.
Bursting shells are everyday, every
hour ,eitperiences .i lives of all sold-
iers and Y. M. C. A. workers -any-
where within 25 miles of the boclie
guns. Dr. Meylan threw strong light
on the conditions under which all per-
sons back of the trenches live-and
die.
Must Forget Old ldea
"Those over here who have not been
in the war zone must forget their old
time ideas of warfare and its dang-
ers," said Dr. Meylan. "Forget this
old idea of open fighting, with troops
battling across a plain the size of
a large athletic field. Every person
within 20 miles of the trenches is un-
der fire practically all of the time.
Trench Praise Sanimies
"I went forward toward the trench-
es to meet the American soldiers com-
ing back after their baptism of fire at
Chemin des Dames," he said, in com-
menting on this engagement, "and they
were all eagerness for more. The Ger-
mans had sent picked troops against
them, their strongest men in brand
new equipment, to impress the Amer-
icans that Germany hadan abundance
of material and robust men-quite a
contrast to the ill equipped emaciated
men the French had taken prisoners.
The Americans gave guch good ac-
count of themselves in this fight that
the French could not praise them
enough."m
DEPA RTING PRESIDENT GIVEN
FAREWELL DINNER BYSQCIETY
The Bayonne (N. J.) club, at a
meeting held Wednesday night, en-
dorsed the plan of The Daily, as out-
lined in a recent editorial, that each
student bring with him another when
lie returns to school next fall. Every
member pledged himself to do his
share in helping increase the enroll-
ment-of the University.
The organization is planning an' ex-
tensive advertising campaign among
the high school students of that city
with the hope of increasing their rep-
resentation at Michigan.
After the meeting. S. Paul Epstein,

'18, president of the organization, was
given a farewell dinner by the mem-
bers. Epstein left for Camp Dix,
Wrigtstown, N. J., yesterday to join
the national army stationed there.

There are five residences occupied

TEN YALE STUDENTS ARRESTED
IN RIOTOUS DEMONSTRATION
New Haven, Conn., May 23.-Town
and gown clashed Tuesday after Yale
undergraduates, most of them in uni-
form, had swept through the busi-
ness section of the town in a turbu-
lent demonstration. Ten students
were placed under arrest.
LThe best explanation of the disturb-
ance seems to be that two freshmen
ejected a senior from a moving pic-
ture house. The senior gathered his
classmates about him and they began
to "hustle" freshmen wherever they
found them on the streets. The dem-
onstration grew to such proportions
that the officers were called upon to
subdue the breach of the peace.
Among those arrested are 0. F. Day-
isson, Dayton, Ohio; Julian B. Rice,
Washington, D. C., and Dana Cobb,
Peoria, Ill.
A continuance of all cases was re-
quested by the attorneys, and this
was granted until Monday.
