As a fitting climax to the military
training issue that has confronted the
campus for the past few years, comes
the announcement from the United
States navy department to the Uni-
versity that two naval divisions will
be formed in this city. The United
States weill send a 25-foot cutter and a
36-foot whale boat as soon as the two
divisions are completely organized.
These will no doubt be used in the
The divisions are to be divided into
two parts. The Deck and Line division
will be in charge of Dr. J. R. Hayden,
instructor in the political science de-
partment, and the engineers' division
under K. Warren Heinrich, '17E, at
present one of the officers in the sixth
division, Michigan. Each division will
be composed of 50 men with corps of
15 commissioned and 12 non-commls-
Probably the biggest feature of the
Installation of the naval divisions is
that all members of each one will be
paid. Drills will only be required one
night a week. Members will be paid
one-quarter of the pay that they
would receive if they were in actual
service. According to this rate, ap-
prentices will receive about $5.10 per
month and officers about $20 per
month. These payments were made
possible by the pay bill, which passed
congress during the past session and
went into effect Oct. 15.
All students in the University who
are over 18 years old and who can
establish a residence in. the state of
Michigan are eligible for membership.
If the roll of the two divisions is not
filled up within two weeks, member-

high school and finally to the city at

each member of the organization by
the navy department. A 3-inch field
battery will arrive next month.
The two divisions have been desig-
nated to the First battalion- of Michi-
gan and have been assigned to United
States ship Don Juan de Austria now
situated in the Detroit river.
One surgeon will be allowed for each
division, ranking as a lieutenant. This
will be a good opening for a member
of the medical faculty or a medical
student with a degree.
Adjutant-General John S. Bersey
and Commandant J. Fgrrand Lewis
will be in Ann Arbor next Tuesday.
They have been at the Mexican bor-
der since the troops went there. By
the time that they arrive the two di-
visions will. be formally sworn into

All faculty men who have had mili-
tary training and those students who
wish to enter the divisions at officer
ratings will meet at 9 o'clock Saturday
morning in the lecture room of the
economics building. The plans of the
United States in the present big un-
dertaking will be explained to them
then. There will be elected two senior
lieutenants, two junior lieutenants, six
ensigns. The paymaster has already
been appointed. Mr. Roy May, of De-

A general meeting of all students
interested in the movement will be
held next Tuesday. The time and place
will be announced later in The Daily.
All men who were with the military
organization last year should report
at once to Dr. J. R. Hayden or to K.
Warren Heinrich, '17E, at once so that
they will be able to qualify as com-
missioned or petty officers.

For Pennsy Game
Notwithstanding the rumor to the
effect that the seats for the Michigan-
Pennsylvania game have been nearly
sold out, there are still 6,000 to 7,000
left. The majority of these are on
the 5-yard line, but some tickets in
the vicinity of the 10-yard line in
the south stand are available.
The block "M," which will be near
the center of the north stand, has; dis-
posed of a great many seats, while
the section reserved for the Pennsyl-
vania rooters adds more than 250 to
the number of tickets sold. It is esti-
mated that about 16,000 seats have
been sold up to the present time. The
stands on the east and west of the
gridiron will be used, and If every
available spot is occupied the crowd
will reach the 25,000 point.

BOOKS, WORTH READING
FOOTBALL DAYS. William H. Ed-
wards. Moffat Yard and Co., N. Y.
"Big Bill" Edwards, Princeton cap-
tain in 1899, has collected a great mass
of anecdote and story that has grown
up around the history of American
football. There are stories of Mr. Ed-
ward's own football experience, start-
ing with the first glimpses of the game
at prep school, at Lawrenceville and
St. John's Military school, and contin-
uing through a long and varied college
life. He treats of the life of the team
in an informal, personal manner, ,and
especially he writes of his contract
with the famous players of the past,
Joe Beacham, Bill Church, Garry
Cochran, and Jim Rodgers. Stories of
famous encounters of the past lead
down to famous names of the present
generation, Fielding H. Yost, Pop
Gailey, and Phul King.
Other parts of the book are devoted
to such things as "College Traditions
and Spirit," "Hard Luck in the Game"
and "Good Old Trainers."
A VOLUNTEER PO1LU, Henry Shea-
han. Houghton Mifflin Co., N. Y.,
Tales of the war have been coming
to this country steadily since the be-
ginning of the conflict. There have
been tales of the dispassionate observ-
er, and tales from the point of view
of the soldier in the thick of the fight.
"A Volunteer Poilu" is the personal
story of an American who joined the
American ambulance service in
France. It is a story of the American
contribution to the war, and it is writ-
ten with a brilliancy and a poignancy
which only the American-French point
of view of the author could give to
the bare facts of war. Many have
seen death in its most brutal phases,
yet few have come in contact with it
in such force as the ambulance corps.
Yet the story is the story of the
simple, cordial humanity which breaks
through the mist of the war. Others
have written of life in the trenches,
and the atmosphere of the trench life
has become a familiar thing in the
literature of the day. Few could write
of it, however, with the touch of beauty
of color and the curious combination
of peace and horror which constitutes
war. "The Volunteer Poilu" has
rightly been called one of the most
brilliant contributions to the literature
of the war.
