Simple, Soap-Box Language of Army
Chaplains Appeals to Men in
Front Ranks
London, Nov. 17.-No high sounding
phrases and involved quotations make
a dent on the "Tommies "at the front.
It's simple, soap-box, alfresco lang-
uage that army chaplains have to use
if they get an audience.
And all army sky pilots are doing it,
according to an officer just back from
the front.
"Men who preached from immacul-
ate pulpits in words of the higher edu-
cation before the war are out there
talking horse sense to the soldiers
and are having no trouble to get con-
gregations," said the officer.
Here is a sample of the latest kind
of sermon-the logic which the "Tom-
mies" listen to and like:
"If what I am going to say is go-
ing to make an old woman of any of
you men, forget it. If it will help you
take a try at it.
"Now the first thing a fellow has
got to get hold of is that someone'is
responsible for this outfit we call the
world. Someone put it here. You
won't find a shell in your bore or a
feed in your nosebag unless someone
has put it there. Very well, someone
Piut this world where it is; someone
put its here and someone is respon-
sible for our being. That's God. I
think that's horse sense.
"I know a man-a friend of mine-
who fights and boxes for a living.
He's nt ashamed to say-or let you
hear him say: 'Christ-help me to play
the game.' You know what we mean
by that-going straight with men and
women. We all1know what it means,
doing your job and not doing the
"dirty" to anyone.
"I don't want you to be a psalm
singer, wear long hair or be don't-
drink-don't-smoke sort of fellows. I
want you to be manly. It's misery
boys for everyone to hate the sight of
you because you're a rotter.
"Tell Him boys that you're out to
do a bit of good for yourselves; that
you want Him to help you go straight
and clean; that you often find it a
tough job; that you want a real true
friend who knows the worst and the
best of you and I'll warrant help will
The youg chaplain who "preached"
this partic'ular "sermon" was an ath-
letic young vicar from a fashionable
community of London before the war.
His weekly chat with the men is al-
ways looked forward to at a certain
part of the front. After the chat he'll
put on the gloves for a half an hour
with any man who has the nerve to
tackle him.

llicliigan Students Work to Believe
Present Famine
Practical research work to relieve
the paper famine is now under way in
the chemical engineering department's
laboratories where several seniors are
working on the problem under the
direction of Prof. J. D. Rue.
The students are using yagrumo, a
native Porto Rican wood, as the ma-
terial for study, and it will be thor-
oughly tested out to see if it will prove
itself adaptable for paper-making. If
satisfactory results are achieved, it
may be of great value toward the
fostering of a paper industry in Porto
The material comes from a very
rapid growing tree which flourishes
along the river banks and especially
in the vicinity of Adjuntos. It has
never been tried before as a raw ma-
terial for paper but shows good prom-
ise of being satisfactory. The wood
resembles bamboo and like that plant
has a hollow center, although mugh
smaller than the cavity in bamboo.
The hard outer surface of bamboo is
also absent. In the laboratories here
the wood will be made into pulp,
bleached, and'paper actually made out
of it.
Wilson Working on Message to Con-
gress, Also Considering Personnel
of Tariff-Shipping Boards
Washington, Nov. 17.-President
Wilson will take no further vacation
before congress convenes. Struggling
with appointments to the tariff and
shipping boards, and in the face of
international problems, the President
feels he cannot get away. He is hard
at work on his message to congress,
but expects to take one or two week-
end trips down the Patomac in the
He plans to announce the personnel
of the t'ariff commission within a week,
and of the shipping board shortly
afterward. Secretary Tumulty today
put a silencer on reports that there
would be a general overhauling of the
diplomatic corps abroad after March 4.
"This matter has not even been con-
sidered," Tumulty said. "Ambassador
Gerard will return to his post in De-
cember." The president met with his
cabinet today for the jrst time in two

Board of Regents Plans Arrangement
for 1917 Michiganensian
The board of regents has fixed the
order of classes as they will appear
in this year's Michiganensian as fol-
lows: College of Literature, Science
and the Arts, College of Engineering
and Architecture, Medical School, Law
School, College of Pharmacy, Home-
opathic Medical School, College of
Dentistry, and Graduate School.
The position has been determined
by the length of establishment of the
school or college at the University, the
literary college being established in
1837, while the Graduate School, al-
though it has existed for a long num-
ber of years, was not put upon its
present basis until 1912.
The only change this year over last

will be the placing of the Medical
School before the laws. This order
Was reversed last year, but has been
changed for the reason that the Med-
ical School was established in 1850,
while the Law School did not come
Into existence until nine years later.
Active steps toward the procuring of
a county agent for Washtenaw county
will be taken up at a meeting of the
county agent committee of the Civic
association at their meeting next
Thursday night. E. B. Mumford, state
leader of county agent work, will ad-
dress the committee.
The Civic association will try to
induce the board of supervisors to
furnish an agent for the county and
will take up a subscription among the
farmers for this purpose if the board
should frown on the plan. When the
question came up before the board
last year, it was defeated by but one
vote. > _xj


The recent ship building boom has
found an echo in the naval tank, where
Herman Graf, the veteran model maker
is busily engaged in the construction
of a model of a new type of oil tank
Hitherto, oil tankers have been pro-
pelled by a single screw, but with the
rapid increase in the sise of these
ships it has become necessary to drive
them with two engines in order to ob-
tain the most economical results. Each
of these engines is the motive power
of a propeller and, hence, the new
ships will have twin screw propul-
Prof. H. C. Sadler has undertaken
to obtain the experimental data of this
new type, and, in view of the fact
that the lines of similar ships to be
built in the future will be drawn with
reference to the results of these ex-
periments, the present tests are im-
Another interesting experiment be-
ing carried on in the model room is
the shell plating work of E. M. Mur-
phy, '17E, who is Graf's understudy in
model making. Murphy is laying off
shell plating on a model, an operation
not tried before in the' local labora-
The epidemic of corduroys continues
to spread in the southeast corner of
the campus. This time the senior arch-
itects are the ones to consider the ad-
option of the distinctive trousers.
They will take up the matter at their
class meeting next Thursday.
