The entire state is engaged in one
great contest, between counties, cities,
and individuals.
Children are given an opportunity
to win two prizes. First, a button
bearing the design of the Red Cross
seal, if they sell 50 seals (in rural dis-
tricts, 25). If the child manages to
dispose of 200 seals (in rural com-
munities, 100), he receives an honor
roll medal of oxidized silver.
Counties are the keenest competi-
tors in their endeavors to secure for
themselves the services of a visiting
nurse, which will be given for one
month to each of the four counties
in the state selling the most seals per
capita. State pennants will also be
awarded to the winners.

The meeting of the chemical branch
of the Engineering society held last
night showed that there was no lack
of interest in this department. Dean
M. E. Cooley of the {engineering de-
partment spoke on "The Mechanical
Features ofa By-product Coke Oven."
Mr. H. H. Dow of the Dow Chemical
Works of Midland gave a very inter-
esting talk on "The Evolution of a
Chemical Industry."
The three upper classes of the En-
gineering college will hold their as-
semblies this morning. The senior as-
sembly will be at 8 o'clock with Mr.
H. H. Dow of Midland as the speaker.
His topic will be "Manufacturing Con-
ditions after the War."
The junior assembly is at 11 o'clock
and the principal business will be the
election of a chairman and three mem-
bers for the J-hop committee. The]
class will be addressed by Prof. Filbert
Roth of the forestry department.
The first dinner of the year will be
enjoyed by the senior engineers to-
night at the Union. Prof. A. H. White
of the chemical engineering depart-
ment is to be the principal speaker.
The committee promises plenty of
steak and a good time for all who at-

Whether these letters had anything to
do with the rather strange affair could
not be ascertained, but because the
fluent traveler has not been seen
around here for a long time, and be-
cause he made Ann Arbor his head-
quarters, some apprehension is enter-
tained for his welfare.
The police,. department when in-
formed of the affair said that they had
no information about the case and
knew nothing concerning his where-
abouts. "Railroad Jack" is of medium
height, rather heavy set, dark, and gen-
erally wears a blue serge suit and a
blue cap. It is not known whether he
has any relatives in this part of the
country but a rigid investigation will
be made to find any traces of the luck-
less orator.


Mr. T. H. Hinchman, '93E, of Smith,

to the freshmen at their assembly yes-

spoke to the class on the naval brig-
ade. The class elected a committee
for the all-engineering smoker to be
held Jan. 17, consisting of Carl T.
Hogan. Rollin E. Drake, and Stanley

All engineers who hold receipts for
the Technic, should redeem them as
soon as possible at the Technic desk,
as it will be out before vacation.
