THE MAGIC CARPET
Friday night we will be given a ride
on the Magic carpet. Back to the lands
in the far east we will travel under
the guidance of the foreign students
of the University. The entertain-
ment is the second annual play or
spectacle to be held under the au-
spices of the Cosmopolitan club. The
purpose of the undertaking is two
fold. First, to raise money for a loan
fund for foreign students. Second, to
bring the campus as a whole into
closer touch with the ideals and cus-
toms of the students from other lands.
Although the performance last year
was unsuccessful financially, we are
glad that the foreign students did not
abandon their undertaking. They have
profited by the mistakes of the first
production and with the experiences
of last year to guide them should pres-
ent a play successful in every way.
We are looking forward to the per-
formance of "The Magic Carpet" Fri-
day night in Hill auditorium.
Ann Arbor is a city possessing con-
scious civic pride. Its residents and
its city officials are awake to many
progressive steps in municipal im-
provement. But Ann Arbor is at the
present time enduring an unnecessary
evil - -slippery, slushy sidewalks.
Though there have been several op-
portunities on warm days to clean off
the thawing slush and ice, most of the
walks have been neglected. The pres-
ent condition of the walks is a dis-
grace, and we hope that Ann Arbor
householders will take advantage of
the next thaw to clean their walks.
EXPERIMENTS FOR THINING
TREES STARTED BY FORESTERS
t eiess a poster was pr epareu y Ul
Department of Naval Militia Affairs at
Washington and subsequently placed
upon the campus bulletin boards, an-
swering the majority of the questions
asked. In addition it referred all pat-
riotic citizens and "prospective mem-
bers" to the above mentioned depart-
ment and its local representatives for
further information. Insomuch as an
answer has again been asked for, and
this request supported by an editorial
in The Daily, we are glad to take this
opportunity of answering the particu-
lar questions asked.
(1). The local units are organized
under the Naval Militia Acts of Feb.
16, 1914; and the Army and Navy Bill
of Sept. 15, 1916.
(2). Under the above mentioned
Army and Navy Bill members of the
local organization are eligible to be-
come members of the National Naval
Volunteer, upon passing examinations
which are prescribed by the Secretary
of the Navy, and set forth in General
Orders No. 153 of the Navy depart-
(3). In answering this question
there is printed an extract from the
above mentioned posters, Paragraph 2.
"The primary object of the Naval Mil-
itia is to train its members in time
of peace so that in time of war they
can serve their country creditably
(4). The Naval Militia is "eligible
to be called forth by the President of
the United States to serve the United
States in time of war, actual or threat-
ened, with any foreign nation, involv-
ing danger of invasion, and rebellion
against the authority of the United,
States government, or when the Pres-
ident, in his judgment, is unable with
the regular forces at his command to
execute the laws of the United States."
Sec. 3, General Orders,153.
(Signed) JOSEPHUS DANIELS,
Secretary of the Navy.
(5). Members of the Naval Militia
can secure discharges for the follow-
ing reasons among others:
(a) Change of residence from dis-
trict in which armory is located.
(b) Physical disability.
c) Expiration of enlistment.
(d) Press of business.
Or if removing to another ditrict of
this state where a similar division is
established, they will be transferred
to it for the balance of their enlist-
(6). Pending legislation now under
consideration at Washington it is im-
possible at the present time to state
whether these men would be handled
as a division or otherwise, in case of
(7). Every member of the Naval
Militia is liable for service. The legal
military age is 18 years and not 21.

WOMAN STUDENT CONTRACTS
ChICKEN-POX AT IOWA CITY
Iowa City, Ia., Jan. 9.-One of the

The authorities at Iowa assert that
there is but slight fear of any ex-
tensive spread of the disease in the
university, as all who have In any way
been exposed are being watched care-
fully for signs of its development.

Experiments aiming to develop an
effective method of thinning tree
species have been started on the Uni-
versity forestry farm under the super-
vision of Prof. L. J. Young, of the For-
estry department. These experiments
are being tried out on selected stands
of white and scotch pine planted 12
years ago, and will extend over a per-
iod of 80 years.
Similar experiments have been tried
out in Europe with the result that an
increase as high as 100 -percent has
been gained in the commercial value
of the timber experimentd upon. In
this country the problem is consider-
ably more complex because of the var-
iety of soils and trees.
This is the first experiment of the
kind ever started in this state and will
be watched with considerable interest
by men who are interested in timber.
First results will appear in about ten
or fifteen years.
