Miss Gulliver's discussion of de-

she gives the impression of bringing
herself with an effort down to the

explained by the purpose for which
the essays were written. The three
essays are no doubt admirable for this
purpose and as such are worthy of

CLASSES FOR GIRLS
SORORITES, LE GUE RHOUSES, AND
DORM ITMORY (ROUPS E TER
In order to train the girls of the Un-
iversity of Michigan as well as the
women of Ann Arbor so that in case of
actual warfare with Germany the most
efficient service may be given with-
out any loss of time, first-aid classes
will be begun here shortly and a cer-
tificate awarded on completion, ad-
mitting to first-aid service.
The committee in charge of the
local branch announce a satisfactory
registration up to the present time,
and it is expected that several more
sororities, league houses, and dorm-
itory groups will make definite ar-
rangements for entering these classes
within a few days.
Upon the completion of the courses,
examinations are sent out from na-
tional headquarters at Washington
and if they are successfully passed, a
certificate admitting to first-aid ser-
vice is awarded. This, however, does
not incur any obligation to the govern-
ment. The charges for the course in
hygiene and home-nursing will be
$5.00, and for the first-aid class, $4.00;
or $8.00 for the combined courses.
This includes membership in the Red
Cross society. Full information will
be given on registration, and i.t is an-
nounced that anyone desiring to enter
these classes should register by send-
ing a post-card to Miss Alice Evans,
Barbour gymnasium, before Feb. 22.

STUDIES IN DEMOCRACY, by Julia
H. Gulliver. G. P. Putnam's Sons,
N. Y., $1.00 net.
These studies in democracy consist
of three addresses given by the presi-
dent of Rockwood college for women,
two of them baccalaureate addresses
and the other one given herore the
State Federation of Women's clubs.
The first, "The Essence of Democracy,"
discusses the effects which the pres-
ent war will have upon our concep-
tion of democracy.
The essence of democracy is defined
as "the attitude of mind and heart and
soul," as contained in the speech of
Abraham Lincoln at Independence
hall, Philadelphia, Feb. 23, 1861. "It
was that which gave promise that in
due time the weights would be lifted
from .the shoulders of all menand
that all should have an equal chance."
With this in view the European war
is conceived as constructive, not de-
"The Twentieth Century Search for
the Holy Grail," depicts the actual
constructive work which women are
doing in civic and municipal reform.
They are responsible for the social
settlement which have acted as a leav-
en in our modern social conditions.
The work of the women's clubs has
been of increasing importance. "In
thus incarnating the spirit of democ-
racy and the spirit of social service
in our commonwealth, American wom-
en are participating in the great world
movement toward a new incarnation
of the deity."
In "The Efficiency of Democracy"
the political and economic efficiency of
Germany and America are compared.
The efficiency of this country is, in the
long run, estimated higher than the
efficiency of the other country because
it limits the development of indiv-
