ess Men to Hold Get-together
Dinner Tonight

During Monday and Tuesday, the
days on which she was away, near
pandemonium reigned at the little
building behind Hill auditorium. Ek-
cited calls for adhesive tape and iodine
met with no response; the large num-
ber of patients, suffering from pains
in the region of the heart, found their
usual comfort missing, and their long-
ing for relief, unsatisfied.
The senior medics in charge did
their best, but alas, their best was far
from enough. Gone was the look of
joy from the regular patients, their
attempts to think up ailments being
of the weakest variety, when the
source of their inspiration was lack-
But from now on, normal conditions
will once again reign. When the
health service opened yesterday morn-
ing, she was back on the job, and all
was bliss and quiet.
What was it all about? Why, Miss
Bertha Looker, nurse, had just re-
turned to work after a two days' ab-
sence, necessitated by a slight illness.

Plants from all parts of the world
are found at the University green
house which has just been completed,
and is situated about 50 yards from
Packard street. Parts of the house
were torn down in 1915 and recon-
structed. This process is the one that
has just been completed. The plant
consists of four hot-house sections,
about 100 feet in length and 20 feet
wide; a small heating system and a
two-story building containing labora-
tories and rooms for offices.
Many botany specimens bedeck the
rooms of the hot house in great vari-
ety. Among the plants are found
queer varieties from Australia and
In another room just completed
there is a tank of water plants which

their investigations in this direction

Washington, -Feb. 23.--Robert Allar
Hadden, American missionary, was
killed when the French liner Athos
was sunk by a submarine 210 miles
east of Malta on Feb. 17, the state de-
partment announced today. This in-
formation reached the state depart-
ment in a dispatch from Consul Keb-
linger at Malta. Hadden was an
American Presbyterian missionary
and was stationed at Foochow, China.
Later it was stated at the department
that Consul Keblinger had heard a re-
port sthat there were troops aboard
the Athos.
The ship is said to have been tor-
pedoed without warning. The report
said the submarine bore neither flag
nor number. The report of troops
being aboard the Athos, it was said at
the state department, raises the tech-
nical question as to whether the
troops were going to or returning from
the trenches, If the former, this ship
would undoubtedly be classed as a
transport. However, if the latter were
the case it was explained that it would
then have to be determined whether
the ship were a hospital boat or mere-
ly taking soldiers back home for fur-
In either such event the department
stated the government's attitude would
be that passengers who traveled on a
ship carrying any soldiers at all would
be taking an unnecessary risk.


Orchestra Will
Appear Monday
An unusually attractive program has
been prepared for the twilight recital
which will be given in Hill auditor-
um at 4:15 o'clock Feb. 26, when the
University Symphony orchestra of 50
players, under the baton of Samuel P.
Lockwood, will make its third appear-
ance of the season. Albert Lockwood,
head of the piano department of the
School of Music, will be the soloist.
The general public is reminded that
the concert will be given Monday in-
stead of Wednesday as usual, %he
change of date being due to the fact
that the next Choral Union concert
comes on Wednesday.
The program Monday will be as
follows :
Marche Gauloise............Wekerlin
Symphony, B minor (unfinished)...
.................. Schubert
Allegro moderato; Andante con moto
Andante Spianato and Polonaise, Op. .,

Perhaps in the hurry and bustle of
a college career an occasional indis-
creet act or breach of etiquette could
justly be winked at and passed over as
one of the idiosyncrasies of the adol-
escent period. However, the ability tc
forgive and forget is not of such an
elastic nature as will admit of no frac-
Not so very long ago I had occasion
to attend a lecture given in the chem-
istry building where, as every one no
doubt knows, each succeeding row of
seats is raised a foot or so above the
row in front. The lecture was given
primarily for upper-classmen enrolled
in engineering courses, but the stu-
dents from other departments were in-
vited. I took my seat in front of
some junior engineers, who, I am sure,
bore no personal animosity towards
me. After the lecturer had succeeded
in quelling the babble and was fairly
well started in his introduction one of
the men in my immediate rear whiped
his shoe off on my coat sleeve and pro-
ceeded to substitute my shoulder for a
Hassock. After a brief remonstrance I
was able to convince him of his error
and he, without I suppose, any
thought of apology consented to desist.
The friend sitting at my left then kind-
ly informed me that I should not feel
any unusual discomfiture as such a
proceeding was quite customary, and
in fact to be expected in that class.
With this information I was sufficient-
ly pacified to see the lecture through
and be a Roman among Romans.
Last night anlther experience
brought the matter so forcibly to mind
that it wquld seem only fit to make
some public remonstrance against ac-
tions which indeed bring discredit not
only upon one department but upon
the' University in general.
In company with a lady of mature
years I chanced to attend a photo-
drama in one of the local theaters.
During the play several very acute
situations arose which were very
clearly comprehensible without any
need for audible suggestions or ex-
planations from those in the vicinity.
Hwever, in our midst were some of
the usual pests, the original funsters
who find it humprou to cqmment
upon every situation, with all the
volubility of a "sight seeing" orator
whose intellect is only appreciated
by himself. To say the least the re-
marks were very annoying, and at
times, even indecent, if not insulting.
'9he two particular offenders in this
case left when I did and I took par-
ticula pains to note them in the light
and see ft pgibe who they were. I
didn't recognize thel, but I did notice
that both wore gray toques with the
yellow button on top.
This is not an indictment of any de-
partment, but it might be very benefi-
cial to the welfare of the community if
a compulsory course in common every-
day manners was given to some of our
brothers ai~t the other end of the diag-
onal walW yw ap, to use Shake-
speare's words;
"Fit for the mountains } Barbarous
Werp manners ne'er were preach'd."

During the past week, invitations to
debate have been extended to the
University of Michigan by seven differ-
ent universities.
Among the schools which have of-
fered to meet this University on the
platform are: Notre Dame, University
of Texas, University of Southern Cali-
fornia, Tulane university of New Or-
leans, University of Pennsylvania, and
The last school was especially anx-
ious to meet a Michigan team, offer-
ing to debate either on the twenty-
ninth or the thirty-first of this month,
just after they- would have concluded
the annual triangular debates with
Yale and Harvard.
Michigan is at present restricted to
one debate each semester, a negative
and affirmative team being chosen for
each contest.
With the present ruling of the ora-
torical board, the University was forc-
ed to decline the invitations.
Ohio State: Four appointments to
a second lieutenancy in the United
States marines have been tendered to
students in Ohio State university. The
appointments are in the hands of the
president of the university and Major
G. L. Converse, who has charge of the
school's military training.
Harvard: But 175 more men are
needed to complete the full enlistment
in Harvard's reserve officers' training
corps. Already 849 men have enlisted,
and it is expected that the 12 com-
panies will have their complete en-
rollment by the end of the week.
Washington: The question of wheth-
er seniors shall be obliged to take final
examinations or not' has been left in
the hands of the faculties of the vari-
ous schools and colleges of the Uni-
versity of Washington.
Kansas: Prominent women on the
faculty of the University of Kansas
have advocated a course in military
training for women in the university.
It is not yet decided whether the
course will be instituted.
Io a: The stat legislature has
recommended the abolition of the
homoeopathic medical college of the
University of Iowa. The reason given,
is that the cost of operation is ex-
cessive, in comparison with the bene-
fit accruing from the maintenance of
the school.
Ohio State: Engineering students of
this university have formulated plans
for the publication of a monthly mag-
azine, to be devoted to the various
branches of the engineering college.
All that remains for the completion
of the plans, is faculty approval,
which, it is thought, will be given,
