Possessing one of the best experi-
mental ship tanks in the United
States, the University of Michigan is
In position to co-operate extensively
with the federal government in marine
research work. The department of
marine engineering has conducted ex-
tensive experiments with the subma-
rine in the past, although no work is
being done along that line at pres-
The naval tank occupies the entire
basement of the east wing of the new
engineering building. It is 300 feet
long, 22 feet wide, and 10 feet deep.
A traveling truck, with a speed be-
tween 10 and 800 feet per minute,
spans the tank.
The models are cast from a mixture
of parafine wax and bees wax. A
mould of ordinary modeling clay with
a core of wooden strips covered with
canvas is prepared, after which the
model is cast. When it has cooled,'
the model is withdrawn from the'
mould and trimmed to a thickness of
about one and one-half inches.
After a careful burnishing, the mod-
el is marked with the desired position
of the water line, and the measure-
ments and weight checked. It is then
placed in the tank and ballasted with
shot bags so that it floats to the proper
water line in an upright position and
correct trim.
A final check is then taken, and
the model attached to the traveling
-rane. The model is from 10 to 12
f-et long, and may represent a vessel
of any size. By employing Froude's
"law of comparison," the resistance of
a full sized ship can be determined
from the model.
By taking into consideration the va-
rious factors of shape and resistance,
it is possible to determine accurately
what any ship will do under various
conditions at different speeds.
Prof. Herbert C. Sadler, who is in
charge of the experiments, has done
much since his connection with the
University to solve many problems of
naval architecture.

After a New York engagement of 52
weeks at the Casino' theater, "The'
Blue Paradise," a Shubert production,1
will come to the Whitney theater,
Wednesday, March 14.
"The Blue Paradise" was first pre-
sented in Vienna two years ago, and
was written by Leo Stein, author of"
"The Merry Widow." The musical'
score is by Edmund Eysler, composer
of "The Peasant Girls."'
One of the cleverest bills of the sea-"
son is playing at the Majestic the first
half of this week.
Dickinson and Deagon, of "Candy
S op" fame, were encored again and'
again in a lively and witty musical
act. J. C. Lewis, Jr., the youngest
comedian on the vaudeville stage, and"
his sister Maxine, scored the hit of;
the evening with a take-off on "What
Do You Want to Make Those Eyes atI
Me For?"
C. Nester and company presents
a musical comedy tabloid of the
usual plotless variety. Paul Pedrine
and his pet monkey brought forth
much applause. Vera Berliner, vio,
liniste, displayed great skill in handl-
ing the violin.
Velvet Joe Writes Modern Almanac
"Velvet Joe," the philosopher ofa
sunshine and writer of homely verse,
has just issued a modern and up-to-1
date almanac which promises to out-
rival the Encyclopedia Brittanica.
Each page is sprinkled with comments
on life, historic facts, postal informa-
tion, first aid hints, and other sub-
jects done in the author's style.
Try e Michigan Daily Want-Ad. '

Editor, The Michigan Daily:
It is with sincere disapproval that
I have watched the continual efforts
on the part of The Michigan Daily to
arouse interest in a cause that I feel
sure the students of the University of
Michigan do not desire to support.,
That the students of the University do
not desire to indulge in military train-
ing is plainly evident from The Daily's
own figures. These figures indicate
that 152. out of the 5,200 men in the
University of Michigan have accepted
the proposed training course. If The
Daily has been representative of the
sentiment of the student body in urg-
ing military training, it is plainly evi-
dent that the militarists do not sup-
port that which they urge. Of course
I am satisfied that the advocates of
war, and its infernal machine, mili-
tary training, are unwilling to accept
the burden of war or the burden inci-
dent to the preparation therefor. Na-
turally they insist that it is a good
thing for the other fellow, but how-
ever this may be, the actual support
of military training remains the same,
and thereby furnishes conclusive proof
that the great majority of the studentsy
do not desire to indulge therein.
Believing then, that a large majority
of the students of Michigan do not de-
sire to support military training by
taking a course in military training,'
and further, that the purpose of the
student press is to express the senti-
ment of the student body as the sen-
timent of the student body shall from
time to time appear, rather than to
prescribe a course of conduct and in-
sist by all the eloquence that it com-
mands that the course prescribed be
followed; I suggest that The Daily
make an effort to represent the senti-
ment of Michigan in reference to mili-
tary training rather than to further
attempt to control it.
In behalf therefore of those who in-
sist that the "monster of militarism"
and its fore-runner, military training,
shall never find a home under the
Stars and Stripes and to the end that
true patriotism (not the fife and drum
kind R. T. S. refers to) shall be in-
creased, I submit the following:
Awake, Awake, O Michigan!
And look across the deep
Where "war brides" part with virtue
And justice now does sleep.
'p, 'VAM of thnc nnfi+


That priceless gift do give,
In order that a "Monster"
In future years, may live.

Awake, Awake, O Michigan!
Shake off this listless sleep,
Take up this ugly monster
And cast him in the deep.

And now this very "Monster"
Seeks to come across the deep,
To perpetuate such misery
As has made a whole world weep.
He seeks now to perpetuate
Down through the weary years,
In our land of hopes and memories
His widening veil of tears.
I call on all true patriots
Who hold their country dear,
To say with all the strength of life
He shall not enter here.
Strip off his patriotic garb
The disguise that he has worn,
And view his ugly, burly shape
When that garb is from him torn.

Glee Club Will
Discuss Concert
iiterconference Question to Be
Brought Up by Manager
Maurice Nichols, '17, manager of the
Varsity Glee club, will bring up the
question of an interconference con-
cert by the combined Chicago
and Michigan Glee clubs at the
regular rehearsal of the Varsity Glee
club to be held at 7 o'clock this even-
ing in the School of Music.
It is planned, if such an arrange-
ment can be made, to give the concert
in Ann Arbor shortly after the Easter
recess and followed by an engagement
at the Illinois university., Manager
Nichols is confident the club members
will endorse the plan, as it would be
the first step in renewing the confer-
ence interest in musical affairs.
Prof. L. W. Wallace of Purdue uni-
versity will deliver the second of a
series of five lectures on "The Loco-
motive and Its Use" at 10 o'clock this
morning in room 348 of the engineer-
ing building. The first lecture was
given yesterday afternoon. The other
three will be given tomorrow and
Thursday at the hour and place stated
above and the last one Friday after-
noon at 4 o'clock.
Prof. Stanilaus Jan Zowski of the
engineering college will represent
Michigan at Purdue next week and the
subject of his addresses will be "Hy-
draulic Machinery."
There is opportunity in The Michi-
gan Daily Ads. Read them.

Awake, Awake, 0 Michigan!
To our country's crying need;
Men who stand for our "true rights"
And not for war and greed.
Who can hear the citizen
That is hungry, poor and cold,
As easily as the magnate
With his wealth of gilt and gold?
Who see a higher purpose
For old Glory to fulfill
Than flying over columns
That are marching off to kill?
When this higher purpose
Is our object and our aim,
Old Glory's purpose .will be fulfilled
Without disgrace and shame.

Step to your 'phone and call No. l. That will give you the finest print-
ing office, of its size, in the state. Ann Arbor is fortunate in having a plant
located in a PRESS BUILDING and doing printing of the very highest
quality. This building was especially constructed for and is owned by THE
ANN ARBOR PRESS. If you care to order only a card with your name

on it, call No. 1. If you want to print a book, call No. 1.

It's always No.

I for good printing-remember that. So many people like the No. 1 printing
turned out at the Press, that the plant is kept running day and night. The
wheels never stop at No. 1 and when darkness meets dawn, it says "How do
you do-everything is 0. K. at No. 1," on Maynard Street in Ann Arbor.
Come in and see the big work room "whiter than snow." And don't forget
No. 1.
