According to a news letter issued
by the National City bank of Chicago,
trade and labor conditions in this
country have reached a crisis. The
present shortage of freight cars is
given as the chief cause of this un-
On Feb. 1, the shortage of cars was
stated as 109,770. This number was
twice as large as the shortage report-
ed on Jan. 1. It must be also taken
into consideration that American rail-
roads have never before reported a
shortage of cars in the month of
As a result of this lack of cars, and
the subsequent embargoes issued by
the railroads, 80,000,000 bushels of
grain have been retained in elevators
and cars. The coal shortage has
proven equally disastrous to manufac-

prominent place in our present econ-

PROFESSOR WATERMAN TALKS
ON "THE FIRST UNITARIAN"
"The First Unitarian," was the sub-
ject of an address given by Prof.
Leroy Waterman Sunday evening be-
fore the Students' society of the Uni-
Professor Waterman described the
religion of Egpyt as consisting of many
gods previous to 1350 B. C. About this
'time Ikhanoton became ruler of the
Egyptian Empire and purified the re-
ligion. This, the speaker said, was the
first attempt to stop religious disin-
tegration. Iloweve , the efforts of
lkhanoton were pre ature and the old
religion was re-established.

TUBERCULOSIS SURVEY BILL
MEETS OPPOSITION AT LANSING
Lansing, March 5.-Except for peo-
ple all over the state who are inter-
ested in the anti-tuberculosis move-
ment, no one is "lobbying" for the
tuberculosis survey bill that has been
introduced in the senate by Senator
Murtha of Detroit. Numerous letters
and resolutions are coming into Lan-
sing calling for a continuation of the
work that the 1915 legislature began.
The state health workers themselves
are leaving the matter to the people
of the state who are interested, while
they are at work as usual "in the field"
naking examinations, giving health
addresses, organizing free local clinics
and other public health organizations.
Dr. De Kleine himself is examining
from 20 to 30 persons a day in the
county surveys, and several other phy-
sicians are doing the same.
If the bill for the continuation of
this service passes it will be due to
interest on the part of health workers
all over the state. As was expected,
opposition to the bill has arisen, but
the fact is pointed out that the best
endorsement of the value of the sur-
vey lies in the fact that a large num-
ber of the counties where campaigns
were held are clamoring for a "return

HARVARD STUDENTS DISAGREE
IN CONCEPTS OF NEUTRALITY
Cambridge, Mass., March 5.--During
the enrollment for the Reserve Officers
Training corps here a small band of
undergraduates organized the Harvard
union for American neutrality, and
placarded college buildings and shop
windows in the vicinity of Harvard
Square with declarations of their be-
liefs. The placards read as follows:
The Harvard union of American
neutrality believes that:
1. War need not follow the break
2. War with Germany cannot estb-
lish neutrals' rights.
3. Retaliation is not the highest
form of honor.
4. Democracy demands a referen-
dum before war.

Posted as conspicuously as the first
declaration, and printed in yellow ink,
appeared the ironic counter-platform
of the Harvard union for American
nincompoops, which reads as follows:
1. This country should. invite the
Kaiser to annex it.
2. The best way to aid the cause of
neutrality is by bending the knee and
not by arching the back.
3. It is unladylike to stand up for
