Any Girl Who Can Pass The Spring
without succumbing to their charms-and then, equally heartlessly pass
the dainty blouses and attraetive skirts-must at last stop at the exceeding-
ly practical and good-looking top-coats.
And then, too, she may decide on a blue serge frock to go with it.

SA UETHE ENGINIERS,
WARNING FROM HARVARD
MEN WITH TECHNICAL TRAINING
SHIOUJLD BE KEPT OUT
Cambridge, Mass., March 6.-Engi-
neers should not enlist in the rank and
file of the army in case of war, ac-
cording to a decision reached by mem-
bers of a preparedness committee at
Men with special ability should not
rush to enlist but should hold them-
selves in readiness to 'solve the prob-
lems of a great army by application of
their arts and sciences. Students who
are trained in engineering are far
more valuable in planning transporta-
tion and mechanical details than they
would be in the fighting trenches.
In Germany, it is said, the engineer-
ing students were not allowed to en-
list in the regular battalions but were
saved for engineering corps, while in
England the trained men ware sent to
the front as common soldiers at the
beginning of the war. The result is
that engineers are very scarce in Eng-
land but plentiful in Germany. Amer-
ican undergraduates and alumni
should profit by this experience and
enlist in the engineering corps only.

BADGER ENGINEERS DISCOVER
BETTER VENTILATING SYSTEM
Madison, Wis., March 6.-Engineer-
ing students of the University of Wis-
consin have perfected a system to
wash and purify the air used in the
heating and ventilation of large build-
Air is run through a tank of water
which removes all dust particles and
bacteria and makes it equal and even
superior to fresh air. A great saving
in heat is the result of the new system
for cold air does not have to be heated
and then pumped into the rooms. In-
stead of this, the old air is used again.
The students at present are working
upon a plan to clean the water used
in purifying the air, so that new water
will not have to be provided from time
