Courtyard Were Formerly Ideal
Models of Their Type
Have you ever wondered at the' ar-
ray of unpainted, broken, and rusty
machinery whish is at rest in the
courtyard of the engineering build-
In its day this pile of junk was rep-
resentative of the best mechanical
ideas then known. Much of it bears
the name plates of some of the oldest
engineering concerns. All of these
machines have undergone exhaustive
tests just as the modern applications
are being tested today in the mechan-
ical laboratory of the engineering col-
lege. Some of them failed during the
tests while others produced fairly good
The machines today made by the
same companies are striking examples
of the progressive steps taken in ma-
chine design. When the present eng
ineering classes return to their Alma
Mater several years hence they will
no doubt see lying rusty and useless
in this grave yard the very machines
which they tested.

Prepare for War

New York, March 9.-Conscription
of incomes as well as men, and the
limitation of all incomes to a maxi-
mum of $10,000 is the plan advocated
by Prof. Benjamin B. Kendrick of Co-
lumbia as a means of successfully
meeting the enormous economic bur-
den that war imposes.
The substance of his argument is
that present, not future generations
should pay the cost of war, and he ad-
vocates as a means of producing the
desired result, the adoption of a sys-
tem of taxation whereby those not in
the ranks of the actual fighters shall
stand the chief burden of the financial
support necessary.
All incomes are to be taxed by a
graded scale ranging all the way up to
a 50 per cent tax of incomes large
enough to stand it, and absolute con-
fiscation of all in excess of $10,000 of
any individual's income.
As a means of preparedness during
times of peace, Professor Kendrick ad-
vises two years' compulsory social
training by every man in the country.
Between the ages of 18 and 20 every
youth would be required to do such
.work as is connected with the con-
struction and repair of public high-
ways, railroads, canals, and the like,'
with one day a week devoted to mili-
tary training, and six weeks or two
months in the summer spent in a
training camp.
As a further means of giving the
government entire control of all the
resources of our country in time of
need, government ownership of all
means of transportation and communi-
cation, and government planning of
such new improvements as national
highways, are also advocated by Pro-
fessor Kendrick. The national gov-
ernment, to the exclusion of the state
governments, would control everything
of any importance in the country, and
have the disposition of the lives and
property of its citizens where it can
control them at a minute's notice.

Thomas Mott Osborne of Auburn,
N. Y., who has achieved a nation-
wide reputation as an authority on
prison reform, will speak Sunday,
March 18, in the Methodist church on
the subject "Common Sense in Prison
Management." Mr. Osborne's spe-
cialty is that of acting as a voluntary
convict in American prisons and then
writing about his experiences. He has
just completed two "terms" of 10 days
each, one in a naval prison. and one
on a navy prison ship.
This will be the ninth lecture on
the Wesleyan Guild lecture course.
Two more will be given this semester,
one by Ernest F. Title, pastor of the
Broad Street Methodist church in Co-
lumbus, 0., and the last by J. M.
Killits, United States district judge of
the northern district of Ohio.
Yale: Rear-Admiral Bradley E.
Fiske terms the new Yale naval unit
"the finest thing that any college has
done since the present crisis faced
us." He recommends that the power
of the unit be augmented by an aero-
plane force.
Pennsylvania: The class in munici-
pal government will make an excurs-
ion to New York next Saturday for the
purpose of visiting Mayor Mitchell
and other high officials, and the pub-
lic service commission.
California: Spring practice for the
1917 football team began the first of
the week under the direction of Coach
Andy Smith.
Cornell: The Cornell track team
won first honors at the annual indoor
meeting of the I. C. A. A. A. A. held
last Saturday evening in the exposi-
tion building in Philadelphia. This is
the third time in as many years that
the pripcipal honors have come to
Cornell. Two indoor records were
broken by the Cornell men.

Goethals, builder of the Panama canal,

hall last Monday.

Porto Rico Furnishes Half
of Latin American Students

Fifty per cent of Michigan's Latin-
American students come from Porto
Rico. All the Latin-American coun-
tries combined have 50 students in Ann
Arbor, 25 of whom are Porto Ricans.
Chile ranks second in the number of
these students, having 10. Brazil has
four, Mexico and Peru, three each, Ar-
gentina, Equador, and Cuba, two,
while Columbia, Bolivia, Panama,
Costa Rico, and Honduras each have
Michigan has probably as large a
number of Porto Rican students as
any college in th1e country, according
to Mr. J. M. Hernandez of the Spanish
department. The cause of this, ac-
cording to the instructor, is the un-

usually large number of Michigan
graduates in business in Porto Rico.
Back in the seventies, Michigan gradu-
ates were perhaps the only American
college men in the country. This ad-
vertised Michigan as a leading Amer-
ican college, with the result that a
great part of the Porto Ricans who
come to America to study, come to
Ann Arbor.
The medical and engineering col-
leges almost monopolize the Latin-
American students, each having about
an equal number.
Electrical engineering is especially
popular among these students because
of the large demand for members of
this profession in South America.

Redwood Disc Gift of Henderson, '14
H. L. Henderson, '14, who is located
in the redwood district of northern
California, recently sent to the for-
estry department a redwood disc
which is one foot thick and 12 feet in
diameter. Due to the massive size of
the disc, it had to be shipped in parts.
It is at present .stacked up in the
basement of the science building.
After the disc is dry, it will be put
together and shown at the science ex-
hibit in the spring.
