EXPECT GERMN'DRIV
ON IIL__ND RUSSIA9
FOOD SHORTAGE PINCHES BOTH
COUNTRIES SAY GOVERN-
MENT OFFICIALS
Washington, March 12.-Germany is
not the only one of the warring na-
tions on its last legs. Italyand Rus-
sia are making a ,last stand, accord-
ing to war department information,
given out here today.
Italy is in the same position as Ger-
many when it comes to food, for her
production is unequal to the demand,
and coal shortage, a vital matter dur-
ing the war, is another cause for
Italy's weakening.
This official predicted that Germany
would start a great offensive against
Italy within a short time, and by
crushing Italy, Germany could estab-
lish a submarine base at the southern
toe of Italy, which would be one of
the most effective points for the opera-
tion of undersea boats in southern Eu-
rope.
Russia's food situation is no better
than that of Italy. Russia is able to
produce enough food, but her trans-
portation facilities are inadequate. As
a result, Russia is, or will be soon,
hungry in spite of food.
If Russia's man-power could be
utilized, the war would be soon ended,
but owing to the poor transportation
facilities, shortage of arms and equip-
ment, about 10,000,000 Russians, other-
wise available for military purposes,
are practically useless.
IRON PANELS ON LIBRARY TOO
LARVE, HAVE TO CUT 'EM DOWN'
Among the numerous delays on the
new additions to the : Library(, the
east wing contributed its share yes-
terday, accounted for, by a mistake
due to the iron workers. The cast iron
panels which are to be placed on the
outside ,of the building, were found
to be too wide. The, iron constructors
in placing the angle iron did not al-
low for its thickness and consequently
the panels are from a half to nine-
sixteenths of an inch too large.
At present a University employee is
cutting the plates to the required size
on one of the machines in the en-
gineering shop. This work on an aver-
age takes the machinist two hours at
a cost of 70 cents per hour, not only
meaning a delay in the completion of
the wing, but an extra expense to the
contractors.
Prof. C. Bonner to Speak on Play
Prof. Campbell Bonner of the Greek
department will address the Classical
club at 8 o'clock Thursday evening in
Memorial hall. Professor Bonner's
talk will concern the coming Greek
play, "Iphigenia in Turis."

Conservatism in future trade is the
prediction made in the latest news let-
ter issued by Bradstreet. This con-
servatism is due to prevailing high
prices rather than to the uncertainty
of international relations. There also
arises the question whether certain ar-
ticle's of food have not reached a price
which prohibits their consumption.
However, wholesale and jobbing
trade is quite active. Retail trade is
hampered somewhat by weather and
road conditions. The boat building in-
dustry is working to its full capacity.
Automobile manufacturers report also
heavy sales.
The car shortage has modified some-
what,-but is still a serious menace,
especially to the lumber industry. A
large number of lumber salesmen have
been called in. Steel and iron show
climbing tendencies. In the foodstuffs,
eggs and potatoes have declined, but
beef, prk, and mutton show a de-
cided increase.
Wheat and flour exports from North
America during the week ending
March 8 total 5,619,053 bushels, an in-
crease of 1,106,716 bushels over the
week previous. Corn exports aggre-
gate 1,284,188 bushels, a decrease of
329,932 bushels. Bank clearing for
the week are $5,720,502,000, showing
an increase ofksix per cent over the
preceding week.
Conditions in Canada parallel to
some extent those in the United States.
Wholesale trade in dry goods is espe-
cially active, but there is difficulty in
getting the material from the mills.
The export of lumber is seriously af-
fected by the British embargo. Bank
clearings show a large increase.

the Lick observatory, was elected di-
rector of the Observatory.
In the winter of 1905-06, the Observ-
atory library and the residence of the
director were reconstructed and en-
larged, in 1916 the shop was estab-
lished and repairs to the instruments
begun, in 1907 the construction of the
large reflecting telescope was under-
taken, in 1908 the students' observatory
was moved to a new location and a
new building added to the original ob-
servatory having a dome for the large
reflecting telescope, clock and class
rooms laboratory, photographic dark
rooms and offices. In 1910 the grounds
were enlarged by the addition of 26
acres of land.
Made Director of La Plata
In 1911 an arrangement was made
with the Universidad Nacional de La
Plata by which Professor Hussey be-
came director of La Plata observatory,
At this time Prof. Ralph H. Curtiss
became assistant director of the Ob-
servatory, in full charge during the
absence of Professor Hussey.
First to Give Instruction
The University of Michigan was one
of the first to give advanced instruc-
tion in theoretical and practical as-
tronomy. As a result of this policy,
extending over more than half a cen-
tury, many important astronomical
positions have been filled by those
who have studied here, and the work
cone by these men has had a wide in-
fluence on the development of as-
tronomy in this country.
What is now the principal building
of the Observatory was begun in 1908
and completed the following year, with
the exception of parts of the dome. It
has a frontage of 44 feet on the north

and a length of 112 feet from north to
south. It terminates in the south end
in a ciricular wall 43 feet high, which
supports the 40 foot dome of the large
reflecting telescope. The building has
two stories, and a basement which is
practically above the level of the
ground. The main room contains of-
fices, clock room, and class rooms.
The second contains offices and dark
rooms. The basemnent contains labora-
