Paris, March 21.- On authority of
Denys Cochin, minister of blockade,
the United Press is able today to an-
nounce, as proof of the ineffective-
ness of the German submarine block-
ade, that the allies have agreed to
continue the victualing of Switzer-
Cochin has just returned from a
study of the Swiss situation. He an-
nounced that France has agreed to
keep the wolf from the Swiss door.
"Regarding the pretended subma-
rine blockade," the minister said, "it:
harms one out of every hundred ves-
sels. Entry statistics of ours and al-
lied countries prove this eloquently.
Its most evident effect has been to:
bring out anew the radical difference
in the practice of the two groups of
belligerents, a difference at which
neutrals must immediately be struck."

Fewi Meni Signed to Visit Western
3Manufacturing Concerns on
Annual E "*xedition
Registration for the annual spring
engineering trip has been slower this
year than usual, due to the fact that
the trip will be through the west rath-
er than the east. Only 14 mechanical
engineers and less than a dozen elec-
trical and civil engineers have signed
up for the trip.
Prof. J. E. Emswiler, in charge of
the expedition, says, "The trip through
the west will be worth just as much
to the mechanicals and electricals as
the eastern trip, although the lack of
great structures and bridges found in
the east will make the trip a little less
valuable to the civils."
Letters have been sent to the con-
cerns the engineers intend to visit
asking permission to inspect the fac-
tories and equipment and replies are
expected this week.

Several papers dealing with the
Michigan of old are now being ex-
hibited in the east corridor of the Li-
Probably the one which is attracting
the most attention is a paper calling
an indignation meeting of the citizens
of Ann Arbor to protest against the
expulsion by the faculty of all stu-
dents joining secret societies. This
proclamation is signed "Many Citi-
zens," and is dated Dec. 20, 1849.
A copy of the Michigan Palladium
bearing the date, May, 1859, tells of
the formation of a law department in
the University. The course in this
department was to take two years,
of six months each, but the Palladium
expresses the hope that the time will
be reduced to one year for all students
who have had any experience in a
law office. Three professors had been
secured at that time.
A formal notice of a meeting of the
board of regents to be held Feb. 14,
1840, is also on display. At the west
end of the case is a collection of
opera programs for- all shows up to
the present year. There are two post-
ers ,f productions which were given
in 1857 and 1853.
Despite the probabilityethat the
naval militia may be called to Chi-
cago at any time, preparations are
still being made for the naval ball on
Friday night.
"The decorations for the ball will
rival those of the J-hop," said Ken-
neth W. Heinrich, '17E. "Over 100,000
yards of paper decorations will be
used. The entire ceiling of the Arm-
ory will be concealed by a lattice
work, and the walls will be draped
with the flags of the foreign powers
friendly tothe United States. The
feature of the party will be in the
form of an illuminated Union Jack,
which will cover a portion of the
ceiling. During the last dance the
floor lights will be extinguished and
the flag will present the likeness of
a star-lit sky. The field music corps
will sound taps."
Olivet Graduates to Hold Banquet
Prof. Carl E. Pray, '92, of Ypsilanti
will be toastmaster for the Olivet re-
union banquet which will be held at
6 o'clock Thursday evening, March
29. The reunion is open to all former
students and friends of Olivet who
are now in the University, and alumni
visiting Ann Arbor next week during
the annual meeting of the School-
masters' club.

Miss Miriam Gerlach, assistant and
secretary of Dean Myra B. Jordan,
and Miss Agnes E. Wells, social di-
rector of Newberry residence, will
chaperone the Regular Saturday night

Brief burial services for the remains
of Prof. Walter Dennison will be held
at 3 o'clock this afternoon in High-
land cemetery chapel at Ypsilanti.

The evident app oach of spring has
been the signal for increased activity
on the part of the buildings and
grounds departrnent regarding the
plan for the beautift ation of the cam-
pus and an estimate of the cost of
this work is now being drawn up.
The appropriation for this expense
is expected to be Bono 'at the next
meeting of the board of regents.
The north side of the camnpua is the
chief problem of the department at
prescint. Preparatory to the work of
this spring a mall was constructed
between the Chemistry and Natural
Science buildings last summer and
fall and practically complete: I. 1 few
trees near the south end have bee"n
removed and a line of stones have
been placed along the edge of the
drive at this point. The holes caused
by the excavation of the trees are now
being filled and the ground graded so
that the grass may get an early start.
Between the Chemistry and Natural
Science buildings a number of shrubs
will be planted to relieve the vacancy
at this spot. Shrubs will also be
placed in the campus lawns along the
North University front as far as the
Chemistry building. With the 1 ill
auditorium just across the street these

Heading the show which opens at
the Majestic tonight is the Bison City
Four, a comedy quartet. Rawson and
Clare will appear in a little playlet
entitled "Yesterdays."
The Dudley Trio have an athletic
act on the program. The Three
Lyres are singers who render a num-
ber of song hits, and the Oxford Trio
play a game of basketball on bicycles.
Students Accept Positions in Schools
Alice Swayze, grad., has accepted
a position for the coming year in the
English department of the Bessemer,
Mich., high school and Marie Corn-
well, '17, will teach in the French de-
partment of the Grosse Point, Mich.,
high school.
There will be a meeting of the Ann
Arbor branch of the Collegiate Alum-
nae, Saturday, March 24th, at 3 o'clock
at the Kappa Alpha Theta House, 1414
Washtenaw Ave. The meeting will be
conducted by the Child Welfare Com-
mittee. Mr. Floyd Starr, the founder
and head of the Starr Commonwealth
for Boys, has been secured as speaker.
His unusual success in his chosen
field of work, and bis ,excellence as' a
speaker are well known. Plans for
"Baby Week" will also be discussed
briefly.-Adv. 21-2-3-4

EASE at the Wheel
In the journey of life there are many short turns,
and unless you have self-control you're likely to
get into trouble. .
And as it is in life so it is in an automobile.
You must have your controls simple, and close
at hand.
Place yourself at the wheel of a Marmon 34.
You will see at once that to shift your gears you
don't have to shift your position. You will find
ignition and lighting convenient neighbors and the
emergency brake ready for instant use.

This hand-brake enables
you to control your car, com-
fortably and expeditiously,
without lifting your foot from
the accelerator. It's an ever-
ready, every -day brake,
emergency or no emergency.
The Marmon is as easy to
manage as a kodak is to snap.
It starts without a jump and
it stops without a jar. It re-

sponds to the wheel's slight-
est hint, and, regardless of
speed,holds snugto the road.
This spells economy in
maintenance and efficiency
in operation. And it gives t6
the hand at the wheel that
assured sense of perfect con-
trol which makes driving not
a strain but a relaxation; not
a task but a pleasure.

S hredded Wha
the food that puts you on your feet when
.everything else fails. A daily diet of
Shredded Wtleat means clear thinking
a id quick acting. It leaves the body
strong and buoyant and the brain in
condition to tackle the problems of study
or play. It is on the training table of
nearly every college and university
in this country and Canada. Two
Shredded Wheat Biscuits with milk
or cream supply more real body-
building nutriment than meat or eggs
at one-fourth the cost.
