It Was Washington
who said to his secretary, when the secretary was late to go to an ap-
pointment. "Either you must get a new watch or I a new secretary."
Now we do not know whether the secretary got the new watch or not,
but we do know that if he did he did not get anything as artistic or as
dependable as the watches as can be had by people of today, even if he
paid four times as much for it. Modern science has done wonders in
the manufacture of fine watches, as well as other things and with the
aid of delicate machinery finer watches can be made at a rate and at
a price undreamed by our grandfathers.
Our stock of reliable watches consist of those thin model watches
for the boys and the ever popular bracelet watches for the young
ladies.. We are prepared to serve our customers who have promised
a watch for a graduation present. We also have heavier watches for
those who want watches for rough use.
You will find our prices on fine watches very reasonable, and we
shall be glad to show you the beautiful designs at your convenience.
THRPS IN CANA ZONE
All Preparation Made for Entrance
of United States in
(Note:-This is the third of a series
of articles written by a former Mich-
igan student now at the Canal Zone.)
Preparations for the entrance of the
United States in the great European
struggle seem to be under way, and
making rapid progress. Probably the
majority of civilians who glance
hastily at the headlines of their news-
papers have no idea of the magnitu'de
of the task that will have to be un-
dertaken in order to have a truly rep-
resentative body representing the
United States in the field prepared to
defend her national honor, and to
maintain the basic principles which
resulted in the formation of the
Union; to maintain her liberty, and
prove to any or all other nations that
she has a right to exist.
At the present time, certain steps
are being secretly taken that will in
time, astonish not only the people of
the United States, but also the men
higher up in the countries who seem
to be inviting trouble. These prepara-
tions are indirectly affecting the
troops on the Canal Zone, although
little can be said about them.
Soldiers in All Parts
Members of the Fifth Infantry have
been ordered to different parts of the
Canal Zone where it is felt that their
presence is needed. The machine gun
company has been left at Empire, the
permanent post of that organization
to do the main guard duty, and "L"
company has the duty of guarding the
61 Germans who are interned there,
members of the ships seized in Colon
harbor. Two companies have been
detailed to watch over the radio sta-
tion at Darien, and others are at
Christobal. French and United States
cruisers are still lingering in the vi-
cinity of Colon, and their presence
adds to the feeling of security that is
gradually becoming evident to the
civilian population of the Zone.
Guards on Loks
Guard duty on the locks and spill-
way at Gatun has not been relaxed,
and companies of the first battalion
alternate weekly, two companies being
on duty four days and off three. The
third battalion is in camp along the
Atlantic coast, cutting trails and ac-
customing themselves to the terrain.
Should any attempt be made on the,
Canal, it is supposed that it would
come from the north, and necessarily
a knowledge of that part of the coast
Much news that would be interest-
ing is of such a nature that it would1
not be exactly wise for an enlisted
man togive it out. In spite of the1
fact that he is not in a position to
definitely state facts, there are alwaysI
movements that are obvious, and thatf
speak for themselves. However thet
stating of these deductions and ob-
servations might bring unpleasant re-t

PROF. R. W. WOOL) INVENTS DE-
VICE TO THAW OUT FROZ-
EN WATER PIPES
When Prof. Robert William Wood,
who is to lecture here next Thursday
night, was teaching physics at the
University of Wisconsin, he demon-
strated that being a professor has a
practical as well as a theoretical side.
The water pipes on an entire street
froze up and, with the aid of Prof.
D. C. Jackson, he devised a method
of thawing them out by the.use of
high power electric currents.
Professor Wood is to speak upon the
subject of "Photographing the In-
visible," which he illustrates by pic-
tures and experiments. He is brought
to Ann Arbor under the joint auspices
of the University and the Academy of
To many Professor Wood is known
as the author of the little humorous
booklets, "How to Tell the Birds from
the Flowers," and "Animal Anologies."

University of Kansas.-Dr. John
Sundwall, of the health service at the
University of Kansas, says that the

than a dozen cases of measles being
treated at the university hospital.
University of Washington.-Plans
are being discussed at the University
of Washington to install the four se-'

ommendation which he may have.
