IN FAVOROF TRINING
DOES NOT THINK WAR WILL
MEAN SENDING ARMIES
"I believe that there should be com-
pulsory military training in every high
school and college in the United
States," said Congressman J. M. C.
Smith of the third district, when in-
terviewed yesterday afternoon.
"Of course," said Congressman
Smith, "credit should be given for
hours spent in training and drill the
same as for any other course. And,
since many are denied the privilege of
attending high school or college, I be-
lieve that some provision should be
made for instructing this class of peo-
When asked about the Chamberlain
bill he said, "I do not know whether
the Chamberlain bill will pass con-
gress or not. That is a question
which it is impossible to answer at
the present time. If the bill is passed
it will mean that 4,000,000 young men
less than 20 years of age and perhaps
10,000,000 men more than 20 years
old will be set in motion immediately.
This may at first seem extravagant
and unnecessary, but something must
be done to awaken our sensibilities to
the necessity of preparation. When
we consider that, until the last few
weeks, more men were leaving the
army- than were enlisting, we see at
once the necessity of conscription.
"I firmly believe," continued Con-
gressman Smith, "that congress is
called together next week for the pur-
pose of declaring war. I think that
President Wilson, in his message, will
show that every resource has been
exhausted in an effort to prevent war,
but since these have failed there is
but one thing to do if we are to pre-
serve our national honor."
Congressman Smith went on to show
that a declaration of war is necessary
at the present time if we are to make
clear our status as a nation. Under
our present status we cannot prevent
intrigue, stop spying, or seize Ger-
man ships in our ports. Neither can
we open our ports to the ships of the
allies under present conditions.
"I do not believe that it will mean
the sending of large armies to Eu-
rope," said Congressman Smith, "al-
though we can do it if necessary. I
think that the war will end as soon
as we master the submarine situation,
and American ingenuity has never
been wanting in time of need. Now,
as we stand on the border of a great
conflict, let every man determine to
uphold the flag, and have for his
watchword, 'once in, everything for
victory,' and there will be no doubt of
Congressman Smith has a son, W.
P. Smith, '19, attending the University
at the present time.

MANY ATTEND CIVIC
DIRECTOR OF DAYTON MUNICIP-
AL EXHIBIT PLEASED WITH
Containing many exhibits of inter-
est to Michigan students, the Civic as-
sociation exhibit at the City hall is at-
tracting an/unexpected number of vis-
itors this week. The attendance yes-
terday was above the 700 mark. Many
men interested in civic affairs have
come to Ann Arbor for the exhibit.
Dr. Upton of Detroit, who managed
the exhibit at Dayton, expressed yes-
terday his surprise at the splendid
features and completeness of the ex-
Exhibitions In the administration
department are instructive to students
of economics and sociology. The In-
hoff tank for sewage disposal, the
samples of sewers, the charts on city
planning, and the exhibit of the Detroit
Edison company afford sources of in-
struction for the engineering students.
A collection of weapons from the
police department, each with the story
of some crime back of it, are also on
TO RAISE $5,000 FOR
BUSRAH RELIEF WORK
Three Hundred Men to Campaign for
Arabian Fund Second Week
Three hundred men will constitute
the campaigning force with which the
University "Y" expects to raise $5,000
for Busrah the second week after
spring vacation. The sum of $5,000
is sufficient to send another doctor
and nurse to Arabia.
Interest of the University "Y" first
turned to Busrah in 1910 when Charles
E. Shaw, '10E, offered $10,000 and his
life devotion to engineering work in
Busrah if the Students' Christian as-
sociation would send a doctor. The
Bennetts happened to be already sta-
tioned at Busrah and Mr. H. G. Van
Vlack, 'OM, and Miss Minnie Holz-
hauser, '13, sailed in 1913 for Arabia.
This was the nucleus for the little
colony of Michigan m.en and women
who have done work among the na-
tives in medical and missionary lines.
Two years ago the war compelled
Mr. Shaw and Mr. Haynes, '10E, to
withdraw. Four of the colony are at
Busrah now. Miss Holzhauser reached
the city in time to be of valuable serv-
ice during the fighting between the
Turks and the British at Busrah.
Lately the friendship of the most pow-
erful sheik in Arabia has been se-
cured. This will prove of value in
the work contemplated at Busrah.

sity by which they can meet the pres-
ent national crisis.

Two more victims of the scarlet fev-
er epidemic have been added to the
list of student patients. Albert A.
Clark, '19, came down with the disease
Wednesday morning at the Alpha Del-
ta Phi fraternity on State street.
Clark was immediately removed to
the contagious ward of the University
hospital and the fraternity placed un-
der quarantine. Four hours later, the
house was fumigated and the quaran-
V. J. Husted, '19E, is the other stu-
dent who has been removed to the con-
tagious hospital for scarlet fever.
Husted has a slight case and will prob-
ably be discharged in a few weks.
Phillips B. Preston, '17, who came
down with the fever at Chi Psi fra-
ternity, has just passed the crisis and
is on the road to recovery. Preston's
mother has been with him during the
past week. James P. Adams, '19, an-
other victim, is now recovering and
will be discharged next week.
According to Dr. H. H. Cummings
of the University health service, the
epidemic is being successfully check-
Andrew D. Althouse, '19, has been
removed to the University hospital be-
cause of an attack of pericarditis.
The epidemic of German measles is
still prevalent among the students. So
many cases of the fever have been re-
ported that it is impossible to place
the patients in the contagious ward of
the University hospital, and they are
quarantined in their rooms. Henry
L. Smith, '20, is the latest victim.

*At its April meeting, the Board in
Control of Student Publications will
choose a business manager and manag-
ing editor for the Students Directory.
It is the policy of the board in filling
the positions on the publications un-
der its control, to award them on the
basis of merit to those who have serv-
ed in minor positions on the publica-
tions to which the positions pertain.
It sometimes happens, however, that
no one who has served on the publica-
tions during the year is eligible or
capable of filling one of the leading
positions for the ensuing year. When
such circumstances arise, the board
finds it necessary to consider outside
candidates. This notice should not be
considered as an intimation that these
circumstances will arise this year.
All applications for these positions
should be in the hands of Professor F.
N. Scott, on or before April 2, in order
to be considered. Each application
should contain a statement of the ex-
perience of the applicant and should
be accompanied by the applicant's
eligibility card and any letters of rec-
ommendation which he may have.
