conditions which appeared responsi-
ble for the danger.

addressed the department of philan-
thropy and reforms of the Detroit
Twentieth Century Club. He traced
in detail the development and growth
of the laws that have been thrown

gradually increased, until not onlyr

tected, but even his character safe-_

On the same afternoon, in an ad-
dress to the philosophy and science
department of the, club, Prof. R. M. '
Wenley, of the philosophy depart-t
ment, spoke on "The Origins of the

would not hasten the advent of peace
but would further prolong the war,"
Doctor David, Socialist member, told
the reichstag, during debate on the
subject of submarine' warfare and

Heads in Washington


President Harry B. Hutchins will
leave Ann Arbor today for Washington
to attend the conference of cbllege

ment, on October17. This conference
has been called to consider the estab-
lishment of military courses to be
given in non-military colleges and un-
iversities, which wish to take advant-
age of the army reorganization bill.
Such courses would provide for the
systematic training of reserve officers

tially trained junior officers considered
necessary for the organization of an

training activities on the campus. The
meeting in Washington will throw ad-
ditional light on this question, as it
will determine in large part the future
of all non-military colleges.

C. A. offices in the new building will
'be ready for occupancy by the mid-

rive in Ann Arbor. The guest rooms,
already provided for, may also be used
for this purpose.
The surface of the ground about the
new building is now being graded so

In his address, "Personal Eco

three distinct economies, money, tim

waste of life, labor, and money wi

strive to bring the world to an equill

the scene of conflict, are reached b
its mighty pulsations. Instead of
