The Univeristy of Michigan hasI
not suspended.I
In all this furor and excitement
incident to the war, there are many,
students abroad on the campus who1
seem to be laboring under the de-
lusion that the serious part of the1
year's scholastic activities is over,l
even though the doors have not been
officially closed. Those who continue'
to entertain this notion are going
to be surprised and disappointed
next June unless they change their
tactics soon.
Class room work is just as neces-
sary now as it has ever been. To-
date there are no professors who have
gone on record with the statement that
everyone in their courses will receive
a passing grade in June, irrespective
of the quality of their work. Hence, it
behooves those who seem to be enjoy-
ing a mid-semester vacation to awak-
en from their dreams of a possible
lieutenancy or free trip to Europe
with expenses, and again become fam-
iliar with the old text books and the
interior decorations of the Library.
For the purpose of obtaining a prac-
tical idea of the workings of a print-
ing and engraving plant, members of
the Tryads and the advertising classes'
conducted by Dr. W. D. Moriarty will
go to Detroit Saturday to visit the
plant of the Mack Printing companyl
The trip was planned originally
solely for the benefit of the two organ-I
izations, but it has been decided to
allow others to accompany if they1
communicate with Dr. Moriarty or G.1
L, Kesler, '17L, sometime before Sat-
urday morning. The party will leave
over the Michigan Central railroad at

7 o'clock.
The tour of the plant will be com-
pleted in the morning and a partyt
has been formed to attend the Cleve-

Proved a Whale
Letter Tells Thrills of Ocean Travel
and Precautions
Madison, Wis., May 2.-H. L. Gard-
ner received a letter from his broth-
er, Lloyd Gardner, who is in Paris,
having left about a month ago to join
the French ambulance corps.
The letter tells in detail of the pre-
cautions observed while crossing the
ocean. Life boas drills were held reg-
ularly and anyone leaving the port
hole of his stateroom open dr striking
a light on the deck after night fall
was imprisoned.
Great excitement occurred on the
fifth day of the voyage, when one of
the passengers thought he had sighted
a periscope. The sailors trained their
guns on the object, but on closer ob-
servation the "periscope" proved to
be the back of a whale.
While waiting for orders, Gardner
is working on ambulances which have
been wrecked at the front.
Former Wisconsin Student Describes
Thrilling Incidents
Madison, Wis., May 2.--Horrible de-
tails of the carnage on the French
front, and thrilling incidents of the
air battles raging above the front are
contained in a letter from Ray Wil-
liams, a former Wisconsin student now
in the French ambulance service, to
a former student friend.
Williams tells of an air battle in
which a French observation balloon
was fired by a German plane. The
observer cut loose his parachute. It
retarded his fall so much that the
burning bag enveloped him and
roasted him to death.
Another time Williams was march=
ing along a road a few rods behind
a group of 10 common soldiers. A
German shell burst near the soldiers
and all that was left to mark the spot
was a heap of mangled flesh.
"I am glad the good old U. S. A.
has finally rebelled against the kaiser,"
he said, but hopes the time will never
come when we send men there. "We

but they are histories of the past when
man was against man, and not when
men are cannon fodder and war is a
battle of mechanical infernal ma-
Cost of Fuel May Revive Peat Industry
Lansing, Mich., May 2.-High price
of fuel is leading to consideration of
a revival of the peat industry in Michi-
gan, in which many Lansing people in-
vested money several years ago and
got no- return. Plants for drying and
pressing peat for fuel were opened
at Capac, Bancroft and Eaton Rapids,
but somehow old world methods of
drying the product of the peat bogs,
of which there are hundreds of acres
in the state, did not prove profitable
and plants have been abandoned for
years. Peat gives a clean, even heat,
and if new methods of pressing and
drying are more, economical may be-
come a big source of Michigan's fuel
Merchants Aid Ambulance Corps Men
Berkeley, Cal., May 2.-Merchants
and organizations in Berkeley have
been generous in their gifts of equip-
ment to the 42 men who left for work
in the French ambulance corps.
A shoe company in the East fur-

nished two pairs of shoes for each
man and a number of the merchants
sold supplies at cost. The seniors of
one of the departments gave up their
annual banquet and dance, donating

To Acquire 417 Acres of Land Around
Present Reserva-
Chicago, May 2.-Another big in-
crease in the Great Lakes naval train-
ing station is forecast in orders re-
ceived yesterday permitting estimates
on the acquisition of 417 acres of land
lying north, west, and south of the
present reservation. The land may be
acquired either by purchase or rental.
A preliminary survey indicates that
the large owners, among whom are
Mrs. A. C. Gormally, Thomas Byrne,
C. A. Newcomb, and M. N. Phillips,
favor leasing or perhaps outright loan
during the war. One citizen, owning
100 acres, has offered it gratis for
the war with permission to cut down
timber and demolish buildings. As
$2,000 an acre has been given for some
of this lan'd, purchase might require
nearly $1,000,000. The navy depart-
ment is endeavoring to get $500,000 for
construction work alone.
Another record was established for
recruits received, the day's arrivals
totaling 750. Of these 400 were the
naval militia of Missouri, to be fol-
lowed at the end of the week. by 600
from Minnesota.
The navy department has authorized
also the use of Culver Military acad-
emy if it is needed, but is likely to
confine the new space for training to
the additional land at North Chicago
and that in Grant park.
Architects' plans for the Grant park
camp are completed and work will be
started before the end of the week.
About the tract is to be erected a high
picket fence. The camp can be ready
for occupyancy 10 days after work is
Another draft was sent East during
the day, 400 strong, for immediate
training on shipboard.
iKansas Students to Use Wooden Guns
Lawrence Kans., May 2.- Kansas
students in training are going through
the manual of arms with the aid of
wooden guns. The new classes in in-
dustrial training have undertaken the
task of supplying their soldier breth-
ren with the next best thing to ac-
tual rifles.
More Men Needed to Index Cards
Although a large number of women
are turning out every afternoon to
work at the Union indexing the cards
returned to the intercollegiate intelli-
gence bureau, more men are needed
for the work in the evenings. The1
cards are being returned at the rate
of 200 a day..,

Notebooks of the playground class
are ready to be returned to the
members at the director's office, Bar-
hour gymnasium.

Washington. The intended instruction
will be purely a student activity anc

in no way. The company has already
been offered the use of 60-foot power
Illinois Fraternities to farm Land
Champaign, Ill., May 2.--Fraterni-
ties may aid in relieving the present
food crisis and also may net a large
profit by a gardening plan suggested
by the I)aily Illini.
The idea is to secure grants of the
use of municipal land from the city
and have the members plant and care
for the crop. Seed potatoes could be
purchased by the organizations and
work during the summer could be done
by students attending summer school,
many of whom will work for low
