ANN ARBOR CIVIC ASSOCIATION
SENDS OUT LETTERS TO
Letters are being sent out this week
to all the citizens of Ann Arbor by
the Ann Arbor Civic association ask-
ing them to sign a petition to the
school board of the city to establish
a course in agriculture in the regular
school curriculum, beginning with the
summer school, in all grade schools
and in the high school. The petition
with the signatures will be present-
ed to the school board as soon as
the letters are returned.
Along with the work, if it is adopt-
ed, will be practical work on vacant
land in the city. Allotments of lots
will be made to the school children
and pupils will probably be excused
from school for a few days in order
to plant seeds.
The Civic association has received a
letter from Fred L. Keeler, state sup-
erintendent of schools, indorsing the
petition and giving suggestions as to'
the method of working out the plan.
Copies of his letter are being sent out
with the letter containing petitions to
the school board. County School Com-
missioner Essery has also endorsed

MICHIGAN WILL ASSIST
ORGANIZATION TO RELIEVE CON-
DITIONS AMONG STARVING
Through the organization of a Dol-
lar-a-Month club Michigan's share of
$131,000 per month will be raised as a
part of the nation wide movement to
save Belgian children.
Terrible conditionsthave existed in
Belgium since August, 1914. At the
time of the war's outbrake the pro-
portion of skilled laborers to the pop-
ulation was greater than in any other
country in the world.
The development of industry had
been so great and population so dense
that the soil of Belgium produced only
a small percentage of the food re-
quired by the inhabitants. With the
outbreak of the war all commerce
instantly stopped and Belgium was
soon denuded of the products which
could be exported in return for food.
People on Half Rations
To meet this desperate situation a
commission was formed in England
with Herbert C.sHoover, an American
mining engineer, as chairman.
Through a system of organization
which reached every part of Belgium
the Hoover commission undertook,
under a working arrangement with
the German and British governments,
to feed the Belgian people during the
period of the war.
With the utmost efforts the commis-
sion has been able to supply to the in-
habitants a ration just under 50 per
cent of the food required by the norm-
al human being. Adults have suffer-
ed, but survive. The growing child-
ren, who since August, 1914, have had
less than one-half of what a child re-
quires,sare becoming stunted in both
body and mind from gradual starva-

State Troops Farm Land at M. A. C.
Lansing, Mich., May 9.-Just to show
the people of the state that soldiers
can farm as well as fight-and inci-
dentally to provide themselves with
rations for the long hard winter to
come, the picked company of Michi-
gan state troops which is quartered
on a 90-acre tract at the Michigan
Agricultural college, will farm 40
acres of the land. Potatoes and other
food crops will be put in and it is ex-
pected their efforts will go a long
way toward feeding them this winter.
The remaining 60 acres will be util-
ized for barracks, stables, and drill

seldom found in these days, the ability
to make a bed as a bed should be1

art. Thirty women students at the,

Plan Supplementary Meal
The only possible remedy is to add
to the daily ration of less than one-
half the normal food of a child a
supplementary meal, scientifically
planned and proportioned. This sup-
plementary meal consists of a bis-
cuit with a little lard in it' and a
small sup of cocoa with some phos-
phatine and milk when possible. Scan-
ty as this added ration iq, it will be
enough to tide the child over for the
The cost of the supplementary meal
is three cents per day for each child.
The number of children declining
through starvation is 1,250,000. The
state of Michigan is asked to provide
$131,000 per month to furnish the sup-
plementary meal for-131,000 children
in and about Brussels.
