Holds to Command Such Fine
Men Is Honor For Any
Lieutenant John Clark Burgard, mem
ber of the class of 1916. now Hmrenant
in the 362nd Infantry. 91st division, sti
tionod “Somewhere in France.” has
written of his experiences to University
"I have had a very pleasant trip
across the states and the Atlantic and
across Europe. It was very interesting
with the ir.cn and I have seen and had
many interesting sights and oxpenonvs
as well as pathetic and proviking ones.
It is all to be expected in this game of
‘Swat the Hun.’ That would be a good
title for a Hodge or Sweetser course.
France Seems Quaint.
“IVe are billeted in a very beautiful
village in a very pretty and interesting
section of France. The peasants’ dress,
customs, houses, etc., are all very quaint.
They are about 200 years behind the
times and. believe me. 1 will be glad to
get away from here, which will be soon,
and look for doings of the 91st for if
they don’t make a name for themselves.
I’ll miss my guess.
“We have sure worked like thunder
since arriving. It makes our work at
Lewis seem like play and now the cur
tain is drawing and the finishing touches
are being put ou our sixteen months of
preparation and I can hardly wait to get
in the game. We have as fine a lot of
men as any officers could wish for and
I personally consider it an honor to fight
with them.
Fred Kiddle Near.
I received a letter the other day from
Fred Kiddle. He is sergeant in the Ord
nance Corps not very far away, but we
can't make connections. Everett May is
in my regiment and we are the best of
friends. I had supper with him last eve

I Girls Imagination
Plus Error Creates
Physics Phenomenon
Have you an imagination? Would i
lead you to mistake some other sub
stance for hypo and then to draw an on
tirely erroneous conclusion as to it:
properties? Or, do you know whai
hypo is?
Y\ bother you do or not. here is the
story: it happened in the physics lab
oratory and the victims were girls. Th<
syllabus said to measure temperature ol
hypo crystals and aho of some plain
I water in a test tube; it said also, next
! to mix the hypo and the water and take
its temperature. There was no instruet
i or around, but surely that white stuff
! *u the beaker was hypo—no, they didn’t
j taste it, it might have killed them.
temperature of water and crystals
was taken and then reading recorded
and then the two substances were mixed
"See the mercury fall," exclaimed one
of the girls. " 1'liat's the conclusion" re
joined tlie other. ‘‘Hypo makes the
temperature; fall."
Hut there entered a doubt; that hypo
looked uncannily like plain table salt,
it did indeed. One girl ventured the
tiniest speck on the tip of her tongue
‘It tastes like table salt."
"Why, it is table salt." was the ver
dict. Then the girls took another look
at the thermometer. The mercury had
not budged.
Ana Monday’s 8 O’Clocks Will Be
After Daylight.
All clocks and watches must be turned
back one hour Sunday morning. The
“daylight saving" law, which was en
acted by congress last spring will be
void after “ o clock Sunday morning, and
Time will be normal again.
The overworked O. T. C-, the ambi
tious S. A. T. C-, the much tried though
ever patient professor, and, of course, the
busy college women—all may have an
extra hour s rest Sunday morning.
Eleven o'clock will be 11 o’clock.
And then, on Monday, the students
will not have to get up before, daylight
to make their S o’clock on time
