FOR WAR AIMS COURSE
The Issues of the war will be made
a living reality to each man, If the
Ideais cf the men at the head of the
war aims course are realized. The
course, as planned, offers three hours
a week for nine months. For the first
three months, a historical sketch of
the origin of-the war, our participa
tion In it, and, as much as possible, a
history of the war Itself, will be pre
sented. The course is especially hard
to plan because men wi!l be removed
at the end of each three month period,
yet the government asks that the men
who only have three or six months of
the course, instead of nine months,
have a well rounded Conception of the
flans for the last six months of the
oun-e are being made In Washington.
The political, philosophical and liter
lry Ideals of different warring na
Uons will probably je ftudl'-ti. It na-.
leen proposed that this course co-or
Jiuate with the rhetoric classes, and
hat the subjects for themes be se
lected from the subjett matter of the
war a'ms course.
About 1C00 men wi;i take this
ourfce. They v. ill be divided Into ten
lecture divisions, wiih two lectures a
week. The lectures wMI be delivered
' Professors R. E. Cochran. E. I

Old Cases Are Isolated, While
Only a Few New Cases
The threatened epidemic of Span
Ihh influenza Is now- coming under the
control of the authorities at the Unl
versity. About one hundred and fifty
cases were reported Wednesday even
ing at the meeting of the committee
of health and sanitation In the Com
mercial club rooirs. Of these cases,
seventy-five are among the men In
the University training detachment
stationed at the ftate farm, on the
ciiy campus and at the Hayward mil
itary academy. The others are such
aes as have come to the attention
of Dr. Ewing and Dr. Clapp. Abso
lutely new cases are not being report
e.l as fast as they were during the
first few days of the week, and indi
cations are that they will be fewer
frrM now on. Men of the cases
which have been reported are isolated
4 nd are receiving the best of at'.en
tion. Only In a very few instance
is there uny danger of a serious re
sult Captain P.uck of the University
train'ng detachment. Captain Hamil
ten and Captain Mac-Ivor of the S. A
T. C. and Dr. WOson of the state
board cf health. Dr. Chapman, city
phyfefcian. Dr. Clapp of the University
and Dr. Bailey, who presided at the
meeting at the Commercial cluh, dis
cussed plans to cope with the situa
tion. They decided that one of the
best ways to prevent the spread of the
contagion is for everyone to keep
himself in a state of general gool
health, arsd above all not to become so
glarmed over the rumors beard every
where, that he will be in a more sus
ceptfble condition. With the present
measures which are being taken to
care for those who are sick, there Is
no apparent danger of the disease de
vek-ping into a serious epidemic.
There U now a temporary infirm
ary at the University which will ade
quately accommodate ninety patients,
and the authorities at the state farm
have given assurance that they will
turn over all the buildings needed to
care for the cases that may arise. The
committee patted a resolution asking
that the Commercial club confer with
the University authorities concerning
the establishment of a more perma
nent Infirmary for the University.
To All S. A. T. C. and S. N.
T. C. Students of the
Waiting for physical ex
amination and induction
is no excuse for non-attendance
to classes. It is
to be hoped that every stu
dent will, without fail, be
at his post and no excuses
for absences will be given
after Monday, October 7,
except for illness in bed.
