ALL ARE ' ARTISTIC Bronze Doors at Gateway, Indian Statue, or Gates at Conlev Entrance. A memorial to the many students and former students who have rep resented the University in the World's War has been spoken of often. It has taken concrete form in the minds of some. Among the ideas suggested are three thought out by Horace Major of the department of landscape garden ing. The first and simplest of these is two bronze doors to replace the wood en ones now in the gate posts at the Eighth street entrance to the campus. These doors would be of heavy bronze, at the top of which would be an eagle rampant Below the eagle would be a wreath or spray of laurel. One door would be dedicated to those who have not returned from the war, the other to those who have. A second suggestion is that a statue be placed at the head of Hitt street, in front of Rothwell Gymna...

The following account of an air raid on London is an abridged translation of an article by a German airship commander in a recent issue of the Koelnlsche Volkszeitung: An air raid on London, the finest I have experienced up to now,' forms a capital example of a well-led attack. The various air ships on their way to England meet in the neighberhood of the Dutch Islands. I kept a straiRlit course from Win- lerton to London, fand during the! whole oyage over English territory I did not see a single light, although the air was quite clear. One can im agine what it would mean to entirely obscure such a tract of country. It means the crippling of all the railway traffic in the district. We hae often heard that trains, especially in the neighborhoods subject to air-raids, have been dreadfully delayed. Directly the airship reaches the outer circle of the city, she is sur rounded by...
