been received here that the Univer

tion necessary to obtain a certificate
admitting to first-aid service.
The course will be organized un-j
der the supervision of the Seattle
Red Cross and will be composed of
ten lectures delivered by a local
physician and women sent out by the
Red Cross. Lessons will be given
on the handling of wounded patients
and how to treat flesh wounds, frac
tures and bruises. The prominent j
part gases play in modern warfare!
will be discussed and various means
of neutralizing the poison will be
taught. The making and use of ban-i
dages and the care of a patient be- j
fore he reaches the doctor will be
explained.

THE HAGUE. Feb. 15.?The do- ?
portations of Belgian workmen con
tinue, but at a slightly lower rate
than previously, according to infor

source. It is said that the deporta
tions from Brussels now are being
made at tlie rate of about 350 men ,
dally. Many of those men, it is (
said, are not idlers, but skilled work- <
men who have been engaged for at |
least a part of their time in their
| trade.
In some provinces the Belgians, it
I is said, are adopting methods of pas- j
si ro resistance in efforts to escape
deportation. This resistance takes
the fornr of failing to appear at the
appointed place for examination. Out
of 1.700 men called in five communes
n jar Malines not more than one-half
' presented themselves. Thereupon the
German military authorities arrested
three prominent men in each com
mune, holding them as hostages un
til the appearance of the absentees,
who, in the meantime were hunted
by squads of soldiers. In Brussels,
many of the summoned men who
failed to appear now are in hiding.

lief Comnilssionft members of pro
