Subscriptions may be left at The Daily
Office, Meyer's or Stolid's Newstand, or

fer a favor by reporting promptly at this
office any failure of carriers to deliver paper.
The Daily Board is under obliga-
tions to the Women's League for in-
vitations to an At Home in honor of
Dr. Mosher, Friday evening, Nov. 20.
While the resignations of President
Prentiss and of Captain Seter from
his directorship aire to be regretted,
the Athletic Association is to be con-
gratulated on the election of two good
men. Especially is the selection of J.
DeForest Richards as president, a
fortunate choice. We predict for the
association a prosperous year under
his administration.
The Daily will come out with a yel-
low and blue edition to celebrate
Thanksgiving. The issue will be eight
pages, four yellow and four blue. It
will be delivered to regular subschib-
ers free of extra charge and will be
sold in Ann Arbor, on the special train
and at the Chicago game. A special
feature will be a collection of songs
and yells for use at the game. With
the co-operation of lthe yellmaster ar-
rangements are being made to use
these before and during the struggle.
Every student is urged to send to the
Daily catchy yells and songs to be
sung to popular tunes. The response
to this request at the time of the De-
troit game was very liberal and it is
honed that it will be so now. Use
your ability and aid in making things
interesting while the team fights for
the championship.

English at Harvard. _
The following from the Washington
Post makes interesting reading and
presents a question that is of import-
once to educators:

"Last week the Overseers announced
to all concerned that the day of toler-
