The students got into a

which twenty-three were arrested.

A Fair in the Armory.
Miss Viele, a daughter of Gen.
Viele, of New York City, pro-
poses in the near future to hold a
fair in the Armory. The pro-
ceeds will be devoted to the pur-
poses of a ward in the new hospi-
tal at Ann Arbor for students.
Since the hopes of the University
for a hospital on the Campus from
the McGraw-Fiske funds have
been defeated, it is now thought
best to get accommodations in
the hospital at the University of
Michigan. Miss Viele, who
comes to give this fair, is the
manager for the Fresh Air fund
for children, and has devoted her-
self to philanthropic interests.
Further particulars will be given
later.---Cornell Sun.
