Mrs. A. A. Stanley Died Abroad.
A sad event of the summer was
the death of Mrs. A. A. Stanley, which
occurred abroad in July. Prof. and
Mrs. Stanley left Ann Arbor in June

have attended the International Con-
ference of Musicians as the Ameri-

by Justice Ritchie at 7 o'clock last

Campus rumor had it yesterday that
a student was under arrest in connec-
tion with the robbery. There seems
to be no basis in truth for the story.
Attaches of the sheriff's office are of
the opinion that the job was done by
expert cracksmen from Toledo.
Miss Tseo Tuchen from Naushang,
China, passed in her registration blank
in the university yesterday as a lit-
medic and earned for herself the sin-
gular distinction of being the first
Chinese woman who was ever enrolled
at Michigan. She intends to pursue
the six year lit-medic course, and
equip herself as a medical missionary.
She will return to her country at the
completion of her course to work
among her people.
Miss Tuchen is not a mediocre
freshman. Her preparatory train-
ing in a mission school in her
own country was followed by a two
.year's c urse of study at Northwest-
ern university.

Cosmopolitan Club Meets Toigit.
The first regular. meeting of the
Cosmopolitan club, the local chapter
of the Association of Cosmopolitan
Clubs of America, will be held in
room D, Law building, tonight at 7:30.
Last year the club had a membership

Franking, of China, recording secre-
tary; M. F. Finley, corresponding sec-

urer and G. R. Gandhi, of Hindusthan,
assistant treasurer. This year an ac-
tive campaign for new members is to
be launched. All students are eligi-
ble for membership and the club hopes
that a goodly number of Americans
will join. .



That hazing, no matter how
mild a form it may take, is to
meet with vigorous repressive
measures at the hands of the
university authorities became
apparent yesterday when sev-
eral members of the sophomore
class were called before the ad-

versity and of the literary de-
partment in connection with
the recent underclass hostili-'

A number of years ago Roller went
out skating on a lake near Manches-

fellow. His companion broke through
the ice and in attempting to rescue
him Roller also fell into the water.
He finally managed to get to safety,
but refused to leave his companion,
who by that time was helpless. With
the aid of a muffler, he succeeded in
getting the lad out of the water, and

Speeches and Songs to Feature
Occasion Which All Should
Judging from the efforts of the Ath-
letic Association, tonight's initial
mass meeting of the year should stir
up a bumper crop of Michigan spirit
and enthusiasm for the game with
Case on Saturday.
Prof. Rich of the engineering de-
partment and J. Fred Lawton, '11 are
the speakers for the evening. Chair-
man Jack Lyman of the athletic board
of directors will probably preside.
"Hap" Haskins will lead the yells,
and Earl Moore will be there when
it's time for the songs. A new song
by J. Fred Lawton and Earl Moore
will be tried out for the first time.
Lyndon, as usual, will be present
with a new bunch of pictures and
cartoons for the lantern'.
Owing to the limited seating capac-
ity of the hall, admission tickets will
be required at the 'door. Members of
the university may secure them from
10 a. in. until 7 p.. m. today at the
athletic association office. All fresh-
,men are especially urged to be pres-
ent. In order that they may be iden-
tified, they must wear their freshman
caps when they secure their tickets.

but for efficiency it is a credit to the
two spirited builders.
The machine was designed and the
metal parts were cast and assembled
in the engineering shops. Everything
