Local Corda Fratres Association Will
Edit Publicatiou, Iiitended to
Boost University.
A Michigan number of the Cosmo-
politan Student, the official publication
of the Corda Fratres Association of
Cosmopolitan students, printed at
Madison, Wisconsin, will make its ap-
pearance in November. The number
is edited by a staff appointed from the
local chapter, and contain: several ar-
ticles dealing with current topics of
interest to the foreign students attend-
ing American universities, and is il-
lustrated mainly by photographs of the
university campus.
This is the first attempt of the local
chapter to give wide prominence to
the University of Michigan among for-
eign students in this country, and it is
expected that the appeal in behalf of
the university will be followed by an
awakened interest in the universities
of the mid-west, and the University of
Michigan in particular.

Prof. Cross Believes They Will Aid
Alumni Organizations.
That the extension lectures which
the university is now giving, <will
prove to be a stimulus to the forming
of alumni organizations throughout
the state is the opinion of Prof. H. R.
Cross of the fine arts department. At
Grand Haven, where he spoke last Fri-
day, his lecture gathered together the
Michigan men in that vicinity. Yellow
chrysanthemums were worn, and af-
ter he had finished his address, many
Michigan songs were sung with gen-
uine football enthusiasm. Former
Regent George Far and a number of
resident alumni are hoping to crystal-
lize the enthusiasm into a true Mich-
igan organization.

Excitement runs high among stu-
dents in the university who come from
the region which is now the scene of
strife between the Turks and the allied
forces of Bulgarians, Greeks, and Ser-
vians, on account of the present cr.isis
in the situation. Adrianople, the key to
a direct attack on Constantinople, is
momentarily expected to fall into the
hands of the allies, and every move-
ment of the armies is watched with
anxiety by those students here whose
families are near the center of activi-
ty, and who know not what catastro-
phe a sudden turn of fortune may
bring them.
The uncertainty of the mails, and
the exaggerated reports of the war in
the newspapers serve to increase their
uneasiness. One gathers the impres-
sion, when talking with the men from
the territory of the distant war, that
their whole thought is absorbed in the
conflict, that they long to return home
and take up arms in the cause of their
people against the ancient foe, and
avenge the oppression of centuries.
The average American student per-
haps does not comprehend the magn-
tude of the struggle now going on. It
is only when one converses with the
men whose interests are directly at
stake,and learns that more soldiers are
now engaged in fighting around Adri-
anople alone than took part in the
battle of Gettysburg, that one begins to
comprehend what the war means to
the foreign students here.
One of the Bulgarian students in'
the university has already left. R. S.
Gergandoff, '15E, of Timsut, Bulgaria,+
suddenly departed from Ann Arbor
Monday and no one seems to know his
whereabouts, but it is said by his fel-
low countrymen here that he has left
for the scene of the hostilities. Other
students will most likely follow him
if the situation grows worse.

At Meeting Held Last Evening, the
Student Body Went on Record
as Opposing Solicitation
of Funds.
Feel That Sentiment on Canipus is
Opposed to Getting Money
by Tag Day.
In a spirited meeting last night, the
student council went on record as op-
posed to tag day methods for the pur-
pose of sending the band on an annual
trip, and in favor of the expense being
met by the athletic association. The
action will be presented to the associ-
ation in the form of resolutions.
The question of the band's trip to
Pennsy was brought up at the last
meeting of the council at which time'
a committee was appointed to consult
with Athletic Director Bartelme in re-
gard to the amount the association
would appropriate toward the sum
necessary to finance the trip. As a
result of the conference, the associa-
tion promised $200, a sum $650 short
of the required amount.
Before adopting the resolutions, the
matter was threshed out pro and con,
resulting in an almost unanimous qon-
clusion that the student body felt it
the duty of the athletic association to
provide for the trip, and that any at-
tempt to raise the money by a tag
day would not only be unjust, but lia-
ble to failure.
The motion passed follows: That a
committee be appointed to draw up
resolutions expressing the opinion of
the student council as governed by
the sentiment gathered about the cam-
pus, that it is the duty of the athletic
association to provide funds for send-
ing the band to Pennsylvania-, and that
these resolutions shall be presented to
the athletic association.


Only Union Members Will Be Permitted, as Membership is Much Larger Than
Capacity of C ombined Gyms.-

Committees for the big Michigan
Union football smoker, to be held in
the combined gyms November 19, were
announced last evening by President

Edward Kemp.

Preparations will be"

commenced at once for the event.
As previously announced, this year's
smoker will probably be open to Union
members only. Inasmuch as the ca-
pacity of the two gyms is much less
than the total Union membership to
date, it is thought that officials of that
organization will be justified in exclud-
ing others from the smoker.
The following will have charge of
the affair:
W. Campbell Trible, '13, general
chairman, Homer L. Heath, treasurer.
Committee on arrangements-Ed-
ward Lazear, '13E, chairman; John

Brennan, '14E; F. Vincent Burrows,
'14L; Patrick Crowe, '15; Thomas
Doyle, '13; R. W. Elliott, '15E; Lloyd
L. Hughes, '14; Ogden Johnson, '15E;
Frank Kohler, '14; P. D. Koontz, '14;
Max Kuhr, '13; M. W. Watkins, '14;
Carl White, '14.
Speakers' committee-Ralph Snyder,
'14L, chairman; W. B. Shaw, Fac.;
George Burgess, '13L.
Program committee-Walton Fisk,
'13E, chairman; Paul Crane, '14; Paul
Doherty, '14L; Ed Howell, '13E.
Publicity committee-H. Beach Cars
penter, '14, chairman; Maurice Milli-
gan, '14; Lester Rosenbaum, '14.
Finance committee-Eben Lane, '13,
chairman; Ralph Conger, '14; Waldo
Fellows, '14; Henry Parsons, '15; R.
W. Selby, '13M.


Action on the cases of the two st
dents involved in the assault case
Saturday night will be taken toda
when the heads of the engineering d
partment will look ii.to the matt
in an effort to find just what conne
tion Paul H. Vincent, '15E, had in t
trouble. An investigation will also
made by the heads of the literary d
partment Thursday or Friday. It
said, however, that it will only be
the way of an investig tion, for not
ing may be done until after the tri
is held on November 9. So far, r
warrants have been asked for any st
dents, and Lawrence Nagel, the Er
traveling man with the party, wl

Harry Minckley, the photographe
who resented the alleged insult to h
wife by the students and began ti
affray by knocking one of the offen

actions against those under suspicio
claiming $1,000.00 damages, and it
also expected that criminal procee
ings may be entered against them b
fore Nagel's trial is held.

cate himself either before the facul
or the police, and has not been locate
