UTICA, N. Y., Oct. 30.-James Schcolcraft Sherman, vice-presiden7t of the
United States, died at his home here at 9:42 this evening. Mr. Sherna's
death resulted from Bright's Disease with which he had been ill since August
21. Although the vice-president had been unconscious almost all of today,
physicians prolonged his life for sometime by administering oxygen. Ife lea
ves a widow and three children whowere present at the bedside when
death came.
Mr. Sherman was elected to the vice-presidency four years ago, having pre-
viously been a prominent figure in the politics of New York State. He was
renominated for the office he held at the time of his death, by the Republican
National convention which met at Chicago in June. When the time for the
formal acceptance of the nomination c ame, in August, he was advised by his
physician against participating in the event.

The arrangements for the seat sale
for the Cornell game, which were an-
nounced today, offer a novelty in that
the choice of seats for students has'
been arranged according to classes,
with the women slipping in between
the juniors and sophs. The sale will
open Monday when the seniors and
graduates will be allowed to pick
seats, followed Tuesday by the juniors.
On Wednesday the women students
and faculty have the edge, with two
sections set apart solely for them. For
the next two days the sophs and fresh-
men have the choice and after that
time it is open to anybody.
Holders of student books will be al-
lowed to reserve a total of seven seats,
one in exchange for their coupon and
six reserved full priced seats. But it
is emphatically stated that the reser-
vation in exchange for the coupon
must be in the rooting section and
cannot be taken along side of any
other reservations. Neither can it be
traded in on any other seat. In ex-
planation of this ruling the athletic
association has issued the following
"Why cannot a plan be devised which
would permit the holder of the season
book to purchase two dollar reserva-
tions adjacent to that received in ex-
change for his coupon ?" is a question
often asked of the athletic authorities.
It is only natural that this privilege
should be desired by a great many stu-
dents and not at all surprising that
they should feel on first thought that
the athletic association is taking an
arbitrary position in declaring such a
plan impossible.
We believe we can convince the stu-
dents that such an arrangement would
be so cumbersome and complicated as
to be absolutely impracticable.
There are 15,282 reservations in the;
north and south stands fo Ferry field.
Our financial settlement with Cornell1
provides that all student admissions
shall be settled for on the basis of $1.

"American as well as Foreign Student,
Should Recognize the Import-
ance of Conflict," Says
President Emeritus
Fears That Violent Massacres May Re-
sult Should Turks Become
"Great interest should be taken by
the students of the university over the
Balkan war," declared Dr. James B.
Angell yesterday. "I sympathize with
the foreign students who come from
the affected territory and who natural-
ly have great anxiety over the welfare
of their people."
Dr. Angell is well acquainted with
the customs and conditions of the
Turks, having served as minister to
Turkey in 1897-98.
"The Turks are usually a peaceable
people but when they are excited over
religious matters they become unreas-
onable and uncontrollable. Should an
army of one million Turks, after the
war, become imbued with the fighting
spirit their hatred toward the Chris-
tians would cause them to commit out-
rageous massacres upon the Armeni-
ans. Shortly before I went to Turkey
in 1897, atrocities against the Armeni-
ans were at their height. An number
of them were serving as guards and at
an order from a head of a Moslem the-
ological school the students seized
clubs and struck down the servants
like sheep.'
"Failure on the part of Turkey to
discontinue its oppression of the Mace-
donians may be considered as the pri-
mary cause of the outbreak," contin-
ued Dr. Angell. "The war is a serious
one and may involve all of the great
powers of Europe. The fact that Rus-
sia has its eyes on the advantageous
position of Constantinople, and Aus-
tria for an outlet to the Aegean sea is
well known and the powers will not
let them step in."
"I do not think that the war will
last longer than a month owing to the
cold weather. Also the mud becomes
very thick, and this combined with thei
weather make it impossible to carry
aA military operations. I am looking
for a big battle soon that will settle'
the trouble."
"Yes, American students should take
in interest in the war and comprehendI
fully the importance of it," concluded
the venerable president-emeritus.
Soccer football practice will be held
at Ferry field under the direction of
representatives from Detroit

Governor Wilson wins the straw bal-
lot. Leading the race at the start of
the contest, but falling behind for the
last three days, the supporters of the
New Jersey governor rallied to the
standard of their candidate, castng
over 300 votes, and giving the former
college president a total of 994 taloes
and the contest.
Roosevelt takes second place wiTh
972 votes. The progressive leader
made a fine fight for first honors, only
the overwhelming support of the Wil-
son men on the last day, relegating
him to the runner-up position. Presi-
dent Taft, with 173 votes is third, an
Debs and Chafin follow in order with
56 and seven counts.
The result was not entirely unex-
pected, as the Wilson supporters had
bepn keeping quiet. for the last few
days, and the number of ballots that
were cast for him during that time
were less than the vote of the first
three days, and the showing on the
final day showed the real strength of

The total vote was 2204, approxi-

Student opinion is decidedly in favor
of abolishing the yearly Tag Day for
1h0 benefit of the annual band trip.
ruzra ment students on the campus
ere interviewed by The Michigan
Daily yesterday and the opinion is al-
most unanimously in favor of having
e athletic association pay for the
t"ri", or if it is not able to do this, to
havW some permanent means establish-
ed by which the baud may be sent on
a trip every year without having to
resort to a tag day to secure funds.
These expressions of opinion are given
below, together with the statement
:sued Last evening by Athletic Direct-
or Philip G. Bartelme saying that the
airociation would not be able to send
he band to Penusy. The reasons giv-
en were that the association has a
-r at increase in its expenses this
year and as it does not consider that
e band is purely an athletic affair,
he asociation has no reason for pay-
iag the total expense which wsould be.
nurred onl such a trip.
The st-tements follow:
Edward C. Kemp: "Every student
ays a $5.00 athletic tax for the gen-
a purpose of supporting Michigan
thletics and making them successful
t every way. Any use of : athletic
e nds which has the purpose and effect
f making our athletics successful is
legitimwte and proper expenditure
id ought to be made by the athletic
urociation, the trustees of tht fund,
ending the band to the big game with
ic team is undeniably a most efficient
eans of bringing victory and success
0 our athletes and is a very proper
em of expenditure in the athletic as-
otiation budget. The students are
naninmously in favor of the expendi-
ia and the athletic association
hould either accede to their wishes or
how; cause. It is presumptious of the
letd 'association to expect the stu-
entss to pay the expense out of ther
un pockets. The $5.00 tax was to
over AL athletic expense."
Lon H. Barringer, president of stu-
ent council: "I am not prepared to
e that the association should de-
ry tho band's expenses, but some
ermanent means should be devised
>r raising the funds for this purpose.
T0e do not care to see the band go out
< m>ig for their trip by a Tag Day
~',ery- fall."
Edw'ard I. Saer: "Emphatically, if
ie athletic association can afford to
tad the band to Pennsy, it should. I
ae n-mt in favor of a Tag Day unless
is absolutely necessary."
John Coolidge: "We should be sure
at the athletic; association is in a
m dition - to pay for tiis trip before
e insis on having it do so. The ex-
)nditure for the new clubhouse and
her improvements have made a big
,am of extra expense which should be
