By an overwhelming majority of
1,855 out of a total of 2,037 ballots, the
students by referendum yesterday sig-
nified their desire that the athletic as-
sociation should bear the expense of
sending the band on its annual trip.
Balloting in the seven departments
was slow at first, but as noon drew
near°it became brisk, and the rush
was fairly, on when the polls closed
leading those in charge to believe that
if the time for balloting had been
lengthened so as to include part of the
afternoon nearly every student in the
university would have polled a ballot.
Since the board in control of athlet-
ics will .not meet until after the Cor-
nell game, it is too late to look for the
sending of the band to Pennsylvania
this year by the athletic association.
With the council and the band backed
by the student body, decisive against
student subscriptions as a means to
this end, the band will not go, unless
aid is offered by some unexpected
The next meeting of the board in
control of athletics will be looked for-°
ward to with great interest, as the
question as to whether the university
is to be represented by a band in fu-
ture years, rests in the balance with
the association, the judge..
The total number of ballots cast by'
departments was:

Editor, The Michigan Daily:-
The board of regents on December
13, 1907, passed the following resolu-
The board in control of athletics.I
shall have full control.of all questions
pertaining to athletics except as here-
inafter provided. There shall be a fin-
ance comimttee consisting of the chair-
man of the board, the director of out-
door athletics and the treasurer of the
athletic association of the University
of Michigan, which committee shall
have general control over all matters
connected with the receipts and dis-
bursement of all moneys received by
board, but said committee shall not ex-
pend over $200.00 without the approv-
al of the board. There shall be an ex-
ecutive committee of the board of con-
trol, consisting of the chairman of
the board, the director of outdoor ath-
letics and a third member of the board
elected by the board, which committee
shall have power to act upon emer-
geny matters between meetings of the
board, to be subsequently ratified by
the board."
The committee of the student council
handed me the council's resolution,
Thursday, October 30, and I asked
them to return Friday evening, Octo-
ber 31.
On that date, I consulted the other
two members of the executive commit-
tee of the board, and the committee de-
cided that $200.00 was all that they
would authorize as a contribution from
the athletic association. Their reason
for taking this action may be summed
up as follows:
A resolution of the board of regents,
(Continued on page 4.)

Only two regulars, Almendinger and
Cole, were used in the scrimmage and
the rest of the team was composed of
second choice men. Boyle was out at
the field but was not in uniform as the
little Irishman has a cracked rib that
is somewhat painful and scrimmage
is not conducive of comfort for him.
It seems almost safe to say that Yost
has apparently found the combination
he has been looking for and it is doubt-
ful if there will' be any material
changes in the lineup for -the Penn
contest. The fight between Boyle, Col-
lette, and Hu'ghitt for the other half
still waxes warm and just who will
start here at the Pennsy battle is hard
to say. Hughitt was used last night
but that cannot be taken as a sure in-
dication, for Boyle is still slightly in-
jured. With the exception of this one
job, the berths seem to be all claimed
and unless Yost makes another elev-
enth-hour shift the personnel of the
team appears fixed.
There will probably be a scrimmage
today and perhaps Wednesday, though
chances favor a signal drill on the lat-
ter day. The team will leave for Penn-
sy over the Ann Arbor and Lake Shore
lines at 7:28 o'clock Wednesday even-
ing and will go direct to Wayne where
they will be quartered until aturday
morning when they will go into Phila-
delphia. There will be ample oppor-
tunity at Wayne for a signal drill on
Friday and there the final polish will
be given. The personnel of the squad
who will make the trip has not been
given out as yet.
Those who have seen the Quakers
play this year state that Mercer is not
showing what he did last year due in
the main to a weak line. But Yost is
not regarding those rumors and the
squad is being taught a few tricks that
will stop this gentleman who created
such a sensation here last year. The
Pennsylvania backfield is reputed to be
the strongest in years but judging
from the bear stories sent out from
Ferry field, the line. is a huge joke.
Pennsy has not had a successful sea-
son but it is safe to predict that they
will be better Saturday than at any
time this year and the Wolverines are
in for a tough game.
Prof. Reighard Has Regained Health.
Prof. J. E. Reighard, head of the
zoology department, returned home
last evening after a month's leave of
absence. Most of the time the profes-
sor was taking treatment at the Bat-
tle Creek sanitarium. He is looking

Responding to the demand for in-
formation relative to the progress of
today's presidential election which the
intense interest in the campaign has
created, reports will be received and
announced to the students in six plac-
es this evening. As the vote is expect-
ed to be unusually heavy this year, re-
turns probably will not commence to
come in until about 7:00 o'clock in the
evening and will continue for several
hours after midnight. The telegraph
companies have made special arrange-
ments to handle the reports and quick
service is promised.
The Michigan Union has made elab-
orate plans to furnish the students
with the latest and most complete bul-
letins. A large curtain has been hung
-across the west end of the assembly
hall and returns from the different
states will be thrown upon it. A large
blackboard has also been procured on
which the returns will be tabulated so
as to show the exact standing of each
-candidate and the results of the vote
in each state. The Union will receive
bulletins from both telegraph compa-
nies and will give the returns in detail
exactly as received.
The blackboard system of showing
how the candidates are running will
also be used at Huston's billiard hall.
The pluralities turned in by each state
as well as the electoral vote so controll-
ed will be chalked up as received. Spe-
cial messenger service will bring the
bulletins from Jhe telegraph office and
after being read they will be posted on
the window.
Returns of the election will be an-
nounced at the Majestic theater be-
tween the acts of the -vaudeville per-
formance. The Star theater has also
arranged to give the returns through-
out the evening.
Although the Ann Arbor Times
News will not publish an election ex-
tra this evening, a lantern will be used
to flash the results on a screen across
from their office.. Detroit papers will
have extras on sale in this city late
Several hundred students have left
Ann Arbor during the past few days
to vote in their home towns. The Wil-
son club sent about 15 or 20 members
home for that purpose and the Progres-
sive and Taft organizations also pro-
vided transportation for some of their
members. All those who are away

More than 400 varieties of the crys-
anthemum are reperesented at the ex-
hibit of the first annual flower show,
which is being held in Memorial hall.
There are some very rare specimens
which have been grown under the care
of Professor Hus and Head Gardener
Wiener of the university experimental

Ten neophytes crossed the burning
sands to the pyramids last night inthe
annual election to Sphinx the junior

After the usual initiation a banquet
was served at the Michigan Union.
" Mo" Moseman presided as toastmas-
ter and Professors Wagner, Van Tyne
and HIildner, honorary members re-
sponded to toasts. Short talks were
also made by "Howdy" Wilson, "Cy"

Prof. John R. Allen, Now in Turkey,
Condemns the Manufacturing
Methods of England
and Germany.
Michigan Man is Working at Robert
College, Constantinople, Near
War Center.
Severe criticism of European engi-
neers and their training has been made
by Prof. John R. Allen, head of the
mechanical engineering department,
now in Constantinople, Turkey, in con-
nection with the construction of'Rob-
ert college, England, buildings.
In a letter to Prof. A. C. Anderson,
of the engineering department, he says,
"I have met more poorly trained engi-
neers in Europe than I ever did in
America. Not only does Prof. Allen
condemn engineering methods abroad
but he says, "In electrical work Ger-
Imany is 20 years behind America and
England at least ten years. One can-
not trust manufacturers to make any-
thing right but must go into every de-
tail in ordering an article. As for
American products they are the most
popular here especially the automo-
biles. Even in Constantinople oe can
see the Fords go by.'"
Speaking of the latest war that Tur-
key is involved in Professor Allensays,
"Just now we are having Hell over
here. No attention was paid to the
late war with Italy, but the present
war has disturbed the whole country.
The government has sent all able bod-
ied men to the front. We have lost 50
men on construction work in the last
In describing some of the amusing
features of the war he writes, "Last
week the government wanted whips so
they sent out a squad of soldiers and
took the whips from every 'carriage
and wagon driver in sight. The cab-
men went on a strike due to the heavy

taxes assessed them and took all their
vehicles off. the streets of Constanti-
nople. The government relented, and
agreed to reduce the tax if the cabmen.
would bring back their vehicles. They
did. Then the astute Turks confis-
cated all of the horses."
In conclusion Prof. Allen writes,
"The Bosphorous is intensely inter-
esting with its many cruisers, torpedo
boats and varied colors. In fact the
Bosphorous will be the only thing I
shall miss in Turkey." He also adds
that the higher classed Turks are ex-
cellent gentlemen.
Prof. Alen was granted an extra
year leave of absence by the board of
regents and will not be back until the
early nart of 1914.
