preferred against him. This was ne-
cessitated by a technical mistake, for

SYMPATHY FROM DEAN EFFINGER
The body of Alfred Lindner, '16,
whose death occurred early yesterday

Dean J. R. Effinger, who visited

was a sad case, but I have been im-
pressed by the spirit shown by the

ed to assist in the nursing. Everybody
seemed willing and anxious to help."
The fresman literary class, of which
Lindner was a member, decided yes-
terday to send flowers as a mark of

day of rapid improvement, was the
climax of a remarkable battle for

TOM MAJOR FLEES FROM CITY.
Police Fail to Apprehend Eccentric
Novelist for Distributing Circulars
After a baffling search instituted by
the police department since Monday
to apprehend Toh Major for distrib-
uting circulars said to be of a suggest-
ive nature on the campus and in that
vicinity, the police believe that he has
sought refuge in flight from the city.
They placed a close espionage on
Tom's favorite haunts in this city, but
the eccentric novelist, and man of
many cognomens proved too wily to be
entrapped, and eluded the vigilanceof
It is believed that Major was tipped
off to the police's activity in his behalf
by well-meaning friends, and after put-
ting the ability of the police depart-
ment to a fair test to locate him, he
left before Ann Arbor became too
warm for his further sojourn.

WORK ON MICHIGANENSIAN
IS PROGRESSING RAPIDLY.
This year's Michiganensian is pro-
gressing remarkably 'well according
to the year book editors. The work
is much farther advanced than at this
time last winter, in regard to both the
editorial and the business sides of it,
and the outlook is exceedingly bright
for putting out an unusually fine book.
A number of artists are hard at work
on the various heads which have been
assigned, and almost all the advertis-
ing contracts are in.
Copy in the fraternity section of the
book must be in by 6:00 o'clock to-
night, so all organizations of that
charactei which have not seen to this
should do so at once. The only crit-
icism that editor Newhall has to make
of the way things are going is that
the seniors are slower than usual in
getting their pictures taken for the
book. The pictures should be taken
or at least dates should be made with
the photographer at once.
FIRST NUMBER OF TECHNIC
TO APPEAR DECEMBER 1.
The first number of the Michigan
Technic for the year will be distrib-
uted on December 1. The book will
contain a survey of the work of Prof.
H. E. Riggs, the new head of the civil
engineering department, written by
Prof. C. T. Johnson. There will also
be an article on "Up-to-Date Photogra-
phy" by Ward Davidson, '13E. The
general make-up of the' magazine this
year will be much the same as last.

FORESTRY FACULTY RETURN
FROM M IICHIIGAN CONVENTION
Professors Filibert Roth, 6. L. Spon-
sler, P. S. Lovejoy, and Mr. L. J. Young
of the forestry faculty and H. Pottin-
ger, president of the forestry club re-
turned to Ann Arbor yesterday from
the annual convention of the Michigan
State Forestry association which was
held Wednesday and Thursday in Sag-
inaw. All of the men took an active
part in the business and discussions of
the convention. Prof. Lovejoy was
elected secretary of the association
and Michigan will be further repre-
sented in the administration by the
choice of Regent Junius K. Beal as
one of the directors.
Prof. Roth tooksoccasion to make
clear his stand in the little controver-
sy he has had with Chief Moore of the
United States weather bureau, There
seems to be a difference of opinion'
as to whether or not forest growth
tends to prevent ,floods and washouts.
The great majority of scientists are of
the opinion that such growth does in
a great measure help to prevent floods
while it seems that a few scientists and
a number of politicians hold that it
does not. Chief Moore has taken this
latter view and has had some litera-
ture published and sent out to the va-
rious . weather stations. Prof. Roth
simply stated his opinion and he let it
be thoroughly known that it did not
agree with Chief Moore's.
The formal proclamation announc-
ing the annual day of thanksgiving has
been issued by Governor Chase S. Os-
born and is ad follows:'
"Another year has been added to the
golden scroll of Michigan. Our people
have been recipients of God's bounty,
His nercy and His love. The state has
been spared famine and pestilence.
There has been a wholesome awaken-.
ing of public conscience. Civic ideals
were never clearer and higher. Our
people have an increased reverence
for the laws of God and man. Every
fibre of heart and head thrills with
gratefulness to the Divine Father.
"Therefore, I, Chase S. Osbori, gov-
ernor of Michigan, for the people of
this state, having in mind the mani-
fold blessings of God, do proclaim
Thursday the twenty-eighth day of
November as a day of feasting 'and
prayer and thanksgiving to ,God for
His goodness, His protection and His'

COACH DOUGLAS WILL REMAIN
HERE DURING WINTER MONTHS
The closing of the interclass foot-
ball series does not necessarily mean
the end of Coach Douglas' work for the
year. As long as the soccer game is
played he will be in full charge, and it
is not likely that the season will close
before the latter part of December or
at least until snow prevents the con-
tinuance of the sport, During the
winter months Douglas will take the
class - basketball management under'
his wing and organize the various de-
n"rtment hockey teams.
