In spite of the discouraging weather;
more than 600 persons crowded New-
berry hall last night to witness the
first of the series of "National Nights"
given by the Corda Fratres-Cosmopoli-
tan association. The hall was quaint-
ly decorated with the American and
Japanese national flags, numerous
palms and Japanese lanterns, present-
ing a purely oriental atmosphere.
W. W. Welsh, president of the club,
had charge of the program. In his in-
troductory remarks, President Welsh
outlined the purpose of the club and
what it stands for. "Most people think
that the club consists of the foreign
students only," said the president,
"but it is organized both for American
and foreign students to get together
and solve the misconceptions of differ-
ent peoples, to awaken in the Ameri-
cans a lively interest in the outside
world, and to advocate the ideals of
peace and humanity."
The first number on the program
was a lecture on the scenic beauty of

Out of every football season arises cause for joy, cause for sorrow, cause
for celebration and cause for reflection. In every game lost there arises a
host of critics, a horde of fault finders. And in every game won these self
same hordes and hosts turn hero worshippers. And it is only in the long and
dreary after months that merit finds its place and that talent and worth are
awarded their due. And now that the season is over and" the last enthusiast
has worn out his voice, just as in year s past arises the predominating figure
of Fielding H. Yost, in old style foot-ball, in new style football, in every fea
ture of the game, the master of the master of them all.
Forty-Nine Stores to Reduce Prices
to Members of Michigan
MEMBERSHIP FEE IS NOMINAL.
Forty-nine stores have contracted
with the University of Michigan Co-
operative association, recently estab-
lished, to give its members a five or
ten per cent discount on all purchases
over one dollar.
One merchant in each line of busi-
ness in all three trade centers of Ann
Arbor, and many merchants in De-
troit have agreed to give these reduc-
tions to members of the association.
To become a member of the asso-
ciation, a student must pay a fee of
one dollar. He will then receive the
directory containing the names of the
merchants who give reductions, and
also a card entitling him to purchase
at a discount at these stores, which
will be good until Nov. 15, 1913. This
directory will be out the first of the
This co-operative plan is similar to
the one which has been in vogue at
several eastern universities for many

It is his unequalled genius that lies
behind the unexpected and startling
plays that win games. It is his force,
his intensity that drives the Michigan
squad through long and weary signal
drills, through hard scrimmage and
through fierce battles. Win or loge,
Michigan is his team, no man feels a
lost game so keenly, no man gets so
much satisfaction out of victory.
Years ago New York critics picked
him as the greatest coach in the coun-
try. He has not lost his power, his
reputation or his creative genius. He
knows the new game as he knew the
old. He knows the value of a play.
He -knew the value of that old style
play that beat Pennsylvania in 1911.
He knew the value of those two for-
ward passes that defeated Cornell this
year. He knew the value of that fake
forward pass that made so much
ground for Michigan this year.
Michigan has had its lean years, sad-
dened with a series of defeats. It has
had its harvest years filled with great
victories. But through it all Yost has
been the same, devoting his energy, all
to. the one end.. Go throughout the
country and ask football enthusiasts.
Go to players, to coaches, to critics.
Their answers are the same "You have
Yost. You should win." Ask the old.
grads what they would think of Mich-
igan without Yost. Ask the youngest
freshman or the factulty man. The
two, Michigan and Yost, are insepara-
And so after this year, one of dis-
appointments and yet sweet in its final
victory, his sterling worth slowly
looms up. And in the plans for next
year it is his name that is first men-
tioned. The greatest coach in Amer-
ica today, Fielding H. Yost.
