ly by the Conference schools. Michi-
gan's boycott, whiph has been in force
since the winter of 1910-1911, was con-
demned by all. It was declared to be
fairly tyrannical and not within the
keeping of good sportsmanship. While;
all of the editors favor the return of
Michigan to the "fold," they do not
feel that the Wolverines should be
subjected to a "freeie out" game if
they cannot see their way clear to en-
ter the Conference again.
Mutterings of ridicule were current
when this meeting was first announc-
ed, but with its session today they
have changed to expressions of won-
der. That this plan and meeting,
conceived by students and put into
effect by the efforts of a single college
daily, should reach maturity,-and a
maturity that amounts to something,
-is almost beyond the comprehen-
sion of the sceptics of college journal-
ism. Its results today are conceded'
to be the biggest triumph of college
newspapers, and its work is bound to
be watched with interest by Chicago
STUDENTS ARE ENGAGED IN

Members of Sociological Class Study
Conditions Among the
The Associated Charities of Detroit
has called to its aid students enrolled
in the sociology class conducted by
Prof. Charles H. Cooley, to make per-
sonal investigations of vagrancy, and
conditions under which many of the
dwellers in the poorer quarters of De-
troit live. The evidence obtained by
the student investigators will be com-
piled by the Associated Charities
for statistical purposes, and the stu-
dents will be required by Prof. Cooley
to avail themselves of their observ-
ations in preparing their regular t-he-
"The investigations being conducted
in Detroit are entirely voluntary on
the part of the students assigned to
the work," said Prof. Cooley. "I call-
ed for volunteers some time ago, and
about 40 offered their service. I se-
lected five students, giving preference
to those residing in Detroit, because I
thought the research work would be
of value to them, since it was conduct-
ed in their home city. They will make
individual investigations, and will not
be restricted. They go to Detroit
whenever time permits, and gather
facts independent of ,each oth zer."
FRESH MEDICS HOLD FIRST

Work on, the new campus fire main
is progressing rapidly and it is ex-
pected that it will be completed next
month. On account of the large tun-

employed in the construction of the

over or under the tunnels, in order
not to conflict with them..
The force for the new main is to

One good at least has been accom-
plished by the new football rules, if
the statistics compiled by The Detroit
News, regarding the injuries and
deaths as a result of the gridiron ac-
tivities this fall, are accurate. These
figures show only 10 deaths in the
country as compared with 14 in the
season of 1911.
Not a single college fatality has
been recorded. Physicians did not
attribute football as a cause of the
death of a member of the Yale squad
early in the season, so the college
game has a clean record.
The statistics follow:
At the Webster-Adelphi debate last
night, Paul B. Blanshard, '14, J. S.
McElroy, '131,, and Sol Blumrosen,
'13L, were chosen as members of the
team, which, with those selected at
the Jeffersonian-Alpha Nu debate last
Wednesday night, will represent
Michigan in the inter-collegiate debat-
es with Chicigo and Northwestern.

CHICAGO, [LL., November 29.-
Michigan and her relations with the
Western Conference were not definite-
ly settled at the meeting of that body
at the Auditorium here today. In
fact, no statement regarding the true
trend of the session could be secured.
The meeting was secret from start to
There were reports from authorita-
tive sources and these were all to the
effect that the Conference wants Mich-
igan back in the fold again. Just what
the discussion today amounted to was
not stated, but the fact that nothing
definite could be secured leads to the
conclusion that the Conference is
again waiting for somebody to make
the first move.
"We do not know officially that
Michigan wants to come back" said
a member of the Conference tonight.
"However, we understand that a rep-
resentative from Michigan will be at
our Saturday meeting."
Will Michigan Petition
That old question of whether Michi-
gan shall knock on the door, or wheth-
er the Conference shall send the en-
graved invitations, would seem from
this to be the crux of the whole difhi-
culty. In all the years that the W1-
verinies have been away, there has
neverbeen a Conference meeting
without some talk of Michigan, and
there has never been anything done.
The meeting today was merely a rep-
However, what tomorrow will bring
can not be foretold. I Michigan has
a representative here, it is understood
that the Conference will be glad to
hear the Wolverine statements It is
also felt that the Conference will
agree to the old training table rule,
if Michigan will return. But it is
equally certain that Michigan will
have to agree to a faculty control of
athletics before she will be admitted.
The Conference is rabid on this last
ruling. It will stick for it to the last
ditch. From this, those familiar with
the Michigan-Conference trouble be-
lieve that the chances for a reconcili-
ation are hardly as bright as they
would be with this matter left out of
Director Bartelme could not be
reached last night so that it was im-
possible to learn whether Michigan
will be represented at the Conference
meeting today. The athletic authori-
ties have refused to give out-any state-
ments and their policy is unknown.
CHINESE MISSIONARY WILL
LECTURE AT NEWBERRY HALL
Dr. Frank Keller to Speak on Sub ect
. of the Modern Occident
"The New China, and How it Hap-
pened" will be the subject of a talk
by Dr. Frank A. Keller, at an informal
reception to be held in Newberry hall
this evening. The address will deal
with experiences in China during the
last 15 years.
Dr. Keller left this country in 1897
as a member of the Chinese Inland
Mission. Since that time he has de-
voted his life to missionary work, and
since 1900 Dr. and Mrs. Keller have
concentrated their efforts on medical
and evangelistic work at Changsha.
Meets to Discuss German Literature.
The Journal club of the German
faculty held a meeting last night at
the home of Prof. Max Winkler. Ger-
man' literature from its beginning to
1550 was discussed by Prof. C. E. Eg-
gert, and from 1550 to 1880 by Prof.
W. H. Wait.

KOH-I-NOOR WIELDERS WANT RR-E-VENGE
Because of the prevalence of small-
pox throughout the state, Dr. W. B.
Hinsdale, the medical director of the
homeopathic hospital, has issued a let-
ter to the members of his staff warn-
ing them to be on the lookout for the
disease. He emphasized the fact that
all cases showing symptoms of skin
eruptions, backaches, sore-throats,
dizziness and unaccountable fevers
should be segregated, especially if the
patients come from those parts of the
state which are already infected.
