Campaign to be Instituted Through
Agency of Committees Appointed
in All Departments of the
Students Will Present Proposition to
Representatives in Their
Own Districts.
Active work on the campus in the
interests of the campaign for Michigan
student suffrage will be begun imme-
diately through the agency of com-
mittees which have been appointed for
all the departments excepting the
medic. After the holidays, a general
mass meeting of students will be call-
ed at which final preparations will be
made for the submission of the propo-
sition to the legislature. The work of
the committees will be to interest
their friends in the measure, and 'to vi-
tali e the agitation.
Many of the students interested have
signified their intention of sounding
the representatives in their own dis-
tricts with the intention of finding out
what is the general attitude toward
such a proposition as the one propos-
ed, of students voting by mail. Sone
plan to interview the legislators per-
sonally, and it is. expected that Henry
Rottschaefer, the original drafter of
the bill, will visit Representative Mur-
phy, of Berrien county,to ascertain his
view on the matter, and to inquire as
to his plans regarding a similar meas-
The committees which have thus far
been appointed have as their chair-
men: H. V. Spike, '14L; D. M. Daron,
'ill; Joseph H. Motley, '14D; and W.
R. Melton, '13.
Plans are being formulated for the
seventh anniversary of the founding
of the Michigan chapter of the Corda-
Fratres Cosmopolitan club which oc-
curs on January 13. As it will be the
biggest affair of the season given by
the club, efforts are being made to ob-
tain some men of national repute for
the meeting.
Kiyo Sue Inui, '06, the Japanese or-
ator and peace-advocate, who was the
tunder and the first president of the
local club, will be one of the speakersi
Five manuscripts have already been
submitted to the committee in charge
of the junior women's annual play,
which is the largest number that has
ever been handed In before the Christ-
mas holidays. All the plays show
great promise of first rate productions.
Many of the third year women are
still working upon their manuscripts,'
and judging from the number who are
to place librettos before the
judges, the play will be one of the best
that the junior women have ever stag-
ed. All maniuscripts must be submit-
ted in final form by January 7.
Cosmopolitans Will Send Delegates,
The local Cosmopolitan club has ac-
cepted the invitation to participate in
the " Eighth International Congress of
Students" to be held at Cornell Uni-
versity, Ithaca, N. Y. Delegates will
be elected to represent the Michigan
chapter at the congress.
T. G. Kane Talks to Prof. Scott's Class.

"The socialistic movement should
be understood by all collegians," said
Mr. Laidler, "as it is the greatest po-
litical phenomenon of the present cent
tury. Forty years ago there were on-
ly a few thousand socialist voters in
the world, and today the movement
claims about 30,000,000 adherents. In
the last election practically 900,000 so-
cialist votes were cast in the United
States alone. These are facts which
the student should consider."

JUNIOR A'V4 lI1 Id) t





Student advisors have now been
provided for all freshmen women, but
there are still 15 senior lits needed to
serve in that capacity for the first
year men. The plan as arranged by
the faculty committee in charge call
for three advisors to each group, one
member of the faculty, one senior who
will have charge of the men in each
grup, and one junior woman, for the
women students, making a group of
nc more than 10 in all, including the
freshmen and their advisors.
During the.holidays, a booklet will
be printed which will contain the list
of groups, the names of the advisors,
and the addresses of both. The names
of the freshmen will be given in alpha-
betical order, and there will be a com-
plete index, both of names and groups.
These books are to be sent by mail to
all the advisors, and are to be ac-
companied by a circular letter de-
scribing the plan which it is urged
should be pursued, and a general out-
"line of the advisory work. According
to the plans of the committee, the vol-
unteer advisors are to commence
work immediately after the vacation,
and will therefore proceed to get ac-
quainted with the members of his or
her particular group as soon as pos-
In order that the booklet m'ay be
complete, it is important that the req-
uisite number of senior lits is made
up, and all who wish to volunteer their
services for the work are urged to call
Rolfe Spinning, 1505, and turn in their
names before the end of this week.

during the Christmas vacation and the
dining room will not be closed. On
Christmas day, a regulation turkey
dinner has been planned. The new ad-
dition has been rented to several pr

ing this period. The regular Saturday
night membership parties are to be
continued throughout the vacation.
Advice Will be Given to Prospective
Authors by the "imes."
All men who intend to submit orig-
inal lyrics and plots of th 1914 Mich-
igan Union opera will meet tonight at
7:00 o'clock at the Union. Last year
on the same occasion, 18 men signified
heir intentions to compete. On account
of the increased membership in the
Union and the growing interest in
these university productions, the
"Mimes" elpect at least 20 candi-
dates to enter the race. At the meet-
ing this evening, advice will ,be given
as to the nature of the work. "Bob"
Beck, the writer of this year's book,
Philip K. Fletcher, the general chair-
man of this year's production, and oth-
er members of the "Mimes" will give
short talks. All prospective authors
are urged to be present tonight.
Michigan's State Peace Representa-
tive Will be Selected Tomor-
row Night.
Five picked speakers will declaim
tomorrow night for the honor of rep-
resenting the university against the
other colleges of Michigan in the-State
Peace oratorical contest. The contest

Hall, and and ex-congressman Edwin
L. Denby, '96L, of Detroit, will preside.
The order in which the men will
speak, and the subjects of their ora-
tions are as follows: J. W. Harding,
14L, "The Armed Peace of the United,
States;" H. C. Tallmadge, '14, "The
Disarmament of Nations;" Paul B.
Blanshard, '14, The Evolution of Pa-
triotism;" S. S. Grosner, '14L, "Our

summer. Last year Michigan's rep-
resentative won both contests.
Senior Lits Must Verify Credits.
One hundred senior lits have been
notified to verify their credits with
Registrar Hall today. This is the
last week the seniors will have to,
check over their work and an effort
is being made to have them attend to
the matter at once in order to avoid
trouble in the spring.
Cosmopolitans Hold Smoker Saturday
The third monthly smoker of the
Cosmopolitan club will be held at the
Michigan Union Saturday afternoon
at 2:00 o'clock. Music will be render-
ed, and refreshments served and mem-

Action Will be Taken at Fach of the
]Fraternity Houses Repreented
at the Big Annual
Musical and Comedy Clubs 'Will Have

Extreme dancing of all kinds will be
absent at the 1914 Junior hop. At a
business meeting of the combined
committees held at the Alpha Delta
Phi house yesterday afternoon, a com-
mittee was appointed to discuss unap-
proved dances, and at the next meet-
ing of the committees it will report
on the kinds of dancing to be permit-
ted at the hop.
The action in regard to extreme
dancing will be somewhat different
than is generally pursued. Instead of
having a floor committee to "call" the
couples who are doing the unauthoriz-
ed varieties, action will be taken pre-
vious to the dance at the pfraerit
houses represented. Each of the 19
representatives will urge the matter
at his own house according to the sug-
gestions of the committee. It is ex-
peted that thereby any necessity of
a floor committee will be done away
Contracts are Lt
As in previous years the music con-
tract was let to Fisher of Kalamazoo
and Finzel of Detroit. The Finzel or-
ganization will have 15 pieces, a larger
number than that orchestra has ever
sent to the hop. The. Kalamazoo or-

The contract for decorations will be
let this week to the NationalaFlag
Decorating Co., of Detroit, which has
decorated Waterman gymnasium for
the hop for tthe past 12 years. This
company will have charge of the gen-
eral decoration, including the big can-
opy and hanging baskets, as wellas
the favors and favor receptales. hey
will also plan the numerous novelties.,
In general the decoration will be
the same as last year but some innova-
tions in details will help to convert
the bare interior of the gym into a
dgreater wonderland than ever before.
The general color scheme of yellow
and blue will be followed out in the
ecoration of the main part of the gym
asium, but for the most part the
booths will be decorated in fraternity
Many Amusements Planned.
As usual campus organizations have
planned amusements for hop visitors.
On the Thursday night preceding the
dance the combined musical clubs will
give their annual recital instead of
on Saturday night as has been recent-
ly considered. The hop itself will oc-
cur on Friday 'night and on Saturday
afternoon the Comedy club will pre-
sent "Money" at the New Whitney
At the first meeting of the ndepend-
ents Monday afternoon about 20 were
present. The meeting was in the 'na-
ture of a get-acquainted affair and no
actual plans were made. The third
business meeting of the combined
committees for the hop will be held
on the Thursday after vacation at the

Alpha Delta Phi house. At this meet-
ing the other contracts will be let and
the matter of unapproved dancing will
be discussed further.
