Regulars and Cohn For
Secure Only Two


Yesterday was a record day for the
sale of tickets to the Michigan-Cornell
football game, more seats being dis-
posed of to outsiders than on any day
thus far. In addition, all the student
tickets were mailed out.
Athletic association authorities esti-
mate that more than 12,000 tickets
have been sold, but due to the enlarged
capacity of the stands, several thous-
and good seats are yet procurable.
From present indications, it is prob-
able that nearly as large a crowd as
the record-breaker last Saturday, will
witness the contest this week.

French Instructor Writes Prof. Levi

ing Absence
J. R. Shulters, instructor in French,
left his room last Tuesday, and it
seemed until Saturday, that he had
completely disappeared without leav-
ing a trace behind him. Dean J. R.
Effinger instituted an investigation,
Friday, to find out what had happened
to the missing man, but was complete-
ly at a loss until Saturday night, when
Prof. M. Levi called him up to tell him
of a letter received from the absent

Shulters would be absent for only a

his home in Bristol, N. Y., and explain-

to the university oi account of . ill
Mr. Shulter.s came to the university
at the beginning of the year, after be-
ing an instructor at the University of
Illinois last year. Other members of
the French department will take
charge of his classes.
Prof. Leo I. Sharfman and Prof. Dav-
id Friday will go to Chicago tomorrow,
to attend a convention of the Western
Economic Society. The society will
hold a conference on American Rail-
way Problems at Hotel Sherman, on
November 12, 13 and 14. Professor
Friday will head the discussion of a
paper, given by Prof. Thomas Adams
on, "Valuation of Public Service Cor-
porations for Purposes of Taxation."

Prof. Henry C. Adams and family,
who have been in China for the last
year, returned to Ann Arbor Saturday.
Professor Adams was called to China
a year ago by the government to devise
an accounting system for the railroads
which they had taken over. He will
resume his teaching in the political
economy department next semester.

Stories from Lansing, to the effect
that the Farmers will not play Michi-
gan again unless they can get a later
date on the Wolverine schedule, are
causing considerable amusement for
the local athletic authorities. The Ag-
gie press agents are complaining that
they lost the Nebraska game on ac-
count of the tussle with the Wolver-
ines the week before.
If the Capiiol city faction thinks it
can replace Penn, Harvard, Cornell, or
even Syracuse, on the Michigan sched-
ule, it is mistaken, according to the
local management. As the .Lansing
men are also talking about dropping
Mt. Union, which gave them such a
bad scare, the talk of not playing
Michigan is given the laugh by the
Wolverine mentors. Mihigan would
find no trouble in listing another pre-
liminary game, whereas the Aggies
would be minus their biggest one,
M. A. C., instead of getting a better
place on the Michigan scledule, will
probably have to consent to even less
advantageous terms. Heretofore, the
Varsity has played one game in four at
Lansing, but since the Wolverines now
have so many eastern alliances with
alternating games. Michigan will prob-
ably now insist on playing all her pre-
liminary games in the Ferry field sta-

Superior Maize and Blue Forward Men
Threatened By Coach Sharpe's
Veteran Halfs
Cornell's backfield will have a big
advantage in weight when the Ithacans
face Yost's warriors on Saturday, the
easterners' lightest backfield man
outweighing Catlett, the heaviest Wol-
verine back, by 10 pounds. The Michi-
gan line, however, will have a slight
margin on Coach Sharpe's forwards.
Michigan's line will average 186 2-7
pounds, to 178 1-7 pounds for Cornell.
The four eastern backs average 175
pounds, however, while the Wolverines
have to be content with an average of
156 1-4 pounds. £
The switching of Staatz and Catlett
to the Varsity leaves the team lighter
by eight pounds than the early season
combination, but the Wolverines have
become accustomed to being outweigh-
ed, and think nothing at all of a '10
pound handicap.
Cornell's great advantage lies in the
fact that she has .1 men on her squad,
who have played at least one game
against the Maize and Blue, while six
of these men have faced Yost's war-
riors twice. Michigan has walloped
the Ithacans two years in succession,
and the Big Red team is out for re-
venge, basing their threats upon the
fact that Coach Sharpe has developed
the best team this fall that Cornell has
boasted of in several years.
Director Bartelme Lays Matter Before
Athletic Board For Special
Minnesota-Michigan football was
suggested in a telegram, received yes-
terday by Athletic Director Bartelme,
from a body of Minneapolis alumni of
the two schools, who are backing a
project for a turkey-day battle between
all-star teams of alumni of the two
Mr. Bartelme promised to lay the
matter before the board in control of
athletics, but does not consider the
matter likely to go through. If the ex-
ecutive committee of the board feels
that the proposal is a practical one, a
special meeting of the board will prob-
ably be called soon to go into the mat-
ter in detail.

Prepare Shorter and Livlier Program
For Friday Gathering
With the end in view of making the
Cornell game mass meeting, next Fri-
day evening, shorter and livelier, the
program committee, composed of Adna
R. Johnson, '14, and Chester Lang, '15,
has begun preparation for the last big
gathering of the year. Though the
meeting will begin at 7:30 o'clock, it
is planned to conclude the affair at
8:15 o'clock.
As another means of shortening the
program, no cartoons will be thrown
on the screen, and the amount of sing-
ing will be reduced. The band will
play selections, and "Hap" Haff will
have charge of the cheering.
The speakers for the evening have
not yet been definitely secured. Tick-
ets for the gathering will be distribu-
ted at the Union Thursday and Friday
in the same manner as for the two pre-
ceding mass meetings.
