An executive staff, composed of

man; Phillip C. Lovejoy, '16, executive

chairman of the women's division; has
charge of the entire campaign. Under
this staff are a group of 20 sub-chair-
men who will take charge of the var-
ious departmental and special meet-
Each department of the university
will have its special meeting, in con-
nection with the general meetings
which will be held each evening in

partmental chairmen, composed of
Harry L. Bell, '15L, law department;

Parties Arranged To Entertain. Guests
Who Have Returned For
Cornell Fray
In order to furnish better entertain-
ment for visitors in Ann Arbor at the
Cornell game, two dances will be given
by the Michigan Union, the first, the
Discount dance to be held at the club
house between 9:00 and 1:00 o'clock
tonight, and the other, to be held at
Barbour gymnasium between 9:00 and
12:00 o'clock tomorrow night. Tickets
for both dances are now on sale at
the Union for members, and many
have already been sold.
Admission to the Discount dance to-
night is 99 cents, and the number is
limited to 101. Tickets for the post-
game dance tomorrow night are on

Hill Auditorium Will Resound Tonight
at Last Mass Meeting'
of Year
"Locomotives," "Fight-ems," and
"Yea teams" will resound throughout
Hill auditorium at the Cornell mass
meeting tonight, with such rapidity
and volume that every undergraduate,
and every alumnus of the university
will leave the building tired out and
hoarse. It is more than certain that
the auditorium will be taxed to its
capacity, since all but fifty of the tick-
ets for the giant gathering were given
out yesterday. The few remaining will
be given to the first-comers in front
of the Union this morning, beginning
at 9:30 o'clock. Coupon No. 33 of the
athletic coupon book is required in
exchange for the pasteboards.
The committee in charge of the
"pep" session promises that the affair
will be short and snappy, and in all
probability, it will be over at 8:30
o'clock. A reel of moving pictures of
last week's Penn game will be shown
for the first time on any screen.
Prosecuting Attorney George J.
Burke, '07L, has been secured to speak,
and he, along with ex-Congressman
Edwin Denby, '96L, of Detroit, will
represent the alumni. H. Beach Car-
penter, '14-'17L, will preside over the
gathering, and will represent the stu-
dent body. The faculty speaker has
not yet been chosen.
It is more than probable that the
chairman will call upon Captain Jam-
es Raynsfordi and other members of
the team for short talks. The Varsity
band will be present to play "The:Vic-
tors," and to accompany the rooters In
their singing of "The Yellow and
Blue;" and "Varsity."
"'he aeeting tonight, being the last
one of the year, will, according to the
committee, be the best. The fact that
the team will be present, will stir up
the rooters, and will also inspire the
members of the team to play their
best against Cornell tomorrow.
After the meeting, the Majestic man-
agement has promised a free show to
the rooters.

"Kazoos" Ordered For Cornell Game
In connection with the plans which
are being made for the student demon-
strations for Saturday's football game,
6,000 "Kazoos" have been ordered, and
are now being distributed. If enough
of them are sold, they will be used at
the mass meeting tonight. Over 800
had been disposed of last night. They
are on sale at the university Y. M. C.

"No excuse can be offered for the
defeat of Pennsylvania at Ann Arbor
Saturday. In Michigan, the 'Varsity
met a superior team, before which it
had to bow. The Pennsylvania team
was believed by the coaches to be in
good trim, and no fault could be found
with the condition of the field or the
weather. The most regretable feat-
ure of the contest was the fact that
Pennsylvania went to pieces so com-

a greater number of yards than did
