the Varsity band have gone by con-
'n traries this week.
n- Manager S. A. Hoexter stated yes-

he need more practice before playing for
e- the first time, and cancelled the agree-
d ment to give a campus concert tonight.
Is Later the Union tried to, secure the
rt serices of the musicians for the annual
open house entertainment. After con-
n sidering the proposition Hoexter also.
called off that ararngement.
. The students, however, he said may

form playing the "Victors" on Ferry

NEW POWER HOUSE WHEELS
WILL TURN IN SHORT TIME
Electric light and power from the
new university power house on Wash-
ington street will soon be furnished
for University hall and the law and
chemistry buildings. Hill auditorium
will be connected in the near future
and the new science building as soon
as completed. The remaining build-
ings on the campus will not be reach-
until next year.
The current comes to each building
with thehigh E. M. F. of 2,300 volts,
making it impracticable to utilize the
old tunnels with low voltage transmis-
sion from the campus power house.
New vitrified conduits withheavy lead
cable were laid and five step-down
transformers are used at each building.
Work on the tunnels started in July
and was completed the middle of Sep-
tember.

The new concrete stadium will be
thrown open to the public for the first
time on the date of the Vanderbilt
game, which is scheduled for October
10. The immense structure is now
being painted with a composition of
cement and oil, which will render it
waterproof and impervious to the at-
tacks of the northern winter, and En-
gineer Weeks has been forced to eject
numerous tresspassers who persist in
inspecting the work and make re-
painting necessary.
Seventy-five men are now engaged
in setting the wooden seats and put-
ting on the finishing touches before the
formal opening. The number of men
employed varied throughout the sum-
mer from 150 tp 35 and the most se-
rious accident which occurred was a
broken shoulder.
According to Engineer Weeks, the
entire stand, which has a capacity of
13,000, can be emptied in a trifle less
than seven minutes. Twenty students
were employed as concrete hustlers
and shovel wielders, among this num-
'ber being Watson, Reimann, Hildner,
and Hughitt of the Varsity squad. The
diminutive quarterback acted in the,
capacity of "official squirrel" when the
forms were being removed from the
upper portions of the stand, and for
ten days he clambered about, fifty feet
above the terra firma, wrestling withi
twenty foot timbers.I

Enrollment in the dental department
has increased at an unprecedented
rate. A total of 303 students, 130 of
whom are freshmen, has taxed the fa-
cilities of that department beyond the
limit, and the question of providing
for them is perplexing the faculty.
The medic department has register-
ed 327 students, and the homeopathic
department reports an enrollment of
71. Although this is below the total
of last year, the expected registration
of the next few days and of the second
semester will probably equal the num-
-ber of 1913-1914.
With a total of 139 registrations, the
architecture department has surpass-
ed the number of last year by 15. The
freshman class of 69 is 15 larger than
that of 1913-1914. Up to last night the
total enrollment in the engineering de-
partment was 1,490. This is a good in-
crease over last year. The law depart-
ment reports an increase of four regis-
trations yesterday, mainking a total
of 474, but it is not expected that the
final enrollment will equal that of last
year.
No figures are given out by the liter-
ary and graduate departments, but
each reports a substantial increase.
Registration inthe department of
pharmacy shows a 10 per cent increase
over last year's figures, 108 students
having been enrolled up to the present
time.

GA N IN MEMBERSHIP FOR
DAY EQIALS LAST YEAR'S
Prof. James P. Bird and A. T. Ricketts
Are Listed Among Speakers
For This Evening
Every man student in the university
is invited to be present at the big an-
nual fall reception of the Michigan
Union at 7:39 o'clock tonight at the
clubhouse. In order that everybody
may hear the program of talks and
musical numbers a platform has been
erected in the side yard where every-
one can be accommodated. The whole
clubhouse will be thrown open and
after the program those who attend
will have an opportunity to mingle in-
formally.
A big orchestra directed by "Ike";
Fischer will be on hand to play Mich-
igan songs and other pieces through-
out the evening. C. B. Haff, '13-'15L,
varsity cheer leader, has promised to
lead the yells and Kenneth Wester-
man, '14, will have charge of the sing-
ing. Professor James P. Bird, secre-
tary of the engineering department,
is the faculty speaker on the program.
A. T. Ricketts,, president of the Stu-1
dent Council will also talk, touching
on the work of the Council.
Last year the big room at the Union
was not large enough to accommodate
all that came out. An even bigger at-
tendance is expected tonight and prep-
arations are boing made accordingly.
Deunis Donovan, far famed as a dis-
penser of good eats, etc., has laid in
a plentiful supply of smokes and sweet
cider for the occasion.
Yesterday's gain in members over
the day before was equal to the gain
made on the same approximate day
last year. Although the total number
is still about fifty behind last year's
total at this time it is readily explain-
ed by the fact that about 100 life
members who are not counted have
paid (heir installments. Thus in reali-
ty the figures are running ahead of
last year's. . Elaborate preparations
are being made for the man to man
canvas next week.

Dixie Club Meets at Union Thursday
In order to afford new students from,
the south an opportunity to get ac-
quainted early, the Dixie club will
hold its first meeting of the year at
7:3'6 o'clock, Thursday, October 8, at
the Michigan Union. All old members
are urged to be present.

Chemistry Courses Are Crowded,
Although a few of the chemistry
courses of the literary. department are
somewhat crowded, the registration.
in other courses is a little below the'
average. That the department's Chem-
istry Announcement did not appear
I until recently, may be blamed for the
decreased enrollment in some of the
courses. The course in Organic Chem-
istry is one of the few which are over-
crowded, there being only 92 desks to
t accommodate an enrollment of 105
students. The exact registration fig-
ures in all chemistry courses have not
yet been announced.

Famous Scotchman Added to Faculty
Prof. MacKavanaugh, who prepared
at Glasgow University, Scotland, and
was for nine years chief electrician of.
the Anglo-American Cable Company,
in charge of the maintenance of the
Atlantic cables, has been appointed
assistant-professor in electrical engi-
neering; Prof. MacKavanaugh was al-
so instructor in electrical engineering
at the Nova Scotia Technical College,
Halifax, Nova Scotia, and more recent-
ly was the head of the electrical de-
partment of the Shawinigan Technical
Institute, Shawinigan Falls, Quebec.
Cosmopolitan Club Meets Sunday
The Cosmopolitan club will tiold its
first meeting of the year Sunday after-
noon at 4:00 o'clock, in McMillan hall,
where plans for the year will be talk-
ed over and discussed. Pres. W. C.
Achi will outline the programi which
he and the directors have planned.
Following the business meeting, new
members will 'be welcomed.
A director's meeting has been call-
ed for 6:00 o'clock tomorrow evening,

committees are asked to meet with the
directors.

COUNCIL TO DISCUSS PLANS
OF BIG STUDENT MEETINGS
Outlet for Big Game Enthusiasm Will
Receive Attention of
Councilmen
A regular meeting of the entire stu-
dent body once- a month for the pur-
pose of fostering and uniting campus
sentiment will probably be discussed
by the Student Council at its meeting
in University Hall at 7:30 o'clock Tues-
day night. Schemes for providing an
outlet for enthusiasm after the big
football games may also be discussed.
As yet only the necessity for such ac-
tion has been discussed informally by
individual members of the council, but
no definite program has been framed.
At the same time reports of commit-
tees on the flag rush and cane sprees,
which come the following Saturday,
will be heard. Councilmen will be as-
