Michigan will have as many support-
ers at M. A. C. on Saturday, as she
has had in her early season games at
home. With every available interur-
ban ticket sold early yesterday after-
noon, and the Michigan Central sale
running over the 300 mark, the rush
showed no signs of a let-up at a late
hour last night. The Ann Arbor road's
tickets go on sale today.
Six special cars have been chartered
on the Michigan Central for private
parties, in addition to the excursion
train that will be open to the general
public. The agent states that sufli-
cient coaches will be provided to fur-
nish ample room for everyone, and
that there will be no crowding. Sever-
al special cars have been chartered to
take Michigan alumni in Detroit to the'
game.
The interurban company has arrang-
ed to send six special cars, in addition
to those which have been chartered by
vairous organizations. The cars will' be
sent in two trains at 8:46 and 10:46,
the latter being scheduled to arrive in
ample time for the game. The time at
which the interurbans will leave Lan-
sing on the return trip Saturday night
has not yet been determined, but will
be announced on the way to the game.
When word reached M. A. C. that
the number of Michigan rooters would
probably be close to 2,500, the authori-
ties began making additional plans for
handling the huge crowd, and work on
the temporary bleachers is being rush-
ed with all possible speed.
Michigan rooters will make their
headquarters at the Hotel Downey
during their stay in Lansing.
RED CROSS BENEFIT MEETING
DRAWS NEARLY 2,000 PEOPLE

promises to be one of the biggest
nights of real Michigan entertainment
ever offered. The immediate aim of
the band is to get enough money be-
fore October 31, to take the trip to'
Harvard with the team.
Plans are in the hands of Manager
J. S. Hoexter and a committee of stu-
dents representing the entire campus.
Every effort will be made to fill the
auditorium frpm the orchestra rail to
the ceiling, at 25 cents a seat, which
will give the needed $1,500. A letter
has been received from the alumni as-
sociation of New England to the effect
that the band will be taken care of
while in Boston.
The musical part of the concert
program will be furnished' by the
band, the glee.and mandolin clubs, and
the University symphony orchestra.,
while the campus has been dragged for
stunts, vaudeville acts and novelties to
fill the evening full. Beside the bet-
ter known campus entertainers the
committee has unearthed a freshman
prodigy in the shae of a man just off,
the vaudeville stage who has a com-
plete line of original acts. C. Stanley
Lamb, '18, of Duluth, will be the head-
liner in the vaudeville department.
Other parts of the program will be
announced later.
The band will take an important
part in the Convocation exercises, to-
day.

Though a band of farmers at East

afternoon, there is a group of collegi-
ans at Adrian whose hopes do not run

tire from a squad of 18 pupils to the little state

Fresh squad in several years. The

Dr. Wishart Outlines Organization's
Work; Over $500 Is Given
By Audience
Nearly 2,000 people were present at
the Red Cross mass meeting, held in
Hill auditorium last evening. Presi-
dent-Emeritus James B. Angell spoke
a few words of welcome, and introduc-
ed the Rev. Alfred W.Wishart of Grand'
Rapids, the principal speaker of the
evening. -
Dr. Wishart made a strong appeal
for the American Red Cross society,
outlining the work of that organiza-
tion in the past and pointing out its
humanitarian achievements in the war
stricken countries of Europe today.
He also spoke about the war, its atroc-
ities, and how such a catastrophe
might be prevented in the future.
The Cosmopolitan club assisted by
the Red Cross nurses presented a tab-
leau. Twenty members of the club
represented their native lands in the
tableau, carrying banners, while 16
nurses were spread among them, indi-
cating the wide spread movement of
the American Red Cross society.
A collection of $503.60 was taken up
in cash subscriptions and pledges.
NUMBER OF APPLICANTS FOR
WORK EXCEEDS EMPLOYMENT
Employment continues to be scarce
at the Michigan Union bureau, while
the number of applicants is great.
There are a few soliciting jobs on hand'
and there are 75 student applicants,
many of whom are dependent on out-
side work for their support in the
university. The employment secretary
of the Union, who was ill during the
first of the week, is again at his desk.:

Less than a week remains before
interclass football is due to begin, and
so few teams have turned out for prac-
tice, and so few classes have signified
their intention of ,taking part in the
series, that as yet it has been impossi-
ble to arrange a schedule.,
In order to arouse interest, and to
find out what classes will have teams,
Intramural Director Rowe has plan-
ned a meeting 'of all class football
managers for 5:00 o'clock today.
If possible the schedule will be
started Monday, but if play cannot be
started as early as that, it will be be-
gun not later than Wednesday. Teams
which wish to. practice, and have not
as yet received balls from their class,
may secure old balls for practice pur-
poses from Director Rowe or Coach
Crawford at south Ferry field.

FRESH FOOTBALL MEN APPEAR ,
TO HAVE BEST DEVELOPMENT
Majority of Physical Examinations of
First Year Men Are Now
Completed
Dr. May has given physical examna-
tions to more than half of the fresh-
men enrolled in the literary and engi-
neering departments, although there
still remain two weeks of- the month
set aside for these examinations. Of
the number which has had its inspec-
tion, none has shown exceptional de-
velgpment, although several of the
All-Fresh football men were given the
best percentages. Robbins and Brown
of the yearling squad appear to lave
the best "builds" thus far
The freshmen gymnasium classes
start November 2, and with the excep-
tion of Guy C. Curtiss, '16E, whose
place has been taken by W. E. Lam-
oreaux, '16L, Dr. May's staff of assist-
ants will remain intact.

Election time rumor is once more
on the campus. The most insistent
talk centers about the senior classes]
in the law and engineering depart-
ments. Most of the men approached
by a Daily representative would admit
that their information was based on
hearsay only, but refused to come for-
ward with a definite accusation.
In the law department, the rumor is
that one candidate had had a number.
of votes pledged even before the nom-
inations. Another candidate in the
same class is said to have had a cer-
tain number of votes lined up for him
by a small ring.
In the engineering department, a
certain portion of the class is said to
have decided on a certain man for
president as far back as the middle
of last summer. Last year a similar
faction failed of electing its candidate
by only two or three votes.
A. T. Ricketts, '15E, president of the
student council said last night that
that body would take action only if
a definite charge is brought to its at-
tention.
The student council-constitution un-
der "suggestions for senior and jun-
for nominations" says "There shall be
no campaigning for office, whether in
the form of election cards, personal so-
licitation, solicitation by friends, or in
any other manner whatsoever. Sec-
tion 6 of the class constitutions reads:
"5. No solicitation for support for any
candidate for office or electioneering
of any kind shall be carried on any-
where within the building in which the
election is being held."

Spirits were raised in the All-Fresh
camp last night when it was learned
that the yearlings had survived the
ravages of the eligibility committee
with scarcely a cut. In previous years,
a number of good men have been lost
through scholastic difficulties, but this
year's bunch seem to have practically
escaped the wrath of the faculty.'
Though tomorrow's lineup has not
been definitely chosen, it is expected
the men will start about as follows:
Ingham, le; Pobanz, It; Henrickson,
