New York, Oct. 25.--Extraordinary
economic and financial events whicht
attract comparatively little attention
are taking place almost daily. Onlyt
a few days ago the largest govern-t
tment loan in history was placed in
this market, and $350,000,000 out of
the $490,000,000 due was paid the first
day without exciting a ripple in finan-
cial circles.
Since the beginning of the current
year we have imported about $300,-
000,000 in gold, and much more is'
criming. Our merchandise exports
again broke the record last week,7
amounting to $73,000,000, or $44,000,-
000 in excess of imports for the same
period. Russia negotiated a war con-'
tract for $60,000,000 and Italy offered'
$25,000,000 of notes for war purposes.
A new American preparedness policy,
costing fully $500,000,000, was an-
nounced from Washington without
evoking any special interest.
That such movements and ideas as
these can come and go without dis-
turbing our serenity is ample proof
bf economic strength and sound men-
tal equilibrium. Today the whole
business world is depending on Amer-
ica for both supplies and credit, and
these we are giving without stint,
yet amply within the lines of safety.
Needless to say that when the war is
b er and normal conditions are re-
stiied, the United States will be found
to ihve made tremendous progress as
a'prime factor In the world's mar-
k ts.
Trhe arrival of gold by the end of
the year will probably reach - $400,-
00,000, bringing our stock of the met-
al to considerably over $2,000,000,00.
This affords an immense basis of
credit, which has been further ex-
panded by operations of the new re-
serve system. The fact is that our
leading facilities are superabundant,
and were it not for their employment
of foreign loans we would be surfeit-
ed with funds and in danger of plung-
ing into riotous Inflation..
Home business- conditions are
growing more and more satisfactory.
Under the stimulus of cheap money,
good crops and war contracts there
has been a very decided revival of
commercial activities that has prob-
ably not yet reached its maximum.
Advices from the west are of an en-
coraging nature, and merchants are
stocking up more freely in anticipa-
tion of a larger fall and winter trade.
Soccer practice will be held tomor-
row afternoon at 3:30 o'clock on south
Ferry field. Candidates will report to
Mr. Fowler.
There will be a meeting of the '16
law baseball team--champions for the
season of 1915-at Daines & Nichols'

Editor The Michigan Daily:
What's happened'to Michigan? 7
Two years ago The Daily foughtI
the student council, the Gargoyle0
knocked The Daily, the Union thought
the Y. M. C. A. was usurping its func-1
tions; one-half of the student bodyr
wanted the Conference, the other half
wanted eastern competition. The mu-1
sical clubs were at swords' points
with the band. The band itself wasc
more or less of a figure-head.
Now what do we see?
The Daily supports the council, the
council The Daily. The Daily openly
bestows praise upon the Gargoyle ed-
itor. The Union and the Y. M. C. A.
see their separate spheres. The mu-
sical clubs help the band, even going
so far as to give up the Union hall
two days before their smoker to allow
the band men to hold an important
pep meeting.
A defeat in football results in the
greatest ,mass meeting ever held in
Michigan. The Varsity band catches
the enthusiasm, and takes its place as
really leading Michigan spirit. It
never did a finer thing than march

Ilerebert Kriendle Admits Conspiracy:
Says HIs Invention is Not a
Bomb But a itine
New York City, Oct. 25.-The fourth
arrest was made today in connection
with the attempt to blow up steamers
to prevent the transporting of muni-
tions of war to the allies, when Dr.
Herebert Kriendle, of the Kriendle
Watch Co., was charged by the fed-
eral officials with conspiracy to vio-
late the laws infringing on the rights
of foreign shipments. He was later
taken to jail and held for $25,000 bail.
Krlendle admits his' attempt to blow
up liners. He is also charged with
supplying explosives to Robert Fay,
who is held in Weehawkenland in con-
nection with the case.
Kriendle explained that the appa-
ratus, which is of his own invention,
should not be called a bomb but a
mine. The apparatus is fastened to
the rudder of the ship and connected
to the propellor in such a way that the
motion of the propeller will force wa-
ter into the mine and there come in
contact with acids, which when wet
will cause a terrific explosion. .
An announcement made here today
by Dr. Edler, secretary to Count von
Bernstorff, the German ambassador,
denies any complicity of the count
with the conspiracy to blow up the
With the musical comedy "Cherry-
blossom" well under way, a few of
the campus stars again figure prom-
inently in what is destined to be one
of the biggest successes ever given in
Ann Arbor. The work of Frances See-
ley, Frank Grover, '18, Morrison
Wood, '16, and Chase B. Sikes, well-
known campus stars, will find its best
expression in this captivating little
Papanese production.
Grover as Jack, Cherry's American
sweetheart, is perfectly at home as
a hero, and his tenor voice will be
heard to good advantage in his song
numbers and duets with Cherry, the
part taken by Miss Seeley.
The combined work of Olive Hart-
sig, '17, and Chase Sikes in the songs,
"Down Lover's Lane" and "The Game
of Love" promises to be one of the
biggest hits of the entire show.
George Parsons, as Togo, a Japan-
ese politician of high rank, possesses
a voice of unusual beauty, and like
his brother, Roy Parsons, '15, he is
a born actor.
As a special feature of this year's
production it is stated that 1,000 cop-
ies of the song "Cherryblossm," to be
sung by Grover, will be given away.
Dean Victor C. Vaughan, of the
medical school, will return to Ann
Arbor early this morning. Dean
Vaughan has been on an extended
trip through the states of the middle
west during the past month, deliver-
ing lectures at many places where he
visited. Dean Vaughan was the prin-
cipal speaker at the conference of the
American Social Hygiene association
held at the Congress hotel, Chicago,
last night. His subject was, "The
l Commercialized Social Evil." ,

show this spirit and feel proud that

Thursday, with Rev, M. S. Rice, of
Detroit, as the principal speaker of
the evening. Rev. Rice has been heard
in Adn Arbor several times, and is
already famed for his talks at former
Michigan mass meetings.
Committees consisting of 20 men
from all departments of the university,
under the direction of W. R. Hunt,
are hard at work in order to make
Thursday's affair one of the biggest
ever held.
It is planned to hold a bible school
once, and possibly twice a week in
McMillan hall. All men will assemble
and listen to a talk by Professor Hen-
derson on some general theme for 10
or 15 minutes, and then each small
group will adjourn for 50 minutes of
discussion of the particular problem
in which it is interested. Any num-
ber of courses will be offered.

day the final organization of the com-
mittee will take place. George Claa-
son, '17L. C. C. Bailey, '17, J. F. Meade,
'17E, and Ray Stevens, '17D, head the
committees in their own departments.
Each has a committee of three men
who are aiding in the work.
The meeting this noon will be a pre-
liminary "explanation meeting" for
which Rev. Rice has been especially
secred. One hundred and fifty faculty
men and students, particularly inter--
ested, have been invited to this meet-
ing, at which the general aim and
plans for the year will be launched.

"TiE FOUR IN CRETE," by Ger-
trude It. Beggs, as published by the
Abingdon Press.
The popular impression that archeo-
logists are dry and stupied persons
with interest in nothing but ancient
and musty ruins, is completely put to
rout for anyone who takes a journey
with "The Four in Crete." This is a
very delightfully told story of the ad-
ventures which the Schwean, the
Sage, the ('offee Angel and the West-
ern Woman found in the famous lit-
tle island, and of the archeological
investiations there. A great deal of
information about recent discoveries
in Crete, as well as about the man-
ners and habits of the present gen-
eration is embodied in the conversa-
tions of the party, while whimsical
comments of the Western Woman in
particular throw humorous lights on
many aspects of Cretan life.
Students and story lovers alike will
enjoy the easy style, the brief de-
scriptive passages, and the pleasant
tone of the entire narrative. It is a
book distinctly about persons, an-
cient and modern, as well as places,
but never about lifeless things.
The author, Miss Gertrude H. Beggs,
social director of the Martha Cook
building, is frank to admit that the
story, even to the conversations, is a
true record of her journey through
Crete in 1913. The very detailed ac-
count of the trips which she made im-
mediately after its completion, was
mailed to America and went down
with the Titanic. Fortunately, Miss
Beggs was able to reconstruct the
book from notes and records. The il-
lustrations are all made from photo-
graphs taken by members of the party
who, to judge from the story, were
quite unable to exist apart from their
cameras and their thermos bottles.
Although there is no way of telling
the exact number of people at last
Saturday's game, officials at the Ath-
letic association figure that the crowd
numbered approximately 20,200.
Before the figures on the paid at-
tendance were turned in Saturday, the
attendance was estimated from 18,000
to 19,000. However, the receipts to-
taled slightly over $13,500.
This means more than 13,500 paid
admissions. The Athletic association
officials estimate that the M. A. C. and
Michigan students numbered 6,700,
which swells the total to 20,200. The
receipts were divided 60-40, Michigan,
of course, getting the bigger per-
Last year the crowd at the Pennsyl-
vania game broke the Ferry field rec-
ord, numbering slightly more than
23,000. This means that the attend-
ance at last Saturday's game was
within 3,000 of the record.

Insignia Problem
Not Hard At All
Vast Divergence of Color Represents
Various Colleges and Schools
of Country
NVben convocation time returns and
one sees the brilliant and various ar-
ray of gowns and hoods, he is quite
sure to find that his knowledge of
the insignia of the degree world is
limited. Every little feature and color
has a meaning.
Every upperclass man is familiar
with the bachelor's or senior gown
with its simple lines and plain black
color. The greatest difference be-
tween it and the master's gown is in
the cut of the sleeve which is fuller
in the latter. The doctor's gown is
designed along lines distinct from the
other two and all of the three gowns
are distinctive of their type through-
out the country.
The most characteristic feature of
the academic gown is the hood which
is decorated with the colors of the
university. The shake of the hood is
different from the bachelor's, the mas-
ter's and the doctor's 'gown. The
graduate always wears the gown and
hood of the distinctive degree which
has always been conferred upon him.
A student working for his mas-
ter's degree wears his bachelor's
gown and not the master's gown. If
he has.had his master's degree con-
ferred upon him and is working for
his doctor's degrea he wears his mas-
ter's gown. The great divergance of
color seen on the various gowns at;
convocation is explained by the fact
that while there are only a few de-
grees represented there are many dif-
ferent universities and colleges by
which they have been conferred.
New York, Oct. 25.-" Life for

Lyman Bryson, the second within the
short space of two months to be ac-
cepted by that publication. Both ap-
peared in a short story contest at
present being conducted by "Life."
This contest is unique in that every
story accepted for publication is paid
for at the rate of 10 cents per word
for every word under 1,500 words
which the author does not write. Out
' of the 30,000 submitted, about 50 have
been accepted. It will be some time:
before it will be possible to select the
prize-winning stories.
U. of N. GraduAte Injuredi
Reno, Nev., Oct. 25.-Philip S. Cow-
gill, graduated from Nevada last year,
and now in the employ of the Union
Land & Livestock Co., met with a most
peculiar accident the other day. In
an effort to get a picture of an out-
- law horse, Cowgill was forced to go
- into a small corral. While adjusting
- the camera the wild horse dashed to-
- ward him and struck him on the
shoulder with his head. The young .
engineer was wearing high-heeled
boots which stuck in the soft earth.
The shock of the collision knocked
him down and badly twisted and shat-
tered his leg.
