Congressman Ilobson, Prof. Lomax
and Mary Antin Will Appear
During Year
Schedule First Lecture for October 7
at 8:00 O'clock
Mary Antin, Congressman Richmond
F. Hobson, and Prof. John A. Lomax,
of the University of Texas, head the
list of the speakers who are to ap-
pear in Ann Arbor under the auspices
of the Oratorical association. ,
Miss Antin, who is the authoress of
"The Promised Land" and "They Who
Knock at Our Gates, as well as a
number of other widely' read and dis-
cussed books dealing with the immi-
gration problem, has been -secured to
speak on some phase of immigration
at 8:00 o'clock on the evening of Oc-
tober 27 in University Hall. The
speaker comes to Ann Arbor highly
recommended. She is of Russian par-
entage, having lived in America 20
years, after leaving her home at the
age of 13. The titles of her talks are
varied, but it is said that, in reality,
she has but one subject. Whether she
speaks on "The Responsibility of
American Citizenship" or "The Public
School as a Test of American Faith,"
or "Jewish Life in the Pale," at the
end the hearer realizes that he has
been listening to a plea for liberty,
democracy and human rights.
Congressman Hobson, who will
speak on "The Era of Uplift" in Hill
auditorium Nov. 2, will be remem-
bered as one of the heroes of the
Spanish-American war. The sinking
of the collier "Merrimac" will long
linger in the minds of Americans. His
books, "The Fortification of the Pan-
ama Canal," "The Disappearing Gun
Afloat," and others dealing with the
defense of the country, have been well
Elected congressman from his na-
tive state, Alabama, Mr. Hobson cre-
ated quite a furore by introducing a
bill in Congress which brought up the
question of deciding nation-wide pro-
hibition by a popular vote. The Bill
was defeated by two votes only.
Probably the question of prohibition
will be broached by the speaker in his
address, but the topic "The Era of
Uplift," will be discussed generally.
Professor Lomax, commonly desig-
nated as the "author of cowboy bal-
lads," is scheduled to speak on Jan. 22,
1916. Where the lecture will take
place has not been decided, butit will
surely be a great attraction. The
speaker, recites his own poems, and
Prof. T. C. Trueblood, of -the depart-
ment of oratory, has in his possession
letters from both 'Yale and Harvard,
which tell of. the immense success
which Professor Lomax scored in
those places.,
This year seems to have much in
store for lovers of good lectures,
as the standard of the speakers is ex-
ceptional. These lectures will not be
included on the tickets which the Or-
atorical association is now distribut-
ing among the students, but tickets
will be on sale in good season.

position of arum Major to be Contest-
ed for; Drums, Clarinets and
Basses in Demand
First steps in the task of selecting
Michigan's 1915-1916 band will be
taken at 7:00 o'clock tonight, when
Captain Wilfred Wilson directs the in-
itial tryout in University Hall. More
than 200 men already have signed up
for places on the band, and those try-
outs who have not "yet gotten their
names on the lists will be given the
opportunity to do so from 2:00 o'clock
to 5:00 o'clock this afternoon at the
band office in the engineering shops
building. Drums, clarinets and basses
are in especial demand. The position
of drum major will.also be contested
tonight during the regular tryouts.
The student body will be given its
first opportunity to hear the "Victors"
float across Ferry Field at the Mt.
Union game Saturday afternoon, when
the musicians make their first appear-
ance. According to its last year's cus-
tom, the band will gather before the
game in front of University hall, and
from there march down to the field.
It is hoped that 50 men will be in the
ranks by that time.
The men who are picked tonight
will rehearse tomorrow evening at
7:00 o'clock in University Hall, when
Captain Wilson will attempt to whip
the organization into shape for Satur-
day's game. As severa freshmen have
thus far attempted to sign up for the
band, the management has announced
that the 1919 men are not eligible.
New German Note Points to Speedy
Ending of Submarine Con-
(By the New York Sun Service.)
Washington, Oct. 5.-Vount Von
Bernstorff, the German ambassador,
presented a note to Secretary Lansing
today announcing a complete and un-
conditional disavowal of the German
submarine attack on the British liner
Arabic. Germany offers to complete-
ly indemnify the United States for the
lives of all Americans lost with the
ship. In the opinion of Washington
officials, this clears the way for the
complete settlement of the German-
American submarine controversy.
The note also contains the statement
that Emperor William has given or-
ders to all submarine commanders
which make the recurrence of similar
incidents out of the question.
"Y" Book Exchange Does Big Business
Y. M. C. A. book exchange-will be
open regularly at the "Y" office be-
tween the hours of 1:00-8:00 o'clock
daily, under the management of Ev-
erett Judson, '16E. Since the incep-
tion of the exchange last spring, it
has grown rapidly, and during the last
few days several hundred dollars'
worth of books have been received and
disposed of.
(By the New York Sun Service.)
Denver, Oct. 5.-That the miners of
the Colorado Fuel and Iron Company
will adopt the Rockefeller plan was
indicated by returns from the differ-

ent camps tonight. Up to a late hour
tonight the vote was 11 to 1 in favor
of the plan. Negative votes from the
remaining camps would not be enough
to overwhelm the plan. If the plan is
once fairly started, it is believed that
labor troubles in the camps will be at
an end.
Members of the bulletin committee
of the Union have just been announced
by the organization president. They
are: W. Lloyd Kemp, '17, chairman;
Stevens Clark, '19, Russell D'Ooge, '19,
and John Coffin, '19. These men will
keep announcements posted in obvi-
ous places, especially on the big bul-
letin boards in the Union clubhouse.
Harry G. Gault, '15-'17L, president of
the Union, will be, found in his office
for a few weeks from 4:00 to 6:00
o clock every afternoon. -

To Start lunovation to Teach Cheers,
Songs and Traditions to First-
Year Men
Freshmen of the class of 1919 will
be started in the right direction. A
huge mass meeting to be held at 7:15
o'clock Friday evening in Hill audi-
terium has been planned for them by
the student council. Traditions, cus-
toms, songs and cheers, dear to the
hearts of Michigan men, will be taught
to the yearlings.
The idea of a meeting of .this kind
for the first-year men is new on the
Michigan campus, and was planned
by the council last spring. Francis
T. Mack, '16L, who was appointed to
take charge of the affair, has' arranged
a program of talks, songs and cheers.
Dean Henry M. Bates of the Law
School will be the faculty speaker,
and he will address the freshmen on
what is expected of Michigan men.
The customs and traditions of the
Michigan campus will be expounded
by Werner W. Schroeder, '14-'16L.
Francis F. McKinney, '16L, managing
editor of The Michigan Daily, will
give a talk emphasizing the right kind
of spirit to be shown at athletic events
and inter-class contests. Harry G.
Gault, '15-'17L,- president of the Mich-
igan Union, will tell the freshmen
about the Union.
Harold Smith, '16, varsity track cap-
tain, will lead the freshmen in Mich-
igan cheers, while Stanley Wilson, '16,
leader of the Glee club, will lead them
in Wolverine songs which will be
thrown upon a large screen. It is ex-
pected that the varsity band will turn
out to entertain the verdant gather-
ing, but this is not certain. Earl V.
Moore, '12, of the school of music, will
render an organ program.
Ofocial Figures in Literary College
Give Gain of 400 Over Last
Year's Number
Law and Homeopathic Medical Schools
Show Decrease
Previous reoords for enrollment in
the College of Literature, Science and
the Arts are likely to be shattered this
year. The present gain of 400 over
the figure at the same time last year
is 150 over the former high-water
mark of 250, and double the average
increase for previous years, according
to an official announcement yesterday.
Enrollment progressed satisfactori-
ly in all the colleges yesterday, the
Dental School registration furnishing'
the big surprise by reaching 325, 30
better than the mark of 295, the total
for 1914-15, with several days left for
enrollment. Figures for the Lawi
School fell still further behind last4
year's total, when they dropped to 334,
a decrease of 59. This decrease is un-
doubtedly due to the new two-year
preparatory requirement.

The Graduate School entered upon1
the day with a margin. of 29 over the
number of registrations the same time
last year, but this margin had been
reduced to three before the day was
over. The School of Pharmacy enroll-
ment showed a gain of 15, the Medical
School, one of eight, while the Homeo-
pathic School showed a slight decrease
from last year's figures.
Exact figures of the registration in
the Colleges of Engineering and Ar-
chitecture were unavailable for publi-
cation yesterday, but it is believed
that they are slightly above last year's
figure. -
In the Literary College, Registrar
A. G. Hall reported that 298 persons
had received advance credit, as
against 242 last year. There were 75
more freshmen entered by diploma so
far this year in the same college, as
compared with the total up to the same
time last year.

Will Concentrate Present Campaign
Upon Campus Solicitation for
Several Days
Inaugurate New System for Recording
Members who have signed up with
the Michigan Union during the past
several days now number slightly
more than 1,350, according to reports
given out last night by D. R. Ballen-
tine, '16, general chairman of the
Union membership committee.
This figure falls short of last year's
record at this same date by nearly 200,
but Harry G. Gault, '15-'17L, president
of the Union, explains this shortage by
the fact that hundreds of men are still
hesitating between paying the :annual
fee and 'trting the life memjbership
payment. The campaign was begun
last Friday and will be concentrated
upon campus solicitation for several

W'ork on Construction Will Probably
Begin Early in
With more than the required $60,000
subscribed, the Students' Christian
Association was able, last Thursday
night to claim the conditional $60,000
gift of John D. Rockefeller, promised
a year ago for a new Young Men's
Christian Association building for the
men attending the University of Mich-
According to an announcement
given out by Judge Victor H. Lane,
of the Law School, and president of
he board of trustees of the associa-
:ion, the margin of safety in the sub-
scriptions is a narrow one, but enough
ias been pledged to make the build-
.ng a certainty.
The campaign which has been con-
ducted since the first of June, has
been under the direction of Welling-
on H. Tinker, secretary of the asso-
ciation, and more than a half dozen
students have been assisting him in
he work. In addition to this corpse
of workers, Coach Fielding H. Yost,
f the Varsity football squad, and
Coach Dan McGuigin, of the Vander-
bl1t University team, assisted in the
work in Detroit during the months
>f August and September.
The Rockefeller gift is payable by
July 1, 1916, and the first payments
will be made as soon as the proper
>redentials have been received, show-
ing that the sum demanded has been
raised by the local organization.
Contracts for the building will be
let probably during December, but
the actual construction will not be
started until March or April. The as-
sociation hopes to be able to house
its fall work in the new building, next

Of more than 250 students to whom
Gault wrote recently ,only 150 have
reported to help in the canvass now
waging. Each canvasser has been sup-
plied with books containing 10 mem-
bership blanks, and nearly half have
reappeared at the Union offices.
The campaigners who do the bet
work in this campaign will be chosen
to the more important jobs on the per-
manent membership solicitation, or
the house-to-house campaign, which
will start within about two weeks.
Workers who show up to the best ad-
vantage will be promoted to positions
on the opera and other important com-
mittees later in the year
A new system has been inaugurated
at the Union this year of recording
signatures of yearly members. All
signatures .inscribed since 1907 have
been filed in the opening pages of a
huge ledger, in which names will be
written of yearly signers for at least
several years in the future. Evans
Holbrook, '97-'00L, was the first sign-
er in the volume, and Phillip Lovejoy,
'16, has been the first to pen his name
on themembership rolls .for the past
two years.
University ISchool Arranges Attractive
Program of Numbers by
' Artists
The series of complimentary faculty
recitals given last year by the univer-
sity school of music proved so popular
that the management has arranged a
similar series of free concerts- for this
season, which will be of even greater
interest to the student body and gen-
eral public.
Mr. Albert Lockwood, who has re-
sumed his work as the head of the
piano departments and Miss Leonora
Allen, who has recently ben added
to the voal faculty, will both appear
from timn to time in these recitals in
