Tipperary Youth, the Irishmen, Have
Pat Stamina and Punch Into Move-
Dr. David Starr Jordan, chancellor
of Leland Stanford Junior university,
delivered broadsides into the warring
nations' depravity and lack of scien-
tific amelioration of the evils of war,
in his lecture Sunday night in the
Methodist church. He spoke on, "The
Last Cost of War," and an immense
crowd listened to his address.
Among the points brought out by
the speaker were: the cost of billions
of dollars for which the world will
groan for centuries; the sweeping off
of the most promising youth of Eu-
rope to be replaced by the less sturdy
and less brave, and the rising import-
ance of feminism whose ranks will
not be rent by bullets as the men's
are; that German strategists are di-
rectly responsible for the outbreak of
the conflict, and that the United
States' preparation is a side issue to
the big question of peace .
"Every nation now engaged in the
struggle is stark, raving mad," de-
clared Dr Jordan in his address.
"They can see no farther than three
or four years into the future, where
they should compute by centuries.
They can perhaps never obliterate
the scars on the European map; they
can never replace the fittest European
manhood which is being ground un-
der the principle of the survival of
the unfit.. Murder is in its most furi-
ous triumph, and peace at any price
no longer has any meaning.
Dr. Jordan says that the Tipperary
youth; the Irish, have been the stam-
ina and punch in all the British
movements. American Red Cross

"-'o such opportunity," declared Li-
brarian William W. Bishop yesterday,
"has ever been afforded in the state of
Michigan to see side by side the rich-
ly illustrated manuscripts and the
early printed books as will be offered
in the three-day exhibition of valuable
books and manuscripts which opens
in Alumni Memorial hall at 9:00
o'clock this morning.
W. M. Voynich, collector of valu-
able book< and dealer in Paris, Lon-
don and Florence, is the owner of the
the collection of book s and manu-
scripts which is valued at over a mil-
lion dollars. The collection has been
on exhibition in this country since
January 1, and was brought here be-
cause of the great danger from Zep-
pelin raids to which all valuables
have been subjected in Europe since
the beginning of the war.
Arrangements have been made for
interested parties in Detroit to come
here and visit the exhibit. It is ex-
pected that many thousands will avail
themselves of the opportunity to see
it, for the attendance in Chicago av-
eraged over 2,000 per day for five

workers have accomplished exactly
the same thing in hospital work.
The speaker's definition of peace
was impressive. "First there is the
fireside brand, which means laziness,
fruitlessness on the olive branch, and
stagnation; second, there is the armed
peace, where governments pile up on
their frontiers lofty armaments which
are fated to topple and crash as they
did in 1914. Lastly there is the peace
of work, progress and science, which
is incarnated in the Red Cross work
of today."

The magnificent endowment of
$700,000.00 left by the will of M. Cora
Dow, Of Cininnati, for the use of the
Cincinnati Symphony orchestra, places
that well known organization on a
solid financial basis and insures a
multitude of admirers the continua-
tion of such concerts as have already
won dererved appreciation. The enor-
mous expene of supporting such a
mnusical organization has long exceed-
ed the box-office receipts. The exist-
ence of the organization has hitherto
been made possible by contributions
from the sympathetic and generous.
The liberality of M. Cora Dow leaves
the Symphony Orchestra no longer an
organization struggling for existence;
it makes of it an institution, secure
against rinancial upheavals and free
to accomplish new marvels in its
chosen realm of music.
The program for the second con-
cert of the Choral Union series to be
given by the Flonzaley Quartet is an-
nounced as follows:
Quartet in D major.....Cesar Franck
Poco lento-Allegro
s cherzo
"Three Pieces for Quartet" (Man-
Quartet in 1) minor ,Op. 78, No.
2...... .............Haydn
Andante pin Tosto Allegretto
The phenomenal success of the
Flonzaley organization in the rendi-
tion of chamber-music is attested by
the increasing demand for their con-
certs by the most critical music lovers
of both America and Europe. Ann
Arbor is assured a delightful music
feast in the above program and every
music lover should set aside Tuesday
evening, November 23, to attend the
concert of the Flonzaley Quartet.
Regents Hold Second Meeting Tonight
The Board of Regents will hold its
second meeting of the year in the re-
gents' room in the law building to-
night, following the opening dinner
given in the new Martha Cook dormi-
tory, at which the board will be pres-
ent. The session is scheduled to start
at 9:00 o'clock,.
Several important questions have
been hanging fire from the meeting of
October 15, and these will probably be
brought up again at tonight's meeting.
FreshmanD entists Hold Class Smoker
With President Stevens presiding,
the fresh dent class held a smoker at
the Union last night. Addresses by
Dr. Whitman, Dr. Howell and Dr. E.
0. Gillespie, of the State Board, were,
interspersed with selections by the
"Fresh-Dent Four."
War with its most pitiful results is
depicted by the best known living
Russian writer, Leonid Andrew', in a
six-act drama eneitled, "The Sorrows
of Belgium.'
The plot is of little consequence,

but the description is especially vivid
and heart-rending. The family of
Belgium's greatest poet, is left in a
sorrowful plight by the German inva-
sion. The question of flooding a part
of beautiful reclaimed Belgium be-
comes critical, and Emil Grelieux,
known as the Conscience of the Peo-
ple, gives us his reluctant consent.
Another scene caricatures a com-
{nnnder of the German army, and thus
the whole nation. To the general the
suggested act of cutting the dikes is
1"absurd;" it couldn't possibly be true.
The characterization and descrip-
tion are most vivid. Your sympathy is

"One of the most successful conven-
tions ever held," is the opinion of those
members of the faculty who have re-
centy returned from the State Teach-
ers' convention teid in Saginaw last
Thursday and Friday. Between 6,000
and 7,000 teachers, not only from the
state but from all parts of the coun-
try, attended the session and many
persons 'now in the public eye ad-
dressed this gathering. Among this
number were Mary Antin, ex-President
Taft and Chancellor David Starr Jor-
A Michigan luncheon was held on
Friday, at which President Harry B.
Hutchins spoke in behalf of the Mich-
igan Union project. Replying to this,
Dr. Jordan said that he was heartily
in accord with the plan, and espcialiy
since he was in reality a grandchild
of Michigan, alluding to the fact that
a Michigan alumnus had founded Cor-
nell, and a Cornell alunum had done
the same service for Leland Stan-
ford, Jr.
Prof. Francis W. Kelsey was invited
by the chair to take part in the dis-
cussion of the Latin-English section.
Professor Kelsey made several re-
marks relative to the teaching of Eng-
lish by the medium of a foreign lan-
guage in the seventh and eighth grades
of the public schools. Prof. J. G Win-
ter addressed the classical section on
a subject dealing with the Odyssey.
Mr. Jesse L. Thornton, of the de-
partment of engineering English, cre-
ated much favorable comment on his
paper, "Oral Composition." It is the
theory of Mr. Thornton that the true
value of oral composition is coming
to be felt more and more in educational
circles, and that the time is not far
distant when a course in this subject
will be planned from the first to the
twelfth grade in the best schools of
the country.
Mr. H. L. Senseman delivered a pa-
per on the teaching of poetry to chil-
dren and the ways in which it might
best be appreciated.
In his address on "The Case Against
English Grammar," Prof. J. R. Brumm
gave voice to some statements not
short of revolutionary in their nature.
He vigorously assailed the teaching of
grammar in the lower grades, main-
taing that the study of grammar was
of such a scientific nature that it
should be reserved until the last year
of the high school curriculum. He
further asserted that a knowledge of
grammar, or what takes the place of
English grammar, was not necessary
to correct speaking and writing, and
that a few hours' study would put the
student in possession of all the neces-
sary facts about grammer. In the
opiion of Professor Brumn, the study
of the classics should be continued,
not in the old-fashioned way of mi-
nutely exakining them sentence by
sentence and by the delving into the
intricacies of style, but they should'
be read in greater number and for the
purpose of introducing the readers to
realistic life pictures and for pure en-
joyment, as well as for the sake of
acquiring literary taste.
At the meeting of the English sec-

Mrs. Samuel P. Lockwood, violins;
Mr. Anthony J. Whitmire, viola; and
Mr. Le N. Parker, violoncello.

Vecalf aculty, will be heard in two

The general public, as well as stu-
dents of the University School of Mu-
sic, and the University of Michigan

'atrons are requested to be on hand
promptly at 4:15 as the doors will be

Editor The Michigan Daily:
Permit -me to compliment the stu-
dent body of the University of Micl-
igan for its genuine spirit of sports-
manship. I have never seen a finer
courtesy done than that accorded our
ittle Syracuse delegation by your
splendid band. It was the brightest
feature of the gane, and while 1 ainm
in no wise authorized to speak for
anyone but myself, I know I voice the
sentiments of every Syrausan, in ex-
pressing our and my thanks, to the
band, and to you all.
Very sincerely yours,

.Raroon Captain Upholds Summer Ball
Chicago, Nov. 1-Atletes who are
in need of money with which to pay
their college expenses should be per-'
mitted to play summer professional
ball, according to Captain Shull of
the Varsity nine. Shull claims that
if a man is to be declared professional
for summer baseball work, then he
should have the same punishment for
taking a position as life saver on a
bathing beach or as an instructor in
a gymnasium or park.

Champaign, Ill., Nov. 1.--Governor
Governor Dunne Sees Illinois Game
Dunne came over from Springfield to
see the Minnesota game, and was met
by an escort consisting of six com-
panies from the first regiment, and
the first University band. He was es-
corted to the Woman's building, and
then, to the game. A salute of 17
guns was fired by the battery as thet
party came on the field. After the
game, a reception was held 'at the
Woman's building, and everyone was
given a chance to meet the governor.
Ring Lardner Escapes Weleomers
Champaign, Ill., Nov. 1.-Ring. W.
Lardner, the Chicago Tribune's fam-
ous humorist, and writer of the "You
Know Me Al" stories, came over from
Chicago to write up the Illinois-Min-
nesota gme. He was met at the
train by a crowd of fraternity men,
but managed to dodge them and went
to the Beardsley. Several days ago
the sporting writer made the predic-
tion that Minnesotawould triumph
over the Illini by a score of 13-7.
However, he told the students not to
be downhearted, for he had been
known to be wrong.
Washington Coach Has Perfect Record
Seattle, Wash., Nov. 1.-Gilmour
Dobie, who is football coach at the
University of Washington, has not
met a defeat in 10 years. During that
time his teams have played' a total
of 68 games.
Mr. Dobie is and has been for the
past seven years coach of the football
team for the University of Washing-I
ton. For two years prior to this he
was coach at the North Dakota Agri-
cultural college and the year before
that he had charge of the South Side
School at Minneapolis. He does net
believe in a training stable, and is
opposed to spring training. He be-
lieves in the psychology of football
more than he does in anything else.
lie says:-
"I want my players to be good,
healthy, normal American boys, but
on the day of the game they must be
something different. On the day of
the game they must look upon the1

college as a patriot looks upon the
flag during the period of the nation's
peril. I want my boys to go into a
game firmly and thoroughly believing
that they stand a mighty good chance
of being defeated, 'but that they also
have a small fighting chance of win-
ning. And I want them worked up
to such a mental pitch that they will
fight for that chance with every ounce
of energy in their bodies. Psychology,
you see. Psychology stands for eight-
tenths of football, You can't have1
merely a normal mental condition,
not if you expect to win. And that's
why I say psychology is eight-tenths
of football."
Ask Reinstatement of Five Yale Men
New Haven, Nov. 1.-In answer to
inquiries made at the offices of the
Yale University Athletic association in
regard to the published reports that
Dean Briggs, chairman of the Har-
vard Athletic committee, had sent a I
letter to Professor Robert N. Corwin,I
requesting that the five Yale under-
graduates who recently withdrew from
intercollegiate athletics should rejoin
their teams, it was said that Profes-
sor Corwin was out of town and that1
no official statement could be made
in his absence. It was admitted, how-1
ever, that letters. had been receivedj
both from [en Briggs, of Harvard,l
and Dean MeClenahan, o Princeton,
expressing the desire of the players
and the student body generally at E
both Harz ard and Prin "ton that theI
five Yale players mei,,oned might
again represent 'Yale in intercollegi-
ate athletics. -

side. Popular opinion in both states
is pro-Entente; Roumania because of
racial connection with Rome and
friendly proximity with Russia.
The Teuton occupation and steam-
roller invasion of Serbia is making a
profound impression on the doubtful
states. At the same time, the allies
seem unable to make any consistent
offensive in the west; the French min-
istry appears unstable; the English
cabinet is bitter, unwilling to send
much military backing to suffocating
Serbia; the Dardanelles troops show
scant results; and the English king
seems pestered by ill luck. Only a
strip of Vosges hills and Galicia
marshes remain occupied by the kai-
ser's forces.
Most authorities point out the need
of immediate Entente activities, espe-
cially in Serbia, where the allies have
been caught napping. The British and
French should land at least 150,000
troops at Saloniki at once to join with
the Serbs. There are now 200,000 Teu-
tons marching south from the Danube
and the Save, and there are probably
as many Bulgars entering Serbia at the
east border. Another 200,000 Bulgar-
ians lie entrenched several miles back
of the Roumanian borders.
The allies have offered bribes of ter-
ritory like Cyprus to the Greeks, but
the Greeks are clamoring for protec-
tion from immediate invasion, for
breaking the Berlin-Constantinople
railroad connections, and for keeping
Bulgaria busy on the defensive.
Russians have advanced along near-
ly the whole eastern front, except near
Riga, and have captured 150,000 Ger-
man and Austrian soldiers along the
west banks of the Strypa. The Rus-
sian winter is setting in and will test
analogies so frequently made about
Hindenburg and Napoleon. German
strategy is supreme in the sudden
overwhelming of Poland, and British
stubbornness or pride is apparently
preventing them from removing a part
of their forces into Serbia.
Bulgars have driven through the
northeastern tip of Serbia and effected
a junction with Mackensen around
Negotin; they have also captured much
of the railroad 30 miles from Nish,
which city is in dire peril. Germans
have advanced 30 or 40 miles south of
Belgrade into Serbia, and are now
closing on the main line of the Ser-
bian defense, which is among the foot-
hills of the Balkan mountains.
Italians have accomplished more
during the last 10 days than in any
previous month. They have vigorous-
ly advanced along the whole Trentino
front and have surrounded the power-
ful Austrian fortress of Gorizia, which
is likely to fall at any moment,
The French and English are practi-
cally inactive in the western front,
though their advances toward an im-
portant railway north of Tahure are
The Cosmopolitan club has started
a campaign the aim of which is to
increase its membership to 250, if pos-
sible. The result of the first day's
work was encouraging, several stu-

dents having signified their intention
of becoming members. The expenses
of joining the club havebeen lowered
this year, and the sum of one dollar
has been made to include the initia-
tion fee and the dues for one year.
The club will hold a social in Harris
hall at 3:00 o'clock Sunday. A special
musical program has been arranged,
in which a varied talent will be given
a chance 'to perform. Refreshments
will be served and a general good time
is expected.
