Saturday Afternoon
Gothic hall of Martha Cook building
housed many celebrities when Govern-
or Ferris and Mrs. Ferris, President-
Emeritus James B. Angell, President
Harry h. Hutchins And Mrs. Hutchirs
attended the "old-fashioned" di nner
given by the hoard of gov1 ners as a
part of the informal opening exercises
last night
Mrs. Cook itroduced Dr Angell,
who was the first peiker. He do-
scribed the difficulties of the first wo-
lien who caie t) the uiversity in
<869-70 Dr. AngeIL introduced the
next rpeakcr, President harry 13.
DCoedueation here has been a dcid-
tad success. i. In in favor of it and
shall continue to be so long as (codu-
cation fits the women for the duties of
life-for the home as well as pubbe
duty," said President Hutchins.
The next speaker, Goyernor Ferris,
also placed much emphasis upon the'
home life, saying in part: "The prob~
lem of this age, of our public schools
and colleges, is, 'How can we bring
to the home of today through thec
schools that which the old home once,
had?"!
This idea of home life, which was
the keynote of the speeches, was also
parried out in the dinner itself. After
the oyster soup, two roast turkeys'
were carved and the usua urkeyish
accompaniments, cranberrie minced1
pie, pumpkin pie plum pudding, were1
served,
After the dinner there was a faculty
reception at which about 800 were
present, the resident students assist- t
ing. On Saturday afternoon the build-
ing will be open for inspection by thet
residents of Ann Arbor.

D.IJ.R. PURCHAS[
BY CITY D[F[AUGD
(By The Detroit Free Press News
Service.)
Detroit, Mich., Nov. 2.--After one of
the aost bitterly waged campaigns in
tha history of Detro4t, the proposed
contract for the purchase of the street
railway lines by the city went down
to defeat in the election held today.
The proposition, which required a
three-fifths vote to put it through, was
snowed under by a majority of close
to 3,000. The voting was upon two
propositions, one the ratification of
the contract between the board of
street railway commissioners and the
company, the second the amendment
to the charter which would make the
plan adaptable.
The first was the vital portion, as
without it the charter amendment is
of no value. The municipal ownership
amendment showed a slight majority
in favor, but not enough to carry it to
victory. The annexation propositions
which were voted upon carried with
big majorities.
Complete returns from 201 precincts
out, cf the 2 3 in the city showed at
2:30 o'clock this morning the follow-
ing on the street car contract:
Yes . , ...... . ...... 32,312
No ........ ......35,202
Majority against....... 2,990
Three-fifths needed ...........40,508

ENTIRE MALE STUDENT
BY TO BEINLU
Plan to Make Union Picture as Large
as Possible to Show Present
Building Inadequacy
Not only the undergraduate mem-
hers of the Michigan Union, but also
the entire male student and faculty
body, will be included in the picture
to be taken at 12:05 o'clock tomorrow
at the Union clubhouse.
The purpose of the picture will be
to show the inadequacy of the present
structure in meeting the needs of the
5,000 members and prospective mem-
bers of the Union enrolled at Michi-
gan. It will be sent to all of the vari-
ous local campaign cmmittees in all
parts of the country, and will be pub-
lished in a majority of the newspapers
throughout the United States, who
have already given their support to
the "million-dollar clubhouse" project.
"The larger the number of men who
turn out for this picture the more will
it fulfill its purpose," said President
Harry G. Gault, '15-'17L, of the Mich-
igan Union, last night. "And it is up
to every Michigan man to co-operate
in this way toward its success."

cations point to a record-breaking au-
dience Onght. Yectrrday's scattered
reports of the ticket sellers mounted
up to appriximately 2,:100 sales, while
there are still more committeemen to
be heard from.
The entire program was rehearsed
last night in the auditorium, consider-
able time being spent on each number
in order to bring the whole perform-
ance to a high state of perfection.
Those who witnessed the rehearsal
are confident that it will "get across,"
as it seemed thoroughly inoculated
with the "come-back" spirit.
"Get Pennsy!" is to be the motto of
the evening. Several songs are to be
presented expressing this sentiment,
while articles included in the pro-
grams that are to be distributed will
demonstrate conclusively why it is
that it will be practically impossible
to beat the Yost team a week from
Saturday.
A galaxy of Michigan musicians and
songsters is to uphold the musical end

REGENTS APPOINT WENLEY TO
A IAN BE ON EXECUTIVE BOARD
Ro tine business was transacted at
the meeting of the board of regents
last night.
Prof. R. M. Wenley was appointed
to succeed himself for a term of seven
years as a meimber of the executive
board of the Graduate school. - The
board approved the action of President
Harry B. Hutchins in extending an in-
vitation to the State Grange, which
will meet in Ann Arbor some time in
December, -
The regents acknowledged the gift
of a $500 loan fund from Mrs. Joseph-
ine P. McGowan, widow of former Re-
gent McGowan.

_ibuted on athletic book coupons will
reach a mark around 5,200. The sale
to date may thus be estimated at 17,-
200 tickets
Tickets were put on general sale
yesterday morning at the athletic of-
rices in the Press building, and the
sale will continue through until Sat-
urday.
Never in the history of big games at
Michigan have so many students re-
fused to go into the cheering section,
which will be located in the north
stand, and as a result the rooting sec-
tion will be small. Last year the four
sections given to the block "M" were
filled by seniors and juniors, but this
year over half of those four sections
will be filled by sophomores and fresh-
men., It is estimated that not over
100 seniors will be located in the
cheering section.
The general demand from both
alumni and students this year has
been for tickets in the south stand,
while both students and alumni might
have secured tickets 12 and 15 yards
nearer the center of the field by tak-
ing north stand tickets.
Sophomore Pharmics Elect Officers

mic class held yesterday afternoon the

Douglas, Ariz., Nov. 2.-The repulse
of repeated attacks on Agua Prieta to-
day by the forces of Villa has resulted
in the withdrawal of Villa to await
re-enforcements and munitions.
Since early morning the city has
been exposed to a raking fire from Vil-
la's machine guns and rifles, cming
;rom the assault on Agua Prieta. On
the American side 11 more deaths are
the result. Two American soldiers in
the trenches along the border have
been killed. Several civilians have
also been hit by flying bullets. A
number of buildings in the town suf-
fered from the rain of bullets.
At 3:00 a. in. Villa made a deter-
mined effort to take the breastworks
of the Carranza forces .by storm, but
the latter exploded a number of mines
in the path of the attacking troops and
forced the Villistas to retire. General
Calles, the leader of the Carranza
troops, estimated that Villa lost 300
men.
At daybreak the fight continued In
the form of the artillery duel of yes-
terday, and in the afternoon a desul-
tory fire was kept up.
Eagle Pass, Texas, Nov. 2.-The chief
representative of the Carranza forces
in a message to the state department
today said that his government was
doing all in its power to prevent fur-
ther outrages to the lives and property
of Americans. Carranza has expressed
regret over the deaths of American
soldiers and civilians, and will in-
crease his border guards, and will ar-
rest everyone carrying concealed
weapons.
.GridironStarere
Members of the All-Fresh football
team are rejoicing today upon the an-
nouncement of a new member to their
squad, although it will be some days
before the candidate will make- his
appearane in a suit upon the football
field.
Coach Douglass wore a big broad
smile when told of the arrival of the
newcomer, and so much does the
tutor think of him, that he now pirom-
ises, with this addition, that his team
of yearlings will go through the en-
tire season without -a defeat chalked
up against them.
According to the mentor, the new
man looks like promising material for
one of the regular positions, and has
already been placed on the training
table as one of the regular members
of the coach's "family."
A son was born to Mr. and Mrs.
Prentiss Douglass this morning at St.
Joseph's hospital, and the weight of
the future gridiron star was given as
nine pounds.
