Judge George P. Codd, '91, of De-
troit, will be an additional speaker at
the Cornell mass meeting tonight in
Hill auditoriujn. Judge Codd is a for-
mer mayor of Detroit, having held of-
fice during 1905 and 1906. He was
also a regent of the university in 1910
The list of speakers for the meeting,
including Judge Codd, is now composed
of Judge James O. Murfin, '95-'96L,
and George McMahon, '16. Joseph Fee,
'17L, is to be the chairman. "Big Bill"
Day, '00L, and "Vic" Pattengil, '11,
who also have been asked to talk at
the meeting, have not yet been heard
from, but it is almost certain that Day
at least will come to Ann Arbor for
Andrew J. Green, Jr., of Detroit, a
Michigan rooter, although a Cornell
graduate, had been invited to talk,
along with Day and Pattengil, but he
telegraphed last night that he could
not attend the meeting. The Varsity
band has been scheduled to play.
The tickets for the meeting, which
is to be the last of the football season,
will be given out today. Although the
committee in charge of the last mass
meeting received a number of com-
plaints from upper-classmen because
freshmen were being given an equal
chance to secure seats, the committee
in charge hopes to be able to seat the
men tonight so that the most enthusi-
astic will be on the lower floor, re-
gardless of class. Tickets for men will
be given out, beginning at 10:00 o'clock
this morning, at the desk in the Union
clubhouse. The women of the univer-
sity may secure admission cards from
10:30 to 12:00 o'clock and from 1:30
to 3:00 o'clock in the women's roon
in University hall.

a shower of shrapnel from the Agua

The reports have been confirmed by

El Paso, Texas, Nov. 4.-General
Villa, at the head of his dwindling and

by the Carranzista garrison from Agua

by troops rushed in from the south.
Villa appeared near Naco today, which
Carranza's general, Talles, is prepar-
lug to assault. Villa still holds stra-
tegic towns in Sonora in direct com-
munication with coast towns.
In spite of persistent reports flitting
across the American border that Villa
has lost Chihuahua, he gave out a
fairly optimistic report. He strongly
affirmed his rights to the supreme con--
miand in Mexico, relying on the author-
ity of the recent convention at Agua
"Furthermore, I support my troops
to the finish," stated Villa, "with suf-
ficient food and munitions. I do not
intend to throw over the fight."

NIDHT GYM CLASS IS CONSIDERED
Plans for the official welcome of the
Cornell team and accompanying band
of rooters were abandoned by the stu-
dent council at its meeting last even-
ing. It was shown that the rooters
will not arrive on any special train,
but will rather stop en route and come
into Ann Arbor at different times. The
Big Red team will stop Dff in Detroit,
where they will practice at the Coun-
try club, not coming to Ann Arbor till
just before the game, when they will
go direct to the clubhouse from the
A committee was appointed by Pres-
ientYT. P. Soddy, '16E, to investigate
into the feasibility of having the gym-
nasium open in the evenings, in order
to accommodate the students who are
compelled to spend their afternoons in
the laboratories. If it is found that a
sufficient number would take advan-
tage of the opportunity, an effort will
be made to obtain the necessary sanc-
tion for nightly gym work.
The council took action on the case
of H. E. Ramsey, '17E, who was in-
jured in the spring contests last May.
A committee was appointed to look
into the matter and to make a detailed
report at the next meeting.
A new student council member was
swvorn in at the meeting. He is E. T.
Olson, '16P, who was elected by his
class this fall.
Contrary to the general campus idea,
the meetings of the student council are
open to the public, and it is the wish
of the council that as many as are in-
terested should attend these meetings.
They are held at 7:15 o'clock every
other 'Thursday evening in room 105

On to Pennsy!
Student rooters and the band are to
leave Ann Arbor for their crusade
against the east Thursday night on a'
special train over the Pennsylvania
railroad, arriving at Philadelphia Fri-
day afternoon at about 3:00 o'clock.
There they will fall into a veritable
hornets' nest of enthusiasm, from the
signs of energy among Quaker City
alumni that are coming to Ann Arbor
The notable mass meeting that pre-
ceded the Harvard game last fall at
the Copley Plaza will be duplicated
on Friday night, when Philadelphia
alumni gather in the banquet rosin of
the Walton hotel to greet the Michigan
team and rooters. Every effort is be-
ing made by the alumni association
to give the visitors a real reception,
even to the extent of decorating por-
tions of the Walton, that has been se-1
lected as the Michigan headquarters
for the trip, with Maize and Blue.
The Jackies of the battleship Mich-
igan, stationed at the naval yard near
Philadelphia, have completed arrange-
ments to attend the gane in a body.
Their ship's band, composed of 16
pieces, will lead them onto the field,
playing the Michigan songs that it has
been practicing for the occasion. The
sea fighters have been devoting their
spare time for the last few days re-,
hearsing the Wolverine yells, so that
they will be able to join in with the
others from "down on the farm."
Definite rates for the trip on the
special train have not yeen been fixed.
The price will range between $35.25
and $33.25 for the round trip, includ-
ing berth, with a pcssibility of a re-
duction of this sum, however. No
profits will be derived from the trip.
ligo 'Wagonseil, '14, E. Rodgers Syl-
vester, '17, H(enry Rummel, '14-'161,
and E. W. H-aislip, '12-'14L, will give
information as to making reservations
and details of the trip. The place
which these men are to make their
headquarters will be announced later.
