To Michian Men
By Ring W. Lardner
1 have a message for you,
A message of good cheer-
I have not picked a winner
In any game this year.
I haven't picked a winner
In games of any sort;
In football or parchesi,
Or any other sport.
Then banish Gloom, you rooters,
And substitute a grin-
For in today's sweet pastime
live picked Cornell to win.
ALUMNI SPIRIT IS
I. of M. Club of Philadelphia Requests
Privilege of Quartering
RESERVATIONS ON TRAIN OPEN
Further evidences of enthusiasm
among Philadelphia alumni over the
Penn-Michigan game on next Satur-
day came into the, band office yester-
day in the form of a telegram to S. J.
Hoexter, faculty manager of the musi-
ciaus. It read:
"The U. of M. club of Philadelphia
request it as a courtesy that the band
be lodged at the Hotel Walton, the
Michigan headquarters. The club will
pay for the rooms. Wire care U. S.
Mint. T. L. Comparettis."
This means that the Quaker City
alumni are doing all in their power to
make their reception to the visitors a
cordial one, and it only rests with the
Michigan supporters to make the
game a success from the enthusiasm
Wednesday night's Band-Cer-Tain-
ment was a success from the financial
standpoint, as approximately $700 had
been turned in up to last night. It is
imperative, however, that those ticket
sellers who have not yet reported, do
so at once. The band office in the en-
gineering shops building is open for
reports every afternoon.
Reservations in the special train
that is to go to Philadelphia Thursday
afternoon may be made at the Michi-
gan Union or the Bond street store,
any day up to the time the train
leaves. Any surplus made on the trip
is to be rebated. The rate has been
fixed at $28.25, a lower berth costing
$7.00 and an upper berth $5.00. Those
who wish may double up in the berths.
This train will carry the rooters and
the band, the Varsity leaving Wed-
nesday, and the scrubs Friday.

TAFT ADVOCATES PREPAREDNESS
Thinks There is no Danger of America
Boston, Mass., Nov. 5.-Reasonable
preparedness was advocated by former
President William Howard Taft in a
speech made here today. He says that
he is no pacificist, but that the nation
should not be left helpless.
"The nation should be in a position
to command justice from other coun-
tries. We should not be put in a posi-
tion where other powers can take any
advantage. There is no danger of
America succumbing to militarism, be-
cause the spirit of the nation is en-
tirely opposed to that sort of prepared-
Prominent Alumni Inspire Old Spirit
of Fight in Rooters Present at
COACH YOST GIVES SHORT TALK
Snap and ginger stuck out all over
the big mass meeting for the Cornell
game last night in Hill auditorium.
It was the last yellfest of the football
season, and each one of the speakers
aimed directly at getting the team and
the student body keyed up for today's
battle with the Ithacans.
Three speakers were on the pro-
grain : Judge James 0. Murfin, '95-
'96L; Judge George P. Codd, '91, and
George McMahon, '16. Coach Field-
ing H. Yost also gave a short talk
after the meeting had officially closed.
Judge Murfin, always a favorite at
Michigan mass meetings, was cheered
lustily when he got to the heart of
the situation as regards Michigan's
previous defeats this season. "At both
the M. A. C. and Syracuse games," he
said, "I offered the alibi that 'Michi-
gan can't win every game! But, by
heck," he continued, "we can't lose
them all either."
The speaker for the alumni, many
of which occupied a reserved section
near the stage, was Judge Codd. His
viewpoint was that good sportsman-
ship was as essential as victory to
the athletic reputation of the univer-
George McMahon, '16, the student
speaker, tried to show that Cornell's
football team is not as strong as it is
touted to be. He said that the only
real victory that the Red and White
has won, the Harvard game, was se-
cured by sheer luck. Michigan's All-
Fresh team would stand a good chance
of beating Cornell, he claimed, giving
comparative scores of the All-Ftesh-
Heidelberg, Heidelberg-Oberlin, and
Oberlin-Cornell games to prove his
Coach Yost, who talked for a few
minutes after the singing of the "Yel-
low and Blue," said that victory today
would depend largely upon the spirit
of fight which the team and rooters
show at the game.
University women, who were to
have been featured in the rooting,
were somehow lost in the fracas, and
were not given an opportunity, as wo-
men, to show what they could do in
the way of real noise.

NAVY USES WIRELESS TELEPHONE
Secretary Daniels Sends First Message
to Test Wireless Telephone
for Use In Navy
Washington, Nov. 5.-Secretary Dan-
iels today sent the first naval order
by wireless telephone. The test
was for the purpose of demonstrating
the practicability of wireless telephony
for the navy, both in times of peace
and war. It was carried on by the

SLAIN STILL ALIVE
Mea Whom Vilb Claimed Killed by
Carranza Shell Are Prisoners
OBREGON COMES TO AGUA PRIETA
Naco, Arizona, Nov. 5.-Dr. H. R.
Thicher and Dr. James Miller and the
two chauffeurs who were reported
killed yesterday in the battle of Agua
Prieta are alive and well in Cananea,
the prisoners of Villa there.
Dr. H. C. Wickman, who was a pris-
oner of the chieftain, and who reached
the border today, claims to have seen
the men. George Shaw a truck driver
who took supplies to the Villa forces,
and who returned to Naco today, said
that he saw the men alive last night.
Officials of the Cananea Consolidated
Copper company took the matter up
with Villa and he assured them that
the men were alive. He said that he
had made a mistake in reporting them
dead. It is thought that he attempted
to arouse the sentiments of the Amer-
ican people against Carranza and his
government by stating that four United
States citizens had been killed by Car-
ranza shrapnel. The four men who
were killed were teamsters who had
joined Villa of their own free will.
Villa left Naco today for Cananea.
From there he expects to proceed to
the Pacific coast towns of Sonora to
open a campaign. Carranza forces are
being rushed to attempt to overwhelm
the men who will follow Villa.
General Obregon, commander-in-
chief of the Carranza armies, is ex-
pected in Agua Prieta tomorrow to
take charge of the forces concentrated
there and to continue the campaign
against the remnants of Villa's army.
FOUR HUNDRED COUPLES PLAN
T1 DANCE IN COMBINED GYMS
Contingous Music Will be Feature of
Huge Cornell Game Ball;
Indications are that the Cornell
game dance to be given tonight in
the combined gymnasiums by the
Michigan Union will be one of the most
festive social events of the year. Al-
ready over 350 tickets have been sold
and many will probably be purchased
tomorrow. This assures an attendance
of at least 400 couples.
The feature of the occasion will be
continuous music. Two eight-piece
"Ike" Fisher orchestras, one situated
in Barber gymnasium, the other in
Waterman gym, will produce the mu-
sic. They will play alternately, one
starting immediately the other stops,
thus supplying incessant music and
thereby satisfying the most strenuous
Four hundred couples will trip the
light fantastic from 8:30 to 12:00
o'clock, being refreshed at intervals
from bowls of delicious Hawaiian
punch. Michigan alumni will be most
welcome at the party.
Prof. and Mrs. Frank H. Stevens and
Mr. and Mrs. Wilbur R. Humphreys
will be the chaperons for the evening.
Sings of Michigan
Just as the war is producing war
poetry, so the present football season
is causing the addition of poetic effort
on the part of many budding poets. In
a recent number of the Yale Daily
News, the following poem by Grant-
land Rice, appeared, showing that al-
though many years ago our rivals of-
ten refused to recognize our superior-
ity in football, now as they look back
they must acknowledge that in the
days of 1901-1905 Michigan was the
regular cock of the walk.
"I remember the stand at Thermopylae
The Greek Guard made one day;
I remember the legions that Caesar
To shatter the Gallic sway;
And I remember across the years,
Two banners that crowned the crest,
When Yale was king of the conquered
And Michigan ruled the west.
At night in my humble den I dream
Of the glories that used to be-
Of Hannibal taking the Alpine trail,
O Drake on the open sea.
And then I wander the ancient ways
To a dream that I love best,
When Yale was king of the conquered
And Michigan ruled the west."
And just an additional word--when
the next trip is made, back in the ar-
chives of football history, some men-
tion is going to be hade of That
Michigan Band and That Michigan
Spirit, and the cmeback in '15 that
started th'e Yost men on another vic-
torious march to victory.

Rear Admiral Winslow Goes to the
Rescue with Flagship San
Los Angees, Cal., Nov. 5.-With 61
passengers and a crew of , 1on bnrd,
the steamer Fort Brock, headed for
San Francisco from Guaymar, is
ashore and afire on the coast of Lower
California near San Jose Beleago.
This message was received by wire-
less from Rear Admiral Winslow, of
the flagship San Diego. The captain
of the Fort Brock got in touch with
Admiral Winslow, saying that he need-
ed assistance as soon as possible and
that fire was raging on board.
The situation is doubly serious in
that a heavy sea is running and there
is danger that the boat may go to
pieces. The point at which the ship
is aground is one of the most danger-
ous on the southern coast because it
is practically impossible to effect a
