The greatest victory for sammer

the vote was practically 21 to 1. The
least decisive ballot was recorded at
Wisconsin, where the ratio was a lit-

vorable the reports from Chicago and
Iowa may be--and there is no reason
for believing that they will be unfa-

be changed very little.

Ship Famine Possible After the War

Procession Made Up of Carriages,
Carts Loaded With Ammni-
tion and People
London, Nov. 5-A story of the Ser-
bian tragedy, received from Nish by
way of Milan, from the pen of Luciano
Magrini, an Italian war correspondent,
is printed by the Evening News. The
writer characterized the clearance o.f
northern Serbia as "the retreat of a
people, not an army."
In his account of the retreat the-cor-
respondent describes the unendinc'
procession on a road leading to th
south of, gun carriages, carts lad&
with war material, conveyances of al.
sorts bearing women, children, ol&
men, the sick and the wounded, with
at intervals flocks of sheep and drove.s
of pigs and of soldiers walking'side

Metropolitan OpernStars AssenAbl ig
Metropolitan opera stars have been
assembling for the past month in prep-
aration for the first performance of
he season the latter part of the nionth.
Several new or unusual operas will
be given during the winter. The new
Spanish opera of Enrique Granada,
"Goyesca," will be the feature per-
formance of the year. Impressario
Gatti Cazazza has arranged that the
noted Spanish soprano, Lucrezia Bori,
take the leading role. Gaetano Bava-
nogli will direct for the first time in
this country.
Bizet's "Les Pecheurs de Perles"
will be given for the first time under
adequate staging and direction. A new
German opera by Hermann Goetz will
be presented late in the season, with
Arthur Bodanzky conducting. Bo-
danzky is another new find of the en-
terprising impressario. Already he is
busy with his cast for this new opera,
"The Taming of the Shrew," which
promises to be a notable addition to
the company's repertoire of German
operas, which at present are rather
few in number.

ills Plea for his Countrymen's Rights
Criticized for Lacking Passion
to Move People
Ignace Jan Paderewski, the Polish
master pianist, received little applaust
in Uew York recently when he gave
the first of a series of concerts in
Carnegie hall, the proceeds of which
are to be used for the benefit of Polish
war sufferers, and his efforts to make
his English-speaking auditors under-
stand the desperate straits of his fel-
low countrymen fell rather fiat.
He preceded his concert by a much
criticized plea for his country's rights.
Critics say that it lacked the passion
necessary to move an audience. At
any rate, Mr. Paderewski received lit-
tle applause for his effort. There was
considerable unfavorable commotion, in
the galleries, where it was no doubt
impossible to catch even a word of the
hour-long appeal.
Acknowledged Superior in Lyric Work
There was also the usual amount of
criticism upon the customary intro-
duction of crashing chords preliminary
to the first number. The program of
Chopin selections consisted of the Ab
Ballade, the Bb Sonata 'and the G ma-
jor nocturne. Many critics lament his
banging in the fortissimo passages of
these exquisite numbers, but all ac-
knowledge his incomparable superior-
ity in the lyric pasages as to the purity
of tone and the masterful reading of
the delicate rubato and pianissimo pas-
sages. His "reckless mishandling of
the instrument" may perhaps be for-
given in view of his unquestionable
perfection in the "quiet passages."
Paderewski appears in Ann Arbor
for the fourth of the Choral Union pre-
festival concerts on January 20, 1916.

Companies have Spent Nuch Tnie and
Money Trying to Find Answer
to Question
GIVEN: A certain amount of gaso-
line in the tank of an automobile.
DATA: All the different ways in
wiich the energy represented by the
gasoline may be used up, as, for in-
stance, the energy that goes to turning
the wheels, the heat energy that is
lost in the exhaust and water-cooling
process, and the energy that -is used
up in overcoming friction.
REQUIRED: The exact amounts of
energy that go to each of the forego-
ing uses and losses.
ANSWER: Is being worked out at
present in the automobile laboiatory
of the University of Michigan.
Prof. W. T. Fishleigh, of the engi-
neering college, assisted hy four stu-
dents who are enrolled in M. E. 33,
are working on the experiment that
is hoped to give the answer to the
above question. The students are: W.
J. Case, '16E; J. G. Milliken, '16E; W
C. Thompson, '16E, and P. L. Ulrich,
'16 E.
Though stated like and seemingly
as simple as a problem in geometry,
the question is one that has never been
answered, although numerous automo-
bile companies have expended time
and money on it. The answer may
only be obtained through experimental
results, and because of the complica-
tions and difficulties in the set-up of
the experiment, no one has attempted
its complete answer.

Washington, Nov. 5.-The Depart-
ment of Justice has filed a brief in the
Supreme court against Cramp & Sons,
shipbuilders, of Philadelphia. The
Cramp concern is trying to recover
$483,757 from the United States gov-
ernment, which amount they say is
still due them for the manufacture of
the battleship Massachusetts.
Large Totals for Corporate Financing
New York, Nov. 5. - Corporate
financing in this country for the
month of October amounted to $210,-
000,000. This is the largest amount
for any month this year with the ex-
ception of February. The large sun,
is due in part to the establishment ofx
several new corporations.
London Has Anti-Treating Order
London, Nov. 5.-The anti-treating
order went into effect in London on
the 11th of last month. "Don'ts,"
which are really commands, have been
plentifully posted about the city. Here
they are:
Don't order any intoxicating drinks
for another.
Don't pay for drinks for a friend.
Don't lend or advance money to buy,
Don't consume any drink which
somebody else has ordered or paid for.
These "don'ts" apply to licensed
premises and clubs, highways, open
spaces, railway stations adjoining or
near to licensed places in which the
liquor was sold or supplied,
However, the sale of 'whisky, brandy
and rum, reduced to between 25 and
35 degrees under proof, and of gin re-
duced to between 35 and 45 degrees,
is permitted, The advisability of clos-

The work in the auto loboracory is

of a car is considered by an automo-

conditions, the moors that are mo be

Franklin six, a Reo four and a F urd,
are encased in a hood and ap'on that
are furnished with the motor.j

Large Ng Telescope t o Go South
To help in this work, the large new
telescope, now being made for the
university observatory will be thken
to the southern hemoisphere as soon as
it is completed. The two lenses, each
of which is 24 iches in diameter,
were ordered from a French firm. four
years ago. After two years, a dupli-
cate order was placed with a German
concer<, but the lenses have not yet
been brought to this country. They
are to be ground by A. Clark & Sonis,
Cabridge, Mass.
Attached to the large telescopc will
be a sialier one, known as a guiding
telescope, for use in locating heavenly
bodis before attempting to focup the
mean blnsi umnent.
A wind blast of a certain velocity
is forced into the hood by a fan blower.I
In order to determine the velocity re-r
quired it was necessary to obtain the
velocihv of the wind rushing through
the hood of a car on the road when it
was propelled at variors speeds. Prof.
J. P. Allen's car, a I-hud son, was bor-
rowed and run at different rates while
a velocity meter, attached to the en-
gine, recorded the velocity of the wind.
