CROWD DEMANDS YOST SPEECH
Send-Off Rivals One to Harvard;
Bogle and Hulbert Orate On,
Top of Box Car
With a come-back spirit rivalling in
its intensity the famous send-off to
Harvard last year, the students sent
the 1915 Varsity squad to Philadel-
:hia last e':er'ng with cheers'of praise
pinging in :heir ears. Approximately
2,10 students Eathered in front of
U ivcrsity hall at 7:00 o'clock, from
where they snake-danced to the Ann
Arbor station.

At the station they were greeted
vrith a semi-mass meeting, at which
Hal ilulbert, '14M, and Tom Bogle,
'12, spoke from the heights of a box
car. Cheer after cheer, many of them
springing spontaneously from the stu-
dents, resounded for a radius of
blocks. They were led by Hal Smith,
'16, and Bob Bennett, '18, until the
train pulled in, when the individual
cheering blended into a continuous
shout.
Players were cheered individually
and the team collectively, until there
came an insistant call for Yost. Fin-
ally in answer, he appeared from the
car and spoke on the steps to the vast
crowd. He did not exactly prophesy
victory for the Maize and Blue team
which will meet Pennsy on Saturday,
but he did say that if ever a team
should give everything it had in a
game, Captain Cochran's squad would.
Never had he experienced or even an-
ticipated as possible, the wonderful
display of enthusiasm and loyal feel-
ing towards a team as had the stu-
dents shown this fall.
After the train had departed, there.
was a general exodus from the sta-
tion in the direction of the Majestic,
where the .management offered a free
show to the students, a custom which
has been in practice for several years.'
Only the actual Varsity squad left1
last evening, the-reserves leaving Fri-
day afternoon.

FRENCH HALT TEUTONIC
ASSAULT IN CHAMGE
Withering Fire Repulses Attack and
1)rives Germans from Their
Foothold
Paris, Nov. 10.-German forces hold-
ing Tahure in the Champagne district
attempted to drive the French forces
holding the heights in that vicinity
from their positions in a series of at-
tacks today.
Two assaults were made, the first
of which broke down in the face of
the withering fire from the French
trenches. The second was more suc-
cessful and the Germans gained a foot-
hold. They were immediately driven
out by a counter attack.
The rushes from the Teuton trenches
were preceded by a bombardment of
the French positions with heavy artil-
lery. This was replied to effectively,
says the official statement.
, Fighting with hand grenades con-
tinues without let up in the region to
the west of Argonne.
China Not to Change Form This Year
Peking, Nov. 10.-The Chinese re-
public today authorized the statement
that no change would be made this
year in the form of government of the
country.
Election returns make it certain
that the proposal to re-establish a
monarchical form of government has
been adopted. These returns show
that eighteen of the twenty-two prov-
inces already have given solid support
to the project.
The election will be completed, but
restoration of the monarchy will be
delayed.

delphia has little chance of landing
the 1916 Republican national conven-
tion, according to Harry Baker, sec-
rewtary of the Republican State com-
mittee, here for a brief conference
with state leaders. Chicago is virtu-

ally the unanimous choice of the party
leaders, Mr. Baker said, with St. Louis
making a perfunctory campaign to
land the convention.
BrItish Sink German Submarine Boats
Madrid, Nov. 10.-British cruisers
sank two German submarines off Gi-
braltar today, according to reports re-
ceived here. This fact is taken as
significant in view of the fact that it
is claimed that it was a German, not
an Austrian, submarine which sank
the Ancona off Bizerta, Tunis, late
Tuesday.

of the French industrial and commer-c
cial commission landed here Tuesday

eral at New Orleans, now secretary ofa

Wyvern Society Holds Fall Initiation
The parlors of Barbour gymnasium
were the scene of the fall initiation
of Wyvern society of junior women. A
banquet at the Homestead followed.
The speakers were historians. Mar-
garet Reynolds, as third historian, in-P
troduced in turn Dean Myra B. Jordan
as speaker on ancient history; Grace1
Fletcher, '16 mediaeval historian;
Helen Champion, '17, modern his-
torian, and Della Laubengayer, '17,
who gave a glimpse into future history.

Michigan's student body is behind
the Michigan team. If anyone doubts
this fact let him look over the ex-
amples of support which the students
have afforded the eleven during the
fast closing season. Last night the
climax was capped when, in half an
hour, enough money was collected to
send two cheer-leaders to Pennsy to
help the team beat the wearers of the
Red and Blue.
With the Majestic theater packed to
enough money was found in the treas-
off of the team last night, Francis
Mack, '16E, addressed the audience in
an appeal to send one cheer leader to
Philadelphia, and after his talk from
the stage the circulation of the boxes
was begun.
When the proceeds were counted
enough money wos found in the treas-
ury of the special committee of the
council to send two cheer-leaders to
the Quaker city. The amount totalled
$70.50. From this sum $2.50 was turn-
ed over to the Majestic theater man-
agement to pay for a window broken
in the rush previous to the free show.
The remainder will be used to help
"Hal" Smith and "Bob" Bennett on'
their way to lead the 2,000 Michigan
rooters in their support of the Maize,
and Blue.

Washington, Nov. 10.-Twenty-seven
Americans are believed killed In the
torpedoing of the Italian liner Ancona
by an Austrian submarine in the Med-
iterranean sea, according to a dispatch
received late tonight at the state de-
partment from Ambassador Page at
Rome.
A serious question with the Austro-
Hungarian government, identical with
that which brought the United States
and Germany to the verge of a break
following the Lusitania and Arabic dis-
asters, is believedpending, unlesstis
demonstrated that conditions Justified
the Ancona attack.
Should it be shown that the Ancona
was torpedoed without warning, that
no signal was given to stop, and that
no effort was made to escape, prompt
and vigorous action will be taken by
the United States, according to rumors.
Thus far the state department has re-
ceivednobadvices beyond the dispatch
from Ambassador Page.
The press report that the Ancoa
attemptedto escape and was shelled
for a long time before being torpedoed
and sunk is not confirmed at the state
department. Complete reports on the
incident are expected here tomorrow.
ROME ACCOUNTS FOR 142
New York, Nov. 10.-Rome advices
received here quote the Royal Emigra-
tion company of that city as announc-
ing that only 142 passengers on the
liner Ancona have been accounted for,
up to date. The only American cabin
passenger, known to have been aboard
was Mrs. Seigel Grey.
Boats containing the survivors have
landed at Sardinia and points on the
African coast.
One report received here estimates-
those who escaped from the wreck at
270. This would place the total death
list at 312. Another theory, however,
estimates that the 270 rescued in-
cluded only those passengers and
members of the crew who were land-
ed at Bizerta, 54 others having landed
at Cape Bon, and 142 at Berrieville.
This reduces the list of victims to
110.
The Italian censor is watching all
news dispatches regarding the disaster
carefully and is letting very little in-
formation get outs The correspond-
ents had great difficulty in sending
telegraphic dispatches through.
The vessel carried 582 persons on
its passenger list.
