F ltnsaIey t iQuartet Demonstrates
Abilily to Render Difficult


The Flonzaley Quartet have demon-
strated once for all, that the string
quartet is not a thing of the past.
The elusive harmony of the Haydon
Op. 76, No. 2 received enough ap-
plause from the audience to convince
the most sceptical that the works of
the old masters are appreciated by
the modern audience.
Each number had the bearing, the
carriage and the appearance of the
musician. To the average listener the
first number, the Franck Quartet in
D major, was a little tedious It is
full of technicalities and its mood is
difficult to understand. But tech-
nique saved the day for the Flon-
zaley's, the interpretation of this ex-
ceedingly difficult number and the
Schurzo movement brought due recog-
nition from the audience.
The Hadyen Quartet was the popu-
lar number of the program. The most
remarkable of all musical tragidies is
that of the death of the exquisite
string music of the old \Viennieso mas-
ter. Nothing else that he wrote con-
tains so much music and is so little
known as these numbers. The Flon-
zaley quartet resurrected this musical'
beauty and adorned it with such mas-
tery artistry that it was as of old a
living source of the old masters, a
vital part of the life oftheartist.
American Chemical Society Elects
Officers for Ensuing
In a paper on the "Study of Hydro-
chloric Concentration Cell With Re-
spect to Activity and Concentration,
Boundary Potential and Transport
Numbers" which was read before the
Michigan branch of the American
Chemical society held yesterday after-
noon in the Chemical building, Dr. A.
L. Ferguson explained a large amount
of experimental work which he has
done on the question.
Besides the experimental work, Dr.
Ferguson has modified the well known
formula for the E. M. F. of concentra-
tion cells, so that the results calcu-
lated from this formula are in bet-
ter agreement with those obtained ex-
perimentally and also those obtained
from the old formula.
After his talk officers for the ensuing
year were elected. Those chosen were
the following: Chairman, Prof. D. M.
Lichty; secretary-treasurer,. Prof. H.
H. Willard; councillor, Prof. W. J.
Hale; executive committee, Prof. B.
W. Peet, of the Michigan State Normal
college, Prof. M. Gomberg and Prof.
W. G. Smeaton.

A Lot of Us Can
Use theMoney
Angel in Disguise Sends I)onation to
Webster Society Wiping Out
nt Ancient Debt.
There are a few among us who can
import a girl from the Pacific coast for
, the J-Hop, follow the football team
y on all its trips and live in four-room
1 apartments, but we never before have
s heard of the student who would un-
d ceremoniously and secretly open his
1- bank account to the worthy cause of
y debating.
.e But that's what happened to Webster
o society and those near-barristers are
d still gasping up on the third floor of
the law building, wondering who had
d the nerve to do it.-
0 Sometime after the university wasI
£ founded and long before Fielding Har-i
t ris ever set eyes on Ann Arbor town,
n Webster society entered into a con-
t tract for $700 for furniture for their
e rooms.. Each year since then this sumc
t, has been reduced a wee bit and at thet
opening of college this year, only $30c
n of the old debt stood in the way oft
e burning up the mortgage.
s At the meeting last Friday, a mo-I
- mentous question arose: Should thet
e society apply all the money in theA
- treasury to the old debt and wipe itk
out or should $11 go for the annuals
picture in the Michiganensian. Theo
debate was long and heated and ina
their most serious moments they de-
cided to forego the tradition of having
any mention in the annual this yearr
and instead, wipe out the old debt. ,
But somebody left that meeting withs
the philanthropic feeling of a Carnegieo
or a Rockefeller, for the mail yester-n
day brought to K. M. Stevens, '16L,N
president, an unsigned letter with $11e
in currency enclosed, to pay for a
page in the Michiganensian. And nowD
the systems of Bradstreet's and R. G. i
Dunn are being invoked to reveal his0
Joseph W. Cochran of Piladelpia, to
be at Presbyterianb
- - ^ t
Joseph Wilson Cochran, secretary of t
the Presbyterian board of education,
Philadelphia, will speak at the Presby-_
terian church Sunday evening. t
The speaker was one of the origina-°,
tors of the university student workR
movement in the United States. Hec
was at the University of Michigan ins
1906 and at that time made a favorablet
impression upon the students here. t
Mr. Cochran is a Tappan lecturer ed
and is one of the foremost speakers "
on the platform. He has not yet an- s
nounced his subject for the Sunday ad-
Roy W. Hamilton, graduate student v
pastor of the Presbyterian church, is n
arranging a special musical program, a
which will include some of the best e
talent in the university. t
President's Platform in Convention t
Depends Upon Congress
New York, Nov. 23.-So far as 1
Chairman Wm. F. McCoombs, of the s
Democratic National Committee has C

been able to sound the opinion of his 0
party leaders throughout the coun- p
try, the sentiment of the National ri
Committee in Washington on Decem- e
ber 7, will be "short and sweet." w
Where that convention will be held a
is still a matter for speculation but y
Democratic sentiment is strong for p
an early gathering. None was found '
who suggested any other candidate u
than President Wilson, but the feel-
ing among the leaders, according to
information given to the national(
chairman, is that the platform upon
which Mr. Wilson will go before the
country is going to depend largely for
its appeal on what Congress accom-
plishes at the approaching session.

Students to Meet Instructors In Form-
al Gathering at the
Get together gatherings of faculty
and students at the Union similar to
those held last year will be commenced
next Tuesday night at the clubhouse.
The faculty of the history. fine arts
and English departments will attend
the meeting, which is to be informal.
There will be no special program and
no speeches.
The purpose of "faculty night" is
to afford an opportunity for students
and faculty to get in closer touch with
each other and become more intimate-
ly acquainted.
Last year numerous faculty nights
were held at the Union and those who
attended the meetings, particularly
the members of the faculty, were
strong in their approval of the sys-
Letter Describes Service Rendered by
Volunteer Motor Ambu-
lance Corps.f
An example of the brave work done
by the American Volunteer Motor
Ambulance Corps on the French front t
is given in a letter published in the f
N. Y. Times, from a volunteer serv-
ng on the Motor Ambulance corps,
who describes the work of the men
while removing wounded soldiers fromf
the vicinity of the firing line.r
"When we reached it this first aidr
dressing station proved to be a dug-r
out chamber five feet below ground. P
Here we found our men wounded butb
ifteen minutes before, ready for us.
Both were in pretty bad shape, but c
s we lifted them ready to put in the i
tretcher, a weak and bloody handh
rept out and closed over mine and an
nouth which I could not see whispered b
Les Americaines.'
"Back through the narrow openings
n the barricaded road we movedc
gain. But slowly this time, for even
light man on a stretcher growst
eavy with every foot-step when thet
arry is a long one. Red drops drip- r
ed from the writhing body under the t
anvas strips on the stretcher."
While colleges in the East have been I
ending delegations of men and sums
f money to aid war sufferers, Michi-
an men have taken no interest in the w
vork so far. Several prominent peo- C
le on the campus, despite the fact that c
ip to the present time interest has i
een lacking, have expressed their ap- S
royal of this plan and their inten- T
ions of aiding in the work as far as o
ossible. The hope is expressed by
hese people that with Michigan men i
ehind the plan, aid, either in the I
arm of money or men, will be sent to w
elp war sufferers. o

England Will Have 4,000,000 Troops
in Field by Next March,
Says Kitchener.
London, via Athens, Nov. 23.-Greece
has decided to yield to the demands of
the allies and the Serbian army has
turned upon the Bulgars. Athens
newspapers in a semi-official statement
brought the first news of Greece's de-
cision to grant the allies' demands.
"The government is disposed to give
an unofficial guarantee of the state-
ment and freedom of movement of the
allies' troops," said one publication.
The statement is taken to mean that
Greece's troops will not interfere with
the French and Serbian forces if they
are driven over the border of the Serb-
ian frontier into Greece.
Kitchener Optimistic
London, Nov. 23.-Lord Kitchener
has informed the Greek minister that
by next March England will have '4,-
000,000 troops and will also be able to
arm 'and supply 6,00,000 Russians.
"Therefore," said Kitchener, "the war
can only end in the complete defeat of

London, Nov. 23.-A despatch from
Copenhagen says that the new Ger-
man dreadnaught reported sunk by a
mine in the Baltic Sea was the Mark-
raft, a warship of 25,575 tons. It was
placed in commission after the war
Some believe that the recently in-
creased activities of British submar-
nes in the Baltic and not a mine may
ave been responsible for the Ger-
nan disaster but none of the reports
gave official confirmation.
Italians Concentrate on Gorizia
Rome, Nov. 23.-Italy's troops have

uest of Goriazia and are closing in on
