SELECTION OF LEADER MADE AT
TIME OF ANNUAL
BUNNE OPPOSING CANDIDATE
New Captain Says He will Do His
°utmost;" Was Letder of
John F. Maulbetsch, known in foot-
ball circles as the "German Bullet"
and by varloas other titles denoting
destruction and annihilation, was
elected captain of the 1916 Michigan
football team, yesterday afternoon.
The selection of captain took place
following the annual picture of the
"M" men. Any "M" man is techni-
cally eligible for this honor, although
it is usually bestowed upon only such
individuals as have Won two letters,
previous to their election. Maulbetsch
and Dunne were the likely candidates
and the honors were' conferred upon
When seen yesterday afternoon fol-
lowing his election, "Johnnie" said:
"I surely appreciate what the boys
have done for me, and I will certainly
do my utmost next year."
As has been suggested before in
numerous quarters, Maulbetsch's "ut-
most" is quite some considerable
quantity. Maulbetsch was the captain
of the All-Fresh .during his first year
In the university, and .the 1917 year-
lings hung up an enviable record,
winning every game on their schedule
by overwhelming scores. "Maulxie"
played fullback and occasionally
while carrying the ball he was tackled
and thrown before he had advanced
much over 20 or 25 yards. This oc-

FAVORS COURSE RESTRICTION
Prof. F. N. Scott Objects to Teaching
of Journalism in High Schools
Prof. Fred N. Scott, head of the
Rhetoric department, stated yester-
day that while he had not yet decided
to offer a resolution at the National
Convention of Teachers of English, to
be held in Chicago, Thursday and
Friday of this week, yet he deemed
such a resolution, restricting the
teaching of journalism in the high
schools, should be made.
It is the belief of Prof. Scott that
newspaper work is as deserving to
be classed as a profession as any of-
fered in the curriculum of the uni-
"No high school," said Prof. Scott,
"would make the assertion that it
was capable of qualifying its students
for the law or medicine, and yet there
are classes given in innumerable
high schools which claim to fit the
student for the profession of journal-
Prof. Scott stated that the courses
themselves did not do the harm, but
that the student was deluded into the
belief that he was fitted to take up
the' work of the newspaperman, no
other training being necessary. The
resolution, if offered, will oppose the
placing of such courses in the high
schools of the country, and will limit
instruction in the various branches
of journalism to the universities.
TRANSPORTED TO AGA PRIETA
El Paso, Nov. 24.-Carranza re-en-
forcements who arrived today from
Eagle Pass, were diverted through
Agua Prieta and will be sent south of
Douglas to garrison the mining re-
gion in Sonora. Carranza officials
said this was done because General
Obregon has enough troops to cope
with the Villa situation and is de-
sirous of restoring peace among the
mining camps s6 that foreign corpor-
ations may resume work. General
Obregon left to take personal charge
of this campaign against Nogales and
the Villa forces at Agromosillo.
Go LoOk'Em Over
Coats, old, new and indifferent, um-
brellas, gloves, in pairs and single,
tennis shoes, one dancing pump, sev-
eral fresh caps, _a couple of sweaters,
a bicycle or two, almost enough books
to start a "Y" book exchange, and a
motley collection of handkerchiefs
and caps. No, this is not a story of
a legacy left by some poor student to
some rich relative, nor is it a tale
of some 'bold burglar who' has been
making a raid on a rooming house.
It is merely the "stock in trade" al-
ready accumulated by the newly-in-
stituted lost and found department, in
the secretary's office in University
Recently the order went out from
Secretary Shirley Smith to all em-
ployee of the university that all ar-
ticles found anywhere on the cam-
pus were to be turned in at this office
where they are stored away await-
ing the inquiry of the loser.
It is expected that students who
find articles of any sort about the
campus will bring them to the office.
The articles will be tagged and if
not called for within 30 days, will be
returned to the finder.

Chicago, Nov. 24.-According to of-
ficials of the Standard Oil company,
gasoline may take its second jump in
price of the month. Some of the rea-
sons given for the raise are the decline
in the supply of crude oil, the large
amount of petroleum products being
used in the war and the more general
use of oil in engines of all kinds,

'SELECT MEN FOR GLEE CLUB
That the. class of 1919 will be rep-
resented with Glee and Mandolin
clubs which will be a credit to the
class and the university, was assured
at the tryouts for the clubs held last
evening. The large number of can-
didates attested to the interest in the
clubs and the abundance of good ma-;
terial points to good clubs.
The candidates for the Mandolin
club were given their tryout in Uni-
versity hall under 0. 0. Leininger,
'16]). The material was promising',
although many of the probable mem-
bers were out of town yesterday for
Thanksgiving. The club needs more
mandolins and guitars, especially the
latter, and another tryout will be held
in room 205 north wing of University
hall at 7:00 o'clock on Wednesday
evening, December 1.
What the Mandolin club tryout lack-
ed in numbers was more than made
up for by the large number of candi-
dates for places on the Glee club.
Sixty voices were tried by U. Stanley
Wilson, '16, leader of the Varsity Glee
club, and from this number, 38 wereI
picked. Following are the men se-

CONFERENCE HELD AT COLUMBUS
The Michigan Union stands well
up in the list, if not at the head, of
Student Unions in the country, both
as regards range of activities carried
on under Union auspices, and in
strength and stability of organization.
This fact was conclusively brought
out at the first annual conference of
the. National Association of Student
Unions, held last December at the
Ohio State University. The pamphlet
containing the proceedings of the
meeting has just been issued.-
The Universities of Michigan, Wis-
consin, Illinois, Ohio State, Indiana
and Purdue were represented, be-I
sides Oberlin College and Case Schooli
of Sience. A constitution was drawn
up, representing the purpose of theI
organization "to promote closer re-I
lationship between existing Student
Unions, and to encourage and assistI
in the organization of Unions in other
colleges and universities."1
Practically all the delegates at the
meeting were interested in the ques-;
tion of raising funds for a new build-
ing. Representatives of Ohio State
said that the legislature of Ohio had
been induced by a student committeei
to make an appropriation of $75,000
for their building.
The general heads under which
Student Unions were discussed were
Organization, Administration, Fin-
ance, and Social Activities. When the
question of organization came up, it
was found that the term "Union" dif-
fered in many places. In somed
schools, it is the sole organization
among the student body for self gov-i
ernment and for promoting generali
social work; in other places, the worki
is divided between a Union and aI
Student Council or a Student Senate;f
some schools have all three.<

This gift is to be used at the discre-
tion of the board for anything neces-
sary to the promulgation of the cam-
paign against the white plague. .
During the meeting, Dr. McKlaien
made a report to the effect that three
counties have been canvassed and a
thorough investigation made in regard
to conditions existing within those
counties. He .estimated that it would
require $900 in each county in order
to prosecute the fight against the dis-
ease with any success.

TO GIVE WOMEN MORE SPACE%
Michiganensian to Give More Attention
to Interests of Women
In pursuance of the policy of the
Michiganensian to give more space
.to the interests of women students
in the university, business manager
Glenn M. Coulter of the Michiganen-
sian has sent out contract blanks to
presidents of all of the various league
Hitherto there has been no' repre-
sentation in the book for women as
members of house organizations ex-
cept through the usual sorority se-
tion. This year the plan is to de-
vote a special section of the boo to
the league houses. It is to be hoped
that there will be a prompt response
to this effort to make the Michigan-
ensian as complete as possible. Al-
ready the two dormitories have re-
served space in the Michiganensian
for this year.
All fraternities who wish space
in the Michiganensian must see that
their contracts and copy are sent be=
fore the first of December in order to
insure them space in the book. All
organization contracts and copy must
be in before the 20th of December.
All house organizations who desire
to change their house crests or house
pictures must notify the managing
editor of the Michiganensian before
the first of next month. The same
ruling applies to fraternities who are
taking space in the book for the first
times this year.
