Nogales, Nov. 26.-Mexican soldiers
to the number of at least 20 were
killed in Nogales, Sonora, today by fire
of American troopers. Two American
troopers were killed and eight injured.
Whether the dead are Villa or Car-
ranza men is not known but they are
believed to have been Carranza men.
Following the evacution of Nogales,
Sonora, this morning early, by the
Villa forces, some stragglers from the
Villa army remained in the town loot-
ing and shooting their rifles at inter-
vals. About noon shots began to fall
on the American side of the line and
one American trooper was wounded.
The American soldiers, on orders
from their commander, Col. W. H. Sade,
Twelfth Infantry, returned the fire,
and six Mexicans were shot to death.
Then followed a rapid exchange of
shots from both sides of the line.
Colonel Cargenas, commander 'of
the advance guard of the Carraza
forces, had a conference on the inter-
national border with Colonel Sade and
assured him that the Carranzistas con-

OPERA MUSIC COMPOSERS
WiLL MEET THIS MORNING
General Chairman Weaver and Earl V.
Moore to Explain What
Everyone who aspires to be the
writer of music for this year's Union
opera will be at the Union at 10:00
o'clock this morning when the lyrics
and scenarios which have been writ-
ten will be given out to prospective
music scribes. The writers of the lyr-
ics will be on hand to give suggestions
as to the writing of the music.
It is rumored that many talented
music writers will show up this year
and will make the opera as successful
in this direction as it was last year
and two years ago.
Earl V. Moore, of the school of mu-
sic, who did so much to make the Un-
ion operas such big successes, will be
at the Union to explain just what is
wanted and will give the new men the
benefit of his experience. Theron D.
Weaver, '16E, general chairman of the
opera, will also be there to give the
men a start.
No director has been secured for this
year's opera as yet but Weaver is mak-
ingstrenuousefforts to secure one who
will put on a good show. A great deal
depends upon the director and a good
one is sure to make a success of the
undertaking even with poor material.
With the material expected this year
and an extra good director, it is hoped
this year's opera will stand among the
best ever turned out at Michigan.

"Little Billy the Kisser's" amorous
career came to a disastrous halt
Thursday night, when a policeman
caught him dodging among the shad-

"Little Billy," who is William Tem-
ple, aged 14, has been conducting a
strenuous kissing and hugging cam-
paign during the last two weeks against
the young women and girls passing in
the vicinity of State, Thayer and In-
galls streets, north of the campus.
His plan of attack has been to charge
from a strategic position behind a
tree and smother his victim with car-
esses before she was aware of the at-
tack. Seven young women and girls,
one of them a university student, had
complained to the police that he had
thus forced his attentions upon them
before he was captured.
Kissing is like military training;
under the proper ceiditions it is a
good thing, but a lot of people object
to it when it's compulsory, and that
is why "Little Billy" will probably
be committed to the Boy's Reforma-
tory at Lansing by Probate Judge
Murray, in accordance with the appli-
cation which Chief of Police Pardon
will submit when the boy's case
TAKE STRAW VOTE
ON MILITARY PLAN
Purpose of Ballot to Ascertain What
Position Student Body Takes
URGE WOMEN TO PARTICIPATE
"Let the regents know the sentiment
of the campus on the proposed pli
of compulsory military training" is
the slogan of those in charge of the
straw ballot that is to be taken on thi
proposition Tuesday noon between the
hours of 12:30 and 2:30.
The committee, which is headed by
Francis E. Mack, '16E, realizes that
the interest shown in the ballot will
determine its effect upon the regents.
As the number of votes cast will be an
index to the interest, it is imperative
that every student should vote either
for or against the proposed plan.
The women of the university will
not only be permitted but urged to
vote. The ballot box in the library,
though open to everyone, will be es-
pecially for them. The other boxes
will be in the Engineering building,
University hall, and the Medicine and
Since the action of the university
senate on November 8, the question
of compulsory military training has
occasioned a lively debate on the
campus. The first meeting of the
Michigan Union Forum was devoted
to a discussion of the proposition, and
The Daily has printed numerous con-
tributions on both sides of the ques-
tion. It was to ascertain exactly the
consensus of opinion that The Daily
decided to hold a straw ballot.
Mack will finish arranging the de-
tails of the ballot today, and will an-
nounce the names of the tellers to-

PEACE SHIP SAILS DEC. 8

opments in the movement "to get the
boys out of the trenches by Christ-
mas," in which Henry Ford and the
Women's Peace party are collaborat-
For one thing it was intimated defi-
nitely that President Wilson does not
believe the time opportune for the
American government to make a new
peace move. Mr. Ford announced that
he has in his possession assurances
from officials of a majority of the im-
portant powers on each side of the
European war that they have no ob-
jection to the assembling of a peace
conference: He declined to give out
tie names of these officials.
Mr. Ford also announced that he
will spend as many millions as are
needed in carrying on a propaganda
against war preparedness in this coun-
try and a bureau will be opened for
this purpose in Washington under the
direction of Oswald Garrison Villard,
of the New York Evening Post.
The peace ship which was scheduled
to sail December 4 will not sail until
December 8.' It is regarded by Mr.
Ford as altogether probable that ex-

Installation of Student Branch of
Society to be Considered
IETROIT MEN ARE INTERESTED
The formation at Michigan of a
general student branch of the Society
of Automobile Engineers will be con-
sidered at a meeting next Tuesday
at 7:00 o'clock in the engineering
society rooms in the engineering1
building. An increasing demand on
the part of the student body and an)
active interest not only on the part1
of the Detroit branch but of the na-
tional society has resulted in this step
being taken toward the formation of
the branch. Providing that active in-1
terest and support is shown at the
meeting, plans will be made for ap-
plication to the society for the forma-
tion of the branch.
The branch, if it is formed, is plan-1
ned to be open to the campus in gen-
eral and the meetings and discussions1
will be of such a nature as will ad-
mit of this membership. Any studentI
on the campus or member of the fac-
ulty will be eligible. .
Such men as Secretary Conant of]
the Detroit branch, Mr. K. W. Zim-
merschied, chairman standards com-
mittee of the S. A. E.., and Mr. Rus-
sell Huff, chief engineer of the Dodge
Co., and president of the S. A. E.,
have all expressed themselves as ac-)
tively interested in the formation of
a student branch at Ann Arbor. )
The general society has a student)
branch at Cornell and it is reported
that it is one of the strongest societies
on the campus. Both Purdue and
Worcester Polytechnic are consider-
ing the formation of a like branch.

months of war-without imposing new
burdens of taxation and without ex-
tension of credit.
