MICHIGAN HAS JOINED THE RANKS OF THE GOOD
FELLOWS.
THE FIRST MOBILIZATION STARTS TODAY. FROM
NOW ON, THE MOVEMENT FOR A MERRY CHRISTMAS
WILL BE SPREAD AMONG EVERY STUDENT AND FAC-
ULTY MEMBER CONNECTED WITH THE UNIVERSITY.
THE DAILY HAS APPOINTED A GOOD FELLOW EDI-
TOR. THROUGH HIM CHRISTMAS CHEER WILL BE
SPREAD THROUGH ALL ANN ARBOR. THE HELP OF EV-
ERY MICHIGAN MAN AND WOMAN IS TO BE ENLISTED
TO MAKE THE MOVEMENT A REALITY.
IN PRACTICALLY ALL OF THE LARGE CITIES OF THE
COUNTRY, TUE GOOD FELLOW MOVEMENT HAS ASSUMED
CONSIDERABLE PROPORTIONS. THE MICHIGAN UNDER-
GRADUATE ARRIVES HOME TOO LATE TO BE A GOOD
FELLOW IN HIS OWN LOCALITY.'
ANN ARBOR HAS NEVER HAD ANY SUCH MOVEMENT
ON A LARGE SCALE. THEREFORE, EVERY BIG-HEARTED
MAN AND WOMAN ON THE MICHIGAN CAMPUS IS TO JOIN
IN THE MOBILIZATION BY CONTRIBUTIONS OF MONEY
OR ANYTHING USEFUL, TO MAKE SURE THAT IN THE J
GREAT HOLIDAY SEASON NO ONE WILL BE LEFT UN-
CARED FOR.

Washington, Dec. 7.-News of the
sinking of the United States oil tanker
-," Donipaw off the coast of Tripoli was
received today soon after a report tc
the naval department that the U. S.
steamship Petrolite had been attacked
by an Austrian submarine in the Med-
iterranegn. These reports, following
the sinking of the Ancona, suggest a
rapidly developing state which is
1 likely to require vigorous action to-
ward Austria.
Rome, Dec. 7.-The American oil
steamer Donipaw has been sunk by a
submarine in the Mediterranean near
Potuik, Tripoli. No information has
been received concerning the crew or
the nationality of the submarine, but
it ia thought to be an Austrian ship.
Yser Floods Harass Germans
Paris, Dec. 7.-The Germans in the
region of the Yser have abandoned a
great many of their intrenchments be-
cause of extensive* inundation and the
menace of floods, according to official
Belgian communications given out to-
night.
Greeks Meet Allies at Saloniki
London, Dec. 7.-A commission of
several of the Greek military leaders
left Athens today for Saloniki where
they will discuss personally with rep-
resentatives of the quadruple alliance,
on the future policy of Greece in re-
lation to the war. Demobilization of
the Greek army may be a result of
the conference, although a majority
of Greeks oppose such a move.

INOMEN JOIN CAMPAIGN
1TO BOOSTCLUB CONCERT
Ticket-Selling Given Impetus When
When Women Join Sales
Forces
With the announcement of the wo-
man's campaign committee for the
sale of tickets to the Novelty concert
given by the musical clubs in Hill
auditorium Friday evening, a new
impetus was given to the sales cam-
paign. Already the men are organ-
ized, and now that the women have
joined the sales force, a record house
at the concert seems certain.
Thursday has been set apart as the
day on which the new recruits will
show their worth. They will have
charge of the ticket sale on the
campus, and also at tables in the li-
brary and University hall.
The Woman's League has appointed
Margaret Yocum, '17, general chair-
man of the sale, with Hazel Giddings,
'17, Clara Grover, '17, Donna Sullivan,
'16, and Ruth Butler, '17, as the sub-
chairmen. The remainder of the com-
mittee is as follows: Helen Nipps,
'18, Margaretta Douglas, '17, Margaret
Birdsell, '18, Roberta Woodworth, '17,
Geneva Hays, '18, Winifred Davy, '18,

NEW LEAGUE ELECTS OFFICERS
Selma Lindall, '16, and Edith Harvey,
'18, Chosen Treasurer and
Secretary
The first meeting of the Woman's
Suffrage League of the University of
Michigan was held yesterday after-
noon in Sarah Caswell Angell hall.
Selma Lindell, '16, was elected treas-
urer, and Edith Harvey, '18, secretary.
It was found that before the club
could be formally organized permis-
sion must be obtained from the com-
mittee on student affairs. Steps will
be taken at once to secure this per-
mission.

Form Temporary Automobile Society
Pending Formal Action of
General S. A. E.
A student branch of the Society of
Automobile Engineers was formed last
night when the 45 men who were pres-
ent at a meeting held for the purpose
in the engineering building, voted
unanimously in favor of the action.
Although in reality a student branch
of the S. A. E., the society decided to
organize under the temporary title of
"Automobile Society." This was deem-
ed necessary because of the fact that
certain formalities must be gone
through before the branch is admitted
to the general society. As soon as this
is done the society, as formed, will
simply vote to become a permanent in-
stitution and will then adopt the name
of "Ann Arbor Branch of the S. A. E."
The action which was taken at last
night's meeting is the result of a de-
mand on the part of the student body
which has been increasing for several
years. The hearty cooperation and in-
terest shown by the Detroit branch
has had the effect of bringing the
whole matter to a head and has been
the biggest direct cause of the forma-
tion of the "Automobie Society."
Officers were elected and committees
will be apointed within a few days.
The officers were elected with the un-
derstanding that they would be auto-
matically transferred to like positions
in the formal S. A. E. branch when it
is formed. Officers are: J. G. Milliken,
'16E, president; Gordon D. Cooke,
'16E, vice-president; R. S. Archer,
'16E, secretary; N. L. Dolph, '16E,
treasurer. A committee to draw up
a tentative constitution will be ap-
pointed today or tomorrow.
Under the consideration of "new
business," it was decided to hold the
first meeting at 7:30 o'clock next
Tuesday evening in the engineering
society rooms. The meeting will be
of a semi-closed nature and will be'
mainly for the purpose of allowing
the men to become acquainted and to,
take in new members who come with
the express intention of joining.- A
discussion of "The Cylinder versusj
the Four or the Eight," has been set
for the evening, with three men to
