"DAILY" TO OVERSEE WORK
Will Ty to Reach All Organizations
on Campus; Gifts of All Kinds
Are Acceptable
Organizations and individuals all
over the entire campus have taken up
the Good Fellow movement which has
been inaugurated under the auspices
of The Michigan Daily, and it prom-
ises to ie one of the most far-reaching
enterprises ever undertaken * by the
student body.
At the smoker of the senior lit class
held last night at the Union, the move-
ment was introduced by one of the
speakers and an immediate response
in the form of a very substantial sum
of money was the result. Plans are
also under way to bring the matter up
before all of the organized bodies on
the campus in addition to the assist-
ance that individuals on the campus
will render in making the "Merry
Christmas" movement a reality.
A Good Fellow Editor of The Daily
has been appointed and any commu-
nications regarding the movement are
to be sent to him at The Daily office.
Checks or subscriptions to the fund
will be sent to him there. Any men
or women on the campus who have
books, clothing or any other useful
articles which they are willing to give
to the Good Fellows are asked to send
word to the Good Fellow Editor and
he will' immediately assign one of his
asistants to their collection.
Any organized bodies on the campus
who are planning to give any sort of
Christmas celebration to any of the
poor of the city are also asked to im-
mediately communicate with the Good
Fellow Editor so that duplication of
assistance may be avoided.
The committee which has in charge
the distribution is now making a can-
vass of the entire city together with
all the organized charity associations
in the city and by this means it is
certain that when Christmas morning
dawns not a "single stocking" will b
left empty.
Some idea of the spirit which is be-
ing displayed in the furtherance of the
plan may be gained from the actior
taken at a meeting of one of the
campus honorary societies held yes-
terday. The organization voted to take
all the Christmas decorations and fa-
vors of its Christmas dance and give
them to the Good Fellows to help glad-
den the Christmas of some more un-
fortunate individuals. From unofficial
reports indications point to a simila
action on the part of several othe
campus societies.
To any men or women on the camp-
us who wish to play Good Fellow tc

Mandolin Club Trio Which Will Appear in Concert Tomorrow Night

MANON CLUB TOGIVE
MIXED CONCERT PRGA

Students Will -.Hear Both+
and Popular Numbers
Entertainment

Classical
at'

Featuring the "Bridal Rose," an
overture *usually considered too diffi-
cult for the amateur organization, the
Mandolin club will present a varied
program of popular and classical mu-
sic at its appearance in the Novelty
concert to be held tomorrow night in
Hill auditorium.
During the past few weeks the club
has been far from idle. Constant prac-
tices have given its work a finish that
is usually not obtained until late in
the season. Harold Forsythe, '17,
leader of the club, has been assisted
in the direction of the bigger numbers
by Prof. Earl V. Moore, of the School
of Music.
Recent additions to the club should
add much to the quality of the music
presented. For the first time a sec-
tion of third mandolins will be used
in addition to customary first and sec-
ond mandolins. A double bass voil
has been secured and gives the club
a better foundation. In the popular
numbers a saxophone will also be
used.
PROF. J. R. ALLEN SPEAKS AT
FRESH ENGINEER ASSEMBLY
Prof. John R..Allen, head of the me-
chanical engineering department, gave
an interesting speech yesterday at the
freshman engineering assembly on the
subject, "The Engineer Out of His
Own Country," in which he related
some of his own experiences abroad.
The class will hold its second social
event, a dance, on the evening of Jan-
uary 7. One dollar will be charged,
for admission. President Wood an-
nounced the appointment of the fol-
lowing committee, which is to study
and report on the new class constitu-
tion: M. G. Sheldon, chairman, H. P.
Monroe, George Hodges, Cecil Ruby
and Floyd Sanders.
Sophomore Engineers Hold Meeting
The sophomore engineering class
held a special meeting yesterday at
which H. A. Knowlson, the treasurer,
explained the importance of paying

K9iSER MUST DECIDE ON
UNITED STATES'REQUESTS
As Attaches Are Appointed by Him He
Alone Has Power to Order
Their Recall
Washington, Dec. 8.-Emperor Will-
iam of Germany will have to pass
personally on the requests of the
United States for the recall of Cap-
tains Boy-Ed and von Papen, attaches
of the German embassy here. This
I was mentioned tonight on definite au-
thority from embassy sources.
It was stated that inasmuch as mili-
tary and naval attaches of the German
diplomatic service are personal ap-
pointees of the Kaiser, upon him alone
rests the official decision when the
demand is made for the recall. The
Kaiser's answer is not expected by
the embassy officials to reach Wash-
ington before the early part of next
week.
Owing to the delay in getting the
matter before him the chances are
he will consult not only the German
chancellor but also the heads o: the
military and naval establishments. It
is expected that at least four days
will pass before his decision is com-
municated to Washington.
In the meantime, a difference in in-
terpretation exists between the state
department and the embassy concern-
ing the personal note sent to the am-
bassador by Secretary of State Lan-
sing and his reply to the ambassador's
demand for the reasons prompting the
request for the recall.
At the state department it is insist-
ed that the reasons have not and will
not be given. In embassy circles it
is insisted with equal emphasis that
Mr. Lansing has given to Ambassador
von Bernstoff the matter desired.
Toastmasters Initiate Five at Banquet
Toastmasters held a banquet and

HOOSIERS TO RAVE SMOKER
Prof. S. F. (aingerich, of the English
Department, Will Be the
Principal Speale"
An excellent program has neen ar-
ranged for the Indiana Club smoker
to be given at the Union at 8:00
o'clock tonight. Prof. S. F. Gingerich
of the English department, will be
the principal speaker of the evening.
Other talks will be given by Louis
Dunton, '16L, president of the club;
R. F. Gates, '17L, last year's presi-
dent, and E. D. Crumpacker, 18L, var-
sity hurdler. L. A. Lundquist, '19,
promises to give some novel musical
numbers.
Cider, sinkers, smokes and other
typical Indiana products will be dealt
out abundantly and all Indiana men
are wercome to attend and meet the
,men from their native state.

Memb'rs of the Oratorical Board
ycsterday afternoon passed a resolu-
tion to the effect that a committee be
appcin od to draft a letter to Norman
Angoll, expressing regret for the at-
titude oC the questioners at the lec-
ture last Friday evening.
This action followed the rescinding
of a motion passed by the board on
Monday to the effect that a set of
resolutions be adopted, expressive of
the board's disapproval of the criti-
cism which followed last Friday's
lecture, both in the report of the
speech as handled by a Daily re-
porter, and that which followed later
in the form of communications to The
Daily.
The Daily will probably not be in
a position to publish the letter which
will be written to Mr. Angell by Mr.
Immel and Mr. Eich of the oratory
department. and H. B. Teegarden, '17,
as the proposal that this be in the
form of an open letter and made pub-
lic through the columns of The Daily,
was voted down.
The members of the board stood
evenly divided on the question as to
whether or not any letter should be,
written to the eminent lecturer in re-
gard to the complication which arose
during and after his talk, and the
{uestion was decided by the vote
from the chair.
As 'yesterday's r eeting was called
as a special session to handle the
Norman Angell matter, little other
business was transacted by the board.
It was, however, definitely decided to
have Edwin Markham, the well known
poet-lecturer, in Ann Arbor next Tues-
day night, to talk in University hall.
DAVIS MEN TO HOLD DANCE
Special Numbers and Stunts to Mark
Feature Party at Union
Final arrangements and plans have
been completed and all is in readiness
for the Camp Davis dance at the Union
tomorrow night. Features, special
numbers and stunts, with which the
whole dance is replete, are all pre-
pared, even to trying out the real
camp-fire and the preparation of the
special amusements for those who do
not intend to dance.
"Roll Call Dance" and "The Grand
Traverse" are two of the many fea-
ture dances which the committee has
planned. The men are to be attired
in camp clothes and the girls will
.come in their "middies." It is an-
nounced that anyone who comes dress-
ed in his good clothes will be thrown
into the lake (provided for the pur-
pose) as were the fellows at camp
when they showed up in anything but
their oldest clothes.
The foresters who were at camp
as well as those of the senior civil
engineers who did not attend the
camp, are invited. Invitations have
been extended to the entire civil engi-
neering faculty and it is expected that
they will all come. Civil engineers
who have attended the camp in former
years have also been invited.
Tickets for the affair, of which there
are a few left, may be obtained from
E. D. Bolton, W. L. Stanton or R. A.
Hall.
