Hist! Not to say s-shhhh! No
longer will ruthless students be al-
lowed to steal leaves from the library
vines; no longer will the freshmen
dare loiter on the diagonal walk after
10 o'clock with his maiden love and
watch the moon rise. The arm of Ann
Arbor law has decided that the leaves
need watching, and that the arm of
Majesty would be a closer fit around
the waistline of the fusserine.
In the near future the campus is to
be invaded by a small army of law-
keeping bluecoats who will parade the
walks by day, and lurk unseen in the
dark spots of the grounds that the
rays from the flagpole lights fail to
reach. Appointed recently by James
S. Marks, superintendent of building
and grounds, and clad in bright new
uniforms specially furnished by the
university, these 12 huskies will at-
tend all functions held in university
buildings.
They have already been measured
for the uniforms, but will not appear
for inspection until the suits are .fin-
ished. It is uncertain whether the
officers of the law are for utility or
merely to add to the attractive ap-

Good Fellow Editor, The Michigan
Daily-
On behalf of I am
glad to inform you that we will take
any family which you may name, and
fit them out complete, as our con,-
tribution to the Michigan Good Fellow
movement. We feel that this is one of
the most worth-while enterprises ever
undertaken at Michigan, and anything
we may be able to do in helping the
cause along, you may be sure we will
gladly do.
Sincerely yours,
Good Fellow Editor, The Daily:-
At our meeting last night we voted
to take six boys and fit them oit com-
plete with the best Christmas they
ever had. It was also voted to in-
crease this number in case you find
that you have more than you can take
care of. You can count us in on the
movement up to the limit of our re-
sources.
Yours for the Good Fellows,

HOBSON AND WINDELL MAY
DEBATE POHIBITION HERE
Intercollegiate Prohibition League to
Obtain Mten For State
Conference
Richmond P. Hobson, of Washing-
ton, D. C., and V. A. Windell, editor
of "The Iconoclast," may appear in
Ann Arbor in a decalogue debate on
the prohibition question during the
conference of the State League of the
Intercol egiate Prohibition association.
Negotiations have already been
started by the league to obtain these
speakers, who are among the leaders
of the opposing sides. In case Mr.
Hobson does not come, it is likely that
Dr. Samuel Dickie, president of Albion
college, will support the side in favor
of prohibition.
It is expected that nearly 500 stu-

With the harmonic blend of men's
voices, the throb of the mandolins, the
swing of Hawaiian melodies, and the
ragtime of the Serenaders, the musical
clubs will stage their first concert of
the season at 8:00 o'clock tonight in
Hill auditorium.
The Novelty concert fully deserves
its name. New music is to be used
throughout the program.: Much of it
has previously been presented only by
professional clubs. Also for the first
time, a section of third ma1dolins has
been added to the mandolin clubs. Of
more interest is the fact that the wo-
fnen of the university enlisted as tick-
et sellers have helped materially in
boosting the attendance.
From the opening number by the
Glee club to the singing of "The Yel-
low and Blue," the program contains
an excellent array of features. The
Mandolin and Glee clubs will be sup-
plemented by the Midnight Sons and
Varsity quartets, the trio and sextet,
and the Hawaiian musicians.
Final practice was held last night
when a joint rehearsal of the Glee and
Mandolin clubs was held in Hill audi-
torium. Every number was given in
a fine manner that promises much for
the concert tonight.
A record-breaking attendance is ex-
pected. The ticket selling organization
has covered the campus thoroughly.
The 100 men have been working since
Monday night and have brought in
very encouraging returns. The sale
conducted by the women yesterday
added much to the probable attend-
ance.
A section has been reserved for fac-
ulty members and down-town people,
in order to prevent students from tak-
ing all the pick of the seats early. The
doors will open at 7:30 o'clock.
CARTOON PRIZE AWARDED
A. 1). Honey is Winner; Cigarette Law
to Be Enforced Strictly
At a meeting of the board of di-
rectors of the Michigan Union Wed-
nesday night, Alan Honey, '17, was
awarded the first prize of $3.00 for
handing in the best cartoon at the M.
A. C. mass meeting. Harold J. Lance,
'19, received the second and third
prizes of $2.00 and $1.00 respectively.
The law prohibiting the sale of cig-
arettes to minors will be strictly ad-
.ered to at the Union desk, it was de-
cided, and the rule against smoking
in the clubhouse will be enforced.
Members are requested not to try to
evade the cigarette law and to refrain
from smoking in the building.
Dance tickets are henceforth to be
strictly non-transferable, except at the
Union desk. The membership card
of the purchaser must be presented on
buying a ticket and the buyer's name
will be written on the ticket, so that
the owner may be checked on presen-
tation for admission at the dance.
CAMP DAVIS MEN STAGE DANCE
Senior civil engineers will celebrate
the fourth annual Camp Davis dance
at 9:00 o'clock tonight at the Union.
The affair, which is given each year
by the men who attended the last
camp season, is especially elaborate
this year in the way of feature dances,
special programs and other "stunts."

Norfolk, Va., Dec. 9.-Hopewell, that
magic city on the James River which
sprang up in four months with the
coming of the Dupont de Nemours
Powder company plant, is more than
one-half destroyed by fire. It was re-
ported under control late tonight with
a loss estimated at $2,500,000. Ten
thousand families are homeless and
are being sent to Petersburg and
Richmond by the Dupont company.
One negro caught looting was
hanged to a burning telegraph pole.
Martial law has been declared and
troops have been ordered to the scene
from Norfolk, Petersburg, Richmond,
Newport News, Portsmouth and Suf-
folk.
The Victoria hotel in which 500
people are registered, was burned with
practically all the effects of its guests.
The cashier of the Mechanic's Bank
of Hopewell saved the bank's money
and securities and started to Peters-
burg and was held up by several men
who attempted to rob him. Two of
them were killed according to advices
from Petersburg, by citizens who
formed a vigilance committee pending
the arrival of soldiers.

RUSSIAN VICTORY IN PERSIA
FRENCH CRUISER, DESCARTES,
SEIZES THREE AUSTRIANS
AND A GERMAN
London, Dec. 9.-Two successful re-
tirements by the Franco-British forces
in the Balkans were officially an-
nounced tonight. On December 7 the
troops were withdrawn to a new line,
and on December 8 they retired to
another line still farther back. It is
reported that the retreat has been con-
tinuing today.
Large forces of Bulgar and German
forces have been pounding merciless-
ly at General Sarrail's right and cen-
ter forces. By the combined crush of
superior numbers, the Teuton central
allies are aiming to steam-roller the
Anglo-French expeditionary troops out
of the remaining strip of Serbia, into
Greek territory.
Athens reports say that the allies
of Serbia are outnumbered two to one
by the invaders.
King Constantine and his ministers
will very soon be obliged to decide on
the course of action of the Greek
government, since international bor-
der line and neutrality problems will
be forced within a few days if the
present rate of Bulgar advances con-
tinues.
Reinforcements have recently ar-
rived for the entente allies at Saloniki
but these forces have not yet had time
to relieve the situation at the front.
Greek military representatives, with
full power to act, are now in confer-
ence with similar representatives of
the powers in control at Saloniki.
German Advance Is Stopped
Paris, Dec. 9.-Not only has the
German advance in Champagne which
resulted in the capture of French ad-
vance positions south of Somme-P,
and at the Butte de Souain been
stopped, but also the Germans are be-
ing driven out of the positions occu-
pied, and the French guns are pre-
venting them from re-organizing
agdinst the ground taken.
A German munition depot was ex-
ploded last night south of St. Souplet,
on the road between Roye and Mont-
didier. The French artillery also
fired on a German battery near Bazan-
court. Mine fighting in which a party
of German workers were buried by
the explosion of a French mine cham-
ber is reported at Lesetarges.

IMPERIAL CHANCELLOR S A Y S
FIGHT IS WAR OF FRENCH
AGAINST TEUTONIC NATION
ATTACKS IDEA OF ALLIES
Premier Asquith Thinks Allied Powers
Will WIscuss Proper Peace Issues
of Enemy or Neutrals
Berlin, (via Wireless to Sayville, L.
I., Dec. 9.-The Imperial Chancellor,
Dr. von Bethmann4ollweg, in his
address before the Reichstag today,
spoke as follows: "For the German
nation this war has always remained
what it was at the beginning,-the
war of the French against the German
nation and her future. If our enemies
make peace .proposals compatible with
Germany's dignity and safety, then we
shall always ' be ready to discuss
them."
In regard to the idea of the allies
who are still clinging "with naive
brutality" to the notion of eradicating
so-called "Prussian militarism," he
said that the allies must abandon such
an idea. He indicated that it would
be folly for Germany to propose peace
as long as in the country of our
enemies, the guilt and ignorance of
statesmen are entangled with confu-
sion of public opinion. Germany, con-
scious of her military successes, de-
clines respectively for a further need-
less continuation of the war.
He indicated that Germany would
not consider one of the proposed terms
of peace, "the giving back to France
of Alsace-Lorraine on the nationality
basis," and he taunted England by
asking what would happen if such
tests were applied to the British
forces in Egypt and India. "We
do not fight to subjugate other na-
tions," he said. "We fight for the
progress of life and liberty. This war
can be terminated only by. a peace
which will give the certification that
war will not return; we all agree
about that."
The political parties in the Reichs-
tag approved the Chancellor's address
and Ernest Liebnecht, the radical So-
cialist, who tried to interrupt the
Chancellor, was howled down. The
Chancellor and Dr. Schiedemann, his
Socialist interrogator, were in agree-
ment that Germany now dominated
the military situation.
Russian troops in Persia. A force of
500 cavalry, infantry and insurgent
gendarmie and 1,200 German and
Turkish mercenaries were routed near
Ha-na-des, many of the enemy being
killed or wounded.
French Cruiser Captures Steamship
San uan, Porto Rico, Dec. 9.-The
French chuiser Descartes, seized three
Austrians and one German found
among the crew of the Porto Rican
line steamship Coamo, early this
morning. The cruiser approached the
Coamo when the vessel was a few
miles off short at 2:00 o'clock this
morning and brought her to by firing
a shot across her bows. A boarding
party from the Descartes then went
aboard the Coamo and constituted a
search lasting three hours.

These were but two of the many let- ary. Active preparation for the event
ters received up to last night by the will not begin until after the holiday
(Continued on Page Six) vacation.

"Ed" Shields, '94-'96L, prominent
Michigan lawyer, who spoke at the M.
A. C. mass meeting this fall, will be
the speaker at next Sunday's member-
ship meeting at the Union. His sub-
ject will be, "A Standard of Citizen-
shp." Shields was one of the Michigan
alumni orators that got the crowd at
the never to be forgotten M. A. C.
mass meeting into such a furor of
enthusiasm last month.
Mr. Shields graduated from the law
department at Michigan in 1896. In
1895 he was captain of the Varsity
baseball team, and has always been
an active alumnus of the university,
being one of the founders of the "M"
club. He lives in Lansing, is one of
Michigan's eminent practicing law-
yers, and is prominent in the Demo-
cratic party of Michigan.
The program at the Union Sunday
will be informal. There will be a
special musical numbers which is be-
ing arranged by Abraham Hart, '17,
and which will be announced later in
the week.
FORD WIRES- THE PRESIDENT
Says He Will Inform Him of Develop-
ments; Seasickness Aboard
Ship
Washington, Dec. 9.-Worried lest
reports of what is transpiring aboard
the Oscar II. might annoy President
Wilson, Henry Ford sent a wireless to
the president today, saying he will
send first-hand the developments on
the high sea. In his message Ford
said: "Hope you will not be annoyed
by misleading dispatches from news-
paper correspondents of proceedings
on the steamer. I will keep you in-
formed of developments." It is be-
lieved he has reference to dispatches
that he would send a denunciation of
the president's message to Congress.
Seasickness has attacked several of
the most prominent members on board
the peace ship, but the majority are
in good condition.
Rev. H. Black Declines New Call
New York, Dec. 9.-Rev. Hugh Black
has declined the call of the City Tem-
ple, London, to become its minister.
