Lawrence College Is Dropped from
List; Policy of More Home Games
Is Successful.
Rumors concerning Michigan's
strained athletic relations with the
Orange are put to rout upon the ap-
pearance of the Wolverine schedule
for 1916. Syracuse occupies its old
place among the institutions to oppose
the Maize and Blue on the gridiron,
but contrary to the wishes of the ath-
letic authorities of the Eastern school,
the game will be played in Ann Arbor,
instead of at Syracuse.
The only new face to appear in
next-year's football lineup is that of
Washington University of St. Louis,
Mo. The Varsity will have a taste of
Yost tactics in meeting this institution,
as their pigskin-toters are mentored
by big "Bill" Edmunds, star lineman
on the 1909 Michigan eleven. "Bill"'
whipped his proteges into champion-'
ship formh during the past season, and'
succeeded in walloping the University
of Missouri for the state championship.
The game was scheduled chiefly to
afford the Wolverines what will prob-
ably be a much-appreciated breathing'
spell between their clashes with M.
A. C. and Syracuse and with Cornell
and Pennsylvania.'
Lgwrence is missing from the new'
schedule, and Marietta will open the
season the first Wednesday after the1
opening, of college. Cae has been]
given an earlier date than that of last1
season, so as not to break into their
Ohio Conference gaes, and Mt. Union ]
has. been retained as a Saturday con-
There is a slight possibility that a
second mid-week game may yet be
scheduled, to be staged on October
11, between the Case and Mt. Union
games. Several Ohio colleges are after
the date, but the matter is still hanging
The engagement of Prof. F. S. Breed
of the department of education toMissd
Mildred Jeanette Mack of Grand Hav-]
en, Mich., was announced today. It]
came as a result of a three-year court-
ship, culminating when Miss Mack at-
tended the summer session of the Uni-
versity last year.
Miss Mack graduated from Smith
College with the class of 1915. She]
is now teaching in the Grand Haven
high school.
Ralph Stone, '92L, formerly manag-
ing editor of The Michigan Daily,

Choose Writers
of Opera Music
Abraham T. Gornetzky, '17, Andrew
C. Haigh, '18, and Chester S. Dawton,
'1SE, have been chosen to write the
music for the 1916 Michigan Union
Opera. The men were chosen from a
large number of candidates, and the
competition for places was very keen.
Each of the successful candidates have
had several pieces accepted and it
remains for them to write the rest
of the opera scores.
The .dates for the various trips to
be made this year have been officially
set but no official announcement has
been made as regards the cities in
which the opera will be given. At
least four trips will be made, includ-
ing the one to Chicago.
The poster contest closes Friday,
and at that time all contestants must
have their drawings handed in to Ther-
on D. Weaver, general chairman. The.
drawings must not bear the names of
the artists, but must have upon them
some sign or characteristic, the mean-
ing of which must be handed in to
Chairman Wea er in a closed envelope.
After the selections have been made
the committee will open these en-

Many Object to Plan of Exemption for
Irish and Men With Scruples
Against Killing
London, Jan. 5.-Every seat in the
house of commons was filled and the
galleries were crowded to the utmost,
long before the opening this after-
noon of the most important session of
Parliament In the history of. ug-
land. The preliminary proceedings
were hardly audible on account of the
excitement which preceded Premier
Asquith's entrance.
Military Service Is Big Issue.
Not a sound was perceptible when
Premier Asquith arose at 3:10 o'clock
to read the military service bill mak-
ing provision with respect to military
service in connection with the present
war. The premier was frequently
cheered as he referred to the figures
w: hir Derby's recruiting campaign
whichhlie described as wonderful. His
asertion that the figures failed to
make out a case for general copul-
sion were also welcomed by loud calls
of " ear! Hear!'
The first disturbance came at the
Premier's reference to the limited area
in which the new measure will be ef-
fective, meaning that Ireland would
be excluded from the bill.
Object to Conscientious Shirkers.
The real out-cry, however, came
when the premier declared that among
the exemptions would be men with
"conscientious objections to undertake
combatant service." Calls for an ex-
planation were heard on all sides.
The premier repeated his words
twice explaining that many men might
be quite willing to serve their country,
men who are excellent patriots but
who object on conscientious grounds
to taking of a life. Loud protests in-
terrupted the reading of the bill, the
interruptions lasting several minutes.
The opposition was led by Sir John
Simon, who has just resigned from the
cabinet as home secretary. He spoke
immediately after Premier Asquith, de-
livering yscathing arraigement o
Lord Derby's report. His entire oppo-
sition was directed not against the
government measure, but against the
Derby report, the figures of which he
denounced as entirely erroneous and
Charles R. Brown, dean of the Yale
Divinity school, will speak Sunday
evening at the First Methodist church
under the auspices of Wesleyan Guild,.
"The True Measure of Life" will be
the speaker's subject on this occasion
and the address promises -to be one
of interest.
Besides being a lecturer of note,
Dean Brown has written many suc-
cessful books. Among those that have
gained wide circulation are "Modern
Man's Religion," "Latent Energies of
Life," "Quest of Life" and "Young
Man's Affairs."
A meeting will be held tonight at the
Union at 7:30 o'clock for the purpose
of establishing a volunteer Artillery
Corps. The idea is to have an or-
ganization similar to that which now
exists at Yale. The government fur-
nishes the necessary equipment there
to the extent of a battery, which con-
sists of four pieces. All men inter-
ested are asked to attend.
To Arrange for J-Hop Ticket Sale.
Arrangements for placing the J-Hop
tickets on sale will be made at a

committee meeting to be held at the
Union next Sunday afternoon. The
attendance will be limited to 300
couples as usual, and the pasteboards
will sell at $5.00. It has been decided
that this year tickets for house party
chaperones will cost the same as those
for students.

Professor Allen S. Whitney of the
department of education ha an-
nounced his engagement to Miss
Maybelle Howe, a leading social set-
tlement worker of New York city, and
a graduate of Vassar college. Miss
Howe is a sister of Burton Howe of
Grand Rapids. It was at the wedding
of Burton Howe to Elizabeth Cooley,
daughter of Dean and Mrs. Mortimer
E. Cooley, which took pla herd about
five years ago that Professor Whitney
and Miss Howe first met.
New York, Jan. 5.-The Greek liner
Thessaloniki, which has been more
than a week puzzling the nautical
world by messages appealing for aid,
is now a derelict, probably 50 miles
east by southwest off Sandy Hook, and
her skipper, Captain Goulandis and
ninety men, the larger part of his
crew, are coming this way aboard the
Anchor liner Perugia, from Meditter-
ranean ports. It is probable they will
get inside Sandy Hook Friday morn-
ing. The news of the rescue of the
Greek liner crew came through the
Scandinavian American liner United
States, which had sailed far out of her
course and lost more than two days
trying to succor the Greek skipper
and his crew.

Campus Has New Electric Sign.
Students returning from Christmas
vacation were surprised when they
were greeted with a warm "Welcome
Back" from the window of the Engi-
neering arch.
The cause of the commotion was
the new electric intermittent flashing
sign that was presented to the society
by Jay 11. Schmidt, '16E, as a Christ-
mas gift. The lettering on the sign
is changeable, and by its means the
campus will be kept informed of all
important activities.
