YEAR BOOKS SOLD
Orders for Michiganensian Dispose of
Many Volumes; Only Two More
Days ,for Subscribing
SENIOR PICTURES CAUSE DELAY
According to results given out late
last night by the business staff of
the Michiganensian, the subscription
sale which' began Tuesday morning
has resulted in disposing of over
three-fourths of the thousand books
contracted for. In view of the fact
that but two days remain in which
subscriptions can be received, it is
imperative that all those who desire
books hand in their names at once,
since, as before announced,,no addi-
tional copies can be ordered after the
subscription list is closed at the end
of this week.s
Louis M. Bruch, managing editor
of the Michiganensian, desires to call
the attention of seniors to the fact that
assyet only about one-half of the mem-
bers of the senior classes have had
sittings for year book pictures. Un-
der the terms of the contracts made
with the official photographers, an ex-
tra charge will be made for all pic-
tures taken after February 1 and no
picture will, under any consideration,
be accepted later than February 15,
this date occurring just at the begin-
ning of the second semester, when
photographerswillnbe very busy. This
understanding was necessary in order
that the year book appear at the usual
time in the spring. Inasmuch as but
a little over two weeks intervene be-
fore all pictures must be in, seniors
are requested to arrange at once for
sittings, in order to avoid the conges-
tion and confusion usually incident to
the last day.
Seniors and juniors in the engi-
neering college interested in the
school conducted for college men by
the Western Electric company, will
have an opportunity to learn the
details of the system at a meeting

On Friday Mr. Willard will give
two lectures to students in chemical
engineering. The first will be at
9:00 o'clock in the morning in room
165 of the chemical building before
the class in building materials, and
will be on cable manufacture. The
second talk will be given to senior
chemical !ngineers, at 11:00 o'clock
in the morning in room 303 of the
chemical building. This talk will be
on rubber manufacture.
WANT MEN TO PLAY BRIDGE
Union Tournament in Need of Greater
Number of Entrants
The Union Bridge Tournament,
which begins Friday. night, has al-
ready aroused considerable interest
and over twenty names. have been put
upon the entrance sheet posted in the
Union. Although only a few less than
last year's registration, twenty play-
ers are not enough to carry on the
tournament as the committee would
like to have it, and so Russel B.
Stearns, '16L, who is in cifarge of the
arrangements, is again issuing the call
for players. Everyone who wishes to
play will have to sign up by Friday
since the games start that evening.
ENGLISH MINERS MAY STRIKE
Federaion Threatens Opposition to
London, Jan. 12.-The most serious
move yet contemplated in opposition
to conscription was made today by the
Miners' Federation, the strongest
union in the United Kingdom, when
by a vote of two to one, it decided
to submit to a referendum of the
miners a resolution for a national
strike against the enforcement of the
military service bill. Such a strike
would mean the crippling of the
British fleet, munitions factories and
. Together with the news of this ac-
tion, came word that the Welsh Fed-
eration of Coal Miners by a vote of
162 to 83 had adopted a resolution to
walk out in case the military bill was
passed, and also it was said that a
resolution condemning conscriptionf
had been passed by South Wales coal
miners in Cardiff, 211 to 35.

PLAN FOR WOMAN'S GARGOYLE
Philadelphia, Pa., Jan. 12.---One stu-
f lent was killed and six others were
injured in the annual bowl fight to-
day between the freshman and sopho-
more classes of the University of
Pennsylvania. The fight was won by
the first year men.
The young man who lost his life
was William Liston, of Elizabeth, N.
J., a 17-year-old freshman. The most
seriously injured were Gordon Smyth,
who suffered concussion of the brain;
Arthur Essick, who sustained a sprain-
ed leg; and John Hill,, who received
lacerations. The others suffered fron
shock and exhaustion.
Immediately after the news of the
tragic ending of the bowl fight reach-
ed police headquarters a detail of the
murder squad was sent to the univer-
sity to arrest witnesses. They will
appear before the co-roner when the
inouest into Liston's death is held.
I The fight was one of the fiercest in
years and Liston's death was the first
fatality in the long list of fights since
There were 700 men in the struggle,
400 sophomores and 300 freshmen.
Issue New )Directory for Ann Arbor
A new directory for Ann Arbor and
Wshtenaw county has been issued
by R. L. Polk & Co. of Detroit. It
includes a complete list of the resi-
dences and business houses of Ann
Arbor, a street and avenue guide, a
list of the public and semi-pubih
buildings of the city and a classified

ing business in the county, arranged;
according to occupations and given

"Day of the Brass Band Past," Says+
Frederick Palmer in Talk
SCORES NAVY UNPREPAREDNESS
"War is now the practical business
of killing. The age of the brass but-'
tons, the bugles and the military
bands is past. All the flag waving is
dead. Nobody, anymore, believes in
the glory of war; it is an efficient sys-
tem of plain slaughter. In my opin-
ion, this is the most encouraging sign
in the world for an ultimate peace
among all the nations of the world."
In expressing the above sentiments
last night in Hill auditorium before
an audience of about 3,500 people,
Frederick Palmer, noted war corre-
spondent, has brought to the United
States one of the most truly realistic
accounts of the great war now wag-
ing in Europe. In his address, Mr.
Palmer, who has spent the last year
at the French front as the only official
press correspondent of the United

WHAT'S GOING ON]
Washington, Jan. 12.-The murder-
ing of 17 Americans by Mexican ban-
dits in territory controlled by Car-
ranza has apparently brought the
Mexican situation to a crisis.
Members of Congress who have re-
mained silent for the last two years
under the policy of watchful waiting
threw aside restraint today and de-
manded protection for American lives
and property. Senators admitted open-
ly on the floor that they favor inter-
vention if that is the only way in
which American citizens can be giveh
the protection to which they are en-
titled in Mexico.
Two resolutions were introduced,
one in the Senate calling for inter-
vention in the event of Carranza be-
ing unable to furnish adequate pro-
tection for citizens of the United
States, and the other in the House,
calling on the President to inform
Congress whether or not in his opin-
ion the time had come to discard
watchful waiting and take other steps
for the safeguarding of American lives
in Mexico. The President's Mexican
policy was bitterly attacked in the
Senate, being described by Senator
Borah as a "side-stepping, compromis-
ing, procrastinating, apologizing, un-
Theradministration and "state de-
partment officials seemed bewildered
by the sudden turn in the Mexican
situation and were -anxious over the
effect of the incident upon' American
feeling toward the Carranza govern-
ment. Upon the receipt of the con-
summation of the massacre the state
department sent representations to
Carranza requiring him to order the
immediate pursuit, capture and pun-
ishment of the perpetrators of the
"dastardly crime" and strongly urging
better protection for foreigners in the
mining district of Chihuahua.
Secretary Lansing denied that the
state department had obtained safe
conduct for the Americans or had.is-
