200 0 MEMBERS IN
YOST, LAWTON, REIMANN, PINNEY
AND RUMMEL TO SPEAK
COMMITTEE OF 100 TO WORK
Success of Today's Effort Will Make
Organization the Largest
Coach Fielding H. Yost, J. Fred
Lawton '11, Lewis Reimann '16, N. E.
Pinney '16, and General Chairman
Henry Rummel '16L are the speakers
who have been selected to speak to
the Committee of 100 of the Y. M. C.
A., which will banquet at Newberry
hall at 5:30 o'clock this afternoon.
The banquet is to be held preparatory
to the committee's one-night canvass
for the 2,000 Y. M. C. A. members
that are necessary to make the Mich-
igan student's "Y" the "largest as well
as the oldest organization of its kind
in the world."
"How the assurance of the new
building will demand work on a larger
scale" will be the theme of Coach Yost,
who has been intimately connected
with the building campaign since the
early part of August. Lewis Reimann
will outline the various plans for the
enlarged work for this coming year.
Earl Pinney will furnish the actual
information as to just how the can-
vass is to be carried on. Chairman
Henry Rummel will act as toastmas-
ter and is expected to contribute to
the sum total of enthusiasm, and as
usual in recent "Y" membership cam-
paigns, J. Fred Lawton, erstwhile
comedian, song-writer and general
campus practitioner, has been secured
to give one of his famous "pep talks."
At the final meeting of the execu-
tive committee last evening the final
arrangements were made for the can-
vass of the fraternities. A man has
been secured in each organization who
has agreed to canvass all of the mem-
bers. In this way the committee feels
that it will be able to save much time
in actual canvassing.
Lewis Reimann, '16, president of
the "Y" for this year, when seen last
evening, said: "Because of the heavy
building campaign and of the $40,000
still to be raised from outside sources,
the 'Y' will have to depend this year
more than ever upon 'student mem-
berships. Let me say that we are
planning to enlarge in every field be-
cause of our increased committee
force, and since the memberships can
be taken out at any sum from a dollar
up, we expect to get the necessary
The campaign will last only two
hours and a half, as the men will be
asked to report at the "Y" office to
Philip Lovejoy, '16, at 10 o'clock.
PROTEST AGAINST ACTION OF
ENGLISH SENT TQ PRESIDENT
State Department Objects in Note to
British Intervention in
Washington, Oct. 11.-The State
Department submitted a note to Pres-
ident Wilson today protesting against
Great Britain's intervention in Amer-
ican trade. It is believed that the
president will give his attention to
the matter within the next few days.
Ever since the sinking of the liner
Arabic was disavowed by the German
government last week, diplomats have
been awaiting the drafting of a note
to the Triple Entente protesting
against intervention in American
trade. Having finished with Germany,
it looks as if President Wilson will
send a strong note to Great Britain.

MAKE AWARDS TO WOMEN FOR
WORK IN CAMPUS ACTIVITIES
Sweater, Pins and Arm Bands Given
to Leaders Under New
Miss Alice Evans, physical director
of Barbour gymnasium, last spring
instituted a point system for women
similar to that used in all campus
activities. In this system, points were
awarded for participation in the va-
rious sports open to women, and at
the end of the season various insignia
were given for points earned. For
thirty points an "M" arm band, spe-
cially designed, was given; for sixty,
an "M" pin in sterling silver, and for
one hundred points, a sweater.
In June, 131 women had points to
their credit. Of these, Elsa Drittler,
'15, was awarded a sweater; Ger-
trude Royle, '15, and Ada Inglis, '15,
were given silver pins, while Laura
Miller, '16, Elizabeth Kennedy, '16,
Helen Vandermeer, -'16, Janet Macfar-
land, '17, Jeanette Armstrong, '17, and
Ruth MacLachlan, '18, were awarded
"M" arm bands.
Ten points were given for a per-
fect record in gymnastics during
1914-'15. The following women re-
ceived such an award: Marion Gal-
ton, '18, Georgiana Pockman, '18, Lou-
ise Garaghty, '18, Helen Aherns, '18.

ell, '18, Alice Woessner, '18, Laura
