(greatest Russian Victory
Since War Begau
London, Jan. 27.-The fall of Du-
razzo, the chief seaport of northern
Albania, is imminent. The Austrian
army, which in its southward sweep
took Scutari and San Giovanni di Me-
dua, is now only seven hours' march-
ing from Durazzo, the capture of
which will put the Austrians in com-
plete possession of northern Albania.
Avlona, the biggest Albanian port, is
threatened by the Bulgar invading
The paramount question regarding
the whole Albanian situation now is:
Will the Italian expeditionary force
at Avlona make a stand and defend
the port to the last? No resistance is
looked for at Durazzo, where Effad
Pasha with his comparatively small
army of Albanians and remnants of
the Montenegrin and Serbian armies
could do little to stem the tide of the
greatly superior and well equipped
In some quarters the belief is ex-
pressed that not the Bulgars who
took Berat, but the Austrians who
are now driving through the interior
toward the Adriatic cost, will attack
Avlona, because a Bulgarian move on
that port and a consequent clash with
the Italians would, it is argued, result
in a declaration of war between Italy
and Germany. A fact which streng-
thens this theory is that the Bulgars
could have long ago attacked Avlona,
but for some mysterious reasonwaited,
apparently marking time, until the
Astrians had made further progress
in the north and center.

EDDY TO THl AT
Y. X. C. A. Worker to Address Stu-
dents at Regular Sunday
PROMINENT IN SOCIAL " WORK
Although he has appeared in most
of the large colleges of the country,
Brewer Eddy will give his first address
in Ann Arbor under the auspices of the
Y. M. C. A. at 6:30 o'clock Sunday
night in the Arcade theatre.
Mr. Eddy is one of the secretaries
of the American Board of Foreign Mis-
sions in Boston and his work brings
him in touch with missionary condi-
4tions throughout the world so that he
speaks of the things he knows.
Despite the fact that he has seen
much of the world, the speaker has
the student point of view. He is one
of the youngest of the Board secre-
taries and has always kept in touch
with college men as traveling secre-
tary of the Student Volunteer move-
ment and as one of the leaders in the
Y. M. C. A. conferences at Northfield
Born in Kansas, a son of the middle
west, he was graduated from Yale
University with a B. A. and M. A. de-
Beginning at 6:10 o'clock, free mov-
ing pictures will be shown in the
Arcade theatre. Special music will
also be given.
Classes in the engineering college
will be dismissed at certain hours to-I
day in order that the engineers be
given an opportunity to express them-
selves on the proposed honor system.
The honor co mittee and the faculty
committee in charge of the class as-
semblies are interested in having a
large turnout at the meetings. The
honor committee urges that the class
members come out and vote, as the
faculty, when giving its decision on the
proposed system, will no doubt be
largely influenced by the number that
sign. Attendance at the meetings will
be checked up.
The proposed system will be pre-
sented to the faculty meeting on Sat-
urday along with a petition asking that
it be given a trial at the coming ex-

Special lighting, careful decorating
and elaborate costuming are a few
of the elements which will enter into
the Japanese act to be staged by 50
members of the Girls' Glee club for
the next Band Bounce, under the di-
rection of Miss Ellen M. Sargent, '16,
president of the association, and Miss
Nora Crant Hunt, vocal teacher at the
School of Music.
Preparations for the act are already
well under way and the energy which
the club is showing promises that it
will be one of the best numbers upon
the big scale program being prepared
for that occasion.
"Military Training" is the name of
a skit written for the Band Bounce by
Leon M. Cunningham, '16, full of clev-
er and entertaining features, explain-
ing the wisest course for thq univer-
sity to pursue in order to reach a
definite conclusion in the matter.

Five shows will be given in Ann Ar-

strenuous Work Marks Week Before
Party for Committeemen. Who
Perhaps very few people realize the
amount of work necessary to stage
"the greatest ever" Hop, which Feb-
ruary 11 will usher into our humble
midst. Let it be said, however, that
the committee for the 1916 Hop has
had a real live problem on its hands.
Instead of the Ticket sale dragging
on for weeks this year, all the trip-
pers of the light fantastic on the cam-
pus marched en masse to the Union
to get pasteboards for the big Junior
party, and in two days the entire sup-,
ply of the elusive admission cards
was exhausted. Then ca'me a hundred
tearful complaints from the gallants
who had invited "Her" to the big an-
nual function, and under this com-
pulsion, permission was obtained to
secure the use of Barbour gymnasium
for dancing, in addition to Waterman
This doubling of .accommodations,
with but two short weeks to complete
preparations, has thrown confusion in-
to all arrangements. Bids have had
to be reopened, and negotiations en-
tered into on contracts for increased
orders, plans must be arranged in re-
gard to the financial budget, and a
dozen new problems have intruded
upon the sanctity of examination pe-

Owing to the misuse of Michigan
suitcase stickers, the Student Council
at the regular meeting last night de-
cided to work through the local book-
stores to prevent their sale.
It was pointed out that the practice
was not one which gave a favorable
impression to outsiders in general and
that such conduct tended more to-
ward similar practices of high schools
and smaller colleges.
Russell Collins, '16, was appointed
chairman of the committee to visit
the merchants and try to induce them
to refrain from selling them.
A. S. Hart and H. A. Taylor, newly
elected members of the J-lit class,
and the J-Engineers respectively, were
welcomed into the Council and will
