The Honorable George Haven Put-
nam, famous publisher, writer and
Civil War veteran, will speak under
the auspices of the University Histor-
ical association on Thursday, October
21, in Sarah Caswell Angell hall. Mr.
Putnam is the best known of all Amer-
ican publishers, having earned this
recognition by his constant writing
and leadership in important cultural
movements in this and other coun-
It has been said that Mr. Putnam
has done. more to strengthen the re-
lations between England and America
than any other living man, and he is
often called the ambassador of the
American public to England. His
close associations with the publishers
of England have brought him in touch
with the world of English letters. He
has discussed problems with Lord
Kitchener and is an intimate friend of
the Honorable George Trevelyan, the
noted historian, who delivered a lec-
ture in Ann Arbor last year.
As an author, he is constantly at
work, and his recent book on the
"Memories of a Publisher" illustrates
his keen appreciation of the accom-
plishments of others. In addition to
this, his volume on the "Memories of
My Youth" is rated as one of the best
f nmdern productions.

Glass Doors of Main Entrtnce
Large Window Smashed by
In a sophomore class rush on the
Majestic theater last night just be-
fore the second show, Clarence B.
Worth, '14E, C. M. Carouthers, '18,
and Harold F. Shank, '18, were ar-
rested by the police and arraigned on
a charge of disorderly conduct. The
men were later released on bail of
$50 each, and were remanded for ex-
amination at the police court at 9:30
o'clock this morning.
About 200 men were in the crowd
which gathered about the theater be-
fore the close of the first perform-
ance, and when Manager Frank J.
O'Donnell of the Majestic refused to
grant the men a free show they im-
mediately rushed the theater. A num-
her of policemen and several rein-
forcements from the sheriff's office
endeavored to quiet the crowd, and in
the melee which ensued Worth, who
is an employee of a Detroit automo-
bile firm, and who held a ticket for
the second performance, was appre-
hended by the police for attempting
to force his way in.
This so incensed the crowd that,
despite the efforts of W. A. P. John,'16,
who endeavored to disperse the as-
semblage, the glass doors of the main
entrance were smashed and one of
the l= '~Y v ;dows and a large are
light in the front of the building were
The damage is estimated at $25.
According to T. P. Soddy, '16E, pres-
ident of the student council, a special
meeting of that body will be called
for this evening at 7:15 o'clock in
the north wing of University hall for
the purpose of investigating the riot
and to take measures for the punish-
ment of the participants.
