that Coach Macklin's crew in East
Lansing will hear and heed. Michi-
gan's cheering section is not to be
outdone in Saturday's contest at Ferry
field, and a program has been ar-
ranged for this evening's yell-fest
that will loosen up every loyal chard
in the university.
Promptly at 7:10 the doors of the
auditorium will be thrown open, and
the first of the crowd to enter will

By J. C. B. Parker
Student councilmen took action
last night. in the movement to further
good sportsmanship on the part of
student x ooters and thus to assist in
building up a better and finer Mich-
Their a ction took the form of a cir-
cular letter which was drawn up and
passed 'and authorized to be sent to
the different fraternities, house clubs
and so(ieties. Vhe letter is couched
in terras not coercive or dictatorial.
It merely is a suggestion and a plea
to the student body.
The context of the letter follows:
To the Student Body of the University:
Michigan has always been known
among universities as being a college
with 'not only a great reputation in
athletics but also with a reputation
for fairness and good sportsmanship.
It is a great thing to be a fighter
'and yet remain courteous and chival-
rous at the same time. Michigan, with
one or two exceptions, has always
been able to do this in the past.
Let's make it traditional!
To do this, it is necessary to make
every student feel his individual re-
sponsibility in doing his share.
We, therefore, ask everyone to do
his part in showing courtesy to visit-
ing rooters and teams.
Let's show not only the best teams
but also the best sportsmanship.
THE STUDENT COUNCIL.
Tonig ht' Michigan students will
meet ini Hill auditorium to help each
other acquire fighting spirit for a
loyal. support of their team at the
gamte against the Aggies tomorrow. It
ha'3 been planned to have one of the

o f good sportsmanship and how nec-
assary it is to the good name of the

WORLD CONGRESS TO BE DIS-

Definite information contained in a
telegram from William Howard Taft,
ex-president of the United States, says
that he will speak in Hill auditorium
either November 13 or December 10.
The earlier dates is practically cer-
tain of being chosen.
The Oratorical association and the
Women's league, which are handling
the arrangements for the coming lec-
ture, will be represented by commit-
tees in a joint meeting to be held
within a day or two. The date No-
vember 13 is expected to be decided
upon at this meeting. Other prepara-
tions, as fixing of the admission price,
entertainment of the visitor and the
like, also will be taken into consid-
Some phase of the ex-president's
views on world peace, a world con-
gress and national preparation will
undoubtedly be touched upon in the
lecture. But according to the speak-
er's custom since his retirement from
ofl^e, no politics will be discussed.
Mr. Taft's presence at Youngstowi,
Ohio, on the night before the 13th of
November affords Michigan the op-
portunity of securing the engagement.

Christmas has been filled except the

London, Oct. 21.-French and Brit-
