BLUE DEVILS WILL
HAVE BIG WELCOME
The French army. band, known as
the Blue Devils, which is due to ar-
rive in Ann Arbor Saturday, will be
met in a style that befits its reputa-
tion. They will come! in from Lansing
by train about 1 o'clock and will re-
ceive a reception at the depot such
as is rivalled \not even by the home-
coming of a winning football team.
There will be a band to meet them-
the one of the S. A. T. C. and the
naval unit combined. The military
parade, consisting of the fourth bat-
talion of the S. A. T. C., and a detach-
ment from the naval unit, will act as
an escort. From the depot they will
march up State street and directly
to Ferry field.
When Ferry field is reached, a re-
view is to be staged on the football
field in direct view of all the specta-
tors, with all those who were in the
parade taking part. Directly after
the review, a flag-raising is planned
as one of the features of the day.
Both French and American flags will
be raised as the bands play the na-
tional anthems. The S. A. T. C. and
naval units practiced this review yes-
terday afternoon, so it should come
off without a hitch.
The Frenchmen will stay in Ann
Arbor all night, and barracks have
prepared quarters for them on the
third floor of the Union building.

was released Nov. 11 and reached the
lines at 7 o'clock, Friday morning,

rious points of capture on the front
to a German prison camp at Louppy,
on French soil. When the nu'mber in
that camp reached 300 the men were
usually loaded on trucks and taken
north to a camp farther from the
The fact that there were but 205
men in the Louppy camp when the
armistice was signed made them the
first to regain the American lines, as
they had but 60 kilmeters to walk.
The released men were given two
days' rations but no directions. Al-
though 40 French prisoners who
caught up with them had maps it
took the party four days to reach
the advance guards of Dickman's
third American army.
Church was cut off and captured
while making observations with offi-
cers in the front line. When last heard
from he was attached to an advanced
ordnance detachment north of the
Verdun hills. The story of the men
who returned with Church is given

DECISIONS, HOLD NOMINATIONS

as usual by little interest and a small
vote. A hundred people at any of
the class meetings with the exception
of the first year meetings was unusu-
al. Several dead-locks resulted and
the freshmen engineers and senior
lits merely nominated candidates in-
stead of holding both the nomination
and elections as had been planned by
the Student council.
Perhaps more classes held their
elections yesterday than have done so
in any one single day for many years.
The organization worked in an ex-
cellent manner and the councilmen
in charge deserve commendation upon
the way the work was planned and
The elections resulted as follows:
The senior lit nominations, result-
ed in the nomination of Laurel A.
Lundquist and Alfred Mason for pres-
ident, Mary Overman and Emma Riggs
for vice-president, Marcia Pinkerton.

ON SALE SATURDAY
With the army and navy dominating
the football program of the M. A. C.
game, it will be ready for circulation
This year's M. A. C. program is one
of the best in the history of the
school, according to those who have
seen many of them. From the cover,
to the last page, it is both attractive
and interesting. The army and navy,
as well as the football squad, are rep-
resented in the three color cover. The
blue of the navy and the khaki of the
army are both prominent on the out-
The program is highly illustrated
with pictures of both teams, the indi-
vidual men on the squads, and the
coaches. A photograph of Tad Wei-
man, captain in absentia of the 1918
squad is featured, while the honor
page is dedicated to Major Durkee of
the S. A. T. C. of the University, with
a full page cut, surrounded by a U.
of M. border.
Articles on M. A. C.-Michigan re-
lations, The S. A. T. C. and Football,
A Review of the Season, and other'
timely numbers make up the literary
part of the book
Complete information on both
squads, which is the reason for the is-
suance of the program, is supplied in
measures that give the readers prac-
tically all information that they wish
about both squads.

unless the minimum goal of $170,500,-

among the men of the French and
Italian armies. "It also would be

The "Come Back" mass meeting
awoke the campus to the extent that
the amount reached was more favor-
able than was expected by the com-
mittee. Many came to Lane hall to
make pledges, and some to make ad-
ditions to the pledges they had already
made. Twelve teams went out Wed-
nesday night enthusiastically, and had
good results. The main difficulty has
been that aboat 20 civilian men have
left no record of their address on
their registration cards, and it has
been impossible for the committee to
reach them. Those whose addresses
are not recorded ,should come to Lane
hall and make their pledges.
Yesterday $734.05 was pledged in
the United War Work campaign. Four
women, the only four to contribute
averaged $6 each. The total number
of contributors was only 155.
No naval unit men were on yester-
day's list but the S. A. T. C. men aver-
aged over $4 perman which is more
than the general average among the
military men. The grand total last
evening was $15,793.78.
The booth used in the campaign are
to be used by the War Camp commun-
ity service on Saturday as information
bureaus. They are to be left in the
respective positions at either end of
the campusand are especially for the
benefit of the many visitors in the
city for the M. A. C. game.
A cleanup is . planned for today;
every civilian man will be given an
op'portunity to do his part. Voluntary
contributions will still be received at
