Naval headquarters has received
orders from the navy department that
all strictly naval subjects in the Uni-
versity may be dropped by men in
the naval unit. These men must have
36 hours of work instead of the 42
formerly required.
Three men have handed in their
applications for release to the naval
headquarters. These applications
will be sent to Great Lakes, if they
are approved here. From there they
will be sent to Washington for the
final approbation.

Thnanksgiving Day Proclamation
"'Now, therefore our God, we thank Thee and praise Thy glorious name."
We, the people of Michigan, have many reasons for thankfulness.
We are thankful that a dread epidemic has been stayed through'
the prompt measures taken by the public health authorities through-
out the state and the intelligent co-operation of the whole people.
We are thankful that we are Americans, and that no part of our
land has been laid waste by the cruel ravages of war.
We are thankful that our Michigan soldiers and sailors, by their
deeds of valor, have written a glorious chapter in the annals of the
Great War; and that the indomitable spirit of our people has manifest-
ed itself to the end.
But, most of all, are we thankful that this terrible, devastating
war, which for more than nineteen months has dominated our thought
and dictated our action, is at last practically ended and soon we shAll
be free to devote our energies and activities to the constructive arts
of peace. The long night of darkness and sorrow and travail and tears
and blood is over and the day of blessed peace has dawned upon the
world-peace with victory.

Germans Receive no Berlin Lnforma-
tion on Way to Homes in
(By Associated Press)
Paris, Nov. 27.-Marshal Foch, ac-
companied by General Becastelniu,
arrived at Strassburg today, and re-
viewed the army of occupation, the
war office announced tonight. He
then passed through the town at the
head of the troops. The marshal was
accorded a great ovation as com-
mander-in-chief of the Entente arm-
American army of occupation, Nov.
24.-(2 P. M.)-While there are a few
stragglers behind it, the German line
in front of the American army to-
night runs generally from Bitburg,
through Treves to Oberemmel Ober-
zers, and Losherm.
Huns Wear Red Ribbons
The number of Germans wearing
red ribbons on their breasts is report-
ed to be increasing. There have been
several reports of incidents where of-
ficers have been stripped of their in-
signia by the men, or have drawn
.private uniforms and marched with
their men for their own protection.
There is said to be much dissention
among the rank and file of the Ger-
mans thus far during the withdraw-
al. Soldiers are remaining with their
detachments owing to the fact that
they would be unabile to obtain food
if they desert or attempt to reach
homes ahead of the army.
s Virtually no news is being received
by the soldiers from Berlin, according
to reports. All the soldiers appeared
to be eager to reach points near home
as soon as possible.

Chicago, Nov. 27.-- The proposed
postseason gridiron contest between
the Universities of Illinois and Michi-
gan at Chicago on Dec. 7 was aban-
doned tonight because of the opposi-
tion of the faculty of Illinois. The
Illinois team, winners of the 1918 con-
ference title, was disbanded tonight.
(The question of the settlement of
the 1918 Conference title will be re-
opened if Michigan wins the 0. S. U.
game, for Pittsburg and Michigan will
be the only two teams in the United
States who have been undefeated this
year. Illinois has been conquered,
but not by a Conference team. Mich-

Dr. Etienne Burnet of the French
mission spoke on "Pasteur as a Rep-
resentative of the French Scientific
Spirit" yesterday afternoon in the
Natural Science auditorium He dwelt
on the essential democracy of the
great scientist, as the son of a tan-
ner, and as the inheritor of the free

'was an enthusiast and a 'sentimental-

Pasteur's success he ascribed to the
clear insight with which he analyzed
the problems before him, and to the
infinite amount of. hard, sustained
work he devoted to their solution.
Pasteur's Attainments Are Varied
He divided Pasteur's scientific ca-
-reer into four periods. In the first,

ed the problem of optically active or-
gani compounds. For the winegrow-
ers of France he mastered the mys-
teries of fermentation, disproving the
theory of the spontaneous evolution
of life. From this he came to study
the activities of other micro-organ-
isms, and so arrived at the greatest
work of his life, on infectious dis-
eases. To the solution of this prob-
lem he made a large contribution in
his discovery of the principle of vac-
LouisPasteur believed that the de-
velopment of science in its highest
expression is most essential to a na-

of the present laboratory system of
France. The institute named after
him was started in 1888. It is inde-
pendent of the state, supported by
international gifts.
Doctor Burnet Is War Hero
Dr. Burnet is a meniber of the staff
of the Pasteur institute, Paris, and a
surgeon in the French army. He

"Putting these people on the staff
means giving them the big chance to
serve the University," said Harold
Makinson, '21M, manager, in speaking
of his appointments. "They have
shown that they have good stuff in
them. .Now it is up to them to prove
by loyalty and service that they de-
serve the faith we place in them."
"Hardest Two Months"
"This staff has pulled The Daily
through the hardest two months of
its existence," said Mildred Mighell,
'18, managing editor, "and without
any boasting, they are putting out far
and away the best of the country's
college papers at the present time. If
they keep up the pace and the cam-
pus continues to show a spirit of
helpfulness and willingness to over-
look our mistakes we, are going to
makle a record in spite of war times."

Treaty of Ancon
Settles Disp ute
(By Associated Press)
Santiago, Chile, Nov. 27.-The com-
plaint of the Peruvian minister of for-
eign affairs that the demonstration
against the Peruvians at Iquique were
countenanced by the authorities is
denied by the Chilean minister of for-
eign affairs. This denial has reas-
surred commercial and social circles.
The newspapers are of the unanim-
ous belief that everything can be ar-
ranged by the fulfillment of the treaty
of Ancon, signed in 1883. In official
circles the opinion prevails that arbi-
tration would be the best means to
bring about the fulfillment of this
Under the treaty of Ancon, Chile
was to return possession of the pro-
vinces of Tacna and Arca, belonging
to the Peruvian department of Moque-
gua, for a period of 10 years and then
submit "to popular vote whether those
territories are to belong to Chile or
Peru." At the expiration of the per-
iod (1893), Chile failed to comply with
the agreement and retained forcible
possession of the territory.

(By Associated press)
Copenhagen, Nov. 27.-The German
government will invite President Wil-
son to visit Germany while he is in
Paris, Nov. 27. - The problem of
conducting the proceedings of the
peace conference in English is being
discussed, with some prospect that
this innovation-will be broughtabout.
If it is it will be the first great inter-
national congress with English as the
official language, as French has long
been recognized as the medium of
English More Convenient
For practical reasons, it is sai4, the
use of the English language wouftl.be
more convenient to a larger number
of the delegates than French, for dur-
ing the session of the inter-Allied con-
ference all but two 'spoke English,
while a considerable number did not
speak French, and were unable to un-
derstand the procedure when French
was used.
Economic questions are coming
prominently to the front in connec-
tion with the presence here of Her-
bert C. Hoover, the American food
administrator, who was joined today
by Edwin N. Hurley, chairman of the
shipping board. They conferred at.
length this afternoon at Colonel
House's residence on food administra-
tion and tonnage.
Wilson to Name Delegates Soon
Washington, Nov. 27. - President
Wilson's plans for attending the peace
conference were all matured except
the hour and day of departure. His
departure, however, is certain early
next week.
It is entirely probable that the first
announcement of the personnel of the
American delegation will be made in
the President's address at the opening
of congress, which will be delivered
Monday or Tuesday. At the same time
the President may take occasion to
make a statement to the country, as
well as to congress as to his going
to Europe, something no other presi-
dent has ever done.
i Cables to Transmit News First
The most important announcement
that has yet been made in connection
with the official plans of the peace
conference came today. It was that
there would be absolutely no censor-
ship on the news which the American
newspaper correspondents send home.
At the personal request of President
Wilson both the French and the Brit-
ish will relax all censorship on all
American, newspaper dispatches tell-
ing of the deliberations.
Furthermore, to facilitate the trans-
mission of news to this country, the
government, through its recently ac-
quired control of the cable lines,1will
give news in preference to cable trans-
mission second to government official
business. News will take preference

over all commercial business on the
cable lines.
he professors on the campus as
well as the students are awaiting
with interest the decision from the
Commission on Training Camps at
Washington concerning the return of
the semester system. The introduc-
tion of the three term arrangement
necessitated a change in many of the
courses. Some had to be condensed,
and others stretched out'over two
terms, and some have been meeting
oftener in the week in order to get
the work within the shorter period.
How this will be adjusted in case of
a return to the former system will
have to be considered when the deci-
sion is reached, but many feel that
it would be easier to go back to the
old way than to proced with so com-
plicated a measure as the three terms.
