(By Associated Press)
Washington, Nov. 30. - Never has
an annual address of the President
to congress, been awaited so anxious-
ly as the message to be delivered at
the opening of the winter session
Monday, on the eve before his depart-
ure to Europe to attend the peace
Many expect to hear something\ of
the American plans at the confer-
ence, as well as an outline of the
executive views on readjusting the
war organized countries to a peace
Joint Session Monday
Arrangements were made today for
a joint session in the house Monday
at 1 o'clock, after congressional lead-
ers had been notifld that the Presi-
dent had desired to be heard on the
first day instead of the second, in ord-
er to hasten his departure. The ad-
dress will constitute his goodbye to
congress and the people of the Unit-
ed States, for he is expected to sail
No official comment was forthcom-
ing dtrring the day on the personnel
of the peace conference. No one at-
tempted to say whether the President
would be regarded as a part of the
delegation. Informally it was Indic-
ated at the state department that the
point could not be cleared up, because
of the uncertainty of the course to
be followed by the heads of the as-
Republicans Want Special Committee
Some hundreds of attaches of the
commission will sail with the Presi-
dent on the steamship George Wash-
ington. The Orizaba, another boat,
leaving New York tomorrow at noon,
will carry several hundred newspaper
correspondents who will report the
proceedings of the conference.
Several Republicans in the senate
discussed introducing a resolution
to send a special committee with the
delegation to keep congress advised
of the proceedings.
American Warships Form Escort
London, Nov. 30.- President Wil-
son, upon reaching European waters,
will be escorted to Brest by American
warships, which will make up a for-
midable array. It is understood that
neither theFrench or British hate been
requested to aid in the naval recep-
tion. The British are discussing plans
to welcome the American President,
should he come here.
Boys of 18 Must Fill Out Blanks
Questionnaires are to be made out
by all registrants 18 years of age.
This order was canceled when the
armistice was signed, but later a new
one was issued ordering all boys 18
yearstof age to fill out questionnaires.
Due to the confusion many did not
make them out. They will be class-
ed as delinquents unless they ans-
wer the prescribed questions, and
mail the papers to their local boards.
I Organizations which have not
sent in copy for the Michigan-
ensian will have a last chance
to bring it in this morning. The
editor will be in the Press
building to receive it.
Miania Kicked Out
of Germania- Cobb
"For valor, courage and gallantry
and all the qualities that make for
splendid soldiers and the unanimous
determination that permeates the
American forces from general to pri-
vate, the sun never shone on the equal
of those following the Stars and
Stripes," said Irvin S. Cobb, last
night at Hill auditorium. "If the late
kaiser hadn't had his psychology on
backwards he never wouldhave
thought in a thousand years that he
could lick such boys.
"And when I think of the ruins
behind and the terror before, the
treaties regarded as pieces of paper,
of Edith Cavell standing before a
firing squad, of the Lusitania and her
burden of helpless women and chil-
dren, and of hundreds of Red Cross
sanctuaries which were consciously
bombed from on high by airplanes, I
say, when I thinly of what they did
do and what they intended to do, my
one regret was then, and is now, that
the pile of German dead was not 10
times as high, long and wide as it
"I am glad that at last we entered
the war, not for selfish motive or
personal gains, without dream of
world power, but rather in order to
make the world a' fit place in which
to live in peace with our neighbors,
in order to kick the mania out of
Germania, and lastly to work a per-
manent and everlasting cure'for that
theory of the 'divine right' of degen-
erate epileptics to rule over human
"We will not take any territory
from the war except those little green
mounds in France where 50,000 of
our dead are sleeping forever.
"I think I have already discerned
a movement of boasting or optimism
on our part, to think we have won
the great battle and have caused the
foe to surrender before he would if
we had not entered; but let us re-
member that there is a path of 4,000,-
000 dead of the French, British Bel-
gians, and Italians before us. How-

ins. Classes will now begin at 8 o'clock and last until 12 o'clock,

that the necessary conditions were
almost unbearable. A faculty man

Baruch Resigns from Industries Board
(By Associated Press)
Washington, Nov. 30. - Bernard
Baruch of the war industries board
of the United States, has forwarded
his resignation to President Wilson,
to take effect the first of the year.
His decision to resign has no connec-
tion with reports that he is to be
made the secretary of the treasury.
CHANGES IN S. . T. C.
LE@S DRILL AND MORE STUDY;
COMPULSORY SUNDAY WORK -
Classes in the University will be-
gin at 8 instead of 7:30 o'clock as
heretofore this year because of con-
tingencies arising from a change in
schedule in the S. A. T. d. routine.
Starting tomorrow the corps will drill
only from 3 until 4:30 o'clock; and
the half hour saved this way, with
an additional fifteen minutes, will be
added to the evening study period,
which will now be held only five eve-
nings a week instead of six.
Drill Hours Cut
A communication from Washing-
ton about 10 days ago, ordered that
the time for military work be reduc-
ed from 11 to 9 hours" per week to
allow more time for academic work.
This necessitated cutting the actual
drill periods to one and a half hours
five days a week, as the rest of the
nine hours is taken up with inspec-
tion and other formations.
At a conference of the military,
naval, and University authorities here
it was decided that the students could
accomplish more in five two and
three-quarter hour study periods
than in six lasting only two hours. It
was agreed to discontinue compulsory
Sunday night study.
Taps Sounded Later
Prof. Lewis M. Gram explained last
night that it was thought best to give
the men some time to themselves aft-
er study so it was decided not to
sound taps until 10:15 o'clock in-
stead of 10 o'clock as is done at pre-
sent. The evening study period
formerly ended at 9 o'clock, but will
now extend until 9:30 o'clock.
"In order to allow the men time
for eight hours and a quarter sleep
under the new arrangement it is nec-
essary to start classes at 8 instead of
7:30 o'clock," Professor Gram stated.
"Although there will be no more
compulsory study on Sunday eve-
nings the Library will be open for

Date for German Election Set

Berlin, Nov. 29.-The council of the
people's commissioners has fixed Feb.
16 as the date for the election of rep-
resentatives to the constituent assem-
bly, conditional to the approval of the
soldiers' and workmen's council
which will meet Dec. 15.
The empire is to be divided into 38
divisions which will send from six,
to 16 members to the council, accord-
ing to their population. The num-

Proving to be one of the wonders
of Coach Yost's war time eleven,
Goetz is responsible for the victory
of the Wolverines over the Ohio State
First to get under kicks, first to
intercept passes, and first to block
any attempts of the opposition, to
kick, Goetz usually gets what he goes
after. In the Chicago game he prov-
ed a star. In the Syracuse game he
was better. The M. A. C. contest
proved him a reliable man, and yes-
terday's' contest Troved him one of
Michigan's best grid warriors.
Poets 'acke Thiugh
IVy Songs on Snow
The snow lies soft o'er hill and
dell; the footwear men goloshes sell
and say "Oh, joy." The old tobog-
gans out are brought and mittens,
mufflers, too, are bought for girl and
boy. The happy youngster home
from school in snow the kaiser's
phyz does tool, then throws a brick.
The brick is thrown with righteous
zeal, observed by patriots true and
leal, who make no kick as long as
William's head is broke, so much they
hate the ugly bloke, they shout Huz-
za. If mother dear calls Johnny in
and says that roughness is a sin he
says Pooh. Bah.
WANT NEUTRALS TO

Nov. 29.-The German government
has proposed a neutral commission to
be established for the purpose of de-
ciding who will be responsible for
Besrlin, Nov. 29.-Dr. Alfred Zim-
merman, former secretary of foreign
affairs of the Imperial German gov-
ernment, replying to the charges of
the Bavarian premier, that the gov-
ernment at Berlin was responsible for
the war, declared in the Deutsche
Zeitung of Cologne, "We did in fact
consider that it was a crime and
that it was Austria-Hungary's hour of
destiny. We did not urge Austria-
Hungary to action, but especially ad-
vised them against it. The Vienna
ultimatum was considered entirely
too severe by us, but it was comrmu-
nicated to us too late to mitigate it."
Ohio Field, Columbus, O. Nov. 30.-
Michigan's Varsity football eleve:
closed the season of 1918 this after
noon with a clean slate, when it de
feated the Ohio State team by
score of 14-0.
Going into the battle on a slipper
field, the general opinion of the 7,00
spectators present was to the effet
that the game would be without in
terest, yet it developed into one C
the hardest fought games of the yea
The Scarlet and Gray warriors, prim
ed for the tilt with the Yostmen, man
aged to hold them for three quarter,
Goetz Is Star
Goetz, left tackle for the Maize an
Blue, was the undisputed star of th
contest. After blocking a punt is
the fourth quarter, and falling on I
for a touchdown, the clever gridde
was accredited with having won -th
contest for the Wolverines.
Coach Yost was highly pleased wit
the performance of his men, despit
the fact that the score was not a
large as was expected. Wilce, th
coach of the Ohio team, had promie
ed the visitors a tough contest, an
he 'held to his word.
"Today's game is entirely satisfac
tory," was what Coach Yost had t
say after the contest. "Many of th
players showed more than I though
was in them."
Wilce also was satisfied with th
playing of his men, attributing ther
defeat to the superiority of the Maiz
and Blue eleven.
With the very start of the contes
it was a fight that looked like neithe
team would score. Holding to thel
old method of preparing for the bi
contests of the year, and letting th
earlier contests pass as they wil
the Scarlet and Gray team was read
for the Yostmen.
From the beginning of the gam
until the fourth quarter, it looked a
though neither team would score. Th
Buckeyes' line held like a ston
wall, stopping the Michigan back
just in time to avoid a score. Proba
bly Vick, the sturdy Michigan cente
was the only man who could plow
big hole through the Ohio line. Fo
tune, at left guard, also did som
good line work, while Goetz, next t
him at the tackle position, was th
feature of the contest.
Steketee Punts 65 Yards
Steketee ran a close kicking ra(
with Rife, the right half of the Ohi
team, yet the Michigan man prove
the better of the two. A 65 yard pu
in the last quarter of the game, tal
ing the ball to the Buckeyes' five yar
line, brought the spectators to the:
feet in amazement, cheering for ti
Grand Rapids freshman.
