SANTA CLAUS FOR KIDS
CHILDREN TO HAVE REGULAR
HOLIDAY FESTIVITIES
THIS YEAR
Goodfellowship plans for bringing
Christmas to Ann Arbor children are
in full swing. Several more children
have been provided for, making a total
of 17 kiddies to have their Christmas
stockings filled. Sororities and 'dorm-
itories are doing their part, and it is
up to the league house girls to show
their good will by providing dolls
without which no little girl's Christ-
mas is quite complete.
Dolls to be dressed may be procured
at Barbour gymnasium, or girls can
buy dolls and dress them, or they can
give money for this purpose. Any
girl who can imagine what a dreary
day Christmas is without a dolly will
have no trouble in denying herself
a few sodas and making a little girl
happy.
Three league houses, at least, are
spreading Christmas cheer. The hous-
es at 1020 South University, 1331
Washtenaw, and 745 East University
avenues are uniting to dress a little
girl. Newberry residence is taking
two children to dress, and Alpha Chi
Omega, one. Alumnae house is pro-
viding for a whole family. The Col-
legiate Sorosis is going to supply all
the children at the University hospit-
al with stockings and toques. Pi Beta
Phi is giving a party Thursday after-
noon for all children at the Univer-
sity hospital who are well enough to,

Sirens "Let Go"
y liritish Fleet
London.-A vast chorus of siren
whistles from a thousand fighting
ships split the air when the British
Grand Fleet received the news of the
signing of the armistice. First the
30-mile line of vessels sprang into
light. Then, suddenly, the great fleet
of battleships, cruisers, torpedo de-
stroyers, mine-layers and patrols unit-
ed in one huge, synchronized diapson
that startled the hearers for a radius
of a hundred miles. The tremendous
sound re-echoed amongst the hills on
both shores, awesome in its inten-
sity.
A hundred searchlights, which for
four years had resolutely watched the
skies, or peered steadfastly along dark
waters for enemy craft, merrily criss-
crossed about the sky. Flares were
lit, star shells fired, and here and
there some ofsthergreater ships were
fortunate in a fireworks display.
For 60 minutes the fleet threw off
all reserve and let itself go. At 9
o'clock the sirens suddenly silenced,
the lights snapped out and the Grand
Fleet was again waiting and watch-
ing and ready, and scarcely had the
last sounds died away than from the
Admiral's ships there were winking
at the masthead the orders Cor fur-
ther duty.

STUDENTS! NOTICE!

PURE LINEN HANDKERCHIEFS

Every male student in the
University, civilian as well as
military, is required to re-enroll
with the secretary of his school or
college immediately. Civilian stu-
dents should re-register at once,
S. A. T. C. men as soon as dis-
charged, naval unit men as soon
as released. Discharge and re-
lease papers should be brought
and exhibited.
This is needed because the
demobilization of the S. A. T. C.
and the releasing of the naval
unit men necessitates a change
in status and address and a set-
tlement of fees among most of
the men students.

SIX KILLED BY EXPLOSION ON
CRUISER BROOKLYN IN JAPAN,
Washington, Dec. 12. -Six men of
the crew of the armored cruiser
Brooklyn were killed and 30 others
Injured, some seriously, in an explo-
sion of coal dust aboard the vessel
last Monday at Yokohoma, Japan,
where she was (coaling. The navy de-
partment was st informed today in a
dispatch from the commanding officer
of the Asiatic fleet of which the
Brooklyn was flagship.
The Brooklyn has been stationed at
Vladivostok since the American Ex-
peditionary Force landed there after
decision was reached to have a joint
expedition into Siberia partcipated in
by the associated nations. She was
the flagship of rear Admiral Schley
in the battle of Santiago in 1898, and
was one of the most famous ships in
the navy.

"I like to play for students," said
Serge Sergievitch Prokofieff, Russian
pianist and composer, yesterday aft-
ernoon. "I played often for the Uni-
versity of Petrograd and they were al-
ways the most responsive and sympa-
thetic of my audiences."
Prokofieff's work is mostly creative
and he is among those men who are
not satisfied with the old and seek
self-expression along the niew inde-
pendent of adverse criticism, though
he has been received with great ei -
thusiasm by New York critics, he is
returning to Chicago now to complete
arrangements with Campanini, direc-
tor-general of the Chicago Opera com-
pany for whom he is to compose an
opera and libretto. The plot involves
several sketches taken from Carlo
Gozzi..1"
Prokofieff came to this country by
way of Siberia. It took 16 days to go
from Moscow to Vladivostok and his
was the next last train to cross the
border. The Bolshevik were in abso-
lute power and there were conse-
quently no counter revolutions and no
opposition. He was fortunate to get
a pass, but though the Bolshevik hate
the nobles and the wealthy they seem
to treat artists with respect because
they believe they serve the masses
through their art and so educate them.
