NWMN'S VOTES TO MIKE
CHANGE IN ELECTIONS
POLITICIANS XNABLE TO DOPE
OUT COMING ELECTION
OUTCOME
(By Associated Press)
Jackson, Dec. 16.-The eltion au-
horities of this and, it is understood,
ther cities of Michigan, are already
vondering just how the big increase
1 the vote, due to the voting of womr-
M next spring, will affect the already
rowded- election machinery. There
as already been some discussion
long this line in many of the state's
ewspapers.
It has been suggested, that the
chools and churches be used as vot-
ng places for women.bThe law pro-
ides for the creation of a new pre-
inct where a voting district has 600
r imore registered voters. Many city
lection boards are already taking ac-
on to create new voting precincts
nd the city of Detroit has rebounded
s wards.
Women for Election Boards
It is also anticipated that now that
hey have full and equal suffrage with
ie men, the women will demand
laces on the registration and ele-
on boards, which, it is declared, will
i some measure'serve to disrupt the
ld time political machinery. 4 The
rofessional politicians are wonder-
kg, it is reported from some points,
ist what "it will all mean to them."
Is an Important Election
The election next spring is believ-
i by the politicians to be destined to
e one of the most important Michi-
an has ever held, not because there
re any unusually important issues to
Ome before the voters but because
the fact that women will vote, then,
r the first time.
Two justices of the supreme court,
wo members of the board of agri-
ulture, two regents of the Univer-
ty and a superintendent of public
struction are to be elected.
It is anticipated two constitutional
nendments, the beer and high wine
id one proposing the abolition of
trochial schools, will also be vot-'

VILLA PLANS BIG
"DEMONSTRATION"
(By Associated Press)
Washington, Dec. 16.-Information
has reached the American govern-
ment that Pancho Villa, the Mexican
revolutionist, is planning a "proposed
demonstration" in northern Mexico
with a view of what will be the atti-
tude of the American government to-
ward a renewal of his operations.
Officials of the state department
would not say whether there was any
information of the "proposed demon-
stration" but it was understood that
Villa plans to attack Chihuahua city
or some other important town near
the American border. Government of-
ficials have information that Villa al-
ready has collected a large part of
the following which he had before
General Pershing's expeditionary
forcewent into Mexico in 1916 after
Villa's attack on Columbus, N. M.
There was no indication, however,
as to what the attitude of the gov-
ernment would be should Villa renew1
his operations in Mexico.
EXTRA COURSES TO
AID LAW STUDENTS
.~Law students will be -able to
fully make up work they have missed
while in the service, as the result of
action taken by the University Law
school faculty in creating a new se-
mester plan for the school.
The school year will run through
continuously until Sept. 1, the first
semester courses being repeated dur-
ing the second semester, which be-
gins Feb. 17, with the regular second
semester courses being run at the
same time. During the summer an-
other series of second semester cours-
es will be given. This will allow men
who have completed their first semes-
ter's work to continue through the
second semester without being hin-
dered by men who were absent dur-
ing the early part of the year. And
those men who did not do the first
semester's work may take it up dur-
ing the latter part of the year.
The law faculty will have double
its ordinary work to do in putting
on these additional courses, but the
professors have said that this will be
part of their patriotic work and they
are pleased to help out the men who
left for service. This is probably the
most radical change that has been
made in the curricula of any college
of the University.

Chicago, Dec. 16.-Large employers
will make an effort to keep up the
present standard of wages, according,
to Harry A. Wheeler, president of the
United States chamber of commerce,
who returned to Chicago' last night
after sounding out sentiments of large
employers in the east.
He said that reductions may come
but not before the cost of living de-
creases so that relatively there will
be no change.
Mr. Wheeler said he found organ-
ized labor opposed to Bolshevism and
does not believe that the "red ter-
ror" will gain headway in this coun-
try.

WSHAT"S GOING ON

Will Take Timej
"We will, of course, not be able to
place every man immediately upon his
return. We will urge them to rest
for two weeks or a month before re-
suming work and in the meantime
find them a place to work.
"The biggest thing we have to do
is to keep new men from coming to
Detroit to work. It will be some
time before Detroit's industries will
be on the footing which they were
before the war. Nearly all of De-
troit's industries were engaged whol-
ly or partially in war work. To put
such plants on a peace basis will re-
quire months. The new machinery
which they will need must be manu-
factured and the government restric-
tions on use of iron are not off until
January."

New York, Dec. 16.-Demands for

Saturday. They also adopted a pro-
gram calling for compulsory educa-
tion of children up to 16 years of

passed resolutions demanding an
eight hour day and a 44 hour week,
abolition of child labor, no night work
for women, and equal pay for equal
work. Insurance against sickness,
accident, and unemployment as well
as invalid and old age pensions were

Meetings are ordinarily held at the
Hostess house, but this is temporarily

given, Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus tak-
ing part. They entered with packs
on their backs and distributed gifts
among the members. A story, "Christ-
mas Day in the Morning," which was:
read by one of those present, proved
very interesting and enjoyable. Lat-
er in the evening a business meeting
was held.
