Argentine Police Lasso Strikers
(By Associated Press)
Buenos Aires, Jan. 13.-Three strikers and strike agitators were
arrested Sunday here, it was learned from government sources. This
makes the total for the last three days 800, 80 per cent of whom are
Russians. Some of the ring leaders resisted arrest and were lassoed
by police officers and dragged to the police station.
Those arrested included Peord Wald, known as "president of the
Soviet government" and all other officers of the "new republic.'
The prisoners, who are confined in military barracks, boast the
movement will be renewed on May 1, but he government believes
that the arrest of 800 of the ring leaders will end the trouble.

Thedluidin is tobe an excellent
example- throughout of the new "Mich-
igan" style of architecture, developed
at the University and illustrated in
Hil audtitorium and the Natural Sci-
ence bijilding. All floors and stair-
cases ,will be of marble, as will the
entire main hallway. The prominent
feature4 of the interior is the beautiful
and s pacious maNi reading room,
with its impressive circular arch
above . This room is completed ex-
cept for the laying of floors and the
insta 1lation of furniture and lighting,
whic ;i is to be of two sorts: indirect
'fixti !res within the curve of the arch-
ed eiling at either end, and movable
lair ps for diffusing indirect light from
tht tops of the bookcases and direct
lifiht from the reading tables. There
w ill be no hanging lights. Within the
arch on each of the end walls will be
hung two large color paintings, which
were :formerly in University hall.
There are four large reading roams
in addition to the main room, and the
third :and fourth floors contain a num-
ber off rooms for work in humanis-
tics. "The woodwork for these ro-mas
has already been installed.
The bindery, established some weeks
ago in the basement of the new
buil ding, is now in full operation and
comcpletely installed except for some

Professor Henderson at Conference
Prof. Wm. D. Henderson, of the ex-

annual national extension conference
in Chicago. It began yesterday and

The University of Michigan is to
have a complete war record of all-her
men who served during the war. Such
an action was authorized at the De-
cember meeting of the Board of Re-
gents and for the purpose of mak-
ing definite plans for this undertak-
ing the committee in charge will meet
in Detroit Saturday. The members
of the committee are Regents W. L.
Clements, J. O. Murfin, F. B. Leland
and Professors HsL. Senseman, F. N.
Scott and A. L. Cross.
Some of the plans to be considered
are the advisability of making a card
record or a book and if the latter is
chosen whether it should be sold,
given to alumni, or just a few copies
kept on file here. The question of
publishing in book form the Civil War
record for Michigan, which is in card
form now, wi'll also be discussed.
To Send Circulars Again
This work of obtaining military
data on all Michigan graduates and
non-graduates will be carried on
through the Alumni Catalogue office
of which Prof. H. L. Senseman is in
charge. Although one set of circulars
was sent to all alumni, last summer.
it is necessary to repeat the work as
many have died, been transferred, or
promoted since then.
Civil War Record Complete
It was only recently that the Civil
War record was completed due to the
fact that such a roll of honor was
not thought of until several years aft-
er the war. Through state rosters,
circulars sent in '90, '00, '10 and '15
and an endless amount of personal
investigation the list is at last prac-
tically complete.
With the errors of this Civil War
record in mind, it is expected the
record of the recent war will be ac-
complished with comparative rapidi-
ty. The comprehensive circularization
will begin early next summer, and
the honor roll will be finished in ac-
cordance to the time it will take for
all alumni to respond to the circu-

New York, Jan. .13. - New York
Central officials issued a statement
from C. P.' Babcock, flagman on the
southwestern limited, tending to coi-
firm the statement of the Wolverine
limited flagman that he lighted a red
fuse at least 25 car lengths behind
his t/ain.
According to Babcock's statement
be was riding in the rear coach of the
southwestern limited when he felt the
brakes suddenly applied, and he hur-
ried to the rear and got off. The
fusee ,he said, was burning 15 or 20
car lengths behind the last coach.
Walking east he overtook the flag-
man of the Wolverine, and together
they proceeded to the automatic sig-
nal tower, where they placed torpe-
does on the track. Babcock said that
the automatic signal was set at -dan-
ger. He later returned to the twer
with Engineer Fredley and found it
still at danger.
New Advertising
Plan for Alumnus
The Michigan Alumnus, together
with all the alumni magazines of
American universities has entered
a combination through which all
advertising, ,with the exception of
local clients, is operated by the
advertising syndicate of Roy Barn-
hill, Inc., of New York city.
Each publication pays a percentage
of the cost of establishing such an of-
fice and receives 60 per cent of the
net results of the contracts. This plan
has long been anticipated and it is ex-
pected that it will bring better con-
tracts to the magazines and larger re-
sults to the clients.
The different publications receive
contracts in proportion to their cir-
culation, of which the Michigan Alum-
nus has the second largest of the
country.. Professional advertisers Rill
handle the majority of the copy at
the New York offices and also through
the medium of such an office contracts
may be obtained which would be im-
possible for local publications to in-,
The call for tryouts for freshman
basketball was answered by a large

ium last night. Howard Rowley, an

Rowley started the season with the
Varsity but suffered an injury to his
leg etarly in the year and was forced
to drop out.
He will divide the freshmen into
four groups selecting a team from
each group. Two of these teams will
play as a preliminary before both Fri-
day and Saturday's Varsity games.

France to Treat
Alsace Liberally
"A feeling of fearful uncertainty, of
being between fires was typical of
Alsace during the war," said Capt.
Fernan Baldensperger yesterday aft-
ernoon in his lecture on "What I
Saw in Alsace." The French army had
entered Alsace twice, once on the
seventh of August, 1914, and then
again on the 19th after the Germans
had captured it. The first time the
French came they were hailed with
the greatest joy-when they recaptur-
ed the territory from the enemy,
they were cordially received of course,
but the enthusiasm was missing. The
Alsatians were afrait to give away
to their feelings toward the French
because they feared every moment
that the Germans were coming back
to seize their city again.
When Captain Baldensperger visited
the homes he was shown by the in-
habitants how well the Germans had
succeeded in making themselves as
odious as possible. He found also
that it was typical in many families
to see members sharing different sen-
timents-one faction being heart and
soul French while the other was luke-
warm, having received German influ-
ence from their schooling or the po-
sitions they held.
Many Alsatians, however, deserted
the German armies and joined the
French as against a common foe. The
German government kept the strictest
vigilance over all expressions of sym-
pathy for the French and the slight-
est sign that escaped showing feel-
ing for them meant a term of impris-
onment. It is estimated that during
'the war 14,000 years of imprisonment
were handed out.
When Alsace was taken by the
French shortly before the end of the
war the Alsatians found that they had
no goods to make flags from, so they
ripped up their sheets and dyed them
the colors of their flag.
In concluding M. Baldensperger
said that France did not want to im-
pose their laws on Alsace, nor to de-
stroy their traditions. That she look-
ed upon them as children and wished
to take them in but not to strangle

them, to enforce nothing upon them
but to let them take from her just
what they wanted for themselves.
Repairs to Put Jail in Better Shape
Work on repairing the county jail
commenced Monday The old jail,
which has seen more than 35 years
of service, is to be completely fixed
up The repairs are to include new
plumbing and as much else as can be
done for $1,200. The repairs are
expected to put the building in a per-
fectly sanitarya condition and it is
thought by the supervisors that it
wil lanswer its purpose for a few
years more.
Peace Problems Course at Wisconsin
A course in "The Problems of
Peace" consisting of semi-weekly lec-
tures by prominent speakers through-
out the country and abroad will be
given this term at the University of
Wiscns in.
