FUNDI FOR FLA POLE
SUIV MAKES POSSIBLE ERECTION
OF INSCRIBED BRONZE
Michigan's memorial to her hero
dead is truly a reality as concerns the
financial end of the campaign, accord-'
ing to Le Grand A. Gaines, Jr., '20,
chairman of the memorial fund com-
mittee. Adding to thealready substan-
tial contributions which the various
fraternities, solicited at dinner Tues-
day evening, had made, the amount
taken in following the Traditionsday
pep meeting Tuesday night totaled up
Sto $400, approximately. This is but a
rough approximation, inasmuch as all
returns had not been made when this
paper went to press.
Tablet Made Possible
With the generous offering is made
possible the realization of a bronze
tablet suitably inscribed to be placed
at the foot of the pole, but the cam-
paign will be continued throughout
Wednesday to swell the fund suffi-
ciently to provide for flags and up-
keep for several years.
The new flag pole with its two flags
will be formally dedicated at the M.
A. C. game Saturday. Efforts are be-
ing made to have President Harry B.
Hutchins pull the cords which will

The 65 foot steel pole which has
been secured is expected to reach
Ann Arbor Wednesday afternoon and
the two flags, an American, measuring
8 by 12 feet, and a Michigan banner,
8 by 10, will arrive shortly thereaft -
Already the buildings and grounds de-
partment have dug the hole on Fer-
ry field and concrete is being laid
ready for the insertion of the pole.
Two coats of paint have already been
given the pole and the necessary third
coat will be applied some time before
Saturday so that the flags can be fit-
tingly raised and presented before the
game starts. The site decided upon
for the pole is at the east end of the
field, about 20 feet in front of the

Copenhagen, Oct. 14.-"The Ger-
nians are attacking Riga with poisoned
gas and also bombarding the town
with trench motors," said a Lettish
foreign office communication Monday.
"Great damage has been done to
quays and the harbor," a communi-
cation adds and "there have been
many civilian casualties.
London, Oct. 14.-The Letts, are de-
fending their positions at Riga against
the invaders splendidly while the
Esthonian governmen't has rushed
every -available armored car to their
assistance, according to official re-
ports received here.
Considerable bitterness is displayed
by newspapers in E'sthonia in regard
to the allies' policy, asserting that
the German forces in the Baltic had
been deefated last July and that the
campaign wold have been carried to
a victorious completion if the allies
had ont insisted upon an armistice.
The labor organ, Wabama, declai'es
that the menace to Letvia threatens
the future peace of all Europe.
War Service ook
Ready At Union
The War Registration book was put
on the Union desk at 4:15 o'clock yes-
terday afternoon, ready to receive the
names of any University men who saw
service. Every one is asked to regis-
ter immediately in order' that an ac-
curate list of the service men may be
compiled so that reunion and get-to-
gethers of units may start.
Expect 100 Pages of Names
Each student is asked to give his
rank, name, Ann Arbor address, class'
in the University, phone, home town,
unit and place of service, and any ci-
tations that he received. The book
has been specially ruled for this data
and those in charge say that they ex-

ANTI - STRIKE BILL
(By Associated Press)
Washington, Oct. 14.-Inclusion in
the prominent railroad legislation of a
provision to penalize strikes of rail-
road employees was decided upon late
today by the interstate commerce com-
mittee by a vote of 14 to 1.
The committee did not enter into the
details of anti-strike legislation the
vote being merely on the question of
adopting the principal of penalizing
railroad employees for striking. Sen-
ator Stanley, Democrat, of Kentucky,
passed the only opposing vote.
The committee's vote was regarded
as making certain inclusion in the
final bill of an anti-strike clause some-
what similar to the clause of the Cum-
mins bill proposing fines and imprison-
ment for concerted action o'f employ-
ees interfering with interstate com-
