Varsity Cheer Leaders to Conduct
Yells at Barbecue on Friday
In Detroit
From indications Wednesday, there
is great campus interest in the bar-
becue which the University of Michi-
gan club of Detroit is giving at 8
o'clock Friday at the Elks' temple In
that city. Already many have signi-
fled their intention of going into De-
troit for the affair. The fact that
cheer leaders, Alfred Cuthbert, '20E,
and Harry Sparks, '20E,will' conduct
the cheering indcates that footballi
pep will be thoroughly aroused.
With Coaches Yost and Brewer on
hand to speak concerning their re-
spective teams, much interest is ex-
pected to be aroused in the coming
M. A. C. game. The promised appear-
ance of Ring Lardner is also a big
feature of the evening's entertain-
Particular emphasis is 'being laid
by the committee in charge upon the
fact that discussion of events vitalto
the interest of every man on the cam-
pus will be a part of te, program.
Campus represetation is being earn-
estly sought in order that the alumni
may be brought into closer contact
with the present student body.
Tickets for the barbecue may be
obtained' from Carl Johnson, '20, or
James McClintock, '21L.
"A city editor on a small town news-
paper," is the reference 6ften made to
William Allen White, who will lee-
lure at 8 o'clock Friday night in Hi'
auditorium on "What a Reporter Saw
at the Peace Conference."
Shortly after his graduation from
the University of Kansas, Mr. White
entered the newspaper game with
the El Dorado Republican, going later
to the Kansas City Star. As a re-
porter with this paper the story is told
that an article "Millions in Hogs,"
written at an opportune moment' in
the history of the packing industry,
alone saved him from discharge.

The committee was directed to have
a rep'ort ready tomorrow but it struck
a snag late in the day in attemptingf
to define collective bargaining and
made but little headway.
The ,right of employees to organize
as generally recognized it was said but
no agreement could be reached on the,
question of dealing with non-employ-
ees of the company acting as spokes-
men for the employees. The commit-
tee will meet tomorrow morning but
it appears that it will ask for more
time. Such action would mean a
further delay in obtaining a vote oni

May Drop Proposal
Labor delegates said today that they
would be willing to drop the steel
strike resolution in case they can ob-
tain a clean cut acceptance of the
principals of collective bargaining
with the right of employees to select
representatives "just as the compan-
ies hire council." Failure of the con-
ference to arbitrate the strike or to
accept their view of collective bargain-
ing would mean disruption of the can-
ference, some labor represeatatives
went so far as to say.
Final returns show that Michigan
contributed $509.41 for her first me-
morial to those students who have
died in service. A sinking fund of
approximately '$100 is now assured to
provide for upkeep and flags for some
years to come.

Men and Women of Michigan:-
I, the spirit of one of Michigan's
honored dead, take this occasion to
thank you for the consideration you
have shown, in the proposed flagpole
to commemorate the men of Michigan
who died in the past war. A $500
flagpole, represents a contribution of
five-and-five-tenths cents from each
and every student; truly a magnifi-
cent offering, and after all, a fine in-
dex to the keen appreciation of the
sacrifices made by Michigan's dead.
To be perfectly frank with you, I
had hoped for, ot a too costly, but
a beautiful gateway,,placed at the
State street end of the diagonal walk;
'but of course we spirits can't expect
to get everything. . Some of us al-
ready have for a monument the poppy,
'fields of Flanders, some the chalk of
Picardy, and the more fortunate, if
'spirits may be said to be fortunate,
sleep in the shade .of the Argonne.
Understand, I am not kicking on
the flagpole, but put yourself in my
place. The student body pays tribute
to your memory on Saturday after-
nons during a two months' footballj
season and, theoretically, during a

baseball season of the same duration.
although then the band merely pass-
es the football field and site of the
proposed flagpole in order to get to
the baseball diamond. In the mean
time, a few scattered track meets are
thrown in out of sheer generosity.
How fortunate it will be that the stu-
dents thus will be able to kill two
birds with one stone, as it were. They
may do their commemorating be-
twen halves or innings, when action
on the field is absent. How would you
Now, a gateway would be working
as a memorial seven days in the
week, every week in the year, and
even more or less at night. In addi-
tion, it is lasting, beautifying and is
something that the campus has need-
ed as long as the University has ex-
isted. I know that .the architectural
department would be only too glad to
contribute the design. The difficuly
would be in expecting the student
body to contribute up' to a half, dol-
lar apiece. Fifty cents' worth of com-
memoration would probably strain
the bonds of friendship and loyalty
to the breaking point.
