Kenmore,0., Oct. 23. - larence
Roeser, '19, and Harold Makinson,
'1911, who were managing editor and
business manager, respectively, of
The Daily last year, have completed
the purchase of the Kenmore Herald.
This paper is the only one in the
town, which presents a 'lucrative field
'or journalistic endeavor. In addition
to publishing the Herald, the partner-
:hip will also do 'ob printing..
The men, who have showed unusual
ability in the newspaper business, be-
came associated while on The Daily,
and decided to enter business togeth-
er this summer. Roeser had several
offers fromr large metropolitan papers
but as he preferred to engage in busi-
ness for himself, he began negotia
ions to buy a paper with Makinson.


Money taken in by fraterni-
ties, sororities, and house clubs
for the Roosevelt Memorial fund
should be turned over to the
committee at room 306, Minhi-,
gan Union, between 3 and 5
o'clck Friday afternoon.

Strickland Gillian, considered Am-
erica's greatest humorist, is the latest
addition to the program being- held
thisyear under the auspices of the
Oratorical association. He will speak
March 6 inHill auditorium.
Owing to conflict of dates, it will be
impossible for E1ihu Root and Herbert
Hoover to lecture, as was previously
.nnounced. The contract for Mr.
Gillian's speech has just been signed
by Prof. W. R. Trueblood, who con-
siders the University very fortunate
in being able to induce him to appear.
Known By His Works
Vr. Gilhan is perhaps btter known
by his works: "Off Agin, On Agin,
Gne Agin, Finnegin," "Me an' Pap an'
Mother,'- "She Felt of Her Belt at the
Back," than by name.' In additipn to
these masterpieces of humor he is the
author of the books, "Sunshine and
Awkwardness," and 'A Sample Case of
In speaking of the program which
'he has arranged for the coming year,
Professor Trueblood said, "It is .my
purpose to have students realize the
Invaluable good and the great asset
which it gives one to say, 'I have heard
William Howard Taft, Stri kTand Gil-
ian, and other notables' I appeal ,to
the students to turn out en masse to
hear these lectures of the Oratorical
association. In my opinion this en-
tertainment is as great as the May
Festical and other events of the year."
Others on Program
In addition to Strickgnd Gillian the
program will-consist of Lt. Coningsby
Dawson, Nov. 5; Sir Arthur Witten
Brown,-Nov. 15; V. Stefanson, Jan. 10;
William Howard TIaft, Jan. 17; Steph-
en Leacock, Jan. 19; Alexander WatA
son, Feb. 17.
Lt. Conngsby Dawson, who is the
fl'st speaker, is a veteran of the World
War, having served with distinction
with the Canadian forces in Flanders.
He is probably one of the most pop+°
ular authors of the war. Dawson is
the author of"Carry On," "The Glory
of the Trenches,"'"Out Wo Win," and
many other popular books.

Friday will conclude the All-campus campaign fo- for the
Roosevelt memorial. The desks which were on the walks -s r'lay
will be in the same places all day today with a large forc^ of men to
see that everyone contributes to the great Americrn's namori al.
The stations on the campus took in about $200 rc-m the students,
yesterday. It was the first day andmany of the men had no notice
that they would be asked to give.
' In the afternoon at a meeting of representatives frc all the fra-
ternities and sororities, the campaign was exlapined, each rcpresenta-
tive being instructed to call an assembly of the students in his house
for the purpose of getting all their contributions at the amie time.
The publication of names of those who contribute the most 's bein .on-
sidered. The money 'ontributed by each fraternity and :sorority is t>
be taken this afternoon to room 306 in the Union.
Last Chunce Today
Today is the last time the studints will have a chance to gim to
the fund as the desire is to make the whole campaign short and snap-
py. Pierce McLouth, '20E, chairman' of the committee handling th .a
drive, stated last night that he expected the University's quota to b-3
-filled without trouble. "The students all seem to take advantage of th:
opportunity to show their appreciation of the late ex-Pres" ,nt and
are giving freely," said McLouth.
The campaign Will begin actively todayin the city d county. Al-
though no house to house canvassing will be done. iP is expected that
everybody will give their bit toward a worthy memorial. Preliminary
reports have come in and show that the fund is going to be subscrib-
ed without difficulty. The local committees in the towns and villages;
report good progress and the schools have all had a goal showing by
the students.
Everybody to Contribute
The purpose of the county committee is to make the drive one for
all the people and to give everybody a chance to contribute his share.
All the banks of the city are open to subscribers and they are al-
ready taking in good sized amounts with the campaign not officially
opened in this county.
The merchants have b'een requested to put pictures of Roosevelt
in their windows and push the drive by talking of it to their patrons
and friends.
The campaign in the county will continue until Monday night.

The course which the public dele-
gates would pursue' was not clear
tonight. After spending more than
four hours in executive session the
major portion of which was devoted
to discussion of various' interpreta-
tions of Mr. Wilson's message, the
public conferees were not in agree-
ment as to the president's intentions
'and were still undecided whether they
should merely make recommendation
as to the organization of a new con-
ference or should undertake the mis-
sion of the original body.
Public Formulate Plans
In official circles it was said that
the latter course was the one the
president had in mind and hope was
expressed that the public delegates,
which in reality in themselves repre-
sent all three groups, would be able
to formulate a program acceptable to
both capital and labor.
The following senior archite'cts of-
ficers were elected Thursday: presi-
dent, H. Schmitz; vice-president,
