FRATERNITY PHOTOS
Group pictures of all the frater-

which has already been started. This
is only one of several innovations
that are being planned, supported by
the student body and the Board in
Control of student publications.
Each organization will have two
pages in the yearbook, as formerly,
but instead of printing the long lists
of chapters at other inttitutions as
has been done in the past, the right-
hand page will be divided into sec-
tions, the top to be occupied by a cut
of the chapter house, and the lower
portion with a group photograph of
the members. It is thought that this
system will make the volume a more
personal and complete record and at.
the same time improve 'the general
appearance of the Michiganensian.
Notification has been sent all or-
ganizations to have their picture tak-
en as soon as possible. All of the
pictures are expected to be in before
the last-of November. Any .of the lo-
cal photographers authorized by the
Michiganensian to do work for the
book may take the photograph.

Refer to Agreehiut
The government contends that the
miners are working today under the
war time agreement effective until the
end of the war, or until April 1, 1921).
This date was put into the agreement
so th'at a new scale might be agreed
upon in event the war was not over at
that time: The fuel administration
holding the agreement still valid
would be authorized it was said to take
charge of the mines and keep them in
operation.
Refusal of. the miners' organization
to withdraw the strike order was a dis-
tinct surprise to officials who changedt
quickly from a hopeful to a fightingc
attitude. There was no disposition to
to dispute the right of men to strike
but officials were grimly determined
to see that men who do not, strike willt
be protected in and out of the mines
even if that means the pres3nce ofc
troops.r

A wearer of the Congressional Med-
al of Honor, the French Legion of
Honor, two Croix de Guerres, with
palms, besides being one of the 100
men chosen by General Pershing as
typical heroes of the war, is now a
junior in the literary college of the
University. His name is Harold A.
Furlong.
Furlong was a student at M. A. C.
for three years before America enter-
ed the conflict. He was commission-
ed at the first officers' training camp
at Fort Sheridan and went overseas
as a first lieutenant with the 353d 'in-
fantry of the 89th division. He went'
over the top twice and was march-
ing up to the front' line with his'com-
pany the morning that the armistice
was signed.
Took Command In Battle
Furlong is naturally reticent in tell-
ing about his own exploits. Here is
what the Ladies Home Journal says
about him: "There is at least one
home in Detroit where a Detroit sol-
dier is considered a more important
native product than all the automo-
biles ever turned out in that famous
city. Lieutenatn Furlong's company,
like so many others in these cita-
tions, was held up by machine-gun
fire. This was during the attack on
the Bois de Bautheville, Nov. 1, 1918.
The company commander and several

soldiers had been killed when LieuteL-
ant Furlong, with complete coolness
and assurance, moved out in advance
of the line and crossed an open space
several hundred yards wide. Out-
flanking the German machine guns he
closed in on them one at a time, kill-
ing a number of the enemy with his
rifle and putting four nests out of
action. He also drove 20 prisoners
back to the American lines."
Decorated by Pershing
Pershing himself conferred the Con-
-gressional Medal upon the first six
American officers to receive the hon-
or, of whom Furlong was one. When
he was granted this honor by con-
gress, only about 47 of these medals
had been bestowed, and about 30 of
these were given posthumously.
He was decorated with one Croix de
Guerre and the Legion of Honor on
board the Leviathan and Lieut.-Col.
Theodore Roosevelt, Jr., pinned- on
him the other war cross in Detroit.
Furlong came through every one of
the. engagements in which he partic-
ipated without a scratch and says that
he thinks his health is better than
before he entered the service.
Darbaker Treasurer of 1920E Class
James Darbaker, '20E, was elected
-senior engineer treasurer instead of'
James Baker as, annonned.

Statement Issued
The government will act in the
illegality of the strike without in any
way impairing the general right to
strike" as "the general right to strike
is not in issue in 'any sense whatever
in the present situation," it was de'-
clared in a statement tonight after a
conference in the offices of Attorney
General Palmer at which he discuss-
ed the situation with Secretary Wil-
son, Director General Hines, Secertary
Tumulty and Assistant Attorneys Gen-
eral Ames and Garden.
The statement, which it was said
fully represents the attitude of the
government declared that the impend-
ing coal strike "was ordered in a man-
ner for a purpose and with a neces-
sary effect, which taken together, put
it outside the pale of the law."
Thtegovernment will act in the
strike under the provision of the Leder
food control act, enacted as a war
measure but still in force.
Recommend Fixed Price
One decision of the government con-
ference was to recommend to the Pres-
ident the establishment of maximum
prices on coal which prevailed wheA
