Wearers of the Varsity "M" who
died on the field of honor while
fighting the battle of democracy in
France, will be commemorated by a
fitting memorial, to be erected on the
University campus by living members
of the "M" club throughout the Unit-
ed States. Engraved upon the mon-
ument will be the names of the four

Bronze Tablet Favored
Letters sent out by the "M" club to
its members showed that a , majority
of them were in favor of such a pro-
posal. The greater number of the

men favored the dedication of a bronze
tablet which would be placed in the
Ferry field club house. This will be
ready for unveiling Nov. 22 at the
Minnesota game, when a great re-
union of the "M" club and other
Michigan men is to be held.
The four men named above are the
only 'M" men known to have died
in service and requests ;were made for
information regarding the men.
Work to Begin Soon
After a definite decision has been
made concerning the form of the
meiorial, work will start imrnedi-
ately in order that it may be ready
for dedication by the date of the
Minnesota game. The "M" club, which
was organized in 1913, is composedl
of practically all the living letter men
of the University.

the arrangements for the meeting.
Strikers Await Conference
Pittsburg, Sept. 30.-The steel work-
ers' strike ' so far as the Pittsburg
district is concerned drifted along
today without any distict change be-
ing noted. -The strike zone was quiet.
The )anions claim, they are holding
their, men together and are cnstantly
bringing more into their ranks. The
steel companies, on the contrary, say
they are getting ,more workers into
their plants due to the desire of the
men to work and to the police pro-
tectior afforded then.
There is a belief in some quarters
that no break, if any, can be looked
for until after the industrial confer-
egce which opens at Washington.
Tension Inerases at Chicago
Chicago, Sept. 30.-Tension increas-
ed today between the warring forces
and the Chicago district steel strike
area. Both sides claimed gains, but
developments seemed to indicate lit-
tle material change in comparison
with previous days. The big steel
plants continued to operate at about
25 to 30 per cent capacity and no se-
rious violence was reported.

Moran Announces Choice for Initial
Battle of Series; Sox Hurler
Still in Doubt
(By Associated Pres\
Cincinnati, Sept. 30.-At i o'clock
tomorrow afternoon the four umpires
at Redland Park' will wave 'their
hands, the Reds will take their play-
ing positions, Leibold or J. Collins of
the Chicago White Sox will enter the
batter's box and the first of the great
conteLts for baseball's richest prizes
and highest honors will begin.
Manager Moran announced tonight
that Ruether will pitch the first
game for Cincinnati. The White Sox
battery was not announced tonight.
Nothing but weather of the most
unfavorable kind will' delay the start
and when play begins the largest
throng that ever saw a baseball game
in Cincinnati will be _-the'park.
Every seat for the first game 'and'
eveW reserve for the first three games
have been purchased. Cincinnati ho-
tels grogned today under the weight
of base all enthusiasts.
Tomorrow morning the final details
of the seris will be made at the Na-
tional Commission meeting. While
no official announcement has been
made relative to ground rules, it is
believed thg National. league rules
'will apply for the series.
Betting on the series was notice-
able today for its absence. Several
wagers of large amounts were offer-
ed. No' takers were reported. Local
fans are demanding odds. Chicago fans
ask even money.
Both teams worked out at Redland
field today, the Reds taking a turn in
the morning and then allowing the
Sox to figure. on the angles of the
"So well is the rooming situation in.
hand, we could provide lodging for
,a couple of hundred students, should
that numiber enroll tomorrow," said
George Hurley, general secretary of
the Union, Tuesday. "We have enough
rooms to take care of everybody, 'al-
though their location from the cam-
pus is not all that could be desid-
ed," he said.
The housing committee of which
Robert F. Grindley, '21E, is chair-
man of the room assignment divi-
sion, and Howard Collins, '20E; of the
room canvassing side, is still at work
to provide for any changes where stu-
dents may desire to shift from tem-
porary, to prmanent lodgings. Ac-
cording to Collins, rooms are still be-
ing reported and listed to tage care
of any overflow.
The newly created housing com-
mission, which in all probability will
'be a combination of the present com-
mittees, will be announced within a
short time.
In order to reduce to a minimum
next year the work of lodging stu-
dents, the comiission will hav can-
vassed the city for availabe rooms,
cataloged and indexed these, and
have 'divided the city into rooming
zones. A study will be made in the
hope of standardizing student room-
ing conditions.

"Concerning the selection of a cheer
leader, I am very much in favor of the
old competitive system," said Philip
Bartelme, Director of Outdoor Ath-
letics, when questioned Tuesday. "I
believe that the Student council
should take care of the selecting," he
"For the last two years Michigan
has had- no reular man to lead its
yells,- while in the past the cheer
leader was one of the big men on
the campus. The Student council
used to furnish one and I think it is
up to them now."
Others than Bartelme have voiced
the same opinion, especially thoe
who recall "Hal" 'Smith and "Bob"
Bennett and their antics before the
stands. With the approach of the
football season and its attendant need
of organized cheering, it is hoped that
the council will take definite action
concerning the selection of a cheer
leader at their meeting Wednesday
Besides being one of the best var-
sity cheer leaders, Smith was captain
of the track team, and the suggestion
has been made that this year's track
leader automatically be made cheer
leader as well. Other suggestions
have been made and it is hoped that
the council will act favorably upon
one of these. in order that a leader
may be picked shortly.
That the suggestion of-a University
chapter of the American Iegion is
illogical is the opinon of Lieut.-Col
John P. Lucas, professor of military
science. "Since students joining the
proposed University chapter would
transfer to their home organization,
the effect would be to produce but a
'temporary society within the Uni-
versity," he said.
All Service Men Should For
Colonel' Lucas believes that every
student who 'has been in service as a
soldieri, sailor, or marine should af-
filiate himself with the local post,
for which application blanks may be
obtained from him in room 239, en-
gineering building.' \iembers of the
S. A. T. C. and naval unit are eligible
for membership,

Washington, Sept. 30. - President
Wilson whose illness t ok a turn for
the better yesterday continued to im-
prove today under the rest cure pre-

scribed by his physician.
After the first good night's rest he
had had since he was taken ill, the'
President was up most of the day and
was permitted' by Dr. Grayson to give
his attention for a short while to press-
ing executive matters.
Dr..Grayson would make no prodic-
tions saying wvhether the President
would be able to take any part in the
labor and industrial conference which
meets here next Monday.
At the meeting of the Union com-
mittee held Tuesday night the various
books for the opera were well discuss-
ed. All of those submitted were of
such a high standard that the commit-
tee was unable to decide upon any
one. It is hoped, however, that they
will soon be able to pick the one best
suited to Michigan's need.
