NEW HANDBOOK TO
TELL CAMPUS LORE
"Will You Do It," is the name of the
handbook which the Union is publish-
ing for the benefit of newcomers to
Michigan. It contains hints to those
who are not sophisticated in the ways
of the campus, as well as a history of
,he Union, its spirit, and purpose. A
short article on the athletic prospects
is an added feature of the booklet.
President Hogan and General Sec-
retary Hurley of the Union, are re-
sponsible for this handbook. The lat-
ter 4tates th9 purpose of it in these
words: "T ere are so many new
students on the campus that they must
have some way of. learning not only
of the school's benefits but of their
duties and obligations to it, and to the
Union,( the one great democratic or-
ganization of the school."
This book is to be a regulai insti-
tution in years to come and will fill
a big want.

Cincinnati, Oct. 1.-Cincinnati, to-
day, won the opening game of the
world series from the Chicago Amer-
icans by a score of 9 to 1.
Every series develops a new idol
for the fans and Walter Ruether who
pitched the Reds to victory was the.
unanimous choice tonight. He not
only held the White Sox to 6 scat-
tered hits, and really deserved a shut
out, but rolled up a batting average
of 1,000 for himself.
Wonder of Battle
If there was anything in the game
that was better than his pitching it
was his work with the stick' Two of
his three hits were mighty triples. He
drove in two runs, scored one him-
self and was the instigator of the
mad romping of Redlegs around the
bases in the fatal fourth. The Sox
were in the fight up to-that time, but
when. Reuther propelled the ball into
left center and romped around to- third
with two scoring ahead of him, the
heart seemed to go out of the Ameri-

Five runs were recorded against him
in the fourth before Manager Gleason
gave him the sign to retire. Hisj

patted him encouragingly on the back
but he walked from the diamond with

the Student cotincil last night to re-
establish the competition method of

Editor, The Michigan Daily:
The Michigan Union, through its stu-
dent rooming s'rvice, has had brought
to its attention numerous complaints
against the landladies concerning high
and unreasonable rent charges for
rooms let by them to students;, for
open violation of contracts, whereby
rooms engaged at one price and pay-
ments made to bind it, were rented
to another at a higher price, or refus-
ed to the student unless a higher price
was paid. Many of these complaints
were made openly, but many more
were brought to us indirectly.- The
committee in charge of the service
desk reports a clearly defined opinion
among the students that profiteering
of a flagrant type is being practiced.
Union Will Determine facts -
Naturally, since the Union has in
charge this very important service,
we are anxious to go to the bottom o
the matter and to determine from act-
ual facts what the situation really is.
The room comAiittee clearly recognize
that increases in room rent are nec-
essary to keep due pace with the in-
creased cost of living, and that some
rooms are vorth more than others,
but 'neither of these facts warrant any
wholesale increases in rents to stu-
To settle this question quickly and
fairly for all parties interested, the
Union room committee request that
every student who feels that he is a
victim of profiteering address a letter
to George F. Hurley, general secretary
of the Michigan Union, and in this let-
ter give the following facts: --
Name and address of landlady and
location of house with respect to the
Construction and size of house.. -,
Size of room or rooms and number
living - in them...
Location of room in the house and
number of windows. -
Furnishings -of room.

or, not there is a telephonie in the
Number of students an other peo-
ple living in house.
Rent paid for room per week.
Rent paid for other rooms in house
if it can be ascertained.
What rent was paid by the sign-
er of the letter for a room during the
-school year 1916-1917 if he was then
Such letters will be treated as con-
fidential and will be used onlyby the
University authorities and the com-
mittees. These letters will be filed in
the order of their .receipt. It is hop-
ed that the letters will be sent to us
It is further desired that all stu-
dents who were in attendance at the
University before the war, inform the
committees as to what rent they paid
for rooms at that time.
The Union joins with The Daily in
desiring an early solution for it.
