men out next year, and this is the
only way to get them."

"emergency Smoker" Challenge
Of Detroit Alumni To Defeat

(By Lee M. Woodruff)
Michigan alumni are the breed of
men who take defeat as a spur and
not as an opiate.
Only Saturday the famous jug pass-
ed to Gopherland, and the most dis-
astrous season in all Michigan's grid-
iron hist6ry was a thing of the past,
a thing for bitter reflection, for tears,
almost for crepe.
But the alumni, with one mighty
voice, have decided to omit flowers.
With a loyalty that would do .great.
credit to any body of students ever on
the campus, they refuse to believe
there is any corpse.
{ Set for Saturday
And here's the proof of the resi-,
liency of Michigan spirit. Next Sat-
urday, Nov. 29-exactly one week aft-
er the catastrophe-1,500 alumni 'of
Detroit are going to gather in a gen-
uine comeback roof-raising pep meet-
ing-"emergency smoker," it's called
in the announcement-at the Detroit
Board of Commerce.

Johnson, '20, president of the Student'
council and mnember of the, committee
in charge of the services, yesterday.

cause o his broad experience in col-
lege and university work, he is emi-
nently fitted to talk to the students
nd townsp ople of Ann Arbor."
Glee Club to appear
Music for the Thanksgiving programA

go initiation into Triangles, honorary
junior Engineering society.

StudentsCouneil Not to Meet
There will be no meeting of the Stu-
dent council this week. Pres. Carl
E. Johnson, '20, has called the meet-
ing off for this week, but it will be
held at the regular time next week.

speak; and the slokan of the evening
is going to be "anyone can cheer vic-
tors, but it takes Michigan men to
cher losers"-with another motto for
good measure, "Michigan men may be
a little blue, but they are not yel-
low." The Varsity team, the Varsity
band, the Varsity cheer-leader, and the
Varsity quartet are going to journey
down from Ann Arbor.
1,506 Expected
Coach Yost and his assistants, Di-
rector Bartelme, and Trainer May will
grace the occasion in person. And the
1,500 alumni expet to be backed up
by no less than '00 Mhligan stu-
dents, for the benefit of whom two spe-
cial cars will leave Ann Arbor for De-
troit via the D. U. R. at 3:10 Satur-
day afternoon.' 0
Dinner will be served at 6 o'clock
to all University men, grads and un-
dergrads. The smoker will begin at
8 o'clock. Tickets may be procured

Alumni an Example
As one prominent Michigan man de-
clared, "Detroit alumni are showing
by this indomitable. 'exhibition of loy-
alty in defeat the highest form of
Michigan spirit. The campus can best
show its, admiration by coming up to
the standards -the alumni have set,
and climbing aboard those specials
Saturday afternoon." ,
Murphy Chairman
Frank Murphy, pep-concocter ex-
traordinary, and speaker ot the mass
meeting of Friday night, is' general
chairman of the affair. -He wanits the
support of every loyal Michigap man;
and with a program and "cast" such
as he has brought-together, the smok-
er promises-to be an event well worth
the voyage to the state's metrdpolls.'
Presideit Harry B. Hutchins, whose
new title as head 'of the American
University Union in Europe is not
president, as announced Sunday, but
chairman of the governing board of
trustees, says that the 'future plans
for continuance of the Union have not
yet been fully drawn up, but will be
formulated at a meeting' of the' trus-
tees Dec. 6-
Previous to his appointment, Pres-
ident Hutchins had held the position
of vice-chairman on the governing
board. He will succeed in his new
office Anson Phelps Stokes, of Yale,
the retiring chairman.
"We have not as yet held a meet-
ing," said President Hutchins Tues-
dy, "and consequently I can give no
prophecy as yet of the future work
which the American University Union
will do under the changed conditions of
peace. The active program will be
Sformulated, however, at the, coming
session of the body of trustees, and
the nature'of the functions which the
Union will perform will probably be
announced at that4ime. .
From the fact that Prof. Charles
Vitibert of the University 6f Michigan
has been appointed to head the con-
tinental division headquarters in Par,
is, it is evident that a continuance of
the European work of the Union, un-
der new directiop, is one of the Ac-
cepted features of the reorganization
hinted at in Vunday's dispatch.
