Already definite results are being
produced by the, campaign that has
been launched Jointly by the Union
and The Daily against the profiteer-
ing landlady as indicated by the drop
in rent of many of the rooms that are
on file at the Union, andit is expect-
ed that the force of public opinion
that has been created by the efforts
of the two organizations will force
many more of thetrooming house mis-
tresses to bring the rent of their
rooms within the reach of the aver-
age student.
' Prices Readjusted k
Since the opening of the cam-
paign many people, who have rooms
to rent have come to the Union for
the purpose of ascertaining from Mr.
Hurley what was a 'air charge to
make, and since he is well informed
on both the students and the landla-

been, a readjustment of prices that

Helena, Ark., Oct. 2.-With federal'
troops controlling the village of Elaine
detachlnents on duty at Melwood and
other cities of population in the south
part of Phillips county and a company
of soldiers stationed in Helena as a
precautioary measure, the situation
due to race rioting in the vicinity of

killing of 0. R. Lilly a member of the
board of aldermen of this city, was
believed to be well in hand tonight.
The killing of Mr. LillyJwho was
shot to death by one of four negroes
who had lbeen taken prisoner and
whom he was guarding in an automo-

of- a soldier who was shot today in-

Frew Answer Call
For Yell-Ataster

Over-optimism combined with a gross misconception of Michi-
gan's present situation seems the sole excuse for the undersized
squad out of which Coach Yost is expected to make a champion-
ship team.
Spring forecasts showed prospects of an unbeatable eleven
but those prospects have failed to materialize. For various reas-
ons at least 14 of Yost's best men are unable to participate. Out of
52 gridiron men who yere counted on last spring, 20 are now work-
ing on Ferry field.
The coach has stated that spring paper prospects cannot win
fall games. When the campus realizes this fact and furnishes a
representative amount of football material Michigan's chances will
again approach the - championship variety.'
At the .first Ohio State practice 50 men reported, out of which 21
were letter men. Other Big Ten competitors are turning in similar
statistics. At the end of three weeks Michigan boasts a squad av-
ering around 35. The largest enrollment the University has ever wit-
nessed not only falls hopelessly below the post-war mark set by
rival institutions but furnishes one of the smallest aggregations
which Michigan itself has ever knowif.
This negilgence on the part of the campus has not escaped no-.
tice of the men who in uniform are doing double duty to make a
team possible. They want spectators at practices and they need the
' stimulus of cheers, but what they want most keenly and have a
right to expect is support on the field-men who will sacrifice their
afternoon leisure to stop live opponents in actual games.
"Let every man who knows an athlete who is not out, make it
his 'business to get that player out. Likewise let every athlete who
is hidden -among the four or five thousand eligible men, forget the
comforts of that motor car or that comfortable chair and report to
the club house." These are the remedies advocated: by Coach Yost
which suggest a duty to every real Michigan man.
Our season starts tomorrow. It is not too late. If you cannot
play yourmelf, find a man who can and see that he gets out!
"Wher don't I go out for football?" Have you ever asked your-
self that question? Many will find it hard to answer. Michigan
needs just that many!

Qo-operation Arranged
,Mr. Booth at once put it into the
hands of the journalism department
to arrange to make the Times-News
a real seminary in practical newspa-
per study.
"Michigan, in possssing this prac-
tical field for extending the experi-
ence of its students of journalism is
securing a great advantage over
other journalistic schools of the coun-
try," said Professor Brumm Tpurs-
day. It was the opinion of both
'Professor -'Brumm and Professor
Scott that the most difficult problem
in the teaching of newspaper pro-
ficiency was the 'lack of combination
of practice and theory. This need in
great measure will be filled through
the offer of the Times-News.
Good Work a Reqluirement
Students will be required, of course,
to qualify by good work in the jour-
nalism classes for the more advanc-
ed part of the work on the Times-
News. However, every student in the
newspaper courses will be able to.
secure some of the practical train-
ing offered. The present 'planof the
\department calls for a beginning to
be made within a few days in the form
of a cloumn to be supplied from the
work of the -classes of journalism.
This will include assignments to
stories of actual news value, which
will be carefully edited and criticised
before printing.
Assignmunts to Be Given
As time goes on, students will be
given actal assignments phoned in
from the newspaper office, ana will
be graded on the way they satisfy the
requirements -of a real newspaper in
covering the story.
Prof. Brumm also intends to bring
editorial Awriting 'into the work in
such a way as to make it a genuine
research study, with a view to bring-
ing the importance of editorial influ-
ence before the future journalists.

While enrollrmtont in the lit. college

Le total registration in the lit college
will be 4,100, over 4,050 .of whom are
already enrolled. There is a possi-
bility that this total will be slightly
swelled Monday, when any who may
have remained over the extra week
should register.
The engineering college is holding
its own, and will show a total reg-
istration of 500 more than in 1916,47.
The gain there is proportionally right,
the lit college having twice as many
students as the engineeriig, and show-
ing a gain of about 1,000.
'Excess in All Collegies
- All schools and colleges in the Uni-
versity show enrollments in excess of
former years. In the Medical school
freshman enrollments have been clos-
ed, there being 148 registrations, all
which can be taken care of:.
The Saturday classes, held in De-
troit, and attended largely by teach-
ers who are, however, enrolled in the
University, will likewise tend to swell
the total registration, but it is unlike

Washington, Oct. 2.-At last reach-
ing the state of action in considera-
tion of the peace treaty, the Senate
swept aside in quick succession, to-
day, 36 of the A5 amendments which
have been written into the document
by the foreign relations committee.
Of the -nine amendments yet to be
acted upon, six relate to the Cham-
paign section, two propose to equal-
ize voting power in the league of
nations and one would limit Ameri-
can representation on' the reparation
committee. In the abseice of a defi-
nite agreement for disposition for
these proposals senate leaders tonight

More men are needed to try-out as
Varsity cheer leaders. Although the
committee in charge of picking cheer
leaders is sure that there are at least
150 men in college who have had ex-
perience in this line, yesterday's try-
outs brought, out but seven men, an
altogether insufficient number.
Further try-outs will be held from
4:30 to 5 this afternoon on the third
floor of the Union. C. 'E. Bottin,
'20E, committee. chairman, expressed
hopes that at least 25 to 30 men )Al
appear at this time. Men will be
given good try-outs at the Case game
and at the mass meeting before the
X. A. C. game.
The student body may rest as-
sured that there will be competent
yell-masters at the Case game, Jfor
some of the old men will be back, and
will step in in case of pinches.

attempted at Ann Arbor. The masses
will be read for students only, and in
this sense the chapel might be termed
a campus institution. This system
is already in vogue at several other
universities, and has been found
highly successful.
Building Remodeled
The chapel is to be located at the
site formerly occupied by the Knights
of Columbus. The house originally
was used by the Theta Phi Alpha so-
rority, but subsequently was taken
over by Knights of Columbus when,
last winter, it was found to be too
cold to have itheir tut on the cam-
pus. Upon the dissolution of the S.
A. T. C. last December, the house was
vacated by the Knights of Colum-
bgs and work was begun to trans-
form the structure into the chapel,
for which purpose it will be used.
Father' Burke, at present' located
at St. Joseph's Sanitarium, will as-
sume complete supervision of ;the
chapel. Masses will be read at 7:30
and 10 o'clock in the morning.
To 13e Temporary Chapel i
It is planned to continue services
at the chapel until the new church,
which St. Thomas' parish plans build-
ing in the immediate vicinity of the/
campus, is completed. Ths, then,
will serve the purpose of the tempor-
ary chapel.
