Cheer Leader
Not Yet Chosen
While there were two or three men
who showed up very creditably in the
cheer-leaders' tryouts at the Case
game, Saturday, no one has been defi-
nitely picked to fill this place, as


Union Announces Changed System
In Registering All New Members




The committee in charge intends to
have thoroughly competent men on
hand to lead the cheering by the M.
A. C. game, and with this end in
view again calls for tryouts. Accord-
ing to C. ji Bottum, '20E, there are
half a dozen men who are still to be
tried out, aiid it is hoped that there
will be at least twice that' many by
the ,week-end.
All men may be certain that they
will receive a fair tryout. The com-
mittee still finds the turn out for the
job disappointingly small, and is
sglad to give all men every possible
chance to make good. All-those.in-
terested should call Bottum, at 1399.1

Changes in the system of register-
ing Union members have been made
by the officials in charge, owing to the
inability of the committee to be pre-
sent at all times. Life and annual
members may now register at the Un-
ion desk from 7 o'clock every morning
until midnight.
Blanks may be secured at the desk
and a special table has been provided
at which they may be filled out. This
change is primarily for the benefit of
life members, the majority of whom
have as' yet failed to register.
Want Registration Immediately;
As committee appointments are
made upon the basis of the candidate's
qualifications as set forth on his mem-
bership card, life members, who form
the most important part of the Union,
are asked to register immediately in
order that they may be placed on com-
mittees. Registration will continue at

the desk for two or three weeks more
when it is expected that every one
will have registered. As there are
about 5,800 men in the University the
Union expects that about 900 life mem-
bers will sign up and about 4,900 an-
nual members. At present only 100
life members have registered and 3,400
annual members.
Committee Meets Monday
The appointment committee .meeta
Monday morning at which time com-
mittees will be chosen. It is therefore
necessary for all the cards to be sorted
and filed by that time. Announcement
of the committees will be made about
Thursday, Oct. 16, after the names
have been submitted to the eligibility
committee for ratification. More men
than ever will be placed on the com-
mittees this year, owing to the more
extensive uses to which the Union
will be placed.

tions to rmore than 90 per cent of the

versity hall and on the campus, more
than 200 subscriptions have been sold
by the business staff of The Chimes.

agement to,.all members of last year's

hall. All members of former clubs
are expected to come with instru-
ments. Freshmen will not be allow-
ed on the Varsity club but may try-
out, and'. if sufficient interest is
shown, arrangements will be made
for a freshman club.
Demand' for Union Rooms Fals
Alumni rooms at the Union, waich
were full during the first days of
school because students stayed there
when unable to get other places, are
not so much in demand, as the num-
ber of transient alumni is unusually
few at the present time, only 19 rooms
being occupied.

Washington, Oct. 7.-After perfect-j

trial conference called by President
Wilson got tangled up in its own rules1
and adjourned until tomorrow.
Secretary Lane was elected perm-
anent chairman. In his speech of ac-
ceptance he stirred the delegates rep-1
resenting capital, labor and the pub-
lic to great enthusiasm by declaring
that the high purpose of the gathering
made failure Impossible in the eort
to harmonize industrial relations in
this country.
*Proceding to the adoption of rules
the conference struck its first snag
in a protest that the report of the
rules committee soa4e no provision
for minority expression and was a
"travesty" on free deliberation. The,
criticism caused early adjournment to
permit amendments to be formulated
by the respective groups 'b-ut on re-
convening the rules were adopted
without material change. They 'pro-
vide for public sessions and unan-
imous vote by groups on all conclu-
sions and decisions, and require the
assent of a group before any member
of it can introduce a resolution.

Hereafter any person holding a de-

years at least, may be admitted to

However, this change does not in-
validate (until January, 1922) the

averages of a nrmber of thre men's
houses on the campus, it was found
necessary to declare the standing as
previously given out to newspapers, as
"I do not think that the revision
will affect the standing of the ma-
jority of the fraternities to any great
extent," Dr. Hall declared. "Yet we
who are in the office and who will be
responsible for the chart, would rath-
er have it correct in every respect, in
just. e to all fraternities in the Uni-.
versty." -
Dr. Hall declared that if any
houses were affected by the correc-
tion, it would be very slight, as rec-
ords showed that mistakes were
largely due to complications during
the S. A. T. C. and post-S. A. T. C.
Will Take Some Time
"Due to the enormous task we have
before us as a result of the large en-
rollment, it may be some time be-
fore we have the' corrected standing,
but we want it to be correct before it'
is published and distributed," he said.
The registrar declared himself
pleased with the general increase in
standing of the men's fraternities, and
said that the slight slump whiPh was
noted last year, was due to war time
He said that he' did not understand
the reason for the drop taken by the
women's clubs and sororities.
The standing of the various divi-
sions on the chart will not be af-
fected by the revision, he declared.
