To the Members of the D iiversity:
On Friday afternoon, Nov. 5, at 4 o'clock, in Hill auditorium, Mr. Charles
W. Farnham, attorney of St. Paul, Minnesota, will deliver an address upon
the subject, "Theodore Roosevelt." All lovers of Mr. Roosevelt will feel that
they have made a very wise use of the hour if they hear this lecture. I have
rarely heard anything which has appealed more to both Faculty and stu-
dents than this address. It abounds in fresh material presented in a most
interesting and attractive fashion. The lecture is free and is open to the
public. Mr. Farnham deserves a large and representative audience.

Business Manager Says at Least 3,000
Subscriptions Must Be
With only a few days left for stu-
dents to sign up for the Michiganen-
sian a record breaking finish must
be staged in order to make the cam-
paign a success. At present, in spite
of strenuous efforts on the part of
salesmen, only about 600 copies have
been subscribed for.
According to Boyd H. Logan, '21,
business manager of the yearbook,
"at least 3,000 subscriptions must be
received in order to make the 'En-
sian the kind of a publication that it
has been in the past."
Copies Limited to Subscribers
The business staff of the yearbook
has decided ntot to order any extra
copies printed to accommodate those
who are planning on purchasing their
books next spring. The difficulty of
estimating what the demand will be
at that time has impelled the man-
agement to confine the schedule to
the actual number ordered, in order
that the end of the year may not find
a large supply of unsold copies.
Book Usually Sent to 500 Schools
'Ensian officials emphasized yes-
terday the loss that would accrue to
the University if the last days of the
drive are not more successful than
the start has been. They said that the
yearbook is one of the best forms o
advertising that the University has
inasmuch as it goes to more than 500
high schools throughout the country.
Friday is the last day of the cam-
Postponement of the convention of
the University PresstClub of Michigan
to the first three days in December
was announced yesterday by Prof.
John R. Brumm of the rhetoricdepart-
ment, president of the organization.
The meeting was scheduled to have oc-
curred next week, with the opening
date Wednesday, Nov. 10.
The program for the conference is
practically arranged, and includes
speakers from the faculty of the Uni-
versity and editors of various papers
in the state.
Detroit Publisher to Talk
James Schermerhorn, who is the
publisher of the Detroit Times, will
speak at the smoker, which will in-
formally open the meeting on th
evening of Dec. 1. Schermerhorn is
known throughout the country as an
after-dinner speaker and as an or-
ganizer of newspaper work.
At the first session Thursday
morning President Marion L.TBurton
will speak. Others on the program
are: Prof. F. N. Scott, head of the
rhetoric department; Prof. E. R.
Sunderland, of the law faculty, chair-
man of the board in control of stu-
dent publications; W. W. Bishop, Uni-
versity librarian; and Rev. Lloyd
Douglas, of the Congregational

church, who was formerly connected
with newspaper work.
There will be a banquet Friday
night for the editors from the various
parts of the state who are meeting
here, and it is possible that Thurs-
day night they will attend the Choral
Union concert.
A constitution has been drawn up
by Professor Brumm, president of the
club and head of the department of
journalism in the University, and
Carley Johnson, secretary of the or-
ganization and managing editor of
the Ann Arbor Times-News. This will
be presented to the club for adop-
tion at the convention.
Club to Aid Co-operation
The purpose of the organization,
which was founded last year when
editors of various newspapers in the
state met with teachers here, is the
maintaining of a clearer understand-
ing between editors and the Univer-
sity. It is believed that the former
know how the University can be of
better service to the state, and it is
also thought that the University can
do much to serve the state through
the various newspapers which the ed-
itors in the organization represent.
It has been announced that the
meetings of the Press club, at least
all of the general sessions, will be
open to students of journalism and
to those other students of the Uni-
versity who are interested in this line
of work.

tations to join Mortarboard, senior

ter's Tea room.
