night in Body to Have Chance
for Victory
A meeting of the class of 1923, on"
the turn-out at which depends the
sophomore's success in the annual
fall games to be held on Ferry field
Saturday morning before the Chicago
game, is scheduled for 7:30 o'clock
tonight in University Hall; John
Cary, '22L, will be in charge of the
meeting and Howard L. Donnely,
'21L, will give a short talk to the
second year men.
In addition to the election of a man
to act as captain of the Sophomores,
the games, which are somewhat dif-
ferent this year than they were last
year, will be fully explained.
Yearlings Enthusiastic
The contests were explained to the
freshmen last night at a meeting of
that class held in Hill auditorium.
"The spirit which the first year men
showed was excellent and unless the
sophomores turn out -at the meeting
to be held for them they will have a
very small chance of winning the
games Saturday," declared Calvin G.
Wetzel, '21E, chairman of the Stu-
dent council committee on Fall games.
Wetzel, in opening the meeting,
laid special emphasis on a new stunt
called the "cane rush," which is pop-
ular at Ohio State, and will be tried
here for the first time Saturday morn-

"You must have unity, organiza-
tion, and fight," declared James I.
McClintock, '21L, who spoke second
on the program. John Cary, '22L, ad-
monished the first year men not to
kill any sophomores until Saturday.
The meeting came to a close after an
enthusiastic talk by Harry Kipke, '24,
freshman captain.
The freshmen wil1 meet at 9 o'clock
Saturday morning, n front of the Li-
brary. All men nct at the meeting
last night are asked to appear early,

Circulation Of
Daily Increases

Poppy sales yesterday topped
7,000. Under the auspices of the city
Y. W. C. A. poppies were sold on all
State and Main street corners. The
proceeds from the sale will go to-
ward the support of the hostess hous-
es of the four American cemeteries in
France. The poppy is a symbol of
Armistice day and the Y. W. C. A. is
making every effort in its power to
have everyone wear one of the flowers
"The sales exceeded by far my high-
est hopes," said Miss Lucille Litaker,
Y. W. C. A. secretary, who is per-
sonally interested in the work. "Pop-
pies are going like wild-fire. We are
practically sold out. I am sure that
we could have sold 12,000 flowers
Next Tuesday morning the Union
starts its three day campaign to sign
up 2,500 new life members.
This drive, which has become an an-
nual affair, has assumed an unusually
important status this year because of
the extensive building program that
the Union has laid out. The mem-
bership fees will be utilized in the
building fund, and if the desired quota
of 2,500 members is signed up, it will
mean an addition of $125,000 to that
fund. This will bring the plans for
enlargement that have been announc-
ed much nearer fulfillment.
Last year the drive netted a total
of 2,200 new life members. Union of-
ficials expect to better this record in
the present campaign because of the
larger number of prospective life.
members upon the campus now.
There are at least 2,500 freshmen and
this class is expected to sign up close
to 100 per cent. Most of the men of
the three classes have already taken
out life memberships with the excep-
tion of those who have entered from
other colleges. There is little chance
of the drive faling short as there are,
all told, more than enough non-mem-
bers in the University to reach the
quota, according to Maynard Newton,
'22, chairman of the campaign com-
Captains of the soliciting teams will
meet at 7:30 o'clock tonight at the
Union, and next Monday evening an

ers will be held in the Union assem-
bly hall.

Plan Amicable Settlement of Baseball
Split at Joint Chicago
(By Associated Press)
Kansas City, Nov. 10.-War clouds
tonight were vanishing from the ma-
jor league baseball horizon with in-
dications favoring an amicable settle-
ment when the belligerent major lea-
guers meet in a joint session in Chi-
cago on Friday to effect a peace
pact . The national association of
minor leagues, after listening to both
sides, voted to help avoid a war by
agreeing to appoint a committee to
act with the major leagues in devis-
ing a plan for baseball reorganiza-
No Presidents or Lawyers
The 16 club owners of the two war-
ring leagues agreed to meet at Chi-
cago and attempt to adjust their dif-
ferences without the aid of outsid-
ers. It was agreed that only the club
owners should attend the meeting,
and that both President Johnson of
the American league and President
Heydler of the National as well as
lawyers who have participated in re-
cent sessions, shall remain away. Ma-
ir league leaders pointed out that if
lawyers are excluded, so that no
"technical questions" could be raised,
threatened war could be quickly set-
President Johnson of the American
league commenting on the meeting
tonight said the purpose of the con-
ference is to see if the two major
leagues may not in some way iron
out their points of difference.
Landis Choice Stands
While the National league club
owners issued no formal statement
most of them take the stand that
what already has been done in the
advancement of baseball reorganiza-
tion cannot be changed at the con-
ference Friday. This was taken t
mean that the selection of Federal
.Tudge Landis as chairman of the new
hoard of control at a salary of $50,-
000 a year must be accepted by the
American league club owners.
With reports of Wednesday's sub-
scriptions yet to be turned in, the
committee in charge of the budget
campaign for Ann Arbor's local char-
itable organizations announces that a
total of $17,545.85 has been thus far
This sum includes the results of
the pre-canvass campaign, which was
held last week, and from which 'do-
nations amounting to $16,569.50 were
pledged. Tuesday, set aside as a day
for voluntary subscriptions, netted
$976.35. In order to realize their goal
of approximately $40,000, the commit-
tee states that yesterday's solicita-
tions, and the results of the house-to-
house canvass which commences Nov.
15 must reach at least $22,500. In all,
570 subscriptions were reported,
among which several of $500 and
$360 were the largest.

In commemoration of the 300th an-
niversary of the signing of the May-
flower pact by the Pilgrims, the Rev.
Sidney S. Robins of the Baptist church
will. give a 10 minute talk today be-
fore the Hill auditorium assembly in
celebration of the. signing of the Arm-
istice. The coincidence of the dates
of the signing of the two pacts pro-
vides the means of the commemora-
tion of both at the same occasion.

Whether the psychology of sugges-
tion is responsible, or the constant
decrease of the illiterate, circulation
on The Daily has reached a total of
4.050, an increase of more than 1,200
over last year.-
It is estimated by the circulation
manager that the total circulation
will reach 4,300 by the end of the
school year.
The additional subscriptions have
necessitated the addition of more
carriers, and the town has been com-
pletely recounted.
At the beginning of the year
The Daily took subscriptions at
the $3.50 rate, with the provision
that all such subscriptions be
paid on or before Nov. 10, or the
$4.00 rate would be charged.
This time has been extended one
day, so that any subscription
which is paid today will cost
$3.50. Because of the increased
cost of the paper this year the
$4.00 rate will be charged with-
out exception on every subscrip-
tion unpaid after today.
