Prellmuary Tabulations
Per Cent-of People
in Cities

Show 519

(By Associate Press),
Washington, Oct. 7.-The 1920 popu-
lation of continental United States was
announced today by the census bur-
eau as 105,683,190. This was an in-
crease of 13,710,842\ or 14.9 per cent
since 1910.
Today's total does not include the
population of outlying possessions
which will be announced as soon as
the figures for Alaska and the mili-
tary and naval services abroad are
tabulated. It is estimated, however,
that these possessions have 12,250,000
inhabitants, so the total number of
people living under the American flag,
is in round numbers 118,000,000.
The figures for continental United
States compare with 91,972,266 ten
years ago and 75,994,575 20 years ago.
The increase for the last decade how-
ever felt 2,266,849 or 6.1 per cent be-
low that of the preceding decade.
Rogers Explains Loa.
Director Rogers of the census bur-
eau in a formal statement attribut-
ed this loss to the almtost complete
stopping of immigration during the
world war and increase in emmigra-
tion during the same period, deaths in'
the influenza epidemic of 1917 and
1918 and war casualties. 4
The statement noted that the trend
of population from the country to the
city has been greatly accentuated
since 1910. For the. first time in the
history of the country jmore than one-
half of the entire population is now
living in urban territory.
City Claims Most People
Preliminary tabulations Mr. Rogers.
said showed that 54,816,209 or 51.9
per cent of. the people were living in
incorporated places of 2,500 inhabi-
tants or more, and 50,866,899 or 48.1
per cent in rural territory.
This situation was clearly reflected
in the figures as to farms in the
country which also were made pub-
lie today. These placed the total of
the farms at 6,459,998, an increaseof
only 98,496 or 1.5 per cent in ten
years as against an increase of 624,130
or 10.9 per cent for the previous de-
cade. Revised figures for a number
of cities and counties are yet to be
announced but the main of the 1920
census is completed after nine months
of labor.

President Marion L. Burton conclud-
ed the series of four informal reccp,
tions which he held for the male stu-
dents of the University when he ad-
dressed the sophomores last night.
The second year men were urged by
the president to look upon themselves
as citizens of the University, and to
to their work in such a manner that
Fahey would not'be cheating themselv-
es. He emphasized the fact'that the
time had come to dispense with the
idea that a college man exchanges a
four yeA r meal ticket for a diploma.
The purpose of these receptions was
to give the students an opportunity to
meet President Burton, and he ex-
presse himself as pleased in the man-
ner in which the men have turned out.
Announcement of the personnel of
the reorganized committees of regents
was made yesterday by President Ma-
rion L. Burton.
The new arrangement, taking the
place of the old system of having re-
gents' committees to look after the in-
terest of each school and college, is
expected to increase the interest of
the regents in the University as a
whole. The committees are as fol-
Executive committee - President
Burton, chairman, Regents J. E. Beal
and W. H. Sawyer.
Finance - Regent Frank Leland,
chairman, Regents W. H. Sawyer and
L. L. Hubbard.T
Salaries-Regent Victor Gore, chair-
man, Regents J. O. Murfin and Frank
Buildings and Grounds-Regent W.
H. ,Clements, chairman, Regents Ben-
jamin Hanchett and L. L. Hubbard.
Library -Regent W. H. Clements,
chairman, and Regents Benjamin Han-
chett and Victor Gore.
Edulcational Policies - President
Burton, chairman, Regents Victor
Gore and Frank Leland.
Promotion of Research - Regent
Benjamin Hanchett, chairman, Regents
W. L. Cleemnts and Walter Sawyer.
Student Welfare-Regent James O.

chairman of the executive and educa-
tional policies committees, and ex-offi-
cio member of all other committees.

Caldwell Knocked Out in One-Third
of Inning by Concentrated
Brooklyn Attack

(By Associated Press)
New York, Oct. 7-Sherrod W. Smith,
Brooklyn's southpaw hurling ace,
pitched himself into a place in the
world series hall of fame, when he
had Cleveland helpless in the third
game of the world series which Brook-
lyn won 2 to 1.
Smith was supported by his team-
mates in a manner which fully equal-
led the best exhibition of fielding
seen in many similar contests. It
was almost impossible for Cleveland
to get a drive through the various
combinations which shifted with
lightning speed from place to place
wherever the ball was hit.
Gives But Three Hits
Only three hits were made off the
winning hurler and of these catcher
Steve O'Neil gathered in two and
Manager Speaker one. Speaker made
his hit, a double, in the fourth inning,
O'Neil followed with a single in the
fifth and another in the eighth. Had
Zack Wheat played Speaker's double
safe, Smith would have been credited
with a world series shutout. Of the
28 batters who faced Smith only 5
reached first base, 3 on hits and 2
on passes.
Brooklyn Bats Its Way to Victory
Brooklyn batted its way to victory
in the first inning by falling on the
offerings of Ray Caldwell as soon as
he took his place on the mound. What
Manager Speaker saw in Caldwell's
curves when the latter wound up will
always be a mystery. Certainly the
lanky pitcher had nothing but delib-
eration after he entered the bo. Of
this he had plenty to spare. A base
on balls, an error and two hits netted
the Superbas the two runs that won
the game.
In many respects the game measur-
edl up to the third be contest seen in
any world series contest in many
years. Old time players and follow-
ers of the game were unanimous in
this opinion. The entire contest al-
though marred by two errors scintil-
lated with defensive plays which
brought the thousands of spectators
to their feet repeatedly.
Real Baseball Weather
It was the first contest to be play-
ed in real baseball weather and the
fans showed the effects of the more
suitable setting.
The outcome of the third 'game in
no way appeared to affect the conficl-
ence of Manager Speaker in the ability
of his players to win out in the com-
ing wattles which switch to Cleve-
land tonight.
"We will win the series," was the
comment of Speaker as he left the
field. He declared Brooklyn's victory
was due to better team work in the
field by Brooklyn.
"Just as I thought, two days ago,"'
Manager Robinson of Brooklyn, said,
'the series will be very colse. The
clubs are very evenly matched butI
think we have the edge on Cleve-
land with respect to pitchers."

Gabrilowitsch Will Open Concerts
Here with Chopin Recital
Oct. 19


New York, Oct. 7-Five men were
killed, five others are missing and be-
lieved to be dead, and more than a
score injured in an explosion which
wiecked a forward compartment of the
British tanker Crowe of Toronto, un-
dergoing repairs at a Brooklyn ship-
yard. The blast which endangered
the lives of more than 200 workmen
is believed to have been caused when
gases from an empty oil tank were
ignited by a blow torch. One man
was thrown more than 100 feet in the
air. The majority of the wounded
were burned and lacerated but all are
expected to live. Damage to the ship
amounted to thousands of dollars.'

ed at 3 o'clock.
Mrs Marion L. Burton, the guest of
honor, will receive with the officers
and directors at an informal tea fol-
lowing the program.
The latest registration figures re-
ported show that the number of stu-
dents in the University this year will
approximate the first estinate given
out in Tuesday's Daily, or about 10.-
Registrar Hall has made no official
count since Monday of the literary stu-
dents but he says that as far as he
can ascertain the number registering
late is the same as first announced.
The Law school has 340 students en-
rolled, which is eight more than reg-
istered at the same time last year.
This school expects there will be
about 400 tsudents as a total for the
year. This will be 20 more than last
There are 2,072 registered in the

Thanksgiving Service Arranged
Contrary to the general custom of
holding the services in the evening,
[Till auditorium will open its doors
for the third Union service of the year
at 11 o'clock on Thanksgiving morn-
ing when Prof. Edward A. Steiner of
Grinnel college, will deliver a talk to
the student gathering. Professor
Steiner is a writer and lecturer, the
author of "Against the Current," and
several other books, and, although.
a professor of sociology, devotes about
a half of his time during the year to
his platform work.
/Probably the best known speaker to
appear in the early part of the series
.is Mr. Chase S. Osborn, ex-governor
of Michigan and a former Regent of
the University. Mr. Osborn is also
known as a lecturer and author, be-
ing noted especially for his book, "The
Iron Hunter," which deals largely
with some of the earlier days at the
University. He was also a candidate
for Republican nomination for senator
against Senator Truman H. Newberry.
'ommitte Officers Chosen
At a meeting held yesterday after-
noon, Robert F. Grindley, '21E, was
elected chairman of the Union serv-
ices committee and Fred J. Petty, '21,
was chosen to preside at the first meet-
ing. The other members of the com-
mittee are Richard C. Losch, '21, Ches-
ser M. Campbell, '21, Marcella Moon,
'21, Marguerite Clark, '21, Lois De-
Vries, '21, Eva Lemert, Rev. L. A.
Barrett. Rev. S. S. Robins, Rev. J. M.
Wells, and Mr. T. S. Evans of the Un-
iversity Y. M. C. A., the latter to con-
tinue his work this year as secretary
of the committee.
Sook Yet Lacking
For Union Opera
Considerable trouble is being expe-
rienced by the Union in finding a suit-
able book for the opera pext spring.
Very little music has appeared as yet
for this year's production.
George Roderick, '21E, who wrote'
several of the pieces used in last year's
production, has turned in several num-
bers. However, other writers are need-
ed and anyone interested should get
in touch with Mr. Earl V. Moore, mu-
sical director at the Union.
It is expected that E. Mortimer
Shuter, director of last year's opera,
will come to Ann Arbor next week
to make plans for this year's produc-,
tion. Mr. Shuter is at present in Phil-
adelphia helping Fred Stone put on
"Tip Top," a new Charles Dillingham
production, which will open soon in
New York. Plans for the opera -i 11
undoubtedly progress more rapidly,
after Mr. Shuter's visit.

Omaha, Neb., Oct. 7-On his, west-
ward swing of his campaign Sen.
Harding urged today that the nation
stay out of the League of Nations al-
together and reject the obligations of
the league covenant.
Declaring that clarifying reserva-
tions would never meet the require-
ments of national security the Repub-
lican nominee, put before the voters
of Iowa and Nebraska the direct issue
of accepting or rejecting membership
in the league.
"I do not want to clarify these obli-
gations," he said, "I want to turn my
back on them. It is not interpreta-
tion but rejection that I favor. I- un-
derstand the position of the Democrat-
ic nominee and he understands mine.
In simple words it is that he favors
going into the Paris league and I
favor staying out."
Students Under Absent Voter Act
Students who wish to participate in
suffrage this fall under the "Absentee
Voters act" may receive the stationery
and blanks after next week at the
Republican club headquarters, 234
Nickels Arcade.
Michigan students must have their
application blanks in their respective
town or city clerk's office by Oct. 16.

"The Broken Wing," a melodrama
which opened Monday evening at the
Park Square theater, Boston, was
written by Paul Dickey and Charles

favorably received by the public on
its first nights and critics of the Hub
have predicted a long and successful
The setting of the play is in an un-
settled part of Mexico where a youth-
ful American aviator is forced to land
by a broken wing.
"The Misleading Lady," which made'
its initial appearance in 1914 and had
a record run at the Fulton theater in
New York was also written by Mr.
Goddard and Mr. Dickey.

Census returns recently received by.
the chamber of commerce show the
city to have increased thirty-one per
cent in population since, the taking of
the last census in 1910.
The present population of Ann Ar-
bor, as compiled in the 1920 census, is
19,516, while the total number of in-
habitants in 1910 was 14,728. The in.-
crease is said by chamber of commerce
officials to be a normal one.
Baggageman Delivers 8,000 Trunks
Trunks, trunks, trunks. Life has
been just one trunk after another for
Ann Arbor baggage nien for more
than a week. One company has been
hauling an average of 800 trunks a
day ever since the influx of students
began. Engaged in such work alone,
this company has five trucks and ten
men. All the other darymen and
baggage handlers in the city report a
greatly increased volume of business
this year. As nearly as can be esti-
mated more than 8,000 trunks have
already been delivered.

This year's program of the Y. W.
C. A. will include a new activity, the
organiaztion of a forum among wo-
men students.
According to the official definition,
"the forum is to consist of discussion
groups, the purpose of which is to
promote democracy on the campus."
These groups will meet every other
week to discuss informally problems
of local and general interest, and will
afford an opportunity for the consid-"
eration of campus policies.
Each prospective Y. W. C. A. mem-,
ber was asked to check on a card the
topics that she would like to hear dis-
cussed. Some subjects such as per-
sonal efficiency, freshman standards,
child labor, and indastrial democracy
were listed.
"By means of this innovation," said
Gertrude Boggs, '22, chairman of the
committee in charge of the new Stu-
dents' forum, "we hope not only to
give students the opportunity for dis-
cussion of current problems, but also
to bring a large number of girls to-
gether under the Y. W. C. A."
