J. J. Kelly, manager of the local
branch of the Michigan State Tele-
phone company, mailed out with the
month's statement a circular stating
that the telephone rates were increas-
ed 15 per cent. This raise follows the
permission of the public utilities com-
mission to increase the rate in all of
the company's exchanges except the
one at Detroit. The manager also
stated that previous to this raise the
Ann Arbor rates were unusually low
and this exchange had never paid ex-

hood they are most anxious to attract
to their student bodies. Prior to our
return to the Conference, Michigan
was talked of a great deal through-
out the East because of the excell-
ence of her teams, and the high char-
acter of her sportsmanship. Our East-
ern games drew well, relations were
most pleasant, and the benefits we
derived therefrom were most excel-.
lent. Upon our return to the Confer-
ence, however, cessation of all East-
ern competition resulted in the loss
of a great deal of the momentum we
had attained; in other words, our
Eastern relations were not extended
long enough to give them a real cu-
mulative value. At the present time,
as a result, the University of Michi-
gan is practically without any recog-
nition along the Eastern seaboard,.
with the result that she is very little
known among the boys who are grow-
ing up here. Should she compete in
Eastern football, particularly with one
of the three foremost schools ,the
publicity and advertising resulting
therefrom would be far-reaching, and
would do much to attract the better
class of student, and to retain inter-
est and loyalty among her alumni.
Would Not Conflict
It is with no .thought of interfer-
ence in Conference rules or regula-
tions that this communication is sent.
Back in 1912-13 the writer as editor
of the Michigan Daily, dedicated the
entire editorial efforts of the paper
to a return of Michigan to the Con-
ference. It is his personal convic-
tion, viewed from six years' residence
in New York, that to a man our
Eastern alumni are happy over Mich-
igan's return to the fold.
We do not understand, however.
that a schedule of Eastern games is
in conflict with the policy of the Con-
ference. ,Chicago has scheduled a
home and home game with Princeton;
we understand on good authority that
Illinois is negotiating with Harvard;
and it is no open secret that Yale is
seeking an intersectional home and
home game, and iregards Michigan
Inasmuch as Michigan's 1921 schei-
ule has not yet been announced, we
trust that this communication will be
given prominence in the columns of
The Daily, and that, if your views co-
incide with ours, the subject will be
given, in addition, your editorial ap-
proval. Thanking you for your cour-
tesy in this matter, and with best
wishes, I am

HURST IN FAVOR OF EASTERN
GAME ON MICHIGAN SCHEDULE
(Continued from Page One)
Up to a few years ago nongreat ef-
ofrt had been made to keep in touch
with Michigan alumni. The result of
this failure was shown in the diffi-
culty of raising the funds for the
Michigan Union. If the Michigan
spirit had been kept alive, these funds
would certainly have come in in great-
We in the East, who haven't had
the opportunity of keeping in touch
with Michigan as those residing near-
er have, feel that through an ath-
letic policy of scheduled contests in
all sections of the country, Michi-
gan's alumni spirit can be greatly de-
I wrote Mr. Shaw, Alumni secretary,
some time ago concerning this very
point-I believe at the time of the in-
tercollegiates in 1919, as there was
some intimation made then that this
might be Michigan's last appearance;
and I am now writing you in order
that you may know the feeling of the
alumni in the East.

CONSUMPTION OF NARCOTICS
ON INCREASE, SAYS GOMEZ
Dr. GA. DuMez, federal health
service officer, spoke to pharmacy
students yesterday evening upon traf-
fic in narcotic drugs, demonstrating
by statistics the recent increase in
consumption of narcotics the world
over, and emphasizing the fact that
the United States has taken the lead
in attempts to curb the drug evil.
Complete control of the actions and
sensations of his subject is promised
by Robert Deebach, '23D, in his hyp-
notic act in the Spotlight vaudeville
next Tuesday evening. Deebach has
made full preparations for his stunt,!
and, though his time on the' stage will
not be sufficiently long for him to pro-
duce his entire "book of tricks," he
will be able to make a few convincing
demonstrations. He plans, among
other things, to keep some 15 or 20
subjects under his influence at, one
time, and he will call upon the audi-
ence to furnish these subjects.
Deebach is choosing but one man to
assist him in the presentation, Her-
bert Dunphy, '23, whom he will use
for the more complete stages of hyp-
notism. The act will embrace two
kinds of hypnotism, lethargic and
catalaeptic, the former being that in
which Deebach will control the pulse
and sensations of the subject, while in
the cataleptic stage, the body of the
subject becomes so rigid as to allow
three or four men to stand on it when
it is supported on the backs of two
Deebach has had several years' ex-
perience in presenting hypnotic acts
in vaudeville in the West. During
the war he gave many demonstrations
in army camps, notably in Arizona.
in Washington and at Camp Sheridan.
At one time he suggested that his sub-
ject, a private, act as mess sergeant
with the result that the hypnotized
doughboy armed with a couple of
butcher knives and sticks of wood,
took forcible possession of the mess
Although this is Deebach's second
year in the University, Tuesday eve-
ning is his first public appearance in

Percy Grainger, the young Austra-
lian genius of the piano, made his
debut last night in the Hill auditor-
ium. His virile manner and winning
personality immediately made him a
favorite with the appreciative audi-
ence which had congregated to hear
His first piece, an Organ Prelude
and Fugue, D major, by Bach-Bu-
soni, showed great training, tech-
nique, and ability. During the first
part there was a lack of expression:
which made the hearing of it some-
what tiresome, but the second part
could not have been played better.
The musical tone with which he play-
ed the "Humoresque" by H. Balfour
Gardiner would have delighted any
Mr. Grainger put his best expres-,
sion in Kramer's "When the Sun Goes
Down," while his rendition of the
"Juba Dance" brought a smile of en-
joyment from every face in the audi-
ence. Upon the audience's request
this piece was played over.
After playing "Variations on a
Theme by Paginini" by Brahms, Mr.
Grainger played three encores, one
being "Springtime" by Grieg and an-
other, the famous "Turkey in the
Straw." The latter was changed into
a classic under the artist's skillful
Mr. Grainger's own compositions,
"Country Grandees" and "One More
Day, My John," show what a great
influence Bach has over him.

EARLY, IS ADVICE
Request that students leaving Ann
Arbor for the Christmas vacation
purchasettheir railroad and sleeping
car tickets as soon as possible is
made by J. W. Switzer, assistant gen-
eral passenger agent of the Michigan
Central railroad, in a letter to Pres-
ident Marion L. Burton.
"To properly care for the large
number of students leaving Ann Ar-
bor," wrote Mr. Switzer, "students
should, when it is possible for them
to do so, purchase railroad and sleep-
ing car tickets and check their bag-
gage in advance. This will relieve
congestion at the ticket office and
baggage room, and enable us to take
much better care of the students us-
ing our road."
A. J. Wiselogel, in charge of the
station here, emphasizes the request
made by the Detroit office, and asks
that students give the matter their

fident that from ,this large field of
aspirants they will have little trouble'
