OF NATIVES BY AMERICANS
(By Associated Press)
Washington, Oct. 13. - Disclosures
that a summary investigation of alleg-
ed "indiscriminate killing" of Haytian
natives by United States marines was
ordered more than a year ago by Ma-
jor General Barnett, then commandant
of the marine corp, was made today
in publication of the report by Gen-
eral Barnett of operations in Hayti,
during the American occupation.
Evidence at the trials of two ma-
rines for the killing of natives "shock-
ed me beyond expression," General
Barnett said in a letter to Col. John
Russel, commanding in Hayti, order-
ing an immediate investigation with
the approval of Secretary Daniels.
In his letter ordering the investiga-
tion General Barnett declared that he
was convinced "that practically indis-:
criminate killing of natives had been
permitted," during uprisings of Ilay-
ABSENTEE VOTERS HHE
FINAL CHANCE 'TO ACT'
All students qualified to vote in the
November presidential election and

voters' act are requested to be at
Republican club headquarters in the
Arcade as early as possible today.
A wire from George A. Glynn. chair-

a representatives of the committee
will be in Ann Arbor to see to the fill-
ing out of necessary affidavits for New
York voters, which affidavits must be

It was also stated at the office of
the Republican club that the time lim-
it is the same in practically all states.
For this reason it will be best to have
these affidavits filled out and sworn tp
before a notary public before Satur-
day. New York voters especiallly are
requested to be on hand in the morn.

SIXTEEN CASES COME
f BEFORE COMMITTEE
NOW BEING SETTLED
When the committee on appeal, in
connection yith the housing situation.
adjourned late yesterday afternoon 16
cases of disagreements between Ann
Arbor landladies and student room-
ers had been heard, and a few settled
to the satisfaction of both parties.
The majority of the differences up
before the committee this week were
in regard to students moving out of
rooms contracted for for the season.
Several landladies testified that they
had reserved rooms for students prior
to the opening of the University this
fall, only to be informed within the
last few days that the tenants had se-
cured rooms elsewhere.
The housing committee insists that
the wholesale vacating of contracted
rooms by University students must be
stopped at once, for it is both unfair
to the landladies and contrary to a
Michigan tradition. In several inst-
ances disagreements of the latter na-
ture have been amicably settled by the
The committee on appeal will be in
session at 3 o'clock next Tuesday aft-
ernoon in room 302 of the Michigan
Union to adjust all further differences.
Union Registration Still Low
Registration figures at the Union
reached 4,378 last night, about 100
men having filled out cards during the
day. This number is still about 1,100
short of the 5,500 expected. Upper
classmen and life members are urged
by Union officials to register at once
since it is believed there are quite a
number in those groups who have not
yet signed up. Every man is supposed
to register each year.
Zionists to Weet Sunday In Lane Hall
The first meeting of the Intercol-
legiate Zionist society will be held
at 3 o'clock Sunday in Lane hall. The

ALUMNUS PRAISES CHEERINQ
BUT SCORES STUDENT FOR NQT
Editor, The Michigan Daily:
This year more than ever in the
past Michigan is making a determin-
ed effort to regain her football stand-
ing. In her efforts towards this end
she has the materials and coachingf
assistance which should develop a
team worthy of the University.
The alumni as a whole are backing
her to the limit and the writer be-
lieves, from what he has heard on the
campus, that the student body will
give the team its unqualified support.
Student sympathy and enthusiasm is
shown to the greatest degree in root-
ing and singing during the games.
At the Case game last Saturday the
cheering was exceptionally good, and
all that it lacked to become immense-
ly effective was a little more organi-
zation on the part of the cheer lead-
ers and further practice by the root-
ers.. As for massed- singing the stu-
dent body is fairly familiar with The
Yellow and Blue and when led by
the University band can go through
that inspiring song with very credit-
The writer does not believe that in
Varsity it is generally realized Michi-
gan has one o the finest and most in-
spiring football songs ever written
and it is a positive disgrace that it is
not well enough known by the stu-
dents at large to be decently sung at
the games. The words of the song
are easy to remember and they can be
memorized in a short time by any-
I therefore suggest that the Stu-
dent Council take this matter in
hand, making arrangements to have
the song rehearsed at the next mass
meeting, also having the song printed
In pamphlet form and distributed at
the next game.
