IN BRIEF
Los Angeles, Nov. 10.-A committee
of San Diego business men have invit-
ed the Center college football team
to play the All-Pacific fleet here Christ-
mas day.
Washington,. Nov. 10.-A river of
humanity, American men, women and
children, Americans by heritage, Am-
ericans by election, flowed all day and
far into the night past the bier of
the dead soddier under the great dome
of the capitol. It flowed as the life
blood of the nation itself-a slow but
overwhelming torrent of human docu-
ments gathered to attest the valor of
America's dead in France. From early
day until long after darkness had
shrouded the city, each hour saw
thousands make the slow journey of
honor to the dead.
Washington, Nov. 10.- National
Commander MacSnider, of the Amer-
iean Legion, has addresser the follow-
ing Armistice day message to all de-
partments, posts and members of the
Legion:
"In our celebration of Armistice
day it i6 fitting that we pause in due
honor to the heroic dead-those glor-
ious lads of ours who made this day
possible.
"Nov. 11, 1918, should not mean the
end of our service to our country but
the beginning. We of the American
Legion have pledged ourselves to those
buddies who will never come back to
carry on the battle."
Two Held For Prohibition Violation

whom the police have been seeking for
some months.-

Enter Vulcans
Through Hadesl
Eleven mortals braved the fiery ele-
ments of the underworld yesterday in
order to attain honor in the realms of
the Vulcans. Guided by the grim
Charon, they crossed the gloomy Styx
and passed unscathed the horrible
three-headed Cerberus, watchdog of
Pluto's gateway. But here their
troubles had only begun, for ere night
fell they were led through the depths
of Hades even to the engineering
arch, where they were doomed to the
tantalian fate of perpetually burnish-;
ing the anvils of the Titans.
Vulcans, honorary senior engineer-,
ing society, initiated yesterday the
following men: E. H. Fox, A. L.;
Welch, J. J. Kearney, A. D. Stauffer,;
R. G. Vail, J. A. Riggs, G. M. Chute,,
S. J. CeFrance, H. J. Lauver, Eugene;
Harbeck, and G. W. McCordic. I

banquet was held at the Union. Prof.1
J. H. Cissel, of the structural engi-
neering department, spoke for the)
faculty, J. D. Dow, spoke for the old-
er members of the society, and A. L.
Stauffer, '22E, for the initiates. A. F.

Complete details for the Detroit
Alumni smoker at the Elks' temple
Saturday were announced at the
meeting of the association at its week-
ly luncheon yesterday. The alumni
also condemned the resolution pass-
ed by the Grand Rapids Alumni as-
sociation asking for the removal of
Coach Fielding H. Yost, as being en-
tirely untimely.
Plays by Leased Wire
The smoker Saturday will be held
during the Wisconsin game, and a
leased wire will let the alumni fol-
low the plays upon the Badger field.
Other big games throughout the coun-
try will also be reported quarter by
quarter. Eugene O'Brien, '06, chair-
man of the committee arranging the
smoker, has promised a real get-to-
gether, with much cheering and sing-
ing. The smoker starts at 2:30
o'clock, city time, a half hour before
the game at Madison.
The alumni are particularly anxious
for all students of the University who
are in Detroit Saturday to attend the
smoker.
College Head Speaks
Mahlon H. Day, head of the Canton
Christian college of China, addressed
the alumni on the conditions of China.
He told of the obligation of the na-
tions to help China in the conference
on the limitation of armaments, stat-
ing that the position of the eastern
republic would be greatly affected by
the action the meeting in Washing-
ton would take.
MOORE DELIGHTS LA RGE
AUIENCE A RCITAL
WIDE CHOICE OF AUTHORS ADDS
VARIETY AND INTEREST
TO PROGRAM
(By Sidney B. Coates)
Occasionally an organist plays a
program, every number of which con-
forms to a single mood, and which
carries his entire audience into that
mood during the recital. Such a pro-
gram was played yesterday afternoon
in Hill auditorium by Earl V. Moore,
University organist.
The members of his audiencn came
into the big auditorium from the
bleak outdoors and settled down for
a restful and pleasant 40 minutes.
Mr. Moore gave them what they
sought, in a program of skillfully exe-
cuted numbers, uniting to produce a
feeling.of content which words or ap-
plause will not describe.
After each number the audience
seemed reluctant to arouse itself
from the intellectual ease produced
by good music and leather cushioned
seats. Thus works of Maitland,
d'Evry, Franck and Dubois were all
enjoyed and in nearly th same de-
gree, each composer adding his bit
toward keeping the wished for eon-
' tent constant.

WATCH FOR PINK EXTRA
The Daily will put out anoth-
er pink extra tomorrow giving
a play-by-play account of the
Michigan-Wisconsin game. A
special wire has been leased from
Madison to The Daily so that
the extra will be on the streets
almost at the moment the game
ends.. Call 960 for returns dur-
ing the game; do not call The
Daily editorial office.
The publication offices will be
closed to all persons during the
game except those who are work-
ing on the editorial and business
staffs of the extra.
Watch for the pink sheet.
First on the streets with com-
plete reports of the game play-
by-play.

HAHN PREDICTS VICTORY
FOR MICHIGAN TOM1ORROW
Genuine enthusiasm that only 2,000
husky, lusty, loud-yelling, weather-de-
fying, Michigan voices can show-
cheers that proved beyond any doubt
that the entire student body is behind
Coach Yost and his team of fighting
Wolverines-a turnout which is every
way rivaled- that of two weeks ago
when the team left for Illinois-this
was the nature of the send-off which
was accorded the Varsity last night
as it entrained for Madison to fact its
most crucial test of the season.
Forming behind the Varsity band at
8:30 o'clock in front of Hill auditor-
ium, approximately 1,000 loyal sup-
porters marched down State street to
the stirring tunes of "The Victors,"
and "Varsity." Before they had turned
the corner of Huron street, the num-
ber of marchers had almost doubled,
and locomotive after locomotive rent
the air until the station was reached.
Under the ladership of Al Cuthbert,
'22E, Varsity cheer leader, cheers for
Coach Yost, Archie Hahn, "Duke"
Dunne and the other members of the
team were given. Entreaties from the
assembly for speeches from the play-
ers were futile, but Trainer Hahn was
finally prevailed upon to speak, his
prediction that victory was certain for
Michigan being the signal for an out-
let of more enthusiasm.
