VOL. XXXIII. 'No. 16





jointI Resolution Asks Harding's ,Good
Offiees in Lowering Price
of Anthracite
(By, Associated Press)
Lansing, Mich., Oct. 11.-That a hot
fight awaits the. governor's fuel reg-
ulation bill became more certain to-
day as members of the legislature in
special session studied the measure
A number of leaders in the House
went so far as to declare the bill, if
placed upon its passage today, would
fail to receive the necessary 51 votes,
and probably would fall far short of
the;67 necessary for immediate ef-
fect.7Sentiment againstmthe measure
in the Senate also appeared strong.
On all sides, however, it was admit-
ted that some sort of a fuel bill would
be, put through. Many changes are
expected to follow the public hearing
on " the measure, which began before
the State Affairs committee tonight.
"Fuel" Too Broad
One of the features of th bill, to
which Objection was raised, was the
breadth to the definition of the word
The term fuel, as used in this act,
shall be deemed to mean and include
coal, coke, charcoal, firewood, fuel oil,
and manufactured fuel products, the
bill says.
Hard on Farmers
Members who take exception to the
inclusion of firewood and fuel oil in
the - bill, pointed out that it would
work unnecessary hardships on ev-
ery farmer who might have cordwood+
for sale, and upon the proprietor ofi
every small grocery store in the state
which may sell kerosene for use in oil
stoves. Farmers who sell wood, and
storekeepers, who sell fuel oil, would
have to obtain a license from the fuel
administration and pay tbe fee of five
The bill was introduced in the Sen-
ate today, and refered to the commit-
tee on state affairs.
The House held a short session thisi
morning, devoted to memorial serv-
ices for Martin Meery and Daniel G.
Rankin, members who died since the
last session.
Ask Harding's Help+
A joint resolution addressed to]
President Harding was adopted by thej
Senate. It asks the President, acting]
through the Fuel Administration and
the Interstate Commerce CommissionI
to do what he can to bring about a re-
duction in the present lrice demanded1
for anthracite fuel, and provide for the1
shipment of necessary supplies ofI
fuel into the state.
Automobiles with which to take the
members of the football team to the
Michigan Central station today are
being sought by William G. Lichten-
berg, '23, football manager.+
The team is to leave the MichiganF
Central station for Nashville. Tenn.,
at 12:50 o'clock this afternoon. Con-
sequently, it will be necessary for1
the students who are willing to volun-
teer their machines to be at the
Union by 12 o'clock. Since 28 men
are included in the party which willI
make the trip to-.Vanderbilt, at least
seven machines will be needed.

Rain Falls to Daunt Courage of Can-
didates For Cross
Country Team
Forty-five cross-country men brav-
ed the rainy weather yesterday af-
ternoon for the run out Geddes av-
nue. Coach Ted Sullivan is highly en-
couraged by this spirit and believes
that -if the weather improves, at least
100 men should be out by Saturday.
The coach is confident that between
200 and 300 men will be running ev-
ery day by midseason.
The coaches especially want to see
more freshmen turning out in the af-
ternoons. The freshmen have the
smallest representation of all, so far,
whereas last year the freshmen squad
had 'more men than any one class on
the Varsity squad.
Freshmeen to Receive Loving Cups
The coaches point out to the year-
lings that in; the annual all-fresh run,
the first six men to finish get num-
erals, and the first three are awarded
loving cups. The loving cups are con-
sidered far superior to those awarded
last year or any previous year, and the
authorities expect some keen compe-
tition for the trophies.
Freshmen are also eligible to enter.
the Harpham trophy race, which will
be run some time in November. In
this race the first three men to fin-
ish are awarded loving cups, and the
winner has his name inscribed on the
Harpham trophy, in the Waterman
gymnasium. This race has been run
annually for the last six years, and
as yet no one has had his name carved
on the bowl more than once.
"it" Made Easier to Win
With all the incentives to come out
for cross country, the authorities de-
clare they can see no reason why this
sport should not soon become one of
the most popular on the campus. They
are inclined to believe that the reason
for the lack of interest in cross
country previous to this year has been
due to the difficulty of winning an M
in the sport. Only two men have won
the cross Vountry M in the last ten
years. The Athletic board, with the+

Today Coach Yost will take his
squad of warriors to Nashville,
there to meet the Vanderbilt team
in a contest Saturday which will
mark the renewal of relations
broken off eight years ago. Michi-
gan and Vanderbilt have always
maintained the most friendly of
terms, every encounter on the
field of sport between the two in-
stitutions always being character-
ized by fairness and good sports-
manship. Seven times the Wol-
verines have battled the south-
erners, seven times the men of
/Yost have conquered the Commo-
dores, and now they are seeking
an opportunity to combat Michi-
gan again. It will be a battle, of
that there is no doubt, but that
Michigan will triumph,-that is
for the team and the student body
to decide.
The team will do its part on the
gridiron Saturday. It will fight,
with that "never-say die" spirit
which held the strong Wisconsin
team to a 7-7 tie last year, when
the latter considered Michigan as
a Weak opponent. That game has
gone down in history as a tribute
to the University's athletic
achievements. It is that same
spirit which the team will take
with it to Vanderbilt, though no
one can say of the Michigan elev-
en that it is by any means a weak
The student body must help
in bringing about the victory-by
turning out this afternoon and
giving, the team a send-off that
will fill every man. on that squad
with the assurance that the cam-
pus is behind him. The locomo-
tive yell has often been as import-.
ant a factor in sending off a Mich-
igan tean to a foreign gridiron as
the between-halves pep-talk of the
Old Man.
The team leaves from the Ann
Arbor railroad station at 12:40

o'clock this afternoon. No true
Michigan man or woman should
be more than twenty feet distant
from the station at that time, ev-
en though it may mean hurrying
through or missing a meal. The
men on the squad are making
greater sacrifices than that.
Three things to remember, then,
and one to do:
Time: 12:40.
Place: Ann Arbor station.
Action: Michigan m~n and wo-
men in a continuous cheerfest
for Coach Yost and his men.

Alumni of the University are today
receiving the first copy of the "Mich-
igan Alumnus" of the present college
year. This publication is issued week-
ly during the scholastic year by the
Alumni association.
A large part of the first issue is
given over to a discussion of Michi-
gan's chances this year as regards to
football. This is supplemnted by a
number of pictures of the squad, indi-
vidual players, a picture of assistant
coachGeorgeLittle, and one of the
new Ohio State stadium.

picture, is devoted to Miss Jean Ham-
ilton, new dean of women, whose past
work is outlined briefly.

Arbor this morning and will be met
at the station by members of the re-
ception committee of which Franklin
Johnston, grad., is chairman The
delegates will be conducted to the
Union, where they will register. For
the first time in Ann Arbor the guests
will practically all be housed in one
central place, the Union. A few of
them will stay at their fraternities.
Following President Burton's ad-
dress at 1:15 o'clock, a short business
session will be held, after which an
informal reception is to take place. At
4 o'clock an auto ride around the city
will be given the engineers. The pro-
gram of the day will be brought to a
close by a smoker at the Union at
7:30 o'clock, when the secretary-treas-
urer of the :organization, Prof. R. C.
Matthews of the University of Ten-
nessee, will give his annual report.
Other features planned for the eve-
nig include Hawaiian music by Tang,
'24E, and Tavarres, '24, and refresh-
ments. A. D. Moore, assistant profes-
sor of electrical engineering, will be
master of ceremonies.
Entertainment and busiess sessions
will take place Friday and Saturday,
the meetings being terminated by the
annual convention banquet at the
Union Saturday night, at which Prof.
Henry H. Higbie, of the department of
electrical engineering, will give an
address. All student, alumni, and
faculty members of the local chapter
will attend the smoker and banquet.

New plans for the exterior archi.
itecture of the proposed general lit-
erary building, subject to criticism by
alumni and members of the faculty,
will be drawn immediately by Archi-
tect Albert Kahn, of Detroit. The de-
cision to change the plans was reach-
ed' after suggestions by alumni and
faculty men who had seen the
The exact type of architecture to be
adopted is not yet known. A Gothic
style, proposed by many, was reject-
ed. It was also decided to abandon,
for the time being at least, that part
of the plan which placed the tall me-
morial campanile at the rear of the
structure. Some place on the mall
was proposed as a more logical loca-
tion for the campanile.
On Line With Memorial Hall
The front of the building, it is ex-
pected, will be on a line with the front
of Alumni Memorial hall; thus pre-
serving the symmetry on the west side
of the campus. The interior of the
building will not be changed, it is
thought, by the alterations on the ex-
terior design. No radical depprture
from the general policy which has
guided the planning of other struc-
tures, simplicity and maximum effi-
ciency, with large and spacious class-
rooms, is to be made.
The revisions of the sketches will be

Considerable discussion has arisen
as a result of a bill, submitted in the
state legislature by Governor Groes-
beck, 'proposing the vesting of more
power in the office of fuel adminis-
trator. As the bill reads at present,
the administrator or an'y deputies ap-
pointed by him, will have full power
to confiscate, or regulate the price of
all coal in the state of Michigan. This
means that private persons as well
as dealers will be subject at all times
to the dictation of the fuel admins-
The bill has been strongly protest-
ed by coal interests throughout the
state who, it is said, regard the meas-
ures proposed by the bill as entirely
too strong.
Local Opinon Expressed
Several local coal dealers, when
asked their opinion of the proposed
bill, expressed the opinon that, al-
though 'the bill had its good points,
its bad effects would more than coun-
teract the good.
Mr. H. R. Beuhler of the Ann Ar-
bor Fuel company said, "The bill as
it now stands provides that the fuel
administrator will be given power at
the discretion of the governor for an
indefinite period of time, whenever
the governor deems it necessary. It
is this that we are seeking, mainly, to
change. We hope to have introduced
an amendment providing that the
coal administration will not continue
after March 31, 1923. There is no
doubt that the bill will be passed, but
we hope that this and several other
amendments will be made before the
legislature finally acts on it."
Another dealer said that the bill
was unnecessary, that no administra-
tion, no matter how efficient would
be able to remedy the present condi-
tion, "for," he said, "the present sit-
uation is not due to a shortage o
coal, but is due to the lack of trans-
portation facilities. Until the rail-
road situation is cleared up, it will
be difficult to get coal in sufficient

Students of Dramatic " Ability
Included in Casts of Wide

Five acts, produced by members of
'he Mimes 'of the Michigan Union,
will be presented at the first of the
weekly programs to be produced at
Mimes theater throughout the year
tomorrow and Saturday night. The
acts selected for this opening are of
a wide variety and include in their
casts students who have done dra-
matic work on the campus previously.
"In the Morgue," a one act play,
is the feature piece of the evening's
entertainment. The play is being
produced under the direction of Carl
Gusky, grad., who will also take one
of the prominent parts in the piece.
Gusky will be remembered as play-
ing the part of "Nemo, king of No-
where," in last year's opera, "Make It
for Two," and a part in "The Clois-
ter," produced last spring at the
Mimes theater. He has. done work
with Sam Hume while the latter was
in Detroit.
Johson to Sing
James Johnson, '23, with - Rhodes
orchestra, is scheduled as the second!
number on the week-end program.
Johnson has had wide experience as
an entertainer, having placed several
acts before Mimes' audiences last
year, as well as singing at band
bounces and other campus affairs. He
will be. accompanied in his act by
Rhodes orchestra of seven pieces.
A novelty actrwhichsis shrouded in
mystery will be produced by Buckley
C. Robbins, '23, and C. James Dres-
bach '24, and company. Little is
known of the company but both the
principals have pasts in campus
dramatics. Dresbach was the "Poet"
in "Make It for Two" and has taken
part in several Comedy club produc-
tions. Robbins has appeared several
times at the Mimes theater.
Will Dance Argentine Tango
An interpretation of the Argentine
tago will be give by Germano and
Feinseth, both of whom have studied
dancing abroad. Feinseth will take
the female part. The last act on the
program will be several airs by the
Midnight Sons quartette, members of
the Glee club. This quartette was one
of the features on the University band
trip throughout the' state last spring.
Tickets for both the tomorrow and
Saturday performances will go on sale
this morning at the box office of the
Mimes theater. All seats will be re-
served and the admission is 50 cents.
The performances will start at 8

track star will speak at Traditions
ceremony tonight at Hill auditorium.
| Evens Presents
ITwilight Recital's
Harry Russel Evans, of the School
of Music faculty, surpassed all his
previous performances at an affair of
the kind, in the second of the 'Twilight
Organ recitals yesterday afternoon in
Hill auditorium.
His program was most delightful
and interesting, ranging from the most
conservative of organ music, that of
Bach, to compositions that were hard-
ly classical, as the Fantasia on Scotch
Guilmant's Sonata in C minor, with
its alternate loud and soft passages,
as of declarations and protests follow-
ing each other, and its second move-
ment in dreamy adagio style, Mr. Ev-
ans played with a finish that was mas-
His performance of Federlein's Sal-
vadora, with its beautiful but simple
solo melody, expressively phrased,
was remarkable in the perfect clear-
ness, yet smoothness in the rocking,
lulling figure of the accompaniment.
Bach's attractive Prelude and Fugue
in C minor was played in dramatic
style, and the interwoven voices of
the brilliant fugue were unspoiled by
any muddiness or overbalancing of
Cardillo's Catar'i! Catari!, quite
simple in its theme, was made more
stirring by the minor mode and the
warmth and feeling which Mr. Evans
played into it.
The triumph of the concert, both in
performance and appreciation, was
reached in MacFarlane's Fantasia on
Scotch Airs, a most remarkable ar-
rangement, showing the practically
unlimited possibilities of the organ. Its
high contrasts, weird but fascinating
harmonies, artistic transitions, and
well-known melodies lost enone of
their charm under Mr. Evans' per-
formance. R. A. H.
Dr. Wilbert B. Hinsdale, former dean
of the Homoeopathic Medical school
was elected president of the University
club recently.
The University club is composed of
faculty members, and prominent
business men and ministers of Ann
Arbor. The club is located in the
basement of Alumni Memorial hall,
where meetings are held on the first
Friday of each month. As in prev-
ious years, discussions and chess, bil-
liards and pool tournaments for mem-
bers will be held.

Vernon Hillery, 25L, Student Connell
Head,, Prof, William A. Frayer
Are Other Speakers
Celebration of the fifth annual Tra-
ditions Day ceremony will be held at
7:30 tonight in Hill auditorium. The
committee has completed all arrange-
ments for the affair and is confident
that it will be a huge success'
'The program, as was planned, is
short and snappy including speeches
by Carl Johnson, '20, former Michigan
track star, Professor William A. Fray-
er, of the history department, and Ver-
non F. Hillery, 25L, president of the
Student Council.
The band will open the meeting,
while the crowd is being seated, and
will be -followed by the Varsity cheer-
leader, William H. Frankhauser, '22L,
who will lead the entire assembly in
Hillery Speaks First
Vernon F. Hillery, '23, will be the
first 'speaker of the evening, epre-
senting sthekstudenthbody. As presi-
dent of the Student Council he will
outline to the freshmen what Michi-
gan traditions are, their origin and
their significance to all Michigan men.
At the close of his speech the band,
glee club, and students will join in
singing "The Victors". The words will
be flashed on the screen for the bene-
fit of any new men who have not yet
learned all of the verses.
Professor William A. Frayer, of the
history department, who has been se-
lected as the faculty speaker, will then
be introduced. It is epected,that he
will touch upon different phases of
University life of interest to all stu-
dents, and of vital importance to the
freshmen. "Varsity," lead by the band
and glee club will be sung at the eon-
clusion of his address.
Johnson Represents Alumni-
Carl Johnson '20, will represent the
alumni. Johnson is widely known as
one of the greatest track men Michi-
gan has produced, and it is expected
that he will bring a valuable message.
The reason for Michigan's traditions,
it is anticipated, will have an import-
ant place in hi~s speech as well as the
meaning of Michigan' to a man who
.has passed out of his Alma Mater.
The committee stresses the point
that Traditions Day is not an affair
chiefly for the freshmen. They, are
given certain privileges it is true, for
it is the day upon which they are in-
itiated into the traditions and spirit
of Michigan, but the purpose of the
affair is to make it an All-Michigan
day, a day upon which al of the
classes can come together, not only
to help teach the freshmen all of the
vital things that they should know, but
one on which they should again dedi-
cate themselves to thepreservation of
Michigan and her traditions.
The doors of'the auditorium will be
opened at 7 o'clock and the meeting
will, begin promptly at 7:30. Fresh-
men are asked to come early as the
front section on the ground floor has
been reserved for them. 'The other
classes are expected to fill the re-
mainder of theauditoriaum.
The Varsity band and glee club will
occupy the platform during the en-
tire performance. They will lead In
all of the songs, and it is possible that
the Glee club will give a few songs

Progressiveness Aired In
Freshman Number Of Chimes

(By Leo J. Hershdorfer)
Freshmen usually receive much pet-
ting, patting-on-the-back and advice-
the-mill during the first few weeks of
the semester, but it remained for
Chimes in its first issue, which ap-
peared on the campus yesterday, to
concentrate it all in one neatly bound
volume for the beneficiaries.
The October Chimes, heralded as
the Freshman Number, has about it an
air of progressiveness, promising well
for the future. It is expected of each
issue that it will surpass the preced-
ing one, and if by the end of the year
this ambition will have been realized,
the editors may well look back upon
their first number as a good beginner.
The cover is well executed, and
though it lacks the professional touch,
compares favorably with the art work
of other college publications. The
frontspiece, too, is a fine bit of carica-
ture, while the other drawings are
scattered thrnnerhout the ma-:zine

Ise is well worth reading and worthy
of careful digestion-it is not a spicy
m'orsel for easy swallowing.
What is probably the most inter-
esting contribution, however, is the
anonymous mind-disturber entitled
"A Farce or an Actuality?" The writ-
er has struck a note-and a high
one at that-which has long awaited
public expression. He daringly pre-
sents the main faults with our sup-
posedly Utopian system of student
government, hinting that perhaps fac-
ulty interferance is making for less-
ening of student power. This article
will undoubtedly cause much comment
in the next few days.

Enrollment in the R. 0. T. C. is be-
low normal, according to Major John

roster of the R. 0- T. C., including new
enrollments and names carried over
from last semester, shows an increase
of 10. In a number of courses, aca-
demic and other difficulties may cause
a reduction in present figures unless
additional men enroll this week.
Fewer members of this year's fresh-
