Armistice Conference set for Oct.
As Military Situation Grows
More Serious

Decrease In Registration Caused Ser-
ous Anxiety to Owners
That the rooming house situation is
becoming serious is the opinion of
members of the Union housing com-
mittee. The large number of un-
occupied rooms has caused a consid-
erable dro in room rent.,and many
landladies who have ordinarily had
14 and 15 roomers have been unabla
to fill .their houses.
The oversupply cif rooms this fall
is largely due, it is said, to the un-
epcted decrease in the registration
at the University. Many new houses
were built this summer by those who
anticipated an increase in this year's

cated in Dean Joseph A. Butrsley's

Activities, Rousing British Wrath, to
Cease Beyond Three-Mile

The Turkish situation reached an-
other critical stage today.
Kemal's reply to the Allies has been
made known at Constantinople by his
a'ide-de-camp and is an acceptance
of proposed conditions with the in-
sistence that Turkish military move-
ments shall proceed and that Russia,
Bulgaria and Persia shall be admitted
to the proposed peace conference.
The military situation has become
increasingly serious. The Turkish
forces have occupied Kium Kalesi, at
"the moth uf the Dadanelles, com-
manding the entrance to the Straits,
with a cavalry force. Another Na-
Rionalist cavalry force, 3,000 strong, is
at Eren Keui, 10 miles from the British
lines at Chanak.
Soviet Russia has sent a note to
the Allied Powers, the Balkan States
and Egypt, proposing an immediate
Near Eastern conference in the hope,
it says, of saving Southeastern Eu-
rope from a threatened new outbreak
of bloodshed, and giving warning that
Russia will refuse to recognize amy
decision regarding! the Dardanelles
to which she is not a party.
Conference to Be Oct. 2
The armistice conference has been
set by the Allied high command for
Oct. 2, at Mudania.
Constantinople reports growing in-
dications of; the abdication of the
Sultan of Turkey and the selection
of a successor acceptable to Kemal.
Venizelos figures in political dis-
cussions at Athens. The former Pre-
mier is mentioned as one of the mem-
bers of the Nationalist cabinet which
will seek to reconcile the Constantine
and Venizelist elements in a move-'
ment to .assure a united Greece in this
-critical juncture for the nation.

Paris, Sept. 26.-France is in com-
plete accord with the other Allied
powers in making the strongest ef-
fort to keep the Turks but of the
neutral zbnes and avoiding al inci-
dents, it was explained today, in
official quarters. Gen. .Pelle, the

Russia Sends Warning -
(By Associated Press)
' Moscow, Sept. 26.-Soviet Russia in;
a note addressed to England, France,;
Italy, Greece, Rumania, Jugoslavia,
Bulgaria. and Egypt, designed to find
a solution of the Near East situation,
warns the European Powers against
ignoring the interests of those coun-
,tries directly interested in the free-.
dom of the Dardanelles. The note
reiterates that Russia. will refuse to
'recognize any decision unless she is a;
party to the agreement.
The note, which was dispatched by,
Acting Foreign Minister Karakhan,'
declares that as one of the European
. powers is taking proper steps to pre-
vent developments which appear{
likely to draw the entire series of ,
countries addressed into war, the'
Soviet government considers that only
an immediate andtpowerfl interve
tiona can lcaize the affair .and pos-
sibly save southeastern Europe from
a new outbreak of bloodshed.
Supports Turk Rights ,
"The Soviet government," says the
note, "considers the basis of events in
the Near East hinges on one ques-
tion, which is recognigoni for the
Turkish people's right to the actual
restoration of Turkish sovereignty
over the Turkish capital of Constan-
inople and the Straits..
"The freedom of the Straits," the
note continues, "is necessary primar-
ily to the Black Sea powers, to Russia
and her allied republics, and to Turk-
ey, these countries embracing the
greater part of the Black Sea coast."
The note details the Russo-Turkish
agreement of 1921, which declared for
the international status of the Straits
for trading purposes. About the time
this agreement was reached, it adds,

War had recognized only their own'

Berlin, Sept. 26.-Independents and
Social Democrats have healed their
differences and have joined in form-
ing a mighty united Socialist party
which will have a bloc of about 180
votes out of 460 in the reichstag, and
a following estimated at more than
a million voters.
The unification took place at Nuren-
berg yesterday. Enthusiastic . ap-
plause echoed through the big Her-
cules velodrome as pledges to work
in unison for the uplift of German
workers were made by Herman
Mueller for the Social Democrats,
Herr Crispien for the Independents,
and Mary Juhacz for the women.
The record of German Socialists
since the war, however, indicates that
pure Socialism is still in the far dis-
tant future. The party is expected to
proceed conservatively, centering its
efforts largely on achieving. desirable
social reforms and insisting particu-
larly on a better distribution and
price control for food stuffs, cloth-
ing and coal this winter.
The University of Michigan band
played at the International meeting
of the Kiwanis clubs in Toronto,
Can., directly following the com-
menement exercises here in June. Aft-'
er leaving Ann Arbor on June 19 the
first stop was in Detroit, where the.
band of 45 pieces played for the 10-
cal Kiwanis club at its headquarters.
At midnight that .night the party
left for Toronto, where they remain-
ed for three days playing at various
points about the city. Upon one occa-
sion the band gave a concert upon the
steps of the city hall, which was at-
tended by more than 10,000 persons.
Movies were taken of Leader Wilfred
C. Wilson ana the members of the
band in uniform. One of the chief
numbers on the program was thie
concert at a big fair which traced
the history of the country from 1776
and in which 15 bands participated.

Eugineering College Leads in Gain;
Law, Medical Also
Late registration figures last night
show a slight increase in the enroll-
ment of some of the colleges which
brings the total number of students
enrolled in the University over the
11,000 mark.
Registration in all of the schools
except the Graduate school officially
closed Monday night but delinquent
arrivals coming in during all of
Tuesday have brought the total mark
up to within a little over a hundred
of last year's record.' This would
seemingly indicate that if the delin-
quencies keep coming in at the same
rate as they did yesterday a new reg-
istration mark may be set.
Engineers Lead
Some of the schools could not give
out any figures for the day. The Col-
lege of Engineering and Architecture
led with 62 new arrivals during the
day, bringing its total to 1,759. The
Law school counted an increase of 26
while the Medical college took in 24
more. This brings their total counts
up to 395 and 640, respectively. The
Law school now tops its enrollment of
last year by an even 60 registra-
tions. The mark set last year was
No report was given out by the
Literary college or by the dental
school, Graduate school or School of
Education. The former has an en-
rollment which it is thought is still
under that of last year but the to-
tals of the other schools are all high-
er than they have ever been..
1I,001 Now Recorded
Up to last night an approximate
count of 11,001 was recorded. The
total enrollment of last year after all
registration was over 11,120. Both of
these figures include the Summer ses-
Registration and .classifi;catioh in
the Graduate -school will continue all
of this week. Those who register in
the other school for the rest of the
week will be fined $5 for delinquency
and $1 for classification.

Was Known for His Charges in Con-
nection with Recent War
Washington, Sept. 26.-United States
Senator Thomas E. Watson, of Georgia,
died suddenly at his home here early
today. 'Death was said to be.due to
an acute attack of asthma. from which
he had suffer'ed recurrently for some
Although failing health had .inter-
rupted Senator Watson's attendance
at Senate sessions frequently in the
last several months, he was in his
seat Friday when the Senate ad-
journed, and his friends believed he
was then showing improvement. He
was stricken suddenly after dinner
last night and passed away shortly
after 3 a. m. today. He was 66
years old.
Was Vigorous Figure
During the first year and a half
of his term in the Senate, to which
he was elected in 1920 after receiving
the nomination over Senator Hoke
Smith and Gov. H. M. Dorsey, Senator
Watson gave no indication of any im-
pairment of the vigor and activity
which had marked his long career
in politics and as a publisher. In his
last speech in the Senate, delivered
only a week ago last Wednesday, the
Georgia senator severely criticized
the Administration for its course in
connection with the rail strike situa-
tion. His previous attacks on the
Administration and most notably his
charges of illegal hangings in the
American Expeditionary Forces, the
subject of exhaustive investigation by
a Senate committee, had made him a
conspicuous figure in the Senate body
during his brief service there.
Buried Tuesday.
The body of the Senator will be
taken to his home at Thomson, Ga..
today at 3:15 p. m. He already had
made reservations on a train leaving
at 'that time to spend the congres-
sional vacation at ,his home. The
Senator leaves a widow and two
Although having served only a
short time in the Senate, Senator Wat-
son's oratory and fiery attacks in leg-
islation he opposed, added to his na-
tional prominence gained in his home
state. He was an historical expert,
his Senate speches being rich with
incidents of history, particularly
French, of which he was a great

Of Its Kind In The United
Work on the new Michigan Fek
House is advancing as fast as thear-
rival of the consignments of steel wil]
permit. To date seven cars of steel
have .arrived and many more are ex-
pected to arrive any time in the near
future although shipping conditions
are very uncertain
Bases for the. steel, which are made
of concrete, were poured a number
of weeks ago. They are three feet
deep and a foot in thickness, laying
some ten feet apart throughout the
entire length of the building. It is
believed that these concrete founda-
tions will be more substantial than
any of stone or other material that
could have been used.'
Strikes Cause Delay
Railroad strikes and the uncertain-
ty of the arrival of the steel ship-
ments have been the main cause in
the three months delay. The pro-
gress was further hindered last sum-
mer when the steel was unable to be
rolled on time. .I
More than a million bricks are to
be used in the outer walls and the
inside foundations and as yet none
of these have appeared in Ann Arbor.
While commenting on the progress
of the new Field House, Fielding H.
Yost, director of major and minor out-
door Varsity sports, said, the work
has been delayed so long on the build-
ing that it is now over three months
behind time. Operations may not be-
gin to take on very large proportions
until next spring when the outdoor
track season starts. Everything will
depend upon the amount of snow that
falls this winter and the arrival of
the basic materials. The new ath-
letic plant will probably be ready by
Superiority is Keynote
Superiority is the keynote of the
new field-house. The structure will
be superior in construction, sueprior
in seating capacity, and superior in
usefulness to anything of its kind
in the world.'
The building wll be 342 feet long
by 160 feet wide. There will be a
seating capacity of 12,500, an eight
lap to the mile track, 75 yard straight
away, several basketball courts, and
provisions for practice for indoor
football and baseball. All of this will
be in the main activity room which
will be 160 feet wide, -300 feet long,
and clear of any obstruction up to
the height of 63 feet. These dimen-
sions are exactly those of a regular
football field. Four floors at the end
of the room will be devoted to trophy
rooms, storing rooms, drying rooms,
locker and shower facilities for 4,200,
and the offices of the athletic asso-
Upon its completion the new field
house will be the best and most com-
pletely equipped of any of the ath-
letic plants in America. This build-
ing will put Michigan in a position
to entertain other schools and col-
leges at the large indoor track meets
and will also be an ideal place in
which to hold the annual Conference
Track Meet.
Penurious Youth
Offers Self To
Highest idd er
Cincinnati, Sept. 26-George Ms-
cato, student at the Eclectic Medical
college here, revealed htisef today
as the man who yesterday offered
himself in marriage to "any woman
between the ages of 18 and 3, white
and of good stock, who will finance
my remaining two years in college."
.Muscato asked a Cincinnati news-
paper to help him in his endeavor to
'complete his education. He agreed to
permit the use of his name, although,
he says, he had intended at first to
conceal his identity.

"I am at the end of my rope," he
'said today. "Ambition is too strong to
permit me to drop my efforts for an
education. I can not let pride inter-
vene. I must complete my studies.
There is no other way."
' Muscato said that he had received
a letter from relatives in Pittsburgh
discontinuing his allowance.

visiting here today and will address
the Engineering club smoker tomor-
row night.
Investigation in Official Records
Shows Widespread Car-
New York, Sept. 26.-Sensational ex-
posure of war and post-war grafting
and profiteering is made public in a
seriesof articles prepared for the
American Legion Weekly'.
The articles are the fruit of many,
weeks spent by careful investigators
digging into the official files at Wash-
ington and gathering information in,
various parts of the country with aE
view to demanding prosecution of
guilty men who made millions during
and since the war through criminal;
practices imposed on the Government,
and suits for recovery of their ill-
got gain.
Show Finer Workings,
The articles are intended, it was
announced, to tear aside the veil thatj
has obscured froin the public the
actual workings of the Government'sl
hastily built war machine during the
conflict, and its just as hastily built.
machine for liquidating old obliga-,
tions and returning to normal en-
deavor after the armistice.
Care is taken by the author of the
articles, Marquis James, however, to 1
make it plain that the great majority
of men who were cogs in the great'
industrial 'machines were imbued by{
the highest patriotic motives, and that
to the great majority no hint of cor-
rupt practices or dishonest intent cana
be charggd.?
"These articles will deal with finan-"
cial losses sustained by the Govern-'
ment during the war," the article'
states. "They are not intended as a
reflection on the thousands of men
who had no part in these losses, any1
more than the fact that we have crim-.
inal courts is to be taken as an.
implication that all men are criminals
and that human nature is not gener-°
ally inclined to be law-observing."
Shows Strong Contrast
Presenting in the way of striking.
contrast the case of an 18-year-old.
private in France who was sentenced
to a year and a day at Fort Leaven-
worth for the theft of a 16-cent can
of army beans, and the meticulous
exactness of the Go'ernmen: in hold.-
ing officers to strict accountability for.
war materials consigned to the care
of their men as requisites of fighting,
the first article pictures a saturnalia
of profit grabbing by unscrupulous
"men who remained at home," made
possible by Government laxity.

Dean Cooley Cals Guest "Most Dis-
tinguished Man to Come
This Year"
"Perhaps the most distinguished
man to visit the University this year"
was the characterization given to
Rear Admiral Charles B. Plunkett
yesterday by Dean Mortimer E. Coo-
ley of the engineering school. Ad-
miral Plunkett outside of his fame
has a particular interest here be-
cause many of the meni in the Univer-
sity Naval Training Units here dur-
ing the war served under the com-
mander in France when he was in
charge of the great 14 inch railroad
mount guns of the United States
The war hero arrived here yester-
day afternoon and spent much of the
afternoon with Dean Cooley, Pro'.
H. W. Miller of the department of:
mechanism, ,-and drawing depart-
ment, a lieutenant colonel in the U.
S. Army in charge of the investiga-
tion of the German long range guns
in Belgium, and William 'A. Cotton,
Jr., '23, president of the Enginerling
During the afternoon conference in
Dean Cooley's office yesterday after-
noon, .Admiral Plunkett expressed his
strong approval ' of the proposed
"Navy Day." "If I were going to
run the thing," said the Admiral, "I
would have a naval officer address
every high school and college In the
country to tell the young men what
the navy is for and that joining the
navy is not a waste. of time in com-
parison with the workk of their school-
mates who are entering civil life."
Approives "Navy Day"
Admiral Plunkett i, brought here
>y Cotton, primarily to speak at the
Engineering society smoker to be
held at 7:30 o'clock Thursday in the
Michigan Union on the topic "Per-
sonal Experiences." Plunkett is one
of several noted men that have been
and will be brought to the campus by
the Engineering society. Last year
Eddie Rickenbacker, .femous Ameri-
can ace, and Howard B. Coffin, of
the Hudson Motor Car company and
well known authority on aviation
questions, spoke under the auspices
of the society.
Admission to hear these speakers,
including the smoker tomorrow night,
is free to members of the Engineering
society, while all otheas must pay 35
cents. All men on the campus are in-
vited-to attend.
In addition to the smoker talk given
by Rear Admiral Plunkett, Dean Mor-
timer E. Cooley has succeeded in ob-
taining him to address the Freshmen
engineers in their smoker at 11
o'clock this morning in room 348 of
the Engineering building, on the nb-
ject "Gaining a Toehold." Plunkett
is a strong advocate of the college
man and stresses the idea that 'every
man should finish his education so
that he may better , serve the world.
The Admiral will also speak be-
fore the general campus at 415 tli°s
afternoon in Natural Science audi-
torium on "Fourteen Inch Railroad
Units in France: Their Design, Con-
'Zruetion, Mamnzufacture(, Transorta-
ticn and Operation." The lecture will
be illustrated by two reels of motion
pictures which Admiral Plunkett has
brought with him. All members of
the University are invited to attend.
