More than 175 team workers of the

drive to be held today, tomorrow, and
Thursday will this morning begin
their campaign in which they will try
to have 1,400 students sign for life
memberships amounting to approxi-
mately $70,000. Thetmoney realized
from the drive will be used for the
Union building fund.
Details of the campaign were ar-
ranged at a meeting - of all drive
workers held last night at the Union
at which Thomas I. Underwood, 23L
president of the Union, Maynard A
Newton, '22, chairman last year of the
life membership drive committee, and
Calvin 0. Campbell, '24E, this year's
chairman of the drive, spoke on sub-
lects relative to the drive,
All drive members are to meet at
10:15 o'clock on each evening of the
drive to turn in the names of those
students whom they have seen with
the results of their soliciting at the
drive desk in the main lobby of the
Union.
Twenty Teams Will Solicit
Twenty teams each consisting of 10
members and a captain will do the
work of the drive. Every team, mem-
ber has been given a list of 15 stu-
dents listed according to geographic
distribution whom he is to visit before
Friday. Two of the 20 teams will be
known as special teams: "The Faculty
Team" under the direction of J. D.
Briscoe, '24E, whose duty it is to vis-
ii. members of the faculty, and "The.
Flying Squadron" under the direction
of T. G. Crabbe, '24, whose task will
be that of visiting students who de-
clined to subscribe to life member-
ships, or who have failed to see the
reason for taking out such member-
ships.
To the team subscribing the highest
number of life memberships will be
given a steak dinner at the Union, and
to the team member securing the high-
est number of subscriptions will be
awarde the Otto H. Hans silver loving
cup. Also each member of the *11n-
ning team will be given a souvenir
ribbon which will entitle the wearer
to dance at the Union, Nov. 17.

300 SEATS HELD FOR
FACULTY AND STUDENTS
Every available seat ,in Ferry field
for the Michigan-Wisconsin football
game to be held on Nov. 18 has been
sold, was the statement given out last
night by the Athletic association tick-
et department. There ar ow slightly
over 300 students and faculty mem-
bers who have not yet dent in their
applications and the ticket office will
hold seats for them up until Nov. 18.
This means that approximately 40,-
000 tickets have been sold tp to date
almost two weeks before Ithe game.
On Nov. 1 the quota reserved for al-
umni was completely exhausted, more
than 18,000 reservations having al-
ready been made for grads, and it was
estimated that if more tickets had
been available they could have been
sold at the rate of 1,500 a day.
Since then hundreds have been turn-
ed away from the ticket offices and
money returned to more than 1,000
alumni. Student and faculty applica-
tions have all come in except for 300.
One reserved seat is being, held for
each of these student and faculty cou-
pon book holders and may be obtain-
ed until Nov. 18. After this day they1
will be used to help fill the alumni
overdemand.

ESTIMATE NUMBER OF

Foul Air! Prevents Further Rescue)
Work Until Entry Caut
Be Cleared
(By Associated Press)
Spangler, Penn., Nov. 6.-Fifty-five
of the 94 miners who went down into
the Reilly mine of the Reilly Coal
company here this morning, a few
minutes before the working was torn
by an explosion, were unaccounted
for when the rescue crew came up the
shaft at 10:30 tonight and all are be-
lieved to have lost their lives.
Hope that some of the missing men
were still alive was reflected in re-
Sportswhich came to the surface that
a brattice, built of old timbers by
miners after the explosion had cut
off a part of number eight heading to
the left of the main entry, had been
found.
"Look Behind This Wall"
"Look behind this wall", had been
burned in a smooth place on a tim-
ber by an acetylene lamp. Knowing
that experienced miners would take
every means to help their rescuers.
this startling sentence was taken to
mean that the men were still alive.
but no attempt was made tp tear
down the brattice for the mainĀ° entry
was filled with gas, and the United
States bureau of mines engineers
feared that such a course would send (
the deadly poison to where the men,
already weakened by hours of anxi-
ety, and unprotected by oxygen hel-
nits, were hidden.
Gas Kills Canaries
They hoped to have the entry in a 1
short time cleared of gas, when they
said the brattice would be demolished.7
They determined on this course after
one of their canary birds, taken withl
them from Pittsburgh, had died iri
the foul air.
At another point in the mine a c
heavy fall of slate from the roof had
completely clogged the entry. Backe
of it, rescuers declared, they could'
hear voices, and they attacked it vig-
orously, in the hope of finding some J
of the entombed men alive, althoughi
they received no answer to repeatedi
calls.E
Rescuers Work Steadily
Rescue forces were made up of
skilled miners from Spangler and vi-
cinity in charge of engineers from the
United States bureau of mines and the
mine rescue crew of the Cambria
Steel company, which arrived this af-
ternoon. -
They worked unceasingly in shortf
relays, bratticing the working so asr
to move the gas and admit the pure
air from above. No indication as to1
when the work would be completed
was announced.r

the purposeof, electing two ma mbers
to the Student council will be held at

tural Science auditorium.
Due to the filing of a protest tak-
ing exception to certain alleged ir-
regular proceedings, the Student
council has declaredginvalid the elec-

ing was not conducted under the su-
pervision of any members of the coun-

In Order That All May

WILL BAR THOSE NOT PAID
FROM ACTIVITIES OF CLASS
Treasurers of all classes in the en-
gineering and literary colleges with
.he exception of the freshman literary
class will continue to collect dues to-
day. The returns from "Class Dues
Day" yesterday were satisfactory, ac-
cording to Thomas J. Lynch, '25L, but
is was felt that everyone did not have
a chance to pay on account of the
crowds between classes.
The senior literary class collected
the highest amount of any in the Un-
iversity, taking in more than $700.
Less than 50 sophomores and 100 jun-
ior lits had reported by 5 o'clock
when the lit booth in University hall
closed. Approximately 10 per cent of
the students in the engineering col-
lege paid their dues at the table in the
second floor corridor of the Engineer-
ing building.
Classes in the Medical school and
Dental college did not participate in
the general drive, as members have
been solicited by individual subscrip-
tion. Many of the classes in these
schools have more than a 90 per cent
payment to date.
Treasurers of all classes wish it to
be understood that undergraduates
who do not pay their dues will be ex-
cluded from all class activities. It is
desirable that dues be paid in order
that these activities may be commenc-
ed as soon as possible.
Representatives of the lit classes
will be in the booth of University hall
from 9 to 5 o'clock today. Engineer-
ing students may pay their dues in
the second floor corridor of the Engin-
eering building.

will also touch on the relation of the
newdpaper to scientific research,
There will be music during the
luncheon, and it is reported that the
Press club's own newspaper, "The
lorgue," will make its initial appear-
nce at the conclusion of the meeting.
Admission will be by membership

Committee Determined to Recommend
Candidates for Honorary
Degrees
Recommendations which may lead
to the addition of two new members to
the Senate Council, and reports on
current affairs of the University were
brought here before the Senate Coun-
cil and the University Senate in their
regular meetings yesterday.
A proposal originating in the Coun-
cil meeting recommended -that the
dean of women and the assistant to'
the president, Dr. Frank E. Robbins,
be made members of the Senate Coun
cil. Dean Jean Hamilton is a member
of the Senate by action of the Board
of Regents. The recommendation wa
referred to the Senate for final ac-
tion.
Paul L. Buckley, assistant secretary
of the University, was appointed fi-
nancial secretary of the Union to suc-
ceed Prof. Evans Holbrook. The ap-
pointment was made by a committee
consisting of Dean Alfred H. Lloyd
of the Graduate school and Dean Hen-
ry M. Bates of the Law school.
A communication from Prof. Fran-
cis W. Kelsey, suggesting that the Un-
iversity revive the custom of holding
chapel services, was approved unan-
imously by the members of the Senate
council and later referred to the Sen-
ate for consideration. The latter body
placed the matter on the program for
its next meeting, Jan. 15.
Says It Formerly Existed
In his letter to the council, Profes-
sor Kelsey stated that such an insti-
tution formerly existed, and that it
could be restored in the form of pure-
ly non-sectarian services. ;He ,ug
gested that it be held in conjunction
with the Wednesday Twilight recitals,
given by the School of Music, the serv-
ices to consist of choir singing and
an address on a subject n keeping
with the spirit of the meeting and
consistent with the unbiased attitude
of a state institution on religion.
A discussion of the method used in
recommending candidates for honor-
ary degrees at the 1923 Commence-
ment, resulted in a decision to turn
over the work of recording the names
of candidates to a committee to be
appointed by the Senate Council. This
work was done last year by Frank E.
Robbins, assistant . to the President.
The process of receiving recommenda-
tions for degrees from committees of
the University faculties will be used
as in former years. Final action on the
names of the candidates will probably
be taken on Dec. 11.
Bursley Reports Shooting Incident
An amendment to the plan of or-
ganization of the Senate Committee
on student affairs, to- make the mem-
bership of that body rotative, was
brought before the Senate Council
meeting. The amendment was later
referred to the Senate meeting.

port on the shooting of a University
