London, Nov. 11.-Sir Eric Geddes
did some very plain talking about Ger-
man reparations as the guest of the
Thirty Club, of London, recently. This
club is an association of advertising
experts. -When in Parliament, Sir
Erie was noted for his straightfor-
ward style of speech, and since he be-
FRESHMEN OVERSEERS ASKED
TO RETURN FURTHER REPORTS
An innovation was introduced in the
drive for life membership this year
by the Michigan Union when the Up-
perclass Advisory committee secured
the assistance of the upperclass advis-
ers in urging 'their yearlings to take
out life memberships when solicited.
The Upperclass Advisory committee,
prior to the time of the drive, sent
letters to all of the upperclass advis-
ers, numbering more than 350, asking
them to urge the freshmen over whom
they had charge to sign up life mem-
berships this year, and to show their
men why they ought to do this. In-
closed in these letters were stamped
post cards on which the advisers, were
asked to make a report of the success
of their interviews with the year-
More than 80 per cent of these post
cards have been returned, and have
reported favorable success in the ad-.
visers' convincing their men of the
value of a life membership. The rest
of the advisers are asked to give their
reports at once.
came a business man again he is more
outspoken than ever.
"In 1918 I was a politician," he said,
"and I said then that we should not
make a fetish of reparations; that we
might find reparations a boomerang,
and that the demanding of great sums
from Germany might be bad. I nearly
lost my seat over that statement, and
I had to" hedge a bit."'
He was under no necessity of doing
any hedging before the Thirty Club,
he continued. "What I said in 1918 has
come absolutely true now," he de-
clared. We were absolutely wrong, as
allies, in trying to get the last penny
because it is not there.
"It is no use chasing. a mirage. You
can only get reparations out of Ger-
many by either money or goods. She
has no money, and If you take her
goods it will mean unemployment here.
If the leaders of thought could bring
that home to our people, it would be
a good thing for this country.
"I have just come from. Germany.
They are desparate there. There will
never be a strong government until'
the people know that they can man-
age their own affairs. Until we and
our allies come down to bed-rock,
find out what Germany can pay, and
tell them .so,. there will be no im-I
provement. When'we do that Germany
will try to pay, if possible. But you
cannot enslave a nation of seventy
millions for generations."

ROOMS ARE PROTIDE
FOR WISCONSIN GAMf"E
UNION WILL LIST AVAILABLE
QUARTERS FOR WEEK-END
- .- a
Although many rooms are still
needed to accomodate the visitors
coming here for the Wisconsin game,
yet the Union committee in charge
has arranged a system whereby the
out-of-town people can be provided
rooms with the aid of the Ann Arbor
residents. The urgent need of rooms
cannot better be shown than by the
fact that more than 42,000 tickets for
the Wisconsin game have already been
sold, and that standing room tickets
are still on sale.
The need for rooms is furthr shown
by the fact that the rooms at the Un-
ion were rented out some weeks ago
for the day of the game, and for the
day preceding it, and also through the
fait that 41 letters have been received
by the Union from alumni who want
rooms for the nights of Nov. 1 8and 19.
Available rooms for the nights men-
tioned are to be listed with the room-
ing committee through the telephone
operator at the Union. So far only, 50
rooms have been listed with the com-
mittee, while probably as many as 150
more will be needed. These rooms,
listed will be arranged by the con-
mittee and distributed to the visitors
Nov. 17 and 18, on which days the
committee will take care of the work
from 9 to 12 o'clock in the morning
and from 1 to 5 o'clock in the after-
noon at the desk in the main lobby of
the 'Union. It is probable that some
one will. be at the desk from 7 to 9
o'clock in the evening these days.

"NOODYWINS A WAR"
OWSLEY OUTLINES VETS' IiEALS
iN NEBRASKA CAPITOL DEDI-
CATION SPEECH .
Lincoln, Neb., Nov. 11.-When free
men go out to battle it is the winning
of peace they fight for, as "there is
no such thing as the winning of a
war," Alvin Owsley, the new national.
commander of the American Legion,
said here today in an address dedicat-
ing Nebraska's new capitol.
"Death and ruin are the stakes in
the game of war," he said; "ruin and
death are the price men pay for peace
whenever that spirit of destruction
breaks its bonds. The ending of warf
is a great thing, but the beginning of
peace is a greater thing; for with the
coming of a just peace the maren of'
mankind is taken up again, mminkind
going forward step by step to better
things. Not as the day of the making
of an end, but as the day of the be-
ginning of a great endeavor, let us
observe this anniversary.
"On this day of days I am here withs
you, joyful in heart, to pledge the1
mind and soul of the American Legion
to all good efforts of constructive citi-
zenship. We have sanctified our com-
radeship through honor to our dead,
'and through the last full measure of
devotion to our disabled; and that de-1
votion to our disabled shall maintaint

WEEK FOR NATIONAL EFFORT TO
COMBAT DISEASE STARTS
This week has been.set aside as na-
tional cancer week by the American
Society for the Control of Cancer. A
nation-wide campaign of education is
f being conducted by' this .,society
through which it is hoped to bring to
the attention of the public.the facts
about this disease. In connection with
this movement, Prof. Reuben Peter-
son of, the department of obstetrics
and gynecology, Michigan chairman
of the society, will deliver an address
on "Cancer, a Preventable Disease," at
7:30 o'clock Thursday night in the
west amphitheater, eMdical' building.
Facts about this disease gathered
by Dr. J. L. Campbell are as follows:
If an early cancer is completely re-
moved, it will not return.
There is a time when every cancer
can be cured, for it exists in a stage
known by scientific men as "precan-
Cancer is first a lump or sore that
can be felt with the finger or seen
with the eye or gives certain definite
warnings. If we knew how to inter
pret these warnings, cancer would be
Nine cases out of ten do not cause

Cancer starts as the result of long-
continued irritation. If irritation is re-
moved, cancer will not develop.
Cancer develops at the edge of a
scar-where the scar and normal tis-
sue meet. It the scar is removed, can-
cer wtll not develop.
Certain definite symptoms precede
every, cancer, just as surely as wind
clouds precede the rain storm. The'
time is coming when these symptoms
will bo heeded.
One hundred thousand people an-
nually in the United States are afflict-
ed with some form of cancer, accord-
ing to the public health service.
, One woman in every eight, ,who is
over 40 years of age, dies of cancer.
Three times as many women 'as men
die with cancer between the ages of
35 and 45. From that time on, the
ratio is more nearly equal.,
Every person over 35 years of age
who is not sure about a. lunp, sore or
unnatural discharge, should' consult
a competent physician and demand a
thorough examination. If the first
doctor consulted cannot give a ration-
al opinion, ask for a consultation.
r Procrastination has cost the loss of
many valuable lives.
Any doctor who tells you that he
has a sure cure for cancer is a fraud.
There is no such thing as a cancer
serum, or any remedy that will cure
cancer by being injected into the
veins, or rubbed on the skin.
