Maron B. Stahl, James W. Hume,
Class Presldents, Councilmen
Will Speak
Two mammoth pep meetings, one for
the men of '25, and one for the class
of '26, will be held this afternoon and
evening in final preparation for the an-
nual fall conflict between freshmen
and sophomores to be held at 10
o'clock next Saturday morning. The
sophomores will gather at 7:30 o'clock
in the auditorium of the Physics
building, while the freshmen will meet
at 5 'clock in the Natural Science
auditorium. Both meetings will begin
promptly at the appointed hour.
According to the committee in
charge of arrangements, It is impera-
tive that all men tutrn out, as all rules
and reulations with rega'd to the
games will be made clear, and. the
formal organization of the classes, for
the contest, will be made at this time.
Captains and lieutenants will also be

Hume, '23, will be the ncipal speak-
ers. They will be followed by W. C.
Rice, '23L, who will explain the games
as they are to be played this year.
The presidents of the sophomore lit
and sophomore engineering classes
wil say a few words. An attempt will
also be made at this time to organ-
ize a sophomore band.
lioey, Steketee to Speak
Two men, Harry D. Hoey, '24, and
). W. Steketee, '24, will talk ti the
yearlings. They will explai the sig
nificance of the gamesIto the uew
men, and will outline the history of
this, one of Michigan!s. oldest tradi-
tions. As in the sophomore meet, a
councilman will be present to explain
the games as then are to be played,.
and to lay down all rules with regard
to them.
There will be three games this fall,
in which the rival classes will be giv-
en an opportunity to try their iet-
tie.' The first, known as Athe flag rush,
is already familiar to the members of
the class of '25, having been used last
fall. In this the freshnlen~will guard
three poles, from which fly their class
colors, from the onslaughts of their'
SR laty Instead of Obstacle Race
Due to inability to procure the
proper equipment; it has been found
necessary to change the econd con-.
tet, which was to have been an obsta-
cle race, to a rela y race. Three teams
of 10 men each will be chosen for this
event front each class. The side win-
ning the best two out of three heats
will be considered the winner.
The pillow fight, which will be u d
for the first time this fall since that
of 1920, will be the third and last of
the games. Each combatant in this
contest will be mounted on a high saw
horse, and armed with a large pillow.
It is his duty to unseat his opponent,
using nothing but his pillow for the
purpose. There will be three pairs of
players fighting at one time. As in the
relay race, the side winning two out
of three rounds will be considered
winner of the event.

For the freshman, the grey toque

and that, in this capacity, he is
a fully privileged Michigan man.
His is a post of honor, to guide
the freshman and to teach him
the value and importance of

The junior's white toque is
the symbol of pride. It marks
him as an upperclassman, as
one who has a say in the gov-

him there is but one higher
achievement-that of attaining
the title of senior. In the mean-

trust and responsibility.
The senior wears his toque with
a feeling of pleasure - tinged
with sorrow. For him it denotes
the sweet sorrow of parting, of
leaving Michigan. It recalls to
him the vision of his other years
in the University-of the time

on Dec. 4 and play throughout the week

Narrating incidents of his . early
work at Scotland Yard, of the perilous
four years of war activity, and of the
later efforts to stem the tide of com-
munism in England, Sir Basil Thom-
son, K. C. B., last night in Hill Audi-
torium presented a side. of the war
and its reaction not touched by other
speakers here.
Sir Basil desired, first of all, to clear
up any misconceptions about Scot-
land Yard, pointing out that Scotland
Yard was not a system but the head-
quarters of 19,000 uniformed men and
detectives who operate in London over
a population of more than 8,000,000
people. These men constitute a gov-
ernment force paid by the peers, and
incude 700 =detectives and 150 men
whose special duties are to work on
crimes of the political .type.
D'escribes a Good Detective
The speaker declared that a good
detective must have an efficient or-
ganizaton behind him, that he must
be a hard worker, and that he must
have an intimate knowledge of human,
nature. In this connection Sir Basil,
refuted some of the-old notions popu-
larly entertained that a murderer al-
ways goes back to the scene of his
crime and that criminals becompe con-
science stricken.
Turning toward his work in the war,
Sir Basil asserted that there were two
kinds of spies, patriotic and hired. Of
the former he expressed a belief that
they should be treated as prisoners
of war when captured, rather than be
executed. He said. "There is some-
thing pathetic about them when they
have, played a great' stake and have
. The latter part of Sir Basil's work
had to 'do with the suppression of
the Red activities in England. He
showed the development of commun-
ism in England, Russia, Italy an)
Germany, declaring' that the 90 per-
cent illiteracy compared, with the 2
percent intelligencia and the eigh4
percent middle class accounts for the
relatively long life of communism in
Russia. Lloyd George may attribute
his downfall partly to his determina-
tion to reorganize the Bolsheviki in
Russia, said the speaker.
Sir Basil indicated the danger of
greatly increasing population cramp-
ed. for space. This was one of the
