Meeting at 10 o'clock this morning
on Ferry field, the men of '25 and '26
will clash in battle royal for the phys-
ical, supremacy of their classes. For

To win the fall games, at least twq
of the three events must be taken.
The committee called especial atten-
tion to the fact that there will be no
slugging, kicking or biting allowed.

(By Associated Press)
IElyria, 0., Nov. 17.-Funeral serv-
ices for William Graves Sharp, for-

was 63 years of age, died shortly be-I

Soph Class Spirit
Enriches Junior
one student at least in the 'Univer-
sity is ready to concede that class
spirit has its practical as well as its
spiritual value. His name is G. A.
Wilcox, and he is a junior in the en-
gineering school.
Early yesterday afternoon sopho-
mores, meandering about the campus
in search of "fresh meat," discovered
that sometime during a lapse of vig-
ilance on the part of the class of
'25, the freshmen had hoisted a flag
on the pole that stands between th
Natural Science and Chemistry build-
sings. Immediately there was a clam-
or for the removal of the "rag." The
shouts for aid, however, were more
audible than the cries of those seek-
ing to "shin" the pole.
Then Wilcox appeared. With the aid
of the sophomores he broke the de-
fense that surrounded the pole and
gradually worked his way up it with-
in reaching distance of the, flag. He
descended amidst the shouts of his,
followers, who immediately set about
to take up a collection. The pot net-
-ed $30 - for new skin according to
That was one of many clashes be-

for Recent Wounds
Settlement has been made with The-
odore C. Reissing and Philip H.
Goldsmith, '23E, the students who
were respectively shot and assaulted
while in Carey, Ohio, on their return'
trip from the Ohio State game at Co-
lumbus, by authorities of the village
in which the shooting took place, ac-
cording to J. A. Bursley, Dean of Stu-
dents, who has been investigating the
Reissing who is almost fully re-
covered 'from the wound which he re-
ceived is to get $1,000 for his injuries
and'Goldsmith who suffered severe
wounds on the head from blows given
him by Officer Edward'Gibbs, is to re-
ceive $10)..
Moreover, the fines amounting to
$110 which were collected from the
24 men wh' were implicated in the
affair. will be refunded to the men.
Andrew -Greer and Edward Gibbs,
the officers who were responsible for
the affair, both the wounding of Reis-
sing and the assault and battery of
Goldsmith, have been indicted by the
Grand Jury' and are out on bail.
Greer has been released on $2,00
bail, and Gibbs has been released on
$500 bail.
These men will come up for trial
in the. .near future, Greer being
charged with shooting with intent to
kill, maim and wound, and with as-
sault and battery. Gibbs is charge1
with assault and battery and the
pointing of a loaded firearm. The
latter charge against Gibbs is a
criminal offense in Ohio.
The . trials of the two men have
been postponed this late in order to
allow- time enough' for .Reissing to
recover sufficiently from his wound
to make the trip to Upper Sandusky,
where it will, be held.
In addition to the financial settle-
ments, Carey sent a resolution to the
University, through President Marion
L. Burton, expressing regret at the
incident and condemning the actions
of these men.
Athletic programs for the Michigan-
Wisconsin game went on sale yester-
day afternoon. The programs are in
magazine form and contain 48 pages
of material relating to football. They
sell for 25 cents.
As only 12,000 copies have been
printed, students are especially urged
.to, buy in the morning campus sale
This will not only facilitate the sale
before the game in the afternoon, but
will enable the students to be' sur
of obtaining his copy.

Hill Auditorium Will Be Scene'
Free Moving Picture Show



"The spirit of the team tomorrow.
will be the spirit that you, the stu-
dent body of Michigan, put back of
it," was the message that President
Marion L. Burton brought last night
to the huge audience which filled Hill
auditorium at the Wisconsin pep
meeting. The necessity for good
sportsmanship, the kind of sportsman-
ship that fights against difficulties was
the main point of his speech.
Although President Burton admit-
ted that last night was his first ap-
pearance before the student - body
with his coat off, his enthusiasm
quickly proved that he was one in
spirit with the body to which he
spoke, and his words were greeted,
time after time, with applause and
cheers. His speech though short, was
directl? to the point, and showed the
audience that from the President
down, the whole University was be-
hind Michigan in its championship
Little Decries Overconfidence
A plea for continued spirit which
should follow the team in all its
games whether 'they be victories or
defeats, ws made by George Little,
assistant coach of the football tean:
Coach Little said that he came to the
University expecting an overwhelm-
ing spirit and he found it here, but
he could only judge the quality of
that spirit by seeing the student body
and alumni behind a losing team. He
brought out the strength of the Wis-
consin team, speaking of the qualifi-
cations of several of the opposing
players, and warned Michigan against
being overconfident of the outcome of
today's game.-
Arthur Curtis, '11, brought home to
the younger Michigan generation the
spirit of the "olden, golden days of
Michigan" and told how the alumni
watched' the rise and fall of Michigan
achievements with even mqre inter-
est than the students themselves. He
dwelt on the glories ' of - Michigan
championships "when Michigan ruled
the West" and expressed strong
hope of eeing a repetition of the
old victors. The speakers -were, in-
troduced by Marion B. Stahl, '25L.
Free Movles to Be Shown
After the meeting free moving pic-
tures were shown in Hill auditorium
by the courtesy of the Majestic and
Arcade theaters. . Tomorrow night
more free moving pictures will be
shown there also by courtey of the
same theaters. "The performance will
begin at 7:30 o'clock and will include
two new features especially procured
for the occasion.
This will be the first affair of its
kind, at Hill auditorium. since' two
years ago this fall when a similar
event was conducted by the same
management at the homecoming game
with Chicago. The auditorium was
procured for this evening by the Stu-
dent council, which has, turned it
over to the Bijou people, so that a
larger number can enjoy the per-
formance than if both theaters were
to give complimentary shows.
