Many unrented rooms and lowered
room rent is the rooming situation here
following enrollment, according to
Philip Schneider, '24, chairman of the
Union Rooming committee, which be-
came inactive following enrollment
when the work of the committee was
taken over by Dean Bursley's office.r
No particular difficulty was experi-
enced in the work of the committee
this year, Schneider believes, excepting
a little through the failure of men to
list with the committee the addresses
of the quarters which they rented.
A large number of students, who
rented double rooms, and who want
roommates, have listed, their names
with the committee, whose headquart-

Coach Puts Matter of Support
Student Body as Vital

up to

To insure the completeness of the
Student Directory, all new organiza-
tions on the campus have been asked
to hand in cards with their addresses,
names, telephone numbers and the
list of members, to the office of the
I Student Directory in the University
Press building. All such cards must
be in the office by Monday night, Oc-
tober 2.
In addition, each campus organiza-
tion is asked to leave the name and
address of one of its members at the
office to be used for reference. All
fraternities and sororities and house
clubs are asked to send in a complete
list of their members not later than
the above date.
Democratic Convention Deems Time
Inopportune for Endorsement
of Manfuacturer

To bring out enough men to make
a strong reserve football squad is the
purpose of a campaign launched
yesterday by Coach Fielding H. Yost
and his staff. Letters are being cir-
culated to the fraternities and in-
dependent organizations on the
campus appealing for men. All those
who have had any football experience
at all are being asked to report.
Varsity HandIcapped
The weakness of the reserve team
and the comparatively few men that
are contending for positions is a
grave handicap to the varsity at the
present moment, according to Coach
Yost. When the call for men was
made the number reporting wassmall.
More than a hundred 'are trying for
positions on the frehsman team but it
is impossible to use these men in
competition against the varsity more4
than a few times In the season.. Soph-
omores and upper classmen are ap-
pealed to in the campaign, the coach
stated, and it is upon them that the
success of the reserves and varsity
depends. The Ohio State game looms
close ahead, it is pointed out.
The appeal made in yesterday's
Daily brought out only six new men,
increasing the reserve squad to 25.
This immber is far .inadequate for a
squad of this nature, Coach . Fisher,
who has charge of the reserves, states.
In commenting upon the personnel of
those now on the reserve squad the
coach emphasized particularly the
Sof b aikfield men and ends.Jhe
line that is now in operation is of
fairly good caliber, according to his
statement, but the remaining posi-
tions. are poorly filled.
Reserves Glaring Wea-kness
In his appeal the coach says: "Just
now our glaring weakness is in the
reserves. Out of a student body of
over eight thousand only a handful are
reporting for the reserve team-hardly
enough to line up, let alone enough
to make a good team. And right here
is where Michigan spirit meets its real
test. If Michigan spirit means any-
thing it surely means that the Uni-
versity i worth working for. Can it'
be interpreted in terms of work? What
are ycfu doing? Are you making a man
of yourself and building for Michi-
gait on the gridiron, or are you 'let-
ting George do it'?
"Today is the time for action. There:
is no better way for you to serve
Michigan athletics than to report to
Coach Fisher at once. Take it easy,
but work is necessary. Talk accom-
glishes nothing-work beats Ohio
State. "Which do you choose for your
motto?" asks Coach Yost..
Dr. Stevens Urges Them to Raise
Standard of Work by Doing
Prescriptions Only
Preceding his remarks with a brief
outline of the history of the Pharmic
school since its inauguration in the
University more than fifty years ago,
Dr. A. B. Stevens of Escondido, Calif.,
and former dean of the college of
pharmacy, last night encouraged the
students of that school to work to
bring the profession intorepute by
establishing stores that are strictly
prescription stores and not depart-
ment houses.
Dr. Stevens urged the members of
the school first to study the things
for which they were most fitted and
later to strengthen themselves in the
subjects in which they were weakest.
An appeal was made at the close
of the meeting for support of the
Prescott club, an organization of
pharmacy students.

Regents to Work on Dr. Parnall's
Proposal at Meeting Today
But Action Unlikely
Several members of the Board of
Regents held an informal conference
yesterday with President Marion L.
Burton, preliminary to the regular
meeting which will be held tay.
Questions which will be brought be-
fore the meeting were :ot given
out, but it was expected that the ses-
sion would continue throughout the
entire day.
The proposal to establish a school
for nurses in the University which
has caused comment from the mem-
bers of the medical profession in the
state, will probably be discussed but
it was not thought that any definite
action would be taken.
The proposal was made at the last
meeting of the Board of Regents last
year, by Dr. C. G. Parnall, director
of the University hospital.

Vocal, tryouts for the University
Glee clubs. will be held as soon as
possible, the exact date to be an-
nounced probably in Sunday's paper,
according to James C. Stevens, '23,
manager of the clubs. The tryouts
will be held on a competitive basis,
the committee to pass on the tryouts
being the manager, director, and
leader of the clubs. Tryouts for
specialty numbers will see Stevens in
Room 308. in the Union.
Them nadolin club, which was
abolished last spring, will be sup-
planted by a new addition to the club,
the instrunmental section, which will
be headed by Paul Wilson, '23L, and
which will consist of mandolins, vio-
lins, saxophones, flutes, banjos, and
guitas. Frank Thomas will be the
director of the club.
The program for the year, accord-
ing to Stevens, will consist ofa fall
serenade, several week-end trips, tap-
room entertainments, an extended
spring vacation trip, and other events
to be announced later. Efforts are
now under way to make it possible for!
the Glee clubs to entertain at the
meeting on Traditions Night .

Word has been received that the
collection of portraits of distinguished
war leaders of America and the Allies
has arrived in Ann Arbor. The por-
traits are painted by the most eminent
American artists. The collection hung
in the Metropolitan Museum of New
York. 'They will be ready for exhi-
bition in Ann Arbor next week.
Two new paintings from the Albert1
M. Todd collection are hung in thei
north gallery of Alumni Memorial
Hall. One, A Summer Night, Lake1
Placid, by Joseph H. Boston, is a study
in blue gold and rather ill defined.
The Wind Flurry painted by Charles
Curran depicts four typi'cal young
American girls, on a hilltop on a
,windy day. It ispermeated with buoy-,
ancy and vigor.
An extensive exhibition of the work'
of last year's architectural is still
being held in Alumni Memorial Hall.
The exhibition was first hung last June'

Classes in Overcrowded Rooms Will
Be Re-Divided Into Several
Sections "
Shortage of class rooms will un-
doubtedly result in the division of
several classes into two or more sec-
tions within the next few days. This
is especially true of the College of
Literature, Science, and the Arts, al-
though there are individual examples
of over-crowding in some of the other
branches of the University.
Even the rooms borrowed from oth.-
er schools, and the formation of im!
provised class rooms within the lit-
erary school will not entirely meet
the situation there. Certain depart-
inents have already petitioned for ex-
tra rooms at specified hours, others
are expected to do so witiin the next
few days.
None of the classes, however, will
be conducted in an over-crowded
fashion. Wherever this appears some
solution will be found before long, ac-
the creation of new classrooms, and
with the addition of extra sections,
cording to University officials, and
the limitation of certain sections, the
room shortage will soon be adjusted.

Naval Admiral Tells of Experiences
Before Recor# Crowd.
a' Union
Drawing one of the largest crowds
ever seen at any Michigan smoker, the
Engineering society attracted an audi
ence last night that filled the ballroom
of the Union to capacity. Tracing the
development of the United States. navy
as he grew up with it and saw it de-
velop, Admiral Charles B. Plunkett
contrasted the old sea fighting force
with that of the present day. "The
navy is a funny thing," said Plunkett,
"and it takes a lot of courage. I started
in when I was 15 Years old." Then he
told how, as a. boy living in Washing-
ton, D. C., he had to go directly to
the President of the United States,
Rutherford B. Hayes, to get his ap-
pointment to Anapolis Naval Academy,
43 years ago.
Saw Navy' Grow
"I have seen the navy grow up from
a sailing ship to the most powerful
thing afloat, the electrically driven
battleship; from the organization
largely manned by foreign men to that
by 100 per cent Americans; from the
one-cylinder steam engine carrying 15
pounds pressure to the square inch to
the electric battleship; from the big-
gest guns of 8 inches to the 16-inch
guns of today; from ships carrying 175
men -to those requiring 1600.
"We have added the torpedo boat
destroyer, the submarine, airplanes,
and the mine layers. That was the
reason I took the job of the 150-ton gun
when they asked me to put it on a
railroad car and to run crazy around
France with it."
Missed Only One Fight
In speaking of his range of action
during the years of his service in the
navy, the Admiral declared, "I was in
every fight in which the United States
was engaged, except the Boxer Re-
bellion, and that was because I
couldn't speak Chinese!"
In.speaking of the education that is
given in Annapolis, Plunkett said,
"Nowhere in the world can you get a
better training for making a success;
it is all right if you don't weaken."
Turning to his most recent activity,
his work during the World War, the
Admiral went on to tell how he had

As yet arrangements have not been

of the contest at Chicago will com-

The. larger universities which have
thus far joined the club are: the Uni-

Northwestern University, the Univer-
sity of Chicago, and. many of the larg-
er Eastern universities.. The smaller!
