Band Bounce and help from Athletic{
Association Will Partially f
Solve Problem
Permanent solution of the band trip
problem with the idea of doing away
with tag days is the purpose of a plan
placed by the Alumni association last.
night before the Student council and
representatives of the Varsity band.,
The plan calls for an endowment fund
which would finance the band in all of
its activitie4 throughout the year.
The endowment fund proposed byj
the Alumni association would be raised
from the following sources: contribu-
tions from alumni and local mer-
chants, and surplus money left in class
treasuries at the time of graduation.
As a means of supporting the band
until this permanent fund is raised the
following plan is proposed. The Stu-
dent council shall petition the Athletic
association for $400 a year more than
the $1250 now given for band support,
in addition to the expense of half of
the band uniforms every four years,
and that the Alumni association will
donate 25 per cent of the grid graph
proceeds to the band, starting with the
Wisconsin game Saturday.
Committee Each Year
The plan If agreed upon with re-
gards to the grid graph proceeds,
would provide that the Student coun-
cil on behalf of the student bodywould
furnish uniformed cheerleaders for the
graph showings, and would secure stu-
dent assistants for the management of
the graph, and assist i« n the greater
cooperation on the part of the student
A committee will be appointed each
year to have control of the handling.
of the entire arrangement. It will,
consist of a representative of the as-
sociation as chairman, a member of
the student council, appointed by the
president, and the student manager of
the band. The band will supply a
band at each grid graph reproduction
and through its student manager and
assistants will assist the grid-graph
committee:in the administrativeduties
of running the board.
Rumney Makes Statement
At the meeting of the Student coun-
cil following the gathering called by
the Alumni association, a commttee
composed of Howard A. Donahue, '24,
Thonias J. Lynch, '24L, and Edward
Fox, '25E was chosen to consider the
matter further and report to the coun-

Bursley Declares Problem Of

Beal in Chicago, was expressed yes-I
terday by Joseph A. Bursley, dean of
students. Thq problem of the alumnus
and his influence on student morals,i
he declared is a serious one and has
engagedathe attentin of administrat-
ive officals in large universities ever
since the 18th amendment went into
"Too much stress cannot be laid
on the influence of the alumnus re-
turning to his fra ernity house," he
declared. "There is no doubt that un-
dergraduates tend to subject them-
selves to the influence of the "old
grads" and look to them to a certain
extent as a model for their conduct.
When an alumnus brings back liquor
to the house, members of the organ-
ization feel that such conduct must be
the proper thing. The most import-
ant influence, however, is not the
amount of intoxicating liquors brought
back, but the stand the alumni take on
the whole question of drinking. While
college students should have suffic'ent
judgment to dec'de such questions for

piay a tare part Lne s u enL sae
cision on such matters.
"Many fraternities on the campus
have already taken steps to prohibit
drinking in the house. Circular let-
ters to alumni requesting them to re-,
£rain from bringing liquor into the
house, and tokeep away from the
house when under the influence of in-
toxicants have had a significant effect
on the enforcement of house rules in
;Is regard. Such a policy is to be
commended and encouraged.
"In considering the problem which
is the most serious one with which
we have to deal at the present time,
it is essential to keep in mind that the
background of the student plays a
large part in his conduct after he ar-
rives. The problem broadens into one{
whose scope includes the nation. The
situation in the University has its
background in the national moral
problem. The college student, how-
ever, must remember his responsibili-;
ty as one who is given the best op-,
portunity for intelligent thought on
such propositions."

The returns compiled last nght
show that the number of subscrip-

last year. More than half the quota:
has already been obtained and the
closing day of the campaign is. expect-t
ed to be the best.
Returns from the fraternities, soror-
ities and dormn tories received so far
have exceeded all expectations, ac-
cording to members of the staff. The
returns from these sources are not!
yet nearly complete, many holding
their cards intending to turn them in
after the close of the drive. The total,
to date is about 300.
Approximately 150 have taken ad-

Liberals Fight Laborites in Constitu-
enoles, Giving Opposition
London, Nov. 14.-(By A. P.)--Pend-
ug Premier Baldwin.'s further exposi-
ion of his protectionist policy, which
will be made in the course of the de-
ate on the labor censure motion in
he House of Commons tomorrow, po-
'tical interest is wholly absorbed in
active preparations in the various con-
stituencies for a sharp election cam-
The cabinet had a long sitting to-
lay when, it is believed, outlines of
the government's pol'cy were laid
own. There is evident misgivings and
nervousness among the members of
the conservative party generally, as;
contrasted with the enthusiasm dis-
played in the liberal and labor ranks.
If the reunited liberal and labor
parties could be induced to cooperate
there is a very general belief that the
protectionists would be defeated. The
labor party, however, has consistently
refused to cooperate with the liberals
and as a consequence liberals are
fighting laborites in the constituencies
and giving seats to the conservatives
on the minority votes. The expiring
parliament was in point of fact elected
on a minority vote of the electorate
for this very reason.
Michigan's 'fighting band" will go
wvith the team to Wisconsin. This was
decided yesterday when the tag day
held to raise the necessary funds to
finance the trip netted:-$700, making a.
total of approximately $2,000 with the=
money already raised.
All of the fraternities and campus
organizations have not yet turned in
their :respective house donations. It
is expected that another $100 will be
added to the total when these contri-
butions are received. The houses are
asked to send in their donations, as
soon as possible.
The cheerleaders will also be taken
on the trip, and if enough money has I
been raised when all of the money is
turned in the freshmen and reserve
squads will also go. It is is the cus-
tom each year to give these men a I
trip if the finances can be obtained.

Berlin, Nov. 14.-A "diamond fund"
is being raised in Moscow to form
propaganda abroad according to the
anti-bolshevick Russian language
newspaper which asserts that all ar-
rangements have been made to carry
out the rmost extensive campaign for
the spread of communism ever at-
The money for the fund is said to
be derived from loyal communists who
are selling their diamonds for a. tre-
mendous drive in Europe and particu-
larly in France. Just where the com-
munists obtained the diamonds the
newspapers do not try to explain, but
they contend that large amounts have
been sent to Paris to further the
movement there.
Oels, Nov. 14.-(Dy A. P.)-Prince

Frederick William is overjoyed at his
return to Germany after five years of
exile in Holland. He spent the morn-

estate, accompanied by his wife, Prin-
cess Cecilie, and later received the
newspaper correspondents to whom he
made the following statement.
"I am glad to be back with my wife
and children after nine years absence
(this apparently including his years
on the war front); happy again to be
among my fellow citizens and to be
able to share with them the great
burdens of the fatherland.

Cast, Choruses, and Committeemen
Will Have Precedence in
Buying Tickets.
Mail order applications for tickets
to "Cotton Stockings," eighteenth an-
nual Union opera, will be received.
this morning by members of the cast,
chorus, committees and orchestra.
These men will be given precedence
for two days to get in their orders for
a maximum of four tickets for the
local run of the production which
opens Monday, December 3, at the
Box Sale Opens Nov. 29
Performances will be held on Mon-
day, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday,
and Friday evenings, and Saturday
afternoon of that week. Prices of
seats are the same as in former years.
The entire lower floor sells for $2.50
per seat, while seats in the first four
rows In the balcony are $2, the sec-i
ond four rows $1.50, and the balance
of the balcony $1.
On Saturday morning, after cast,
chorus, committees, and brchdstra
have had their two days' precedence,
maIl order applications will be sent
to full paid life members of the Un-
ion who in turn will have two days'
precedence. Then' at intervals of
two days thereafter, aplilcations will
be sent to participating life members
of the Union, and to the yearly mem-
bers. A box office sale for University
women will be held soon thereafter,
followed by a - box office sale begin-
ning Thursday, Nov. 29, at the Whit-
ney, for the general public.
Opera Nearly Ready
Mail orders will be filled in the or-
der of their receipt. The reason for
the two days' preference given to each
group is to enable members of one
group to send in during the period
and have their orders filled in advance
of the next group. Preference is lost
after the group's time has expired. It
is important that more than one
I choice for- seats be specified in the
order. Often excellent seats can be
given at one performance, while the
house may be sold out for another
performance, the one specified.
Rehearsals for "Cotton Stockings"
have proceeded with more dispatch
than in former years and the opera
is practically. ready to be presented
I right now, according to E. Mortimer
Shuter, director. With more than two
weeks additional in which to put on
t the finishing touches; he believes that
the production will be at its best the
first night.
