Chihuahua City, Dec. 12.-(By 'A. P.)
-Governor Ignacio Enriquez today
held a. conference with officers of the
Chihuahua state militia, ordered mo-
bilized several days ago to work in
conjunction with federal troops.
The state troops have been supplied
with gdvern'nent arms and ammuni-
tion and are in readiness for instant
action. Governor Enriqune: was told
that the state of Chihuahua is quiet,
according to the executive officers but
precautions are being taken.

Gargoyle promised a Christmas
number for December and in its ap-
pearance yesterday fulfilled the prom-
ise. The December garg is distinct-
ly a Christmas number from cover to
cover and, incidentally it is a very
good garg, as gargs go.
Yule-tide in old England, picture-
esque street minstrels, an old-world
street with quaint, gabled houses,
snow, holly and steaming plum pud-
ding, all portrayed in a pleasing
manner with a fine color scheme and
painstaking attention to detail, that
is the Christmas cover. Rising far
above the mediocracy of the ordinary
run of college . publication covers, it
stamps this months garg at once as
possesing unusual merit.
Illustrations of a sort ever desir-
able in a magazine of the nature of
the Gargoyle are present in satisfy-
ing numbers. Members of the opera
cast seem to be the most prevalent
subjects, fitly enough. Michigan's

"prettiest girls" may well be repres-
ented in every campus publication.
An easy flow of humor to bear out
some point, that is a garg editorial.
One, we notice carries a promise of a
girls' number in January. All power
to you, garg. May the January num-
ber be as good as the December one
with its predominance of masculine
Gargoyle throughout this issue pre-
served the fine sense of proportion
for which it has come to be known in
presenting much the usual array of'
humorous contributions. Of a good
wholesome character are these contri-
butions, possessing neither the low
moral tone upon which similar pub-
lications make their bid for popular-
ity nor yet an air of prudary. Gar-
goyle evidently appreciates that the
student body as a whole is neither
an aggregation of angels nor yet of
moral perverts.

SINCE 1914

Michigan will dedicate the new sta-
dium of the Michigan Agriculture coll-
ege at East Lansing on Oct. 11 next
fall in the first Maize and Blue invas-
ion of the Capitol City since 1914.
This will be the first of three dedi-
cation games that the Varsity will
take part in next fall, the other two
being at Illinois on Oct 18. and Min-
nesota on Nov. 1 respectively.
Coach Ralph Young, athletic dir-
ector of M. A. C. completed arrange-
ments for the Lansing game with
Fielding H. Yost, director of intercoll-
egiate athletics, yesterday afternoon.
It was decided that Michigan will be
given for the students and alumni a
block of one half the seats- in the sta-
dium which will seat a total number
of 17,600 when completed. Michigan
students will be admitted to these
seats by the student coupon book, the
same way as used at the lM. A. C.
game when held at Ferry field.
In speaking of the game Coach
Yost said, "I will be very glad to take
the team to East Lansing.next fall to
dedicate the new stadium that Michi-
gan Agriculture College is erecting,
They have come .to Anma Arbo& for-:the
annual game every year since 1914
and it is only right that we should
return the courtesy on such an ocas-
ion as this. We have made arrane-
ments so that the students can at-
tend the game-in the ame manner as
at Ferry field."
The M. A. C. game next season -is
the second one -on the schedule, Mi-
ami being the opening contest of the
year. The Illinois game is on the
next Saturday Oct. 18; followed in
succession by the other five Confer-
ence games
A second extra showing of "Cotton
Stockings" the eighteenth annual
Michigan Union opera will be given
tonight in the Whitney theatre.. Un-
less it is decided to give another per-
formance following the J-Hop this will
be the last time the opera will be
given in Ann Arbor.
It was decided to add another ex-
tra showing here to the schedule of
performances -of the opera when t
was discovered that .many students
had been unable to obtain tickets for
the regular performances or for 1
first extra showing. - All seats 'for thel
seven performances of the opera Were
sold out far in advance.
A similar situation has developed in
ltany' of the cities which 'the opera
will visit on its road trip according' to
messages received by Homer Heath,
manager of-theUnion. Several cities
have wired asking that an extra per-
formance be scheduled for them. ItI
is understood that the advance 'seat
sale for houses in which the opera will
play on its road trip has been much
the same as in Ann Arbor. Some the-
atres have added extra seats .to ac-
commotlate the large numberof pat-
rons desiring.to see the production..

Political Writers Deny Contemplation
Of "An Arrangement"; Factions
Oppose Move
London, Dec. 12--In view of the per-
sistence, despite many denials of rum-
ors that the Liberals were willing and
had been agreed to give some sort
of support to the Conservatives when
Parliment meets next month, all cen
ters of political interest were consid-
erably excited yesterday when they
learned that Prime Minister Baldwin
and Herbert Acquith, the Liberal lead-
er, had had an interview.
Views Differ
The London Daily Mail asserts that
Mr. Asquith has offered his services
to Prime Minister Baldwin in the
"common interest," while the most
I powerful Liberal paper In England,
the Manchester Guardian, points out
that the Liberals and Labor have most
in common. It declares this is partic-
ularly true of foreign policies, those of
the two parties being "virtually the
A majority of the political writers
reiterate emphatically a denial that
"an arrangement" was made or is con-
templated. The Liberal newspapers
say their party certainly will not give
the least support to Mr. Baldwin and1
that neither Mr. Asquith nor Mr.j
Lloyd George ever suggested such a"
The Conservative Morning Post is
equally emphatic, asserting that both
parties are hostile to any sort of an
arrangement. The persistent char-
acter of the rumor is ascribed in some
quarters to the Labor politicians.
The announcement of Mr. Baldwin's
decision to hold on seems to have
clinched labor's resolve not only to
accept any offer to take up the gov-i
ernment, but actively to seek that re-
sponsibility. Then, as the Daily Her-
aid says today, "labor's opportunity
will have come."
Things apparently will be more or,
less at a standstill until Parliment
assembles, Jan 8. It will be Jan. 15
before the House gets down to real
business and is ready for the King's
speech and the address in reply.

Marx Greets Foreign Rep-
resentatives in
Gloomy Mood

Berlin, Dec. 12.-(By-A. P.)-The
German chancellor's first reception of
the foreign representative today was
an occasion of unrelieved gloom and
the keynote of his address was that
Germany was absolutely at the end o9
her resources. In this, however, Dr.
Marx did not differ materially fron
the utterances of his predecessos in
office on similar 'occasions. From
motives of economy only a few lights
were burning in the big reception
room of the chancellor's official resi-
dence, and the stockily built, spect-
acled successor of Streseman spoke
his first sentences in the semi-dusk,
until someone turned on more light.:
The chancellor's stern face hardly
moved when he solemnly announced
that Germany was now at the end of
her tether, but he declared that his
goverinmeit waswhole heartedly ;nf
favor of a policy .of fulfillment. He
Iadmpitted that many people in Germ.-
any'.evenIyet didanot realize what the
lost war meant to the country but the
government would spare no efforts to
meet its obligations.

by J. Breslin Behse, '27, and "From the
Realm of Memories" by Elizabeth R.
Powell, '25.
Among the verses, there are four
poems by Rosalie Dunlap Hickler
that stand out especially. There are
also verses by Marion Buck, '25, Mary
Elizabeth Cooley, '26, and ,several
others. "The Command, a one act
