Otto Han4, '00L, Will Again Give Cup
to Winner; Other Awards
Final arrangements for the annual
drive for life members by the Union
have been completed and the drive
will start Tuesday, Nov. 11, and will
continue for three days. All students
on the campus who. are not life mem-
bers of the Union will be solicited at
this time. Team captains have been
appointed and territories are being
assigned to the various teams.
Harry G. Messer, '26, is general
chairman of the drive this year, and
will be assisted by 19 team captains.
The captains are: John Long, '27,
Harry R. Haynie, '26, Elliot Chamber-
lin, '27, Robert Johnston, '27, Georgej
Stanley, '27E, Raymond M. Read, '27,
John M. Halsted, '27E, Calvin Peter-
son, '27, Smith Cady, '27, F. L. Mullins,
'27, F. K. Schoenfeldt, '27E, Samuel,
Lapp, '27, Rudolph Bostelman, '27,1
Carlos Kelly, '27, Harry B. Koenig, '26,1
Herman Hoek, '27E, Frank Blymer,
'27E, Walter Berger, '27E, and James
F. Boyer, '27..,
Each team captain will choose ten
men to work under him on his team
and each team will be assigned a de-
finite territory to cover. All fratern-
ity houses and rooming houses on the
campus will be visited by members of
the teams in an effort to locate and
sign up men who are not life members
of the Union.
Otto Hans, 'OOL, has donated a cup
which will be given to the man'
bringing in the highest number of
pledges for life members. The cup
will become the permanent possession
of the winner. This is the fourth cupI
which Mr. Hans has donated to Mich-#
igan Union life membership cam-
In addition to the cup for the high'
man, there will also be awards for
every man who takes part in the drive.
These awards will probably be in the
shape of watch charms or some sim-
ilar insignia. There will also prob-
ably le an award for the team with

lUpperclassmen Get First Choice;
Women Will Be Barred From
Eleven hundred Michigan men will
sit in the fifty yard line cheering sec-
tion at the Northwestern game on
Saturday, marking the second appear-
ance of the section on Ferry field.
Numerous letters received at the of-
fices of the Student council indicate
that the cheering section was a suc-
cess at the Wisconsin game.-
"No women will be allowed to enter
the stands with a ticket for section
H," stated Alfred B. Connable, '25,
president of the council, last night.
"The Athletic association has issued
cheering seats to men students only,
accommodating the upperclassmen
first and filling out the full, quota of
1,100 seats with sophomores. As these
tickets are obtained by student cou-
pon books and are non-transferable.
"At the Wisconsin game three, or
four women were admitted to the cheer-
ing section. Feeling that they did not
perhaps understand thoroughly the
organization of this group which was
experimental to the campus at that
time, we let them remain there rather
than deprive them of the pleasure of
seeing the game."

megaphones for use in the cheering
section at the Northwestern. game.

Miller Addresses Captains and Lieu-

Due to a misunderstanding in di-

tion, only a few of the canvassersj
submitted reports for the first eve -
ning's activity. Those turned in, how-
ever, shows the average subscription
received from men approached was

night showed more than $1,500 sub-
scribed, the average per man hold-

ing night of the drive.

hoped to bring the $6,000 goal easily'
within reach a day ahead of schedule.
A ,brief program which has been ar-
ranged to extend not longer than a
half hour will include reports, special
music, and light refreshments.
Earl Sawyer, '26A, chairman of the
drive, expressed satisfaction with the
results to date. "I believe that if we
can solicit the' entire student body
before midnight Thursday .Nwe will
easily reach the goal. But this means
that every member of the drive must
stick to his job until it is done."
More than 600 tickets for the North-
western game will be placed on stu-
dent sale between 1 and 6 o'clock to-
day at the offices of the Athletic as-

Republican Majority Mounts Higher;
Senatorship, Governorship
Become Walk Away
Detroit, Nov. 5. (By A. P.)-With
Michigan giving its usual big Repub-
lican majority in all races for state
and national officers, and with each
of the three proposed amendments to l
the state constitution hopelessly
buried under the greatest avalanche
of ballots the Wolverine state ever
has seen, the chief interest remain-
ing tonight in Tuesday's general
election was the ultimate size of the
vote. ,
Tonight, with 2,172 of the 2,775 pre-
cincts in the state reporting, the num-
ber of ballots counted on the presi-
dential race has reached near the,
million mark.I
As additional returns became
available throughout the day, it was
apparent that the Republican majori-
ties and the opposition to the three
proposed constitutional amendments
would muont' higher steadily until the
final tabulation is made.
They 2,172 precincts reporting gave
the following: Coolidge, 754,841; Da-
vis, 116,056; LaFollette, 98,262.
The .race for the U. S. Senatorship
and the governorship has passed the
walkaway stage and has become a
rout for Democratic aspirants. With
2,072 precincts reporting on the sen-"
atorship tonight, the standing was:
Couzens, 672,567; Cooley, 209,710. The
governorship count in 2,115 precincts
showed Groesbeck, 650,374; Prens-
dorf, 253,064.
The amendment which, if it had
passed would have outlawed parochial
schools in Michigan, was buried deep
in returns from 1,973 voting districts.
The vote was: yes, 299,515, no, 568,672,
or almost two to one against the pro-
The income tax shared a worse fate,
it being snowed under by approxi-
mately 5 to 1. The vote in 1954 pre-
.cincts was yes, 140,972; No, 654,147.
The reapportionment, unpopular
with both city and country, was put
to sleep, 547,882 to 176,646, when 1,948
precincts had reported.I

Number of Pledges For Year Book
Fall Off; 1,500 Have


With, but two days left in the cam-
paign for subscription pledges to the
1925 Michiganensian the mark set for
the drive is but half reached. Aim-
ing for 3,000 as th'e total number,'
only 1,500 pledges have been signed
in the last three days. Although the
records for previous years was brok-
en in the first two days of the cam-
'paign, yesterday saw a considerable
falling off in the number of signers.
Those who do not sign a pledge'
for their 'Ensian during the drive,
which ends at 4:30 o'clock tomorrow,
will be charged $6 if they wish to buy
one at sny later date. The price ofI
$5 to those who sign the pledge mayE
be paid at any time before December
19, when the price for pledge sign-{
ers automatically goes to $5.50.
Many new and original features
will be included in this year's 'Ensian I
The fraternity section has been ar-
ranged differently and a new and
special border will be placed about it,
giving it an entirely different form.
A five page, four color view section
will be included also. The senior sec-
tion will have the panels arranged
vertically, instead of horizontally as
heretofore, and 12 pictures will be
placed on the page instead of 14.
The present drive is the only cam-
paign which will be held this year,
and there will be no other oppor-
tunity to secure an 'Ensian at the re-
duced rate. The usual spring cam-
paign will be dispensed with.

LaFollette Shows Slight Advances
As Final Reports
New York, Nov. 5. (By A. P.)-The
full measure of the Republican vic-
'tory at the polls could not ;yet be
takenatonight, but the returns contin-
ued to show that President Coolidge
would have at least 100 to spare in
the electoral college, and the largest
popular plurality in history. The
showing John W. Davis made remains
unchanged throughout today and al-
though Senator LaFollette began tor
creep up a little in one or two west-
ern states, there was no certainty to-
night that he would receive the elec-
toral vote of any state group except
that of Wisconsin.
In the face of the day's congres-
sional returns the Republicans made
certain of a paper majority, at least,
in both senate and house, but doubt
remains whether the margin would be+
great enough to give the administra-
tion the whip hand over the com-
bined opposition of the Democrats
and the LaFollette bloc.
As the presidential figures stood
tonight with only 'a handfull of the
electoral vote still in doubt, the indi-
cated strength of the three candidates'
in the electoral college is as follows:
Coolidge, 367; Davis, 136; LaFollette,
13; Doubtful, 15; necessary to choice,
266. -
Chicago, Nov. 5.-The vote given
President Coolidge in yesterday's:
general election in Illinois was in-
creased late today when 4,588 pre-
cincts out of 5,989 in 'the state unof-
ficially gave him 1,098,476. The same
number of precincts gave John W."
Davis 416,595 votes and Robert M. La-
Follette 309,115.
