Police Use Tear Bombs To Frustrate
Attempts Of Merry Makers To
Apply Torch To Old Stadium
CHICAGO, Nov. 23.-Northwestern
university students celebrating the
achievements of the Purple football
team, tonight set fire to an unoccupied
fraternity house, then engaged in a
pitched battle with firemen and po-'
licemen until tle police used tear
bombs to drive them back, then they
started for the old stadium intent on
applying the torch to it.
Gathering on the campus according
to a prearranged plan, about 1,000
men and women students waited until
9 o'clock when the old Phi Kappa Sig-
ma house, recently vacated, was fired.
The house is not on the campus
and as soon as the light of the flames
showed, the students rushed to it, and
began their celebration with a series
of "wildcat" yells.
Firemen were surrounded and their
hose taken from them and turned on
the fire fighters. Policemen headed
by Chief William A. Wiltderger, him-
self a college graduate, were given
an even hotter reception and reserves
were sent for.
The tear bombs were used with ef-
fectiveness, the handful of policemen
driving back the students until the
supply of bombs were exhausted. Then
the students again surrounded the of-
ficers and engaged in a pitched bat-
tle while another detachment of stu-
dents started for the old stadium con-
sisting mostly of tiers of wooden seats,
and announced that they expected to
fire it.
Meanwhile, the policemen detracted
the attention of the students, and fire-
men tried to save the fraternity house
which was to have been torn down.
Capacity for more than 300 addi-
tional beds will be made possible with
the reopening of the old University
hospital on Jan. 1, 1926, it was an-
nounced yesterday by Dr. Harley A.
Haynes, director. The old buildings
are to be used for convalescent pa-
tients. They will be complete units,
even supplying their own dining room
The reopening of these units will
provide the University hospital ser-
vice with more than 1,150 beds.
Class Dues Are
Payable Today
Class dues will be collected in all
classes of all schools and colleges of
the University today, following the
schedule arranged by the Student
council. Class treasurers may obtain
voucher and receipt books at 9 o'clock
this morning at the offices of the
council on the third floor of the Union.
Each class treasurer is expected to
make his own arrangements for plac-

ing a booth which is easily accessible
to members of his class. Freshman
law students will pay their dues to-
day, between 8:30 o'clock and 4:30
o'clock, at the desk near the freshman
law bulletin board, the treasurer an-
nounced last night.
Freshman literary students will find
their treasurer at a table inside the
main door of Angell hall; seniors o
the same college have arranged fox
another table in the same place.
Senior dues have been 'reduced fron
the customary $3.50 to $1.50.
If necessary, the work of collectinf
class due will be continued later ix
the week, the council announced las
right. Ticket applications for th
J-Hop and other class dances will no
be accepted by the committees ix

Appealing to the members of Mich-
an's 1925 football team to decline
ny possible offers of affiliating them-
elves with professional elevens, Pres-
lent Clarence Cook Little, in his ad-
ress at the annual football banquet
n the assembly hall of the Union Iast
ight, stated that the' recent decision
f Harold "Red" Grange to turn pro-
essional in the near- future has given
ons of ammunition to the opponents
f intercollegiate football.
"If Grange is going to play profes-
ional football to repay his father for
me cost of his three and quarter
ears' education at the University of
linois and to put his brother through
ollege, it appears to me that Grange's
ducation has been mighty expensive
nd that his brother's will be the
ame when the tremendous sums he
fill receive are taken into considera-
ion," President Little remarked.
"Why could Grange have not post-
oned his action a year if he is de-
ermined to play professionally? To
eave his university at this time and
Iso admit it has pre'pared him to do
othing else than play football is an
njustice to that institution."
President Little said he sincerely
oped that members of Michigan's
eamn would not follow Grange this
inme "and stick close to him as they
ave done at times," but urged that
hey "let him travel the whole length
f the field alone from now on." In-
ercollegiate football has been pen-
aized half the length of the field by
-range's decision, he added, and now
t remains for colleges and univer-
ities to win it back.
Little Commends Yost
In. conclusion the president stated
ie had never enjoyed a football sea-
on as much as the one just closed
iere, and commended the work of
oach Fielding H. Yost to the greatest
legree. "Yost uses the football field
o work out the problems of life," he
aid, "and you men will realize that
n later years as you cannot possibly
o now."
Coach Yost, who followed President
[ittle on the speaker's program, open-
ed his address by declaring, "You are
members of the greatest football team
I have ever coached; in fact you are
the greatest football team I ever saw
in action. I am making this state-
ment cognizant of the wonderful rec-
ord of the 1901 team and the point-
a-minute teams that followed."
The past season, and the banquet
concluded Coach Yost's quarter-cen-
tury of service as Michigan's football
mentor. His statements were backed
by what he termed "facts" which be-
spoke of the team's accomplishments
this fall.
Yost Proud Of Team
"I am proud to have coached you,"
he exclaimed, "I am proud to say that t
every last one of you played the game
fro~m start to finish like a man and
a sportsman. You were undaunted
the one time when the scoreboard
showed you had lost, and you were
generous the seven times you over-
whelmed your opposition. You were
great in victory and great in defeat.
Michigan will profit enormously by
what you have done this year."
E. A. Batchelor, of the Detroit Sat-,
urday Night staff and the Detroit Ath-
letic Club News, who stated he had
been writing about Michigan football
teams for the past 20 years, spoke
on the "Press Slant On Football."
Press Handicapped
"The press is handicapped in its po-
sition at any football game," he said,
"and it is most difficult to be accurate
and do justice to every player. I am
going to ask you to be charitable and
considerate in your expressions of the
press and its work for this reason."

Iversity extension service, who acted
