''Wer Against War" To Be Subject Of
Third Talk In Oratorical
Association Series
Will H. Irwin, war correspondent
and magazine writer and editor, will
give the third lecture of the Oratorical
association series at 8 o'clock Monday
night at Hill auditorium. His subject
will be "The War Against War."
Mr. Irwin, began his career as a re-
porter on a San Franciso paper. After
two years experience there he went to
New York where he became a reporter
on the New York Sun, and in 1904 he
was made managing editor of Mc-
Clures Magazine. When he severed
his connections with this magazine in
1906 he became a general magazine
writer and in 1914 was one of the first
war correspondents sent abroad.
He, with Irvin S. Cobb and John T.
McCutcheon, was the first English
speaking prisoner captured by theI
Germans. After his release by the
German general staff he continued hisj
work in the field and he was black-
listed by the French and British arm-
ies for his story of "Ypres." Lloyd
George later permitted him to re-enter
the field when it was learned that his
story was truthful.
After the war he stayed in the Ruhr
as correspondent and also wrote his
best known book, "The Next War."
He has contributed frequently to
magazines and periodicals since his
return from Europe.
First Showing Of "Tea For Three" To
Be Given In Mimes Tonight

Freshmen To Meet In Front Of Union
Sophomores Asked To Assemble
At Gymnasium
Rules and the system of scoring for
the annual Fall games between the
freshmen and sophomore classes,
which will be held tomorow morning
at South Ferry field, were announced
yesterday. Rules governing the con-
test will be the same as last year, al-
though the scoring will be slightly
different tomorrow.
The pillow fight will be the first
I event on the program. Two teams of
five men each will participate. Five
wooden horses, six feet in height, will
be used, the event to be run off in two
heats. A freshman and sophomore
will oppose each other, sitting on
either end of the horse, the object
being to knock the opponent off the
horse by swinging the pillow. The
event will count one point for the
class having the majority of winners,
I the issue to be decided by a play-off
j between the two class captains in case
of a tie.
Cane Spree Is Next
The second event will be the cane
spree. Two teams of five men each
will participate, as in the pillow fight,
the object being to wrestle the three-i
foot hickary stick from the opponent's
hands. The class having the majority
of winners will receive one point, as
in the first event, the captains, or two
picked men, settling the contest in
case of a tie.
All members of both classes will,
take part in the final event, the flag
rush. Three poles, 26 feet high, and
stationed 30 feet apart will be used.
The freshmen will guard the poles
from mass rushes of the second year
men who will try to remove the flag
from the top of each. The event will
be divided into two ten-minute halves,
the sophomores scoring a point for
each flag removed, and the freshmen
receiving a point for each flag not
taken down during tie Iprescribed
time of play. A total of three points
for one of the classes is possible in
this event, or five points for the en-
tire program.
Require Tennis Shoes
Tennis shoes must be worn by every
student taking part in the games, and,
no one will be permitted to partici-
pate who is not equipped with these.
Members of the Student council,
Sphinx, Triangles and "M" men will
act as officials during the contests.
Badges will be distributed to these
men at 9:30 o'clock at the Union. Earl
Blaser, '27, will be in charge of the
Freshmen will assemble in front of
the Union at 9 o'clock, and sopho-
mores will meet in front of Waterman
gymnasium at the same time. The
parade down State .street to the field
will start at 9:30 o'clock the program
being scheduled to start promptly at
10 o'clock.4

Crego Elected To
Lead Freshmen In
Annual Fall Event
Walter B. Crego was elected class
captain for the annual Fall games by
more than 600 freshmen who as-
sembled at the Union last night fol-
lowing the pep meeting in Hill audi-
torium. Talks by E. E. Fleischman
of the public speaking department and
by Lester F. Johnson, '27L, president
of the Union were also made.
Mr. Fleischman, speaking on "Men
and Boys", urged the gathering that,
through the organized games, they
might develop a form to which they
would look back as one of their fine
things and to which they could be
true in future life. Only by making
mistakes and profiting therefrom can
university etiquette be learned; by
organized class games, he pointed out,
can the freshman find himself by mak-
ing the least mistakes.
Earl Blaser, '27, explained the fea-
tures of next Saturday's interclass
conflict, of which he will have charge.
Johnson spoke in place of George
Rich, '29, Varsity football player who
was unable to speak.

Ishpeming Disaster
Costs 51 Lives; One
Escapes From Trap
(By Associated Press)
SISHPEMING, Nov. 4.-Snow was
laying a mantle of white mourning to-
night over the ugly crater left by the
cave-in that caused America's greatest
iron mining disaster here Wednesday.
Fifty-one perished when the Barnes-
Hecker mine caved in and the pass-
ages were filled with water and
quicksands. Only one man escaped
the death trap.
The cave-in left a yawning hole,
considerably sunken from the former
level and about 300 feet long and 200
feet wide. This was filling with water
today, a clear pool over the greater
part, but a murky, gloomy black scum
covered another considerable area.
The cave-in occurred a quarter mile
east of the mine's shaft.
It was learned late today by the
Associated Press that the cave-n was
absolutely without warning, almost an
unprecedented mishap. There usually
is either a lack of pressure on mine
timber, showing they are not properly
supporting the over-burden, or a
crack, which causes partial flooding
or excessive water. Neither occurred
in this instance, mine experts showed.
The men in the mine, 51 employees
of the company, and County Mine In-
spector William Hill, had no warning
whatever. There was a great crum-

The Yale professor will arrive in
Ann Arbor Sunday morning and will'
be the guest of Dean G. W. Patterson
of the engineering college during his
