,Property Cost Will Run Into Millions;
Train Service, Conimunieation
Are Interrupted
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Nov. 4.-Six relief
workers were ordered today by the
National Red Cross to go to the New
England flood area and take charge
of relief work there.
Death and destruction were today
riding the crest of angry flood waters
that swirled In unprecedented fury
over five New England states, part of
New York and up into Canada.
The cost, in human life and in prop-
erty damage, could not be counted,
for the waters had not receded to re-,
veal the full tragedy of their passing,
and coinnhunication to many of the
most seriously devastated districts
was still completely destroyed'
It wals easy to estimate, however,
that the loss in property will run well
into the millions of dollars, and it is
feared that when the final count of
human sacrifice to the storm's ferocity
is made the total will be more than a

Stagg's Defense Against Pass Attack
Will Determine Outcome Of
Today's Game
By Herbert E. Vedder
CHICAGO, Nov. 5-Memories of an
intense rivalry of the dimming past
will be freshened in the hearts and
minds of thousands of Michigan and
Chicago alumni and supporters, and
the present generation of students at
these two great middle-western uni-
versities will enter upon a new era
of gridiron competition when the Ma-
roons and Wolverines battle once
again this afternoon on Stagg Field.
The game will start at 2 o'clock
central time, which 3 o'clock Ann
Arbor time.
Revamped and shaken up, Michi-
gan is the favorite, but this makes no
'difference to the old master of the
Midway. Michigan, after her defeat
b,y Illinois, is ready to rip into Chi-
cago with vengeance; the Wolverines
.are in perfect shape, but this makes
no difference to Stagg-he knows he

the battle.

ertheless true, the figure of Fielding

BOSTON, Nov. 4.-Flood waters to-
night still gripped New England. Rain
had ceased in most sections, but
streams which had taken a toll of at
least a dozen lives and probably more
continued to rise. Railroad service
was paralyzed in Vermont, New Hamp-
shire and Western Massachusetts.
Scores of bridges have been swept
away with several dams. Highways
were many feet deep in water over an
extensive area. The damage will be
several imillion dollars.
All.day thre were rumors of heavy
loss of life in Mentpelier and Barre,
Vermont. Both cities were cut off
from all communication and the ru-
mors could not be confirmed. Last
night both placed reported heavy
storm damage, and Montpelier sent an
appeal to Burlington for boats for
use in the flooded streets.
The flood came without warning.
The heavy rains of the past summer
had left the streams higher than usual
at this season. Rain began to fall yes-
terday in Vermont and Western Mas-
sachusetts. Last night it became a
downpour and spread into New Hamp-
shire and eastern Massachusetts. The
rainfall varied from three to seven
inches in different localities. Count-I

Michigan's telar guard, recovered!
from his injuries sustained in lastj
two games, is expected to prove a
stumbling block to Chicago line plung-
ers today.
About 75 members of the 'Varsity
band, Director Nicholas Falcone, and
Robert A. Campbell, treasurer of the
University, left yesterday noon for
Chicago, where they played at a din-
iner given by the Chicago and Detroit
alumni last ight.
This noon, the band will again ;play
at an alumni dinner, and will go di-j
rectly from there to Stagg field forI
the Michigan-Chicago football game in
the afternoon..
Much rivalry is expected on Stagg
j field between the bands of the two in-
stitutions as they are both of the same
size and play about the same style off
music. According, to reports, the
drum-major of the Chicago band has
been out of school for a few years and
is considered one of the best in the
Middle-West. The Michigan band will
form the block "M" before the game,
and the M-I-C-H between the halves.
One of the musical features of the
trip will be'the playing of a new medley
of Michigan songs, which was just
completed by Nicholas Falcone, the
new director of the band. It is said tc
be one of the best pieces ever written
for rendition by a band, and to be
especially suited to the 'Varsity organ-
Tonight, the band will be on leave.
The members will return on the same

at midnight and arriving in Ann Arbor

Although the Maroon team does not
boast a punter of Gilbert's ability,
Stagg has developed three capable
kickers in Anderson, ;MacDonough.
and Mendenhall. MacDonough is cf
sidered the most accurate of t.- .
trio, although Anderson gets more
distance on his punts.
Libby Returns
Chicago's passing game may be
considerably strengthened by the re-
turn of Vic Libby, who was injured in
the Purdue game and has not started
a contest since. Should Stagg start
him in the Maroon backfield, the
Chicago team will present two dan-
gerous_ passers, as Mendenhall is the
artist at the throwing end of Stagg's
long passing game.
The Maroon squad, with the single
exception of Bob Spence, end, will
be in good shape for the con test, as
Mendenhall, Grenebaum, Libby, and
Anderson have recovered from the
injuries that have been troubling
them. Likewise the Wolverines, ex-
cept for Joe Gembis, injured half-
back, and possibly Leo Hoffinan, will
be ready for service.
The result of today's cpntest will
hinge largely on the ability of the
Chicago defense to halt Michigan's
strong passing game which is certain
to be called into play frequently with
Gilbert back in the lineup.

The earth tremors continued dur-
