All women students who are
planning to go to Columbus for the
Ohio State game are urged by Miss
Alice Lloyd, adviser of women, to
bring their parents' letters of per-
mission to the Advisers' office as
soon as possible. These letters have
been slow in coming in, according
to Miss Lloyd, and she would ap-
preciate having as many as pos-
sible before Thursday noon.
In order that the Advisers may
arrange with the railroad company
for accommodations for the women
planning to take special trains to
Columbus, women are asked to let
Miss Lloyd know whether they are
going to the game by train or some
other means.
Two special trains are to be run
to Columbus for the game. The
first leaves Ann Arbor at 10:30
o'clock (eastern time) Friday night
arriving in Columbus early Satur-
day morning, and returns at 10:30
o'clock Saturday night, reaching
Ann Arbor early Sunday. The sec-
ond special is scheduled to leave
Ann Arbor at 7:30 o'clock Saturday
morning and will unload two or
three blocks from the stadium in
Columbus. This train will reload
at the Union depot at 7 o'clock Sat-
urday night and will reach Ann
Arbor at midnight.
Round trip railroad fare, $5.
