Block Island, R. I., (by way of
Block Island Coast Guard Radio
Station), Dec. 19.-The submarine
S-4, which remained down by the
stern in 55 feet of water when an
attempt to raise her with new lift-
ing hooks was made, was brought
to the surface at 9:47 this morning.
The craft had been deliberately
sunk without a crew at 8:21 Mon-
day morning.
The bow of the submarine was
high and dry out of the water of
Great Salt pond earlier this morn-
ing, but its stern was resting in
mud, whence it had to be removedi
before the test of new lifting hooks
for submarines was completed.
Committee Attempts To Secure
Vacations Of Four Days
For Thanksgiving
At a regular weekly meeting of
the Student council last night,
Ernest McCoy, '29, in charge of the
council's campaign to sell tuber-
culosis seals to fraternities, urged
all fraternities who have purchased
their quotas to remit $5.00 to the
national headquarters of the tuber-
culosis seal association before
Christmas vacation.
John R. Gilmartin, '29E, dele-
gate to the recent convention of
the National Student Government
federation, reported indirectly that
the local Student council was
praised in the higest terms at that
meeting. While the convention
was in session at the University of
Missouri, Columbia, Mo., the uni-
versity was forced to close due to
the influenza epidemic, Gilmartin
Reporting on the progress of a
committee of which he is chair-
man, to secure a four-day Thanks-
giving vacation, David Wheeler, '29,
stated -that each of the persons
whom he had interviewed had re-
ferred him to some one else, and
that as yet he had not taken up
the matter with the final authority.
The council is taking the matter
up now to obtain a stand next year
by University officials who have
heretofore been able to escape the
issue on the ground that the year's
calendar had been fixed.
Frederick M. Asbeck, '29, chair-
man . of the council committee of
student investigation of the facul-
ty, reported that he is carrying
forward plans for the investiga-
tion with the cooperation of faculty
members. He denied rumors that
the investigation had been drop-
ped, but did not disclose the na-
ture of the work being done.

Fourteen Citizens Sign Petition
Presented To Members
Of Board
Convening at 4 o'clock tomorrow
afternoon in room C of the Law
building for a special session, the
Board of Regents will conduct a
hearing on matters relative to the
proposed construction of dormi-
tories in Ann Arbor, according to
an announcement made yesterday
f from the office of Shirley W. Smith,
1 secretary of the University.
Nature Of Testimony Unknown
After a compilation of replies
from members of the board who
were sent copies of the petition
presented to Secretary Smith last
week, in which a special meeting of
the Regents was requested, it was
decided to hold a special meeting
before the holiday vacation began.
Although the exact nature of the
testimony to be presented at the
meeting is as yet uncertain, and
although the meeting will be of a
somewhat special nature, it is ex-
pected that the proceedure will be
comparable to that of any other
meeting of that body, for which
President Clarence Cook Little
will act as chairman of the meet-
Large Attendance Expected
According to Herbert G. Watkins,
assistant secretary, the University
will be ready to care for a large
attendance tomorrow afternoon,
and indicated that if room C, the
proposed meeting place, should
prove inadaquate to seat those who
are interested in attending; the
meeting would be moved to some
place large enough to accommo-
date the attendants.
The decision to hold a meeting
open to the public rather than a
closed committee meeting includ-
ing citizen representatives evident-
ly was the result of the.wishes ex-
pressed by the members of the
board. Each member of the board
was given a copy of the petition
presented by the citizens and in-
vited by Secretary Smith to offer
suggestions as to the type of meet-
ing to be held during which the
dormitory matter was to be con-
Fourteen Sign Petition
The petition was signed by 14
citizens representing groups of
residents of Ann Arbor who felt
that their interests would be
jeopardized if the proposed extenr

agitation aroused by the announce-
ment made by administrative of-
ficers of the University to the ef-
feet that work would be started
immediately on the first unit of the
dormitory system. Among the
signers of the petition appeared
the name of Mayor Edward W.
