150 and 160 persons were killed by
gas explosions and fire in the No.
6 mine of the Sunday Creek Coal
company here today, Andrew Gin-
nan, state mine inspector, told Pearl
Hi'll, bookkeeper for the company,
after traversing the entire mine to-
Gas Through Whole Mine.
Hill said' that Ginnan went en-f
tirely throughtthe main shaft of
the mine and that he reported see-
ing bodies everywhere, but not a
sign of life. Ginnan, according to
Hill, said that there was a remote
possibility some of the trapped men
may have taken refuge in tunnels
leading to the main shaft and es-
caped death, but he considered this
barely possible.
Seven Officials Are Killed.
At least seven of a party of of-
ficials of the mine and their guests,
in the mine at the time of the ex-
plosion, are known to be dead, of-
ficials said. The known dead are:
W. E. Tytus, Columbus, president
of the Sunday Creek Coal Co.
P A. Coen, Columbus, vice-presi-
den of the company.
H. H. Upson, assistant to Tytus.

Local Balloting Unusually Large;
Twice Defeated Sewer
Bond Approved.
Reapportionment and Cigarette
Amendments Rejected, Other
Three Are Accepted.
One of the heaviest elections in
recent years Tuesday saw Republi-
can candidates sweep to victory,
putting into office every candidate
that had been nominated on coun-
ty, state, and congressional tickets.
More than 16,000 electors cast bal-I
lots in the 35 prec'ihcts of Wash-
tenaw county, it was said yesterday,
with the victorious candidates being
elected to office by large majorities
over their Democratic opponents.
Vote Big in Ann Arbor.
in Ann Arbor, the vote was un-
usually heavy, 6,259 casting votes.
The major issue, the proposed $350,-
000 sewer bond issue, defeated on
two previous occasions, was ap-
proved by almost a 70 per cent ma-
jority, 4,264 voting for the meas-
ure and 1,995 against.
Pluralities of more than 4,000
were given Albert J. Rapp, seek-
ing the prosecutor's office, and Jac-
ob B. Andres, candidate for sheriff.
Andres received 9,831 ballots as
against 5,746 for his Democratic op-
ponent; Daniel B. Sutton, while
Rapp, with 10,203 votes, overwhelm-
ed Robert H. Cavanaugh, who re-
ceived 5,441 votes.
Drain Race Is Close.
The closest race was for the of-
fice of drain commnissioner. Corne-
lius W. Tuomy, with 8,343 votes, had
a plurality of only 1,207 votes over
his Democratic adversary, Harrison
H. Caswell.

lican incumbent, defeated Leonard

Victory is Unique When Other
Strongholds Fall to
(By Associated Press)
DETROIT, Nov. 5.-The Republi-
can party of Michigan had emerg-
ed today from its most severe test
in nearly 14 years, with a victory
remarkably decisive in view of a
nation-wide drift that toppled the
standard-bearers of their party in
other states.
Never since the day of Wood-
ridge N. Ferris has the head of the
Republican state ticket been sub-
jected to so severe an attack.
Wilber M. Bruckr, the Republi-
can governor-elect, was the target
for a mass assault which was aided
by national conditions. William A.
Comstock, his Democratic oppon-
ent, stood upon a platform of pro-
hibition reform, in a year when two
ultra-dry Michigan congressmen
were defeated by wets. Brucker
won the governorship by a major-
ity of slightly more than 100,000.
The last time so small a lead xaas
accorded a Republican gubernator-
ial candidate was in 1916, when

5,000 Undergraduates Will Gather at 4 o'clock
in Front of Angell Hall to Fete
Michigan Gridmen.
"On to Harvard and Victory" will be the war-cry of some
5,ooo Michigan students at 4 o'clock this afternoon when they
assemble in front of Angell hall to do honor to their unbeaten
football team as it leaves for the widely heralded invasion of
The determined Michigan spirit--that the Maize and Blue
must triumph over the Crimson-has been fast gamin weight
during the past week. Today it will be expressed through famous
Michigan songs and yells in a historic fashion. The fighting
Wolverines will be cheered on to victory at an outdoor pep-
meeting, a parade up State street, and a send-of- at the Michigan
Central depot--in all, a demonstration of support unprecedented
in several college generations.
Saturday, Michigan will be the standard bearers for the
West in an intersectional clash that will hold the sporting
limelight of the day. The Wolverine's opponents will be no
'"gentle sons of Harvard" but a gang of battling Irishmen. Mich-
igan will have to give its utmost to win. Today, the student
body can play their part in setting what the Grand Old Man of
footbali--"Hurry-Up" Yost-calls "the vast background to
victory" by endowing the Maize and Bke gridders with the
real Michigan spirit--that spirit that vins.
A record-breaking crowd indicated from the preparations
made for the dernonstration. It has been schedul d for a time
that will interfere with few classes and othcr activities. Rain,
shine, or snow, the send-off will be held. In case the weather is
too bad for the outdoor rally, Hill auditesium will be utilized.
The Varsity squad of 36 re: will as i - from their last
pre-Harvard practice in Ann Arbor at about 4:15 in two open
trucks which will be driven up and parked in front of Angell
hall so that the crowd may have an uninterrupted view of the
gridders. State street will be blocked off from Williams to
Jefferson streets and given over to the enthusiastic rooters,
Pathe and M., G. M. sound-news cameramen will record the
sight and sound of the revival of Michigan spirit.
Pres. Alexander G. Ruthven, Coach Harry Kipke and
Capt. "Ducky" Simrall will address the crowd from the large
stone blocks at each end of the Angell hall steps. Every effort
is being made to have loud speakers installed on campus so the
crowd may hear the speeches without difficulty.
Twenty minutes before train time the trucks bearing the
squad will move off toward the Michigan Central station, lead
by a police escort and the band, with the students forming a
parade in, the rear. At the depot cheerleaders will help the
rooters stage a final demonstration and the band will play one
last selection before following the gridders into the train.
