The battered stone water jug,
symbol of the bitter 49-year old ri-

will be merely one of the issues at
stake, however, along with an al-
most certain decisive turn in the

and a personal feud between two of
the nation's top grid coaches.
Both the Wolverines and the Go-
phers have a lot to gain, or a lot
to lose, by what happens at the

noon. Victory for either squad

Coeds' Reign
Broken After
Two Years
Increased Civilian
Enrollment Seen
More men than women-for the
first time in two years--have enrolled
for the fall semester, University offi-
cials announced yesterday.
According to figures based on the
first three days of registration, 5,504
male students, including military
trainees, and 5,078 women have en-
rolled. On the corresponding date
one year ago there were 3,918 men
and 4,427 women.
More Civilians
Civilian enrollment has increased
41 per cent, a jump of 104 per cent
is recorded for civilian male enroll-
ment whereas women on campus
show a 15 per cent gain.
Total enrollment is 10,582 for the
fall, a 27 per cent increase over the
total of 8,344 a year. ago. Civilian
students now number 8,947. Last
year 6,324 civilians enrolled. There
are 552 Army trainees, 969 Navy and
114 Marine trainees registered for
1945-46. Corresponding enrollments
a year ago were 1,030 Army, 840 Navy
and 150 Marine trainees.
Military Dwindles
As has been expected since the end
of the war, military enrollment has
decreased. Effective today, the V-12
is being consolidated with the Naval
Reserve Officers Training Corps. The
Judge Advocate General's School is
scheduled to be conducted on campus
only until Jan. 26.
The professional schools report a
high jump in enrollment. Veterans
account for part of the increase, and
women too are invading the profes-
sional field in greater numbers, with
30 women enrolled in the freshman
law class alone.
Figures Incomplete
Before the semester began, appli-
cations for admittance to the Uni-
versity resulted in a prediction that
more than 1,000 veterans would en-
roll for the fall term. Approximately
900 foreign students were expected to
During the past week more than
900 freshman women and 450 new
men students have been introduced to
University facilities and the campus.
Because enrollment is not yet com-
plete, more detailed figures, includ-
ing the number of veterans on cam-
pus, will be announced Saturday.
Helen Douglas
Will Discuss
World Peace
Helen Gahagan Douglas who re-
cently made headlines by introduc-
ing a bill in the House of Represent-
atives aimed at eliminating race
prejudice, will open the Oratorical
Association lecture series Tuesday at
Hill Auditorium.
The bill, prompted by the racial
discrimination of the DAR against
Hazel Scott, Negro singer, would re-
move the organization's Constitution
Hall from the tax-free lists.
Left Stage
Mrs. Douglas, an actress and sing-
er, left the stage to enter the field of
politics. "It all started," Mrs. Doug-
las said. "when I became so indig-
nant about certain things that I felt
I just had to do something about it."
Topic of her addresswill be "The
Price of World Peace." A democratic

Representative from California, she
is a member of the House Foreign
Affairs Committee.
Mrs. Douglas has travelled widely
both in this country and in Europe
and the Orient. Realizing the threat
of Fascism to world peace, she re-
turned to the states and attempted to
awaken Americans to the danger.
