Michigan Plays on Conference Field
in Final Battle, Novem-
ber 24
Michigan will play its first game as
a member of the "Big Ten" or confer-
ence colleges, against Northwestern
university at Northwestern field, Nov.
24, the Saturday before Thanksgiving.
This announcement, made by Ath-
letic Directors Lewis Omer of North-
western, and Phil Bartelme of Mich-
igan, carries more significance. than
the plain, statement of facts. It en-
ables Michigan, which had made up
the football schedule for 1917 before
the invitation to rejoin the conference
had been acted upon by the board of
regents, a game unexpected to those
who had not known that negotiations
had been pending with Northwestern
for several months.
Game to Be at Evanston
The game will be played on North-
western field, Evansgon, Ill., and it is
thought that Michigan's appearance on
a conference field after 12 years' ab-
sence from the fold will be received
According to word received from
University alumni in and around Chi-
cago, who have longed for an oppor-
tunity to see a Michigan team in action
against a conference team ever since
the memorable 2 to 0 defeat by Chi-
cago in 1905, the Varsity will have
plenty4of rooters in the stands on
Nov. 24
In the last game played in Chicago
'in 1995, the Maize and Blue lost by a
safety when Clark of Michigan, picked

Johnson and Robert R. Dieterle. The
parts which they are casted in the

their voices.
"Joshua," by Modest Moussorgsky,

syncopated rhythm, and the dash and
swing of typical Hebrew martial

group of songs by Robert Dieterle,

Ellen," by Max Bruch. This stirring
story of the siege and rescue of th

vantage to showv their ability. Miss
Johnson will be Fair Ellen, while
Robert Dieterle, will appear as Lord

Scotch melody, is the theme around
which the music is written, and cre-

Labadie Making
Good As Lawyer
Ex-Varsity Baseball Captain Made
Special Tax Attorney for Osage
Indian Agency
Pawhuska, Okla., Aug. 13.-George
V. Labadie, who graduated from the
University of Michigan in 1916, and
who was captain of the baseball team
in his senior year, has been appointed
special tax attorney for the Osage
Indian agancy. He is the first Osage
to be appointed to such a position and
he has been since his location here the
only active lawyer of his blood
Labadie has charge of settling with
the state tax claims aggregating $800,-
000. The state in 1910 asserted tax-
ing power over the Osage surplus
lands and finally won in federal court.
This entails handling of at least 20,-
000 tax papers, covering six years.
The Osages are the richest people on
earth and half the nation is yet un-
developed as to oil and gas.

in This Week; Eight Sets
The singles in the tennis tourna-
ment according to the present dope
will be completed by Thursday and the
first series of the first elimination con-
test in the doubles will be ushered in
on that date. With only two more
contests in the elimination series of
the singles to be played today the
semi-finals and the finals will be play-
ed on Wednesday and Thursday with-

The proposed schedule of the doub-
les, which has been chosen by lots,

worthy vs. Fitzpatrick and Penzotti
Doty and Kirkpatrick vs. Doolittle and
Sawyer, Egley and Burtiss vs. Daw-
ley and Klein.
In the contests of the third elim-
ination series Redfern and Fox have
placed themselves into the semi-final
class by winning their matches. Red-
fern defeated Langworthy by the score
of 6-0, 6-1 and has shown in his match-
es thus far a brand of tennis that is
equal to that of our Varsity stars. Fox
took two matches straight from Eg-
ley by the score f,-2, 6-3 and looks like
one of the contenders for the loving
At 4 o'clock this afternoon Kirkpat-
rick and Sutton will play off their
third elimination contest.
The doubles have only eight en-
tries and will bescompleted as quickly
as possible so as not to extend over
into the examination week. The exact
date of the contest will be announced

Thursday as previously stated. All
the players scheduled to play in the
doubles are urged to get in touch with

fore returning to the University the

laborers the work on the new million
dollar Union building is progressing
rapidly. The construction work on
the first floor is nearly done. The con-
tractors expect to have the entire

visit. Church is now on the repor-

Prof. Klingberg Asserts Teuton Expan-
sion Could Have Been Secured
by Honorable Means
"Germany will feel the keenest re-
morse for the blood she has squand-
ered when she realizes that the ex-
pansion which the Germans sought by
war was already within the nation's
grasp by honorable means," said Prof.
F. J. Klingberg, speaking under the
auspices of the League to Enforce
Peace in his lecture yesterday after-
noon. Professor Klingberg is con-
nected with the history faculty in the
University of Southern.California, and
has been at Ohio State University for
the past year.
"The problem of war is primarily a
problem of growth and decay," Pro-
fessor Klingberg continued. "A grow-
ing power, dissatisfied with the scanty
opportunity given by the existing re-
gime to new and enterprising parties,
strives to overthrow the superior fac-
tion which in turn fights to maintain
the 'status quo.' War Is the means of
making a satisfactory adjustment of
the two conflictig interests.
Must Now Pay with Blood
"Conflicting trade interests were
the cause of the present war. The in-
terests of Germany conflicted with
those of Great Britain and Russia in
the near East. The present war was
nearly precipitated in 1908, when Bos-
nia and Herzogovina were taken over
in the Balkans. But at that time Great
Britain met the demands of the Ger-
man foreign minister very favorably.
Germany got all that she asked for
in the near East which included do-
minion over Turkish trade and over
the erstwhile Portugese colonial em-
pire.e Hladishe only waited, these con-
cessions by Great Britain would in all
probability have given Germany all
the opportunity for expansion in trade
for which the German nation is nowy
spending so much blood.
"What the world should learn from
this war is that economic expansion
must be brought about by peaceful
and democratic means," concluded
Professor Klingberg. "The League to
Enforce Peace is in operation now, and
Germany must be taught to change her
views to fit it."
Will Serve on Psychology Committee
to Make Aviation Rates
Prof. John F. Shepard, of the psych-
ology department, has been called to
Washington to serveon a committee
of psychology to formulate classifica-
tions and rules for testing officers in
the aviation corps and other branches
of the United States service. He will
be associated in this work with some
of the leading psychologists in the
country and will probably return to
Ann Arbor with the opening of the
fall session.-
University Professor Resigns Position
Prof. W. R. Rathke has resigned his
position in the German department of
the University of Michigan to accept
a professorship in French at McAllis-
ter college in Minneapolis.

lowing resolutions which were read
