BANKS STRUGGLE TO
ACCOMODATE PEOPLE
Eight Million Persons Throughout
Country Write Names on
Application Blanks
Washington, Oct. 27.- The Liberty
loan apparently has passed the five
billion dollar mark.
A last day drive of titantic propor-
tions throughout the nation rounded
up more than one billion dollars and
this was believed to have carried the
total several hundred million dollars
beyond the maximum sum that treas-
ury officials had hoped for.
Federal reserve banks were strug-
gling today under an avalanche of last
minute subscriptions in- an effort to
obtain some idea of the grand total,
Indications are, however, that they
will not complete their tabulations for
several days. At least eight million
persons throught the country wrote
their name on application blanks. How
many more did so will not be known
until the final count several days
hence. The number may grow as high
as ten million.
Each of the 12 districts appeared to
have passed is minimum total, and
indications were that most of them
had exceeded the maximum as well,
The treasury's early tabulation of
returns, "based on estimates already
received from the reserve banks show-
ed a total of $4,555,000,000. This was
admitted to be an understatement of
the result, At the hour the tabulation
was made, subscribers were standing
in line in thousands of cities and
towns throughout the country, and
most of the 26,000 banks were swamp..
ed with unreported subscriptions.
"Subscriptions to the second Liberty
loan probably have passed five bil-
lions," said the treasury department.
"From every district came the report
that it was almost impossible to es-
timate totals."
GOVERNMENT HOLDS EXAMS
FOR 10,000 STENOGRAPHERS
Washington, D. C., Oct. 27.-The
government needs 10,000 stenograph-
ers, both men and women, to work in
the departments at Washington. Ex-
aminations are now being held by the
covil service commision ' to obtain
these workers. The entrance salar--
ies range from $1,000 to $1,200 a year.
Full information may be obtained from
the secretary of the board of civil
service examiners in your city.
Perry School Carnival bets $260
Pupils, parents, and teachers took
part in a carnival at the W. F. Perry
school Thursday night which netted
$260. The Parents-teachers association
of the school announces that the whole
of this sum will be devoted to the, war
library fund.

ALUMNA TO TELL
OF WOMEN'S WORK
Karoilne Ringer, '00, to Speak at o-
cAtional Conference, Stat.
Ing Nov. 8
Karoline Klager, '00, statistican for
the bureau of labor at Washington,
D. C., will speak on "Government Ser-
vice" at the Vocational conference to
be held under the auspices of the
Women's league Nov. 8 and 9.
Miss Klager will explain the var-
ious positions now open to women in
the service of the government. Wom-
en who are especially interested in
this work may arrange for a private
interview with Miss Klager through
the personal conference committee
Those who meet Miss Klager will
find her a woman of great personal
magnetism. She expends her energ-
ies for the assistance of women. At
present she is president of the Mich-
igan women's association and secre-
tary of the Women's club of Wash-
ington, D. C. On account of her great
interest in women and her personal
experience in government service,
Miss Klager is a person well fitted to
handle her subject.
ITALY BEING TESTED
IN AUSTRO-HUN DRIE
CRUCIAL HOUR TO DETERMINE
MASTERY OF PASSES
YET TO COME
Italy's mettle is being physically
testesd by the tremendous Teutonic
drive under the command of Emperor
Charles, of Austria, on the Isono
front. It seems that virtually the en-
tire Austrian army and mighty Ger-
man forces are participating.
From the first blows, the Italian
army has suffered a serious shock.
Berlin claims the defeat of this sec-
tion of the Italian forces, General Ca-
dorna's second army, from which it
announces the capture of no less than
60,000 men and 450 guns.-
These grave losses seem to bear out
the German claims as to the fate of
the Italian army, but apparently the
crucial hour has not yet come, which
will determine whether the Austro-
German forces can be held at the
mountain passes and thus prevented
from overflowing into the fertile plains
of Venezia.
Semi-official utterances reveal that
all possible preparations have been
made in Rome to meet the emergency.
MICHIGAN ALUMNUS ELECTED,
PRESIDENT OF SURGEONS
Dr. William J. Mayo, '84M, the emi-
net surgeon of Rochester, Minn., was
chosen president-elect of the clinical
congress of surgeons at a meeting of
that body held Friday in Chicago.
The congress urged that no mem-
bers avoid ,war service. Also it was
decided that any surgeons who en-
gaged in the split-fee settlements with
younger surgeons who brought them
cases would be barred from the con-
gress.

AMERICAN CASUALTIES
Army Ready with Rifles, Machine

to Repel Teutons
(By Associated Press)
Washington, Oct. 27.-American
troops entered the first line trenches
on the French front, singing, and
American artillery is shelling German
positions across No-Man's Land.
Announcement by General Pershing
that several battalions of his infan-
try were in the front line trenches,
supported by American batteries,
which already had been in action
against the enemy, fanned a new
flame of patriotism throughout the
country.
Casualties among the Americans are
to be expected. Reports from the,
front already show intermittent artll-
ery fighting and well aimed shells may
claim American victims any moment.
Absolute silence with which Secre-
tary Baker and other officials greeted
the news showed that although a
movement in the trenches has been ex-
pected, it was regarded only as the
final phase of the men's training-
a military finishing school--a school
of blood and iron.
German shells are breaking over a
sector of their trench, rifles, machine
guns and bombs as well as bayonets
ar'e in American hands, ready to meet
an enemy attack.
The silence of Secretary Baker in-
dicated that no official reports of the
occupation of the trenches have been
received. General Pershing is the
judge of all matters pertaining to the
training of his forces and he probably
did not inform the war department of
his plans in advance as every effort
was made to prevent the enemy from
learning what was on foot.

BAND BOUNCE NOV.13
Proceeds of Entertainment to Send
Musicians to Evanston with
Team,
Tuesday, Nov. 13, has been set as
the date for the Band Bounce this
year. It is planned to send the Var-
sity band to Evanston, Ill., with the
proceeds of the- entertainment. A
number of clever acts have been sub-
mitted and more are being turned
in each day.
'Catholic Students to Meet Tonight
Members of the Catholic Students'
club will hold the second meeting of
the year tonight in thei club rooms
next to St. Joseph's church. All mem-
bers are requested to be present to
elect officers for the coming year.

(Herbert G. Wilson.)
Oversubscriptions to the University's
quota of the Second Liberty Loan pass-
ed the $119,150 mark yesterday, with
a total purchase of $319,150 worth of
bonds.
The combined sale of bonds among
faculty and students from Friday
night to Saturday noon, amounted to
$49,150. Students subscriptions reach-
ed a total of $27,050 and faculty, $22,-
100, yesterday. I
Wom'en in the University subscribed'
from $30,000 to $35,000, approximately
one-third of the whole total, according
to an estimate by A. H. Paton, instruc-
tor in the economics department.
"There is 'no doubt in my mind that
the student total will reach the $130,-
000 mark when all the returns are in,"
asserted Francis Bacon, '02, executive
chairman of the University loan com-
mittee., "We feel very grateful to the
students for getting behind the work
as-they did, in real iMchigan fashion,
to the faculty and all those who bouimt
bonds, and those who gave their time
in the soliciting and speaking in the
campaign, we desire to thank public-
ly. The Liberty Loan drive in Michi-
gan was all and more than the com-
mittee expected."
Michigan Has Done Her Part
"We feel that Michigan has done
her part in the second Liberty Loan,"
said Prof. I. Leo. Sharfman, member
of the committee. "The results hav
been most gratifying."
The average student subseription
is about $25, while that o the faculty
