UNITED STATES BANKS
New York, Oct. 3.-Proof that Ger-
man money was furnished in this
country by Count von Bernstorff to
Bolo Pasha, under arrest as a spy,
will be forwarded tomorrow to the
French government. The attorney-
general who investigated Bolo Pasha's
activities here at the request of form-
er Ambassador Juserand said it was
a preliminary report submitted by him
to the Ambassador at Washington
which resulted in the arrest of Bolo
Pasha in Paris.
"The conclusions will be sub-
stanciated by a mass of documentary
evidencebincluding the reproduction
of the bank's checks recorded and
other proofs of the disposition of the
erman money furnished Bolo Pasha
n this country by former Ambassador
von Bernstorff," stated the attorney-
Bolo Pasha succeeded in getting at
least $1,600,000, over to the French
government through J. P. Morgan and
other banking institutions, the attor-

Girls to Be Instructed in Knitting
Girls desiring to learn to knit for
the Red Cross will be given 'free in-
struction Wednesday, gct. 10, at the
Ladies' library on East Huron street.
The local Red Cross considers it
most important that the girls respond
to the call for more knitters as the
Red Cross work which was undertaken
last spring by the Michigan women is
not yet completed. More sweaters,
wristlets, and socks are needed for
the naval reserves who left the Uni-
versity last May.
Ann Arbor's new apportionment for
the Red Cross work is 225 outfits,
which must be in by Nov. 1. An out-
fit consists of muffler, sweater, wrist-
lets, and socks.
Opportunities Offered College Women
College women are greatly in de-
mand to fill responsible positions.
Banks and insurance companies are
asking the bureaus affiliated with the
Association of Collegiate Alumnae for
college women. Industrial laboratories
are anxious to employ women who
have majored in physics, chemistry,
mathematics, or dietetics.

BIG LINE-UP FOR
1,200 Students Answer Roll Call at
LIEUT. MULLEN DIVIDES
MEN INTO TWO DIVISIONS
All Desiring to Enroll Should
port at This Afternoon's
More than 1,200 students answered
the first roll call at 4:30 o'clock yes-
terday afternoon at Waterman gym-
nasium for the new military training
classes under Lieut. George C. Mul-
len of the United States army.
Lieutenant Mullen addressed the
men and divided them into two groups.
One group contains 900 men who have
had no previous military training. The
second division is composed of 300
students who are experienced with
military science and tactics and can
A second meeting will be held at
4:30 o'lock this afternoon outside of

weather is unfavorable the men will
congregate in the basement of the
gymnasium. All students who were
not present at the first roll call and
who desire to enroll in the courses
are urged to report promptly this aft-
ernoon. Each student must have the
special military card properly filled
out before registering in the courses.
The men who have had no military
experience will be lined up according
to their height this afternoon and sep-
arated into squads of seven each.
Men who have had experience will
then be assigned to each of these
squads and act as instructors.
Keep To the Right
"Keep to the right."
Those are the words on the sign
post at the intersection of North Uni-
versity avenue and State street.
And they did it.
But they didn't do it of their own
free will. The force applied in this
particular case was the rather insist-
ent yell of a group of sophomores who
happened to be around when the two
freshmen passed by on their -way
across the diagonal walk.
After circulating around the sign
post for a few minutes until they were
approaching dizziness, they were al-
lowed to go on their way unmolested.

GERMANS LONGING FOR
PEACE, ASSERT CAPTIVES
Canadian Headquarters in France,
Oct. 3.-Reports that the rank and file
of the enemy troops have a great long-
ing for peace is confined by.every pris-
oner captured. One of their chief
grievances is the failure of their high-
er officers to take risks. Even com-
pany commanders freely depute to the
under officers their duty while in the
trenches, and remain well back from
This is so different from the rela-
tions between our officers and men
that it is freshly impressed on the
minds of the Germans on every oc-
casion when there is hand to hand
fighting, in which our officers invari-
ably lead their men, while the Ger-
man officers seldom do so. They are
not actuated by fear and it must be
assumed that? they are obeying orders
in thus hanging back.
Great losses of the German officer
class early in the war may have made
it necessary to conserve their leaders.
Colleges Encourage Food Conservation
Many colleges are offering graduate
fellowships to encourage food con-
servation. The University of Chicago

ing 1917-1918. Candr~tes must hold
a bachelor's degree and be equipped to

Continued export of coal to Canada

DECREASE OF 1,300

EXPECTED LOSS WILL BE
THAN IN EASTERN
ABOUT EQUAL TO 1916
Medical School Suffers Least;
many College Is Hard.
Enrollment in the University this
year will probably be about 1,300 less
than last year, if the registration sta-
tistics at the present time can be used
as a criterion. A general falling off
has been noted in all schools and cQl-
leges on the canpus, though this de-
crease is not as great as in some of the
eastern universities. The freshman
enrollment, with the exception 'of the,
Medical school, is about normal.
Lits Number 000 Less
The registration in the literary col-
lege yesterday was a little less than
that of last year at the corresponding
time, though the enrollment up to date
shows that there are 600 men fewer
than last year, while the number of
women is about the same. More than
1,500 men and 1,000 women are en-
Engineers Lose 200
The engineering college is about 00
behind the enrollment corresponding
to the present date, with 1,111 me
registered as opposed to the 1,303 of
last year. The freshman class will
probably be as large as the previous
year, though a falling off 'in the upper
classes is expected. The number of
chemical engineers enrolled is excep-
Enrollment in the Law school has
fallen off considerably.and present in-
dications point to a small senior class
next year.. Only 154 have enrolled,
while the registration for the previous
year totaled 303.
The Medical school has registered
283, whereas its total registration for
the last academic year was about 330.
This school has suffered the least of
all from the decrease due to the war,
and officials believe there will be a
full attendance in the upper classes,
while the freshman class promises to
be deficient in number, only 11 men
College of Pharmacy Hard Hit
In proportion to its size the College
of Pharmacy has been the hardest hit
of all, with an enrollment of but 64
as against 103 of last year. The Grad-
uate school has registered 116, where-
as a year ago it numbered 200. The
dental college, which a year previous
had enrolled 345, now has but 282.
The enrollment of the women of the
University, according to Dean Myra B.
Jordan, is equal to that of last year,
though there is a considerable de-
crease of women entering on advance
credit, since but 78 have registered,
while there were 150 last year at a
The opinion among the University
officials is that a shortage equal to
that in some of the eastern universities
is not feared. In some cases the en-

China Wants to Keep German Statue
Pekin, Oct. 3.-Suggestions that the
von Ketteler monument erected to
commemorate Baron von Ketteler, the
German minister, who was killed
while trying to mediate with the
Chinese before the Boxer outbreak in
1900, be torn down and shorn of its
inscription, since China has entered
the war against Germany, have not
met with favor.
The monument was erected chiefly
in honor of Baron von Ketteler, but
in reality is also a memorial to all
foreigners killed in the Boxer upris-
ing. It is a giant marble arch span-
ning Hatamen street, one of the chief
thoroughfares in the Tartar city.
