Band, Cheer Leaders, and Chairman
Aid in Making Meeting
Michigan's last pep meeting was
marked by novelties.
Immediately after the program was
well under way the audience took
things in their own hands and from
then on proceeded to run the meeting
to suit themselves. Smith, Tuthill,
Sparks, Weston, Lambert, Boyd, and
Coach Douglass were forced to take
the platform and tell what they
thought about the coming game.
Several of the scheduled speakers
were unable to appear but those pres-
ent, assisted by James Schermerhorn,
Jr., '18, and the extemporaneous
speakers, made pup for anything that
might have been missing.
Poleske and Knowlson vied each
other in getting pep out of the crowd
and were well rewarded.
The band was present and aided
greatly the efforts of the crowd and
speakers in instilling pep into the
team for the coming battle. In addi-
tion to the usual college songs the
band played a selection at the begin-
ing of the program which was very
much appreciated by those present.
Shirley W. Smith, secretary of the
University, the faculty speaker for the
evening, was the first man to speak and
in his own unusual, but effective man-
her, gained the good graces of his au-
dience. Smith's original wit was well
received and his recital of a poem
quite new to the campus at the clos-j
ing was very stirring.
Walter K. Towers, '12L, spent a few
minutes complimenting the University
and comparing the present day with
the past. He then settled down to
the business at hand and told the team
and students just what was necessary
for them to do in order to make Sat-
urday a banner day for the institu-
James Schermerhorn, Jr., '18, was,
called by Waldo McKee, '18E, the pep-1
iest man on Michigan's campus since]
the days of Frank Murphy and his
speech did not show that he had less
than an hour to prepare for the occa-
sion. Schermerhorn's efforts were
confined to telling how to knock the
"L" out of Cornell and put the "again"
Waldo McKee, '18E, acted as chair-E
man of the evening and had a goodi
etory for every speaker.I
The committee which deserves cred-t
it for the success of the meeting was
composed of R. D. Smith, '19E; O. E.
Madison, grad., and J. W. Thomas

decades he has enjoyed unrivaled suc-

music center in the world. He has
devoted his time exclusively to the

Italian Headquarters in Italy, Nov.
8.-The bulk of the Austro-German
invading forces today presents a main
frontage of about 35 miles back of
and along the Tagliamento river, with
reconnaisance frontage thrust forward
eight or ten miles west of the river,
for the purpose of stealing for the
points of least resistance. This is pro-
ducing detached engagements but no
battle in force has yet occurred.
The Livenza river to which the Ital-
ian withdrawal is now progressing is
only one of a series of successive
parallels. The Italian army still has
in reserve large bodies of troops
which, however, naturally feel the ef-
fect produced by the recent retirement
of their main body.
Large re-enforcements at this mom-
ent therefore would render invaluable
assistance in the opinion of the milit-

Cincinnati, Nov. 8.--At the end of
two days following the prohibition
election in Ohio the result of whether
citizens will be subjected to a wet or
a dry state was still in doubt, but
with complete returns from the 88
counties, 67 of which. had turned in
official reports, the wets were leading
by a majority of 3,643 on the face of
The fact that none of the large
counties of the state were represent-
ed by the 67 which have made official
returns, and that the wets have an
apparent lead of 3,643 brought broad
smiles to the anti-prohibitionists, but
the drys are still claiming victory.
Officials of the prohibition movement
announced today that in case of de-
feat they would try it again next year.

OPENS ANNUAL SESSION
HOLD MEETING IN SARAH CAS-
WELL A NGELL
Women should be trained specifi-
cally for the work they are expected
to do. This point was emphasized by
Miss Helen Bennett, of the collegiate
bureau of occupations at the opening
session of the vocational conference
at Sarah Caswell Angell hall yester-
Many lines of work are suffering
for lack of competent women, Miss
Bennett said, especially is this true of
social service and household econo-
mics. Girls are urged to finish col-
lege because it is the trained minds
that are in demand.
Mrs. Lucinda Prince of Boston,
who originated the school for sales
girls, now affiliated with the Simmons
college, laid particular stress on the
need of specialized education for
women in business.
War Supper Served 250

There has been no cessation in the
retreat of the Italians across the Ven-
etian plains towards the new line of
defense on which is proposed to stand
and face the invading Germans and
Austro-Hungarians. The larger units
of the Italians are falling back without
molestation, according to the Rome
official communication, but consider-
able fighting has taken place in the
hills of Vittorio and at other points
in the north. The Berlin war office
says that on the Tagliamento river

out against the invaders were captur-

Fire Causes Damage at Nurses' Home
Damage to the amount of $2,000 was
the result of a fire at the nurses' home
at midnight last night. The blaze was
the result of sparks from the chim-
ney. About 25 of the nurses were in
the house when the blaze was dis-
covered and after an ineffectual at-
tempt to fight the flames the city fire
department was summoned. The en-
tire attic of the building was gutted
by the flames.
Sophomore Medics Elect Officers
The sophomore medical class has
elected the following officers: .presi-1

R. Smith; secretary, H. R. Moore;
treasurer, Joseph A. Kervin.
"University women will undoubtedly
stand with the men against an in-
crease in taxicab rates." This state-
ment was made by Anna Lloyd, '18,
president of the Women's league, after
a meeting of the judiciary council of
that body in which the proposed in-
crease was discussed. "Members of
the council are unanimous in the be-
lief that University girls will support
the men in resisting the exorbitant
charges of taxicab companies. In
view of the extreme need for economy
in everything, they are certain that
girls are more than willing to walk
to evening functions.
"Taxi rates are high enough for
the quality of the service the com-
panies give," is the opinion of Eilene
Lamb, '18, president of Newberry res-
idence. Helen Bourke, '18, president
of the Y. W. C. A., makes the follow-
ing statement: "Higher rates will cer-
tainly not meet with the approval of
University girls and I would rather
walk than pay the increase." Clarissa
Petrograd, Nov. 8. -- Government
forces holding the winter palace were
compelled to capitulate early this aft-
ernoon under the fire of the cruiser
Aurora and the cannon of the St.
Peter and St. Paul fortress across th
Neva river. At 2 o'clock this morning
the women's battalion which had been
defending the winter palace surrender-
ed. The workmen's and soldiers' del-
egates are in complete control of the
Prernier Kenensky was reported last
night at the Luga, 85 miles southwest
of Petrograd. Late yesterday evening
after the government forces had been
driven into the winter palace, the pal-
ace was besieged and a lively fire of
machine guns and rifles began.
The cruiser Aurorawhich was moor-
ed at the Nicolai bridge moved up
within range, firing shrapnel. Mean-
while the guns of the St. Peter and St.
Paul fortress opened fire.
Offers Good Target
The palace stood out under the glare
of the search lights of the cruiser and
offered a good target for the guns.
The defenders held out for four hours,
replying as best they could with ma-
chine guns and rifles.
There was spasmodic firing in other
parts of the city but the workmen's
and soldiers' troops took every means
to protect the citizens. The bridges
in the Nevsky Prospect which early -
in the afternoon were in the hands of
the government forces, were captured
and held during the night by the work-
men's and soldiers' troops.
Battle Spectacular One
The battle at the palace which be-
gan shortly after six o'clock was a
spectacular one. Armed cars of the
revolutionaries swung into action in
front of the palace gates, while flashes
from the Neva were followed by the
explosions of the shells from the guns
of the Aurora.
Petrograd, Nov. 8.-The general con-
gress of workmen's and soldiers' del-
egates of all Russia was convened here
