Receipts From Festival Will Be Used
For Northwestern Trip of
Organization
"Jazz" music, original songs, a sax-
ophone sextette, a specialty song and
dance number, an athletic act, a car-
tooning skit, a minstrel quartette,
short selections by the band, and sev-
eral operatic arias will feature the
program of the Band Festival, to be
given at 8 o'clock Thursday evening
in Hill auditorium.
"This is going to be the snappiest
Band Festival that the campus has
ever seen," said Gerald F. Nye, '19,
general chairman. "More stars are
taking part than ever before, and the
general talent is unusually good."
' The program for this year's festival
differs materially from that of last
year's Band Bounce. The band selec-
tions have been reduced a good deal,
and a number of inovations have been
introduced. The committee in charge
has planned to make the affair snappy
from start to finish.
Though a number of the ,students
who took part last year are no longer
on the campus, a new series of actors
have come to the front to take their
places. There are a few members of
last year's cast who will again be
,seen behind the footlights.
Tickets for the festival are now on
sale in the hands of committeemen,
and, according to reports,.are selling
well.
CHINESE MEN FIGHT BESIDE
SAMMIES IN YEAR - BALME
Columbus, Nov. 19.--Chinese troops
will be fighting with the Sammies
against the Germans within a year,
according to Dr. Harold Balme, head
of the medical school of Shantung un-
iversity.
"The reason that Chinese troops
have been poor fighters in the past
is because they have no traditions to
uphold," said Doctor Balme in a talk
before the students of Ohio State uni-
versity. " never saw a race bet-
ter able to stand pain, and they should
prove invaluable in the war," continu-
ed the doctor.
Doctor Balme is touring the country
in an effort to interest the students
in medicine and missionary work in
China where there are only three hos-
pitals for 50,000,000 people.
PROF. I. L. SHARFMAN TELLS
MENORAH SOCIETY OF DUTY
"Never has a nation been more just-
ified in entering war than we are,"
said Prof. I. L. Sharfman of the econ-
omics department, Sunday night in a
lecture before the Menorah society on
"The Duty of the Hour."
Professor Sharfman commended the
students for the part they took in the
Liberty Loan campaign, and appealed
to them' in behalf of the present "Y"
campaign.
"This is a struggle to enforce peace,
a durable peace," he said. "We now
have the task to put out of the way
the greatest disturber of this peace,
and it is the duty of every American
to do his bit."

risks and that he took them to arouse
public sentiment, not only at home but
in France, Italy and America.

utterance, the premier added, and had
been submitted to the war cabinet.
The premier told the house that ar-
rangements had been made to supply

the war council.

RAIROADSWANTWHOLE:
HOG IN RATE BATTLE
IF INCREASE IS GRANTED, ROADS
WILL ASK FOR MORE
SOON
Washington, Nov. 19.-Arguments in
the eastern railroads 15 per cent ad-
vance rate case before the interstate
commerce commission closed today
with a statement of counsel for the
road that even if this is granted they
will ask soon for another advance of
approximately 15 per cent in class and
commodity rates and 10 per cent a
ton on coal and coke.
With both sides agreed that the rail-
roads' income had increased, the chief
point of contention .'as whether the
additional revenue had offset the in-
creased cost of operation. An attor-
ney speaking for the roads said the
last advance had failed by about $120,-
000,000 to cover the increased expens-
es of the 38 systems.
Counsel for the shippers maintain-
ed that by use of the additional reven-
ues and surplus the roads would not
be in worse condition than other bus-
inesses and that today under such cir-
cumstances they should not expect to
impose additional burden on the ship-
pers.
1000 MEN UNFIT FOR ARMY -
TO BE DISCHARGED AT WACO
Camp MacArthur, Waco, Texas,
Nov. 19.-Unfit men, numbering 1,000
are to be discharged from camp here
soon was learned today when a re-
port of the physical examinations was
given out. Of these, half are among
the enlisted troops and the remainder
are men who have been selected for
service.
Officers are rightly shocked at -the
alarming conditions found among men
who have been passed by local draft
boards, since 500 of the 3,000 men who
came here from Camp Custer are to be
sent home.
The men will not be sent home im-
mediately, but, beginning at an early
date, ten men will be discharged from
camp daily. ,
