turns' mass meeting at 2 o'clock this
afternoon in Hill auditorium, to give
play by play the returns from the
Michigan-Northwestern football gaine
at Evanston.
The 5,000 students and faculty mem-
bers who did not go to the scene of
the gridiron battle will be able to
"see" the game as it progresses, with
all the reality of a game, and none
of the chilliness. Cheer leaders and
music have been provided. From the
sale of tickets yesterday .afternoon,
indications are that a large proportion
of the students will attend the meet-
ing. Proceeds from the 20 cent ad-
mission fee charged will be given to
the Student Friendship war fu'd to
help carry the fund in Michigan to a
successful close,
The doors will open at 1:30 o'clock
sharp, and the returns will begin com-
ing in at 2 o'clock. -
"We expect that the students will
take advantage of the scheme, which is
novel and has never been offered in
this particular way to Michigan here-j
tofore. The campus has an opportun-
ity to help a worthy cause, to make the
Sammies' Christmas a happier one,"
said L. Mason Lyon, '19M, chairman of
the committee in charge.

department Secretary Baker said to-
night, in the first official statement
he has authorized in connection with
the program being made to increase
General Pershing's forces.
Refase To State Number of Troops
Mr. Baker declined, however to state
the number of troops forwarded or to
indicate whether he anticipated delay
from this time. Movements of the
forces he said depended on two ele-
ments, the training and equipment of
the men, and the availability of ships."
As Many Men Overseas as Expected
"As fast as they are ready, ships
and men will be combined," the secre-
tary said. "As many American troops
are now overseas as was expected at
the beginning of the war,"
Mr. Baker indicated that an oflicial
statement of the number of American
troops in France was not to be ex-
pected at any time during the war.
