Plans for the freshman-sophomore
bag rush to be held Saturday, Dec. 8,
are nearing completion.
The Student council committee in
charge of the arrangements met at
the Union last evening and made sev-
eral decisions regarding the event.
Chief among these was a plan to order'
the bags this morning so that they
may be delivered Thursday evening.
The bags will probably cost four dol-
lars each.
A rough draft of the rules to be
used was presented and discussed at
the meeting. A few changes were
found necessary, and it is hoped that
these can be -made in time to have the
full set ready for publication Wednes-
day morning.
Both Classes To Hold Meetings
The hour for the pep meetings of
both classes was set for 7:15' o'clock
in the evening. Efforts will be made
to make the meeting as short as pos-
sible and they will be dismissed be-
fore 8 o'clock. R. D. Smith, '19E, will
explain the rules to the freshmen at
their gathering Wednesday and James
I. McClintock, '19, will preside
at the sophomore meeting Thurs-
day,' evening. Besides the Stu-
dent councilmen, a pep speaker will
be obtained for each meeting. Both
will be held in University hall.
Paint has been secured and the of-
ficials the competing classes elect
to lead them in the fight will be held
responsible for the painting of every
man under his command.
Judges Have Badges
Badges for all judges who are to
officiate have been printed as have 35
similar badges for other officials, to
hold the crowds back and to keep
half of the freshmen who are not tak-
ing. part in the fight from assisting
their classmates. These officials and
the 'judges will be appointed from
the junior and senior classes. The on-
ly requirement in regard to wearing
apparel will be that all participants
must wear tennis shoes. The penalty
attached to fouling will be that the
offender will be put out of the con-
Subscriptions Total $3,9386.40; Dona-.
tiois Range From 25 Cents
To 50 Dollars
Washtenaw county subscribed $936.40
more than its quota in the last day
of the Knights of Columbus drive, ac-
cording to the reports of the various
campaign managers at 8 o'clock last
The total amount of the subscrip-
tions, including $883 in pledges, was
$3,936.40. Donations ranging from
25 cents to $50 were collected by the
different committees.
Committees Report $3,053.40 in Cash
"We have $3,053.40 in hand, and the
pledges are as good as gold," stated
the Right Rev. Edward D. Kelly last
night. "I am confident that the total
amount will run $1,500 over the quota,
which was set at $3,000. There is
enough money promised to make good
on the $563.60 required to reach the
$4,500 goal." Members of the Ann
Arbor council of the Knights of Col-
umbus sent $500 to the supreme coun-
cil in September to be credited towar.
this drive.
Campaign Ends After Dexter Meeting
The Knights of Columbus war fund.
drive was brought to a close at a
meting in Dexter last night. Complete
reports from Dexter will be announced
later. Several of the committee have,
failed to turn in the canvass reports,

and the definite amount subscribed by
students in the University has not as
yet been ascertained.
Spanish Club Holds Meeting Tonight
El Ateneo Cervantes will hold its
xegular meeting at 7:30 o'clock tonight
in Lane hall.
This club is devoted to the de-
velopment of conversational ability in
the Spanish language. Membership is
open not only to Spanish students in.
the literary college, but also to all
other University students who have
had one year or more of Spanish or
whn can understand it

Ann Arbor's common council unan-
mously voted at the meeting held last
night to refer. to the city attorney a
communication received from the Stu-
dent council, charging that the local
taxi companies have been continually
violating the city ordinance by charg-
ing illegal rates.
Letter Cites Cases of High Prices
The communication was signed by
S. S. Attwood, '18E, president of the
Student council, and stated numer
ous cases where students had been
taken advantage of and made to pay
high prices by the taximen upon re-
turning from dances or parties. Ex-
amples were cited of students having
been charged double rates long before
the hour fixed by the law.
Attwood questioned in behalf of the
Student council that the taximen had
to raise their rates because they coul1
not continue a living existence under
the old rates. He suggested that the
taxi companies had no way of knowing
whether all the money is being turn-
ed in by the chauffeurs, and pointed
out that the complaints of the owners
might be remedied by an investigation.
He further suggested that the books
of the taxi companies be examined by
a public accountant in order that the
public may know whether the condi-
tions of the taxi companies are really
as distressing as they claim them to
City Attorney Investigating
The city attorney is now investigat-
ing other charges that have been re-
ferred to him against the taxi com-
panies and, as soon as he will be ready
to report, the ordinance committee
will start work on a new ordinance.
Date of Library Completion Uncertain
No definite date can be set for
the completion of the new Library
building according to those in charge
of the construction.
When the plans for the building
were made it was thought that the
work would be finished in June, 1918,
but shortage of labor, freight con-
gestion, and the cold weather of last
winter have made this impossible.
Lands Co-ordination and Unity of Pur-
pose; Has Bright Hopes
For Future
Paris, France, Dec. 3.-The inter-
allied war conference was closed to-
day with a brief address by Colonel E.
M. House, chairman of the American
mission. Colonel House, who deliver-
ed the closing address at the request
of Premier Clemenceau, said:
"M. Clemenceau, the president of the
French council, in welcoming the del-
egates to this conference, declared,
that we had met to work. His words
were prophetic. There has been co-
ordination and unity of purpose which
promises great results for the future.
It is my conviction that by this unity,
and by concentrated efforts, we shall
be able to arrive at the goal which we
have set out to reach."
Mr. House after expressing the
thanks of himself and his colleagues
for the great consideration shown
them added:
"America salutes France and her
heroic sons and feels honored to

fight by the side of so gallant a com-

Gives Up Position on Plea of Work;
Successor To lPe Named
S. S. Attwood, '18E, resigned as pres-
ident and a member of the Student
council at a meeting held yesterday
Attwood had scarcely mentioned his
intention of taking this step and the
action took the council by surprise.
Corresponding secretary C. A. Hart
'18E, presented a letter from the pres-
ident in which the latter asked to be
permitted to resign ,giving as his rea-
son the fact that his other work was
too heavy to allow him to give full
time to council duties.
After some discusion in which var-
ious members asked that Attwood re-
main a member of the body even if
he felt unable to give time enough to
the work to act as president, his resig-
nation was accepted. His successor
will be named soon.
H. C. Cramer, '18D, chairman of the
fall games board, has granted permis.:
sion by the council to postpone the
holding of the cane spree until spring.
This was asked on the grounds that
the participants would be so heated
from their exertion in the bag rush
that it would be unwise to hold a con-
test that would cause them to linger

Washington, Dec. 3.-An official dis-
patch from Rome today says Austro-
German attacks on the Italian front
have ceased entirely.
Although the Teutonic invasion was
launched amid rain and snow, the
German press attributes the sudden
inactivity to unfavorable atmospheric
conditions. The truth is, according to
the dispatch, that the Italian army,
reorganized after the crisis, is now
holding the line firmly..
Another offensive by the enemy on
a still larger scale is believed to be
imminent, however, and the Italians'
are preparing to meet it.

nouncement says:
"It is proposed that the new board

shall assist in the exploitation of all
state-wide patriotic activities.
