° Only 200 freshmen turned out for
the meeting to raise enthusiasm and
n organize for the bag rush to be held.
o Saturday afternoon.
H. C. Cramer, '18D, chairman of the
e student council committee in charge
s of the games, acting in place of R. D.
a Smith, '19E, who was unable to be1
present, presided and explained the
rules.
0 William S. Kammerer, '18L, evident-
e l1y took the small turnout seriously
~ for he spent considerable time telling
e the first year men how many should
n have turned out and why. He ended
up telling them what they should do
before Saturday if they wished to make
a showing. His speech was received
with considerable enthusiasm.
Rules Interpreted
, Cramer interpreted the rule re-j
* garding the drawing the bag over the;
goal and keeping it there as meaningI
S that the bag could be dragged back
from the goal after it had been put
over, if sufficient men were not kept
around it to guard it. "If the fresh-
men should capture a bag and get it
r over their goal, and then leave it un-
e guarded and the sophomores should
g go and get it and take it over their
' goal, it would be entirely fair."
n H. S. Hodge, '21E, was elected cap-j
tain of the rush and authorized to ap-
point 22 lieutenants to assist him. He
y declined to do this because he felt that
he did not know enough men outside1
t of his own college to do so fairly and
had the crowd suggest men to lead
them.

Nation Eats War
1read Next Week
War bread will come to the nation
next Monday. Starting then every
baker must bake his bread according
to gevernment regulations and a set
formula. The loaves must be stand-
ard in size, and a fixed price is soon,
to be established.
The new bread will be a much bet-
ter food than the war bread of Europe.
It will not be as sweet nor as light as
the present loaves, and will contain
less milk, sugar, and shortening. The
amount of ingredients to be used is to
be determined by the food adminis-
tration. Bakers claim that the public
will not like the new bread.

Further Organization
After the main meeting had been
dismissed the captain-elect and his
assistants met for further organization
and consideration of the contest. They
decided that because of the small,
turnout it would be advisable to hold
another meeting Friday night. This
meeting will be held in University
hall itpermission be secured to use
the building, anr hold the meeting.
It was discovered late last night
that H. S. Hodge, the man elected by
the freshmen to direct them in the
bag rush, is virtually a sophomore in
the engineering college. As a result
H. C. Cramer, '18D, chairman of the
student council committee in charge
of the bag rush, declared the fresh-
men's leader ineligible to participate
in the activities as a\first year man.
Hodge has had some work at Ypsilan-
ti and entered the University with ad-
vanced credit, enough to make him a
sophomore in the engineering college.
In making his decision, Cramer was
carrying out a definite rule in the con-
stitution of the student council which
makes provision for just such a con-
tingency as this.
Sophomores will meet at 7:15 o'clock
this morning in University hall to
elect a captain and lieutenants to lead
the second year class in the bag rush
Saturday.
James 1. McClintock, '19, of the Stu-
dent council will be present to take
charge of the meeting and aid in the
organization. James Schermerhorn,
Jr., '18, will act as pep arouser.
OM IIISSIONER ASKS SCHOOLS
TO HOLD PATRIOTIC SERVICES
Washington, Dec. 5.-Commissioner
of education P. P. Claxton has issued
a request that all schools, both public
and private, set aside Sunday, Dec. 9,
which has been chosen by the national
council of women as "Community
Music Day," as a day for patriotic
services. Plans for the day include
appropriate exercises and the singing
of patriotic songs. This,,.it is thought,
would lend unity of thought and pur-
pose to those participating and ,would
be fitting in this time of stress.
