Proclaiming the arrival of "Fatima"
in Ann Arbor, a number of posters
appeared yesterday at various points
on the campus. On closer observa-
tion, it was found that the placards
were advertisements of the Spotlight
Vaudeville which is to be held at 8
o'clock Friday evening in Hill audi-
"Fatima" evidently is accompanied
by several other celebrated individ-
uals and organizations-"Julian El-
tings II," "Mad Quartet," "Camp Davis
Boys," "Harmony," "Custer Movies,"
"Jazz Jingles," and "Noise." The lady
from the 'orient obviously places much
trust in her powers to fascinate, for
beneath her picture there appears the
statement, "I'll see you there."
Tickets for the Vaudeville will bej
placed for distribution today at the
Union desk for members of the Union.
Members, by presenting their mem-
bership cards and paying their war
tax of three cents, will receive their
.tickets without further cost. Non-
members will be admitted upon pay-
ment of 25 cents, the war tax being
included in this amount.
All are requested to bring smokes
for the Sammies. The tobacco will be
deposited in barrels at the entrance
to the auditorium, and will be for-
warded to the soldiers by the Union.

service, said President Harry B.
Hutchins at the mixer held Sunday af-
ternoon at the Union. "Prepare your
selves, and, if you go into the service
as you should, you will come out
larger and better men."
President Hutchins spoke of the
special federal rulings which permit
dental, medical, and engineering stu-
dents of draft age to complete their
college courses by enlisting in their
respective reserve corps.
"It is their duty to take advantage
of this opportunity and join the re-
serve corps at once and thus be en-
abled to finish their education," he
President Hutchins exhorted the
men who would go into the service to
keep themselves mentally and morally
clean, and to avail themselves of ev-
ery opportunity to learn something
by which they might better serve their

Halifax, N. S., Dec. 10.-Figures of-

disaster show that 2,220 are dead,
1,920 unaccounted for, 6,000 wounded,
and 25,000 homeless.
A roaring blizzard, the third to
strike this afflicted city since the blast
from the exploding munition steam-
er burst from the northeast late to-
day. Raging with all the fury for
which these winter storams are noted,
it all but crushed the hearts of the
workers struggling against over-
whelming odds to alleviate the suffer-
ing. In tents, barracks, private
homes, public buildings, the homeless
have been given shelter. Reports
from the 6,000 wounded stated that for
them at least, the storm brought no
added dangers since they had been
protected. A
So serious is the problem of hous-
