Organizations Not Represented at
First Dinner Friday Will Meet
at Union Tomorrow
Not a single member of the faculty
or student body will be able to give
as an excuse for not purchasing Lib-
erty bonds the fact that he was given
no opportunity. Two moves of the
committee in charge of the campaign
were announced today that will make
it possible for every man to do his
just share.
In the first place, there will be a
second meeting at the Union Monday
at 6 o'clock, at which organizations
not represented at the dinner last Fri-
day will be expected to send mem-
bers. Although there were 120 peo-
ple present at the last meeting, there
are still 52 fraternities, boarding
houses, campus societies, and soror-
ities which have as yet made no for-
mal effort to assist.
The second move is in behalf of the
faculty men. A number of the com-
mittee soliciting the teachers for sub-
scriptions have reported that they
have not had 'sufficient time in which
to see all members of their depart-
ments. As a result, another and final
drive will be made next Tuesday and
those who through no fault of their
own are thus far delinquent, will be
enabled to do their share.
The meeting at the Union will be
in the form of a dinner. A tentative
program has been announced consist-
ing of speeches by Prof. I. Leo Sharf-
man, Frank Bacon, and Miss Anna
Lloyd; a song by Robert Hamilton,
and a skit by Robert T. McDonald,
'18, and N. H. Nibson, '18E. Prof. John
C. Parker will act as toastmaster.
Although the success of the entire
program is by no means assured, the
committee has expressed confidence
that the full quota will be secured.
The most encouraging news, perhaps,
that has come in, is the announcement
of the Board of Regents to purchase
$50,000 worth of bonds. Of this
amount, $40,000 will be accredited to
the University fund. This subscrip-
tion brings the total amount offered
by the Regent's during the year up to
For the convenience of those inter-
ested in the campaign, it is planned
to place a chart in the Engineering
building next Monday showing the to-
tals subscribed. This board will be
erected Monday.
The first student subscribtion to be
received was offered voluntarily today
by Myron W. Smith, '21E. Smith came
to the office of Mr. Frank Bacon and
announced his intention to take his
share of the fund.
Large Crowd Attends Union Dance
The regular Saturday night dance
was held last night at the Union. The
affair was attended by an unusually
large number, all the tickets being

New York, Oct. 13.-Reports of in-
cendiarism in connnection with a dis-
astrous water front fire which des-
troyed an elevator and nearly 700,-
000 bushels of grain in Brooklyn to-
day were received when the fire chief
issued a statement saying that the
cause of the blaze will be rigidly in-
vestigated. The property loss is es-
timated at more than $1,200.000.
"There have been 56 water front fires
in New York city, recently and it is
improbable that all resulted from na-

Heavy Rains Block Moves of
Armies on Plain in




The Board of Regents at a meeting
yesterday made provisions whereby
those instructors of the University
now serving in the regular army or
in the training camps will receive a
salary equalling the difference be-
tween their army pay and the pay
received here.' The places of the men
will be open for them upon their re-
turn from the war.
The board also voted that in case
any student in college was called by
draft during any semester in which
he does not receive credit, his Uni-
versity fees should be refunded.
The resignation of Dr. C. B. Kinyon,
professor in the Homoeopathic school
since 1897, was accepted, and will go
into effect at the expiration of the
present 'college year. Dr. T. G. Yoe-
mans of St. Joseph, Mich., was ap-
pointed as his successor. %
Lieut. George C. Mullen was form-
ally appointed to the professorship of
military training and science. At the
present time Lieutenant Mullen has
1,800 students enrolled in his training
Prof. George E. Myers, superintend-
ent of the continuation schools in New
York City, was appointed professor of
industrial education in the University.
Professor Myers, who is expected to
arrive in Ann Arbor shortly, will in-
struct students preparing to teach
manual training in the high shools
and colleges of this state, and will co-
operate with the engineering shops
and laboratories in the furtherance
of technical work in such courses.
Franklin C. Carter of Cuba, Mo., was
appointed to the Detroit Edison com-
pany fellowship in chemical engineer-
ing, which carries a yearly stipend of
$500, with an additional $100 for ex-
penses. Several fellowships were can-
celed because of the fact that Prof. A.
H. White and other members of the
chemical engineering faculty, under
whom the work of holders of these
fellowships was conducted, were in
the United States service or away

Germany's most striking military
move since the attack which resulted
in the capture of Riga was started
Friday on this same Russian front
when German troops were landed at
Oesel and Dago Islands at the mouth
of the Gulf of Riga..
The heavy units of the main Ger-
man battle fleet were brought up to
assist in this operation and some of
the dreadnaughts are silencing the
Russian short batteries. The Russian
forces are hampering the progress in
every way possible, but considerable
numbers of Germans appeared to have
obtained a footing on the northwest
coast of Oesel Island and on the south-
ern shores of Dago Island.
Petrograd speaks of the German
movement as a stubborn effort to clear
the entrance of the Gulf of Riga near
the Courland mainland. Whether it is
much more than this can hardly be
determined by the moves made so far.
The heavy rain in Flanders has
turned the plain into such a sea of
mud that neither of the hostile armies
seem able to move. Whether the
weather and the condition of the
ground were the sole reasons which
impelled the German's to refrain from
meeting the British advance with
counter attacks is considered doubt-
ful in view of the many corroborative
reports of the lowered state of the
German army morale.
On the French front the Germans
contented themselves with bombard-
ments in the Verdun region where
there has been heavy infantry fight-
ing recently. The efforts here were
very violent and were checked by the
Washington, Oct. 13.-The tardiness
of the country in responding for the
second Liberty loan is causing deep
concern to officials here. President
Wilson and his cabinet are watching
the campaign with great interest.
With half of the time gone, treasury
officials estimated tonight that not
more than $600,000,000 had been sub-
scribed and they considered this es-
timate liberal. It has become appar-
ent that a new impetus must be given
to the campaign if the subscription is
to apprpximate the five billion dollars
hoped for.
The whole weight of the administra-
tion is to be thrown into the balance
for the rest of the campaign and the
drive of dimensions unapproached
heretofore is to be made during the
two weeks that remains before the
closing of the subscription books.
A new factor calculated to hearten
the workers will be introduced into
the campaign within 24 hours. The
$600,000,000 estimate by the treasury
takes into consideration all "optimis-
tic and official" estimates from the
various districts and that sum is only
12 per cent of the $5,000,000,000 de-
This would leave $4,400,000,000 to
be raised within the next 12 working
days, an average of $367,000,000 per
day if the $5,000,000,000 is to be ob-
tained and $2,400,000,000, an average
of $200,000,000 a day if only the min-
imum of $3,000,000,000 is subscribed.
Polonia Literary Circle to Meet
Polonia Literary circle, an associa-

tion for Polish students, holds its first
get-together meeting of the year at
2:30 o'clock this afternoon in
the red room of Lane hall. Plans for
the coming year will be discussed at
this time.

Reserves Get Chance in Last Half and
Continue Piling Up
the Score
Michigan encountered very little re-
sistance in massacreing Mount Union
yesterday. The Wolverines crossed
over the Ohioans' boundary line ten
times and accomplished this feat for
the first time after only six minutes
of play. The figures at the close of
the contest stood: Michigan, 69;
Mount Union, 0.
The size of the score is no indica-
tion of the brand of football displayed
by Yost's gridders. After the first
touchdown the Wolverines had a lit-
tle difficulty in getting started because
of the initial spurt of defensive foot-
ball played by Mount Union. The vis-
itors line was a problem for the Maize
and Blue aggregation and as a result
they only scored once in the first
In the second quarter the Wolver-
ines braced. considerably. Froemke
replaced Rye and. straightway pro-
ceeded to race 35 yards around left
end to score Michigan's second touch-
down. The speedy little half back re-
ceived the leather on a pass and head-
ed straight for the visitors' goal posts.
Wieman kicked the goal.
Weston Runs 55 Yards
At this juncture Mount Union kicked
off to Weston, who was put in to re-
lieve Genebach. The Soo boy carried
the ball back 10 yards before he was
downed. After two trials Froemke
made it first down. Wieman added
eight yards and then Cohn made it
first down again. Michigan made one
more down which put the Wolverines
on Mount Union's 15-yard line.
Froemke carried the leather over for
the third touchdown. Weston then
added two more touchdowns to the
string, making it five altogether. The
plucky little quarter contributed the
most spectacular play of the game
when he raced 55 yards around left
end for his second touchdown. Wie-
man kicked goal every time. The half
ended with no further serious damage
done to the Ohioans. The score at
the end of the first half: Michigan, 35;
Mount Union, 0.
Mount Union opened the third quar-
ter with a kick off. Cohn carried the
ball back eight yards. On the first
down Michigan was penalized 15 yards
for holding. Weston ran around right
end and made up 10 yards. An at-
tempted forward pass failed and Wie-
man made it first down. On the very
next play Weston sauntered across
for his third touchdown. Wieman
kicked goal and then contributed his
first touchdown of the game, after run-
ning 40 yards with the ball. Two more
tallies, one by Weston and other by
Cruse were chalked up against Michi-
gan in this session. Score: Michigan,
63; Mount Union, 0.
Reserves Used
In the last quarter the game lagged.
Mount Union was all tired out chas-

ing the Wolverines over the field and
resorted to a kicking game. Besides,
Coach Yost was pretty generous with
his allotment of players and sent in
everybody but one, and that man was
in no condition to play. The Wolver-
ines scored only once. Culver failed
to kick goal.
Michigan was penalized six times
for holding but had no difficulty in
making up these losses. Only one for-
,ward pass was completed, the honor
going to the Wolverines.
Tad was in fine kicking condition
and made every chance -count. Weske
was the only regular who played out
the whole game. Garrett was sent in
the latter part of third quarter to
replace Wieman.
Weston was .a marked man. His
sensational playing pleased Yost and
the coach was glad 'to discover a
worthy substitute for Cliff Sparks.
Cliff was hurt in the Kalamazoo game
and will probably not work out in
