"SHADOW SOUP" FED
Life Would be Impossible Without Red
Cross and Y. X. C. A. Pack-
ages for Prisoners
Washington, Oct. 17.-Minister Mor-
ris at Stockholm today cabled the
state department news of the arrival
there of Willoc Charles Smith of Nor-
walk, Conn., who escaped from a Ger-
man internment camp' at Kiel and
brought word that American prisoners
in Germany were starved but for food
sent them by the Red Cross and Y.
M. C. A.
Smith was a horseman on the Brit-
ish steamer Esmeralda, captured by
the German raider Moewe, and was
carried into Germany just before the
United States broke diplomatic rela-
tions. No details concerning his es-
cape were given by the Minister.
"Smith said," read a state depart-
ment announcement of the escape,
"that without the food packages sent
by the Y. M. C. A. and the Red Cross,
prisoners would not be able to live,
as the daily food rations consist of a
slice of black, sour bread and a drink
of cold coffee for breakfast, and for
dinner and supper about a pint and
a half of of warm soup, apparently
consisting of water and turnips."
NEW DRAFT TAKES ONLY
UNSKILLED WAR WORKERS
PROiRAI AWILL BE ANNOUNCE
WHlEN APPROVED) BY
Washington, Oct. 17. - A compre-
hensive new plan for applying the
army selective draft which escaped
first, only men without dependents
and of no particular value to war in-
dustry, and used various grades of
dependency of industrial value from
which future drafts, would be made
strictly on the seletive basis, has
been worked out tentatively by the
Provost Marshall General's office and
discussed with the president.
The plan it was learned, today, was
submitted recently to a conference of
civilians who directed exemption board'
activities in a number of states and
received endorsement of most of them.
They are now discussing the proposed
plan with their state governors.
In selecting men for examination,
boards would first take all men phy-
sically fit having neither dependants
nor value in essential war industries.
When this class was exhausted,
draft authorities would draw on the
classes having the slightest depend-
ency claims and the least value in es-
sential industries. No class would be
exempted as such but valuable men
would l placed. so that they would
not be called until the need for sold-
iers became more urgent and all the
less essential classes were exhausted.
It is understood the entire program
will be made known a soon as it is
completed and approved by President

A request for the words of the "Vic-

There have been numerous other oc-

Honor Societies to Buy Bonds Jointly
Nearly all the honor societies have
signified their intentions of clubbing
together to buy bonds.
The Chinese club showed their
American Michigan spirit by the pur-
chase of $1,050 worth of the issue.
Volunteer organizations who will
take charge of the campaign tent at
State street and University avenue are
being sought by the committee. The
Trigons have the tent management
this week. The. purpose of the sta-
tion at the State street corner is to
give students an opportunity to sign
applications for the loan.
"Why can't I take a $100 bond?"
asked one student when he signed for
a $50 certificate, "If there hadn't been
a world's series, I might have."
This instance, according to the com-
mittee, is characteristic of the general
student extravagance which coula
well help save Michigan's repu'tation
in filling her loan allotment.
Campaigning among the faculty will
be renewed today in a personal can-
vass. The drive will be brief and will
give every faculty man a chance to
do his bit.
Ann Arbor's subscription to the sec-
ond Liberty loan reached a total of
$395,450, more than two-thirds of the
county's quota, at noon yesterday. The
total of bonds purchased in Washte-

MEDICAL SCHOOL HAS GAIN OF
16 STUDENTS OVER
With a total enrollment of 4,690 stu-
dents for this year as against 5,944 of
the year previous it becomes evident
that what is perhaps Michigan's great-
est war sacrifice amounts to a loss of
Every school and college in the Uni-
versity except the Medical school has
felt the brunt of this loss. The Med-
ical school enrollment shows a gain
of 16, which is probably due to the
fact that drafted medical students
have been permitted to return to their
studies on the condition that they are
liable to immediate call.
The literary college suffered the
greatest loss in numbers. The Law
school, however, suffered the greatest
proportionate loss-over one-half the
enrollment amount of last year. The
loss is totally in men students-about
20 per cent-while the enrollment of
women is the same this year as for
1916 The new course in Army Stores
Methods has an enrollment of 350.
The following are the latest figures
for the years 1916 and 1917:
Literary college-1916, 3,106; 1917;
2,485; a loss of 621. Engineering col-
lege-1916, 1,472; 1917, 1,156; a loss
of 316. Medical school-1916, 321;
1917, 337; a gain of 16. Law school-
1916, 375; 1917, 177; a loss of 198.

GOODSELL AND FITZGERALD RE-
MOVED FROM GAME FOR.
WESTON NOT BADLY
HURT, BUT RETIRES
Wet Field Causes Many Fumbles For
Visitors Which Aid Wolverines
To One Score
Michigan, 14; University of D-
That's the score as it read at the
end of the hardest fought game seen
on Ferry field this season. The De-
troiters came to Ann Arbor yesterday
with a reputation and a 145-point vic-
tory against the University of Toledo
to their credit. But the Wolverine ag-
gregation took to the Duffytes like
fish to water.
It took the Yostmen all the first
quarter and a good part of the sec-
ond to get on to the Detroiters, but
when they got started they encoun-
tered no great difficulties.
Both teams had a slippery field to'
contend with and as a result fumblng
marred the game. Perhaps the fact
that the. Detroit eleven engaged in
this department a little too lavishly
accounts for their defeat.
Wolverines Win Toss
The Wolverines won the toss and
elected the east goal. Play started
when Culver kicked off. Edwards
brought the leather back 10 yards.
Michigan was penalized five yards on
the first down for off side. The De-
troiters succeeded in making first
down and then fumbled. Michigan re-
covered the ball on the 40-yard line.
The Wolverines could not gain and
were compelled to kick. Duffy's men
were penalized 15 yards for holding
and then kicked -back to the Wolver-
ines. Neither team did much damage
for the rest of the quarter.
The Detroiters successfully executed
a forward pass, Edwards to Allen,
which netted them 29 yards. Another
forward pass failed and the visitors
were compelled to punt. Michigan
tried a couple of long passes without
much success. On the first down the
Detroiters were held for no gain. The
next play was a forward pass which
Froemke intercepted. He was finally
stopped on the visitors' two-yard line.
On the first down Wieman lugged the
ball over for the first score of the
Yost Takes Squad Indoors
Between halves Coach Yost took
his squad into the clubhouse for the
first time this year. The reason for
this move is a matter for conjuncture.
Some say the coach wanted to use
strong language while others are of
the opinion that the cold wave was
responsible for this bit of strategy.
Voss kicked off to Weske, who car-
ried the ball back 20 yards. Several
tries for plunges through the De-
-troiters' line brought no results and
Wieian was forced to kick. Edwards
was downed in his tracks on the eight-
yard line. The Duffyites punted back
without any try at straight football.
On a trick forward pass which beat
Minnesota in 1903, the Wolverines
gained 25 yards. Another pass,
Froemke to Goetz, netted Michigan a
second touchdown. Wieman kicked
Detroit took a decided brace, and
started a march 50 yards down the
field. A fake play brought no results.
The ball was on the Detroiters' 27-
yard line. Allen dropped back and
dropped a perfect goal.
Weston Hurt .
The visitors went out for the Wol-
verines' blood when Lambert stepped
in and spoiled another forward pass
in the fourth session. Goodsell and
Fitzgerald were put off the field for
roughing it up. The Detroiters& be-
gan tearing up distance between them
and the goal posts. Weston was hurt,
and had to be carried off the field. A
few more plays brought the visitors
on Michigan's four-yard line. Michi-
gan held Detroit for downs, -missing.
six points by less than 'a yard. Cohn
went through center for five yards as
