In one of the these experiments a

Prof. Jacob E. Reighard, a member
f the zoology department of the Uni-
ersity and retiring president of the
ociety, delivered the feature address
f the convention. Professor Reig-
ard's fish researches have been
rorld-wide and he is declared by ex-
erts to be one of the best advised
aen in the world on the finny tribe.
"I have been often asked whether
shes can smell, taste, hear, or dis-
inguish colors, and whether they
earn to keep out of nets, or to avoid
he hook," said Professor Reighard.
What workers in science have learned
bout these matters has been pub-
ished in many languages in various
echnical journals and books. It has
eemed to me, therefore, worth while,
a view of the widespread interest,
o bring together what is known in
.on-technical form, and let it be
rinted, so that all may have access
D it.
"Regarding the sense of learning in
ish, there are many kinds of fish,
aore than 12,000 in North America
lone. They differ much in the struc-
ure of their sense organs and prob-
bly much in capacity to use them and
o learn. Very few kinds have been
nvestigated by scientific men. When,
hen, I say that fish do this or that it
.hould be remembered that the state-
nent is usually based on studies of
ine or two kinds only. That other
binds have the same capacity as those
nvestigated is an asumption more orl
ess warranted."
Referring to the sense of smell,.
Professor Reighard said that when
ish detected odors they swam rest-
essly about until they detected the
source. To have the most effective
bait, he said, fishermen should use

insistent, she asks him if he would be

It matters little what I say, or if my

Editor, The Michigan Daily:
May I be permitted to discuss the
Michigan "yell" situation in brief and
possibly suggest something? In the
half year I have spent at Michigan I
have been struck by the seeming short-
age of good, spirit-rousing yells, yells
that can come spontaneously as the ex-
pression of an emotion or sentiment,
yells that the situation at hand calls
for, particularly on the football field.
Michigan has two good yells, the "U.
of M." and the "Locomotive", but they
call for an effort, for persistent lead-
ership in execution. While strong and
hearty and spirited, still they are no
more formal and have no special mean-
ing. They can be used at any time
and are no more appropriate at one
occasion than at another occasion or
under another situation.
The particular yell I have in mind
is one I heard in the west. It is
started by the rooters on one side of
the field who yell in unison, "Say!"
and the opposite bleachers answer.
"What?" Back and forth across the
field it goes, "That's What!", "What's
what?", "That's what we all say!"
Then, "What do we all say?" and all
together they yell, "Beat Syracuse!
Beat Syracuse! Beat Syracuse! Beat
Syracuse! Michigan!"
That yell can be given with greater
effect and more noise than twice the

Inmperial Headquarters, Russian
Army, Oct. 8.-(By mail.)-From this
place every day about half past 12
o'clock, over special wires, flash the
orders of the emperor and his Chief of
Staff Alexieff to the generals command-
ing the 700 miles of front.
If you have eyes that can see through
house tops and brick walls, you will
see scores cK uniformed officers poring
over maps and plans; aides hurrying
from one department to another; ord-
erlies standing at ramrod attention
back of busy generals; a crown prince
learning how to govern; a czar con-
ferring with his staff. You will see all
these important acts which send a half
million men to the attack, to the forc-
ing of a stream, to the taking of an
enemy redoubt. The clash of cavalry,
the thunder of big guns, the offensives
against Lemberg and Kovel and all the
other places-all are controlled from
here. '
Yet, if you have the eyes of ordinary
mortals, you see none of this and
grand general headquarters, or the
stavka, as the Russians call it, is the
deadest, dullst place in all Russia.
Unless you have plenty of work to
keep you occupied, this is no place
for you. This is no health resort, no
place for tired business men, no

I it and if you have none you are in for
a rotten time.
Ordinarily about 20,000 people live
here. 'Now, with the military, the pop-

bread, but non -alchole, one almost
gets run over by a little car. In it are
Russian officers.
Lunch at the oficers' mess is the real
break in the day here. Only it does

ulation is about double this. Still, that. At 1.30 o'clock sharp he enters

the narrow, roughly cobbled streets
are seldom crowded because most of
the 40,000 people are busy inside. In
the dingy shop windows one sees Am-
erican tooth washes, American sewine
machines, American typewriters, Am-
erican bicycles and advertisements
for American harvesting machines.
A long, one story house of hewn logs,
unpainted and weathered to a somber
gray, back a little way from the main
street, is by tradition the scene of a
meeting between Katherine the Great,
of Russia, and Emperor Frederick, of
Prussia, in 1726. Now it is divided
into two parts and a family lives in
A red brick "opera house" in the
middle of the town, the house of the
local governor wherein ('zar Nicholas,
II, now finds quarters with his 12 year
old heir, Alexis Nikolaieviche; a rath-
er handsome Catholic church, several
equally handsome Greek Orthodox
churches; the street market; the view
from the terrace back of the emperor's
quarters, make up the principle sights
of the place.
A long, very narrow street be-
tween two rows of whitewashed stone
buildings, whose roofs are almost low
enough to be touched by the extended
hand, looks inviting. Here are strange
shops kept by very hairy men. Their
wares are principally articles for the
peasant-charcoal stoves, ropes, coarseI
cotton goods, shovels, hoes, fur and
near-fur caps, heavy boots and the
like. As one looks with interest into
a barlike place where "kvass," a Russ-!
ian drink made from fermented black

on the run, passes rapidly down a lane
of officers standing at salute, seats
himself at his table and the waiters be-
gin to serve. In 35 minutes he rushes
out again. le wastes not a minute.
Still one has time to take a look
around, chewin as he looks. Down
the hall a way is Captain McCall, the
British attache, the dapperest one of
all. There is the French lieutenant,
wearing a black monocle, and a
French captain who has been twice
wounded, according to insignia worn
on his sleeve. Then there are the
Belgian attaches, anh the Italian. the
Serbian, Japanese and Portugese. They
are all very swell in their various
uniforms and for a few minutes one
ets the feeling that heis; really at

that there is a mighty European coal-
Suddenly an orderly hands you your
cap and cane and you find yourself

restful to do and suddenly, as you pass
a "kiosk," you spy among an array of
newspapers and periodicals printed in
Russian, a paper-bound volume, with
the title in English upon it. "The Ad-
ventures of Sherlock Holmes." It was
a heresy, but Sherlock entertained till
dinner time. After that came a visit to
one of the jammed movie theaters and

Alumnus Sends The Daily Poem
to Fit Ann Arbor 's Situation
"Literary Digest" Responsible for Choice Verses Received from John D.
Hibbard, '86, After Prohibition Vote of Campus
Reaches Him

Crowd Perfection

The following bit of verse, clipped from the Literary Digest, was en-
closed in a letter addressed to The Daily by John D. Hibbard, '86, of Chi-
cago.- The letter was to the effect that the result of the straw vote had
reached the ears of the Chicago alumni, who asked that the sentiment con-
tained in the poem be applied to local-conditions.
In the Matter of the Enactment of Certain Laws in the "Old Dominion"
and Elsewhere.
Lay the jest about the julep in the camphor balls at last,
For the miracle has happened, and the olden days are past!
That which made Milwaukee famous does not foam in Tennessee,
And the lid in old Missouri is as tight-locked as can be;
And the comic paper colonel and his cronies well may sigh,
For the mint is waving gaily, and the south is going dry!
By the still-side on the hillside in Kentucky all is still,
And the only damp refreshment must be dipt up from the rill.
Nawth Ca'lina's stately ruler gives his soda glass a shove,
And discusses local option with the So'th Ca'lina guv,
It is useless at the fountain to be winkful of the eye,
For the cocktail glass is dusty, and the south is going dry!

It is "water, water everywhere, and not a dropto drink!"
We no longer hear the music of the mellow crystal clink;
When the colonel, and the major, and the gen'ral, and the jedge
Meet to have a little nip, to give their appetities an edge;
For the eggnog now is nogless, and the rye has gone awry,
And the punch bowl holds carnations, for the south is going

crowd could produce with the locomo-
tive and, besides, it is a football yell.
I am not advocating this yell be-
cause it is new. It is not new: For
days and weeks before the annual
game between Iowa University and
Iowa State College, neither of them
by any means prep schools, the camp-
us and buildings resound with the yell
shouted from one group to another at
any time of day or night. It is a good
yell and it needs no >interpretation.
Another yell of a different charact-
er but no less effective (I thought it
>startlingly wierd when I first heard
it) is to slowly chant the letters
M-I-C-H-I-G-A-N, dropping an octave
or less on the "N." This gives the
impression of a mighty wind in the
forest and suggests an irrestible force
in a mighty effort. It would be ap-
propriate when the team was hard
These suggestions and yells are sub-
mitted for the consideration of the
yell leaders in particular and the
Michigan rooters in general.

All the nightcaps now have tassels, and are worn upon the head!
Not the nightcaps that were taken when nobody went to bed;
And the breeze above the blue grass is as solemn as is death,
For it bears no pungent clove tang on its odorific breath;
And each man can walk the chalk line when the stars are in the sky,
For the, fizz glass now is fizzless an I the south is going dry!
Lay the jest about the julep 'neath the chestnut tree at last,
For there's but one kind of moonshine, and the older days are past,
The water wagon rumbles through the southland on its trip,
And it helps no one to drop off to pick up the driver's whip;
For the mint beds now are pastures, and the corkscrew hangeth high;
All is still along the still-side, and the south is going dry!
