London, Oct. 30.-Berlin and Brand-
enburger troops, famed for. their fight-
ing at Verdun, launched one of the
most violent counter attacks of the
whole battle against the line south of
the Somme last night. The French war
offte admitted this afternoon that the
Germans penetratcd La Maisonette
farm west of Peronne, but claimed the
repulse of other heavy attacks.
The German war office reported the
capture of La Maisonette and all the
French positions extending from the
farm to Bianches together with 412
prisoners. British gains in the fight-
ing north of the, river were admitted
Along the Transylvania frontier the
Austo-Germans and Romanians are en-
gaged in a series of battles. The Ger-
man war office announced the capture3
of several heights southeast of the
famous Red Tower Pass but conceded
a Roumanian victory southwest of;
Svurduk pass. Unofficial reports
from Petrograd declared that Falken-
hayn's forces had been pushed back
three miles by the Roumanians northt
of Kimpulung. In Dobrudja a fresh1
battle is believed imminent. The Ber-
lin official statement .declares that
Mackensen's pursuing detachments1
are now in touch with the retreating j

Cedar Rapids, Neb., Oct. 30.-"Why
should I discuss what is purely a
cabinet question? Why should Bre.k-
enridge? It is a matter for the pral-
dent. If he has any reply to make
he is perfectly able to make it." This
was William Jennings Bryan's reply
when asked today regarding the Lodge
charge, that the president appended a
very tame postscript to the "strict ac-
countability" note to Germany in the
Ashbury Park, N. I., Oct. 30-Ae.
companied by his full staff in brilliant
oriental uniforms, Viscount Sato, the
new Japanese ambassador to the
United States, today presented his
credentials to President Wilson with
formal greetings, and expressions of
hopes for a continuance of the friendly
relations existing between the two
Melbourne, Oct, 30.-With the tes
of Australian soldiers abroad un-
counted, returns from Saturday's ref-
erendum, otherwise complete, showed'
the defeat of the conscription measure
by a majority of 86,000. While the
soldiers' vote is expeoted to be over-'
whelmingly in favor of conscription, it1
is not believed it will offset this, ma-
jority. The "ayes" numbered 851,000
and those opposed 937,000.-
Eight Features Planned for Frio
Night's Band Entertain.
WOMEN TO APPEAB IN CA
Sallies of wit, tuneful melod1
fantastic posing by aesthetic dance
and the production of a mirth-provc
ing pantomime were some of t
salient features of the first Band Bo(
rehearsals which took place in Sar
Caswell Angell hall last night.
Berlin, Oct. 30.-The death of Cap-
tain Boelcke, Germany's greatest air
hero, was confirmed by the semi-of-
ficial news agency today. During an
engagement Saturday, Boelcke col-
lided with another aeroplane and died
as he landed behind the German-lines.
The day before he had landed his
fortieth enemy plane.
Among the eight features promised
by Manager Walter R. Atlas, '18, for
next Friday's entertainment, are sev-
eral musical acts said to be of excep-
tional merit. J. H. Stevens, '18E, and
his mandolin will hold the stage for
one number, J. L. Lundberg, '18D, and
C. A. Rebentisch, '16D, both members
f the band, will figure prominently
with their cornets. Arthur L. Murray,
School of Music, is on the program for
several rollicking melodies, and L. A.
Emmerman, '18L, "Michigan's Al Jl-
sen," late leading man of the Sock and
Buskin club of Western Reserve Uni-
versity, will follow suit. -
A dancing act with a cast of 13
women, headed by Helen L. Champion,
'17, was unable to conduct its rehearsal
but it is said that the feature will be
in the nature of a surprise in the way
of classical terpsichorean portrayal.
All will be in readiness, however, for
the first dress rehearsal which is
called for' Wednesday evening.
Members of the committee for dis-
posing of the tickets have been actively
engaged. Chairman H. C. Garrison,

here last August, pleaded guilty to
robbery while armed, when arraigned
before Police Justice Stein. He was

During Past Two
News has just been received by the
.Vniversity Oratorical association that
Richard Le Gallienne, the distingu-
ished English poet, will be in Ann Ar-
bor to lecture on Thursday, Nov. 2,
of this week. Mr. Le Gallienne is
now quite as much favored in this
country p.s in England. He is to all
intents and purposes an American au,_
thor. For the greater part of the year
he makes his home in New York. His
three latest books have been brought
out by New York publishers-Putnams
and the Harpers.
Mr. Le Gallienne was born Jan. 30,
1866. He started life in a business
office in Liverpool, but abandoned this
to turn author. After quitting his
ledgers, he went up to London where
for some months he acted as secre-
tary to Wilson Barrett, famous Eng-
lish actor. This prepared the. way for
his genuine literary de ,Awith the
"Book Bills of Narcissus; r4h in the
estimation of many criticy remains one
of his most. charming works. The
book at once established Le Gallienne's
reputation, which was presently con-
firmed by his "George Meredith," a
just and subtle appreciation. The
range and quality of his general critic-
ism are well represenited by "Retro-
spective Reviews" (2 vols., 1896).
As a poet. Mr. Le Gallienne is now
recognized as one. of the captains of
song. He is perhaps best known asi
a lyric poet, whose place was' fixedv
many years ago. His strong yet deli-t
cate art entitles him' beyond a doubtd
to the rank of the greatest livingA
lyrist. This is. easily apparent to
those who have read his latest volume,«
"The Lonely Dancer." Here one finds
fragrance and color, charm and mel-a
ody, performing the mystery of songa
on every page.
Mr. Le Gaienne is the author of t
more than 30 books of verse and prose,Y
nearly all of which have received highp
praise from\Phe critics, the public andn
his fellow-poets. He counts nearly alln
the writer, of Europe and Americans
as friends and admirers. He was a b
close friend of Swinburne, Georger
Meredith, Ibsen (whom he often vis-
ited), and other famous writers. S
Washington, D. C., Oct. 30.--The
Donaldson liner, Marina, flying the
British flag, was sent to the bottom
without warning by shell fire from a
German submarine Saturday after-
noon, about 100 miles west of Cape
Clear, according to reports from.-
American Consul Frost, at Queens-
There were two Americans and five
Fillipinos in the crew of 104. Of this
number, 34 have been landed at Brook-
haven, while life boats numbers one
and three are missing.
While attempting escape from a sub-
marine, the Furness freighter, Rowan
More, sailing from Baltimore to Liver-
pool, was attacked and sunk. The
ship, according to a report from Con-
sul Frost, attempted to run away for
50 minutes. Her steering gear was
shot away, and the master brought
the vessel to a stop, signaling that he
was abandoning her. The submarine
continued shelling, and shelled the life
boats after they had cleared. There
were, however, no casualties.
Reports of the destruction of four
other ships have reached London in
the past 24 hours. They were the
Danish steamer Sif, the Russian three-
master Ingersoll, the Norwegian bark
Regina, and the Greek steamer An-
gheliki. The Marina was a steel screw
steamer of 5,204 tons.
"LIE" AT SENTOR LOOS
light gray suit was badly wrinkled as
a result of two nights in the police
cell block, and of the long railway
journey from Dallas,tTexas, where he
was captured more than a week ago.
Walton was returned to police head-
quarters immediately after his arraign-
ment. He and his bride of seven
months are penniless. The girl slept
at the women's detention home last
night, because she had no place to go.
Henry Ford visited Walton at his
cell today, but he did not make his
identity known to the prisoner. Later
Walton was questioned about the in-
"Was that Henry Ford?" he asked
in surprise. "Yes, he was in here. He
looked me over, shook his head, and
said, 'Uh, huh, you'll know better the
next time.' I guess he's a pretty food
fellow at that."
Ford told reporters he did not care
to discuss the purpose of his visit to,
the bandit's cell.
HUNDREDS SEE VISION OF NEW
UNION AS BIG TRACTOR DIGS'
By Perry Arnold
(United Press Staff Correspondent)
East Liverpool, Ohio, Oct. 30.-Ten'
thousand assembled in the open air
to hear nominee Hughes vigorously de-
clared that "the American work-
ing man is not to be deluded by the
suggestion that we now have a satis-
factory prosperity." He -quoted Ed-
ward M. Hurley, chairman of the fed-
eral trade commission to back his pre-
diction that America must redouble
her efforts if she is successfully to
compete with Europe after the war. It
was direct answer to President Wil-
son's Cincinnati speech.
"The present campaign is an import-
ant one" Hughes asserted, "because
it involves the future of American
labor. It was only 20 months ago
when, we had hundreds of thousands
of unemployed workmen throughout

Mr. Breckinridge's telegram is from
San Mateo, Cal., and is as follows:
"Any one who quoted me to Senator
Lodge as represented in your telegram
as quoted is a scoundrel. No member
of President Wilson's cabinet ever

malice that would seek for partisan ad-
antage to emasculate the potency of
one's government in a vital interna-
ional affair by the mongering of back
