Attorney General Makes Declaration
Giving Various Phases of
Gigantic Scheme
Washington Nov. 3.--Plans to vio-
late the election laws on a huge scale,
including the transportation of 60100
negroes into Indiana, Ohio, Illinois,.
and other middle western states, have
been uncovered by department of jus-
tice investigators, the attorney general
announced late today. Many of the
negroes have registered, intending to
vote despise tne fact that they have
been in the north only three months,
it was said.
Plans to register unnaturalized citi-
zens, "false registration by padding
lists with fictitious names, with the
intention of having other persons vot-
ing under these names, false counts
and returns by election boards, ficti-
tious persons who have failed to vote
and intimidation in various forms," are
cited by the department as being
among the schemes.
The intimidation largely has been
by employers who" threaten to close
factories and shops if opposition can-
didates are elected. In a city in Kan-
sas the department stated, evidence
already has been obtained that false
registration totals into the thousands.
The attorney general refused to name
the city.
Report Detroit Is Implicated.
Detroit, Nov. 3.-Important evidence
indicating colonization of negroes in
Detroit for'% Tuesday's election has
been unearthed, according to a state-
ment today from the office of District
Attorney Kinnane. The statement in-
timated this colonization had been dis-
covered in the second precinct of the
third ward and adjoining precincts.
Expect Special Grand Jury.
Chicago, Nov. 3.-Special grand
juries in Indiana, Illinois, and Ohio
will be called to investigate alleged
vote frauds and registration law vio-
lations soon after election day, Nov.
17, according to an announcement
made late today by Frank Dailey of
Indianapolis, special assistant district
attorney. Dailey had been in confer-
ence for several hours with District
Attorney Cline and other federal of-
Phoenix, Ariz., Proposes Constitution
Amendment Making Easy Divorce
Phoenix, Ariz., Nov. 3.-Phoenix may
become a second Reno, if a proposed
amendment to the city constitution is
adopted by the voters next Tuesday.
It provides a residence of six months,
but otherwise makes divorce "almost
as easy as having a tooth pulled, and
far less painful" as one politician put
it. The new law sanctions severance
of marital relations when either party
is insane, when either is addicted to
the use of drugs or is incompetent,

diseased, or cruel. Attorneys say the
provision will practically let down the
bars. An organized campaign is be-
ing waged by hotel men and others in
favor of the amendment.
A notary public will be at the
Farmers and Mechanics bank today to
swear out ballots for student voters
who are unable to go home to vote.
This will be done free of charge, but
no other form of document will be
This applies only to men students
who are at least 21 years of age and
residents of Michigan or of some state
that permits voting in this manner.
No Further Smallpox CVases Reporied
No further cases of smallpox have
been reported in Ypsilanti. The sup-
nosed epidemic is well under control.

Berlin Reports Russians Thrown Back
leven Times In Battle on
Eastern Front
Berlin, Nov. 3.-Germans lost ground
in the village of Sailly on the Somme
front yesterday, but repulsed hostile
attacks elsewhere in the western the-
ater of war. In the eastern theater of
war, Russians suffered especially
severe losses in seven futile attempts
to recapture the positions west of
Folv Krasnolosio on the left bank of
the Narycka.
Berlin, Nov. 3.-German sea forces
conducted a raid on trade routes be-
tween the Thames and Holland last
night, and brought into port two sus-
picious steamers. The German torpedo
boats were shelled by four British
cruises but were undamaged.
"On the night of Nov. 2, a small
German sea craft advanced from points
of support on the coast of Flanders,
on trade routs between the Thames,
and Holland," said the admiralty's
Talks at Opening Reception of Wo-
men's League in Sarah Cas-
well Angell Hall
An enthusiastic audience of 500 wo-
mnen listened to Registrar A. G. Hall's
remarks at the opening reception of1
the Women's league in Sarah Caswell
Angell hall Friday afternoon. The key-
note of Dr. Hall's message was found
in the words, "t is not what you get
out of the league, and the University,
but what you put into them, that
counts. It is the student body which
is the leavening of the world. Be
Michigan women."
He went on and gave a short his-
tory of the University. telling many in-
teresting stories of the past, and some
amusing tales of early student pranks.
In speaking of co-education le said,,
'The time is past when the success of
co-education is considered a debat-
able subject. However, never forget
that equality does not mean identity.-
Never forget to be true to your own
ideals of a noble, useful womanhood."f
Margaret Reynolds, 17, then spokeF
briefly on the purposes and aims of
the league. After this Mrs. G. A. Has-
treiter rendered two solos: "Revela-
ation," by Scott, and "Love Is the
Wind." by MacFaydenn
At the conclusion of the program,
irranged by Della Laubengayer, ice
cream was served in the parlors of the
gymnasium and the remainder of the
time was spent in dancing.,
Margaret Reynolds, '17, was assisted
! receiving by Anita Kelley, '17, Mrs.t
H. B. Hutchins, Miss Miriam Gerlach,
Mrs. A. C. Hall, Mrs. W. D. Henderson,
Mrs. R. W. Cowden, and Miss Helen
Ploughs Through 800 Pounds De-
livered From Deutschland
Washington, Nov. 3.-German Am-
bassador von Bernstorff spent most of
the day ploughing through 800 pounds
of embassy mail brought from Ger-
many on the merchantman submarine

Deutschland. Whether the Deutsch-
land is to carry United States mail on
her return trip has not yet been def-
initely decided, Ambassador Bernstorff
said today. The embassy staff was an-
swering important communications
contained in the six mail pouches. The
ship's first officer had a long talk with-
the ambassador.
Carn" za Denies Villa Has Taken City
New York, Nov. 3.-A message from
General Carranza denying that Vil-
listas have captured Parral was re-
ceived by Andrea Garcia, inspectorj
general of the Mexican consulates, this
afternoon. "Carranza troops are in
control of the city," the message said,
"and there is absolutely no truth in
the report of its capture?' Carranza'sa
message announced that constitutional
troops at Juarez will be paid 50 cents
a day in gold hereafter, in addition to
the paper money.

Board of Commerce Secretary to An-
nounce Condition Before Inter-
state Commission
Detroit, Nov. 3.-Detroit will be
without coal in 15 days, local dealers
predicted today, unless there is immed-
iate relief to the car shortage situa-
tion and the congestion in local rail-
road terminals. These facts were
brought out by Walter C. Cole, secre-
tary of the Detroit board of commerce,
who is in Louisville, Ky., to present
Detroit's case to the InterstateCor-
merce commission.
The board of commerce investiga-
tion revealed that there are 15,000 cars
loaded with food stuffs and raw mater-
ials for factories in the railroad yards,
here, while thousands of other cars
are on sidings outside the city, and
cannot be brought in because of the
Hundreds of Witnesses Seek McCord
Louisville, Ky., Nov. 3.-Hundreds of
witnesses flocked here today, anxious
to tell Interstate Commerce Commiss-
ioner McCord why they believe there is
a car shortage, and why fuel prices are
up. There are so many witnesses that
Commissioner McCord said he would
be unable to hear all, and asked writ-
ten testimony from the majority.
Vice-president Park, of the Illinois
Central railroad, was the first witness.
Park said the Illinois Central has only
17,000 coal cars on its line, although
it owns 24,000. He advocated placing
control of the administratioin of car
service with the Interstate Commerce
Rush to Buy Coal a Menace
Washington, Nov. 3.-Fears that the
private consumer is going to pay heav-
ily for coal this winter were expressed
today by government agents investigat-
ing the threatened coal famine. A
rush of wholesale buying by large in-
dustrial concerns in all sections in
fear of a shortage has injected an un-
expected menace into the situation.
Reports of this raid on the market
poured into the federal trade commiss-
io today from various sections of the
country, particularly industrial cent-
ers of the middle west. Prices in some
sections as a result are quoted at from
50 to 100 percent above normal.
Is Receiving Hearty Co-operation of
Both Ministers and Towns-
Go-to-Church-Sunday is receiving
wide attention from the campus and
the Ann Arbor community, both as a
move toward the encouragement of
student attendance at church and as
a means of adding the finishing touches
to the dry campaign in the state.
The movement is receiving the
hearty co-operation of the ministers
and townspeople because they see in
it an excellent opportunity to em-
phasize some of the issues in the dry
campaign. The Rev. N. C Fetter, dry
campaign manager of Washtenaw

county says, "We expect this Go-to-
Church-Sunday on the last Sunday be-
fore election to be the climax of the
campaign in Ann Arbor. The min-
isters of every church will explain the
issues and point out the duty of every
citizen to act right."
The sentiment of the campus is
fully expressed in the words Prof.
E. C. Goddard of the Law School, who
says, "I believe in Go-to-Church-Sun-
day and every other Sunday, for the
student as well as everybody else.
"Something like 60 per cent of the
students in the University come from
homes with church connections. Un-
fortunately at the formative period of
his life, the student often assumes
that he should take a vacation from
church during his college course. This
results in a one-sided, instead of a
fully rounded, development during
those years. I am glad to notice a
largely increased attendance in re-
cent years and hope the movement will
gather force and numbers."

Four cheers were chosen yesterday by the board of directors of the
athletic association to contest for the three prizes of $5.00, $3.00, and
$2.00 offered by F. J. Scully, '12.
These cheers are the work of Julius A. Negin, '19E, K. P. Jones,
'19, W. H. Sprague, grad., and L. 0. B. Lindstrom, '19E, respectively, and
were chosen from among over 300 cheers that were contributed during
the course of the contest.
The final awarding of the prizes has been deferred by the board of
directors until after the game with Washington today. All four cheers
will be tried out today during the game and their value gauged in ac-
cordance with the sentiment of the spectators, measured largely by their
enthusiasm in yelling them.

Printing and Engraving Work Award-
ed to Same Firms Employed
Last Year
Contracts for the engraving and
printing of the 1917 Michiganensian
were awarded by the board of control
of student publications at their regu-
lar meeting held Thursday afternoon.
The DuBois Press of Rochester, N. Y.,
will do the printing, and the engraving
will be done by the Jahn and Ollier
Engraving company, of Chicago.
These firms did this same work last
year and the results were so satis-
factory that there was no hesitation
in awarding them the contracts for
this year's book.
At the same meeting it was decided
to raise the ,price of the year book
from $2.50 to $3.00 because of the in-
creased size of the book as it is now
planned, and the extremely high price
of paper and printing materials. It is
estimated that the actual cost of pro-
ducing the book will be 50 per cent
greater than it was last year.
The Michiganensian of last year
ranked among the best college annuals
produced in the country and at the
same time was the only large college
annual to sell for $2.50. Other col-
leges and universities asked from $3.00
to $5.00 for their year books. - -
The subscription plan will be used
again this year. During the first week
in December everybody will have an
opportunity to subscribe by making a
deposit of 50 cents. Final payment
will be made in the spring when the
books are distributed.
The staff is already hard at work
on the material and it is their aim to
have the book out earlier than ever.
All seniors are urged to make arrange-
ments for their photographs as soon as
possible. In this way they will get
the benefit of better service from
Chosen to Lead Class After Tie Vote
of Last Week
Harry C. Daniels was elected presi-
dent of the senior law class at their
second election held yesterday after-
noon in the main corridor of the law
building. T. F. McDonald, '17L, his
only competitor, received 49 votes to
his 74.
This election was made necessary
by the tie vote for Donald Sarbaugh
and Ferris Fitch for the office at the
regular election last week.
A hygiene lecture for women of the
freshman class of the University will
be given at 5 o'clock next Tuesday
afternoon by Dr. Elsie Pratt, of the
University health service, in the west
amphitheater of the medical building.
All first year women are urged to be
present as this is the biggest lecture
to be given on this subject during the

General Plan of Meetings This Year
to Be Substantially the
Same as Last
Prof. Charles B. Vibbert will speak
to the freshmen on the qualifications
for eligibility in student activities, at
their first monthly class assembly, to
be held next Monday at 4 o'clock, in
the auditorium of the natural science
The general plan of assemblies for
the ensuing year has been mapped
out, and will be announced by the
freshmen advisors, Prof. Morris B.
Tilley, and Prof. Calvin Davis. The
organization of the assemblies will be
substantially the same as that of last
year, and with the co-operation of the
students, which accounted in great
measure for the success of the plan
adopted for the first time in last year's
freshman class, it is expected that it
will meet with success from the very
The large attendance of last season
was due in large degree to the hearty
co-operation of the class officers, and
to the efforts of upperclassmen and
leaders in the student council to con-
solidate the class and impress the fact
of unity upon them by having them
meet together, at stated times, to dis-
cuss class business, social affairs, and
to enable the students to secure many
practical advantages which they would
not otherwise receive in their college
courses. Efforts are made to secure
the best speakers upon student affairs,
and the meetings result not only in
encouraging class spirit, but also en-
able the first year students to receive
some idea of the things Michigan
stands for, and to nourish and foster
the ideals and traditions of the Uni-
There will be perhaps six or sev-
en assemblies held during the year,
and as they are of exceptional ad-
vantage and benefit to those who in-'
tend to make Michigan their alma mat-
er, all freshmen of loyality and good
class spirit are expected to attend.
Editors Work to Make This Issue
Good Example for Rest of
of Year
According to the present plans of
the editor, Professor Evans Holbrook,
the initial number'of the Michigan Law
Review will be ready for publication
the first of next week.
A great amount of work has been
put upon this number of the magazine
to set a high standard for the remaind-
er of the year. The following articles
will appear: "The Attaint," by John
M. Zane, '84, of the Chicago bar; "Dir-
ect Primary Legislation in Michigan,"
by Arthur C. Millspaugh, professor of
political science at Whitman College;
"The Federal Bill of Lading Act," by
H. S. Ross, of the Montreal bar, and
the usual comment on recent decisions,
by the board of editors and assistants.
Postpone Regular Alpha Nu Meeting
The regular meeting of Alpha Nu
Debating society was postponed last
night because of the Band Bounce.

Pantomime "Ain't It the Truth" Makes
Big Hit With Audience; Scene
Laid on Campus
Musical novelties, clever dialogues,
and sparkling sketches characterized
the band bounce held in Hill auditor-
ium last night. The features offered
by the band as well as the several
acts were received by the huge audi-
ence with marked enthusiasm. The
bounce assumed something of the na-
ture of a mass meeting during the
shifting of the scenes, as was shown
by the yells and cheers for the band.
and the team.
Perhaps the most applauded of the
features was the pantomime; "Ain't
It the Truth?" the scene of which was
laid along one -of the campus walks.
The indifference paid to various types
of University women and the great
difference shown to the "peach,"
brought forth roars of laughter from
the audience.
L. B. Emmerman, '18L, won favor
with his clever sitging and with his
tribute to Captain Maulbetsch, a
dramatic poem inspired by the Har-
vard game, which was given as an
James H. Stevens, '18E, displayed
professional talent by his performance
on the mandolin, while Orva Williams,
'19E, performed a laughable farce,
"The Innocent Drummer," taking all
the parts himself in a very creditable
Fred M. Adams, '17, demonstrated
the sinuous graces of an Oriental
charmer, supported by Allen, Brooks,
and Tappan, clever performers in
themselves. Arthur L. Murray, '19,
was forced to give three encores to
his song, "I want to Dance." Four
couples were pressed into service to
demonstrate by action what the words
were to convey.
Led by Helen Champion,"17, the 13
women who took part in the aesthetic
dance, "Algebraic Antics," exhibited a
singular grace of movement, while the
intricate figures of the "simultaneous
equation" were tripped without a flaw.
Applause unstinted was offered by the
audience to the charming dancers.
Members of the Washington team,
who arrived in Apn Arbor this morn-
ing, occupied the two front center
rows, their advent being loudly
cheered by those present.
The 50 members of the band ren-
dered seven numbers, all of which
were especially well received. Led by
Director Wilson, the aggregation
showed finish and style that did much
to instill "pep" and enthusiasm.
Over $400 was taken in at th door,
the purchasers of tickets awaiting
their turn in a long line in a drizzling
rain. Altogether, but few of the 5,500
seats were vacant when the band
struck into its program.
Much credit is due to the manage-
ment of the entrances and exits, and
to the shifting of the properties, al-
ways a difficult proposition in Hill.
auditorium, owing to the construction
of the stage. In general, the impres-
sion given by the first 1916 band

bounce is one of smoothness and ease,
none of the numbers offered lacking
in dash and go.
Canadian Club Plans Smoker at Unicn
At a recent meeting of the executive
board of the Canadian club it was de-
cided to hold a smoker at the Union
one week from this coming Thursday.
Short talks will be given by some of
the members, and smokes and cider
will be in abundance.
