"Hurray for Wilson, he's a darn fine
man," "Yea Hughes, fight 'em, fight
'em, fight 'em."
These crys will resound through the
Union hall tonight as the presidential
election returns come in over a special
Western Union wire. Since reports
from all parts of the country indicate
that the race will be a hot one, it is
more than likely that the Union will
be crowded to the doors. Preparations
to this end have been made.

4 o'clock, when the last report will
come in, the crowd will be entertained
with music and funny skits by cam-

Berlin, Nov. 6.-What Polish leaders
believe to be the most important fac-
tors to be considered in re-establish-
ment of a Polish nation were outlined
in a statement made by the leader of
the Polish delegation which called on
the German chancellor and Austro-
Hungarian Foreign Minister Baron
Burian. The statement carried in re-
ports from Vienna follows:
"During war time it is impossible
to select authoritative reports of the
Polish nation. Meanwhile we consider
it our right to give expression in the
name of the Polish nation to its un-
mistakeable aspiration to a re-estab-
lishment of a permanent Polish state.
The establishment must be accom-
panied by guaranteeing equal rights to
all citizens. We realize it is now im-
possible to relineate the frontiers,
which can only be decided in accord-
ance with the interests of the central
powers, and the conditi ns under
which the war is brou o a con-
These Decrees Necessary.
The delegation announced it believes
the following decrees necessary:
Establishment of a regent with full
power of government in the Polish
state; abolition of lines of demarca-
tion between the sectional Poland oc-
cupied by the German forces and that
occupied by Austrians; establishment
of a provisional council composed
solely of native elements charged with
drawing up a constitution; organiza-
tion of an administrative government,
and establishment of a military depart-
ment for organization of a Polish
U. S. Cannot Recognize Poland.'
Washington, Nov. 6,-The United
States canmot recognize Poland as an
independent power before the con-
clusion of peace. Regardless of the
reported action of the central powers
in proclaiming Poland an independent
kingdom, her status from the stand-
point of the United States is still "cap-
tured territory," and her future posi-
tion must be settled by the peace ne-
Galicia to Be Autonomous.
Berlin, Nov. 6.-An autonomous gov-
ernment will be granted Galicia by

1916-17 ENROLLMENT SHOWS
AN INCREASE OF 290 PUPILS
Registrar A. G. Hall Predicts Final
Total of 7,500 Students
by Next May
The enrollment of the University, up
to and including Nov. 1, is 7,271 stu-
dents, according to figures given out
by Registrar Arthur G. Hall yesterday.
This number is distributed as fol-
lows: College of Literature, Science,
and the Arts, 3,115; College of En-
gineering and Architecture, 1,467;
Medical School, 319; Law School, 377;
College of Pharmacy, 108; Home-
opathic Medical School, 55; Dental
School, 348; Graduate School, 286;
summer session (estimated), 995; Sat-
urday classes in Detroit and other
cities (estimated), 300.
These figures show an increase of
290 over last year's enrollment at this
time. Estimating on the percentage of
increase of enrollment during the last
school year, Registrar Hall says that
more than 7,500 students will be mem-
bers of the University next May, when
the final figures will be computed. The
above figures do not include double
registration in the case of combined
courses, which would raise the total
Profs. Reeves, Scott, and Hobbs Give
Interviews to Daily on
Hughes and Wilson
"I consider the presidential election
which takes place today, as being one
of the most important in the history of
the country. A selection by the peo-
ple of either of the candidates will
mean a definite acceptance or rejection
for their solutions to problems which
are of paramount importance. The
future conduct of the United States
with regard to its relations with war-
ring nations, the handling of the Mexi-
can situation, the adoption of a pro-
tective tariff, woman suffrage, com-
merce and labor, and in the matter of
full preparedness, will all be decided
in the choice of president. No matter
who is elected, it is certain that the
future history of the country will be
The foregoingestatement coming
from Prof. J. S. Reeves, of the political
science department, may be said to
voice the general opinion with respect
o the presidential election which takes
place today. A number of members of
the faculty were solicited for opinions
concerning the issues in question, and
while few would go into details, all
were of the opinion that the country
was facing a serious crisis, and much
depended upon the ultimate choice of
the voters at the polls today.
Prof. W. H. Hobbs for Hughes.
This was put forth rather strongly
in a statement made by Prof. W. H.
Hobbs of the geology department, who
"The people do not realize that
President Wilson is, and has always
been a bitter foe to preparedness. His
election will mean little or no change
in his cabinet, and Daniels and Baker
at the head of the navy and army, sup-
porting the president in his pacifist
doctrines would prove themselves most
inconpetent in the event of war.
"The slogan, 'He kept up out of war,'
contains a fallacy. He could scarcely
have gotten into war. The real danger
is yet to come at the close of hostilities
in Europe. A firm hand at the helm
of state will be necessary, and Hughes
has proved that he possesses the at-
tributes of firmness and decision. Wil-
son is an undoubted opportunist. His
vacillating policy tn regard to the
Mexican situation, and his complete
surrender under a threat in the case
of the Adamson bill should cause the
voter to debate seriously before cast-
ing a vote for his re-election."
Prof. J. F. Scott Praises Wilson.
On the other side of the question,
Prof. J. F. Scott of the history de-
partment, said in an interview with a
"The policies of President Wilson
have clearly shown his far-sighted-
ness and restraint. The stand he has
taken concerning present-day issues
shows that he thinks not only of to-
day, but of the future as well. The
Mexican situation has been dealt with
as part of a greater policy which is to
aid in cementing our relations with
South America. The Mexicans have
confidence in the president and hope
for his re-election.."
FORM TWO NAVAL DIVISIONS
K. W. Heinrich, '17E, Receives Order
From Navy Department
K. Warren Heinrich, '17E, last night
received letters from Washington stat-
ing that by order of the navy depart-
ment of the United States, two divis-
ions of the naval militia of the United
States navy will be formed here at
the University immediately. By order
of the governor, these divisions will
be assigned to the first battalion of
Heinrich left last night for Wash-
ington where he will confer with Com-
mandant J. F. Lewis of the Michigan
naval battalion as to the particulars
of the organization. He will bring
back final and complete plans and the
responsibility for their execution will
be in his hands.
Dr. Angel's Yard Is Scene of Fire

LIT ASSEMBLY SUCCESS
Prof. Vibbert Talks to Freshmen
"Eligibility with Regard to
With a crowd that completely filled
the auditorium of the natural science
building, the first monthly fresh lit as-
sembly of the year 'was held yesterday
Prof. Morris Tilley and Prof. C. O.
Davis, freshman advisors, were the
first speakers. They urged the fresh-
men to consult with them freely on
all scholastic matters in regard to
which they might be in doubt.
Professor C. B. Vibbert, the principal
speaker of the afternoon, next talked
on "Eligibility with Regard to Student
Activities." Professor Vibbert stated
that many freshmen come to the Uni-
versity with the idea that they may
enter any student activity they desire,
and when they try to do so they are
disappointed. He outlined clearly the
eligibility rules for taking part in any
campus activity and stated plainly
that freshmen are allowed to take part
in only freshman affairs.
Following the talks, a short busi-
Dess meeting of the freshman class was
held over which R. C. Stewart, fresh
lit president, presided. The class
adopted a constitution and the presi-
dent announced that committees will
be appointed in the near future. The
business meeting was followed by an
informal gathering of the class, in or-
der that the members might become
better acquainted with each other.
Dr. J. F. Scott, of the history de-
partment, who is in charge of the
fresh lit assemblies this year, pre-
sided over the assembly.

Nothing now remains of all the
tremendous forces of election time
but the voting of the citizens, and
the announeement of the count.
Campaigning is over, and the

sort. This sentiment is reflected
in the camps of both Republicans
The middle west, it is believed,
will prove the deciding factor in
the election of the chief executive,
and those who watch returns to-
day will have particular interest
in these results. Locally, state
prohibition is awakening the most
wide spread attention, according
to reports from all parts of the-
state. The gubernatorial position
will also be settled.

lot this morning at Princeton.

date, voiced his final appeal yes-

that while the Socialist party

Hughes to Carry Michigani
Detroit, Nov. 6.-Hughes will carry"
Michigan by 100,000 plurality, accord-
ing to a just-before-the-battle state-
ment issued by Republican State
Chairman Mangum this afternoon.
Mangum also predicted election of all
13 Republican congressional nominees
and of the entire state ticket as well
as re-election of United States Sen-
Democratic headquarters refused to
consider defeat in Michigan for Presi-
dent Wilson. A statement from Demo-
cratic Chairman Stevenson declared
the president would carry the state,
but he refused to estimate the prob-
able plurality. Stevenson declared
five Democratic congressmen would
also be elected. Odds of 2 to 1 were
offered in Detroit this afternoon that
prohibition would carry.
Wilson Spends Quiet Day.
Asbury Park, N. J., Nov. 6.-Presi-
dent Wilson played golf this morning,
being accompanied by Mrs. Wilson. He
saw a few callers in the afternoon,
among them being Ignace Jan Pader-'
ewski, the pianist, who wished to have
an appeal for Polish relief embodied
in the Thanksgiving proclamation. The
president was in fine spirits.
Those to whom he talked expressed
the opinion that the fight was won.
Many congratulations on "assured re-
election" reached him from all parts
of the country. Tomorrow morning a
motor trip to Princeton where he will
cast his ballot as planned. In the
evening he will get returns from the

completed there is litle doubt that the
