hepublicans with putting syrup on the iughes sheet to attract vot-
ers.

French Declare They Have Captured
4I,06 Alone During Last
Four Months
Berlin, Nov. 7. -Heavy losses have
been sustained by French and British
troops in the past few days in their
powerful offensive. Australian troops
suffered especially on Sunday, as did
French attacking forces, which charg-
ed time after time across fields cover-
er with their owL dead.
"In the group of Crown Prince Rup-
precht", the official statement said,
"although the English visibly intended
to continue their heavy attack yester-
day, they only succeeded west of Court
L'Abbaye in leaving their trenches.
and were forced immediately to return.
The English losses of dead Nov. 5,
were especially heavy in the Austral-
ian divisions. The attacks were re-
sumed aghainst Les Bouets and Rain-
court towards night-fall. They were
all broken down in the face of our
heavy fire."
Paris, Nov. 7.-n the Sonime front
from July 1 to Nov. 1, the Franco-
British forces have captured 71,532
men, 1440 officers and 988 machine
guns in their great offensive. They
took also 178 field guns and 215 trench
mortars. Of the prisoners taken, the
French alone took 41,065 officers and
men. Cannonading continued on the
Somme front, and on the right bank
of the Meuse. Nancy has again been
bombarded by air squadrons.
Berlin, Nov. 7.-A small bridge-head
on the left bank of the Stockhod has
been stormed and taken, and a number
of prisoners captured by Prince Leo-
pold's armies. The Germans suffered
no' losses. The Balkan front showed
no change.
Berlin, Nov. 7.-The sinking of the
small British cruiser by a German sub-
marine off the Irish coast has increas-
ed that enemy's losses in battleships
and cruisers to 501,790 tons.
London, Nov. 7.-A further report
from the British submarine operating
off the Danish coast claims to have se-
cured hits on two German dread-
noughts of the Kaiser class. A report
from the Admiralty yesterday said a
submarine had hit a dreadnought with
a torpedo, but that the damage done
was not known.
Berlin, Nov. 7.-German artillery
has again been forced to shell Rhiems.
"Fire of French batteries standing
south of Rhiems having played on vil-
lages upon our front was answered by
us, and as a reprisal the town of
Rhiems was shelled," said the official
statement.
Bucharest, Nov. 7.-The Rounanian
armies on the Dobrudja front have ,ad-
vanced along the whole line.
Berlin, Nov. 7.-An ammunition de-
pot at Ceresy on the Somme has been
destroyed by German air squadrons.
COUNCIL AND LEAGUE COMBINE
Weekly Student Dances to Be Fostered
According to United Meeting
Weekly student dances will be fost-
ered by the combined council of the
student council and the judiciary coun-
cil of the Women's League, according
to the decision reached at the united
board meeting last evening.
Anita M. Kelley, '17, and Howard S.
Hatch, '18, were appointed to take
charge of the dances, which will be
held on Saturday evenings. The pro-
ceeds of the parties will be devoted
to charity work.
The council also amended the con-
ventional class constitution to provide

for the proper apportionment of ex-
penses among men and women of each
class. ,Under the new Tuling, classes
will pay for those things, such as
insignia, basketballs, and hockey sup-
plies, that benefit women, as they have
settled the accounts incurred by men

The women of Newberry Residence
held a straw vote yesterday in which
33 votes were cast for Wilson as
against 31 for Hughes. A box stood in
the reading room all day with the
legend, "Wilson or Hughes? Please
sign your name on your ballot." Con-
sidering the heat of political feeling in
the dormitory, this precaution against
ballot box stuffing may not have been
altogether unnecessary.
For the past two days Newberry has
been the scene of heated arguments
on both sides and every one who en-
tered the dormitory was compelle'd to
state her convictions and take sides.
HARDIKAR SPEAKS ON INDIA
Declares Hindus Originators of Science
of Eugenics
Dr. N. S. Hardikar spoke last even-
ing in University hall on "Education
in India." The purpose of the meet-
ing was to further the cause of educa-
tion in that country.
Dr. Hardikar told how the Hindu
system of medicine is the foundation
of alopathy, how the Sanscrit litera-
ture is full of reference to micro-or-
ganisms and how eugenics was first
practiced by the people of India. He
then showed how the ancient civiliza-
tion of the country fell into decay.
India now has a population of 350,
000,000 and only 196 colleges or in-
stitutions of higher learning. The
training in these is merely theoretical.
Cramming and memory work has be-
come the bane of the Indian Univer-
sity.
Out of every hundred men, only 11
can read and write and but one woman
of every 200 is able to read or write.
The Indian government spends a penny
and a fifth per head of population for
learning.
The American association for the
promotion of technical education in In-
dia has been formed and is gaining
strength throughout the universities of
this country.
STUDENTS AWAIT RETURNS
Crowd Gathers at Union to Get Results
of Election; Entertained by
Campus Musicians
Enthusiasm and "pep" reigned at
the Union last night while the presi-
dential election returns were coming
in over the special Western Union
wire. Cheers for Hughes and applause
for Wilson served to stir the savage
breasts of the excited onlookers until
far into the small hours of the morn-
ing. From the "action" which took
place throughout the evening, one
would be tempted to believe himself
at a freshman smoker rather than at
a dignified gathering receiving election
returns.
During the course of the night,
while waiting for returns, the crowd
was entertained by several of the lead-
ing campus musicians, among whom
were: Leonard o. Aldrich, '17E, H. L.
Davis, '17, Abraham Gornetzky, '17, C.
H. Cottington, '19, and Erdmann W.
King, '20. Other forms of entertain-
ment for the enthusiastic watchers
were lunches and soft drinks served
in the Union dining room.
COIN DATED 1787 BEARING
"FUGIO" FOUND AT HARVARD
Cambridge, Mass., Nov. 7.-A pair of
old coins and an old key were un-
earthed by some workmen digging in
the yard for the pnrpose of planting
trees. One coin is dated 1787 and

bears the legend "Fugio" and shows
the sun shining on a sun-dial. On the
reverse side is the inscription "United
States--we have one." It is one of
the earliest coins made under the
auspices of the United States.
The other coin, dated 1802, is of the
same material but is not of any spe-
cial value or is the key unusual in ap-
pearance.
Italian Club Organized at Harvard
An Italian club has been formed for
the benefit of all students interested
in either the Italian literature or
language at Harvard.7

Fritz Kreisler, the eminent Austrian
violinist, who will appear in Hill audi-
torium at 8 o'clock this evening, is
one of the few violinists who, under
any circumstances, can fill the largest
halls of London, Paris, Berlin, and
Vienna. In fact, his hold upon the mu-
sical public of this country as well as
of Europe is remarkable. He attracts
not merely the general public but the
connoisseur, for, while he has all the
brilliancy that the general public de-
mands. underlying his art is sincere
musicianship.
Since the resumption of his musical
career in 1899 he has continuously de-
veloped as an interpretative artist un-
til now, by uniting his dazzling techni-
que with higher musical qualities, he
takes, among the younger players of
today, quite the foremost place as an
interpreter of the great classical con-
certos. His style of playing cannot,
however, be described as academic. In-
stead it is full of animation and feel-
ing, above all intensely individual, his
readings and even his methods of
fingering being largely his own. His
programs are said to be more varied
than those of any modern violinist,
thanks to his own arrangements of
certain pieces, ancient and modern, for
violin solo.
Mr. Kreisler will present the follow-
ing program this evening:
Sonata in A major..........Haendel
(In two movements.)
Prelude and Allegro.........Pugnani
Concerto in E minor.....Mendelssohn
Allegro appassionato;
Andante; Allegro non troppo;
Allegro molto vivace.

Rondino (on a theme by Beethoven)
...........................K reisler

BELIEVE WOUNDED L W. W.'S
DROWNED AFTER GUN BATTLE
Everett, Wis., Nov. 7.-From four to
ten I. W. W. victims of the gun bat-
tle with armed guards at Everett Sun-
day were drowned in the bay here, and
their bodies not recovered, according
to belief of witnesses who testified be-
fore the coroner's jury here. Coroner
Maulsby was still dragging the water
near, the dock today. The list of known
victims is still seven dead and 50
wounded. Citizens of Everett will con-
fer tomorrow to take steps to settle
the shingle weavers' strike, which was
at the bottom of the trouble between
the I. W. W. and law officers.
CLOSE WATCh IN 3IDDLE WEST
FOR ANY FRAUDULENT VOTES
Indianapolis, Nov. 7.-The federal
government gave special attention to
voting in the middle west pivotal
states today to prevent fraud. Al-
though Frank C. Dailey, special as-
sistant United States attorney in
charge of this investigation, refused to
be interviewed, he admitted that he had
been busy all day in connection with
his investigations. Reports from
Cleveland and 'Detroit were that spe-
cial agents of the government were
watching the polls closely, in an at-
tempt to spot election fraud if any.

CAPTAIN OF LANAO SAYS BOAT
FLEW STARS AND
STRIPES
CASE MAY RESEMBLE OTHERS
IDestructiou of Ships by Germans Calls
Attention to W P. Frye -
Affair
London, Nov. 7.-There was only one
American aboard the steamer Lanao
which was sunk by a German under
sea boat, Oct. 28, it was learned to-
day. Captain Henry Mainland report-
ed this from Wales. He said his ship
was of Philippine registry, flying the
American ensign when she was held
up off the Portuguese coast, and scut-
tied with a bomb, after he crew had
been taken off. Mainland left no doubt
as to tpe nationality of his ship.
iteceive Further Conformation
Washington, Nov. 7.-Further con-
formation of the report that the Lanao
still retained her American identity
was received by the department this
afternoon in a dispacth from American
Consul Lathrop, at Cardiff, Wales, dat-
ed yesterday. It said:
"Philippine steamer Lanao, Manilla,
to :Havre, carrying rice, stopped 30
miles off Cape Vincent, Portugal, by a
German submarine, Oct. 28. Lanao de-
stroyed by bombing after crew remov-
ed to submarine. Submarine claimed
the cargo was contraband and was
compelled to sink the vessel. ,Crew
transferred one-half hour later to Nor-'
wegian steamer Tromp and landed at
Cardiff. No injuries, no casualties.
The Lanao was unarmed and flying
American flag."
State Department Cables London
Wa shington, Nov. 7.-The state de-
partment this afternoon cabled Con-
sul General Skinner at London to for-
ward all details obtainable on the sink-
ing of the steamer Lanao, and to in-
struct the consular agents nearest to
Barry, Wales, to get all possible in-
f'ormation from the crew reported
landed there. In a cable to the de-
partment today, Consul Skinner re-
ported the sinking of the ship, but
failed to mention whether she sailed
under the American flag or whether
there were any Americans aboard.
The case, it was agreed, may prove
to be similar to that of the Amercan
grain schooner William P. Frye, earlier
in the war, if further evidence like to-
day's supports the original report that
the vessel was of American registry.
In her last note on the Frye, the Ger-
man government said it had instructed
naval commanders not to sink Amer-
ican vessels, unless carrying abso-
lute contraband. The Frye carried
only conditional contraband.
Germany and the United States fin-
ally agreed to arbitate the interpreta-
tion of the Prussian-American treaties
of 1799 and 1828, under which Ger-
many claimed the right to sink Amer-
ican vessels carrying contraband.
