Troops Now Two Miles West
Cernaveda Fighting for
Famous Crossing

Meet the Team at the Station
The team returns to Ann Arbor at 8:30 o'clock Sunday morning.
The student council has made preparations for a reception. It urges
that all students of the University be present to accord the returning
warriors a welcome equal to the send-off.
Michigan's team this year has shown a fighting, tearing come-
back spirit that 'knows no defeat and it deserves every encourage-
ment that the student body can give it. The men face Cornell to-
day, prepared to give every ounce that's in them for Michigan, and
when they return, whether in victory or defeat, every Michigan man
and woman that can should be there to show his appreciation of their


Big Red Rooters Asking 2-1 Odds as
Result of Wolverine
Geneva, N. Y., Nov. 10.-Michigan's
Varsity camp is tonight confident of
,ictory in the big intersectional clash
which takes place at Ithaca tomorrow.
The team is tonight thoroughly im-
bued with a spirit of vengeance for
last year's drubbing which Captain
Barrett's men fastened upon the Wol-
verines at Ann Arbor.
The send-off at Ann Arbor has put
new fighting spirit into the men and
they are out to vindicate the confidence
and gust reposed in them by the
Michigan rooters. What Captain Maul-
betsch said just before the train pulled
out for Geneva, anent returning with
the bacon, is certainly indorsed by the
whole team.
Zeiger will start the game at the
pilot position this afternon. This was
stated definitely tonight. Whether he
will share the responsibility of run-
ning the team with Sparks is not
known, but it is very probable that
Yost will allow Zeiger to play the
entire game, reserving Sparks for the
Pennsylvania game a week from to-
The practice held today at Geneva
found the men in good condition and
smoothing out formations. Some of
the confidence of the team is reflected
by the coaches, who are exceedingly
hopeful of a Michigan victory. Back-
field Coach Douglass expressed him-
self as believing that the recent shifts
made in the Cornell lineup are indi-
cations of weakness, and he thinks that
Michigan will find that weakness out
and force' an opening through which
the game can be sewed up.
Captain Maulbetsch is expected to
repeat his performances of the Michi-
gan-Harvard game of two years ago.
It will be remembered how he carried
the ball for more yards than the whole
Crimson team could gain during the
entire game. If the Michigan leader
lives up to the reputation established
in that battle, the outcome of this aft-
ernoon's fray may almost be regarded
as a foregone conclusion for the Maize
and Blue warriors.
The weather is threatening tonight
and rain seems to be promised tomor-
row. In case the elements are un-
favorable the Michigan offense may

T. A. Lowrie Presides at Banquet
Presbyterian Church; Mayor
Wurster Talks


Prohibition workers of Washtenaw
county met last night in the banquet
room of the Presbyterian church to
celebrate their complete victory in the
liquor fight in Michigan. Three hun-
dred people were present.
The meeting was presided over by
T. A. Lowrie, who called on the vari-
ous township committeemen for a re-
port of their respective townships. In
almost every case reports were given
of large majorities to the dry inter-
The exact circumstances in Detroit
were presented by Mr. Simpson of that
city. He told of the victory that the
dry leaders gained in all parts of the
state. According to Mr. Simpson, the
newspapers played a very important
part in the campaign. The Detroit pa-
pers not only aided by publishing edi-
orials, but also contributed financially,
allowing the prohibitionists $100,000 of
free advertisement.
Mayor Wurster of Ann Arbor in a
congratulating talk directed toward
the temperance workers dwelt on the
fact that now the saloon is dispensed1
with, some sort of entertainment must
be provided for the people who would
be after April 1, 1918, driven from the
saloons where they have been accus-
tomed to spend their time.1
Mr. Hatch, the editor of a Ypsilanti
paper congratulated the dry advocates
on their victory and added that this
was only a good beginning for the na-
tion-wide dry campaign. In Ypsilanti
every ward voted in favor of state pro-;
hibition. In the colored ward particu-
larly, the dry cause won an almost
solid vote.
Building Committee Gives Foundationi
Job to Grand Rapids Company

Field Marshal Mackensen, command-
er of the German-Turkish-Bulgarian
armies in Dobrudja, captured Cernavo-
da during liy great sweep northward.
Cernavoda, the eastern terminus of the
great .4 mile railway bridge over the
Danube, fell one. day later than Con-
stanza, Rumania's port on the Black
Sea. With the Constanza railway line
in his possession, Mackensen pressed
the Rumanians northward, in some
places as far as 40 miles. But as his
whiole line advaznced, his front, be-
tween the Danube river and Black Sea,
lengthened because of coast contour.
The Russians evidently waited for the
weakening of the enetny front, and
then attacked, under the leadership of
the celelbrated Russian general, Sak-
haroff. If, as Petrograd says, the Rus-
sians have fought their way to within
two miles of Cernavoda, it shows a
striking "come-back" on their part.
Paris, Nov. 10.--A German attack on
Sailly-Siaillisel on the Somme front
last night was repulsed after a brief
hand tt. hand encounter, the war office
announ ced today. The statement says:
On tfle Somme there was great reci-
procal artillery activity. In the even-
ing the enemy attacked our line at
Sailly-Saillisel and was driven back
after brief hand to hand fighting.
No action of importance occurred on
the Somme front today, according to
the night statement.
Berlin, via Wireless to Sayville, Nov.
10.-German artillery yesterday de-
feated several efforts of the French
and British to make advances on the
Somme front, the war office announced
today. The statement says:
British and French attempts to at-
tack between Le ' Sars and Boucha-
vesnes as well as to the south of the
Somme near Pressoire were almost
without exception stifled by our cur-
tain of fire at their inception.

Lantern Slides and Movies Show Life
of Americans Active in Eu-
ropean Conflict
Mr. Ernest Stanton of the American
field ambulance service in his lecture
last night on "Our Boys in the Eu-
ropean War," told of the growth of
the service and spoke of the life on
the western front.
After the battle of the Marne, about
20 Americans volunteered their serv-
ices and cars to take care of the
wounded. Now there are more than
200 men and ambulances in the Ameri-
can field service. Each section of 20
cars is equipped with a repair car
and a rolling kitchen.
The four reels of war pictures de-
picted realistic scenes of the war,
ambulances hurrying through a bom-
barded town, men carrying meals to
their comrades in the trenches, and
soldiers being decorated for conspicous
bravery. The American flying corps
was shown and Lieutenant William
Thaw, who has 16 aerial victories to
his credit, was among the men in the
A number of lantern slides were
thrown on the screen showing the
troops, field ovens, ruined villages, first
and second line trenches, and a fu-
neral service. In concluding his lec-
ture, Mr. Stanton showed the audience
a number of German, French, and Aus-
trian shells, gas masks, and hand and
musket grenades-
In praise of the American ambulance

big alumni smoker to be held at 2
o'clock this afternoon at the Detroit
Board of Commerce under'the auspices

gan-Cornell football game at Ithaca.
Mr. Donovan desires to give Michi-
gan undergraduates an opportunity to.

University and has extended them an
invitation to attend the smoker. Tick-
ets have been placed on sale at Hous-
ton Brothers' store and may be se-
cured any time this morning.

New York, Nov. 10.-After taki
the unofficial count of votes there wi
no doubt tonight that Woodrow Wi
son and Thomas Marshall, vice-pres
dent, had been re-elected. The R
publican committee would not vie
the unofficial count as final in wh
has been in many respects the mo
bewilderingly complex election in t
history of the nation. A conference
G. o. P. leaders was held.
A formal statement issued with ti
permission of Hughes declared the r
sult of the election could not be co
sidered final until official count h
been completed, and that many of t
returns were far from accurate, ma
mistakes having immediate bearing v
the result having been found. Th
said that they "owed it to the Amer
can people" to see that an absolui
count is made. The leaders expect t
official count to be complete by ne:
Monday. Those included in the cot
ference were: Sherman Wilcox, Georg
W. Perkins, George W. Wickershar
