Austrian Count
IN'cently Appointed Ambassador to the
United States Faces Re-
fusal of Conduct
Paris, Nov. 13.-The Echo De Paris
today published an article in which it
is strongly hinted that the allies may
refuse to furnish safe conduct to
Count de Tarnow Tarnowski, newly
appointed Austrian Ambassador to the
United States, -who is to succeed the
recalled Ambassador Dumba. The ar-
ticle says the' Count may possibly be
charged with efforts to stir up the
Poles and anti-Catholic Slavs against
the entente allies, and inasmuch as
Tarnowski is an officer in the reserves,
his mission may be considered war-

Great Commoner Laughs When Told
Wets Would Not Attend
"Prohibition will greatly increase
the attendance at the University of
Michigan," said William Jennings
Bryan yesterday afternoon as he
passed through Ann Arbor on the
Wolverine express. "The number of
wet students found at the University
is so small that their loss will be in-
The commoner. indulged in a hearty
laugh when he was told that the argu-
ment had been advanced by some of
the wet adherents that prohibition
would decrease the attendance at a
state university, because the average
man who went to a university was a
person who was capable of self-re-
straint and wanted a *good deal of per-
sonal freedom.
"They are absolutely wrong," said
Mr. Bryan in reply. "Prohibition will
not diminish, but increase the attend-
ance, because the fathers who once
went to the university and squandered
their money in drink, will be all the
more willing to send their boys to a
school where drink is not so avail-

Choo! Choo! Watch Out! Barrow!
No, this isn't a "beard" story?
Here the loser gets to push instead of being "ridden," while the
winner gets a novel wheelbarrow ride down the diagonal walk.
Two seniors, D. W. Sessions, '17, councilman, and H. B. Tee-
garden, '17, president of the Oratorical association, made an election
bet. The loser was to wheel the winner down the diagonal walk in a
whellbarrow. Sessions placed his last hopes on Hughes, and to him
falls the privelege of racing the diagonal walk, while Teegarden en-
joys his election ride.
The bet will be fulfilled this noon, and will start from the North
University and State street entrance of the campus. Sessions will
stop and yell three times for Hughes at the start, the flag pole, and
the arch at the engineering building. The wheelbarrow will be furn-
ished by E. L. Roscoe, '20.

Changes to Come in Body
Members Themselves Want
Washington Hears



New York, Nov. 13.-Cotton touched
the highest level since the Civil War
on the Cotton exchange this afternoon.
July future sold at 20.07 cents a pound,
and May at 20.03 cents, making gains
of nearly $2.00 a bale today.
15 Cased Reported in That City; Au-
thorities May Declare
Dr. H. H. Cummings, executive head
of the University health service, an-
nounced last night that 15 cases of
smallpox are reported in Ypsilanti, and
issued a warning to students to desist
from frequenting that city. 'Phe au-
thorities fear that another seige
similar to the typhoid epidemic will
result if proper precaution is not
Dr. John Wessinger, city health of-
ficer, is contemplating the placing of
a quarantine against Ypsilanti. This
would prohibit residents from that city
coming into this city and vice versa.
This quarantine may go into effect
Seven new cases have been found
in Ypsilanti within the last two days,
making a total of 15 cases, all of
whom are women attending the Nor-
mal College. The dean of the institu-
tion has prohibited all girls from at-
tending house parties and dances at
Ann Arbor. .
Dr. Cummings also urged that all
students who have not been vaccin-;
ated within the last five years take
advantage of the free vaccinations of-1
fered at the University health service;
offices. Students are requested to re-l
frain from bringing normal studentsl
to the Pennsylvania game.

Attendance Will Increase.
Mr. Bryan stated that the attend-
ance in every university in dry states
had increased as a result of prohibi-
tion. Although he admitted that there
wereundoubtedly some blind pigs in
existence, he said, "Blind pigs are not
nearly so dangerous as those that can
When asked as to the prospects of
prohibition being made a national is-
sue soon in campaigns, Mr. Bryan said,
"Prohibition will be the paramoint is-
sue of the presidential campaign in
1920. This last election has made it
much easier for the Democratic party
to lead in the fight for a dry nation.
Seventeen of the 22 states that gave
their electoral votes to President Wil-
son are dry statesand the Democratic
party is no longer under any obliga-
tions. to such wet cities as New York,
Chicago, Milwaukee, and Indianapolis.'
Because the victory was won in the
south and the west, the Democratic
party will be more free to take the.
cause of the dry side than it would
have been had its victory depended
upon the wet cities. The Republican
party, defeated for a second time, will
look around for an issue, and will
seize upon the prohibition question as
their only hope. With both the Demo-,
cratic and Republican parties rivals
for the dry vote, what will the "rum-
mies" do then?,
Billy Sunday Helped Vote.
Concerning the part that Billy Sun-
day played in the dry victory in Michi-1
gan, Mr. Bryan said, "It is hard to,
say just what part any person or
group of persons had, because there
were so many at work, but there can,
be no doubt but that Billy has made,
a profound impression wherever he I
has spoken and that he has immensely
helped in several states. It is very
fortunate for Michigan that Mr. Sun-j
day was conducting his evangelistic
campaign in Detroit at the time that7
the prohibition question was being;
voted upon."
A delegation of dry workers met Mr.;
Bryan at the M. C. station yesterday,
when he passed through the city, and
the Washtenaw dry committee pre-;
sented him with a gold engraved knife
as, a token of his services in the dry
campaign in Washtenaw county.
Mr. Bryan and his wife are on their
way to New York where business will
detain him for about ten days. From
there he will go to Boston where he,
will report the Billy Sunday evangel-1
istic meetings for the Boston Record
on the 25th and the 26th of this month.i

Miclhigan First College in Country to
Recruit Naval Reserves From
All men interested in the formation
of the new University division of the
National Naval Volunteers are request-
ed to report at 7:15 o'clock tonight
in room 348 engineering building.
Plans for the permanent organization
of the corps will be formed at that
The University of Michigan is the
first college in America to recruit a
naval reserve division from its stu-
dents but it is expected that several
other colleges will form divisions in
the near future. The Michigan corps
will be divided into two divisions of
50 men each, a complement of five of-
ficers being attached to each one.
These two divisions will be organized
in conformity with -the provisions of
the Ahmy and Navy bill for the crea-
tion of a National Naval Volunteer.
They will be subject to call of the
President for foreign service subse-
quent to a declaration of war or to
repel invasion of the territories of the
United States, but will not be subject
to the call of the Governor for strike
or riot duty. The term of their en-
listment will be three years, but men
graduating before the expiration of
their enlistment will be continued on
the rolls of the-division without the ob-
ligation of presenting themselves for
drills and without pay. They may, if
they desire, be transferred to another
Under the provisions of the Navy
Pay bill, members of the divisions will
receive pay equal to one-quarter of
that received by men of similar rank
in the regular service. Uniforms for
non-commissioned officers and men
will be furnished by the government
but commissioned officers must pro-
cure theirs at their own expense. The
Navy department will likewise furnish
Springfield rifles, a three-inch field
battery, boats, a nautical library and
other equipment.
One drill per week wil be required
throughout the college year. In ad-
dition, practice cruises will be arrang-
ed for vacation periods. Those at-
tending such cruises will receive the
regular navy pay for their rank.
Men interested in medical ratings
may apply for further information to
Dr. H. S. Hulbert of the psychopathic
hospital. Those interested in the deck
and line division are asked to tcom-
municate with Prof. A. E. Boak or Dr.
J. R. Hayden, and candidates for the
engineering and aeronautic sections
with W. K. Heinrich, '17E. Buglers
and drummers may communicate with
C. E. Netting, '18.
Ohio Club Meeting Is Postponed
The meeting of the Ohio club, which
was to have been held this evening,
has been postponed until Thursday
evening, since adequate meeting quar-
ters could not be secured. The time
and place of the meeting will be an-
nounced in the next issue of The Daily.

Bucknell and Rochester Graduate
Succeeds W. H. Tinker as Head
of Organization
Mr. N. C. Fetter, prominent in social
and church work in Ann Arbor for
the past four and a half years, has
been chosen to fill the position of sec-
retary of the student "Y," made vacant
by the resignation of W. H. Tinker,
Sept. 1, 1916. Mr. Tinker, before leav-
ing to take up the work of supervis-
ing secretary to all the state univer-
ssity "Y'S" in the country, strongly rec-
ommended the appointment of Mr. Fet-
ter as his successor.
Mr. Fetter graduated from both
Bucknell University and Rochester
Theological Seminary, finishing at the
latter place in 1912. While in school,
besides being a good student, he held
important student offices and earned
a reputation on the athletic field. In
his senior year at Bucknell, Mr. Fet-
ter was editor of the Oran and Blue,
the official paper of the university, and
managed the production of the yearly
opera, besides winning three sets of
numerals on the athletic field and
playing on the reserve football team.
Following his four years work at
Bucknell, Mr. Fetter entered the .Roch-
ester Seminary with the intention of
preparing himself for the ministry. In
his senior year at this institution he
gained the distinction of becoming
president of the student body. All
through his college training, Mr. Fet-
ter showed unusual liking and ability
in executive work and it was the liking
for this kind of work and his desire
to be among the younger people that
led him to accept his present position
in preference to the ministry.
Mr. Fetter entered into the duties of
his new office this morning and will
from now on devote his energies en-
tirely to carrying out the work of his
Council Would Have Students Learn
First and Third Stanzas to
Sing at Half'
Plans have been made by the stu-
dent council to revive Michigan's an-
them "Laudes Atque Carmina" at Fer-
ry field Saturday afternoon between
halves of the Michigan-Pennsylvania
game. In addition to this a number of
new yells will be attempted.
The Michigan song, which is the
greatest college song in the country,
in the estimation of many, has lain
dormant for years because of the lack
of interest on the part of the student
body. D. W. Sessions, '17L, chairman
of the committee for the student coun-
cil, requests that all students commit
the first and third stanzas in order
to help the leader in getting the song
started. The words and melody are
easy to learn and with the enthusiasm
of the crowd at the game it is expect-
ed that the anthem will again be plac-
ed among Michigan's most popular

Washington, Nov. 13. - President
Harry A. Garfield, of Williams College,
son of President Garfielg; Senator
Walsh of Montana, and Democratic
Chairman Vance McCormick were
names centered upon in a discussion
here today of probable new members
of the president's cabinet after March
4. That there will be more than one
resignation by present members is
deemed certain.
One new member, in the opinion of
Harry Morgenthau, treasurer of the
Democratic national committee, is
likely to come from the west. Morgen-
thau was in Washington today. The
name of Senator Walsh has been given
consideration because he is from the
west. On the other hand there is a
general belief that he will be Senator
Kern's successor as senate leader.
Garfield Strong Wilson Man.
President Garfield unlike his brother,
James R., who was a member of
Roosevelt's cabinet,has been an ac-
tive supporter of the presidentas well
as a personal friend. If there are many
changes in the cabinet, they will come
as a result of insistence by the cabinet
members themselves.
This was learned definitely today and
was construed in official circles as a
blow to reports that the president
would remove Secretaries Daniels and
Redfield, and that he was considering
a new name to take the place of Sec-
retary McAdoo. The same situation is
true with regard to the post of secre-
tary to the president, now held by
Joseph P. Tumulty. It is considered
Tumulty will not be replaced unless
he strongly requests it.
Democratic Debt $300,000.
New York, Nov. 13.-The Democratic
national committee is $300,000 in ebt
after conducting the campaign for
President Wilson's re-election, accord-
ing to an announcement from the of-
fice of Henry Morgenthau, treasurer.
It is planned to raise $200,000 of this
deficit through popular subscription in
200 American towns, and the rest
through an appeal to various Demo-
cratic organizations.
St. Paul, Nov. 13.-OffcIal figures
from 33 of 86 counties and the soldier
vote from 21 counties give Wilson 1,-
004; Hughes, 179,233. There are no
soldier votes in 15 of the remaining
counties. The soldier vote included
in the above grand total was: Wilson,
649; Hughes, 614.
Alturas, Cal., Nov. 13.-The official
count of the vote in Modoc county was
completed this afternoon, and showed
Wilson, 1221; Hughes, 765. This is a
net gain' for Wilson of 55 votes over
the unofficial count.
Believe Canadian Cabinet Member No
Longer in Federal Body
Ottawa, Canada, Nov. 13.-General
Sir Sam Hughes, according to well au-
thenticated reports this afternoon, is
.out of the federal cabinet. The rumor
emanated from government circles
after the cabinet council rose this
afternoon at 4:40 o'clock. An official
statement is expected later. Just be-
fore the council rose, Sir Robert Bor-
den left to confer with the. governor

Bucharest, Nov. 13.-On the right of
the Alt valley the Roumanians have
been forced to yield ground in the re-
gion of Saracibste. Enemy attacks
on the left were repulsed.,
100 Attend U. P. Smoker Last Night
More than 100 attended the first
smoker of the year of the Upper Pen-
insula club last night at the Union. B.
T. Larson, '17M, president of the club,
acted as chairman and short snappy
talks were given by W. K. Niemann,
'17, and by Dr. H. H. Cummings of
the health service. A dance is sched-
uled by the club for Wednesday night,
Nov. 29, at the Union, and arrange-
ments are to be made for a special car
to go home at the Christmas vacation.

Announcement was made yesterday
of a "Pennsy Dance" to be given in
the combined gymnasiums Saturday
evening for Union members. The
dance will mark the opening of the
combined gymnasiums since the en-
largement began. E. C. Scfiacht, '18E,
chai an of the dance, stated that re-
freshments would be served and that
a large orchestra would contribute the
music for the occasion.
The price of admission will be 75
cents. and the dance will be held from
I 8:-30 until 12 o'clock.
