Caps are to be worn by all freshmen

The Union open house, the custom

Fresh Entertain
.Crod of Sophs
Sing and Yell for Sophomores; Some
Even Journey to
"We're the greenest freshmen that
ever came to Michigan," sounded
sweet to sophomore ears last evening
when chanted by 30 or more verd? ant
yearlings as they marched down Lib-
erty street in lockstep, with trousers
rolled to the knees, coats inside out,
and heads bare.
The fun started shortly before 8:00
o'clock when freshmen were captured
by twos and threes until a consider-
able number had been gathered. They
were escorted over State street to
Huston's and there gave the best en-
tertainment that was in their power
in the form of songs and high school
One fresh who had been used to
early retiring hours at home was
pulled out of bed. Hd was made to
put on his overalls which he had just
laid neatly over a chair back, and
was carried off to join the other un-
fortunate members of his class. Then
occurred the march down town to
Main street, where the fresh paraded
down the center of Main street.
A few of the usual stunts were gone
through with and then the sophomores
conducted their victims to the Michi-
gan Central station to meet the east-
bound train due at 8:38 p. m. When
the train arrived the fresh seemed
proud of themselves, for they insisTed
upon walking. from one end of the
train to the other. Those in the lead
were lucky, and got off before the
train started, but nearly half of them
were too slow, for the train pulled out
and took with it a number of fright-'
ened freshmen. Some wild jumps were
made, but most of the boys remained
aboard until the train reached "Ypsi"
and returned to Ann Arbor by various
Meanwhile the men of '19 returned
to the campus for fresh meat.
It wasn't long before a few pros-
pects were gathered in and given the
task of passing out slips of tissue pa-
per to patrons of the Busy Bee. Others
were perched on the top of the Uni-
versity Book Store sign where they
gave their flattering opinion of the
class of '19, bayed to the moon, em-
braced each other lovingly and sang
sourly. New recruits were obtained
every little while until the sophomores
got tired of the fun and quit. No one
was hurt.

Street Cars Collide on West Third
Street Bridge and Crash to
B. & 0. Tracks Below
Cleveland, Oct. 3.-Three known
dead and 19 injured with other possi-
ble fatalities is the result of a collis-
ion of two street cars on the West
Third street bridge here. After the
cars struck the bridge collapsed.
The street cars, loaded with work-
ers on their way home, collided and
telescoped when one motorman lost
control of his car and crashed into
the rear end of the car ahead. The
impactof the collision caused the
bridge to fall, throwing the passen-
gers to the Baltimore and Ohio rail-
road tracks below.
Police were rushed to the scene of
the wreck and ambulances at once
began to carry awy the injured. Many
passengers were pinioned beneath the
wreckage. Several horses and drivers
were carried down when the bridge
gave way.

Russian Czar Hard Worker
(By William P. Simms, United Press Correspondent.)
Imperial Headquarters Russian Army, Sept. 4, by Mail-Czar Nich-
olas, ruler of Russia's millions, and Commander-in-Chief of her armies,
works harder than any millionaire in Wall street. He puts in more hours
a day than American trade unions allow, by just as much again. He
lies down to sleep at night on a camp bed made of canvas.
The Emperor was on his way to work, walking through the rain,
when I saw him. He looks like his pictures except that he is quite
brown from living much in the open. He walks with an athletic spring.
Life at the front seems to agree with him. Nicholas rises shortly after
8:00 o'clock. At 9:00 o'clock he sits down to eggs, rolls and coffee. At
10:00 o'clock he goes to the staff headquarters and reads the report of
General Alexieff, illustrated with maps and plans. By 12:30 at night the
report is finished and the Emperor's orders to generals on the entire front
are dispatched.

Appeal for' Membership on
That Club Holds Old


"Let's go to the Union." '%
With these words as their motto the
fall membership committee of the
Michigan Union will make a house to
house canvass of all the .students.
The idea that the Union is the social
center of Michigan has had knock-
out blow in some student's mind by
the fact that the old quarters have
been torn down. This idea the com-
mittee will strive to correct and as
soon as the committees are complete-
ly organized work will be commenced
to get every male in the university
a member of the Union.
Jos. F. Meade, '17E, chairman of the
fall membership committee said last
night that the committees are fast
rounding into shape and the house to
house canvass would start soon.
"Just as soon as the students realize
that the Union is in better quarters
than last year, there will be an en-
largement of the membership list",
said Meade, "and the purpose of the
canvass from now on will take on the
aspect of showing the campus what
we really have."

Drs. Warthin and Weller Explain Re-
sults of Research Work at

Dr. A. S. Warthin, of the School of
Medicine and Surgery, was granted a
certificate of honor for research work'

Claim That Four Students Had Been
Involved in Scandal Is Denied.
Rumors that four university students
had been questioned by a Chicago de-
tective named Edmund Hill yester-
day morning in connection with the
nation-wide blackmail investigation,
were found to be without foundation
last night when Division Superintend-
ent of Justice Clambaugh of Chicago
wired that no such detective had been
sent to Ann Arbor. The local police
were instructed to hold any man
claiming to be Detective Hill, and to
notify the Chicago officials of his seiz-

Opposition of Conservative Upper
House Cause of Japanese
Cabinet Upheaval
Washington, Oct. 3.-Persistent op-
position of the Japanese upper un
elective House of Parlament to the
policy of Premier Okuma is respon-
ible for his resignation, news of
which was cabled from Tokio today
This is the belief of the Embassy here.
Okuma's party controlled the major-
ity of the Lower House but a coali-
tion of the other parties in the House,
was formed against him. It was said
Okuma has for some weeks felt un-
able to continue the government and!
face the Upper House when it con-
vened in December.- It is understood
that the Premier has contemplated re-
signing for some months and was
waiting for a time when he thought
he could arrange for a successor from
his own party.
Viscount Cato, former Minister of
Foreign Affairs, is said to be the can-
didate for the party of Okuma for
Premier. Okuma's opponents in, the
Upper House are advocating the ap-
pointment of Count Marshall Taren-
chi, now Governor of Korea.

parative quiet last night, desperate
fighting developea along the Rouman-
ian front with the Roumanians on the
general offensive, although Berlin re-
ports a victory for General Falken-
hayn's troops in Hermannstadt.
London, Oct. 3.-An Amsterdam re-
port announces that the Roumanan
monitors on the Danube were of the
greatest value in the drive of the Ro-
manians into Bulgaria. They sil-
enced the Bulgarian shore batteries
and enabled the invaders to advance
rapidly. The Roumanian invading
force is composed of several batt-
alions, according to the report from
the Bulgarian war office.
Immediately upon landing, the Ro-
manians du'g themselves in and were
well entrenched before attacked by
the Bulgarians. The battle now in
progress is raging most furiously
about the fortress of Rustchuk, on the
Danube, one of the most powerful
strongholds of the.country.
Berlin, Oct. 3.-Bulgarian monitors
operating on the Danube river have
destroyed a pontoon bridge con-
structed by the Roumanian Invaders,
according to an official announcement
this afternon. Desperate fighting Is
going on along the Roumanian front.
Austro-German forces have been com-
pelled to retreat owing to superior
Roumanian numbers north of Fogaras.

London, Oct. 3.-Violent Servian ar-
tillery fire has compelled the Bulgar-
ians to evacuate the summit of
Kaimakchalan ridge and Hill 2368, a
hill dominating the region northeast
of Folina, in Macedonia. A Bulgarian

Law College Shows Greatest Increase;
Only 20 Register in Lit
Few noteworthy changes in the en-
rollment figures were reported at the
close of registration yesterday.
The greatest jump was shown in the
law college. At closing time Monday

134 had signed up, while at dusk Tues-
day there were 303 enrolled. This
misses last year's mark to date by 39.
The falling off is attributed to the in-
creased literary requirements.
Both the medics and the dents show
an increase over last year. At the
close of1registration yesterday there
were 331 students enrolled in the
dental college, and 311 in the medical
school. The medical college enrolled
43 new students yesterday while 22
dents were added to the list.
The literary college showed the
slightest gain, only 20 students en-
rolling. Most of these were old stu-
dents, the new arrivals having prac
tically all come in. To date the en-
rollment in the literary college is
ahead of the final returns of last year
by 219. This total will be swelled
somewhat by the end of the week. Re-
turns from the engineering college
show only a slight increase over last

Ann Arbor Man to Run for Attorney
General on Democrat Ticket
Mt. Clemens, Oct. 3.-George J.
Burke of Ann Arbor, was nominated
for Attorney General of the state at
the Democratic State convention here
today. At a late hour this afternoon
the following other nominations seem-
ed practically certain:
Judge Rollin K. Persons, Lansing,
for the Justiceship of the Supreme
court; A. V. Fredericks, Traverse
City, Auditor General; L. U. Utley,
Escanaba, for State Treasurer; and
J. F. Wing, Detroit, for Secretary of
State. Wing has not yet consented to
make the race.
Graduates of the university are en-
tering the ranks of the movie profes-
sion. The following is a clipping from
the Red Book:
"William Webster Campbell is a
graduate of the University of Michi-
gan (1912). Shortly after leaving col-
lege he embarked upon a stock career,
where his good looks and undeniable
talent soon placed him in the front
rank of his profession. After seasons
of stock in the middle west he went
into picture work via Lubin's western
studio, though now he is kept busy in
strong, red-blooded roles by the Kay
Bee, Broncho and Domino companies."
Perhaps this is an answer to that
querulous query of "Why is a lit?"

Recommend Boiling Water in Spite of
City Notice That It Is
Office hours of the University Health
Service have been changed this year
and are as follows: For consultation,
every morning from 9 o'clock to 12,
except Sundays; for special appoint-
ments and emergencies, Monday,
Tuesday and Thursday afternoons
from 2:00 o'clock to 4:00. Minor op-
erating will be done on Friday after-
All new students enrolled in the uni-
versity who will not receive physical
examinations at the gymnasium are
advised to call at the Health Service
for examinations. This is desired
particularly of students coming from
cities where there are contagious dis-
eases. Students can be inoculated for
typhoid fever by purchasing the vac-
cine. The injections will be made at
the Health Service free of charge.
The service advises all fraternity,
sorority and boarding houses to boil
the city water before using it for
drinking purposes, regardless of the
report that it is now free from germs.
Well water is unsafe and should not
be used for drinking purposes.

the Michigan Union will be continued
this year. Abe Hart, '17, is in charge
of the dances and weekly comimittees

The accommodations for dancing in
the new quarters of the Union are an
improvement over the old. The mu-
sic will be furnished from an alcove
instead of from an elevated platform.
Access to the ballroom is easier and
the new dressing rooms are modern
in appointments.
