FORMER RECORDS
ARE SMASHED BY
FALL ATTENOENCE
LIT COLLEGE GETS INCREASE
OF 136 OVER LAST YEAR;
TOTAL r, 707
SLAVS TO BE NUMEROUS
Russians and Poles Given Official
Credentials to Attend Amer-
ican Colleges
In all probability the 8,ooo mark
will be closely approached this year.
Figures given out by university
authorities for registration up to
Friday night indicate that all for-
mer attendance records of the uni-
versity will be broken this year.
The present total for the college of
Literature, Science, and the Arts is
1,707. This is 156 more than the
registration at the same time last
year. Figuring on the basis of the
experience of last year the total
gain for the lit college this year
cannot be less than i6o, and a gain
for the whole university of at least
400 is expected.
Although figures are not avail-
able for the exact registration in
any but the lit college, -R. A. Camp-
bell, treasurer of the -university,
has stated that there is an unusual-
ly heavy early registration this year
in all departments. The freshmen,
especially, seem anxious to get here
early and to get settled. The ma-
iority of the upperclassmen will
register today and Monday. On ac-
count of the heavy registration on
the first days there has been less
congestion than formerly, and there
were very few cases where students
had to'wait long in line.
An unusual number of Russians
probably will be an addition to the
university. this year. A great: num-

London Gets New Lord Mayor
London, Sept. 30.-Sir William
Henry Dunn was yesterday elected
Lord Mayor of London. He will take
office in November, and will be the
third Roman Catholic Lord Mayor
of London in recent years. 'He was
closely associated with Sir William
Treloar in the work in improving
the condition of thousands of Lon-
don's poor cripples.
ber of certificates of entrance has
been sent to these Russians, who
hold diplomas from "gymnasia" in
Russia and who are permitted to
leave the country to attend Ameri-
can universities by a recent order
of the Russian government, which
has given them official credentials,
excusing them from military duty.
Two entrance certificates have been
issued to graduates of the East
Chinese Railroad high school, in
Harbin, Manchuria.
Polish diplomas also are coming
in to the office and are being hon-
ored. Many of the foreigners who
have received credentials may not
enter, but several Poles already have
registered.

"BILLY" SUNDAY
MAY SPEAK HERE
ABOUT OCTOBER 23
NOTED REVIVALIST MAY
GIVE SERMON IN WEIN-
BERG'S COLLISEUM
ADDRESS IS FOR STUDENTS
Large Ann Arbor Delegation Visits
Evangelist in Detroit Where
He is Campaigning
"Billy" Sunday, noted revivalist,
who is at present conducting a cam-
paign in Detroit, may deliver one
of, his acrobatic sermons in Ann
Arbor on Monday afternoon, Octo-
ber 23, in the Weinberg Colliseum.
Sunday will decide whether or
not to appear here at the Kresge
home in Detroit today where he is
to be visited by an Ann Arbor dele-
gation composed of students, min-
isters, and business men. Already
the Sunday campaign association
has given Ann Arbor October 23 as
a tentative date.
Such an address would be chiefly
for students in the university, it is
believed. Only the short distance
from Detroit would enable Sunday
to make this visit, since he is busy
every afternoon and evening, with
the exception of Monday, at his
mammoth tabernacle situated on
Cass avenue near Second.
At least 6o inhabitants of Anti
Arbor left this morning on a special
car, bound for the Kresge home ii
Detroit, where Sunday is stopping
during his campaign, to urge th4
revivalist to appear here. Follows
ing the conference with Sunday,
the delegation will disperse, plan-
ning to attend Sunday's afternoon
meeting before returning to Ann
Arbor.
