REPORT THAT VILLA : CCUPIES
CITY AT PRESENT
200 BANDITS NEAR BORDER
Presence of Quevedo's 200 Guerillas
Threatens Juarez Rail-
El Paso, Nov. 25-In.a desperate as-
sault on Chihuahua City, Pancho Villa
gained a foothold in the city itself and
hand to hand fighting was in progress
in the streets, United States depart-
ment agents learned late today. The
latest reports were that Villista forces
had entered one side of the city. Late
tonight no advices of the outcome of
the struggle for possession of the city
had reached the border.
On the streets of Juarez rumors were
circulated tonight that the Villistas
had occupied Chihuahua City and that
General Trevino had been routed, but
United States agents said there was
little foundation for these rumors.
The presence of 200 Villistas com-
manded by Sylvester Quevedo, 18 miles
south of the American border on the
Jirarez-Chihuahua City railway line,
caused General Gonzales, Juarez com-
mander, to order 100 Carranzista
troops out to guard the bridge a few
miles outside Juarez. Attempts to get
supplies of ammunition to General
Trevino were abandoned.
Late today a United States govern-
ment oficial transmitting reports to
Washington said, "Until 1.0 o'clock to-
day General Trevino had been able to
repel every assault of the bandits
upon Chihuahua City. In only a few
instances had the bandits been able to
get any distance into the city. Each
time they were forced out, but we
have authentic information that Villa
had succeeded in penetrating into a
portidn of the town and has been hold-
ing it for hours."

the last sessions of the vocational con-

and noon. The forenoon session deal-
ing especially with matters pertaining
to the public health, was in the hands
of Dr. Elsie S. Pratt, of the health
service. Mrs. Victor C. Vaughn, Jr.,
of Detroit being unable to be present,
was represented by Mrs. Getter, head
of the visiting nurses of Detroit, who
spoke on the subject of "City Work in
Briefly, she outlined the history of
nursing throughout the ages, placing
especial emphasis on the, consecration
and self-sacrifice of the nurses.
Through a mistaken idea of economy,
nursing was placed in the hands of
the criminal classes in England about
two centuries ago, and was only res-
cued from the depths to which it had
fallen by the efforts of Florence Night-
ingale and her associates.
Explains Hospital Work.
Miss Elizabeth Harcourt of the Uni-
versity hospital ably handled the sub-
ject of "Social Work in the Hospitals."
"The scope of the hospital social work-
er," she said, "is as broad as the
need of mankind. It is the results of
poor social conditions which must here
be combated, the ignorance of food and
money values, and the failure of man-
kind to realize his responsibility to

Mr. Bishop spoke on the "Attitude of
College Women" toward library work.
"Library work," said Mr. Bishop, "is
social service work, and it cannot be
made anything else. Successful li-

Mary Malcomson. "Detroit felt the
need for a long time~ for a bureau to
obtain positions for University gradu-
ates other than teaching," she as-
serted, "and, although the bureau is
young,and struggling to keep alive fi-
nancially, positions are daily being
found for those seeking them. Trained
women are being placed'in positions
best suited to them, thus preventing
more misfits in life."
Practical Women Needed.
"The Relationship of the Association
of Collegiate Alumni to the College
Girl" was the subject of the talk given
by Mrs. Edmund Schmidt, of the Uni-
versity of Illinois. "Where are the
women to do the necessary thing,
scientifically and successfully?" said
Mrs. Schmidt. "The answer is, 'In the
practically trained woman.,'
Miss Mary Marshall, whose address
was postponed from the morning ses-
sion, spoke on the "Field of Nursing
for Women." She said, "The chief duty
of public health has come to be the
prevention of sickness and disease,
rather than the cure of them. The mod-
ern germ theory and scientific discov-
eries are responsible for the change."

Administrative Organization Plans to
Become Intimately Acquainted
With Student Sentiment
STATES POSITION IN LETTERS
Members of the student council
have compiled a letter to the student
body of the university for the purpose
of giving the students an idea of the
council's policy in regard to the de-
ciding of vital issues of the campus.
In the main the council asks for the
students' co-operation as can be seen
in the following letter:
"To the Student Body of the Univer-
sity of Michigan:','
"As the administrative agent of the
Michigan student body, the student
council has this year more than ever
sought to broaden and direct its ac-
tivities in the interest of the whole
University. A better Michigan and a
self-expressing Michigan is the coun-
cil's aim. In other words, it alms to
become, not only the administrative,
but the policy-forming division of the
student body. The council ought to be,
in every way, the political center of
the campus. To become such, it must
be in intimate touch with campus opin-
ion; it wants to be truly representa-
tive. It asks for practicable ideas, be-
yond what its own members can fur-
nish; and it asks for co-operation.
New Features of Work.
"To make co-operation effective, the
council wishes to call attention to
three new features of its work:
"(1) A regular office for the presi-
dent and secretary has been installed
on the fourth floor of University hall.
During certain hours of the, week (to
be announced later), a council officer
will be present to receive complaints
and suggestions, and to give informa-
"(2) The revised council constitu-
tion, to be issued shortly, will be dis-
tributed to the student body, so far as
the demand warrants. The council
would like to have its organization and
powers a matter of common knowl-
"(3), The council wishes to em-
phasize a thing which has been stated
before; namely, that its meetings are
open to the student body. The regu-
lar meeting is held every other Thurs-
day evening at 7:30 o'clock in Mason
hall. Students interested in council
procedure, or students with a definite

With the thermometer hovering
around the freezing point, 1,500 stu-
dents stood in long lines outside
Weinberg's coliseum awaiting thgir
turn to be admitted to the 1916 foot-

James Schermerhorn, editor of the
Detroit Times, was given a rousing
welcome after his introduction by
Harry L. Cault, '17L, who was chair-
man of the program. Mr. Schermer-
horn employed a fund of apt stories
and anecdotes, and declared that the
signs presaged a championship Mich-
igan team for the coming year.
Prof. William Henderson, of the
physics department assured the team
that whether in victory or defeat, the
men of Michigan were ever behind it.
Prof. H. R. Cross, of the literary de-
partment, briefly reviewed the per-
formances of the Varsity and express-
ed his belief that an undefeated team
was to be looked for in the not too
distant future. Staats Abrams, '17,
convinced the team that the insignia
about to be awarded had been well
merited and urged that they should be
worn upon Michigan's campus.
Prof. R. W. Aigler awarded the cer-
tificates. As the men were called to
the platform, their pictures were flash-
ed upon a screen, while "Bob's Ben-
nett, '18, Varsity cheer leader, direct-

Captain Maulbetsch said, "At the be-
ginning of the season, my secret hopes

that I can not be with them next sea-
