Riot Is Climax of Stormy Day
Which Discontented Greeks Pa-
rade Streets of City
At a meeting of the law faculty yes-
terday noon it was decided to send a
floral offering to the family as a mute
expression of the feeling which the
faculty members experienced in the
loss of their associate. Dean Bates
and Professors Wilgus, Vogel, and
Drake were appointed as a committee
to draw up resolutions to express the
faculty's appreciation of Professor
Knowlton and its sympathy to his
At 4 o'clock in the afternoon all
three classes in the Law sclool met
together to decide upon a fitting way
to honor their late teacher and friend.
After deciding to send flowers to the
family as an expression of their grief,
a resolution was passed to establish a
Knowlton memorial loan fund for the
purpose of helping needy students in
the Law school. A committee of six,
two men from each class, is to have
charge of receiving the contributions
from the students which will estab-
lish, a nucleus about which the fund
It was also decided at this time that
the law students should meet in front
of the Law building at 2:50 o'clock and
from there go in a body to the house,
where if the plans are not changed,
they will form an honorary body guard
from the house to the cemetery gates.
Dean Bates stated that a memorial
service would probably be held for
Professor Knowlton later in the year.

London, Dec. 13.-The terms which
are believed to constitute the only
bVsis upon which the entente powers
are willing to enter upon peace ne-
gotiations were ascertained this after-
noon from various sources by the
United Press. One of the provisions
would be through full indemnity by
Germany for devastation to the nations
which she has invaded. The terms
are as follows:
The evacuation and restoration of
all occupied territory, including Bel-
gium, France. Poland, Serbia, and
Roumania, with full indemnity for the
devastation which German occupancy
of those territories has entailed.
Restoration of Alsace-Lorriane to
France, cession of the Constantinople
straits to Russia, indemnity ship for
ship and ton for ton for all destroyed
shipping, adequate punishment for
those responsible for atrocities com-
munitted by German forces.
Distribution of German Colonies.
It was emphasized in all quarters
that the only questions of a possibly
negotiable character in the peace pro-
ceedings might be as to the distribu-
tion of certain conquered German col-
onies, and as to the character and limi-
tation of Germany's future armament.
Ann Arbor business men, house-
wives, students, and boarding house
proprietors will unite in a mass meet-
ing in the high school auditorium at
7:30 o'clock Saturday evening to dis-
cuss the high cost of living. Speeches
by a city business merchant, a repre-
sentative of the Housewives' league, a
boarding house proprietor, and a stu-
dent representative of the student body
will be given.
That the women of the city will co-
operate in the movement is shown by
the fact that every member of the
Housewives' league which met yester-
day afternoon in the council chamber
was heartily in favor of mass meet-
ings at which different citizens and
students can express their approval
or disapproval of a boycott campaign.
The question of a public store was
also drought up by the housewives. A
letter was received from the Grangers'
association asking for some store at
which the farmers could sell their
commodities to the public direct. A
committee will be appointed to look
into the matter.

were interesting and instructive. +

By a unanimous vote, the Adelphi
house of representatives at its meet-
ing Tuesday night voted to adopt the
party system in all discussions, as it
is now in use in the federal congress.
Party leaders have already been
picked. Representative Henry F.
Massnick, '18, has been chosen to lead
the Democratic members, and Repre-
sentative Irving S. Toplon, '19L, will
head the Republican forces. The mem-
bers at this meeting lined up as fol-
lows: Democrats, 12; Republicans, 13;

may be changed when some of the
members who were not present at this

Missing German Consul Is- Found

One Greek laborer is dying in the
University hospital and another is in-
jured, while two are held in the city
jail, as the result of a riot which
occurred among strikers of the Hoov-
er Steel Ball company, in a Greek cof-
fee huse on Ann street last night.
It wa.3 believed that the man in the
University hospital, John Derijios,
could not live through the night.
The riot served as a climax to a
stormy day in which the discontent-
ed Greeks paraded the streets of the
city, were kept from the factory by a
force of 75 policemen, and attacked a
sub-foreman who refused to join the
ranks of the strikers.
The two Greeks now held in the jail
are: John Predonoski, and Nickolo
Derijios. The former was injured in
the fight in the coffee house, the latter,
is a brother dfthe man in thehospital.
The remainder of the rioters escaped
before the police arrived.
Trouble began to brew when a crowd
of the strikers drifted into the shop
yesterday afternoon. A quarrel arose,
during which Derijios was shot in the
stomach with a 38-caliber revolver,
which was carried by one of the
Greeks, it is believed. The police ar-
rived in response to a riot call. John
Derijios was sent to the hospital,
where it was first thought that he
would die within a few hours. At a
late hour last night, however, he was
Derijios was one of the strikers, it
is believed, who marched to the Hoov-
er shops this morning demanding an
increase of four cents per hour and
time and a half for overtime, Sundays
and holidays, as compared with offers
made by L. J. Hoover to give employ-
ees a two per cent increase in wages.
Turned away by the police, the
strikers marched up and down the
streets until noon when they met a
foreign sub-foreman who had refused
to join the "hold out." They rushed
at him, one of the men pulling a knife.
Some friend slipped a dagger into
the hand of the foreman and he met
the charge, cutting a finger from the
man's hand who held the knife. The
police were called and dispersed the
