START RIGHT AND WEAR THE
Freshmen of the class of 1920 will
be welcomed at the mass meeting to-
night in Hill auditorium. They will
be taught Michigan songs and told
Michigan traditions. The meeting will
be, open to all university students,
though the first year men will be the
guests of honor, and will have a sec-
tion reserved particularly for them.
The freshmen have been told by the
committee in charge that they will1not
be admitted to the section reserved
for them without their grey caps. This
is a good provision. It gives the fresh-
men a good opportunity to start the
year right, and to show their willing-
ness to comply with Michigan tradi-
THE NEW "Y" BUILDING.
Old students, returning this fall,
find among the numerous improve-
ments and additions on and near the
campus, one new building of great
For many years returning students
and freshmen have witnessed t.e
rather pathetic spectacle of a litt3
white shanty nearly hidden by a big
tent. In this little shanty and tent
the University Y. M. C. A. has built up
the largest employment bureau run in
connection with any student Christian
association. A large service bureau,
helping students, both members and
non-members, has whirlpooled about
this site for years. The incoming stu-
dent is helped in his quest of a job,
a room, a boarding place, a roommate,
inexpensive second-hand books, in-
formation of all sorts. The site of so
many years of past service, and of
the promise of many more, is now
marked with a fitting memorial--Lane
hall, the new quarters of the "Y,"
soon to be thrown open for the use of
Credit for the past record goes
largely to the retiring secretary, Wel-
lington Tinker, and his many able as-
sistants, and to the board in control,
especially its chairman, Judge Victor
H. Lane, after whom the hall is named.
The credit for the hopeful year ahead
and for the past several days of work
in the last appearance of the big tent
and the little white shanty, go to the
new president, M. W. Welch, '17, and

ANN ARBOR STHUCK BY
HIGH COST OF LIING
Lack of Labor and Material Make it
Necessary for Merchants to
Abnormal commercial conditions,
which are being felt all over the coun-
try as a result of the present European
conflict, have become manifest in Ann
Arbor in the increased cost of food
stuffs, wearing apparel, toilet requisit-
es, in higher rentals, and in the steady
advance of all living necessities. Ac-
cording to statements made yesterday
by a number of Ann Arbor's business
houses, these conditions are due to
lack of labor and material.
Manufacturers of clothing, shoes,
hats, and the like, have been compelled
to compete in the wages paid to work-
men, with the large automobile and
munition factories of Dayton, Akron,
Detroit, and Toledo. This has forced
the prices of the commodity upward by
leaps and bounds. The head of a
large State street establishment said:
"November 1 will mark a very decided
increase in the price of hosiery. Silk
and linen goods are scarcely to be had
at all. Lacking both material and
labor, one of the largest hat manufact-
uring firms in the world has refused
to guarantee any deliveries. In the
case of leather goods, we are export-
ing many commodities for use by the
warring armies, of which we were ac-
customed to import to meet our own
demand. This scarcity at home can
not help but affect the price. The
wholesale cost of shoes has advanced
50 cents on each pair within the past
A new scale of prices has been
adopted by Ann Arbor barbers, follow-
ing a meeting of various proprietors.
Manufacturers of war munitions and
supplies of all kinds have recruited so
many from the tonsorial ranks by their
liberal offers, that only an inducement
in the fori of a higher wage has suf-
ficed to keep them at work. The fabu-
lous prices demanded for imported
toilet articles and supplies, together
with the war tax inposed by the gov-
ernment, has also been offered in ex-
planation for the increase in price.
Books, papers, writing and drawing
materials have advanced over 20 per
cent, and all materials demanding the
use of dye or colors have leaped to one
and one-half times their former cost.
One assertion, however, to the effect
that text-books in general would not
feel the upward trend, was the only
vestige of consolation offered by the
head of one of the State street book
A very material increase in the rates
offered by Ann Arbor'boarding houses
was at once apparent. An additional
cost of from a half, to one dollar is be-
ing demanded, and few are the excep-
tions where one may secure board at
the former prices. Room rentals too,
have advanced in proportion.
According to the general belief, no
dereases in the present cost of living
is to be expected, until the cessation
of hostilities in Europe.
