IS GRADUATE OF MICHIGAN
Speaker Secured for Every Evening
This Week by W. B.
Dr. Rice will speak at the Metho-
dist church at 7:15 o'clock tomorrow
evening, inaugurating the series of
talks he will give each evening during
the coming week in the interest of
the University Y. M. C. A.
The services of the eminent Detroit
clergyman were secured by Whitley B.
Moore, '18, chairman of the religious
meetings, and the news of his coming
will be welcome to the hundreds that
heard his famous "pep" mass meeting
in the fall of 1914. Dr. Rice is a great
favorite with all %college audiences
who have heard him. He is also con-
sidered as Detroit's most popular
Dr. Rice Is a graduate of the Uni-
versity of Michigan Law School and
is. very influential in Detroit business
circles. In fact, the Detroit Chamber
of Commerce postponed its popular
cruise one week to accommodate him
after having extensively advertised the
cruise for a previous date.
There is no doubt that Dr. Rice will
please his audiences here as he has
pleased them elsewhere. The success
of- the Detroit "Y" meetings was due
mainly to him and he will undoubt-
edly give M. C. A. work a big "boost"
in Ann Arbor.

Between the Brody and the
Zborow railway lines leading to

"Look after the first year men par-
ticularly," asks Mr. Iden, class leader,

men with you. We shall count on 25
new members at next. week's meeting.
Last year we numbered over 300 and
this year we must pass the 400 mark."
These meetings lasting from 7:00 to
8:00 o'clock, Saturday evenings, have
been successful in the past. The Bible
Chair..House has a total enrollment of

SUBMARINE TAKES 17 DAYS TO
CROSS OCEAN FROM WIL-
SUBMERSIBLE STARTS BACK
Lieut. Rose, Commander, Denies
Knowledge of Dispatches for
Newport, R. I., Oct. 7.-A grim Ger-
man fighting submarine, the U-53,
came into the harbor here this after-
noon. It was believed to have left
important confidential mail for Am-
bassador Bernstorff, and it slipped out
early this evening again to run the
Her voyage across the Atlantic was
the first time in history that a Eu-
ropean fighting submersible had jour-
neyed to American shores. Her com-
mander, Lieutenant Rose, swept past
the allied blockade, consuming 17 days
on his voyage from Wilhelmshaven,
stayed in port three hours and then
bade America goodbye.
His mission, he said, was solely to
deliver mail, but he professed not to
know the nature thereof. The subma-
rine needed no supplies when she came
into this port. Hidden inside her was
sufficient food and oil for three
months. There was no effort to con-
ceal the fact that the vessel was a
fighter, rather than a peaceful freight-
er like the Deutschland which recently
brought a cargo of dyestuffs to this
country. Upon leaving Lieutenant
Rose said he was going outside the
harbor and remain there for the pres-
ent. This was taken by naval men to
mean he would stay long enough to be
sure that his path was clear so that he
could get away as readily as did the
Deutschland from Norfolk. In this
connection they pointed out that naval
strategy teaches that a sufficient force
can pick up a submarine anywhere
within a range of 200 miles. Allied
ships, however, are not believed to be
off shore in any numbers.
OLYMPIC CHAMPIONSHIP GAMES
CLOSE AT INDIANAPOLIS MEET
Indianapolis, Oct. 4.-Olympic games
and athletic contests for centenial
championship medals is the last day's
program of the first week of Indiana's
observance of a century of statehood.
The contests are divided into three
classes, senior for college, junior for
high school boys and a third for high
school athletes, members of the In-
diana Athletic association. More than
250 athletes are entered in the events.
Gov. Ralston is to award the medals.
A Word from the President
My attention has been called to the fact, that on several c ". ic u , since
the opening of the University, disturbances have. occurs ((d upon the
streets of the city and elsewhere, due to the thout htiess
enthusiasm of some of the members of the lower classes. :While the
University authorities recognize and favor regulated contests between
classes, they cannot permit anything that disturbs the public peace or that
is in any respect in the nature of "hazing."
That which is apparently innocent amusement in the beginning not
infrequently, because not regulated, degenerates into riotous conduct that
brings disgrace upon the University and results in severe disciplinary
measures. The good name of the University so generously supported by
the people of the state for the benefit of those who come here for an edu-
cation, is largely in the keeping of the students. All should remember this
and on all occasions avoid conduct that will provoke unfavorable com-
Because of the consequences that will inevitably come from a continu-
ance of the disturbances to which I refer, I must request that they
cease at once and that class enthusiasm manifest itself hereafter only
throught the contests regulated by the student council.

COLISEUM SECURED FOR TALK ROUMANIANS ATTACK BULGARIA
William Jennings Bryan will appear
here Sunday evening October 22, in
the Coliseum under the auspices of the
Washtenaw dry committee, having been
secured for campaign work in Michi-
gan through the state dry committee.
Mr. Bryan will come to Ann Arbor
after speaking in Toledo Sunday morn-
ing and in Adrain Sunday afternoon.
Bryan's work for prohibition in var-
ious states which have voted upon the
ammendment to their constitution has
met with the greatest results, and it
is in the hopes of sweeping aside the
objections to the proposed law by his
matchless eloquence and logic, that
the great Commoner has been secured
for the state campaign. It is the be-
lief of the local committee that his
work will result in a dry state if he is
anywhere as near successful as he was
Arrangements are now being made
to secure the Coliseum, where "Billy"

day morning, for Bryan's address, for

ed out to hear the former Secretary
of State have invariably been too large
to be accommodated in Hill auditor-
ium. The Coliseum will seat 10,000
people, and is by far the largest avail,
The coming of Mr. Bryan so shortly
before Mr. Sunday appears will bring
closely together the two best "drawing
cards upon the platform today and will
enable Michigan students to hear on
successive days the two most effective
speakers able to be secured.
London, Oct. 7.--Smashing with
heavy hammer blows, the Russo-Rou-
manians are attempting to drive Von
army out of Dobrud3a, by a swift turn-
ing movement. A large Russian force
landed at the Roumanian port of Con-
stantza, joined the forces operating
along the Danube and launched a sud-
den attack against von Mackensen's
The Russian war office announced
the capture of two villages and sur-
rounding heights. The Roumanian
war office tonight reported the cap-
ture of more German trenches in the
same region. London military men
are awaiting with tense interest the
outcome of the great battle now rag-
ing in Dobrudja.
Striking at von Mackensen's right
flank the Russians and Roumanians
are striving to bend in this wing, press
the Teuton forces back against. the
Black Sea, and force the evacuation
of Dobrud ja by the threat of envelop-
ment and capture.
An unconfirmed Ronne wireless dis-
patch this afternoon declared that a
new Roumanian force had crossed the
Danube for a fresh invasion of Bul-
garia, presumably as a part of the
turning campaign. In all theaters of
war the allies are now on the of-
