British
London, Feb. 22.-Successful enter-
prises were carried out by our troops
last night on .different points along
our front.
On the Somme front we seized a sec-
tion of the enemy's trenches north of
Gueudecourt and took 21 prisoners.
The enemy's trenches south of Ar-
mentieres were entered on a front of
some 650 yards. Our troops penetrat-
ed deeply into the enemy's position,
inflicted many casualties, and captur-
ed 44 prisoners.
We also raided the enemy's lines
southeast of Ypres on a front of 500
yards and reached his support line.
Many Germans were killed and sev-
eral dugouts and mine shafts were
destroyed. Great damage was done
the enemy's defenses. One hundred
and fourteen prisoners were captured
including one officer, and four ma-
chine guns were brought back. In
all these enterprises our casualties
were slight. The total number of
prisoners taken in the last 24 hours
was 184.
Our artillery was active during the
day north of the Somme and at a
number of points between Armentieres
and Ypres.
French
Paris, Feb. 22.- Both artilleries
were active in the region of Butte de
Mesnil and on the right bank of the
Meuse in the direction of the Cau-
rieres wood and Bezon Vaux. Our
artillery caused an outbreak of fire
in the enemy lines on the western
outskirts of Grand Chenay.
An enemy surprise attack on one of
our small posts in the sector of Cham-
brette farm failed.
There Were no developments of im-
portance during the night.

With 320 names of out of town del-
egates actually in, regIstration for the
State Student volunteer convention
which opens this evening in the Meth-
odist church is exceeding the highest
number planned for by the committee
in charge. More than 80 names are
also in from this University, although
registration is not announced to begin
until 3 o'clock this afternoon.
Women of the various churches of
the city have agreed to serve four
meals to the delegates at a special
rate. It was formerly planned to have
these meals served in the Methodist
church, but the increase in numbers of
the out of town students necessitates
serving in the Presbyterian church at
the Ame time.
Practically all of the delegates are
expected to arrive in Ann Arbor by 6
o'clock this afternoon. Registration
opens at 3 o'clock, and University stu-
dents and townspeople who wish to
attend the conference are asked to
sign at Lane hall at that time. Those
who wish to take meals with the del-
egates from other schools may make
arrangements to do so when they reg-
ister.
A tour of the campus has been made
possible foqr the visitors, and each of
them is to be furnished with a campus
guide-book by the University. Boy
scouts and camp fire girls of the city
will act as guides to show the visitors
to the places where they are to be en-
tertained.
Sessions of the conference are sched-
uled for 7 o'clock this evening, 8:30
and 10:30 Saturday morning, 4 o'clock
Saturday afternoon and 7 o'clock Sat-
urday evening.

"PNEUMATIC" MAIL DELIVERY
NOW UP TO HEAD POSTMASTER
Washington, Feb. 22.-All the man-
datory provisions of the senate amend-
ment to the postal bill continuing
pneumatic tube service contracts in
New York, Philadelphia, Boston, Chi-
cago, St. Louis, and Brooklyn were
struck out by the house today, but the
provision of $1,000,000 "for the trans-
mission of mail by pneumatic tubes or
other similar devices" was left in.
That would leave the matter of tubes
to the postmaster general's discre-
tion. The question, however, will come
up again when the bill goes to con-
ference between the two houses.

of getting together on a basis that will
be acceptable to both sides. When -the
reunion come. as come it will, the
alumni here, almost to a man, will wEl-
come it with the utmost enthusiasm.
and will give thanks that all differ-
ences are settled and forgotten."
Present Situation Bad
Mr. Sherman, in giving his persional
opinion on the matter, says:
"I am unqualifiedly and enthusias-
tically in favor of renewing relations
with the conference colleges, if such
an arrangement can be made. I am in
favor of forgetting the past and look-
ing only to the present" and future. 1
believe that the present situation is
productive of positive injury to both
the alumni and the University. I be-)
lieve that the resumption of relations
with the conference colleges would
mean a-re-awakening of loyality and
spirit that will result in lasting good
to' both under-graduates and alumni,
as well as to the University itself."

(Continued from Page One.)
The investigations which have been
going on in regard to the conference
situation for the past several months
were kept secret, and it is doubtful if
many people knew that the athletic
board was contemplating such a step.
The "return-to-the-conference" agita-
tion has been felt everywhere among
Michigan alumni, however, and where
the referendum was used a strong
sentiment in favor of going back to
the West was evidenced.
