Clarksburg, W. Va., Oct. 11.-Can-
didate Hughes today made a curt de-
niel of charges made by Norman Hap-
good that there Is an understanding
between himself and German propa-
gandists. He did not mention the
charges specifically nor refer to Hap-
good by name.
"I have no understanding, no agree-
ments, no intrigues, with anybody,"
Hughes said, "but I stand for the in-
terests of the United States and the
protection of American lives, Ameri-
can property and American commerce
throughout the world." Hughes
preached a sermon on prosperity. He
deplored the present "unhealthy" con-
dition, declaring that the hopes of
workingmen are "built on sand."
Switching to criticism of the admin
istration's Mexican policy, Hughes
"I desire tm see our peace main-
tained. We can do that. Our friends
talk about their policy, particularly in
Mexico, as though it were a policy of.
peace. It has not been a policy of
peace. It has been a policy of de-
struction of the lives and property of
American citizens because of the with-
drawal of protection to which they

ing of hundreds of Mexicans, our own

Answers To Note
Awaited By U. S.
England, Russia, France and Japan
Warned Against Sinking
Washington, Oct. 11.-The United
States is expecting an early reply from
Great Britain, Russia., France, and
Japan, who have been told that they
must accept responsibility if one of
their warships sinks a United States
submarine by mistake. The activities
of the German U-53 have transformed
what might have been merely an
academic question into a serious in-
The position; of the United States
was made known to the four powers
in a memorandum delivered more than
a month ago, but only made public to-
day. It was in answer to a memor-
andum to all neutrals by the allied
governments following the visit here
of the merchant submarine Deutsch-
land, and the activities of German sub-
marines in Scandinavian waters.
Paris, Oct. 11.-Owing to the fact
that the new French liner La Fayette
which sailed Sunday for New York is
now approaching the zone of recent
German submarine activities off the
American coast, local agents made
public this afternoon a report received
by wireless which said all was well.
The La Fayette is carrying 334 pas-
sengers and a large amount of mail.
Toledo, Oct. 11.-A three per cent
quarterly dividend on common stock
of the Willys-Overland company was
declared at armeeting of the executive
committee here today.
Grand Rapids, Oct. 11.-After more
than. a week's search for Miss Lela
Hartson, Portage school teacher who
disappeared October 1 while on her
way to visit her mother in Memphis,
authorities found the young woman
this morning in a Grand Rapids hos-
pital suffering from nervous break-
down. It is thought she boarded the
train while ill. She had taught in the
Portage school five weeks.

armies have taken 2,216 prisoners

Berlin, via Wireless to Sayville, Oct.
11.-The Italians launched a general
attack against Austrian positions south
of Goritz Monday after an eight-day
bombardment. This enemy's "might"
attack was repulsed at every point,
Vienna declared, the Italians suffering
the heaviest losses.
A Suggestion From the President.
It is only for the exercises of Convocation that the regents of the
university, the members of the different faculties, and the students of
all of the schools and colleges are called together. This celebrations is in-
tended to emphasize the solidarity of the university-to make prom-
inent the sentiment that whatever our school or college, we are first, last,
and all the time loyal to the university. To get together for brief exercises
once each year is quite worth while.
But in order that the celebration may be a complete success, the
Auditorium must be filled. I trust, therefore, that all the schools and col-
leges will be represented by a large attendance. 'Let every student feel
that it is his duty to be present. The exercises will be brief and of a
character to interest.
H. B. HUTCHINS, President.

155 SCENES TO BE TAKEN
"Now for the afternoon tea scene.
We'll require about 15 ladies. Come
on down, you girls up there." "Oh,
These remarks were exchanged be-
tween Prof. H. A. Kenyon and the
women of the Newberry Residence
yesterday morning, during the film-
ing of the preliminary scenes for the
municipal movie. The place was the
south porch of the residence. Tables
and chairs, from the dining room, and
a loaf of bread or so from the kitchen,
furnished the props.
When the call for supes came, the
owners of the heads disappeared from
the windows above and arranged them-
selves about the tables to engage in
earnest movie conversation. Miss Mir-
iam Hubbard, grad, as the hostess,
being seated in the foreground. The
photographer took the scene.
"Let's have .a dance, ladies," said
Prof. Kenyon, issuing from within the
residence where a Victrola began to
play. The porch was cleared and in
a moment 15 couples were whirling
around to the tune of "Varsity," while
E. H. Speare, the photographer,
eagerly took a few yards of pictures.
Miss Hubbard was filmed next en-
tering the new science building where
a realistic touch was added when a
freshman rapidly overtook her and
preceded her into the building, care-
fully closing the door in Miss Hub-
Then a scene was taken of Mr. St.
Clair operating the model carving ma-
chine in the quarters of the naval
tank, the props being a borrowed cap
and suit case. In the new science
building a whole class was requisi-

By noon most of the campus scenes
had been taken.
Some of the scenes of every Michi-
gan football game were secured in

game. Coach Yost was snapped be-
tween the halves giving his usual lec-

Declares War Bill
Has Draft Clause
Allan L. Benson, Socialist, Denounces
Portland, Ore., Oct. 11.-A telegram
denouncing the Hay-Chamberlain army
reorganization bill as containing a
draft clause was sent to President Wil-
son today by Allan L. Benson, Social-
ist candidate for president, who is
here on a campaign tour. The text of
the message was approved by a mass
meeting which he addressed last night.
The telegram requested that the Presi-
dent set forth "your reasons for hav-
ing signed a bill which gives the
president powerin time of war to draft
American citizens into the army."
"These citizens of Portland," the
telegram continues, "are unable to
understand why the power to draft
American citizens into the army should
now have been given to the president
in such manner that it will remain
one of the president's powers until
such time as the law be repealed."
Benson's telegram declared that the
audiences he had addressed "at first
received with incredulity my state-
mnt that you had signed a bill con-
taining a draft clause."

for the 1917 Union opera will be held
at the Union headquarters at 4:15
o'clock this afternon. Earl V. Moore,
musical director, and Arthur Schupp,
general chairman of the Union opera,

charge are anxious to see a big turn-
out of musical writers.
It is planned to give the opera a
much earlier start this year, and to
do this all the lyrics and lines must
be finished as soon as possible.
