thorities; Moving Pictures to
Be Taken of Event.
Friday, October 13, is Angell Me-
morial day. Today the first opera-
tions on the new Michigan Union
building, named in honor of the noted
educator, will be commenced when
the site is ploughed to loosen up the
dirt for the excavators' shoves. That
every student in the University may
have a chance to honor Michigan's
grandest man, authorities have ar-
ranged tomorrow morning for every-
one connected with the University an
opporunity to throw a spade full of
dirt from the Union site.

o'lock, lines of fours will be formed
extending from South University av-
enue down to State street. The-col-
umns will march to the new Union
site and each man will throw a shovelr
full of dirt into awaiting wagons.
Members of the senior class will be
appointed to keep order and as each
'mian throws his shovefull of drt he
will pass the shovel into the hands
of the man back of him and march out
to make room for the incoming stu-
Moving pictures will be taken of
the event by E. H. Speare, the photog-
rapher who is taking pictures of Ann
Arbor for a municipal movie. These
pictures will be shown throughout the
country as evidence of the remem-
brance of Michigan's students for
President Angell.
A large number of wagons and
shovels have been provided for the
event by the Union authorities in or-
der that there may be no confusion.

Speak at Pikeville


President Assails Hughes for
Time in Indianapolis


(By Robert J. Bender, United Press
Staff Corespondent.)
Indianapolis, Oct. 12. -Assailing
Charles E. Hughes personally for the
first time in the campaign, President
Wilson today said, "any man who re-
vives sectionalism in this country is
unworthy of thetconfidence of the na-
tion." The great crowd cheered loud
for several minutes.
"I didn't come here to talk politics,
as you well know," the president said
during a plea for good roads, "but I
must say this," and he spoke of the
sectionalism issue raised by his po-
litical opponent. "The man who raises
this cry of sectionalism," he said,
"supports his own provincialism, his
own ignorance. It is the depth of anti-
patriotic feeling." The president said
that co-operation is absolutely neces-
sary for the new nationalism of Amer-
"With one body pulling one way and
another pulling another, we cannot do
anything for the world. The United
States must be ready with a united
force. We can no longer play with
the elements of our force. We have
got to combine the efforts of our in-
dustry under expert leadership, along
the new lines of a new age. I want
to see universal co-operation."
Again, however, the president
launched into politics, saying, "politics
as a means of running for office is
comtemptible. A man once told me
that most politicians talk through their
hats. Talking through hats should be
a dead issue. Politics should be fea-
tured by this slogan, 'put up or shut
up'." The crowd rose to its feet and
cheered for four minutes.,
At a luncheon given in his honor by
Governor and Mrs. Ralston, the non-
partisian atmosphere which the presi-
dent has tried to throw about all his
recent trips was strongly apparent.

Enlistment Stations to Be Placed

military training meeting at the Union

cess of the movement is assured,"
said a leader of the movement. Every

ience and attendance at the meetings.
The meeting originated from the de-
sire on the part of a number of stu-
dents to see that the enthusiasm dis-
played last year on the question of
military training be crystalized this
year into a definite and permanent or-
ganization. A committee will be ap-

hoped to secure an active participa-

Railroad Officials Declare Deliberate
Attempt Was Made to Derail
Candidate's Train
(By Perry Arnold, United Press Staff
Louisa, Ky., Oct. 12.-Charles E.
Hughes put Pikeville, Pike county,
Kentucky, on the map today. No pres-
idential candidate ever before honor-
ed the village with his presence. The
Republican nominee spoke at the
courthouse square on Americanism in-
cidently paying his audience a deli-
cate compliment.
"I know the strength of character
and the resolution of purpose of the
good people of these mountains," he
said. "I do not expect there is a
place in America where I have had
greater desire to visit than in these
Kentucky mountains."
What railroad officials believe was
a deliberate attempt to derail the
special train on which Hughes was
travelling was discovered just before
the train left Paintsville this' after-
noon. One of the rails had been
smashed apparently with a sledge
hammer, trackmen said. A new rail
was put in place and the candidate
was delayed only for a few minutes.
Socialist Leader Charges French
Censors Keep People in Ignor-
ance of Fat.
Berlin, via Wireless to Sayville, L..
I., Oct. 12.-"The French censors are
keeping the French people in ignor-
ance of the fact that they can have
peace, with French and as well as
Belgium soil freed of Germans, with-
out shedding another drop of blood,"
Philip Scheidemann, Socialist leader
and supporter of Chancellor von Beth-
mann-Holweg, declared in a most im-
portant address at today's session of
the reichstag.
The meeting was marked by the an-
nouncement from National Liberal
Leader Bassemann that the main com-
mittee of the reichstag had reached no
conclusion in its discussion of the
question of reviving indiscriminae
warfare, but had agreed that there
should be no public discussion of the,
question in the reichstag. Schelde-
mann's speech created great interest.
"What is French will stay French;
what is Belgian will stay Belgian, and
what is German will stay German.
Th s the main basis upon which
ce will be constructed," he said,,
'but since Lloyd George and Premier
Briand preach war until the bitter
end, the chancellor is unable to talk
peace. The nations want peace. If
the contrary is said in any country
then it is an absolute swindle."
Freshmen Fai to Register for Physical
Exams; Must Be Done Soon.
As yet no definite date has been set
for the formal opening of the gym, but
on dope everything should be in readi-
ness about the .middle or last part of
So far scarcely two hundred fresh-
men have reported to Dr. May for
physical examinations. Those who
have not made arrangements for being
examined should do so at once by
stopping in the gym and making an
appointment with Dr. May or his as-'
sistants whereby they could be ex-
amined in the near future.

As in former years no one will be.
permitted to take gym work until they'
have successfully passed the physical
examination. It would be to the ad-'
vantage of all concerned if this was at-]
tended to at the earliest possible date
so that the classes can be arranged
and be ready to start by the time the
gym reaches completion.
On Friday evening in the First
Church of Christ parlors, a reception
is to be held for all Michigan students
and especially incoming freshmen.
There will be lots of entertainment
with rood eats. The affair is scheduled

War Secretary Supports Timeliness of
"Knock-Out" Interview Be.
fore Critics.
(By Ed L. Keen, United Press Staff
London, Oct. 12. - Lloyd-George's
crushing rejoinder to Richard Holt,
one of his critics in commons yester-
day, received equal attention in the
newspapers today with Premier As-
quith's statement that there must be
no "precarious compromise, mas-
querading under the name of peace."
Holt criticised the war secretary's
recent statement on peace. He com-
plained that Lloyd-George used sport-
ing terms like the "knock-out" ex-
pression, that his statements were un-
compromising, that the war minister
was not the proper person to express
the government's viewson foreign pol-
Turning directly toward Holt, Lloyd-
George said, "What you really object
to is not the manner, but the text and
purport of this interview." Lloyd-
George added that he was simply
elaborating what the British and
French prime ministers had said, and
what the cabinet and military advisers
believed. He spoke with impressive
emphasis, and said he wished he were
at liberty to "tell the honorable mem-
bers how timely the interview was in
its appearance."
The London papers particularly em-
phasize Lloyd-George's declaration
that the interview was timely and es-
sential, and not merely a personal ex-
pression but the opinion of the cab-
inet and war committee 'and also of
England's allies.
"Between these words," said the
Daily Telegraph, referring to the time-
liness of the interview, "even the dull-
est imagination can read. Plainly the
interview was expressed in time to kill
an intended attempt at intervention,
and it succeeded. There is no need
to say where."
H. Kirk White's, '17, resignation
from the student council was received
by that body and accepted at their
second meeting last night.
Other business discussed at the
council's second meeting was that the
present junior and sophomore classes
must buy another tug-of-war rope to
be used in the spring contests. The
old rope used last year has become
unfit for use in another contest.
Another feature of the meeting was
when the student council debated the
question of whether or not the stu-
dent body understands their actions
and expressed the wish that any stu-
dent having ideas for' any improve-
ment in student life inform the coun-
cil of his idea or attend the next meet-
ing of the council.
