with an eloquence and conviction that
seemed to shatter the stronger logic
of the Gophers.
The chapel was comfortably well
filled and the debate began at 8 o'-
clock. President Northrop announced
the question to be debated, which was
"Resolved, That adjudication of all
disputes between employers and em-
ployes should be made a part of the
administration of justice." Michigan
argued for the affirmative.
That all the debaters had studied
the question and its possibilities and
exausted every possible source of in-
formation for facts and arguments
was apparent to the audience. The
six men talked earnestly and with
conviction, but it fell to Michigan's
lot to be represented by able speak-
ers who were more able to present
and emphasize their points, many of
which were in no way any better'
taken than those made by the Gopher
debaters, in a manner which carried
more conviction and won for theml
the day.
Enthusiasm ran high throughout the
evening and the audience was a disap-
pointed one. Before the debate every
one confidently expected a victory for
Minnesota. Even during the progress
of the debate this same confidence
was to be seen and during the inter-
im during which the votes were be-
ing collected, and "prexy" was engag-
ed in opening and reading the decis-
ion, the hope of victory was not aban-
Applause greeted the first appear-
ance of all the speakers. Throughout
their arguments they were interrupted
by spontaneous outbursts of handclap-
ping as points were made by Wolver-
ines and Gophers.
The announcement by President
Northrop of the judges' decision how-
ever fell upon a disappointed crowd.
There was some little applause after
a moment's hesitation, but it was un-
like that which had greeted the speak-
ers during the progress of the de-
bate. As the audience dispersed it
formed itself into little groups and
the debate and the decision were dis-
cussed. Regret at the loss of the bat-
\,tle was expressed upon all sides, but
'here was criticism neither for the

to Christianity by London missionar-
ies. President Jordan said that the
islands now contained many beauti-
ful churches made of coral. On one
island containing about 40 people,
there was a magnificent church seat-
ing about 500. In illustration of the
lack of clothing President Jordan told
a remark that his boy made. On one
of his visits to the island, he and his
boy met the King. In commenting up-
on it later his boy remarked, "Well,
I have seen a real King, but he didn't
have a shirt on."
To the Editor:-
An article appeared in the Michigan
Daily yesterday which requires some
explanation. The item referred to the
dress of persons attending the "J"
Hop Concert. Does the writer of the
article intend to convey the idea that
all those not wearing dress suits will
be obliged to sit in the gallery seats?
If this is the intended meaning, some
good reason should be given for such
unheard of snobbishness. There is no
aristocracy at the University of Mich-
igan but it appears from the article
in question that someone thinks there
is and assuming the role of censor is
attempting to dictate to the student
body what clothes should be worn at
a concert given by a supposedly rep-
resentative student organization.
Another case of diphtheria was re-
ported yesterday when Howard C.
Hawkins, who rooms at the home of
W. L. Dicken, 213 Thayer street north,
was pronounced ill with the disease.
He is a member of the '07 lit. class
and comes from Richmond, Mich.
The announcement occasioned a
hegira on the part of the other room-
ers and the residence is now under
strict quarantine. Among the in-
mates was Miss Carrie Dicken of the
W. S. Perry school, but as every pos-
sible precaution has been taken no
spread of the disease is feared. Dr.
Loree is in charge of the young man,
who is getting along very comfortably.

The gist of interviews with Captain
Redden, Coach "Jerry" Utley, and As-
sistant Coach Johnson are that Mich-
igan has the best opportunity in
years to win the championship. With
six old men as a nucleus, a wealth of
promising material with which to fill
vacancies, and a competent force of
coaches, it looks as though Michigan
were already assured of victory on
the diamond.
The news of the selection of last
year's captain and pitcher, "Jerry"
Utley, for the base ball coach during
the coming season, was greeted with
the greatest enthusiasm on the cam-
pus. Utley is a competent player and
has displayed executive ability of the
right sort to make him a successful

memorial service was held in the
Congregational church in memory of
Mrs. Angell. The Rev. Mr. Patton,
pastor of the church, gave the same
address that he delivered at the fu-
neral. He spoke of the beautiful life
Mbs. Angell lived, and paid her a love-
ly tribute.
Professor D'Ooge gave a biograph-
ical sketch of the wonderful life she
led, and spoke of her many gifts. The
service was a very beautiful and im-
pressive one.
Earle I. Huston, '03, who recently
resigned his position as Mr. Baird's

Professor Tucker, of Dartmouth col-
lege, spoke before a crowded aud-
ience last Su:day night in the Meth-
odist church. His subject was "Moral
Maturity." He took Christ's definition
of moral maturity as expressed in the
Golden Rule. He pointed out that
today, more righteousness In the ab-
stract is not of great meaning in the
world. It is only as that righteous-
ness is embodied in our social rela-
tions that it has any significance.
Professor Tucker said that a good
way to reach moral maturity was to
mind your own business, The Univer-
sity of Michigan, he said, has done
this, and by so doing has greatly in-
fluenced the Eastern universitiescom-
pelling them to make greater efforts
to do their own work.
