Hester Loses First Race to Nebraskan
Star After Holding Lead During
Greater Part of Contest
Michigan sent six of her track stars
to the national collegiate track and
field championships that were held
Saturday at Soldiers' field, Chicago,
and all six entries placed in the vari-
ous events, two firsts, two seconds,
two thirds and a fifth place being ac-
counted for by the Wolverine ath-
Although there was no team cham-
pionship involved, the meet being held
to determine the individual champions
in the various events, Michigan rolled
up a total of 25 points. The Univer-
sity of Southern California, winners of
the eastern intercollegiates, was the
only school to outscore Coach Steve
Farrell's men, the Trojans account-
ing for 27% points. Eleven star ath-
letes composed the Californian squad,
while Coach Farrell was content to
enter only his brightest stars, many
sure place winners not being entered.
This is the third time in the five
years that the national meet has been
held that Michigan placed among the
first three schools, this being the best
record made by any school. The Wol-
verines finished far in front in 1923,
and second last year, besides the sec-
ond place earned Saturday.
Phil Northrup, captain-elect of the
track team, was the outstanding per-
former for the Maize and Blue, the
versatile performer taking first place
in his favorite event, the javelin
throw, and second place in the broad
Northrup hurled the javelin 200 feet,
10 inches in defeating a star field. John
Kuck, the giant weight man of Kansas
State Teachers college, was forced to
accept third place in the event. North-
rup, who fouled twice when clearing
more than 24 feet, lost the broad jump
honors by a scant margin. Phil did
not enter in the pole vault.
George "Buck" Hester gave a great
exhibition when he pushed the highly
touted Roland Locke all the way in
the 100 yard dash. Hester led the
Nebraska sensation for the first 90
yards, but a final spurt by Locke sent
him just inches ahead of Hester. This
was the first race the diminutive speed
star lost this year.
Harry Hawkins' slate of victories
in the hammer throw remained inviol-
ate when the former football star
again led the field, his throw of 148
feet 3 inches proving sufficient for the
first place honors.
Dick Doyle captured third honors in
the discus throw event which was won
by the world's record holder, "Bud"
Houser, of Southern 'California, who
smashed the meet record when he
hurled the disc 148 feet 114 inches.
Doyle's distance for the event was
more than 143 feet, which is the best
he has ever done in competition.
Nate Feininger is another Wolver-
ine entry who bettered his previous
performances, the Varsity quarter mil-
er upsetting the advance dope when
he took third place in the 440 yard
event. Feinsinger, who was less than
two yards behind the first two runners
to cross the tape, broke :49 seconds,
which was the former meet record.

Schoch, of Illinois, and Kennedy, of
Wisconsin, Big Ten champion, who
held victories over Feinsinger, were
forced to finish fourth and fifth, re-

verine scoring when he finished in

Messer Delivers President's Address
And Presides Over Exercises
In KoeIg's Place
At their last meeting as a college
class, seniors of the Literary college
held their class day exercises at 4:10
o'clock Sunday afternoon at the band
stand in front of the Library.
Harry G. Messer, class president,
presided at the meeting in the ab-
sence of Harry Koenig, who was sup-
posed to be chairman, and Messer also
gave the president's address, in which
he explained the plan of the memorial
of the class of 1926.
The memorial, which consists of
endowment insurance policies payable
to the University and to come due in
twenty years, will provide for the pur-
chase of something which could not
otherwise be gained by an appropri-
ation from the legislature.
The second number on the program
was the class prophecy, which was
given by Walker Everett. Everett'
painted a facetious picture of the Uni-
versity 20 years from now and ridi-
culed the present tendency in atlflet-
ics. Leslie Krieger, the class histor-
ian, was next on the program and he
extolled the record of the class in ath-
letics and the building program which
it had witnessed. He also mentioned
the death of President Burton and the
inauguration of Michigan's sixth pres-
ident, Dr. Little, which the class had
also seen.
In the absence of Doris Gladden
who was ill and unable to be present
the class poem was read by Margaret
Effinger; and George Ross, Jr., former
Varsity cheer-leader, delivered the ora-
tion, dealinghwith thequestion of one-
sidedness which enters into so many
lives both before and after gradua-
The last address of the program was
given by Dean John R. Effinger of the
College of Literature, Science, and the
Arts, who stressed the fact that the
path of life is never smooth and that
a good reward will always follow good
"The thing that should mark the
difference between the college gradu-
ate and the same man if he had not
graduated from college should be the
more complete realization of the ex-
tent and magnitude of the world and
the knowledge that there is therein,"
Dean Effinger said, "And the small
portion of that knowledge which any
one person can know."

Urges Subservience Of Self To Worthy
Aims As Opposed To Working
For Personal Gain
Speaking to an audience that com-
pletely filled Hill auditorium, Presi-
dent Clarence Cook Little delivered
the annual baccalaureate sermon to
the class of 1926 at 11 o'clock Sunday
morning. President Little chose as
his text a part of the 35th verse, 8th;
chapter of Mark, that whosoever will
save his life shall lose it, but whoso-
ever shall lose his life, the same shall
save it. He said that it was a definite
condemnation of self centered and
narrow interests-the pointed accu-
sation against the man who values
his actions by the standards of what,
they will bring him in prestige, power,
or worldly gain.
"You cannot fail, I am sure," he1
said, "to see that your greatest
achievements in college and the undy-
ing friendships and the living mem-
ories of great men are all of them
founded on the principles of complete
self denial of enthusiasm for an ideal,
lived hour after hour, day after day,
year after year."
President Little found many in-
stances of -men attempting obviously
to "save" their lives and creating
petty things, and "losing" their lives:
and attaining immortality. Among
the former he found the "carefully
consistent individually stamped para-'
graphs of Henry James," compar-
ed with "The Rover" and the "Rescue"
of Conrad in which Conrad completely
lost his own identity.

English Statesman Emphasizes Value
Of University As Preparation
For Life
Meeting for the last time as under-
graduated in the University of Michi-
gan, seniors in all schools and col-
leges of the University assembled at
Ferry field this morning for the 82nd
annual Sommencement exercises.
Garbed in the academic caps and
gowns the procession of almost 1700
me'n and women graduates started
the march from the campus to Ferry
field at about 8:10 o'clock, led by the
Varsity Band. A huge crowd of al-
most 20.000 that filled the immense
South stand, had preceded them, and
shortly after the arrival at the field
the program-started.
Sir Alexander Frederick Whyte,
former member of the English Parlia-
ment and President of the Indian
Legislative Assembly, gave the Com-
mencement address, and told the grad-
uates that the gifts of the University
are like the talents of the Parables,
without value in themselves but
capable of immeasurable multiplica-
tion through use.

to each graduate three keys, Sir Fred-
