Sophl Medic Asks Damages for 'Being
Ejected From His Room.
Vernon W. LeMaster, '14 M, has
commenced suit in Justice Doty's court
against the landlord of the rooming
house at 715 E. Huron St., alleging
that he was unreasonably ejected from
the house. Philip H. Cale, '12 L, and
L. L. Thompson, a graduate student of
the law school, have been retained as
counsel for the plaintiff. According
to them, LeMaster was notified to leave
his room on the day before the se-
mester exams, in spite of the fact that
reasonable notice was not given. He
refused to leave until suitable arrange-
ments could be made, and it is alleged
that the defendant threw the furnish-
ings and belongings of the student into
the street, materially damaging them
and causing seriOus inconvenience.
Damages amounting to $10 are asked
and counsel for the plaintiff declares
that, if judgment is secured and not
paid, bodily judgment will be taken.
M. J. Cavanaugh has been retained as
counsel for the defendant and a warm
fight is promised when, the hearing
takes place on March 23.

The last ganw of the semi-finals in
the interclass basketball series was
played last evening in Waterman gym-
nasium. The soph engineers eliminat-
ed the fresh medics from the race by
a score of 29 to 16, and by virtue of
the victory will play the junior lits
for the championship of the campus at
a date to be announced later.
Last evening's game was fast and
exciting during the first period but
in the second half the medics lagged
behind and the engineers were enabled
to increase their lead perceptibly.
Team play on both sides was conspic-
uous by its absence, and the contest
took on the nature of a rough axd tum-
ble. White was the individual star
of the evening, netting eight field goals
for the engineers.
The championship game between the
soph engineers and the junior lits,
which was originally set for March 8,
and later March 13, has been postpon-
ed to an indefinite date. It is planned
to charge an admission to this game,
owing to its importance, and Interclass
Manager Anderson states that a date
will be set, probably next week, when
it will be convenient to use Waterman
