Dies on Birthday.
Leslie Butterfield was born just 27
years ago Wednesday, the day on
which he met his death in the waters
of the Huron. From all of the indica-
tions, he drowned within a short time
after he visited the little house on
Wall street and sought shelter.
Whether he wandered into the river,
weak from exposure, or whether he
plunged into the icy waters in search
of relief from his delirium, will always
remain a mystery. The body had
been in the water for some time and
the position of the arms and legs was
indicative of the, fact that drowning
caused death. There was a cut over
the right eye and the feet were bad-
ly lacerated. It is probable that the
cut was made by the rocks in the riv-
There can never be any definite
knowledge of the wanderings of the
sick man. The bruised feet are good
evidence that the deranged student
ran, without any particular aim, over
the stones and gravel roads of .the
boulevard and lower part of Ann Ar-
bor. But this is mere conjecture.
Will Not Hold Inquest.
Coroner Johnson decided that no -
inquest was necessary. As soon as the
body was recovered, he visited the
general hospital and secured the state-
ments of the nurse, who was with
Butterfield at the time of his escape,
and of the orderly, who was on duty
in the corridor. After a thorough in-
vdstigation of the case, the coroner
felt that the hospital authorities could
not be blamed for the unfortunate af-
fair and that it was useless to im-
panel a jury.
As far as can be learned, the hospit-
al authorities were not responsible
for the escape of Butterfield. The
nurse, who was with him, is carrying
a bruised face as a result of the tussle
and from all accounts, did all in her
power to quell the delirious patient.
She is heartbroken over the affair and
is on the verge of a nervous break-

That there is a Michigan spirit bDe-
sides that for use in the cheering sec-
tion, was demonstrated by the way
in which the students answered the
call for searchers. Long before the
appointed hour yesterday morning,
crowds of willing workers assembled
on the lawn in front of the Michigan
Union clubhouse. By the time that the
leaders had been instructed, over 200
students were awaiting orders.
There was no lagging and no quer-
ies as to the amount of time the search
would take. Each man had come
prepared to spend a long day in
tramping the country to find the miss-
ing classmate. They were all ready
to go to the last ounce of their
A most effective organization had
been perfected for the search. The
country and parts of Ann Arbor which
lay near the hospital were divided
into sections, and each section was
assigned to a leader and squad of fif-
teen men. Before the report of the
finding of the body had been verified,
the parties were all on the scene of
their work and had commenced to
search. Then came the tolling of the
bell, which called them back, while
automobiles scurried through the
country after the most distant parties.
