With the arrest of George McCauley,
colored, in Indianapolis yesterday af-
ternoon, the Sigma Nu robbery case
became still more complicated. Ac-
cording to Chief John Kenny, of the
local police force, the Ann Arbor offi-
cials are in possession of evidence that
will establish beyond doubt .the fact
that McCauley was instrumental in ar-
ranging the attempted robbery.
In an interview yesterday afternoon,
Starks refused to make any definite
charges against McCauley, although
he stated that it was McCauley who
got him to enter the house. Accord-
ing to the police, however, McCauley
first led Starks to make the attempted
robbery, and then advised inmates of
the Sigma Nu house that such an at-
tempt was to be made. One theory is
that McCauley wanted to have Starks
killed so that he could not tell what
he knew about an alleged theft in
whicl McCauley recently figured.
While Starks admitted last night
that he did not know absolutely that
MVcCauley had deliberately attempted
to have him killed, he said that all of
the circumstances pointed in that di-
rection. According to Starks, Mc-
Cauley, who acted as porter at the
Sigma Nu house until Wednesday, told
him (Starks) that there would be a
considerable sum of money in a draw-
er on the second floor of the fraternity
house on Wednesday night, and that
there would be no difficulty in getting
away with it. Then, according to
Starks, the two were to divide the
As soon as he was certain that
Starks would make the attempt, how-
ever, McCauley is said to have gone tof
members of the Sigma Nu fraternity,
telling them an attempt was to be
made to enter the house that night.

In the best game played so far in
the interclass basketball league, the
junior lit team defeated the sophomore
lit team last night by a score of 29 to
23. The game went into overtime, as
when time was called at the end of the
second half, the teams were tied at 22
points. The result of this game causes
a three-cornered tie for the lit cham-
pionship among the fresh, soph and
junior teams of that division. This
tie will have to be played off before
the second round of the series may
be played.
Each of the teams played a good
game of basketball, and until the over-
time period,'it seemed that one could
pick the winner only by a toss of a
coin. In the extra time the juniors
caged two of their tries at the baskets
and profited by the foul route to an
extent of three points. The sopho-
mores earned but one point in that
period, gained from a foul.

Since the championship of the lit
group is undecided following last
night's contest, the second round of the
series will have to be postponed until
the tie is played off. The fresh lit,;
soph lit and junior lit teams have all
won two games and lost one. Ther
seniors are out of the running, having'
lost all three games. In order to
straighten out the muddle, Director,
Rowe has asked the managers of the,
three teams interested to report- to
him between 10:00 .and 11:00 o'clock
today. An attempt will be made to
secure the best means of settling the
difficulty. .

With the idea of increasing the quo-
ta of Californian young men who year-
ly go east to college, the letter sug-
gested that the best way to put the
matter up to the westerners will be
for the large eastern universities to
send large delegations of faculty men
as well as students. "We feel that per-
sonal contact and acquaintance with
the representatives of such colleges
will bring about the desired result,
and, as these young men can not
come to you to ascertain what you
have to offer them, we respectfully
submit that there is no more efficient
way of extending the national charac-

the faculty, graduates and undergrad-

a)_<fessor Adams Amplifies Points of
Preceding Speech
Prof. T. S. Adams, of the economics
department of the University of Wis-
consin, presented his second and last
lecture on the income tax before the
students in economics yesterday. He
amplified the points, taken up in Tues-
day's lecture, in regard to the ill ef-
fect of the property tax; refuted the
idea that it will reform the distribu-
tion of wealth since it strikes only the
,savings of the rich and not their capi-
tal. 'He also brought home the idea
that the income tax is more humane
than the old system because it is based
entirely on the ability to pay, and does
not strike new and unstable enterpris-

This led to the reception that was ac-
corded Starks, and which ended in the
McCauley got out of town as soon as
possible, after he learned that Starks
had been shot but not killed, some of
the fraternity men giving him enough
money to get to Indianapolis, where
he was directed to a relative of one of
their members.
When Chief Kenny heard Stark's:
version of the affair, he got a warrant
for the arrest of McCauley, on the
same charge as that sworn out against
Pitted Against Stars of East, Smith
Makes Creditable Showing for
(Free-Press News Service)
NEW YORK, N. Y., Mar. 4.-Captain'
Harold Smith of ,the Michigan track
team took fourth place in the 75-yard
dash tonight in the senior champion-
ships of the American Athletic Union
meet. O'Brien, his teammate, failed to
win a place.
The Michigan runners were pitted
against the speediest dash men in the
east, but made a creditable showing.
Irvin Howe of Colby won the 75-yard
dash tonight, racing the distance in
7 4-5 seconds for a close win over his
competitors. H. E. Meyer of the Irish
American Athletic Club was second,
with C. W.'Loomis of the Massachu-
setts Institute of Technology as third.
Smith of Michigan was fourth..
Loomis had been picked by many to
win the event, and the work of the
Colby man was a surprise to even his
admirers. The fact that three college
men took places in this event, in which
were entered many of the stars of New
York City and other eastern athletic
associations, is considered a big vic-
tory for the "Varsity" men.
Graduate Students Guests of Seniors
Post-graduate students in the cur-
riculum in forestry will be the guests
of the senior forestry class at a dinner
to be given at 7:00 o'clock Saturday,
March 13, in Mack's new tea room.



"The primary cause of the trouble
with the student council is that the
organization has not been positive,"
said Allan T. Ricketts, '15E, former
member of the body, at the third meet-
ing of the Forum held at the Union
last night. "The council has been sat-
isfied with administering what laws
were necessary," he continued. "It
has not been given credit as a body,
and I lay the indifference ofthe stud-
ent body at the root of the,whole mat-
"Campus spirit is not' behind the
student council," stated Henry C.
Rummel, '16L. "The counc l ought to
represent the opinions of the student
body and take charge of student af-
fairs, such as class elections, spring
underclass contests, and perhaps such
a function as the annual football
smoker, which is now in the hands of
the Union."
"The constitution of the student
council," said H. M. Lacy, '15, presi-
dent of the council, "provides for the
overseeing of class elections,the care
of the spring contests and acting as a
judicial body in student troubles, One
thing which we members of the coun-
cil object to is the students knock
what we do, but do not offer any help-
ful advice."
Felix Baer, '16, asked, "Why hasn't
the student council the support of the
student body back of its actions? Per-
haps the actions of the council have
driven the support of the students
away from it, If the council hears
criticism, the council should disregard,
as there are always a number of
calamity howlers about the campus."
"The council welcomes the advice of
the student body, and is always topen
to suggestions," said A. W. Mother-
sill, '1i5.
In regard to the standing of student
councils in other institutions, one
speaker stated that he had seen the
workings of the body at the University
of Wisconsin, and that until this year,
it had been considered a failre.
"In line with the discussion con-
cerning class elections," said W. M.'
Shafer, '16, "I wish to say that for
some time I have thought of the ad-
visability of separating the women and
the men of the university in campus
institutions. Take a class meeting for
example. If a woman comes to it, she
is usually stared at, and in some cases
even insulted. I think that it would be
better for the women to - have their
own class organizations. I have seen
such a system successfully carried out
in another institution.'"
At the Majestic "Y" meeting' to be
held next Sunday night, a nominating
committee of three members will be
elected, and this committee, together
with three members of the Y. M. C. A
cabinet, will make nominations for the
officers of the association next year.
During the past two years, the Y. M.
C. A. has been late in making its nom-
inations, owing to the fact that the
annual Busrah campaign precluded
the cabinet's giving any of its kime to
the annual election.

Campaigners for members in the
Michigan Union Boat club member-
ship canvass, at the end of half the
two weeks allowed for the work, have
piled up the number of students regis-
tered,. the 'actual number being with-
held till after a committee meeting at
the Union at 5:00 o'clock this after-
noon. Work has also opened fire
among the alumni and faculty men,
John S. Leonard, '16,, who is gen-
eral chairman of the campaign, is en-
deavoring to energize the work which
has lagged somewhat during the last
day or two. Chiefly for that purpose,
all committeemen will assemble at the
Union at 5:00 o'clock this afternoon,
and for a luncheon, which will proba-
bly be given at the Union, at noon to-
morrow. Soliciting among alumn4
and especially among the faculty Men
which is now fairly begun, will be
pushed vigorously during the remain-
ing few days of the campaign.
Cooperation with the Eastern Mich-
igan Edison Company, is being arrang-
ed by Earl B. McKinley, commodore
of the club, in order to erect a tempor-
ary boat house near Barton pond, this
spring. This move follows .plans drawn
up by Intramural Director Floyd
Rowe for a boat house to be construct-
ed by students before the regatta, also
