In a spectacular lobby which lasted
until 11:45 o'clock Wednesday night,
a committee of 58 local business men,
university professors and students
waged a word battle before the liquor
committee of the state legislature. The
lobby was to create sentiment in favor
of the Stevens bill.for thie prohibition
of liquor within a five mile radius of
all state educational institutions.
The local delegation which expected
to present their case at a morning ses-
sion of the committee were forced by
the committee, on account of press of
other business, to postpone their pre-
sentation until early evening, and
when at length the committee was free
to hear arguments pro and con on the
bill, the Ann Arbor delegation com-
pleted what was in the words of one
of the professors who was present on
the trip, "absolutely the most sane
and convincing arguments he had ever
heard in favor of prohibition.."
Registrar A. G. Hall was the first
speaker who addressed the committee
in favor of the bill and he was follow-
ed by W. W. Schroeder, '16L, who was
the first to present the case to the
committee on behalf of the students.
Two representatives of the Ypsilanti
State Normal college then spoke brief-
ly in' favor of the proposed measure
and they were followed by two Detroit
men who were part of a delegation
which had journeyed to Lansing to
lobby against the adoption of the bill.
C. C. Webber, '15, spoke in favor of an
"arid zone," and he was followed by
Prof. Horace L. Wilgus, of the law
School, who summed up the argument
for the local delegation, and in acd1-
tion presented some of the legal as-
pects involved in the provisions of the
proposed law.
The bill will be considered in com-
mittee next Wednesday.

"In the not far distant future, I look
to see Alaska add one more star to our
national flag," said Mr. Asa C. Baldwin
in his illustrated lecture on, "The
Survey of the Alaskan Boundary," at
Hill auditorium last night. "Most of
us erroneously think of Alaska as being
a huge ice-box of land so cold and so
far away that the ordinary pursuits of
life cannot be followed."
About 2,000 people attended the lec-
ture, and at all times the speaker held
the audience by his skillful enter-
taining power. During the course
of the speech Mr. Baldwin recited the
famous poem entitled, "The Spell of
the Yukon" written by the Canadian
poet, W. Serviss. A group of pictures
he had taken were used to illustrate
the poem and seemed to fit the thought
which the author had in mind when he
wrote it.
Perhaps the most interesting part
of the lecture was when he described'
the ascent up Mt. St. Elias, which was
one of the most difficult climbes neces-
sary to complete the survey. The
party of which Mr. Baldwin was chief,
was composed of two Canadians and
our Americans. The atmospheric con-
ditions forced three of the party to
make their descent, while the remain-
der of the party continued the climb.
All through the lecture Mr. Baldwin
gave especial praise to the pack-
horse, without which he claimed the
survey could never have been com-
The first part of the lecture was de-
voted to Alaska in general, in which,
by means of slides and photographs,
he described the life and customs of
the natives of the north. Then a ser-
ies of pictures followed, illustrating
the various industrial activities. Mr.
Baldwin also said Alaska can be self-
supporting from its soil, but agricu
ture will always be of secondary im-
portance. Mining and the salmon in-
dustry are the main sources of wealth.
"Monuments mark the boundary be-
tween the two nations. They are sep-
arated by a distance of about three
miles and are about three feet high;
on its sides are inscribed, the United
States and Canada."
In conclusion, Mr. Baldwin remark-
ed that these g eat surveying prob-
lems which have been worked out in
a peaceful manner have in reality
protected the United States and that
monuments that mark our boundary
line stand as the sentries of peace."
Fresh Engineers Hold Initial Banquet
Fresh engineers held their first class
dinner at the Michigan Union last
night. George H. Sisler, '15E, acted as
toastmaster for the occasion, and Prof.
J. R. Allen and Prof. J.C. Hildner were
the faculty speakers. A talk was also
given by Harry F. Dake, president of
the class.

has now the right to speak for the
state of Michigan in the Central Group
contest, which will be staged at Ripon
college, Wisconsin, about April 23, and
in which Michigan, Wsconsin, Illinois,
Indiana and Ohio will participate.
Arthur A. Metcalf, of Michigan State
Normal, secured second place, while
Burr M. Berry, of Albion, was given
third. Both of these schools were rep-
resented by enthusiastic supporters
who did not fail to show confidence in
their orators.
"In every age of the world man has
been moved by the desire for con-
quest," said Pinney, ins opening his
address on, "The American Conquest of
the World." "This desire has often
expressed itself in warfare. But there
is a conquest greater than the con-
quest of arms. It is the conquest of
a great idea,-the only conquest which
can ever be permanent. There is an
idea which has developed with the
history of America that shall conquer
the world, and the nations are being
prepared'for its reception by the great
conlict now raging in Europe."
After reviewing the past course of
United States history, Pinney contrast-
ed the opposing theories of, interna-
tionalism and individualism which
seem to exist even today as a heritage
of the formative period of our country.
Then turning to a consideration of the
resent European conflict, Pinney said:
"Let us think clearly on this subject
that our judgment may be sound," he
continued, "If the relations between
peoples are such as to lead nations
into conflict, the world must recon-
struct its ideals. This is America's
opportunity,-to free herself from the
menace of jingoism and extend to the
family of nations those. principles
which keep our states at peace with
one another. To this end let there
be established a United States of the
World in which the nations shall live
side by side in peace. Let the nations
catch the vision of American democra-
cy. To their spirit of national indi-
vidualism let them add the principle of
internationalism. As a result of the
harmonious working of these two forc-
?s, the millions of soldiery will be turn-
ed to peaceful pursuits. The neutrality
of small governments will be respect-
ed. Then all nations will turn from
destruction to construction, and Amer-
ica, instead of following the world,.
may lead the world in the conqpest of
peace and the ideals of democracy."
Having shown the necessity for great
statesmen in this, America's greatest
national crisis, and having urged the
policyof gradual disarmament, Pinney
closed with the following appeal:
"No power on earth can stop the

1915 Dents Felled by Lawyer Squad
Which Ha's Own Way
Throughout .,
Walking over the senior dents with
ease the senior laws last night won
their way into the finals of the inter-
class basketball play, scoring 23 points'
to the dental students' nine. The
second game of the evening's sched-
ule at Waterman gym was a 27 to 20
victory for the soph lits who came
from behind in the second half and de-
feated the fresh engineers.
The dents started out with a handi-
cap failing to strike their stride until
the second half when they added eight
points to the one garnered in the first
period. The laws had everything their
own way from the start, scoring 12
points in the first half and one less
than that in the final division. Gold-
stick and McClellan, the legal for-
wards proved too fast for the dental
guards to handle, the former chalking
up one of the laws' field baskets while
the latter counted five. The lineups
and summaries follow:

the offensive work of Bradbeer and

for the fresh engineers who scored on-

seven at the end of the game. The
