Hill auditorium will be packed for
the Michigan Union mass meeting to-
morrow night, according to indications.
With a program including such speak-
ers as President-Emeritus James B.
Angell, President Harry B. Hutchins,
I. K. Pond, Henry E. Bodman and
Judge Robert F. Thompson, as well as
musical numbers by Edward J. Mc-

Mr. McNamara, baritone in Schu-
man-Heink's supporting company, ar-
rived in Ann Arbor Sunday. He is the
.guest of P. D. Koontz, '14-'17L, and H.
Beach Carpenter, '14-'17L. His ap-
pearance is consideredone ofthe chief
idrawving cards for tomorrow night's
meeting. 'McNamara sang In Hill ;au-
dito ru last year, when he was study-
ing here. Since leaving Ann Arbor, he
has been en tour most of the time. His
voice is said to possess unusual rich-
ness, and he is rated by some critics
as a great find.
Members of the committee in charge,
of which Selden S. Dickinson, '13-'15L,
is chairman, called at the various fra-
ternity houses last evening, to explain
the object of the meeting. These men
will visit other houses tonight. It is
hoped to make the affair one of gen-
eral university interest, and to induce
.everyman to attend. There will be no
admission charge, and no attempt will
be made to solicit contributions. The
object is to disseminate the Union idea,
and to lay a foundation for the sum-
mer's campaign for the million-dollar
Women and townspeople will be ad-
mitted to the upper balcony only. The

Will Stage "Swing-out Party" at Con-

after 8:00 O'clock
Arrangements have been completed
'for the senior lit "Swingout Party,"
and a number of tickets have already
been reserved. The affair will be
staged at the country club tomorrow
evening, and will be the last senior
party of the year.' No effort is being
made by the social committee to make
the party pay for itself, and but 50
.tickets 'will be sold at $1.00 each,
A special car will leave State and
'ackard streets soon after 8:00 o'clock
to carry the near-graduates to the
dance. Special music for the occasion
has been secured, and the light re-
freshments will be served. Mr. and
Mrs. Allan Mothersill will chaperone
the affair.
Tickets can be secured from Harry
Gault, Chester Lang, Louis Friedman,
Howard Marsh, Rudolph Hoffman and
Jay L. O'Hara. Because of the size of
the dance hall the number to be sold
has been limited. After this noon the
M4ckets remaining will be sold to mem-
,t° of other classes.

McNamara or Davidson Will be Choice
of Coach for Mound Duty
Against N. A. C.
Michigan ought to play something
besides her usual non-comital ball
game tomorrow when Coach Lund-
gren's men meet M. A. C. at Ferry field
at 4:05 o'clock. If, the followers of
the game can take the dope on the
Aggies' game with Syracuse as a cri-
terion of the strength of the Lansing
boys, and if the Varsity is just as good
a team as the Orange nine, as the last
two games indicate, Captain McQueen's
men ought to draw a decision in tomor-
row's fray.
McNamara and Davidson were both
working in the box yesterday after-
noon, and the choice for the man to
oppose M. A. C. probably lies between
these two men. Davidson, who has not
worked since the Western Reserve
game at the opening of the home sea-
son is in need of a day on the mound,
and will probably be sent against the
Lansing contingent.
Yesterday's practice session was
marked by the presence of all regu-
lars, none of whom suffered any re-
verses in Saturday's game, except in
their batting averages. The practice
took the form of a fielding and batting
session followed by a three and one-
half inning game between the first
and second teams of the Varsity squad.
Bill Davidson, pitching for the sec-
ond team allowed 'two hits and one
run. He registered the only hit for
his team. At the end of the session
the score stood one run apiece. The
score by innings and batteries follow:
Innings........1 2 3 4-R H E
First Team.....1.00 0-1 2. 3
Second Team ....0 0 1 *---1 1 3

Describes Terrible Damage Inflicted
by German 42 Centimeter
Horrors of the war in Belgium were
described with minute detail by an
eye witness, Dr. Hendrik Van Loon,
Associated Press correspondent, in his
lecture on, "The Siege of Antwerp,"
yesterday afternoon.
"Antwerp was a well fortified town,"
said he, "until the German 42 centime-
ter guns began firing. Their shells
may be compared to the Twentieth
Century Limited sent hurtling through
the air. When they hit, there is a ter-
rific explosion and a moment later the
spot has become a large pit filled with
great masses of mud; sticks and hu-
man flesh. Within 45 minutes after
the opening of the attack two fortifica-
tions, a number of churches and many
houses were reduced to utter wreck-
"The Belgians fought on for several
days before considering retreat. At
the end of the third day they were too
tired to run away from danger and
many of them were killed by stray bul-
lets while snatching a few hours of
much needed sleep. Above the bridge,
which was the only means of exit from
the town, were some large oil tanks.
The Germans fired these by means of
shells. The burning oil covered the
bridge with such dense smoke that the
enemy could not find its range, hence
it was saved and the retreat made in
good order. This was a very simple
siege, yet 1,400 houses, many churches
and several first class fortresses were
blown to pieces.
"Fighting in the trenches is the most
ghastly part of the war. These ditch-
es are 25 to 50 yards apart. They are
the outposts meant to guard the big
guns from attack. Day after day the
men sit smoking, and fire their rifles.
Because of their position, the most
common trench wounds are to have
the fingers of the left hand, and some-
times the lower jaw blown off. When
charges are made the trenches are

Senior-Junior Law Game Ends in Tie,
and Sophs Defeat Fresh
Two games were finished in the in-
terclass baseball league yesterday af-
ternoon, the soph engineers beating
the yearlings from that college, while
the junior and senior laws fought to a
tie in seven innings. The senior laws
started out in championship form, and
counted six times in the first inning,
but the juniors came back and tied the
score in the seventh, when they tallied
twice. The fresh engineers were no
match for the sophomores, and the
sophs romped away during the last
two innings and won 9 to 4.
The law game proved to be the most
interesting of the two, and it looked
as though the seniors would win eas-
ily thereby making a three cornered
tie, but in the last few rounds the jun-
iors got to the senior twirler for sev-
eral hits thus putting seven runs over
in the last three innings and tieing
the score. The lineup and score fol-

Coach Farrell took advantage of the
ideal weather conditions yesterday to
begin active preparations for the clash
with Syracuse on Saturday, when the
Orangemen will come to Ann Arbor for
the second dual meet of the season
between the two teams.
Many of the varsity athletes and
point winners in Saturday's meet took
a rest or a light workout yesterday,
and freshmen track and field aspirants
were conspicuous on Ferry field. Sim-
ons, who tied for first in the high
jump event in the Varsity meet two
weeks ago, took the bar at five feet
10, inches, bettering his former mark
of five-six.
In commenting upon the Notre
Dame meet, the coach stated that while
the events were won in comparatively
slow time, he did not blame his men,
handicapped as they were by poor
weather conditions.

Machine Is 1912 Model; First Used By
Howard Coffin, Aviator
Towed by an automobile, the model
"B" Wright aeroplane, *hich was re-
cently given to the university aero
society by Russel Alger, of Detroit,
president of the Michigan Aero club,'
and Frederick A. Alger, of Detroit,
will be brought to Ann Arbor from
Detroit next Saturday morning. The
machine probably will be stored in
the building north of the Ann Arbor
Press on Maynard street.
The aeroplane is a 1912 model ma-
chine and was first used in Detroit
by Howard Coffin, the aviator. In
1913 Coffin took the plane east, and in
one of his flights sailed it around the
Statue of Liberty in New York harbor.
Detroit Alumni To Hold Last Luncheon
According to an announcement is-

wood finally winning out. Coons then
took the next two sets, and the match -
in comparatively easy fashion.
Steketee had harder work beating
Epstean than the score would indicate.
Almost every game went to deuce, but
the breaks of the game were with
Steketee and he finally won out.
The summaries: Coons beat Sher-t
wood, 6-8, 6-3, 6-2. Steketee beat
Epstean, 6-1, 6-3.x
From comparative scores and formI
displayed, the finalists of the tourna-
ment should be evenly matched, with
the dope favoring Coons. The latter1
is a fresh medic, who had four yearsc
of experience on the Varsity tennisf
team of Indiana University. He, plays 1
a good 'game 'at the net and is well
able to take care of himself at the
base-line. Sherwood, whom he defeat-
ed, is regarded as a hard man to beat,
as he has had experience on teams in I
the east. Steketee has shown good
form in the tourney and should make
things' interesting for Coons.
