dispatch from Copenhagen quotes the
statement from German newspapers to
the effect that a Japanese fleet has
arrived in the Mediterranean with a.
number of craft. It is believed that

Gernaans Make Trench Gains
London, Feb. 22.-Two considerable
German gains on the western front
are announced in the official statement
issued today. The first was in Artois,
where the Germans won the first line
French trenches on a front of 800
meters, and continued to the com-
municating trenches behind, gaining
a foothold there.
The French counter attack drove
the Germans from all but a few of
the positions they had seized in the
communicating trenches but the Ger-
mans still hold the first line position.
The German force amounted to seven
battalions and, acording to the-French
report, suffered heavy losses. The at-
tack was received by a very heavy

A crack express train known as the
Connecticut River Special, on the New

minutes late, had stopped for a min-
uto .or more about nine miles east of
here, late this afternoon, when a lo-
cal, running at a high rate of speed,
swel:t around a curve just'back of the
stalled express and crashed into it.
An instant later a freight train, also
bound westward on the scodl or in-
ner west-bound track, struck the
buckled wreck bulging from the out-
side west-bound track.
Among the injured passegers are

Radical Student Magazine, Fdted at

New. York, Feb. 22.-The first num-
ber of "Challenge" and the attitude of
its editors, Columbia and Barnard
students, toward prospective faculty
censorship seemed today to serve well
the title of the new radical intercol-
lege magazine which was organized
to stimulate the free discussion of
opinion among American students.
Chalenge" was out at noon today.
It was difficult to ascertain tonight,
however whether the faculty'of either
Columbia or Barnard College would
disapprove of the magazine and shack-
le it by censorship.

Preparedness for Nation Urged by
Colonel LaGarde in Address
on Founder's Day
Advocating preparedness for the na-
tion, Col. Louis A. LaGarde, U. S. A.,
delivered the Founders' Day address
on "The Dum Dum Myth," in Sarah
Caswell Angell hall last evening. Ste
reopticon views were shown of the
various kinds of guns and of the ef-
fects of various kinds of ammunition
on different parts of the body.
The speaker was introduced by
Peary And Wood
To Speak Tonight
"Preparedness" to Be the Joint Sub-
ject of the Two Representu-
tives of Defense
General Leonard Wood and Rear
Admiral Robert E. Peary will speak
upon the general subject of "Prepared-
ness" in Hill auditorium at 8:00
o'clock this evening.
Both men have entered into a care-
ful study of existing conditions and
appear here to express the result of
their researches, and to advance what
they consider advisable plans for the
United States to follow for national
protection. The lecture is the second
of the free series given under the
auspices of the local Nationaf Secur-
The two speakers will come from
Chicago together this afternoon, but
General Wood will continue to De-
troit, where he is scheduled to pre-
side at a meeting before returning to
Ann Arbor for the evening's speech.
Rear Admiral Peary is endeavoring
to perfect a system of aerial coast
patrol with the use of hydro-aero-
planes operating from stations
spacedat some .regular distances upon
our seaboard. He would form a net-
work of these flying boats on both the
Atlantic and Pacific, which in times
of war could be used as scouts to give
notification via wireless of an ene-
my's approach. and in times of peace
could be used to watch for derelicts.
Weather for Ann Arbor and vicinity:
warmer with southwest winds.

E Ibert S. Bryant, '19, of Sag- .
Inaw, was killed, and ft. Mason
Lumsden, '19, of Virden, ill., was
seriously injured when they were
struck by Michigan Central pas-
senger train Number 2 at the
curve near Barton dam at 3:40
"'elock yesterday afternoon.
Lumsden and Bryant, in company
with Emery T. Jones, '19, were re-
turning from a visit to the woods north
of the city. As they walked along
the tracks a freight,, train headed to-
ward Detroit came around the curve.
The trio stepped to the other track to
avoid it.and insdoing so found them-
selves directly in front of the swiftly
moving passenger train coming from
the opposite direction.
Jones Is Unhurt
Jones, who was not near the rails,
escaped uninjured. Lumsden, how-
ever, was walking near the track and
was struck on the arm and side. Bry-
ant, who was walking on one of
the rails, was carried about a hun-
dred feet and thrown to one side of
The train stopped and the two in-
jured students were put aboard. The.
crew then took them on to the depot.
Shortly after they were taken from the
train Bryant died. . Lumsden was re-
moved to the University hospital where.
an examination showed him to have
sustained a broken arm and internal
injuries. According to reports from
the physicians he will recover.
Both Students Orphans
Bryant, who lived at 531 Thompson,
and cane here from Saginaw, was an
orphan, as is Lumsden. He is sur-
vived by a sister living in Hemlock,
a town near Saginaw, and a brother
at present in Fort Worth, Texas. News
of Bryants death has been telegraphed
to his relations, but as yet no orders
have been received as to the disposi-
tion of his body. He entered the liter-
ary college last fall, with the inten-
tion of specializing in forestry.
Lumsden, who with Jones, roomed at
712 East Catherine, comes from Vir-
den, Ill., and has a brother in Chi-
cago. His guardian has been notified.
"We started out to take a long walk
at about 12:45 o'clock," declared Jones.
"We went into the woods the other
side of Barton dam. Both Bryant and
Lumsden were planning to enter the
forestry department, and were deeply
interested in nature. Bryant had a bag
of different kinds of moss over his
shoulder when the train struck him,
and that was the last thing I saw
when I looked back at the place after
