Expect Concerted Protests iron Cam-

Rumors to the effect that a recent
faculty ruling terminating the B. V. D.
dance tonight at 2:00 o'clock would
be disregarded by the members of the
three societies were put to rest yest-
terday afternoon. A story appearing
in a Detroit paper yesterday afternoon
stating that a faculty-student contro-

being taken by the various faculties,
was also proven inaccurate by this
A committee composed of Renville
Wheat, '16L, Herbert Barthof, '16E,
and E. P. Wright, '16, representing
respectively Barristers, Vulcans and
Druids, decided to co-operate with the
university authorities in ending the
dance at the stated time, after a con-

several colleges, and Chairman L. A.

Despite this settlement of the dis-
pgte: there was much dissatisfaction
last night among the members of the
three societies regarding the action
taken by their representatives, and
it seems likely that a protest against
such rulings will be made by these
organizations, with the moral support
of several other campus societies,
which will probably be similarly af-'

Arrange for Overflow from Union at
Packard; Tickets Go on
Sale Today
Beginning Saturday night "univer-
sity dances" will be given under the
auspices of the Student Council in
Packard academy every week to care
for all stuients who cannot obtain
tickets to the weekly Union affairs.
Tickets for the first dance will go
on sale in the main corridor of Univer-
sity hall this morning from 10:00 to
12:00 o'clock and from 12:45 until
2:15 o'clock at the price of 50 cents.
The movement has the hearty endorse-
ment of Dean Myra B. Jordan and
Professor L. A. Strauss.
The Council decided to hold this sc-
ries of dances after a committee had
reported that there was a desire for.
a series of such events upon the cam-
pus. The committee in charge of Sat-
day night's affair is: A. S. Hart, '17,
H. A. Taylor, '17E, and W. L. Rindge,
16A. Chaperones will be announced
later. Attendance is strictly restricted
to students.
Another committee which reported
at the special meeting of the Student
Council held last evening was that
appointed to consider means for safe-'
guarding the Huron river. In accord-
ance with the principle upon which the
council proceeds, the charge of this
matter was referred to the recently
organized Michigan Boat club as the
organization best fitted to carry it out.
The committee which is to continue

the work is: Commodore R. W. Collins,
'17E, H. G. Muzzy, '17, W. T. Adams,
'17, and G. A. Scheibel, '17E.
- The council will soon call a meet-
ing of the various class presidents and
the memebrs of the various memorial
committees, to consider the matter of
systematizing the method of present-
ing class memorials to the university.

Did you ever try to sell a Michigan
undergraduate a life membership to
the Michigan Union, and after com-
pleting your well-rehearsed little
speech find that you had failed to
rouse the least of the spirit that we
(theoretically) believe is in everyone
on the campus? And after an even-]
ing full of such experiences did you
ever wend your way home from the
other side of Ann Arbor with all hope
of ever geting in on that trip to Chi-
cago that some lucky duuk has all
stowed away now, and a repeated
curse on your lips about the general
rottenness of Michigan spirit?
If you happen to be one of those
who have felt thus (and there are
many of the kind) take heart! Theret

Is Enthusiastic
over Union Opera
Weaver, General Cliairman, Believes,
Interest Greater Than Ever a
Shown Before
If enthusiasm makes for anything,
this year's Union opera, "Tres Rouge,"
should occupy a position above all
previous productions. Theron D.
Weaver, '16E, general chairman, in an
interview last night stated, "I amt
wildly enthusiastic over the show this
year, and never have I seen such a
keen interes+ shown in a production
of this k :r. Director Morgan does

From reports, the weight of this year's
scenery is at least twice that used lastj
year. The scenic effects are the work
of two young artists from Europe,
who have been in this country but aE
short time. "They have put their soul
into the work," stated Weaver, "and
are endeavoring to make their mark
with it."

Denby Says Orientals Are Like Amer-

"The Chinese people do not hold us
to be strange as we do them," was
thb statement of the Hon. Charles
Denby in his stereopticon lecture on
"China and the Chinese Lpnguage" in
the auditorium of the new Science
building last night.
Mr. Denby, who spent 14 years in
the consular service in China and is an
authority on that country, made a
plea that we recognize that the Chinese
people are like us in fundamental
characteristics, having the same sen-
timents, virtues and vices.
In his lecture he first told of the
present emperor Yuan Shi Kai, with
whom he was formerly intimately ac-
quainted. Yuan, who was in 1880 un-
known and unlettered, has become the
most powerful man in all China.
The latter part of Mr. Denby's lec-
ture was devoted to a discussion of the
Chinese language and ethics.

o'clock tonight the war department
made public this telegram from
General Finston: "Fort Sam

Colonel Slocum say 46 Mexicans
soldiers were killed, seven serious-

seven killed, two officers and five

Washington, Mar. 9.--Secretary of
State Lansing served notice tonight on
General Carranza that- American forces
have been sent into Mexico for the pur-
pose of crushing General Francisco
Villa. This action was taken follow-
ing the receipt of full reports of the at-
tack by Villista troops on the town of
Columbus, New Mexico, with'the re-
sultant killing of seven American sol-
diers and the wounding of two officers
and five men.
Five troops of American cavalry are
now on Mexican soil engaged in battle
with between 500 and 1,000 Mexicans
headed by Villa himself. Reports reach-
ing the war department describe the
encounter as desperate. Re-enforce-
ments are being rushed to the scene

It is impossible to get any expres-

plied in the official disclosures from
the state _n"tment as to the steps.

The regnlar sel- .vec .ly cabinet meet-

said tonight that the cabinet would
consider the Mexican problem from
every angle at tomorrow's meeting.
Columbus, Ne.w Mexico, Mar. 3.-
Francisco Villa, outlawed Mexican
bandit, raided United States territory
today. With 500 men he attacked Co-
lumbus, killed at least 17 Americans
and fired many buildings before he
was driven back across the interna-
tional border. At least 250 troopers
of the 13th United States cavalry fol-
lowed the Villa band into Mexico. The
report of Colonel H. J. Slocum late
today stated that Villa had made a stand
five miles south of the border where
spirited fighting ensued.
Francisco Villa is reported to have
been badly wounded in a running fight
with the United States troopers. One
report was that 100 of the raiders were
killed in the fight which occurred in,
a deep ravine. The report of the
wounding of Villa is circumstantially
confirmed by one of the Mexican ban-
dits who was taken prisoner. He said
he was riding close to Villa when the
bandit leader was shot, and that Villa
nearly fell out of the saddle but was
supported by his men and aided in
making his escape.
Major Tompkins and his men fol-
lowed the- retreating Villistas west
and across the border line. They had
three running fights with the main
body of the bandits. In one of these

engagements, Corporal Wiswall was
shot through the right eye and killed
almost instantly. The bandits suf-
fered heavily from the American fire.
Finally, after Major Tompkins had
followed the Villa band five miles into
Mexico, harrassin'g them continuously,
the bandit commander came to a'stand
with his entire force resisting the ad-
vance of the American cavalry. Tomp-
kins returnled here.

Organization Names Officers for Year
at Meeting Yesterday
The Comedy club elected the follow-
ing officers at its meeting yesterday
afternoon: President, M. C. Wood, '17;
vice-president, Inez Gose, '17; secre-
tary and treasurer, C. E. Fordney,
'15E; manager, E. A. Bartelme, '17E,
director, E. A. Sachs, '17.
Besides the election of officers, the
club discussed plans for the remain-
der of the year. Some correspondence
has been carried on with a Chicago
film company with a view to possibly
staging a moving picture to be shown
here sometime in the spring. It would
undoubtedly be a college comedy and
all the parts would be taken by mem-
bers of the club. If this plan is car-
ried out as anticipated, it will be the
first attempt ever made by a campus
organization to put on anything of
the kind.
