"We MIust Adhere to Policy That
Governed This Country for a
Hundred Years" Is Plea


"There never was a time when we
had less reason to be afraid than to-
day," said William Jennings Bryan in
a great pacifist address before four
thousand people in Hill auditorium last
evening. "We must still adhere to the
policythat has governed this country
for a hundred years. If we change
our policy now we admit to the world
that they have been right and we have
been wrong. We confirm them in their
futile folly by imitating them.
"If we had been as well prepared as
some would want us to be, I sincerely
believe we would be in this war today.
Preparedness does not prevent war, it
provokes war. What the world needs
is that the nations be brought together
in the spirit of friendship. The three
great commandments, thou shalt not
covet, thou shalt not steal, thou shalt
not kill, must be applied to national
affairs. We cannot afford to trans-
plant to American soil this European
tree of hatred unless we are willing
to accept its bitter fruits."
In dealing with the causes of the
war, Mr. Bryan emphatically declared,
"The cause of this war is to be found
in a false philosophy, the philosophy
that might makes right, and until we
invoke for nations the moral code that
regulates individual affairs, there is
nothing by which the affairs of nations
can be regulated."
In concluding, he said, "There are
three reasons why this country cannot
afford to enter this war: first, no one
can estimate the cost in money; sec-
ond, no one can tell how much it
would cost us in men; third, we can-
not go into this war and remain a
neutral. Some nation must lift the
world out of war. I crave that privi-
lege for our nation."
Mr. Bryan came here under his own
expenses in the interests of the Y. M.
C. A. work on the battlefields of Eu-
rope. At the close of the lecture the
committee announced that the receipts
would enable them to forward $200.00
to John R. Mott, director of the move-
ment, as Michigan's contribution to the
cause. This sum will represent the
largest contribution of any college or
university in the country.
William G. Frost to Speak on "Our
Contemporary Ancestors" at
Presbyterian Church
William G. Frost, president of Berea
College, Kentucky, will deliver the
Tappan lecture at the Presbyterian
church at 7:30 o'clock this evening.
The subject of his address will be "Our
Contemporary Ancestors."
Dr. Frost is familiarly known as the
"Abraham Lincoln of the South," for
through his broad sympathy with the
mountaineers ofKentucky, and his
educational work at Berea, he has
emancipated a backward people.
At a recent gathering in New York
city, Justice Hughes of the Supreme
Court, in introducing President Frost,
said, "Here is a man who, in develop-
ing young manhood, has placed a na-

On account of the action of the Board
of Regents in not permitting political
speakers to use Hill auditorium, a
resolution was introduced by Paul G.
Eger, '16L, at the regular meeting of
the Webster Debating society on Fri-
day evening, which provides for a for-
mal protest to be sent to that body.
The resolution was adopted by the
Webster society by an overwhelming
majority. It will be presented to the
other campus societies for their appro-
val, and if ratified by them will be
submitted to the Board of Regents as
the combined sentiment of all the so-
cieties in respect to this matter.

The first full dress rehearsal of the
cast and chorus of the 1916 Union
opera, "Tres Rouge" will be held at

Owing to an unexpected delay in the
shipment of costumes from New York,
the dress parade was postponed yes-
"The show is in good shape and
ready any moment for the first per-
formance," said Director Morgan yes-
terday when asked as to his opinion
of the opera. Although Mr. Morgan
has been in Ann Arbor for but four
weeks, he has succeeded in whipping
the entire show into shape almost a
week ahead of time.
The annual dinner for cast, chorus,
committeemen, and old members of
the Mimes will be held at the Union at
7:30 o'clock tonight. Talks will be
given by Director Morgan, Harry
Gault, Theron Weaver and other mem-
bers of the opera committees.

book, the committee has sent to the
Mask and Wig club of the University
of Pennsylvania for further informa-
tion as to the form of scenarios re-
qtuired by them. As soon as the in-
formation arrives the details will be
sent to those who attended the meet-
ing held last week. All those inter-
ested, who did not attend the meeting,
can procure information by communi-
cating with Theron D. Weaver.
Yesterday's ,rehearsal was devotedj

ous songs with the orchestra. A com-
plete list of the opera orchestra has

Michigan's first Go-to-Church Sun-
day will be instituted today when it
is expected that several thousand stu-
dents will attend either the morning
or evening services in one of the local
churches. The movoment, which has
been sponsored by a committee of the
S. C. A. and the student pastors, has
received considerable recognition in
several of the other college centers
of the United States, and it is likely
that an annual student Go-to-Church
Sunday will be appointed for all the
universities and colleges of the United
More than 3,000 letters and several
thousand cards have been sent out
in furtherance of today's movement, in
addition to a campaign of advertising
which has been carried on in the lo-

Special preachers have been secured
for most of the pulpits, and special
ermons will be preached both morning
and evening in all the local churches.

Washington, Mar. 11.-Between 5,000
and 6,000 American troops, under the
personal command of Brigadier-Gen-
eral John J. Pershing, have crossed the
Mexican boundary line in pursuit of
General Villa. Advance information
as to the troops' movements is with-
held under the strictest possible cen-
At a late hour tonight the foreign de-
partment was said to have no official
information that troops had started.
Members of Congress who called at the
war and state departmnts, hwever,
were pointedly ,told that the under-
standing is that the vanguard of the
forces got under way early today.
Funston's Report Thought Ase
A statement in dispatches from San
Antonio, acreediting to Major-General
Frederick H. Funston the report that
the expedition would not lie organized
for two or three days, is believed in
official circles' here to represent an
effort on the officer's part to throw
Villa off his guard.
From private but well-informed quar-
ters information comes tonight that the
American column is being headed by
several battalions of cavalry, which
were moved early this morning from
Hachita to Culbertson's ranch, which
touches the border at the southwest
corner of New Mexico. From this
point a wagon trail leads directly east-
ward to Ascension, Mexico, where Vil-
la's troops were last reported.
Casas Grandes Objective
The objective of the preliminary
force is understood to be in the vicin-
ity of Casas Grandes, where 500 Amer-
ican ranchmen are marooned. Funs-
ton is in supreme command. Having
authorized him last night to put his
troops in motion, the war department
appears satisfied that the first offi-
cial report of the invasion will not be
sent until all danger of the details of
the plans of campaign becoming known
to Villa is past.
According to authoritative informa-
tion obtained tonight, Funston's sole
instructions apparently are to get Vil-
la. How the task is to be accomplished
has been left to the officer himself,
whose position in the army is due to
his success in capturing Aginaldo,
leader of the Phillipine insurrection-
