Michigan opened her home season
auspiciously yesterday afternoon, Joe

pure, unadulterated whitewash to the
lads from Olivet, his team-mates mean-
while pushing five runners around the
The game was called at the end of
the eighth inning and the visitors were
permitted to hurry down to catch a
train back to the regions whence they
came. Robins was in danger at no
time during the course of the game,
the Wolverines staking him to a three
run lead at the end of the second, and
from this time on it was smooth sail-
ing. Olivet's lone bingle came in the
final stanza, first baseman J ,hnson
poking a clean single into center field.1
Miller did his best to break up a pos-
sible no-hit affair in the previous
frame, but Brandell was equal to thea
situation and he raced across the out-
field and pulled down a wicked smash
in spectacular style.
Captain Labwlie continued his splen-
did hitting. George smashed out clean
singles on his first two appearances
at the plate, and he secured credit for
another on his bounder down the,
third base line in the fifth when it
eluded Hardt. Brandell was much in
evidence in an offensive way, contrib-
uting a single and double as his por-
tion of the day's work. Caswell hitt
safely twice and handled five chances1

Coming at the height of the Lenten

Marie Mayer of the Passion play on
"The Message of Oberammergau," at
8:00 o'clock tonight in University hall
will be particularly appropriate and
interesting. Fraulein Mayer speaks
under the auspices of the Oratorical
Marie Mayer was born in Oberam-
mergau and has participated in the
Passion play three times. Though
it was the ambition of Ftau-
lein Mayer's mother to play the part
of Mary she was never chosen, and
it was with delight that she greeted
the announcement of her daughter's
election in 1910.
It is th custom of the Burgomeister
of Oberammergau and a committee of
19 men to watch the people of Ober-
ammergau year after year as they take
part in small religious dramatic pro-
ductions that are -given from time to
time. From the knowledge thus
gained, they make a secret vote from
five to nine months before the per-
formance of the play for the leading
actors in the play. The result is giv-
en to -the town crier who, according
to tradition, goes about the village
announcing the elected players. It
was in this way that Marie Mayer
learned of her choice for the part of

REEVES GIVES OPINION
ON WILSON'S UTIMATUM
Uphlds(IPresident it Stand t'aken:
With reference to the question of
international law involved in Presi-
dent Wilso:! 's ultimatum to Germany,
Professor J. S. Rewevs, of the political
science departmer t, made the follow-
ing statement laus night:
"First: the positioti of the President
should be supported by every Ameri-
can citizen with unswerving loyalty.
His position in international law was
taken a year ago, and the experience
of the past year makes it impregnable.
"His first position was that sub-
marines could not operate against
commerce and observe the rules of

"The events of the past year have
shown that a submarine is unable to
distinguish between enemy and neu-
tral merchantmen, between armed and
unarmed merchantmen, and finally,
the submarine is unable to remove the
passengers and crew of a merchant-
man to a place of safety before de-
"As submarines have so frequently
demonstrated their unwillingness or
inability to make these vital distinc-
tions, the President rightly condemns
all submarine activity against com-
merce as in violation of the fundament-
al principles of humanity upon which
international law has always rested
and for which the United States since
its beginning as a nation has always
"Things have come to such a pass
that any American who goes upon the
high seas in the neighborhood of the
coast of Europe puts himself in jeop-
ardy whatever be the nationality of
the merchant vessel upon which he
sails. Such a situation is obviously
intolerable and, before this war, never
existed, since the United States was a

far as he knew, there had been only
one case in which a severance of dip-
lomatic relations had not led'to a dec-
laration of war. The single exception
is extant at present between Italy and
That Wilson has taken the correct
stand and "in a very courageous, fine
way," was the opinion of a professor
who wished his name withheld. He
believes that the President has left a
loophole in his ultimatum in which he
could again come to an agreement
with Germany. This loophole is found
in Wilson's wording of the clauses re-
ferring directly to the use of sub-
marines. He added that he was not
at all certain that a break would fol-
low the present crisis.
STAGE DEBATE ON PROHIBIION
Two Thousand People Hear Argument
Decided in Favor of "Drys"
Before a crowd of two thousand
people in Hill auditorium last night,
C. A. Windle, editor of the Iconoclast,
debated Harry G. McCain, secretary of
the Intercollegiate Prohibition asso-
ciation, on the question of prohibition.
The debate, which was left to the de-
cision of the audience, was clearly in
favor of the prohibitionists.

sent Michigan in the State Intercolle-
giate Prohibition contest in Pease au-

Literary Magazine Contains Articles
and Fictlon by ftaculty Men,
Today, for the first time since The
Painted Window suspended publica-
tion three years ago, a Michigan liter-
ary magazine will appear on the cam-
pus, when the Inlander goes on sale
As in the case of the Inlander of
former years, articles both by mem-
bers of the faculty and by students are
given as much space as fiction and
poetry. The articles include "An Ap-
preciation of Dr. Angell," by Prof.
Henry C. Adams, who was most in-
timately associated with Dr. Angell
for over 40 years, and "An Anchor to
Windward," by Professor Fred N.
Scott, telling of the situation which
made the re-establishment of the In-
lander possible. "The Shakespeare
Tercentenary" is an article by Prof.
Louis A. Strauss, and T. Hawley Tap-
ping, '16L, has contributed a student
article which discusses the over-organ-
ization problem at Michigan.
The fiction, which was selected from'
over 25 stories and poems submitted,
consists of a long story by Esther E.
Shaw, grad., a humorous story by Al-
len Shoenfield, '18, timely because of
the Shakespearean atmosphere that
runs through it, annd five short poems,
one of which, entitled "Kin," interprets'
a common experience of all university

such campus affairs as the Opera and
senior memorials, give the magazine

WILSON RECEIVES TELEGRAMS
COMMENDING HIM FOR
URGE CONGRESS TO AVOID WAF
President Will Be Satisfied Only With
Immediate Abandonment of
Washington, April 20.-Secretary of
State Lansing was informed today by
Count von Bernstorff, the German am-
bassador, that an immediate reply by
Germany to the President's demands
was out of the question. It would be
probably ten day or two weeks before
the German government would reply,
Count von Bernstorff said.
Washington, April 20.-With the sev-
erance of diplomatic relations depend-
ent upon Germany's next move, all
eyes in Washington are now turned to-
How will the German government
receive President Wilson's demand
that present. methods of submarine
warfare be immediately abandoned?
Will Germany accept the demand, re-
ject it, or offer to compromise with the
President's stand? These are the ques-
tions that have been uppermost in
the mind_ of Washington today.
The fear that the submarine contro-
versy has reached a stage where it
can not be diplomatically adjusted
gathered strength today. President
Wilson received hundreds of telegrams
commending him for his firm stand
in defense of American rights. Mem-
bers of Congress also were :flooded
with telegrams urging them to avoid
war or anything that might lead to
Nothing short of an immediate aban-
donment of Germany's submarine cam-
paign against merchantmen as it has
been conducted since the beginning of
the war will satisfy the President. it
is stated tonight. According to high
authority, the President means that
submarines must give up every eva-
sion of international law when he says
that "present methods" must be ab-
Both President Wilson and Secre-
tary Lansing regard it as impossible
for a German submarine to fulfill these
requirements and therefore the Presi-
dent is convinced that abandonment
of Germany's submarine warfare
against merchantmen .is imperative.

Council committee which was appoint-
