Features of All Descriptions Planned;
Manufacturers' Products Will
Ile Barred
The engineering exhibit for this year
is now an assured fact since the Re-
gents at their last meeting allowed the
exhibit committee a generous appro-
priation for the expenses incurred. The
exhibit, which is a biennial affair, is
under the direct management of the
senior engineers, who are responsible
for its entire conception and develop-
ment. The juniors work in conjunc-
tion with the seniors, and the fresh-
men and sophomores take part on the
General Chairman John F. Clark,
'16E, when interviewed yesterday,
stated that preparation for the exhi-
bit was already well under way and
that all would be in readiness for the
affair on May 17 and 18. He stated
that the exhibit would be more elab-
orate this year than any previous year,
that it would be confined to student
work, and that no manufacturing con-
cern would be allowed to exhibit its
products for advertising purposes.
Freshman, sophomore and junior en-
gineering students who desire to do
work on the committee in the capacity
of guides and exhibitors are requested
to report to Chairman Clark in room
270 of the engineering building. Those
who do this work will be excused
from classes during the exhibit, but
only those who report now will be
thus excused.
An idea of the scope and interest of
the exhibit may be obtained from sore
of the feature exhibits which the sep-
arate departments are to show.
Civil EnIigineering
The sanitary branch of this depart-
ment which deals chiefly with muni-
cipal water supply and sewage puri-
fication will have models of plants
which show both branches of this
work. A model of concrete which
contains a filter bed and settling ba-
sins will demonstrate the purification
of water. A large model of an Imhoff
tank, by which city sewage is purified
will be in operation. Samples of
treated sewage obtained from the uni-
versity experimental station will be
on exhibition.
The structural branch is planning
on showing a six-foot model of a steel
and wood bridge which is being made
in the engineering shops. The high-
way course has many models of dif-
ferent road surfaces about four feet
square. A complete set of road work-
ing tools and equipment will be shown.
Tests of different road materials will
be shown in the testing laboratories.
The hydraulic department is build-
ing a model of a combined irrigation
and power development project. A
large tank will contain the water to
be backed up by a model dam, to be
used on a miniature farm and to de-
velop electric power in a miniature
power house. The power will be used
jto light the project and to run an
electric railway.
Marine, Naval and Aeronautic Exhibit
The marine engineering department
is to exhibit many models of instru-
ments of naval and military warfare
that have been specially obtained for
the occasion from the war department
at Washington. Two models of mod-
ern torpedoes, weighing over a half-
ton each are already in Ann Arbor.
Revolving cannon, coast defense guns,
field batterie, rapid-fire guns, broad-
sides, shells, rifles, cutlasses and car-
bines have beenobtained for the ex-
hibit and will be, shown by a squad
of marines detailed from the service.
Sixteen-foot models of warships wi

be exhibited in the halls of the build-
ing. The marine tank will be in oper-
ation and students will demonstrate
the work which is being done. Several
models of airships will be placed in the
engineering court.-
Meclanical Engineering
In the mechanical department, high
speed turbines, atmospheric steam en-
gines, a bottle from which a liquid

Union D ances to
Ve Held in Gym
Start T'learing Down of Old Dance
Hall; Pond Residence to
Ile Moved
Work on the moving of the Union
dance hall has started, and from now
on all Union parties will be held at
Barbour gymnasium. The last dance
was held at the Union Saturday night,
with aslarge crowd on hand to enjoy
the last dance in the old building.
The regular Saturday night dance will
be held at Barbour gymnasium as well
as all other former Union dances.
No definite action as to the erection
of the new building has been decided
upon, and it is stated that until the
million dollar mark has been reached
real work will not begin. The con-
tract for the new structure has not
been given out as yet.
The Pond residence, next to the old
Union, will also be moved to the
northwest corner of the property
within a few days, thus marking the
departure of one of the oldest build-
ings on State street. It is expected
that the main Union structure will
be torn down shortly before Com-
mencement time.

liH.LEN D1{, '16, IN ClARIGE OF
Tit anioa s Attendants in "The Queen's
Progress" Have Daintiest
Costumes for the participants in
the Shakespearean pageant, "The
Queen's Progress," are almost com-
pleted, according to a statement made
by the chairman of that committee
yesterday. Helen Dow, '16, has vhad
charge of designing the costumes for
the color, flower and moon fairies, for
Night, Titania, queen of the fairies
and for the women taking part in
the peasant dances.
Garb for the principals and for those
appearing in the court dances. have
been executed by Fritz Schoultz of
Chicago, a designer of some reputa-
tion'in the middle west, to whom was
given the work of outfitting those tak-
ing part in the recent pageant held
in Milwaukee. These costumes will
arrive Thursday, and the first com-
plete dress rehearsal is set for Thurs-
day night.
Perhaps the daintiest apparels will
grace the children taking the parts
of Titania's attendants. Little Mar-
garet Hoover, aged 10, as Mustard-
seed, will appear in a dress of tan
colored silk while her diminutive sis-
ter Dorothy, as Peablossom, 'will
wear pink and lavender.dVirginia
Hendrickson as Moth will don a dress
of gray silk under a net of orange. A
dress of white tulle and silver has
been selected for Fern Drittain who
will take the >art of Cobweb.
All portions of the pageant have
been rehearsed a number of times,
and according to Prof. Herbert Alden
Kenyon, who has been acting as su-
pervisor, the effect is pleasing and
rapidly acquiring the finish required
for the first production.
Seats went on sale yesterday at the
box office in Hill auditorium, and
will continue to be sold from 9:00
until 12:00 o'clock, and from 2:00 un-
til 6:00 o'clock daily until May 5.

Hawaiian Students Object to
Adopted by Traveling


Racial pride and objection to an
apparent insult, led Hawaiian students
of the university to complain to the
police last night against "Prince" Pu-
reza Rico, a traveling singer, who
styles himself as "The Celebrated Ha-
waiian Basso," and who sang at the
Bethel African M. E. church last eve-
ning. -
According to the "prince's" adver-
tising posters he is "a great attraction
in the eastern hemisphere, and ac-1
knowledged to be the most gifted and
remarkable basso the world has ever
known," and has, since coming to the
United States, "been electrifying the
public." But the Hawaiian students,
objected to his use of the term "prince"
besides doubting his Hawaiian lin-
eage, and put the county attorney and1
the Ann Arbor police on his trail.
At the Michigan Central railroad
station lie was discovered in trying to
make a rather unprincely "get-away,"
and although arrested, he' escaped in
time to catch an outgoing passenger

Rebels Surrender; About 1000 Takent
-Prisoners; Arms Given Up
to Soldiers
London, May 1.-All the rebels in
Dublin have surrendered, and those in
the country districts are doing like-
wise, according to the official state-
ment this evening.
According to the statement, there
were 1,000 prisoners in Dublin yester-
day, of whom 489 were sent to Eng-
land last night. It is reported from
Queenstown that hopes were enter-
tained that an armistice would be en-
tered into today in the city of Cork.
During the night of April 30-May 1, the
rebels in Aennis Corchy made an offer
to surrender their arms on condition
that the rank and file be allowed to
return to their homes. They were in-
formed that the only terms that could
be considered were unconditional sur-
These terms were accepted by the
rebels at 6:00 o'clock this morning.
It was reported that the rebels were
surrendering today on these terms. A
column composed of soldiers and
Royal Irish constabulary captured
seven prisoners in the neighborhood
of Ferns, County Wexford, today.

Reports Say Scott-Obregon Conference
May Result ii New
Washington, May 1.-Through two
different channels today, the United
States notified General Carranza that
it does not desire at this time to dis-
cuss a withdrawal of American troops
from Mexico.
Secretary of War Baker so advised
General Scott, who is representing
the United States in conferences with
General Obregon on the border.
After the conference with Secretary
Baker and Chancellor Polk, Secretary
Lansing later in the day informed
Eliseo Arredondo, the Mexican am-
bassador designate, in response to a
pressing inquiry from the latter, that
the American government would not
be in position to answer General Car-
ranza's formal request for a with-
drawal of the troops until the con-
clusion of the Scott-Obregon confer-
On high official authority it may be
said that President Wilson has no in-
tention of withdrawing the troops,
however insistent Carranza may prove
to be, until the de facto government
of Mexico has demonstrated in a prac-
tical way its ability to control the sit-
uation in northern Mexico and pre-
vent a repetition of the border out-
Forces Prepared to Resist Attack
On the basis of information obtained
from the same source, the inference is
drawn that if the Carranza authorities
attempt to back up any threats for an
actual attack on the American forces
in Mexico, the administration is pre-
pared to invade Mexico in force and
take such further steps as may be
necessary for the establishment of a
stable government in that country.
That the Carranza government would
have everything to lose and nothing
to gain in the long run by such a de-
velopment is an argument depended
upon in administration circles to per-
suade Obregon to listen to reason and to
consent to discuss with General Scott
plans for co-operation between the
military forces of the two govern-
ments, in the pursuit of Villa and the
final dispersal of his bandit follow-
The communication to General Scott
was sent this afternoon in response
to an inquiry from him for amplif ea-
tion of his instructions. Although the
Americannchief of staff had stated in
his reports to Secretary Baker .that
something like a peremptory demand
for a withdrawal of the American ex-
pedition had been made by General
Obregon, the Mexican minister of war
has indicated a desire for an expres-
sion on this point from the American
government before proceeding further
with the negotiations. That Obregon
should take such a stand is regarded
in official circles here as a natural
step and not necessarily as final.
Although realizing that the Carran-
za government might go so far as to
threaten force to compel the with-
drawal of the expedition, officials who
have handled the situation do not be-
lieve that Carranza is in a position
to make good on such a threat. There-
fore it is declared by men who have
taken an active part in directing the
