The Wolverines tallied three times
right in the initial stanza, although
they produced but one clean hit. Two
bases on balls and a fluke single, this
last coming as a contribution from
Caswell, proving sufficient. Michigan

bing off four himself.

Walterhouse continued his sensa-

time that he has accomplished this
achievement in the last two starts.

Writers Of Opera
Jusik Meet Today
Inaugurate Nev 'System in Writing
of Melodies; Scenarios
In order to allot sufficient time to
next year's opera music writers, a
special meeting will be held at the
Union at 5:00 o'clock this afternoon.
With the new system in vogue, it is
believed that better results will be se-
cured, since mo%. of the music in
previous years was written just a few
weeks prior to the show.
This same rule has been applied to
the writing of the book, a large num-
ber of students being already engaged
in the writing of scenarios for next
year's production. Under this regula--
tion the entire show will be completed
by next fall, and work on the produc-
ing of the show will not be halted in
any way. .
Arthur Shupp, '17E, general chair-
man, requests that all those interested
in the music writing attend the meet-
ing this afternoon in order to receive
full instructions. The scenario com-
petition will close on Saturday, May
6, and all contributions must be hand-
ed in to the committee by that time.

UNITED STATES NOT TO DISCUSS
LOSS OF AMERICAN LIFE,
REPLY MAY ARRIVE TOMORROW
Advices Say Berlin Is Conciliatory;
Herr Ton Jagow Attacked by
Washington, May 2.-Unofficial re-
ports have reached here indicating
that a proposal for arbitration may
form a feature of the German reply to
President Wilson's demand for an
abandonment of present methods of
Secretary of State Lansing declined
to " say how the United States would
receive such a proposal. It has been
stated authoritatively that the United
States would not arbitrate on ques-
tions involving American life. But
questions directly connected with loss
of life might be regarded as proper
subjects for further arbitration, it
was explained today. However, Ger-
many must first meet the basic de-
mand of the United States by either
abandoning her submarine campaign
against 'merchantmen, or by bringing
it strictly within the confines of inter-
Secretary Lansing is still without
news from Ambassador Gerard, but is
momentarily expecting a message out-
lining the result of the ambassador's
visit to the German emperor. Nothing
further has come from Berlin concern-
ing the date of Germany's official re-
ply, and the cabinet met today with
no new development to consider. Un-
official reports indicate that the Ger-
man note may reach here Thursday.
The situation presents a slightly
more hopeful aspect today in view
of press dispatches from Berlin indi-
cating that the German note has been
completed and that it was believed in
Berlin to avert the chances of a dip-
lomatic break. Some officials here
are inclined to interpret it as meaning
that Germany will at least temporarily
abandon her present submarine cam-.-
paign against commerce carriers in
the war zone, pending further negotia-
tions on the issue. Other officials,
however, were not so hopeful.
Berlin Said to Be Conciliatory
Amsterdam, via London, May 2. -
Latest advices from Berlin indicate
a certitude of conciliatory reply by
Germany to the American note. Every
newspaper with official ormsemi-official
standing prints editorials preparing
the people for changes, and arguing
the absurdity of Germany involving
herself in a new war by exasperating
the United States. Some official or-
gans even go so far as to suggest that
Foreign Secretary von Jagow be made
The Frankfurter Zeitung denounces
Dr. von Jagow, saying "his weak and
feeble hand cannot steer the ship of
state in storm." Other journals with
official connections point out that Ger-
many's present duty is to defeat Eng-
land's aims, which they claim are to
force the United States into a war with
