FrenichiComiter Attack lDrives
mnan s From Positionis They


Paris, May 9.-The crown prince
has lost 10,000 in dead and wounded
since he renewed his drive against
Verdun with a heavy thrust from the
northwest early Friday, French ali-
tary men estimated today.
The Germans suffered the heaviest
losses in frontal attacks on the north-
ern slope of Hill No. 304. After cap-
turing French trenches they were ex-
posed to a terrible fire from French
guns mounted in the summit which
spouted death all Saturday night.
Dawn broke on Sunday over a bloody
hillside and piles of boaies scattered
before the wrecked trenches.
German prisoners confirmed the
belief of French officials that the
present violent attack northwest of
Verdun constitutes the beginning of a
fourth great assault against the fort-
ress. They declare they were ordered
to takethe dominant position on Hill
304 at all cost.
After a violent bombardment of the
French position on Hill 304 the Ger-
mans attempted an advance at 3:00
o'clock this morning, the war office
announces. The attack was repulsed
French counter attacks east of the
Meuse drove the Germans from cer-
tain positions they -lad captured.
These positions consisted of some
parts of trenches northeast of Thia-
mount. An intense bombardment was
conducted by the Germang in the sec-
tors of Eix and Chattllon and be-
tween Douaumont and Vox.

Save All ut Five
Of Cymric s Crely
Quintet Killed by Explosion of Tor-
pedo That Sinks Ship; LT-Boat
Question Is Revived
London, May 9.-With the official
announcement today that the tor-
pedoed White Star Liner Cymric had
gone down at 3:00 o'clock this morn-
ing came the news that five of the
crew of 107 men were killed by the
explosion of the torpedo that sank
the ship. The others were saved.
The sinking of the Cymric and the
publication of the American reply to
Germany's note have revived acutely
the whole submarine question. All
the evening papers today publish
prominently the American reply but
only the Westminster Gazette makes
f comment. It failed to see any con-
cessions on the part of Germany.

C'ap Night, when freshmen fling
their caps into the fire, and be-
come officially sophomores. This
ceremony, however, means noth-
ing unless the caps have been
worn. The wearing of the fresh
cap is a matter of class spirit;
it shows that freshmen stand
together in their willingness to
learn Miclhigan customs; and
the burning of the caps, after
they have been worn in that
spirit, is what gives the symbol-
ism to Cap Night. The fresh
cap is the official badge of fresh-
manhood. Every freshmin

Walterhouse to second position in the
batting order, and Caswell has been
:o' ed btnw; to seoOId( base in the
infield, with Newell stationed at first.
The Varsity hooked up with the All-
Fresh yesterday afternoon for a short
six inning tilt. and they barely nosed
out the yearlings, the final score be-
ing 1 to 0. The Varsity counted cni
Newell's single, Ohhnacher's sacrifice
and Niemann's single. "Billy" Nie-
mann almost contributed another
tally, but he was ruled out at the
plate for failure to touch the rubber
.after he had the throw beaten by sev-
eral feet. "Bill" clouted a long
triple over the center fielder's head
and when the throw to third eluded
the infielders momentarily. Niemann
tried to score, but the arbitrator de-
cided that he didn't touch the plate
and a run was lost.
Niemann's hitting was the bright-
est point in the Varsity attack. The
team hasn't been meeting the ball as
they should, and unless they pick up
by this afternoon, Kalamazoo will
prove a big stumbling block.
Brandell will play center field to-
day, although he is far from being in
good shape. "Bran" turned his an-
k'e sliding to second an ' his speed
will be materially affected in today's
contest, but the center fielder insists
that he will play.
Ohlmacher worked out for the Var-
sity yesterday and the Freshmen only
got two hits, Captain Adams catching
the Varsity infield flat-footed with a
bunt and doubling to center later in
the game. Parks, twirling for the
freshmen, held the Varsity to four
hits and pitched a good game of ball.
WillD eal With All ('ounries South

A new history course of the Latin-
American countries is to be estab-
lished in the Literary college, under
the auspices of the Carnegie Interna-
tional Endowment Conciliation, in the
interests of peace.
This course, which deals with all the
countries south of the Rio Grande, in-
cluding the islands of the West In-
dies, will take up the histories of
these nations together with a study
of their political and social conditions
and their commercial relations with
tile United States. It aims to bring
us into closer relations with the exist-
ing conditions of our neighbors and
our duties toward them.
This branch of the history depart-
ment will be conducted during sum-
mer session by Mr. W. Schurz, in-
structor in the English history de-
partment, who receives a Hudson as-
sistant professorship. The course will
be open to every one excepting mem-

London, May 9.-During the commit-

John Brownlee Lonsdale, whip of the
Irish Nationalist Unionist party, moved
that Ireland should be included in the
operations -of compulsion. The mo-
tion was rejected. Premier Asuith
said that a very large number of the
representatives from Ireland were not
at the moment prepared to accept com-
pulsion in Ireland, and that it was not
desirable that the country should be

A faculty company may be added
to the Officers' Drill corps owing to
the number of queries received by
C. E. Wilson, commander of the corps,
as to whether members of the faculty
were eligible to participate in the mili-
tary training.
This special company will be in-
augurated at the meeting of the corps
to be held this evening at 7:30 o'clock
on Ferry field. It is expected that at
least 175 men will be present in uni-
form to take part in the maneuvers,
and drill in two companies.
About 200 students are now enroll-
ed with the corps. Of the number
which originally signed up prior to
spring vacation only two have with-
drawn, and both based it upon the
fact that they could not be present
on Wednesday nights. Of the total
number enrolled at present, at least
40 have had considerable previous

(Militia From Texas, Arizona and N ew
Mexico Adds 8000 Men
to Forces
Marathon, Texas, May 9.-American
soldiers and posse men have already
avenged the death of the four Ameri-
cans at the hands of Mexican raid-
ers at Glenn Springs.
Just how many Mexicans have been
killed is not known. Two fights have
taken place between Americans and
Mexicans since the raid, one Monday
and another today. Captain Fox of
the Texas Rangers reported here today
to Colonel F. W. Sibley, commander of
-the American expedition into the Big
aend country,.a fight between seven
American, soldiers and three civilian
posse men on the Mexican side of the
river near Boquillas.
"Several Mexicans were killed" was
his laconic statement.
Earlier in, the day another fight be-
tween United States River Guards,
Texas Rangers, and posse men was re-
ported on the Texas side of the line
between Boquillas and San Vicente.
The Americans came upon the Mexi-
cans hiding in the cottonwoods along
the river bank. There were twelve
in the band. The Americans killed
eight of them, the report says,
The entire American expedition is
now either on the river or under way
from lMarathon south in the direction
of the bandit raid. Colonel Sibley re-
mains here to direct the work of his
men which will be done by telegraph
over a line which the signal corps is
stringing from here to Glenn Springs,
only 15 miles north of the border.
Major Langhorne, of the 8th Cavalry,
will be in command at Glenn Springs,
which will be the base of operations
for the scattering parties. The mes-
sage from Captain Fox reporting thee
battle between the Americans and the
Mexicans in Mexico did not say whe-
ther the Americans had returned to
this side of the river or were contin-
uing their hunt in Mexico. It is re-
ported here that the force has been
a'ugmented by the soldiers of Troop A,
14th Cavalry, under Captain Casper
Cole, and that they are penetrating
into Mexico after the bandits.
Colonel Sibley was-offlcially advised
by the Carranza government tonight
in telegrams that 1,000 Carranza troops
had been ordered into the Big Bend
country on the Mexican side of the
toundary by Governor Espinos Mire-
les of the state of Coahuila. The mes-
sage states that since the news that
the bandits who had attacked the
Americans at Boquillas was received
in the state of Coahuila, Governor
Mireles ordered cavalry forces of the
Carranza command to proceed in pur-
ruit of the bandits and to capture or
kill them wherever located.

Plot of R even ge
Stockholm, via London, May 9.-As-
tonbladdett today prints rumors of ar
unsuccessful plot by socialists and

anarchists against the life of King
Sensational rumors are current.
says the newspaper, of a plot by the
young socialistic-anarchist party
against the life of the king of Sweden
in revenge for the recent conviction
of three, socialists, leaders of the anti-
militaristic congress. The attempt on
the king's life was planned to be made
at the horse show, but the conspira-
tors were foiled by the mobilization
of the entire detective force and the
placing of a cordon of detectives'
around the king.

Coming on the heels of the raid by
Mexican outlaws on the American
towns of Glenn Springs, and Boquil-
las, Texas. and in the addition of dis-
turbing news of an impasse in the
negotiations between Major-General
Scott and War Minister Obregon of
Mexico, the President's action made a
,.eep impression here.
General ' Obregon is understood or
reliable authority to have deadlocked
the conference yesterday by a demand
that a time limit be imposed on the
presence of the American troops in
Mexico. General Scott is said-to have

cabinet, to reject tlve proposal and to
reiterate that the United States can-
