Irish Revolt Draws Interest of World;
Sir Roger Casement May Give
Up Life
Much of the world's interest for the
past week has been centered on the
Irish revolt which is being weeded
out by the British troops in Dublin.
Several of the captured Sinn Fein
leaders have been executed, and Sir
Roger Casement seems to be in line
for similar treatment. Fierce local
engagements on the Franco-German
front accompany the sending of the
German note to the United States. The
White Star liner Cymric has been
among the list of torpedo victims for
the past week,
The German note, though not en-
tirely satisfactory to the American
government, seems to have been re-
ceived with some perplexity in govern-
ment circles. Minor details are stillj
causing considerable dissension in the.
State department. While excitement
over the German note has begun to
settle somewhat, however, the trouble
with Mexico has been complicated by
the ordering out of militia of Texas,'
Arizona and New Mexico into the field.
This action followed close upon a cab-1
inet meeting concerned with the de-
mand of General Obregon that the
United States authorities set a time

Furious fighting has been going on
almost continuously about Hill 304
in the Verdun sector. Contradictory
reports come the same hour from both
Paris and Berlin as to the victory
of attacks and counter attacks on that
hill. Action is being anticipated on
the Belgian front, where a large force
of British has been assuming the of-

Late (. 1'. Harkness of Standard Oil
Company Remembers Alma Hater
New York, May 9.--A $500,000 be-
quest to Yale university was contained
in the will of the late Charles W.
Harkness, Standard Oil company di-
rector, which was ad:nitted to probate
here today. Harkness graduated
from Yale in '83 with an A. B. degree
and was afterward a student at Co-
lumbia Law school.
There is no indication in the will
as to the total value of the estate,
though Mr. Harkness generally rated
as a multi-millionaire. The dece-
dent's stock in the Standard Oil com-
pany is bequeathed to his brother, Ed-
ward S. Harkness, making the bene-
ficiary the third largest stockholder in
the Standard Oil company. There
was also also a bequest of $350,000
to the New York Presbyterian hospit-
al and one of $25,000 to the "Lend a
Hand" mission of Cleveland.

That "Cosmopolitan Michigan" is
more than a mere slogan is shown by
a series of statistics compiled by Reg-
istrar A. C. Hall in replying to a ser-
ies sent him by the librarian of the
University of Washington.
According to the report from the
western university, 50 per cent of the
students attending 20 of the leading
universities and colleges situated out-
side great cities, covering a period of
14 years, have come from within a
radius of 50 miles. At the University
of Washington itself, 75 per cent have
come from within that distance.
At Michigan, only 28 per cent come
from that -radius, while 42 per cent
have homes within the 100-mile circle.
The remaining 30 per cent come from
a wide area ranging from neighboring
states, to the students from Japan and
