hiller Hurls Good Ball, and Team
Plays Errorless Game; Meet
Swarthmore Today
Ithaca, -N. Y., May 18.-Lundgren's
Wolverines today shook the jinx which
has been hovering over them for most
of the season by defeating Cornell
by a four to two score.
The .diamond mentor made several
changes in the Michigan lineup. Wal-
terhouse was out of the game, his
place at short being taken by Bran-
dell, while Labadie went to center
field and Reem filled in the captain's
position in the left garden.
Miller was on the mound for Michi-
gan, and was invincible throughout
the contest, allowing no extra base
bingles, while he kept the eight singles
gathered off him well scattered.
Michigan first came to life in the
third stanza, when Reem, the new left
fielder, came through with a three
bagger to left field, and was brought
in by Nierhann's single. Again the
promising fly chaser scored in the
fifth, when he drew a base on balls
and was gradually helped around the
bases by wild heaves on the part of
tpe Cornellians. In the sixth division
Michigan chalked upanother score on
two hits, a walk and a wild throw by
Eckley, the Big Red team's short-
stop, Newell doing the scoring.
Cornell's two runs came in the sev-
enth inning during a short and spi-
rited rally. Eckley was hit by a
pitched ball, and Valentine, the next
man up, hit safely. Sauters, following
Valentine, then scored both men with
a single, but Miller retired the side
without further trouble, with the as-
sistance of Brandell, the shortstop ac-
cepting three hard chances and field-
ing each one perfectly.
The Wolverines sewed up the game
in the ninth by adding the fourth run
to their total. Captain Labadie poled
a long double to left field, and Bran-
dell brought him in with. a clean
single. Michigan played errorless ball
during the entire contest, and gathered
10 hits off Sutterby's delivery. The
team left tonight for Swarthmore,
where it plays Friday. Andrus will
probably do mound duty.

LastMinute Nevs
Told in Brief
Easton, Pa., May 1.-Michigan de-
feated Lafayette in the tennis match
here today by a score of 4 to 2. The
Wolverine racquet stars put up an
unusually good game, defeating the
same men who had previously bested
Lehigh, the outfit to whom the Maize
and Blue band lost yesterday.
London, May 18.-Jerry Meier Lynch,
of New York, has been tried and con-
victed of participation in the Irish

sador as to what sentence has been
New York, May 18.-Colnel Roose-
velt left for Detroit this afternoon to

city has gained.
Saratoga, N. Y., May 18.-After bal-
loting for three days without result,

the Baltic by a British craft.
Washington, May 1S.-The German
minister of foreign affairs, Herr von
Jagow, has issued instructions to Am-
bassador von Bernstorff to direct all
German consuls to suppress German
lawlessness. This is taken to be a
-result of the changed German policy.
"Piracy Number" Is Filled With Hot
Shots From Campus Wits t
The "Piracy Number" of the Gar-
goyle appears upon the campus and
at local book stores at noon today.
It is filled with the best efforts of the
campus wits, and unhesitatingly de-
nounces the piratical practices of
some Michigan institutions, which, in1
the opinion of the humorists, shouldc
be made to walk the plank.
,The drawings are clever, the jokes
snappy; and the short story, "For
Good Old Squelcherdunk," a sprightlyi
burlesque on the typical "collich"E
baseball yarn.
In anticipation of increased salesi
due to the presence of numerous visi-
tors in Ann Arbor, the management ofi
the Gargoyle has had an additional
200 copies of the publication printed.-

With Ann Arbor filled with visi-
tors, a throng of eager spectators will
line the banks of the Huron today to
see the annual tug-of-war between the
two under classes at the Wall street
The contest will start promptly at
4:00 o'clock. Captains for the vari-
ous sophomore teams were announced
last night as follows: Heavyweight
tug-of-war, "Bob" Bennett, '18; mid-
dleweight, Wm. Darnell, '18; light-

in front of the Law building at the
same time. At 3:30 o'clock the march
to the river front will begin.
The pull this year will last for 20
minutes.aTennis shoes only will be
used. Each captain will be allowed
two assistants to help him in manag-
ing his "crew."
The soph middle and lightweight and
the fresh heavy teams will pull from
the north side of the rifer, while the
fresh light and middleweight and the
soph heavyweight teams will be on
the opposite bank.
The mass meeting for the sophs last
night drew less than 225 second-year
men. But what the meeting lacked in
numbers, it made up for in noise.

Canvass of Fraternities Draws 550
New Names in Ferry
Field Question.
As a result of yesterday's canvass
of fraternities and clubs for those in
favor of opening Ferry field on Sun-
day afternoons, over 550 names were
added to the number which had pre-
viously been signed at various places
about the campus.
Owing to a regulation which states
that all petitions to come before the
Board of Regents must be filed eight
days previous to their meeting, the
request for Sunday afternoon exercise
cannot appear at the board meeting
which is to be held this morning. Men
interested in the movement will, how-
ever, file the petition with the proper
authorities, in order that it may come
up at the next meeting.
A feeling is prevalent that the work-
ing students have not properly ex-
pressed themselves in this matter.
Many believe that this portion of the
undergraduate body would receive the
greatest benefit if the field were thrown
open on Sundays. Before the next
Regents' meeting an opportunity will
be afforded these students to voice
their sentiment through the medium
of signatures.
Paris, May 18.-Another attempt was
made by the Germans this afternoon
to break through the French line on
the Bois d'Avancourt-Hill 304 front,
on the west bank of the Meuse. The
French trenches were subjected to the
usual violent preparatory bombard-
ment before the German infantry left
the trenches. The moment the attack
was launched the French fire curtain
was thrown out and the mitrailleuses
were brought into action, checking the
Germans before they had reached the
French positions, apparently with

Visitors to the numuer or 9500 are
speaking evidence of the success of
the Engineering Exhibit which had its
opening day yesterday in the Engi-
neering, Chemistry and Natural Sci-
ence buildings. The exhibit was in full
swing in all departments until 10:00
o'clock last night.
From the electric railroad on the
campus which all day long carried a
100 per cent passenger overload of
"kiddies," to the lightning display, the
living pearl, the electric piano and
down to the air-blast joker on the sec-
and floor, comes assurance of the suc-
cess. of the efforts of the engineers.
Starting again at 9:00 o'clock this
morning, the exhibit will continue un-
til noon and then from 1:00 o'clock
until 10:00 o'clock in the evening. The
exhibitions, demonstrations, freaks,
marvels, stunts and features will be
in full operation.
Some of the points of particular
interest in today's exhibit are as fol-
lows: The auto show under the "big
top" includes a Willys-Knight motor,
a Studebaker six and a Studebaker
four and a Reo Fifth; you may send a
wireless message through the air with-
out any charge; the sounding board
made of a shingle will produce the
Victors from a:Victrola; "the man with

Accuses Beakes
of Inconsistency
Democratic Congressman and Regis-
trar Hall Are Objects of Attack
by Prof. Hobbs
Congressman S. W. Beakes, demo-
crat, has been put between two fires
in Ann Arbor recently. On Wednes-
day Professor W. H. Hobbs, president
of the local branch of the National
Security league, published a long com-
munication charging him with being
unfaithful to his constituents by vot-
ing consistently against the prepared-
ness measures advanced by his party.
On the other hand, the Washtenaw
Post, German-American organ of Ann
Arbor, in an article on Thursday de-
clared that Beakes was a rank mili-
tarist, and as such was working for
the pro-ally cause.
Registrar A. G. Hall was censured
by the National Security league local
president for having upheld Beakes,
despite the fact that Dr. Hall was a
former officer of the executive com-
mittee of the local branch of that or-
ganization. George Burke, chairman
of the Democratic county convention
recently held in Ann Arbor, also went
on record as approving the re-election
of Beakes, although he too is a mem-
ber of the league.
Burke declared yesterday that he
joined the National Security league
believing that it was an organization
for the furtherance of the national de-
fenses of the country, with no set-
tled program, and did not realize that
it would in any way affect his politi-
cal views.
Decide to Send George 1). Casto, grad.,
to Cleveland Convention
At a meeting of the Oratorical
board yesterday afternoon the recent
ly elected officers of the association

positions. The following men were
sworn in: H. B. Teegarden, '17, presi-
dent; L. W. Lisle, '17L, vice-president;
W. T. Adams, '17, secretary; A. P.r
Bogue, '18, treawurer.
It was decided at the meeting that
the association would give an enter-
tainment consisting of three one-act
plays on the evening of June 1 or on
some night of the succeeding week.
The names of the plays and the names
of the actors will be given out within
the next few days.
The Oratorical association will send
George D. Casto, grad., as represent-
ative to the interstate prohibition con-
test to be held at Cleveland, Ohio, on
June 28.

Choral Union, Assisted by Werrenrath,
Braslau, Garrison and Holmquist,
Scores Big Success
Never did the University Choral
Union appear to better advantage than
at the second Festival concert in Hill
auditorium last evening, when, con-
ducted by Albert A. Stanley and assist-
ed by four exceptional artists, they
presented Bossi's "Paradise Lost."
The ensemble singing of the chorus
was splendid and the varying changes
of tempo and volume so carefully
worked out by Professor Stanley were
very effective.
Mr. Reinald Werrenrath, baritone,
had the most prominent solo part and
he was equal to the task in every way.
He possesses a beautiful rich baritone
voice of unusual range and his inter-
pretations upon this occasion were
very pleasing. Miss Sophie Braslau
sang the contralto solos, which af-
forded her an excellent opportunity.
to display the range and quality of
her rich contralto voice.
Miss Mabel Garrison, who sang the
soprano solos, possesses a pure lyric
voice of unusual sweetness and
clearness. Her solo numbers, as well
as her duets with Mr. Werrenrath,
were very well received. Mr. Gustaf
Holmquist, bass, had a rather short
part in the program, but sang enough
to show that he has abdeep bass voice
which is exceptional for its resonance
and pleasing quality.
The orchestral background for the
work was beautiful and was particu-
larly well adapted to the text which
it accompanied. Although the work
is modern there are no traces of the
ultra-modern tendencies and the music
was perfectly intelligible throughout.
The use of the organ, played by Mr.
Earl V. Moore, added much to the ef-
fectiveness of the work.
This afternoon at 2:30 o'clock, the
third Festival concert will be given
in Hill auditorium, at which time about
400 school children, assisted by several
will present Pierne's "Children at
Bethlehem." Part two of the pro-
gram will consist of a Mozart Sym-
phony in E, flat by the orchestra.
This evening will mark the first-ap-
pearance of John McCormack in this
city. The tenor, who is the favorite
of threeO continents, will, sing three
arias and a group of songs. The Chi-
cago Symphony Orchestra will pre-
sent the remaining numbers on the

Sergeant arry Furman Wanders Over
Line with Rfle on Shoulder;
Shot by Carranzistas
El Paso, May 18.-Preliminary to
the next move by the United States
in the Mexican /situation, American
consuls from every part of Mexico are
coning to El Paso for a conference.
General Funston and high officials of
the American state department will
probably come here to meet them. Con-
sul-General Philip C. Kenna, of Mon-
terey, will preside over the meeting.
The attitude of the Mexican popula-
lation generally toward the Ameri-
cans, the ability of the Carranza offi-
cials to control the situation, the at-
titude upon the protection of 'Ameri-
cans and other foreign property, all
are to be discussed with the consuls.
It will depend upon the, reports of
the consuls what steps the United
States will take with regard to the
disposition of its forces now in
Mexico. -°
Information came from reliable
sources from the House today that
the Carranza forces are being moved
into the bandit-infested country of
western Chihuahua in such a manner
as to indicate an apparent effort o
put down outlawry, to restore order
and to relieve the American troops of
the necessity of further occupation of
Mexican territory.
Carranzistas Kill American
El Paso, May 18.-Sergeant Harry
Furman, Machine Gun Company, 23rd
Infantry, was shot and killed today
by Carranza troopers just after he had
crossed the international boundary
Sergeant Furman was on duty along
the line with other American patrols.
Over this line Sergeant Furman walked
with his rifle on his shoulder. He
had advanced some 300 feet into Mex-
ico along a small settlement of adobe
houses when the Carranza soldiers
were seen to be firing at him. He did
not reappear from among the Mexican
houses and his comrades reported the
matter to the commanding officer.
An investigation will be made by
United States officers. General Ga-
viera asserts that the American sol-
dier fired upon the Carranza troops
first, and that they returned the fire.
Look for Major Langhorne's Return
Marathon, Texas,'May 18.-Early re-
turn of the Americans now operating
in Mexico after bandits south of here
is looked for, as Major Langhorne's
column is 125 miles below the border
and too far to be supplied with the,
provisions necessary to keep him in
the field much longer.
An official report of the fight be-
tween the Americans and the cap-
tors of Jesse Deemer was received to-
day and it shows that two instead of
six of the bandits were killed and that
two instead of 75 as first reported
were made prisoners.
