MEXIANSANITS
-KILL AMEICAN IN
NEWBR, DER RAID
BELIEVE COMPANY SUGGLED IN-
TO TEXAS ON MURDER AND
ROBBERY TOUR
BODY OF VICTIM MUTILATED
Searching Party Trails Bandits Toward
Border Line; Men Suspected of
Killing Are Strangers
Marathon, Texas, May 20.-Resent-
.ment against the Mexicans in this sec-
tjon of Texas has been intensified by
the details of an affair near Ozona,
northeast of here, in which Mexicans
killed an American, George D. Harp.
As Ozona is almost 200 miles from the
border, the killing cannot be attribut-
ed to raiders from Mexico, such as the
Glenn Springs and Bquillas incidents,
but it established a belief that a num-
ber of bandits from Mexico have been
smuggled into western Texas, and
that they are operating in the ii te-
rior under some sort of a secret pact
for the purpose of robbery and mur-
der.
Details of the killing of Harp are
told by E. J. Ellis, who accompanied
the body to Ozona. Harp left his
ranch house Tuesday morning, about
S:00 o'clock, and three hours later
George Herrell, owner of the ranch,
noticed that something was wrong.
When Harp's body was found, a
searching party was organized. At
midnight the missing ranchman's
horse was found tied in a thicket on
the Claude Hudsetch ranch. From
there the trail was easily followed, and
led toward the Rio Grande.
Where the body was found were evi-
dences' of a terrific struggle. Under
the body was found a .32-calibre pis-
tol. An empty cartridge shell was
found nearby. The footprints near
the body were fresh in the earth. It
is believed they were those of Harp's
two slayers. The body was hardly rec-
nizable, having been badly mutilated.
The two men suspected of killing
Harp were strangers in the Ozona
country. One of them had only been
employed the previous Sunday. He had
formerly been an officer in the Car-
ranza army. He and the other Mexi-
can had been employed to herd the
goats. One of the Mexicans was
trailed by a posse through Zalvers to-
ward the border. The dead man leaves
a wife and daughter.

Strak. Hat Day
Ushers in Spring
All pes and Hues Given First
Outing Yesterday at
Ferry Field
Some say when singing robins come,
that joyous Spring is here, while oth-
ers pin their faith to goats on foaming
kegs of beer. And some say neigh-
bor's lawnmower ushers in the tide,
but it's plain to all observers that
Straw Hat Day is the guide.
Yester noon at Ferry field, the lids,
though sparse and few, were readily
distinguished by their size and shape
and hue. There were panamas and
bangoks and leghorns colored cream,
but ;the ocher-and-green banded cloth
were voted quite the scream.
You could see the fly-specked relic.
of last summer's golden days peeping1
modestly and dimly through '16's
brand new haze. It would take de-
ceased .Pythagoras, that ancient man
of math, to calculate the height of
crowns, the brims' wide-sweeping
swath.
.And the ladies--ah, the ladies! -
who are never left behind, allowed
their grassy chapeaus to flutter in the
wind. Say farewall then to rinter,
and for it shed a tear, for the advent
of the Straw Lid proclaims that Spring
is here.

Four Soloists with University Choral
Union Present Composition
by Saint-Saens
PRESENTATION WELL RECEIVED
Margarete Matzenauer, Pasquale
Amato, Morgan Kingston and Rein-
al d Werrenrath, soloists with the Uni-
versity Choral Union, brought the
twe uty-third May Festival to a grand
climax last night when they presented
Saint-Baens' "Samson and Delilah."
Mme. Matzenauer, who took the part
of Delilah, possesses a rich, full, con-
tralto voice of unusual range and vol-
ume. She sang with. much feeling,
and her song, "My Heart at Thy Dear
Voice" was especially well received.
Pasquale Amato, 'who is a festival
favorite, took the part of the High
Priest and sang in his usual pleas-
ing manner.
Morgan Kingston, who has not been
heard in Ann Arbor until this time,
has a splendid, large, robust tenor
voice of pleasing quality. He entered
into the spirit of his part and sang in
an effective manner.
Reinald Werrenrath took the other
two solo parts, and his singing add-

Mr. F. R.

Coudert to Address Order
of The Cofl

Mr. Frederic R. Coudert, who' will'
give the public annual address of the
Order of the Coif on May 26, on
"Some Current Problems in Interma-
tional Law," is a New York lawyer
who for many years has been recog-
nized as one of the leading interna-
tional lawyers in this country. He
has practiced law in New York city
since 1892, and has had a wide ex-
perience in international litigation.
His scholarly qualities are evidenced
by the degree of Ph. D. which he re-
ceived from Columbia University, and
his capacity as counsel for great busi-
ness enterprises has made him a trus-
tee of the Equitable Trust Co. and di-
rector of many other important finan-
cial institutions of New York. France
has made him a Chevalier of the Le-
gion of Honor.
Recently he has been active in war
litigation as legal representative of
the owners of the liner Appam, which
was brought into Newport News last
February by a German prize crew. On
behalf of the line he is attempting to
obtain control of the Appam through
the United States admiralty court.
The address is open to the public
and will take place in Hill auditorium
at 4:15 P. M..
OPERA BOOK COMMITTEE MEETS

week.
Anyone desiring to write a complete
book, both dialogue and plot, and sub-
mit same to the committee before the
middle of June, will be privileged to
do so.
Those who contributed scenarios
can secure them at the Union desk.

CONTEST DECLARED CLEANEST
A forfeit of the second relay race
which had been won by the second
year men, enabled the freshmen to
take both contests on Ferry field yes-
terday morning before one of the larg-
est crowds that ever witnessed the
spring games. This makes the score
of the spring contests 3-2 in favor of
the freshmen.
The pushball contests resulted in a
clear victory for the yearlings, the
fresh succeeding in making one goal,
whereas the best the sophs could do
was to push the big sphere some dis-
tance into their enemy's territory in
the last quarter, but not far enough to
make a goal, The point for this event
was therefore awarded to the class
of 1919 by Referee Louis C. Relmann,
'16.
Ball Kept on Ground
After several men had been "knock-
ed out" during the first few minutes
of play in the pushball contest, the

Two previous marks were shat

Both Wilson and Carroll ran wo'
