Civil War Veterans Aided by
Distribute Flwers at


"Memorial Day is a memorable day.
It has been celebrated since 1868 un-
der various conditions and circum-
stances, but never has been one like
this, when all hearts are still re-
joicing at the victory which has just
been won," said the Reverend Joseph
Vance of Detroit, who delivered the
principal address of the evening at
the Memorial exercises held at 8
o'clock Thursday evening in Hill audi-
War Ideals Consistent
"The issues for the four great wars
of America have all been the same;
that principally of self-determination
of peoples. This outstanding passion
of Americans has given them triumphs
in the Revolutionary, Civil, Spanish-
American, and present wars. The
readiness to defend liberty character-
ies American spirit and in all of our
wars this trait has always been pres-
ent," he continued.
"The American soldier is the in-
carnation of American spirit and dar-
ing. His onrush to death won the war
earlier than had been expected. His
fearlessness of danger resulted in a
large loss of life, but the saving made
by not prolonging the war, easily made
up for this."
The Reverend Vance then told of
the 'estimation with which the Amer
,Can soldier was held by the allies and
concluded by describing the soldiers'
gay courage and daring.
Few Old Veterans Present
Only a few Civil war veterns were
present at the services, but a large
representation of World War veterans
were in the seats reserved for them.
Twenty-six seats, decorated with flow-
ers and flags, represented the men
from Washtenaw county who made the
supreme sacrifice.
The Friday evening services were
opened with a prayer by the Reverend
Sidney Andrews and were closed by'
the singing of the "Star Spangled
Graves Decorated
Decorating the war' heroes' graves
in the morning, firing a salute in front
of the court house at noon, and hold-!
ing a memorial meeting at the Armory '
in the afternoon, the Ann Arbor post!
of the G. A. R. paidtribute yesterday
to those who have given their lives for
their country. At 11 o'clock parties
made up of Civil War Veterans as-'
slated by boy scouts started for the'
St. Thomas cemetery, the Forest Hill1
cemetery, and the Fairview cemetery
in autos laden with flowers. Slightly
after noon the 47th Co. of the Michi-'
gan State troops commanded by Capt.
Sodt, fired a salute to America's sol-
dier dead.
Local Attorney Speaks
An appeal to everyone to guard the{
American principles that have been
mnade sacred at the cost of so many lives
was the key-note of the message given
by Frank E. Jones, local attorney, the1
speaker of the occasion.
The Alpha Nu and Adelph fresh-p
man debating teams will meet for the
only campus debate of the year at 8x
o'clock this evening in Sarah Caswellt
Angell hall. "Prohibition of European
Immigration," a topic of special in-a
terest at this time, is the subject for

teams are eager to win the lovingt
cup offered by the Delta Sigma Rho8
honorary debating fraternity. TheI

blood, Registrar A. G. Hall, Prof. E.

S'blood, S'blood!
Daily Slaughters
Gargoyle Again
Piling up just 10 more runs than
its erratic opponents. The Daily
swamped the gargoyle baseball team
by a score of 18 to 8 yesterday morn-
ing on Ferry field. To describe the
spectacular flaying with justice would
require a vocabulary worthy of Ringl-
ing's best sideshow ballyhoo-er.
Varsity Diamond Used
The Varsity diamond proved too del-
icate a scene for such fast works at
The Daily exhibited and Phil Bartelme
asked that the place of action be trans-
ferred far away from the bleachers.
Although this request was not very
considerate of the watching crowds,
his request was complied with.
Terrific hitting piled up four Daily
runs in the first inning, and for five
innings Harry Carey's vicious drop
kept the saddened wits from tallying
more than three runs. In the mean-
while, the newspaper men continued
brilliantly, adding to the total.
Gargoyle Pitchers (I) Many
Each side used numerous pitchers,
but for opposite reasons. The Daily
wanted to give all of her men a chance
to show what they could do, while
the gargoyle's box-men were replaced
just as fast as they were knocked out.
Reed Bachman started out but he
found that if he took an inhale with
his windup the smoke from his "Home
Run" got in his eyes when he made
the delivery, so he quit in disgust. Mr.
Everett really did do very well and
held The Daily down for a few inn-
ings. But unable to make the super-
human effort that was necessary to
continue, he finally gave way. to the
Varsity (?) pitcher, Kimball. We won-
der what the Senior Engineer would
have said if he had seen Walt Riess,
the gargoyle manager, being congrat-
ulated by the whole Daily team upon
his choice. Suffice be it to say that
The Daily lineup went around several
times that inning.
Ump Almost Succumbs
Pat Hogan, the umpire, had his
troubles. No wonder he was foaming
at the mouth when he frequently saw
such things as Daily base runners
pushed off first and then tagged, and
infielders performing a sort of "shim-
mie" to hold runners till the ball ar-
rived from the outfield. After a gar-
goyle runner had been tagged by a
Daily baseman and called safe because
the umpire said it was unintentional,
cries of "We want Lovell," rent the air.
The doctor was wise; he kept on the
sidelines. Pat passed out in the sev-
enth from heat, but a hurry call for
water brought him back to earth..
Gargoyle Lineup Elusive
One of the mysteries of the game
was the gargoyle lineup. It was
shifted at will. Some innings, their
three heaviest hitters were the only
ones that batted at all, although one
or two runs may have been scored.
Half one inning, they played in the
field without discovering that they
were minus a rightfielder. Several
Daily players reached first in one inn-
ing while Kimball was quenching his
Steve Aattwood in left field did some
wonderful running and hitting. His
work evoked shouts of "Fat, fat, fat,
Attwood" from The Daily cheerers.
It is rumored that he lost 15 or 20
pounds of weight during the game.
Kimball Accidently Good
Kimball tried to get away from one
of Harry Carey's fast ones and in so
doing, he accdently hit a home run.
Trying to prove that he meant to do
it, the next time up he broke the best

The fielding sensation of the day
was the double play from Carey to
Baxter to Carey. This proved beyond
a doubt what possibilities there are
open in professional ranks for these
men. Carey played an errorless
game until the apeparance of several
sorority damsels. The maids were
noticeably affected by the errors of
their favorite. The Daily team as a
whole showed itself a more finished
and better balanced organization.
As previously remarked, the gar-
goyle lineup was more, or less a mat-
ter of conjecture. The Daily lineup
at the start of the game was as fol-
lows: McManis, c; Carey, p; Landis,
lb; Baxter, 2b; Merz, ss; Schneider,
3b; Attwood, If; Bernstein' cf; At-
kinson, rf.

East Jordan high school won the
state championship of the Michigan
High School Debating League last
night at Sarah Caswell Angell hall.
The successful contestants upheld the
negative against the Durand high
school debaters, on the issue of
whether or not the State of Michigan
should adopt a schedule of minimum
wage for unskilled labor, constitution-
ality waived.
Follows District Meets
The contest was the culmination of
some 70 district meets, and brought
as its reward a handsome silver cup.
The decision, which stood two to one
in favor of the negative, was reached
by Prof. Thomas C. Trueblood, Dean
Edward H. Kraus, and Registrar Ar-
thur G. Hall, who acted as judges.
League in Second Year
Professor Holister in introducing
Prof. W. D. Henderson, who acted as
chairman, praised his work in fos-
tering, through the Extension Depart-
ment, the state debating league which
is now in its second year. The East
Jordan team made up of Conrad
Hughes, Gertrude Hockstad, and Reo
Bockes, and the opposing Durand trio,
which included Baxter Fair, Robert
Chick, and Celma Simonson, hotly con-
tested the argument.

(By Associated Press)
Washington, May 30.---President Wil-
son in an address today at the graves
of American dead in Suresnes ceme-
tery near Paris said the league of na-
tions was the covenant of governments
that the millions who fell in the great
war shall not have died in vain, and
added that he looked for the time' when
every man who now opposed the
league would be just as ashamed of it
as if he now regretted the unionpf the
states after the Civil War.
Old Standards Assert Themselves
Declaring the standard of an older
order are trying to assert themselves
the President said those who sought
to accomplish the return to "an order
of which we are ashamed" must real-
ize that- they cannot succeed because
"the peoples of the world are in the
saddle" and "private councils of
statesmen cannot now, and cannot
hereafter determine the destinies of
After paying tribute to the Ameri-
can dead the ,President declared it
would not profit to eulogize the brave
men who fell in the war unless the
lessons they taught were taken to
heart. The American soldiers he said
did not cross the sea merely to defeat
Germany; they came to defeat forever
the things for which the central pow-
ers stand and to see to it that there
should never be a war like this again.
"For Us to Use Counsel"
"It is for us, particularly, for us
who are civilized," said Mr. Wilson,
"to use our proper weapons of coun-
sel and agreement to see to it that
there never is such a war again. The
nation that would now fling out of
this common concord of council would
betray the human race.
"So it is our duty to take and main-
tain the safeguards which will see to
it that the mothers of America and
the mothers of France and England,
and Italy, and Belgium, and all other
suffering nations, shall never be called
upon for this sacrifice again.
"This can be done. It must be done,
and it will be done."
Wilson to Visit Brussels
Paris, May 30.-President Wilson
sent a message today to King Albert
of Belgium, assuring him of his inten-
tion to visit Brussels within the next
few days.

A bronze drinking fountain, the gift
to the city of Ann Arbor of the late
Francis M. Hamilton, '69, mayor of
Ann Arbor from 1905 to 1907, will be
unveiled at Commencement time. The
fountain is the work of the sculptor,
Albin Polasek.
Gift Is Bequest
Mayor Hamilton, whose gift comes
to the University on the 50th anniver-
sary of his graduation from the liter-
ary college,. is well remembered as a
public spirited official who made the
good of the city his constant con-
cern. At his death in May, 1914, he
left bequests to many good causes, and
remembered both the city and the
University. To the University he
left the sum of $1,000, from which was
established the loan fund called by
his name; and to the city an equal
sum to erect a drinking fountain at
the corner of State street and North
University avenue, on the northwest
corner of the campus.
Result of Careful Effort
The charge has been executed with
devotion and taste by Mayor Hamil-
ton's sons and daughter, who have
added $500 more to the gift, and have
undertaken the installation of the
fountain on a dignified base of gran-
ite. Desiring to have the fountain a
true work of art and not a mere prod-
uct of commercialism, they turned to
Mr. Robert Aitken, the sculptor of
several beautiful works in connection
with the exposition at San Francisco,
who made a first sketch embodying
the general idea which has been car-
ried out: On Mr. Aitken's entering the
army in 1917, however, he turned over
the commission to Mr. Albin Polasek
of Chicago, to whom the final design
and the execution are due.
Mr. Polesek is one of the distin-
guished younger sculptors whose train-
lug was completedat the American
Academy in Rome, to the founding
of which the University of Michigan
contributed, and to which it owes some
six members of its 'staff. Following
an honorable mention at the Paris Sa-
lon of 1913, he has reecived numer-
ous medals and pries in the United
States, and is represented by works in
several of the leading museums.
Rellefs Are Symbolic
The three basins of the fountain are
sunk in the top of a circular drum of
bronze, surrounded by a procession of
figures in relief, representing Youth,
Labor, Poetry, and Philosophy. First
come exuberant boys with cymbals,
trumpets, and pipes, then two grace
ful women bearing water-jars, a
child with a basket of flowers, a young
man with a scroll in hand and a
maiden leaning on his arm, a grave
young shepherd with his sheep, and
finally a youth spreading a scroll of
figures before a sage of noble and
kindly mien.
Above the top is the inscription,
"Presented to the City of Ann Arbor
by Francis M. Hamilton, Mayor 1905-
1907, University of Michigan Class of
1869." The sculptor writes, "It was
my aim to make something dignified,
with a touch of youthful delight," and
the fresh young faces, with their touch
of seriousness, admirably bear out his
Intention. No banal interpretation of
details is necessary for the enjoyment
of the work, which makes its, appeal
directly by its embodiment of the
spirit of owrk and play, and by the
rhythmical sweep of figures and drap-
Watch Bulletins
