4 y Associated Press)
Washington, May 27. - Blazing the
way for the first air trail from the
western to the eastern hemisphere,
the United States navy seaplane NC-
4, under Lieu. Commander Albert
Cushing Read, swept into the Harbor
at Lisbon, Portugal, today, the first
airship of any kind to cross the At-
lantic ocean under its own power and
through its natural element.
Taking the air at Ponta del Gada,
Azores at 6:18, Washington time, on the
last leg of the Trans-oceanic portion
of the voyage from Rockaway Beach,
L. I., to Plymouth, England, the NC-4
traversed the 800 miles in nine hours
and 43 minutes, maintaining an aver-
age speed better than 80 knots an
hour. The total elapsed fling time
from Newfoundland to Lisbon was 26
hours and 41 minutes.
Go to England Next
At the first opportunity the big
plane will, continue to Plymouth, 8,775
nautical miles to the north. Possibly
Commander Read' can start tomor-
row. To the navy department it makes
little difference when he completes the
Journey. The great object of all the
efforts lavished on the undertaking-
navigation of a sea plane across the
Atlantic through the air-has been
accomplished. Twentieth century
transportation has .reached a new pin-
nacle, and the United States navy has
led the way.
Naval officials emphasised tht the
long delay at the Azores was due to
the weather and no weakness of the
machine or its daring crew, nor to
any failure of the carefully laid plans
of the department to guide the flyers
to their destination.
Destroyers on Track
The 14 destroyers strung from Pon-
ta- del Gada to Lisbon reported with
machine-like precision today as to the
fligt progress. The plane was never
off its course and there was no mo-
ment when officials in Washington did
not know, to within a few miles, where
it was in the air.
In the next few hundred miles of his
epoch making journey Commander
Read and his crew will be within sight
of the Spanish coast. Skirting the
coast of Cape Finisterre, they will1
head out across the Bay of Biscay to
St. Brest, the most westerly point of
France, thence direct to Plymouth.
Peterhof Taken by Russians '
Washington, May 27. - Capture of
Peterhof, 16 miles west of Petrograd,
on the Gulf of Finland, by the army
of the Northern Russian government,
probably assisted by British naval
forces, was reported to the state de-
partment today in Swedish press re-
ports. The Stockholm Tdegen points
out that the report presages the fall
of Petrograd in the near future.
While expressing the blef that theE
capture of Peterhof may be slightly7
premature the Stockholm paper points3
out that its capture by the Bolshevik
forces means the isolation of Petro-
grad from Kronstadt, from which the
Bolshevik war ships have been operat-
The town of Krasnaja Gorka has}
been reported to be in flames accord-
ing to dispatches printed in Helsing-
fors newspapers which would indicate
preparations for a retreat by the Bol-
sheviki. Reports from other sources
reaching the state department todaye
said that many villages in the vicin-
ity were also burning.
Fugitives arriving from Helsingfors
have reported that machine guns have
been placed on the roofs of houses int
Petrograd, and that hostages have beent
taken In large numbers.,

New York, May 27.-Carl Johnson,
-of Michigan, was among the list of
athletes named to represent the United
States in the inter-Allied games to be
held in France next month.
More than 70 of the most prominent
track and field athletes of the United
States with a sprinkling of boxers,
swimmers, and tennis players were se-
lected to augment the team which will
represent this country next month, ac-
,cording to an announcement given out
here tonight after the meeting of the
amateur athletic union officials.
Several Record Holders
The list includes several world rec-
ord holders, and a number of them
have either A. A. A. U. or intercol-
legiate championships to their credit.
Every section of the country, as well
as the leading colleges, athletic clubs
of the nation, is represente "end the
team is the nearest approach to an
American Olympic squad that has been
sent abroad since the Olympic at
Stockholm in 1912.
Sol Butler to Go
Aimong the outstanding stars are
Sol Butler, the Negro sprinter and
broad jumper, Dubuque college; Joe
Loomis, Chicago Athletic association,
and Robert Simpson, Missouri univer-
sity, hurdlers; Ted Meredith, Penn-
sylvania, and C. Shaw, Columbia, mid-
dle distance runners; Clinton Larsen,
high jumper, Brigham Young univer-
sity; W. T. Tilden, Jr., of Philadelphia,
runner-up in the 1918 national tennis
championship, and Norman Ross,
swimme r,.Chicago university.
Many Big Ten Men
Others in the list from institutions


Eight Michigan track men will leave
this afternoon for Boston, where they
will participate in the Eastern inter-
collegiate track and field meet 'Friday
and Saturday of this week.
This information was given out by
the Athletic association late Tuesday
afternoon. For several days it was
doubtful whether the Maize and Blue
would have any representatives at the
famous classic, due to the fact that
the exp nses incurred on the trip were
consided too high, to warrant the
victories earned at the meet.
Michigan Absent from Penn
Because of the fact that the Wol-
verines failed to enter in the Pennsyl-
vania relays, the Athletic association
decided to permit a team of eight men
to enter in the eastern intercol-
legiates, which will be staged in the
Harvard stadium.
Another factor for the decision in
favor of sending a cinder squad to the
East was the fact that a ruling of the
eastern association stipulates the at-
tendance of athletes representing uni-
versities who are members of the as-
sociation at. least once every three
years. Failure to enter a team for
three years in succession would mean
forfeiture of membership, although
this ruling was declared not to hold



in the Big Ten are Carl Johnson, Uni-
versity of Michigan; Charles Carroll,
University of Illinois; Tom Campbell,
'University of Chicago; Harry McCosh,
University cf Chicago; Edward Mee-
han, Notre Dame; C. J. Stout, Uni-
versity of Chicago; Percy Graham,
University of Chicago; Bud Kimball,
University of Chicago; L. Biersoch,
University of Wisconsin; Frank King,
dotre Dame; V. Johnson, Northwestern
university, and A. Siegel, Illinois Ath-
letic club.
Late Wire liriefs
(By Associated Press)
London, May 27. - The allied and
associated powers have made arrange-
ments to feed Petrograd and render
assistance to the starving population
after the expulsion of the Bolsheviki.
Herbert C. Hoover, head of the allied
relief, has the details in hand. It is
hoped that relief will be in the city
within 36 hours after. the Bolsheviki
Stockholm, May 27.-The sound of
heavy bombardment has been heard
within the last few days in the direc-
tion of Petrograd and Kronstadt ac-
cording to advices from Viborg.. The
advices report a panic among the Bol-
shevik leaders in Petrograd, a number
of whom it is asserted have fled with
state funds.
Paris, May 27.-The Austrian peace
terms with the exception of the mili-
tary, naval, and reparation clauses will
be presented to the Austrian delega-
tion on Friday according to Reuters
Paris, May 27.-The Italian troops
who occupied Sokia. 50 miles south-
east of Symrna, Asia Minor, have re-
embarked on their transports. They
turned over control to Turkish mili-
tary authorities.
Paris, May 27.-British and Ameri-
can marines have been landed at the
British port of Danzig, according to a
dispatch froiu Warsaw. A powerful
fleet, it is added, will be anchored off
the harbor there.

Phil Diamond's Orchestra Takes House
by Storm in "Kean and
Nasty Harmony"
Proving conclusively that an opening
act may be the headliner of an all-
star vaudeville performance, the Var-
sity Band scored the hit of the even-
tng at the Band Bounce, given last
night in Hill auditorium. Michigan
airs, marches, and classical composi-
tiofis were included in the band's pro-
gram, and all were enthusiastically re-
ceived by the audience.
"Banu-Juke" Artist Stars
Vernon S. Foote, '22E, who is new
to campus vaudeville, displayed real
, talent, in "putting over" song hits. A
pleasing voice, real stage presence,
new songs, and clever handling of his
"'band-,uke" combined to make his
turn one meriting the applause it re-
ceived. .
L. P. Guest and Smith, M. E., '20, old
friends to devotees of Michigan vaude-
ville, were billed in an act entitled
"Magical Moments." Practically all
the tricks performed were new, and
involved sleight of hand instead of the
usual amount of apparatus.
Skit On 19x30 College Good
"Michigan in 1930" was the title of
a one act skit, written by H. P. Ben-
nett, '21L. In this comedy was depict-
ed the sad state of affairs toward which
Michigan seems to be tending, and
the ludricous circumstances which
might result in future years. Two
grads, who left Michigan in the "good
old days" (1909) return to find the
boys busily engaged at their knitting
and 'deeply interested in their tea-
pouring. When the "grads" become
reminiscent and talk of Joe's, Larry's
and the Orient, the college youths are
horrified. Thie humor of the skit was
good and there wxas one or two point-
ed shots.
Miss Margaret V. Mann, '22, in "Isn't
It Wonderful?" showed unusual talent
as a whistler. She was called upon
to respond to numerous encores.
Billed as the Six Clown Brothers,
in "Mean and Nasty Harmony," Phil
Diamond's sextette of syncopaters lit-
erally took the house by storm. The
audience simply could not get enough
of their harmony. A saxaphone quar-
tette, accompanied by the piano, was
but one of the hits of the act.
McDonald, '19, Impersonator
Closing the bill was A. D. McDon-
ald, '19, whose impersonations of pro -
fessors and other campus celebrities
is too well known to need comment.
Due to having to leave out some of
his impersonations, he filled in with a
comical version of Barbara Freitsche,,
which proved a "laugh-getter.",
Immel to Go to Iowa Summer School,
Mr. Ray K. Immel of the oratory
department has been added to .thi
staff of Iowa university's summer ses-
sion. Mr. Immel will be the head of
the university's public speaking de-
partment throughout the summer.

during the period of the war. Ac-
cording to the old ruling Michigan
would have to send a squad this year,
as no Maize and Blue track squad has
attended the meet since 1916.
Coach Steve Farrell has selected the
following eight men to make the trip:
Captain Sedgwick, Johnson, Cook,
Losch, Meese, Butler, Smith, . and
Sedgwick Only Two-miler
Captain Sedgwick will be Michigan's
representative in the two-mile run. In
the Michigan-Notre Dame meet held
on May 23 at South Bend, Ind., his
time was faster than that made in the
same event during the different meets
this season. If he continues to nain-
tain the same form, he ought to be
able to place next Saturday afternoon.
earl Johnson, winner of the 1918
Western Conference individual cham-
pionship, will be one of the strongest
performers for the Maize and Blue.
He will enter in the 120-yard high
sticks, the 220-yard low hurdles, the
running broad jump, and the running
high jump. During recent practice pe-
riods on Ferry field Carl has cut down
his time in the high hurdles and is now
able to make the distance in 15 sec-
onds flat. At the present time Coach
Farrell has not decided whether John-
son would be entered in the 100-yard
dash event or not.
Cook and Losch in 100
The century dash will be taken care
of by Cojrg and Losch, two of the
speediest runners on the Michigan
squad this year. Meese, Losch, and
Cook will be the trio entered in the
220-yard affair. These men are excep-
tionally speedy on an ideal track, and
the Wolverine fans are confident that
they will succeed in placing during the
coming meet.
Michigan is sending a majority of
the sprinters on the squad, to the
Eastern classic because of the fact
that the Maize and Blue men have been
reeling off the distance in the sprints
faster than the eastern speedsters.
In the quarter mile run the stiffest
opposition is expected. Butler will be
entered in this event, but will be
pressed hard for the honors by Shea,
of Pittsburgh, who has returned to
school. Shea is not yet up to his old
form. but he has stepped off the 440
In better than 49 seconds, and prom-
ises to do better than that in the com-
ing meet.
Smith to Throw Hammer
Smith, Michigan's star gridiron man,
will be seen in the hammer throw,
event. In all of the field and track
meets this year Pat has been display-
ing wonderful form, and is capable of
heaving the weight for many feef '
Baker is the Maize and Blue's
choice for the shot put. He is in the
pink of condition, and ,has received
many favorable comments on his
throwing by the coach.
No javelin or discus events are in-
cluded in the Eastern intercollegiates
which will prevent the Wolverines
from scoring additional points.
Every year the half mile event is
one of the hardest fought races in the
meet. The Michiganders will not
make a good showing in the 880-yard
run, due to the fact that the East has
a corner on all the brifliant half mil-
ers of the country.
No Predictions Made
Coach Farrell would make no pre-
diction as to the outcome of the meet,
except to say that his men will make
a good showing, and that .the final
results will probably show Michigan
listed among the highest. No other
western track squad will participate
in the meet, according to all Informa-
tion received at the present time. This
will make it a strictly eastern affair.
Points for the winning of the dif-
ferent events this ,week-end will be
5, 4, 3, 2, and 1.- Thirteen events are
booked for the occasion, making a total
of 195 points to be won by the con-
testants. There are 28 teams in the
Eastern association, but there are a
number of the squads who will be
unable to be present.
The team leaves Ann Arbor at 2:45
o'clock today, and arrives in Boston
at 11:55 o'clock Thursday noon. They

will stay at the Copley Square in Bos-
ton, and will return early Sunday.
Trials on Friday
Preliminaries for the dashes and
other events having a large number of
entries will be held on Friday morn-
ing. All of the finals will be staged
at Harvard Stadium Saturday after-
A meeting of all the athletic coaches
who have been training athletes in
schools who are members of the asso-
ciation for at least two years will be
held in Boston one of the week-end'
Dr. George A. May, athletic director
of Waterman gymnasium, will have
charge of the track workouts on Ferry
field during Coach Steve Farrell's ab-
sence. Regular work for the men will
be given on Thursday afternoon on
Ferry field and time trials for the re-
lay men Saturday, afternoon.

Failure of the brakes to hold at the
critical moment when the 4 o'clock
limited interurban from Detroit was
approaching the Lake Shore crossing
between Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti at
about 5:35 o'clock Tuesday evening
resulted in the car leaping over the
derailer and crashing into the bag-
gage car of a passenger train which
was just clearing the crossing.
Injuries which resulted fatally were
sustained by the motorman, F. A.
Cummings, when he leaped from the
vestibule in a desperate effort to save
his life. Witnesses agree that in some
manner his foot became lodged in the
door, and when he at last extricated
it he was pitched headlong into the
passing baggage car, fracturing his
skull and receiving internal injuries.'
In a vain effort to save Cummings'
life the car running second in the- sec-
tion rushed him back to the Ypsilanti
hospital, where he died in a few min-
utes. There were no other injuries
sustained by any of the passengers,
several of whom, badly shaken up, suf-
fered minor bruises.

Night Responsible for Change
of Policy
Resolutions were passed at the
meeting of the Student Council last
night which will probably prevent any
hazing on the campus next year.
The presidents of all sophomore
classes will be required to call meet-
ings. before the end of the year to pass
resolutions expressing regret of the

Dent Course. .ay
Take Five Years
Beginning in the fall of 1921, if
present plans materialize, the College
of Dental Surgery will require 38
hours of preliminary literary college
work. This means that five years will
be needed in which to get a'degree.
This study may either be taken in the
literary college of the University or in
any other college or university whose
hours of credit are interchangeable
with Michigan's.
The plan was proposed by the Den-
tal Faculties association of American
Universities which includes ,Wchigan,
Tufts, Harvard, Pennsylvania, Ohio
State, Illinois, Minnesota, Iowa, Wash-
ington and California. The proposal
was to have been voted on at a meet-
ing of the association May 2 but a
vote was taken by mail Instead. Dean
Marcus L. Ward of the College of Den-
tal Surgery was authorized by the
Board of Regents to vote in favor of
the proposition. The vote was unani-
mously in favor of the plan.
General chemistry, physics, English,
and biology will be four of the pre-
requisite subjects. With these stud-
ies eliminated from the regular dental
curriculum, more time can be devoted
to medical work.
Floyd L. Snyder, transmission and
protection engineer of the Michigan
State Telephone company, will give a
talk at 3:30 o'clock this afternoon at
