Norfolk, Va., Jan. 16.-Billy Sunday
preached John Barleycorn's funeral'
service today before an audience of
more than 10,000 persons who attend-
ed the mock'obsequies.
The ceremony began at the railroad
station where the "corpse" in a casket
20 feet long arrived in a special train
from Milwaukee. Twenty pall bear-
ors placed the casket on a carriage
and marched beside it, through the
streets to Sunday's tabernacle while
"his Satanic majesty" trailed behind
in deep mourning and anguish.
At the tabernacle door Sunday met
the "corpse" with a delighted grin
and led the way to its resting place
while he preached the sermon. The
devil wearing a mask and simulating
a state of deep dejeion sat with the
party. of mourners.

"Good bye, John," said the evangel-
ist, at the conclusion of his sermon.

were hell's best friend. I hate you

a natural death here, last night at

Michigan's basketball team over-
whelmed the Western Reserve quintet
33 to 13 in a one-sided contest last
night. The visitors never had a
chance after the first two minutes of
play, and even the second half when
the Wolverine team was entirely made
up of substitutes the Cleveland five
was unable to do any scoring from
the field.
Henderson and Dunne were the
bright stars for the Varsity with Rea
close behind. Bill and Duke were
the big scorers of the contest, each
being responsible for 12 counters.
Goul Shooting Improves
The .shooting of all three of these
men was much better than they halve'
shown at any previous time on the
home floor. Henderson made one phe-
nomenal shot from the sideline and
Dunne caged several on fine passes
from Rea close under the basket.
The Michigan five man defense was
altogether too much for the visiting
team. At no time during the first
half was a Reserve man allowed to
get within ordinary shooting distance.
Hanes, the little Reserve forward, was
the best of the opposing quintet. He
was in the thick of the battle at all
times and followed the ball closely.

Today marks the close of the con-
ference of the State Council of Physi-
cal Education. The conference was
called to formulate a uniform system
of physical education for the schools
of the state. C. L. Brewer of the
Michigan Agricultural school empha-
sized the need of such training in the
rural districts yesterday in his ad-
dress, "Need of Physical Training in
the Rural Schools."
According to Director Rowe the
most important meeting of the con-
ference comes this morning when a
standard physical efficiency test will
be devised for the schools over the
state. -'Through this physical effi-
'ciency test all students of the-state
will be classified in a physical way,
and through the use of it officials hope
to raise the standard of physical edu-
cation throughout the state. Promi-
nent speakers today include Miss
Ethel Perrin and N. H. Pearl of De-
troit. Officials state that these speak-
erse are among the formulators of
the plan of physical efficiency tests
and from them hope to gain much in-
formation on the subject.
