(By Associated Press)
London, March 16.-Four hundred
persons are reported to have been kill-
ed and many wounded In a bombard-
ment of Kiel by the German cruiser,
Eckermoerde, says a Central News dis-
patch from Copenhagen.
The message adds that some quar-
ters of the town were destroyed .by
the bombardment. The cruiser is said
-to have directed its fire especially
against the quarters of the workmen
who are opposed to the Kapp govern-
' Berlin' March 16.-Reliable informa-
tion indicates that theKapp govern-
ment is beginning o find its tenure
of office very insecure, although it has
been confirmed that negotiations and
proceedings between the Kapp and
Ebert government have been carried
on. It is said the new governmental of-
ficials are mainly concerned about the
prospect of amnesty.,
It is reported that a large number of
army officers at a meeting in Berlin
today reaffirmed their allegiance to the
old government.
The Imperial Finance ministry has
refused tojturn over 10,000;000 marks
for current expenditures in payment
of troops as demanded by Chancellor
Kapp. President Ebert has notified all
financial departments that the armies
of Kapp's demand for money will be
regarded as treason. Deputy Finance
Minister Moesl has left Berlin.
London, March 16.-The 'position of
the Kapp government is eritical, Field
Marshal Von Hindenburg and former
Minister of Finance Helfericii having
refused to support it, according to a
dispatch to the Exchange Telegram
company from Berlin.
The imperial office for the distribu-
tion of cereals has issued an ultima-
tum demanding the resignation of
Chancellor Kapp within 24 hours, the
dispatch says:
Coblenz, March 16.-The American
army of occupation numbering 18,-
000'men is being issued full field
equipment under orders issued be-
fore- the German revolution. There
have been no movements to reinforce
any positions or any military activi-
ties except those concerned with po-
licing the occupied teritory.

Truth, like murder, will out.,
Elaine Hammerstein, famous by now
both as a movie actress and as a fu-
ture visitor at the J-Hog, will not be
out to Ann Arbor. Why she
is not coming is a long storf with
many ramifications involving several
members of the --- - frater-
Some weeks ago there appeared in
the room of one of the aforemen'tion-
ed members a photograph bearing the
inscription, "To My Old Friend ,
Fondly, Elaine." And on his desk was
a letter, sealed and addressed to Miss
Elaine Hammerstein, New Yrk City-.
It was intended t6 be associated with
the picture and the intention was ev-
idently carried out. One of the
brothers, whose inclinations tended to
both indoor and outdoor sports, "bit."
Desirous of escorting something un-
.usual in the line of femininity to the
Hop, he prevailed upon the possessor
of the photograph to intercede for

MIoving Picture Reproduction of Great
Pageant Will Be Shown in 11111
A uditoriun
-A special moving picture reproduc-
tion of the great pageant of 'The
Wayfarer," presented 'in New York
City at Madison Square ,Garden from
Dec. 15 to Jan. 15, will be given at
7:30 o'clock Sunday evening in Hill
auditorium under the auspices of the
University Christian association. No
admission will be charged.I
This play was written by Dr. James
E. Crowther and has been adapted
from the original by Mr. Lawrence
H. Rich of New York. As a sort o
modern-Pilgrim's Progress, "The Way-
farer" deals with the task of re-con-
struction by the church. The costumes
and staging of this picture are elab-
orate, and have been favorably com-
mented on by motion picture critics.
Portrays Despair
"The Wayfarer"'represents the dis-
couraged element of humanity," states
the program, "and he is guided from
despair to faith and service by Un-i
derstanding, who inteprets the pres-
ence of the living Christ in every
age, triumphant over Doubt and Ad-
versity.' "-
The action of the play is contained
in a prologue and four episodes and
an epilogue, with Walter Hampden,
he noted Shakespearian- actor, taking
the role of the Wayfarer. A village
in Flanders is represented in the
opening scene of the prologue, while
the scenes of the four episodes are
laid in Palastine, depicting the life of
Christ from his birth to his resur-
rection. The epilogue represents "the
portal of the future," through which
the nations of the world throng, and
here the Wayfarer finally sees the vis-
'ion of the future.
Will Sheak After Picture
Brief addresses by Mr. Wilbert B.
Smith, secretary of the Student Volun-
teer movement, and O. O. Stanchfileld,
'07, will be given after the picture.
Lantern slides, depicting the. social
conditions in the different parts of the
world will also be' shown. Congrega-
tional singing will be led by Mr.
Russel Carter of the School of Music.

University Band Cancels Trip
The southern tour of the University
band was called off at a meeting last
night because an insufficient number
of cities would guarantee their ex-.

him with the fair Miss Hammer- {
In the ritual of the fraternity, it is
rumored, there is a clause euphasiz-
ing the duty of brother to brother.,
And brother number one, could not,
therefore, refuse a favor to , brother
number two. Said party of the, first
part addressed a letter to the lady;
sought and in it truthfully explained
the entire case: That it was a prac-
tical joke; that her assistance was nec-
essary to its success; and that, in or-
der to lend reality to the proeed-
ings, she should answer him in terms
of "My Dearest ." The letter
was addressed, stamped, sealed, and
placed where the postman would
get it. -
Enter the two villains.j
Brothers numbers three and four
purloin the letter. Brother number
three sends it to a female friend in
New York with the earnest request
that she assume the role of Miss
Elaine , that is, for all liter-
ary purposes.
--h! That Letter from New York I
A week or so later.
Letter from New York arrives for
'brother number one. As an incor-
poration of all that is sweet, senti-
mental, and supposedly sincere, the
epistle is the ne plus ultra. Brother
number one believes that the fair
lady of the films is actually willing
to attend the Hop. Surely, thinks he,
the inost practical of jokes could not
warrant such an enthusiastic letter of
aceptance. Therefore, it is no joke.
To brother number two, then, is
communicated the gladsome news that
Miss Hammerstein is to accompany
him to the Hop.
(Business off stage: Muh renting
of dress suit, borrowing of .he room-
ie's shirt, collar, tie, shoes, etc.)
And Then the Cold Gray Dawn
The denouement: Brothers three
and four announce the fact that broth-
er number one is to escort Miss Ham-
merstein to the Hop. Much hand-
shaking on the campus following the
publishing of the story. Brothers
three and four are afflicted with an
attack of conscience. Confession.
Brother number two much'disappoint-
ed; endeavors to re-establish diplo-
matic and social relations with the

success must be left to the imagina-

JJemory of St Pat .
Dig down in your war chest or ditty
box and haul forth the good old ver-
;dant green. Fourscore and twenty
years ago, and a whole lot more, the
good Saint Patrick arrived in Ireland
to exterminate the snakey snakes.
Inherent in him was that antagon-
ism for those crawling reptiles that
has to this day stood the strain and
stress of time, and is found in all
lovers of the upside down clays.
Since the passing of the little brown
jug, the 17th loses the real signifi-
cance and tender memories that for-
jnerly attended it, at least in this coun-
try. Ireland, however, has been in a
fair way to celebrating something or
other in the nature of a scrap for the
past several years.
It seems possible that a resort to
the old shillaliah might prove quite
as satisfactory as previously.
Patrick Gives Illustrated Lecture
More than 100 persons attended a

phitheater of the chemistry building
by Prof. Walter A. Patrick of Johns

Freedom of speech as regulated by
the law should be the policy here, in
the opinion of faculty members. This
truth was revealed when several of
the University professors were inter-
viewed concerning their views on the
question yesterday. The following are
typical of the ideas expressed:
Dean Victor C. Vaughan says that
he is in favor of freedom of speech,
and he most emphtically urges it in
1 a university community. The dean
further says that he thinks the aver-
age college student is of high enough
intelligence to appreciate all phases
of political questions and to rightly
value the views of different speak-
Says Discussion Essential
Mr. David H. Fink of the sociology
department said that he believed it
was necessary for all political views
to be freely discussed before and
among the students. He would lim-
it the right of public meetings in the
community, however, to those organ-
izations which are responsible. When
asked how it would be posAible to
discriminate between those political
organizations that are responsible and
those that are not, Mr. Fink said that
responsible organizationsk wre to be
recognized both by the kind of men
who were their leaders and by the
attitude of people toward similar or-
ganizations elsewhere.
Prof. William H. Hobbs of the ge-
ology department is of the opinon that
any radical theories that might be
advanced in public meetings would be
duly considered and that if they were
for any reason undesirable, they would
be suppressed and crushed by their
own weight. He is strongly in favor
of encouraging political discussions
here if conducted by people who are
well informned, with regard to their
Students Are Capable Judges
Prof. Joseph RalstonHayden of the
political sciences department express-
ed himself as believing that all men
were entitled to a fair hearing of the
ideas which they wis to propagate

so long as they stay within The bounds
of the law. He is of the obinion that
there is some good in every move-
ment and that it is well to know what
that good is. He says that he thinks
that the students are capable judges
as to what is right and what is wrong
and that they should not be depriv-
ed of the opportunity of hearing the
most prominent men of the time pre-
sent their views.

All new, members of the Stu-
dent council selected at the
mid-year elections should be at
the meeting Wednesday night in
the Union to be sworn in. It
is held in room 306 at 7:15
o'clock. .
Statement of hours necessary for
various class standings were given
at the meeting of the literary gollege
faculty Monday. Any student with less
than 24 hours is a freshman, and those
who have satisfied the entrance re-
quirments and have more than 24
hours are considered sophomores.
Juniors Need 54 Hours
Juniors must have 54 hours of cred-
it, and seniors are those students who
have 88 hours or 80 hours, providing
that they intend to graduate either in
June or August. Re-classifications
can be made at the end of the first
semester as a sophomore, providing
the student has 30 hours, as a junior
if the student has 60 credit hours, and
as a senior if the student has 94
hours and intends to graduate either
in June or August.
Four professors, C. Bonner, E. C.
Case, L. C. Karpinski, and A. H. Lloyd
were elected to the dean's advisory
committee, which was authorized at
this meeting after the recommendation
given by Dean John R. Effinger at the
last faculty meeting. Dean Effinger
will appoint three other men to serve
on this committee, whose functiou will
be to consider matters of general fac-
ulty policy and submit its recommend-
ations for faculty approval.
Faculty Meets Monthly
The third Monday of each month
was set as a date for literary fac-
ulty meetings. Students, who earn an
A'or B grade in the Summer session
six hour course, in either German or
French will be granted the privelege
of electing German or French 3a and
4a, five hour courses. Medical stu-
dents in particular are affected by
this ruling of the faculty.
