Bill as Passed Grants $2,250,000 a
Year For Period of Two
As the last business of the 1921
regular session and following an all-
night meeting, the Michigan state leg-
islature at 6 o'clock yesterday morn-
jng agreed to appropriate $4,800',000
for the University building program.
The University budget and the ap-
propriations asked for the state norm-
al schools developed into a hot fight
in which the house conference com-
mittee held out against the governor
and the senate finance committee ask-
ing that the amount requested by them
be cut largely. In this the conference
committee was backed by the major-
ity of members of the ways and means
committee, and at 2 o'clock yester-
day morning it was thought that it
would be Jmpossible to reach an agree-
ment. The senate committee, in fact,
left the conference with the announce-
ment that no appropriations would be
granted in this sessio to schools of
higher edcation. -
Gov. Groesbeck Confers
Rep. James D. Jerome, of Detroit,
chairman of the house ways and means
committee, was then called for by
Governor Groesbeck and the situation
explained to him. Mr. Jerome was in-
clineq to side with his committee.
The governor, however, took excep-
tion to hi) feeling that the appropria-.
tions should be decreased. "If we
don't appropriate enough money now,
it will simply mean deficiency bills
next year, and I am not going to stand
for it," he announced decisivley. "The
state has been going in this way long
enough, with deficiency bills piling up
year after year. The legislature'must
give the institutions sufficient funds to
permit them to operate."
House Yields to Senate,
Following the governor's statement
of his opinion, the ways and means
committee was called -together and it
was shortly afterward announced that
the budget demands of the senate
would be fulfilled. It was then ne-'
cessary to draft amendments and pre-
pare the bills for the legislature, all
of which" required more than an hour.
Appropriation for Two Years
The appropriation bill for the Un-
iversity grants $2,250,000 a year for
the two-year period, besides which
$300,000 was turned over for the com-
pletion of the new University hospital.
The money is to come from the new
corporation tax, the amount agreed
upon being only $500,000 less than the
appropriation originally asked by the
state administrative board.
The University appropriation to be
drawn from the tax levy for the next
two years had been fixed by the house
ways and means committee at some-
thing below $34,000,000, and Repre-
sentative Jerome, the chairman, ap-
parently was confident that th total
amounts granted during this session
would not exceed that amount.

The only vote cast against the Uni-
versity budget was cast by Rep. Aaron;
W. Miles, of Big Rapids. He refused
to demand a roll call, but asked, nev-
ertheless, that his vote be recorded as
The members of the senate confer-
ence committee were Charles A. Sink,
of Ann Arbor; Bayard G. Daris, of
Lawton; and Arthur E. Wood, of De-
troit. The representatives from thei
house were Clifford G. Olmstead, Mid-
land; W. D. Byrum, Lester; and Jos-1
eph Watson, Bronson.I
The bill calling for $4,800,000 was1
passed by the house and the senate at
about 4 o'clock Saturday morning.
Senator Sink and Representative
Byrum are the only conference com-
mittee members who are University
graduates, both of them being Mich-
igan men.

A capacity crowd of sopohmores and
a sprinkling of upperclassmen en-
joyed the matinee dance of the '23 lit
class held Saturday afternoon in the
Union ball room. Excellent music, by
"Nobe" Wetherbee's orchestra was one
of the features of the dane, and one
that contributed largely to the sucess
of the occasion.
From the time that the first strains
of the orchestra were heard, the crowd
filled the dancing >hall, the total at-
tendance being nearly 200.
The class just about made expenses
on the tickt sale, according to Virgil
S. Tilly, '23, chairman of the class
dance committee.
Presidents of Graduating Classes An-
inounee Line of March for
Days for seniors to wear caps and
gowns, the proper time for carrying
canes, and dates for the senior sings
were decided upon at yesterdays meet-
ing of the presidents of the graduating
classes. The line of march for the
Swing-out was also annonced.
Caps and gowns are to be worn
every Monday and Thursday after the
Swing-out. These days were decided
upon because it was thought they
would be the most satisfactory, and
the presidents of the senior classes
strongly urge that every senior wear
them on the days designated. The
first official day for seniors to appear
wth canes will be Sunday, May 8, and
after that they may be carried after-
noons and Sundays. They should not
be taken to classes.
The first. All-senior sing will be
held at 7 o'clock in the evening of
Thursday, May 12, on the campus. The
place will be decided upon later.
The line of march for Swin-out will
be from Hill auditorium across the1
street to the campus walk in front of
the Natural Science building and west
of State street, thence down the di-
agonal to the Library, along the other
diagonal to Alumni Memorial hall,
and then east on South University
avenue past the President's home,
turning north to the rear of the Li-
brary, then east to the diagonal and
down the diagonal to the front of the
Library, where each class will have its
group pictures taken at the end of the
The success of this year's plans for
reinstating many of the old-time sen-
ior customs depends entirely upon the
spirit with which the seniors enter
into the activities. Any seniors who
have not yet called for their caps and:
gowns should do so at once.
Action of the Regents in extending!
the scope of the Health service toi
examining all classes of students was
described yesterday by Dr. W. E.i
Forsythe, director, as thoroughly in
accord with the policy of the service.7

It was at their request that the board
took this action, the officers of the
service feeling 'that examination pf
students was a highly important func-
tion of health work.t

Long Hits by Shackleford, Capt. Van
liBoven, and Perrin, Aid the
Michigan Players
Notre Dame, Ind., April 30.-Michi-
gan won a fast overtime game from
Notre Dame here today, 8 to 7. The
Wolverines made five runs in the first
half of the ninth, and won the game
in the tenth,, on hits by Perrin and
Shackleford scoring the former.
Both teams opened the game well,
Michigan making two runs, and the
Catholics one. A cluster of hits off
Liverance and errors by Michigan
contributed to four runs by Notre
Dame in the fifth. Another counter
was added by the Catholics in the sev-
enth, and the home team went into the
ninth with a four run advantage.
With no one out in the ninth Van
Boven, Perrin, and Shackleford were
passed, the Michigan leader scoring
when Karpus singled to center. Dixon
was sent in to bat for Johnson, and
tripled to center field, clearing the
bags. Genebach gave Michigan a one
run lead when his opportune single
counted Dixon. .
Mohardt nearly ruined the Michigan
hopes when he singled to open the
ninth, and scored upon Fitzgerald's
two base drive. One of Michigan's two
double plays ended the inning.
Perrin singled in the first of the
tenth, and scored on Shackleford's
double. Notre Dame got men on bases
in the last half of the inning but ,a
fast double killing closed the game
with Michigan in the lead.
The hitting of Dixon, Perrin, Van
Boven, and Shackleford, and the fast
throwing to bases of 'Vick were the
features of the game. Michigan made
four errors that figured materially in
the score that Notre Dame rolled up.
Michigan made nine hits, and Notre
Dame ten.
Schultz started for Michigan, and
Liverance relieved him in the sixth.
Architets' Plans
For Spring Party
Promise Success1
Springtime in the month of May and
nymphs dancing through architectural
glades will be glimpsed at the annual
May party of the Architectural college

sium. Decorations in blue, green, and
yellow will appear on wals, ceilings,
and corridors, grouped in. architec-
tural style but showing in their bright
colors the gayness of the season.
The grand march, led by Katrina
Schermerhorn, '21, and Frank Andrus,
general chairman of the dance, will
start at 9 o'clock. Music will be pro-
vided by a specially elected 10-piece
orchestra and will continue till 2
o'clock. Supper will be served from
11 to 1 o'clock.

The design of the decorations was.
selected by the faculty from plans sub-
mitted by the whole school, and con-
sists of a row of 16 columns around
the gymnasium, surmounted by arches
and circular medallions, from which
hang vari-colored lanterns. According
to J. C. Goddeyne, '21A, chairman of
the committee on decorations, the1
whole college will work for most of
this week in putting them up.
The dance is open to the whole
campus, a few of the tickets, which,
cost $5, still remaining unsold at the
office of the Architectural college in
the Engineering building. Receipts
can be exchanged there for regular
tickets any time after Monday.
Men who are intending to bring girls
from out of town are asked to send in
their names to E. M. Burns, 1016

Be Ats LETY, '23,1 KILLED
Bertram A. Levy, '23, was fatally
shot at midnight Friday, on West Bos-
ton boulevard, Detroit, dying on the
way to the hospital in the police flyer.
Levy was spending' the week-end
with his parents,- who reside at 1665
Glynn court, and was returning from
the home of a friend, with whom he
had been spending the evening, when
the shooting took place. The shooting
was witnessed by Miss Ida Niemitana,
who told the police that two men in
a touring car drove along' the street
to a short distance from where Levy
was walking. One of the men leaped
from the car, ran up in front of him,
fired a bullet into his chest, and en-
tering the car, drove rapidly away.
His assassins are thought to have
been two amateur holdup men, al-
though a watch, a gold knife, and a
small sum of money were found un-
touched in his pockets. Powder marks
on his clothing show the shot was
fired at close range...
Levy was graduated from' Detroit
Northwestern High School in 1919
with a cum laude diploma. He was
president of the Senate, the North-
western Debating society, a member
of the debating team, and was on the
staff of two Northwestern publica-
tions while in high school.
He was studying in the University
preparatory to entering the Law
school; and since the second semester
had roomed at 624 Tappan' avenue.
"Renaming of the department of
rhetoric by the Board of Regents at
their meeting Friday is merely a rec-
ognition 'of a state of affairs that has
existed for many years,' said Prof.
Fred N. Scott, head of the newly or-
ganized department of rhetoric and
journalism, in an interview yester-
day. "In that time a large number of
students have bee, prepared for news-
paper work. On going into newspaper
offices they have been remarkably suc-
Professor Scot"t pointed out that the
aim has her tofore been to fit a few
students foi leadership in the field
rather than to train the rank and
file. The founding of departments of
journalism at other colleges and uni-
versities makes it desirable that Mich-
igan should now give more prominence
to the newspaper curriculum.
"The change in the name of the de-
partment will have one distinct advan-
tage," said Professor Scott, "in that
the University can become a member
of the assodiation of schools and de-

partments of journalism. From this
important body we have been barred
up to this time because journalism has
not been a department.
"Editors of the state are much in-
terested naturally, in preparation for
newspaper work, but the absence of
any distinct journalism department
has made it difficult for them to ap-
preciate the courses offered here.
Men are sent to other schools where
the work is not essentially different
from that offered in this University,"
concluded Professor Scoott.

Philadelphia, April 30. - Remarka-
ble performances by Western ath-
letes were the outstanding features of
the final day, of the twenty-seventh
annual relay carnival of the Univer-
sity of Pennsylvania, staged on Frank-
lin field here' this afternoon on a
water soaked track and turf. With a
cold chilling wind sweeping the field,
the tall, lithe and powerful performers
from the middle section of the coun-
try won a number of important com-
petitions in impressive fashion.
Of the most important champion-
ships Illinois captured the four mile
event after a pretty race with both
Cornell and Princeton runners, who
faltered under the strain. The Cedar
Rapids high school also entered a
splendid combination relay team in
both the one mile high school cham-
pionship and'the two mile inter-schol-
astic titular run, and raced away with
a double victory.
In the individual contest Weiss of
Illinois won the discus throw, and Os-
borne of Illinois tied with Chamber-
lain of Virginia, Albert of Illinois and
Murphy of Notre Dame in the high
jump at 6 feet 2 3-8 inches and on the
toss for places won prizes in the or-
der named.
Notwithstanding the heavy track,
the Iowa State quartet of half milers
hailing from Ames, which established
a new American record of 7:52 2-5
fortwo miles at the Drake relays at
Des Moines last week, forced Yale to
come within 4-5 of a second of the
old record of 7:53 to win, in what
was the best and most thrilling of all
the events. This contest was in
doubt until the final dash for the
Educational Club to Meet Monday
The Men's Educational club will
meet at 7 o'clock Monday evening in
room 304 of the Union. Prof. William
D. Henderson] director of the Uni-
versity Extension division, will speak
of +$% w%,& +$n 0

The plan, as announced
day's Daily, is to add one

in yester-
class each

year to those regularly examined, the
great amount of clerical work involv-
ed making any great extension impos-
sible at the present time. This year
the sophomore class will be added.
Next year as juniors they will again
be examined and all four classes will
be included the year after. Cards
have been sent out to members of the
sophomore class, giving the exact
time and place of examinations, which
will be started as soon as possble.
The Health service suggested to the
Board of Regents some time ago that
some action be taken to keep a rec-
ord of the physical condition of stu-
dents. In that way alone, says Dr.
Forsythe, can there be any chance of
improving the general health of the
