Supposedly grave and dignified sen-
iors 'turned out on the campus Thurs-
day evening in somewhat small but,.
considering the condition of the
weather in fairly satisfactory num-
bers, for the first Senior .sing to be
held this year.
That the affair was something of a
success despite the weather was tes-
tified by Clarence N. Johnston, '21E,
president of the senior engineering
class. "It is hardly fair," he said,
"to make a statement as to the suc-
cess or failure of the sing on account
of the conditions of the weather. For
those who turned out, it was a big
success, and as many came as could
be { expected' that night."
Johnston stressed the point, how-
ever, that not all the seniors who at-
fended the affair appeared in caps
and gowns, according to the estab-
lished custom, and urged that at the
next gathering of this kind the wear-
ing of the graduating insignia be ob-
The next Senior sing *ill be held
at 7 'clock Thursday evening inf
front of the Medical building, at
which time a much larger turn-out is
hoped for.

"Whimsies," the anonymous student
literary magazine, will appear in
printed form for the first time with
the next issue which will come out
within a week. The issue will con-
tain about 36 pages of reading mat-
ter, and is to be unique in that it car-
ries no advertising. The page, size,
and general makeup resembles that of
the Yale literary magazine, which has
successfully represented the literary
interests of Yale students for 50 years.
A suficbient number of copies of
"Whimsies" will be printed to insure
its cir9ulation among all students
who arewinterested in the publication.
With the old mimeographed form it
was. impossible to secure copies
enough for general distribution. Cop-
ies of the coming issue \ill be on sale
at Wahr's bookstore.

The Student Advisory committee
met at 9 o'clock yesterday morn-
ing in the office of Dean Joseph
A. Bursley and discussed the
general problem of the Spring
games and hazing, finally decid-
ing to give a hearing to the men
involved in kidnapping and oth-
er acts of misconduct.
The committee will meet again
in the office of the Dean of Stu-
dents at 4 o'clock Monday, at
which time the following s'opho-
mores are expected to appear to
show reason why the committee
should not recommend that they
be put on probation:
Theodore P. Banks, F. C. Cap-
pon, Otto Dollayo, H. C. Dunphy,
R. D. Gibson, Paul G. Goebel,
Theodore J. Gorenflo, V. F. Hil-
lery, J. E. Johns, C. C. Kries, J.

athletes proved too powerful for. the
Michigan representatives in the dual'
meet here' today defeating the visitors"
82 to 53. For the first half of the meet
the Wolverines led, but, taking ad-
vantage of Michigan weakness in the
remaining events the Indians soon
overcame this lead.
Excellent records for a western dual
meet wer'e made by members of both"
teams. It was not a case of Michigan
weakness, except in the distances, but
of Illinois power. Slams were scored
in the mile, two mile and low hurdles
by the Indians. S. S. Wallace ran as
fast race in the low barriers in 25 sec-
onds flat, but the Wolverines were
slightly handicapped in this and the
220 dash by the curved track.'
Indians Get 10 Firsts
Simmons of Michigan and Weiss and
Alberts of Illinois, were high point
scorers with 10 points each from two
firsts. Captain Larry Butler of Mich-
igan counted eight points. Ten out of
the 15 first places were won by the
Indians. Captain Butler, Simmons and
Walker were the Michigan stars with
Alberts, Brede and Weiss the out-
standing Illinois performers. After
taking a first by a foot in a 50 sec-
ond' quarter, Larry came back in the.
half mile and plaped second, two yards
behind Yates who covered the dist-.
ance in 1:58. Walker, the Wolverine'
high jumper, went above all his'previ-
ous records forcing Alberts to go. 6
feet, 3 3-8,inches to wi and himself
doing one inch less. Oborne scored
third with a leap of 6 feet. Walter
Simmons continued his sensational
sprinting by capturing the 100 in '10
flat and the 220 around a curve in 22
2-5, Wetzel placed third in the 100 and
second in the 220.
Alberts Wins Broad Jump '
Besides his great high jumping, Al-.
berts went beyond himself in the
broad jump with 23 feet, 3 1-2 inches
and forced Cruikshank, with 22 feet,
9 inches, to take second.
In the javelin Brede established
what is thought to be an American
collegiate record at 192 feet, 9 inches.
Hoffman went better than ever befpre
with a heave of 176 feet, 11 inches and
Dunne was 11 inches behind him.
With a put of 42 feet, 4 3-8 inches
Weiss defeated Van Orden and Stipe
in the shot.' He also won the discus
with 136 feet 1 1-2 inches. Jacob took
third for Michigan at 119 feet, 9 1-2
inches. In the hammer Stipe did 123
feet, 1 inch but was defeated for first

Varsity Tennis. Team Has
Trouble with Gopher


President Declares Martial Law
Kentucky and West Virginia,
Then Withholds It


(By Associated Press)
Washington, May 14.- A proclama-
tion declaring nartial law throughout
Kentucky and West Vi-rginia because
of the strike warfare was declared
by President Harding late today but
its promulgation was withheld pend-
ing receipt of further information
from. the strike area. After it had
been decided to issue such a procla-
mation the war department received
a message from Governor Morrow of
Kentucky saying that state troops
had been ent into-the strike dis-
trict: It was after receipt of this
message that the administration de-
cided to withhold federal action.

Minnesota's tennis team fell before
the Varsity Saturday morning by the
score of 5 matches to 1. Even with-
out the services of Capt. Walter Wes-
brook, the Maize and Blue net men
took three of the four singles and
won both of the doubles. This is the
second victory of the week for the
tennis team.
All, of the matches were won or
lost in straight sets ekcept for thel
contest between -Munz of Michigan
and Norton of Minnesota. This en-
counter went to three sets with Munz
finally putting it across. The Michi-
gan player won the first set 6-;
through clever net work and place-
ments. Both men were playing care-
fully and many long-' points were
made. The second set went to deuce
after Munz lost a lead of five games
to four. .Here Norton, went into the'
lead but not until the score had gone
to 8-7 did he win the set. By virtue
of excellent volleying and backhand
placements, the Minnesota man right-
fully earned this set.

Eight speakers will compete Mon-
day night in the second extemporane-
ous speaking contest of the year. All
Varsity debaters and orators were

outs. Consequently, the men who{
