Class Ranks As
Lanterns Swing
(By Virginia Tryon)
' Passing on their lanterns to the
girls of the junior class, the senirs,
in their caps an gowns, singing the
Lantern night song, last evening gave
over their responsibilities fo the mem-
bers of the class which follows,them
in the annual ceremony which mark-
ed the progression of all classes.
The event, held at Palmer field was
Impre' sive and beautiful. The block
"M" formed by a double line of sen-
iors in front and juniors behind them
was outlined by swinging lanterns of
all colors. The procession, which was
led by the seniors, was composed of
girls of all classes in order of pre-
cedence. The junior girls held gayly
flowered and decorated hoops through
which the seniors passed, then handed
these hoops to the sophomores, who in
turn held them while the freshmen
passed through. After all classes were
in their places, the seniors and jun-
iors in the "M," and the freshmen
and sophomores in the rear, the class
songs were sung, and finally the sen-
iors gave their lanterns to the juniors
whilesinging the Lantern night song,
at the same time changing places with
them in the line. The ceremony was
concluded by the singing of "The Yel-
low and Blue."
The eveing's program was begun
with a May-pole dance, and two in-
terpretive dances by the members of
the dancing classes. Following the
dances, Helen Bishop, president of
the Women's Athletic association,
awarded athletic honors to the girls
winning athletic honor points.
The field events which began at 5
o'clock In the afternoon resulted in
a victory for the freshmen, who won
a total of 40 points in the various
events. The championship baseball
game between the sophomores and
juniors was won by the sophomores,
by a score of 7 to 2. In tennis, the
juniors won two out of three matches,
'and in both horseshoe pitching and
archery the freshmen won the highest
scores. The archery tournament went

to the freshmen by a single point.

A bitter campaign of several months
for popularity honors in the senior
literary, class culmingted y~sterday
afternoon in a heated meeting, which
was the scene of the shrewdest moves
on the Michigan campus in years.
Managers of the almost defunct Re-
publican machine had scouts present
to pick out young blood with which
to rebuild their once-powerful organ-
Machines in Evidence
The elections were controlled on the
whole by the Senior Machine, led by
James G. Frey, and the Opposition
group, captained by C. Maurice Atkin-
son. Immediately after the meeting
broke up, charges of graft, corruption,
and choking the ballot box were rife,
but President Walter B. Rea asserted
that the election was as fair as it
could be considering everythin.
First blood was drawn by the Oppo-


S. Absence from Reparations Com-
mittee Reduces Machinery

(By Associated Press). +
London, May 31.-Premier Lloyd1
George, outlining the reparations sit-.
uation in the house of commons today,
defended the treaty of Versailles and.
stated that all he asked was that his
critics state facts fairly.+
He said there was no doubt that
one fact that worked against the prop-'
er balance of the reparations commis-
sion, as well as of the League of Na-
tions-the attitude of America.
America was the only country with-
out claims for reparations, he said,
and she was not affected by the repar-
ations settlement. Therefore, the Un-
ited States was strictly impartial with
friendly Germany, friendly with
France, friendly with Italy and Great
Britain, and also was concerned with
international trade. Therefore., he de-
clared, America was concerned with
seeing that reparations were not driv-
en to the extreme of upsetting the bal-
ance of world trade.
' "No doubt the absence of America
from the machinery of the treaty of
Versailles," he 'said disturbed its equi-
poise, has made the machine less ef-
fective and made it prork with less
precision; but it has 'created friction
which would not have existed if Am-
erica had been present in the league
or on the reparations commission.
The Athletic Review will appear on
the campus for public sale again this
morning. Previous sales taking place
at the Wisconsin baseball game, dis-
posed of over 600 of the 2000 copies
to be sold, and it will be the purpose
of this general sale today to complete-
ly exhaust the number printed.
The Athletic Review is a yearly
publication put out by the Athletic
association of the University for the
sole purpose of aiding athletics at
Michigan. The fee charged in the sale
of the books is just enough to cover
costs of printing and of distribution.
It is especially urged by those in
charge of the book that students read
the review well as a method of best
acquainting themselves with the year's
athletic events at their University.
Cc .ch Fielding H. Yost, director of
athledcs, has taken 2,000 of the cop-
ies of the Athletic Review for the Ath-
letic association. These copies will be
sent out to the high schools in the
state and surrounding sections to
acquaint high school athletes with
Michigan athletics and with the new
development of physical pastimes at
the University.
June Gargoyle Registers Large Sale
Customary good sales disposed of
the entire campus quota-of June Gar-
goyles, according to Sydney Sara-
shon, '22, business manager. Three
thousand copies were sold on the cam-
pus. A few copies still remain at the
news stands and drug stores and may
be procured if called for immedi-

sition, when they split the Machine
vote by nominating "duke" Dunne and
Jim Frey for "the most poular man,"I
and sent their candidate, "bud" Rea,
under the wire a winner. Undaunt-
ed by this crushing defeat, the Ma-
chine came back with a gusto and
elected Frank Steketee, "the hand-
somest man" of the class over Maynard
Newton, the Opposition candidate, who
was out for almost as many honors as
was James G. Frey, leader of the Ma-
A clever move by the Machine failed
of its purpose in ele&ing "the best
man student." Sidney Sarasohn car-
ried the Opposition colors to victory,c
despite the attempted split brought
on by the Machine in nominating t
Stewart Taft Beach, so that its candi-
date, Forman G. Brown, might win.
The vote was close, however, and re- I
quired a recount. t
Opposition Runs Strong t
The Opposition seemed to be defeat-
ing the Machine on all points after the
next ballot, for Allen Sunderland led
Herman Lustfield, Frey's candidat,
and O. W. Rush, who ran independent-
ly, for "the biggest grind." Sunder-
land's campaign plea that he needed
that title to win favor with his pro-
fessors carried him over with the
class, however. The most successful
"bluffer" was adudged to be Brew-
ster P. Campbell, who overwhelming-I
ly defeated the Opposition candidate,
Thomas C. Truss.
The Machine's power was clearly ev-
idenced on the next ballot, which by
two votes elected James G. Frey leader
of that party, "the smoothest poli-
tican" over C. Maurice Atkinson,
leader of the Opposition. The astute
Frey crept into office by having his
heelers nominate Maynard Newton,
Atkinson's able lieutenant, and thus
splitting the vote of the Opposition.
The Machine henchmen slipped up
on the next ballot and allowed Atkin-
son to win again, this time as "the
biggest fusser." In an attempt to
split the Opposition ticket and send
William Michaels across, Frey nom-
inated Thornton W. Sargent for that
place, who, however, received only
one vote.
Votes Well Split,
The Machine had no candidate to
oppose Walter B. Rea, as "the most
bashful man" and permitted his elec-
tion to go uncontested. In exchange
for this courtesy, the Opposition per-
mitted the two Machine candidates,
Duke Dunne and Frank Steketee, to
fight it out for "the best athlete," the
former winning. 1.
Again the Machine scored when
Frey was elected to his second office,
that of "the best kidder." Bob Wieneke
and Floyd Sergeant together failed to
equal Frey's total,' so smoothly w:
the Machine working by this time.
The geatest cries of corruption
against the two organizations came
from the women, who had clearly been
promised the support of both parties
in exchange for votes. Because of the
numerous promises made, several
women were out for each position.
and the result was close elections.
Girls Stage Close Races
Frances Weimer in a close race for
"the most popular girl defeated Dor-
is Sprague and Martha Shepherd,
while Joyce McCurdy came in victor-
ious over Mildred Henry ad Esther
Kennedy as "the prettiest girl." Dor-
is Sprague won out as "the best girl
student" however, Edna Groff and
Carol MacDonald going down to de-
feat. There was no opposition to Ne-
va Lovewell as the "biggest grind, and
Elizabeth 'Vickery had no opponent
for the honor of "the class vamp."
"The jolliest girl" was Josephine Wal-
ters, although Helen Bischop and Haz-
el Storz received a large number of
votes. Inez Reiger, while opposed by
Laura Snyder, won a distinct victory
in being chosen "the most bashful
Before the elections disrupted the
meeting, reports of the committe
were heard, and an alumni secretary
was elected. Robert, Wieneke was
chosen secretary, and James G. Fr
and Laura Snyder assistants.

between the Michigan Union and the
Women's League, it was decided. Oth-
er committee reports were concerned
largely with Commencement we'
"The Melting Pot" will be present-
ed in University Hall tonight, at 8
o'clock, by Professor Hollister's class
in play production. The members of
the cast follow: Amy Loomis, '22,
Ruth Oaks, '22, Devera Steinberg. '22,
Helen Elliot, '23, Milton Landy, '23,

Ewing, S. of M.
This is the sixth of a series of plays
which the play production class has
presented to the public this year as
part of its regular class work.

Will A rrange Seats Along North
Tniversity Avenue With Amplifiers
to. Transmit Speeches
Plans for solving the seating prob-
lem at Commencement, June 19, were
the chief topics of discussion at the
conference of the deans held yester-
day morning. At their last meeting
the Regents decided that the gradua-
tiori exercises were to be held in Hill
auditorium, and the difficulty con-
fronting the deans was how to seat
the large audience which is expectea.
to attend in the auditorium, whose ca-
pacity is only 4,800. Those who com-
prise the graduating class number ap-
proximately 1,700, and allowing two
tickets to each graduate would bring
the minimum attendance to 5,100, or
300 more than the number which can
be seated.
Would Use Amplifiers
The decision of the deans was to
have erected-on North University ave-
nue in front of the Natural Science
and Chemistry buildings bleachers
which will seat the overflow from the
auditorium. Amplifiers will be in-
stalled and the speech of Secretary
Hpghes will be transmitted by them to
those outdoors. The site for the
bleachers is also an advantageous one
from which to view the Commence-
ment parade.
A further decision made by the
deans in regard to the Commencement
exercises was that candidates for a
degree from the School of Education
should follow the candidates from the
engineering college on the program.
Do Not Favoi M. H. C.
Action was also taken in regard to
the proposal of the National Confer-
ence Committee of Standards that a
new "degree of M. H. C. (Magister
Honoris Causa) be created and award-
ed in place of the present master of
arts pr master of science.
Dean Bates and Dean Lloyd, who
had been appointed a committee to in-
vestigate the matter, reported upon it
adversely. Their reasons were that
they opposed the multiplicption of de-
grees, and that they considered the
present masters degrees to be entirely
adequate. -
Discuss Other Details
President Marion L. Burton a-
pointed a committee to investigate the
subeet of travelling expenses paid
by the University. It was felt by the
deans that the great increase in requi-
sitions for, such exnenses warranted
a careful study of the matter.
In order to make more stringent the
regulations compelling physical exam-
ination of students, it was decided to
request the Regents to give their as-
sistance in enforcing this rule. At a
meeting early this year the deans vot-
ed to withhold the credit of any stu-
dent who evaded a physical examina-
tion, but this measure has not prov-
ed entirely successful.

Music by the Varsity band, and nu-
merous specialty acts by students will
feature the second Senior sing of the
