Bartron has done well in this vivid
piece of work. It is orderly, clear
as a well-cut diamond, and has a
number of masterly pen strokes which
indicate that Robert is perhaps free

Lawrence H. Conrad's short story,
"The Light" is also worth spending
some time over. It is a good-if you
do not believe it read Wally Elliott's
latest. The story has an abrupt twist
toward the end which saves it from
being a conventional Sunday school
story with a moral, but the twist is a
little too abrupt. It gives the reader
,a temporary mental cramp before he
adjusts himself. Conrad's style is
semi-journalistic, without the embel-
lishment of the stylist, and lacking
the atrocities of the ungrammatical
journalistic author. The difficulty of
this middle ground is, clearly, that of
keeping up interest. In this case it
is done through the medium of the

Gives Lecture On
Relativity Theory
"Evidence of the Relativity Theory
as Afforded by Spectal Lines" was
the subject of a third lecture given
by Prof. A. Sommerfeld of the Uni-
versity of Munich, yesterday 'after-'
noon in the west lecture room of
the Physical laboratory.
Continuing his previous discus-

illustrations, pointed out the de-

Professor Sommerfeld, an ac-
knowledged authority in the field of
atomic structure, will conclude a se-

First Team's Combination Play Keeps
Catholics Bewildered Through
First Half
Michigan opened the basketball sea-
son last night in Waterman gym by
decisively beating Notre Dame, 41 to
23, in a rather listless, one-sided
game. At no time was the Hoosier
team in the running, Mather's men
especially the first string five, being
able to ring up points with an unus-
ual degree of regularity. In all the
Wolverine mentor paraded 14 mem-
bers of his squad for the ediflcation of
the crowd, which left but few empty
seats as Captain Ely and Riordan of
Notre Dame faced each other for the
opening of the game.
Bill Miller, veteran Wolverine for-
ward, was the individual star of the
evening's performance with seven field
goals and 14 out of 19 free throws for
a total of 28 points. He was the dash
of the Michigan offensive and was in-
strumental in keeping the major por-
tion of the play under the Notre Dame
basket. There is no doubt but that
Miller is ready for the greatest sea-
son of his career
Starts With Rush
Michigan started with a rush after
the apposition had counted a free
throve and after Miller had retaliated
with a successful attempt from the
foul- line was never again headed.'
Math -r's forwards passed rapidly and
with unusual accuracy for the first
game of the season, Ely, Miller, and
Haggerty working the ball into scoring
territory in a manner that was a, de-
light t> see. Notre Dame was evident-
Ily bewildered by the sure fire tactics
of the Maize and Blue five and when
Math r withdrew his first team near
the close of the first half and substi-
1tuted an entire team the score stood
27 to 7 against the Catholics.
Play slowed up perceptibly after
the second team took the floor, the
lack of confidence and smooth play
telling heavily against the Wolverines.
The substitutes showed enough, how.
ever, to convince the crowd that Math-
er has a world of material for which
future teams will be built and some
strong reinforcements for the first line
corps when the regular campaign gets
uider way.
Regulars Slowed Up
