Af. A. C. Attack Proves Weak Before
Invincible Work of Wolverine
Several hundred persons comfortably
filled Waterman gymnasium last night
expecting to see Michigan overwhelm
M. A. C. In point of final score they
were not disappointed, the last count
being 33 to 11, but Michigan's victory
was anything but a glorious one.
It is a fortunate thing that Michigan
seldom displays such weakness as she I
displyaed against the Farmers. The
Aggies were woefully weak in every
department of the game, Michigan de-
,lorable in but one, but that one was
enough to hold the Maize and Blue
score, which should have required a

Two Former Students Are Given Ban
quet at Great Falls
Two former students of Michigan
who have recently been elected to po-
sitions of political importance were
guests of honor at a banquet tender-
ed them by the Michigan alumni of
Great Falls, Montana.
Scott Leavitt of Grand Falls attend-
ed the University in 1899 and 1900.
He has been elected to represent his
district in the United States Congress.
This makes nineteen Michigan men
in Congress.
The other guest was Lew L. Calla-
way, '91L, who is now a chief jus-
tice of the state supreme court. He
s;raduated from both the literary and
law schools of Michigan, and has been
a prominent, member of his profes-
sion since that. time.
State Legislature Opens Fifty-Second
Session at Lansing, Read and.
Welsh Speak
Lansing, Mich., Jan. 3.--The fifty-
second Michigan legislature formally
opened today, both houses completing
organization, and Governor Groesbeck
was notified they were ready to re-
ceive .his 'message. The executive's
outline of legislation desired by the
administration issto be read at a joint
session,, in the House chamber tnoor-
row afternoon.
The work. of the organization was
little more than a formality in each
branch, officers . having been agreed
upon at Senate' and House caucuses
Ilast niglt.
In addresses before the Senate and
House,-Liut.-Gov. Read and. Speaker
George Welsh, outlined measures that
could be elpected to come up during
the sessicn, and revie'wed the results
of previous sessions, Mr. Read prais-
ing the Groesbeck administration, the
chief accomplishment of .which, he
said,; had been economy and efficiency
in, conducting the state affalirs.
Among the measures advocated by
the Lieutenant-Governor was a revis-
iot of the tax .laws - to provide for]
more equitable distribution of high-
way maintenance. The growth of com-
mercial trucking, Mr. Read said, has
brought 'a new highway problem,: the
state being compelled, under present
laws, to maintain roads for the profit
of commercial enterprises.

battery of adding machines, according
to the comparative power of the two
aggregations, down to a meagre 33.'
That one great ewakness of Mather'sI
men was in their dangerous lack ofJ
ability to cage baskets.
The Michigan offense was a thing of
beauty, working with regulated pre-
cision that the Aggies could never
handle. The Michigan defense was
remarkable. But when it came to
real; dyed-in-the-wool ability to drop
the sphere through the meshes of the
basket Michigan simply wasn't there.
The Wolverines started out with a
bang, scoring eight points before the
Farmers could tally. It looked like
the first rounds of a massacre. The
attempts of the Green clad quintet to
drive the ball past the middle of the
floor were comical to behold and drew
roars of laughter from the crowd.
After those first few moments, how-
ever, things looked a bit different. It
wasn't that the Farmers tightened,
their walls, nor that the power of the
Michigan attack grew weaker. Michi-
gan just could not drop that ball
through the hoop, and it was not un-
til the first half had ended 12 to 6,
and the second period was well under
way, that the Wolveriens discovered
their lost basket eye and began drop-
ping them with some degree of regu-
Captain Ely was the outstanding,
Michigan player. The Wolverine
leader dropped the only three bas-
kets made by his teams during the!
first half, and in the second, before
Rice took. his place, caged another:
trio and put through three free
throws in a row. Ely played a whale
of a game both on attack and de-
fense; and had his team-mates played
in his consistent form the score wouldI
have been considerably larger.
Miller had a distinctly off night.
The big forward missed shot aftr
shot throughout the session, finally
rounding into something of his regu-
lar form in the second half and drop-!

Italian and French Proposals Called
Quite Unacceptable to British
(By Associated Press)
Paris, Jan. 3.-Rupture of the pre-
nier's conference, with all its danger-
ous possibilities for Europe and the
Near East, was barely avoided today
by a recess until tomorrow, when thq
untinished declaration by the British
Prime Minister, Mr Bonar Law, in re-
ply to Premier Poincare and Theusys
will be completed, and Marquis della
Vorretta will have a formal opportun-
ity to state the Italian government's
The conference, in the judgment of
both French and British delegates,
will probably end tomorrow without
an agreement, thus breaking up unity
among the Allied govurnments, 0',f
which the policies of all of the prin.4
eipA Western powers is based.
Parties Dismayed
There is much dismay and qnxiety
over the situation. The tone of the
conference has been cordial enough,
but the British and French views are
irreconcilable as they stand now. Mr.
Bonar Law is regarded by the French
as personally desirous of doing all
he reasonably can to prevent a break;
but since the publication of the Brit-
ish plan he is thought to be limited
absolutely by his own propositions.
There is no reason to draw a fav-
orable deduction from a continuation
of the conference tomorrow, it was
declared late tonight by a high official
of the French foreign office. The dis-
cussion continued, he explained, be-
cause the members of the conference
had not yet finished what they have
to say, but nothing has developed to
give hope that the French and the
British will come together.
