--More sensations-the most lurid of
the lot yet developed-came today in-
to the records of the senate commit-
tee investigating the case of attorney
general Daugherty. As usual, they-
were fired off with machine gun vel-
ocity. Preston B. Means, former in-'
vestigator for the department of just-
ice and men of many adventures who
described his present business as "an-
swering indictment" testified that he

permits for Whiskey withdrawals and
said he had once investigated at-
torney general Daugherty himself for
President Coolidge.
Means was careful to say that the
charges against the attorney general
which he investigated then, he found'
to be without any foundation in fact.
He also disclaimed that in his testi-
mony today about Smith alleged mon-

of the attorney general being in-

collected for Smith or one W. P. Un,

Elaborate Floral Piece with Class
Nunmerals, Palms, Roses, Make
Up Decorations
By Bay A. Bllington
The sophomores had their annual
party last night. Three hundred of
them packed the ballroom of the Union
to capacity and froiced through the
evening that marked their annual so-
cial event of the school year, the 1926
Soph Prom.
It was a gala crowd that streamed
upon the floor for the opening strains
of the first dance; Gay gowns of
the women. and the sober black dress
of the men blended pleasingly as the
couples drifted abo t' during the few
moments before th beginning of the
grand march and . e official opening
of the ball. ,
Upon William Coleman, '25E, fell
the honor of leading this grand march
with Marion Brittson of Owosso as
his partner. Miss Brittson was
gowned in a somber orange with old
gold lace draped upon it and wearing
gold corsage.
With the strains of "The Victors"
dying, that Ahmous song that has
marked football games and class
marches since times long passed, the
orchetra pounced upon the notes of
the first dance and the joy of the
Prom was one. Roy Bargy's orchest-
ra of Detroit played at the Prom.
They are the group of musicians that
were the leading orchestra at the J-
Hop of this year and that have made
themselves known throughout the
country for their ability as dance art-
The ballroom of the Union was
transformed for the affair. At one end,
the.. walls :were, covered 'with white
flowers, charmingly interwoven, and-
with the numerals of 1926 in red em-
blazoned from.them. Palms:and huge
boquets of roses surrounded the.room.
At the end opposite the symbol of the
Blasss a block ."M," made up of rows
of light, shone from a bankof flowers.'

and Whitman Are Stars In
Running Events
Michigan's Varisty track team will
defend its Conference track title to-
night at the fourteenth annual indoor
track and field meet to be held in
Patten gymnasium, Evanston.
With her title at stake the Wolver-
ine squad, composed of twenty-one
athletes will be driven to the limit
to win. Illinois and Iowa, both of
which have made strong showings in
the early season meets are favored to
finish among the first three and to
cdown them practically every man on
Michigan's team will have to take,
points, especially in consideration of
the fact that the Indian squad made
a much better showing than the Wol-
verines at Illinois relays two weeks
Michigan will rule the favorite in
several events and upon the showings
in several events will. rest the chanc-
es of victory in the meet. Reinke,
Captain Hattendorf, an'd Freyberg are
sexpected to show up well in the 1-2
mile while Wittman, winner of the
Illinois relays dash, should lead the
field in his event. Hubbard, deprived
of an opportunity to show in his fav-
orite event, the broad jump, because
it will not be on the list of events, can
be depended upon to do something in
the hurdles although the opposing
Reinke and Bowen have a good
chance to come through in the mile,
as have Davis, Hicks, and Callahan
in the two mile. Macllven and
Smith are probable point takers in
the high jump, while Brooker can be
relied upon to- give Brownell of Illin-

event, and Brownell in the pole vault
are some of the, athletes who will
help to take points for Illinois and
at the same time take them froii
Michigan, while' Brookins, Coulter,
