Willis J. Abbot, editor of the Chris-
tian Science Monitor and Mrs. Char-
lotte P. Gilman, noted author and lec-
turer, delivered the two main ad-

The sophomores will assemble at 9
o'clock in front of Waterman gymnas-
ium. At 9:20 they will march to the
field via East University, South Uni-
versity, and State streets. Every man
who enters the games must furnish
his own paint. Student councilmen
will be on hand to lead the two
classes to the field.
At their class meeting held yester-
day aftemnoon in Natural Science
auditorium Cornelius Gabler, '27A,
was elected captain of the sophomore
class. Gabler will choose a number of
lieutenants to aid in organizing the
class for the games.
Three Eents
Three events will be included in
the games this year; the pillow fight,
the cane spree, and the flag rush.
Each event will count one point; the
las winning two of the three events
being declared winner of the games.
In the pillow fight, 9 men chosen
from each class bythe class captain
will compete. Three pairs of under-
classmen will struggle with pillows
in the three rounds into which this
event has been divided. The rounds
ape scheduled to last for 10 minutes'
each. Two participants, a sophomore
and a freshman are mounted on a
wooden horse six feet high. The com-
batant, who, with the aid 6f a pillow
succeeds in completely unhorsing his
opponent wins. The class taking two
of the three rounds wins the one+
point alloted for the pillow fight.l
The cane spree will be the second
event on the program. In this event+
two teams of 10 men each are select-I
ed by the respectiveclassscaptains.+
The object of this event is for the+
participants to wrest the canes from
their opponents. The class having
possession of the greatest number of1
canes at the end of a 10 minute period
wins. In case of a tie an additional
three minute struggle will take place]
to break the tie.
The last event will be the flag rush
in which event three poles 2G feet high
and set at intervals -of 30 feet arel
guarded by the freshman class. The
sophomores then attempt to capture
the freshman colors floating from the
top of each pole. In order to take this
event the sophomores must win two
of the three poles. The flag rush will
be divided into two 10 minute periods
with a 10 minute rest period.
Rules For Gaies1
The rules for, the games state that
tennis shoes must be worn by all
participants. Slugging and kicking
are barred. Tampering in anyway with1
the poles for the flag rush is pro-
hibited. 'Eugene Dunne, '25, chairman
ef the committee in charge of the
games, announced that, "any violation
of the rules in any event will auto-
matically discount that event in the
final count of the games."F

Championship Race Will be Held Over
Ferry Field Course This
!!! Morning
At 11 o'clock this morning 15 cross
country teams representing the cream
of the hill and dale squads of the Mid-
dle West will meet In the annual
Conference championship race, over
the Ferry field course for the first
time that the race has ever been held
in Ann Arbor, Ohio State or Illi ois
usually being . given the honor.
All advance dope points to one of
the fastest and most closely contested
races in the history of the Middle
West, as five teams appear to be of
about equal strength. Ohio State, Wis-
consin, Iowa, Chicago, and Michigan'
have powerful teams and to pick a
winner from among them is nearly
The race is featured this year by
the fact that nearly every team has
one or two outstanding stars which
should result in exceptionally fast
times. Ohio State is depending on
Captain Wycoff to lead them in first,
but Captain Phelps of Iowa, winner
of the run last year, is at the height
of his career and will make a determ-'
ined effort to keep the laurels he won
a year ago. Other stars that will push
these men hard are Shirek of Mar-
quette, Captain Bourke of Chicago,
Mieher, Conference two mile cham-
pion, of Illinois, and Kubly and Perry
of Wisconsin.
Michigan, with no outstanding star,
will depend on a balanced team to
bring home the bacon. It has been
demonstrated time and again that it
takes a well balanced team to win a
race with so many entries as there
are today. Michigan's team is the
most evenly balanced cross country
aggregation that Coach Farrell has
ever developed, as was evidenced in
the trial race held Wednesday when
the first five men breasted the tape
together with the sixth man only a
few feet behind.
Beginning the season with only
two veterans around whom to mold
a team, Coach Farrell has accomplish-
ed wondes with the small green
squad that turned out. Developing
slowly the men have shown up bet-
ter in each race and seem to have
reached the peak at just the right
time. Miles Reinke will be the only
veteran to run on the Michigan team,
three of the men being sophomores
and three juniors. Briggs, Callahan,
Hornberger, and Baker have been the
most consistent runners on the squad
and barring accidents should finish
well up in front, while if Mason and
Reinke, the other two members of the
team, run as they have the last week
they too should be with their team-
mates. Coach Farrell will not pre-
dict the outcome but ne is expecting
the boys to surprise those who have
been counting Michigan out of con-
The start will take place near the
tennis courts on Ferry field and the
runners will finish a short distance
away on the Ann Arbor golf course.

dresses before the sixth annual meet-
Ing of the University Press club of
Michigan yesterday. More than 250
state editors and students of journal-
ism have attended the session of the
three-day conference which opened
here Thursday.
Mr. Abbot, the leader of conserva-
tive journalism in this country, de-
livered the main address at the an-
nual banquet of the convention at the
Union last night, speaking upon
"Headlining Happiness." He urged
the journalists to follow the policy of
his paper and keep evil from their
In the course of his remarks, Mr.
I Abbot deplored the tendency of the
modern press to play up the abnor-
mal in the life of the nation. "Put
your headlines upon happiness," ad
vised the editor, "not on evil and
Secretary Shirley Smith also spoke
at the banquet, at which A. I. Miller
of Battle Creek, the president of the
club, presided.. He outlined the re-
cent progress of the University in his
speech on "The University Today,"
also stating the aims for the future
held by President Marion L. Burton,
especially stressing the need of bet-
ter-paid and more professors and
"I used to be a secretary of an edu-..
cational institution," he said in open-
ing his remarks on the growth of the
University, "before I became a gen-!
eral contractor." In his concluding
statements he paid high tribute to
President Burton and his far-reach-
ing outlook for the University.
Mrs. Gilman, the grand niece of
Harriet B. Stowe, of "Uole Tom's
Cabin" fame, created the most dis-
cussion of the gathering to date when
she bitterly attacked present day
newspapers for their mis-use of the
great power which they have. She
was particularly bitter towards the
New York Sun, as well as towards the
"yellow journals" of today.
Attacks "Yellow Journals"
In speaking upon "The Whole
Truth In, Newspaper Work," Mrs. Gil-
man raised a storm of protest among
the delegates when she claimed that
the present-day newspaper is con-
trolled by its advertisers. "I have
found it difficult," ,she said in her
opening remarks, "to pursue the thread
to truth In the newspapers, the great-
est social function of the age. Thel
newspapers forget that journalism is
a profession, and treat it as a trade.
It is one of the most pitiful facts of
the newspapers today that they grati-
fy the lowest grades of curiosity."
The other main speech of the after-
noon was delivered by Prof. Joseph
Hayden of the political science de-
partment who spoke upon the subject
{ "News in and from the Philippines." I
"Practically no unbiased news comes
out of the Philippines today," he de-
clared, "except that furnished by the
Associated Press."
Philippines BackwardI
To this fact he laid the failure of
the general American public to under- I
stand the Philippine situation as it
exists today. He also deplored the
lack of unity in that country and defi-
nitely placed the blame upon the fact
that no general reading public exists
in that country. In the course of his
remarks, Professor Hayden outlined
the present press situation there, de-
claring that he saw no chance for im-
provement for many years.
Goodrich Speaks
At yesterday morning's session of
the conference, the relations of the
newspapers and the courts were taken
up by Prof. H. F. Goodrich of the law
school who spoke upon "Contempt of
Court as Applied to Newspapers" and
Stuart H. Perry, editor of the Adrian
Telegram spoke on the subject "Civil
Liability in Libel." The other morn-
ing speech by Mr. A. R. Treanor of

Shields, '94, Representing Alumn,
Says. Not To Regret Defeat
By illinois
Coach Fielding H. Yost, for 30
years director of Michigan's football
destinies, was the principal speaker at
the final pep meeting of the year,
held in Hill auditorium last night. He
spoke of the spirit that has made pos-
sible the athletic record of Michigan
since the Ohio game of 1921 and which
is greatest against odds. Edmund
Shields, '94, represented the alumni.
The meeting was opened by cheers,
led by Lyman Glasgow, '25, Varsity
cheer leader, and new arrangements
for the double cheering sections at
the game today were rehearsed. Al-
fred Connable ,'25, president of thej
Student council introduced the speak-
ers. {
Mr. Shields, who played baseball
for Michigan "for five years" and
captained the team during his senior
year, declared that Michigan has
changed very little in 31 years. "The
student body has not changed-except
for the girls. They are prettier every
The Illinois game is not to be
regretted. It simply shows that once
in a while the Deity, in His infinite
[wisdom, lets a man like Grange go to
an institution other than Michigan.
The Michigan team is still good, but
who knew that an aeroplane on wheels
would be at Illinois?'
Show Slides
After the showing of slides of the'
coaches and team, Ernest Nickel, a
professional whistler and ex-student
of the University of California, gave
two selections and then led the crowd
in whistling "Varsity" and "The Vic-
tors," accompanied by the band.
Coach Yost began by citing the re-
markable record of Michigan since
the Ohio game on October 22, 1921,
during -which time she has defeated
Minnesota four times, Ohio three
times, Wisconsin three times and tied
once, Illinois _txice and lost once,
Iowa once, Northwestern once, and'
has not lost a non-Conference game;:
a record approached only by that of
the University of California.
Tribute To Michigan
"Football games are won by weeks
of sacrifice and training .in sleet and
snow," he declared. "If you are not
convinced of the wonderful spirit and
determination of Michigan teams, in- I
quire at Champaign or Madison or
Minnesota. The greatest tribute I
eer read was written by a Wisconsin!
man the night before the Wisconsin
game last year. He wrote 'The Michi-
gan team has arrived in town. It is'
crippled by injuries, but it is a Michi-
gan team, and being from Michigan, it
will fight until the last minute.' The
spirit that knows how to fight, the
spirit of service, is greater than the
spirit of victory.Y
In closing, Coach Yost-red the tri-
bute, written by the players and
coaches, to the mother of Edgar Mad-
sen, '27, Varsity football player, who
passed away Thursday night. "In body
and in mind he was immaculately
clean. He was courageous; he was
loyal. While a member of the Michigan
football team he never missed a
The meeting concluded with the
singing of "The Yellow and the Blue."

She was born in Marion, Ohio, in
1860, of a sturdy stock of pioneers,
her father, Amos King, being one of
the town's first settlers. She married
Mr. Harding in 1891 when things did
not look too bright for him. At that
time he had just taken over the own-
ership of the Marion Star, and it was
loaded down with mortgages. She
went to work in the business office of
the paper and it was partially due
to her efforts that it proved such a'
From the time of her childhood
Mrs. Harding encountered hardships
which would have broken a less
courageous spirit. At the time of her
entrance into the White House as
First Lady of the Land she vas brok-
kn in health but nevertheless she under-I
took the heavy responsibilities with all
her vim. She told newspapermen at
the time of Mr. I-arding's in iugura-
tion that "We are just folks, but
when I enter the White House I pro-
pose to accept all of its social obliga
tions and become First Lady of the
Land in truth as well as name."
Mrs. Harding always kept in close
touch with her husband's work, and
there was none better informed at the
time of his campaign in 1920 as to his
affairs. She had opinions, and she
was outspoken in expressing them to
the men entrusted with the manage-
ment of the campaign. When in the
White House she visited the Executive
offices, and made many suggestions
for facilitating the public business.
The discontinuance' of these visits
was the first sign of her failing health.
The social program was continued,
however. uo to the time of her coll-
I apse in 1922.
Next Monday afternoon the little
handful of men, who have guarded
Warren Harding's remains, will be
drawn at present arms by Lieutenant
Walter Lee Sherfey while the body
of Mrs. Harding is placed beside her
husband. Taps then will be sounded
and the little military band of 23 men
