Government Chaims Right to Body in
Nanke of American
San Antonio, Dec. 13.-(By A..)-
San Antonio has seen her great pro-
cessions and sue has buried her 11-
lustrious dead, but tonight in a man-
ner entirely different, she prepares to
give back to the nation a son of toil
whom death has loaned her for a
fleeting moment.
Strange to rugged Sam Gompers!
could he have looked upon them,
would have been the scenes of h'is
funeral cortege as his mortal body
was started on its long journey home.
With the pomp of a general, but withj
the sentiment of the humble, labor's
late chieftain was to be borne;
toward the rising sun by a grieving
His last ride in this city of his
death was to be on an artillery
caisson, and the last escort for the
man who has fought all his life, but
always in civilian clothes, was to be
composed of men in military uni-
The government whose hand he has
upheld in peace and in war, stepped
in to claim the body for the wholel
American people and through the
U. S. army, the American people of-
ficially took back their dead. Mr.
Gompers' last words were "God blessj
our American institutions," and one
of these institutions-the United
States army-claimed that he belong-
ed to them as much as to anyone.'
Soldiers from Fort Sam Houston were1
assigned to the escort. Not only labor
possesses him, they said, but the'
country also. The music of a military
band and the rumble of a militaryJ
carriage were to be his requiem. }
Sleeping in his great bronze cask-I
et, in a flag draped house of death,
the late president of the American'
Federation of Labor drew to himself
throughout the day the men of labor,
and the men of capital, those who
worked in field and factory, those
who knew him as a name only and
those who knew him as a loved and'
loving champion, all filed past the
massive coffin which was flanked by
banks of flowers and draped with the
American flag.


Miss Mary Atherton, of IDe-
troit, will lead the grand march
of the J-Hop, kith Charles G.
Oakman, '26, general chairman
of the Hop committee. Oakman
and Miss Atherton are old class-
mates, having attended gram-
mar school together, and both
are graduates of Detroit North-
ern high school. Since her grad-
uation in 1921, Miss Atherton
has been engaged in social wel-
fare work in Detroit.
Oakman was elected to the
position of general chairman by
his classmates in the literary
college. As it is customary for
the chairmanship to be held al-
ternately by a literary student
and an engineer, the J-Hop last
year was led by Edliff R.
Slaughter, '25E, accompanied by
Miss Ethel Mae Tuell, both from
Louisville, Ky.

SCORE 26-10
Captain Haggerty and Cherry Star
In Overwhelming Attack
Of Varsity Five
(By W. It. Stoneman)
Michigan's Varsity basketball team
opened its season with a 26-10 victory
over M. A. C. last night in the Field
house. It was Michigan's game from
the start and the Aggies failed to
threaten the Wolverine lead after the
first minute of play.
The stellar basket shooting of Cap-
tain George Haggerty and the great
defensive work of Red Cherry com-
bined" to give the Michigan five an
overwhelming advantage over the
Farmers. Haggerty's work accounted
for five field goals during the course
of the contest and Cherry kept the
touted Nutilla, captain of the Aggies,
so well covered thatl he only had three
shots at the hoop, every one of which
was so hurried that it went wide.
Cherry also tied for second honors
in scoring with a field goal and two
free throws out of as many tries. Dick
