Regent W. L. Clements W rites
Burton Tribute For Chimes


More than 400 senior women march-
ed from their banquet at the Unioh
to the Whitney theatre last night to
witness the 21st annual premier of
the Junior Girls' play. If the ap-
plause with which the production was
received is any indication of its suc-

in history as one of the outstanding

tinuance of the old tradition which
barred all men from the annual play
for many years.
"Castles iu Spain" will be presented
every night this week and at a mat-
inee Saturday. Although the house is
well filled for most of the perform-
ances there are still some seats avail-
able for every night, according to
Eunice Rose, the business manager.
Tickets may be procured at the box
office of the Whitney theatre during
this week. The prices of the seats are:
$2.50 for the entire orchestra; $z.00
for the first 4 rows of the balcony;
$1.50 for the next 4 rows; and $1.00
for the remaining seats of the balcony.
The gallery will not be open during
any of the performances.
Those who witnessed the play last
night semed unanimous in the opin-
ion that "Castles in Spain" would
prove an even greater success than
last year's production.




Washington, Mar. 17.-(By A. P.)-
The controversy between President
Coolidge and the Senate over the at-
torney generalship ended abruptly
today with the nomination of John G.
Sargent, of Vermont, for the post, and
his prompt confirmation by the Sen-
Mr. Sargent, a former attorney gen-
eral of Vermont and a close personal
friend of the president, was selected
after Charles B. Warren, of Michigan,
whose nomination twice was rejected
by the Senate, had declined to accept

of the annual productions of its kind.
The audience last night was composed
entirely of women, the seniors in caps
and gowns occupying practically thel
entire orchestra. The performance to-
night will be the first one to which
men will be admitted. This is a con-

xplosion Said to Have Been Caused
by Blast of Dynamite
or Powder
Fairmont, West Virginia, March 17.
-A mine of the Bethlehem Mine cor-
orations, at Barrackville, blew up to-
ight about 9:30 o'clock. Fifty men
re reported entombed. The cause of
e explosion is unknown.
First reports of the explosion were
eager and no one apparently knew
s nature. It was said that the ex-
losion may have been caused by a1
last of dynamite or powder.
Officials of the Bethlehem company
ated soon after the explosion that
ere were no indications that the
fty or more men entombed may not
ave been killed by the explosion.
The explosion took place at.the bot-
m of the shaft. According to mine
ficials, a bomb was dropped in the+
p of the shaft. Indications are that
ome or all of the men are alive as
gnals from them are being heard by
escue men, the latter said.
Rescuing parties are being formed
go into the mine. State and county
olice are on duty at the property in
arge numbers. Scores of men are
orking in an effort to reach the en-
apped miners.
Opportunity for summer employ-

ility for further advancement with

H. R. Dickinson, '27E, Shows Strong
Defense in Evening's
Fastest Go
More than 900 spectators witnessed
the third annual boxing show, held
last night at Waterman gymnasium,
where Coach Ted Sullivan's Michigan
boxers hooked up with opponents from
the City College of Detroit and men
from the A. A. U.
All seven bouts on the program
were 'fast, clean, and interesting in
the extreme. Every one of the seven
bouts, with one exception, was won
by the Michigan entrants. Sam Rob-
bins, of the Ypsilanti A. C., won from
Ted Masserman of Michigan on points,
after three fast rounds, the only bout
of the evening which was captured by
anyone not in Coach Sullivan's string.
In the feature match of the card,
Lester Philbin, '28, won the referee's
decision over Walter Horecki, Christ
Church, Detroit, state amateur welt-
erweight and middleweight champion.
The three rounds were speedy and sci-
entific. Philbin was victorious large-
ly by virtue of his excellent work at
close range, his infighting worried Ho-
recki throughout the contest. The men
fought at 150 pounds.
In the first bout of the evening,
Harry Tapperman,.'28, won on a foul
in the third round from Louis Leipsitz
of Detroit City College, at 111 pounds.
Tapperman was the aggressor during
the first two rounds, but in the third,
Leipsitz landed an unintentional low
blow in a clinch which disqualified
him. The foul was not due to any
intent on his part, but to his habit of
striking his blows low.
- Maurice Markowitz, '26, trimmed
Alec Woods of Christ Church, Detroit,
in three fast rounds in the second
scrap. The match was close at all
times, and both men landed numer-
ous clean punches.
John Sklar, '271, won by a tech-
nical knockout in the third round of
his bout with Andrew Black of City
College. Due to a misunderstanding,
the weights of the two men varied too
widely to send them into the ring un-
der equal conditions. Accordingly,
Sklar used 10-ounce gloves while his
opponent fought with the regulation
eight-ounce mitts. The Michigan box-
er had an advantage in reach, which
proved decidedly to his benefit. In the
third round, Black was plainly beaten.
and Coach Balcer of the Detroit team
threw in the towel to save his man
from further punishment. Sklar took
things easy in the last round.
David Smyser, '25E, won another
teclhnical knockout for the Michigan
fighters in his bout with Reed Ding-
man of Detroit City College in the
third round, Referee Fallon stopping
the uneven contest.
In the 115 pound class, Sam Robbins
of the Ypsilanti Athletic club won the
decision on points from Ted Masser-
man, '28. Superior infighting and an
1 effective left gave Robbins the match.
David Buckley, of City College, was
trimmed by H. R. Dickinson, '27E, in
the 175 pound division. Dickinson dis-
played a powerful left and a strong
defense. The bout was one of the
fastest of the evening.
Trainer Billy Fallon acted as ref-
eree, Coach Charlie Hoyt as timer, and
Coach Ted Sullivan as announcer.
Colonel Lawrence Martin, chief of
the division of maps of the library of
Congress visited the University on
Saturday to inspect the maps of the
William L. Clements library. Colonel
Martin stopped on his way to Wash-
ington from Madison, Wiscoisin,
where he has been giving testimony
in the boundary dispute between the
states of Michigan and Wisconsin.
The boundary dispute is a suit
brought to the Supreme Court by the
state of Wisconsin to determine ac-
curately the state line between the

upper peninsula of Michigan and
Wisconsin, and among the documents
used in the testimony are certain maps
and documents belonging to the Uni-
versity library.
