Bridgeman and Three Oaks Stick In
Running In Class C
Hart and Lake Linden in the class
B tournament and Bridgeman and
Three Oaks in the class C tourney re-
rained in the race for the state has-
ktball title by virtue of their vie
tores in the first elimination round
held last night in Waterman gym.
in the opening game of the tour-
nament, Bridgeman had a compara-
tively easy time defeating the St.
James five of Bay City, 21-14. The
first half ended with the score 11-2
in favor of the Bridgeman five. Th.
Bay City team threatened the victor's
lead early in the third quarter, but
could not cope with the fast offensive
attack launched by the Bridgeman five
in the final period. Decker and Kull
starred for the victors, each scoring
four field goals.
The Hart-Alma encounter in Class
R was a closely fought battle, ending
with a 34-27 score in favor of Hart.
The final gam2 on th g program was.
easily the feature contest of the eve-
ning. Lake Linden worked up into the
semi-finals by handing the Petoskey
five an overwhelming defeat in an ex-
ceptionally fast game, which ended
in a 36-17 score. The upper peninsula
aggregation displayed a sensational
scoring combination in the first hal.
Alex MacDougall, star forward for the
Linden team, scored eight baskets I
from the playing floor in the first half.
The Petoskey team was unable to
stop the short passing attack which
the winners used to get the ball close
to the basket. Petoskey was almost;
helpless in the first half which closed1
with the score 22-5.t
The second elimination tourney will
be held this morning, when Sturgisi

"We are as yet too much in the
direct wake of the Great War to say
what its effect will be upon litera-
ture," said Prof. W. O. Raymond of!
the English department yesterday inI
commenting upon the view that the
greatest literature we have has come
from war. "Extended periods of sta-
bility, the age of Pericles, the August-I
an era, the renaissance, and the Vict-
orian epoch, have profited the world
most in artistic productions. The ult-
imate results of the world war for lit-
erature a-re certain to be immense."
Two phenomena are likely to be ob-
served in the literary world after such
a conflict in the opinion of ProfessorI
Raymond. Continuance on the part
of established writers along the lines
already familiar to the public may be
seen in such men as Wells and Gals-
worthy, while unrest, produced by
the confusion of the times and the
upsetting of old standards is evident
in a great deal of the writing being
done now.
"We are still unsettled," Professor
Raymond said. "Industrialism which
has claimed much of American effort
and ingenuity in the past will pres-
ently become so mechanized as t'
permit a release of powers for otheri
activities. Then we may be able to
trace again the connection between'

Limit on 11i13 Tax, If Retained,
Will Cause Shortage
In Funds
It was learned at a late hour
last night that a telegram was
received .by the Board of Regents
stating that the University build-
ing appropriation bill was report-
ed out of the house university
committee without any change in
the appropriation requested.
No confirmation of the announce-
ment nade Wednesday that the Uni-
versity committee of the state House
ok Representatives would cut the ap-
propriation bill of the University from
$3,192,700 to $1,800,000 had been re-
ceived yesterday by University of-
cials. It is still hoped by the Uni-
versity officials that the state legis-
lature will grant all of the funds re-
quested, despite the action taken by
the House University committee.
Shirley W. Smith, secretary of the
University, who met with the ways
and means committee of the House
in Lansing Wednesday, stated yester-
day that that committee seemed de-
sirous of doing everything possible foi
the University.
Representatives of the University
emphasized the need of removing they
limit from the mill tax in their appeal
to the committee. Secretary Smith
explained that the institution's re-
quested budget, exclusive of lands and f
buildings is $5,860,000.I
With the present limit on the mill
tax allowed the University, the sum
collected will fall $1,618,000 short of
this amount, Secretary Smith explain-
ed. Even though the limit is taken
from the mill tax, as hoped by the
University authorities, the amount
collected still will be $715,000 3hoiru
Mr. Smith stated that the budget
might be cut to meet this shortage.

All of the classes of the Colleges
of Engineering and Architecture are
scheduled to meet at 11 o'clock this
morning in Hill Auditorium.
Although the principal speaker on
the program still remains unannounc-
ed the committee in charge of the
program reports that an engineer of
national prominence has been secured
for the occasion. Dean Mortimer E.
Cooley of the Colleges of Engineering
and Architecture will also give an ad-
dress, and a few practising engineers
are expected to be present.
The movement for the general as-
embly comes largely from the stu-
dent body, the mentor committee
merely sponsoring and aiding the
students in arranging the program.
The Mentor committee, according to
Prof. C. E. Wilson of the Mechanical
engineering department and mentor of
the senior class, is of the opinion that
by holding a general assembly once
each semester a feeling of common
interest and cooperation will be fost-
It was further decided to seat the
engineers according to their classes.
The senior class will occupy the first
twenty rows in section three, the
junior engineers will occupy the first
twenty-five rows in section two, the
sophomore engineers will be seated
in the first twenty-five rows in sec-
tion four while the freshmen engi-
neers will be seated in section three
! in the rear of the senior class. TheE
members of the faculty are urged to
occupy the seats on the stage.

Knowi ledge of Tax Procedure Enabled
Convincing Show of
Washington, March 26.-(By A. P.)
-Arrests just made in Connecticut
and Washington are believed by in-
ternal revenue officials to have brok-
en up a group of former employees of
the bureau of internalrevenue en-
gagedl in an alleged attempt to "sell
influence" among tax payers on the
claim that it could have tax assess-
ments reduced.
With thearrest of John S. McCarren
and J. M. Clifford in New Haven, the
bureau gave out details of an alleged
effort of those two and Fredrick Suth-
erland, apprehended here, to collect
fees from the New York, New Haven,
and Hartford Railroad company for
"reducing" a fake assessment of more
than $1,000,000. Sutherland, until a
few days ago an auditor in the in-
come tax unit, was accused by the
bureau of drafting the fake assess-
ment letter.
Officials of the railroad carried the
matter tosthe attention of treasury
officials as soon as they were ap-
proached, and the investigation which
followed resulted in the arrests. Bur-
eau officials also - were quick to see
the danger of other swindling at-
tempts of similar character, in view
of the large number of former 'm-
ployees who are well acquainted with
routine in the bureau and could, if so
inclined, make convincing representa-
tions of "influence."
There has been little chance, in any
of the few cases of crookedness un-
covered recently, by which the gov-
ernment could lose, officials asserted,
but they explained that tax payerst
unfamiliar with the law and the oper-1
ation of the bureau might easily be
misled, and part with substantial feesi
without hope of restitution.
The tr-easury has tried to ch'eck

for freedom of expression for the
University Professor, Prof. Brand
Blanshard, of the philosophy depart-

principles involved in a measure, rel-
ative to the actions of professors in
state institutions, which is now being
considered by the Ohio senate, but
declared that the other principle in-
volved in the measure is nothing
short of inquisitorial tyranny. ,
The resolution being considered by
the Ohio senate provides for a legis-I

to involve two principles, one of
which may be justifiable, while the
other appears to be inquisitorial tyr-

to prevent irresponsible extremists
from using University buildings for

be said for its stand. However, so
far as the Senate attempts to pry into
