Architects' May Party Tckets
I Will Be Distributed This Week



Applications to the Architects' May
party have been returned, and tickets
will be given out to accepted appli-
cants Thursday and Friday afternoon,
April 30 and May 1 at the Union, it
was announced last night. A limited
number of tickets still remain for the
party, however, and these will be sold
at the same time, to the first comers.
The May party, which will'be held
May 8, will follow the now almost
traditional plan of the Architects'
parties in having original decorations
designed by the students themselves.
This year's design is in the Oriental
spirit, and costumes are expected to
follow out the same idea, although
this is not obligatory. Some special
costume must be worn, however. f

The competition for posters for the
party which has been conducted by
the committee in charge had not been
decided at a late hour last night, but
lte best designs submitted will be on
display in Grahams' window after the
judges' decision.
Wrights' colored orchestra, of Co-
lumbus, Ohio, which will furnish
music for the affair, has a consider-
able reputation south of the Mason
and Dixon line, both for the quality
of their straight music and the en-
tertainment they furnish on the side.
This fact, together with the fact that
the grand march, long the bane of
campus parties, has been abolished,
should result in a party even better
than last year's ball.

effort is being made to enlist the
best material on the campus in order
to make the production as represen-
tative as possible on its eastern trip.
Everett is a member of the staff of
the Gargoyle, and was the designer
of the poster used for "Tickled to
Death." He was in the chorus of the
1924 Mimes production. Davies was
on the Opera publicity committee,

of The Daily.

For This Year
Members of the freshman class will
gather in the last meeting of the year
with the class as a whole at a ban-
quet at 6:15 o'clock next Thursday

mas holidays last winter when more
than 500 first year men were present.
The social commitee of the class,
headed by Thomas C. Winter, '28 and
the underclass department of the
Union under William L. Diener, '26
are in charge of the dinner.
At this meeting, the program will
be composed largely of freshman

Dr. Hudson's thorough training in
international law, supplemented by
his experience, has given him an im-
pressive command of his subject. His
services in the State Department, on
the American Peace Commission at
Versailles in 1919, and on the Sec-
retariat of the League of Nations at
Geneva are well known. He has also
acted as legal adviser for the Inter-

American embassy at Paris.
Dr. Hudson is a native of Missouri

In accordance with the annual cus-
tom Ann Arbor will observe the na-
tional forest week activities next
week. The National Forest week this
year will differ in that protection,
production, and efficient use of the
forests will be emphasized instead of
just pr'otection of1 the forests as in
previous years. In his Forest Week
Proclamation President Calvin Cool-
idge said:
"For several years the nation has
observed Forest Protection Week. It
is fitting that this observance be en-
larged upon. We have too freely
spent the rich and magnificent gift
that nature has bestowed on us. In
hour eagerness touse that gift we
have stripped our forests; we have
permitted fires to lay waste and de-
your them; we have all too often des-
troyed the young growth and the seed
from which new forests might spring.
And though we already feel the first
grip of timber shortage, we have
barely begun to save and restore."
In observance of National Forest

Week several of the Ann Arbor clubs
plan to hold their meetings on the
Saginaw Forest plantation where the
Faculty of the Forestry department
will explain how timber is grown and
how fast it grows.

ran the distance in 7 minutes 42 sec-
Lord Burghley, who defeated a
capable field of American performers
in the 400-metre hurdles, proved un-
able to cope with American speed at
a shorter distance and over the high
barriers. Woods, of Butler ,and Scat-
tergood, of Princeton, defeated him in
the first heat ofthe 120-yard hurdles.
For a time it was Porritt's day. The
British invader, a sprinter from New
Zealand, delighted the crowd of more
than 30,000 with. his victory in the
second half of the 100 yard dash.
The field for the finals included
Porritt, MacCready of Princeton,
Hubbard of Michigan, Duello, of the
Army, Cummins of Virginia, Schoon-
maker, of New York university and
Irwin, of Ohio State.
Hubbard proved the snag for the
New Zealander. The Michigan man
was off like a flash and half way
down the stretch l., by kve yards,
but Porritt was gaining speed' an
rushed to the tape only two yards be-
hind. It was a battle that brought
the great assemblage to its feet,
cheering, and both men received ova-
tions. Schoonmaker, of New York
university, took third place. But
Hubbard had to run the distance in
9 4-5 seconds, a fifth of a second
slower than the world's record to win
