Paint-Smeared Uniderclassmen Battle
Before Thousands; Bands Lead
March to Ferry Field


Sophomores of the class of '28 fought
their way to a 4-1 victory over the
freshmen amid the cheers of thou-
sands of upperclassmen and visitors
for the Ohio game at Ferry field yes-
terday morning. The second year men
captured their points by winning the
pillow fight and the flag rush, the
yearlings taking the one point awarded
in the cane spree.
Led by their respectivebands, and
'meared with the green and red paint
of the two classes, the rival under-
classmen faced each other across the'
field while the two bands paraded for

Sophomores Take Lead
The sophomores started off with a
rush when they took both the first
two heats of the pillow fight, making
a third and deciding heat unneces-
sary. One sophomore toppled over his
opponent in the first heat, giving his
class the lead, as both freshmen and
sophomores managed to stay on the
other two horses, and consequently=
tied. In the second heat two freshmen3
lost their seats and only one sopoho-
more, giving '28 the event and two
The freshmen won their one point
when they captured four canes in the
cane spree, to three for the sopho-
mores and three tied. The contest was
close, first a freshman and then aj
sophomore turning in his cane to Earl
Blaser, '27, who directed the games1
for the Student Council. The yearl-
ings had a lead of one cane, with,
three battles still in progress, when
the ten minute period ended.
Flag Rush Decides
The final event, the flag rush, was
the deciding factor, as its two points;
would have given either class a vic-i
tory. The superior numbers of the
freshmen availed nothing before the
organized rush of the sophomores, who
captured the first freshman flag twot
minutes after the opening gun was
fired. Walking over the shoulders of
the closely-packed freshmen, they
reached the pole and climbed to the1
flag before the men of '29 could
spread out.
Time was taken out while members
of the council, "M" men, and mem-
bers of the junior honorary societies,
who acted as referees, dragged the
sophomores back out of the melee.
The freshmen were better organized
when they met the second sophomore
rush, but the second flag, taking with
it the event and the games, fell in
less than five minutes of fighting. As
the second year class had already won,
4-1, no effort was made to capture
the last pole.
Following the march up State
street, the freshmen were photo-
graphed on the steps of Angell hall
while the victorious sophomores had
their pictures taken in front of Hill

Judge Advocate Is Relieved In Order
To Be In Position To Testify
Before Court
WASHINGTON, Nov. 14.-Capt.
Paul Foley was released today on his
request as. judge advocate of the
Shenandoah naval court of inquiry,
which is to investigate charges
brought against him by Mrs. Mar-
garet Ross Lansdowne, before the
Mitchell court martial.
Secretary Wilbur appointed in his
place Major Henry Leonard, a retired
officer of the Marine corps, who will
conduct the inquiry into Mrs. Lans-
downe's accusation that Captain Foley
sought to influence the testimony she
gave to the naval court in connection
with the accident to the Shenandoah
which resulted in the death of her
husband and thirteen other officers
and men.
The court had been called into ses-
sion Monday to begin this inquiry,
but whether it will proceed at that
time is problematical. Major Leonard
may ask for a continuance in order
that he may acquaint himself with
the vast body of testimony which the
court took at Lakehurst, New Jersey,
and in Washington in late September
and early October.!
In his letter to Secretary Wilbur
asking to be relieved of duty as judge
advocate, Captain Foley, after reciting
the charges made by Mrs. Lansdowne
and the refusal of the Mitchell court
martial to hear him yesterday said,
"I now request to be relieved of duty
as judge advocate of the Shenandoah
to permit this court to proceed in its
own way and without embarrassment
to itself with the further investiga-
tions of this new phase of the inquiry
and in order also that I may be in a
position to be called before that court
as an interested party should the
court deem it advisable."
WASHINGTON, Nov. 14.-The trea-
sury has sent no new proposal to
Paris in connection with the negotia-
tions for funding the French debt to
the United States.
Under-Secretary Winston declared
tonight, when advised of reports from
Paris that Ambassador Herrick had
made new propositions to Premier
Painleve, that negotiations were still
open but that no steps had been taken
by the American debt commission
since it submitted the five year tem-
porary funding arrangement to former
Finance Minister Caillaux and the
French mission.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 14.-The treas-
ury tonight held a signed agreement
for the funding of Italy's $2,042,000,000
war debt to the United States and an
order on the Italian treasury for $5,-
000,000 as the first payment under
the terms of the pact.
President Coolidge affixed his sig-
nature to the document.

Stands Sing As
Bandf Is Silent
At Ohio Game
When the band stopped at the end
of the first verse of "The Yellow and
the Blue," spectators at the Ohio
State game yesterday were made
{ keenly aware of the enthusiasm that
inspired the body of student singers.
The new maneuver of allowing the
singing to continue without the mu-
sic was adopted in order to bring
home to Michigan supporters a re-1
alization of their common association
as reflected in the singing of the col-
lege song.
Another innovation was the utiliza-
tion of the University Glee club tol
lead the group singing instead of the
older practice of a single leader. The
members of the club from their posi-
tion on the field with the band were
able to lend a provocative volume that
drew the best from the Michigan

Molenda Plunges Through Line
For Lone Touchdown After
Flora Blocks Punt
By Joseph Kruger
Although unsuccessful in effecting her usual strong forward pass at-
tack, Michigan battled her way to a 10-0 victory over the strong invading
eleven of Ohio State yesterday afternoon at Ferry field and continued in
her march to the Western Conference gridiron title. Another capacity
crowd of 47,000 persons jammed their way into every available bit of space
in the field.
Ohio, unable to launch any semblance of an attack, failed to penetrate
into Michigan territory, and was forced to play a strictly defensive game.
But this the Buckeyes did exceedingly well, for, although the Yostmer

Gain Through Line
But while the Wolverines failed to
gain consistently with an aerial at-
tack, they did succeed in making con-
siderable yardage through the line,
and it was in the role of line smasher
that Bo Molenda starred for the Maize
and Blue.
The Wolverine fullback was the of-
fensive star of the day, tearing the
strong Buckeye forward wall to shreds
as he shot his bulky frame through
the mass of players for gain after
gain. He scored the only touchdown
of the day when he took the ball over
from the one yard line in the first
quarter, after Flora's block of Wend-
ler's punt had placed Michigan in a
position to score.
lolenda Hits Line
Carrying the ball 22 times, Molenda
smashed his way for a total of 90
yards, which is slightly better than an
average of four yards for each play.
Michigan threatened to score early in
the first quarter when Molenda broke
through the left side of the line the
first time he carried the ball and con1-
tinued on his way for 23 yards before
he was tackled. Oosterbaan then
made a pretty shoestring catch. of
Friedman's pass for a nine yard gain.
On five successive plays through
the line, Molenda carried the ball to
Ohio State's nine yard line when an
incompleted pass gave Ohio posses-
sion of the ball. Thus, almost single

erally expected as a Michigan cham-
pionship, except for the fact that the
