Prof. Slosson and Dorothy Detzler To
Argue "Is War Consistent
With Christianity?"
"Is War Consistent with Christian-

between Prof. Preston W. Slosson of
the history department and Dorothy
Detzler, national secretary of the,
Women's International League for
Peace and Freedom, at 4:30 o'clock
tomorrow in Newberry hall auditori-
um. The debate will mark the first"
public meeting to be sponsored by the'
local chapter of the War Resisters'
league, a national organization that
pledges its members never to take
part in defensive or offensive warfare
or to aid in any way the carrying on
of such wars. Prof. W. W. Denton of
the mathematics department will pre-,

with the University, was connected1
with the state department during the
administration of President Wilson,

to Negotiate Peace. He is a memberj
of the League of Nations Non-partisan
league and has spoken for the cessa-
tion of war, but his views are said to
differ radically from the pacifistic
arguments that are to be advanced
by his opponent.

Displaying even greater strength
than the most ardent Gopher en-
thusiast dared to predict, Minnesota's
swimming team last night won the
Western Conference title in the cham-
pionship meet which was held at the
Union pool, with a point total of 411
points, compared to 33 for Michigan
and 17 for Wisconsin.
The winners displayed a well bal-
anced team, placing men in every
event with the exception of the 440
yard free style, winning three indi-
vidual events and both the 200 yard
free style and 300 yard medley relays.
Michigan's swimmers placed in every
stars. -
Take Two Firsts
Although Michigan did not win the
meet, Coach Mann's natators amassed
a point total in last night's meet that
comes within five points of the total
num'ber of points that Wolverine
swimmers have made in Conference
meets since they entered the Confer-
ecce four years ago. This meet also
marks the first time in the history of
swimming here that Michigan has ever
taken two first places in a champion-
ship meet.
Up until the 100 yard free style race,
the lead had seesawed back and forth
between Minnesota and Michigan, but
Moody's and Sam Hill's victory over
Darnall in that event gave the Goph-
ers a lead that they never relinquished.
Paul Samson of Michigan was the
individual star of the meet with 10
points in the 220 and 440, a two point
margin over Moody of Minnesota, who
wvn the 100 yard free style and placed
second to Samson in the 220. Although
Herschberger of Wisconsin scored on-
ly five points in the individual point
,scoring, he proved himself the most
able dashman in the meet by his re-
'anrkable showing in the 50 yard dash
which he won, and his performance as
.anchor man on the Badger relay quar-
Darnall Nosed Out
1n the first event on the program,
the 200 yard relay, Darnall of Michi-
gau, swimming anchor man on the
Michigan quartet, was nosed out at the
finish by less than two inches by Sam
Hill of Minnesota. Darnall came back
however in the 50 yard free style and
placed second to Herschberger of Wis-
consin over Hill, who placed third.
Michigan's hopes received a severe
blow in the quarter-mile race when
Fred Dunakin, who has been rated as
one of the best 440 men in the Con-
ference, failed to place in his favorite
event. He staged a comeback in the
220 yard race, however, and placedl
fourth in a fast field.
Mickey Carter, one of Coach Mann's
proteges when Mann coached at the Du-
luth Boat club, contributed materially
to his former tutor's defeat when he
won first place in the fancy dive
Starrett, of Michigan, who was sixth
in the qualifying round advanced twc
places to fourth place.

Miss Caris Beatty of Detroit, a
eight year old swimming protege of

Clergyman's Work With Sherwood
Eddy Has Provided Hine With
Much Material For Study
As the speaker on the Uiiversity
service program, Dr. Reinhold Nie-
buhr, clergyman and writer, will talk
on "The Sons of Zion and the Sons of
Greece" at 7:30 o'clock tonight in Hill
auditorium. Several summers spent
in Europe with Sherwood Eddy have
provided Dr. Niebuhr with material
fors his stu1dy of the attitu&-'-thie"
modern student toward Christianity.
Dr. Neibuhr recently conducted the
annual convocation at the University
of Wisconsin and delivered the main
address. He is one of the secretaries
of the Fellowship for a Christian So-
cial Order and has spent the last few
summers in Europe as their represen-
Dr. Niebuhr is now associated with
Sherwood Eddy in a campaign to bring
before the students of American col-
leges and universities the results of
these study tours in Europe. He was
one of the few ' older men who was
chosen to speak at the Interdenomi-
national student conference which
was held in Evanston last Christmas
In a recent issue of the Atlantic
Monthly, he states "in our paradise ofi
national security and univ'ersal opu-
lence, we have not yet felt the enor-
mity of the sins of greed and violence
which are corrupting our civilization
and which seem to prove the impot-
ence of religion." lie further believes
that society is completely secularized
and moves on by its own forces, which
are only remotely affected by religion.
Last February, Dr. Niebuhr was the
principal speaker at the joint confer-
ence of Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A.
groups of all the New England col-
leges, at which time he spoke on
"Needs of Modern Civilization."
This Sunday's program will be con-
ducted by members of the Student
council; Kenneth Kellar, '26, presi-
dent of that organization, will be the
presiding officer and Will introduce
Dr. Niebuhr. Scripture passages will

announcements will be made by

Florence Austral, English dramatic
soprano, will be one of the singers.
After winning her way to prominence
in her native land, she came to this
country a year ago and appeared on
two occasions in the leading role at
the Cincinnati festival and in the same
capacity at the North Shore festival
at Evanston, Ill. Here, with little ad-
vance publicity, she attracted great
attention and was obliged to sing sev-
eral encores. Just before her return
to Great Britain a contract was signed
for her appearance in Ann Arbor to
sing the role of Elsa in the concert
periormance of Lohengrin, as the clos-
ing number of the series on Saturday
Another event of the Festival will
be furnished by Howard Hanson, who
is called one of the greatest young
musicians of the (lay. Trained largely
in America, with supplementary train-
ing in Europe, in his early twenty's he
became recognized as a figure of such
promise that the Eastman School of
Music chose him as their musical di-
rector. His "Lament for Beowulf"
will be given its world premiere under
thr baton of the composer himself.
Two instrumentalists will partici-

young men: Albert Spaulding and

heat and in the final.
Freyberg Places Second
Michigan broke into the score col-T
umn in the very first race when Capt.
Dick Freyberg took second place in
the mile run, forcing Kennedy of OhioI
State to set a new Conference mark
for the event, the Buckeye star win-
ning in 4 minutes, 23 2-5 seconds.
Freyberg drew the third lane in
the first row and took third place go-
ing around the first turn, with Ken-
nedy in the lead. Freyberg kept his
place untilthe fifth lap, when he went
into second place. The two leaders
opened up quite a lead and finished
the 'race by lapping four or five run-
The Michigan captain made his bid
for first at the start of the final lap,
but Kennedy possessed too much re-
serve strength. Jung and Reinke of
Michigan failed to place, both men
being forced to start the race in the
rear of the crowd.
Hester Wins Dash,
Hester, brilliant Wolverine sprinter,j
followed Freyberg's feat by capturing
first honors in the. 50 yard dash,
equalling the Big Ten record for the
distance, his time being :05 2-5.
Yarnell of Illinois took second place,
from Kelly of Michigan, with Beatty
of Iowa fourth.
All four of the Wolverine sprinters
qualified for the semi-finals, Hester,
Kelly and Stirling winning their
heats, while Voelker took second in
his heat. The two latter runners lost
by inches in their respective semi-
final heats.
Kennedy of Wisconsin upset the
dope in the quarter mile event when
he breasted the tape ahead of Cuhel,
of Iowa, Feinsinger, of Michigan, and
Roberts, of Iowa, in :514-5. The two
Hawkeye runnters were slated to fight
it out for first honors, but Kennedy'
shot away at the gun and took the
lead which he never relinquished. ;
Feinsinger got off to a poor start,
and was forced to run fourth all the
way, but he spurted going around the
final turn and passed Roberts for
third honors.
Werner Breaks World's Mark
Chick Werner, of Illinois, and Phin
Guthrie, of Ohio State who ran a dead
heat in the 75 yard high hurdles at
the Illinois relays two weeks ago,
settled their controversy tonight when
the Illinois athlete beat Guthrie to
the tape in the 65 high hurdle race
establishing a new woTld's record of
:07 5-10. The former record of :073-5
seconds was made by Carl Christiern-
son of the Newark, N. J., A. C., com-
peting in New York city two years ago
this month.
Voelker of Michigan showed con-j
siderable strength when he finished1
behind the two leaders, taking third
place. McGinnis of Wisconsin took]
fourth place. Guthrie and Werner
