Expect Glenville High School 0(
Cleveland To Give Detroit
School Hard Run
More than 260 high school track ath-
letes, representing 26 schools, will
gather in the Yost field house this af-
ternoon and tonight for the second
annual Michigan Interscholastic in-'
door track and field meet to be run
under the auspices of the Athletic As-
sociation. The preliminaries will be-
gin at 1 o'clock this afternoon, with
the drawings for the heats in the track
events, while the finals will be held
at 7:30 o'clock tonight.
The pick of scholastic track pe-
formers will be represented here from
four states, Ohio, Illinois, and In-
diana having schools entered besides
those from all parts of Michigan, with
the result that many new records may
be set.
Colt Sars Return
Detroit Northwestern, winner of
of last year's meet by a large margin,
is again entered, and many of the Colt
stars will perform on the field house
track once more. In capturing first
place in the meet last year, North-
western amassed a total of 51 1-2
points which was more than thre
times the number that Cass Tech,
which placed second, secured. Thisi
year the Colts have already won the1
indoor city championship, and are
favorites in the meet tomorrow.

the only Indiana institutions that will
participate in the meet, and these
three have only small entries. Illi-

by Austin high school of Chicago and
Thornton high school of Harvey. The
latter has but one entry, while Aus-
tin will be represented by 15 track-
sters. In the meet last year Austin
finished fourth with seven points.

Presenting two performances today,
" Why Marry?" the Masques produ-
tion of the Jesse Lynch Williams com-
edy, will close its run at the Mimes
theater. The performance tonight
which was added at the last minute
1 because of the greaet demand for
seats, will bring the total to five ap-
pearances, marking the longest con-
secutive run of any legitimate student
production in Ann Arbor.-
Seats still remain for both perform-
ances today, according to those in
charge of the ticket sale.
The matinee is being given pri-

marily to allow the members of the
cast of the Junior Girls' play to at-
tend, but the seat sale is open to the
public. This will be the first matinee
!given in Mimes theater, and those in
charge believe that by presenting it,
they are enabling many students to
witness the performance who could
not do so otherwise.
The evening performance will close
early enough to permit attendance at
dances. Reserved seats at 50 and 75
cents for both of the performances to-
day may be ordered by phoning the
box office of the Mimes theater any
time today, and will be held until a
half hour before the curtain.

[ore Authority At Washington Would
Injure Stability Of Government,
Michigan Team Argues
MADISON, Wis., March 19--
Wisconsin' defeated the Michigan
debate tea m in the Midwest league
here tonight. The defeat places
the three teanms in the league in a
tie for first place.
Michigan wasq victorious over Illi-
iois last night in a debate at Hill
auditorium on the subject, "Resolved,
hat the tendency to centralize power
mnd responsibility in the federal gov-
mnment should be opposed." The
dichigan team, composed of Robert
. Miller, '27, James T. Herald, '28,
nd Albert Stern, '27L, upheld the,
flirmative of the question and differ-
Ad with their Illini opponents, Eliza-
>eth Turnell, '28, Herbert T. Owen, '27,
md C. Kennefth Thies, '27, on the dis-
.ribution of power between the fed-
mal and state governments.
The debaters from Illinois favored a
ventral power strong to govern the
vhole country in every respect, while
he local team expressed fear lest
iving the government at Washington
lower to legislate in personal and
ocal matters would detract from its
tability and dignity.
Lone Judge Decides
The decision in favor of the Michi-
an team was cast by tbke single
udge, Professor Emerson W. Miller of
Wooster, O., while Paul Blanshard,
14, visiting in Ann Arbor after a trip
round the world, presided.
The debate was held under the aus-
ices of the Midwest debate league of
which Michigan, Illinois, and Wiscon-
in are members.
Miller opened the contest, describ-
ng the historical background of the
entralization tendency. He main-
:ained that it had been the intention
f the authors of the constitution to
inaugurate a dual system of govern-
rnent in which the states and the fed-
eral government were integral parts.
Miss Turnell than opened the nega-
tive arguments. Like her opponent
she went into the historical side of
the question, pointing out that the
tendency which the negative was fa-
voring had arisen because of eco-
nomic and natural changes in the
The affirmative case was resumed
by Herald, who dwelt on the failure
of the centralized enforcement of such
acts as the prohibition amendment,
and upon the inability of a: body lo-
cated at Washington to impose stand-
ard laws on the people of Texas and
Vermont alike.
Owen, the second negative speaker,
discussed the necessity of standa'rd
education throughout the country.
Quotes Coolidge
The aflirmative case was closed by
Stern, who based his speech on Cool-
idge's statement that "What we need
is ijot more federal government, but
stronger local government." The quo-
tation, he said, stated the position of
the affirmative.
Thies, in the closing constructive
speech, stated that many crisis were
liable to arise in the future tha~t
would demand strong action front
Washington. He pointed to the trou-
bles in agriculture and industry, and
to the wide discrepancies in the laws
of the several states.

In the rebuttals the debaters de-
voted their time to questioning the
practicability of the two plans.

Grip Epidemic!
Dr. Warren E. Forsythe, director of
the IHealth service, announced late
yesterday that the grippe situation
was materially the same. While there
has been no increase in either the
number of cases or in the severeness
of the disease, there is no evidence
that relief is in sight. New cases
continue to develop at the rate of 50,
a day.
Doctor Forsythe repeated his warn-
ing to those suffering- with the dis-
ease not to try to get up before th y
have thoroughly recovered, reminding
them that many students have ex-
perienced relapses from leaving their
beds too soon. le advises the vic-
tims to stay in bed, eating as little
as possibile and drinking plenty of
water. Fruit juices and lemonade are
! also valuable. Grippe is highly con-

I persons, the victims of the epidemic
should isolate themselves as much as

The extreme war communism has
broken down, in the opinion of Mr.
Blanshard, and in its place there is a
modified system of socialism and capi-
