Ann Arbor Team Defeated For First
Time lDuring Present
Two Detroit teams, Northwestern
and Southeastern won the right to
play in the semi-finals of the Class
A tournament last night at Waterman
gymnasium by defeating their oppon-
ents in evenly contested games before
a crowd that filled every available seat.
In the first class A game North-
western defeated the highly reputed
Ann Arbor team 21 to 18, it being the
first loss of the season for the local
team. Northwestern started the scor-
ing when Burross shot a basket, but
Hagay retaliated by scoring from the
field for Ann Arbor and evening the
count, and Warthell followed with an- I
other counter from the floor giving
a lead which they did not relinquish
until late in the game.
The Ann Arbor team using a long
pass long shot system of play led at
the half by a score of 10 to 8 and in-
creased their lead as the second open-'
ed, at one time holding a lead of six
points, and appearing to have the
game all but won.
In the middle of the second half the
Northwestern team, led by Lovell,
started an offensive which ndtted
them the lead. In this drive the Colts1
mixed long and short passes with tell-i
ing effect, and Barnard assured vic-
tory for the Detroit team when he
registered from close under the bas-1
ket with less than a minute to play.
Lovell and Barnard led their team in i
scoring, each getting six points.
Holland threw a scare into the
ranks of Southeastern, the defending1
champions when they took the lead
at the beginning of the game and held
it most of the time until after the half.
Nettinga of Holland scored from
the floor immediately after the open-]
ing 'whistle blew. Captain Springeri
of Southeastern scored his team's first a
point 'from the foul line, and Four-
nier of Southeastern gave the Detroit
team the lead by scoring from the
floor. Their advantage was short lived,
however as Breen of Holland put his
team in the lead with a basket from1
the field. The Hollanders lead by Net-
tinga and interspersing short shots
with many long shots were leading .it
the half 16 to 13.
Apparently revived by their rest the 1
Southeastern team led by Daniels
evened the score before the opening
whistle died away. The score was,
tied successively at 15 and 17 all after
which Southeastern took the lead by
virtue of their short pass attack which'
seemed to function for the first time
during the game.
Alpena Takes Class D
After being on the short end of a
14-11 score at half time, St. Bernard
of Alpena won from St. Mary of Chel-
sea by a 34-23 margin in the second
game of the class D tournament last
night in Waterman gymnasium.
Hoffman, center on the losing quin-
tet, wa:s second in the individual scor-
ing with six goals and one free throw
for a total of thirteen markers. D.
Bowen, center on the victorious five,
was next with four goals from the
field and one foul for a sum of 9
At the quarter St. Mary stood far in
the lead through the efforts of Tuttle
and Hoffman, holding an 11-5 adan-
tage. By half time the margin was
cut to 14-11, and from then on the
outcome was never in doubt, espe-
cially after Vannini began to cage;

shots from all corners of the court.
At the regional conference on adult
education which met in Chicago Wed-
nesday. upon invitation from the Car-
negie corporation of New York, Dr.
W. D. Henderson, director of the Ex-
tension division, was appointed a
mermber of the National Council on

After returning to Ann Arbor, Dr.
Handerson left again for Chicago yes-
terday to attend a joint meeting of

Action Will Be Taken Next Week On
Five Articles Against Judge
English Of Illinois
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, March 25. - Five
articles of impeachment against Fed-
eral Judge George W. English, of
Illinois, for "high misdemeanors in
office" were laid before the House to-
day by its judiciary committee, and
action on them will be taken next
After redrafting its report several
times in a futile attempt to submit its
recommendations unanimously, the
committee asked and obtained the
consent of the House that three mem-
bers be granted until tomorrow after-
noon to file a minority opposing im-
The indictment presented by the
majority lciharged unwarilanted dis-
barment of attorneys, threats and

a jury in court, ty'rannous attacks on
the liberty of the press, profanity and
other misbehavior, appointment of C.

ruptcy," changes in court rules, con-
nivance in a "bankrupt ring," misuse
of bankruptcy funds, favoritism and

If a majority of the House upholds
the committee in these charges, the
Senate will sit as a court to decide
whether Judge English shall be re-
moved from office. A two-thirds de-
cision will be required in the Senate
for conviction.
The jurist was appointed to his
present position in 1918 by President
Wilson, on the recommendation of
Samuel Gompers, the labor leader. He
is the eleventh federal judge in
American history to be accused of
misconduct in impeachment charges
filed with the House. The committee

and after much debate in executive
The minority report to be submitted
tomorrow will be signed by Repre-
sentatives Bowling, Dem., Alabama,

Dem., North Carolina. 'Represent-
ative Yates, Rep., Illinois, also has
prepared a separate statement of
views holding that there is insufficient
proof of guilt, with Representative
Weller, Dem., New York, undecided
about the action he will take. The
committee lineup is virtually un-
changed since the 14 to 6 vote by
which it originally decided on im-
peachhment proceedings.

Falvin's Play

With the adoption of a somewbat

fering in some respects from the con-
ventional interpretation usually giv-
en it, "Children of the Moon," by Mar-
tion Falvin will be presented for the
last time tonight in University hall
by the play production classes.
Prof. R. D. T. Hollister of the pub-
lic speaking department, director of
the play, has regarded it as the unin-
tentional selfishness of a mother who
has the real welfare of her child at
heart. This differs somewhat from
the usual interpretation, for the play
has been regarded by some as a
"study of insanity" and in this ion-
sideration the play presents a v'om-
pletely original phase.

Prof. Thomas C. Trueblood t
head Of Public Speaking Department
Was Inventor Of Michigan
Prof. Thomas C. Trueblood of the1
public speaking department, who pre-
sented his resignation to the Board of
Regents at their meeting Wednesday f
night has been a member of the Uni-
versity faculty since 1889. Professor
Trueblood, with the exception of Dean
Mortimer E. Cooley of the engineering 1
colleges, is the ranking professor ont
the campus.
Professor Trueblood was born ini
1856 in Salem, Ind., and is a graduate
of Earlham college, Richmond, Ind.-
In 1879 with Prof. Robert I. Fulton
he founded a school of oratory in Kan-t
sas City. From 1884 to 1889 he con-t
ducted lecture courses in public
speaking at Michigan, Ohio Wesleyan,f
Missouri, and Kentucky universities.-
In 1889 he assumed the professorshipt
of public speaking at the Universityr
and since that time has been the or-
ganizer of several oratorical and de-
bating societies. In 1890 he organized {
the Northern Oratorical league, in
1898 the Central Debating league, and
in 1914 the Midwest Debating league.-
Professor Trueblood is the inventorj
of the famous Michigan "locomotive" I
yell. I
Professor Trueblood has for many
years been the director of the Uni-
versity golf teams and for a long
period held the faculty title in both
that sport and tennis.
During his leave of absence in 1909-
1910 he took a lecture tour speaking
at prominent universities and making
five addresses in Tokio and lecturing I
in Manila, India, and Palestine. In
1917 in company with Mrs. Trueblood
he traveled through Australia and
New Zealand. Although Professor I
Trueblood has not announced his plans'
for the future he is considering visit-
ing South America. A dinner has been
arranged in his honor as a part of the
sixty-first meeting of the Michigan I
Schoolmaster's meeting on April 2. I,
"Religious institutions of today have
been built on a faulty foundation," j
declared Dean Edmund V. Day, of the
School of Business Administration
yesterday, before a meeting given un-
der the auspices of the Tolstoy league.
Giving his impressions on the sub-
ject "What is Religion?" Dean Day
asserted that "the tragedy of modern
religion is that it inculcates religious
training in youth, only to have this
training disintegrate in later years.
In emphasizing the fact that religion
ought to be essentially a rational adult
experience, and that the present proc-
ess of religious training should be re-
versed, developing religious experi-
ences after one gains maturity," Dean
Day said that "no rational person can
fail to be religious, for it is only as
I we are rational that we are religious."
. Declaring that in discussing religion
he did not intend to identify it with
I any one creed or denomination, he
1 stated that "religion had for its un-
derlying foundation the necessity of
rational thought. All religions have

With the practical completion of the
list of speakers for the discussion ses-
sion of the Gridiron Knights banquet,
which will be held Tuesday April 6,
in the assembly hall of the Union, the
program for the evening is rapidly
taking definite form. Joseph Kruger,
,26, general chairman of the banquet,
yesterday announced all of the partici-
pants in the debate feature as well as
the topics they will discuss. The list,
although lacking a few speakers, is
largely comprised of prominent mem-
bers of the faculty.
Dean Hugh Cabot of the Medical
school has been assigned the topic
"Abolish the Professor." After a lim-
ited speech, he will be answered by
Ray Alexander, '27L, as a representa-
tive of the student body, on the sub-
ject "Abolish the Student."
Dean Mortimer E. Cooley of the Col-
lege of Engineering and Architecture
will discuss the problem of "Abolish-
ing the Newspaper of Michigan." The
attack on state journalism will be de-
fended by a well-known n1ewspaper-
man whose name will be announced
within a few days.
"Abolish the Examination System"
will be the subject of a talk by Dr.
Frederick Coller, associate professor
of surgery. Prof. Preston Slosson of
the history department will then
answer with arguments for "Retain-
ing the Examination system."
"Abolish Co-education" will be the
plea of Howard Mayberry of the psy-
chology department. Who will defend
the attendance of women at modern
universities, in answer to Mr. May-
beriy, will also be announced later.
One further discussion will be held
on some question of vital interest to
the city of Ann Arbor, which will be
carried on by two prominent local
James Schermerhorn, former editor
of the Detroit Times, has signified his
intentions of taking part in the dis-
cussion session. Definite announce-
ment of his appearance and topic will
be made this week.
As indicated from the topics as-
signed, the discussions will center
about the abolishment and retention
of various institutions of the Univer-
sity, as well as of the state. Although
the subjects are expected to be treat-
ed largely in a serious manner, an n-
limited amount of wit and satire will
undoubtedly prevail in keeping with
the Zpirit of former Gridiron banquets
and the national affair at Washington.
Speakers will ae limited to five min-
ute talks, and any students, faculty
members, or townspeople attending
the banquet will be given opportunity
to make known their views during the
discussion of each subject.
In addition to the discussion session,
there will be other prominent speak-
ers. President Clarence Cook Little
will give the main address of the eve-
ning, to be followed by a talk from
Mayor John Smith of Detroit. Prof.
0. J. Campbell of the English depart-
ment will make the presentation
speech when awarding the traditional
Oil Can near the close of the banquet,
which will be followed by impromptu
remarks from the recipient whose
identity will be unknown until that
It was stated by Kruger yesterday
that every speaker in the discussion
session will be free to say what he
wishes and will not be held responsi-
ble for his remarks. Guests at the
banquet will be required at the be-
ginning of the evening to take oaths
of secrecy to the effect that nothing
said will be repeated later, and all
newspaper reporters present will 'be
restrained from publishing anything
except the general text of each dis-
cussion, quoting no one after the ses-
sion is opened.
Acceptances to the banquet must all
be returned by tomorrow evening, as
the number of guests will be strictly
limited as in past years. Students,
Kruger said, have been particularly
negligent about answering their sum-
mons, and must do so this week if
they expect to attend. Replies from
faculty members, townspeople and

newspapermen, have been coming in
regularly, he stated, indicating that
the attendance this year will be un-

ed with the assistance of Alfred
