Xeklejohn, Sperry, and Fitch
Deliver Addresses At


Non-denominational and open to all
students and members of the faculty
of the University, a series of four
University services to be held at 11
o'clock on four consecutive Sunday
mornings under the auspices of the
Student council will be opened next
Sunday by Dr. Alexander Meiklejohn,
former president of Amherst college
and now a member of the faculty of
the University of Wisconsin.
These convocations, held in Hill
auditorium, are intended to give stu-
dents the opportuity of hearing men
who are nationally known speak on
topics of religious interest, with the
provision, if the four this spring are
successful, of making a Sunday morn-'
ing convocation a weekly event next
year. Following Dr. Meiklejohn will
be Willard L. Sperry, dean of the Har-
vard school of divinity. Albert Parker
Fitch, formerly a professor at Am-
herst, who resigned with Dr. Meikle-
john when he quit the presidency of
that college on account of his liberal
ideas in education, and who is now at
Carleton college, President Burton's
alma mater, on May 16, and Bishop
Francis J. McConnell of Pittsburgh,
Pa., on May 23.
The musical features of the serv-i
ices will include one solo, the singing
of one hymn by the congregation, and
the* playing of tihe organ before the
service opens and at the close of the
address. A collection to aid in de-
fraying the expense of bringing the
speaker to Ann Arbor will also be
taken. The auditorium will be suit-
able decorated for the services.
Xl~tters to all the 'organized groupsf
on the campus, explaining the pur-
pose of the services and requesting
their support in the matter, were
aailed by the council committee yes-
terday. These letters suggested that
fraternities and sororities attend at
least the first of the convocations in
bodies. Final arrangements for the
initial service next Sunday will be
coinpleted by the Student council
Wednesday night.
The decision to limit attendance to
students of the University and mem-
bers of the faculty was made in or-
der to make them strictly University
affairs and avoid cutting into the at-
tendance of townspeople at the reg-
ular church services also held at 11
o'clock on Sunday.

Hawkins Outdistances Field In Ham-
mer Throw; Northrup Takes Third
In Javelli Event

(By Associated Press and Special)
PHILADELPHIA, April 24. - Two
firsts, two thirds and a fifth were the
spoils of the Michigan invasion of the
East today. While the seven men who
wore the Maize and Blue were unable
to account for a relay victory, they
took a first in the 100 yard dash, Ifirst
in the hammer throw, third in the
javelin, third in the pole vault and
fifth in the mile relay.
The decisive defeat of Frank Hussey
of Boston college, national 100 yard
champion coupled with the creation of
two new carnival relay records set up
today in performances which brought
the two-day Pennsylvania relay carn-
val to a close which was exciting but
lacking for the most part, the bril-
liance which has characterized the
meet in recent years.
Close to 40,000 spectators at Frank-
lin field saw Hussey sustain one of
the worst defeats ,of his career, start-
ing badly and finishing only fourth in
the finals of the 100 yard dash special
which was won by Hester, Michigan
star in 10 1-10 seconds.
The 100 yard dash which was sche-
duled as a duel between Hester of
Michigan and Hussey of Boston col-
lege, turned into an easy victory for
the diminutive Michigan sprinter.
While the starting gun found the Bos-
ton star flat on his mark, Hester was
off like a flash, and at 50 yards was
two whole yards in the lead. At the
finish he was a yard in the lead and
going strong. The race was run in the
face of a stiff breeze, which slowed the
time to 10 1-10 second
Harry Ha'wkins, s ar Wo ver4'
hammer thrower, was declared winner
in that event this morning with a
heave of 152 feet 3 9-16 inches. In
winning the last event Hawkins de-
feated Taylor of Pennsylvania, win-
ner of the event last year, and Gates
of Princeton, both of whom are con-
sidered the class of the Eastern ham-
mer throwers. Hawkins heaved the
weight four times over 145 feet al-
though his best throw was his last
in the trials. The Michigan star en-
tered the meet handicapped by lack
of practice and was not figured as a
dangerous contender, his best mark
prior to this meet being 144 feet 10
inches, made at the Michigan-IllnOIs
dual meet last year.
Phil Northrup showed that he has
not entirely recovered from his recent
operation in this afternoon's compe-
tition, which found him below his best
form. His toss of 186 feet in the
javelin throw is considerably less tha
his best mark, and netted a third
place, while last year Northrup won
the event. The Wolverine star failed
at 12 feet 6 inches in the pole vault,
appearing to have been tired out by
his competition in the javelin throw.
Nevertheless he attempted the broad
jump after gaining a third in the pole
vault, but failed to place.
The Wolverine mile relay team,
which was expected to give George-
town a battle for first place, never
stood a chance when it was found that
they had drawn 13th lane with all the
Sstrong teams in the first four lanes.
The start of the race found Ohlheiser,
lead-off man, crowded against the
brick wall on the outside of the track,
in tenth and last lane, three teams
having scratched.
Conclusion of the major college re-
lays found Penn State and Columbia
monopolizing honors which In the past
'few years have gone chiefly to George-
town and Boston college. Penn State
hung up two victories by defeating
Pennsylvania in the 400 yard shuttle

climax with a sensational victory over
