'IundquIst"s Orchestra Will Furnish
Musc; 'Bates Announced As
Five hundred visiting fathers and
their sons will banquet in the assem-
bly hall of the Union tonight in by
far the largest assemblage ever held
here on l'athers' Day. The fourth
annual dinner will be attended by
practically double the number of a
year ago.
Many fathers arrived in Ann Arbor
yesterday in time to attend the Cap
night ceremonies with their sons at
Sleepy Hollow. The remainder will
'arrive this morning and early this
No systematic tours have been ar-
ranged for this morning inasmuch as
the committee in charge of the day's
program believed it will be more de-
sirable for sons to conduct their
fathers about the campus as they
choose. Tennis matches between the
Varsity reserve and freshman teams
have been scheduled for Ferry field
at 9:30 o'clock this morning.
Several .athletic events are on the
afternoon's program. The spring foot-
' ball season will come to a close with
a game at Ferry field between Harry'
Kipke's Blue team and Tom Edwards'
Green eleven at 2:30 o'clock. At the
same hour a track meet will be held
between the Varsity reserve and
freshman teams at Ferry field. Mem-.
hers of the Varsity 'and freshman
swimming teams will engage in a ten-
mile relay in the Union pool at 1:30
Members of the Fathers' Day com-
mittee will be in the main lobby of
the Union during the day for the pur-
pose of supplying any information de-
sired relative to the program.
The banquet will be opened in the
assembly hall promptly at 5:30 o'clock.
'Carl Lundquist, '27, and his orchestra
will play during the meal.
Paul Starrett, '27A, chairman of the
Union committee, will open the pro-
gram by introducing Dean Henry M.
Bates of the Law school who will act
in the capacity of toastmaster.
Dean Edmund E. Day of the School
of Business Administration will give
the first address of the evening, rep-
resenting the faculty. "Self-determi-
nation As a Policy of Youth" is the
subject he has chosen.
An entertainment act will follow
with Kenneth Midgley, '28L, giving a
number of selections on the xylo-
William L. Diener, '26, president of
the Union, will speak on "A Greet-
ing From Michigan's Sons," as the
representative of the student body for
the occasion.
"What a Father Expects His Son to
Accomplish at Michigan" will be the
main address of the evening which
will be given by former Congressman
'0. J. Larson, '96L, of Duluth, Minn.
Mr. Larson spoke at his class reunion
exercises here two years ago.
All of the 500 tickets for the ban-
quet have been sold, an equal num-
ber for fathers and sons, the last few
being disposed of late yesterday.
Most of the fathers are planning to
be here until tomorrow and will at-
tend the convocation at Hill audi-
torium at 11 o'clock. Dr. Albert Park-
er Fitch of Carleton college, who re-
signed from Amherst with Dr. Alex-
ander Meiklejohn, will be the speaker.

Will Open Senior
Ball Ticket Sale
As a result of an incomplete an-
nouncement, seniors holding accept-
ance notices for tickets to the Senior
ball which will be held nevt Friday
in the Union ballroom will be given
an additional opportunity from 2 to 5
o'clock on Monday to get their tickets
for the affair upon the presentation
of that notice and $5. After Monday
any tickets left will be put on sale
to the general senior class. Novel pro-
grams enclosed in white leather cov-
ers with a black seal have been order-
ed for the affair; each page of the
party record will have on it a zinc
etching of some senior event, such as
Cane day, Swing-Out, or Commence-
ment. They will be ready for distri-
bution on the night of the party.

Last Notice Was Reported At Point
Barrow; May ]ave Landed
At Wainwright
(By Associated Press)}
BREMERTON, Wash., May 14.-The
dirigible Norge, which Tuesday passed
over the North Pole and yesterday
reached the northern tip of North
America after sailing across the sky
from rim to rim of the Arctic ocean,
today remained lost to the world.
Every possible radio channel of
communication, the navy radio sta-
tion of the Puget Sound navy yard
here, announced, was covered. This
station was in. constant communica-
tion with a navy radio station at Cor-
dova, Alaska, and Cordova with seven
navy and army radio stations in a
favorable position to communicate
with the Norge, which has wireless.
Besides listening to these seven
Cordova hears everything that passes
through the air over the North Pacific
ocean, northe'ostern Siberia, the
Alaska-Siberian part of the Arctic
ocean and Alaska. It is unlikely that
the Norge had sent signals and Cor-
dova has not obtained them and trans-
mitted to Bremerton.
The last word that the dirigible was
in the air was a mysterious message
lpicked up by the naval radio compass
station at Hinchinbrook island, near
Cordova, Alaska, saying that the
Norge had passed Point Barrow,
northern tip of Alaska, at 9 a. in.,
Thursday, Pacific coast time. This
message could not be verified, how-
Another report had been that the
adirigible was sighted at Point Barrow
at 1:30 a. m., Eastern Standard time,
Messages from the Norge were
heard Wednesday night and early
Thursday, the navy radio station at
St. Paul's island, Alaska, reported,
but since that time the dirigible's ra-
dio has been silent.
The Norge is long overdue at Nome.
Among opinions heard as to the
whereabouts of the Norge were:
Roald Amundsen, her commander,
flew her to Wainwright, on the north-
western Alaska coast of the Arctic
Amundsen refueled his airship at
Wainwright, where he had a cache of
gasoline left from an attempt to fly
over the Pole in an aeroplane in 1923,
and hurried back north to seek land
in the ocean north of Alaska. Those
venturing opinion remarked that
Amundsen was fond of fooling the
world when he gets away from land
or into a wilderness.
The Norge was deflated at Wain-
wright, that village having more than
enough folk to draw her to the
ground, and will be shipped out of the
states when navigation of the Arctic
ocean opens in July.
Few were heard to opine that the
Norge had met with disaster. Opti-
mists pointed to reports from Wash-
ington and Seattle of good weather
in all of the regions where it was con-
sidered likely the Norge might be.
The optimists cited a rapid, trouble-
less passage from Spitzbergen to Point
I Barrow, northern tip of Alaska.

Goverument Must Take Responsibility
In Failure Of Miners And Owners
To Agree, Says Prime Minister
(By Associated Press)
LONDON, May 14. - The heavy
clouds which lowered over Great
Britain's industrial world last night
cleared today, and the present pros-
pect is that next Monday most of the
industries which were compelled to
suspend operations because of the
general strike, will be working again,
with the possible exception of the
mines. Likewise, there is greater
hopefulness than ever that a satisfac-
tory solution of the mining difficulty
will be reached before long.
The outstanding event of the day .
was the announcement of the govern-
ment's decision that, since a mutual 1
agreement between the miners and
mine owners was impossible if they
were permitted to come together of
their own accord, it must act on its
own responsibility if any solution was
to be found. Premier Baldwin, there-
fore, reduced the recommendation of
the royal coal commission to succinct
form and submitted them to the par-
ties with an understanding to help
the industry to the extent of 3,000,000
pounds and to pass, if possible, in the
present session of parliament the
necessary legislation to put the recom-
mendation into effect.
Then general situation also im-
proved rapidly. An agreement was=
reached between the railway mana-
gers and the railroad men's unions for
reinstatement of the men, although
the unions had to make certain con-
cessions. Arrangements also were
made for the resumption of work on
the tramways, the underground tubes,
and the omnibuses. = Here, doubtless,
there will be considerable difficult de-
tails to settle about the disposition of
volunteer workers who aided the gov-
ernment and who have Premier Bald-
win's pledge that they will not suf-
fer for their loyalty.
The only important industry still in
Ian unsettled state is that of the
printers. Prolonged conferences were
held today between the printer's rep-
resentatives and the newspaper own-
ers. These meetings were adjourned
until tomorrow, no agreement having
been reached. Hence the newspapers
are still appearing in skeleton form.
Michigan Wins

3rulliolland, '99L, Speaking For Alum.
ni Says World Expects Somethling
Good From College Men
While the huge bonfire In Sleepy
Hollow burned itself out, and th
class of '29 snakedanced around the
blazing pile, another class of freh-
men passed into the ranks of oopho-
mores and the other classes advanced
one step in their University status.
For the twenty-first time, Cap night,
one of Michigan's most respected tra-
ditions, was celebrated last night.
Promptly at 7:30 o'clock, the Var-
sity band led the undergraduate pro-
cession into the Hollow and the class-
es took their customary places in the
natural amphitheater. The program
was opened with the singing of th
Victors and cheers by the assembled
students. Kenneth Kellar, '26, retii
ing president of the Student council;
prefaced his introduction of the first
speaker with a few remarks to the
freshmen, and then introduced Wil-
liam Cudlip, '26L, who as the student
representative was the first speaker
on the program.
Following Cudlip's talk, Shirley W.
Smith, secretary of the . University,
gave a short address as representa-
tive of the faculty. His remarks were
mainly directed to the graduating men,
advising them to look ahead and strive
to attain the best that they saw, and
that best would bring a larger best
to them.
Elton E. Wieman, assistant director
of intercollegiate athletics, who was
next introduced, presented the "M"
blankets to graduating .athletes who
had won Varsity letters for two yeAis
in one sport. The following 27 sen-
ors received the only public award
which Michigan grants its athletes:
R. George Babcock, Robert Brown,
Roy H. Callahan, iRchard H. Crane,
Richard F. Doyle, Fred D. Dunnigan,
Tom Edwards, Nathan Feinsinger,
Fred Feely, Richard Freyberg, John
Gow, Charles Grube, Harry Hawkins;
William Herrnstein, Harold Johnson,
Charles Munz, .Richard Papanguth,
Fred Parker, Dan Peterman, Irwin
Reynolds, Ray Smith, Harold Steele,,
James Vose, Harlan Walter, Lloyd
Weitzel, Manfred Whittingham, and
Steven Wilson. The final speaker on
the program was Frank L. Mulholland,
'99L, representative of the allmni body
Immediately following, the conclu-
sion of Mr. Mulholland's address, th4
bonfire was lit and the assemblage
sang the traditional "Where, oh
where are the verdant freshmen". A$
each verse was sung, the correspond-
ing class arose. Fllowing this, the
freshmen formed their snake dance
around the fire, tossing in their gray
"pots" and thereby entering the ranks
of the sophomore class.
At the conclusion of the ceremonies
in Sleepy Hollow, the undergraduate
body proceeded to Hill auditorium.
where a free movie was shown
through the courtesy' of the Butte-
field interests, owners of the Majestc
and Arcade theaters.
"World peace can come about alone
through the cosmopolitan citizen's in-
fluence toward world understanding,"

Dean Hugh Cabot of the Medical
school told members of the Cosmo-
politan club at their annual spring
banquet last night at the Union. "We
always dislike most the person we do
not really know. He is always the
villain." Through such an orga.niza-
tion as the Cosmopolitan club, the
speaker said, could the understanding
and friendship and world outlook best
come to prevent hatreds and wars
from arising.
Nur M. Malik, 27M, was re-elected
president of Cosmopolitan club for the
coming year Thursday. Cecilia Do-
lenga, '27, was chosen vice-president;
Hazel Dobson, spec., secretary; R. F.
Howrani, '29D, student treasurer;
Prof. Hibbard S. Busby of the engi-
neering school, faculty treasurer; and
Mrs. A. D. Moore, Lester P. Kauff-
mann, '28, and Willem J. Prinsloo,
'27E, to the board of directors.
