Ten years ago today the news-
papers of the nation emblazoned inl
their largest headlin's he fact that
the United States had formally de-
clared war on Germany. The wholej
country responded at once, men en-
listing and industry preparing for
what was one of the greatest crises
of history. The universities of the;
country were not backward in their!
response and the campuses of the var- I
ious institutions became scenes of ac-1
tion-the youth of the nation were
preparing for its first taste of the;
grim' reality of real war.
At the University of Michigan thej
day gf the declaration was marked'
by a huge parade of volunteer stu-
dents. Plans began at once for the
mobilization of student groups and the{
various fraternities and house clubs
began a period of strenuous drilling
after each meal and for several hoursi
before sunset each day.1
One week after the declaration of'
war the Seventh and Eighth naval
units, composed largely of University
students, were ordered to mobilize.
Three weeks later they were ordered;
to leave Ann Arbor and the night be-
fore they departed there was a huge,

1800 men drilling each day on Ferry
The whole campus was drawn into

Nominee For Superintendent Of Pub-
lie Instruction Is Only Party
Defeat In Light Vote
(By Associated Press)
DETROIT, April 5-The sluggish
tide of a light vote swept all Repub-
lican candidates for state offices to
victory by the costumary majorities
in Michigan's off-year biennial spring l
elections yesterday. Scaricely a rever-
sal occurred in the partisan election
throughout the state. With the singleI
exception of -WebstersH.hPearce, of
}Mt. Pleasant, who was the success-I
fjl nominee of the Republican party
foy superintendent of public instruc"
Lion all candidates were reelected. Lo-,
cal issues in the municipalities resul-
ed in pollings approximately equal to
that in the March primaries but rural
interest was quiet.
The outcome of the metroriolitan
area amendment, single non-partisan
issue of the state, ballot, remained in
doubt, tonight. A slowly mounting op-
position vote was being returned from'
rural counties which served to coun-
teract the early lead of three to one.
registered in Wayne, Kent, Ionia, Shi-I
awassee, Clinton, Hillsdale, and otherl
populous communities.;
CHICAGO, April 5-William Hale
"Big Bill' Thompson, Republican ma-
yor of Chicago from 1915 to 1923, to-
day was elected to that office for the
third time.;
Thompson, who conducted his cam-
paign with the slogan of Ameri'ai
First," won over Mayor William E.
Dever, Democratic incumbent in one
of the bitterest and one of the most
closely contested elections in Chi-
cago's history. Dr. John Dill Robert-
so, who ran as an independent, of-
fered no serious opposition.
On the basis of returns from 2,000
of the city's 2384 precincts, Thomp-
son was returned a winner by upward
of 70,000 votes.

Appearing for their second formal
concert of the year, the Varsity band
will give the annual Easter program I
tonight in Hill auditorium, led by
Norman J. Larson who will direct his
first spring program with the band.
Tonight's concert will be the last in- I
door program of the band this year,
and shortly after spring recess cam-
pus concerts will be given regularly..
Following the custom of past presen-
tations, the concert will be free to the
students and public.;
College songs, marches, solos and
specialty numbers make up the pro-
gra of ten selections to be presented
tonight. Opening with the "Vicors"
the band will give selections whichi
include two overtures, "The Bridali
Rose" and Lustspiel Overture." Mar-
shall Byrn, Grad., will give a cornet
solo, "My Regards" and B. Lorain
1 Norton, School of Music, will present
three vocal solos, accompanied on the
piano by Ray Faulkner, '26.
The trombone quartet will give a}
number that has been arranged by
Walter C. Welke, School of Music, who
is head of the trombone section of the
band. The program will be conclud-
ed with the playing of the "Yellow and
Blue" in which the audience will be
urged to join in singing. The pro-
gram tonight will be similar to the
nrozram used during the concert tour

that the ticket sale for that affair has
been very brisk, greater in fact, thant
in any other year since the Ball's in-

of Guy Lombardo's orchestra, whichI
has been engaged to play for the
