Heavy Rains Force Cancellation
Four of Eight Games Scheduled
On Southern Training Trip


Michigan's baseball team, undefeat-
ed thus far this season, will open its
Big Ten Conference schedule by play-
ing the Purdue university nine at'
4:05 o'clock this afternoon on the
Ferry field diamond. Student cou-
pons may be used for admittance.
In spite of the fact that the Wol-
verines were able to play only four
of the eight games on the southern
trip, Coach Fisher believes that he has
sorted out the best men on his squad
and that they will be able to give a
good account of themselves against
the strong Purdue team. Heavy rains
in the South forced the cancellation
of the game with Kentucky and the
two game series with Vanderbilt. On
the homeward journey the Michigan
team was to have played the Univer-
sity of Cincinnati, but again the
game had to be called off on account
of heavy showers Monday morning.
However, the Wolverines took ad-
vantage of the ideal weather condi-
tions yesterday afternoon and went
through a long drill to iron out the
bad features in the team play. In
the four games played on the spring
tour, the Wolverines were guilty of.
16 errors.
Miller Will Pitch
At the close of the practice yester-
day, Coach Fisher announced thiat
he would use Don Miller, pitching ace
of the 1926 championship team,
against the Boilermakers. Miller has
been suffering with a sore arm for the
past 10 days, but the Coach believes it
has limbered up enough to warrant
using his best hurler in the opening
Conference game. Against the Uni-
versity of Georgia, Miller proved he
was in good condition, holding the
soiherners to five hits. If he should
weaken against Purdue, Ruetz and
Neblung will be in reserve to take
the mound. I
Purdue will probably use Maxton,
star of last year's team which tied
nth Illinois for third place in the
Conference, - to oppose Miller. If
Maxton, who injured his back early
in the season, is not in shape for the
assignment, McHargue is the second
choice for pitcher.
Announces Line-up
Davis will start as catcher for
Michigan, with Benny Oosterbaan at
first base, Kubicek at second and
Weintraub at third. Coach Fisher
said that Loos and Morse would prob-
ably alternate at shortstop. In the.
practice on Ferry field, Weintraub
displayed fine fielding form, repeat-,
edly making sensational stops.
Captain Puckelwartz and Corriden,
both showed power at bat in the pre-
season games, and are certain to start
in center and left fields, respectively.-
Louis Gilbert will cover right field.
Purdue has shown great hitting;
strength, having a trio of sluggers in
Captain Wise, Cooper, and Plock.In
the last two. game series on its pr-
Conference list, Purdue gave DePauw
university a bad beating, hitting at
will and fielding well.I
Harry Tillotson, business manager
of the Athletic association, announced
that student coupons may be used for
admission, but admonished all stu-
dents to use their own books. "If stu-
dents will notice the statement in the,
back of their books regarding the
transfer of pass books, they will save
themselves and the Athletic associa-
tion serious trouble," Mr. Tillotson
stated. I
The game will start promptly at
4:05 o'clock and will finish earlier
than the games played last year. The
players will be urged to take and
leave the field as quickly as possible;
so as to finish the game before the
dinner hour.-
Registrations for tryouts for chorus
parts in next year's Union opera will
be held from May 1 to 5 in the Mimes

"It has been reported to the state
department," he continued in exposi-
tionsof his point, "that American
goods freighted on foreign vessels are
never handled in quite the same way
as are the goods of the nation of the
flag over the vessel. Warehousing,
stevedoring, and delivering of goods
are likely to be much more satisfac-
tory for Americans when performed
by Americans.";
Lack of a practical merchant ma-
rine has placed this country in many
serious holes, the senator declared.
"We found that we, as a nation, had I
only 15 ships in overseps trade when
the war came. In the recent upheavals
in China' the Dollar line had to be
commandeered to rescue Americans
whose lives were in danger, due to the
absolute absence of any auxiliary
Were it not for the interment of sev-
eral German ships tied up at Amer-
ican docks when the United States
entered the World war, America
would have been unable to transport
its troops. "One of these ships, the
Leviathan, carried 275,000 of our sol-
diers across the ocean. It may well
be that that one ship saved the Allies
from defeat."I
"Freight charges increased 2,0001
per cent because of the demands plac-
ed upon the ships of neutral nations
and other vessels under foreign flags.
It has been estimated that in one
year the American people paid in in-
creased and excessive freight charges
$600,000," Senator Copeland declared.
Many cases in which the navy was
forced to depend upon a foreign auxi-
liary fleet for supplies while on world
cruises were cited by the speaker,
among them the tour of President
Roosevelt's "White Squadron" and I
Dewey's battle fleet in Manila.t
"Three years ago we had a tre-
mendous crop off wheat. We couldn't
sell it in this country. At a result,
the United States shipping board was
forced to fit up some of its old ships
at the cost of $1,000,000 and transport
the foodstuffs for sale abroad. The I
emergency would never have been
created if our marine had been funs-
tioning." Senator Copeland remarked.
Emphasizing that "it is not possible
for the United States to compete with
foreign bottoms unless some sort of
definite financial aid is provided fori
them," the speaker cited in conclusion
three possible methods of encourag-I
ing the growth and development of a
merchant marine.
The first, the provision of naval
subventions using a part of thel
naval appropriation for the "upkeepI
or assistance of certain merchant
vessels which may be necessary as
auxiliaries of the navy," is a method
being used by Great Britain, com-
mander of the greatest fleet of mer-
chant ships afloat.
I"The second way," Dr. Copelandj
continued, "is by favorable mail con-!
tracts. In all probability this is the
least offensive way of providing the
assistance our merchant marine must ;
have if it is to live. As a matter of
fact, this aid could be given at oncet
and without added expense to the gov-.I
ernment, if there were vessels of suit-
able speed on certain lines now in

Representatives of First National
pictures will be in Ann Arbor tomor-
row to make tests of Michigan men as
a part of a campaign conducted by the
company in connection with College
Humor magazine to recruit college
men for the films.
J. S. Helsdon, manager of the Ar-
cade theater, is co-operating with the
film company, and those men who de-
sire to enter the competition are re-
quested to leave their names with him
today. Ten men will be selected at
Michigan after the screening test, who
will then be compared with similar
delegation from other universities,
and a final group of ten will be se-
lected. These men, who will be nam-
ed by June 1, will be sent to Califor-
nia to engage in actual movie work
for an eight weeks period.
The building where the tests will be
made will be announced tomorrow.
Tivird Program Of Annual May Series
Will Include Madame Luboshutz
As Well As Barre Hill
Announcement of additional fea-
tures for the third program of the
thirty-fourth annual May Festival
which will be held in Hill audi-
torium May 18, 19, 20, and 21,
has been made by the officials
in charge. This third concert on
Friday afternoon, will have as its
main attraction Mme. Lea Luboshutz,
violinist, as previously announced,
who will be assisted by the Chicago
Symphony orchestra under the di-
rection of Frederick Stock, and the
children's chorus, conducted by
Joseph Maddy.
In addition, Barre Hill, former stu-
dent in the University School of
Music and soloist with the Chicago
and Detroit Symphony orchestras,
has been obtained to sing the baritone
solos in the cantata, "Voyages of
Arion," written by Earl V. More,
director of the festival. The can-
tata will be presented in its entirety
by the children's chorus, recruited
from the children of the public schools
who have been trained by the super-
visor of music and his assistants. The
chorus has been a feature of the May
Festival for the last ten years.
Mr. Hill is well known to Ann Arbor
audiences for his work during the
time he was in school, when he ap-
peared in the annual Union operas
and in numerous concerts. He is a
baritone, and his solos will be the
only 'ones in the cantata.
Another feature of the third day's
concert which is of interest to local
audiences is the appearance of the
Misses Elizabeth Davies, Ethel Hau-
ser, and of Dalies Frantz, students in
the School of Music, in a three-piano
number supported by the symphony
orchestra, the "Siciliano and Finale
from Concerto in D minor", by Bach.
All three are pupils of Guy Maier.'
Mr. Frantz has been considered to be
the "find" of the School of Music for
this year.
Lea Luboshutz, the Russian violin-
ist, will present three groups of se-
lections during the afternoon in-
eluding the Overture "Secret of Su-
zanne" by Wolf Ferrari. and the "Ad-
agio and Finale from G minor con-
certo" by Bruch. Madame Luboshutz
will be heard this year with such or-I
ganizations as the Syracuse Sym-
phony orchestra, the Cincinnati Sym-
phony orchestra and will appear in
various recitals throughout the coun-

Professor Of Cornell Medical School
Outlines Development Of Science
Of Metabolic Energy
Action, as demonstrated in the lab-
oratory, of the different food sub-
stances in the production of body hefit,
formed the thesis of the lecture given
last night in Natural Science auditori-
um by Prof. Graham Lusk, of the
physiology department of the Cornell
university Medical school. Professor
Lusk, who is also a director of. the
Russell Sage Institute of Pathology
at Bellevue hospital in New York, is
a recognized world authority on nu-
trition, calorimetry, and related sub-
jects, and is generally known as the
man who developed the science of en-
ergy metabolism. He was a member
of the Inter-Allied Food commission
during the World war, and in that po-
sition put into practice the practical
side of the work in which he is chiefly
interested. His topic, as announced,
was "Energy Production in Mechan-
ical Work."
Processes and apparatus which have
been used from time to time in de-
termining and investigating the meta-
bolic background in the study of mus-
cular work were shown with slides
during the lecture. A peculiar appara-
tus was constructed at Bellevue hos-
pital in order to determine the oxygen
consumption and carbon dioxide
elimination, and men and dogs were
used in experiments. The results, as
shown by Professor Lusk' through
charts and diagrams, demonstrated
the fact that surface area of the body
used had little to do with the measure
of the basal metalbolism.
The speaker told of the beginnings
of the work in the late nineteenth
century, when a budegt of $150 was
set aside at Yale university for the
purpose, and said that it was from
this alone that the science as it is
known today originated. He spoke
briefly of the characteristic metabolic
attribute of the heart to form fats

School children were among the
chief sufferers in today's storm. Three

fragmentary reports.
The storm~, for the most part, struck

Besides the loss of life, heavy pro-
perty damage was done, but the dam-
