Daily Will Publlsh Special Section!
Containing Photographs And
Records Of Candidates
Voting on the experiment college
councils, which were temporarily
formed a year ago, the Student coun-
cil, at its meeting last night, conclud-
ed that the project has beet. unsuc-
cessful. With the action taken last
night, the council automatically re-
verts to its former size, consisting of
three senior and three junior repre-
sentatives, the managing editor of The
Daily, the president of the Union, the
president of the Student Christian as-
sociation, and. a representative of the
Board in Control of Athletics, in ad-
dition to the council president.
At the time the college council plan
was sugested, last spring, it was de-
cided to establish the councils in each
of the five major colleges and schools
of the University, the president of
each becoming an ex-officio member
of the general council, on a trial basis
over the period of a year. A vote, de-
termining the success or failure of the
venture, was to be taken this spring,
the general council as it now exists
being abandoned in case the college
council plan was considered desira-
Work Is Not Sufficient
In deciding that the experiment has
failed, the council concluded that s
although the presidents of the college
councils have given invaluable ser-
vice to the general organization dur-
ing the year, there is not sufficient
work to warant a separate council in
each' college and school.
James Boyer, '27, chairman of the
Spring games, which will be held May
6 and 7, reported last night that the
events this year between the fresh-i
man and sophomore classes will be
similar to those in the past. The tug-
of-war over the Huron river will be
held on Friday afternoon, as usual,
with the rope-tying contest, obstacle,
race, and cane 'spree on SaturdayE
morning. The first year men will meet
at the Union the week preceding the .
games for the purpose of electing
their captain, while the sophomore
men will also assemble during that
week for the same purpose.
Preliminary to the annual spring
elections, The Daily, this year, will
devote a special section to photo-
graphs and records of the candidates
in order to assist students in iden-
tifying prospective incumbents.
To Publish Official Ballot
Pictures of all candidates for pres-
idential offices, as well as their com-
plete -campus activity records, will be
published, along with the records of
certain other office seekers, and the

I Swelling Waters Of 'Nssissippi Peril
Homes In Lower Part Of Valley;
Defenders Redouble Efforts
(By Associated Press)
MEMPHIS, Tenn., April 20.-The
menace of flood disaster in the lower
Mississippi valley grew tonight as
Arkansas felt anew the grip of the
swelling waters and guardians of de-
fenses in another state along the river
doubled their efforts to save lifes and
Hurdling the levee at Clarendon,
Ark., the White river early today
surged through that town of 3,000 in-
I habitants and changed its streets into
foaming whirlpools where boats, men,
animals and swaying houses were
tossed about in disorder. Reports of
loss of life to tardy residents of the
lower sections went unconfirmed until
reief agencies could explore the
stricken town.
Driven by a break in the Arkansas
river northwest of Little Rock ,the
flood charged down in a diminishing
wall upon the) town of Levy and
moved on to widen the inundated area
in North t Little Rock, across the
stream from the capital.
The Little Rock municipal water
plant was abandoned late today. Three
or four days supply of water re-
mained in the reservoir.
Along the hundred mile St. Francis
river basin, between New Madrid, Mo.,
and Helena, Ark., inhabitants of a
score of towns were making prepara-
tions for the advancing waters which
moved southward through a crevass
to the St. Johns bayou levee.
States affected: Arkansas, Missouri.
Mississippi, and to lesser extent Illi-
nois, Kentucky, Tennessee and Louisi-
Estimated area inundated: 4,000,000
acres, or 6,250 square miles.
Estimated homeless: 50,000 per-
Persons affected: 100,000 directly or
Lives lost: impossible estimate,
more than dozen known dead.
Property loss: not estimated, but
far into the millions of dollars.
Persons homeless in Arkansas: up-

(By Associated Press)
MEX ICO CITY, April 20.-Between
50 and 100 helpless passengers were
slaughte.red by a great force of revo-
lutionaries or bandits who held up a
Guadalajara-Mexico City train last
night after killing the train's entire
escort of 50 soldiers. The bandits
drenched the coaches with gasoline
and kerosene and set them afire and
as the terrified passengers tried fran-
tically to climb out of the winodws to
escape from the incinerator, they
were shot down. The slaughter took
place near Limon, state of Jalisco.
Of recent outrages this is declared
to have been the worst in Mexican
territory. The attack came almost
without warning. Suddenly, the train
was halted while passing through a
desolate territory, and the attack,
some reports have it, was begun by

Three Innings End With Wolverine
Runners Left On Third Sack;
itchers Stage Duel
Inability to bunch their hits in the
pinches proved the stumbling block
for the Wolverines in the opening of
the Big Ten Conference schedule and
forced them to submit to a 2 to 1 de-
feat by the Purdue university nine
yesterday afternoon on the Ferry field
Michigan played on a par with the
Purcue team in the field and secured
eight hits to the seven gained by the
Boilermakers, but where unable to
score when once the men were on the
bases. The Wolverines left 11 men
on the bases, while only four members
of the Purdue nine were stranded. In
the first, second, fourth, and seventh
innings the Michigan team was retired
with a man on third base.
The game was above par for college
baseball ,both teams displaying fine
fielding ability. Purdue's outfield,
especially Cooper in left field, was
largely responsible for Michigan's in-
ability to score. Often the Wolver-
ines drove the ball far out into the
field, only to have the Purdue. men
cover the flies, which at times looked
like certain home runs. Purdue's in-
field performed admirably, Wise, the
catcherv being guilty of the only mis-
play of his team. No errors were
counted against the Wolverines, Kubi-
cek's close play in the sixth inning be-
ing counted as a hit.
Wolverines Outhit Purdue
Don Miller, the star pitcher of thie
Michigan nine, staged a pitching duel
with Maxton, the ace of the Purdue
squad. Miller allowed seven hits,
struck out six men, passed one man,
and hit one batter. The Wolverines
made eight hits, secured four bases
on balls. Davis and Morse were given
free passes to first base, both bet"
hit by pitched balls. In the fifth in-
ning, Miller retired the Purdue team
in, one two three order, striking out
three men. In the eighth and ninth
innings only three batters faced Mil-
ler, the Boilermakers being cut off in
the ninth by a sensational double
After Purdue had been retired in
easy fashion, Michigan threatened to
score when Weintraub reached first
base on a scratch single, stole second
base and went to third on Wise's over-
throw. Puckelwartz struck - out and
Oosterbaan hit a high fly which Kem-
mer caught for the third out, leaving
Weintraub on third.
Again in the second a man reached
third when Gilbert, Wolverine right
fielder, tripled with two out, but Da-
vis grounded out. In the fourth, Ku-
bicek opened with a single, and ad-
vanced to second when Maxton issued
a base on balls to Gilbert. On Da-
vis' out, the runners each advanced
a base, but Miller failed to bring them
home when he struck out.
Mich-igan scored its lone run in the
fifth inning when Morse, pinch hitting
for Loos, made a three base hit to the
tennis courts and crossed the plate
on Puckelwartz's single.
Purdue scored both its runs in the
sixth frame. Byle was favored with
a base on balls, and Rabe singled,
sending Lyle to second. Cooper drove
a hard grounder past Kubicek, scor-
ing both of the runners.
The box score:

didates running for president of the
Student council, the Union, the Stu-
dent Christian association, and the
Oratorical association, are requested

ords to Thomas Cavanaugh, '27IL,

Regisrtation, which must be nade

The council is arranging a new me-j
thod of voting at the campus polls
this year in an effort to prevent all
campaigning at such time.
