Contest Marks 23rd Baseball Game
Between The Schools; Purple
Strength Unknown'
Michigan 'will battle Northwestern
at 2:30 o'clock this afternoon on Fer-
fy field in her second Conference base-
ball game of the current season. The
Wolverines are anything but down-
hearted because of the Purdue defeat,
and after two days of practice are
bent on redeeming themselves and
getting a fresh start in the chase for
the championship.I
Yesterday afternoon Coach Fisher
was undecided as to who would ap-
pear on the mound for Michigan, but
favored Miler to try his luck once
again, provided his arm is not sore
before game time. In case Miller is'
unable to pitch it is likely that Ruetz
will be the second choice, althoug'
Asbeck may be selected.
The loss of the Purdue game, which,
incidentally, is the first ever dropped
to, the Indiana institution, cannot be
blamed on Miller, regardless from
what angle it is viewed. Any pitcher
that holds the opposition to seven hits',;
and strikes out six men deserves to
win, and had his support shown any I
semblance of a punch at all Michigan l
would have been on the long end of
the score. However,{today is anoth-er

In an atmosphere of pageantry, the
IVarsity band held its third annual
formal dance last night, in the Ma-
sonic Temple ballroom, when over
150 couples danced from 9 o'clock to
l1 o'clock to music furnished by Sey-
mour Simon's Tunesters of Detroit.
The grand march, which was held
shortly after 10 o'clock was led by
Arthur Cook, '27A and Dorothy Dart,
'30, and was announced by Heralds
using the golden trumpets which pre-
cede the band on the football field.
The wearing of band capes by mem-
bers of the Varsity organization, with
the gold lining thrown back during
the grand march made an impressive
showing, set off by the black and
I white of formal dress, and bright eve-
ning gowns. Decorations of yellow
and blue supplemented an elaborate
screen, 20 by 40 feet, upon which was
painted in life colors, and several
times life-sized, a base drum, sup-
ported by uniformed men, and figures
of a drum major, director, a drummer,
and a fife player. This screen hid the
orchestra for the first two dances, and
later the head of the drum was brok-
en, revealing the musicians.

Senator Willis was educated at Ohio
Northern university from which school
he received his master's degree. He
turned to teaching for a time, and for
12 years held the position of profes-
sor of history and economics at his
alma mater .
He was elected a member of the
Ohio House of Representatives in 19001
in which capacity he served two
terms. Ohio Wesleyan, Miami, and
Ohio universities gave him the degree
of LL.B. and he was admitted to the
bar shortly afterwards.
From 1911 to 1915, Senator Willis
was a member of the 62nd and 63rdl
Congress from the eighth Ohio district,
after which he was elected to the gov-
ernorship of his state. He served in
this capacity for two years. He was
elected to his present position as sen-
ator from Ohio in 1921, his term of
office lasting until 1927.

ones to use the auditorium.
Several donations for various pur-
