Weintraub hits Triple in First And'
Scores On Long Sacrifice Fly
By Michigan Captain

Dr. Alfred Ernest Stearns, head-
master of Phillips Andover academy,
Andover, Mass., will be the second
speaker of the third student convoca-
tion series next Sunday morning in .

A graduate of Amherst college, Dr.I
Stearns Ws an instructor in history
at Hill school, Pottstown, Pa., before
becomingvice-principal of that ins ti-
tution a few years after his gradua-
tion. Since 1903 he has been at Phillips
Andover where he has gained the rep-
utation of an authority in the matter'
of the education of students in inter-
mediate schools. It is said he has re-
efusd several offers from Amherst and
Dartmouth colleges in order to con-
tinue in his present field.
Dr. Stearns has spoken frequently
throughout the East. It will be his
first visit to Ann Arbor. He has con-

A home run by Captain Puckel-1
wartz, in the sixth inning, with As-I
beck on base, was the cause of Michi-
gan's 3 to 1 victory over West Vir-
ginia yesterdayafternoon. The
Southerners had tied the score in
the fifth, and from the way Asbeck


and Harsanyi were hurling it looked
as though many innings would pass
before one team would be able to
gain the advantage, but Puckelwartz
had different ideas.
It was the second victory in two
days for the Wolverines, and the
,sixth consecutive practice game in
which Michigan has gainedsthe ver-
dict, yet a Conference contest has yet
to be won.
The pitching of Asbeck was one of
the highlights of the game. In only
one inning, the fifth, did he have any
trouble, and in that frame West Vir-
ginia combined two singles and a
base on balls to get their lone score.
At all other times he seemed to be
In complete control of the situation,
and disposed of the enemy one, two,
three, in four of the nine innings. He
struck out five men and only walked
two, but neither were instrumental in
the run.
Harsanyi of West Virginia did his
best to make a pitchers' battle of the
game, allowing only six hits, fanning
three, and walking none. Two of the
blows were fatal, however, Wein-
traub's triple and Puckelwartzs home
run spelling defeat for the visitors.
The scoring started in Michigan's
half of the first. After Loos had been
retired Weintraub poled a long fly to
left for three bases, and came home
on Puckelwartz's sacrifice. Inciden-
tally, Puckelwartz was responsible
for all of Michigan's scores.
West Virginia got their first hit in
the fourth when Hodges singled after
one was out. He made his way to
third by virtue of a stolen base and
an error, but died there when Lewis
flied out.I
In the fifth West Virginia tied the
score. With one out Vacheresse
singled, went to third on a wild pitch,
and. scored when Harsanyi sigled to'
left center. Asbeck was pulled out of
this hole by a fast double play, Ku-
bicek to Loos to Oosterbaan on
Phillip's grounder.
It was not to remain thus. In the
Michigan sixth Asbeck, first up, hit
the first pitch to center. Loos and
Weintraub wpre retired, and then
Puckelwartz decided he wanted an
early dinner and hit the ball far over
the left fielder's head. He scored
standing up.
The Southerners died one, two,
three in the seventh,, but it looked as
though there might be trouble in the
eighth. With two gone Hand singled
and Asbeck chose this spot to give
his last pass to Hodges. However, the
potential rally was ended when Mor-
rison rolled out. There was no ex-
citement after this, except that As-
beck ended the game as he began it,'
with a strikeout.
Both offensively and defensively
Michigan looked better than at any
time previous on the home diamond.
Three errors were made, but they did
no damage. Also, the Wolverines
came through in the pinches, a thing
which they have failed to do in the

Deliberate Flooding Will Be Startedj
In Effort To Save New Orleans I
- From Wall Of Water
- /
(By Associated Press)
MEMPHIS, April 27-From the low-
lands of southeastern Louisiana to
the highlands of central Arkansas
new caravans today joined the ar-I
mies of refugees in the march in the
face of floods or threat of floods.
Hundreds moved out of St. Bernard'
and Plaquimine parishes, carrying
household and others possessions, and
abandoned homes and farms to be de-
liberately flooded in an effort to save
New Orleans from the wall of water
bearing down upon it from the up-
per Mississippi valley.
Army engineers still were doubtful
whether the sacrifice to be made by
the people of southeastern Louisiana
with the breaking of the levee at
Poyers at noon Friday and the loos-
ening of vast volumes of flood waters
would save the Cresent City.
"Every effort is being expended
to anticipate this emergency and to
be prepared fully to cope with them!
if and when the need arises," said
Director Baker of the Red Cross.
Rising waters from the Arkansas
reached more towns and villages and
increased the flood death at Arkansas
City and {other cities where large
numbers of refugees were gathered.
NEW ORLEANS, April 27.-Hoping
that relief to the city from the tre-
mendous pressure of the waters yet
to come down the Mississippi river
was assured, New Orleans tonight was
witnessing the spectacular removal ofI
citizens from two parishes from homes!
which have been doomed that the!
largest and proudest city of the SouthI
might be saved.
Meanwhile everyi precaution was
(being taken to prevent any unforseen
action being taken along the levee
line breaking through New Orleans
and up the river. National Guard
troops and tpolice patrolled many
miles of levee throughout the day, not:
only to prevent dynamiting but to1
sound the alarm should any weakness
develop in the levee system.

Chief Alin Will Be To Supply Accu-
rate, Complete Accounts Of Events
Occuring On Campus
Established with the aim of giving
a resume of the news of the week on
the campus to the parents of Michi-
gan students, "The Michigan Weekly,"
newest undergraduate publication,
will join the present group next
September. The new paper, which
was authorized by the Board in Con-
trol on Tuesday night, will be under
the direction of The Daily.
In its initial form The Weekly will
consist of four pages, of four columns
each, and will carry only matter re-
printed from the week's issues of The
Daily. No advertising will be ac-
cepted; no Associated Press stories
will be included. Each issue will
contain the best of the local news
stories, editorials, Campus Opinion,
and sports carried by The Daily dur-
ing the week, together with excerpts
from Toasted Rolls and the Music
and Drama column. The paper will
be published every Monday.
Can Be Easily Supported
Due to the great savings resulting
from the fact that the type used by
The Daily will be available for The
Weekly without any additional cost,
the paper can be supported without
any advertising, and with the low
subscription price of $1.25 per year,
which will include 30 issues. The
paper will circulate only through the
mails, with no sales on the campus.
The reason that The Daily is to un-
dertake this new service is based on
the belief that parents of Michigan
students are vitally interested in
Michigan, and that neither the letters
of their sons and daughters, nor the
accounts of 'events at the University
often falsely exaggerated by them, are
often falsely exagerated by them; are
sufficient to give the parents accu-
rate and complete accounts of Uni-
versity life. The paper will not re-
peat advertisements nor Associated
Press news.
It is believed that' the University
may soon undertake the establishment
of a Michigan Parents' asociation,
modeled after the present Alumni as-
sociation. Parents of students in the
SUniversity are often more vitally in-
terested in the problems on the cam-
pus thandare alumni who have finish-
ed their days in Ann Arbor.

Recommendation To Place General
Ban On Student Automobiles Will
Be Considered By Regents
Further enforcement of the Regents'
automobile ruling was carried out by
the student-faculty committee yester-
day, and more cases of violations will
be handled this afternoon. The situa-
tion is involved, due to the failure of
a large number of student drivers to
cooperate up to the present time, but'
the committee is handling individual
cases as rapidly as possible in an ef-
fort to prove to the administration

Permits to drive were issued yes-
terday to a number of students who
have just brought their cars to Ann

requested to call for their permits at
the office of the dean of students to-
day. Applications of several students,
which could not be granted under the
Regents' rules, were denied. One stu-
dent was placed on probation.
The check of cars on the streets is
being continued, and the office force
of the dean of students utilized to
handle the clerical work necessary to

in Ann Arbor than at any time
since the present strict enforce-
ment was instituted. That is the
first encourgaging sign. The
Daily hopes that within a short
time these lists will find every
student car either registered or
out of operation.'
To try to "beat the rules" and
lose means immediate punish-
ment; to try to "beat the rules"
and succeed means tha~t no stu-
dent cars will be allowed in Sep-
jtember. Students, for their ownI
good, should see to it that the1
present disciplinary measures
are soon made unnecessary be-
cause there will be no students
left who wish to sacrifice the
cause of the majority for their '
j own immediate enjoyment. Com-
plete cooperation is the onlyj
chance of success.

listorian Says Complete History Of
Mining And Industry Of This
State Is Necessary
Prof. Lou E. Chase, former graduate
tudent of sociology and economics at
he University of Michigan, now con-
ected with the Normal school at Mar-
uette, and president of the Michigan
Academy of Sciences, Arts, and Let-
ers, ' outlined in a speech before the
Mlichigan Academy last night the pu-
oses and means of increasing the
cientific researches in local history.
Professor Chase declared that it is
mpossible for any man to write a
istory of the United States without,
he cooperation of men who have done
ocal work. "This lack of coopera-
ion has led to the publishing of many
rrors," he said, "which might have
een avoided through the close co-
peration of local research workers.
Local research work can best be car-
ied on by people who know their field,
nd carry on their investigations in
scientific way." He also mentioned
everal errors, such as that of open-
ng the St. Mary's ship canal, and the
omplete slighting of Michigan's im-
ortant place in the early charcoal
ron manufacturing, both of which
rrors are in books used by many col-
eges throughout the United States.
Mentioning the various fields where
esearch work is necessary, Professor
Chase said: "I am becoming con-
inced that no man can have the de-
ailed information of that kind which

istory. There is need for local check-

uate students of colleges, or members

were given of subjects suitable for

ished in a book which received world
wide attention. It is work like this

gated and published.
"A complete history of the mining
ndustry in this state is lacking, and
this is very necessary," the speaker
said. "I am glad to hear thatsome
work is being started in this direc-
tion." He further stated that too little
