Local Speakers Triumph Over Albion
In Final Contest Sponsored
My Micihigan League
Before a capacity crowd in Hill au-
ditorium last night, the Ann Arborl
high school debating team defeated the'
Albion high school team on the ques-
tion, "Resolved: That the United
States Government Should Own The
Coal Mines."C
Ann Arbor took the affirmative side
while Albion held the negative in the
tenth annual state championship de-
bate of the Michi.gan High School De-
bating league which was organized in
1917 as one of the activities of the
University of Michigan Extension di-
vision. Since its organization, the
league has grown to a membership of
235 schools.
By winning first honors in the cham-
pionship debate the Ann Arbor team
will be awarded a large bronze trophy
by the Extension division. For second
honors Albion receives a smaller
bronze trophy.
Through the cooperation of the De-
troit Free Press each of the six de-
baters in last night's debate receives
a gold watch as a testimonial of in-
dividual merit in debate.
Prof. G. E. Densmore, manager of
the League, introduced Shirley W.
Smith, the presiding officer of the de-
bate. The representatives of the Ann
Arbor affirmative team were: Patrick
Doyle, Franklin Forsythe, and Rolland
Stanger; for Albion: Robert Mc'ul-
loch, Harold Spiegel, and Milton Wil-
Those who acted as judges for last
night's debate were Dr. Charles Mc-

TORONTO, May 11-Sir Frederick
Stutart, director of the Toronto bu-

honor of the first non-stop flight from
Paris to New York.
But the clouds rolled solidy across
the sky, a curtaiin shielding all from
knowledge of whatever grave adven-
ture had befallen the intrepid fliers.
Today the search for the aviators
was fully organized and the United
States coast guard was - practically
turned over to the task of finding
Nungesser and Coli.
Besides that all ships in the North
Atlantic were requested to keep spe-

the liner France received orders on
the other side to alter its usual course
to New York so as to parallel the air
route of the fliers.

The "Columbia" did not take the

permitting, as fresh as though it hadj

Clot In Artery Of Heart Causes Death
Of Graduate School Dean After
Recovery Is expected
Hundreds of friends, incding the members of the faculty, alumni,
and students, yesterday mourned the passing of Dean Alfred H. Lloyd,
of the Graduate school, who died at 3:15 yesterday morning, after being
stricken as he addressed the Senior Swing-Out service Tuesday after-
noon. Tributes came from men with whom he had worked and played,
from students who attended his classes, and from friends in all parts
of the country.
A funeral service for members of the family only will be held
Friday afternoon at the Lloyd home. There will be a service for friends
and students at 4:30 Saturday afternoon at St. Andrews Episcopal church.
Friends are requested not to send flowers.
Dean Lloyd was stricken as he addressed the seniors of the University
at their annual Swing-Out ceremony in Hill auditorium. He was rushed

Yesterday Michigan lost a
great teacher, a great dean, and a
great figure in her life. The
man who for 36 years has taught
and inspired students of this
University, who has headed a
great department, who once guid-
ed the destinies of Michigan
from the office of president, and
who has made her graduate
school one of the finest in the
country, has passed from the
scene of his achievements; andl
from the service of the school
he loved.
His untiring zeal in the admin-
istration of his duties is measur-
ed not only -in the paramount
position which Michigan holds
today in the world of scholar-
ship but in an increasing con-
sciousness of its important des-
tiny which his efforts made mani-
-Not only will Michigan gradu-
ates all over the world feel his
loss immeasurably, but scholars
and those whose hopes are pledg-
ed to the boundless cause of edu-
cation which his efforts ennobled,
must feel his death keenly.
For thirty years, lie gave his
best to the University, and when
called on in moments of emer-
gency he responded with unfail-
ing and unassuming loyalty. It
can truly be said that he lived
and died in the service of the
University of Michigan.
~No appreciation of Dean LloydJ
could be complete without some
mention of his impressive per-
sonality. An inspiring teacher
and a profound scholar, he had
won hundreds of friends among
the faculties, the graduates of
the University and the under-
graduate body by reason of his
unfailing graciousness, his intel-
ligent interest, his broad hu-
mor, and keen sympathy.

University wastennobled by his
works, even as the lives of those

clot which formed in an artery of the
heart. He seemed to be improved at
about 1:30 Wednesday morning but
shortly after this he began to fail
and although the physicians fought to
save him he passed away at 3:15 with
practically no pain. His wife was at
the bedside when the end came.
Survived By Wife And Children
He is survived by the widow, Mar-

Alice Crocker Lloyd and Anna 'Mary

for true education.
The first of these "hallmarks", ac-
cording to th-e speaker, is an honest
doubt regarding the objects in the
world about us. An active interest in
the things of the material world lead
to intellectual productivity, and de-
clared Dr. Coulter, will aid in "reach-
ing the real heart of the matter by
stripping the way of all false creeds
and foibles. In this way we tear do'wn -
the barriers and open new thorough- A
fares to education."
jaAnother "hallmark" that distin-
guishes the true scholar is the breadth
of his foundation, according to the C
speaker. He said the scholar must be
grounded, not alone in his chosen
field, but in many lines, giving the
broadness of Pasteur's knowledge as! dri
an example. It is absolutely essen- ti
tial, he maintained, that the scholar th
be exact, for the man who succeeds to
is compellingly exact. In his opinion re
the United States as a nation, has al- A
most lost this quality which makes for '
intellectual productivity. "Unless dayed
by day you become more meticulous- I w
ly exact, you are losing education,"' he A

given his preparatory- training in the
high school of Westfield, Mass., and
Montclair, N. J., and the St. Johns-
bury academy, St. Johnsbury, Vt.,
from 1878 to 1882.
He entered Harvard university in
1882 and was graduated from there
with his Bachelor's degree in 1886.
Shortly afterwards he entered as a
graduate student and was given his
Master's degree in 1888. He was a
James Walker fellow from Harvard
at the Universities of Berlin and
Heidelberg, 1889-1891. The degree of
Doctor of Philosophy was conferred
on him in 1893.
Formerly At Andover
Professor Lloyd was an instructor
in English and Latin at Phillips aca-
demy, Andover, Mass., in the year 1886-
1887. In 1891 he became an instructor
of Philosophy in thq University of
Michigan and three years later was
made an assistant professor. In 1899
lie was made junior professor and in
1906 a Professor of Philosophy. He
was made dean of the graduate school
in 1915.
