Wolverines Conceded About 10 Points
Over Closest Rivals, Iowa
And Illini Teams
Favored to win their third consec-
utive Big Ten track and field cham-
pionship and the fourth within a per-
iod of five years, Coach Stephen J.-
Farrell's band of 23 Wolverines will
compete today in the preliminaries at
Camp Randall field in Madison, Wis-
consin, apparently only slightly wor-
ried over the threat expected from
Illinois and hardly considering Iowa
and Wisconsin as possibilities.
Since the meet inaugural in 1901
Michigan has succeeded in winning
the title 10 times, this despite the
fact that (uring the 1906-1917 inter-
val they were withdpawn from Con-
ference competition. Coach Harry
Gill's Illini stand, second with eight
victories throughout the whole period.
In the number of first places wonl
again the Wolverines are ranked first
with 78, but Chicago and Illinois trail
in close order with 75 and 67. A
grand total of 778 points rates the In-
dians well in the van of Michigan
with. 605, however.
The proverbial "dope bucket" allows,
Capt. Phil Northrop and his mates a
margin of at least 10 points over their
closest rivals by dusk tomorrow, and
Hester, Ketz, Schravesand, Northrop,j
Lovette, and Hornberger should aver-
age one first place each on the basis
of past performances.
Illinois presents a great group of
middle distance runners and sufficient
strength in the weights and jumps to
meritdconsideration, while Iowa is ex-
pected to garner enough points in the
hurdles, relay, shorter sprints and in
the field to outscoreWisconsin and
McGinnis, indoor champions, by a
small margin. '
Just what the favorites will total
depends considerably upon how big
a gash some of the outsiders and
their aces will cut into the scoring
column. And before tomorrow Indi-
ana, Purdue, Chicago, Ohio, North-
western, and Minnesota will be just
as much "outsiders" as Grinnell,
Ames, Oberlin, Michigan State, and
the host of others who were prohibit-
ed from competing in the Conference
meet when the classic was made a
closed affair last year. .
Perhaps the only record that is a.t
all sure to go by the boards is the
mark of 47 feet 1-2 inch set by Lyon,
Illinois, last year when he displaced
the old mark by Ralph Rose, Michi-
gan, of 47 feet 1-4 inch way back in
1904. Lyon has repeatedly pushed the
brass ball beyond that distance this1
season and in the Michigan dual meet
three weeks ago shoved one out 48
feet 10 7-8 inches.
Northrop's great leap last week
against Ohio, 24 feet 3-4 inch in the'
broad jump, although fully a foot
short of Hubbard's Conference mark,
makes him the favorite to win that
title for Michigan for the eighth time
since Carl Johnson accomplished the
feat in 1918. Hster should win the
dash event again, an event which
Michigan'has2not failed to win since
Wittman's 1923 triumph.,
Paul Endriss, '28, Varsity cheer-
leader, last night announced the

cheerleading squad for next year. It!
will be composed of two groups, jun-
ior assistants and sophomore tryouts,
of which the latter group will meet
next fall before the football season'
starts. Members will be chosen from
the sophomores by last year's leaders
who are: William Warrick, '27, Jack
Hedrick, '28, Robert Leland, '28, Far-
num Buckingham, '28, and Paul En-
driss, '28. The junior assistants are:
Emmett Brown, '29, Harry Lee, '29,
Ralph Topp, '29, and Robert Adams,
'29. The sophomore tryouts are: Gost,

Austin Chamberlain Asserts Ministers
Would Have Resigned If Measure
Had Been Defeated
(By Associated Press)
LONDON, May 26.--The govern-
ment's decision to break off diplomatic
and trade relations with Russia was
approved by the House of Commons
tonight after an exciting debate, when
the House by a vote of 357 to 111
adopted a motion to this effect moved
by Gervais Rentoul, Conservative.
His motion was in the, following
"This House, while appreciating the
long forebearance of his Majesty's
government and their many efforts to
maintain friendly diplomatic relations
with the Soviet republic in the face
of acute provocations, applauds their
decision to withdraw diplomatic priv-
ileges which have been so gravely
abused, while at the same time put-
ting no obstacle in the way of
legitimate trading relations with Rus-
This outcome was already made
certain early in the debate, when Sir
Austen Chamberlain, foreign secre-
tary, announced the government's de-
cision to treat the labor motion, call-
ing the ministerial policy in question
and demanding an inquiry by a select
committee into all the circumstances
before such a grave decision was tak-
en; as a vote of censure. Further,
the foreign secretary intimated that
unless the ministers obtained a vote
of confidence in their policy toward
'Russia, it would be their duty to re-
'sign and appeal to the country for a
J. R. Clynes, putting the Labor case
before the House, contended that Rus-
sia should not be condemned unheard
and that the policy the government
was pursuing would deprive Great
Britain of valuable trade, but would
not abate Russian propaganda. On
the contrary he said, it would be a
first-class advertisement for Commun-
The Labor resolution was defeated
after a long discussion by a vote of
367 to 118.
Much play was made by the speak-
ers on the both sides on t e alleged
10,000,000 pounds credit which was
cancelled owing to the Arcos raid. Sir
Austen Chamberlain brushed this
aside, declaring that a year ago M.
Rakozfky, former Soviet charge at
London, came to him with talk of evn
many more millions of orders.
"The govepnment," the foreign
minister declared, "has striven to the
utmost to maintain good relations with
Russia, until they became a hollow
sham, and have forced its forebear-
ance to a point where its further
pursuit would be mere weakness."
Asserting that the government was
content to rest its case upon the do-
uments already disclosed, the secre-
tary said that nevertheless the gov-
ernment had a mass of further infor-
mation in its possession. As an exam-
ple of this he went on:
"The House may have heard that the
other day there was a demonstration
in front of the British embassy at
I Washington. That should be connect-
ed with instructions received from
Russia that there should be demon-
strations of anti-British feeling in
front of the British embassies and
He gave many similar incidents of
alleged Soviet action to foment anti-
foreign trouble in China, adding that
lie could lay the documents involved
before Parliament. Recalling that
many grave warnings had been given
the Soviet government not only by
the present Brtish government but
by the preceding Labor government
that continuance of anti-British pro-
paganda must sooner or later render
abrogation of the British trade agree-
Imeat, the foreign secretary said:
"In the face of all these warnings
the Soviet government and their
agents went on with the activities of

which we had complained."
