Hart And Copeland Turn In Stellar
Performances For Mi3iclhigan;
Gamiiie Unusually Rough
By Blanchard W. Cleland
Gaining its first victory of the year
and at the same time getting revenge
for an earlier defeat, the University
of Michigan hockey sextet came out
on the long end of a 3 to 1 score
over the Michigan State college puck-
men last night in their second meet-
ing of the season. Only a small
crowd witnessed the game, which was
faster and rougher than any played
by the Wolverines thus far this season.
The first Wolverine point was made
during the opening minute of play
when Fisher, new Michigan center,
took the puck on a pass from Cope-
land and shot it past Plaunt, the
State goalie. The only other score
during the first period was made by
Kennedy when he unassistedly
carried the puck within a few feet of
the Michigan goal and rolled an easy
shot past Steve Jones.
Second Period Faster
The second period of play was much
faster than the first and during a mix-
up on the middle of the ice, Hauptli,
veteran State center, received a i
broken nose from the misdirected el-
bow of one of his own team mates.
Hauptli's injury was the only one of
the game, although the play was
rough and was marked by many
crashes into the boards. Penalties
failed to check the game. In the
closing minute of the second frame,
Hart toted the puck the full length of
the ice and shot from mid-ice, the
rubber hitting a State defense man
and bounding to the side. Hart
followed up the puck and took a second
shot and hung up the Wolverines'
second point of the game.t s
Hart's counter ended the scoring
until late in the final period when Cap-
tain Bill Maney passed from back of
the net to Joseph, who pushed the
puck over for Michigan's third and
the last score of the game.i
many Shots On Goal
The Michigan State goal tender was
given plenty of work preventing Fish-
er, Copeland and Hart from scoring
at random'. during the fray. Mort
Fisher, a Varsity man of twoyears
ago, was with the squad for the first
time this year. Although not in good
shape, Fisher held up well through-
out the three periods and in addition
to registering the first Michigan point
proved valuable later in taking the
puck from the Michigan State men.
Hart, in carrying the puck down
the ice, and Copeland, who played an
all-around good game, turned in the
best performances of any of the
Michigan players.
Kennedy, Harper and Haupti were
the only State men to press the Wo-
verine defense to any extent.

Sets built especially by the classes
in stagecraft in the Universtiy have
been set up in Mimes theater for the
opening tonight of Play Production's
repertory presentation of "Sun-Up"
and "Hell Bent Fer Heaven," plays
laid in the mountainous regions of
Kentucky and North Carolina. The
latter work, by Hatcher Hughes,
which was awarded the Pulitzer

prize, deals with religious fanaticism:
among the half-civilized peoples of
the mountains. The first play is the
work of Lulu Vollmer.
Use of identical sets for the two
plays have enabled Play Productions
to give them in repertory fashion,
beginning tonight with "Sun-Up."
The engagement will close Saturday
night, but may be revived later. All
of the direction for the production is
being done by Earl Fleischman of the
speech department.

Three persons sustained injuries
about the head in an accident which
occurred shortly after 11 o'clock last1
night on the main highway between
Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti.1
Maly Wente, 609 Hill street, was the
most badly hurt, receiving a deep la-
ceration on the neck and a probable3
skull facture. Her husband, William
Wente, with whom she was riding, re-
ceived a minor cut on the cheek, and
was removed to his home after two1
stitches had been taken in his cheek.,
Bertha LaBlane, the third injured'
person, was treated for bruises about
the head and removed to her home at I
202 Glenn.
The accident is said to have oc-
curred when a truck crashed into a
bus in which Mrs. LaBlanc was rid-
ing. The Wente car, following close
behind, was not able to stop and
crashed into the rear end of the truck.
Mrs. Wente was reported in a semi-
conscious condition by hospital author-"
ities early this morning. She was
being treated for a fractured skull
although the exact extent of her in-
juries were not yet known.
Noted Indian Diplomat, Journalist, And
Authroity On East Will Compare
Ideals Of East And West
Syud Hossain, noted Indian lec-
turer and journalist, will speak at
4:15 o'clock Monday afternoon, Feb.
20, under the auspices of the Hindu-1
stan club, it was announced yester-
day by officers of the organization.
Hossain's lecture was originally
scheduled to be held under the aus-
pices of the Oratorical association
has been cancelled due due to unfor-i
seen cricumstances, and as a result'
he will speak here Monday instead.
The speaker is an authorital on
political and economic conditions of
the East, and has had long ex-
perience as a public lecturer. Edu-
cated under English influence, he I
early became engaged in journalism
in England, writing for such period-
icals as the "Contemporary Reviw,"
and the "Pall Mall Gazette." Later
he went to India where he held suc-
cessively the post of associate, editor
and editor in chief of the "Bombay'
Chronicle" and of "The 'Independ-
ent" of Allahabad, two of the lead-
ing journals of India. During his
career as editor of these publications
he first won favor as a popular ora-
tor and public lecturer.
In 1920 he was one of the three
special delegates elected, with the
consent of the Viceroy of India, by
the people of India to represent that
nation in presenting the Indian case
to the powers at the Near East Peace
Settlement. Upon the conclusion o
his mission he remained in Europe
to follow the developments of the
international situation and in 1921
attended the Washington . conference
for the limitation of armaments as
press representative,for India.-
Since that time he has devoted al-
most'his entire attention to the lec-
ture platform, having completed sev-
eral tours of Europe. He is editor,
however, of the "New Orient," a
Journal published in the United
States for the furthering of inter-
national good-will between peoplied
of the East and of the West.
His lecture here will have to do
with present conditions in the Far
East, and lie will com'pare the rela-

tive developments of eastern and
western ideals.
Arrangements have been made by
Liberty, the "Weekly for Everybody"
to take pictires of the members of
the business staff of the Gargoyle
wh<A will be selling the February
issue of the humor magazine Thurs-
day on the campus.
The new edition of the Gargoyle
will be a take-off on this well-knownE
weekly with each feature of thes
magazine easily recognizable in the
parody. Officials of Liberty have pro-
vided the business staff with 'special
sacks which are used by regular Lib-
erty street salesmen and these will be
used during the sale of the Gargoyle.
Many members of the staff of Lib-
trty have formerly worked on stu-
dent publications in various college's
and much interest has been shown
concerning the forthcoming issue.

Sub-Coniniittee's Proposal Objected To
As Subordination Of National
(By Associated Press)
HAVANA, Feb 7.-Cordial but ap-
parently irreconcilable attitudes on
the part of the countries represented
were revealed at today's meeting of a
sub-committee of the Pan-American
congress which discussed the funda-
mental rights and duties of nations in
an effort to iron out differences which
last Saturday led to a mass attack on
the part of most delegations on
United States'Latin American policy.
Prompt agreement was reached to-
day that the basis of the discussion of
the sub-committee, which held its
meeting behind closed doors, should
be the report which Dr. Victor Maur-
tua, of Peru, presented to committee
on public international law last Sat-'
urday. Dr. Gustavo, of Salvador, re-'

Woman's league building. He said
the site will be obtained for $300,000.
The improvements the regents de-
clared are urgently necessary are: 1.
Dust line and cable to the University,
hospital, $15,000; 2. Duct line con-
tinued from the Dental building to
the substation near Waterman gymna-
sium, $6,800, and a 2,300 volt, cable
from the power plant to the substa-
tion, $5,600; 3. Three new oil switch-
es in the substation, manhole, $3,600;
4. Ten-inch, high-pressure steam line
from power plant to Chanmber No. 1
near substation, $33,500, and 8-inch
return water line from Chamber No.
1 to power plant, $10,500. The esti-
mated cost of equipping the Women s
League Building with heat, light, and
power will bring the total funds re-
quired up to $100,000.
Prof. O. N. Holis, Detroit Edison
expert detailed to the University said
in his reports of the present condi-
tions, "I am very 'strongly of the
opinion that the work under the first
three items should be done as soon
as possible, and that the work under1
the fourth item should be completed
before next winter."

Large Appropriations Slated f
WASHINGTON, Feb. 7.-Carrying'
funds for varied government activities,
including prohibition enforcemen+,
initiation of work on 72 new public
buildings in various parts of the coun-
try and for air mail contracts, thej
annual supply bill for the treasury
and postoffice departments was re-
ported today by the House appropria-
tions committe.
The House dealt in figures of bil-
lions of dollars for the first time this
session-the measure calling for a
total expenditure of $2,298,696,000,
the largest of any of the five supply
bills previously reported, and un-
doubtedly the biggest Congress will
be called upon to consider at thef
present term. The money will be
available at the beginning of the next
fiscal year, July 1. House leaders
plan to bring the bill up for debate
on the floor Thursday.
Of the measure's total, $1,533,746,000
was allotted to the Treasury, repre-,
senting a decrease of $51,726,000 un-
der current funds and $746,950,000 to
the postoffice department, ai increase
of $7,582,000 over its 1928 appropria-
The direct appropriation for prohi-
bition enforcement was $12,729,000, a
decrease of $591,000. This, however,}
does not include $19,180,000 for the
customs service which will spendF
$787,000 on patrol of the thousands of
miles of the Mexican and Canadian,
borders and inspection of ports in
quest of rum smugglers. Also theI
prohibition navy, the coast guard, willj
receive $28,902,000 and with its fleet
of 450 vessels and five sea planes anl
its force of 13,000 will constitute the
sea sleuths of the enforcement service.
The allottment of $48,520,000 for
public buildings represented the sec-
ond fund made available this year'
for these structures. But all -except1
$18,955,000 will be spent at the na-
tional capital.

Concluding the Extra concert series i'to
for the season of 1927-1928, the Uni- iu
versity Musical society will present g
Myra Hess, an English pianist, in re- ri
cital next Monday night in Hill audi- er
torium. Miss Hess has received herre
training completely at the hands of m
British teachers and is one of the o
younger products of the British school. w
She has recently appeared in both q
Detroit and Chicago. Iw
As the final musical event of the la
University year, the society will offer
Feodor Chaliapin, Russian basso, in b
Hill auditorium on Feb. 23. Chala- th
pin's concert will be the last of the (hm
regular concert series, following the
Newv York symphony orchestra. w
Myra Hess was born in London and t
began her studies when five years g
old. She entered Trinity college andi
the Guildhall school of music, and was
later admitted to the Royal academy.1i
Shortly after this she was awarded b
the academy gold medal and was a
made an associate and a fellow. Her b
American debut was made in New I b
York comparatively recently. Her
art is said by critics not to be master- w
ful but rather interesting and varied, U
and therefore new to the American s
audience. t
Chaliapin is one of the best known ti
of living singers, and an artist of the s
Metropolitan opera company. He was d
at one time a cobbler in the city of 1m
Kazan in Russia-, and after that at t
different times a wood-carver, book- S
binder, novice in a monastery and t:
longshoresmani on the Volga river. f
He attained recognition on the oper-~t
atic stage after travelling through them
country as an itinerant singer and o
was invited to head his own opera t
company by a wealthy patron. ToursA
through Italy, France,' and England D
led to his first engagement at the c
Metropolitan in 1907, while his first e
real sensation was scored in 1921. 1

It is necessary for 600 students to

The reorganization is in the nature

le to vote.
Makes For Efficiency
Up to the present time the board
f governors and the board of direc-
rs have shared the administrative
nctions of the Union. The board of
overnors has exercised financial ju-
sdiction, and has selected the gen-
al manager, while the board of di-
ctors has had charge of the ad-
inistration of the other parts, of the
rganization. Under this system it
as necessary for any financial
uestion to come before both boards
hich frequently caused much de-
By the amendment the duties of
oth these boards will be vested in
e one board of directors which will
ave full administrative power. The
ersonnel of this board will be some-
hat a combination of the fornrer
wo boards. Formerly the board of
overnors was composed of seven
en, one of whom is a student, the
resident of the Union, while the
oard of directors has had students
s seven of its 17 members. The new
oard of directors will have 17 mem-
ers with 8 student members.
The personnel of the new board
'ill consist of the president of the
'nion, the recording secretary, and
ix vice presidents, one each from
he literary college, the law school,
he engineering college, the Medical
chool, the Dental college, and stu-
ents of the School of Business Ad-
inistration, the S'chool of Educa-
ion, the Graduate school, and the
chool of Pharmacy. In addition to
hese students there will be three
aculty members to be selected by
he University senate, two alumni
nembers to be chosen by the board
)f directors of the Alumni asocia-
ion, the 'general secretary of the
lumni association, a member of the
3oard of Regents, the financial se-
retary of the Union who is appoint-
d by the Senate council of the Uni-
ersity, and the dean of students.
i'he idea of putting the dlean of stu-
ents on tie board is a new step in-
,orporated in the plan. Since the
lental college has never before had
vice president on the board there
will be one more student menmber
han there has been before. All of
hese student members will be elect-
d at a general election.
Qualiy Financial Powers -
The financial power of the board
will be vested in a committee of the
board of directors and will replace
he old board of governors since the
privilege of picking the general man-
ager will be given this committee
and he will be responsible to them.
The new plan cannot possible go
nto effect before this summer since
the election of the various imembers
of the board must take place first
and this cannot be completed until
the end of the present semester.
The activities of the Union will be
under the direction of an activities
committee appointed from the board
of directors, several members - of

which will be students and which
will have charge of all activities con-
d"cted within the Union building
There will be a house committee
composed partially of students to as-
sist the general manager in the run-
ning of the Union, according to the
new plan.
