the Grenfell medical mission to La-

at 8 o'clock this evening in Hill audi-

14.-The American delegation to the
Pan-American congress in Havana
will seek firmly to establish there a
spirit of good will in which to solve
common problems of the new world,
free from all suspicion of aggressive-
ness and dictation.
It was made clear tonight on the
special train carrying President Cool-
idge to the congress that the Amer-
ican delegation will stand squarely on
the policy which the Washington
government has professed for many
years, claiming no special privileges
and undesirous of imposing any selfish
In addition it was stated authori-
tatively that the delegation, headed by
Charles Evans Hughes, is prepared to
face repercussion from the recent
American policy in Nicaragua, which
involves the sending of Marines to
that nation. A viewpoint of the
Washington government, it was made
known, will be presented upon the
double consideration that the trouble
in the Central American republican

aguan government, and upon the
United States' policy of encouraging

Three mem-bers of the Second Uni-
versity Greenland expedition left the
base camp atop Mt. Evans yesterday
to fight their way inland over the ice-
cap as far as is practicable and es-
tablish a meteorological station at
which they will collect data until the
lack of food or the approach of spring
drives them back to Mt. Evans.
The three men are Henge Bangsted,
Danish explorer, who is in command
of the expedition, Prof. James E.
Church, '92, of the University of Ne-
vada, who will have charge of theE
meteorological work of the trip, and
an unnamed Eskimo helper. They will
make the trip with a dogteam ail
sledge, and will dig a cave in the
snow, which will be their home for
the month or two during which me-
teorological data will be collected .
The three men are provided with pem-
mican, a special preparation of beef,
which has long been in use in the
cold regions,and five of their dogs will
be slaughtered when they have reach-
ed their destination, to eke out their
provisions. The remaining dogs will

Opportunities for interesting work
and practical training in journalism
will be open on The Daily at the be-
ginning of the second semester for
all freshmen, whether experienced or
not, who wish to try out for the staff.
Meetings will be held in the first week
of the semester, and all prospective
staff members are urged to visit the
Press building as soon as possible
'after examination weeks.
Tryouts will be given a chance to
learn various fields of newspaper
work in the office of one of the larg-
est, and the third oldest, college
daily in the country. Thirty years
development has resulted in an or-
ganization and methods closely ap-
proaching those of the leading profes-
sional journals. On the editorial staff
of The . Daily, there are opportuni-
ties to learn and develop ability in
writing, gathering news, editing, and
a wide range of technical processes in
the production of a daily newspaper.
The business side offers practical ex-
perience in writing advertising copy,
sales wvork in circulation and adver-
tising,wstaff management, problems of

Visitors Stall Successfully, Keeping
Possession Of Bal Continually
For Eight Minutes
" By Herbert E. Vedder
Thrilling a monster crowd beyond
description, Michigan's battling Wol-
verines tore through a furious game
that was more than basketball to
annex their first Western Conference
victory at the expense of a fVt
breaking Indiana five last night in a
whirlwind finish. The final score, 42-
41, merely tells the result,aand In no
way describes what was the greatest
battle ever staged in Yost field house.
Every man on the Michigan team
played fine ball and each one lent
himself to teamwork, making forea
smooth combination.
Bennie Oosterbaan was high point
man of the game with 14 points but
all of the others deserve equal credit.
Capt. Frank Harrigan, though mak-
ing only one basket and three free
throws, played a fine floor game and
passed unselfishly.
A most gratifying feature of the
game was the work of the Maize and
Blue five under the basket; the Oos-
terbaan-Harrigan combination was
working at top speed.
McCoy Is Effective
Ernie McCoy played well offensively
and defensively and was most effec-
tive at taking the ball off the back-
board. Rose was assigned the hardest
job of the evening, watching Art Beck-
ner, but fought all the way. Bob
Chapman, sophomore center, showed
up excellently, getting the tip most
of the time, and playing with the cool-
ness of a veteran.
But in 'listing the Michigan honor
roll it would be nothing 'short of
criminal not to mention Dick Gawne.
He went in with less than five
minutes left and the score 36-31 and
played faultlessly, slipping com-
pletely away from the Hoosier de-
fense to take a pass the full length
of the floor and drop the ball through
the hoop to give Michigan a 41-38
Attacks Superlative
It is doubtful if any defense ever
devised could have stopped Indiana
and Michigan last night. The attacks
of both teams were 'superlative though
there were bad lapses in defense, and
at the close of the first half the
score was 25-19 in favor of the
Wolverines. Indiana's worst defi-
ciency was in free throws as they
scored one more basket than Michi-
Within two or three minutes after
play wa's resumed, Indiana broke
loose with a vengeance. McCoy sank
a free throw to put the Wolves back
in the lead and Rose's basket brought
the count to 28-25. A basket and
free throw by Scheid tied the score.
A moment later Wells againamade an
uncanny shot to give Indiana a 3-28
lead which they clung to tenaciously
by a wonderfully well executed stall-
ing game.
After six m'inutes of this the Hoos-
ier spell was broken, Oosterbaan mak-
ing good on two gratis shots to tie
up the game. Strickland made a bas-
ket and McCoy a free throw. Then
Beckner and McCracken shot two
baskets and the Michigan cause seem-
ed hopeless with the Hoosiers leading,
36-31 and starting to stall again.
The Wolverines, however, broke this
up in short order and adopted a
shooting game. Chapman put one in
from the corner of the floor and Mc-
Coy added another two points. Ooster-
baan finally dropped one in from the
foul line to give the Wolverines a
37-36 edge.
Hoosiers Lead Again
The edge was of short duration,
however, as Captain Correll's basket
put the Hoosiers back in front. This
lead vanished, too, when Oosterbaan

tipped one in and Gawne put Michi-
gan in what looked to be a command-
ing position by his sleeper basket.
Captain Harrigan and Beckner each
made good on a double foul and the
score was 42-39. McCracken brought
the Hoosiers within a point of Mich-
