TRAWN EMPHASIZES
NATIONS PURPOSE IN
FOUNDER'SDAY TALK
EXERCISES HELD IN HONOR OF
WILLIAM W. COOK, DONOR
OF LAWYERS' CLUB
CA;SE CLUB FINALS HELD
Judge Paul Jones Of Cleveland Tells
Of New Order Which Threatens
Present Systems
"No good Ameican, either under
the stress or uncontrollable ecstasy
or yielding to a vain impulse should
do anything to lessen or destroy the
confidence of the other nations in the
honesty of purpose or the fairmind-
edness of our government," declared
Silas H. Strawn, noted Chicago law-
yer and president o the American bar
association in the main address last
night at the sixth annual Founder's
day exercises, at the Lawyers' club,
commemorating the gift of the club
by William W. Cook,. '82L, of New
York City.
Talks of Education
Turning his attention to questions
of education, Strawn asserted that,
"The fundamental idea of all educa-
tional institutions should be to train
students so that they are able to edu-
cate themselves. The University here
would fail in its object if its funda-
mental purpose were not to teach
students to think for themselves; to
be able to distinguish facts from fic-
tion and to reason accurately from
premise to conclusinns."
"While we cannot directly influence
the action of the people of foreign na-
tions, we can nevertheless, by our
conduct and our example, exact a
powerful influence upon the prosper-
ity of the other countries and upon .
the peace o the world," Strawn con-
tinued.
That our government fully reaiz-
es that fact is evidenced by the per-
sistent efforts of our Secretary of
State to bring into effect an agree- I
ment among the world's greatest na-
tions to abolish war.
As a special feature .of the occasion,
Dean Henry M. Bates of the Law
school called on Chief Justice Lewis
H. Fead, '00L, of the Michigan Su-
preme court, to present special in-
signia to those graduating Law stu-
ents who have resided in the Lawyers'
club for at least two years.
Cleveland Judge Speaks
Judge Paul Jones' ,05L, of the Fed-
eral court at Cleveland, Ohio, spoke
briefly on a charge that boundaries
of states in this country are disap-
pearing before a new order, a different
form of government evolved recently,
which, he claimed, threatens to harm
the democratic principles of state or-
ganization and government in the
United States as practiced for years
under the constitution.
Fu'ther messages were delivered by
Judge Arthur H. Tuttle, '95L, of the
Federal court at Detroit end by Prof.
Grover C. Grismore of the Law school
who read a letter from Cook, the
founder of the club. .
Final case club arguments were
heard in the afternoon before a bench
consisting of Strawn, Judge Jones,
and Jon M. Zane, '84, of Chicago, a
well known attorney. George B.
Christensen, '29L, and William A. Mil-
ler, '29L, representing the Holmes
were awarded the decision after each
member of the bench had declared his

Early Morning Fire
In Arc'de Cafeteria
Causes $25,000 Loss
Fingerle's cafeteriad gn Nickles
Arcade was heavily damaged by a
fire of unknown cause early yesterday
morning. Although causing losses es-
timated at $25,000 within the cafeteria,
the flames were stopped without ser-
ious damage from water or smoke to
the shops and offices in the arcade.
The blaze was discovered about 3
o'clock by a patrolman who turned in
the alarm to the police headquarters.
Flames were being emitted from the
rear windows when the firemen ar-
rived, offering evidence that the fire
must have started in the kitchen.
Firemen fought the blaze for nearly
'three hours.
Shortly before being called to the
cafeteria fire, the firemen had re-
turned from the home of Everett
Graf. 1207 Gardner avenue where the
kitchen had been destroyed by a blaze.

(By Associated Press)
SPRINGFIELD, Ill., April 20. -
Frank 0. Lowden, Illinois' wartime
governor, was named as the Repub-
lican state convention's choice for the
presidential nomination here late to-
day. Delegates were instructed "to
bring out his nomination."
The instructions of the 61 delegates]
were contained in the convention plat-
form adopted at the late overtime 'ses-
sion, necessitated by protracted de-
bate over delegates, and a demon-
stration that first indicated all hope"
of harmony might be fruitless.
Calvin Encouraging;
Homer K. Galvin, of Chicago,
spokesman for the Robert Crowe,
Mayor William Hale Thompson and
Gov. Len Small faction, dispelled any
belligerent uprising when he appealed
to obstreperous Cook county delegates.
He told the convention that "we will
use every effort to support the state
ticket. I beseech you to treat most
kindly those who beat us in a fair
campaign." 1
The administration of President
Coolidge was endorsed as "progressive
and efficient," as was "constructive
work of senators and Republican
members of Congress from Illinois
and the present state officers."
The Republicans got their conven-
tion under way without a designated1
"keynoter." Lewis I. Emmerson, the
gubernatorial nominee, Otis F. Glenn,
nominated for the U. S'. Senate, and
Mrs. Ruth Hanna McCormick, one of
the two nominees for congress at
large, were accorded lengthy ,ova-

At Convention
LITTLE TO GIVE ADDRESS1
Arrangements for the Second Tri-
ennial of University of Michigan clubs
to be held May 10, 11, and 12 in Chi-
cago, with headquarters at the Black-
stone hotel, are practically complete
as to the main features. Speeches by
various noted men will form one of
the highlights of the convention.,
Among these men are included five,
college presidents. The idea of bring-
ing in the heads of other schools to
talk to alumni is new in the history
of Michigan alumni meetings. These
men are President Stratton D. Brooks,
of the University of Missouri, Presi-
dent Lotus D. Coffman, of the Uni--
versity of Minnesota, President Wal-
ter Jessup, of the University of Iowa,
and President Glenn Frank, of the
University of Wisconsin, in addition
to President Clarence Cook Little, of
Michigan.
The theme which has been chosen
for this Triennial is "The Interrela-
tion of the State, the University, and
the Alumni." Dn. Brooks has been ap-
pointed "Stage Director" for the pre-
sentation of this theme by university
presidents, state officials, and alum-
ni.
President Little, who has helpM ar-
range this program, is attempting to
have presented to Michigan alumni at
this meeting a picture of the Univer-
sity in the eyes of the State. Dr.
Brooks, president at Missouri and a
graduate of two Michigan schools, will
open the discussion and Dr. Little will11,
also present his views.

at a meeting of the Negro-Caucasion
club held last night at the Union.

SINGLE BY CORRIDEN SCORES
WINNING RUN OF EXTRA
INNING BATTLE
VOGEL TO PROTEST GAME
Bunch 'Hits In Seventh And Overtake
Early Hawkeye Lead; Mulroney
Puzzling Till Then
By Alex A. Bochnowski
A single by Corriden, star Michi-
gan left fielder, after one man was
retired in the tenth inning, sent Squler
across the home plate and enabled the
Wolverines to nose out Iowa, 7 to 6,
in a hectic contest that ended In a
near riot yesterday on south Ferry
field. Several hundred spectators
swarmed out on the field at the end
of the game when Coach Otto Vogel.
and the two umpires, Green and Clea-
xy, engaged in a verbal battle.
Alleging that poor and doubtful de-
cisions were made by the two of-
ficials, Coach Vogel announced later
in the dressing room that he would
file a protest on the game at once with
the Wester Conference officials.
With the Hawkeyes leading 4 to 1
at the end of the first half of the
seventh and to all intents and pur-
poses winners of the game, Michi-
gan bunched a pair of hits with Iowa's
Mulroney's wildness in their halt of
the inning to tie the count and sub-
sequently win the contest. Until this
stage of the battle, Mulroney, the
Hawkeye twirling ace, had the Wol-
verine hitters yielding to his delivery
and showed no signs of weakening.-
Michigan Scores First
After threatening dam-age In the
second and third stanzas, the Michi-
gan nine forged into a one run lead
in the fourth inning. Weintraub sent
a sharp single over second base to
open the fourth. Morse's grounder to
Glassgow was too difficult to handle,
the Maize and Blue second sacker
reaching first safely and Weintraub
taking second before Glassgow could
recover the' ball. McCoy then poked
out a one-base smack to left field to
allow Morse to race across the rub-
ber with Michigan's first marker.
Iowa Takes Lead
The Iowa nine more than retaliated
in the next round when it capitalized
on the loose fielding of the Michigan
infield and two hits to score four
runs. This was all the scoring done
by the Iowans until the eighth when
they coupled a' triple and walk to
take the lead again.
Following their three run rally in
the seventh, the Wolverines resumed
the belated scoring spurt in eighth and
pusedover a lone run on hits by
Morse and Nebulung to deadlock the
score again at 5-5. Both t'eams added
another tally to their totals in the
ninth inning.
Then came the tenth inning which
witnessed Michigan breaking the tie
and winning its third Western Con-
ference tilt. Squier, batting for
Gawne, took first when Capt. Terry
muffed his 'drive to right field. Slagle,
who replaced Nebelung in center field,
then advanced Squier, to third base,
the latter scoring a moment later.
