GPB Decorations for the annual Archi-

O on the night of Friday, May 11, in
HB Barbour gymnasium, as usual, are
nearing completion, according to a
FRESHME IN TO committee announcement. Howard

Cane-Spree, Rope Tying Contest, And
Obstacle Race Are Remaining
Events On Program
First blood and two points out of a
possible five went to the sophomores
yesterday afternoon as a result of
their victory in the traditional tug of
war across the Huron which opened'
the annual Spring games. The sopho-
mores, although routed by superior
numbers in the free-for-all tug, cap-
tured the two 50-man contests, win-
ning the event.
The freshmen appeared first on the
field about 4 o'clock, shortly followed
by the sophomores carrying the rope.
A preliminary skirmish occurred
when several freshmen crossed the
river to secure their end of the rope
which the sophomores seemed unwill-
ing to relinquish. After the difficulty
had been straightened out, the two
teams of 50 picked men from 'each
class entrenched themselves with
picks and spades and lined up for
the first tug.
:ph~oores Score Twice
The sophomores, led by Walter
Crego, '30, 'stationed on the softer
east bank, scored a decisive win when
they pulled the entire freshman team
half way across the river. The fresh-
men secured the jump in the second
tug and had captured several feet of
rope before the sophomores were able
to stem the rush and win back a.
ten foot advantage which they were
able to keep. On this margin they

Bunts and his colored orchestra, from
Detroit will furnish the music the
affair, and will present a number of
novelty features during the course
of the night.
As usual, students in the College of
Architecture are constructing their
own decorations which consist of
wooden frames covered with build-
ing paper upon which the designs are
painted. The outstanding colors will
be yellow, orange, and red, with oc-
casional touches of green, in keeping
with the chosen decorative design of

Of Governor Al Smith

"A Terrace of Old Inca."
Costumes for the party should be
as much in harmony with the decor-
ative scheme as possible and as the.
setting is in Inca, a part of Peru,
those attending the party should be
dressed as nearly as possible in the
attire peculiar to that region. The
costume designs should bear a re-
semblance to the Egyptian costumes
and a feeling of the Spanish may be
added, such as mantillas, shawls of
bright color, and the like. Further
information concerning the costumes
may be had by consulting Mr. Myron
B. Chapin, on the fourth floor of theI
Architectural building. There will be
prizes given for the best costumes
for men and women.
There are a few tickets for this
party still left over, which will be
sold on. Monday and Tuesday after-
noon, between the hours of 2 and 5,
in the lobby of the Michigan Union.
As the number of tickets is so limit-
ed, the committee in charge urges
that those interested in getting them 1
should apply early.5

White House Head Believes Neither

WASHINGTON, May 4-Even before
finishing touches have been applied
at the Capital the shadow of the
presidential veto grew perceptibly
darker 7 ocay over the two major leg-
islative efforts of the present Con-
gress- -the Mississippi flood control

Millions Of Gallons Threaten Homes
And Lives; Fear Other Dams
May Burst
(By Associated Press)
GREENVILLE, S. C., May 4.-Sev-
eral thousand persons, residents of
South Saluda river valley, along a 50-
mile stretch late tonight fled for their
lives as some 5,000,000 gallons of wa-
ter, breaking through the new earth
dam of the Greenville water system
threatened their homes and lives.
Six other dams were in the path of
the expected torrent and it was feared
some of them might break, loosing oth-
er billions of gallons of water on the
residents of the valley.
Although at 10 o'clock tonight the
dam had not actually gone out, ac-,
cording to H. W. Perry, superintend-
ent of the city water works, it was ex-
pected that the strucure would col-
lapse at any time.

Wolverine third baseman whose
fielding and hitting featured Michi-
gan's second consecutive victory over
the Colgate team yesterday at Whit-
nall field. In addition to fielding his
position perfectly, Weintraub con- I
tributed two of the Michigan's seven
hits, both of them triples and scored
a run in the eighth frame which
proved to be the deciding counter of
the contest.

were awarded the victory. The free- I
for-all tug proved to be a walk away ,
for the freshmen when the sophomores
relinquished the rope as soon as the
situation appeared hopeless.{
After the final tug the sophomores
took possession of the rope by virtue1
of their victory in the event and'
snake-danced up State street to Hill 7
'auditorium on the steps of which they
had their picture taken.
By winning two out of the three tugs
the sophomores obtained a two-point
jump on the freshmen, and will need
to win but one of the three events
to be contested at Ferry field thisj
morning in order to be victorious in
he game's.
Three Events Remain
The cane-spree, obstacle race, and
rope-tying contest are the remaining
events on the Spring games program.
The cane-spree will be a contest be-
tween two teams of nine men who willi
be paired off to contest the possess-
ion of nine cane's. To' the class in
-possession of the larger number of
canes when the time limit has elapsed
'will be awarded one point
( The obstacle race will be run in
three heats of five men each with two
walls to climb over, barrels to dive
through, a large trapulin to crawl
under, and two teeter-totters to run
over. The point for the obstacle race
will be awarded to the clas's capturing
two out of three heats.
All To Compete
The rope-tying 'contest will be a
tree for all in which members of the
opposing classes will each be furn-
nished with five pieces of rope and
given 15 minutes in which to tie up
and make prisoners of their oppon-
ents. Suitable pens will be provided
for either class in which to keep their1
captives, but the privilege of escaping
will be open to all those who can
avail themselves of it. The class
which has the most prisoners suc-
cessfully confined at the end of the
allotted 15 minutes will be awarded
the point for this event.
The freshmen will meet at 9 o'clock
this morning in front of the Union and
the sophomores at the same tine by
Waterman gymnasium. The march to
Ferry field will begin at 9:30 o'clock.

WASHINGTON, May 4.-The formal
withdrawal of Sen. Thomas J. Walsh,
of Montana, from the race for the
Democratic presential ncmination ,
furnished the highlight in another day.
of rapidly moving political develop-
ment in the national capital.
The Montana senator, famous as a
prosecutor of the S'enate Teapot Dome
nquiry, expressed the view that re-
cent events quite clearly indicate that
the democrats desire for their candi-
date Gov. Alfred E. Smith, of New
York, who now is well ahead of theI
field in his fight for delegates.
Announcing that he would carry
on his fight to the finish, Sen. James
A. Reed, of Missouri, said he wished
the Montanan had "arrived at his con-
clusion before he muddied the waters
by entering the California primary,"
and added that if he were a general in
a war he would not surrender his ar-
my because he had "lost a scrimmage."
Meanwhile the Democratic campaign
was taking a new twist, the special
Senate campaign funds committee lay-
ing plans to begin its investigations
into preconvention campaigns financ-
ing next Monday by examining the first
candidates for the Republican and Dem-
ocratic iiominations who are mem-bers
of Congress.
Governor Smith advised the commit-
tee that he would be glad to appear
one day in the middle or last part of
next week. Chairman Speiwer said the
committee probably would not ask the
governor to come to Washington, but
would proceed to Albany to hear him
-there. The procedure may be followed
in the case of Governor Ritchie, of
Maryland, the only other active state
governor now in the presidential race.
On behalf of Secretary Hoover, it
was stated that he would appear when-
ever called, but if the committee re-
ceived any reply from Frank O. Low-
den the other contender for the Re-
publican nomination, the fact was not
made known. The investigators will
meet again tomorrow at which time

the various candidates would be made

He stated that religion, morality, and
