FHO 6IV I -E Alll










By Morris Quinn
Encountering unexpected opposition
from a determined Gopher team, the
Wolverine trackmen repeated their
performance of last week by coming
from behind to outscore the invaders
more than two to one in the last two
events on the program yesterday
afternoon on Ferry field to chalk up a
72 1-2 to 62 1-2 victory in the first
dual meet ever staged between the
That the teavlis were nearly equal is
attested by the fact that the Farrell-
coached team scored seven firsts, eight
seconds, and nine thirds, as compared
to a like number of firsts, seven sec-
onds, and five thirds for Minnesota,
the team's tying for the other first and
third places.
Individual honors for the day went
to Francis Rhea, lanky Gopher star,
who accounted for 10 of his team's
points. Cooper and Hester trailed him
by two points for second.
Ketz Sets New Record
Wilfred Ketz, Michigan's big ham-
raer thrower, *shared the honors of
the day by bettering the Ferry field
hammer record which had stood since
1904 with a toss or 160 feet 10 inches.
Hester, Moroe, and Cooper pooled
their efforts to take firsts in three of
the first four track events and give
Michigan what appeared to be a siz-:
,eable lead, but the Minnesota athletes
began to whittle down the Maize and1
Blue margin soon afterwards. when
Catlin beat Munger and Seymour in a
fast 440, winning in :49.7.
Eight more markers were added to
the visitors total in the' two mile,
when' North ran away from the field,
Anderson finishing second. Minne-
sota scored heavily In the discus and
the pole vault, taking 16 1-2 out of a
possible 18 points to go into the lead.
With four events remaining on the
program, the Michigan track stars'
amassed 26 out of the 36 points, in-,
eluding a slam in the hammer to re-
gain their early advantage and cinch
the meet.

Committee Plan Involves Bond Issue(
To Furnish Portion Of Cost
Of Construction
The project of dormitories, taken
over by the alumni several years ago
was submitted to the Alumni Trien-
nial and accepted late Friday evening
at the banquet.
The plan for dormitories as sub-
mitted by J. 'Arthur Wiitworth, '94,
chairman of the committee on dormi-
tories, consisted in' the main of a
plan suggested by a Trust company
of Detroit. Under this plan, given the
land, satisfactory buildings could be
built and furnished 'by issuing 5 per
cent bonds with sufficient rent pledg-
ed thereunder to pay the interest
and retire the bonds within 22 years
or less.
The bonds paid, the dormitories
would then revert to the University
as unemenumbered property. The land,
provisions for which are not includ-
ed in the plan, would be acquired by
the alumni association through gift
or subscription. Inasmuch as the land
will have been paid for and the pro-
perty as a whole free from local tax,
a great deal of overhead expense will
be eliminated. Also as bonds are re-
tired, the only source of overhead
outside of operating expenses will
be greatly decreased.
This represents the fourth year
since the alumni have assumed the
p 'oblem of financing the question of
dormitories. With the advent of
President C. C. Little the project re-
ceived great impetus.
The Detroit alumni have already
raised a sum of $25,000 toward financ-
ing the dormitories.
At the banquet the Ann Arbor club
also announced that it was sponsor-
ing the erection of the Burton Mem-
orial Campanile, which will house a
carillon, for which a campaign has
been started by the students. The
assembled clubs pledged their sup-
port to the Memorial.
As a special feature of the banquet
the University was presented with a
bust of Fielding H. Yost, an adopted
alumnus, which will be placed in the
field house.

OF $3,000

With Aid Of Picked Staff
Of Michigan Men
Tag days, on tomorrow and Tues-
day, the culmination of the drive to1
raise funds for the camp, are beingt
depended on, according to Henry S.
Grinnell, '28, chairman oftthe commit-
tee in charge, to make feasible thel
goal of extending the period of the
camp and enlarging the number oft
boys accommodated. Students are ask-e
ed to buy the tags, costing 50 cents
and $, from the M-men and members
of the various honorary societies whof
will be stationed at booths. These
booths will remain open from 8 o'clock
to 4 o'clock on both days, and will'
be placed in front of the Union, An-r
gell hall, the Library, at both ends
of, the diagonal and in front of thef
University hospital.
It is absolutely necessary that moree
than $3,000 be raised on these two
days. A new bungalow has been built
at the camp grounds on Patterson
lake, which allows 40 more boys toI
be accommodated in the four dif-
ferent sections of the camp. Aboute
one third of the fraternities and soror-e
ities have responded with checks al-e
ready, which amount to over $500.c
Besides this there was a miscellan-r
eous contribution of approximatelyI
Homer Grafton, secretary of thez
Students Christian association, has re-
ceived numerous letters from inter-e
ested parties in the state concerningt
the accomplishments of ithe camp.
Among these is the following fromr
E. J. Ottawa, '94, editor of the Port
Huron Times Herald: "There are so
many considerations that unite to
make the camp at Patterson lake1
worthwhile 'that it is difficult to pick
out the most important feature.'
"It is evident that the camp teaches
a healthy respect for the' rights ofC
the community; it inculcates the prin--
ciples of fair play, honor and jus-
tice; it teaches to those who need
them such minor civilities as table
manners and personal cleanliness; it
makes the boys water-safe for life
by teaching them to swim; it incul-
cates, too, a love of nature; it does
many things of this sort for theseE
city-bred boys, who do not always
see, nature, or fair play, for weeks ort
months at a time.
"Besides all this, I personally know
that the days at camp send the boy
home with an incentive to live, real-
izing that there is a chance for birr
in the world, and there could be n
greater good than this." -
Initiation of new members and
nomination of officers for next year
will be the business confronting Adel-
phi house of representatives at an im-
portant meeting in Angell hall Tues-
day evening, Russell M. Sanderon,
'29, speaker, announced yesterday.
Election of officers will take place at
a later'meeting.
The following will be admitted into
the organization: Donald M. Toby,
Louis Zlatkin, Henry W. Schmidt,
Frank Munger, Sol R. Epton, Irving
H: Cooper, Morris Friedman, and
Frank Rosenbaum, all of the clss
of '31.
Plans will be discussed for the an-
nual Adelphi banquet at the Union,




Delamarter And Percy Grainger
To Appear In Concerts As
Guest Conductors

Preparations are practically com-
plete for the presentation of the thir-
ty-fifth annual May Festival in Hill
auditorium on Wednesday, Thursday'!
Friday, and Saturday of the coming
week, according to Earl V. Moore of
the School of Music, musical director
of the annual event.
The programs have been so arrang
ed, according to Mr. Moore to provid
for a great variety of tastes in pre-
ferences of the musical audiences
Such matters as a consideration of
musical values, the psychology of au
dience, abilities of the individual per
formers, as well as the resources o'
all departments were carefully weigh
ed to provide what was wanted.
Concerts Are Varied
.Two concerts of a miscellaneous
nature are provided, one in which the
Festival will be opened and the new
Frieze memorial organ just complet-
ed at a cost of $75,000, with Margar-
et Matzenauer as soloist, and the oth-
er on Friday night when Leonore Cor-
ona, a well-known soprano, will ap-
pear as soloist. In both of these
programs guest conductors will par-
ticipate, Eric Delamarter in the first
and Percy Grainger in the second
The Chicago Symphony orchestra will
add numbers between the solo selec-
tions of both nights.
Likewise in contrast to the twc
miscellaneous programs two greai
choral evenings will be provided: oT
Thursday evening when a modern or.
atorio "St. Francis of Assissi" wil
be performed, requiring the services
of orchestra, chorus and soloists, and
the other on Saturday evening when
in contrast to the oratorio the grea'
opera of familiar nature will be list-
ened to.
Soloists Afforded Opportunity
This opera, like the oratorio on
Thursday evening contains wealthl
parts for the soloists, and in both cas-

WASHINGTON, May 12.-An agree-
ment on the final form of the McNary-
Haugen farm relief bill was reached
today by Conferences of the senate
and house.
Differences between the measures
passed by the senate and house were
of a more or less minor character.
It is the hope of Senator McNary,
Republican, of 'Oregon, co-author of
the measure, to get the legislation
before President Coolidge by next
Wednesday. A veto is expected.
A two-thirds vote is required to
over-ride a veto. The senate passed
the McNary-Ilaugen bill by more than
a two-thirds majority but this margin
was not mustered in the house vote.

ILLINOIS FIELD, URBANA, May 12.-Truly bound toward a
Western Conference baseball chanpionship, it would seem the Michigan
nine refused to accept anything but victory here today and clouted out a
double win over Illinois, 10-5 and 8-5, bringing the Maize and Blue total
of consecutive triumphs in the 1928 Big Ten race to eight, with defeat
yet to stalk Wolverine premises. Since every other team has lost at least
two games, the Wolverines need only to win half of their remaining
contests to be assured a tie for the title.
" - wWhile almost every member of the Michigan squad contributed his
Lange share to success in the day, two figures stand out in bold relief-Eddie

der. But there, mere figures do not tell the dtory-he made two home
S runs and a double. Even that does not convey the drama of the day.
With the score tied at 5-5 in the ninth and one out, Lange caught one of
Bud Stewart's fast ones for the home run that sent in Asbeck and Loos
ahead of him for the three-run margin which meant the double win.
