MADISON, May 19.-Wet courts
caused the canceling of the tennis
matches between Michigan and Wis-
consin here today, keeping the Wol-
verines from meeting another of the
leading teams in the Conference race.
There was a possibility of playing
the matches tomorrow before the Wol-
verines entrain for Minneapolis to en-
gage the Gophers on Monday, but the
Wisconsin Board in Control of Ath-
letics refused its sanction. This leaves
Wisconsin and Ohio, the only unde-
feated teams, to settle the dual meet
supremacy when they meet on June 2.

Conference Triumph

hurdles. -
Don Cooper led the losers with two
firsts, one in the 120 yard high hurdlesl
and another in the 220 yard lows,
without even being pushed by the,
Illini timber-toppers. The big Wol-
verine was running in great form and
bettered his own record for the lows
established last year, by turning the 7
event in the fast time of :23.6.
Captain Hester took the century, as
was expected, in the fast time of :09.8l
with Grodsky, his teammate a close
second. The 220 also saw Michigan
total eight markers, when their posi-
tions were just reversed, Grodsky win-t
ning in the good time of :21.6 withz
fester in second place.
Track Is Slow
The dual encounter was held in con-
junction with the thirty-second annual@
interscholastic events and was run
over a rather slow track due to the
unusually heavy rains of last night-.
No outstanding marks were made witht
the single exception of the pole vault
which was, won by Barnes and White
of Illinois with the bar at 13 feet.
Randolph Monroe sprang a surprise
to local track followers in the mileI
by defeating Stine, McElwee, Novak,
and Ponzer, Gill's great quartet of
milers. At one time in the race three
title holders were leading for the Or-t
ange and Blue, Stine and McElwee
outdoor champions, andNovak, indoorF
title holder. The trio were passed by
the plucky Wolverine runner on t.
last lap to win in 4:29.5.t
Michigan's list of first places was
increased to six when Wilfred'Ketz
tossed the hammer 157 feet 1 inch,
and Knoepp made his best perform-
ance of the year in the javelin to de-
feat Glass and Girard with a throw
of 176 feet 4 1-2 inches.
One of the distinct surprises of the
meet was the showing of "Cowboy"
Nichol in the 440 dash, when he dem-
onstrated that he is the fastest of the
Illini quarter milers by breasting the
tape in :50.2 to defeat Munger and
Seymour of Michigan, while Chambers,1
a teammate, took second.
Wuerfel Adds Three Points
Ted Wuerfel added three more
points to the Maize and Blue total in
the two mile, when he handed Cap-
tain Fairfield a defeat in the battle for
second place, Abbott, the favorite, win-
ning the event.
In the track events the invading
team outscored the illini in respect to
first places as well as points. Michi-
gan taking five firsts to three for the
Gillmen, and annexing -40 of the 72
possible points.
The Orange and Blue supremacy on
the field, however, proved the decid-
ing factor in the meet, the Indians
outscoring the Wolverines 48 to 15 in
the weights, jumps and pole vault.
If the Farrellmenhad been able to
score a few more points in the field
events, the outcome of the meet might
have proved to be different.
The victory evened the 12 year re-
cord between the two schools in dual
meet competition, each having won six
times. It also marks the first time
that the Illini captured the verdict
since 1925, three defeats having been
sustained at the hands of Farrell-
coached teams.

WASHINGTON, May 19.-The House
was virtually twiddling its thumbs for'
lack of work today; but in the Senate
the tax debate draggedon hour after
hour. Chiefly it involves the estate
tax row and party lines were non-ex-
istent as the Senate 'rejected 43 to
30 the Bingham proposal to abolish
federal collections on inherited
wealth, and other proposals to modi-
fy them.
A handful of Senate bills were put
through the House, then that body
settled down to a drowsy afternoon of
speechmaking. Aside from its expect-
ed struggle with the farm relief veto
and final action as to Muscle shoals,
still in conference, it had nothing
more to do of major importance be-
fore it shuts up shop and sets out
for Kansas City or Houston.
Senate interchanges today over de-
lay on tax legislation made it plain
that all hands understood it is the
Boulder dam fight which is imped-
ing things legislative, although it was
not specifically mentioned. A stormy
plea from Senator Robinson, Demo-
cratic field marshall, to catch up on
the tax debate and make sure of ad-
journment next Saturday brought no
definite response.

give a \physician's reasons for liv-
ing on a non-meat diet, and at 6 o'-
clock in the Union ball room on "How
to Live Long and Well."
In Dr. Kellogg's first lecture, which
is being presented under the auspices
of the Tolstoy Centenary committee, '
Dr. Kellogg will contrast the reasons
of those people .who favor a vegetar-
ian diet for health purposes hwith
those of Tolstoy and his followers,
who were opposed to meat-eating for
ethical reasons. Tolstoy's philosophy
saw in all living things something of
the divine.
Dr. Kellogg will then address the
Cosmopolitan club at their annual
banquet, which is being held in hon-
or of the graduating members of the
club: In this talk, he will further dis-
cuss health as regulated by the diet,
and why meat eating is detrimental.
In addition to being supervisor and
surgeon of the Battle Creek sanitar-
ium, Dr. Kellogg is well known for
his works on medical subjects. He has
written several books, magazine ar-
ticles, and technical papers, and many
articles on dietetics. He is president
of the Battle Crek college, editor of
the Good Health magazine, and found-
er of the Race Bettermient society,
which has recently held a convention
of much importance.
Dr. Kellogg's first lecture in Natur-
al Science auditorium, will be open
to the public. Tickets for the Cosmo-
politan club banquet are priced at
$1'for members and $1.25 for all oth-
ers. H. C. Chang is in charge of the
reservations and should be called at
once by all those wishing to attefid
the dinner.
An unusually attractive and unique
tour will be taken this summer by a
specially selected group of ten men
students under the leadership of Oak-
ley C" Johnson of the Rhetoric de-
partment. This small group will con-
fine its itinerary to seven European
cities, where it intends to concen-
trate in the fields of art, drama, and
Mr. Johnson and the members of
his tour will be entertained in Eur-
ope throughout their trip by students

Guarantee Bondholders Seats Between
30 Yard Lines; Home Game
Tickets Limited
Plans for the student seats at the
football games next fall were an-
nounced yesterday by Harry Tillot-
son, business manager of the Athletic

35 yard line.
All bondholders will have seats
guaranteed between the 30 yard lines,
and regular student, faculty, and
alumni seats will occupy the rest of
the stadium, which includes seats out-
side of the 30 yard lines and on the
The plans for the cheering section
are altered this year so that members
of all four undergraduate classes may
apply, inste'ad of restricting the cheer-
ing section to the upper three class-

The ticket limits for the home
games next year were also announced.
Applications for tickets to three games

Shortly after the explosion rocked
the districts, the mine telephones in
a shed near the mine tinkled. This
line carried word to the surface fromd
the living tomb. Tom Callaghan, vet-

He said, "I have 15 men with me. We'
are trapped some 3000 feet back. We

don't know how long it will last."
PITTSBURGH, May 19.-The U. S.

ports were that many miners had
been entombed.

DERBY, Ct., May 19.-Yale's un-
beaten varsity eight finished four
lengths ahead of Cprn'A r id six

angular regatta on the Housatonic

the way from the start. The official

to bring Michigan's total to four. Wis-
consin also made a desperate attempt
to go 'ahead in their portion of the
same inning but the rally was closed
down after two Badgers had crossed
the disc.
Interest Is Tense
The scoring was concluded, but/the
game still held intense interest right
up to the nm'oment when Cuisinier
made a vain attempt to steal second
following his single in the final
-While Michigan was thus continu-
ing an unbroken string of victories,
Illinois spoiled Iowa's hopes of a pos-
sible title by taking -the first game
of a double header with the Hawk-
eyes 4 to 0. Coach Vogel's outfit came
back to take the second encounter
4 to 2, but the upset inflicted by the
Indians in the first game eliminated
Iowa from the race and cinched the
title for the Michigan nine.
With but two Conference games left
on the schedule, chances of the Wol-
verines to go through the season with-
out a blot one their record seem to be
particularly bright. Ohio State is the
only Big Ten team that can upset the
Wolverines and regardless of the re-
sults of these two games, Coach Fish-
er's team will be the 1928 champions.
Have 19 Victories
Including the spring training trip,
the Michigan team has won 19 out of
22 games. During the preliminary
tilts, the Wolverines dropped a game
to both Cincinnati and Vanderbilt
which with the Harvard fiasco during
the regular season have been the only
defeats chalked up so far.
The work of McAfee and Asbeck,
the two aces on the Michigan pitching
staff has been a strong factor in the
sensational record made in the games
against Conference opponents. As-
beck in the opening ontest against
Northwestern limited the Purple team
to two hits both of which came in the
ninth innings. McAfee, in his first
two starts, hurled shutout ball, blank-
ing both Purdue and Indiana.
The same terrific hitting that has
characterized every Michigan game
this year was noted in the Wisconsin
gsame whpm the / Wolverines came
through with ten safe} hits. The day
before playing against the tailend
Wildcats at Evanston, the Varsity
batsmen fattened their averages to the
tune of 11 hits.
These totalscame on top of a con-
ference season which had netted the
Varsity an average of .311 and it is
safe to presume that the team average
was little harmed in the two con-
flicts that cinched the first undisputed
championship in a major sport for
Michigan in more than a year and
the first baseball championship in two
The score by innings of the Wiscon-
sin game is as follows:

(Special to The Daily)
MADISON, May 19.-Michigan won
its tenth consecutive game and cinch-
ed the Big Ten baseball title as well
by defeating Wisconsin here today 4
to 3 in a close game. McAfee, Wolver-
ine hurler, turned in another well
pitched game, limiting the Badger
clubbers to six scattered hits while
the slugging Michigan team was
pounding Jacobson for 10 safe blows.
The Wolverines got off to a one
run lead in the opening frame but
Wisconsin tied the score in their half.
After another scoreless frame, Michi-
gan again dented the rubber in the
McAfee continued to mow down the
batters in the Wisconsin lineup with
ease while Jacobson escaped further
punishment until the lucky seventh
when he was taken for two more runs



"The proposed amendment to the I
Constitution of the Union, designed
to put the offices of President and Re-
cording Secretary on a merit basis,
seems so desirable as hardly to be
open to doubt," stated Professor Ev-
ans Holbrook, professor of law and'
financial secretary of the Union, in an
interview yesterday.
During his acquaintance with sev-
eral student activities, Professor Hol-
brook said that one after another,
these activities have made a change

have been' most obvious to any one
who has observed the history of
those activities," he stated.
The proposed change involves six
sections of the Union's Constitution
and in the opinion of Professor Hol-
brook these changes are of such a
nature that they cannot fail to result
in a far greater effectiveness of the
Union in serving the student body.
