Report Heavy Fighting In Vicinit
Of Monterey, Strategic Railway

MEXICO CITY, March 5.-The
Mexican government got into ae-
tion today with its counter offen-
sive against the revolution.
Former President Calles took
over command of the government
forces which will campaign against
the northern insurgents in Sonora
while General Almacan took the
field against the rebels at Vera
Heavy fighting was reported
from' the vicinity of Monterey, im-
portantstrategic railway, center in
the state of Nuevo Leon, where a
battle beginning yesterday was still
in progress.
The rebels claimed to have cap-
tured Monterey, but this was
denied by General Cerevra in
command of the federal forces at
Matamoras, who said that the city
had not fallen,
Federal troops were reported to
have driven in some of the out-
posts of the rebels in Vera Cruz.
Direct advices from the city of
Vera Cruz stated that the ships of
the Mexican navy stationed there
had declared for the rebel cause.
No fighting had been reported
there and the city was stated to
be quiet although entirely isolated
from the rest of the country.
The government, in addition to
its military offensive, struck an-
other blow at the insurgents, an-
nouncing that all the property of
rebel leaders would be forfeited.

"In The Next Room"
Will Be Mines' New
Mystery Melodrama
Theatrical Effects Will Intensify
Illusion Of Mystery That
Haunts Audience
In response to numerous re-
quests for a mystery play at Mimes
theater, "In The Next Room," a
mystery melodrama by Eleanor
Robson and Harriet Ford, is be-
ing produced by Mimes for a run
in the near future.
E. Mortimer Shuter, director of

Mhues, has been asked a number
of times to produce a mystery play
among his presentations for the
current season and selected "In
The Next Room" for its remarkable
adaptability to the stage. No an-'
nouncement has been made re-
garding the personnel of the cast.
Many novel features are planned
in connection with the presenta-
tion. The entire house is to be
dark at all times in a concentrated
effort to maintain the illusion of
mystery.. In addition, the regular
Mimes theater orchestra will have
their faces whitened in order to
add to the effect. During the in-
termission, the musical number to
be played will be Chopin's "Fu-
neral March." The ushers will use
searchilights to conduct the pat-
trons through the completely dark
house. In fact, everything will be
done to bring out the mystery

but, even worse than this, they

The Michigan Daily feels
that there is enough inherent
good sportsmanship on this
campus to defend these five
students, and to make what lit-
tle atonement is possible for
the student body. The money
to pay the damage must be
obtained, and it seems fitting
that it should come from the
vast body of students. who
were present at the scene of
destruction. It will 1e a vindi-
cation in some actual sense of
the square-dealing of the
Michigan student body. To
make five students suffer for
the acts of a large group of
the student body is highly un-
sportsmanlike, and The Daily
calls upon all members of the
student body to assert their
manliness in making a con-
crete demonstration of their
willingness to accept, as a body,
the responsibility which has
fallen upon them by reason of
rash and destructive actions.
The editors of The Daily dis-
cussed early yesterday morning
a plan whereby the student
body could be called upon to
make some fair settlement as a
body. While they were still in
conference the following let-
ter came into the office accom-
panied by a check for one dol-
"The student body of. Michi-
gan deplores the rowdyism and
depredation indulged in by an
unrepresentative group of its
members on Monday evening
following the Wisconsin game.'
The vast majority of students
neither indulged in nor con-

done the acts of the minority,
for whose behavior the entire
University must suffer in repu-
tation. In the hope that those
who engaged in vandalism may
realize how their acts must be
regarded by the student body
as a whole, I suggest that The
Daily sponsor a movement
among the student body for
1500 one dollar contributions to
repay the Michigan Theatre
'management for the property
damages wrought. I am en-
closing my check for $1.00."
The letter is signed by a
graduate student. He has set
the spirit for the Michigan
student body - a challenge
which The Daily feels they will
take up and carry to a finish.
Already the fund has been in-
creased by the addition of $15
contributed by 15 members of
the upper staff of the editorial
department of The Daily.
Are you willing to accept the
challenge made by this gradu-
ate student and The Daily? Do
you feel that five students
should be made to suffer for
the acts of a large section of
the student body? Your an-
swer may best be voiced by
your check-for any amount-
made payable to The Michigan
Daily "Michigan Student Vin-
dication Fund." Starting to-
morrow an actual record of the
progress of this collection will
be published until the amount
is Aubscribed and the honor
of the student body is vindi-
The outcome of th-s appeal
means more than any athletic
or competitive victory; it is a
test which goes to the very
heart of the student body and
challenges its morale, and the
sportsmanship of that vast body
of students known to the world
as "Michigan Men."
Men of Michigan, The Daily
appeals to you to uphold
those standards which have
been upheld bravely for ninety
years without blemish! The
start has been made. Now it
depends on you! Ask yourself
what the honor of the student

Hoover Entertains Former Teacher
At First Luncheon In
White House
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, March 5.-His
first day in the presidency was a
mighty busy one for Herbert
Hoover, and, for all appearances,
a mighty happy one.
His days' activities extended all
the way from a decision of major
policy, that of non-interference
with present regulations regarding
the shipment of arms into Mexico
to reminiscenses of his boyhood
days in West Branch, Iowa, with
his one-time schoolteacher, Mrs.
Mollie Carran, who was his lunch-
eon guest at the White House.
Between times he touched shoul-
ders with the plain folks who
called upon him by the hundreds;
received members of the Republi-
can National Committee in a
group; chatted with the governors
of several states who were here for
the inauguration, and transacted
a large amount of public business.
Prompt favorable action by the
Senate on his cabinet nominations
added to the pleasure of his day,
during which he not only appear-
ed of unruffled by the many inter-
ruptions of his work, but smiled
broadly during his several public
appearances to pose for pictures
with some of his callers.
Meeting the newspaper corre-
spondents at noon in his first
press conference as president, he
made jocular comments as nearly
200 news writers streamed into his
office, jamming it from wall to wall
and overflowing around, his desk.
The president, wearing a suit -of
blue, his favorite color, but with
a single breasted coat, told the
correspondents that he not only
wanted to continue the usual con-
tact with them, but wished to de-
vise methods by which these could
be improved to the mutual benefit
of the press and himself.
