Announcement by the Gargoyle
that 5 cents will be contributed of
every 15 collected from campus and

news stand sales today, and the
passing of the $100 mark were the
features of yesterday's progress of
The Daily's Student Vindication
fund toward its goal of $800. The
money is being collected to reim-
burse the management of the
Michigan theater for damage sus-
tained in Monday night's riot fol-
lowing the basketball victory over
Wisconsin. Eight hundred dollars
is the final estimate of the damage
made by Gerald Hoag, manager of
the Michigan.
,itouncil Continues Drive
With one ighth of the, total
subscribed in two days, members
of the Student council continued
the drive for damage funds which
was organized at their regular
Wednesday night meeting. The
co ncil'is undertaking to canvas
every fraternity and sorority on
the campus. No reports were re-
ceived yesterday from council
workers whose drive will be con-
tinued the rest of the week.
Yesterday's contributions of $21
increased the grand total from $80
to $101, which was the figure as
The Daily went to press this morn-
ing. Expressions of ' loyalty to
Michigan's ideals of sportsmanship
and honor were again received
from all parts of the campus, from
faculty members and from towns-
Last night means were being
considered to reach independent
groups on the campus as well as
those organized in fraternities and
sororities. Comparatively few dol-
lars w e r e received yesterday
through the mails, contrary to the
expectation of those in charge of
the fund. The possibility was men-
tioned of a house-to-house canvas
of student rooming places and
dormitories in order to rush the
damage fund total over the top
before the end of the week.
Gargoyle To Help
It is estimated that the Gar-;
goyle's 2-1 split on cash sales to-
day of the March issue will boost
the fund by $20 or $25. Due to
yesterday's inclement weather
first-day sales of the new issue
were low, indicating that the ma-a
jority of redears would purchase
their copies today.
Present plans of The Daily edi-
tors in charge of the fund indicate,
that the drive will continue until
its goal of $800 is reached. Checks
for any amount, made payable toj
The Michigan Daily, may be mail-
ed to The Daily's offices in the
Press building on Maynard street,

After considerable discussion the
Senior Law class committee decid-
ed in a meeting early this week
to do away with the custom this
year of providing a memorial for
the school when they are gradu-
ated. No memorial will be given at
this time because of the lack of
sufficient funds to provide a suit-
able gift, it was agreed.
G. B. Christensen '29L instructed
the secretary of the class, who will!
become the alumni secretary, to
circularize the graduating .class so
that in 1937, at the time of the
centennial celebration of the,
founding of the University, a sub-
stantial memorial may be given.

Western Conference track ath-
letes were swarming into Iowa City
today for the nineteenth annual
Big Ten indoor track meet to be
held for the second time in the big
Iowa field house. Preliminary heats
in the 60 yard dash, the 70 yard
high hurdles, and the half mile run
were to be run off today with the

ten conference schools, five teams

championship, held at present by
Illinois. The Illini are again the
real favorites but the contentions
of Chicago, Iowa, Wisconsin, and
Ohio State can not be disregarded.
The Michigan squad of 16 left yes-
terday afternoon and seems cer-
tain of winning a few places in
the various events.
Hurdle Mark Seems Doomed
Marks in at least three events,
the high hurdles, the two mile run
and the pole vault, appear to be In
danger at the meet this year with
a possibility that the dash mark of
:06.3 set last year by Simpson of
Ohio, may be equalled.
A field. of half a dozen first class
lurdlers seems to make a new
mark for the 70-yard event certain
with Rodgers and Sentmen of Illi-
nois, Rockway and Pierce of Ohio,
and Allison and Saling of Iowa en-
tered. Illinois will be the chief as-
saultant on' the two mile time of
9:26.4 made in 1926 by Chapman
of Wisconsin, with Abbott and Stine
available. Abbott should be the
easy winner.
Vault Mark In Danger
The pole vault finds Tom Warne
of Northwestern and Henry Canby
of Iowa, planning to surpass 13
:eet 2% inches, made last year by
Droegemueller of the Wildcats.
Warne has already surpassed the
mark in practice by vaulting 13
feet 6 inches, while Canby has done
the same with 13 feet 4% 'inches.
George Simpson of Ohio, will be
favored to equal. his 60-yard dash
time, but few concede him the
chance of breaking the time he
made last year, :06.3. A field of
Tolan, Michigan; Larsen, Wiscon-
sin; Root, Chicago; Rockway,
Ohio, and Timn of Illinois, should
extend Simpson to his best.
The half mile and the 440 may
also tumble. Iowa with 42 entries
leads the Big Ten schools, with the
others as follows: Wisconsin, 29;
Minnesota, 27; Chicago, 26; North-
western, 25; Indiana and Ohio
State, 23 each; Michigan, 16, and
Purdue, 4.

DETROIT, March 7.-A super
March wind, with velocities re-
ported as high as 50 miles' an hour
and temperatures as low as 18
degrees below zero, swept over
Michigan last night and today,
causing probably a million dollars
damage, taking several lives and
paralyzing telephope and tele-
graph communication.
In Detroit a man's skull was
fractured. The wind rolled him
downthe street. Adboy's leg was
broken as the wind carried him
into the street in front o n au-
tomobile. A $40,000 sign on the
roof of a downtown 'hotel was
broken down, endangering the
lives of patrons.
A dozen families were driven
into the streets in fires here last
night and today. Eleven persons,
seven of them women, were for&-

the crowd generally knew that a

Many Factors Involved
A number of factors contributed

took place.

off State street and gone along
Maynard street before going to Hill
