Quality Of Work May Cause Senate
To Convene An Hour Earlier
Than Noon Each Day
By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Jan. 17.-Appre-
hension lest a legislative jam in,
the Senate block consideration of
the pending cruiser construction
bill today prompted Chairman
Hale of the naval committee to
demand longer daily sessions.
Hale, who is in charge of the
measure which would' provide for
15 cruisers and one aircraft car-
rier, temporarily yielded the floor
for work on a deficiency appropri-
ation bill today that in so doing
announced that hereafter he de-
sired the Senate to convene an
hour ahead of time of its usual'
meeting time at noon. Senate
leaders indicated this request
might be complied with beginning1

T- ns is a good Lime for the uni-
versity to keep its mouth shut," de-
clared Dr. Hugh Cabot of the Med-I
ical school, relative to the exten-
sive tuberculosis fight planned by
Gov. Fred W. Green and the state
legislature. "The matter is entirely
up to the legislature and the uni-
versity should have nothing to say,
at this time." Although the plan
includes spending $750,000 in tu-
berculosis prevention and $500,000
for a tuberculosis sanitarium to be
located at Ann Arbor, Dr. Cabot
states that it will have no connec-
tion with the university.
He does not expect the plan to
materialize immediately, be stated,
characterizing the problems at
present as one of finding a way to
raise necessary funds.

Hayes A Fine Artist During
His Continental Tour
Appearing in Ann Arbor after a
triumphal season of concerts in
Europe, Roland Hayes, popular
negro tenor, will appear in a con-
cert tonight at 8:15 o'clock in Hill
auditorium as one of the regular
numbers on the current Choral
Union concert series.
Throughout Europe Hayes was
acclaimed a fine artist. Newspaper
reviewers were unanimous in their
high praise of the negro singer of
America, whose spirituals had
thrilled the audiences abroad.
Hayes has often been termed "a
singer of spirituals," but in reply
he has stated that he is not es-
sentially a singer of spirituals, but
rather that whatever moves him
in the spirituals also moves him in

Many famous audiences in music
capitals of the world have listened
to the Hayes' art. Packed audi-
ences have greeted this son of ex-
slaves wherever he has been sched-
uled for a coheert. Royalt of Eng-
land, Spain, and Holland have
been numbered among his listen-
ers. Editorials, magazines, books,
and special articles have paid trib-
ute to him. In fact, the famed
negro has enjoyed unusual success.
The program for his perfor-
mance tonight includes Beethov-
en's, "Adelaide," Schubert's "Die
Krahe," "DieNebensonnen,"' and
"Wobin," "Rachmaninofft," "Songs
of Georgia," and four specially se-
lected negro spirituals.

remaining three being in the fa-

There are two autographs each
of Berthier, Lannes, Lauriston,
Maret, Marmont, Massena, Murat,
Soult, and Suchet. These are the
signatures of the most famous of
the generals, marshalls, and cabi-
(net members.
There are many letters of excep-
tional interest. A letter from Mar-
shall Davout is signed as "Prince
of Eckmuhl," and directed to the
Emperor himself contains a nota-
tion upon its face signed by
Napoleon. While Marshall MuratI
was King of Naples he signed a
letter in the form "Joachim Napo-
leon," which he used as his title
while king. The letter is a per-
sonal letter to Cardinal Fesch, who
was the uncle of Napoleon, and also
of Caroline Napoleon, Murat's wife.
In 1811 Maret, then the Minister
of Foreign Affairs, sent out a cir-
cular letter to the French Consuls
in various parts of the world asking1
them to invite the competition of'
inventors with reference to im-
proved methods of spinning cotton.
This collection contains the letter
which was sent to the New York
consul. It displays Napoleon's
great interest in industrial affairs.

Exciting Tilt From Spectators'
Standpoint; Lead Changed
Hands Several Times
By Cleland Wyllie
YPSILANTI, Jan. 17. - Tables
were turned here tonight when the
Michigan Junior Varsity defeated
Michigan State Normal college, 27
to 26, in a hard fought and excit-
ing contest. It was the first defeat
f for Ypsi in six games.
Most of the excitement was
crammed' into the last half, since
the Wolverine Cubs forged into an
(early lead in the initial period and
maintained it with ease although a
Normal rally in the closing min-
utes brought the score from 14 to
3 up to 16 to 10.
Margin Lost Quickly
This margin soon faded away
under the Ypsilanti onslaught and
with the Normal's offensive click-
ing in perfect order the lead soon
changed hands when Giles drop-
ped in a basket making the score
18 to 17. Weinstein's free throw
was the lone point for Michigan
during this spirited rally.
From this point on the tilt was
somewhat wild and nerve racking
to watch. Whitney added a free
throw following Whittle's foul to
I bring the score 19 to 17 and Shaw
evaded the tight "B" defense to
toss in a goal from inside the free
throw line giving Ypsi a four point
lead. Cushing was then put into
the Junior Varsity lineup and soon
connected for a long shot from the
side to pare the margin in half.
Whittle Evens Score
Whittle evened the count again
on a short shot, but with the
teams battling evenly and hard
Weinstien fouled Shaw. The pen-
alty shot broke the tie again and
Giles broke away to sink another
basket under the hoop. Leading
then, 24 to 21, the Normal played
a cautious game and controlled the
ball very well, but Cushing brought
the "B" team back into the fight
with a push shot from a mixup
under the backet and then pro-
ceeded to dribble through the Ypsi
defense for the goal that put
Michigan back into the lead, never
to be headed again.
Middlestat then fouled Barley,
an expensive infraction of the
rules, since - the Junior Varsity
guard sank both gift shots and the
two points thus added to the
Michigan total offset Shaw's tipin
following Whitney's unsuccessful
free throw. The game ended as the
quintets were fighting for the ball
