Lead of Opponents.
Gathering in four runs in the
ninth and tenth innings, Michigan
broke its long slump yesterday aft-
ernoon at Ferry field by winning a!
slow game from Oberlin college by
a 6-5 count. Oberlin held the edge
throughout the game until the
last two innings, when the Wolver-
ines, aided by four walks and five
hits were able to drive the winning
run across the plate.
The Oberlin hurler, Butzbereer
kept the Michigan batters well in
hand until the ninth when he was
nicked for four hits. Up to this time
he had allowed but five safe blows,
one a home run by Tompkins in
the first, and a double by Hudson in
the fourth frame. His team-mates
during this time were collecting

Juniors to Choose Degrees.
The term 'degree program' is un-
derstood to mean 60 or more semes-
ter hours of work suitable for jun-!
iors and seniors, arranged to in-
clude a logical sequence of courses
in some one field together with re-
quired or suggested courses in re-
lated fields and a number of free
electives. Students who have com-
pleted in the general program'-at
least 60 hours, have earned as many
points as hours, and have satisfied
such other requirements as the
faculty may impose, may apply for
admission to candidacy for a de-
gree, according to the plan.
Requirements Outlined.
The application must specify the
degree program which the student
desires'to elect,'and must bear the
approval of the authorized repre-
sentative of the group responsible1
for the administration of the de-
gree program. Applications for ad-
mission to candidacy for a degree
when approved, and when the hours
and points have been verified, shall
be granted automatically. There-
after the elections of each student
must be approvad by the authorized
representative of the group re-

Untimely Death Concludes More
Than 40 Years Service
- at Michigan.
Funeral Services Will be Held
at St. Andrew's Church
on Saturday.
Dean George Washington Patter-
on, 3rd, associate dean of the Col-
leges of Engineering and Archi-
ecttre, died yesterday afternoon at
he University hospital following an
llness of six weeks. t
President Alexander G. Ruthven,
=ommenting on the death of Dean
Patterson, last night, said:
"The loss of Professor Patterson
will be felt by students, faculty, and
residents of Ann Arbor. His stu-
dents knew him as a friend always
to be relied upon. His colleagues
admired him for his interest in the
University and his scholarly at-
tainments. His fellow citizens re-
cognized in him a public-spirited
gentleman. Seldom is it given to a
man to be so generally loved and
Faculty Mourns Loss.
In a statement issued last night
by Dean Herbert C. Sadler, of the
engineering college, he said. "An
intimate acquaintance with George
Patterson, both as a colleague on
the faculty and as my associate in
the administration of the College
of Engineering, I can truly say that
I consider him one of the outstand-
ing men, not only in this college,
but in the University. Besides be-
ing a man of narked ability as a
scientist, his knowledge extended
over other and wider fields of learn-
ing, which added considerably to his
influence and effectiveness with the
students. His lovable nature and
fine character endeared him to all
who were privileged to know him.
We all mourn his loss, but he will
ever remain to us an example of the
finest type of an American gentle-
Dean John R. Effinger, of the
literary college, spoke highly of him
and stated, "In the death of Dean
Patterson the University has lost
one of its finest men. His absolute
honesty, his fair-mindedness, and
his great kindliness, have made all
who knew him his friends and ad-
mirers. Coming from eastern Uni-
versities some 40 years ago, he has
so identified himself with Michigan
that we have had no more 1i;a
or devoted friend."
Achieved Many Honors.
Dean Patterson was born at Cor-
ning, New York, in 1864. He at-
tained the degree of Bachelor of
Arts at Yale in 1884. - Drawn to-
ward science by his proficiency in
mathematics, he entered the Mas-
sachusetts Institute of Technology
where he received his Bachelor of
Science in 1887. Then, complying
with a wish of his father that he
should become acquainted with the
fundamentals of law, he spent the
next year as a student in the Harv-
ard Law school.
In the autumn of 1889, he came
to Ann Arbor as instructor in phy-
sics and rose to be a junior pro-
fessor in that subject. From 1901
to 1905. hetwas junior professor and
from 1905 to 1915 professor of elec-
trical engineering in the depart

ment, subsequently college, of en-
gineering. Since 1915 he has been
head of the department of engi-
neering mechanics. In 1922 he was
appointed assistant dean and in

Plov Production Bids

Antigone' to Open on,
with Margaret A:
in Title Role.


Robert Henderson will open the
first production of the Dramatic
Festival series Monday night with
Sophocles' "Antigone" following a
rehearsal performance in Kalama-
zoo tonight. The company will re-


turn to Ann Arbor tomorrow and{
prepare for the first presentation.
For the "Antigone" the entire
lighting system of the Lydia Men-
delssohn theatre will be used. This
is the first time since the opening
of the theatre that this has been
done, and Saturday and Sunday
will be given over to planning many
novel effects.
Miss Margaret Anglin, who has
played the title role in New York
and San Francisco companies, will
star in this production.
The box office in the Lydia Men-
delssohn theatre will be open every
day for ticket sale and advance re-
servations. There will be perform-
ances every night next week except
Tuesday. Matinee performances
will be given Tuesday, Wednesday,
Thursday, and Saturday afternoons.
Seats have been reserved by many
prominent Detroit and Chicago cri-
tics for the opening. Mr. Gordon
Mendelssohn, whose generosity
made possible the theatre, will be
attending his first play in the the-
atre, named after his sister.

Sentman is Threat.
Michigan should be able to place -
in the hammer, discus, mile relay,
two mile run, broad jump, pole
vault, shot, and javelin, with Holly
Campbell, Brooks, Sanderson, Aus-
tin. Fitzgibbons, Chapmap, Pottle,
Captain Poorman, and Brubaker I
turning in distances which will
merit them a place in the scoring.
The chief Illinois strength will be,
found in the hurdles with Sentman,
one of the best in the country, and
Rodgers entered in these events.
McDermont in the pole vault is also
considered as a sure place winner,
while Carr and Miller are two
strong high jumpers who can be
counted on to add points to the
Illinois total. Mackeever in the
mile, Chambers in the javelin, and
Hampden in the 440 will also make
a strong bid in the Illini fight for
I their third straight title.
For the Buckeyes, the chief
threat appears to be in Simpson
in the dashes and Rockaway in the
hurdles. Rockaway holds the
world record in the low hurdles
and should win from Sentman and
Rodgers of Illinois in this race.
Chief among the other Ohio con-
tenders are Strothers, 440 yard star.
Butler in the high jump, Hoover in
the javelin, and Hanover in the
mile race.
A well balanced Badger squad of
cinder path stars will try to break
into the ranks of the favored. Sam-
my Behr will in all probability run
away with the shot put, and may
figure greatly in the discus and
high jump. Tod Shaw is a high
jumper of note and may account
for a first in this event. Golds-
worthy and Thompson are possibil-

Two Die, Nine Injured as Steel
Structure Collapses.
(By Associated Press)
NEW YORK, May 23.-With a
roar heard for blocks, the; four
story steel skeleton of a bakery un-

11th avenue, collapsed today andj
carried two workmen to their I
death. Nine were injured.
The dead were Otto Helves, 30,
and Albert Schwanke, 30, carpenter,
and roommates. They fell together,
clinging to a steel girder.
The cause of the collapse was not
immediately determined , although!
there were unconfirmed reports
that the crash of a derrick had1
preceded it. The crash attracted a
tremendous crowd and police were
called to preserve order.
Patrolman John Morrissey, pa-
trolling his beat, had stopped for a
moment to watch 60 iworkmen busy
four stories above him putting thej
final touches to the steel frame-

As he stood idly twirling his
stick, he sawa girder sway, then
another, and before he could cry
out the whole steel skeleton seem-

for a fire alarm box. With a roa-
