Against McNeal,

By Sheldon C. Fullerton
Michigan's "Tireless Wonders"
and the equally long winded nine
from Michigan State played a ball
game yesterday. In fact, they al-
most played two ball games, and
when. the shades of night fell on
Ferry field they were still trying to
go through their paces for the
handful of fans that turned down
their dinners just to see which team
could last the longest. Finally, con-
vinced that neither side could do
anything about the situation, the
umpire called the game on account
of darkness, with the score knotted
at 3-3, and nothing gained for an
aftcrnioon of hard work.
All in all, it was an afternoon of
some of the most nerve-wracking
baseball that has bean. on tap at
Ferry field in many a day. Charley
Griffin, one of those left handed
twirlers that usually can weave a
pell over the Wolverines each and
every time he takes the mound
against them, was on the mound
for the Spartans..Opposing him was
the bespectacled H a r 1 e y McNeal,
who had already turned in a victory
over Illinois on the home diamond.
Single Scores Two Runs.
Thanks to some fancy fieldng on
the part of Kenny Manuel and to
an equally single that sent two runs
scurrying across the plate by that
same player, Michigan was very
much in. the ball game when the
iinth minning rolled aiound. All Mc-
Neal had to do was to retire three
more State batters and the game
was in. Four men faced the Wol-
verine hurler in the ninth. He re-
tired three of them without trouble,
but he made the fatal mistake of
groving the ball for the fourth. Abe
Eliowitz, who also does quitq a bit
of footballing for Michigan. State,
caught ahold of the cripple and
when he stopped runnng he had
left first base, second base, third
base, and the plate behind him.
From the twelfth inning to the
finish Jack Tompkins took over the
hurling duties for the Maize and
Blue. The shift was made in the
eleventh when Douglas was sent in
to hit for McNeal. Griffin went the

Name Captain for Spring Games
at Meeting; Freshmen to
Convene Tonight.
A handful of sophomores, sole
upholders of Michigan's waning
college spirit among the second
year men, gathered last night in
the Union and named William Mc-
Roy, '34E, to captain the class in
the traditional Spring Games Fri-
day and Saturday.
Freshmen will select their leader
tonight when they meet at 7:30
o'clock in the Assembly hall of the
Union. T. Hawley Tapping, secre-
tary of the Alumni association, will
address the first year men, and a
smoker will follow.
The small assembly of sopho-
mores last night was addressed by
Prof. John H. Muyskens, of the
speech rdepartment, who described
the underclass contest as a "safety
valve" for the energy that is re-
pressed by University life.
Professor Muyskens urged the
students to be individual and stand
by themselves. "Education is just
an addition, of so many facts," he
declared, pointing out that the Uni-
versity is inclined to "muzzle cour-
age in expression."
Joseph F. Zias, junior member of
the Student council, outlined to the
group a change in the rules for
the Spring Games this year. Under
the new regulation, a class that
does not appear at the Huron river
by 4 o'clock Friday afternoon will
forfeit all the points for Friday's
A rule against the kidnapping of
class captains was also presented
by Zias, as well as a requirement
that the winning team be responsi-
ble for the safe return of the rope.
Sweeping through five of the six
singles matches and one of the
doubles, the Wolverine netmen won
their second intercolegiate start of
the season by defeating Michigan
State in East Lansing yesterday,

of both teams.
Colby Ryan, captain of the Mich-
igan racquet wielders had Weitz,
Spartan number one player, to
match point twice in the final set,
but lost 6-3, 4-6, 9-7. Bob Clarke,
Johnny Reindel, Dick Snell and
Hank Pendell, however, all came
through to win the other singles
Pendell and Rollin Clark ac-
counted for the one doubles win
of the day, triumphing 6-4, 6-2.
The following have been selected
from the dentistry school for the
Honor guard today: Louis H. Mey-
ers, Raymond A. McCarthy, Henry
Walkotten, Bert H. Roberts, George

Importance of Being Earnest'
to Commemorate Theatre's,
'Third Anniversary.
In recognition of the fact that
Michigan has more and better
equipped dramatic stages than al-
most any other university, with the
possible exception of Yale, Play
Production will open a four-day
run tonight with a performance of
"The Importance of Being Earn-
est" dedicated to the third anniver-
sary of the opening of the Lydia

Supreme Court in Southwestern
State Declares Fraternity
Free From Taxes.
An opportunity to achieve the aim
of long years of agitation against
localtaxation of fraternities ineAnn
Arbor was seen last night when it
was revealed that the Beta Theta
Pi chapter here had been recently
incorporated for perpetual existence
which condition would probably ex-
empt the organization from all tax-
ation due to a state act covering
such associations.
Shelby J. Shourtz, Grand Rapids
attorney for the fraternity, stated
last night that it would be possible
for all Michigan fraternities to be-
come reincorporated under the act
and thus make themselves exempt
from the property taxes which so
long have threatened the existence
of many houses.
Follow Oklahoma Example.
The Michigan .statute, which is
believed to exempt certain organ-
s izations from the payment of taxes,
provides that all library, benevolent,
charitable, educational or scient-
I et institutions incorporated under
Sthe laws of Michigan owning and
operating on rural property sahll
be exempt from taxation. Since
Beta Theta Pi filed affidavits to the
effect that it was included in the
above group, it is believed that it
'will also be exempt.
Motivation for the articles of in-
corporation under the act was the
fact that the Oklahoma chapter of
Beta Theta Pi was declared exempt
by the Supreme Court in that state
after having filed under an exact
replica of the Michigan statute. The
Oklahoma court held that all prop-
erty belonging to scientific, educa-
tional, and benevolent institutions,
colleges or societies and devoted ex-
clusively to the appropriate objects
of such institutions, and that Beta
Theta Pi is incorporated in Oklaho-
ma to promote the educational,
moral and social culture and bene-
volent welfare of its members, and
its property being devoted and used
solely for the promotion of educa-
tional, moral, charitable and public
welfare, is exempt from taxation.
One Requirement Needed.
The only requirement needed for
Michigan frattrnities are that they
be incorporated under the state
laws and that they be occupying
the property for the purposes of
the corporation's creation. It is
considered likely that the Michigan
Supreme court, in view of its own
past decisions upon the tax exemp-
tion statute, would follow the Ok-
lahoma decision when the same so-
ciety is incorporated in the two
states for the same purpose under
tax exemption statutes which read
identically alike, especially as the
State of Michigan has given the;
Beta Theta Pi chapter here perpet-I
ual existence.I

Prof. Jesse S. Reeves, of the polit-

At the same time the Henry Russel

Lack of Proper International
Machinery Is Obstacle,
Director Says.
Lack of proper international ma-
chinery has been the stumbling
block in obtaining world peace,
according to Philip C. Nash, na-
tional director of the League of
Nations association, who addressed
a group of Ann Arbor people last
night on "Our Interest in the Peace
Machinery-Disarmament and the
Far East."
The League, Nash said, is quickly
becoming the center of all organ-
izations working for world peace.
The strong arm of the League lies
in its machinery to igather facts
and publish them.
World peace machinery must be
able to do four things, according to
Nash. First, it must make it possi-
ble to attack, on a world-wide scale
the fundamental problems of life,
such as economic and financial
Second, it must make it possible
to solve disputes betwen nations by
Disarmament is the third prob-
lem with which such a machine
would have to deal, according to
Nash. Nations are afraid to cut
down on their arms now, as they
fear war with some other country.
Last, Nash said, there must be
some sort of machinery to act as
a fire engine to put out any flames
of war which is liable to blaze
forth in any part of the world.
Poetry Prize Awarded
Professor Burklund
The $50 free verse poetry prize
presented by the Gypsy poetry
magazine of Cincinnati, was award-
ed to Dr. C. B. Burklund, professor
of English in the engineering col-
lege, of the University of Michigan.
Professor Burklund last year won a
similar award.
AE (George Russell), the Irish
poet, was the judge of this year's
contest. "Dilemma" was the title of
Dr. Burklund's poem.7

Swinging out in academic procession, seniors will inaugurate the
graduating exercises of the class of 1932 at 3:30 o'clock today when,
wearing for the first time their caps and gowns, they make a com-
plete circuit of the campus and finally gather in Hill auditorium for
the formal meeting.
Dr. Alexander Grant Ruthven will deliver the charge to the
graduating students. He will be the only speaker on the program.
As is customary, classes for seniors will be dismissed at 3 o'clock so
that all may attend the affair.
The procession to Hill auditorium, which will be led by the
Varsity band, will take the following route: down the diagonal in
'__a northwest direction, South on
State street, east on South Uni-
Glee Club Chooses versity avenue, north on East
Steino President University, and west on North

Plan to


Purchasing of Tickets '
for Senior Dance.
Beginning today, tickets for the
class' annual dance set for May 27
in the Union-will go on sale. They
are priced at five dollars.
But, by special arrangement, all
that is needed to hold a ticket is
one-dollar, an amount sufficient to
place it in safekeeping until May 16.
Then, if the remainder is not paid
on that date, the down payment is
automatically forfeited.
Depression? That's one reason.
Another-and the main object of
the plan-is to keep the dance lim-
ited to seniors. Not only will an
identification c a r d be necessary
when a ticket is purchased, but the
time between now and May 16 will
be utilized on checking up on those
who plan to attend.
Tickets will be placed on sale at
two places on the campus. Seniors
from all schools other than the col-
lege of Engineering can obtain
them in Angell Hall lobby. For en-
gineering students, a box office will
be located in Room 306 of West En-'
gineering building.
Committee c h a i r m e n for the
dance, which is to be summer for-
mal, have been announced by L. C.
Whitsit as follows: Music, Howard
Gould; Favors, Stanley Chase; Dee-,
orations, Howard Baldock; fl o o r,
Cullen Kennedy; invitations, Janice
Gillette; publicity, F. M. Welch; as-
sistant chairman, Kenneth McCal-
lum; tickets, Ralph Hardy.

The Honor Guard, a body of
picked students from every college
of the University will march direct-
ly behind the pand. Members of the
senior class will parade by colleges
in the order given below:
1. Seniors of the literary
college, who will meet on the
walk extending from the med-
allion to Waterman gymnasium.
2. Engineering school seniors
will meet on the diagonal south
of the Library.
3. Students in the arch~itec-
tural school will gather directly
behind the engineers on the
same walk.
4. Medical school seniors will
meet on the walk extending
toward University hall.
5. Law students meet at the
rear of the medical students on
the same walk.
6. Dental students on the
walk east of the Pharmacy
7. Seniors of the pharmacy
school will folow directly be-
hind the dentists.
8. Graduate students will
meet on the walk extending
southwest toward the Romance
Language building.
9. Education seniors will
Follow directly behind the grad-
uate students and meet on the
same walk.
10. Forestry Seniors will fol-

11. Nurses behind Forestry
12. Business Administration
school students Swill follow the
Members of the senior honorary
societies and the Honor Guard will
assist in the fomatlon of the ranks,
Sobriety and normal conduct
being necessary to .the continua-
tion of the Swingout tradition,
the Swingout committee and the
University request that members
of the class of 1932 act as gentle-
manly and ladylike as possible
during the ceremonies this after-
Richard L. Tobin, Swingout chair-
man, said last night. They will also
attempt to keep the marching as
orderly as possible.
In case of rain, the assembly will

Conditions in India under the

poetess and political leader, pro-
tests in the course of the letter
against the extremity of the police
measures forced upon the natives

ever, is not a despairing one, but is
tempered by the hope that the

"must meet success," although the
