On the 22nd anniversary of Finland's independence, Russian troops
were reported to have driven almost a fifth of the way across northern
Finland from Kandalaksha (1). They were reported to have reached
Kuolajarvi (2), presumably heading for Rovaniemi (3), where the
Arctic highway connects with a rail line running down to the port of
Kemi (4). From Kuolajarvi is 150 miles to the Swedish border, just be-
yond which lie the Swedish iron mines. (5). Two Finnish refugee boats
were reported sunk near Varangerf ford (6). Finns were reported to
have sent air raiders over Baltiski ('7).

4 p.m. Sunday in Hill Auditorium as
a complimentary Christmas presen-

It is rather significant that the
four singers who have been invited
to appear in the "Messiah", Beal
Hober, soprano, Joan Peebles, con-
tralto, William Hoin, tenor, and
Theodore Webb, baritone, are all
Americans who have attained fore-
front positions as oratorio singers,
President Charles A. Sink of the
School of Music, said last night.
"America's golden contralto" is the
name which is often applied to Miss
Peebles because of her work in such
oratorios as "Stabat Mater," "Saint
Paul" and "Hora Novissimo" as well
as in the "Messiah." She also has
been heard with the leading sym-
phony orchestras of the country.
Mr. Webb has also been active in
oratorio work and has been acclaimed
for his efforts by music critics
throughout America. He appeared
in Ann Arbor in 1934 and 1935, tak-
ing part in the May Festival pro-

The gay nineties were not so gay
when the local militia and students
fought it out on the corner of Divi-;
sion and Jefferson streets on the,
night of Nov. 13, 1890.
As a result of this almost pitchedt
battle, one University student, Irving
J. Dennison, '94, died from a rupture
of the artery under the skull, two
other students were seriously injured,
suffering blows in the back and in1
the neck, and Sergeant Granger of
the militia, after undergoing an oper-
ation for the removal of a piece of1
steel from his skull, was in a critical,
condition for several months.-
At the coroner's inquest held after
the death of Dennison the more or
less biased testimony of the various
witnesses revealed the facts of the
Shots Fired At WeddingE
At about 9 p.m. on Nov. 13, 1890,
Ann Arbor resounded with sounds of
the sharp firing by the local militia
celebrating the marriage of one of
their numbers. The shots were allf
blanks, but the firing itself was in
direct violation of the orders of Mayor
Manly who had warned the militia
there was to be no shooting, even of
blanks, during that evening's cele-
The University students of that
era, hearing the firing, and never
missing the opportunity to "be in on
the fireworks," rapidly assembled in
front of the Division Street house
where the marriage dinner was tak-
ing place and where the militia were
After part of Company A, which
was doing the firing and celebrating,
had fired several volleys, the com-
pany passed into the house, carrying
their guns with them. By this time
the students had fully assembled and
organized, havingialready given the
then famed "University yell." Thei
students then called for a speech by
one of the militia. After several
yells of "speech, speech," one of the
company came out in front of the
house and delivered a short, succint
talk. He said: "This is the biggest
crowd of ignorant people I ever saw."
He then quickly retired to the com-
parative security of the house.
Militia Believed Intoxicated
According to several of the wit-
nesses this militiaman, who shortly
afterward again returned to the front
of the house and ordered the students
to disperse, was highly intoxicated.
A condition which was allegedly,
shared with most of the militiamen
and many of the students on that
particular night.
Soon the militiamen filed out of
the house and marched down Divi-
sion Street, followed by the mob of
b 1

students who were, in turn, followed
by a large group of townspeople.
Somewhere during this march, the
soldiers considered themselves in-1
sulted and Sergeant Granger, who was
in command, unsheathed his sword,
waved it wildly in the air and com-
manded "Give 'em hell boys." Im-
mediately, according to student testi-
mony, the militia using the butt ends
of their guns as clubs, charged into
the students while the students, in
retaliation, picked up stones, and
various sized sticks and counterat-
tacked. It was in this scuffle that
Dennison was struck over the head
and received the injuries that at 5:30
a.m. brought about his death.
The repercussions of the battle of
Division street continued for, several
weeks. The Daily of that era ran an
editorial condemning the incident and
stating: "The affair of last evening
was the most serious and lamentable
that has darkened the history of our
alma mater for many years." The
editors promised that a "searching
examination will be undertaken and
justice will be done."
