On Board Harding Funeral Train,
Roseville, Calif., Aug. 4-(By A.P.)-
The sorrow in the hearts, of the
American people over the death -of
their leader was exemplified today by
silent groups along the railroad side
as the special train bearing the body
of Warren G. Hargling traversed wes-
tern California and the wide reaches
of Nevada.
With bared heads they stood, some-
times in groups of hundreds, some-
times only a score and sometimes
singly. There was none too poor,
none too rich, none teo mighty or
none too humble to pay his mark of
respect to the memory of Mr. Har-
ding. They were conscious only of
showing their sorrow, but to those
on the funeral train they typified the
American people as a whole.
Saddest Journey
It was the same from early morn-
ing on through the day. It has been
the same since the train left San
Francisco at 7:15 last evening. It
will be -the same, throughout the
three-thousand-mile journey to Wash-
ington and, after that, the trip to
Marion, . The nation mourns as
the saddest transcontinental journey
in its historyhis atbing made.
T o 4*,ea ny Cortege
Mr. Coolidge exects to accompany
the funerad party to Marion. Until
his return to Washington he is not
expected to devote much attention to
matters otherĀ° than those pertaining
to therfuneral and burial of his pre-
decesor in office.
A mass of maail having acumulated
during his absence from Washington,
the new president devoted some time
today to disposal of pressing corres-
pondence, but had little of general
importance on his program for the
Washington, Aug. (4-($' A.IR)-
President Calvin Coolidge today is-
sued the following proclamation:
"By the President of the United
States of America, a Proclamation.
"In the inscrutable wisdom of di-
vine providence, Warren Gamaliel
Harding, twenty-ninth president of
the United States, has been taken
from us. The nation has lost a wise
and enlightened statesman and the
American people a true friend and
counsellor whose whole public life,
was inspired with the desire to pro-
mote the best interests of the United
citizens.' His private life was mark-
ed by gentleness and brotherly sym-
pathy and by the charm of his per-
sonality he made friends of all who
came in contact with him.
"It is meet that the deep grief
which fills the hearts of the Ameri-
can people, should find expression.
"Now therefore, I, Calvin Coolidge,
president of the United. States of
America, do appoint Friday next,
Aug. 10, the day on which the body
of the dead president will be laid
to his last earthly resting place, as
a -day - of mourning and prayer
throughout the United States.
"I earnestly recommend the peo-
ple to assemble on that day in their
respective places of divine worship
there to bow down in submission to
the will of Almighty God and to pay
out of full hearts the homage and
love and reverence to the memory of
the great and good president, whose
death has so sorely smitten the na-
"Calvin Coolidge."

Varsity Glee Clnb
To Attend.Musical
The University Glee club under the
direction of George Oscar Bowen is
planning to attend the annual musical
of the Big Ten Conference at Chicago
this fall.
This - will be the first time that
Michigan has put music on a com-
petitive basis. At the Conference the
best Glee club of the tight Big Ten
schools which have entered the com-
petition up to this time is chosen to
go to the annual National conference
at New York. Last year one of the
Big Ten clubs took fourth place there.
In order to make it possible to send
a Michigan representation to Chicago
there must be high grade material to
work with and Mr. Bowen hopes to
have enough of the right kind of try
outs to increase this year's member-a
ship to 80. Mr.. Bowen has just re-
cently taken the directing of the club

There are under consideration two

Special services in honorof the late
President Warren G. Harding will be
held in Ann Arbor churches today.
Owing to the fact that the majority of
churches have out-of-town speakers,
the-sermon texts have been unable to
be changed, however, special prayers
and music have been arranged for.
The morning service at the First
Presbyterian church will be conduct-
ed at 1030 o'clock under the- direction
of the Rev. Robet 'Brown, of Bad Axe.
At the same hour intermediate and

mer school students and all other

ed to attend the community vesper

will meet at 12 o'clock noon and the

Even though Persident Coolidge may
have some new and different ideas as
to policy which he has kept discreet,
it is not to be expected that he will
disclose them at this time. His work
will consist of carrying out the pro-
gram of work and administration
which the late President began.
In regard to _a'ny cabinet changes,
Professor Reed expressed the pinson
that they are extremely unlikely at
this time,. "Mr. Coolidge' will simply
take the Presidential chair, leaving a
vacancy in the vice-presidency, and
things will carry on about the same,
until after the next presidential elec-
tion which will be in November, 19':4.
It is to be expected, however, that
President Coolidge's name will be
added to the already long list of pos-
sibilities for the Republican nomina-
tion next year.
"The earliest documents touchingI
mathematics which emanate from the
new world do not come, as some
might suspect from Harvard nor
from Boston," stated Prof. Louis C.

Gustav Streseman -
Rumors to the effect that a cabinet
shakeup is near in Germany are com-
ing out of Berlin. Gustav Streseman,
moderate industrial leader is being
groomed to succeed Chancellor Cuno.
He is a leader of the People's Party'

if he forms' a new cabinet.

1,116 Degrees Held By 948 Students
In Summer Session; 324 In 1916

One thuosand, one hundred and six-
teen degrees are held by 948 students
in the University this summer, ac-
cording to statistics given out by
Dean E. H. Kraus yesterday after-
noon. This is a notable increase .over
previous years. The figures for 1920
show a total number of 546 degeres
held by 455 students; in 1918 there
were 273 students holding 324 de-
grees- .
The A. B. degree claims the greatest
number every year out of the 56 dif-
ferent kinds of degrees held by stu-
dents. This summer, 675 students in-
cluding 441 in the Graduate ,school
and 64 in the College of Literature,
Science, and the Arts hold degrees.
Four Hold Ph.D. Degree
The B.S. degree comes next in fre-
'quency. One hundred and forty-eight
students in the University this'sum-

iner haye this degree. There are
three holding the degree of Associate
Arts; four with Ph.D. degrees; one
with PhM.; and one having an M.F.
diegree. The degree of Doctor of Pub-
ilc Health was held by one student
in '18 and '19, but no one having one
has enrolled since that time.
A student holding a B.C. degree
registered this year-the first one in
five years, and only three holding the
degree of Bachelor of Letters have en-
rolled in the University since 1918.
Records show that most of the stu-
dents with degrees enter the Grad-
uate school. They have 441 degrees
among their students this summer.
The total number in the literary col-
lege dropped considerably in 1921, due
to the fact that the School of Educa-
tion became an independent unit in

Deam Ou Harding
President Harding was one of the
foremost golf enthusiats in the coun-
try and to his enthusiasm for the
game the sport owes- much of its re-
cent popularity in the United States.
When on his trip to the South last
spring and on his journey across the
continent and to Alaska the nation's
chief executive was carerul to see
that his golf bags were included in
the luggage which accompanied the
presidential party.
In his enthusiasm for golf the pres-
ident was encouraged by his physi-
cians who realized the necessity for
exercise of the sort by the President
whose official life was such as to tax
his physical and nervous energies.
During his recent trip to Florida he
played quite frequently 36 holes in
an afternoon tramping at least 10
miles over the hot sandy courses and
showing no signs of fatigue.
Singing Frogs Go Up
Tokio, Aug. 4.-(By A.P.)-Prices

flies per day as nourishment.
