Sewing Kits, Bandages, and Money
Ready for Use in Hoar
of Need
In case of war with Mexico, the
Daughters of the American Revolu-
tion stand ready to serve their coun-
try. They are prepared to send money,
supplies, nurses, to assist the families
of the soldiers, and in every way to
do all that can be done to alleviate
the suffering which must necessarily
come with war.
On June 27, Mrs. W. H. Wait, of this
pity, state regent of the D. A. R.,
isued an appeal to the various Mich-
igand chapters, immediately to prepare
themselves to send supplies of all
kinds to the front The responses
were as hearty as they were prompt.
Mrs. Wait received communications
from all parts, saying that the
"Daughters" had already begun to
prepare sewing kits, were making
bandages, and were ready at any time
to do all that might be asked of them.
Within two weeks after the appeal was
issued, Mrs. Wait was able to notify
the National Chairman that "Michigan
stands ready."
During the Spanish-American war,
the D. A. It. was ready from the start
to help in what relief wo'rk could be
done. They sent in money $918, be-,
sides the clothes-2,500 garments-
surgical supplies, and the payments
for 22 nurses. One of the nurses
came from Ann Arbor. Up to October,
1915, the National Society had records
of $16,000 given by them for relief
On.April 9 of this year, the national
organization mothered the Belgian
flag, 'on King Albert's birthday. As a
result of that movement, Michigan was
able to report $1,600 for Belgian relief.

consider the advisability of this move
and to receive suggestions for the fu-
ture administration of the organiza-
tion, a meeting will be held in The
Wol erine office Monday night at 7:00
oclock. League officials, the man-
agers of the teams, the captain of the
all-campus team, and all others inter-
ested are expected to attend.
Boilermakers Lose Out by One Run
Margin in Short Game;
Turner Stars
In a three-inning batfest, featured
-by errors, wild base running and poor
umpiring, the lits nosed out the engi-
neers by a 5 to 4 score Thursday after-
noon on South Ferry field.
At the time the game was set for
there were not enough men for two
teams so the lits added to their con-
tingent a youthful engineer from the,
far east who during the course of the
game proved that the boilermakers
had been wrong in asking for waivers.
Hits, stolen bases and putouts were
products of his agility and his playing
was a big factor in the victory.
Turner hurled a good game for the
engineers, striking out three men in
the first inning, but his support was
poor and the lits turned the circuit for

the Otter Lake Agricultural School, as
described by Mr. J. A. Doelle, Super-
intendent of Schools, Houghton, Mich.,
who spoke Thursday afternoon in the
Natural Science building.
The Otter Lake agricultural school
is a consolidated school in the town-
ship of Portage located on a 40-acre
farm, which is run throughout the
"The principal aim of the school is
to educate the people and improve
agricultural methods," said Mr. Doelle.,
"We see a wave of enthusiasm among
the people and although we do not
take all the credit, the school must
have had its effect." To supplement
the old Finnish methods followed by
the parents, the children are taught
scientific agriculture with practical ex-
perience in the laboratory and in the
spring and fall work of the farm. The
parents are directly interested by ex-
hibits and parents' meetings.

to think that she had done something,
after all. The American Revolution
might well be proud to claim such wo-

Take on Normals in Second Clash of

on 1:10 Car
The all-campus team and the Ypsi
Normal aggregation will hook up this
afternoon at 2:30 oclock, in the sec-

be the last chance for the Norshalites
to even up the season's score and they
will be out with blood in their eyes.

Local and Ypsl Bands Head March to
Hill Auditorium, Where Giant
Emblem is Dedicated
Beginning wtih the inspiring music
of the bands of Ann Arbor and Ypsi-
lanti which marched up the street to
the doors of Hill auditorium at 8:00
o'clock, a varied and highly interesting
program was given last night in which
a large American flag was presented
to Company I, of the Thirty-first regi-
ment, on the platform of the audi-
torium. Perfect in detail, the program,
successfully compiled and executed by
the chairman of the committee, Charles
Oldrin, held the attention of a large
and patriotic Ann Arbor audience
from the "assembly" bugle call blown
by the grey headed veteran, W. A.
Jackson, to the singing of "America"
by the entire audience.
Then came the most inspiring event
of the evening in which little Miss
Marion Wurster, during the singing of
"The Star Spangled Banner" by Miss
Frances Caspari and the audience,
pulled a rope which released the im-
mense folds of the flag attached to the
ceiling, swinging its majestic stripes
out over the very heads of the audi-
ence in a blaze of magnificent color.
Its breadth almost obscured the end
of the hall and the great organ.
This was followed by the "Pledge of
Allegiance" by the audience. Then
followed a reading by Prof. T. C. True-
Blood, "The American Flag." During
the singing of "The Red, White and
Blue," an effective tableaux was shown
of the "Spirit of '76," while the "God-
dess of Liberty" distributed flowers to
the G. A. R. veterans. The tribute to
the flag was given by the Hon. George
R. Lusk in an effective manner. The
presentation and acceptance of the
flag were effected by ex-Capt Sid Mil-
lard and"Mayor Wurster. Then fol-
lowed a story of the Civil war, "De-
fending the Flag," by Robert Campbell.
After the singing of "America," the
G. A. R. representatives carried the
flag to its future place on Main street,
during a torchlight procession.
The Knuth family autoed out into
the country to get some butter and
eggs yesterday afternoon.
The entire family of six was crushed
to death under the wheels of the Ann
Arbor Express on the interurban line
late yesterday afternoon, when Mr.
and Mrs. Fred W. Knuth, of Detroit,
and their daughter Christina, 10 years
old, their son August Knuth, 23, and
his wife, 23. The sixth victim was
an unidentified chauffeur. The east
bound car caught them squarely as
they backed out from a driveway of
the farmyard.
According to a man in the Ann Ar-
bor garage who arrived on the scene
of the tragedy ten minutes after the
tragedy, there was not a piece of the
automobile left that was a foot long,
because the machine was rolled un-
der the car for 200 yards. The people
were completely pulverized, and the
wreck is acclaimed as the most ghast-
ly. The auto was a Hupmobile

Another chapter was added to the
tangled affairs of the Michigan Port-
land Cement company of Four Mile
lake when a bill of complaint was
filed this morning by Homer C. and
his wife May Millen asking for a de-
cree for $282,300 for what they allege
is the unpaid value of the company's
stock which N. S. Potter, of Jackson,
is alleged to have subscribed for and
never paid.
