WELCOME THE TEAM
Michigan's Varsity "Champions of the West," returns from Urbana
this evening on the 9:43 Michigtn Central train. Never since the
days before the wearers of the Maize and Blue left the Conference,
has a team so victorious, so gloriously unbeaten, returned to Ann
Arbor to receive the tribute which is theirs by right of conquest.
It is the duty of all who claim to be true Michigan men to wel-
come the champions home. A crowd such as has not gathered since
the return from Harvard in 1914, should be at the old stone station
when the band strikes up "The Victors" as the train bearing the vic-
torious team comes to a stop. It is for the University to let the men
who have fought so hard to bring the honors bome know that it ap-
preciates what the team has done.
The gathering in 1914 was to greet a team defeated and downcast.
to show the wearers of the "M" that the Michigan spirit reigned
supreme whether victorious or conquered. Tonight the return is one

of rejoicing and appreciation, not as necessary as the other, but nev-
ertheless deserving the support of every man and woman on the cam-

Paris, May 28,-The situation tonight is more re-assuring. The lat-

(By The Associated Press)
The Great German military machine
is in full motion along the 20-mile
front in the Aisne river sector, be-
tween Vailly and Barry-au-Brac, and
greatly outnumbers the British and
French who, everywhere, are giving
ground.
Teutons Capture Many. Towns
According to the German official
communication, numerous towns and
villages in the fighting zone have been
taken by the enemy and 15,000 Allied
troops have been made prisoner.
At last accounts,.the Germans were
endeavoring to press back the'defend-
ers upon the Vesle river, which runs
parallel to the Aisne, and at several
points, had reached points dominating
the Vesle valley. The offensive is be-
ing carried out with the greatest rap-
idity, for the German high command
is well aware of the fact that Gen-
eral Foch's reserves have been re-
ported as coming up rapidly to re-en-
force the hard pressed British and
French.
