MICHIGAMUA TO GO
ON WARPATH TODAY
FOR 10 PALEFACES
When from out the paleface wigwam
From behind the staring moon-face
Comes the slow and solemn six strokes
Telling that the Evening Spirit
Wanders over woods and meadows
Lights the campfires of the heavens.
Then the Michigamua warriors
In their feathers and their war paint
Soon will gather round the oak tree
Round the oak tree called the Tappan
There to greet the trembling paleface.
Ten in number wait the bidding
Of the loud, rejoicing redskins:
For before they take the long trail
To the home of Michigamua
Many trials and many tortures
First must show their strength and
Ere the red man bids them welcome
Ere he calls each paleface "Indian""
Ere the peace-pipe smoke together.

Speaks at Conference
Mr. Hoover spoke at a conference
of 160 representative American
grain dealers and officials of the food
administration's grain division.
Taking up the question of why the
Allies cannot use more corn and leave
the wheat for Americans Mr. Hoover
said that corn was short lived and
difficult to ship and that the Allies
are ignorant of art of making corn-
"At the present moment our crop
'prospects look anything from 800,-

With this prospect we now have
ground for hopes of plenty for our-
selves and our Allies."

SALOONS GO QUIETLY
AS CLOCKS TOLL TEN
Ann Arbor's "wet" era came to a
close at 10 o'clock last night, with-
out the predicted demonstrations of
wildness, and without any arrests by
the local police. In fact, the police
report that things were not any more
violent than on other nights, largely
because there were many people who
"laid in a supply" before hand.
There were, however, numerous
people who made the last round of the
saloons that remained open, and
drank for the last time toasts to the
passing booze. A spirit of "Have one
on me" prevailed, and bartenders lost
no time in dispensing with the supply
on hand. As a result very few places
were able to continue the sale of liquor
until night, but those which did found
no difficulty in disposing of the small
stock that remained.
Many of the saloons will continue
in business as lunch rooms, and soft
drink parlors. One is to be trans-
formed into a pool room, but the ma-
jority of them are serving as soft
drink parlors because it is expected
that the next legislature will pass an
amendment to the "bone dry" law
which will allow beer and wine to be
Violations against the "bone dry"'
law, although not looked for by the
local authorities, will meet with the
full force of the law, according to
Thomas O'Brien, chief of police. He
said that every man will be expected
to enforce the law rigidly. The local
authorities have been assured of the
fullest co-operation of the state, in
order that they may be able to cope
with any timuation that may arise.
Detroit, April 30.--Michigan joined

At that hour the constitutional amend-
