SENATE f IXES PENALTY
FOR ISLOYALTY ACTS
ADOPTS REPORT ON SEDITION
BILL BT VOTE
OF 48 TO 26
Washington, May 4.-Protractive
conversation in the senate over the
sedition bill to severely penalize dis-
loyal acts and utterances, and inter-
ferences with Liberty Loan sales and
the army draft, ended late today in
the adoption of the conference report
on the measure by a vote of 48 to 26.
The house is expected to agree to the
report next year.
The bill was initiated a year ago
and provided maximum penalities of
20 years imprisonment and a $10,000
fine or both for a wide variety of
disloyal acts.
PRESIDENT APPROVES BAKER'S
STAND ON DEATH PENALTIES'
Washington, May 4.-President Wil-
son's action in pardoning the two
soldiers of the American Expedition-
ary force, who had been condemned
to death by a military court martial
in France for sleeping while on sen-
try duty, and commuting to nominal
prison terms the death sentences im-
posed on two other for disobeying or-
ders, was vied by army officials as an
approval by the president of Secretary
,Baker's stand against the imposition
of the death penalty, except in special
cases.
Washtenaw County to Furnish Selects
Washtenaw county's quota of the 10,
149 Michigan men to be called into
service is estimated at 128. The local
board has not yet received any ord-
ers regarding the call, but advices are
expected soon from the adjutant gen-
eral of the state.
The call for skilled men will re-
quire about 70 more men from the
county.
Confiscate Cookies Containing Glass
Detroit, May 4.-Alleged consign-
ment of cookies containing sharp
pieces of glass have been confseated
by detectives working at an east side

EXPECT SUM WILL INCREASE
TO NEARLY $4,000,000,000
Third Loan More Than $12,000,000
Above Either First or Second
Liberty Loans
Washington, May 4.-For the third
time within a year the American peo-
ple have heavily oversubscribed a war
credit.
As the third Liberty Loan was clos-'
ing tonight the treasury announced
the campaign has been "an overwhelm-
ing success." Although $3,000,000,000
was the formal goal of the campaign,
official reports, including only a small
proportion of day's avalanche of
pledges, showed the total as $3,203,-
655,400 and there were indications
that the aggregate would be increased
to nearly $4,000,000,000 next week,
when banks have time to tabulate the
multitude of last minute applications.
The exact'result of the campaign
probably will not be known until late
in the week.
Official estimates place the number
of subscribers at between 12,000,-
000 and 15,000,000 far above those of
either the first or second Liberty
Loans.
All 12 federal reserve districts over-
subscribed, and the majority of the
states made the same record.

EXPECTED TEUTON RAID NEAR

Sammies' Artillery Completely Levels
German Positions; Blow Up
Enemy Works
(By Associated Press)
With the American army in France,
May 4.-American troops in the Lor-
raine sector yesterday morning carried
out a raid on the German lines south
of Halloville on a 600- yard front.
After an intense but brief artillery
preparation, the infantry, accompanied
by pioneers, went over the top and
penetrated the German positions to the
third line. They found not a single
German.
The attack was on a German salient.
The artillery completely leveled the
Germans' positions and the pioneers
finished the job by blowing up all the
enemy works, thus eliminating the
salient.
A German raid, which was expect-
ed would be carried out on the sec-
tor south of Verdun, failed to mater-
ialize."
"AMAZONS" TICKET
COMMITTEE NAMED
The ticket committee for "The Ama-
zons,'. the play to be presented on
Thursday and Friday night in Sarah
Caswell Angell hall, has been appoin-
ted by Masques. Its members are to
conduct a campaign in the league
houses, fraternity and sorority houses,
and the dormitories. Tickets for the
public will b'e available at Wahr's,
Sheehan's, the Busy Bee, and at the
Student's Supply store on South Uni-
versity avenue. In addition, they will
be sold on Wednesday, Thursday, and
Friday, in University hall and the
Library.
The Amazons embodies Pinero's
light, whimsical treatment of the
"mannish woman" idea, and is one of
his most brilliant productions. The
cast, which contains some of the best
talent on the campus, has been pre-
paring for several weeks under the
direction of Professor J. Raleigh Nel-
son. The play will be produced under
the auspices of the Women's league.
WILL NOT CALL '18 SANITARY
ENGINE RS BEFORE GRADUATION
Senior sanitary engineers will not
be called into service until the end
of the college term, according to a
message received from the war de-
partment yesterday by Prof. A. J.
Decker, of the engineering college.
"Although the officials may change
their minds, it was agreed that the
best plan for the present was to allow
the men to finish their courses," said
Professor Decker last night.

TO RE-TRY EVADER
SENTENCED TO DIE
Camp Custer, May 4.-Camp Custer
has the rather doubtful honor of hav-
ing sentenced the first man in
the national army camp to "death by
shooting."
But the prisoner, Theodore Kal-
las, of Detroit, will not be shot
for some time, thanks to a
technicality of the law. His com-
manding officer, Captain Lamar, who
signed the charges, also sat on
the court martial commission, so the
entire proceedings are void. Kallas
will be retried.
He was a draft evader and even
after he had been apprehended and
brought to Camp Custer, he refused
to serve.
FENCING ACT FEATUES
FORUEIGNER S OIREE
STUDENTS FROM OTHER LANDS
GIVE VARIED PRO-

Sashida, '20, was the feature of the
entertainment given last night in Lane
hall by the foreign students, under the
auspices of the Weselyan guild in
connection with the Cosmopolitan
club. The contest was waged with
the regular bamboo swords and was
won by Sashida. The visors, body
protectprs, and gauntlets which the
men wore, as well as the swords, were
brought from Japan.,

consisted of piano, vocal, and mandolin
solos by several of the foreign stu-
dents.
J. C. Klaphaak, School of
students. J. C. Klaphaak, School of
Music, and Morikio Uychara, School
of Music, rendered well received piano
selections. A. M. Elkind, '19E, gave
a mandolin solo and was twice en-
cored by the audience.
Vocal Selections
The vocal selections consisted of a
Chinese children's song by Gladys F.
Ding, grad., an Italian love song by
Esther Cristinelli, School of Music, and
song in English by the wife of G. E.
Dyason, '21,D.
Chinese Act
One of the novel features was "the
women of new and old China" as pre-
sented by four Chinese women stu-
dents. They depicted the woman of
old China in the subservience of home
life and the modern Chinese woman
in cap and gown.
Filipino Legend
Guillermo Vill Anueva, grad., read
the-old Filipino legend which account-
ed for the creation of the world. He
said that it had been handed down
from father to son since. long before
the Spaniards first came to the islands
in 1529. The comedy of the evening
was furnished by F. C. Lin, '18, in his
burlesque of Douglas Fairbanks sell-
in Liberty bonds.
After the conclusion of the pro-
gram G. H. King, grad, president of
the club announced that an entertain-
