Washington, May 9.- With the de-
IM partment of justice investigating air-
craft production, and another inquiry
by the senate military committee
about to be made, Secretary Baker

AT

announced tonight that he was with-
holding further action. Applications
from three signal corps officers have
been received for examination by a
military corps for their connection
with the aviation program.
Army officers generally have urged
strongly that a military court be
formed to deal with the charges and
intimations of disloyalty and dis-
honesty and the charges of incom-
petence. They draw a sharp distinc-
tion between this phase of the agita-
tion in the senate and the aircraft

TWO-THIRDS MAJORITY LACKS
TWO SUPPORTERS IN
CANVASS VOTE
Washington, May 9.-Senate action
on the house resolution, proposing to
the states an equal suffrage amend-
ment to the federal constitution, has
been postponed indefinitely. A can-
vass of the members showed that the
supporters of the resolution were two
less than the,two-thirds majority vote
necessary for its adoption.
This announcement was made by
Senator Jones, of New Mexico, chair-
man of the senate women's suffrage
committee, after he had stated in the
senate that the resolution would not
be called up tomorrow, as it had been
indefinitely laid aside.

At a meeting of the student council
last night, it was decided to hold the
annual spring games Friday and Sat-
urday, May 17 and 18. The tug of war
will take place at 4 o'clock Friday
afternoon on the Huron river, and will
have the same features as In former
years. The cane spree and obstacle
relay races will be held Saturday
morning on Ferry Field.
Substitute for Pushball.
Instead of the pushball, the coun-
cil has decided upon a rope contest,
which has been used with great suc-
cess at the Universities of Illinois and
Kentucky. Although details of the
new substitute game are not know, it
is thought that it will consist of a
stationary rope, with a number of
men on both sides, somewhat similar
to the tug of war. The object of the
game will be to get the men off the
rope, the side having the greatest
number left winning.
Meeting to Explain Games
Both classes will have "pep" meet-
ings, in charge of J. I. McClintock, '19,
who will explain the games. The
freshmen will meet at 7 o'clock Wed-
nesday night in Physics lecture room,
and will be addressed by Robert T.
McDonald, managing editor of The
Daily. Sophomores will meet Thurs-
day night in the same room. Besides
learning the rules of the contest, cap-
tains of the various games will be
elected, and also the men to take part
in the cane spree.
Weighing in for the tugs of
war will be held between 3:
and 4 o'clock Tuesday, Wed-
nesday, Thursday, and Friday after-
noons in Waterman gymnasium. There
will be three tugs of war, as usual,
the light, middle, and heavy weight,
and all men are eligible. Weighing
in should be done as soon as possible,
as the first to come will be selected.
Committee for Games
The committee for this year's class
games consits of J. I. McClintock, '19,
chairman, M. A. MacKenzie, '18E, J.
J. Kucera, '18A, R. C. Patterson, '18,
and H. B. McWilliams, '18P.
The council also selected May 31 as
cap night. The caps and toques will
not be burned, but will be saved, as
last year. However, the council re-
quests that students should see that
they are not torn or mutilated, as
they can not be used in that condi-
tion.
Social Workers Address Women
Miss Luella Bolton, social secre-
tary of the Parke Davis Co., of De-
troit, and Miss Melita Hutzel, of the
Girl's Protective league of that city,
spoke at Newberry residence yester-
day afternoon on the general topic
of welfare work among women factory
workers. The speakers were both
women of large experience along lines
of social work, and a large number
of University girls enjoyed the talks.

A well balanced cast gave the Mas-
ques production of Pinero's "The
Amazons" a meritorius presentation
last night in Sarah Caswell Angell
hall.
The play concerns itself with the
adventures of three girls who have
been raised as boys by their eccen-
tric mother. They are forbidden thE
company of young men, but through
their ingenuity succeed in cultivating
the attentions of suitors. Of course

ANTI-TUBERCULOSIS SOCIETY
CAMPAIGNS FOR NEW MEMBERS
Membership in the Michigan Anti-
tuberculosis association will be in-
creased by five hundred during May, if
present plans are carried out. Each
county is expected to secure a certain
number of new members during the
month. The number is based on the
population of the county and varies
from one in the smaller counties to
90 in Wayne county. Seven have been
assigned for Washtenaw county.
"Owing to the various money rais-
ing campaigns now being carried out,
we would not try to increase our mem-
bership at present," said Mr. W. L.
Cosper, executive secretary of the as-
sociation, "if we did not believe it is
necessary to create more widespread'
interest in recent developments of the
work of the association; such as the
assistance being rendered the tuber-
cular soldiers who are discharged
from the army."

end after the usual complications, but
there are some good opportunities for
comedy, which were accepted very c
well by members of the cast.
All the parts were well taken, and
Prof. Raleigh Nelson is to be com-
mended for the smoothness of the
production and the absence of any t
serious hitches. A second perfor-
mance of the play will be given this
evening.
School Inspector Not Be-appointed
Dr. Anna Dieterle failed to be re-
appointed inspector for the public
schools for the ensuing year at the,
annual meeting .of the school board
held Wednesday night.
Last winter Dr. Dieterle was asked
to meet the school Iboard and state
her ideas regarding the present world
war. She appeared with her attorney,
but, it is said, failed to give satis-
factory replies to the vital questions
of the day.
