Hiram, '20, Amuses; Georgie,
fies Professor with Boldly

'17, De-

By L. S. T.
The engagement of Mips Daisy
Gardner, '20, to Dick, '19, was an-
nounced last night at a theater party
at the Whitney, given by the parents
and guardian of the young couple for
1,000 relatives and friends.
The news came as a "culmination,"
according to the society editor, of a
charming romance at Newport which
had its inception at the time of the
thrilling rescue of Miss Gardner by
her fiance when her horse became ex-
cited and ran away.
Dick is well known to Michigan stu-
dents as an aviator. The announce-
ment was a distinct surprise to those
present, inasmuch as several unfor-
tunate occurrences over which the
engaged couple had no control recent-
ly estranged them and brought about
Miss Gardner's withdrawal from the
Play to Capacity House"
This is just another way of saying
that the Michigan Union opera, "Fools'
Paradise," was given for the second
time last night and before an audi-
ence which "filled the house to the
doors." For two hours and 45 min-
utes the company of players held a
mirror before the assembled company
and made them laugh themselves into
fatigue at their own whimsicalities.
Prdduction Open to Criticism
The production may be criticized
Aecause it leaves little material for
the next dramatist who may wish to
satirize the life of Michigan's students.
It shows conclusively what has been
at the root of all our troubles here.
Rev. Martin Supergood, who until
last night was violently opposed to
any pastime more boisterous than
memorizing epitaphs, is completely
disillusioned. He went into the new
Michigan Union building, you know,
and thought it suggested something
unconventional. The clerk, his
nephew, told him to go across the
street to the Y. M. C. A. Of course he
meant the Museum, but he was only
working because his uncle had cast
him off and he hadn't oriented him-
self as yet.
Professor Bookery Also Reformed
Professor Bookery of the depart-
ment of ancient relics, and eminent
golf expert, also Joined the disillus-
ioned class. The scene in which
Georgie, '17, splits an infinitive right
to his face and tells him "the faculty
want to arbitrarily run the students"
was the tIrning point when he tried
to stop the dance at 9:30 o'clock. It
is to be hoped that the other members
of the ancient relics department will
take the hint and profit by the les-
son as Professor Bookery did.
The audience was amused and
pleased to see the rapid developemnt
of Hiram, '20, who came to the Uni-
versity last fall wholly unaware of
the potential forces which only needed
the co-operation of the local chapter
of the Kappa Climax fraternity to let
them blossom into flowers of young
manhood. It was also gratifying to
see the change that gradually came
over Mr. Gardner, father of the Miss
Gardner mentioned above, and brought
him to the realization that Dick and
Tubby were after all only live Ameri-
can college students.
Indian Chief Well Received
Chief Tontagini (pronounced "Ton-
ta-gee-nee.. with the accent on the
penult), is something new in Michi-
gan performances, but he is well worth
listening to. He has some valuable
advice and he knows how to deliver
it with a voice and manner that never
fail to impress.
The rest of the people who take
part in the performace are worth see-
ing and hearing, too. They are clever
and they know how to give the full
benefit of their ability. The or-
chestra. the songs, the lines, the

"The Monroe Doctrine is not the
doctrine of a single state; it is not
the special enunciation of Monroe;
but it is an All-American doctrine,.
having the support of all the nations
on the American continent," said Dr.
Alejandro Alvarez in his lecture on
"The Monroe Doctrine from a Latin-
American Point of View," delivered in
the Economics building yesterday aft-
Dr. Alvarez pointed out that in the
event of war with any European na-
tion the United States will have the
whole hearted support of all Latin-
American countries because of the
sympathy and support given to the
Latin-American countries by the Unit-
ed States during their struggles for
independence, and because of the ten-
dency toward pan-American which has
been the policy of all American coun-
tries. This tendency is due to the
growing intimate relations of all kinds
between the North American republic
and the South American states.
Sets Forth U. S. Policies
After an enumeration and explana-
tion of the doctrine as expressed by
President Monroe, in which was set
forth the principles of the independ-
ence of the new world, and the policy
of the United States in not allowing
meddling in American affairs by Euro-
pean countries, and the principle that
America would not interfere in Euro-
pean affairs, the speaker stated that
the United States has developed three
policies, which are:
1. The maintenance, application,
and development of the Monroe Doc-
trine, which is the doctrine of all
the states of the new world.
2. The development of a personal
political hegemony.
3. The policy of a personal politic-
al imperialism.
Seeks Peaceful Expansion
Dr. Alvarez gave examples to show

that these policies have been followed
by the United States, and stated that
the attempt to further commercial and
economic relations with her Latin-Am-
erican neighbors shows that wealth
and power can be obtained through
the influence of peaceful economic de-
velopment, instead of the armed op-
pression of weaker states, as has been
the case in Europe.
In concluding, Senor Alvarez declar-;
ed, "The Monroe Doctrine expresses
principles of American public inter-
nation law, because its principles are
supported by all the states of the new
world, and respected by all states of;
the old."

AI0R FLET 5000
Manufacturers Co-operate With Na-
tion in Construction of
Aerial Squadron to Be Used as Coast
Guard Against Attack of
Enemy Flyers
Washington, March 22.-A mam-
moth fleet of 5,000 standardized types
of air craft toaugmentthe present
aerial forces of the United States is
planned by the national advisory com-
mittee of aeronautics, it was stated
The committee, army and navy of-
ficers, and some 30 manufacturers of
air craft met here today to decide
upon the quickest possible way to turn
out this large air fleet in case of war.
The manufacturers signified their
willingness to co-operate with the
government in the present emergency,
and a committee consisting of three
manufacturers and four members of
the advisory committee was named to
craft plans for the most modern type
of aeroplanes.
The work will be distributed among
the manufacturers of the country in
a manner which the committee will
determine most advantageous. The
proposition calls for the construction
of 5,000 powerful air fighters which
will mean an addition of 1,000 aviators
to the present air force of the coun-
try. For every aviator there is kept
in reserve three aeroplanes, and the
board figures that one air ship will
be destroyed in training an aviator.
This big fleet will be used to guard
the coast against attack from enemy
flyers, and may also, in the event of
hostilities, participate in active war-
fare, according to a member of the
Fall Received When Alighting From
Interurban Car Wednesday
Proves Fatal
Seymour Long, '20, died at 3:20
o'clock yesterday afternoon at the Un-
iversity hospital from a fall he receiv-
ed while alighting from an interurban
car at the corner of Packard and State
streets at 1030 o'clock last Wednes-
day night. His father, a farmer just
outside of Urbana, Ohio, and his moth-
er were notified of his death last night
and will arrive today to take care of
the remains.
Long was returning from Detroit
last Wednesday and according to by-
standers did not attempt to g'et off
from the car until it had started up
at the corner of Packard and State
streets. He fell on the back of his
head and was knocked unconscious.
Police Officer Sodt took him to the
University hospital but he never re-
gained consciousness.
Six doctors were put on the cass.
An X-ray of his head was taken but it
showed no signs of any injury aid
one of the doctors said last night
that Long showed no symptoms of be-
ing hurt until within a few minutes of
his death. The city coronor will hold
an autopsy today to find out the exact
cause of his death.

Mayor Ernest Wurster issued a
proclamation yesterday to the effect
that "Baby Week,'- will be observed
in this city the week of April 23. Ann
Arbor will follow the lead of other
cities in the general campaign to
provide information which is intend-
ed to aid in the betterment of con-
ditions under which children are born
and live.
His proclamation is in line with the
plan of members of the Ann Arbor
branch of the Collegiate Alumnae as-
sociation, and the hospital circle of
King's Daughters to conduct such a
campaign as outlined above.
During the same week a campaign
against tuberculosis will be conducted
over the country. The city board of
health, city officials, churches, organ-
izations of many kinds, merchants,
physicians and all others are urgently
asked to give their co-operation in
the "Baby Week" plan.

British Soldiers
Still Advance
Horror of German Retreat Grows
Constantly Under Pressure of
By William Phillips Simms
(United Press Staff Correspondent.)
(With the British Armies Afield.)
London, Marci 22.-The British are
within five miles of St. Quentin and
are still pressing on toward Nord Can-
al, which the enemy is utilizing for
purposes of defense.
The horror of the German retreat
grew constantly today when it be
came known that the Teutons, after
Roy le Petit, collected about 200
old people and children in addition
to the usual population of the place,
and then deliberately shelled the vil-
lage. A number of these defenseless
and innocent people were killed.
As the Germans fall back under the
relentless Anglo-French pressure the
ugliest side of the war is uncovered.
Evidences of vandalism abound every-
where. Most tragic . of all are the
human wrecks left behind. They stare
at the incoming British and French
troops with eyes made mild by suffer-
ing. The faces of babies and the
younger children are especially pitiful.
No one had tasted meat for six months
or more.
Wherever we went we heard praise
of the American relief commission,
whose efforts reached to thve foremost
villages behind the German lines.
However. the people declared that the
Germans profited through these sup-





Representatives of numerous mili-
tary and civil organizations will at-
tend the naval ball to be held to-
night at the Armory. The governor
will be officially represented by mem-
bers of his staff. The medical reserve
corps, the First and Second battalions
of Michigan naval militia, and Com-
pany I of Ann Arbor will be repre-
sented by their respective officers.
About 12 other army and navy officers
will attend.
Among the faculty patrons are:
President Harry B. Hutchins, Regent
Junius E. Beal, Secretary Shirley W.
Smith, Registrar Arthur G. Hall,
Prof. Herbert C. Sadler, Prof. Lewis
M. Gram, Dr. Clyde B. Stouffer, Prof.
Ralph W. Aigler, Mr. Wilfred B.
Shaw, and Mr. Wilfred Wilson.
This is the first formal ball of the
naval militia, and yet it will in all
probability be the last, according to
Kenneth W. Heinrich, '17E. Heinrich
expressed himself as being positive
that the naval militia will be in serv-
ice before April 1.
The grand march, led by Kenneth
W. Heinrich, '17, and Lois E. Donald-
son, '18, will begin at 9:30 o'clock. A
reception will be held from 9 to 9:30
o'clock. The dance will end at 2
o'clock with the sounding of taps by
the field music corps.
Navy Needs College Men Says Officer
Princeton, N. J., March 22.-Lacking
from 18,000 to 50,000 men and 2,000
officers, the navy is in pressing need
of college bred men to man the sub-
marine patrol boats which will be used
in case of war, according to the asser-
tion of Lieut.-Commanddr Marion Ep-
pley of the United States navy, in an
address to the Princeton branch of
the- United States naval coast reserve.
The prime requisite of the individual
in this service is brains and the abil-
ity to use them, he said, and for this
reason the college man is most desir-

jects of educational interest.
German Measles Keeps Students In
Lawrence A. Ransford, '19, 521
Walnut street, and Alfred B. Ware-
ham, '20, 911 Monroe street, are quar-
antined in their rooms with German

The Student council will petition
the Senate council for permission to
hold a Mothers' and Fathers' day in
co-operation with the University au-
thorities at some date considered ad-
visable by the two organizations. It
was decided that Festival week would
not be a good date for the event, be-
cause tickets for the festival would not
be available and because the Univer-
sity would not be running under -nor-
mal conditions at that time.
Chairmen of the morial fund com-
mittee of the senior classes, with the
exceptions of the law and dent repre-
sentatives, met last Sunday at the re-
quest of the Student council and voted
in favor of the plan of a combined
memorial fund. The chairmen will
take the matter up with their com-
mittees and meet a week from Sun-
day to report upon the decisions
It was decided by the council that
the cost of a new tug-of-war rope to
take the place of the old one, which
was destroyed last year, should be
apportioned among the entire student
body. Bills varying in amount in pro-
portion to the size of the classes will
be sent to the class treasurers. These
must be met promptly, because the
rope will not be purchased until the
money has been secured. "
W. H. Hoga i, '17, and W. B. Steele,
'17D, were appointed as a committee to
consult with various campus organ-
izations in order to determine a suit-
able date for all-campus election day.
In order to get a greater number of
students to vote, it is probable that
the election will be held in the center
of the campus. If possible the coun-
cil will secure a large tent under
which the ballots will be cast.
The second Sunday after spring va-
cation was chosen as Cane day for
the seniors. This will be the official
opening day for the carrying of canes.
H. A. Taylor, '17E, and H. S. Hatch,
'18, were appointed to consult the
editor of the Michigan handbook on
the possibility of incorporating a stu-
dent code of campus traditions and
rules for athletics in that publication
in the futui'e.

Springfield, Ill., March 22.-Adjut-
ant-General Dickson received orders
from General Barry of the central mil-
itary department, to rush to Chicago
all data he can collect within the
next few lours on the facilities for

"You are going to be missionaries
for Michigan, in that you are going to
dispel many of the false ideas of col-
lege men next summer in your work,"
said the Rev. Mr. George Knepper at

Lane hall last evening -to the Michi-
gan men who are going to sell the
People's Home Library as summer
work. -
Rev. Knepper also pointed out how
these men besides making money,
were going to bring students to Mich-
igan by exciting admiration among
the younger gceneration. "Another
thing you fellows and others who will
work this summer will get, is ability
to meet men and to adapt yourself to

Senate and house Members Pledge
President Support; Fili-
busters Join
Washington, March 22.-Unof-
lihcia reports circulated here as-
sert that ihe United States is still
on the verge of war with Ger-
many. Rumors from department
officals state that Germany will
declare war before the United
Stales. Such a move, it is held,
will be to the advantage of the
Germans, giving them ample time
to prepare ai U-boat campaign be-
fore congress can act to uphold
President Wilson.
By J. P. Yoder
(United Press Staff Correspondent.)
Washington, March 22.-The state
department today squelched all dug
gestions for neutral mediation be-
tween the United States and Germany.
This will continue to be the adminis-
tration's attitude until the slate be-
tween Germany and America is clean.
No Parley Considered
Suggestions that a neutral move to-
ward mediation was proceedingbrought
from the department the definite
knowledge that this government is not
now disposed to parley. Administra-
tion officials, including Secretary of
State Lansing, were frankly displeased
at the mediation talk, branding it as
pro-German and anti-American.
The state department said officially
it had not received a formal meiation
offer aside from the several Swiss of-
fers made at the time of the break
with Germany to do anything that
could be done. Just who was inspir-
ing the mediat.ion talk was unknown,
but there was a suspicion that it might
he fostered by Swiss Minister Ritter.
Wilson Prepares Message
President Wilson today began tenta-
tive work on his message to the war
congress of April 2. Simultaneously
senators and representatives of all
faiths were wiring in pledges of sup-
port to the White House. Among
those who are responding to the de-
numds for aggressive action against
Germany are members of the little
group of willful 12 charged by Presi-
dent Wilson with placing the United
States in a contemptible light before
the world as a result of filibustering
tactics in the last congress.
"Frogs in the Cream" Presents in
humorous Style a Sound,
Snappy Moral
With the advent of spring comes a
greater appreciation of the poet's art,
and the March number of the Inlander,
which will appear on the campus at
noon Tuesday, instead of today as was
formerly announced, will delight its
readers by several charming pieces
of poesy.
"March" is the title of a contribt-'
tion, by Irene McFadden, '12;
"Spring," by Marjorie McKeown, '17;
"A Tropical Night," by Mary Esther
Oakes, '20; "Craven," by Lester E.
Waterbury; "Jungfrau," by H. Bird,
grad., and a bit of vers libre by an
anonymous author 6ntitled "Name-

less" will be found in the issue.
That you can't teach an old dog
new tricks is the theme around which
the story of Georgia Jackson is built.
"New Tricks" develops the pictur-
esque character of an old-fashioned
mill owner in pleasing fashion. "The
Frogs in the Cream" is a fable by
H. B. Teegarden, '17, and contains a
sound moral presented in humorous
[style. Several articles and. a num-
