Orr of Chicago that an "invisible and unre strained government" Is In force at Ann Arbor and that there have been many "brutal and authorized hazlngs which he proposes to make public soon." Mr. Orr's son, Louis T. Jr seven teen years old, was hazed twice by University of Michigan students be cause he was obstreperous and "fresh" and refused to conform to traditions 1 of the university take mould in the harmonious spirit. "what rolls me most," Dr. Bur ton said, "is comparing these virile young bucks with your Chicago crooks. Why, they are the finest boys in the world. We adult they make mistakes. They made a mistake In beating young Orr, but that's no excuse for calling them thugs and potential murderers. We have been consistently against vi olence and we will act when there Is any evidence. "The spring Bap Is running in Ann Arbor. Tlie students are lured far from studies. Dances, tugs of war, rushes fill the waning hours of the school year. It Is a world remote, a world with its own traditions, heroes, standards. When Louis Orr defied his class and refused to bow to the mob spirit he was pun ished. How to control that mob spirit Is the problem of the university." la Legion and Auxiliary Endeavoring to Supply News to Die- abled Men in Hospitals.
