It is a pleasure to record the elec-
tion of so able a man as "Mort" Sn-
ter to the football captaincy. First of
all, he is eminently the man for the
place, fitted by the prestige his playing
has won for him, both here and else-
where, by his popularity with the
team and the whole University and
by his personal characteristics. The,
too, Michigan can point to him withs
especial pride as a product distinctly
her own, a product of our new football
regime. Here he played his first foot-
ball and here he has steadily devel-
oped into one of the best players the
game has ever lad. The Daily cou-
gratulates Captain Senter on his elec-
tion and feels that the University is
still more to be congratulated that scts
a man was available for he place.

"The faculty has adopted the fol-

Christmas and Easter recesses, which
apply to all members of the College
of Letters and Science, the College of
Engineering, the School of Pharmacy,
and to other students attending reci-
tations i these colleges. The object
of the regulations is to secure the at-
tendance of students to the close of

it is necessary for students to be in T
ly through the year. It would plainly
be a grave injury to the work of the
semester if a considerable number of
students should extend their vacation
at Christmas and Easter by taking
two or three days at the beginning
and perhaps as many at the close of
the recess. The faculty is confident
that the students will see that it is
necessary for all students to be pres-
ent at all -the university exercises, if
the work of the year is to be carried
on with full success;
"'In this connection it will also be
remembered that the special rates
given for the Chrisitmas holidays by

"'1. No instructor is authorized to
excuse absences from those recitations
which immediately precede or follow
the Christmas or Easter recesses. All
excuses for absences at these times
most be presented to the dean of the
College of Letters and Science.
"'No application for excuse to leave
town before the recesses will be
granted, except those based upon the
impossibility of reaching home before
Christmas or Good Friday. Excuses
for absence at the close of the re-
cesses must be based on actual im-
possility of reaching home before
Christmas or Good Friday. Excuses
for absence at the close of the re
ccsses must be based on actual im-
possibility of return.
"'2. Any student who is absent
without excuse from recitations tin-
mediately preceding or following the
Christmas or Easter recesses will be
!txcluded from the siemester exam-
ination in those studies from which he
was absent, and will be required to
take the examination at the close of
the following semester.
