The large audience at University
hall last night gave strong emiphasis
to the need of a larger auditorium for1
the concerts in the Choral Union
series. It is obvious that standing
roOm will be at a premium at each of
the May Festival concerts and there is
no danger that the attendance at nfu-
ture concerts of this series will fall Oel.
but there is every indication that they
will attract greltier audiences in suc-
ceedsing years. Certainly, Midhigan
has alumni who can come to the aid
of the University Musical Society, for
in this case the fear that a gift will
not be. managed properly because the
University ,is a state institution will
not hold good.
The attention of the Athletic Board
is called to the following from .the last
number of the Northwestern:
"The latter part of this month there
will be a meeting in Chicago of rep-
resentatives from the leading univer-
sities of the West, including Mimne-
sota, Wisconsin, Iowa,. Illinois, Miich-
igan, Chicago and Northwestern, in
the interests of .western intercollegiate
and amateur track athletics. It is ex-
pected that the burden of discussion
will be to arrive at an interpretation
of the word 'amateur,' which now
causes so much dispute as to the lib-
erty of track men who are charged
with professionalism. As a result of
the meeting it is hoped tat uniform
rules will be adopted in all westen
colleges. By a strict adherence to
rules in eastern colleges no amalteur
can receive money or pay of iny kind
for his athletic endeavors, and the
western college athletes intend to
avoid all trouble in the future by mak-
ing rules just as fast and binding for
Thus far nothing has been heard re-
garding Michigan's representative.
It would be a greit accommodation
to hear from all of the senior lits who
have not replied in regard to caps and
gowns. . C. BORST,

President Brodt of the Columbia Col-
lege Debating Union received a letter
from the Oratorical Society of the Uni-
versity of Chicago this morning ae-
cepting Columbia's proposal for an in-
tercollegiate debate. The prompt reply
was the chief topic of conversation
about the college tonight. The stu-
dents received the news with great en-
thusiasni, and favored the imediate
dispatching of a formal challenge.
Columbia favors New York as the
battle ground, but if there are any
serious objections raised they are per-
fectly willing to go West. The Chica-
go orators say they wish to speak any
time before June, so that the New
Yorkers will have the choice of a date.
Some time in April, they think, would
be most desirable.
Some noted statesmen will be asked
to choose the subject, and then the rep-
resentatives of the universities will
draw lots for the sides. Prominent
judges of New York and Illinois will
be invited to decide the argument.
