means of advertising the great insti-

The good that has been done in
bringing the U. of M. to the atten-
tion of all sections of the country is
inestimable. A number of cultured
and educated young men such as
make up the personnel of the Glee
Club would do more towards setting
forth the advantages of the U. of
M. than all other means of adver-
tising combined. Nor is this all.
To the alumnus, who chances to
hear the college songs of his alma
mater rendered by the Glee Club
during its tour, thoughts of former
days crowd upon his memory, thus
helping to keep alive that fraternal
spirit which should exist between
the college student of today and the
alumnus. Then again, how our
Glee Club tends to enliven our col-
lege society, by their enlivening
It is the aim of the management
to secure the best voices in college
irrespective of class or affiliations.
To this end an examination will 'e
held in room 24, tonight, at 7 p. !n.
Every one possessing a good voi e

There is but one way to obtain
the best men, and that is by urging
all who can sing to attend this ex-
amination. There is an especial
need of first tenors. It is desirable
that practice should begin at once in
order that the club may be ready [to
appear in public at the earliest pos-
sible moment. Of course it is
understood that only the vacancies,
created by the men who graduated
last year. are to be filled.
If these vacancies can he filled
immediately the club will soon be
in practice for the year.
The club will make its annual

Important Transactions of th eAth-
etic Board, Last Evening.
The Athletic board held its regu-
lar monthly meeting in room 9, last
evening. General routine business
was transacted. Treasurer Sharp-
less reported $550.63 in the ex-
checker. Profs. McLaughlin and
Rolfe, of the advisory board, werej
present, and suggested that the $400
given to the board by the Lecture
Association, be used in permanent
improvements of the ground, and
and that the association pay for all
temporary improvements out of the
regular receipts. Considerable dis-
cussion as to what events should be
included in field day, followed, as
this would have much to do in de-

lectures on subjects not yet an-
nounced. The University of Mich-
igan joined an association composed
of the most prominent universities
in the northwest, for the purpose of
carrying out the University Exten-
sion movement in the west.
The Board of Regents have con-
sented to excuse professors from
college work in order to give them
an opportunity to visit cities at a
distance from Ann Arbor. As a
rule, however, the lectures in cities
nearer to the University will be de-
livered on days and at times which
will not materially conflict with the
professors' college duties. Each
professor giving a series of lectures
has prepared a syllabus of the lec-
tures, which contains an outline of
the work and a bibliography of the
subjects, more or less completed.
A quiz on the lectures delivered is
held at stated times and after the
completion of the course a certificate
given, if so desired.'
The list of subjects embraces
nearly every line of thought, of in-
terest to the thinking man of today
and this movement will, no doubt,
be very popular during the coming
