CHARLES BAIRD RETURNED
'THE ALUMNAL BANQUET AT CH I-
CAGO AND FOOTBALL MEETING.
A.' A;'Stgg Representative to the
Changes In.Football Rules-Reso-
.lelbna on the Great Colege Sport.
Charles )aird returne d yesterday
from Evanston and Chicago, where,
he was sent AS thedelegate of the
Athletic association. Mr. Baird spoke
enthusiastically of the Chicago Alumni
assotlation banquet Saturday, whre
he repaoaded to the toast on "Ath-
letics.' He said that Presi'dent
Adams, of Wisconsin, in speaking of
football, said lie "would far rather
see ,football played with its present
abuses than to see it abolished."
Mr. Baird regarded the meeting of
western college football men at Evans-
ton as of little importance. Repre-
sentatives were present from Minnu.-
sota, Lake Forest, Beloit, Northwest'
ern, Chicago, Wisconsin and Michi-
gan. Football reforms were discussed
Friday and Saturday, and it was de-
cided to send A. A. Stagg as repre-
sentative of the different colleges in
the convention to the meeting to bo
called in the East for revision of the
football rules. Wisconsin and Michi-
gan refused to concur in the action
the couerehme took, on the ground
'that the meeting was not one of the
representative football colleges of the
West and because there seemed to be
no authority back of the represent-
The proposed changes in the football

ASSOCIATION ON SOCIETIES?
Who Is to Control Intercollegiate
The.action of the Oratorical associa-
tion in endeavoring to get control of
the intercollegiate debate has created
a. stir in the societies that it would
affect. The societies wo have had
control of this annual contest, and to
wlhom, if to anyone, credit is due for
success attained In the past are the
Adelphli, the Alpha Nu, the ester,
and the Teffersonian; and it seems
as if decided opposition will be made
to any such move as that proposed
by the Oratorical association.
The Adelphi at their last meeting
took a decided stand on the question
and instructed the person sent to place
1 the matter before them and report
t back to the association, which holds
A SUMMER IN PARIS.
MR. MORITZ LEVI SPEAKS. BE-
FORE THE UNITY CLUB.
The Gay French Capital Described
A Parisian Street a Perpetual Mu-
seum-The "Latin Quarter."
One of the brightest papers given in
Ann Arbor this year was that read
by Mr. Levi at Unity club last even-
ing. It was full of humorous turns
and at the same time showed a
'acquaintance with Paris that ferw Am-
ericans ever acquire.
Paris, he says, is one of the most.
interesting cities in the world. Every-
thing is alive and the people seem to
have the art of getting the most
pleasure possible out of life. A 'aris"
street is a veritable museum, with
its street venders; companies of sol-
diers, brass bands, street corner jug-
glers, men with performing animals,
and everything else that the best lim-
agination could picture. Boys and
men run about with papers and wo-
men have newstands at the corners.
Along the banks of the Seine are the
old and second hand book stalls where
thousands of books are piled up for
sale at a surprisingly low figure.
The Latin or Students' Quarter is
perhaps the moat full of int-rest for
us. This is the traditional home of
Parisian and indeed French learning.
Almost all the great names of France
have been connected with it, and the
same might be said for the present
time. The Parisian students are
happy and careless, enjoying nothing
more than a practical joke and in-
dulged by the police to a considerable
degree. Riots, however, are of rare
