The 7:30 train over the Michigan
Central this morning bore our repre-
sentatives on their way via Chicago
to this year's Northern Oratorical
LeagueS contest. There was a party
of three, J., II. Mays, who is to be
our speaker in the contest, F. L. In-
graham, his alternate, and J. B.
Brooks, Michigan's delegate to the a.n
nual meeting of the Northern Ora-
torical league. A small crowd of ora-
torical euthusiasts were gathered to
see them off and to wish them suc-
cess in the contest. They will be met
upon their arrival in Chicago by repre-
sentatives of the Chicago Alumni as-
sociation, and will be given a boufie
luncheon before their departure for
Iowa Gity, Ia., where the contest takes
place this year, under the auspices of
the University of Iowa. It is pos-

THAT CALIFORNIA MEET
Is Now Pretty Certain to Go
Through All Right.
Tho much talked of dual field day
with the University of California is at
last pretty sure to go through. Mr. A.
W. North, tmanager of the California,
track team which will start east to-
morrow arrived in town late last
ttight. He left for Princeton at S
o'clock this morniltg, but before lie
left had made arrangements for a,
ineeting vith us on our own grounds
June G or S. The date that ill finlly
be choseu dep)nds upon two things,
whether the Board of Control will
allow the games to be held on a week
day, Thursday, June '6, and whether
the game scieduled for June S With
Beloit can be changed.
As to the arrangements for the meet-
ing they are in alnost every respect
the same as those Mr. North made
with the other colleges and teams ie is
to meet, viz., Princeton, Pennsylvania,
perhaits Wisconsin, and the Denver
A. C. The program consists of the
regular list of fourteen events which
make up the American Intercollegiate
championships, viz., 100 and 220 yards
dashes, 440 and 880 yards run, mile
run, mile walk, two miles bicycle, 120
sociation medal for the winner of thte and 220 yards turdle, rutitg broad
annual university oratorical contest.
The intercollegiate contest will take
place Friday night, and our repre-
sentatives went thus early in order to
savo plenty of time for rest. Prof.
Trueblood did not go with them this
year, but will follow after the Depew
reception is over tomorrow afternoon.
They were accompanied, however, by
one other, Mr. Baldwin, of Denison
University, who goes to Galesburg,
Ill., to compete in the interstate ora-
torical contest. He has been here to
be prepared for the contest by Prof.
Each yeaxf for several years past the
two dehating societies of the law de-
partment have held a series of three
debates, the winner being the victor
in two of the debates. Last year th'e
Vebster society won from its com-
petitor in two debates and the Jef-
fersonian did not deem it necessary
to hold the. third.
The first debate of this year's series
will be held in the law lecture rooti
Friday, May 10, comme'cfing at S p.
m. A. H. Covert, '95 L, and P. J.
Crosby, '96 L, will represent .the Jef-
fersoian while Frank Tauke, '05 L,
and E P. O'Leary, '96 L, will debate
for the Websters.-
Mrs. Beman and Mrs. l. E. Cooley
will chaperon tle senior social tomor-
and high jumps, pole vault, shot put
and hammer' throw. As the California
team consists of but ten men, it is con-
ceded to her that Michigan shall start
no more thtan the three men in any
one event ansd that only first and sec-
ond places shall count, first place
counting five points and second place
two. The university winning a major-
ity of all the points shall receive the
Freshman Banquet Friday Night.
Arrangements for the freshman ban-
quet, which takes place Friday even-
ing are rapidly progressing and every-
things points to a brilliant success.

tenwdance. Tickets may be secured
of any member of the cottmittee on
arrangements and it is urged that all
freshmten who intend to go buy their
