ment Club on International Arbi-
As a result of the correspondence
which the Good Government Club
have been carrying on for the past
few weeks, Hon. Don M. Dickinson
of Detroit will fill the sixth number
on the Good ' Government Club
lecture course having consented to
speak on "International Arbitration."
Some correspondence took place
with Hon. Theodore Roosevelt of
New York with the hopes that he
might possibly consent to come to
Ann Arbor. A recent letter from
him, however, stated positively that
it would be impossible for him to
come owing to his great pressure of
work. The club then extended their
invitation to Mr. Dickinson with the

In fact every member of the class had
such a brotherly feeling for each
other that only one class ticket was
put in the field this fall and unani-
mously elected. But the brother-
hood was broken up yesterday and
henceforth everybody intends to de-
mand his rights. The bone of con-
tention which caused the muss was
the question of who was to pay for
the $4 class sweaters that the foot-
ball team are wearing. Chas. Croth
ers, of California, who is athletic
manager of the class decided that
the team deserved the sweater and
ordered them, but he forgot to get
the required 0. K. to his bill by the
president and secretary of the class.
Now the latter refuse to O. K. the
bill, the team has the sweaters and
the class convened for trouble. For
two hours the wrangle continued,
waxing extremely warm at times.
The class ended the matter by voting
that Mr. Crothers be sustained in his
action, so that ths team may continue
to wear '00 L. sweaters without pay.
