Has Been Established by the Asso-
ciation of Collegiate Alumnn.
The Association of Collegiate Alum-
nm is desirous of encouraging the
pursuit of advance courses of study
among women graduates of colleges.
It therefore proposes to devote $500
every year towards paying the ex-
penses of some young woman who
wishes to carry on her studies in a
foreign country. Applications for
this fellowship will be received by
any member of the committee having
it in charge. The candidates must
be graduates of colleges belonging to
the association, and applications for
the year 1899-1900 must be handed
in before Feb. 1. 1899. A competi.
tive exaination will not be held,
but the bestowal of the fellowship
will be based upon evidence of the
candidate's ability, and her prospect
of success in hr chosen line of study.
The fellowship will not usually be
granted to those who are intending to
take up the practice of any of the
three learnsd professions, though
such are not formally excluded from
the competition; it will rather be be-
stowed upon those who are looking
forward to positions as professors and
teachers and to literary and scientific
vocations. Preference will be given,
other things being equal, to gradu
ates of not more tnan five years'
standing. The fellowship will, it
general, he held for one year; but ia
an unusually promising case, the
term may be extended at the discre-
tion of the committee. Applications
may be made to any of the follow-
ing: Mrs. Bessie Bradwell Helmer,
1428 Michigan ave., Ciicago, Ill.;
Mrs. Helen Hiscock Backus, 57 Liv-
ingston st., Brooklyn, N. Y.; Mrs.
Christine Ladd Franklin, 1507 Park
ave., Baltimore, Md.
Ma Go to Pennss.
Work on track athlectics is to be
begun immediately after the holi-
days. There has been some talk of
sending the team to Pennsylvania's
meet in the spring and to the Eastern
intercollegiate meet at Mott Haven
in June. The Pennsylvania trip is
opposed in some quarters, as the early
traisning is not considered favorable
to a good season's work. Several of
the individual track men will go to
Mott Haven, and it is possible that a
considerable number will go, but
financial considerations will have an
influence. The team lost money last
year on its trip to Pennsylvania.
There will be a meeting of the four
classes of the Medical Department
Saturday morning at the Medical
building to further consider plans
for the organization of a big medical
society. A constitution has been
drawn up and will be considered in
detail at the meeting. There seems
to be a strong sentiment in the
Medical Department that such a so-
ciety is needed and the prospeuts are
good that the steps taken last Satur-
day morning will result in the organ-
ization of a permanent society to-

Harvard Expert Names Best Teams
East and West.
One of the greatest experts en foot-
ball that Harvard has produced, in
the estimation of many critics and an
able gridiron official, was induced to
give his impressions on an all-Ameri-
can eleven. The choice of the Har-
vard man is presented because of its
apparent fairness and chiefly because
the West's twvo greatest kickers.
O'Dea and and Herseliberger, are

Stearns' Collection Here.
The Frederick Stearns' collection
of Musical Instruments reached Ann
Arbor at 8 o'clock yesterday morn-
ing and they were put in the room
that has been set aside for their ex-
hibition, but nothing will be done
toward unpacking thems until the
cases in which they are to be put
arrive. An idea of the size of the
collection may be had from the fact
that there were 38 large cases, mak.
ilg six loads for the "U. Of M."
Law Building Dedication.
The date of the dedication of the
new law building has been set ahead
to Feb. 10, on account of the un-
certainty of the date when University
Hall will be again ready for use.

in the afternoon by some speaker of
national prominence, and a reception
in the new building in the evening.
