Track Team Mass Meeting.
There was an unusually large
crowd at the mass meeting held last
evening. The number of candidates
among the freshmen is larger than in
any previous years. The number of
old members of former teams who are
still in college is also larger than
usual. Nearly all of last year's
team is back this year. With the
training which the candidates will re-
ceive this year we will undoubtedly
have a better track team than ever
Manager Mehlhop presided at the
meeting. In a short speech he out-
lined his plans for the coming season.
The first meet will be an indoor one
at Notre Dame, on March 9th. Chi-
cago, Illinois, Notre Dame and Mich-
igan will have teams each of ten
oen. This year we may have dual
meets with the same colleges as last
year. The one with Illinois, which
will come Srst,-will not be held in
Ann Arbor, but at Champaign. It
has not yet been decided whether the
one with Chicago will be held as us-
ually at Detroit or changed to Ann
Arbor. After these dual meets will
come the Western Intercollegiate to
which Michigan will as usual send a
The substance of Captain McLean's
speech was, "We look toward beat-
iug Chicago and after that winning
the Western Intercollegiate. These
are the two goals toward which the
team must strive, and not be satis-
fied till they are reached. We must
not rely on the old men to do this,
for alone they are not equal to the
task. Last year Chicago tied uss
they were equal to us then. This
year they have a much stronger teami
and we must strengthen our teami
with new men or they will be more
than equal to us this year." He
announced that traning would com--
mence next Tuesday, and continue
till the end of the season. Until the
weather moderates the candidates
will train in the gymnasiun and only
on three nights a week. They are
requested to appear on the floor be-
tween 4:30 and 5:15 p. i. Tues-
days, Thursdays, and Saturdays
when the trainer will take charge of
Dr. Rabethge spoke in regard to
training. ''The policy this year
would be to develop ahead so that wee
will have a reserve, and it will not
be necessary to start il with new
men each year. A second team will
be formed just as in football and the
msen on the second team will later be
on the 'Varsity. This system is
necessary, track athletics have im-
proved so -rapidly in the last few
years, that it is impossible to developt
a man in oie year. Last year by a
fault of judgement on our part we
were tied by Chicago. It will not
happen again under Director Fitz-
patrick's training. Mr. Fitzpatrick
is the best traiter i the country and
will develop a team at Mithigani
this year wich will defeat every~
thinig ii thte West."

Herbert Welch Speaks Tonight.

Government Club Lecture Course
will take place tonight in Newberry
Hall. Hon. Herbert Welch, of
Philadelphia, is to speak on "The
Struggle For Good Government in
Mr. Welch is perhaps one of the
best known of modern reformers.
For several years he has been en-
gaged in an active campaign for
good government in Philadelphia and
Pennsylvania, and the results of his
work have been most gratifying. He
is accomplishing much the same work
in Pennsylvania that was done by
Theodore Roosevelt in New York ten
years or so ago. It is expected that
Mr. Welch's lecture will contain
many of his own experiences in re.
form work and his struggles against
Mr. Welch is a comparatively
young man and a fine speaker. He
is editor of the "City and State,"
the famous reform weekiy of Pennsyl-
vania. He will be entertained while
here by Prof. Henry C. Adams.

previous to the great Harvard gamte.

been announced as Nov. 4, so the
Chicago game will be played Oct. 21.

At the January Regents' meeting

Prof H. S. Carhart, of the depart.
ment of physics, was given a year's
leave of absence to study in Europe.
Prof. Carhart has served on the
faculty continuously for 13 years,
and has had no leave. Joseph H.
Ball, of Ann Arbor, was appointed
assistant in opthalniology. Dr. Nan-
credo presented to the University an
operating table and the apparatus

The sum of $10 was voted for a

awarded to Phillips & Co., of Detroit.
J. K Bolles & Co., of Detroit, got
the contract for shelves and iron

$2,475. An invitation was extended
to those in charge of the farmers' in-
stitutes to old the final round-up in

Writing a Work on Archeologs.
A Kansas City newspaper says
John T. Michau, of St. Joseph, U.
of M. class of '74, is in that place,
working in the public library. He
is writing a work on archoology. Mr.
Michau has spent five months in
Chicago in the public library, six
months in the Astor library in New
York, six months in the British Mu-
seum of London, and several weeks
in both Paris, and Cairo, Egypt. He
will stay in the United States until
he exhausts the resources of her best
libraries m his line and will then go
abroad again. He has spent three
years abroad in study and in exca-
vating in Troy, Asia Minor, and
A Bogus Medical School.
At the last meeting of the Michi-
gan State Board of Health a confer-
ence was had relative to an institution
en Niles, Mich., which by means of
personally-addressed letters, adver-
tises widely the benefits of possessing
one of their certificates which is to
serve as a medical diploma. It seems
that they are selling these diplonas
by mail to doctors as well as to others;
and they issue a photo-engraved copy
of one issued to Dr. N. Seinn, of
Chicago. The institution is incor-
porated under a Michigan law which
seems to have been wisely designed

City, non-resident lecturer oi lpatent
