Friends oil Expansion Think They
are Getting Too Much Anti-Impe-
A considerable movement has
started among certain students, againstt
the efforts of the ianagement of the
various lecture courses to fill At"n
Arbor with a surfeit of anti expan-
sionist ideas. The Students Lecture
Association brought Burke Cockrani
here on Feb. 4 to speak against Im-
perialism. Another management se-
cured Wm. J. Bryan to come on
Feb. 18, to speak on the same sub
ject. The last straw "on the ex-
pansioniet's backs was the action of
the committee in charge of the an-
nual Washington Birthday celebra-
tion whereby Congressman Chas. A.
Towne, of Minnesota, was invited in
speak on the same subject. All these
lectures have been held in University
Hall and have drawn large audiences.
As a result of a clamor on the part
of a large number of students the ex-
ecutive committee of the Good
Government Club yesterday decided
to try to bring to Ann Arbor several
men to speak it favor of expansion.
Congressman William Alden Smith
has already accepted at itvitation,
and will speak as soon as a date cant
be definitely arranged. Arrange-
ments are being made whereby it is
expected that Senator Cushman K.
Davis who is an alunus of Michigani
will also come. Meanwhile they pro-
pose to give the students the benefit
of local talent and will probably ar-
range to have certain members of the
faculty address the students in the
near future both pro and con on the
subject of Expansion.
The Track Team Will do Light Work
With Fitzpatrick's return, the track
team training which was going along
rather slowly, has beent greatly stimu-
lated. From now until the close of
the season, the trainitg will be con.
stant. This is somewhat earcer than
training usually commences at Michi-
gan. The faults of our track teams in
previous years has been undertrain-
ing rather than overtraittiug. For
the first few weeks the work will be
light, but the amount wil be in-
creased as the men develop into con-
dition. Mr. Fitzpatrick will be at
the gymna-ium every day from 9 to
12 a. m. and from 2 to 6 p. i. vwhen
any who wish to talk to him about
their training may do so.
For convenience in handling thee
men they will be divided up into
squads and wherever it is practica-
ble, placed under the supervision of
some member of last year's team.
For the present, most of the men
will train indoors, though it is hoped
that the weather will soon be favor-
able enough to allow outdoor work.
The distance men commenced out-
door running the first of the week

mence as soon as the ground is suffi-

in hammer throwing or wish to learn

The distance men, mile and half
mile, will be in one squad. When-
ever it is not storming, they will do
outdoor work. They will report to

The walkers will also be a squad
by themselves. They will report to
Brookfield every afternoon at 5
The pole vaulters may practice
anytime during the morning or from
3 to 4 o'clock in the afternoon.
The importance to the track team
of this early practice cannot be over
estimated. Every one who has the
least desire to make the team should
come out at once and not wait for at
personal invitation. Even a totally
inexperienced man can if lie has any
ability develop into a very fair athlete
in the long season of training whicht
we will have this year. Those who
are interested in Michigan's athletic
success, but have no ambitions to be
athletes, should take it upon them-
selves to urge the likely ones who do
not come out either because of
modesty or laziness, to try for the
team. All who know of any man
who might become a track athlete,
but is not now trying for the team,
are requested to give his name to
Verdier Elected Student Manager
for Next Season.

sity circles for the past three years
and has held many offices of interest

credit. No better choice could have
been made for the position, involving
as it does much responsibility.
F. H. Lancashire, '01 E., of De-
troit, was elected assistant baseball
manager for the coming season. Mr.
Lancashire's election will leave a
vacancy on the board of directors
which will be filled at a subsequent

Remarkable Operation at the Uni-
Saturday last, Dr. Nancrede re-
moved a large brain tumor 3 inches
by 2.5 by 1.5, which had produced
almost rotal loss of speech, and de-
cided paralysis of the right arm and
leg. The patient came from Port-
land, Oregon, to consult Dr. Nan-
crene. It was a most obscure and
puzzliag case, yet the Doctor was
able to determine almost the exact
condition as shown by the operation.
It was necessary to remove a piece of
bone 3.5 by 3 inches in order to
reach and remove the enormous
tumor which compressed those large
portions of the brain presiding over
the functions lost. The patient
promptly regained her speech and
improved in the use of her hand and
leg. A permanent recovery is confi-
