Detroit Alumni Cup.
The Detroit Alumni Association
of the University has consented to
give a cup for the winners in the
intersociety debates. The cup is a
large one fifteen inches high, of
beautiful design, and has sufficient
room to engrave the name of the
winning society on for 20 years. The
society winning the debating series
each year will have its name en-
graved on the cup and keep it until
it is won away from it by another
society in future contests. The
society whose name appears most
often il the 20 years will at the end
of that tite be given the cup perma-
nently as a trophy. Thus far this
year the Adelphi has defeated the
Webster, and the Jeffersonian the
Alpha Nu. These two winners will
meet it final debate for the first place
on the cup on Friday, May 12.
The Great Band.
Last May Mr. Charles A. E.
Harriss brought Lieut. Dan Godfrey
and his British Guards Band out
from London to Canada. The en-
gagement entered itto was for three
weeks. The success was so stupend-
ous that the engagement was extend-
ed to seven weeks, duritg which
time some 80 concerts were given in
the Dominion, at which over 223,000
persons paid admission. The receipts
it Montreal, were in excess of $6,000
whilst the receipts it Toronto ap-
proximated closely to $10,000, prob.
ably the largest receipts ever earned
in o y two days by any other milt-

sonorous in tone, well balanced, and
under admirable control by its con-
ductor. The band is in itself an or-
ganization that is certainly to be
praised and enjoyed wherever it goes.
It is really admirable, nuch of its
excellence being due to the skill of
the principal solo instruments. It is
seldom that the public is privileged
to hear such musical cornet playing
as Mr. Kettlewell displays, whilst
Lieut. Godfrey's familiarity with the
tastes of the American public seems
to be complete, and much pleasure
can be counted upon from is visit.

God Save the Queen,
Dean Hutchins To Staq.
The rumor has been persistently
circulated that Dean Hutchins of the
Law Department had been offered
and had accepted the presidency of
Iowa University. Dean Hutchins
has gone West and will probably not
return until Sunday, so that no in-
formation could be secured from him.
Mrs. Hutchins denied the whole story
and said: "I do not believe there is
anything in it." Secretary Johnson
of the Law Department said he be-
lieved Dean Hutchins had received a
very flattering offer from Iowa, but
did not know whether lie would ac-
The Washtenaw Evening Times re-
ceived a telegram from Secretary
Haddock, of the Iowa State Univer-
sity, at noon yesterday, in which he
stated that the presidency had not
been tendered to Dean Hutchins, nor
considered at all. Coning from
Iowa City this information would
seem to be correct. It would be wel-
come news here.
There is no foundation in the
stories that Prof. Knowlton was to
become dean of the Illinois Law
School, and that Prof. Mechem was
to go to Harvard. Prof. Knowlton
when asked by the DAILY in regard
to the matter said that was the first
he bad heard of it, and that be had
not been approached on the subject
of going to Illinois,
