The executive committee of the
Whist Club met during the late inter-)
mission and transacted very important
business. G. A. Miller was appointed
captain of the four teams that went
to Jackson Tuesday to compete in the1
tournament of the Central Division ofr
the Michigan State Whist League. Th g
four teams to represent the Universitye
were Hyde and Driggs, Miller andq
Murrell, Ellsworth and Russel, and t
Bowen and Hawkhurst. The chancest
for the success of the local players aree
Another important action was ton
change the method of ranking the play-
ers. After this the teams will not be y
ranked upon the number of points wona
or lost, but upon the number of games, t
each night's play being counted one
game. The old -method of playing 3
boards, no overplay, will be used to de- F
termine the winners each evening.c
This method seemed more equitable and F
just, as it would prevent any team r
from jumping up in rank a dozen
places, or of going down the same num-
her of picos by some erratic playing
,1 co evening,
,The prest standing of the teams ac-
cording to the new method of ranking

A few rules, formulated by the secre-
tary to insure promptness in play and
to prevent talking or comparing of
scores during the progress of the
games, were alsotadopted.sAn amend-
ment to the constituton was also re--
ported favorably increasing 'he semes-
ter dues from 2to 50 cents each sem-
So successful in every particular has
the handball tournament in singles,
which is now drawing to a close, proven
that it has been decided to hold an-
other in doubles. Every day of play in
the singles has seen the interest in-
creasing until now it is at fever heat.
That this interest may not be allowed
to die out it was announced yesterday
,that the athletic association would of-
.fer three prizes to be contested for in
doubles. The first round will be play-
ed next Saturday and already several_
teams have'entered. Entries should be -
