Michiganensian Board Announ-
ces the Results of the
Work on the '98 Michiganensian is
progressing rapidly. The book will not
be issued until after the spring vaca-
tion, as the editors have decided to
make an extensive addition of 50 pages
to the book. This makes it necessary
to postpone the issuing of the book un-
ItI two weeke after the date advertised
for its appearance. As near as can be
judged at present, the book will be on
sale Wednesday, April 27.
The board has decided to make known
the winners of the prize contests. All
the competitions were thoroughly suc-
cessful and brought out a large num-
ber of excellent contributions. The
closest competition was for the best
short story. Over thirty stories were
submitted. The board of Judges, of
which Professor Wicnley was chairman,
awarded the first prize of $2 to Miss
Katherine H. Brown, for her story en-
titled "Sister Mary." The following
quotation is from Professor Wenley's
"The two best stories are 6 and 8.
The former is a most accomplished lit-
erary performance and most creditable
to the craft of its writer. The second
("Sister Mary") is the most original
and dramatic story and most suitable
for Michiganensian purposes. I found
great difficulty in coming to a decision,
but recommend that the prie be given
to number S. Number 4 is also exceed-
ingly good and would have fared well
in a weaker competition."
The Michiganentlan will pi nt all
three of these stories. The judges on
poetry, of whom Professor Scott was
chairman, awarded the first prize of
$10 to Mr. C. Fred Gauss, '98, for his
poem, "A Serenade," Forty-two poems
were submitted in this competition.
Besides the prize poems and stories,
this year's annual will contain many
excellent and interesting features. Two
of the best of these will be two sym-
posiums. One of them is entitled "The
College Graduate in Politics," and con-
tains personal letters written for the
Michiganensian by many of the most
prominent and foremost public men of
our country, including Cleveland, Ho-
hart, Lodge, oosevelt, Dingley, Bailey,
Pingree and many others. The other
symposium is "Selection of a Location
for Practicing Law," and will be of In-
tense interest to te law students. The
editors have secured a lette- from the
chief justice of the supreme court of
almost every state in the Union point-
ing out the advantages which his state
offers to the young practitioner of law.
Both of these symposiums will be of
great interest and value.
The principal featpre of the book,
however, will be the manner in which:
the faculty list is given., There will be
a small half-tone cut, one and one-half
by two inches in size, of each profes-
sor, and a brief sketch of the life, edu-
cation and teaching appointments of
each. Four of these will be run to a
page, and will make the annual very
valuable as a reference book as well
as a most desirable souvenir.
The frontispiece will be a full-page
steel ergraving of Acting-President
Hutchins, to whom the book will be
dedicated. The engraving is being made
by E. A. Wright & Co., of Philadelphia.
The shape of the book will be similar
to the '5 and '9 Pallatiums and C-
talians, but much thicker. The cover
will be of dark green cloth, with stamp-
ing in gold leaf upon it. The design for
the stamp will surpass that of any
other annual ever issued here both in
its beauty and originality, and. has been
designed by a profesisonal artist of
Chicago. The ink which:s being used
on the book is of a greyish-blue tinge,
and gives the half-tcnes a rich, artistic
effect. It is the intention of the editors
to issue a prospectus of the annual
within a few days.
Played a Tle Game,
Bay City again tied the 'Varsity play-
ers yesterday in a rather loosely played
game. The strong wind which prevail-
ed made good playing impossible, and
several fly bals which would have been
easy outs but for this were taken out
of the fielders' reach. The 'Varsity in-
field did well and played with spirit.
Today's game will conclude the series
and both teams will put forth every
effort to win, as the outcome of the
game determines the winner of the ser-
les. A large crowd will be in attend-

A NOBLE RECORD.
Many Michigan Students Took
Part in the Civil War.
The University of Michigan was well
represented in the army during the civil
war, The larger proportion of the
classes '1, '62 and '3 enlisted imme-
diately after graduation, and a large
number from all the classes between
'53 and '60.
For a number of years before the
outbreak of the war the University had
a regularly organized and drilled mil-
itary company. Prof. Trowbridge, a
West Point graduate with first honors,
had resigned his commissicn and ac-
cepted a position to teach mathematics
in the Universits. He organized a com-
pany and drilled it for a number of
years until he left in 1860.
With the outbreak of the war came
great enthusiasm in military organiza-
tion. President Tappan was conducting
services in one of the churches and had
Just finished reading the announce-
ments, when a messenger brought him
a telegram with the news of the at-
tack on Fort Sumter. President Tap-
pan immediately turned to the congre-
gation and said that the flag of the
Union had been insulted and so there
would be no services, but there would
be a meeting on the campus in the af-
ternoon. That afternoon a great dem-
onstration was held on the campus,
President Tappan and a number of cit-
izens making stirring speeches. From
this time on Tappan talked war in pub-
lie and private, and interest was kept
at a white heat at the University.
Large numbers of the students enlist-
ed at once, and thereafter at every call
they responded in greater or fewer
numbers. A number of companies
formed at once, and began drilling
daily after 4 o'clock. They had no arms
nor uniforms, but went through th
nmanual and became quite proficient in
drill. Students constantly left to join
the army, and nearly all who did so
were thoroughly drilled on the ground.
For a time no orgaized effort was
made to organize in exelusive Univer-
sity company, but individuals went out
with nearly every Michigan regiment.
In '62 active steps were takan for the
formation of a University of Michigan
company, when President Lincoln is-
sued a call for "si hundred thousand
more," the Thirty-Seventh .Michigan
was one of the first regfnients to be
formed, and the largest company of
this regiment, Company E, numbering
lU men, wbs composed of students of
the University and the Normal. Prin-
cipal Welch, of the Normal, afterwards
U. S. senator, was very active in enlist-
ing students. Prof. Gabriel Campbell,
'65, now professor of mental and moral
philosophy at partmouth University,
was elected captain of Company E.
