Seniors Wilt Support Reception.
The seniors held a stormy class meet-
ing yesterday afternoon. The old ques-
tion of the class tax came sip and
whether the seniors as a class should
support the reception. Fir a time it
looked as if the friends of tor recepttos,
would be obliged to carry out their
plans unaided, but by a narrow niaJor-
ity it was finally voted to tax each
member of the class one dollar to go to-
wards the class memorial; sixty cents
from each member will be used for class
day exercises,-asnd the renamainder of the
tax will be used for incidentals.
It was also decided not to aliow any
reduction in the price of tickets for the
nenior reception to members of the sen-
ior class, as has been the custom in

Company of U. S. Regulars to,
be Organized Here.
A recruiting officer has been appoint-
ed and a company will probably be or-
ganized here next week, consisting of
those who are willing to go to the front.
The company, if organized, will be sent
immediately to the front. It will prob-
ably be recruited from the companies
now drilling on the camus. The men
will be enlisted for the regular period,
three years, but as the army is already
above the number required for a peace
footing, the company would be dis-
charged as soon as the war was over.
Before any of the men will be accepted
they must undergo a strict physical ex-
amination. Mr. Lister, of the medical
department, has been appointed assist-
ant medical examiner. Transportation
has been secured from here to Fort
Wayne, where the company, if orgaized.
will be equipped. Captaim Roberts, the

The Game Today.
Illinois, whonr the 'Varsity defeated
in a great game on the spring trip by a
score of 4 to 3 (ten innings), will make
their only appearance of the season on
Regents Field today. Illinois, like Chi-
sago, always makes Michigan play the
fastest article of ball she has. Last
year, it will be remembered, Michigan
defeated Illinois 7 to 3 on their grounds,
but the return game resulted in a vic-
tory - fir Illinois 3 to 0. The Sucker
State representatives are determined to
repeat the experience and today will
present their strongest team. Since
meeting Michigan the work of Illinois
has improved, so say reports. Thurs-
day they defeated De Pauw, one of the
strongest teams in Indiana, 19 to 6.
Michigan's work, too, has pisked up
most gratifyingly since returning front
the spring trip, and, it is believed, will
give the visitors a battle royal.
The 'Varsity took regular work yes-
terday and will line up as follows;
Lunn, c.; Miller, p.; Condon, lb.; Cooley,
Ib.; Gilbert, s..; Wolf, 3b.; Matteson, If.;
McGinnis, m.; Butler, rf.
The contest is. one of the scheduled
Western Intercollegiate League games
and will be called promptly at 3 o'clock.
The Philosophical Society is expect-
ing to hold a meeting soon. The pro-
gram so far this semester has been
quite irregular owing to the impossibil-
ity of several of the faculty members
to fulfill their engagememits. Papers
bave been promised by Professors Wen-
key Walter and Scott, and it is hoped
to have the next meeting early this
month. It is not yet announced what
the subject for the meeting wilt be. A
