Important Business Transacted at
the Session Yesterday p. m.
The Board of Regents coet yesterday
afternoon and transacted considerable
important business, including the ap-
pointment of teachers and instructors
for the coming year. In opening the
meeting President Hutchins explained
at length the attitt de of the faculty ic
the matter of enlistments. In the course
of his remarks he said:
"The University has already furnish-
ed over 100 seen and two professors,
which must te considered a liberal
cumber under the present call. We do
not feel that at the present time there
is a necessity for a general entistment
by students and we cannot encourage
it. If a further call for volunteers is
made, and the necessity exists, the Uni-
verAity authorities will be found ready
and willing to co-operate and give
every encouraFement. Dr. Charles B.
Nancrede was given a leave of absence
until October 1 to join the Third Michi-
gan Infantry as surgeon. Also the de-
gree of M. D. was conferred en Dr. S.
D. Tobey, of Oakland, Iowa, who left
the senior medical class in the spring
of 1860 to join the Union army.
Prof. V. M. Spaulding was given a
year's leave of absence on account of

In place of the aria Mr. Howland was
expected to sing, he chose "The Two
Grenadiers," and sang it well. Mr.
Howland has a bass voice of very good
quality, and it, together with his use
of it, compares very favorably with
those others of the soloists who have
thus far apepared in the series. He
responded to an encore with a short
piece and was accompanied by Mr. Mol-
lenhauer upon the piano.
Because of the mialaying of the or-
chestral accompaniment to Miss von
Grave's piano concerto, the third num-
ber could not be given as on the pro-
gram. Instead, Mr. Max lHeindl, an-
other familiar figure before Ann Arbor
audiences, rendered the concerto in E
major that he was to give tomorrow
afternoon. Mr. Heindl ranks high as
a vialincellist, and the audience was
fully appreciative of his art. He also
responded to an encore. Miss 'von
Grave will play her concerto tomorrow
The overture to "Gwendoline," by
Chabrier, was rendered as the last num-
ber of the program. It is quite Wag-
nerian in its style and offers a splen-
did opportunity for the orchestra to rise
to its fullest power. And in this case
the orchestra did rise and rendered the
piece in a manner worthy of far greater
applause than it received. The place at
the end of the program was an unfor-,
tunate one owing to the haste the audi-
ience always has to leave the hal. It.
is safe to say, however, that it would
have had a much warmer reception had
it come earlier than it did.

Dr. Nancrede Accepts.
Speaking of Dr. Nancrede's accept-
ance of the position of surgeon .in the
Third Infantry, Michigan Volunteers, chemistry, Ralph Page, salary, $150;
the Detroit Free Press says: "Dr. Nan- assistant in general chemistry, without
crede is * * * one of the most pop-
ular members of the faculty, as well
as being a recognized authority on the
subject he teaches. He has always
been very close to the students. An'
ardent supporter of athletics, he has
for years held a position on the board
of control for the athletics of the Uni-
versity. It is always a familiar sight
at every athletic event on Regents'
Field to see Dr. Nancrede's carriage
drive in, loaded down with children.
The doctor invariably presented a bill
of no .small denomination in payment
of their fare, and it was generally
understood that he, would be insulted
if any change were offered him. His
departure from the campus, even fo, a
brief period, wil e'geatly regretted
by the students in all departments."
