they were right and submitted their
case to President Hutchins, who wiseiv
advised them to reach some amicable1
settlement if possible. One faction
claimed that they had repeatedly asked
the vice-president to call the election
for some day this week and that she
esaded them by saying that she hadn't
as yet decided what day she would call
The other faction claimed that it was
her right to call the meeting for elec-
tion when she chose and that she did
not have to take anyone's advice in the
matter. The vice-president did not
deny, however, that she had had a
week's notice to call the meetin for yes-
terday, but declared that it was not
There are two tickets in the fieid.
One is backed by those who supported
the "all Michigan" ticket at the fresh-
man class election last fall, while the
other is being supported by nearly ail
foreign students and by many Michi-
gan men. The contest promises to be
close, both sides claiming the victory
with equal assurance.
Dr. Nancrede Says Good Bye.
While Major Nancrede was in the
city Thursday he appeared before the
senior medical class to say a last fare-
well. He said that he had gone to the
front from a spirit of loyalty, but also
he had another motive, namely, a de-
sire to advance science. "There are
certain things which can only be
learned by experience, and for that
reason I have gone.
The 'members of the medical faculty,
together with the student body, intend
to present the major with a horse. A
committee has been appointed and sub-
scriptions have already been started
towards that end.
The flag that will float from the $375
flag-pole; recently ordered by the Uni-
versity board of regents, is one of the
two 40-foot world's fair flags, secured
by the Chicago alumniof the University
of Michigan at the close of the fair.
The lower 60-feet of the pole is to be
Another Fruit and Flower Social
The ladies of the Fruit and Flower
Mission will hold another dance in the
gymnasiums Saturday night, May 28.
It will be an informal party, as was
the May Pole dance, and the proceeds
will go to the hospital fund of the
society. The success of the May Pole
party has encouraged the society to
give another, and with dance tickets at
only 25 cents a very large audience is
expected. Music will be furnished by
the U. of M. Band.
The proceeds of the May party were
used in furnishing the sun room at the
University hospital, and proved quite
sufficient for the purpose. The funds
resulting from the next , dnce will be
used in purchasing furri. hings for the
nurses' home. The regents have only
been able to appropriate money enough
for the most necessary furniture. and
the Fruit and Flower Mission wish to
add a few comborts.
The third ga.e- of the class series
was played at the fair grounds this af-
ternoon between the '99 Dents-and A. A.
H. S. teams, the former winning 7 to 4.
The special feature-of the game was
three fights between members of the
opposing teams and rooters. "Pat"
Murfin, a high school rooter, was
struck in the stomach by a foul ball
and laid out for a half hour. In the
first inning the high schools succeeded
in making three runs and held the
Dents down till the fifth, when they ran
in two scores. The high school then
went to pieces without once recovering'
themselves. Newhausel, Dent, knocked
out a three-bagger, and White, high
school, a two-base hit.

All arrangements have been made for
the handicap shoot, to be held by the
University Gun Club this afternoon at
the grounds on S. State st. It will un-
doubtedly be a grand success. The
committee who'had charge of arranging
the handicaps met last night with Capt.
Shepherd and decided upon the handi-
caps. The scrach man will get 25 shots
and the rest of the shooters will vary
on up to 35 shots, which is the limit.

men as follows: Flansburg 25 (scratch);
McMillan, 26; Lambert, 26; Hutchinon,
26; Oliver, 27; Churchman, 29; Norton,
30; Shepherd, 30; Van Horne, 31; John-
son, 31; Hubbard, 31; Raymond, 33; Rice,
24; Whittlesey, 35; Woodrow, 35; Upham,
There are seventeen entries so far.
It is desired to have as iany more as
pousible, and every man in the Uni-
versity is requested to come out and
enter in the shoot. Any one who en-
ters who has not shot before with the
club will be put scratch. Guns and
ammunition can be obtained at the
club house by all who wish, to shoot.
There will be four prizes, which -will
consist of a certain number of cart-
ridges for each. The exact number v.ill
depend upon the number of entries,
The following editorial is taken from
Thursday's issue of the Wisconsin Car-
dinal, and would tend to show that Wis-
consin is not very enthusiastic over the
record her ball team is making for her:
As we expected, our baseball team
is adhering . to the traditions if the

in lresng all games played on the trip
so far. Judging from the showing of
the team in these games, the prcspects
of losing one or more of the remaining
three games are most excellent. The

be no n.ore disappointing for t'ison-
sia s emthusiasts than it is for Chicags
and fi'higan. These latter instiutions
