A Canoe Club.
The University of Michigan has en-
tered upon a new branch of athletics.
In future years the student of the Uni-
versity will have opportunities to see
the 'Varsity crew trying to win honor
and fame for its Alma Mater. This
new branch of athletics is boating. The
beginning of aquatics at Michigan has
taken the form of a Canoe Club organ-
ized by the students. The members of
the club have been at work for some
time completing their organization, and
have had a, number of canoes made,
many of which are already upon the
water. The club will have sa private
boat house built at the foot of Main
st., on the Huron rover, where they
will have their course. A mile and a
half course is easily obtainable by tear-
ing out the old upper dam, which has
already been condemned by the author-
There are sixteen canvas canoes al-
ready upon the river, and eight others
are being made and will soon be ready
for use. At a recent meeting of the
club the following officers were elected:
President, John E. Felker, '99 M.; vice_
president, L. H. Hayes; secretatry, Miss
Felker; treasurer, Wm. E. Stowe, '98
L; commodore, A. S. Kepner, '98 L.
It is the intention of the members of
the club to have races this spring. One
week from tomorrow, Saturday, June
4, they will have a grand regatta. There
will be several races of different dis-
tances, and prizes will be given to the
winners. The object of the regatta is
to arouse an interest among the stu-
dents on the subject of boating at the
University. A proposition will be sub-
mitted to the Athletic Association
which, if accepted, will give the entire
control of the club to the Athletic
Board, and will make boating as much
a branch of athletics here as tennis or
baseball. It is not known what action
the Board will take in regard to the
matter, but the prevailing sentiment
among the students favors some plan
by which this new sport may be given
a place in athletics at Michigan.
Law Professors Will Not Go.
With the announced departure of In-
structor Hughes to accept a. professor-
ship at Illinois, rumor has been rife con-
cerning contemplated resignations of
Profs. Mechem and Wilgus. Concerning
the former, the Daily can say on the
best of authority that Prof. Mechem
has received no call elsewhere, does not
contemplate resigning from the faculty
and will be found at his old post next
year. Prof. Mechem's ability is so well
Last night the Oratorical Association
gave a Gladstone memorial service in
