VOL. I.-No. 39.
UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 1891.
The November number of the
Inlander appears this morning. Its
fifty pages of reading matter present
a great variety of interesting subjects.
The leading article, "A Perversion
of History," by Henry A. Chaney,
lit'69 and law '71, is somewhat sen-
sational in character. It investigates
the circumstances under which the
famous "Ordinance of '87" was
passed and comes to several conclu-
sions that will be a revelation to
students of history. Mr. Chaney
has evidently made the inside histo-
ry of the framing of the "Ordinance
of '87'' the subject of personal in-
vestigation and research continued
through several years. His argu-
ments are clear and convincing, and
arranged in lawyer-like fashion. His
conclusions, though at direct vari-
ance with the commonly received
account, as well as the ingenious
theory of the erudite author of
Poole's Index, are unquestionably a
valuable contribution to history.
The frontispiece is a photo-en-
sravin" of Congressman William C.
I aybury. The accompanying bio-
graphical sketch is witty and enter-
taining. W/ie are glad to see the
Inlander begin a series of articles
oin our older and more prominent
alumni. The Inlander is certainly
the only place for such a series.,
Our alumni should receive more
attention in this line than they have
in times past. "Cicero as a Wit,''
by Prof. Kelsey, is full of the bright
and sparkling humor of the witty
Roman orator. "Carlyle in Lilli-
put" is an excellent review of Dr.
Filucgel's bloc/li/remon Carlyle, which
has been recently translated by Miss
Jessica G. Tyler, the daughter oi
Prof. Moses Coit Tyler, of Cornell,
who formerly occupied the chair of
English Literature at Ann Arbor.
"Lacune in our College Curricu-
lum, I" is evidently the first of a
series of parodies or burlesques. It
ridicules certain methods of scientific
investigation. "The Wall Flower"
is a little poem written in "Ted"
Smith's happiest vein. "The Forg-
ing of a Phrase" is a bit of interest-
ing research. Such original investi-
gations on the part of students are
greatly to be commended. "The
Ballad of Foot-ball" is a clever and
witty poem by Edwin T. Miller.

Ellen E. Garrigues, is long drawn '93 Lit. Defeats '94 Lit.

as well as dramatic movement. It
is not up to her usual standard.
The poem "On a Worn-out Fan" by2
Elsie Jones Cooley, is a very pretty
little idea worked out in delicate 1
and graceful verse. heon J. Rich- t
ardson has done wel l with one of the
less well-known classical stories, in,
a poein called Biton and Cleobis.
But the feature of the Inlander
that pleases us most is the Michigan ,
Verse. It has often been spoken of,
with regret that the U. of l. has not
of late turned out good verse, of a
light character, such as has made the
Brunonian a national favorite among
college papers. The Michigan verse
in the November Inlander shows
conclusively that Ann Arbor stu-
dents are capable of writing as goodt
verse as any college students in
America; that the talent has been
here all along but the medium of
expression has been lacking. The
poems of Arthur H1. Holmes show
great skill in verse making; Kent1

and '94 lit. was played on the camp-
us yesterday afternon. It was a
spirited game, and after the first fif-
teen minutes was closely contested, NEW
honors being about evenly divided.
Shields captained '94 and Nicholson
the '9; team. The game was called
in the middle of the second half on PRICE
account of darkness. The first
touch-down was made by Cleverdon.
ihe ball was rushed by '93 within LIST
'94's 25-yard line. Nicholson kick-1
ed it over the goal line on three
downs. Williams fumbled the ball-
and Cleverdon fell upon it. the
ball was punted out inside 94 s five-__
yard line. Score, 4-0. Shields
was forced to make a safety in the
next scrimmage. 6-o. Soon after,
Conklin made a touch-down around
the right end.-so-o. No goal.
By a series of short rushes, Parker
scored the third touchdown for whieiiyou,

by ' 93. Dhe sophomores braced R.
