Veteran End Gives Coach Happy
Surprise - Quarterback Posi-
tion Causes rierry Fight.
Hfarry Hammond, end on the varsity
for the past three seasons, reported at
Ferry Field yesterday afternoon and
will immediately begin football practice.
Hammond is another of the veterans
who, with Newton and the others, was
not expected to be available for the
1907 eleven, but his appearance yester-
day dispels all doubt. He is in good
condition, and with his punting and de-
fensive ability, should make a good man
for one of the ends. This afternoon
for the first time the varsity squad will
probably contain practically its full
strength. Newton and Rheinschild will
be in-tniform sd it is likely that Ham-
Mond will, be ott hand. This of cotrse
will necessitate a shift in the line tip of
the first eleven, although Hammond and
Newton will be let off with compara-
tively light work for a few days.
At the last moment, Coach Yost de-
cided that the men had not had -stifli-
cient conditioning work and deferred the
first seritnage tstil this afternoon.
The practice, as a result, consisted of
work on the formations which will be
utilized against the scrubs Saturday, and
against lennsy and the other opponents
later in the season .
Yesterday's practice was the most
strenuous workout that Yost has meted
out to the candidates so far this year.
From three o'clock until dark the cat-
sdidates were chased from one end of
Ferry Field to the other, until every
man on the' squad (excepting "Germany"
Schulz. and "Octy" Graham, who never
tire) had pathetically inquired the hour
at least twice. While the varsity was
working on the old varsity gridiron, the
scrubs under the tutelage Of last ye s
assistant Coach Rheinschild were dg
stunts on the class field at the south
extremity of the old field. The regular
team, which was composed of muchs
lighter men than made p Rheinschid's
squad, lined up as follows: Schulz,,
center; Graham and Watkins, guards;
Embs and Crumpacker, tackles; Casey
and Douglas, ends; Wasmund and Mil-
ler, quarterback; -Magoffin left half-
back; Rumney and Kelley, right half-
back; toell and Allerdice, fullback.
Coach Yost is more than a little
amused at the reports supposed to have
emanated from Ann Arbor to the effect
that Michigan's fne is to be composedi
of a mountain of beef.
Right now," said the coach, "there
are just two men on the entire eleven
who weigh more than 200 pounds each,
and they are Schulz andi Graham.
Schulz weighs about 220 and Grahams
215. When in condition Casey will not
weigh more than 195 pounds, and with
the exception of these three men, none

Chenting Thomas Wang says that it

number of faculty men, special music,

ment provided at the annual receptiks

tonight. The social committee has se-
cured some excellent numbers for a
short program.

fall to find work than ever before.

Last year 500 needy students were
helped in their endeavors to secure an
education; $to,ooo represents an approx-
imate amount earned by them during the
school year.
Over 4,000 Michigan hand-books have
been published, representing an expense
of over $600.
The building has been greatly im-
proved this summer. The correspond-
ence room has been redecorated. Ele-
gant new billiard and pool tables have
been placed in the north rooms, which
also have been redecorated.
Secretary Carl Smith has now a pri-
vate office on the second floor, while ons
the main floor a room has been put in
shape for all committee meetings.
Owing to the growth of the associa-
tion work, a new secretary has been
added to the force. Mr. John H. Snook,
a Michigan graduate, and also of the
Union Seminary, New York City, will
fll the position. Mr. Snook was at one
time intercollegiate secretary in New
York City and comes to Michigan well
equipped for his work. He will assume
his duties at once.
At a meeting of the general council
of Phi Beta Kappa on Sept. in, Mich-
igan's application for a charter was ac-
cepted and approved.
This general council, at which repre-
sentatives of all the Phi Beta Kappa
chapters were present, also granted a
charter to the University of Illinois.
The installation of Michigan's chapter
will take place at a date to be arranged
later. At these formal exercises an
official sent to represent the society will
present the University with its charter.
The Phi Beta Kappa men on the fac-
ulty were largely instrumental in secur-
ing for Michigan a chapter of this fa-
mous honor society,

Dr. Beziat Thinks a Tour of
France with a Cercle Francais
Play Quite Feasible.
There is every probability that a
troupe of Michigan French students,
members of the Cercle Dramatique
Francais, will cross the ocean next year
and present French plays in Paris and
at the French universities.
When Dr. A. Beziat de Bordes visit-
ed France this summer and told his
friends there of Michigan's French club
and the success which its presentation
of "Le Bourgeois Gentihomme" at-
tained, he was urged to make arrange-
ments for bringing the troupe to Paris.
He discussed the idea with a number
of university professors, the United
States ambassador, and the consul gen-
eral fron this country. All were greatly
interested in the project and promised
their support. The officers of the Asso-
ciation of Students of the University of
Paris, when told of the plan, assured
Dr. Beziat that they would welcome the
American students with open arms and
would take steps to secure for them the
Theatre Francais, and perhaps the
Odeon and Theatre Sarah Bernhardt.
Social functions would be organized,
they added, and the Michigan students
officially received by the highest govern-
ment officials. Inasmuch as there are
about 14,000 students in attendance at
the University of Paris and a colony
of sonic 12,000 American students, the
officers felt assured that there would be
no difficulty in covering the expenses of
the trip.
Prof. Julian Tiersot of the National
Conservatory of Music, who is a per-
sonal friend of Dr. Beziat, became
warmly interested in the idea. He
offered to take charge of arranging for
the music of the performance and sug-
gested that, as it was to be a student
affair, the orchestra should be composed
of students in the Conservatory.
"As far as the French side goes, all
is' prepared," said Dr. Beziat yesterday.
"It remains to be seen whether a suffi-
ciently strong cast can be gathered from
the Michigan student body. We shall
have a general tryout for places in the
cast and those most proficient in their
knowledge of French and dramatic abil-
ity will be selected.
"While the performances will un-
doubtedly more than pay the expenses
of the trip, we shall endeavor to raise
sufficient funds so that the plans may
be completed regardless of box receipts.
There are many rich alumni and per-
sons interested in French who wih
doubtless be glad to lend their support
in having Michigan the first American
university to send a delegation of her
students to France as the guests of the
University of Paris."
An effort will be made to persuade
all students of the University intending
to go abroad in the near future to leave
next year and participate in the enter-
tainments which will be provded at
