Work in Barbour gymnasium open-
ed last Tuesday, with an enrollment
of 300 girls. The woman's gymna-
siuin work this year is under the
charge of Dr. Helen Brooks, assisted
by Miss Bertha Stewart. No radical
changes have been made in the work
of the gymnasum, by the new direc-
tor. The classes and the character1
of the work are much the same as i
previous years.
Gymnasum work is requiredOf all
the first year girls, who have not had
a year's gym. work elsewhere. The
Ireshman classes meet three timies a
week. The work at the 'first-year
classes consists of Swedish move-
ments, light apparatus and dumb-
bell work, wands, marchiig, fancy-t
steps, games, etc.c
A class for girls having had one -
year or more of gym. work meetsa
four time a week, and does work in
cib swinging, marching, gymnasium
dancing, drills, and apparatus work.'
sUpper class girls are admitted to a
class in fencing, which is to be .
ed. The first meeting of this c ass.
will be at 9:4 a. m. Saturday, No-3
vember 12..
In addition to the regular classt
work, the basket-ball teams for -all
the classes have begun practicidg.t
The old teams have much the same
line-up as in previous years. The
freshmen team will be picked the
last of November.
In several respects the girls' gys.
has been improved this year. Some
new pieces of apparatus have been .
installed, Among other things, two
new Swedish booms, made especially!
for Barbour gymnasium, have been
put in, and are ready for- use. Theset
are to be used for vaulting and arm
and trunk movements.
The swimming tank which has
been completed for two years, is this
year to be filled with water, and putI
in use. Girls of all classes may enter
the swimming classes, and those who
already know how to swim will have,
siecial sections assigned them. Girls'
may enter the gymnasium -to take the
swimming- alone, but whether a girl
enters for regular work, or for swim-1
ming alone, she must take a physi-
cal examination and rent a locker.
There are still plenty of football1
tickets left. They are on sale at
Meyer'r, and ca be secured today
The report that -every seat was sold
was without foundation.
At the University of Minnesota
the students are allowed to partici-
pate in the election of the public of-
ficials. The three parties, democra-
tic, republican and prohibitionist,
were very active before the election.
-Every Seat Occupied-Wede-
meyer, Yost and the Team
The mass meeting held in Univer-
sity Hall last night was easily the-
largest and most enthusiastic ever
held in the history of the Universi-
ty. As early as 6:30 the rooters and
followers of the team began to file
into the auditorium, and by 7:00 o'-
clock every seat was taken, both on
the- first floor and in the gallery.
Stading ropt was all that was ob-
tainable by t hoSe who arrived late.
'Varsity Football Manager Montgot
ery presided ov'er the meeting, while
Professor Stanley led In the songs

"The traditional sueriority in

can hardly blame the colleges of the

ponents. Let us not expect too much
of them, and give them the credit
which is justly theirs for a victory
I feel sure they will win. Not only
on the gridiron has Michigan the
reputation., of being chapion, but
also for the courteous treatment ex
tended visiting teaas and their sup
porters. Next Satnrday let us kcep
'the standard in this particular up
'to that of former years, as Sihigan
proves her claims to the ichaenpion-
ship, not. I believe, of the West
alone, but of the world."
- He spoke briefly of the success of
old Michigan athletes' in other lines,
especially in politics, the names of
Edwin Denby and George P Codd
eliciting a loud burst of applause. t
Coach Yost was then called 6pon
and although the "Smile that won't
come off" was partly visible, he
spoke somewhat pessimistically,
"I shall be satisfied with a vie,
tory, Saturday," he said "I saw Ch(-
cago play last Saturday, and I am
conscientious when I say that we
are going up against the hardest
proposition in them, of the last four
years. Their woik is faster than
that of any team I have seen play.

hope their defense is not so strong.

week, nd Michigan will be well rep-
resented in this critical game. Let

Captain Heston was unable to be
present, but the other members of
the teaI expressed their determin-
ation to exert every effort to win,
and also their appreciation of the
spirit shown at the meeting by the
student body.
