drm for he tChoral Uniona short discussion of the changes
in view of the fact that a re-
eent editorial has been interpreted
by some as reflecting upon the
work of Manager Codd, simple
justice to him and ourselves de-
mands the statement that nothing
of the kind was intended, as a
careful reading will show. The
editorial was a general protest
against ring politics. If our rec-
ord, at the close of the season, is
not all that is desired, the fault
will be attributed to the lack of
support which results from the
prevailing college apathy and the
delayed election of the board, not
to official mismanagement.
As early as Sept. 15 the iana-
ger had arranged games for every
Saturday until Thanksgiving day.
Since college opened, however,
nearly every day has bronght let-
ters cancelling these scheduled
games, various reasons being giv-
en therefor, and ,it has required
the most strenuous effort to fill
these cancelled dates. That all
dates are now about filled reflects
great credit on Manager Codd.
The schedule, (subject to possible
change), is as follows: Nov. 1,
Purdue, at Ann Arbor; Nov. 7-11,
Indiana trip, (playing the princi-
pal Indiana colleges); Nov. 15,
Cornell, at Detroit; Nov. 22, De-
Pauw, at Ann Arbor; Nov. 27,
