This Is What the Faculty Hope to
Bring About.
Professor de Pont says that on
account of the large numbers in the
classes, an old-time rush will be
too hazardous to those engaged in
it. In past rushes many have
been quite seriously injured, while
others have been crippled for life.
While these rushes will probably
not be absolutely forbidden, they
will be discountenanced and other
means of testing the physical
prowess' of the ambitious young-
sters will be substituted.
The professor seems to favor
a tug of war as the simplest
and safest method of settling the
question of superiority. No
doubt better and more humane
contests than the almost barbar-
ous rush will be substituted, It
is also rumored that various mem-
bers of the Freshman and Sopho-
more classes are heartily in favor
of a change, and a mutual agree-
ment to do away with the rush
will be arrived at before long.

Dr. Wincheil and Party Have a Big
Time Among the Rockies.
'Indeed, we enjoyed the trip
immensely," said a member of
the Rocky Mountain Clnb last
evening. The club left St. Paul,
June 12. As the three palace
cars, decorated and gaily laden,
drew out of the city, every one
felt a sense of exhilaration. Soon
our "census man," Mr. Rishmil-
ler, medic '91, began our enumer-
ation and found that we numbered
66, composed of teachers, lawyers,
doctors and studedts. Among
those connected in one way or an-
other with the University of Mtch-
igan were W. A. McAndrew, '87,
Francis Elmer, Dr. G. L. Gates,
Nellie P. Whiting. H. H. Frost;
Dr. A. H. Champlin, J. H. Rish-
miller, B. F. Swift, D. P. May-
hew, W. H. Brennan, and Dr.
On the way we learned that the
Grand Forks people intended to
entertain us by an open air con-
cert. Before we reached there,
however, one of our cars, the Osa-
kis, or "O-say-kis-me" as the boys
dubbed it, had an attack of "hot-j
box." So when we reached the
town the good people had long
since retired. The next day,
though, they decorated our badges
with a miniature club, besides
showing us the town, which we'
shall long remember for its mud.:
In fact, Mayhew-whisper it gen-
tly-got so much on his brogans
that it took the whole party to ex-
tricate him. At Devil's Lake we
took special note of the blue ber-
ries and Indians. The morning
we left this place we were sur-
prised and delighted by the ap-
pearance of the "4Whacker," a
paper devoted to its own interests,
and owing its existence to the ef-
forts of Mr. RIishmiller and Frost
upon a gelatine press.
At one place where the train
stopped we saw a hundred car-
loads of buffalo bones collected
for shipment. It was here, too,
that Professor Winchell, Maylmew
and Swift ranked themselves
among heroes. Some dozens of
Indians had gathered about, seem-
ing, in the ladies' vivid imagina-
tions, to be meditating a massa-
cre. But the professor, having
seized his camera, rushed to the
front and prepared for a shot,
supported by Swift and Mayhew.
Alas for scalps and gory blood-
shed, the noble redmen no sooner
perceived the dangerous instru-
ment than, like a flash, they dis-
appeared behind buildings, boards,
bits of wood, everywhere.
Reaching Helena, we were
taken out to Broadwater, a beauti-
ful bathing resort. Here May-
hew showed his skill in diving by
leaving part of his nose at the
bottom of the tank. From Hel-
ena we continued on to Butte
City, which impressed us as much
by its wickedness as had Helena
for its wealth. We visited the
mines and all places of interest
and came away loaded with speci-
The next place of interest was
Salt Lake, where those could
swim who never swam before.1
Formed in a great ring on the
beach, we all shouted "Whoop-de-
Doodle-doo! Yip! Boo! Yab! hi"!,
the club yell.
At Gunnison's Park our train;
was side-tracked. Leaving the
ears, we rolled ourselves in, ourj

About dusk a rifle shot was
heard, and as we had seen many
tramps, it was deemed best to set
out our guards. To add to the
impressiveness a rock was sudden-
ly hurled.into the tire, scattering
brands in every direction. The
ladies expected every minute to
be murdered. Night came to an
end, however, without serious
trouble. At Colorado City we
visited the Garden of the-Gods, a
place truly wonderful in its gi-
gantic, picturesque formation.
Some of the party climbed to the
top of Pike's Peak, where, after
recovering from the faintness
usual in such altitudes, they in-
dulged in a game of snow-ball.
We now turned directly east-
ward. At Omaha those who had
not fallen out by the way had our
last meeting, pledging ourselves
to meet at the Auditorium, Chi-
cago, during the World's Fair."
