For their Dual Meet With the Class
of k1907 Tomorrow Night-Hot
Competition Promised-Order
of Events-Final Relay
With Varsity men training for the
Cornell meet, the Freshmen for the D.
U. S.- meet and the relay teams for
their final race, the gymnasium is a
busy place these days.
The entries of the Detroit Universi-
ty School have been received and are
printed below. The team on paper
shows up well and ought to give the
freshmen good contests in almost ev-
ery event except the shot put. This
is beyond question the property of
Rose, who is confidently expected to
hurl the 12-pound shot so far that it
will be found with some difficulty.
The strongest man for the visitors
seems to be their speedy little captain,
Kastner, whose record of 51% sec-
onds in the quarter mile places him
as favorite for that event. He prac-
ticed on the Watermann gymnasium
track last Saturday and took the
turns with no apparent embarrass-
Patterson in the high jump has done

tween him and Leete, 1907, promises
to be a pretty one.

Three Candidates for President in the
Field-New Constitution-Regis-
tration is Light With Laws
Apparently in Control.
Among the various political activi-
ties going on about the campus, is
that in the Students' Lecture associa-
tion field. Owing to the fact that the
new constitution has not yet been
made public, and that the registration
of voters is not known, what has been
done in political lines has been mere-
ly tentative, but as soon as these facts
are known and the campaign takes
definite form, it promises to be a
warm one. It is believed that the
registration is small, and that law
voters have the predominance.
So far three men have announced
their candidacy for the S. L. A. presi-
dency. They are James L. Conley, '05
law, C. M. Holderman, '05 and E. J.
Kenny, '05. Conley is a popular man
in his class and has practically no
competition in the law department.
The two literary candidates are both
well known members of the junior
class, and have both been prominent
in the University in debating and ora-
tory. They both class as '06 laws,
having already completed a year of
law work, and will claim votes in the
law department on that score.
The election will take place some
time during the last of April or the
first of May.
