ANN ARBOR, MICH., SATURDAY, MAY 28, 1904.
Won Preliminary Heats in Both Dash-
es in Record Time-Strong
Wind Helped Good
The track preliminaries for the sev-
enth annual Michigan Interscholastic
meet were run off yesterdayafternoon.
The fields were smaller than were ex-
pected, because several large teams,
notably Morgan Park and Cleveland
University School failed to show up.
The Cleveland University men went
to Ithaca where they expected a bet-
ter chance in the Cornell interscho-
The preparatory school boys made
a good impression generally but no
new performers of marked ability.
Hogenson of Lewis Institute was the
star of the day. The Chicago sprinter
won his heats with ease and first place
in both dashes tomorrow are conced-
ed to him. Favored by a strong wind
at his back, Hogenson covered the 100
yards in 10 seconds fiat and the 220
in 22%. Both marks improve on the
Michigan Interscholastic records.
The first heat of the quarter mile
produced the race of the afternoon.
Keays of Ann Arbor got away in the
lead but the fast pace told on him
when the wind hit him at the stretch.
He had strength enogh left to break
the tape ahead of Wykes.
Two Central High men from Detroit
Shaw and Smith won their heats in
the 120 yard hurdles. Hurlbert of
Oak Park was satisfied to qualify and
did not exert himself.
This morning the field preliminaries
will be disposed of in order that the
finals in the afternoon will be free
from tiresome delays. Judging from
the work of yesterday there should be
nip and tuck fights in the hurdles and
Although yesterday was an ideal
day for the spectator, the attendance
was disapointing. Today the stands

to be first-class.

PREPARING FOR CONFERENCE
The track men are not letting the
Interscholastic interfere with their
preparations for the conference meet.
Several of the husky stars excited the
envy of the high school boys yester-
day afternoon and still more did their
day's stunt in the morning. Tomor-
row the men will work out as usual.
VER EIN PLAY TONIGI1T.
University German Club Presents "Die
Hochzeitsreise" in Sarah Cas-
well Angell Hall-Dr.
Tonight the Deutsche Verein will
present Benedix's comedy "Die Hoch-
zeitsreise" in Sarah Caswell Angell
Hall, Barbour Gymnasiuni. Thee taste
consisting of Miss Freeman, Miss
Kingsley, Mr. Newmarker, Mr. Lauer,
ad Mr. Goodrich have been working
hard on the play under the direction
of Dr. Florer and judging form last
night's rehearsal, the play this eve:
ning should be a great success.
The plot of "Die Hochzeitsreise"
is simple but a succession of incidents
keeps the audience in a state of meri-
ment. The hero of the play, Prof.
Otto Lambert, is a man who has no
interests outside his books. He in-
herits a large fortune on condition
that he marries. The professor has
no inclination towards marriage butt
he desires money in order to purchase
more books and therefore complies
with the stipulated condition and
brings his bride home. He assigns
her a bleak dreary room in the attic
and then loses himself among his be-
loved books. This ends the first act.
At the beginning of the second act,
which takes place the morning after
the wedding, the professor is disturb-
ed by his wife's ringing the bell for
the servant. He has forgotten the
fact of his marriage and sends a ser-
vant to discover who is creating all
the disturbance. Howeve, by means
of her fine cooking and winning ways,
the "Professor" succeeds in winning
her husband's affections and tearing
him away from his beloved books.
Finally she induces him to go on a
No admission will be charged for
the play. The play is only one of a
series of social entertainments given
by the Verein . Immediately after the
play, an informal reception and dance
will be given by the members of the
Verein. Their friends and members
of the German faculty last evening,
Dr. Boucke gave a reception to one of
the women's sections of the Verein at
-his home on Oakland avenue. The
doctor gave an address on the German
newspaper. He stated that while the
German journals did not get news as,
quickly as do the American papers,
yet as a rule they are much more re-

Perhaps no other department in the
activity of the University, is doing a
greater work in furthering Michigan
interests than the Alumni Association,
and, outside of the senior classes, its
services are little known or appreciat-
ed. The function of the Association
is to bind together all Michigan grad-
tates and former students wherever
they may be keeping them in touch
with the University. Michigan has
over 25,000 living graduates and form-
er students, more than anyother Amer-
ican college. A card index of these
names is kept in the Alumni rooms,
giving a record as far as obtainable
of each man since leaving college.
