Saturday to Pick Representatices
Against Notre Dame.
On Saturday afternoon and evening
occurs the 'Varsity indoor meet which
promises to e a record breaker not
only in the times and distances mae
in the various events but in the point
of attendance. In point of number of
quarter of a mile adds new interest.
The running off of the semi-finals
in the relay races retains the interest
of all, none the less because the
teams will continue to wear the colors
of the various sororities with which
they entered the preliminaries in this
championship 'series alt the Freon.
Soph. meet two weeks ago. The
teams that are to fight for the entries
in the meet will be perhaps nothing
better than that of last year but in the
ability of the men entered there has
never been its equal. With Westfall,
Leiblee, Gardner, Breitenbach, Teetzel
and others entered in the dashes, and
McLean, Hartsburg and Bjork in the
hurdles these events are bound to be
hotly contested. The introduction of
the three quarter mile run and the
lengthening of the walk to Woree places
in the final contest to be run off at
the Notre Dame Meet, a week from
tomorrow night, are 1900 lit for Gam-
ma Phi Beta, 1902 lit, for Collegiate
Sorosis, 1900 law, for Kappa Kappa
Gamma, and n03 medic for Pi Beta
The outcome of this meet will do
cide largely who will represent Mich-
igan at the meet with Notre Dame,
the only dual meet that is a certainty
this season. The contest for places
on the 'Varsity track team will thus
open much earlier in the season than
is ordinarily the case. For this reason
thse men are all in much better condi-
tion than they usually are at the an-
nual 'Varsity meet and as a couse-
quence-competition will be much
The use of ropes to mark off the
courses in the dash will be done away
with as the lanes have been marked on
the floor. So a runner may overstep
his bounds, and be disqualified, merely,
while in the ast he has run the risk
of running foul of tue rope and be-
coming dangerously entangled. The
Washtenaw imes band will ac on
hand in the evening to liven up mat-
ters in the way of music.
The afternoon events will be those
of the boxing, wrestling and fencing
and, from the number of entries in
each of these, the bouts will be plenty
and from the talent among the men
they will be closely contested.
New Courses in Higher Commercial-
ism will be Opened Next Fal.
Prof. Adams, of the political econ-
omy department of the University, an-
nounces today that arrangements have
been completed whereby the much-
talked of course in higher commercial-
ism will be introuced into the Univer-
sity curriculum. All details have been
practica 1y attended to and the "an-
nouncement" stating the nature and
scope of the new course will be in
print in about six weeks.
The innovation will be made at tae
opening of the fall term. Two new
chairs will be created in the University
faculty-that of professor in municipal
jurisprudence and that of professor in
higher commercialism and economic
geography. No appointments have yet
been made.
The course will not be entirely an
innovation, but will be founded on
