To the Editor of the Daily:
Frequent mention has been made i
this paper of the "anvil chorus" heard
from the students in reference to the
Athletic Association. In the light of
the proceedings at the meeting of the
Board last Monday evening, it is
strange that the knocking has not re-
sounded fromr one end of the campus
to the other. One of the bills present-
ed calls for $1500 for the erection of
the new bleachers and the improve
ment on the grand stand. Any intel-
ligent contractor could inform the
Board that it paid a very high price for
the job. It is stated that the bleach-
ers are well built structures, and have
been erected with a disregard for ex-
pense. This last statement no one
will doubt, but still the fact remains
an extravagant price must have been
paid for the work done.
Now that the members of the Board
have decided that they need a coach
and tour to travel ts ad from te
games, the expense as usual paid for
by the students who tramp through the
mud, when are the innovations to end?
No doubt next year, our esteemed offi-
cials will desire a special canopied
stand, built for their use or perhaps
two or three lackeys to come at their
beck or call. (In much the same
manner the student body is doing
Another question has presented it-
self to the undergraduates with
marked force during the past season.
What favors does the Athletic associa-
tios give to the students that it does
not allow to any resident of Ann Ar-
bor? The student purchasing a $3
membership ticket in the association,
thinks how good and kind it is until
he discovers that an additional $1.50 is
required to buy the desired season
ticket to the games. But, if this does
not shake his faith, he attends the con-
tests, only to discover that the last and
usually the most interesting game of
the season is barred from him-the
ticket only admits to six games, and
there are seven on the schedule. As
he reaches into his pocket for the re-
maining 50 cents, his respect for the
Athletic Association goes down, down,
down. It is thetsameustory in the
spring. A ticket secured for six
games when seven home games are on
the schedule. A student can see his
'Varsity games no cheaper than any
other person. The following table will
'show that the expense is the same.

And yet complaint is made of the
manner in which the students sup-

Comedy Club Prepares for Work
The University Comedy club has
been busy since the opening of corlege
in reading over various plays, and has
at last succeeded in picking out one
which gives promise of being the best
and most artistic production this or-
ganization has yet attempted. It is an
old Frohman piece and critics all over
the country have commented upon this
play as being one of the best things
ever written for amateur production.
The cast is a large one and as many
of the older members of the club have
left college there is a great deal of
room for new material. Those desir-
ing to secure a place in the cast can
ind out particulars by making appli-
cation by mail to J. G. StandartSigma
