Interscholastic Management Of-
fers Prizes Donated by Organ-
izations--Good Meet Assured.
Preparations for the thirteenth an-
nual Interscholastic track meet, to be
held at Ferry Field May 20 and 21, are
almost completed. From present indi-
cations the meet will be the most suc-
cessful that has ever been held at Ann
A new feature of the meet and one
that will undoubtedly attract a large
number of high schools is the offering
of cups to winners in various depart-
ments of the contests. In all, eight cups
have been given by local organizations
and by outside people who are interested
in the meet.
Special entertainment has as usual
been provided for the visitors. The
members of the various track teams will
be put up at the fraternity houses and
will be given an opportunity to witness
one of the most interesting of campus
functions, cap night, as well as other en-
tertainments for which arangements
have already been made.
Interscholastic Manager Wilson is es-
pecially optimistic as to the success of
the meet. He considers the offering of
the cups as one of the biggest drawing
cards and feels certain that the attrac-
tions will prove irresistible to the high
school athletes. The plan to offer cups
was inaugurated by Sphinx and Triang-
les who will give cups, one to go to
the individual point winner and the
other to the man who wins the second
largest number of points.
Sid Millard has contributed an es-
pecially large and beautiful loving cup
to become the permanent possession of
the team which wins the meet for three
years. Michigamua have offered a cup
to the team which wins the meet this
year. The Druid cup will go to the
team which wins the greatest number
of points in the field events and the
Vulcan cup will be given to the team
having the largest score from winning
points on the track. Mr. Herpolseim-
er of Grand Rapids, will give a cup to
the team winning the relay and Mr.
Arnold of Ann Arbor, offers a cup to
the team having the second highest
number of points. In addition to these
trophies the teams will strive for the
large silk banner which is annually offer-
ed by the Athletic Association to the
winning team.
The only new rule made for inter-
scholastic athletics by the Schoolmasters'
clu, was a modification of an old rule.
The new ruling reads as follows: "Any
student who has used or is using his
athletic skill or knowledge of athletics
for gain, or who has competed on any
college team or has played with or
against professional teams or who has
competed under an assumed name, shall
be ineligible for any interscholastic
event." This ruling cuts out the clause,
"Or who has unknowingly competed
with professional athletes."
Friday night, after the preliminaries
of the Interscholastic have been run off
will come the annual freshman Cap
Night. This affair has always aroused
considerable interest among the high
school athletes. Saturday the Glee clubh
and hand will give a joint concert andI
Saturday night there will be an enter-
tainment at the high school. Michi-
gasnua and Sphinx will entertain inu
their rooms for the winning team, in
the evening.
As usual the Interscholastic will take
two days before it is completed. Friday
afternoon the preliminaries in the track

events will be run off and Saturday
morning the finals in all events will
ibe held.

that traces of heredity are carried
through several generations. Dr. God-
dard gave several personal cases of the
had effect of marriage between weak
minded persons and alcoholics, stating
that the off-spring were invariably weak
minded. Dr. Goddard declared that
inter-marriage between feeble minded
persons should be generally prohibited
by statute, as some states have already,
done. "In every school of Soo or more
students there are enough weals minded
children" he said, "to necessitate the
forming of a special class for their
sspecial instruction. But better still, if
the i5,ooo feeble minded people in the
United States could be kept in institu-
tions, inter-marriage would be impos-
sible and so the number would gradually
be reduced. At the present time only
one out of every ten weak minded per-
sons is confined in institutions."

President Talks to Former Students

President Hutchins returned Thurs-
day from an extended trip east where
he has been in the interest of the univer-
sity. Michigan alumni gathered in New
York and Boston to greet the president
and hold social gatherings.
Friday evening, March 25, Prof. Hut-
chins addressed the alumni of New
York who gathered in the metropolis for
an elaborate banquet. The subject of his
address was "The present conditions and
needs of the University of Michigan."
The alumini of New England held
their annual banquet in Boston Tues-
day, March 29. At this function the
president as well as a few prominent
alumni spoke. Among the well known
speakers were Miss Coman, '78, now
an instructor at Wellesly, Prof. Dixon,
professor of economics at Dartmouth,
and Prof. Paul Hanus who ]leads the
department of education at Harvard.
The subject of Prof. Dixon's talk was,

Adolphus, the bull dog belonging to
the Beta Theta Pi fraternity, met his
match in the canine kingdom yesterday
and in the efforts to save Adolphus from
an untimely end one of the members of
the fraternity was badly injured. Adol-
phus has a feid of long standing with
Mike another bull pup who lives around
the corner. Several times recently the
dogs have met with the result that Adol-
phus has come back with portions of his
anatomy missing.
Friday morning the clogs mixed again
and Mike had secured a strangle hold on
Adolphus when his owners came to his
rescue. One of the boys was endeavor-
ing to pass a belt around Mike's neck
with the intention of choking him off
when Adolphus seized the hand of his
rescuer. In his efforts to free himself
both of his hands were badly torn.
He was assisted to a nearby house where
his wounds were dressed. The muscles
and tendons of the right thumb were
badly torn and two fingers on the other
hand bitten through to the bone. No
serious complications are expected how-

ably played by O. E. Fueiber whose
enunciation of the German was partic-
ularly excellent. The austerity and de-
votion to duty of the physician as well
as his real kindliness were made forcible
and reasonable by his interpretation.
Stephen J. Hebeler in the part of
Griesinger, the kindhearted old merch-
ant whose family troubles make up the
story of the play was very entertaining.
His German was fluent and easy and he
seemed to have caught the true cheer-
ful goodheartedness of the character.
In the third act where he was supposed
to fie slightly under the influence of his
too convival entertasinment te was funny
without being gross.
Miss Elfrieda Weitz who has played
prominent roles in the German plays of
the past two seasons took the part of
Julie, Griesinger's daughter. No op-
portunity was given her to share to
any extent in the fun of.the story but
she played her rather colorless part with
sympathy and ability. She was particu-
larly good in the first act and in the
third where she discovers that the hus-
band upon whom she has been doting

Marianne by Miss Ida Sitler and Kol-
mar by Johannes Siveke were well play-
ed minor parts.
It was particularly noticeable that
many of the best points in the acting
of the whole cast were the result of the
careful and well planned coaching of
Dr. A. O. Lee, the faculty director.
As a production Doktor Klaus lacked
a little in finish but was as well balanced
and enjoyable as any play given in a
foreign language during the past four
or five years. The playing of an adagio
quartet in the third act added to the
excellence and completeness of the pro-
duction. The quartet was rendered by
B. de Vries, George L. Curtis, J.
Schaeberle, and Henri i-us.
The audience was made up largely of
faculty representatives with a few
townspeople. President Angell and dis-
tinguished visitors from among the edu-
cators in town from the Schoolmasters'
club were present.
The senior class of the University of
Minnesota has voted unanimously for a
senior student council. It is up to the
faculty now.
