Will Decide Who Makes Team for
the Illinois Meet-Maddock and

Of the pistol at the A. A. U. meet
at Milwaukee, Michigan's star per-
formers on the track are steadily
grinding away at their respective
"Stunts" with the immediate purpose
Of making a creditable showing in the
meet on Saturday night. The work is
bringing out all the candidates and
although nothing extraordinary is ex-
peeted, yet everything at the present
time promises a very close and ex-
citing time. The fact that the team
to compete against Illinois will be
limited to ten men is adding to the
rivariy among the candidates. These
ten men must represent Mihigan as
a well-balanced team. It means that
only first and second places will be
counted, and as the number of events
will not be lessened every man will
be expected to take part in several
events. The entries for the meet will
close at six o'clock today.
The homeop relay team having
thrown up the sponge to the '0 engi-
neers, there remains in the race three
teams, '03 lits, '04 laws and '06 engi-
neers. The drawings will take place
today to select the teams which will
run in the semi-finals on Saturday
night. The team drawing the "bye"
will run in the final at the Illinoisi
meet. As the ranks of the '04 laws
and '03 lits are somewhat depleted by
colds and the grip, it will make the
result even more uncertain.
In the practice today Brewer, '04
engineer, jumped 5 feet i1 inches, and
Maddock pushed the shot 40 feet 8
Inches in the basement of the "gym."
Kellogg and Robinson are at present
tunder the influence of colds. Kellogg
is not expected to run on Saturday
night. Win Miller, who was entered
in the hurdles and the half mile,
has sprained his back very badly and
will not be able to compete.
The management is at present con-
sidering a proposition which, if en-
tered upon, will mark a new stage in
Michigan's indoor athletics. It is pro-
posed to substitute for the inter-class
an inter-scholastic meet, which will
be open to all the high schools of this
and adjoining states. the schools
whith are expected to send the largest
representations are the Detroit Uni-
verity School, Detroit Central High,
Ann Arbor and the Toledo high school.
The other schools will be invited also
and would 'probably respond with fair-
ly sized quotas.
As there Is only one opportunity
afforded te -high schools of compet-
ing against each other, this plan, if
adopted, would almost immediately be
welcomed by the high school athletes.
It would bring the high schools into

Republical Club Election
The annua election of officers for
the University Republican Club will
be held Saturday morning at 9 o'clock
in Y. M. C. A. hall. At present only
one ticket has made its appearance,
but opposition is sure to develop in
true political fashion, and a warm
ontest will doubtless result. Follow-
ing is the ticket.
For President-Jas. C. Byers, '04 L.

Only those who have registered will
be eligible to vote. The registration

will be open from now until the time

To Build Fraternity Houses
The proposition of President Harper
to provide at the expense of the Univer-
sity, a fraternity settlement located
near the campus, and to build houses
for the various fraternities, is exit-
ing no small amount of comment and
discussion at the Midway school, as
well as in other college circles. The
following article is the comment of the
laily Maroon upon the situation:
The one topic of conversation this
week among all University students
is President Iiarper's proposed plan
of providing permanent houses for
all the fraternities in college. Every
one seems to recognize clearly that,
as President Harper himself stated
last Thursday, this is generally con-
sidered to be the most vital question
ever brought before the students.
Since the meeting of Thursday,
much discussion has taken place on
the matter among all the fraternity
men and nearly every shiapter here
has met to discuss in detail the mat-
ter as understood at present. The
detiled discussion in the chapter
houses and on the campus has
brought out a series of questions; all
of which seem to be important to
the men proposing them, which will
be asked of the president at the
committee meeting of one man from
each chapter, to be called soon.
Some of the more important ques-
tions asked and considered by the
men are:
Would the plan of taking meals at
the Commons destroy fraternity life
as it exists today?
Would the University make the fra-
ternities the same proposition, elimi-
nating the Commons feature?
Is the idea of crowding all the fra-
ternities into the same block the best
possible solution of the problem of
Would University life really be en-
hanced by bringing the fraternities
close to the campus?
For how long would the leases be?
Could some arrangement be made
whereby the fraternities would own
their houses eventually?
What would be the method of choos-
ing location? Which fraternity would
have first choice?
What would be the rent on the
What provision will be made for
fraernities which may be' founded
here after houses are erected?
For what consideration would the
University provide light and heat?
Will the fact that the chapter houses
are on the University's property cause
more stringent house rules to be en-
Would not the chapter houses be-
come mere dormitories in the course
of a few years?
Is the plan as proposed not the best
possible for fostering true University
and universal spirit among all the
The above are perhaps the most
important which the fraternities have
found to ask, but others will in all
probability be-developed in the
course of two weeks.
