VOL. XIII. ANN ARBOR, MICH., FRIDAY, MARCH 6, 1903 No. 114
FRESHMEN ARE LUCKY
1906 Engineers Drew the Bye in the
Relay Championship-Senior Lits
vs. Junior Laws at the
Probably the event of greatest in-
terest in the track team situation yes-
terday was the drawings to determine
the remaining schedule for the three
relay teams still in the interclass
championship. This took place at 5
o'clock in Trainer Fitzpatrick's office
and resulted in the freshman engi-
neers drawing the much coveted "bye."
This means that the senior its and
the junior laws will run their race
as the closing feature of the 'Varsity
meet tomorrow night. Then the win-
ning team will run in the finals against
the engineers at the Illinois meet a
week from Saturday to determine the
class relay championship of the Uni-
versity. The championship has been
held for the last two years by the 1903
its, and naturally therefore they are
looked upon as having a posible ad-
vantage on the ground of experience
in picking up.
In some respects the result of the
drawing is somewhat unfortunate as
it allows the fresh engineers to com-
pete in the finals after having won
but one race. Tthis was in the first
set of prliminaries when they drew
iand defeated the fresh medic team.
In the fraces last Saturday, the engi-
neers were to run against the homeops
but as two of the members of the
engineering team had been in the
meet with D. U. S. and were pretty
well exhausted Trainer Fitzpatrick re-
quested the homeops to wait until
Wednesday to run off the race. This
was consented to and later the
homeops forfeited. So by drawing the
bye yesterday the engineers will have
done the unusual thing of winning
their way, to the finals without run-
ning a single hard race. However,
they are a fast team and as they are
practicing assiduously on the pick-ups
they will undoubtedly give the team
winning tomorrow night a brad fight
for the champonship.
James Nufer's leg is improving and
be will leave tonight for Milwaukee
to compete for the First Regiment of
Chicago in the big amateur athletic
meet on Saturday night. He will wear
rubber bandages on the injured mem-
The entries for the 'Varsity meet
closed last night and although they
are comparatively few in number this
will be an advantage rather than
otherwise, as the good men will be
less interfered with by numbers than
has heretofore been the case this sea-

season. McAllister will remain until

Roach, the regular coach, will arrive
and take the mnen in band.
Captain Utley, vwhen asked aboutt
the prosepects, stated that although it
is too early to hazard mch the
chances are far brighter than they
were last year at this time, and it
is easy to see that he entertains strong
hopes for a victorious season on thee
Gradually the squad is being cutS
down and at present only forty-five

'03 Medic Party Tonight
Tonight the senor medics will give
one of the most brilliant class parties
attempted this year. The affair will
occur in Barbour gymnasium, which
will be prepared In unusually good
shape for the event. The floor will
receive particular attention, as this
has been one of the drawbacks in the
past to successful functions there.
Finney's well-known orchestra of De-
troit will furnish the music. Dancing
will be begun at S o'clock promptly,
owing to the rules of the gymnasium.
Forty-Fourth Annual Banquet
The Webster Literary Society of the
law department has completed all
preparations for their annual banquet,
which will be held tomorrow night
at the Oyster Bay, corner of Maynard
and William streets. Each year the
society celebrates its anniversary by
giving a banquet, and if the success
of this, the forty-fourth, is in propor-
tiotn to the efforts which have been
sspent in its preparation, there need be
no fear for the successful passing off
of tomorrow evening.
A very interesting toast program has
been made up, and a good attendance
is expected. Representative members
of the society will respond to toasts
and the combination of good talk and
good food ought to prove a most happy
Mr. McCullough, of the James F.
McCullough Teachers' Agency, of
Chicago, Ill., will be at the Cook
House today from 10 a. m. to 9 p. m.
Students of the University desiring
positions to teach are cordially invited
to call and see him.

The inter-class meet for the girls
of Barbour gymnasium is now an as-
sured fact and will take place iarch
2t. Since this anouncement great
enthusiasm has prevailed among thee
gorls, and many who had ceased at-
teuding "gym" have now taken it up
again with renewed vigor. Many
events which are regular features of
the men's meets will be embodied in
the program,' but obtrusive male eyes
will not protrude from their sockets
at ite sight of well-beloved records
going by the board; no, no, the men
will ot be there but they can read of
hurdles and relays in the next morn-
As now arranged, the program will
include dashes, apparatus work, hur-
dies, jumping, ball throwing, natt

Paul Dickey, the freshman from
South Division high school, Chicago,
who played sub half back on the
'Varsity football team last fall, and
whose work thus far in the indoor
track meets stamps him as one of the
most promising all around athletes
in the University, is now seriously ill.
The trouble is diagnosed as an ab-
cess on the kidneys and he will be
taken to the University hospital today
where he will probably undergo an
operation. While it is not thought
that the illness will prove fatal, he
will in all probability be laid up for
a long time and it is hardly possible
that he will be able to do any more
athletic work this season.

The U. of M. Daily will be de-
livered for balance of school year
for $1.00. Leave orders at office

The two students, Horace Edmunds
and Clifford Stevenson, were released
from their continement Wednesday
morning after their rooms, clothes and
books had been thoroughly fumigated.
They were not exposed to the small-
pox, but being in the same house
with the unfortunate it was deemed
necessary to keep them shut up for
two days for policy's sake.

University at Washington, D. C.
-Year's Leave of Absence
Prof. A. C. McLaughlin will go to
Washington, D.. C., on the faculty of
the new National University there, the
institution endowed by the Carnegie

head of the history department of the
new post graduate university. .,

to assume his new duties. He will
move his family to Washington, D. C.,
It is hoped for the good of the Uni-

may return at the conclusion of his
year's leave of absence.
