by President Hutch-
Effinger, chairman
on non-athletic or-

rapidly shaped, if the absence of Di-
rector Bartelme bears at all upon the
subject. For as is his usual custom,
the boss of the teams is sojourning in
the east and again mystery surrounds
his whereabouts. But it is a safe guess
that his mission is one affecting the
winter and spring schedule for the
various teams.
It was expected that the indoor track
dates would be given out this weekI
but the absence of Director Bartelme
may mean their being withheld until
after the Christmas vacation. Al-
though 'nothing is certain it seems
probable that Cornell and Syracuse
will be the two eastern teams to beI
seen in action in the gym this winter.
The meets with them last year were
a great success and there is every reas-
on why they should be repeated. If any
other teams are to appear here that
fact has been kept a secret.
It is also probable that the trip of
the director has more or less to do
with the baseball schedule. It is knownj
that the eastern trip this year will bej
more or less of a big one and games
have been planned with nearly all of
the eastern colleges. As the booking'
of dates for this trip requires consid-
erable work and prearrangement the
;iourney is probably to do this work.
At all events, the athletic world is at
present extremely quiet and there
promises to be little doing until after
vacation. In the meantime the sched,
ules must remain a secret until the
return of Director Bartelme from his
mysterious jaunt.

yesterday afternoon, a University of
Michigan Equal Suffrage club was or-
ganized. The moment Mrs French
ceased speaking, some one rose and
made the motion that resulted in the
founding of the club. It will be com-
posed of both men and women. The fol-
lowing officers were elected: Mrs. A. S.
Warthin, president; Mrs. V. C. Vaugh-
an, vice-president; Mrs. J. P. Tatlock,
secretary, and Mrs. J. E. Reighard,
treasurer. A board of directors, com-
posed of ten members, and including
both men and women will be chosen
Mrs. French, who is the wife of Dr.
H. C. French, '65 M, spoke under the
auspices of the college suffrage com-
mittee. She told of her 'work among
the working girls of San Francisco and
said that she was inevitably dragged
into the suffrage work owing to the
fact that she was unable to get any fa-
vorable legislation until she had se-
cured the vote.
Mrs. French will speak before the
Ann Arbor Women's club this after-
noon at 2:30. All women are invited.
Mrs. French is accompanied by Mrs.
Huntley Russell of Grand Rapids who
is doing all she can to forward thej
equal suffrage cause. Both women are,
being entertained at the Alpha Phi
The Women's League hopes to have
Mrs. French here some Friday in Jan-

George McKay, Captain of Militia, Asks
Authorities for Machine.
George W. McKay, '12 dent and cap-
tain of Company A, Michigan State Sig-
nal Corps stationed at Ypsilanti, who
recently received the first aviation li-
cense ever granted to a National Guard
officer, has applied to the state military
commission for the purchase of a Ble-
riot monoplane.
Some time ago, McKay, in a letter to
Governor Osborn, made known his re-
quest for a flying machine to be used
in connection with the national guard
maneuvers. In reply, the governor fa-
vored the idea, and stated that he
would lend his support in the matter.
At the meeting of the military commis
sion in Pontiac last week, McKay was
present and submitted his plan. He
asked that the authorities purchase a
Bleriot monoplane, and the commission
agreed to consider the question. A
flying machine of this type costs about
$6,000.00 without accessories, and for
this reason the committee did not pass
on the matter. They were, however, of
the opinion that such an addition to the
militia would be advantageous, yet
they could not give a final answer on
account of the high cost of the ma-
"I think that we will have a mono-
plane in the militia soon," stated Mc- V
Kay yesterday. "It is just a matter of
time when sufficient funds can be se-
cured for the purchase of a machine.
We led all other state guardsmen an
the perfection of a signal corps, and I
most certainly believe that we shall
lead them in aviation."
