mass meeting of the Women's Athlet-

was the first meeting of this nature
ever held by the association, and prov-

The principal speakers were Miss

both explaining and outlining the ac-

were given by Miss Woodhouse, Pres-

over 20 Polish students at their res-
idence, Saturday evening. Eleven c

ary society of 1910-11 were present,
the remainder of the guests being new
The increase in the membership of
the Polonial society is due chiefily to
the efforts of a committee of three
Detroiters which was appointed in
June of this year for the purpose of
conducting a campaign to establish a
Polish educational center at the Uni-
versity of Michigan. The Polish press
of the country supported the move-
ment inaugurated by the committee by
printing a series of circulars ,which
were sent to all the Polish weekly and
daily newspapers.
The officers for the ensuing year
are: Francis Dombrowski, president;
Ladislaus Garsztecki, vice-president;
Adolph Blecki, secretary; Andrew
Sambor, treasurer; and Simon A.
Walkowiak, librarian.

Arrangements for the special train
which is to take Wolverine rooters to
Lansing for the Michigan-M. A. C.
game, have been completed. The train
will leave the Michigan Central sta-
tion at 8:45, and returning will leave
Lansing at 7:30. The railroad fare
is $1.
Of special interest to Michigan stu-
dents is the price of admission to the
game. The general admission fee is
$1 which gives standing room privi-
leges along the side lines. Granid
stand seats between the 30 yard lines
will bring $1.75, while $1.50 will be
charged for all other grand stand
Director Bartelme was in recent tel-

Tag Day Proves Big Success.
To enroll every college girl is; the
ambition of the Woman's League par-
tially realized as a result of yester-
day's sale of tags. Nearly 600 women
have already joined the League and it
is hoped that practically all of the re-
maining 200 women in school can be
induced to enroll, before this evening.
"This year's membership campaign
has been unusually successful,' said
Miss DeLano, chairman of the Wom-
en's League membership committee,
when interviewed yesterday afternoon.
"Our enrollment to date is nearly as
large as that of all last year."
University to be Inspected.

Walter Russell, of Detroit, and Mr.
Mauch of Hillsdale College, compris-
ing the State Board of Visitors, will
arrive tomorrow for the purpose of-o
inspecting the University with Pres-
ident Hutchins. This board is ap-

The total registration in the univer-
sity reached 4675 yesterday afternooon,
a gain of 101 over last year at this
time. The enrollment of students is
still continuing in all. departments.
Substantial gains are reported from
nearly every department. The literary
shows the largest increase with 157,
the engineering next with 39, grad-
uate school shows 19 more students,
homeopathic.10 and the dental depart-
ment 7. The pharmic department has
the same number enrolled as last year
at this time.
Two departments show a loss, the
medic leading with a decrease of 72
due to the increase entrance require-
ments that took effect two years ago.
There are 59 less number of law stu-
dents in the university than last year.
.The cause is attributed to the rais-

Damaged Safe Is Repaired.

by yeggs last Wednesday morning, has
been replaced by one formerly used in
the First National Bank. Nitroglyc-

the door to such an extent that it could
not be repaired.

A. A. Klein, '11, Gets Good Position.
A. Albert Klein, who graduated in
the June class of 1911, has been ap-
pointed petographer to the United
States bureau of standards with his
headquarters at Pittsburgh. He will
apply the petographical optical meth-
ods to the study of cement.
While here, Klein was an assistant
in the minerology department for
three years, but was perhaps better
known as the manager of the Univer-
sity band for last year.
Recently the University of Kansas
organized a debating league among
the high scholls of the state. The

"College Inn," Old Soph Headquarters
is Dismantled.
Liberty street does not let its pride
run rampant over other city highways
these days. Into the land from which
there is no return has gone its great-
est claim to fame for along with the
old days has departed the most char-
acteristic landmark of those same
days. Old College Inn is no more.
Time was when College Inn featured
the opening of every new year. From
its four small walls radiated the pick-
et lines of the mighty sophomore class.
Into those four walls emptied the
soph drag-net. Liberty street was

higher up on the ladder of classes'
must he show respect; that the tradi-
tions- of a university are many; that
a freshman is a freshman until his
cap has been licked by the flames of
a certain annual fire. Such were the
old days.
Now dismantled foundations and de-
bris mark the place where the school-
ing was once administered. A huge
tank-once a receptacle for those
whose training must needs be accom-
panied by a plunge into water tem-
pered by cold October nights--weath-

listlessly on the ground. And he
whose memory dates back to the time
when the mere mention of College Inn
brought fear and trembling to his very
heart and soul, sighs at the desolation.
