State Street MIerchant Is Handed a
Spurious Check Yesterday.
Working the same old game in the
same old way, an unknown man, sign-
ing himself Van Dippen, passed a
c check on a prominent State street book
merchant yesterday afternoon in the
n name of some imaginary Lucas. The
t check was for only a small amount, but
the signer, who palmed himself off on
the merchant as a student, is said to
have repeated the process several
times in a checkered narch to the de-
pot. No hint as to his identity has as
yet been discovered, and as most of the
State street men have not received
their checks back from the clearing
e house, the extent of his depradations
can only be conjectured. The occur-
rence was received as news in the po-
lice office, but the sheriff said that such
a proceeding was about due.
r Dean M. E. Cooley, of the engineer-
a ing department, left yesterday evening

regular monthly meeting of the Block

interclass bsakebtall series, or put a
team in the field representing the de-
partment as a whole, is a question
which came up before a recent meet-
ing of the managers, and which will
probably go to the Board of Directors
of the Athl etic Association at a meet-
Ing today.
The medics have asked Interclass
Manager Anderson to allow a denart-
ment team to be entered, which will
compete with the pharmics, homeops
and dents in the preliminary games.
The facts that senior medics find it im-
possible to turn out,'and that there are
only about 180 men eligible in the
other departments are cited as reasons
for the request. It is also urged that
the winning of basketball numerals in
the Medic department has in other
years -been a mere matter of forfeiture
and that under the proposed scheme,
the players would at least have to earn
their letters by getting into the semi-
Opposed to the arguments are the
considerations that the junior medics
can organize a fast team without go-
ing outside the class, while there is al-
so some first class material in the
freshman class. The opposition argues
that a combined medic team represent-
ing the whole department would be too
fast an organization for the other class
teams to meet.
Men Now Eligible Will Probably Not
Play Because of Danger to
Amateur Standing.
According to a statement of Director
Bartelme, it is extremely improbable
that the "Gridiron Basketball five" will
comprise men who are yet eligible for
the Varsity football team. Though the
team composed of wearers of the Mich-
igan football "M" was to play with a
purely amateur rating, it is understood
that it is against rulings for Varsity
players to participate, inasmuch as
their amateur standing might be affect-
ed, and the Board in Control does not
wish to take any chances.
This decision will prevent Paterson,
Torbet, Pontius, Quinn and Thomson
from participating in activities of the
"Gridiron five," and will naturally tend
to weaken that organization, inasmuch
as a number of these men are star bas-
keteers. It is understood, however,
that a team will still get into the field
which will be composed of men who
are ineligible for further football com-
petition. One composed of "Stan"
Well, "Honk" Conklin, "Stan" Bor-
leske, "Bill" Edmunds, "Andy" Smith,
and "Hi" Cole, is talked of.
Frank Picard, who is acting as man-
ager of the team, has received wor
from Toledo stating that a game has
been arranged with Overland Tech fox
February 23, at Toledo. The Universi-
ty of Cincinnati schedule is pretty web
filled, but that institution is trying to
arrange to entertain the ex-Michigan
football players.
