Michigan Coach Believes That
New Regulations Benefit
Lighter Teams

Neither the senior nor the fresh law
classes will be represented by the ac-
customed official pages in the 1912
Michiganensian. This was the final
decision of the Board in Control of Stu-
dent Pubications after listening yes-
terday afternoon to the petitions of
the two classes interested.
"It is an outrage,-a rank injustice,"
said a prominent senior law last night
in referring to the Board's action. "We
don't have to depend o the Michigan-
ensian; we can get out a separate an-
nual and not be grouped with the en-
gineers or the pharmics, or anyone
"We consider the whole matter an
unfortunate one," said the Michigan-
ensian management." We regret that
the laws failed to comply with the rul-
ing. of the Board, the enforcement of
,which is absolutely necessary if the
book is to be published at an early
The action of the board cuts out of
the senior law section the pictures of
the class officers, the class teams, and
the page of committees. The history
of the class, with the senior statistics,
will be run as in previous years with
the individual senior pictures.
An indication of the awakening cam-
pus interest in national politics comes
in the rejuvenation of the Uiiversity
of Michigan Republican club which
will hold its first meeting of the season
in McMillan hall tomorrow evening;
The club was active during the state
campaign In the first semester of the
past school year and is reviving to
take a hand in the presidential.fight.
President Miner having been gradu-
ated the coming meeting is being call-
ed by W. K. Towers, corresponding
secretary of the club, and the only of-
ficer now In school.
Membership in the organization is
open to all Republicans. The selec-
tion of a preferred presidential candi-
date will be delayed until the attitude
* of the personnel of the organization
can be determined. The meeting will
be called to order at 7:30.
Machine May Be Mounted on Mono-
plane to be Constructed Later
A.new gasoline motor for use in avi-
ation work has been received by the
Aeronautical society. The motor was
constructed by the Detroit Aviation
Co., and is of the quadruple opposed
type, having eight cylinders. It will be
thoroughly tested out in the mechani-
cal laboratory of the engineering de-
. partment before it is put to any prac-
tical employment.
. It had been intended to equip the
- glider, recently built by the Aeronau-
tical society, with the new motor, but
this has since been deemed inadvisable.
As a result, the motor will probably
r be installed in a monoplane which the
society hopes to construct sometime in
the future.
On account of the late zero weather
and the lack of time incident to resum-
ing studies, the long-heralded glider
has been left in more than its wonted
peace for almost a month. Bird-like
activities will be resumed, however,
- with the advent of warmer weather
and the arrival of a par-essential east

Committee to be Appointed to
Boost Idea of Hospital
For Students


A powerful exponent in favor of the
establishment of the proposed infirm-
ary for university students has appear-
ed in the form of the Michigan Union.
Official action was taken by the board
of directors at the meeting held yester-
day morning. President "Mat." Blish'
was authorized to appoint a committtee
to work for the establishment of the
institution. Professor Tilley, who has
worked for the scheme for a number
of years, was the first committeemv%
named. The remaining members will
be appointed and announced within the
next few days.
The constitution of the Opera club
was accepted with a few changes and
the date of production of the annual'
Michigan Union opera was changed
from the first semester to the second.
The definite date will be decided upon
by the Opera club after its organiza-
tion has been made complete. Seven
charter members were named and they
will elect the remaining members of
the club. A meeting of the charter
members has been called for Monday
evening at the Union clubhouse and it
is probable that the elections will oc-
.cur at this time. The following men
were made charter members: Matthew
Blish, Homer Heath, John Cox, Earl
Moore, Carlisle Ferguson, Philip
Fletcher and Francis Riordan.
Because of a recent state statute de-
creeing that the grade and high schools
of Michigan shall cease the observance
of Washington's birthday, in as far as
closing for the day is concerned, there
are current rumors afloat to the effect
that the university will also hold open
shop on that day. The statute does
not, however, apply to the higher- in-
stitutions of learning in the state and
Thursday of this week will be observ-
ed as usual by the cessation of all,
Many Attend Deutscher Verein Dance.
Over fifty couples attended the an-
nual dance of the Deutscher Verein In
Barbour gymnasium, last night. The
Academy orchestra furnished the mu-
sic for the dancing which lasted until
11:30. Prof. and Mrs. J. A. C. Hildner,
and Dr. and Mrs. H. C. Thurnau were
the chaperones.
Wilson Club Meets Tomorrow.
H. 0. Hulbert, president of the Wil-
son club, has called a meeting of stu-
dents who are interested in the candi-
dacy of Woodrow Wilson at the Union
at 4:30, Monday afternoon. Plans will
be discussed and Wilson literature will

Coach Fielding H. Yost of the Mich-
igan football team has nothing but
praise for the changes in the code of
football rules as drawn up by the Rul-
es Committee at its recent session.
Contrary to a number of expressed
opinions, the coach does not believe
that the changes will tend to work
against light, speedy teams, nor does
he believe that play will revert to the
old line smashing style of game.'
'After careful consideration of. the
new code, I do not see that a rule was
added or changed by the Rules Com-
mittee that will not be for the better-
ment of the game," writes Yost from
Rock Island, Tenn.
'These changes, as I view them, will
not work against lighter and smaller
teams of ability. The granting of four
downs, and the right to make a' for-
ward pass for any distance and for
ten yards in goal, have given the light
fast team a far better chance to win
upon its merits than this team ever
had under the previous rules. Under'
the old regulations it was almost im-
possible for a light team to gain con-
sistently by rushing the ball, and so it
was forced almost entirely to open
field work. Heavier and stronger
teams, finding a close defense unneces-
sary, were able to shift back and thus
block this open field play easily. A
light team has every chance to gain
ground that it ever had, with several
other chances added, and so its oppor-
tunity of scoring must of necessity
be greatly increased.
"There is no reason to fear any re-
turn to the old pushing, smashing game
as long as the rules require seven men
on the line of scrimmage when the
ball is put in play and where the run-
ner cannot be in any way assisted by
his teammates. I would like to see a
play devised, with these two require-
ments of the -rule in force, that would
in any way imitate the old mass play."

In answer to the question put to all
the artists who appear on the Choral
Union course, "Who is your favorite
composer?" Josef Lhevinne, the pianist
who won such an ovation Friday night,
answered: "It is hard for me to name.
any one favorite. Sometimes I like
Schumann the best; then again, Chop-
in, or Schubert, or Beethoven."
Although he would not say which
one pe liked the best, Lhevinne spoke'
with particular warmth of Beethoven,
and then Schumann. Without an excep-
tion, Mme. Gadski, Maud Powell, and
Mme. de Pasquali, have all handed the
palm to Beethoven. Of the modern
composers, Lhevinne stated that he
liked Rubenstein the best.
