TERCLASS BASKETBALL IS
GIVEN BOOST BY MEETING
Dr. J. A. C. Hildner was the guest
of honor at the fourth of a series of
junior lit class dinners held at the
Union last evening. The function evok-
the same enthusiasm as those earlier,
in the series.
Mr. T. T. Yamada gave a brief re-
view of the political relations, past,
and present, between Japan and the
United States. He honored our coun-
try for its attitude during the devel-
opment of the Japanese Empire. In ad-
dition to the .usual program the junior
lit quartette rendered some selections.
VARSITY TO ENTER
Mlle Relav Team Will Compete
Against Cornell and Penn
on March 9
TEAM PERSONNEL IS QUESTION.
Michigan will send a'*mile relay team
to the games of the Pittsburg Athletic
Club, to be held March 9 in the Smoky
city. At least such are the present
plans of the authorities, and it seems
probable that they will be carried out.
There will be two other colleges, Penn-
sylvania and Cornell, in the one mile,
event, and it promises to be a fight
well worth while between these three
rivals. Michigan will not enter con-
testants in any other event save this
Just who will compose the team that
will be sent is rather hard to forecast-
at this time. The loss of Blake up-
set plans considerably and caused a
general shift in the training of men for
various events, but it is certain that
Gamble and Haff will be on the team,
and that probably Jimmy Craig and
Reck will be the other pair. Craig has
been working on the shorter dashes
and the hurdles but will be trained
for the quarter and should make good
easily. Reck, of course should nego-
tiate the distance in good time while
Gamble and Haff were members of last
year's team. The date of the Pittsburg
meet is the same as the fresh-soph bat-
tle here and only four men will make
Track material is still slow in de-
veloping but things are brightening up
a bit and chances are iu proving. A
new acquisition to the freshman squad:
Tulley, formerly of Wooster Polytech,
is proving a find in the quarter. He al-
so has a football reputation and is re-
puted a star half back. The entries'
for thet preliminary meet next Satur-
day are all in and the number insures
a big program.
DONDINEAU WINS JUNIOR LIT
FINAL ORATORICAL CONTEST
"The Good Life," the first talk in a
series of three, on the phases of life
as seen by the poet Robert Browning,
was given by Prof. Robert M. Wenley
at Harris Hall yesterday afternoon. In
dealing with the subject, Professor'
Wenley said that "The Good Life" for
Browning was not a set of maxims by
whicti one might govern his daily life,
but was a moral gospel, the essence of
which lies in man's desire of attaining
some end or purpose.
A crowd of about two hundred peo-
ple heard the talk. The dates for the
two remaining lectures will be an-
nounced later. '

Council Issues Statement
TO SEAT NEW OFFICERS TUESDAY
Dr. Angell Believes That Senate Will
Name President as His
It is rumored that President Harry
B. Hutchins is soon to be elected a
member of the Board of Regents of the
Smithsonian Institute, to fill the va-
cancy caused by Dr. Angell who re-
signed about a month ago. When in-
terviewed last night President Hutch-
nsi said that he had heard nothing of
the report concerning the probability
of his election. Dr. Angell, however,
seemed to be of the opinion that Pres-
ident Hutchins was likely to be his
Dr. Angell said: "I resigned just re-
cently in order that the Senate might
at its present session elect a succes-
sor. The duties are more pleasant than
onerous. The regents are required to
make one or two trips a year to Wash-
ington, for the meetings. I have found
it a little inconvenient lately, however,
to make the trips."
