According to a current rumor, the
' Ford oratorical testimonials, which
were ionated last year by .Mr. Henry
Ford, of Detroit, have not as yet been
received and in consequence the Ora-
torical Association was forced to bor-.
row the money front a local bank, in
order that the honor debaters be pre-
sented their $50.
Last evening, when interviewed, both
Professors T. C. Trueblood and R. D.
T. Hollister refused either to confirm
or deny the report, and the officers of
the Oratorical Association remained si-
lent, when asked to talk on the sub-
- The Ford testimonials were giv-
en fgr the first time last year, and the
0 ratorical Association had hoped that
Mnr. Ford would repeat the gift this
year. Hitherto, Mr. Dexter M. Ferry,
the donor of Ferry Field, has always
presented the men with $50, but at the
time of his death the annuity ceased,
and Mr. Ford took up the plan. The
giving of testimonials is an old cus-
tom, and almost since the establish-
ment of intercollegisate debating, the
men participating in the contests with
Northwestern and Chicago universities
hive been presented with $50 as a me-
mento of their services in behalf of the
university. ' -

Educators Attend St. Louis Convention
Members of the faculty of the de-
partment of education left Saturday
for St. Louis to attend conventions of
the Association of College Teachers
and of the National Association of Ed-
ucators. Prof. C. o. Davis was unable
to go, and as a result his classes willr
be the only ones to meet in that de-

Soph and fresh lits clashed in the
opening game of the interclass basket-
ball series last evening in Waterman
gym, and the first year men nosed out
their opponents by a score of 38 to 36,
The game was fast and snappy from
the spectators' standpoi'nt, but was
really decided on foul throwing, and
had it not been for the overzealousness
of the sophomores, the result would
have been different.
During the early stages of the first
half, the sophomores led by a few
points, but the team work became de-
moralized and the freshmen had the
advantage when time was called, by
a margin of 18 to 8. In the second
period the sophomores took a brace
and showed some lightning team work,
but when the freshmen came through.
with a basket or two from the field,
the sophs became desperate. Eight
fouls were committed by the sophs
during this period, and Miller, the
freshman who made the free throws
netted the count on each occasion.
As to the field baskets, the sophs led
the first year men by one basket. The
fouls committed during the game num-
bered 12 for each side, but Miller was
more successful in caging the ball on
free throws than was Baker, and the
points counted from fouls were 5 for
the sophs and 10 for the fresh, and it
was just this difference that served to
defeat the sophomores.
Miller, the husky center, was the in-
dividual star of the game for the fresh
and scored 8 field baskets in addition
to his 10 points from free throws. The
fresh team work was built mostly
around the center. For the sophomor-
es, Morse caged the ball 7 times from
the field, but suffered the same as his
team-mates in missing a number of
hard luck chances.
Two games will be staged this even-
ing between the '12 and '13 lits and
the '14 and '15 engineers.

Straw Ballot Returns Indicate
That Voters Come From
Varied Climes
That the university can boast of stu-
dents from all 'states and climes was
evidenced by the recent straw ballot
conducted by The Michigan Daily.
There were voters from nearly every
state in the Union, from South Amer-
ica, from England and from far-off
China. But aside from this geograph-
ical diversity, the results of the elec-
tions in different states brought out
some striking contrasts.
Of course, more votes were cast
from Michigan than from any other
state and Governor Wilson was the fa-
vorite. He had a plurality of some 50
votes over Col. Roosevelt. In the case
of New York, matters were reversed
but Wilson ran quite strong in this
state and had about 35 of his ballots
from there. Illinois was Wilson by a
large majority and Ohio seemed to fa-
vor him also. Roosevelt ran strong
throughout all of the states and 'there
was hardly a one in which he did not
receive a vote.
Strange as it may seem, Taft was
far from a favorite in Ohio. He re-
ceived but eleven votes from that state
and ran much better in Michigan. Debs
was the Michigan candidate but the
Pennsylvania vote was also large for
him. He ran strong in New York too.
Garfield's only vote came from the
Keystone state.
It is unnecessary to state that the
returns are not a certain prophecy,
buu th iy' show what sudents think
about their own states. The college
vote, according to most authorities,
plays but little part in an election ba:.
it is a sort of forecast, of the kind that\
is significant.
The third class dinner of the soph
lits will be held at the Union, Thurs-
day evening, at which time an innova-
tion wil be inaugurated, as the fair
members of the claps will be present.
Professor J. A. C. Hildner and wife
will chaperone the affair, and Presi-
dent Guy Woolfolk will preside as
toastmaster. Miss Phyllis Dunn will
give a solo and piano number, the
soph lit quartet will sing, and short
talks will be given by Miss Margaret
Irving, "Bud" Wilkins, Phil Jansen,
and H. Beach Carpenter.

The faculty axe has fallen,
and hard luck's had its knock,
until our track team's chances
sum down to fiat bed rock.
We've made a name for Michi-
gan, with Yost and pigskin glory,
but when it comes to track
events, they sing a different sto-
ry. They say Ann Arbor's got
no show-the studes all have the
blues; they tremble when you say
Cornell and run at Syracuse.
But why is all this holler about
our doom in track? You fellows
do not mean to say that Michi-
gan won't come back!
When you're feeling like you
had no hope-in life you had no'
aim-just think about one day
last fall-about that Pennsy
game. Right then you'll know
that spirit can help out things a
lot at times, when folks don't
give a cuss for the chance Ann
Arbor's got. Let up now on the
croaking, put the hammer on the
shelf, instead of knocking on the
team, go out for it yourself.

The management has promised a
dance of local color. Every effort will
be made to lend as much of the "Pa-

A special program of strictly French
numbers has been provided by "Ike"
Fischer, and that campus interpreter
of Terpsichorean lyrics, using some
innovations from the French capital,
guarantees a real treat. "The hit of
the evening," says Fischer, "will be
the 'Valse Brune,' a waltz that has had
Paris wild during the last season but
which has not yet been introduced in
this country."

Looking down the clothes line for
next season's styles, our aesthetic fash-
ion reporter has elicited the following
information from the tailoring marts:
The charming lead pencil ,effect of
the English style suits will again be
in evidence, and the wall paper fit will
be in vogue. The smartest tailors have
evolved the idea of slipping a man in-!
to his clothes with a shoe horn, but
other plyers of the needle have hit up-
on the happy thought of painting gar-
ments on prospective customers.
Patterns will range from grave-yard
gray to plutocratic purple, but con-
servative stand-pat shades will also bej

shown. Short coats, snug, cunning lit-
tle coatlets, with low roll lapels dis-
playing high cut vests, are the proper
The Anglicized derby with low
crowns and wide flabby brims, clever-
ly hiding stray ears, is another stay-
ing feature for the ultras. Shoes are
to have the flattest of lasts and taper-
ing vamps-the sort that angry fath-
ers should be kept from wearing. Tan
is the popular shade.

season tickets will be on sale at the

them. To students the price is 50
cents, to others $1.00.
Second Year Engineers Dine Tonight-
George Duffield, as toastmaster, with
the assistance of Alfred Eckert, Albert
Fletcher and Albert Williams will en-
