unication condition examinations.

CONFISCATE SELLING DEVICE
AND FINE LOCAL POOL MAN.
Five dollars and costs was the
amount paid in Justice Doty's court
yesterday by the operator of a State
Street Pool Room because the "Punch
Board Candy Seller" confiscated at his
place was considered a gambling de-
vice.
So far as can be ascertained, no oth-
er raffles or quick selling devices are
in use, but the local authorities intend
to drive out any that they find.
Saier to Resume Baseball Activity.
Eddie Saier, '13, prominent candi-
date for the Varsity baseball team in
1911, who broke a small bone in his
hand early in the season and was pre-
vented from playing, will be able to
get out this year. At the time Saier
was advised to let the injury go, but
recently had his hand operated upon,
so that he will be in condition to play.

mphasis will also be laid on the de-

"Most people seem to disregard the
act tbhat there is a history and theory
nderlying gymnastics and very few
re acquainted with its basic princi-
les," said Dr. May yesterday. "It is
y purpose in giving this course to
t the men who are going out to teach

ibject. There is - a demand

ho has this knowledge.as a 'side line'
worth a great deal more to his pro-

ERCLE FRANCAIS TO GIVE
SOIREE DANSANTE TONIGHT
For the fifth time in the history of
ie Cercle Francais, the annual "soiree
ansante" will be given tonight in Bar-
>ur gymnasium. Strictly French se-
ctions will be offered by Fischer's
rchestra. French punch and French
>uvenir programs will be distributed.
It is urged that everyone come unac-
)mpanied. Admission will be by Cer-
e lecture course tickets. Reception
id dancing begin at 8 o'clock.
RANTED LEAVE OF ABSENCE
TO FOLLOW RESEARCH WORK.
Prof. G. Carl Huber, Director of the
istological Laboratory, who was
anted a year's leave of absence by
e Board of Regents, will leave today
r the Wister Anatomical Institute at
hiladelphia. He will devote his time
research work along the lines of
mbryology. Prof. Huber expects to
turn to Ann Arbor for the com-
encement exercises in June.

Definite steps looking towards the
establishment of a system, whereby the
health of the student body will be more
efficiently taken care of by the univer-
sity authorities, were taken yesterday
afternoon by the Infirmary committee,
recently appointed by the Michigan
Union. Immediate action will be tak-
en by the committee to gather data
from practically every university in
the country that has a uniform sys-
tem for giving medical aid to the stu-
dent body.
Prof. M.P. Tilley, one of the members
of the committee, was empowered to
draw up a letter which will be sent to
the other universities asking a num-
her of questions in regard to the sys-
tem used at each school. The ques-
tionaire will be inclusive of all mat-
ters relative to the success, economic
or otherwise, of the institution. The
number of students treated, number of
house visits, office visits and all in-
formation of like nature will be asked
for in the letter. It is likely that the
committee will tabulate the results of,
the various systems, choose the one
best suited to the particular needs of
Michigan and place the results in the
hands of the Board of Regents for a
decision.
An appeal will be made to the stu-
dent body to aid in the gathering of
the information by the committee. Ev-
ery student who has any data in re-
gard to the systems in use in other
places or has had any experience with
systems employed by large industrial
firms is invited to communicate with
the committee at once through the
Michigan Union.
Se- retary Shirley Smith was added
to the committee by President Blish
last night, and will assume his place at
once. A meeting of the committee will
be held within the next few days to
adopt the letter form that will be sent
out.
A series of outdoor board track
meets, including runs of varying dis-
tances, a shot-put and high jump, is a
regular feature at Brown throughout
the winter.

Baseball for everybody, and not
solely for the men who are fortunate
enough to make the team, seems to be
the latest slogan of Coach Rickey. In
the first of his talks to the squad yes-
terday afternoon he laid emphasis on
the fact that although men may be
dropped, that they, and all their
friends, and all students, were urged
to attend the lectures, practice, and all
the work in the game. The first talk]
was an inspiring and strong one and
while it was more or less of an intro-
ductory nature, it pointed to the fact
that the Michigan team will not only
be as physically perfect as possible
this year, but also mentally so.
In order to follow out the idea of al-
lowing all men to attend the talks, cuts
will not be made until later than was
first announced and the entire squad
will receive a few lectures on the
technique of the game. Talks on bunt-
ing, batting, sliding, base running, and
all the essentials of the game will be
given and all the fine points disclosed.
The coach also impressed on the men
the necessity of hard and honest train-
ing and emphasized that a place on the
team was an honor, and if worth fight-
ing for was worth training for. Talks
will be given all this week in addition
to the usual practice and not until
next week will the squad be lessened.
The few last stragglers have report-
ed at the gym and the squad now num-
bers more than it has for years. Some
excellent material is beginning to de-
velop as well as some sore arms and
there is every reason to expect that
the team this year will be a good one.
Competition for practically every berth
on the team is hot and as a result the
early practice is more or less strenu-
ous..
FIRST YEAR GIRLS TO MEET

A basketball game between the
freshman and sophomore girls will be
held this afternoon at 5 o'clock at Bar-
bour gymnasium, after the lecture by
Dr. Lillian Welch. The game will he
