ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN, WEDNESDAY, MARCH 13, 1912.
claimed to typify hypocrisy, deceit and
perjury, and is severely rapped. The
radical views of the small schools are
pointed out to show that harmony is
im~ipossible,and the stand against the re-
sumption of Michigan games completes
the list of charges. It is a concise,
strong, and direct charge against the
May Mean Breakup of Conference.
If the withdrawal of Illinois really
occurs many believe that the confer-
ence will break up. Although some-
what quieted down, the feeling of the
student body of Minnesota is still alive
and ready to burst forth at the first'
opportunity. These two schools have
been the real financial support and
backbone of the conference, and in re-
turn, have had their wishes and desir-
es turned down. The mass meeting
will be held at Illinois tonight, and as
faculty action on the petition is ex-
pected in a short time, the outcome
will be watched with interest here.
There are still open dates for desira-
ble conference schools, and Michigan
may boast some schedules soon that
will look like old times.

MEMBERSHIP IS OPEN TO ALL
After a thirty year existence as the
Comedy Club, which has played before
the student public of Ann Arbor, and
then dissolved at the curtain's last
drop, with nothing to the credit of its
members but a little fool's-head emn-
blem, that organization met yesterday
and proposed a constitution which will
reorganize the club, and place it on a
new basis and in a new position as re-
gards the university. The constitution
as proposed embraces many radical
changes, and now awaits only the in-
dorsement of a faculty committee be-
fore which it will be formally placed
Instead of being a passing fancy and
effort with the dramatically gifted stu-
dents of the campus, it intends to or-
ganize as a club with a schedule of
regular monthly meetings which will
offer a program of some nature to be
proposed by a committee appointed for
the purpose. Dramatic literature will
be discussed, special assignments will
be given by members of the club on.

formal dramatic entertainments will be
given by the members. A room will
be secured to meet the new needs of
the club, and this will be equipped
with the leading dramatic publications,
and a library of dramatic works.

the one given in the past, will be given

All Students Eligible.
All students in good standing who1
pass the examination of the club are
eligible as members. This examination
will take on the form of an annual try-
out before the proper committee and]
the successful ones who pass muster
earn admission into the club, whether;
they are later picked to .fill parts or
not. The new eligibility list will al-
low freshmen to enter the club, as
well as students who may be low in
their work. This would not mean thati
these should be allowed to play in thei
roles of the chosen play, for in accord-;
ance with the university ruling, theyi
are forbidden entering such an activity,

the club will conduct monthly meet-
ings throughout the remainder of the
college year. The main effort will be
to get an early start and line up pos-
sible plays, which the club can pro-
duce next year, so that the choosing
of one of them will be made easier than
it has been in the past.
