serve to perpetuate the name of the
class in a far better manner than any
other form of memorial, seems to be
the general opinion of the members of
the faculty of the uninversity.
Registrar A, . Hall was of the opin-
ionn that a scholarship would prove
to be the best kind of a memorial that
any class could possibly give. "The
field in this line is large," he stated,
"and ,there is not the slightest doubt
but that a scholarship would prove it-
self to be the best memorial that a
class could present to the university.
Of course, a memorial of that sort
would not be a spot of beauty on the
campus, but its lasting results would
overcome that. If the fund at first
does not amount to a sum large enough
for use as a scholarship, it could be
used as a loan fund."
Prof. R. M. Wenley believes that a
scholarship fund wold be a fine thing,
but he stated that it would be rather
hard 'to start. "The thing has been
tried before, but enthusiasm seemed.
to be lacking. The plan of a memorial
could be worked to greater advantage
if the classes for ten years would unite
and then, with a large fund at their
disposal, determine what they could do
with the money. At that time, the mem-
bers would see with greater clearness,
and would be in a better position to
dispose of the money."
Prof. Van Tyne stated that he high-
ly appoved of the.lan of establish-
ing a scholarship fund. "The idea has
been tried with great success in the
larger institutions of learning in the
east,"' he said. "The memorial plan
would be the finest kind of a thing for
the graduating class to leave to the
university and if one class started the
plan, I do not think that there would
be any danger that the succeeding
classes would not readily fall in line."
Senior Lits Must Pay Dues at Once,
This is the last day for senior lits
to pay their class dues. The S. L. A.
window will be kept open all day, and
the few stragglers who have not
as yet paid a visit must do so before
5 o'clock this afternoon, or their names
will be struck from the role.

FOR BALMY DAYS
Practice in Cage Progressing
Well But Men Need
SOUTHERN JOURNEY LOOMS NEAR
If there is one thing more than an-
other that is worrying Coach Branch
Rickey of the Michigan baseball team,
it is the continued absence of real
baseball weather. Rickey has a prob-
lem on his hands in selecting his
pitchers; he has a first base job that
is giving him a little trouble, but
these difficulties fade in comparison
to the trouble that the reticence of
spring is causing.
Work in the cage at Waterman gym-
nasium has progressed nicely, Rickey
has taught his candidates the rudi-
ments of hitting, and has laid special
stress on bunting. He has taught the
men how to do the fade-away slide and
the toe-hook slide. He has taught the
men how to get away from the base
when the pitcher is trying to hold
them close. But this is not all. Rickey
has watched his pitchers and catchers
develop, and has given his squad of
battery men one weeding on the
strength of their indoor showing. And
now he is ready to take his men out in
the open where they can perform on
a real diamond, where the pitchers.
can work with a team behind them,
where the men can cut loose some of
the offensive tactics the coach has been
drilling into them.
- Start on Trip in Three Weeks.
The spring trip for the Michigan
team is only a few weeks off. During
spring vacation, which begins April 5,
the Wolverines will.invade the South-
land, and unless the weather breaks
,in the near future, there will be no
chance for Rickey to get his squad out
of doors before the trip. A week out of
doors at the very least is necessary be-
fore the coach can make his final
choice of men to compose the team on
the first series of road games. Of
course, the coach could pick a passa-
ble team right now, and one that might
be able to play good ball as a team.
But indoor playing and outdoor play-
ngi are two different things and a little
of the out-in-the-open playing is nec-
esary before the real merit of the
candidates can be determined. And
even if Rickey were absolutely sure of
his men, a little practice on the dia-
mond would be necessary to work up
the team play.j
The dates for the spring trip and
possibly for the eastern trip and
nearly completed and will probably be
announced by Director Bartelme next

SENIORS MAY NOT PROMENADE
DURING COMMENCEMENT WEEK
Conflicting Dates May Cause Annual
Spring Event to be Omitted
at Graduation Time.
One of the regular events of Com-
mencement week, the Senior Prom-
e"ade, may be dispensed with this
June on account of the women's play,
"Alcestis," which will be given Mon-
day night, and of the band concert
planned by the Anniversary commit-
tee. The step is not to be taken, how-
ever, without reference to the wishes
of the classes and chairmen of the class
committees will meet next week to dis-
cuss the matter with Prof. Effinger, of
the Anniversary executive committee.
The principal feature of the Prom-
enade, regularly scheduled for Mon-
day of Commencement week, is the il-
lumination of the campus, and as the
campus is to be lighted for the
,bandconcert on Tuesdaynight, and
another event is set for Monday night,
an agreement is expected to be reached
whereby a practical repetition of the
illumination and promenade feature
will be avoided.

committee will not be responsible for

SURVEYORS MAY HOLD ANNUAL
SUMMER CAMP AT LATER DATE
Plans are being formulated by the
surveying department for this year's
summer camp. It has been decided
to use the same location as last year.
A mass meeting will be held before
spring vacation to find out when thv
men want to begin work. Last year
they started a week earlier and finish-
ed sooner, but on account of the cele..
bration here in June, and the unusual-
ly large number of-engineering sen-
iors who want to stay here for Com-
mencement week, it is thought that
camp will have to be started later
than last year.
