FORESTERS MAY SPEND THEIR
VACATION PLANTING TREES.
The weather permitting, foresters
who remain in Ann Arbor during
spring vacation will have a chance to
get some practical work, and at the
same time earn a little spending mon-
ey. Several thousand tree seedlings are
to be planted some time this spring on
the Barnes farm at Geddes, and follow-
ing the custom of several years, the
work will be done during spring vaca-
tion, providing the weather is favora-
ble. Just at present the deciding fac-
tor does not seem auspicious, for all
frost must be out of the ground and all]
soil must be fairly dry before planting
can be begun.

ginning with next year, a series of+
strength tests will be made upon every
freshman, in addition to the physical
measurements made at present. The
tests will be made in the fall and
spring so that each student may know
the amount he has gained in strength
during the year.
A system known as the intercollegi-a
ate strength test, and consisting of.
tests of grip, pull up, push up, back
and legs, will be used. The apparatus,
which was purchased some time ago,
registers upon dials the pounds of
strength developed and the total con-
stitutes the final grade of each man.
The tests will be used merely for com-
pa'rative statistics and not. as a medi-
um of competition.
These tests have been used at Har-
vard and other schools for several
years but, because until recently many;
physical directors thought that they
were likely to cause more injury than
good, they have not been adopted here.
Next week Dr. May will explain and il-
lustrate fully the strength system to
the advanced classes in gymnasticgs.
NOTORIOUS EX-CONVICT IS
EXAMINED AT HOSPITAL HERE
"G. A. Kimell," the hero of one of
the most spectacular trials in the his-
tory of legal procedure, spent a part
of the day in Ann Arbor on Monday. He
went to the University hospital where
three specialists examined him with
the idea of having him submit to an op-
eration to trepan the skull in order to
restore his memory. One of the sur-
geons declared that such an operation
would prove exceedingly dangerous
and that he would only have one
chance in a hundred of recovering.

witnessed the first performance of "In
Old Badgad" last evening in Sarah
Caswell Angell hall. This is the
eighth annual play presented by the
junior girls in honor of the seniors,
and is a pretty, appealing comedy of
trifles; of quaint things, quaint people
and quaint places, made charming .by
clever music and costumes. The book,I
which is in three acts, is of a partic-
ularly interesting and humorous trend
and gives good opportunity for a bright
There are nineteen players in the
cast,-nineteen people whose charac-
terizations of Old Bagdad ring so true
that one is almost transported there
for the evening. Gladys Stowell and
Mary Palmer, as the two students,'
were received with much enthusiasm.
Elaine Shields took the laughable role
of Shampoo, while the part of Badou-
ra, the Caliph's daughter, was splen-
didly handled by Beulah Dillingham.
The "Violet Song"' and "Just for a
Smile" were perhaps the most delight-
ful of the several tuneful melodies.
Louise Conklin and Eva Hanks are
responsible for the book and lyrics,
and Earle Moore, of Union opera fame,
composed the music. The play is un-
der the stage direction of Mr. Herbert
A. Kenyon. The play committee is
composed of Georgia Maier, Ruth Post,
Esyllt Jones and Beulah Dillingham.
The second performance will be giv-
