FESTIVITIES BEGIN AT 6 SHARP. SAVORS JUDGMENT FOR RETURN.
0L LATIN COURSE
ck That Latin is made difficult to the
;h high school student by crowding too'
,e much in one year was the consensus'
of opinion of the speakers at the clas-
sical conference of the Schoolmasters'
sat Club yesterday afternon. The college
its entrance requirements in Latin were
ne declared to be too rigid and the teach-
,y ers were hopeful that pressure of the
ly secondary school would be strong
st enough to change the requirements so'
rt that something else besides Ceasar
could be submitted for second year
To the tune of "Varsity" sung by the
girls'glee club, 600 women -will march

ventional manner: The speakers' table

an aisle down the center. At the speak-
ers table will be Dr. Angell, President
and Mrs. H. B. Hutchins, Dean Myra B.
Jordan, Miss Mary Farnsworth, the
toastmistress, Mrs. W. B. Henderson,
Dean Sarah Louise Arnold, of Simmons
College, Agnes Parks, Edna Thuner,
Mrs. E. D. Kinne, Marguerite Stevens,
and Vera Burridge. Governor Osborn
is unable to be present because of
press of business.
Mrs. Ferris, wife of President Ferris
of Ferris Institute, Mrs. Mauck of
Hillsdale, and Mrs. Snyder, wife of
President Snyder of M. A. C. will be
among the guests of honor.
The seating at the other tables will
be as follows: tables 1, 2 and 3 on both
the north and south sides of the aisle
reserved for collegiate alumnae and
guests. On the norht side, tables 4, 5,
and 6 are for the seniors, and 7, 8, and
9 for the juniors. On the south side
tables 7, 8, and 9 wlil be for the soph-
omores, and 4, 5, and 6 for any one
The entire six hundred tickets have

POSTPONE EXCAVATING WORK
ON HILL AUDITORIUM SITE.
Answers to the injunction secured
by Mrs. Mary Adams to restrain the
contractors from proceeding with the
excavation work on the auditorium
site, have been filed with the county
clerk. In accordance with the terms
of the injunction this part of the con-
struction work will not be taken up
again until the second week in April.
In the meantime the task of building
the large cement piers is going on rap-
idly, and derricks are being erected
for use in moving heavy material.
LYCEUM CLUB NOT LIKELY
TO BREAK UP AS RUMORED.
That the Lyceum Club is contemplat-
ing disorganization at the close of the
present season, as was reported a few
days ago, is denied by Sylvan S. Gros-
ner, secretary-treasurer of the club.
"Prof. Hollister has been in favor of
such an action ever since the Univer-
sity Extension Lecture course was first
planned," said Grosner. "The senti-
ment of members, however, is strong-
ly for the maintenance of our old pol-
icy, and we shall fill out our schedule
as usual after the beginning of the
(The Michigan Daily assumes no re-
sponsibility for sentiments express-
ed in communications.)
Editor, The Michigan Daily:-
Now that the Conference skeleton
has popped back again (the persist-
ent caller that our athletic oligarchy
cannot persuade to remain buried )
I wish to voice my little complaint and
ask a question. What am I, an inno-
cent and reasonably inoffensive com-
mon citizen, getting otu of athletics in
our present situation? I came here
with a notion that the open season
for athletes was from fall to spring.
I -expected to be able to sit in the
bleachers, decrease the world's supply
of peanuts, and have an excuse to yell
about something at various times dur-
ing the winter and spring as well as
for seven weeks in the fall. I had
viewed a few college ball games in
which there was somethig at stake
and had a notion they were something1
to smash one's neighbor's hat
about. Track meets interested me and
I looked forward with keen anticipa-
tion to viewing spirited spring games.+
For six years I have.,waited. I have
seen football games,and good ones, but
with continually shifting opponents.
I made up my mind that it was a great
and noble thing to lick Penn. Then
it became the highest ambition to see
a Gopher slain and sing about "The
Champions of the West." Then there
were Gophersno longer so I can wan-
der back next year to view a new foe.
Also I can help sing about "'Champions
of the What?"
But after football season what?
Those first seven weeks were exciting
and reasonably satisfactory but that
was all. In six years I remember hav-
ing seen two good ball games. One
was with Wiliams on a Thursday af-
ternoon so long ago that it is but a
treasured memory. The other with
Notre Dame lost its flavor because of
an interpolated slug-as-slug-can be-
tween one of the visiting gentry and
his umps. For the rest I have watched'
men in Michigan uniforms going+
through the motions of playing ball in
a matter in which the uniform was
about the only interest. I like to lis-
ten to a telegraph instrument. I read
The Daily, but those are not
exactly satisfactory methods of en-
joying the fine ball games that are re-
puted to occur on the Atlantic sea-
board. I have given up hope. For the
resident of Ann Arbor, college baseball
I would like to see Michigan's ball
team fighting for something or other
more than the high honor of
defeating Alma. If we had
a championship at stake, a ti-
tle to battle for, it might all
amount to something. We haven't even
ball games, or hope of any.
During these six years I have read
about our track heroes. I never saw
one of them in action on the cinder
path in anything approaching real
competition on Ferry field or any other
place. Seeing Craig, Gamble, and the
rest run across the Majestic screen
isn't completely satisfying to so un-
reasonable an archist as myself. After
some years of spring starvation I was
permitted to view a track meet with
Cornell. It was great but it was in-
doors and monly whetted my inordinate
appetite to see a track meet in the
open. Never has it been permitted me
to -bask in the sunshine of a day and
see a track meet. I am as familiar
with the methods of navigation of an
octopus as I am with how a track team
acts in a meet. To the citizen of Ann
Arbor a Michigan track athlete in ac-
tion is as common as a flock of dino-
Once upon a time I saw a big track
meet. A train brought two hundred
men from the University of Michigan.
