Many New Musicians Give Samples of
Their Ability.
The Mandolin Club, under the direc-
tion of Roscoe Gage, held its first try-
outs last night in University Hall. Out
of the twenty-five men who were pres-
ent, thirteen will be selected to fill the
vacancies in the club of twenty-two.
Among the tryouts last night, there
were fourteen mandolins, four guitars,
three violins, one violincello, one man-
docello, and two clarionets.
Leader Gage says he is very much1
pleased with the abundance and ex-1
cellence of material. He also stated
that some of the tryouts have excep-7
tional ability and on this account the
competition will be very keen.
The final selection will not be madei
until nearly time for the trip whicht
is held in conjunction with the, gleec
club during the Xmas vacation.t

Detroit women are becoming inter-
ested in the campaign for funds for
the women's residence halls that is be-
ing conducted by the Women's League.
At a meeting of the College Club of that
city held Monday afternoon, a commit-
tee was appointed to investigate the
matter and also to confer with the
women alumni in Detroit about rais.
ing money for the project.
As yet the League has not solicited
any funds from the women of Detroit
nor prepared to make a canvass of
the alumni. In fact the matter has
been left entirely to the College Club
committee. Dean Jordan, accompa-
nied by several of the faculty ladies
and senior girls were present at the
Monday meeting. They spoke about
the need of a residence hall for the
university girls and the appointment
of the committee was the result of
their plea.

final choice is sure to give Penn a

Penn's coaches are working hard

have the men in the best possible con-

of the linking of the past and the pres-
ent with the future and the essential
unity of all three in our Alma Mater
cannot be too strongly expressed.
It has been my good fortune to have
revisited Michigan twice since my
graduation and I have looked for the
old customs and songs that I knew
and which thousands of Michigan men
before me have known. In all cases I
did not find these things and, in many
cases, those that I did find had, in the
search for novelty, been changed al-
most beyond recognition. I would not
be understood as standing against
progress and modern spirit but sure-
ly our songs and traditions may re-
main sacred. It is those things that
make up a large part of what we call
Michigan Spirit; it is in those things
that some of our dearest memories are
enshrined, and, for those reasons, and
because we Alumni, representing the
past, desire to feel our unity with the
present and the future, I plead that
we may seek to retain our traditions.
Above all things, do not let us lose
the custom of singing the "Yellow and
Blue" between halves. For years, on
countless fields and in encouragement
of countless gridiron warriors, Michi-
gan's sons have stood between halves
while, with bared heads and with
hearts full of loyalty, they have given
expression to their loyalty, they have
given expression to their devotion to
their Alma Mater in the words of that
glorious old song. As I write I see
the pictures of those mellow autumn
afternoons, the team on the field, and
the hundreds of loyal Sons of Michi-
gan paying their homage to their Alma
Mater in the manner hallowed by tra-
dition and endeared to thousands of us
by tender memories. It is a wonder-
ful picture and let us not introduce
into that picture a new and unknown
Sincerely yours for Alma Mater,

In addition to plans for the inter-
class rush which occurs Saturday, the
Student Council at its session last
night, also took up' the matter of stu-
dent cheer leaders and the rules to
govern the coming class elctions. The
eighteen new members of the Council.
he result of the elections Monday were
sworn in, bringing the total member-
ship up to the maximum provided for
in the Council constitution.
A committee, composed of represen-
tatives from the various departments,
was appointed for the purpose of de-
vising plans to meet the dearth of'
cheer leaders that seems to prevail
this fall. Just what scheme will be'in-
augurated will be made known after
the committee has held its meeting
this evening. This question was also
discussed yesterday at a meeting of
the Board of Directors of the Athletic
association, at which time it was de-
cided that several men should be given
try-outs at today's game between the
Varsity and the Reserves. Munson,
Hannavan, and Doran are the probable
candidates. It is hoped by the Coun-
cil that by working in harmony with
the Association, a solution of the dif-
ficulty will be found.
The interclass constitution being
still in the hands of the non athletic
committee for ratification, it was de,
cided to ask those classes whether or
not it would be agreeable for them to
hold them under the clause of the pro-
posed uniform constitution that gov-
erns class elections, the same having
met with the approval of the non ath-
letic committee. Councilmen were ap-
pointed for the purpose of laying the
matter before each class.
"Chick" Lathers Takes a Bride.
"Chick" Lathers, the former Michi-
gan third baseman and later a Detroit
player, will be married tonight in
Grand Rapids. His bride is Miss Ruth
Richmond, of that city, and the mares
riage is the culmination of a romance
started while Lathers was in college.

Condemnation proceedings were
started yesterday by Attorney-general
Kuhn, acting for the Regents of the
university, against Zachariah and Ida
York, who own the lot on South Thay-
er street, north of the Winchell prop-
erty upon which the new Arthur Hill
auditorium will be erected. The lot
is said tq be held at an exhorbitant
price, several times the amount asked
by the owners before they heard that
the university wanted the property.
The Regents decided to use the power
of eminent domain which was conferr-
ed upon the university by the new con-
The attorney-general asked that
three commissioners be appointed to
determine the value of the property.
This price, if approved by the court,
will have to be accepted by the owners.
This is the first time that the univer-
sity has had to resort to such meas-
ures in order to obtain property.
Dean Mortimer E. Cooley of the En-
gineering department returned yester-
da afternoon, from a short trip east.
On last Thursday he spoke at Atlantic
City, before the Eelectric Railway Ac-
countants' Association on the subject
of "Overhead Charges." "The electri-
cal manufacturers' exhibit, on Young's
$1,000,000 pier is one of the most not-
able exhibits of its kind ever given
in this country, and was well worth
the trip to see," said Prof. Cooley.
Prof. Cooley also saw the Curtis Hy-
dro-aeroplane in action and took
some pictures of it, while it was skim-
ming over the water and after it had
sailed into the air. Since last Friday
he has been in Washington attending
a meeting of the Block Signal and
Chain Control Board, of which he is
a member.
The state university of Iowa will
have a new physics building, costing

gineering Society to be given in the
society rooms next Saturday evening.
The smoker is a free-for-all to mem-
bers of the engineering department.
The committee on arrangements will
spring some features that promise to
be good.
By the end of°this school year sev-
eral changes will be completed in the
appearances and locations of num-
erous houses belonging to fraternal
organizations about town. A few
such changes have already.been made
and others will follow in the course
of a few months. The Chi Psi frater-
nity house is being altered within on
account of a fire a week ago Monday
which damaged several rooms. The
Delta Gamma sorority house on the
corner of Hill and Church streets is
nearly completed The members of
the Phi Kappa Sigma fraternity have
changed their residence to their new-
ly purchased house at 1443 Washte-
naw Avenue and will begin extensive
alterations and additions at once.
Prof. Richard Hudson sold his home
at 1023 Oakland Avenue to the Alpha
Tau Omega fraternity and the latter
has taken up its habitat there. The
Phi Kappa Psi fraternity house on
Washtenaw avenue will be remodel-
ed in the spring. A new building will
soon be in course of erection at the
present location of the Sigma Chi
house on State street. The old house
will be torn down in November. The
Gamma Phi Beta sorority will build
this year on South University avenue.
