mean head to the power house situa-
ted on the north bank of the river,
which will be capable of generating
1500 kilowats. The Michigan Central
tracks will be protected by an em-
bankment running parallel to them.
W1ill Give Chance for Crew.
The fact that a straight course over
one and one half miles long can be
laid out over water 17 feet deep has
already given rise to considerable dis-
cussion on the possibility of a Michi-
gan crew. As there wil be no notice-
able currpnt in the lake, conditions for
boating will be greatly improved.
That the proximity of the lake
to Ann Arbor has led several local peo-'
ple to seriously consider building cot-
tages for summer use on the bluffs!
which will form the north shore of the
lake, and the appearance of a summer
colony there would not be surprising.
RALPH CRUG IS SURE TO
COMPETE IN OLYMPIC GAMES
That Michigan will be representedf
in the Olympic games in Stockholm is
now an assured fact. Ralph Craig,
formerly king sprinter of the Univer-
sity, has decided to compete in the
tryouts either at Harvard stadium or
at Evanston, Ill., under the auspices
of the Detroit Y. M. C. A. Ralph is
in splendid condition at the present
time and will make a strong bid for
the 100 and 200 meter dashes. He
shares the 100 and 220 yard'intercol-
legiate records with Wefers "of Dart-
mouth.

LIT FACULTY DiSCUSSES
REQUIREMENTS IT NEETPING
At a long session of the 'lit faculty
last night the proposed changes in the
entrance requirements were discussed
pro and coi, but with no other result
than to table the proposition at the
end of the meeting. No action will
be taken on the matter till the recom-
mendations of the committee on grad-
uation requirements have been sub-
mitted and discussed. The report of
the latter committee is to be made the
subject of a "special order" to be the
subject of discussion at the next fac-
ulty meeting which will probably oc-
cur in the course of three or four
weeks.

Band Ready to Work if Stand is Erect-
ed.
"Spring concerts by the univer;;ity
band will take place this year as usual
if the band stand is again erected so
that we will have some place to give
them," said "Ike" Fischer, leader of
the band, yesterday. It has been cus-
tomary for the concerts to begin about
the first week in May and the same
plan will be followed this year if ev-
erything works out as is xpected,
Should the band stand, from which
the entertainments have always been-
given, not be replaced, there would
be no other spot on the campus suitable
for concert purposes. However, ac-
cording to the statements of their
leader, the members of the band are
willing to play.
