Twenty-Five Men Will Try For This
Year's Team.
Practice of the Varsity tennis squad
will .begin at the Ferry field courts
this afternoon.
About twenty-five men reported at
the meeting held Tuesday night and
received preliminary instructions
from Acting Captain Thorward. Each
man will be required to play a match
with every other candidate during the
fall practice which will continue as
long as the weather permits.
Others who desire to try out but
who were not present at the meeting
should communicate immediately with
B. F. Thorward.
Senior Dental Student Will Have
Charge of Militia Monoplane.
George W. McKay, '12 D, captain of
Company A, Michig'an State Signal
Corps, returned to school Monday
with an aviation license safely tucked
away in his jeans. He is the first na-
tional guard officer in the United
States to secure such a document.
Company A is stationed at Ypsilanti
where Mr. McKay makes his home.
Early last summer Captain McKay
was appointed by Governor Osborn
to a scholarship in the aviation school
at Long Island, in order that he might
learn aviation in the interests of the
state. He spent seven weeks experi-
menting with a Bleriot monoplane,
surviving the same with only two
slight mishaps. In the spring he will
have charge of a monoplane which is
to be purchased by the state for ex-
perimental purposes.
This is not the first time that Cap-
tain McKay has been called to do spe-
cial work for the national guard of
the state. Last spring he was sent
with others down to the Mexican
frontier when the United States troops
were mobilized for intervention pur-1
poses, and returned' to school just inf
time to take the June examinations.]

of the dean to give receptions during
the year to the different classes. AllE

ett Hall tomorrow afternoon at . 41
o'clock for the initial meeting of the'

stitution will be adopted and the or-
ganization and plans for the year per-t
fected. The meeting will be open to
all men from the state of Illinois.

Professor R. D. T. Hollister will
open the Oratorical Association pro-
gram tongiht with a recital of Ten-
nyson's "Maud" in Sarah Caswell An-

nesday 3 to 4:15.,


The fall exhibit of the Ann Arbor
Art Association at Memorial hall will
open Saturday evening, October 28.
A large number of paintings are be-
ing gathered for this year's collection
which promises to surpass all previous
exhibitions. About fifty opaque water
colors by Alexander Robinson, an
American artist who has received hon-
ors at European exhibits, have already


been secured.
All members of the association will
be admitted free to the exhibit on Sat-
urday evening. Dates on which it
will be open to the general public will
be announced later, but no decision
has as yet been reached by the di-
rectors whether or not an admission
fee will be charged.

Buckeyes do Not Hope to Re-

(Special to the Michigan Daily.)
COLUMBUS, 0., Oct. 18.-While'
Ohio State is much weaker than last
year, the Columbus eleven has three
men who will bear watching when 0.
S. U. meets Michigan on Ferry field
Saturday. These players are "Whit-
ey" Foss at Quarter and Markley and
Barricklow at the tackles.1
Foss is the star of the Ohio aggre-
gation and he has been responsible1
for all the scoring this season. On
the offense Foss is a swift runner, a
clever dodger, and can punt effective-
ly. In running back punts, State sup-
porters claim he has no equal in the
west. The backers of the 0. S. U.
eleven are looking for him to "showJ
up" McMillan in Saturday's battle.
As to the tackles, Barricklow is a
tall wiry man, who can duck andE
dodge under an opposing tackle andi
go down under punts like a streak.
Markley is not so strong in breakinga
through the line, but he is a power of
strength on the offense. So far thisl
year he has found no difficulty in op-
ening holes for the backs whenever
the play has been called on his side
of the line. Two-thirds of the line:
bucks have gone through the left side
of the line where Markley plays. I
The style of play Ohio State is us-
ing is not at all out of the ordinary.
The Ohio eleven is using the tackle
shift play that made Minnesota famous
last year, but is not getting it away
in good shape. For the most part,
however, it has resorted to little out-
side of straightaway football. Will-
iams, who plays half and fullback,
does the kicking for the Ohioans. He;
gets away a low kick averaging about
30 yards, and one that is exceedinglyi
hard to handle.
With a weaker team Ohio State doesf
not hope to make such a good showing
against the Wolverines as last years
when the game resulted in a 3 to 3 tie.1

Prof. Roth Tells Foresters Michigan
Must be Kept at Top.
"We must all double up and strike
hard in order to make up for some of
the facilities our forestry school
lacks," said Prof. Filbert Roth to the
members of the Forestry club last
evening. "We are bound to keep
Michigan at the top, but you men
must help. This club will do more
for ,you than some of the courses you
get and I want you to get behind it."

pose of considering the nomination ofI
another candidate for the presidency
but ended by endorsing one of thet
present candidates, R. H. Fryberger.l

Editor, The Michigan Daily:
The student body, the faculty

policy adopted by the S. L. A. BC
Until this year the Students' Le
Course may have possibly been .
to much criticism. Starting with
assumption that the audiences
made up altogether of highly educ
persons, the S. L. A. Board has
and then aimed a little above
mark, and secured lecturers whos<
tellectual flights have proved s<
what high even for an audience i
up of university students and fac
members. As an example of the
ure of this all too heavy kind of
tertainment some of us will no d
recall the wonderful lecture deliv
here by Dr. Cook.
After all what we want, and V
I fear, most of us need, is entert
ment, not instruction. And just
cause the S. L. A. Board has wit
markable insight comprehended
needs of our community, and bec
it is sparing no efforts to fill t
needs, I believe that the student 1
and the faculty owe a debt of grati
to that board and ought to upho:
in its present policy.
