COMMITTEE T01WORK OUT STYLES
Michigan graduates of the future are
to have a permanent uniform insignia
as a result of the action of the Athlet-
ic Board yesterday. The button, which
has in the past been given out by the
Athletic Association, was formally
transferred to the Michigan Union with
the reservation that a Michigan button
be adopted by the Union and sold or
given to every Michigan graduate to
According to the preliminary plans
that ha been formulated by t'v U-
i, lase s ,of buttons will be adopt-

their resifi~ce at the university. Thy
permanent button will be only for thp
graduates and will probably be.given

of the ifnion for four. .years and will
probably be sold to stu'dents who have
not been union members for a nominal
T 'gan which will be followed out
in adopting the button is qpi that .has
been in use at a number of the eastern
universities, notably Princeton, with
much success. The bu-4.on will be the
same style year ;after year and will
be worn as the one distinctive mark
of a Michigan graduate.
"We will be able to give the yearly
button to members without adding any-
thing to our membership fee," said
Manager Heatl of the Union. "But
undoubtedly we will be compelled to
charge the students who do not become
members of the Union a small fee for
the graduate button.
"The Union button will be a great
aid to us in enlarging our r ember-
ship among the students. It adds
another tangible asset that we can of-
fer for membership."
The matter will be put in the hands'
of a committee to suggest styles for+
the buttons. It is not likely that the+
new order will take effect until next
year as the Athletic Association has
already issued buttons to its members.1
Varsity Protest, Against
of Cutting Down
Now comes the University of Mich-
igam, tennis squad and complains of
the manner and method of choosing
the nimble artists of the net and raq-
uet who will represent the l aize and
Blue o .the courts this sprNi.. Not
t! t lo e criticism is aimed at any indi-
vidua who is entirely responsible for
h, wrong. but rather .is the system at-
acked. So far the complaint has not
ached a definite stage but is confined
to rumors and mumbling, but it may
eventually result in something.
In choosing the squad it has not
been the custom to hold an elimination
tournament or to allow a long time in
which to pick the most likely looking
men but the man'er of dropping the
candidates has een rather sudden.
Acordhg to those who seek a change
the squad consisted -of about thirty
m n a wee*.or so ago atd no'w but
a half dben remain to chase the
bouncing pellet. It is argued that a
longer time should be allowed before
the final choice is made, and that
sofine sort of a system should be had
whereby a better line could be obtain-
ed on the me'rits of the men. Capt.
Thorward could not be located to give
the other side of the controversy but
no serious rebellion is expected.
With an. idea of getting a line on
available material, a freshmen tennis
squad will be organized tonight at
Waterman gym when Capt. Thorward-
anti Dr. Lee will talk to all freshmen
candidates and endeavor to work up
enthusiasm among the yearlings.

Intricate novelties and surprises are

logarithmic dance called the slide..rule,
designed by one of the senior boiler-
makers, will be presented for the first
