are: Bided to hold the spring contests on
Per. May 17 and 18. The rules of the con-
.363 tests will be announced Monday by

.250 A committee with Saier as chairman
.250 was appointed to set a fixed date for
.206 the annual spring contests and Cap
.196 Night so that in future years all ar-
.162 rangements will be made with a def-
.111 inite date in view.
.090 Considerable discussion took place
.000 over a motion by Saier to have a com-
.000 mittee appointed to discuss plans for a
.000 confiscation day. "Confiscation day is
.000 a farce, as it is opposed to the spirit
.000 of the university," said Trix. "It will
be impossible to enforce it, as all of
.296 the classes are scattered" declared
Burge. "It would be more effective to
have the men of the freshmen classes
work among themselves." The motion
lost by a decisive vote.
EROfficial sanction was granted to John

Original P11n of Waiting Until
is Unpopular With Present
ADOPTION PROBABLE THIS YELAR
Considerable discussion has been
aroused among seniors in favor of the
adoption of the uniform Michigan but-
ton .tonce, rather than waiting unti
next year. The original plan of the
Michigan Union was not to issue the
graduate button until June 1913, but
it is likely, as a result of the discus-
sion, that work will be started at once
by the Union officials in selecting the
A number of styles have already
been suggested, butthe pne which has
been received with the most favor is
a snm 11 round badge of blue back-
ground with a yellow M in the center.
It l also probable that the gradu-
ate button which will be chosen will
be placed on sale for the alumni dur-
ing the Seventy-fifth Anniversary Cel-
ebration. In this way the button will
be given a wide circulation at once,
and in a few years should become a
well known Insignia for Michigan ten.
The Union will probably plan to give
the button to seniors who take out
the life memberships and will sell it
to non-members for a nominal sum.
Manager Heath and President Blish
both expressed themselves as heartily
in favor of adopting the button at
once, so it is highly probable that the
matter will go through.

Junior Engineers Vanquish Sopho-
mores by One Run; Ilomeops
The second series of games in the
interclass tournament was played off
yesterday at South Ferry field, it being
the first appearance of any of the
competing teams. The widely herald-
ed fresh laws came up to expectations,
and easily defeated the nine from the
dental department, while the soph en-
gineers were crowded out by the junior
engineers by the narrow margin of
one run. The homeop-pharmic game
was also close, the former team scor-
ing but one more tally than their op-
