morning, one of the gigantic balcony
trusses being used in the construction
M of the Hill auditoriurin crashed through
-IB1A the steel framework for a distance of
LE fity feet, causing damage to the ex-
tent of $500. Fortunately none of the
workmen were in the danger zone at
QQJ the time and no one was injured. The
truss which weighs over ten tons land-

plirig over, fell against and demolished
some concrete work. No damage was
done to the truss itself. The acci-

CORBiN BOOKED 10 TWIRL
Lospita1 Squad Has Been hloported
Fit for Duty, and Home 'Team
Will Show Full Strength.
There will be somewhat of a battle
at Ferry field this afternoon when the
Wolveri cs and Wabayh colle:ge hold
i 1
a debate to see who can slug and field
a ball the best. A runaway game is
not expected by either team and the
contest should be one of the best of
the season.
Wabash comes here with a reputa-
tion for winning ball games. Their
schedule has been a hard one and yet
they. have come through in great
shape, have taken the strong Notre
Dame team into camp, and further
placed the University of Illinois In-
eligibles deeper into that class as a
ball team. Michigan has had a good
rest since the last battle and the team
is in fine ,shape, with practically all
of the hospital list fit for duty. How-
ard will work at first again, and either
Scully or Nourie at third with chances
favoring the sorrel topped one. All
the pitching staff is in good shape, but
it is probable that Corbin will hurl,
leaving Smith and Baribeau for Fri-
day's and Saturday's games.
The curtain will ring up at 4:05 this
afternoon and the increasing size and
length of the days make it improbable
that the shades of night will inter-
fere. The Wabash lineup today will
be:

There's a little white tent on the
campus into which the student dollars1
are now drifting, for the Michiganen-t
sian is out. The first lot arrived yes-c
terday and were placed on sale atc
once, the buyers flocking by the scoreI
to secure the year books.
rThroughout the entire day there was
never a moment when the buyers weret
not about the tent and the little leath-c
er covered books vent fast. There aret
a few left and they will be placed on;
sale again this morning. When they
are sold, the rest of the prospective<
purchasers will have to wait for the
next installment.t
The 1912 Michiganensian presents
the best that the management' could
secure in material and workmanship
without any increase in the price. And,
added to its high grade is the fact thatI
it has appeared earlier this year than
usual.#
It is little different from the. other
year books in the matter of contents.;
There is the usual list of societies, the
yearly reports of athletics and other
;ampus events as well as the senior
pictures. But in addition to the cus-
tomary matters of routine, are sev-
eral views of the campus, that wereI
taken last winter and are particularly
attractive pictures of the buildings
covered with their heavy coats of
snow, This is rather a unique depart-,
ure from the customary photos of thet
familiar shaded walks of the campus.
STATIVYS'diCS OF ENROLLMENT
P1OVE (lAtN IN ATTENDANCE
Total Number of Students Reaches
6 ShwgNet Gain
of 20'
An increase of 205 students in the
university is shown by the last official
count which was completed yesterday
by Registrar A. C. Hall and his office
force. The total enrollment o both
regular and summer sessions, uring
the past year has been 5,586. This is
203 more than have ever been enrolled
in the university in any one year. The
greater part of this increase occurred
in the literary department, the other
portions of the campus for the most
part having merely slight gains.
The number of graduates during the
year 1911, as shown by the statistics,
was 1109.
JUNIOR DENTS hOLD PICNIC
TOI)AY AT WHITMORE LAKE.
Seventy-five juniors of the Dental
college have been given a day off by
the faculty and will go to Whitmore
Lake today on their annual picnic.
They will leave at 8:40 this morning
on the Ann Arbor, and *ill return at
7 p. m. Boat races, a ball game, field
contests, and sailing will furnish the
day's amusement.

The seal of the Senate Council's ap-
proval was set to the new constitu-
tion f. the Student Council, practi-
cally as proposed, at the meeti ng,
of the former body last night. In a
long session the new document was
passed .y the Senate Councilmen, and
whatever changes were made tended
to exceed the hopes of the student gov-
erning body, rather than disappoint
them. At its meeting last night the
Senate Council also decided to have
facultY -advisers appointed for all for-
eign students.
Although full details of the changes
to the constitution could not be given
out till the document had been refer-
red to the student committee, the gen-
eral tenor of the revision is known to
increase the scope of the Council's
powers. A way is provided to raise
funds, and strict regulations are in-
troduced regarding attendance at
meetings, and "electioneering" for a
seat in the Council.
Final action will be taken in the
course of a day or two, when the Stu-
dent Council committee ratifies what
the faculty men have done. It is near-
ly a year since the agitation for the
new constitution began in earnest.
Last Jane the first draft was drawn
up, by a committee of the council, but
no further action was taken till Janu-
ary of this year. The faculty commit-
tee, Dean Bates and Dean Cooley, met
at the Union yesterday noon for a
concluding conference with President
Davenport of the Student Council,
Captatin Sealby, W. S. McCormick, and
Frank Picard. During these prelim-
inary stages,' the document has been
mostly in the hands of W. S. McCor-
mick, who is in large part responsible
for the successful consummation of
the Student Council's plan.
tltIII AlITA BRAVES hOLD
ANNUAL ROPE-IN TONIGHT.
Michigamnua wigwam will open to-
night to admit ten new braves from
the junior palefaces. In war paint
and feathers, the 1912 tribe will issue
forth at 6 o'clock for the annual "Rope
In."
According to the red man's tradi-
tions, the new bucks will gather under
Tappan oak where they will be encir-
cled by the fighting braves, who with
war whoops and chants of the peace
pact, will lead them back to the camp
fire.
Dr. Hall Speaks to Paw Paw Alumni.
Registrar A. G. Hall left yesterday
afternoon for Paw Paw, to be present
today at the organization of the Paw
Paw alumni, and their first banquet.
President Hutchins had planned to go
but owing to the business that piled
up during his visit east, he was' una-
ble to leave.

TRIANGLES TAUfE IN TEN MEN. Ml
Annual Initiation of Junior Society
Held Last Night.
Ten sophomores were initiated last
night into the Triangles, the junior
engineer bonorary society. Following
the usual custom of the organization,
five of the men chosen were fraternity
men and five were independents. The
initiates were: Charles P. Barton,
Robert H. Braun, James B. Craig,
Stratford B. Douglass, Albert C. T, 1
Fletcher, George C. Patterson, Carl
B. Pfeifer, Beuford H. Reeves, The-
odore M. Robie, and Kenneth C.
Welch. FAM
Following the regular initiation, the
new men were tendered a banquet at l'lore
the Michigan Union. "Mac" McGee act-
ed as toastmaster, and Professors J.A.
Bursley and E. D. Rich, honorary
members of the society, gave short .Wil
talks. "Eddie" Hancock, "Tabe" Ta- speci
ber, "Steine" Steinhauser, and "Al"
Fletcher responded to toasts. ing t

members of the class gave spirited
talks. Frank McHale was chosen
leader of the soph team in the push-
ball contest, the leaders for the other
events having been previously ap-
pointed.
Hour of Contest Changed.
As a resultof the action of the Stu-
dent Council at its meeting last even-
ing, the hour of the tug-of-war contest
has again been changed. As matters
now stand, the event will be called
promptly at 3 o'clock Friday after-
noon.
The change was occasioned by the
objections of several members of the
faculty, who protested against class-
es being depleted to allow the con-
testants to1 leave early in the after-
noon. Following the action of the
Council, the time of the West Virginia
baseball game will probably be shift-
ed to 4:20.
