last evening. "The hour finally set

UNION RECEIVES J-ILOP SURPLUS
hop Committee Maskes Appropriation
of $N)O for Special Fund.
At a special meeting of the J-Hop
committee held yesterday afternoon
at the Chi Psi house, it was decided
to appropriate the surplus left after
paying all expenses of the hop, to the
Michigan Union. This money, which
will probably amount to more than
$150, is to be used by the Union for
some specific purpose. At the meeting
it was suggested that the installation
of a fire-place for the new addition
now under construction would be an
appropriate use for the fund, but ow-
ing to the temporary nature 'of the
new structure it is doubtful if the
suggestion will be carried out.
The adoption of a new constitution
to replace the' present inadequate one
was also discussed but the matter was
finally laid over until the next meet-
ing.
RAIN PREVENTS PROBABLE

(Special to the Michigan Daily)
WOOSTER, O., May 16.-University
of Michigan tennis players were pre-
vented from annexing what appeared
to be a sure victory over Wooster Col-
lege here today. Rain set in after five
sets had been played and with the
score 2 to 0 in favor of the Wolver-
ines. The summary, as far as the
games had progressed, was as fol-
lows:
Andrews (M) won from White (W),
6-1, 4-6, 6-3. Holmboe (M) won
from Cander (W), 6-3, 6-3.
