The annual meeting of the Musical
clubs for the election of officers for
the ensuing year will be held at 4
o'clock Friday afternoon, in the
north wing of University hall.
The money advanced by the mem-
bers for the western trip will be re-
funded at that time.
A joint concert of the Musical clubs
and the Girls' Glee club is planned for
June 6 in University hall.

Covered racks for the paper towel

)ne Betters His Record in
Yard Hurdles, While None
Equal His 220 Mark


If records set up in the east Satur-
day by teams which are sure to be fac-
tors in this year's Intercollegiate May
.31 and June 1, are to be taken as a cri-
terion, Michigan will have a fair
chance of showing well in the eastern
meet. Comparisons between some of
the performances of Michigan athletes
and the eastern men, show that the
Wolverine track and field exponents
are not at all behind when it comes
to classy showings.
In the hurdles, for instance, Jim-
Jie Craig's exhibition against Syracuse
Saturday compares most favorably
with the showing made by the east-
ern men. Craig made the 120 yard
high sticks in :16 flat, Larkins of Yale
did the high hurdles in :16 1-5 in the
Yale-Harvard meet, Dell of Princeton,
made a record of :16 4-5 in the same
event in, the Cornell-Princeton dual
struggle, while Wendell of Wesleyan
set a mark of :15 4-5 in the New Eng-
land Intercollegiate. In the 220 yard
low hurdles, Craig had them all beat-
en when he covered the barriers in :24
1-5. The other records were, Cumings
of Harvard, :25 fiat; Whinery of Cor-
nell, :26 flat; and Wendell of Wesley-
an :24 4-5.
In the high jump, Sargent's mark
of 6 feet 1-4 inch was only topped by
Moffat of Harvard who leaped 6 feet
2 inches. Dell and Simmons of Prince-
ton tied at 5 feet 9 1-2 inches, while
Dalrymple of Maine Tech and Enright
of Dartmouth tied at 6 feet 1-6 inch.
Gutterson of Vermont and Cable of
Harvard both excelled Waring with
broad jumps of 23 feet 5 2-5 inches and
22 feet 10 1-2 inches, respectively, but
Waring and Cohn both topped Host of
Cornell who leaped 21 feet 4 3-4 inch-
es. Waring and Cohn are both capa-
ble of doing better.
Hanavan's mark of 4:29 1-5 in the
mile run was beaten by Tabor of Brown
who ran the event in 4-24 2-5, and
Putnam of Cornell who ran it in 4:27
2-5. Hanavan's mark was better than
Warren's of Harvard, however, as the
latter made the distance in 4:29 4-5.
Jones of Cornell ran in the Cornell-
Princeton race, but finished second.
Haimbaugh, whose mark of 9:51 2-5
in the two mile was comparatively
slow for him, made a better record
than Power of Maine and Finch of
Cornell who ran the two mile event
in 9:54 2-5 and 9:57 2-5 respectively.
Boyd of H arvard did the two miles in
9:45, but Ilaimbaugh can better this
mark as he showed in the Varsity
meet. Berna the Cornell two miler,
gave way to Finch in the Cornell-
Princeton meet, and he is not to be
counted out in the Intercollegiate pos-
In the shot put Kohler's mark of 43
feet 6 3-4 inches topped Bachelder of
Harvard who heaved the weight 43
feet 4 1-4 inch, and Bissell of Prince-

cost of maintaining paper towels as
they have been used is considered pro-
hibitive to their continued use it is
thought that this will prove to be a
more economical method.
One of the main reasons why the
substitutes for the unsanitary roller
towels cost so much was the inability
to regulate their consumption within
reasonable limits. A variety of
causes contributed to this result.'
A jerk at the roll might unwind much
more than was needed, or a wet hand
placed on the roll might soak the top
layers and make them unfit for use.
Purchasing Agent C. L. Loos has
ordered covered racks which will ob-
viate both these difficulties, and. it is
expected to so reduce the cost of sup-
plying paper towels that their expense
will no longer be felt to be unreason-
able and prohibitive. Two of the
racks to be installed have round knobs
on the end of the wooden core to the
roll. The knobs have to be pushed in
and twisted to get out a towel. Anoth-
er experiment is a rack with a lever,
instead of a turning knob and a pull
at the lever will turn out just one tow-
el length.
The racks are to be installed this
week, probably in the library and Uni-
versity hall lavatories, and the antici-
pated reduction in consumption will
be closely watched
It is calculated that without the
racks it would cost about $84 to sup-
ply a washstand with paper towels for
a year. A single roll costs 28 cents,
wholesale, and it takes a roll a day, on
the average, for a single washstand.
Figuring 300 days to the year $84 is
the resulting cost.
Roller towels cost about twelve
cents to start with, and can be laun-
dered for two cents. They will stand
about twenty launderings. Figuring
two towels a day to a stand for 300
days, makes their apparent cost $14.40
a year.
Senior Lits and Fresh Engineers Van-
quish Fresh Medicas and
Two farcical games of baseball were
played on South Ferry field yesterday
afternoon when the '12 lits met the '15
medics and the fresh engineers the
homeops in the first fracas of the in-
ter-class semi-final series. After
pounding Vis from the box in the
fourth and badly misusing' Koebbe,
who followed him, the lits added in--
suit to injury when they completed the
final half of the seventh with each man
enjoying the pleasures of an ice-cream
cone. The final tally was 17-4 in fa-
vor of the lits. Batteries: lits, Pen-
nell and Lewis; fresh medics, Vis,
Koebbe and Goehring; umpire, MMil-
In the engineer-homeop set-to, the
going was again all one way, the first
year men taking the big end of a 13-0
count. Idson pitched excelle~nt ball
for the pill-feeders and deserved a
much closer score as he held the
bridgebuilders to five safe clouts and
struck out fourteen men. The men
behind him, however, failed in the cru-
cial moments and were unable to se-
cure the least sign of a safety from
the deliveries of Sisler and Hadden
who struck out six and three men re-
spectively. Batteries: '15 eng. Sisler,
Hadden and Shepard; homeops, Id-
son and Smith;-umpire, Carpell.
The games between the '12 lits and
the '15 engineers, the junior laws and
the homeops which were postponed
last Thursday on account of rain will
take place Friday afternoon.

night. They will play six games be-
fore the return home, only two with
the same team and will meet some of
the strongest aggregations in the east.
Only thirteen players made the trip,
Coach Rickey depending on three
pitchers and one catoher to do all the
heavy battery work that will be nec-
essary. Manager Good also accom-
panied the team, making a total of
fifteen men.
The regular lineup will be on hand
in every game according to present
expectations, Howard playing first and
Blackmore and Scully alternating on
third. Rogers is the only catcher who
was taken and in case he is hurt Mun-
son will probably be called on to
backstop. Smith Baribeau, and Cor-
bin are the hurlers who were taken
and Snadjr will be used for utility.
Duncanson and Lavans are in good
shape and expect to play in every
The team played yesterday at Syr-
acuse and repeat the performance
there today. On Wednesday they trav-
el to West Point to try conclusions
with the strong Army team and on
Thursday Princeton will be the op-
ponent. The open date for Friday has
been filled by scheduling a game with
Rutgers college. The first game of the
Pennsylvania series will be played
Saturday at Philadelphia and will
complete the trip.
The men who made the trip are:
Mitchell, Bell, Munson, Duncanson,
Lavans, Howard, Blackmore, Scully,
Rogers, Snadjr, Corbin, Smith, Bari-

Musical Clubs and Girls' Glee Club
Will Perform June 6.
The musical clubs and the women's
glee club are planing a joint con-
cert to be held in tniversity hall
Thursday evening, June 6. Woodbridge
Metcalf and Josephine Davis, leaders
of the clubs, have completed arrange-
ments for the concert which will be
rather an innovation as the two clubs
have had an unusually success-
ful reason, and by combining
their forces they should be
able to give an interesting per-
formance. The features of the con-
cert will be the "Yellow and Blue" and
other college'songs by both clubs and
a number of popular hits by a quar-
tette from the mandolin club. A gen-
eral admission of twenty-five cents will
be charged,
The concert will be followed by the
annual reception of the musical clubs
at Granger's, admission by invitation
Ballot boxes have been placed in the
library, University hall, and the engi-
neering building to receive written
sentiments of sophomores concerning
the Put-in-Bay outing proposition. The
committee in charge will postpone its
decision concerning the event untl
after Thursday when the ballots will
be taken up and perused to ascertain
if a sufficient number is desirous of
taking the trip.
Foresters Will have Last Smoker.
The fifth and last of the series of
smokers to be given by the Forestry
club this year will take place at the
Union next Thursday evening. The
affair is to be given in honor of Prof.
C. L. Hill of the forestry department,
,who leaves the university at the end
