Northville, Mich., May 20, 1912.
Editor, The Michigan Daily:-
My dear sir:-I write you today that
you may know of the great victory
which Michigan scored last Saturday.
The two mile race was a double vic-
tory for the Yellow and the Blue. Not
Only did Haimbaugh defeat Danes, who
is acknowledged one of the best two
milers in the East, but in a display of
manliness of the true type an even
greater victory was won in the stands.
It was very evident after the first
mile that Haimbaugh was far superior
to his eastern competitor. According-
ly as Danes passed the tape on the
sixth and seventh lap, three or four
men began to berate and jeer the Syr-
acuse runner. My heart was cheered
and my admiration for Michigan in-
creased fifty per cent as the stands
put a stop to the unmanly conduct and
let the man finish without the stigma
of defeat plus the taunts of the spec-

size for any use the university may
have for it, the university authorities
assert that the stage will be ample in
size and moreover, will be especially
serviceable on account of its peculiar
shape. It may safely be affiruied that
no other university posesses a build-
ing of precisely the same character.
The stage which is to be more than
70 feet wide and 30 feet deep will be
just about the shape of the stage of
the celebrated Orchestra Hall of Chi-
Notwithstanding the size of the au-
ditorium it is expected that the acous-
tic effects will be better than in the
present University hall. The whole
rear of the hall and the back of the
stage and above will be built in the
curve of a parabola, so that the sounds
of a voice or of an instrument at the
focus will be carried out into the hall
ni a manner similar to the reflector of
a locomotive headlight. The control
of objectionable echoes will be assur-
ed by the texture of the walls.
At the side of the stage are several
small rooms for the use of artists who
take part in the concerts; and back of
Reading Standard Motorcycles.
