Enthusiasm at Mass Meeting
Evidence of Student
A boundless quantity of "pep" was
displayed at the second mass meeting of
the year last night It effervesced
when the band appeared to start the
performance, and finally broke forth-
in one mighty cheer from 3,000 root-
ers for the team, when it came out..
The yells were produced in the most
gingerly manner shown this .year, un-
,der the leadership of "Hap" Haskins,
"Eddie". Hanavan, "Tommy" Doran,
and Emery Munson. "Varsity," the
new song came ini for a share of the
exuberance of the evening. A ring-
ing cheer Went up when "Jack" Ly-
man, general chairman of the evening,
introduced coach "Dan" McGugin of
the Vanderbilt team..
"What about the result of the game
tomorrow?". said "Dan," "Well, if you
ask every one in the South, every man
on the team, and me, the answer is
the same. We expect to win. We nev-
er go into a game that we do not in-
tend to win."
"Michigan meets a worthy foe on
the gridiron tomorrow," declared Prof.
M. R. Tilley, of the English depart-
ment, the other speaker of the even-
ing. Every year we stage a number of
football matches, but there is none
that has such general interest as that

The Markham pottery is of unusual
interest to local people because of the
fact that the designer, Mr. Herman
C. Markham; was once a member of
the University faculty. Mr. Markham
entered the pottery business under
peculiar circumstances. He had a
great number of roses about his home
and was unable to buy suitable vases
for the flowers. For this reason he
began designing his own pottery vas-
es. The specimens of his work on ex-
hibit prove his success in this line of
Oxygen Helmet to be Used.
The mechanical engineering depart-
ment has under advisement the pur-
chasing of an oxygen helmet for use
in the refrigeration plant in the me-
chanical laboratory. Experiments
plar.ned with the refrigeration appa-
ratus make the choice of such a safe.
ty device essential. There is *at pres-
ent no means of rescuing a student
working in the plant if one should be
overcome with the ammonia fumes.
The oxygen helmet, is equipped with
a lining of wool-felt to make it air
tight. Inside of the helmet is a little
tube connected with an air cylinder
which is strapped to the back of the
neck. There is air enough in the cyl-
inder, when fully charged, to last
about an hour and a half. Besides
this specific use the oxygen helmet
can be used in fire emergencies. *
The refrigeration plant will be plac-
ed in operation in a few weeks, and
the mechanical department will carry
out a series of experiments with the
Corliss engine in order to determine
the mechanical efficiency and economy
of the engine.
