ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 5, 1911.

UNIVERSITY STILL INCREASING.
Figures to Date Show Approximate
Total of 4692.
Figures given out at the close of
registration yesterday denoted a heal-
thy growth in practically every de-
partment. Exact gains of 150 in the
literary, 43 in the engineering, and 15
in the law departments were noted,
while approximations indicate propor-
tionally good advances in the other
departments.
These figures are necessarily tenta-
tive inasmuch as many are expected
to register during the next few days.
About 1670 make up the new fresh-
man class.
Following is the approximate de-
partmental registration to date: Lit-
erary, 2011: law, 714; engineering,
1242; medical, 238; homeopathic, 86;
dental, 190; pharmacy, 80; graduate
school, 131; total, 4692.

im- YOST NOT LIKELY TO QUIT.
loon-
age Bartelme Thinks there Is Nothing In
ties Resignation Rumors.
eup The periodic rumor which blossoms
im- forth whenever the contract of a Mich-
lars igan coach is about to expire has crop-
pel. ped out again in reference to Coach
ugh Fielding H. Yost whose contract ex-
ugh pires at the end of this season. A
ame report was current yesterday that
im- Coach Yost would resign, but there
n at appears to be absolutely no grounds
big for the story. At present he is in Chi-
as cago.
ack "I cannot understand how such a
3ase rumor could have started" said Di-
out rector "Bartelme, "and I cannot imag-
ine any basis for it. I have received
no intimation that Mr. Yost intends to
the give up coaching and I believe that as
>lay long as he does coach he will coach
st's for Michigan."

Selection
FRATERNITY WILL HAVE HOUSE.
Tau Beta Pi, the - honorary society
of the engineering department, held
its election Saturday, 'October 2.
Twelve men were chosen, the selection
being based on scholarship and per-
sonality.
The election was held unusually ear-
ly this year owing to the fact that
the fraternity will have a house hence-
forth and the members wished ,to
have an idea as to how many to make
accomodatons for. They will occupy
the old Alpha Sigma Phi house at
1204 South University.
The following is a list of the men
who were selected, the choices being
made from the first one quarter of
the senior class.
George Warfield Armstrong, Chemi-
cal, Middleville, Mich.
Gage Whitman Cooper, Civil, De-
troit, Mich.
Bruce Beardsley, Electrical, Hersey,
Mich.
William Andrew Davidson, Electric-
al, St. Thomas, Ont.
Otto Ellis Eckert, Civil, Saginaw,
Mich.
Howard Harding, Mechanical,, Hen-
rietta, N. Y.
Wallace Sheldon Heald, Electrical,
Sturgis, Mich.
Dale Van Pearsall, Electrical, Ches-
aning, Mich.
Thomas Joseph Mitchell, Civil,
Grand Marais, Mi h."

FOUR ALL-FRESH ELEVENS OUT.
Show Equal Speed and Snap in Sig.
nal Practice.
Coach "Hi" Cole had four full elev-
ens of freshmen chasing through sig-
nals in the south portion of the base-1
ball outfield yesterday afternoon,,and
the All-Fresh candidates displayed
more "pep" than on any previous ap-
pearance. They didn't get a chance
to see the Varsity scrimmage, but they
worked so hard themselves that they
didn't mind it in the least.
As yet there is no choice for firstj
and second elevens on the All-Fresh
team. The coach is content with plac-
ing his men in the positions they play
and giving them a set of formations.
He passed out signals yesterday and
showed the youngsters how to get<
away a series of plays from the same
formation, including several forward
passes. ,
This afternoon Coach Cole plans to+
give his charges scrimmage drill and
the playsrs who show the proper class
in the actual play will be given chan-
ces on the first and second elevens.
"Jack" Webster Places in Big Event.
J. P. Webster, Jr., '11, of last year's
tennis team, won second place in the]
National Clay Courts tournament held
recently in Omaha, Neb.

FRIDAY. I

UNION WILL PUBLISH MUSIC. I RECEPTION TO BE HELD

ean Mortimer E. Cooley of the en-
ering department gave the
; of his weekly talks to the fresh-
i of his department yesterday af-
oon. These talks are to take
e every Wednesday, and are to be
wn as "assemblies." In his talk
;erday, Dean Cooley impressed up-
the beginners the importance of
ng the right attitude towards their
lies and their instructors. He
. that the thing for first year men
o is to pass their school work suc-
fully, and then they may enter any
nch of college activity without in-
erence on the part of the faculty.
VS WILL NOW HAVE FEWER
HOURS AND MORE ELECTIVES.
hie work in all three classes of the
department has been changed
siderably this fall. Practically all
the courses 'have been increased
lours and a fewer number of sub-
s are now required. In the first
four courses for a total of thir-
i hours instead of six for the same
-ber of hours are now taken.
aly three courses are now requir-
.n the second year and one elect-
for a total of thirteen hours. Great-
reedom in electives is afforded the
ors as only three courses of ten
rs are required. Seventy-six hours
now needed for graduation instead
he eighty-eight which have here-
re been the requirement.

-John L. Cox, '12, was appointed gen-
eral chairman of the 1911 Union opera
to succeed Herbert Trix, '12, resigned,
last night by President Blish of the
Union. Three assistants to the gen-
eral chairman were also chosen as
follows: Philip Fletcher, '13 E; Ja-
cob Crane, '13 E; Godfrey Strelinger,
'13 E. The remainder of the commit-
tees will be announced and a call is-
sued for the annual poster competi-
tion within the next few days.'
Contrary to former custom the Un-
ion will publish the opera music this
year upon its own initiative. Maurice
Lohman, '12, has been placed in charge
of this department. His assistants
will be chosen later.
All students who have been writing
lyrics and music for this year's opera
should hand in their manuscripts to
Homer Heath at the Union before 6:00
today.
On Friday night the Union will be
thrown open to the University for the
annual reception.
FRESHMEN ARE- HAZED IN
LATEST APPROVED STYLE.
A few more members of the class of
1915 are better acquainted with each
other as a result of some more of tl)
"slap on the wrist" variety of hazing
last night. After strolling through
mud and a few drops of water the en-
tertainment closed with a display at
Granger's for the benefit of the girls
and a few upperclassmen.
Bids for Auditorium Wanted.
Bids for the erection of the new au-
