(Special to The Michigan Daily.)
ITHACA, N. Y., Nov. 7.-Michigan's
squad arrived at Geneva this morning
at 11:10 o'clock, and after making its
headquarters at the Seneca hotel, went
to Boswell field, the athletic grounds
of Hobart college, for a light workout.
Yost limited the "limbering up" re-
hearsal entirely to passing and kick-
The Wolverines will reach Ithaca
shortly after noon tomorrow, and go
directly to Percy field, where they
will clash with the Ithacans, in the
first great battle of the season be
tween the east and west. Supporters
of both teams are equally confident
of victory, which is shown by the fact
that all betting is even.
All the Michigan men appear to be
in prime condition, with the exception
of Benton, who is nursing his injur-
ed foot. Sharpe's team will be great-
ly handicapped by the absence of
O'Hearn at his regular position at the
right wing. The Michigan team and
followers will remember the quality
of the spee y end's football, which he
displayed on Ferry field last year.
All week long the Cornell coaches
have driven the red team through
hard signal practices and long scrim-
mages, in an endeavor to improve up-
on the form shown so far this season.
In the practices, they have developed
a peculiar attack to be used tomorrow
against Michigan's open center, and
they believe that they have solved the
weak spot in the Westerner's defense.
Barrett is the man whom the Itha-
cans are relying upon for the victory.
The left halfback has been the chief
ground gainer in previous games, and
it was his line plunge that scored
against Harvard last Saturday. The
sturdy backfield man is also a star
punter and it is believed that his boots
can keep the Wolverines at a safe dis-
tance from the goal line.
Michigan outweighs her opponents
four and one hal pounds to the man.
The western athletes average 177 1-2,
to the easterners' 173. The backfield
that will probably be sent against
Michigan averages 164 1-2 against the
159 average of Yost's backs.
No final lineup has been given out
from .the Cornell camp, but it is a
pretty sure bet that the same men
who started the game will oppose
Michigan, with the exception of Rees
playing at right end instead of
O'Hearn. Yost will start his regular
lineup with Torbet at fullback.
The probable lineup follows:

Send Freshmen Wari ings in Rhetoric.
More than 100 r etoric warnings
have been sent out by that department
to freshmen doing unsatisfactory
work. This notice gives the recipient
three weeks in which to improve his
work, and if it is not satisfactory at
the end of that time he will be trans-
ferred to section A.
Upon entering section A the student
is required to pay a fee of ten dollars,
and at the end of the term will receive
no credit for his work. The trans-
fers will take place November 20.
Medical Museums Open for Inspection.
In the medical building three mu-
seums are open to the public at all
hours that the building is open. The
Pathological museum is located in the
southeast corner of the first floor.
Along the corridors of the third floor
i are cases containing old books and
rare documents. On the walls are
drawings which have been made by
students at various times,

l'noficial Tea Will Represent u'ni-
versiy at Normal.
A soccer team made up of students
of the university will journey to Ypsi-
lanti this morning to meet the associ-
ation players of the state normal col-
lege. While the game will be the
first .that the university men will en-
gage in, the wealth of speedy and ex-
perienced foreigners on the local team
indicates that the contest will not be
a walkover for the normalies.
Almost thirty men, including Sever-
al Chinese students, who have played
the game in their native country, have
reported for practice during the past
week and Director Rowe, who has the
squad in charge said that the present
team would undoubtedly prove to be-
the best that the university has turned
out. Two contests have been schedul-
ed and several prospective bookings
are in sight.
The following men -will meet at the
corner of State and Packard street at
1:00 o'clock and make the trip:
Captain F. J. Watts, Manager O0
Glenny, Pan, Tripolitis, Banky, Rob-
ertson, Coryell, James, Brown, Hager,
Stallings, Donnell, Kolb, McDowell,
Newling, Dunlop, Deliefelds, Kiel, and
all others who have reported for prac-
Competition for writing the music
for the 1914 Union opera, will be re-
opened, at a meeting of all members
who desire to try out, on Monday
night at 7:00 o'clock at the Union. It
was decided to do this at the meeting
of the Mimes Thursday night, in crder
that everyone may have a fair chance
to compete. The original trials were
held last spring, just before the close
of college, so that only a very few
took any interest in them.
The opera committee desires to have
all men, who are at all interested to
attend this meeting, at which time
lyrics of four or five songs will be
given out, for the men to work on.
The music will not then be due until
December 15, from which the final
choice will be made. Several men
have already started work.
Arthur Cohen, '14L,, resigned as dra-
matic manager of the Mimes at the
same meeting. A committee consisting
of Gordon Eldredge, '14, chairman,
Bernus Kline, '14, and Waldo Fellows,
'14, was appointed to arrange a Mimes
skit for each Union dinner, the next
one being scheduled for December 3.
Professor Jesse S. Reeves of the
economic department, who has long
been dissatisfied with the amount of
;round covered by the past courses
in international law, has had the study
changed from a semester to a full
year course. The course as given
heretofore has not been extensive
enough to give the student a fair un-
lerstanding of the entire subject.
"Before the student was well along
n the road to a better understanding
of the subject, and was beginning to
comprehend the significance of it," de-
clared Professor Reeves, "the semes-
ter was at an end and the course fin-
ished. By making this a full year
course we hope to remove this evil,
and teach the student three times as
much law as he would have learned
under the old system."
The textbook used this year is Law-
rence's "Principles of International
Law" supplemented by cases on the

Winner of Sopbomore Lit-Medic Biatlei
Will Meet Senior Lits,
With the campus football chamipionz-

ior engineers loom up formidably as
contestants for inter-class honors.
Several other classes are still in the
running, prominent among whom are
the junior medics.

won their respective department. title.
The winner of this morning's sopho-
more lit-sophomore medic game, is
scheduled to meet the senior lits. The
victors of this contest will then play
the senior laws, and the aggregation
successful in pulling down the verdict,
in this encounter will be one of the
teams due to play in the champion-
ship fray. Just who their oppenenfts
will be for inter-class honors, de-
pends upon the outcome of the senior

Kentucky (lub Initiates Members,
Kentucky club initiated 12 members
at its second smoker of the year at
the Union last evening. At the busi-
ness session, plans for the annual
banquet to be held Thanksgiving even-
ing at the Union, were outlined.
After being sumptuously dined last
evening by "Dave" Willets, 22 scrubs1
and Coach Kennedy embarked at 7:301
o'clock on the special train en route,

Accompanying them on their long
journey were 35 bandmen, "Hap" Hafft
in the capacity of cheer leader, Mr. P.
G. Bartelme, athletic director, and
about 60 excited rooters..
The trip is given the members of
the reserve squad as a reward for their1
faithful services during the season;
and is a reward, of which they have1
proved themselves particularly deserv-
ing this year by the effective manner1
in' which they opposed the varsity in
the practice scrimmages.
Contributions toward sensing the
Varsity band to Cornell are still com-
ing in. Yesterday a letter was re-
ceived at the athletic association from
former Prof. Gardner S. Williams en-
closing $35.00, subscribed by himself
and his office force. Mr. Williams was
formerly connected with the engineer-
ing department of the university, but
for the last two years he has been de-
voting his time to the practice of con-
sulting engineer.
Any other money still outstanding
from the tag sale may be left at the
athletic office, or with J. 1. Lippincott
at the Michiganensian office.
Junior lits will have the first oppor-
tunity of the year to get together at
their informal dancing party in Bar-
bour gym from 2:00 to 5:00 o'clock
this afternoon. Reports of the Cor-
nell game will be given out, and other
features are promised. Prof. and Mrs.
Gordon Stoner will chaperone the par-
ty. Music will be furnished by Fish-
Tickets may be secured at the door,

Seniors to Discuss Adiiory Systemi,
At the meeting of .the senior
literary class Monday afternoon, at
4:00 o'clock in the west physics build-
ing, the senior advisory system com-
mittee will present its report. Plans
for the future will be discussed in-
cluding the porssibility of another
smoker, or a luncheon before the
Christmas holidays. Karl B. Hoch,
chairman of the committee, is particu-
larly anxious, that all senior advisors
attend this meeting, as several im-
portant questions will be discussed.

A meeting of the teachers' appoint-

November 10, at 4:00 o'clock at, which
time all students, intending to teach
next year, are requested to be present.
The 'meeting is of importance, and it is
essential that all aspirants having

held in the lecture room in Tappan
All prospective teachers will enroll

The rapid progress shown by the
men, who are appearing regularly for
fencing practice, indicates that a fenc-
