Eight boxes of valuable fossils have
been received by the university mu-
seum, from the State Geological Sur-

been collected by state geologists and
because of lack of space in the Lan-

here and will be set up and put on

Prof. J. C. Mariam, of the University
of California, has made arrangements
with the museum here, to send it a
skeleton of a Saber tooth tiger and an
extinct wolf, in exchange for valuable

California have control.

A soccer team composed of Michigan
students will this afternoon at 2:30
o'clock clash with the Michigan State
Normal College team from Ypsilanti
on Ferry field, in what is probably the
final game of the year for the local
devotees of the sport. The two teams
have clashed once before this year in
a tie game at the neighboring village,
1 to 1.
A team picked from the local squad
journeyed to Battle Creek Thanksgiv-
ing day, where it defeated the Battle
Creek Normal Training school 1'to 0
'in a hard fought game. The affair had
been arranged as a practice tilt, but
the west starters put up a rather,
strong argument. The only goal was
scored in the first half, when the lo-
cals had a slight edge, the second
half being more evenly played.
Although there has been no regu-
lar schedule for the soccer team this
fall, a surprisingly large number of
men have shown a keen interest in the
sport. The daily practices have av-
eraged more than 20 players in attend-
ance, and an effort will be made to
place the sport on a more stable ba-
sis next year.

Michigan Musical Clubs Receive Offer

A tentative proposal has just been
received from the musical clubs of the
University of Pennsylvania, by the
management of the Glee and Mando-
lin clubs, calling for a combined con-
cert in Detroit on January 1. The

Western Reserve University is the
first university to offer a course in
real estate business, in this country.
Not only will the theory of real es-
tate selling be taught but agents who
are in business will instruct the stu-
dents in the art of conducting a pros-
pective purchaser to a vacant lot and

"The latest trend of college education
is to train students to become' eco-
nomically self sustaining and that Is
one reason why we are offering this
course," said Dean Mathews, secre-
tary of the university, when interview-
ed on the new course. "The establish-
ment of schools of journalism in near-
ly all the universities and colleges is
one instance of it. The idea now is to
turn a college man out at his gradua-
tion equipped to make a living. There
is money in the real estate business;

PROF. TRTEBLOOD ALSO SPEAKS.
CHTCAGO, ILL., Nov. 28.-Professor
F. N. Scott, of the University of Mich-
igan, today advocated a week's in-
struction in newspaper work in the
junior and senior years of the high
school course in a speech before the
National Council of Teachers of Eng-
lish, which is in session here.
The speaker declared that the news-
paper is "the most powerful and per-
suasive influence of our day and na-
tion," not excepting the Bible; and
declared that the press was a greatI
nullifying influence which counteract-
ed the work of educational institu-
tions in grammar and English.
Professor T. C. Trueblood, the oth-
er speaker from the University of
Michigan, contended that slang and
colloquialisms, errors of grammar anc
style, the split infinitive and the dang-
ling participle, could be more easily
corrected than violations of the prin-
ciples of anemity, truth, sincerity, and
