A change in the grading system in
the law department was adopted at
the last meeting of the law faculty.
The new arrangement embodies the
same gradation as that in use in the
other departments, with five letters
in the scale: "A" being excellent, "B"
good, "C" satisfactory, "D" barely
passing, and "E" total failure. Not
more than IS hours of "D" work will
count toward graduation, and only
four hours of this grade will be ac-
cepted in one semester.
It is understood that the change is{
not a result of the agitation started
last year but rather of a desire to adopt
a grade scale which would be in ac-
cordance with the other departments.
The faculty also decided to give one
hour credit for each semester of works
on the Law Review, provided that the f
work is of sufficient merit and is rec-
ommended by Professor Holbrook, ed-
itor of the Law Review.-

Of all the All-Western football elev-
ens picked by western sport critics, it
is probable that Walter Eckersall s
stands first. In making his selecttons
for 1913, Eckersall has placed two
Michigan men on his honorary team,
Craig at left half, and Allmendinger
at right guard.
In commenting on the work of raig,
lac'<ersall say-s:
Although he did not play in every
game, Craig of Michigan is awarded
he left half back position. Craig
went to the rescue of Michigan follow-
ng the defeat by the Michigan Aggies.
He was an important factor in the de-
eats of Syracuse, Cornell, and Penn-
sylvania, the three big games on the
Wolverine schedule.
"Craig was a great offensive player.
,t Ann Arbor he is looked upon as
:he best back since the days of Wil-
lie Heston, one of the greatest playero

Regarding Allmendinger's qualifica-
tions, Eckersall says:
"Allmendinger of Michigan is se-
lected for right guard. In the Penn-
sylvania game he opened large holes
for the backs and went down under
punts in the same manner as Ben-
brook, one of the best guards ever de-
veloped at the Wolverine institution."
Other Al"-W'estern teams have been
picked by various sport writers, but
inasmuch as they vary only in a few
instances, a composite eleven, which
gives positions to the players favored
by the majority, has been compiled by
metropolitan journalists. The com-
posite eleven is herewith printed.

Will Shafroth, '14-'16L, received
word, yesterday, that he had success-
fully passed the Rhodes Scholarship
examina tions from the un iversity of'
Colorado. Shafroth took the exami-
nations in Ann Arbor on October 4,
but his papers were sent to Denver,
his home city, to be corrected, and it
is from this city that he received the
news of his success.
Six students in all successfully pass-
ed the examinations from Colorado,
and Shafroth will not know until he
goes home, Christmas vacation, wheth-
er he will be the one chosen from the
six to go to Oxford.

Allletic Directors Will Change Time
of Elections for Varsity
In order to prevent freshmen who
have only been in the university for
two or three w eeks from voting in
its elections the board of director:
of the athletic association, at its
meeting yesterday afternoon vot-i
ed to hold the election of Varsity base-
ball and track managers in the spring
instead of in the fall as has been theI
custom in the past. The motion, must
h!owever, lie on the table for a week
as it requires a constitutional change.t
In this way the first election ini
which freshmen will have a right toi

and interscholastic managers which
is held in January. Freshmen willt

The board's action was brought
about by the agitation for disfran-t
chisement begun recently. While the
board did not feel that it had the pow-t
er to deprive the freshmen of their'
ballot absolutely, it took this methodr
of disfranchising them for almost a

that year. The building then con-
ed a dining room, a small cafe, two

kers and dinners were given, but
