Several Michigan men took advnm
tage of the summer vacation to visit
foreign countries. Ralph Snyder,
'14L, who with Russel Judson, '14,
toured England and the Continent,
said last night:
"By taking advantage of cheap tick-
ets and using passes, we were able to
make the trip for $150 apiece. Going
over we passed a huge ice-berg within
a few miles of where the Titantic dis-
aster occurred. We visited Belgiuin,
Holland, Germany, France, England,
and Ireland, meeting several Michigan
men abroad, and we found our Union
pins of great assistance in making
acquaintances. At a dance in Paris
we met Jim Watkins, and had quite a
reunion, until the entrance of Jack
Johnson broke it up. At the Louvre
we saw Professor Pillsbury and Mrs.
Pillsbury." Snyder and Judson also
inet Wn. Allard, 'ilL, and Hl. Clark,
Claire Straith, '17M, who went
across the ocean in a cattle boat re-
ports a fine time in England, Belgium,
and France. In Paris he met Coach
Yost. Straith estimated the cost of
the trip as less than $125.
Frazer Clark, '15, also was abroad
and saw Jim Watkins and Earl Moore
in Paris. All the men who went
abroad were enthusiastic about their
experiences and think that more Mich-
igan students should spend their sum-
iners in this way,

BOARD IN CONTROL
TO CONSIDER BAND
The fate of the University band will
be settled at the meeting of the Board
in Control of Athletics which will be
held on the eleventh of this month.
As things stand now the band is hold-
ing out for partial scholarships for
the different members, or a money
payment for part of their tuition from
the athletic association. The student
subscription taken up in former years
have generally proved unsuccessful,
and the board of regents, not wish-
ing to create any precedents, has re-
fused to take any action on the mat-
The band which will attend the Case
game will not be the regular Varsity
band of former years, but will consist
of musicians paid for this special

fine material in the University at the
present time' for a band of twenty
pieces, which is the maximum number
that partial scholarships are now de-

ROBT. UDY'S RECEN T DE ATH
As a result of the death of Robert
Udy, '17, of Bluefield, W., Va., who died
Wednesday morning from blood pois-
oning contracted in a barber shop in
Bluefield, the University Health Ser-
vice officials will correspond with the
health officer of Bluefield and explain
the nature of his death. By thus
bringing to light the unsanitary con-
dition of the barber shop in which
Udy contracted the disease, the Uni-
versity Health Service aims to extend
its usefulness beyond the city of Ann
Lockers to be Sold for Fall Season.
As soon as the Varsity football, ten-
nis and track men are taken care of,
lockers at the Ferry field house can
be secured for the fall season ending
November 15, at $1.00 each.
The new club house when completed
will have free lockers' and cold show-
ers for all.
STUIDENTS DRAFT DE LUXE
MAP FOR BUSINESS MEN.
The enterprise of a couple of Mich-
igan students has resulted in the
publication of a de luxe map of Ann
Arbor, for the use' of business men.
About fifty of thes* maps were put
out during the summer,-wholly the
work of James Hurley and John P.
Parsons, late of the literary depart-
ment, now freshman medics. The
map gives the number of all lots and
additions, and the owners of all as
yet unplatted, including several out-
side the city. While the printing is
not all that was desired, the work is
well executed; and the authors con-
template extending their idea to other
towns in this vicinity. A zinc etching,
reduced, is now being prepared for
the exclusive use of real estate men.
FORESTRY DEPARTMENT TO
STRENG THEN CURRICULUM,
Six new courses have been added
to the forestry department this year.
Course 3 in identification of woods and
Course 23 in forest protection are
merely enlargements of similar work
done last year. However, the courses
in woodlots and forest parks, forest
improvements, silvicultural practice
in the Lodgepole and the Douglas Fir
types, Forestry for civil engineers,
and forestry for teachers are new this
year, and with the new facilities for
thorough instruction, both in the lab-
oratory and in the field the depart-
ment is holding its own, if not sur-
passing such standard forest schools,
as the Biltmore, and Yale.

MANAGERS '"THE LIGHT ETERNAL" CO., Majestic Theatre, New York City:
Gentlemen: I witnessed the excellent presentation of "The Light Aternal"
on Thursday night with great satisfaction and profit. When I compare it with the
religious plays I have already witnessed and criticised, notably "Ben-Hur," "Quo
Vadis," "The Shepherd King,"and "The Sign of the Cross,"y.i feel "The Light
Eternal" is to be preferred to any of them. There are in this play no scenes of revelry
so repulsive to the Christian mind, and which I so severely censured in "The Sign
of the Cross," although that play was endorsed by the Archbishop of Canterbury
and the late Mr. Gladstone. And yet "The Light Eternal" conveys the same teach-
ings and gives us a graphic delineation of the spirit of martyrdom which establish-
ed the Christian religion as a great historic fact before the days of Constantine.

"The Light Eternal" was presented at the Whitney Theater, Ann Arbor, on April 19 and 20,
1911, and again on Feb. 5th, 1912, by the same cast to be seen here Wednesday. This
attraction merits the support of every theatre goer and church member of Ann Arbor.
