Editor, The Michigan Daily:-
By a direct student vote for the student
members of the board in control of
athletics, the students would really
have their opinions represented. If
the students' opinions were not fol-
lowed out under such a system as
we propose, the next election would

Michigan's 1914 baseball team will
suffer a loss, through the decision of
Charles Webber, '14, Varsity catcher,
to leave the university at the end ofj
the present semester.
Webber leaves college to take a po-
sition under the State Eugenics com-
mission, in charge of H. W. Crane,
former instructor in the psychology
department. Webber will be stationed
at the State Industrial School for
Boys at Lansing, where he will have
eight months' work in applying the
Binet test for defective mentality.
Though the Varsity catcher will
leave the Michigan team with only one
veteran receiver, Baer, he will not be
lost forever to Michigan athletics, as
he plans to re-enter the university in
the fall of 1914 and graduate in June,
1915. He will thus be eligible to
play baseball on the 1915 nine.

Light Practice Is to Be Taken Until
Semester Examinations Are
Passed.
REL AY MEN MAY ( TO BOSTON
Waterman gymnasium was invad-
ed yesterday afternoon by the host of
aspirants for track fame. Trainer
Farrell was kept busy taking names,
listing the events in which the candi-
dates are interested, and outlining the
course of training for each.,
Most of the trtack men will prac-
tice only three etimes a week before
the examinations, as Farrell has im-
pressed upon them the- prime neces-
sity of passing their codrses. The only
branch of the track work that will be
p shed hard before ; the end of the
semester will be the relays.
There has been some talk of Mich-
igan's sending a relay team to the
Boston Athletic association meet in
the middle of February, but nothing
has been definitely decided on this
point. Entrance in this meet would
afford practice to the relay runners in
actual comaetition and prepare them
for the bigger relay events in which
the two-mile team will defend its ti-
tle as champions at the distance.
Three members of the record break-
ing two-mile team are back in school
this year and are working out daily.
Jansen is a valuable man in both the
quarter mile and the half mile, as is
Haff, last year's captain, who, although
a graduate, is eligible to compete at
the Pennsylvania relay carnival. Both
men are practicing at the half mile dis-
tance, however, as there is more ma-
terial for the two mile team than for
the mile. Brown, the captain of the
cross country team, is the third veter-
an of the two-mile squad. Lamey,
Plummer, Uffer, Murphy, and Carver
will all contend to complete the quar-
tet.
Material exists in the university this
season to form a good mile relay team
outside of Jansen and Haff. With Craig
back on the cinders, and Catlett from
last year's All-Fresh, there would be

PICK CAST DEFINITELY TONIGHT
By granting the petition of the opera
management, the senate council at its
meeting last night, allowed the 1914
Michigan Union show to be held a
week earlier than last year. The an-
nual performance will appear on the
Whitney boards, March 18, 19, 20, and
21. This is the second week before
spring vacation, and by the change of
dates the opera men will .be able to ar-
range tour during the latter part of
the weak immediately preceding the
annual recess.
Although the matter has not been
definitely mapped, tentative plans in-
dicate that if faculty permission is re-
ceived, the opera men will journey to
Detroit and Chicago. Letters from
alumni in both centers show that the
opera would receive the necessary sup-
port.
The cast will. be definitely chosen at
the tryout to be held at the Union at
7:00 o'clock tonight. Seventeen parts
will be filled from a list of about 25.
