spring practice.
Although the coach refused to com-
mit himself as to the outlook for next
fall, it was evident that he does not
regard the prospects for a successful
season as remote as others who have
openly criticised -the policy of arrang-
ing next fall's heavy schedule.
The coach wa s busy all day Sunday
and Monday conferring with the foot-
ball men at the athletic office, but no
formal meeting was held. Spring
training, according to the present
plan, will begin about April 13, when
the Easter recess closes. Yost will
be here all during this training, and
probably will be in Ann Arbor on
brief visits in the meantime.
The action of the athletic authori-
ties in again securing "Germany"
Schultz to coach the Wolverine for-
wards was heartily commended by
Yost. There was some fear that the
former All-American center would re-
turn to Wisconsin, where he coached
two years before coining here, or per-
haps accept one of the offers made
him by Northwestern and a southern
university.
Yost came to Ann Arbor' directly
from New York, where he attended
the sessions of the football rules com-
mittee. No important changes were
made in the playing code, according
to the Michigan coach. The field
judge official, re-created by the com-
mittee at the option of the teams, will
probably only be used in the big
games next fall, as far as Michigan is
concerned.
The rule prohibiting the coach from
walking on the side lines is ineffect-
ive, according to Yost; as a coach can"
signal from the grand stand as well
as from the field of play. The only,
important change made in the rules is
one suggested by Yost at the session
of last year,when he advocated a ten
yard penalty for the intentional;
grounding of a forward pass. This
was adopted Saturday, as the play
was seen last season in the east, when
West Point adopted the western stylel
of forward passing so successfully
against the Navy.1

Baiseb all Smchednle Is Announced; List
Contains Thirty (lames for
Team
Coincident with the announcement
of Michigan's baseball sche rule for'
tle 1914 season, Coach Carl Lundgren
visited Ann Arbor Sunday to outline
the early work, and Captain Miller
Pontius issued his first call for can-
dGlates.
The pitchers and catchers have
been notified to report this afternoon
at 12:15 o'clock in Waterman gymna-
sium for a light workout although the
cage will not be put up for several
days. Work for the entire squad is
not expected to start before next
week.
Michigan's schedule is practically
the same as last year. Thirty con-
tests are arranged, as against 31 last
spring. The season opens with the
usual southern trip during the Easter
vacation. Notre Dame and the Uni-
versity of Alabama appear as the new
opponents in place of Castle Heights
and the University of the South. On
the eastern trip the usual games with
Princeton, Pennsylvania, Cornell and
Syracuse are to be played, with
Swarthmore substituted for Lehigh.
The home schedule is practically
the same as last season, although
Notre Dame appears on Ferry field
for two games, the first between the
two institutions in several years.
Pittsburg and Washington and Jef-
ferson are the only teams of last year
left off the list. Neither of them
come west this year. Adrian and
Hillsdale colleges have been givenE
their places.
The list of dates follows: -

EXTENSION UPON LIBRARY
IS PROPOSED TO REGENTS
Literary Faculty Asks for Increase in
Budget to Make Room for
3More Books
The building of an extension to the
general library is to be taken up at
the next meeting of the regents. The
literary faculty has petitioned the re-
gents to employ a competent architect
to draw plans for the project and has
also asked for an increase in the lit-
erary budget to allow the purchas(,
of more books for the library.
The idea at present is to build an
extension on the east side of the li-
brary to be used either as
a science roomn or for peri-
odicals ad newspapers for ref-
erence. The storage quarters for
historical books and papers is at pres-
; ent overcrowded and it is probable
that the new addition, if built this
year, may be used as an historical
room.
IAN1 IIALL TOURNAMENT TO

A handball tournament will be stag-
ed in Waterman gymnasinm some
time the first of next week, under the
direction of the athletic association.
Cups will be awarded to the winners,
and about 40 entrants are expected
A meeting of those interested will be
held the last of the week.

MISS SAWTELLE RECOVERING
. FROM ILLNESS AT HOSPITAL
Miss Emma Coy Sawtelle, assistant
physical director of women, who was
taken to the University Hospital last
Thursday suffering with a light at-
tack of diphtheria, is recovering rap-
idly.
The Alpha Epsilon Iota lodge,
where Miss Sawtelle was living when
taken ill, was placed under quaran-
tine, and all the women living there
were treated with antitoxin. No other
cases have developed however, and
the quarantine will be lifted this
morning.

Compromise, the only hope of the
split fraternity factions, materialized
at a meeting of the Inter-Fraternity
Conference held on January 31 The
meeting ended in the practical adop-
tion of a constitution, which will now
form a working basis for all future
legislation. Only' a formal ratifica-
tion yet remains before the new in-
'trument goes into effect. Both par-
ties are believed to be fairly well sat-
isfied ove- the results of the meeting.
The two moot questions which were
finally settled were those concerning
i quorum and the majority necessary
to pass legislation. The majority of
the fraternities held for a quorum
Df a bare majority and a
working majority of the same size.
The smaller faction advocated a quo-
rum of three-fourths and a working
'najority of two-thirds. The compro-
mise settled on two-thirds as a quo-
rum and three-fifths as a working ma-
jority.
Compromise was first broached and
fathered by the minority party, and
the other side quickly fell in with the
suggestion. By the passage of these
two measures the minority gave up
its negative veto, which had been the
bone of contention for so long, thus
depriving' its opponents of the "polit-
eal ring" argument.
The question of rushing rules will
be discussed at the next meeting of
the Conference, which is scheduled
for this evening at 7:30 o'clock.
