Graves.

INTERCLASS MANAGERS TO
ARRANGE FOR RELAY SERIES
A meeting of the interclass track
managers will be held at Waterman
gymnasium, Monday afternoon at 5:00
o'clock, to make arrangements for the
coming relay series. tn
It is probable that the percentage
system, as used in the football series
last fall, will be repeated, as this
method seems to be more accurate in
determining the strongest teams, and
offrsi wore than one team from a de-
partment a chance to win their num-
erals.
Fr, a pre-season outlook, the sen-
ior lits appear 'to have material for
the fastest team, having such men as
Bond, Seward, Jansen, and White at
their disposal.
There is some talk, however, of en-
forcing a rule to the effect that "M"
men be barred from participation in
class track athletics.
SENIOR LITS WILL HOLD "I"
DINNER ON NEXT THURSDAY
Senior lits will have an "M" dinner
at the Union on Thursday, February
19. All the speakers will be senior
lits who have won their "M's." James

E. Bond will act as toastmaster, and
Perry Howard and Roy H. Torbet will
respond with talks. Prof S. F. Gin-
gerich, of the English department, will
represent the -faculty.
Other social events planned are a
"Soft-Collar Dance" on March 2, a
combined dinner with the senior engi-
neerswon March 17, and a "Cafeteria
Hop" in April.
Dean Guthe Discusses New Spelling
Prof. Karl E. Guthe, dean of the
graduate school, is in Lansing today,
representing the university at a con-
ference called to discuss the status
of the simplified spelling movement in
the colleges of the state and the uni-
versity. Dean Guthe will return to
Ann Arbor tonight.

SOME RECENT INNOVATIONS

Loss of Two Catchers Only
Problem to Be
Solved

Real

Burlesque of Balcony Scene
"Romeo and Juliet," Is
Ludicrous Number

From

Sustaining the loss of only one out-
fielder and two catchers from last
year's winning combination, Michigan
should have the greatest team this
season which ever represented her on
the diamond.
With a sensational hurling staff and
a dashing infield left intact, Coach
Carl Lundgren does not have to face
the task of building up a new combi-
nation.
With Captain Pontius on first, Mc
Queen at the keystone position, Hugh-
itt at short, and Baker on third the
Wolverines will start the year with
an experienced primary line of de-
fense.,
Cory and Sheehy, of last year's reg-
ular outfield, are both expected to re-
tain their places. Ex-Captain Joe Bell
will be missed for his hard-hitting and
base running, -but in Howard, Lund-
gren has a valuable utility man who
won his letter for two years by consis-
tent work both on first base and in
the outfield.
With Howard filling up the gardens,
and the pitching staff augmented with
many youngsters, only the catching
department will present a serious
problem.
The loss of Rogers and Webber
would prove a serious one, were it not
for the fact that Baer performed" so
consistently during the latter part of
last year following the injury to Rog-
ers. Hippler, of last year's squad, is
another player who is naturally looked
for to fill the one hole in this year's
Wolverine battlefront.
Lansing Graduate Died Saturday
Patrick H. Dolan, '74L, a prominent
Lansing attorney, died there last Sat-
urday.
FRESH TRACKMEN
WILL BE SELECTED
Trainer Farrell's innovation in the
nature of a track meet tomorrow af-
ternoon, limited to freshmen, will give
him a definite line on the worth of the
material in that class.
The squad out for track work from
the first year class has been unusually
large this year, so that it has been
impossible to give attention to them
all.
Three or four men will be picked
from the leaders in each event, and
will receive their training instruc-
tions direct from Farrell., while the
less stellar performers will be taken
over by Director Rowe. In the sprints
the number will probably exceed all
other events, as there are more run-
ners in this department, and better
chance to watch a larger number on
the gym floor track.
Farrell hopes for a large entry list
for the meet, and will keep the entries
open until Saturday afternoon. The
first event is to be called at 2:45
o'clock, with Trainer Farrell as start-
er, and Dr. May as clerk of course.
Fraternities Must Clean Sidewalks
Disregard of the city ordinance pro-
viding for all sidewalks to be cleaned
off two hours after a snow storm ceas-
es may lead to complications between
the civil authorities and certain resi-
dents of the university section of the
city.
Complaints having been made by
citizens against several fraternity
houses have resulted in notices being
sent to the delinquents by the police
department.

Hits from the annual comic operas
of all universities will be featured at
the big popular concert to be staged
by the Michigan Glee and Mandolin
club in Hill auditorium; Tuesday ev-
ening, February 24. The scores of past
Union operas, as well as those receiv-
ed from other schools, have been
scoured for features.
A burlesque of the balcony scene
from "Romeo and Juliet" will be one
of the innovations. Roy Parsons, '14,
who sang "Jerry Bones" in last year's
Union opera, will go through the mo-
tions as the fair Juliet, while Kenneth
Westerman, '14, will play the part of
the amorous Romeo. The number is
described as so ludicrous that it has
almost broken up the Glee club re-
hearsals at which it has been prac-
ticed.
Waldo Fellows, '14, will unfold some
new stunts. Harold Schradzki, '15L,
has written some parodies on recent
popular songs, which will be sung by
Fellows. The Sobley of "Contrarie
Mary" will also revive "I Might," the
topical hit which was the hit of "Ko-
anzaland."
Tickets for the concert will go on
sale at Wahr's, Sheehan's and the Un-
ion this morning. All seats will be
sold for 25 cents. At the last concert
given by the Glee and Mandolin club,
in November, when higher prices were
charged, a large portion of the 5,000
seats were taken.
Detroit Draftsmen Hear Prof. Lorb
Prof. Emil Lorch, head of the architec-
ture department, lectured last night
before the Detroit Atlzlier, a school of
architectural draftsmen, on the work
in architecture that will be done by
the university extension courses.
WILL HOLD BAND
DANCE THURSDAY
The band dance, which will be held
in Barbour gymnasium February 19,
is one of the means used by the reor-
ganized band to make itself a perma-
nent institution at Michigan. The
band needs new lightweight uniforms
for the baseball games and concerts
this spring, and the proceeds of this
dance will be devoted to this purpose.
The entire band will be present to
furnish the music, and it will be di-
vided into two .parts, which will re-
lieve each other and afford continuous
music. The chaperones for the dance
will be Dean J. R. Effinger and Mrs.
Effinger, Dean V. C. Vaughan and Mrs.
Vaughan, and Mr. O. C. Markwardt of
the rhetoric department, and Mrs.
Marckwardt. The price of the tickets
has been set at 75 cents.'
ST. JOHN MAY LEAD REHEARSALS
General Chairman Confers With Him
Today at Detroit
General Chairman Karl B. Hoch, '14,
of the Union opera, leaves for Detroit
this afternoon to consult with Director
Bert St. John in regard to staging the
show. While in the city he will also
confer with W. Ray Melton, '13, au-
thor of the play.
The cast will meet Monday and
Tuesday nights, when Bert St. John
will be present. The conference in
Detroit today will decide whether or
not he will remain in Ann Arbor from
then on to take personal charge of the
rehearsals. The chorus will hold a re-
hearsal Wednesday night.

BIG CIRCUS TODAY
Rare animals, curi9sities of all
kinds, gypsy fortune tellers, and many
other attractions will feature the an-

important of the Friday afternoon en-
tertainments given during the year by
the women's league.

AGITATION FO
CLUBHOUSE

2

Because of the failure of the com-
mittee in charge of the Washington
birthday exercises in securing a prom-
inent speaker, this custom has been
diverted from, and an all-class ban-
quet, to be held Saturday night, Feb-
ruary 21, will be substituted in its
place.
Invitations have been sent out, by
the committee in charge of the ban-
quet, to Mr. J. T. Keena, of Detroit,
and Chief Justice Steere, of Lansing,
to speak at the banquet.1
Tickets for the banquet will be on
sale today in the hands of the commit-1
teemen of the three classes.
In speaking of the breaking of the
custom of the public meeting yester-
day, Ralph Snyder, who is in chargel
said, "In the future the law faculty
will have the selection of the annual
speaker under their control, so that
no delay, as occurred this year, will
happen again."
ORGANIZES WEEKLY CLASSES
TO STUDY COSMOPOLITANISM'
Weekly study classes will be held
by the Cosmopolitan club on Sundays"
at 4:00 o'clock in McMillan hall under
the leadership of Prof. J. A. C. Hild-
ner, of the German department. The
class will take as subjects for study
representative books on cosmopolitan-
ism and disarmament.
The organization of the study was
decided upon at the meeting of the
club last Saturday. Books to be used
will be such works as Norman An-!
gell's "Great Illusion," Mahan's "Ar-
maments and Arbitration," Finot's
"Race Prejudice," Novikow's "War and'
its Alleged Benefits." and Clarke's

BEARING FRi
Seventeen Men Sign Applicationq
Union Life Membership
Without Being
Requested
For Michigan Men Everyw

The seemingly impossible has hap-
pened-a college play has been staged
with hardly a trace of amateurism.
This unique record belongs to the Uni-
versity of Michigan Comedy club, for
its thirtieth annual production which
took place. last night at the Whitney
theater. That the offering was Percy
Mackaye's fantastic, "The Scarecrow,"
makes the result little short of re-
markable.
The audience that greeted the play-
ers was the largest that ever attend-
ed a Comedy club performance. By
8:00 o'clock practically every seat in
the house had been sold. The appear-
ance of Prof. Albert A. Stanley in the
conductor's box was the signal for the
applause, which increased after a
hearing of the noble incidental music
composed for the occasion by Profes-
sor Stanley.
The acting left little room for im-
provement. As Blacksmith Bess, Phyl-
lis Povah, entered into the spirit of
her role so heartily that her pact with
the devil appeared not improbable.
The part of his satanic majesty was
acted with rare skill by Harold Nut-
ting, stamping him as one of the best
character actors on the campus. To
the lot of Thomas Murphy fell the dif-
ficult role of Lord Ravensbane, whose
apostrophe to himself in the mirror
was given with a fine feeling of self-
renunciation. Louis K. Friedman
made a sympathetic Richard, Mary
True, an appealing Rachel, while Wal-
do Fellows infused humor and dignity
into their respective roles.
Whatever success "The Scarecrow"
achieved, is due in great measure toI
the club's manager and director, Ar-
thur Cohen, whose untiring energy and
skill made themselves evident even to
the ninutest detail. He has every
reason to be proud of the result of his
efforts.
