Although the regents provided for
only 300 lectures last year, so great
and insistent was the demand for uni-
versity speakers that 25 extra lectures
were given. Up to this date, 285 of this
year's quota have been assigned, and
the remaining fifteen will probably be
awarded to the influential granges
throughout the states Prof. William D.
Henderson, director of the university
extension, has received more than
1,000 requests for lectures from vari-
ous associations throughout the state.
In view of this fact, an attempt is
being made to have various neighbor-
ing associations cooperate for a sin-
gle lecture. In this manner, a greater
number of people will be reached by
the same number of lecturers. One
example of the success of this method
of cooperation is shown by the fact
that seven different organizations of
one town and the surrounding country
combined to hear two lectures.
Perhaps in no other manner, is the
university brought in so close a con-
tact with the tax payers of the com-
monwealth, as it is through the exten-
sion lectures. The people thus met,
are the highest type of citizens and
the tendency is to solidify the people
of the state in their approval of a

"PERIODICALS DEMANDED BY
IDLE WOMEN" SAYS HAPGOOD
Famous Editor Takes Several Flings
at Modern Magazines Before
Journalism Class
"The present demand for periodical
literature is caused mostly by idle and
semi-idle women," said Norman Hap-
good in addressing Prof. Scott's class
in journalism yesterday. According
to Mr. Hapgood, these women desire
magazine literature which is entirely
entertaining and requires no thought.
He decried the tendency in modern
periodical literature to print merely
this second rate fiction. "In looking
at a news stand," said Mr. Hapgood,
"you cannot tell whether it's the
same girl on a-different magazine or a
different girl on the same magazine.
Mr. Hapgood was the guest of Prof.
Scott at lunch yesterday, and left Ann
Arbor in the afternoon.

ATHLETIC BOOKS MUST BE USED

meet at Waterman gymnasium Satur-
day evening will be given out at the
office of the athletic association in
exchange for athletic coupon No. 9.
The coupons may be exchanged any
time before 3:00 o'clock Saturday af-
ternoon, after which the remaining
tickets will be given out to the first
students calling for them.
Only the students holding athletic
books which correspond to the num-
bers drawn by the committee appoint-
ed for the purpose will be given ad-
mission cards, unless some of the
tickets remain uncalled for.
The committee appointed by the

ciation was composed of John B. Helm,
'14L, Maurice L. Toulme, '14L, Walter

Caron, '14, and Lester Rosenbaum, '14.
The numbers were drawn from the
athletic cards of all students excepting
those seniors whose numbers were
chosen for admisison to the Cornell
meet.
The numbers of seniors who will be
given a chance to see the Cornell meet
will later be published and posted by
the athletic association.
Following are the numbers of those
who may exchange their coupons for

George H. Sisler, '15E, of Clinton,
0., was yesterday afternoon elected
Varsity baseball captain to succeed
"Brute" Pontius, who resigned owing
to scholastic difficulties.
Sisler was the star pitcher of the
Wolverines last season, and also the
leading batsman, his hitting ability
being such that he was used in left
field when not on the mound.
Eleven votes were cast in the elec-
tion, Captain Bell, Rogers and Webber
of last year's team, none of whom are
in the university at this time, being'
the only eligible electors not present
at the meeting yesterday.
Although the choice was made in a
closed ballot, it was announced that
the vote was so decisive that had the
three absentees all voted for the can-
didate having the next largest number
of votes the result would have been
unchanged.
While the veterans were holding the
election Coach Lundgren put the re-
cruits through the regular fielding
practice. There were no, more broken
windows, as nettings have been
stretched over the windows of the gym.
Lundgren is now planning a parti-
tion in the baseball cage in order that
he may use four sets of pitchers and
batters simultaneously in the batting
practices.
Professor Allen to Speak in Lansing
Prof. John R. Allen, of the engineer-

AS LAST HOPE,
Trainer Farrell, Facing an Alarming
Dearth of Varsity Material
Makes Final Call For
Candidates
FEW ENTRIES ARE X1AiE FOR
FRESH-SOPH MEET SATURDAY
Barteline, Kohler, and Haff are Among
Speakers Who Will Address
Meeting Tonight
Track men will meet in Waterman

response to a call issued by Trainer
Farrell and Captain Kohler for more
men to fill out the roster of 1914 Var-
sity candidates.
Postal cards have not been sent.
out, as was first planned, but
the members of the track com-
mittee and the team have been
doing personal missionary work.
All men known to have talent in
any field of track work have been
approached and urged to attend the
meeting.
It ishoped that any men who have
not been approached, but who have
ever taken part in track work will
also come to the meeting. Freshmen
track athletes are also requested to
be present.
The speakers will outline the track
situation, and emphasize the immedi-
ate need for more men. Director Bar-
telme will probably speak of the
schedule, and Trainer Farrell of the
team that he will need to make a re-
spectable showing. Captain Kohler and
ex-Captair_ "Hap" H1aff will also talk
to the candidates.
Tonight's meeting will be the last
effort of the authorities to arouse in-
terest in Varsity track athletics this
season, and the fate of this year's team
appears to the authorities to hinge on
tonight's gathering.
Few entries for the Fresh-Soph meet
Saturday have been made, but possibly
the shifting of the date from March 7
to February 28 is partially responsi-
ble for this condition. An attempt to
arouse interest in this meet will be
made tonight, but the emphasis will be
placed on the dearth' of material for
the Varsity.

Carl G. Schoeffel, '13-'15L, was
charged with assault on a warrant
preferred by Mrs. F. J. Webb, Oakland
avenue, yesterday afternoon. Upon
hearing of the warrant Schoeffel vol-
untarily appeared in court and submit-
ted to the jurisdiction of the court.
According to Schoeffel, the trouble
arose when he attempted to secure
several trunks from the residence of
the complainant, "which were being
illegally detained."
Schoeffel denies the charges, andr
states that he will fight the case in the
justice court and in the circuit court
if necessary, and has retained Attor-
ney George W. Sample, to defend him.
P.M. Godehn, '15L, and Schoeffel,act-
ing for the parties in interest, sued out
a writ of replevin last night and secur-
ed the trunks.

the athletic committee of the women's
league, asking that the women athletes
of the university be given the right to
use some type of M insignia, will today
be sent to the committee for consid-
eration. Until the committee has been
appraised of the terms of the proposal
of the directorate, the action of yes-
terday will not be made public.
This course was determined upon
by the board members out of consider-
ation to the wishes of toe women's
league, who had expressed a desire
to avoid any more of the public crit-
icism which has followed the presen-
tation of their petition. It is stated
that the terms of the board's action
will be made public some time today.

in room 108, N.W. Profs. . L. Markley
and L. C. Karpinski, of the mathe-
matics faculty, will open today's meet-
ing with a discussion of famous prob-
lems of mathematics and problems of
personal experiences.
According to present plans, meetings
will be held bi-monthly. The main dis-
cussions will be led by members of

taken a course in analytical geometry.
"The aim of the club is to promote
interest in mathematics, as a study,
and to further social intercourse be-
tween students who are interested in
mathematical problems," said Profes-
sor Karpinsl'i, who is one of the pro-
moters of the organization. "We shall
discourage faculty attendance at these
meetings, because the club is primari-

Orville Westerman, instructor in
boxing, has been added to the coach-
ing force at Waterman gymnasium.
No prize bouts or exhibition matches
will be given under Westerman, for the
sport will not be taken up as an inter-
class or interdepartmental branch of
athletics.
The new coach will devote his entire
time to individual instruction for
those students who care to take up
the work. This is the first time in
many years that boxing has been con-
ducted under university management.
Westerman has had more than 10
years experience in boxing,having stud'

of the country. At Chicago he studied
