FRESH TO ATTEND
'FIRST AID' TALKS
First Year Men Will Be Instructed in
Steps to Take in Case
DEMONSTRATIONS WILL BE HELD
Beginning next semester all fresh-
men will be obliged to attend a series
of lectures on "first aid," along with
the required gymnasium work. The
regents have arranged for a course o
talks on this subject to be given by
members of the medical department.
The purpose of the course is to fa-
miliarize the first year men with the
simplest measures to be taken in time
of sudden accident, especially in re-
viving fainting or drowning persons.
The course will probably consist of
seven or eight illustrated lectures with
frequent demonstrations to be held in
The "Michigan method" of sustenta-
tion of the apparently drowned will
be taught. This method was first con-
ceived by a medical student in the
university some years ago, but no pub-
licity was ever given to this method.
Several years ago Dr. Shafer, an Eng-
lishman, in lecturing to the medical
students, demonstrated this method
and it is now more commonly known
as the "Shafer method."

terday, the Union made the biggest
one-day stride since the beginning of
the campaign. This makes a total of

at least within striking distance of the
1,000 mark. Returns from all of the
classes will be received tonight, and
all committeemen are urged to hand in
their reports at 7:00 o'clock. Most of
the cards to be received are from the
underclassmen, although some of the
senior and junior campaigners have
not yet made their final reports.

included in last night's report: '17

THAW MAKES HOCJEYISTS QUIT
Engineer-L#,w Men Are Declared to Be
the Campus Leaders
Warm weather has compelled man-
ager Glenny of the hockey league to
cancel all the remaining games sched-
uled to be played. This arrangement
gives the engineer-law team first
place with the fresh engineers second,
and the lits and the science teams
tied for third. Men on the first two
teams will receive their numerals for
the season's work.
Owing to the fact that some of the
teams have played games not arranged
for by either Director Rowe or man-
ager Glenny, those in charge arbitrar-
fly fixed the standings of the teams
as follows: engineer-laws, won 3 and
lost 0; fresh engineers, won 2 and
lost 1; the lits and the science team
each have lost 2 and won 0.
Church and Milard Get Appointments

of student publications at its meeting
yesterday afternoon. Church will now

Milard will act as second assistant to
the business manager.
A committee was also chosen by the
board to formulate a rule concerning
free pages in the Michiganensian;
whether there shall be free pages, and
if so how many and by whom to be em-
ployed. Free pages, varying in num-
ber, have been customary in the past.

Ex-Congressman G. J. Diekema, of
Holland, Mich., will speak on the reg-
ular Union Sunday program to-
morrow at 3:00 o'clock. His subject
will be "Railroad Arbitration." His
work during the past few months in
Chicago as government arbitrator, be-
tween the Chicago, Burlington and
Quincy and its trainmen, has given
him much valuable first hand infor-
mnation on the subject.

Piloted by five committees the
plans for the Joan D'Arc pageant are
rapidly nearing completion. The prob-

management for several months has
finally been committed to the hands
of Bert St. John, who after a confer-
ence with Prof. A. H. Kenyon seems
assured that all the requirements can
be satisfactorily arranged in Detroit
instead of in New York. Designs for the
banners in the pageant are already in
hand and the work on them will ber
As contemplated now the pageant
will be divided into five acts or scenes,.
the old idea of floats and procession
like displays being done away with as
far as possible. The first scene will
portray Joan's early life before herc
being called; the second will depict a
court scene; the third shows the siege
of Orleans; the fourth represents the'
coronation of Charles VII; and the
fifth portrays the death of Joan D'Arc.
Fer the peasant dances and the.
court balls Earl Moore is writing con-
temioraneous music, especially for the
songs of the monks and friars. In-
strumental music is also being com-

'OPERA POSTER PLATES ARl
In speaking of the new campus or-
ganization last night Professor Kar-
pinski said: "Our object is to estab-
lish a social intercourse between stu-
dents of mathematics .in the literary
department and create a keener inter-
est in the historical and human side
of the study of mathematics."
A committee has been chosen to
formulate a constitution for the soci-
ety and as soon as this is completed
another meeting will be held and offi-
cers will be elected. The society will
be run entirely by the students and
any person enrolled in the literary de-
partment is eligible for membership.

FRESH-SOPH TICKETS GO SLOWLY
General Distribution Will Be Made of
the Tickets Today
When the returns at 5:00 o'clock
-last evening at -the athletic associa-
tion office showed that 'but 75 tickets
for tonight's fresh.-soph meet had been
called for, it became certain that the
general distribution of the passes this
afternoon would be unusually large.
Unless an unexpectedly heavy de-
mand is made this morning, it is ex-
pected that between 200 and 300 tick-
ets will be ready for distribution when
the time limit expires at 3:00 o'clock.
The small demand made thus far
will enable many freshmen and soph-
omores, otherwise barred from the
meet, to see their favorites in action.
