in Alumni Memorial hall which are
open to the public. He is the guest
of President Harry B. Hutchins.
He has spent 17 years in the East
Indian colonies as advisor on Moham-
medanism and native affairs to the
Dutch East Indian government. Speak-
ing Arabic, he has been able to take
the pilgrimage to Mecca and remain
there a year studying the phases of
Mohammedanism. It was through his
diplomacy that the long Atche war
was brought to an end.
Dr. Snouck-Hungronje taught the
Malay languages and Mohammedan
law as applied to native custom law
in the Leyden school.. He is lecturing
in this country under the auspices of
the American History of Religions
committee.
The lectures will start Monday at

ER 20 FRESHMEN
DETROIT TRACK

WILL CANVAITI
FOR ME

MEET

and Narrow Cir-
id Fair for

Twenty fresh track men will leave
for Detroit tomorrow afternoon to take
part in the dual meet with the Detroit
Y. M. C. A. in the evening.
The straight-away in the Detroit
gymnasium is only 25 yards in length,
10 yards shorter than the one at Wat-
erman gymnasium. The men carried
to run in short dash are: O'Brien, Her-
rick, Ziegler and Fontanna. O'Brien is
the speediest of the group and should
have no trouble in snatching a first
from the Detroit boys.
Only two men, Steven and Donnelly
will be carried for the quarter mile,
and itis expectedrthat the opposition
will limit their entries in this event
to the same number, as the running
track is extremely narrow. The half
mile and mile will be limited to the
same number. Gregory and Kohr will
run for the all fresh in the half, and
Carroll and Crauman in the mile.
Corbin and Thurston will take care
of both the high and low hurdles. Wat-
erbury, Davis, and Butler will be car-
ried for the high jump; Skinner, Bai-
ley, and Kessler for the pole vault, and
Cross, Edwards, and Leach for the
shot put.
Alumnus Delayed by Western Material
The Los Angeles and Medical num-
ber of the Alumnus will not be out
before March 16. Work on this issue
has been delayed, owing to the fact
that the Los Angeles association has
been slow in sending in material.

The Michigan Aero club may hold
a gilder meet with a similar organiza-
tion at Cornell in the near future, as
correspondence between the two clubs
is now being carried on to determine
the date and place of the meet. The
local organization will attempt to beat
the Cornell record of three miles with
a towed glider.
Construction on the new glider is:
progressing rapidly. The design was
made by F. E. Loudy, '15E, and L. C.
Wilcox, '16E. The upper span will be
40 feet, from tip to tip. The craft will
be built so that a motor can be install-
ed with little difficulty.
The club has promised to give an
exhibition flight at the time of the
Boat club regatta. In addition, it has
arranged to build 10 or 11 models of
gliders for the engineering exhibit in
the spring. The promise of the use of
Donald Gregory's famous power air
machine, for display purposes, has
been procured for the exhibit.
FEED SODIUM SULPHITE TO
MEDICS FOR ANOTHER WEEK
The government test for albumen that
is being undertaken by the medical fra-
ternities, will be continued until the
middle of the month, according to Dr.
J. H. Agnew of the medical depart-
ment. The students have been eating
sodium sulphite with each meal for
several weeks, and as yet no traces of
albumen have been found.
This negative result seems to prove
that canned goods into which sulphur
has been injected as a preservative
are not injurious to the consumer.
This test is being conducted to deter-;
mine whether manufacturers using
sulphur in their products are liable to,
prosecution under the Food and Drugs
Act of June 30, 1906.]
A A CIA 1WILL DE AICATE NEW
HOME TODAY AND TOMORROW
Acacia fraternity will dedicate its
new home on State street today and
tomorrow. The formal dedication will
be held tomorrow from 4:00 o'clock
until 6:00 o'clock, followed by a ban-
quet in the evening.
A reception to the faculty and their
wives, to the Craftsmen, to the fra-
ternities and sororities will be held
this afternoon from 4:00 until 6:00
o'clock. A formal party will be held
this evening.

All

According to an announcement made
yesterday by athletic association offi-
cials, admission to the interclass meet
tomorrow will be free to all students
of the university. It is probable, how-
ever, that should the crowd promise
to be over the 500 limit prescribed for
Waterman gymnasium, that restric-
tions will be placed on the admissions.
The next meet at which it will be
necessary to use the athletic associq-
tion pass books will be the Varsity
meet on March 21. Drawings will be
made, similar to those for the Fresh-
Soph clash, and the lucky numbers
will be posted. Whileu less than 150
of the numbers drawn for the meet of
last Saturday were claimed by the
holders, it is believed that the new
system is a success, and it is the in-
tention of the athletic officials to fol-
low it throughout the remainder of
the indoor season. The drawings for
the Cornell meet have already been
made, but are not to be announced
till near the time of the holding of the
event on March 28.
CHURCHES START COMBINED
6:30 SERVICE FOR SUNDAY
Dan Poling, of Columbus, 0., secre-
tary of the National Board of Chri-
tian Citizenship and Temperance, will
address a union service of the Baptist,
Congregational, Presbyterian and
Church of Christ churches next Sun-
day evening at 6:30 o'clock in the
Presbyterian church. This service will
inaugurate a new series in which
churches of Ann Arbor will combine to
bring speakers for 6:30 o'clock Sun-
day evening services.
Mr. Angell Will Organize Peace Club
Norman Angell, the noted English
peace advocate who speaks here on
April 15, will attempt to organize a
small club at Michigan purely for the
discussion of international affairs.
Within the last few years, Mr. Angell
has been organizing small clubs in all
parts of England, from Cambridge and
Oxford to the mill towns.

Will Be Admitted to Gymnasium
Until Five Hundred Mark
Is Reached

The women's glee club will play in
Jackson tonight, in the first out of
town performance that the organiza-
tion has ever undertaken. The con-
cert will be given in the Episcopal
guild house of that city.
Twenty-eight women will make the
trip and will be chaperoned by Mrs.
James P. Bird, wife of the secretary
of the engineering department, who
will give several readings on the pro-
gram. The entertainment will fea-
ture songs from the junior girls play
and the operas. The principal soloists
are Helen Lohman, '14, president of
the club and Jean Boyce, '14.
The trip is made under the auspices
of the Tourist club of Jackson, which
will entertain the club during its stay.
RUSHING RULES DECLARED
OFFICIAL BY CONFERENCE
New Methods Formed by Prof. Lloyd
and Fraternities Go Into
Effect in 1915
The new rushing rules, adopted at a
recent meeting of the Inter-Fraternity
Conference and which provide for new
regulations in the pledging of freshmen
in the university, were announced as
official at a meeting of the conference
last night through the receipt of a
communication from Prof. A. H. Lloyd,
chairman of the committee on non-'
athletic organizations, the body to'
which the rules had been referred.3
The new rules go into effect during
the 'school year of 1915.
The communication from Professor
Lloyd and which was in the nature
of a letter to the conference, congrat-
ulated the fraternities on the stand
which had been taken in the matter
of reforming the old rushing rules.
The session of the conference last
night was one of the three regulari
meetings held each year, and transact-f
ed no other business than that off
hearing the communication from thec
non-athletic committee.
MUSEUM TO RECEIVE TIGER
SKELETON FROM CALIFORNIA
The director of the University Mu-
seum has received advices from the
University of California of the ship-
ment of the skeleton of a sabre-tooth
tiger, consigned to the University of
Michigan. The skeleton, which is oneE
of several secured by Professor J. C.,
Merriam from the asphalt deposits at
Rancha La Brea, California, is to be
given to the university in exchange
for some of the Permian material that
was collected by the university expe-
dition in Texas, last summer.
COSMOPOLITAN COMMITTEES
FOR SPRING TRIPS CHOSEN,
Members of the Cosmopolitan clubc
are planning a trip for spring vacation.
Prof. J. A. C. Hildner, William Welsh,
'12, and W. C. Achi, '14, constitute the
special committee to arrange the itin-
erary. C. P. Wang, '14, is to secure
the speakers for the various banquets,t
and P. K. Chan, '15E, will assist in
providing the musical numbers and
other stunts on the programs.
The Grand Rapids Board of Com-t
merce has invited the organization to
spend two days there. Members off
the junior association will entertain
them, and a meeting will be held at
the high school.

DEAN HANDS JOLT
TO HONOR SYSTEM
A ban on the honor system was de-
creed by Dean Victor C. Vaughan, of
the medical department, when he for-
bade its continuance in the freshman
medic class yesterday. ,He says that
cheating was indulged in by several
members of that class during an ex-
amination in Dr. G. Carl Huber's class
in nervous anatomy last Saturday.
The names of the alleged offenders
have not come to light, so that no dis-
missals have been made as yet. Ac-
cording to Dr. Vaughan, should the
offenders confess, or should the class
divulge their names, immediate rein-
statement of the system will be effect-
ed.
Rumors to the effect that cheating
was going on, have reached the ears
of Dr. Vaughan since the adoption of
the, honor system by the class last
fall. Nothing, however, which he con-
sidered substantial evidence has been
obtained up to this time. In all prob-
ability, the class will hold a meeting
soon to decide what action to take on
the matter.
HEATING TESTS WILL BE
CONDUCTED BY ENGINEERS
A test, to determine the comparative
efficiency of two house-heating boilers,
will be conducted by four. advanced
engineering students today. 'Other ad-
vanced students are conducting tests
in the mechanical laboratory to deter-
mine how fast heat will pass through
walls. A special thermometer, which
will register one-hundredth of a de-
gree, will be used in these tests.
Day Nursery to Hold Afternoon Dance
The second "Tea Dansant" for ben-
efit of the Day Nursery will be given
Saturday, March 7, from 3:00 to 5:30
o'clock, at Granger's. The Fisher Sax-
ophone Quartet will furnish the music,
while tea and sandwiches are served
in the alcove. The admission per coup-
le will be one dollar. Tickets are now
on sale at Wahr's, Sheehan's and
Quarry's.
Four Basketball Games Are Scheduled
The following games will be played
tonight in the interclass basketball
series: 7:10 o'clock-soph laws vs.
fresh homeops; soph engineers vs.
soph lits; 8:00 o'clock-junior engi-
neers vs. junior dents; junior lits vs.

gard to furnishing the rest of the para-
phernalia.
