S. C. A. SOCIAL TO BE OPEN
TO UNIVERSITY STUDENTS

Detroit invasion. The meet with the
athletes of the Detroit "Y," tonight,
will start at 8:00 o'clock, with Ralph
Craig, '11, as referee.
The freshmen are looking forward
to an easy victory over their oppon-
ents, but fail to discount the strange-
ness of their ground of contention.
The Detroit "Y" gym is far smaller
than Waterman gym, and calls for 27
laps to the mile, instead of the 14, the
yearlings are accustomed to.
The Detroiters posess no sprinter
that can stop O'Brien, but as this run-
ner is slow in getting under way, the
brevity of the 25 yards, as compared
to the 35 yard dash he has been prac-
ticing, may count in the favor of the
opposition. The hurdlers will be up
against the same disadvantage, as
their events call for the same dis-
tance with but one hurdle straddle.
The disadvantage of a strange track
will tell even heavier in the longer
runs staged on the running balcony,
so that the freshmen cannot be ex-
pected to live up to their performanc-
es, made in Ann Arbor.
The two forces will meet on grounds
of equality in the field events, howev-
er, and they should prove a walk-
a-way for the Michigan youngsters.
In fact, it may be that the expected
victories here may swing the tide of
battle, as the competition in the other
events is liable to be close, and not
the cinch that is counted on.

The names of the fresh medics, who,
it is alleged, have been cheating on
examinations, have not yet come to
light. According to Dean V.C.Vaugh-
an, there is small possibility of the
reinstatement of the honor system, at
least for this semester. The honor
committee decided yesterday to let
the matter drop as far as they are
concerned.
Further developments yesterday
brought out the fact that an anony-
mous letter, declaring that unfair
practices were indulged in during ex-
aminations, was sent to Dr. Vaughan
some time ago. A committee was ap-
pointed by the classto investigate the
charges but it was unable to gain any
definite information on the matter.

Slowly but surely Coach Lundgren
is weeding the sheep from the goats in
the daily baseball workouts at Water-
man gymnasium. Today's practice
will end four weeks of grind by the
candidates for the Varsity baseball
nine.
The pruning knife has been used
sparingly so far this season, but now
the indoor. training is sufficiently far
advanced for the coach to pass judg-
ment on the men who are near the
doubtful line. As the squad is still
unwieldy for the limited quarters of
the gym a decisive cut is therefore
anticipated next week.
As at present constituted the squad
consists of 49 men; including 19 bat-
tery candidates, 21 infielders, and 9
gardeners. The men lopped off will
be practically all fielders, as the pitch-
ers are the only players expected to
develop slowly.

"Hot dog barking," a reading by
Melvin Case, '15E, will be one of the
features on the program of the Stu-

held in Newberry hall this evening.
Other numbers on the program will be
a violin solo by Ralph Frackelton, '17,
and a vocal solo by Kingsley Gould,
'13.
A professional candy maker will ply
his art on the stage before the audi-
ence. The party will begin at 8:00
o'clock, and all studernts are invited.

GRAPPLERS WILL PERFORM
THIS AFTERNOON IN GYM
This afternoon's card in the wrest-
ling tournament is expected to bringl
out a large crowd to watch the grap-
plers. Some of the best men in the
tournament are scheduled to perform;
and if the wrestling room cannot ac-
commodate the crowd, the matches
will be staged on the main floor.
The schedule for today calls for
twelve matches, three each in the
heavyweight, middleweight, light-
weight, and welterweight classes.
Future Pastor Visits in Ann Arbor
Edward B. Chaffee, '09-'14L, is vis-
iting in Ann Arbor during the spring
vacation of the Hartford Seminary.
He is enrolled in that school, and will
enter the Congregational ministry up-
on graduation. When in college, he
was a Varsity debater, and a member
of Delta Sigma Rho and Toastmasters
club.

To Hold "All-Fresh" Smoker Monday
Members of the freshman class will
make their first attempt at unifying
the c'lass at an "All-Fresh" smoker,
to be held at 7:00 o'clock Monday night
at the Union. Prof. W. A. Frayer,. of
the history department will be the
only faculty speaker.
Several first year men are sched-
uled to give short talks. Music ren-
dered by the fresh engineer orchestra,
will be one of the main attractions. A.
charge of 15 cents will be collected at
the door.
Rabbi to Address. Jewish Students
Rabbi Louis J. Kopald, of Buffalo,
New York, will address the Jewish
Students' Congregation in the Orphe-
um theater at 7:00 o'clock tomorrow
night. "A Religious Crisis" will be
the theme considered. Mr. J. F.
Wuerth has granted the organization
permission to conduct services in the
play house, which will be open to the
public.

Prof. M. Gomberg, head of the organ-
ic chemistry department left Thursday
afternoon for New York City, where
he will be presented with the Nichols
medal by the Chemists' club of New
York City.
The Nichols medal was established
by the Chemists club of New York
City, the largest section of the Amer-
ican Chemical Society,in honor of their
ex-president Dr. William H. Nichols.
Dr. Bernard Hesse, Michigan '85, is
president of the club.
The Nichols medal is given annually
to the man who has been judged to.
have .done the most important piece
of work in chemistry in the country,
during the year. The recipient of the
medal must give a lecture before the
club on his work.
The subject upon which Prof. Gom-
berg has been working, and which has
brought him into such prominence is,
"The Trivalence of Carbon." The sub-
ject of Prof. Gomberg's lecture before
the club last night was, "The Exist-
ence of Free Radicals."
Locker Prowlers Are Found in Gym
Locker prowlers are again active
around the gymnasium. One student,
whose name Dr. May refuses to di-
vulge on account of lack of sufficient
evidence, was recently detected. The
incident may cause more to heed the'
constant warning against leaving valu-
ables in the gym lockers.

STAR RUNNER WILL COMPETE
WITH HALF MILERS IN WEST
"Hap" Iaff Entered as Contestant at
St. Louis on
March 14
"Hap" Haff, star Wolverine runner,
will compete in the special collegiate
half-mile race at St. Louis on March
14, to be staged as a part of the annual
athletic carnival of the Missouri Ath-
letic Association. Announcement of
the entry of the former Michigan
track captain was made yesterday by
Trainer "Steve" Farrell of the Varsity
team.
Haff will compete against a field of
four or five of the best collegiate half
milers in the west. Osborne, the
Northwestern crack, will possibly be
entered in this event. The meet comes
on the same night as the Michigan-
Syracuse dual clash, but in view of
Haff's ineligibility for this competi-
tion he has been entered in the west-
ern meet.
Replevin Suit by Students Settled
The- replevin suit instituted by Carl
G. Schoeffel, '13-'15L, and P. M. God-
ehn, '15L, against Mrs. F. J. Webb,
Oakland avenue, for the recovery of
two trunks alleged to have been
wrongfully withheld was settled in
Justice J. D. Thomas' court yesterday
morning.. Attorney A. J. Sawyer, for
the defense pointed out that Schoeffel
and Godehn had failed to certify the
writ of replevin, as required by the
law, and they were nonsuited.

At the end of the first half in the
fresh law-fresh homeop game, the
score was tied at 4 counters apiece,
but in the second half the laws came
back a little fresher than the homeops,.
and seized the heavy end of a 16 to 13
game.
In spite of Melvin's good work, the
junior dents failed to win from the
junior engineers, who beat them by a
10 to 7 score.
The junior lits defeated the fresh

Statz, the medic's star center was so

score.
No games will be played in the se-

GRIDIRON FOR TUG OF WAR
Varsity football men, divided into
opposing factions, will contend in a
tug of war at the time of the All-Fresh-
Ypsilanti meet in Waterman gymna-
sium next Saturday. Capt. Rayns-
ford of the 1914 team sent a challenge
to Miller Pontius, star' tackle of the
1913 eleven, to gather 'a band of fol-,
lowers, and appear at the gym at the
designated time with the long'pulling
