HO WLAND RESIGNS
FROM MUSIC POST.

George Moritz, '15, playing the part
of Caroline Sedley, the title feminine
role in "A Model Daughter," who
strained his keen slightly while prac-
ticing some dancing steps at last Sat-
urday afternoon's rehearsal, is recov-
ering rapidly and it was announced
last night that the injury would prob-
ably not interfere with his filling the
place in the cast. Moritz played a lead-
ing feminine part in last year's opera,
and made a lasting hit not only for
his grace as a girlhbut also for his
singing ability, in the solo parts he
carried.
The first complete rehearsal of cast
and chorus was held in Hill audito--
rium last night. Director St. John
was well pleased with the spirit
shown, and is confident that by the
time the curtain rises on the first per-
formance a week from tomorrow,
night, everything will be perfected. A
cast rehearsal will be held at the Un-
ion this afternoon as usual, and the
entire cast and chorus will meet at
the Union tonight at 7:00 o'clock.
The following men were finally pick-
ed last night for the Artists' parts in
the chorus: H. C. Duffield, '16, Harold
Easley, '16, F. P. Surgenor, '16, H. W.'
Warner, '16, H. K. Lane, '15, Norman

Vocal Department Head of University
School of Music to Leave
In June
HAS SERVED FOURTEEN YEARS
After fourteen years of most effect-
ive service, Mr. William.A. Howland,
head of the vocal department of the
School of Music, has tendered his res-
ignation, to take effect at the close of
the present school year. Although Mr.
Howland's work in Ann Arbor has won
universal commendation, and his re-
lations with the School of Music ex-
tremely friendly, he believes that the
possibilities for musical expansion,
both in concert work and in teaching.
co be greater elsewhere.
In his early career, Mr. Howland
was engaged with the Bostonian Opera
Co., singing the leadig baritone roles.
For five years, he was prominent in
New York musical circles, engaging
both in concert and church work. Im-
mediately prior to coming to Ann Ar-
bor, he taught in Boston and Worces-
ter, where he also conducted Choral
Societies.
At present Mr. Howland is bass solo-
ist and director of the choir at the
Temple Bethel in Detroit, where in ad-
dition he is conducting -the Temple
Choral Society, and f .the Peoples'
Choral Society, of nearly six hundred
voices.
As yet nobody has :been appointed
to succeed Mr. Howland. He will open
a studio in Detroit in the fall.
MICHIGAN'S TRACK CHANCES
AGAINST CORNELL IMPROVE
Michigan's chances against Cornell
-in the two dual track meets to be
held here this spring have been greatly
increased by the withdrawal of Reller,
the crack sprinter, from the eastern
intsitution.
Reller placed second in the 100 yard
dazh at the intercollegiates last year,
tLc e vc in which Bond took fourth.
In the other sprint Reller failed to
place, with Seward and Bond taking
second and third, respectively.
With Reller out of it, Michigan
should score heavily in the two sprints
at both indoor and outdoor meets, as
Cornell has no other sprinter in the
class of Bond, Seward, Lapsley and
Smith.

procured slips may do so today
9:00 until 12:00 and from 1:00
5:00 o'clock at the Union.

NOVEL CONTEST TO DECIDE
ON MOST POPULAR STUDENT
A contest to determine the most pop-
ular man in the university will be
inaugurated the latter part of this
week. To the winner will be given
a $200, 4 1-2 horse-power Marsh-Mets
motorcycle. The voting will be by bal-
lots, consisting of the fronts of pack-
ages of three different kinds of cigar-
ettes made by the Liggett and Myers
Tobacco Co. Each package front from
Fatima cigarettes will count for 60
votes. The other two brands have not
yet been decided upon. No qualifica-
tions are imposed upon the candidates,
excepting that they be students in the
university, while anyone, whether stu-
dent or not, is entitled to cast his bal-
lot.

'15E; vice- commodore-W. S. David-

the near future.
APPOINT FORMER NURSE TO.
HEAD UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL
Miss Margaret E. Jones, who was
formerly connected with the Universi-
ty hospital, has been appointed matron,
to take the place of Miss Edna
Schwalm, who was ordered deported

ed violation of tree contract labor law.

Early returns from the reorganized
committees now covering the remain-
der of the campus for Union life mem-
bers, have brought the total up to 959,
promising well for the last spurt in
the local campaign. If the students,
faculty and alumni respond as well to
this concentrated canvass as they did
to the efforts of the first committee,
it is reasonably certain that next fall
will see the ground broken for the
long looked-for Union club house.
The following are the names of the
latest signers:
Russell V. Lucas, grad., Eng. Su Sy,
'15, George W. Wiard, '17E, Willis

REHEARSAL OF "SHE STOOPS
TO CONQUER" SHOWS FINISH
Rehearsal of "She Stoops to Con-
quer" yesterday afternoon, moved with
such smoothness and finish, that in
the opinion of Prof. R. D. T. Hollister,
who is directing the play, the produc-
tion could be staged successfully today.
Costumes for the production will ar-
rive from Detroit tomorrow, and the
scenery will be installed in time for
the final dress rehearsal Thursday ev-
ening. The seat sale at Wahr's start-
ed yesterday and will continue until
Friday from 4:00 to 6:00 o'clock in
'the afternoon.
PRESIDENT HUTCHINS' CLASS
FLAG OF '71 IS ON EXHIBIT
The class flag of President Harry
B. Hutchins has been resurrected from
the depths of the basement of Univer-
sity hall, and is now on exhibition in
Secretary Shirley Smith's office. It
was carried by the class of '71 the day
of the class exercises, when President
Hutchins, as class orator, spoke in the
Methodist church. The banner Is blue
on one side and yellow on the other,
bearing the class motto, "To the stars
through difficulties," and the clajss
numerals.!
HOUSE CLUB DELEGATES IN
SESSION WITH FACULTY MEN
Sororities, woman's league houses,
professional fraternities,. and men's
house clubs are holding conferences
with the house club sub-committee of
the non-athletic committee of the sen-
ate during this week. These are an-
nual meetings and not special gather-
ings, although several recommenda-
tions will doubtless b.e made. The ses-
sions will be held on dIfferent days of
the week. The sororties met yester-
day.

Remaining Candidates Begin Fighting
It Out For Positions on
Varsity
COACH STARTS INFIELD WORK
The baseball candidates surviving
Saturday's cut had one of the liveliest
practice sessions of the training sea-
son yesterday, with practically all the
men out. With the first game but
four short weeks away, and the squad
narrowed down to the point where in-
dividual rivalry for the different po-
sitions has begun, both veterans and
youngsters are on their toes.
Quaintance was the only veteran
hurler to work out yesterday, and the
squad leaned against the offerings of
the recruit pitchers in murderous fash-
ion. Of the youngsters, Soddy, the
only southpaw on the squad besides.
Captain Sisler, looks as if he had
something. Davidson, of last year's,
squad, and Ferguson, a tall, rangy
recruit, are also possible Varsity hurl-
ers.
Following the dafly slugging - bee,
Lundgren chased his battery men to
the showers, and gave his infield can-
didates a long fielding drill, himself
laying down the bounders. On the oth-
r side of the gym the gardeners scoop-
ed up the balls from another battel-.
From now on the fielding drills will
probably occupy almost as much time
as the batting sessions.
DYNAMO, INACTIVE FIFTEEN
YEARS, WILL BE REPAIRED
Prof. H. H. Higbie's class in El-B,
are reconstructing an old dynamo
which has been found in the basement
of University hall. It has not been
used for 15 years.
The dynamo was operated as a
booster for some of the feeders of the
university power plant until the com-
mutator blew out and wrecked the
machine. The dynamo will be used
in the laboratory and will also feature
the coming exhibit.
Engineer-Lit Sophs to Dine March 26
An interdepartmental dinner for the
men of the soph engineer and the soph
lit classes, is being arranged for March
26. The event will be in the nature
of a "get-acquainted" party, intended
primarily for the benefit of those who
expect to attend the soph prom.

Freshmen, to the number of 500,
temporarily forgot their respective de-
partments and yelled themselves hoarse
for a united class of 1917, at an "All-
Fresh" smoker given by fresh lits
last night at the Union. Talks, of a
"pep" nature, were given by several
first year men, with Prof. W. A. Fray-
er of the history department, repre-
sentiig the faculty. The freshman en-
gineer orchestra, glee club and quar-
tette rendered music for the affair.
Freshman engineers promised to do
even better than the lits by giving an
affair of a similar nature in the near
future. Both classes are considering
the giving of a mammoth open air
smoker, open to all first year men on
the campus, at some time next spring.
