RELAY TEAl! LEAVES THIS NOON
Although five of the Wolverine track
stars will be in the east Saturday
night, the Varsity meet in Waterman
gym is sure to furnish some of the
fastest competition of the year. The
distance runs are the only events
where the class of the competition will
fall below par, as all the relay men
have been drawin from either the mile
or the half mile ranks.
The freshmen will finish their in-
door work Saturday night, some of
whom are waiting for this chance to
try their skill against their elders on
the Varsity squad. Wilson, the fresh-

GOOD SCHOLASTIC RECORD
NECESSARY FOR EXEMPTION
Former Method Declared Too Severe
Mental and Nervous Strain;
By the terms of a new ruling of the
graduate department, which goes into
effect with the coming June examina-
tions, all candidates who expect to ob-
tain their master's degree and who
have clear scholastic records, will not
be required to take the two-hour, star-
chamber oral examinations which have
been required in the past. The new
ruling was announced yesterday after-
noon by Dean Karl Guthe of the Grad-
The old rules governing those taking
examinations for master's degree re-
quired both the regular course writ-
ten tests and an oral examination. The
new regulation cuts off the oral quiz
for those with clear records, but re-
tains the written final. The committee
in charge, however, retains the right to
require the oral examination if it sees
fit. According to Dean Guthe, the old
system has been abolished as imprac-
tical in that it puts the student under
too severe a mental and nervous
strain, and has proven in reality a
poor test of the student's ability.
Will Replace Stolen Hunt Picture
No trace has been found of the Hel-
en Runt picture that was stolen from
Alumni Memorial hall last month, and
the Ann Arbor Art association ex-
pects to replace it as soon as the bill
is received from the Library of Con-
gress, to whom the picture belonged.
Fortunately the picture was only a re-
print, and it is believed that it can be
replaced without great expense.
Editor Michigan Daily:-
On account of the charges that have
been made against the 1917 medic class
in regard to dishonest methods in ex-
aminations, an investigation was
deemed necessary and this committee
was appointed to carry out the investi-

that the charges were greatly exag-
gerated as circulated on the campus.

Installation of a new ventilation sys-

direction of Dr. J. A. Wessinger, city
health officer, Dean V. C. Vaughan, and
Dr. H. H. Cummings of the medical
department is planned by the Whitney
management. These men will go over
the premises this morning, in an effort
to ascertain what changes are neces-
sary. It is probable that a system of
ventilation, such as is in use in the

WOMAN CRIES FOR SMILES
Editor, The Michigan Daily:
You Mlichigan mnen are perfect hogs,
in some respects. For the last six
weeks, you have exercised a monopoly
on campus humor. You have started
the "Campusmiles" but not once have
you invited the women of the univer-
sity to contribute or partake. You
men edit the column and I firmly be-
lieve that you have come to think that
only you and yours can write humor.
Mr. Editor, you owe us an apology.
If women can vote, they can certainly
write humor, even for your delectable

culty in finding Gtl plae showed fair
early season form.

out; Thursday being the off day in
the training camp, as most of the men
have afternoon classes. Only half of
the two dozen candidates on the indoor
squad were out.
Another infield practice concluded
yesterday's 'work. Howard was out,
and appeared on first; with Hughitt
and Baker at third and short. Labodie
had the absent McQueen's station at

though it takes him a long time to get
th'e ball away from him.
Mattson appeared at the plate, nei-
ther Hippler or Baer were out, and
Benton was again given a trial at the
pegging game. Both of these young-
sters have a good whip, but lack the
"pep" of the older men.
