ALUMNI TO AID IN
BUSRA CAMPAIGN
Gordon Kingsbury, of St. Clair, J.
Fred Lawtoin, Douglas Jamison, Win.
S. McCormick, Maurice McMahon, all
of Detroit, are some of the alumni who
will return to Ann Arbor, the last part
of this week, to assist in the financial
campaign for the Busrah medical mis-
sion. They will probably make visits
to the sorority and fraternity houses,
presenting the Busrah project,
Preparations for the canvassing the
first three days of next week for.Bus-
rah funds have nearly been completed.
When the committee of sixty, the act-
ive workers in the campaign under
the direction of Carl Metzger, '14, have
selected five workers each to help
them, 360 students, men and women
will be ready to make the plea for
financial aid.
The budget this year calls for $4,-
380.00, an increase of nearly $2,000.00
over last year's sum. Michigan's mis-
sion is medical, and is conducted pure-
ly on that basis, although the repre-
sentatives sent there are all interested
in religious work.
WEATHER CONDITIONS FAIL
TO STOP LUNDGREN'S MEN
Sliding, base running and battingR
practice formed the bulk of the work
for Coach Lundgren's squad of pastim-
ers, who were out for the regular
practice, despite the drizzle.
Workmen were busy yesterday re-
moving the winter 'coverings of the
front of the baseball stands in prep-
aration for the opening of the local
season against Alma College Satur-1
day.
The diamond itself is in good shape,
despite the damp weather of the past
week. The Michigan team will occupy"
a bench this season, as the dugout is
now under the north stand, which has
been moved to make room for the sta-
dium.
A. B. McGraw Lectures This Afternoon;
Mr. H. B. McGraw, of Cleveland, will
deliver his lecture on the "Organiza-
tion and Management of Corporations"
at 4:00 o'clock this afternoon in rooma

DRYS TO CANVASS
MICHIGAN CAMPUS!
Petitions in favor of the Shepperd-
Hobson nation-wide prohibition

amendment to the constitution, are be- ted against each other as the final

the yearlings to get them to don the
grey headgear again. Although State
street merchants announce an average
sale of freshman caps since the arrival
of warm weather, it is the opinion of
officers that many of the youngsters
have not been following out this tra-
dition since spring vacation. Fresh'
lits will hold a meeting early next
week, to discuss means of bringing the
matter before the attention of the
whole class.

ing circulated about the campus by
prohibition workers. Many names of
faculty members and students have
already been obtained, but the real
solicitation will begin tomorrow, when
the entire campus will be canvassed,
The resolution, favored by the peti-
tions, was introduced into the senate
by Senator Morris Shepperd, and into
the house, by Representative Rich-
mond P. Hobson. Two million names
of bona-fide voters have been secured
since January.
Another campaign for signers will
be conducted later among the church-
es in the city. All prohibition work-
are are requested to meet in Newberry
Hall, this afternoon, at 4:30 o'clock.
Frank Olmstead, '15, will preside.
PICK GOLF CLUB TONIGHT;
WILL LAY TOURNEY PLANS
The final membership roll of the Uni-
versity of Michigan Golf Association
will be made up tonight at a meeting
which is to be held at 7:30 o'clock in
Athe trophy room of Waterman gymna-
sium. At the present time over fifty
applications for membership have been
received, and as the rules of the Asso-
ciation permit of but a total enroll-
-ment of thirty men, it is probable that
those who are present at the session
tonight will be the ones taken in.
The meeting will also be the occas-
ion of the adoption of the association
constitution and the discussion of
plans for the holding of the tourna-
ments which will feature the spring
play by the student golf enthusiasts.
Geologists Get Rare Old Specimen
The geology department has recently
received the Femur bone.from an ex-
tinct species of Dinosaur. This bone,
the age of which is estimated at be-
tween seven and eight million years,
measures four feet, six inches in
length, and is a part of the skeleton
of an animal that was estimated to be
at least eighty feet long.

ping An attempt is being made by some

league to prohibit managers from sign-'
ring, ing university students to play in the
been league games this year.
It is At a meeting of the league's heads
eam the question was not able to be defi-

willing to let the matter rest for the
first time, but final action will be taken
field before the season opens.

runners, a bona fide two mile relay
race between two picked teams, chos-
en from the runners who are trying
out for places on the Penn Games
quartette, will be staged on Ferry
field on Saturday. Trainer Farrell
will stage the race both as a means of
adding a bit of diversion to the daily
grind of training and to give him a
line on the abilities of his men under
fire.
The teams will be picked from the
eight men who have been training dai-
ly in preparation for the trials which
will be run off next week, probably on
Tuesday. Haff and Jansen will prob-
ably captain the two squads, with the
other six picked from Murphy and
Griest, the Pittsburg relay runners,
Ufer, Fox, Brown and Lamey. The
competition among these last six men
is close, with anyone of them having
a chance to be chosen for the quartette
which will be taken to the Quaker
classics. Ufer is showing speed far
greater than his indoor performances
promised, while Brown is also with'
him in the business of making a strong
bid to oust Murphy or Griest from the
squad.
ALLINGTON HAS RECOVERED
SUFFICIENTLY TO BE OUT
Although for a time given up by his
physicians H. H. Allington has prac-
tically fully recovered from an attack
of throat trouble that for several
weeks past has threatened to result
fatally. -Allington has been walking
about the streets for two days now, and
it is expected that he will be able to
return to his home at the Psi Upsilon
house shortly. Allington's recovery is
regarded by local physicians as little
short of a miracle, it being the first re-
covery from this disease in this vicin-
ity.
FORMER STUDENT ARRESTED
ON CHECK FORGING CHARGE'
J. S. Cooper, ex-'06, of Detroit, was
arrested by Chief of Police J. T. Ken-
ny yesterday afternoon on a charge of
forging and uttering a check for $35
on Wagner and Company, :the State
street merchants. Upon arraignment
before Justice W. G. Doty, Cooper
waived examination and was bound
over to the May term of the circuit
court. Bail was set for $500, in de-
f: uit of which, Cooper was committed
to the county jail to await trial. In-
vestigation by the local authorities
showed that Cooper is wanted on like
charges in Lanising, Kalamazoo, and
Ypsilanti, of which he has admitted
his guilt to a Burn's detective.
Cornell Tennis Men May Meet Varsity
In preparation for a possible Cor-
nell game on the local courts the ath-
letic association has had a stand erect-
ed overlooking the Varsity Tennis
courts. It is rumored that Cornell will
make a Western trip and Michigan will
probably be on the schedule if the trip
is made.
