ANNUAL IST OF SIGMA XI
MAY BE ANNOUNCED TODAY

Trainer Farrell will conduct trials
in the low and high hurdles, and the
broad and high jump, this afternoon
on Ferry field. It is not likely that
trials will be held in any other events,
as the entries for the clash with Cor-
nell Saturday will be decided largely
on the basis of past showing, both in-
doors, and in the outdoor practices.
The high jump was a weak point
during the indoor season, ands there
does not seem to be much chance of
improvement, although the trials may
uncover some unknown material. The
broad jump does not look any stronger
than the high jump, as in the trials to
qualify for the trip to the Penn games,
none of the talent was able to go over
21 feet. At this distance, and at the
height that the high jumpers have;
made, Cornell would have an easy time

Seniors of all dep1artments will 'ee-
ebrate Tuesday May L a "All Senior
Day," according to plans o' thI corn-

The annual swingout will be held
in the afternoon, ending at about 5:00
o'clock. Following this, seniors will
go to the Michigan Union, the entire
club house and grounds having been
rented for the occasion. At 6:00 o'cfock
a dinner will be served in cabaret fash-
ion on the tennis courts behin d the
Union. Selected quartets will fur-
nish music during the meal.'
An all-senior sing will be held on
the steps of Alumni Memorial hall at
7:30 o'clock, and dancing will begin
at the Union at 8:30 o'clock, continu-,
ing until midnight. Nearly 250 couples
are expected to attend the function
and a checking system will prevent
crowding on the dance floor. The Un-
ion lawn will be inclosed by a fence
of Japanese lanterns, and tete-a-tete
benches will be liberally provided.
Tickets will go on sale among the vari-
ous committees tomorrow at $2.00 per
couple.

TWO SENIOR NINES
WIN CLASS GAMES

,Marshall College preparatory school,'
of Huntington, W. Va., the most east-
ern applicant for entry in Michigan's
interscholastic meet on May 22 and 23,
will be unable to participate. The
principal of the institution has inform-
ed Interscholastic manager P. D.
Koontz that the best of the school's
athletes are barred by the eligibility
rule, requiring contestants to be under
21 years of age.
A request for information regarding
the meet has come from the Boys' high
school of New Orleans. Other schools
showing interest, which have never be-
fore participated, are Francis U. Par-
ker, of Chicago, and Terre Haute and
Goshen, Indiana. Chicago University
high school, winner of the meet last
year, has promised to send entries.
The Barristers' cup for the winner
of the mile run takes the place this
year of the "Spider" Coe cup, the for-
mer award in the same event. Nine
other cups are offered by various hon-
or societies, and Ann Arbor business
men to the winning teams and individ-
ual point winners. No change is to be;
made this year in the list of events,;
which comprises eight track and six
field contests.

Fresh Eng. and All-Pharmic Teams

Lits and Laws
KENYON HURLS ONE-1IT GAME
Two games, played at 4:00 o'clock
on south Ferry field yesterday after-
noon, completed the -second day's
schedule in the interclass baseball se-
ries.
Kenyon, who stayed with the Varsi-
ty squad until the final cut was made
before the trip south, pitched a one hit
game for the senior lits against the
all-pharmic aggregation, and beat the
pill makers by a score of 6 to 0. The
senior laws had an easy time with the
fresh engineers, handing them an 11
to 1 defeat in seven innings. Barringer
pitched for the laws, and was well sup-
ported by his fielders.
Owing to the Varsity ball game to-
day all games scheduled for this af-
ternoon will be postponed till tomor-
row. The withdrawal of the senior
pharmics from the series, and the com-
bination of all the pharmic teams has
caused a shift in the arrangements.
Tomorrow's schedule follows: soph
engineers vs. fresh medics, architects
vs. fresh dents.

1914 OPERA HONORS
DRAW II AUTHORS,
When the time limit for submitting
books in the competition for writing
the 1915 Union opera expired last
night, 11 manuscripts had been handed
in. As was previously announced, no
others will be accepted. The books
will be judged this week that the suc-
cessful author may start immediately
to complete his work.
The Mimes adopted the clause of the
new constitution last night, providing
for choice of general chairman of the
opera committee. The new method
provides for a committee of six, con-
sisting of the president of-the Union,
manager of the Union, president of
the Mimes, two members elected by the
Mimes, and the general chairman of
the previous opera, who has only ad-
visory power. The Mimes chose B. F.
Kline, '14, and Rowland Fixel, '14L.
General chairman K. B. Koch, '14,
of the 1914 opera, requests that all
men who intend to enter the competi-
tion for writing the opening and clos-
ing choruses, communicate with hint
within the next few days.,

BIG DEMAND FOR PHYSICS
TEACHERS IN CALIFORNIA
The demand for trained teachers of
physics far exceeds the supply in Cali-
fornia, according to a letter which
Prof. A. S. Whitney, chairman of the
appointment committee, has just re-
ceived from the appointment secretary
of the University of California. Men
who have had experience only as labo-
ratory assistants in the university can
get $1200 the first year with a $200
raise the next year if they make good.
Further particulars will be furnished
by the local appointment committee.
LIST OF APPOINTMENTS IS
ANNOUNCED BY COMMITTEE
The appointment committee an-
nounces the following appointments
made during the last week: Floyd W.
Crawford, '08, principal, Three Rivers;
Elsa Mess, '11, English and Science,
Three Rivers; Ella M. Smith, County
Normal, Saginaw; Selma Leopold, Mu-
-sic and English, Crystal Falls; Mildred
Taylor, History, Royal Oak; H. Paul
Hall, History, Kalamazoo; Clara Hoff-i
man, German, Traverse City.

The water marathon, planned by tie
Union Boat Club, has attracted a large
number of canoeists, and the number
of entries promises to increase before
May 9, when teams of two men each
will paddle from Lakeland to Ann Ar-
bor, a distance of about 31 miles. Some
of the classes, and honor societies
which have entered, plan to have two
or three teams. Some of the teams
will go into regular training.
The committee strongly recommends
that all prospective contestants make
the trip at least a week ahead of time
so that they may become acquainted
with changes in the channel, and also
with the portages. It is said that the
channel has changed considerably-
since last year.
Moving pictures will be taken by
Daines and Nichols for the Selig Co.,
one of the large "movie" manufactur-
ing concerns, and will probably be ex-
hibited throughout the country.
The part of the course which goes
through the lakes near the start will
be patrolled by launches, loaned by
people from Lakeland, and also by
