Mock commencement exercises will
be one of the central attractions at the
All-Senior dinner-dance at the Michi-
gan Union Tuesday. During the early
part of the dance a grand march will
be held at which time everyone will
receive a "diploma." The "commence-
ment speaker" has not yet been chosen.
The committee announced yesterday
that the 1914 men will be allowed to
bring partners from any class.
Senior women are urged to invite men
for the affair. This method is to be

generally in vogue.

$300 PRIZE GOES
TO ADNAJOHNSON
Adna R. Johnson, '14, was awarded
the first: prize of $300 in the advertising
contest which has been conducted un-
der the supervision of Professor P. N.
Scott, of the rhetoric faculty. The
second prize of $200 went to Edward

the fiial decision in regard to the priz-
es. Mr. Ford'is a graduate of Chicago

Chalmers Motor Company for the past
five years.
The decision was based upon the
originality, thoroughness, and practi-
cality of the work submitted.
Johnson submitted a thesis in two
parts accompanied by a series of ten
charts. Saier's work took the form of
an essay on advertising problems. Ac--
cording to Mr. Ford the work would do
credit to expert advertising men.
COMBINED CLUBS PLAY TO
BIG JACKSON AUDIENCE

at Jackson last night in the last out-of-

makers left Ann Arbor yesterday noon,

ever enjoyed. An eastern trip is be-
ing planned for next year, to be under-
taken during the Christmas holidays.

were in, the third. Turnure crowded
all his three free tickets into the
eighth, but kept the Wolverines at bay
with the paths intoxicated. Besides
holding the Varsity to four hits, Turn-
ure led the attack of his mates. He
scored the first run, and secured two of
the tlree hits of Syracuse.
Michigan received a run to start
things when Ahearn let Howard on in
the first. Slater let Sisler's high fly
get away from ,him, allowing Howard
to score, as "Perry" had stolen second
while McQueen whiffed.
In the third inning the Maize and
Blue diamond heroes of past ages must
have well nigh worn out their graves
rolling over. Turnure singled, and the

ines. Seymour bunted, and Sisler made
a play for Turnure at sedond, but Bak-'

also bunted, and. Sisler pegged him in

TEN PREP SCHOOLS ENTER
LOCAL INTELSCHOLASTIC
T'n high schools from different1
parts of the state submitted their en-f
tries for the interscholastic meet to be
held on Ferry field May 22 and 23. Yes-f
terday was set as the last day for re-t
ceiving entries but on request of sev-
eral schools who were unable to defi-t
nitely decide in that time, Manager P.i
D. Koontz, '14, has extended the dates
until May 14.
The schools which have sent in the
list of their athletes to compete in thea
meet are: Lansing, Detroit Eastern,1
Arthur Hill of Saginaw, Armada, Chel-
sea, Muskegon, Memphis, Croswell,t
Rockford, and Bay City Eastern.
Ray Blake, '13, former Michigan
track star, has presented a silver lov-
ing cup to be awarded the runner who}
breaks the Ferry field record in thet
440. The present mark is 51 4-5 sec-
onds.

Work on the park at the lower endt
of Barton pond has just been complet-t
ed, and the park is now open to thet
use of the public. As part of itsv
scheme for beautifying the grounds
about its property, the Edison Com-f
pany had 100,000 white pine trees h
planted under the supervision of Mr.i

annual outdoor Varsity meet, win-
ning over the sophomores by count of
51 to 37. The freshmen failed to show
anything of their vaunted strength and
were compelled to rest content with
third and a total of 22 points. The jun-
fors trailed the bunch with a 7 tally
total.
Fast time and exciting finishes fea-
tured the meet. The century dash was
run in deadheat with Seward and
Bond out in front, while the -880, the
mile and the 220 all furnished plenty
of excitement for the rooters.
But what proved the big feature of
the races was the wonderful time made
by the sophomore dash man, Smith, in
the low hurdles, when he hung up a
mark of 25 4-5 seconds in his first race
in competition. This time is only 1-5
of a second slower that that made in
the Cornell-Michigandual meet last
week. Smith's performance means
that Trainer Farrell now has a hurdler
who will be able to pull down points
for the Wolverines in an event in
which they have been deplorably weak
all year.
Jametin and !Murphy 'raced around
the 880 yard distance for a mark of i.
minute 58 2-5 seconds in an agonizing-
ly close finish. The youngster start-
ed his final dash to the tape a moment
too soon, and was unable to keep
ahead of the veteran Jansen in the last
hard dash. The time made was but
one second less than the Ferry field.
record, hung up by Speiden last Sat-
urday.
The big surprise came in the mile
run, when the Varsity runner, Ufer,
ran ahead of the highly-touted year-
ling, Carroll, and won out easily in the
final sprint.
Ferris and Brown staged a close
fight for first place in the broad jump,
the junior winning out by a half-inch
with a leap of 21 feet 7 1-2 inches, for
the best mark hung up by the Wolver-
ines in this event during the present
season. Kohler, although flinging the
hammer 160 feet in practice, was una-
ble to repeat when the judges were
around, winning first place With only
739 feet. Cook won the pole vault
with a mark of 11 ft. 1 inch, failing in
his attempt to sky over 11 ft. 6 inches.
The century and 220 yard dashes
were hair-raising fights with Bond and
Seward battling clear up to the tape in
both finishes. The judges decreed a
dead heat in the 100. yard event, but
gave Seward the first honors in the
longer sprint when he broke the tape
inches ahead of his lanky running
mate. Jansen, running out ahead of
the bunch all the way, raced through
the quarter mile dash for a mark bet-
ter than he made against- Caldwell,
when the two tied in this event last
week. Burby and Herrick, of the
freshies, staged a hot fight for second
honors, racing in behind the long-strid-
ing veteran nearly abreast.
