MICHIGAN TEAM
ENTRAINS FOR
EASTERN MEET

Picked Stars Leave

Ann Arbor

This Afternoon Via the
lichigan Central
Railroad
EXPECT STUDENT BODY AND
BAND TO SEE TEAM LEAVE
All Fresh Will Continue Preparation
For M. A. C.Meet In Absence
of Varsity
Once again as in the past few years,
Michigan sends her quota of picked
track athletes to compete in the east-
ern intercollegiates. Ten men, Capt.
Koher, Bond, Seward, Smith, Jansen,
Armstrong, Ferris, Brown, Ufer, and
Murphy will leave Ann Arbor, this
afternoon at 4:50 o'clock, via. the
Michigan Central railroad.
It is expected that the student body,
led by the band will be down at the
station to send the squad away with
a full charge of Michigan spirit -to
drive them at the top notch of efficien-
cy, Friday and Saturday.
In the trials held yesterday after-
noon, Trainer Farrell picked the two
broadjumpers, Ferris and Brownas
the men to ;add to the eight he had
decided upon after last Saturday's
meet. Fox abested Plummerin the
tww mile trial, but the performance
from the point of time was so poor
that neither could be consideredas
possible point winners in the east.
Brown and Ferris both jumped a
trifle over 22 feet, and in comparison
with the marks made by other broad
jumpers this year, should win points
at the intercollegiates. These men are
both in about the same class, their
jumps never varying more than a few
inches, so Trainer Farrell decided that
they would do the team more good,
than either of the two milers.
Smith and Crumpacker ran through
the low hurdles yesterday, Smith win-1
ning when Crumpacker stumbled overl
the ninth hurdle. The ime was 25 1-5
seconds, but owing to the heavy wind
at their backs, was not an exceptional
mark.
While the Varsity are away, the all-
fresh will continue their preparation
for the meet with the Varsity of M.A.C.3
in East Lansing this week end. No
trials will be held.for the youngsters,l
as Trainer Farrell picked the squad
on the basis of their showing in past
contests, and has left the final ar-
rangements to inter-mural Director
Rowe.l

TROUBADORS FURNISH HARMONY
Ex-Pres. Angefl, Pres. Hutchins, and
Sororities Serenaded
For the last time the members of
the 1914 Musical clubs assembled as
an organization, when they met to ser-
enade President-Emeritus James B.
Angell, President Harry B. Hutchins
and the different sororities of the uni-
versity last night.
The men met at 6:00 o'clock, and
were transported from house to house
on a large dray. Arrangements were
made whereby the troubadors were
served with a complete course dinner,
the refreshments at the different stops
ranging from consomme to nuts in the
approved logical order.
VARSITY TROUNCES

Arrangements for running off the
water events of the Union Boat club
Regatta were almost completed by
the chairmen of the Regatta commit-
tees at a special meeting last night.
Further meetings will be held at 7:00
o'clock tonight and tomorrow.
The number of entries in most of
the swimming and diving events is
large, but unless more entries come
in for the novelties, and some of the
canoe events, it is said that prizes
will be won with almost no competiti-
tion. Entries for all events may still
be made, and the lists will be open
until 6:00 o'clock tomorrow night. The
Boat club has reserved forty canoes
for the use of those who wish to take
part in the contests and also for the
officials. These canoes will be fur,
nished to any who wish to take part
in the paddling events at cost.
Besides the cups which are on dis-
play in Huston's window, six others
will be awarded. The medals and
ribbons for the winners in the sepa-
rate events are expected tomorrow,
and will be displayed at the same
place.
For the preliminaries contestants.
are expected to be on hand at the bend
in the river, where all the contests
take place at 1:30 o'clock Friday. On
Saturday, the men must be on hand
at 3:30 o'clock, since the first event
will start at 4:00 o'clock sharp. On
account of the ball game Friday, and
the short time for the twenty events
in Saturday's finals, no delays will be
permitted. If men are not on the mark
when the race is ready to begin, they
will be left disqualified.
No preliminaries will be held in the
novelties, in the half mile swim, and
the quarter-mile canoe doubles; other
exceptions will be announced Friday
morning. Men not present at the pre-
liminaries will forfeit their right to
race in the finals. Dressing tents will
be provided at the scene of the Regat-
ta for all participating.
SNAGS TO BE CLEARED FROM
RIVER-BED BEFORE REGATTA
Work was started last Saturday on
cleaning up the river for the Regatta.
So far a great number of tree trunks
and s'nags have been removed from
the river-bed, especially in the vicin-
ity of Argo and Barton Ponds. The
fence jutting out into Argo Pond,
which has caused much inconvenience
to paddlers has also been removed.
Union "Doubles" Tournament Starts
Play in the Union "doubles" tennis
tournament will start today. Sixteen
couples have entered in the contest,
and the winning pair ivill be presented
with a cup trophy. The drawings are
posted on a card at the Union.

ADELPHI VOTES TO REORGANIZE I*

RESERVES 5 TO

I

The Varsity celebrated the return to
Ferry field by trouncing the Reserves
5 to 1 yesterday in a five inning con-
test. Baribbau pitched for the regu-
lars, and the errors made behind him
cost a run.
The Varsity collected but six hits off
Quaintance and Davidson, but these
came at opportune times, and hits
coupled with three errors in the sec-
ond round counted five times for the
Varsity. Waltz led off with a hit, and
the bottom of the batting list all scor-
ed.
The line-up of the Varsity was as
follows: Sheehy, cf; McQueen, 2b;
Baker, ss; Labadie, lf; Waltz, 3b;
Hippler, c; Dwyer, 1b; Benton, rf;
and Baribeau, p.

a meeting last night. The new organi-
zation will be similar to the lower
house of Congress, and to the Oxford
Union, where this plan has been used
successfully.
Membership is limited to the num-
ber of states and territories in the
United States, with compulsory at-
tendance. The charter members, for-
mer Adelphis, number 25, and new
members may be admitted on applica-
tion. Paul B. Blanshard, '14, is chair-

vile Theological school in Pennsyl-
vania, will speak on "Bull Worship in
Israel' tomorrow afternoon at 4:00
o'clock in Tappan Hall.

WOMEN'S PAGEANT
NETS ABOUT $400
"The success of the Jeanne d'Arc
pageant this year warrants the pre-i
senting of a similar production ini
1916," said general chairman Helen
Brandebury, '14, yesterday. "We
cleared abot $400 from this produc-
tion though that amount is not certain
as all bills are not in."
There will be a final committee1
meeting of the pageant Saturday when
all accounts will be settled and a defi-1
nite statement made. Because of the
size and work connected with a pag-
eant like that of Jeanne d'Arc it is]
probable that a pageant will be pre-
sented only every other year.
CLASS LEAGUE TEAMS WILL
BATTLE EVERY OTHER DAY1
With only five teams left in the in-1
terclass baseball series, from now on1
it is planned to schedule games for
every other day in order that the bat-
tery men may get a rest between4
work-outs. Yesterday was one of the1
rest days fox the class ball tossers,1
and activities will be resumed today1
with the following games: soph lits
vs. senior laws, and senior engineers1
vs. junior engineers.1
"Campus" Gargoyle to Appear May 29
Once more the Gargoyle will submit
its columns of laughter to its readers

in the Campus number, scheduled to
appear May 29. In this issue the cold
outer world will be completely neg-
lected for the warmer phases of cam-
pus life. Nor will even the faculty
escape the tongue of the satirist and
the keen crayon of the cartoonist iii
the heartless scope of this number.
The cover design is an appropriatei
design created by F. A. Bade, '15, next
year's managing editor of the humor
magazine.
Shaw Chosen Grand Rapids Attorney
Frank Shaw, '12L, formerly athletic

COMMIUNICATION

(The Michigan Daily assunies no re-
spousibility for sentiments express-
ed in communications.)
Editor, The Michigan Daily:-
The action of the university author-
ities in preventing Clarence Darrow's
appearance here, I am sure will ap-
peal to the majority of the thinking
student body as dkplorable.
Many views may be taken of the ac-
tion particularly since Darrow was
declared a socialist (which he is not)
and too radical (which, thank God, he
is); but primarily, such an action can
only reflect upon the eighteenth cen-
tury ideas of our ultra conservative
teachers (!) who, it seems, finding
themselves unable to control or influ-
ence the -ideas of the rising generation
through their fermenting and mould-
ing notions, refuse to allow a man
representing the trend of the spirit of
the twentieth century to advance his
views.
Our intelligent guardians tell us to
develop our individuality. No sooner,
however, do we attempt it than we are
condemned as too radical! Do these
thoughtful men imagine that origi-
nality and individuality lie in the rut
with their self-damning conservatism?
Far better would it be for them to
remember that the most rabid radi-
calism, were it present, could hardly
hold its own against that conservatism
which clouds a man's mind, shuts out
the light, and leads hiin into indolence
and purility: far better to remember
that just such conservatism always
has'and always will attempt to divert
progress.
We can hardly hope for a correction
of the error committed in this case,
but we can feel optimistic enough to
believe that it will not be brought back
to us in the future.
We should much more prefer to feel
that a word to the wise is sufficient
than to believe that you must\hammer
a conservative head in order to stim-
ulate the brain into activity.
SOLOMON SHAPPIRO, '16E.

FRESIMEN WILL NOT HOLD FETE
hits Withdraw Support From Affair
Planned For June 5
The "Campus Fete," planned by
freshmen for the entertainment of the
campus on June 5, received its death
warrant yesterday when the fresh lit
social committee decided to withdraw'
their support from the affair. Their
action means that the fete will not be
held, as the engineers will be unwil-
ling to assume the financial responsi-
bility single-handed.
The reasons for withdrawing, as
given out by the committee, are the
sickness of Russell Crawford, '17, gen-
eral chairman, the large expense in-
volved in the undertaking and the de-
cision of the freshman engineers to
hold their annual pow-wow on the
same date.
