Twenty-one all-fre h track athletes,
with Dr. May as coach, will leave at
9:19 o'olock this morning for a dual
meet in the afternoon with M. A. C.
varsity track team at East Lansing.
The team making the trip is com-
posed of1 O'Brien, Fontanna, Stevens,
Burbey, Herrick, Robinson, Donnelly,
Carroll, Grauman, Davis, Kirby, Kess-
ler, Skinner, Cross, Edwards, Leach,
Campbell, Corbin, Thurston, Water-
bury and Leslie.
M. A. C. will have good men to try
the ability of several of the Mich-
igan yearlings who won distinction in
the events of the Ypsilanti, Detroit
Central "Y," and varsity meets. Alder-
man, of the Farmers, and O'Brien, of
the All-Fresh, should run tight races
in the sprints. Loyeland and Julian,
the M. A. C. football man, will press!
Waterbury in the high jump. Against
Carroll'in the mile, the Farmers will
have Brown, a fast runner in that
event. Beattie is the best M. A. C. man
in the hurdles.1
Cross and Edwards in throwing the+
weights, Burbey and Herrick in thei
440 dash, and Kessler and Skinner inl
the pole vault, are nearly all certain
to be point-takers for the all-fresh.
Motion pictures taken recently of
various campus affairs, such as the
spring games, senior swing-out and+
Michigamua initiation, will be shown
in Hill auditorium some night nextI
week under the auspices of the Mich-
igan Union. Tuesday or Thursday will
likely be selected and the reel con-
sisting of about 2,000 feet of film, will'
be shown continuously from 7:30 to
11:00 o'clock. A nominal admission'
fee will be charged to cover the ex-
pense of presenting the pictures.
The all-fresh "baseball team has
completed its schedule with dutside
institutiois, having' both won and lost

a game with the University of Detroit.
The team, however, will remain intact
until the end of the season and will
be used to furnish opposition to the
varsity in practice games.

University Health Service Members

The strife of competition in swim-
ming and coaching, the gracefulness
of divers, the strange performances of
the Cosmopolitans, the always popular
musical clubs, the cleverness of the
Mimes, the Band, the water parade at
night, and the biggest of all, the first
crew to row on the Huron-all these
features have been planned by the
Boat club for the Regatta.
Immediately after the crowd has
had time to arrive, approximately 4:00
o'clock, at the bend in the river above
the Argo dam, from the M.A.C. game,
the first event will begin. The crowds
will "follow the blue signs" from the
game to the Regatta, or board the in-
terurban cars at Packard and State
streets for the M. C. station.
The shorter swimming and canoe
races will come early in the afternoon,
and water polo and other special wat-
er stunts will be interspersed through-
out the afternoon. The longer dis-
tanced races will occur later in the
day. The four-oared boat race be-
tween a Michigan alumni crew, an All-
College crew, anda Detroit Boat Club
crew over a mile course, will be stag-
ed at 6:00 o'clock. /
At least six societies will have floats

In the evening beginning at about
7:00 or 7:30 o'clock, besides the parade
of floats and canoes, a vaudeville show
will be staged. The Glee club mem-
bers will contribute and the band will
be on hand with harmonious combi-
nations. The Cosmopolitan club will

Freshmen of the University of Mich-
igan are no more. Under starlit skies,
last night, before thousands of specta-
tors on the sloping hillsides of Sleepy
Hollow, men of 1917, as freshmen,
performed the spectacular snake
dance. An instant later, the twisting
line shot past the great bonfire. Gray
caps rained upon the flames, and the
black smoke, arising from the pyre,
again marked the moment of transfor-
mation of freshman to sophomore, sen-
ior to alumnus,- the completion of
another cycle of university history.
The traditional assembling of the stu-
dent body by classes, on the campus,
before the march to the hollow, fol-
lowed the old customs in every detail.
With the Varsity Band leading the
way through the lanes of red fire,
nearly 5,000 black robed seniors, jun-
iors, sophomores and freshmen in or-
der, marched in a long lne to the fire
lit scene.1
Louis Haller, '12-'14L, acting as
master of ceremonies, introduced the
speakers of the evening, all of whom
pleaded for upholding Michigan tradi-
tions and for the better Michigan man.
Patrick Koontz, '14, told the near
sophs to ask themselves two questions,
-"Howi can I make the class of 1917
a better class? AntI how can I make
the University of Michigan a better
University?" George Paterson, '14E, in
demanding the thinking individual,
"If you "are to make this a better
university, you must be a leader, as
well as an individual, not only a sheep
that will do nothing buit follow."
Prof. Evans Holbrook, in a plea for
4ichigan democracy, which he defined
as sharing in everything worth while
on the campus, asked the men of 1917
pointed questions: "How many of you
do anything more than yell at foot-
ball games? How many of you vote
in campus electio'ns? It isn't the star
who makes Michigan better, he said.
"It is the combined efforts of every
Harold Hulbert, '14M, in asking ev-
ery freshman to be a booster, a con-
structionist, and not a knocker, said:
"Two great ideas received their inau-
guration this year, the Health Service,
and the Boat club, after years of work.
It is -up to you to start more new
things, and perpetuate those already
Frank Murphy, '12-'14L, in a fine
outburst of oratory, made a strong ap-
peal for more university sentiment.
"It is a sad fact, but true," he said,
"that the student body has less rever-
ence for university traditions now
than it had four years ago. This should
not be. A man without love for his
Alma Mater, is a man without a coun-

Summer baseball wily be the piece
de resistance at the meeting of the
board in control of athletics, to be
held this evening in the athletic asso-
ciation offices.'- The question will be
officially placed before the members
though the resolution presented last
winter by James 0. Murfin, the alumni
member from Detroit, and who, with
Athletic Director P. G. Bartelme and
J. E. Duffy of Bay City, visited the
athletic authorities of several eastern
universities during the tour of the
Michigan baseball team. last week, for
the purpose of determining the atti-
tude of these universities on the pro-
posed change in the present eigibility
code. h
Conferences were held withe au-
thorities at Cornell, Syracuse and
Princeton, and according to statements
made followying the return home, the
Michigan officials found a general ten-
dency on the part of the easterners to
let their present rules, which require
no statement from the athletes in re-
gard to the playing of summer base-
ball, stand asthey now are.
Campaign Will Be Launched By Tag
Day on Campus, at Regatta
and Ball Game
A campaign which is expected to
eventually result in the placing of
rowing among the major sports at
Michigan and to give to the Wolver-
ine athletes representation in the big
regatta at Poughkeepsie, will be
launched today by members of the Un-
ion Boat club, when a Tag Day will
raise funds for the establishment of
a permanent Crew Fund,
The campaign will be waged onthe
campus,. at the ball game, and at the
Regatta in the afternoon and evening,
and it Is expected that the squads of
campaigners will meet with a ready
In the opinion of Coach Courtney,
of the Cornell Varsity crew, condi-
tions at Michigan are ideal for the
training and development of a crew.
With the Union Boat club as the spon-
sor, the caiupaign to be started tomor-
row will-be carried on each year, un-
til the fund has grown sufficiently to
warrant putting this branch of athlet-
ics on a permanent basis.
