Crowe Says It Is Too Difficult For
Average Man to Win
Board Awards Numerals to All-Fresh
Squad and Tennis"
Revision of the present rules gov-
erning the award of insignia to the
athletes who serve Michigan on the
track team, so as to more equitably
give them the recognition they deserve
and which they do not at present re-
ceive, was urged yesterday upon. the
board of directors of the athletic as-
sociation by retiring President Charles
Crowe, also manager of the track team
during the past season.
He impressed upon the directorate
the need of amending the present rul-
es governing the award of the track
"M" and "aMa." These rules, accord-
ing to Crowe, are so strict that it is
practically impossible for the average
track athlete to earn his insignia.
Crow urged that some steps be taken,
either by devising some emblem for
such men -as Murphy, Ufer Fox and
others who will this year receive only
the "aMa," or of widening the .presen
scope of the rules governing the
award of track "M." As a result of
Crowe's action yesterday, it is expect-
ed that the board will next fall make
some definite move in the matter.
The newly elected track and baseball
managers, W. B. Palmer and Chester
lang, took their places on the board
yesterday for the first time, and in the
reorganization meeting, Patrick D.
Koontz was chosen as president of the
athletic association.
The board yesterday, also, voted the
award of 12 regulation sets of numer-
als to the members of the All-Fresh
baseball team, the men to receive the
emblems to be picked by the All-Fresh
and Varsity coaches. Regulation sets
of numerals will also be given to the
four men on the 1917 tennis team,
with a numeral cap for the inanager.
Following out the system adopted
for the football men last fall, the di-
rectorate yesterday voted the award
of "M" certificates to the letter men
on the track and baseball teams.

For Recovery From



Mattson, substitute catcher on the
Varsity baseball team, was declared
ineligible for competition on future
Wolverine athletic teams, when the
eligibility committee last night passed
on charges that he had played base-
ball for outside teams without the con-
sent of the athletic authorities. Under
the code governing Michigan athletics,
such participation is against the rules,
and renders the accused liable for per-
manent suspension from participation
on all teams,
Similar charges, preferred against
several members; of the All-Fresh
team, were brought before the com-
mittee, but action was postponed pend-
ing hearings on additional cases. It is
stated'that several battery men on the,
1917 squad are in danger of losing
their athletic standing for acts simi-
lar to those which resulted in the bar-
ring of Mattson.
Should the board bar these men, the
Varsity squad of next year would.be
practically without a s.ubstitute back-
stop for Webber, the 1913 Varsity
catcher, who left this spring, promis-
ing to return for next season. "
In a design which apparently de-
pics simply the industriousness of par-
rots, in gathering the plumage plucked
from the wings of a swan, the Campus
numeber of the. Gargoyle has cleverly
symbolized the honors with which
glory-bedecked students "feather the
nest" of their university career. Nu-
merous cartoons of the elect feature
the issue.
The Gargoyle has also extended its
field to include a Michiganensian, a
fac-simile of the yearbook as it ap-
pears to the humorist. The actual
beautifiers of the campus and a mod-
est estimate of the average freshman's
dream are the inspiring subjects of two
of the many illustrations of the maga-

Samuel H. Regester, age 30 years,
of Rice's Landing, Penn., died at the
university Hospital late Sunday after-
noon, following a severe attack of
appendicitis. Regester was operated
upon for appendicitis last Monday
night, when his condition became pre-
carious, but his physical condition was
so weak, especially his heart that he
was unable to recover.
Regester was advised by the hos-
pital authorities, to have his appendix
removed several months ago, when he
was troubled with a severe attack of
appendicitis, but he postponed the
matter until after he was to take his
examination for a Ph.D. degree in
Chemistry. Hospital authorities said
yesterday that they believed overwork
was partly responsible for his weak-
ened condition.
Regester entered the university two
years ago as an assistant in chemistry,
coming here from Columbia univer-
sity. He was a member of Phi Lamba
Upsilon, honorary chemical society,
and just been elected to Sigma Xi.
At a meeting of the Mimes last week
the following men were elected to

Dr. Rowland to Practice in New Jersey
Dr. W. D. Rowland, '14H, will leave
for Asbury Park, New Jersey, tomor-
row, where he will begin the practice
of medicine. He has served as interne
in the univeristy homeopathic hospital
during the past year.
Several changes in the courses of the
literary department have been an-
nounced by Registrar A. G. Hall. A
new course leading to the degree of
Bachelor of Sciences in Chemistry has
been created, Spanish has been added
to the list of permissible elections for
first year men, and Philosophy and
Education have been added to group
III of the requirements for graduation,
which was extended to 60 hours in-
stead of 40 as formerly.
Two new courses, Physiography and
Geography will be started in the fall
in the department of Geology, and will
be open to freshmen. The courses will
continue throughout the year, four
hours each semester.
Owing to the fact that so few seniors
verify their credits until near the time
for graduation, a rule was passed
making it compulsory in the future for
all who expect to graduate to obtain
from the registrar an official statement
of verification of their credits before
December 20.

Errors Behind Haff Cost Junior Laws
Championship; Seniors For
Second Time Take
Soph Lits Take Game From Third
Year Engineers and Tie For
Second Place
For the second time the senior laws
won the campus championship when
they defeated the junior laws in an
8 to 6 battle yesterday afternoon in
the finals of the interclass baseball
Johnson started the game for the
seniors with a three-bagger and
scored on an error. Bisbee, the jun-
iors' hitting first-sacker, tied the score
in the second with the first of his two
home runs. Errors by the juniors
gave the seniors a one run lead which
they lost as soon as their opponents
came to bat. Two bases on balls, one
error and a hit set the'juniors ahead
by one run in the third. Johnson of
the near-grads brought the score to
a tie in the fifth.
Haff's support deserted him in the
sixth and the seniors were enabled
to gain a four run lead, which they
failed to increase in the seventh, Bur-
ton started a rally in the last with a
clean bingle over second, and Bisbee
chalked up his second home run of the
day, making the score 8 to 6. Ide had
fanned and McClellan and Lewis went
out by way of Lehr and McCoy.
