Deep gloom pervades the ranks of
the junior tryouts, as Seward the
Varsity sprinter has been declared in-
eligible by the faculty and will not be
able to form one of the links in the
class team that up to the present was
doped to win the fall affair. There is
a superfluity of material out for his

down two laps for the mid-way men,
they still loom up as a powerful facto:
in Saurday's struggle.
All is not sunshine in the senior
camp, as the report has been confirm-
ed that Blake, the much touted half-
miler, will be kept out of the compe-
tition because of an operation he un-
derwent last spring for an abscess on
the -ear. His doctor has ordered him
to refrain from violent exertion this
fall so that he may surely be in shape
for the winter and spring. Even in the
face of this blow the last year men are
not despairing as they figure that any

Union Has Many Standbys Among Sen-.
for Classes and Graduates of
Former Years.
Life membership in the Michigan
Union, a plan which was devised last
year to arouse the interest and support
of the undergraduates and alumni for
the Union, a common meeting-ground
for Michigan men, has met with great
success everywhere. To be a life mem-
ber of the Union has becom one of the
foremost aims of every Michigan man.
Hardly a day passes, that some stu-
dent or graduate does not ask that his
name be recorded on the life member-
ship list. This is especially true on
Saturdays when many of the old grads
are back for the football games.
Life memberships in the Michigan
Union are, as a rule, not solicited,
They are given freely on the part of
the applicant. An exception to this
rule, however, occurs in the case of the

senior classes where a canvass is
made. Last year, during the solicita-
tion of the seniors, some 50 participat-
Ing life members were obtained. Next
spring, a similar canvass will be con-
ducted among the senior classes. In
so far as there is little or no urging
on the part of the Union management
to secure life members, the phenom-
enal results must be due to the part
the Union plays in the life of every
Michigan man.
Many university men have taken out
life memberships this fall. Some of
the applicants have paid the full
amount of $50.00 in cash, while others
are participating life members and
pay an annual fee of $10.00 for five
years. An especially large number of
freshmen have already signified their
good intention and have entered their
names with many others.
The plan has had remarkable suc-
cess. At present there are 89 life
members, and 211 participating life
members. These men are not counted
in the regular yearly Union member-
ship. But with their names the Mich-
igan Union can show by far the largest
membership in all the years of its ex-
istence, a total of 2,430..

Owing to a large lead accumulat
in the vote yesterday, Roosevelt is no
comfortably in first place in the stra
ballot, with a lead of 80 votes over W

but the leaders are getting farther o

possible for any of the other cand
dates to move up in the race..
The feature of the vote is the ove

Members Will Give Many Lectures
This Winter; Are Highily
Praised For Efforts.
The election of officers for the Ly-
ceum club resulted in the selection of
Ray K Immel, '10, for president;
Thomas E. H. Black, '11, '14L, for sec-
retary and treasurer, and Miss Helen
Magee for corresponding secretary.
The club is under the direction of
Prof. R.-D. Hollister.
During the past* four years, the
members have delivered about 150
lectures to various audiences through-
out the state, for which they received
many compliments. H. R. Pattengill,
of the Lansing Moderator Topics, gives
high praise to the men who have
spoken before the Christian Sociology
club of the'Baptist church at Lansing.
These lectures are to be continued,
and, in addition, several talks will be
given in different towns throughout
the state. The program will be an-
nounced later, and a circular issued,
describing in detail the work of the.
Munich Players Take Well in Detroit.

players are booked to appear at an
early date in Ann Arbor under the aus-
pices of the Deutscher Verein.



Masons Toil on Hill Auditorium Using
Light of Gasoline Torches.
If long hours have anything to do
with progress in building, the Hill au-
ditorium will be done in a short time.
The concrete masons who are working
on the pavement in front of the build-
ing, are working by the light of gas-
oline torches.
Much interest is being shown in the
curious formation of the walk ap-
proaching the building. By means of a
complicated set of forms, the concrete
is being molded into a design some-
what resembling the "diamond-cut-di-
amond" design adorning the front wall
of the building itself. The empty
spaces in the forms will be filled with
red tile brick, so as to afford an agree-
able contrast with the concrete.
Harold "Pip" Titus, '11, who was
elected to the managing editorship of
The Michigan Daily for the year 1911-
1912, but who was forced to resign
on account of ill health, was in Ann

ing college, Titus 'has achieved consid-
erable success in the magazine field,
having contributed to the following
publications: Munsey's, Everybody's,
The Outlook, Collier's, and The Amer-

to Arizona having spent the summer
