HAB ISHERS REPORT HEAVY
S.tE OF LITTLE GRAY CAPS.
According to the reports of some of
the State Street merenants, last year's
fresh cap campaign seems to be bear-
ing fruit. To date more caps have
been sold than in several years pre-
vious-between 800 and 850 having al-
ready been disposed of. Contrary to
last year, sales began several days
before college opened, and business
still remains brisk. So far the de-
mand for lit capsrhas been heaviest
with the engineers second and the
dents a bad third.

tic Society of America. He is well
known to some of the students in the
university through his works which
are studied here.
Another treat for the Germans is
coming very soon in the famous
Munchner players of Oberammergau
who will present Der G'wissenswurm"

NEW HILL AUDITORIUM TO
BE FINISHED IN DECEMBER
Work on the Hill Memorial Hall
has been progressing slowly since last
June, and according to a statement
from the superintendent of construc-
tion, the structure will not receive its
finishing touches until the first of De-
cember. The contractors have been ex-
periencing much trouble in securing
help from Ann Arbor and have been
forced to 'import laborers from other
parts of the country. Over two hun-
dred men are assisting in rushing the
building to completion and this num-
ber is being increased every day.

Sore throat of the sort that was un-

winter, which developed into peritoni-

Robert M. Gillett, '13, managing editor
of The Wolverine and one of the most
prominent figures on Michigan's cam-
pus for the past three years. Gillett
was seriously ill for only two weeks,
and the end came after he had been
removed to the university hospital and
all that modern medical skill could
accomplish had been done.
Gillett entered the university in the
fall of 1909, after graduating from the
Bay City High School, at the age of
18. During his three years and one
summer session in attendance at the
university Gillett was engaged in a
large number of student activities, in-
cluding the Michigan Union, The
Michigan Daily, and Le Cercle Fran-
cais. He was a member of the Psi
Upsilon fraternity, of Sigma Delta Chi,
Griffins, Sphinx, and Woolsack.
According to member. of the fac-
ulty in whose" classes he took his work,
Gillett's scholastic record was always
of the best. Secretary Goddard of the
law department said of him, "He was
one of the best men in his class; there
were few as good, and none better."
of New Faces Greets Bridge
Builders at Opening
IN COURSE IS.
The opening of the engineering de-
partment yesterday morning found.
many new men occupying places of
prominence on the faculty, and at the
same time a lack of many, who for
years have graced positions on the
engineering teaching staff.
Among the many new men to be
seen are Prof. Horace W. King in the
hydraulic engineering department;
Prof. William C. Hoad, in the sanitary
engineering department; and Prof.
Lewis M. Gram, in the structural en-
gineering department. Mr. H. L. Loyd,
of Cambridge, England, has been en-
gaged to take Mr. G. E. Wallace's po-
sition. Mr. J. E. Emswiller will have
charge of the mechanical laboratory
this year in place of Prof. Moyer.
Prof. James A. Moyer, of the me-
chanical engineering department, has
accepted the chair of mechanical en-
gineering at Pennsylvania State Col-
lege. Professor A. E. Greene, acting
head of the civil engineering depart-
ment last year, will enter engineering
work in the near future. He taught
the famous "S'nR" courses which for
years were the engineers' bugbear.
Professor A. H. Pierce, of the mechan-
ical engineering department will prac-
tice. his profession in Los Angeles,
Cal. Mr. G. E. Wallace, instructor in
the mechanical engineering depart-
ment, has also resigned and is now
employed by the Armstrong Cork
Company of New York. Mr. S. B. Wig-
gii's, instructor in the drawing depart-
ment, has secured a position with a
large power plant at Gladwin, Mich.'
Mr. F. B. Thomas, also an instructor in
drawing, is practicing the engineering
profession in the south.
PROF. SMALLEY'S COURSES
ARE DROPPED OR REASSIGNED
mores were treated to a rather stren-
uous hazing last night. The second
year men had a hard time gathering
together enough grey cappers to war-
rant them in holding a celebration,
and after searching about an hour,
were unable to increase the number of'
The hazing started about 8 o'clock.
Each freshman's coat was turned in-
side out, trousers rolled tp and his
face daubed with shoe blacking. A
few freshmen were picked out of the
crowd which left the Majestic at 9
o'clock and then all the verdant ones
were forced to show their ability at
tree climbing, in front of the Ann Ar-
bor Press building. Paddles were us-
ed frequently and were applied with-
out regard to the feeling of the first
year men. The unfortunates were then
formed into line and marched in lock-
step to the foot of State street where,
standing on the water trough, they
were forced to sing and recite their
high-school yells for the benefit of
their captors and a crowd of upper-
classmen who had gathered to witness
the proceedings. One freshman lost
his balance and fell into the tank.
The amusement seeking sophomores
then marched the freshmen to the
Michigan Central station where the
performers shampooed each other with
ketchup and eggs, which were more
or less ripe. On the way back, about
twenty-five sophomores tried to force
their way into a house on North State
street, to get two freshmen who room-
ed there, but were met at the top of
the stairs by two upperclassmen arm-
ed with chairs, who prevented them,
from capturing the "prizes."
One freshman, becoming angered at
his treatment from the hazers, picked
up a large rock and held off his would
be captors for several minutes. He
was taken, however, and because of
his action was given a thorough
drenching under the water tank on
North University avenue. Another
first year man was not as green as he
looked. He feigned a sprained ankle
and was carried fourteen blocks to his
room by three sophomores.
One amusing incident occurred ear-
ly in the evening. Two sophomores
went up to a house and rang the door-
bell. When the landlord came to the
door they politely tipped their caps'
and inquired of him whether there
were any freshmen in the house. Up-
on receiving a negative answer they
again tipped their caps and went on
to the next house.
The first year men had passed the
word around for a meeting at the
Michigan Central depot at 7 o'clock
but most of them must have thought
it wiser to stick to their rooms for
only a slim dozen answered to the call
