Excitement will rise rampant on

of previous years was asked some
time ago if he would consent to ad-

to accede to this request, but offered
to obtain some other well known alum-
nus to fill his place on the program.
No word has been received from him
concerning the identity of his choice,
and if he is not able to find one to do
this, will probably come himself. As
usual a member. of the facilty will di-

appear in the Daily when completed

of Collegiate
Discuss The



The discussion at the open meeting
of the Association of Collegiate Alum-
nae last eening, centered around the
public school problem. After the ad-
dress of welcome by President Emeri-
tus James B. Angell and. a response
by Mrs. A. F. Morrison, in which she
emphasized the work which Dr. An-
gell had done for the education of
women, Dr. Mary 11insdale read a pa-
per on "The Relation of the A. C. A:
to the Public School. The vocational
and the liberal school, with respective
merits of each very well brought for-
ward, comprised the bulk of Dr. Hins-
dale's paper.
Dr. Charles E. Chadsey, Superinten-
dent of Detroit Public Schools, when
called upon by President Morrison to
lead the discussion took exception to
the position held by the previous
speakers: "I object to the cynical
attitudes many writers are taking in
regard to the efforts of humanizing the
schools," said Mr. Chadsey. "We must
take into account the teachings of hy-
giene, morals and social principles."
If we do not do it, who will?
Holders of Seats in "IM" Section Are
to Secure-Their Blue Flags
Front Athletic Office
All records have been broken by the
purchasers of tickets to the Cornell
game. Between. 12 and 13 thousand
seats have been marked off the dia-
gram and every mail brings a few late
orders. The capacity of the stands is
16,000 so there are many vacancies
available to those who arrive at the
eleventh hour. Upon the south side
bleachers all seats are taken except
the sections parallel with the two goal
lines. The north stand offers tickets
on the five and ten yard lines.
The "M" section is made up of about
1,600 post grads, seniors, and juniors.
Many holders of tickets in the part
forming the blue background of the
"M" have failed to secure their flags
from the athletic office where a new
supply ias been received. They will
be given out to those who were unable
to get one when purchasing their tick-
'.Third Nunier on Oratorical Associa-
tion Course is Well
Prof. T. C. Trueblood, of the depart-
ment of oratory, delivered a lecture
recital of "Julius Caesar" last evening
in University Hall before a large and
interested audience. The recital was
given as'the third of the oratorical as-
sociation series.
With a rich, flexible, and finely-used
voice, Mr. Trueblood gave the greatest
expressiveness to the noble lines. His
intonation is always just and balanced,
and he presents the dramatic situation
with a power that few readers attain.
Senior Laws to Dine at Union.
Senior laws will hold the first of a
series of four dinners at the Union
next Thursday evening at 6:00 o'clock.
Speeches will be made by several
members of the faculty and membersf
of the class. Tickets are being sold
at $2.00 for the four dinners or 60
cents for one.

Committee Appointed to Forward Con-
gratilatory Letter to Penn.
The amicable relations which exist
between Michigan and Pennsylvania;
prompted the student council last
night to appoint a comimttee to draw
up and forward to the students of
Pennsylvania a letter congratulating
them on the victory which their team
won over Michigan last Saturday.
The contents of the letter will serve]
to show the Qpakers that the defeat
which Michigan suffered at their hands
does not strain the relationship of the
two universities, but rather stimulates
the rivalry and strengthens the inter-
ests which both have in common.
The ever persistent band question
arose. in council meeting and a com-
mittee consisting of R. L. Mayall, J.
L. Crane and D. K. Reinhart was ap-
pointed to confer with the board in
control of athletics and endeavor to
arrive at some understanding zn which
the band could be placed on a perma-
nent basis. The committee will make
an official report of the result of the
campus referendum' to the athletic
No provisions were made by the
council to hold a celebration or bon
fire in the event of a Michigan victory
next Saturday, as the sentiment of the
student council was decidedly against
a celebration this fall.
C. J. Wood, C. B. Stouffer, and W. R.'
Drury, will serve on a committee to as-
semble the presidents of the senior
classes to arrange for senior sings this
spring. This committee was empow-
ered to decide the days on which the
various classes should appear on the
campus in cap and gown. ,

Student Sentiment to be Tested at
Mass Meeting Friday
At a meeting of the board of direct-
ors of the athletic association yester-
day, a most radical change was made
in the manner of choosing student
managers of varsity teams and a new
system, an entirely competitive one
was passed. The change is in line with
the customs of many eastern and west-
ern universities and plaes the honor
of being manager mainly according to
the merits and work of the various
tryouts. The change was not really
definitely made in as much as the
new rule will be submitted to the stu-
dents at the Cornell mass meeting, and
student sentiment expressed there will
really determine its fate;
The new plan is aimed to. do away
with the present politics of the worst
sort that are prevalent in such elec-
tions and to base the selection on mer-
it largely. The plan in short is that
any number of sophomores may try
out for the various jobs and do all the
work now done by the various commit-
tees. At the end of the year two of
these men are picked by a committee
composed of various men in charge of
that particular sport and these two men
are voted on by members of the ath-
letic association as to which will be
the assistant manager their jnior
year. The man thus elected will au-
tomatically become varsity manager
his senior year.
The plan combines the merit method
of selection and still does not take
from the members of the association
their right of franchise in the fina se-
lection and it also abolishes "peanut
politics" in providing that no votes
shall be solicited. At the Cornell mass
meeting next Friday the question will
be presented to the students and the
campus sentiment on the subject as-
certained. Then if the concensus of
opinion is in favor of Tihe plan it
will go into effect in January and
sophomores will be allowed to start
trying out.
The new system in detail is given
I. Resolved that all rules and reg-
ulations relative to election of var-
sity managers, appointment of inter-
class managers and committees in var-
sity sports be hereby and are absolved.
II. Be it further resolved that the
following rules relative to the appoint-
ment and election of the above be
hereby and are adopted.
1. That any sophomore who desires
to try, out for varsity managership
may try out on notice of Athletic oflice
to do so.
2. All candidates must be in good
standing in scholastic work.
3.. At the end of the sophomore
term of competition a board composed
as follows will pick two candidates to
run for assistant varsity manager in
the sport in question. The appoint-
ment board to be composed of
(1) Director of outdoor athletics.
(2) Coach of sport in question.
(3) Trainer.
(4) Director of interclass athletics,
(5) Varsity manager of sport in
(6) Captain of sport in question.

Union opera was held yesterday in the
new addition of the Union. Fifteen try-
outs were present to practice the toe
work vghich was directed by several
of last year's danc ers. The manage-
ment of the opera wishes to announce

tunity to try out for the. show may

ican Chemical society held its regular

ments. fhe lecture will probably be

Dr. John R. EfMinger, acting dean of
