With a program of speakers Une-
qualled at any previous ev'ent of the
kind, the mammoth Michigan Uion
football smoker, to be held in the com-
bined gyms this evening, will doubtless
prove a record-breakor, There will
be lively talks, meoy yell's, aad eats
and smokes galore, and it is erpeet~o
that the big floor will be crowded to
the limit.
Because of the failure of members
of the Union to tape an active inter-
est in their exclusive privilege to pur-
chase tickets for the smoker, the ticket
sale will be thr~own. open to all this
morning. The pasteboards will only
be on sale at the Union, and inasmuch
as in past years it has been necessary
to turn away large numbers, it' is
urged that all men who desire to at-
tend the principal athletic rally of th-e
year buy their admission cards ear'ly.
No tickets -will be sold at the door
this evening.
A notable addition to. the already
brilliant program of speakers was sie-
cured last evening, when Dr. James'
B. Angell gave his tentative assent to
be present. Dean J. R. Effinger will
be the other faculty representative.
and Gov. Chase S. Osborn and Edmund
0. Shields, '96L, chairman of the state
Democratic committee, will be the ,
principal outside speakers. Edward
Kemp, '12-'14L, president of the Mich-
igan Union, will preside as master of,
ceremonies, and Frank Penneli, '12-

I)ean Vaughan Presides at Discussion
of Railroad Sanitation.
In connection with the regular state
board of health meeting which will be
opened by President V. C. Vaughan,
dean of the medical department, to-
morrow night at Lansing, Mich., the
question of railroad sanitation will be
discussed. Almost all of the trains
passing through Michigan have ob-
served the rigid sanitation laws of the
state, but many of the smaller stations,
that are situated along the variouslines
are inadequately supplied with water,
heat, and ventilation. It is these con-
ditions which have been deprecated
but which the state organization has
now decided to abolish.

Pres. H. B. Hutchins and Dean M. E.
Cooley left Sunday for Washington,
D. C., where they will attend the an-
nual meetings of the Nationtal Agsoei-
ation of State Universities. Pres.
Hutchins will 'read a paper on the re-~

With a new highway material test-
ing laboratory,, the university is in a,
position to do active work in assisting
the people of, this. state to' improve
their highways. Under 'the direction
of the ofte of road. survey at Wash-
ingtorn, D. C., the engineering depart-
ment has built up a highway 'labora-
tory which -is one of the most com-
plete in the middle-west.
The laboratory cost over $2,000,- and
includes among otfer machines. a
standard rattler for testing paving, an
abrasive machine for testing the wear-
ing; qualities- of paving stones, and a
ces ent testing machine., Paving atones
are tested as to their general: desira.
bility' by turning them together with:
iron balls in' an iron cylinder. The'
'dust is wetted and compressed into
cakes, and these,, when dry, are test-
ed for their cohesive qualities by
pounding with hammers falling from
measured distances.
The laboratorywill be used, not only
for :class and research work, but also
for educational -work about the state.
It; to also expected -that' municipal 'ex-
perts will taken advantage of the fa-
cilities offered them by, the university
to~make accurate tests of their propos-
ed, materials. Thus it is hoped that
