SOPH LITS BEGIN SOCIAL
PROGRAM WITH A SMOKER
Eighty members of the soph lit class+
were present at its initial smoker of
the year. Prof. David Friday of the
economics department spoke on both
the humorous an'd the serious side of
university life. H. L. Kennedy spoke
on the basketball prospects of the com-
ing season. "Chet" Lang, representing
the social committee, announced that
the first class dance will be given at
the Union on Dec. 4.
WILL PRESENT A
The Flonzaley Quartet will give the
second concert of the Choral Union
series on Monday evening, November
25, in University Haill. It is five years
since this famous quartet made its
first appearance in Ann Arbor, at the
time of its first journey of conquest to
America. It now stands as one of the
greatest chamber-music organizations
in the world, and by consistent playing
each year in Europe and America, is
constantly winning more laurels. The
personnel of the quartet remains the
same this year as before.
Temperamentally they are well fit-
ted for their work, and the fact that
they do not have to consider the finan-
cial side in working out their pro-
'grams and policies means much to
them in their art. This organization
is unique in this respect, since all the
other great quartets are made up of'
musicians who devote a large part of
their time to teaching, solo work and
various other activities.
Owing to the fact that a goodly num-
ber of general admission tickets ad-
mitting to the one concert only were
sold at the date of the Schumann-
Heink concert, there is now a limited
number of tickets available for the
Flonzaley concert and the remaining
concerts on the series, which will be
disposed of in the order of application.
When this number is exhausted, it will
be impossible to secure more tickets
of any kind, since the legal restric-
tions forbid the selling of more tick-
ets of any kind than the seating capac-

Dr. Parkin, in speaking before the
National Association of American Uni..-
versities, which is now in session at
Washington, D. C., stated that he did
not see how some of our graduates
got into Oxford and intimated that cer-

their personal or financial standing.
"if Dr. Parkin has been corrtctly

hits only the Oxford committees which
have to do with the examination ques-

United States in sealed envelopes and
are not opened until the hour of ex-
amination. After being filled out, they
are returned by re;;istered mail to
England to be graded.
"All persons who pass the examina-~

grades have been received chose one
candidate who best fills other require-
ments of the rules, but the committees
have nothing to do with the tests inl

Alfred F. Linduer, '16, the athlete of
Buffalo N. Y., died at 3:20 this morn-

since Nov. 4, when he was first taken
to the University hospital. Last night
he ceased to be delirious but the blood

improvements at times, his condition
has admitted no chance of recovery
since he first became ill.,
Lindner graduated last year from
the Lafayette high school in Buffalo.
During his high school career he was
prominent as an athlete and was cap-

school. By winning a place on the
fresh relay team, he was the first

Lured on by the balmy Indian sum-

continue to kick and drible the inflated
sphere well. up and down their partic-
ular section of Ferry field.
With but faint prospects of another
public contest being arranged, the soc-
cer practices have been attracting on-
ly the most ardent devotees of the game
during the past two weeks. As the
number of these does not exceed twen-
ty it is highly improbable that the
Ferry field club house will be kept
open after Thanksgiving, which is the
date that preparations have been made
to close it.
In the brief period of time that the
University of Michigan has known the
game of soccer football, it has gained
a firm hold on the affections of fifty
students who participated in its play-
ing this fall and on many who were in-
bition game between the halves of a
freshman football match. Soccer may

Unwilling to wait until the board of
regents reach a decision on the peti-
tion for the encouragement of indoor
sports, followers of the arts of boxing
and fencing have engaged the services
of Major Burdette as instructor, and
have arranged with him for the use
of his private gymnasium every Wed-
nesday night, beginning next week.
During the season which lasts until
spring vacation, a regular series of
contests will be staged in both events
and as a closing climax, a boxing and
fencing tournament will be held. If
the regents pass favorably on the peti-
tion-, the club will abandon its projects
and go back Ito Waterman gymnasium
where all the facilities for the culti-
vation of its sports, such as floor space
and instruction would be furnished
free of cost. Because some may wish
to join in this movement, who were
not present when the plans were dis-

Alexander Winshell, former professor
of geology in this university, which
were recently unearthed in the state
capitol at Lansing, are the property
of the Michigan Geological and Biolog-

When this work of Prof. Winshell
was first completed in the early 40's
or 50's, printing had not reached its
present stage of perfection, and the
firm which expected to publish the
manuscripts in book form refused to
do so on account of the expensefor
