as decidedly in favor of a strong suf-
frage club among university women.
"The university has enough women in-
terested in the cause to support a
strong club," said Mrs. G. W. Patter-
son. Miss Fandira Croker, on the oth-
er hand, is of the opinion that Ann Ar-
bor is not large enough to maintain
two separate organizations. "The fac-
ulty wonen and those interested in
the r ovement must unite with the
town people in the cause, and in this
way have a more direct and vital effect
upon the voting element," said Miss
When asked the reason for the lack
of a club among the women, Dean
Jordan .,, "''here are, no doubt, a
great inauy weien in the university
interested in the cause, but I believe,
partly because their time is taken up
by the numerous college activities, and
partly because they do not feel they
could accomplish a great deal, they
have not organized."

A short play composed by V.T. Maw,
'14E, nd Y. F. Jabin Hu, '14, two stu-
dents from China will soon be pre-1
sented under the auspices of the Cox-
da-Fratres Cosmopolitan club. It is
in the nature of a farce,. and while.it
is written in English, it has to do
with a messenger who arrives from a
planet by means of a "Shooting star
Express" and alights in China, where'
he meets a former Chinese graduate
of the University of Michigan, with
whom he holds an animated and hum-
orous discussion regarding. the present
situations, political, social, and mili-
tary, in China. A Parthian shaft or
two will be thrown at the opponents
of woman suffrage in China.
The students received some inspira-
tion from a sketch written by S. Hu,
a Chinese student in Cornell. The
ntw play is being especially written
for the Cosmopolitan club, where it
will be cne of the features of the pro-.
gram. Both the authors ex-

Michigan Men are Active In Affairs of
the Orient.
Unless one has been on the ground
he cannot imagine the prominent part
that Michigan graduates are playing
in the field of politics, religion, and
education in China. In the city of
Peking alone, there are enough to
form a Michigan Alumni club.
The following are some of those
whom just one of the Chinese students
in this university happens to know.
One of the most prominent educa-
tional authorities in the Chinese capi-
tal is Dr. Harry E. King '91, and pro-
fessor of history in the Peking uni-
versity. His wife, formerly Miss Edna
A: King, graduated from Michigan in
the same year, and is professor of
Latin and English in the same col-
At Tsin Wha College, an institution
of students, preparing for a univer-
sity education in the United States,
three Michigan graduates are on the
staff of 18 western instructors. Dr.
Richard A. Bolt, '04, '06 M, is physi-
cal director; and during the recent
revolution was head of a distinguished
red-cross society. Caroll B. Malone,
'09, is instructor in political science,
and served in the Peking volunteer
corps during the outbreak. Miss N.
E. Hughes, '09, is Instructor in Latin.
Miss Myra Jaquet, '07, and R. J.
Dobson, '10, are both connected with
the Methodist Episcopal mission. Miss
Katherine P. King, '09, is, secretary of
the Y. W. C. A., and Miss Louise E.
Miske is principal of the Christian
girls' school.
Large Crowd Dine at Union Yesterday
Turkey and various addenda of a
like nature attracted over 100 diners
to the Union yesterday. Dinner was
served both at noon and night.
The new Forestry bulletin which is
being put out by the board of regents
will soon be off the press. The pam-
phlet will be called "Michigan Trees,"
and will contain complete keys for
summer and winter use by means of
which anyone can determine for him-
self the identity of any tree in Michi-
gan. There will be over 800 drawings
by Mr. Otis, who is at present in
charge of the Botanical Gardens. The
bulletin will be sent free on applica-
tion to any person in the state. Each
high school, or nature club may ob-
tain five copies on application. Spe-
cial articles on the nature of several,
trees will prove of especial interest;
to those who have a slight knowledge
of the subject, while the journal, as
a whole will be very readable, as well
as instructive.
Tickets for Union Dance Sell Rapidly.I
Tickets for the regular Saturday
evening dance at the Michigan Union
went on sale yesterday afternoon, and|
despite the holiday, a good share of
the total allotment of admission cards
was passed over the counter in thet
first hour.

ence will occur at Chicago this after
noon for the purpose, it is believed, o
taking up the "Michigan question.
Oii the result of the meeting will res
in large part the decision of whethe
ornot Michigan will resume athleti
relations with colleges who are mem
beds of the western governing body.
Last week a conference was held a
Chicago between Philip G. Bartelm
of the athletic association, and rep
resentatives of several of the western
conference colleges., What was ac
complished at this meeting, in an in
formal way, has not been given oul
but it is understood on good authori
ty that the situation was thoroughl;
canvassed and at the same time a com
mittee was appointed to present th
matter in proper form before the con
ference meeting.
- Board May Act.
Michigan's board in control of ath
letics will not meet until next week
however, which is taken to mean tha
whatever action the conference may
take, Michigan will act deliberately
on the matter. Should the conference
be willing to have its members resume
relations with Michigan providing the
Wolverines make certain concessions
it is believed Michigan will weigh
those concessions conscientiously be-
fore taking'any action. If the con-
ference demands that Michigan humble
herself abjectly it is probable that
there will be much deliberation be-
fore Michigan decides the matter one
way or the other.
But no matter what the outcome 01
the conference meeting today may be
the results will be watched with inter-
est. Though many of Michigan's
students and alumni have taken a defi-
nite stand on the "conference ques-
tion," and practically admit thai
some change in Michigan's athleti
situation is necessary, there are few
indeed, who know just what Michi-
gan's policy this year will be. No one
knows just how far Michigan offerec
to concede points on Saturday at the
informal meeting, and no one car
foresee just what policy Michigan
will adopt in considering the actior
taken at Friday's meeting of the west-
ern conference.

In an editorial entitled "The All-
American Idea" The New York Even-
ing Mail ridicules the custom of one
man picking a team from the several
thousand players in the country. The
editorial follows:--
"It is taking quite a bit for granted
for any one to see six or seven teams
play, and then calmly select the all-
star eleven from 200 or 300 teams.
"It is within fair range for one to
pick an all-eastern team, an all west-
ern team, an all-southern team, an
all-South Atlantic team, but the all-
American idea disperses itself.
"All-America doesn't of necessity
mean the Atlantic seaboard. There is
quite a strip of country westward and
southward of the Alleghenies. And
once in a while in this meagre
strip they manage to turn out a regu-
lar football player who can catch a
punt or even make a tackle.

all-American team will be the one
