In Most of the Conference Schools
the Members of the Various
Teams Eat Together at,
One Table.
Members of Teams Eating at Train.
ug Tables Stand Entire
Expense of Board.
Different ways of meeting the train-
ilg question are employed at the sev-
eral schools in the Western Confer-
ence. Every year, different stories as
to the evasion of the rule against
training tables become prevalent, but
proof of violations has not yet been
offered. If there have been violations
in the past of which there is no evi-
dence, there have been no violations
this year, in the opinion of students in
close touch with the situations at the
schools In the Conference.
At Illinois, the men started the year
by eating together at one place, but at
the end of a week gave the plan up.
At this training table each man paid
the entire cost of the board. During
the remainder of te season, the team
members ate at their respective fra-
ternity houses or at the student eat-
ing houses.
Commencing just before the big
games, the Wisconsin football squad,
including the reserves, ate at a com-
mon table. The rate paid by the men
approximated $4.25 a week, which is
the average rate at the Madison fra-
ternity houses. This training table is
a regular fixture at the Badger school,
and the plan is adopted not only for
the football team but for the track
and crew teams. The men pay their
own expenses at the table, a fact
which results in non-attendance on
the part of some of the athletes who
are unable to stand the expense. The
table is maintained at an eating house
open to the rest of the student body.
Wisconsin Has Similar Plan.
What amounts practically to the
same plan as at Wisconsin is followed
out at Minnesota. Practice continues
through until about 6:00 o'clock in
the afternoon. By the time the men
are dressed, it is near to 7:00 o'clock,
and at the end of rule quiz, all go to
a restaurant and order what they
want at their own expense. At both
Minnesota and Wisconsin, the train-
ers advise as to the kind of food. At
neither school do the men meet to-
gether at the breakfast hour.
At Chicago, the football men ate to-
gether but three times during the
past season. At other times, they ate
at their different fraternity houses, at
the commons, or at other eating plac-
es, The average rate of board at Chi-
cago is from $4.00 to $4.50.
The situation at Northwestern is a
novel one. Owing to the fact that
many of the Northwestern students
are in attendance at the city depart-
ments of the school, which are in Chi-
cago, the fraternity houses open their
doors to all athletes trying for the
teams whether members of the fra-
ternity or not, as an inducement to
draw them out to the Evanston cam-
pus. Each man pays the fraternity
at which he is staying, the same rate
of board which is paid by the frater-
nity members.

Scarcity of Tree Seeds Forces Pets to
Depend Upon Human Friends.
According to Prof. Filibert Roth
the little grey squirrels around town.
will have to depend largely upon their
human friends this winter. This is ne-
cessitated by the almost total failure
of the crop of tree seeds this sum-
mer. Unable to rely upon nature, the
"campus pets" have been seeking food
from garbage cans, and begging all
they can get from pedestrians. Nuts
are not necessary for the little fellows
since they will gladly nibble at an ap-
ple core or even potato peelings. Un-
less something is done for them, Prof.
Roth says that they will die by the
dozen before .the winter is half over.

vised to purchase their tickets early
Prof. James P. Bird, secretary of the
engineering department, will act as
toastmaster and will call upon a num-
ber of speakers who are well known in
all lines of campus activity. Prof.
R. W. Aigler, of the law department
will be the faculty speaker and will
discuss .the "Athletic Association" from
the faculty point of view. Frank Mur-
phy, '14L, will speak on the same sub-
ject from the student standpoint. Ja-
cob Crane, '13E, is scheduled to talk
on "Campus Organizations" and their
over development. "The Relation of
a College to a Man After Graduation,"
will be d4scussed by Donald Melhorn,
Sam Adcelsdorf, '14L, under the aus-,
pices of "The Mimes," will give a Ger-
man-English monologue. Adelsdorff
was prominently connected with dra-
matics at the University of Chicago
while a student there..
All members of the dinner commit-
tees, who are selling tickets, are ask-
ed to communicate with F. B. Powers,
the chairman, this afternoon in re-
gard to the sale.
Graduate Club will Meet Friday.
The Graduate club will assemble at
Barbour gym Friday evening at 7:30
o'clock for an informal gathering,
which is intended chiefly to renew
and develop acquaintances started
earlier in the year. For various rea-
sons a number of graduate students
have been unable to attend the past
gatherings of the club and a special
effort will be made to welcome them
at the coming party.

Plans for Year's Work in New Sport
Will be Discussed Tomor
Tow Night.
With the advent of winter, hockey
will make its bow to the sport loving
public as an inter-departmental game,
for the second season. F. W. DuBois,
as manager, has sent out a call for
all men interested in the game to meet
with him in the trophy room of Wat-
erman gym at 7:00 o'clock tomorrow
night when he will outline the plans
for the coming year. An effort will
be made to obtain the presence of
Prentis G. Douglas, of socwer fame,
who has been delegated by the athletic
association to coach the puck-chasers.
Due to the great interest that was
shown by the students last year in
the game of hockey, the athletic asso-
ciation-has been influenced to take a
hand in its development at the univer-
sity. Since the establishment of the
blanket tax the association has desir-
ed to interest a greater number of stu-
dents personally in some form of ath-
letics that the tax may directly bene-
fit them and give exercise to more of
the student body. Hockey demonstra-
ted last year that it appealed to the
students and as a result the athletic
association has perfected plans for
the flooding of two rinks on Ferry
field and has already begun the build-
ing up of embankments. Lights will
be erected over the skating surface,
making feasible the playing of sched-
uled games at night. When not in
use by the teams representing depart-
ments, the rinks will be free to all
who play the game or wish to learn.
If weather conditions permit freez-
ing the rinks will be put into shape
immediately after the Christmas
holidays and the first of the schedul-
ed contests be arranged. As was the
practice last year, numerals will again
be given to the team members that
win the campus championship and al-
so to the runners-up.
Barbour "Tent" Will Contain a Great
Exhibition of Side Shows
and Animal4.
A novelty in the entertainment line
will be. introduced next Saturday af-
ternoon when the senior lits stage
their big circus at Barbour gym. It
is promised that the very latest thing
in animals will be seen and an entirely
new variety of side-shows will be call-
ed to the attention by a trained corps
of barkers. Pink lemonade, pop-corn,
squawkers and the other regalia which
are the necessary attendants of a cir-
cus will be in evidence. The perform-
ance in the main tent will begin at
2:00 o'clock and as reserved seats
may be obtained for the small sum of
25 cents it is expected the entire class
will turn out to the "big circus."
Tickets may be obtained from the
committee in charge consisting of Ag-
nes Parkes, Mercedes de Goenaga,
Florence Swinton, Viona Colman, Max
Kuhr, Eben Lane, John Towler and
Rolfe Spinning.
Hold Final Deutseher Verein Tryouts.
The final tryouts for the Deutscher
Verein play will be held this after-
noon at 5:00 o'clock in room 203, U.
H. Anyone who wishes to try out

may do so at this time.
Earl Moore Conducts Rehearsal.
In the absence of Mr. Stanley, Earl
Moore acted as conductor last even-
ing in the weekly rehearsal of the
Choral Union.

First Dress Rehearsals With Special
Scenery and Costumes to be
Held Next Week.
With less than two weeks of prac-
tice before them, the players of the
Comedy club who are daily at work in
Sarah Caswell Angell hall under the
direction of Bert St. John, are devel-
oping a production that is going to
surprise Ann Arbor in the dramatic
line. "Money," Bulwer's popular
comedy is offering more possibilities
at each rehearsal, and, comedy of a
high order is being uncovered for the
performance at the Whitney on Sat-
urday evening, December y14.
Of the'early Victorian society, "Mon-
ey" is contended to be one of the
most faithful mirrors of the foppish
parvenu, nouveau riche type of soci-
ety for which that epoch is memora-
ble in the history of social develop-
ment. The play is meagre in its plot,
but replete in the comic which can
not be appreciated until the drama
has been acted.
Costumes have been ordered and
they are -promised to correspond with
the same quaint garbs which were
worn by the Macready players who
staged this play at the Court Theatre
in London in 1840.
Scenic effects are under way and
are contracted for delivery in Ann Ar-
bor next week. Dress rehearsals on
the Whitney stage will be held the
early part of next week, and promise
of a few surprises to Comedy club
followers is the assurance of those
who are watching the play develop.
The special souvenir Comedy club
supplement will be inserted in The
Michigan Daily next Sunday. It willj
feature the cnts of the playes, with
miscellaneous writeups on the play-
ers, on the Comedy club and upon the
shallow but entertaining Bulwer.
As usual the special Junior Hop
feature production will be given on
that occasion. Saturday afternoon,'
February 7 has been arranged for by
the club for that engagement.
embers of Anierican Association

One of the latest additions to the
equipment of the architectural de-
partment is a Corinthian Capital, from

the Roman temple, at Cori, Italy. The
Capital was recently purchased by the
university, and will b4 put on exhibi-
tion in room 448 of the new engineer-
ing building. It will be used for il-
lustration and design, and for the use
of classes in free hand drawing.
