Michigan's indoor track schedule
has been announced as above. Five
meets have been booked by Director
Bartelme for the winter competition,
.including meetings with Syracuse- at
the university of Syracuse and Cornell
at Waterman gymnasium. The lat-
ter event will close the indoor season.
The other events include a prelimi-
nary meeting, a fresh soph contest and
a Varsity meet.
Though the active training for the
indoor work has been taken up in
earnest, owing to the fact that the
men feel that there is plenty of time
after the Christmas holidays, it is ex-
pected that the adoption of the sched-
ule will concentrate the attention of
the track aspirants as soon as vaca-
tion is over, and enable Michigan to
organize a first class team of indoor
The stars of last year's team, includ-
ing "Captain Haff, Bond, Seward,
Haimbaugh, Sargent and Kohler, have
all been taking light conditioning
work during the past few weeks, to-
gether with many of last year's A. M.
A. squad, and the all-fresh team. Af-
ter the holidays it is believed that the
entire squad will be put on strict
training schedule by Trainer Farrell.
Owing to the fact that the seating
capacity of Waterman gymnasium is
limited, committees from the student
council and from the board in control
of athletic, are working on a plan
whereby the matter of accommoda-
tions can be regulated to the satis-
faction of all who desire to attend the
indoor meets, The committees have
not worked out a definite plan as yet,
but they expect to have the matter
well in hand before the first of the

Coach Douglas' Pupils to Meet State
Normal on South Ferry
NO ADMISSION TO BE CHARGED.
* All is set for the soccer game this
afternoon at 2:00 o'clock on Ferry
field between teams representing the
University of Michigan and the Ypsi-
lanti Normal college. Because of the
strangeness of the game that is to be
played and novelty of an athletic con-
test between the uiversity and the
Normal college a large crowd is ex-
pected to take advantage of the free
admission. An Ypsi delegation of the
fair sex is expected to be present in
gala attirings "and may prove a draw-
Coach Douglas labored long and
hard with his charges in the final
practice last night. The scrim-
mage was short, occupying only
the first thirty minutes of the work-
out. Individual coaching was lavish-
ed on the men for the next hour, the
coach giving careful attention to the
methods of blocking kicks without in-
curring the chances of a foul by
touching with the hands- or arms be-
low the elbows, but rather with the
head and body.
At the last moment a few more
straggling candidates turned out, but
the coach in his selection of an eleven
and substitutes to feature today's en-
counter, confined his choice to those
who had the benefit of the practices
during the week.
The game will be called sharply on
the hour and will be played on the
part'of Ferry field which in more hos-
pitable weather serves as a baseball

Publishers of "Announcement Sheet

Complaint has been made by the
editor of the University Bulletin that
students are not using the advantages
offered them by the bulletin. This
news sheet is open to any organfzation
or class on the campus and any.date
which is handed in to the editor will

been that students have the wrong im-

it might only be used for faculty no-

The only requirement necessary for
publication of any item is that it be

Although Seat Sale Has Been Excep-

All in readiness for the pulling of
the curtain on the first night of "Mo'n-
ey," Bulwer's master comedy, the
Comedy club will show tonight at the
Whitney theater what weeks of work
have done in the making of a cast
which its followers predict will give
the snappiest and most favored pro-
duction put on by the Comedy club in
years. Dress rehearsals, which will
be carried on throughout the day at
the Whitney theater, will touch up
what few imperfections remain and by
tonight the Thespians will be in cor-
rect shape fo hanging up a. few dra-
matic laurels . Full confidence is felt
by management and cast alike that
"Money" will meet with much favor
as a play admirably adapted to the
tastes of a student public Curtain
will be called at 8:15 o'clock sharp.
With sets from the Lena Rivers
company which went off the road
some time ago, and with costumes
faithful to the early part of nineteenth
century in England, this production,
will not stand any differenta-
tion from the professional companies
which have found this play a favorite
during the century since it was writK.
When interviewed Mr. Bert St. John
said of the cast and the play ready to
be staged, "I am fully confident that
the Comedy club is well up to the
standard this year. Some real talent
has been uncovered and the comedy
roles are handled in exceptional fash-
ion. The play itself is well fitted for
playing and I agree with the criticism
which said that 'Money' is the best
acting andsbest -acted play of its time."
Seats will be on sale during the day
and up to the. time of theperformance
at the Whitney theater box office, at
prices from 25 cents to $1.00.

ganizations for the 1913 Michiganen-
sian should either be in the hands of

Alpha Nu Society to Hold Mock Trial.
Alpha Nu literary society will hold,'
a mock trial on the case of Jennie
Brice at its regular meeting tonight
at 7:00 o'clock in the society rooms.
Reinald Werrenrath sang his way
into the favor of a big audience last
evening in the third concert of the
Choral Union series, confirming his
reputation as one of the most delight-
ful of American singers. Mr. Wer-
renrath exploited the more popular
type of song in his whole program.
The simplicity and naturalness of his
art, as wellWas the lyric beauty of his
voice, make him peculiarly fitted for
such a program.
Some English and Irish folk-songs
opened the program, and they were
quite perfectly sung, with ease of ut-
terance and charming good humor.
The Grieg songs were of the more un-
miliar ones, and were also in the
'olk-song type. There was also a
group of Indian songs, which Arthur
Whiting has arranged with fine faith-
fulness to their spirit, and which Mr.
Werrenrath sang with good effect.
The program closed with several me-
lodious English songs, and "Danny
Deever" as an encore with interesting
dramatic variations. Most pleasing
of all, there was through all the pro-
gram, and in the comments which the
singer interrupted himself to make,
the revelation of a charming and sin-
Mrs. George B. Rhead deserves
more than the accompanist's usual
modicum of praise for the piano part
of the program. Her accompaniments
were beautiful in tone, and subtly
W ASIB ETI B ALL PRELIMINARIE S
Discussion is rife among the fresh
and junior dents on account of the rul-
ing passed by the council Tuesday ev-
ening in regard to the wearing of
toques. The principal difficulty seems
to be that the dents do not understand
the meaning of the decree. Most of
them are of the opinion that the
council rule will force them to wear
the freshman toque the first year they
are in the department, the soph toque
the second year, and the junior head-
gear during their third year on the
campus. This is the reason' why most
of the dents are against the rule and
have declared that it cannot be en-
The student council rule which has
caused all the trotAble has an entire-
ly different point than the imaginary
one which the dents are arguing. The
council rule provides that a student
should wear the toque which repre-
sents the number of years a man has
spent on the Michigan campus or on
any other collegiate campus whose
credits are accepted by this universi-
ty. For example, if a man has had
a year of collegiate work and then en-
ters the dent department, he will wear
.the soph toque his first year in that
department, the junior the second,
and the senior the third. If he enters
the department, never having had any
previous collegiate work, he will wear
the fresh toque the first year, the
soph toque the second year and the
senior toque the third year. This
last provision is the only exception
to the council's rule. Because of the
fact that the dental department offers
only three years of work the senior
dent, even though he be only in his
third year on the campus is allowed
to wear the senior toque.
Several faculty men were inter-
