Board of Directors Takes Favorable
Action on Agitated Change
in Old Method of
Giving M's.
Thomas Gilbert Appointed Interelass
Basketball Manager; Starts
Duties at Once.
At a meeting of the board of direct-
ors of the athletic association held
last night, preliminary steps were tak-
en for a change in the manner of
awarding track M's. Ever since early
last year this question has been a
much discussed question on the cam-
pus and opinion seemed almost unan-
'Imous that the track M's were entire-
' ly too hard to win, as a man must
make a point in the eastern collegiates
to obtain the letter. The resolution
which passed the board last night ex-
tended the giving of the letter to men
who win or tie for first in the biggest
outdoor dual meet each year. Also
members of any relay team which wins
at the Penn races will receive the in-
Although this chance will mean a
larger number of the track letters be-
ing given out, the distinction between
men who win the letters at the inter-
collegiates or at the Penn relay races
will still be observed as such men will
be given a cordan, or in common par-
lance a silk shoulder ribbon, besides
the letter. The action of the board of
directors is of course not final as the
resolution must be passed upon favor-
ably by the board in control but it
seems safe to say that this upper body
will heartily endorse it.:
Thomas Gilbert, '13L, of Dillon,
Mont., was appointed as interclass
basketball manager by the board and
will enter on his duties at once, hav-
ing full charge of the season's games.
A hockey committee to assist manager
DuBois and composed of J. V. Sween-
ey, '14L; H. G. Grinnell, '15; and Al.
fred Paull, '16, was approved.
The board also passed another reso-
lution favoring the giving of M caps to
the tennis team with appropriate in-
signia of some kind on it. Hitherto
the tennis team has not had letter caps
but only the small M's. Other routine
business was acted upon but little of
any importance done.
Dean Westbrook Lauds Medical School
Dr. Frank S. Westbrook, dean of
the medical department of the Uni-
versity of Minnesota, addressed the
eighty-fifth annual meeting of the
Washtenaw County Medical society,
last night on the subject, "Modern
Methods of Disease Control." After
the meeting a reception was tendered
Dr. Westbrook in the histological lab-
oratory. Dr. Westbrook highly praised
the work of the Michigan medical de-

Christmas Gargoyle Inaugurates Series
of "What's What and How."
With some sections never known in
Gargoyle history and a line of jokes
apropos to the season, the Christmas
number of the humor book bows to the
public as the best issue of the year.
"What's What and How," consisting
of caricatures of faculty men in action,
a cover design by A. D. Honey, and a
frontispiece by E. S. Everett help to
make the art portion of the boolm dis-
tinctive. A double page diawing and a
series entitled "Bawl Can War" by
"Bill" Fanning, are new in the feature
"Sophomore Rhetoric Themes" are
continued, and "Helpful Hints to
Christmas Givers," as well as a col-
umn of "Dont's" .u ..,
Capt. Paterson and Coach Douglas Will
Address Annual Gathering
of Candidates.
A meeting of all football candidates
for the 1913 team will be held some'
time this week, probably on Wednes-
day, when the outlook will be discuss-,
ed and some plans made. The real
purpose of the meeting is to give out
the usual warning about the men keep-
ing up in studies and lining up the:
freshmen for next year. It is'proba-
ble that Capt. Paterson and Coach
Doglas will address the meeting and'
as Coach Yost has gone south it is evi-
dent that he will not be present.
On account of the meeting there has
been considerable rumor about winter
practice in the gym at which plays
would be perfected and other work
done. But according to the athletic
authorities such a plan is not being
considered and while the men may be
cautioned to keep in shape there will
be no definite plans for winter prac-
tice. Work may be prescribed for
some of the men, particularly the punt-
ers, but so far as regular team work
being done, there is nothing in the ru-
A list has been made up of all avail-
able men and they will be kept under a
sort of surveillance all year particu-
larly in regard "to their college work
so that they may be kept eligible. The
call for the meeting will probably be
issued today or tomorrow.
