Place in Central De-
Michigan won the Central Debating
League championship for 1913 last
night, the standing being: Michigan,
4 judges; Northwestern 3 judges; and
Chicago 2 judges.
The affirmative teams won at home
in every contest on the proposition of
Congressional adoption of the Nation-
al Monetary Commission plan of bank-
ing reform. Michigan defeated Chica-
go unanimously in University Hall,
lost to Northwestern at Evanston by
a 2 to 1 decision, and Chicago defeat-
ed Northwestern in Chicago by the
"Michigan unanimously," announced
Gov. Ferris last night, at the conclu-
sion of one of the most interesting
debates ever held in University Hall.
The Chicago men, as their coach ex-
plained, based their chances upon one
point--and lost. Michigan on the oth-
er hand, had four major points, and
met the chief point of their opponents
with seven arguments.
All of the men are to be commend-
ed upon their excellent work, but the
logical, forceful, and perfectly pre-
sented arguments of Paul Blanshard
stood out from all the others. For
Chicago, Conrad was the most effect-
ive speaker; and there is no question
as to why he led the Colgate Univer-
sity team three times.
The result at Northwestern was
somewhat of a surprise, as a victory
was expected. All of the men on the
negative team are debaters of inter-
collegiate experience, while the home
team was unexperienced in such work.
The fact that the affirmative team won
in all three of the league contests,
however, is significant in showing that
the question might have been a more
happily chosen one.
The only comment in the telegram to
the Daily from Prof. Hollister was that
the contest was a most excellent one,
and that the Michigan men did excep-
tionally well at the home of their op-
The men spoke in the following or-
der, Michigan, having the affirmative,
starting: Lyman S. Hlbert, '14L; W-
A. Hamman,''14L; Bartel J. Jonkman,
'14L; P. K. Cook, '15; Paul B. Blan-

Michigan Man Mocks
-Medicine by Mandolin
"Dean Cooley may I bring my man-
, olin up and play a few Michigan
songs for you?"
The corridors of the Baltimore hos-
pital were lined with people when
"Bos" Gage, '11E, former leader of the
mandolin club started strumming up
his instrument and struck up that
heart stirring melody "The Victots."
Seldom does that indefinable quality,
Michigan spirit manifest itself as well
as in this little example. Gage, who
is practicing his profession in Balti-
more heard that his former dean was
ill in that city and after chasing all
over town, located him in the Johns
Hopkins hospital, and the above in-

Place-Room 101. University Hall.
Time-9:00 a. in.-1:00 p. m.
The' seii-annual election of. the
athletic association will be held today
in University hall from 9:00 to 1:00
o'clock, with four offices to be filled.

of football mmanager interscholastic

all of these men automatically become

done away with and the members will
be required to present coupon num-
ber 12 of their book to secure a ballot.
.'Room 101 of U. hall will be the bal-
loting place and the present board of
directors have announced that no cam-
paigning will be allowed near or
around the doors or halls. No other
identification will be required except
the signed coupon number 12 and it
is expected that this will greatly fa-
cilitate the voting. Owing to the in-
terest in the election it is believed that
a record breaking vote will be cast.

election Xvill come the annual open
meeting of the athletic association in
