Owing\ to the dangers of contagion
in the crowded classrooms and the
lack of suitable accommodations in
case of a serious epidemic, the univer-
sity author ties have advised all stu-
dents to be vaccinated.
Free v cination has been provided
for all students who desire to avail
themselves of the offer. Attention will
be given in the two gymnasiums today,
and Wednesday mornings from 9:00 to
10:00 o'clock.
This arrangement has been in prac-
tice sinr Friday, and about 100 stu-
dents have been treated.
"No, the vaccination is not compul-
sory," said Dean Vaughan, of the med-
ical department. "In this free country
anyone who wants to have smallpox
can have it. However, we would advise
anyone who has not been vaccinated in
the last few years to avail himself of
this opportunity.

Conservation and conservationists
came in for some hard raps at the
hands of Governor John F. Shafroth,
'75, of Colorado, in his address under
the auspices of the Oratorical associa-
tion in University hall last night.
Brandip' the action of the govern
ment in seizing large tracts of lance
the 4estern states for conservation
p pos s as unfair and unjust, Gov-
ern Shafroth asserted that, while
other ections of the country were fat-
tening on this program, it was prov-
ing ruinous to the growth of Colorado
as well as other western states. The
speaker characterized his views as
typical of the west.
"This bugaboo about the exhaustion
of our coal supply and monopoly is an
impossibility," declared Governor
Shafroth. Statistics show that at the.
present rate of consumption Colo-
rado alone, with 371 billions;
of , tons of coal, can keep the en-
tire world supplied for the next 300
years and all the coal producing stat-
es of this country can give the world
all the coal it will need for the next
1,600 years.
"If monopoly should arise, Colorado
can take care of itself better than the
national government can provide. Ev-
en at the present time bills are pend-
ing in the Colorado legislature, as a
result of- which, the mining lands
when developed will be in the hands

Offering figures to show that forty
per cent of the 15,000,000 acres of for-;
est preserves in Colorado are above,
the timber line where trees cannot
grow and thirty per cent more in the
zone below which produce unsaleable
timber, Governor Shafroth declared
that it was a misnomen to call these
lands forest preserves.
"It is fortunate," said Governor
Shafroth in conclusion "that no polit-
ical policies have developed in connec-
tion with conservation. All parties
are presented on both sides of the is-
sue. I believe that Pinchot and the
others are honest in their intentions,,
but they do not know real conditions.-

Indiana, in 1857. He entered the Uni-

his A. B. degree in 1882, and his LL.B.

as probate judge for 16 years, during
that time being chosen director of the

Practice to be Faciliated by New
Starting Device and Other
'While most of the track athletes
considered yesterday as part of their
enforced holiday by reason of the
usurption of their playground by the
junior hoppers, still enough put in
appearance to keep Trainer Farrell
moderately busy. Starting today, the
active part of the indoor training sea-
son gathers speed to prepare the men
for the competition of the early spring
meets. Some of the .candidates have
already been working on the gym
floor since the first of December, bar-
ring the vacation times.
Several improvements in the way of
accessories to the track apparatus
will meet the observation of the re-
turning atheletes. Most note-worthy
of these will be the new starting
cleats, which because of their firm-
ness and the facility with which they
may be adjusted, constitute a decided
improvement over the less firm and
more cumbersome ones they replace.
Built on ideas suggested by Dr. G. A.
May with theaid of Mr. Thomas Ferry
Field ground keeper, their greater
utility and superior convenience. will
make them welcome to the sprinters.
Trainer Farrell believes that Jimmy
Craig will be able to run the quarter
mile on the indoor track, thereby
brightening the chances for a good
relay team in that distance. Craig
will probably not attempt the hurdles
on the gym floor but will save his
knee for the outdoor hurdle competi-
tion. Baier, a last year A. M A. win-
ner, has loomed up as a strong pos-
sibility for membership on the quarter.
mile relay team.
Not too much diligence has been
displayed by the freshmen trackster
in turning out regularly for practices
If all the All Fresh team is going to
make a respectable showing against
the opponents that Director Bartelme
has arranged for them to meet this
year, they will have to reform sudden-
ly and take the matter of praparation
more seriously.. On March 15, the
yearlings stack up with the Varsity
track team of Michigan Agricultural
Colloge in Waterman gymnasium. This
same college will furnish them out-
door competition at Lansing on the
tenth of May.
There still exists a dearth of good
material in the pole-vault and in the
hurdle events Cook, Van Kammen,
and Daskam are vaulting between ten
and eleven feet, but such marks will
never class them as point-winners in
any respectable brand of contention.
