JOE HORNER, 'M, INTRODUCES 3
PENTAiTHLON AT SAGINAW.
Joe Horner, '11, one of the Varsity's
old track and general athletic stars,
has recently introduced the Pentathlon
in the Saginaw Y. M. C. A. and boys
in the junior intermediate and senior
divisions have just held their contests.
Horner is chairman of the sports com-
mittee. Back in 1900 when he was a
youngster in Grand Rapids and when,
as history relates, he was one of the
youngsters who looked with awe on
any college athlete, he won a medal
for winning a pentathlon,0contest.
PITTSBURGH PAPER SHOWS
INTEREST IN UNIVERSITY.
Those who think the life of the head
of a university is devoid of pleasantry
and consists merely of appearing
stern, may be disillusioned by the
following story which appeared in a
Pittsburgh daily paper:
SENIOR ENGINEERS AND LITS
TO DINE TOGETHER TONIGHT
Senior classes of the engineering and
literary department will hold their
first joint dinner of the year at the
"Jinx" Otto will act as toastmaster
and will call on "Ed" Lazear, presi-
dent of the senior engineers and
"Dick" Dickenson, recently elected
president of the senior lits, for toasts.
Dean M. E. Cooley, and David Friday
will be the guests of the classes.
The "Darbs Octette," the stars of
"Camp Davis," will render several vo-
cal selections and to balance their en-
deavors the "I should worry" quar-
tette will represent the senior lits.

the good effects of this work be shat-
tered by a few strokes of the editorial
pen? Do the writers of the recent un-
desirable incident not realize the light
in which the outsider looks upon this
sort of thing? The only effect which
can be accomplished by setting to light
this misdeed of one night, is to give
the outsider an indelible impression
of an institution which harbors noth-
ing but an army of rowdies. We, the
students of the the university know
how wrong such an impression would
be; we know that we attend one of
the best-condticted and cleanest of uni-
versities; but the outsider will never,
know it, if only news of evil is spread
all about and played-up in large head-
lines in the newspapers.
If only there had been a few influ-
ential persons on hand to champion
the cause of the university at the crit-
ical moment, all bad advertising
could have been checked. But as there
were no hindrances, the news report-

The first speaker leaned over closer
to his unknown companion and asked
in a more or less confidential tone:
"Did you ever know one of those
college presidents that really amount-
ed to anything?"
"Hum-m," grunted the other man
non-committally. Which was- about
all he could do. He happened to be
Dr. H. B. Hutchins, president of the
University of Michigan."

is an article by J. H. Townley on

Barristers, Vulcans and Druids will
hold their annual "B-V-D" dance Fri-1
day evening, Mach 21, at the Michigan
Union. While, as in the past, the£
event will be formal, this year's com-'
mittee has taken a step intended to
make it less elaborate by relieving the
men who attend of providing flowers
for the fair ones.
"Flowers have been eliminated from
the J-Hop and it is merely in keeping
with a general tendency on the campus
that we have taken this action for our
dance," said Frank Weaver, '13E, of
the Vulcans, last night.
The Vulcans are preparing a number
of novelties to be introduced at the
(lance. Arrangements have been made
to provide for 75 couples. The chap-
erones will be honorary members of
the three organizations. Music will
be furnished by the original Saxo-
phone Trio of Columbus.
Iunior Iop Committee to Meet Today.
Members of the 1914 Junior Hop
committee will meet this afternoon at
4:30 o'clock at the Alpha Delta Phi
house. The meeting has been called
by General Chairman William Diek-
ema to clear up all remaining details
of the recent Hop and to discuss the
action of the university senate in its
abolishment of the annual party.

Edmund Rostand, who has achieved
more popularity in American theaters
than any other modern French play-
right will be the subject of a talk by'
William T. Dougherty, '13, in Tappan
hall this afternoon at 5 o'clock. This
is the first time that a student has
ever delivered an address as a part
of the regular Cercle Francaise course.
The author of "Chantecler" and
"Cyrano" hardly needs an introduc-
tion to Ann Arbor when taken from
the standpoint of a writer of plays.
Mr. Dougherty will, however, deal
more with the Rostand of private life,
showing something of the man and
his character in relation to his plays.
The lecture will be given in French
and will be open to holders of the
Senior Lits to Elect Minor Officers.
Class day officers will be elected by
the senior lits this afternoon at 4:00
o'clock in Tappan hall. The positions
to be filled are historian, poet, prophet-
ess, orator and toastmaster. At this
meeting the newly elected president,
Selden S. Dickinson, will be installed.
Journalists to Hear Nation Editor.
"The Need of Reaction in Journal-
ism" will be the subject of an address
which Paul E. More, editor of The
Nation will deliver before Prof.
Scott's class in journalism April 4. Mr.
More is well known throughout the
country as a literary critic and is the
author of many widely read essays.
