MEMBERS OF VISITING BODY
MOSTlY MICHIGAI ALUMMN.L
On account of the marked lack of
interest shown by the student body in
securing tickets for the three indoor
track meets, open to all members of
the association, namely, the prelimina-
ry, Varsity, and M. A. C.-All-fresh, the
athletic.;inlce ,will' remain open from
9:00 a. in. to 5:30 p. m. today for the
purpose of distributing admission
cards among the members,.
Absolutely no one will be admitted
to the events this season unless he has
previously secured the proper en-
trance ticket for that particular meet
at the association office today in ex-
change for yellow coupon, number 13.

granted upon the presentation. of the
yellow books a't the door.

part in the events, must also ,get ad-
mission cards which will entitle the

of the meets. These contestant admis-
sion cards may also be procured at the
office today at the hours named above.
It is necessary that every one who ex-
pects to attend any of the meets 'must
provide himself, with some form of
ticket which ,will be furnished him

As has been prviously announced,
he association is making this call for

every member of the association will
have an equal opoptrunity to attend
the sanie number of meets. The pre-
.iminary, Varsity, and M. A C.-All
'resh events have been opened to the
student body at large. Since it would

>een opened to all members,each mem-
)er being allowed to attend one of the
:hree. A system of drawing has been
used, and the event of these three

Legislators Inspet Law Department.
A committee of legislators from
Lansing was in town yesterday in-
specting the law department.. The
committeemen snoke briefly to a large
. Prof. C. J. Tilden, head of the depart-
-ment of engineering mechanics, last
night wired his acceptance to the offer,
made him last month, of the chair of
civil engineering at Johns Hopkin
University at Baltimore Md. He will
receive a salary of $5,000, which is con-
siderably larger than that which he
Prof. Tilden became an instructor
in the civi engineering department
bore in 1904, and was made assistant
professor in 1906. In 1908 he was
made -unior -professor of civil engi-
neering and in 1911 became head of
the new department of engineering
mechanics, which was created at this
Since he has been at Michigan, Prof.
Tilden has received many flattering
offers, one from Harvard University
four years aw, and another, and at-
tractive position with the government
in Washmington, in 1911. He refused
both these offers and it was following
the latter that the new department of
engineering mechanics was created
with Prof. Tilden at its head.
BANDSTAND IS TO BE VACANT
Band Coicerts Not to be Given, Due'
to Protesis of Book-
According to "Ike" Fischer, leader
of the.band, there will be no spring
concerts given by that organization
this year. In the past it has been the,
ustom of the university band to give
concerts in the band stand on the
campus for the benefit of any who
wished to hear them. Last year early
in the second semester the open air
home of the musicians was moved
rom the cinity of Tappan oak to a
point southwest of the chemistry;
building, so that the playing might not
rdsturb the students in the library.
Concerts were given during the latter'
part of the year once every week or
two and afforded much enjoyment to
the harmony lovers of Ann Arbor, as
was attested by the crowds that usu-
ally turned out to these entertain-
The reason that was given by Fisch-
er for discontinuing this practice was
that many protests had come in last
year from students wishing to study
in the library, and also from the au-
thorities on account of the noise, so
that it was thought best not to hold'
the twilight sessions this year. This
will also mean that the band will not
be organized again until next fall.

DANCE HAVE RAPID SALEa-
All but ten of the 100 tickets for

tonight, have been sold and undoubt-,
edly these. will be disposed of today.j
Dancing will start promptly at 9:00s
o'clock as usual. The committee- in
Committees appointed by both hous-
es of the legislature to supervise the
needs of the university were in the
city yesterday looking over the cam-
pus. Especial attention was paid to
the want of a new science building for
which the university is asking an ap-
propriation of $375,000. The legisla-
tors seemed to be favorably impressed
that a new building to house
the science departments of the
university was greatly in demand and
thought that the amount asked would
be granted by the legislature.
The members of the committee that
were in the city are as. follows: L. D.
Verdier, '99, '01L; D. F. Warner, '83L,
C. H. McBride, '96L; W. J. Nash, '05L,
and G. L. Weadock.
The senior law class was addressed
by each member of the comimttee yes-
terday afternoon. Advice as to the fu-
ture and reminiscent''tales of the days
which were spent in the law depart-
ment was the subject of the talks.
President Hutchins entertained the
committee at luncheon yesterday at

More than 100 fen have now been
examined by the student council in its
investigation of the fracas on the night
of the Hop, when a crowd composed
partly of students and partly of towns-
people attempted to force its way into

been found guilty will be dealt wtl

probably no more meetings will be
held until the first of next week.
No details or results of the coun
cil's investigation have been made
public as th councilmen believe that
their investigation can be more effica..
cious if the campus is not informed,
as to its actions. However, council of-
ficials have declared that a full report
of the results of the proceedings wil
be published as soon as the probe is
The method which has been used by
the council in the investigation is as
follows: Four committees consisting
of all the conucilmen have met during
the afternoon and examined the men
who were believed to know something
of the affair and then the results re
reported to the council assembl n

According to the word of Trailier
"Steve" Farrell of the Michigan track
team,-and he ought to know if there
is anyone who can foretell the outcome
of a track meet,-the men of the class
of 1916 are liable to spring some sur-
prises when they compete with the
Varsity cagdidates in the first idooi-
meet of the season this evening.
While Trainer Farrell has devoted
a' great -deal 'o his time to the men
who showed so well last season, that
they have excellent opportunities of
winning the coveted "M" this year, he'
has had ample opportunity to observe
the work of the first year men, The
fact that over fifty youngstrs turned
out for the first meeting of theAll-
Fresh track- candidates would alone
show the interest being taken by the -
1916 men, were- it the only basis for
judgment. BuIt there are other g
for judgment. The youngsters have
been working faithfully and earnestly
and such work as they hve'ben put-
ting in, is sure to have its reward in
the opinion of Michgan' trainer.
In addition to the antiiated h Fw-
in- of the freshmen, the mi19eet .is
pected to bring, out some 01tir 0
