Instead of the usual two team com-
petition that has marked the annual
Varsity meet in years previous,an inno-
vation will be tried this season in the
nature of an inter-class meet. Sat-
urday evening the annual Varsity in-
deor meet will be staged and the com-
petition will be between the 1913, 1914,
1915 and 1916 classes.
In previous years it 'has been cus-
tomary for two teams to be chosen,
one led by the Varsity captain, and
the other captained by the oldest or
the most consistent point winning vet-
eran on the squad. Trainer Farrel;
and Captain Haff believe, however,
that this form of competition is largely
artificial. They believe that a four
cornered meet between the four class-
es in the university will develop a
keener spirit of rivalry among the con-
tetants and at the same time foster a
greater amount of interest among the

Mechanical engineers who will make
the annual spring inspection tour will
leave Ann Arbor Thursday irorning,
April 3, for a 15 day trip thro'agh the

will personally conduct the trip, the
expense to each man should not ex-
ceed $60.00.
The party will go directly to Detroit
where they will take the boat for
Cleveland. Friday morning the Brown

American Steel and Wire company in
that city will be visited. On the w ay

The annual Michigan Union bridge
tournament will 'start at the Union

Address

through its local office, has offered tO
donate a building site on the lake,
above the new dam and $1,000 towards
the construction of a club house, to the
Michigan Union Boat club, the organi-
zation of which is still pending,
The gift was obtained through the
instrumentality of Gardiner S. Wil-
liams, and Alexander Dow, general
manager of the Edison Co.
The committee in charge of the or-
;anization of the boat club appointed
one month ago by Pres. E. G. Kemp.
of the Union, has been divided into two
sections, with "Mort" Hunter, '13E,
and George Duffield, '14E, as chairmen.
The section under Hunter is investi-
;ating aquatic sports at other institu-
tions, and Duffield's squad has been
put in charge of the organization of
the club.
The committee on the completion of
its work will submit its findings to a
general meeting of the Michigan Un-
ion members interested in canoeing or
kindred water sports. Officers will,
be elected at that time.
It is proposed to organize the club
on the plan of the average boat club.
The officers of the organization will
be a commodore, vice-commodore, and
three ensigns. Membership in the
club will be open to anyone, but will'
be divided into classes, active and as-
sociate. The active membership will
nclude those who are members of the
Jnion, while the assocate members
will include all those who pay dues.
The first meeting of those interested
in the formation of such a club will be
held in the near future.

today for the men who are not sure of
their ability to try for the qualification

CON UIUC A TION.
(This p1pelF assumes no responsibility
for sent imuents expressed in com-
mun1i tionis.)
Editor, The Michigan.Daily:-
This question of the solicitation of
funds forr the new Union club house is
such an important one that it should
be thoroughly threshed out by mem-
bers of the Union before any further
steps are taken in this direction. The
writer cannot see any merit in the
proposition of uniting the forces of the
Y. M. C. A. with those of the Union in
this campaign for money. On the oth-
er hand there are many positive evils
which would flow from such an involv-
ed course.
The Union is a separate and distinct
organization, and in no way connected
with the Y. M. C. A. For this reason if
ro other, funds should be solicited for
the Union and by-the Union unhamper-
ed by any cooperation with other or-
ganizations. The Union must stand or
fall as an organization on its own mer-
its. There is as little reason in seeking
to join the campaign of the Y. M. C. A.
and the Union for funds as there would
.be in joining the campaign of the Un-
ion with the Corda-Fratres, the Uni-
versity club, and the numerous other
organizations who are desirous of hav-
ing a club house of their own.
When a man is approached for a sub-
scription le wants to subscribe to a
lefinite and positive scheme. He does
not want to be misled into the belief
[hat he is putting his money into a
Union venture and find out later that
part of it went to the Y. M. C. A. build-
ing fund. Nor does he want to be ap-
proached by a solicitor who asks him
either to contribute to one or anoth-
er of two conflicting enterprizes. As
to the first of these objections, we all
recall the trouble that arose when the
alumni found out that the money most
of them intended for a Union was spent
for the Memorial hall. The sane difi-
faulty will be sure to arise if the Y. M.
C. A. and Union cam paigns for funds
are confused. As to the second of
these objetlons,it is poor business pol-I
icy to approach a man and agk him
either to buy Union stock (r Y. M. C.
A. stock. Such a soheitor is. inevita-
bly bound to lail, or the arguments
used in u'-Ing an alumnus to sub-
scribe to the Union fund 'ro entirely
different from those used iD asking one
ito subscribe to the Y. M. C. A. And
