Margin Will Settle

TO DEFEAT HAFF IN QUARTER
Low Hurdles Added This Year and
Points Allowed For
(Special to The Michigan Daily.)
SYRACUSE, N. Y., March 14.-That
the conflict between the Syracuse and
Michigan track teams will be settled
by a narrow margin is assented to by-
the rival trainers in ante-bellum state-
ments. Tom Keane, the Syracuse
track coach,is not in an excellent frame
of mind, be causein the best way he is
able to figure the results, the orange
would only lead by one point. Train-
er Farrell of the Wolverines Is con-
fident of victory, but acknowledges
that his squad will be fortunate to bet-
ter the efforts of their antagonists by
more than eight points.
On the face of the two statements it
would appear as if Michigan were the
favorite, as Keane has figured an or-
angeman to win in events where close
followers of track dope will not ac-
cede this as probable. Bowser, the
colored runner, has made fast time in
the quarter mile in the earlier indoor
meets, but he will have to break rec-
ords if he snatches a first from Haff
of Michigan, not omitting to discount
the strangeness of the track turns to
the visiting flier. It is also a matter
of strong doubt if Syracuse has a man
that can win the pole vault, as two
Yichigan vaulters are reported to be
clearing over eleven feet. This event
% as won at 10 feet, six inches, last
year, and there is no Syracusian cap-
able of going much higher than this,
that will be eligible for competition.

Given a fair chance by the weather
provider, Coach Rickey will lead the
diamond men out to the fair grounds
for the first outdoor workout of the
year this afternoon at 1:00 o'clock.
All baseball candidates without re-
gard to the cuts in the gym are re-
quested to turn out for the open air
If rain should interfere with the
carefully laid plans of the coach, the
regular outfielders and infielders are
to report at the gym at 1:00 o'clock,
and the picked battery men at 1:30.
In the case of the rain falling during
the night and wetting the grounds so;
that the holding of practice is doubt-
ful, the candidates should call at the
gym or the athletic office for the cor-
Attendance at the first outdoor meet-

trying for the team are warned to at-
tend to this notice.

ANNOUNCE RESULTS FROM EAST.
Because of the lack of data on which
to base a comparison of the relative
strengths of the M. A. C. Varsity and
the Michigan All-Fresh teams, the out-
come of their battle in Waterman gym
tonight is absolutely in the dark as
far as reliable predictions are con-
The point winning power of the
freshmen seems to lie in the middle
| and distance events. C. B. Smith will
be eligible to compete, and should al-
lay all fears for the safety of the quar-
ter mile. Uffer is in better condition
than at the time of the fresh soph
meet, so should be able to run away
with the half, as the East Lansing
men are weak in that distance. Lynch
and Richards will attend to the young-
ster's honor in the mile.
No way of estimating the results of
the dashes is available, as the two
teams have practiced on straight-
aways of differing lengths. M. A. C.
supporters claim that in Beatty they
have a hurdler who can best Arm-
strong over the low sticks and press
him hard in the high barrier event.
Michigan freshmen are weak in the
shot put,-with only two entries, while
M. A. C. boasts that Blue can put the
twelve pound weight over 45 feet. This
would be sufficient distance to easily
best the efforts of any of the local tal-
ent. With Benny of of the All-Fresh
ineligible, Loveland should have an
easy time winning the high jump for
M, A. C. The pole vault is liable to de-
velop into a duel between Cross of the
All-Fresh, and Loveland of M. A. C.,
with the victory a toss-up.
All the freshman runners are train-
ed to the minute, and while knowing
nothing of the competition they will
run up against tonight, have the feel-
ing of confidence which is a strong
aid to victory. The first event is call-
ed for 7:30 o'clock.
Reports from the Syracuse-Michigan
meet will be received at the gym dur-
ing the home struggle.

Plans for the coming meet-
ing of the Michigan Academy
of Science and the School-
masters club are rapidly nearing com-
pletion, and when some 1,200 teachers
of the state gather here on April 2, 3,
and 4, men with national reputations
will entertain them with lectures and
reports of their investigations.
The scientists will assemble in the

ical survey will be read.
Dean V. C. Vaughan and Dr. A. F.
Schull will each read a paper on eu-

dition he recently made into Mexico.
The biology section will have charge
of the general meeting in University
hall on Thursday morning and will'
discuss the different phases of their
work before the whole organization.
On Thursday and Friday afternoon
the two organizations will hold 16
conferences in order that they may
meet in smaller groups and discuss
with one another the recent develop-
ments in the particular field in which
they are interested. Thursday evening

seats for any single performance, al-
though if he possesses enough slips
he may buy as high as six seats for

seats. All Union members are urged
to take advantage of the opportunity of
getting these slips today.

"Copy" For Annual Publication
Been Turned in and Shipped
All material for the 1913 Michiganen-
sian has been handed in, and with the
exception of a few minor selections,

In commenting upon the art work
which will make up part of the vol-
ume, Managing Editor Stanley New-

the drawings submitted this year is
much higher than that of any year
since I have been connected with the
publication. This is due, in part, to
the prizes that were offered for the
first time. Several drawings of each
illustration have been handed in and
all have been of a high grade."

WCENES ARE LAID IN SUNNY
LITTLE ITALIAN VILLAGE.
C. C. Harbison, '13, and 31ildred Guil-
ford, '13, Show Especially Well
in Their Parts.
A peaceful street, in a sunny little
Italian village, formed the background
for a remarkably successful bresenta-
tion of Goldini's comedy, "T1rh(' Fan"
by the oratorical association in Uni-
versity Hall last night. The bare
stage had been transformed into a
garden of roses and greens and the
quaint and charming costumes of the
gayly clad senoritas looked as if they
C. C. Harbison, '13, as the gallant
and accommodating Count of Rocca
Marina was admirable, and kept the
audience lauging whenever he was on
the stage. Mildred Guilford, '13, play-
ed remarkably well the part of the hot-
tempered, sharp-tongued, but lovable
Giannina, who is the "cause of all the
trouble." Evaristo, the handsome
young hero, was well, acted by Charles
M. Anderson, '15, and Candida, the ob-
ject of hs affections, was ably present-
ed by Amanda Strom, '13. Coronato
and Crispino the rivals for the hand
of Giannina, were engaged in inter-
esting, and in the case of Crespino,
sucessful intrigue and conspiracy, in
the persons of W. Ray Melton, '13, as
the defeated, and E. Mark Wisdom,
'13, as the victorious, lover. Gertrude,
Candida's aunt, and the peacemaker
for the melancholy lovers, was played
with great merit by Madeline Bird, '13.
Baron Del Cedro, the disappointed
suitor for the hand of Candida was
well acted by D. C. Johnson, '14L. The
minor parts were well handled by J.
J. Reighard, '12, Gladys I. Stowell, '13,
Arleon E. Spellman, '15, Elsie Seitz,
'14, Gaylord H. Chizum, '14, and Will
The production was in charge of

licity were taken care of by Will Shaf-

the play was a success from every

Death 'T'akes One of Five '56 Grads.
Dr. E. M. Jenkins, '56M, one of the
five remaining members of his class,
died at his home in Addison, Michigan,
this week. Dr. Jenkins' death leaves
only four men now living out of 36 who
were graduated from the university in
the class of 1856.
Letters from alumni of different
classes which are published in the
March issue of the Michigan Alumnus
indicate a predominating sentiment in
favor of an immediate return to the
Conference. Various reasons are giv-
en, the most important being that in
recent years Michigan's athletics have
but an inconspicuous place in Western
affairs and that by returning to the
Big Nine they would be revivified; also
that alumni in the states across the
Mississippi are entitled to witness
Michigan games and that this opportu-
nity should be given them.
