Union Members Will Have Another
Opportunity to Get Slips
For Tickets.
Union members may procure slips
again on Monday afternoon from 2:00
o'clock to 5:00 o'clock which will en-
title them to purchase six tickets for
any one performance of the opera. The

About 600 of the slips were given out
yesterday and those who did not get
them should do so tomorrow afternoon.
Membership cards must be presented
and no tickets will be sold at the seat
sale, for members, without slips.
The entire act was rehearsed yester-
day morning with the orchestra and
Director Bert St. John was pleased
with the showing. He is enthusiastic
about the music, which is said to be
the best that has ever been written
for a Union opera. The supply of
wooden legs for the Jerry Bones chor-
is here and the men have been fitted
up in regular "sea dog" style. This
with the waiters' chorus promises to
be a distinctive feature of the show.
Immediately after yesterday's rehears-
al Director St. John left for Detroit
where he will remain until Monday.
There will be a general rehearsal
of the whole cast Monday evening at
7:00 o'clock and the Jerry Bones and

Active campaigning for education in
dramatic standards was determined by
the Ann Arbor branch of the Drama
League of America, composed of mem-
bers of faculty, students and towns-
people, at its meeting in the high
school auditorium Friday. Mrs. A. L.
Ladd was chosen delegate to the an-
nual convention in Chicago, April 24-
26. It was decided to invite prominent
actors and dramatists to speak before
the association, and several small
plays may be givn for members only.
The league, which was formed here
December 11, 1912, and which has its
headquarters in Chicago, has for its
primary purpos the securing of the
best companies 'n the best plays for
Ann Arbor. It is expected that the
Drama league will cooperate with the
other campus dramatic organizations
in several plays.
The present small reading clubs are
studying modern plays and drama
study classes may be established. Any
one interested may become a member
upon application to the secretary,
Miss Annie Langley. The membership
fee is $1.00 and a special rate for stu-
dents is 50 cents. The officers are:
Mrs. A. L. Ladd, president; Mrs. Maria
Peel, treasurer; Prof. T. C. Trueblood,
1st vice-president, and Prof. A. H.
Lloyd, 2nd vice-president.

It took Champ 16 minutes to throw
Doyle, the last year's champion. From
the first he was the aggressive and
kept his opponent on the defense
throughout the struggle.
In the second match, Caswell work-

heavier adversary to the floor. The
winner showed more science during
the entire 23 minutes, but the superior
strength of Crane kept him from get-
ting a fall in a shorter time.
Amtsbeuchler had little trouble in
winning the championship from
Harris and wrestled only six
minutes before he had him
downed on the "scissor" hold.
Harris showed some clever work in
breaking from the holds of his superi-

most had him pinned down.
Watson struggled 20 minutes before
he could throw Morris who outweighed
him by 20 pounds or more. This leav-

Michigan started the inter-collegi-
ate track world by running away from
Syracuse athletes in a dual meet on
their home ground to a score of 55 1-2
to 21 1-2 last night. This is the first
time that a Orange track team has
gone down to defeat in Archbold gym-
nasium. The defeat was decisive in
every particular, the Michigan stars
scoring nine firsts, three seconds and
tieing for second in one event. The
meet was featured by the hurdling of
Jimmy Craig, the individual point
winner with ten tallies, the record
breaking half mile by Carver, and the
running of Haff in the quarter mile
against Bowser.
Start Winning With Shot Put.
Kohler and Smith, both of Michigan
set the pace for their team-mates by
shutting the Syracuse men out of the
shot put..1
In the low hurdle race which was
not on the program of last year's
meet, and proved to feed Craig's totals,
he wrested the first pace from
Chamberlain in a contest fought
through all the sticks and decided in
the final sprint. When the high hur-
dles were run, Craig repeated. A sur-
prise was sprung when Jansen entered
this race and displaced a Syracusian
for second.
Did Not Place i 40 Yard Dash,
The one event in which Michigan did
not gain a place in the totals was the
40 yard dash, where Robertson was ac-
corded first and Bowser second. Syr-,
acuse runners confessed that they be-
lieved Seward to have won, but in this
view they were not upheld by the
Win Unlooked-for Points.
Five unexpected points were added'
to the Michigan roster through the
prowess of Carver in the half mile,'
who pressed by the redoubtable Taylor,
broke the gym record by a time of
2:04. The runners neared the tape on
the last lap,with the Syracuse man and
the Michigan representative breast to
breast, Carver won by inches only.
Everyone was especially waiting the
fight between Haff of Michigan and
Bowser, the colored wearer of the Or-
ange in the quarter mile. Familiarity
with the track was predicted to turn
the balance in favor of the negro, but
Haff,running with wonderful strength,
upset the predictions by nosing out
his opponent by a foot. His time was
also 1-5 of a second short of that made
by Reidpath last year.j
Haimbaugh had no trouble in ap-
propriating the mile for the Wolver-
ines, and Smith garnered the second
berth for Michigan without being push-
ed. He improved on last year's figure
by a cut of over two seconds, register-
ing 4 minutes and 34 seconds.
High Jump and Vault Are Easy.
First in the high jump went to Sar-
gent, who last year established the
gym record with a leap of 6 feet, 1
inch, but failed to repeat, clearing 50
feet, 11 1-2 inches. Cortwright of Syr-
acuse copped the remaining three
points over the work of White of Mich-
Cook had it all his way in the pole

Italler undi McCormick Will Manage

Louis Haller, '14L, and Malcolm Mc-

pointments were made by the board
of control of student publications at a
meeting held yesterday afternoon in
Prof. Scott's office.
Bruce Miles, '14, was chosen busi-
ness manager of the 1913 student di-
rectory at the same time. The editors
for the latter publication were not con-
sidered at the meeting and will not be
appointed until later in the year.
vault, leaving Daskam and Cortwright
to fight for the remaining four count-
ers. This dual ended in a tie. Cook's
height was 11 feet.
Relay Team is a Surprise.
The relay was'counted upon by the
Orangemen as their particular proper-
ty, but the cold test of competition did
not bear them out in this assertion, as
the Michigan quartet, composed of
Haff, Jansen, Baier, and Craig led
them to the finish by a yard, destroy-
ing the gym record. Time was 2:18
3-5. Critics of the track game were
united in declaring that Michigan was
represented by the most perfectly bal-
anced team that had ever competed in
the Syracuse gym.

'Shot put-Kohler (M) first ; Smith
(M) second; distance 44 feet 7 1-2
