Vere L. McCarthy, '13L, manager of
the "<r ,ity baseball team has been
oblged to resign his position on ac-
c(unt of unforeseen press of college
work. McCarthy submitted his res-
ignation at a meeting of the board of
directors of the athletic association
yesterday afternoon, but it was decid-
ed by the board not to allow the res-
ignation to go into effect until his suc-
cessor is appointed. It is probable
th a new baseball manager will be
appointed at a meeting of the board
called for this afternoon.
"The amount of work I am carrying
in order to graduate requires so much
tim," said McCarthy last evening,
'that I find I must give up my outside
activities. This was entirely unfor-
seen by me, and needless to say I re-

idently discovered the body of Ella

earching parties they noticed a string
oating on the surface of the river
bout 100 feet below the Whitmore
oad bridge. They investigated and
iscovered it was attached to the wo-
van's clothing.
The authorities were notified but
ould not raise the body until the
and had been shovelled away. Miss
.ysdorp's father took charge of the
emains and accompanied them to the
mily hbme at Spring lake yester-
ay afternoon.
Miss Rysdorp, Archie Crandall, '16,
nd John Bacon, '15 were drowned
a Sunday, March 30 when their
anoe was sucked into the turbine
ues at the new Barton dam. Jane
icks, '15, who was the fourth mem-
er of the party was rescued by Wal-

I her companions slip from sight.

Represents Michigan in Inter-state
Peace Contest to Be Held
Friday Night.



Michigan will be represented in the
Central Inter-state Peace contest at
Goshen, Indiana, Friday,, April 25, by
Paul Blanshard, '14, who won the
Michigan State Peace contest at Ypsi-
lanti last month.
There will be representatives of five
states competing in this contest, and
the winner will go into the national
contest against the winners of the
western and eastern inter-state con-
tests. Last year there were only two
inter-state contests, and the year be-
fore, only one, which was the national
contest; but this year so many more
colleges are represented that three
divisions have been made.
Ray B. Weavr, of Carroll College,
will represent Wisconsin, and E. A.
Hollowell, of Earlham College, is the
speaker for Indiana; but the Ohio
State contest was not held last Fri-
day, and it is not yet known here who
won. Pennsylvania will probably also
be in this group, rather than in the
eastern section.
The western contest will be held in
St. Louis May 3, Illinois, Iowa, Missou-
ri, Nebraska, and South Dakota being
the states represented. New York,
New England, Virginia, and the Caro-
linas comprise the eastern section.
Blanshard will deliver his oration,
"The Evolution of Patriotism," in Uni-
versity Hall Thursday morning at
10:30 o'clock; and will leave that af-
ternoon, accompanied by Pro'. T. C.
Trueblood, for Goshen.
The student council committee on
disciplinary measures will report
back to the council at a meeting
which will be held to-night in room

First Annual Walking Stick 'Assump-
tion Day to Be Held
Senior lits, engineers, laws and
dents will combine tomorrow after-
noon and evening in the celebration of
the first cane day in the history of the
university. The main features of the
day will be the attending of the Mich-
igan-Georgia game, an entertainment'
by the musical clubs, and the first all
senior sing of the season. The entire
celebration will be informal.
Seniors of the four departments,
who proudly swing their canes on sun-,
ny afternoons, will assemble at the
Ferry field gates before the game at
4:05 o'clock. They will then enter,
the grandstand in a body, where a spe-
cial block of seats will be reserved for
them. After the game the seniors will
advance up State street in an informal
group, after which they will disband
At 7:15 the seniors and their walk-
ing sticks will again assemble at thet
campus band-stand, where the musical
clubs will be ready to entertain them
with an open-air concert. After the
close of the entertainment by the mu-
sical clubs, the senior cane wearers
will join in the first all senior sing
of this season.
It is expected that this informal cel-i
ebration will establish the custom of;
wearing canes as a senior emblem as

follow the lunch. Tickets can be pro-

After three months of vacillating ex-
ile, the tango came into its own- at the
hands of the Michigan Union dance
committee at its meeting' Sunday af
ternoon. Hereafter five numbers will
be devoted to the tango every
Saturday night. Tango music will be
played for these dances, and on these
occasions only,, the committeemen and
chaperones will look on in an uncon-
cerned manner, while the joysome
frolic goes on unabated.
All except the stipulated dances will
be waltzes and two-steps. No tan-
going will be allowed at these times,
but the rule will not work vice versa,
as other dances will be permitted dur-
ing the numbers reserved for tangoes.
The ban on the so-called "clutch-
hold" has not been removed. Danc-
ing of this kind will be frowned upon
even more vigorously than in the past,
and radical efforts will be exerted to
eliminate any dances listed as objec-
tionable in any way.
According to the men in charge of
the Union dances, the change of atti-
tude in regard to the tango came about
as a natural result of altered student
sentiment. , It is pointed out that
where this dance was only an inno'a-
tion when it was barred, and conse-
quently not practiced by the majority
of those attending the weekly affairs,
it has come to be a more or less estab-
lished institution, and as such deserv-
es recognition.
The dance committeemen assert that
the tango was never disbarred for any
moral scruples, but rather on account
of the inconvenience it entailed to the
other dancers on the floor. With the
present compromise, it is expected
that both the tangoers and those not
so affected will have the largest
amount of enjoyment.
"Confiagratins and Means of Their
Prevention" will bethe subject of a
talk by Mr. J. K. Freitag, '90E, this
afternoon at 4:00 o'clock in room 348
of the engineering building. Mr. Frei-
tag, who was formerly assistant engi-
neer at the World's exposition in Chi-
cago, is now with the A. B. Robbins
Iron company of Boston. He is also
the author of the books, "Fireproof-

Protection". The lecture, which will
be illustrated, will be open to the pub-
