Michigan Expects Stiff Opposition
From invading Southern
Once more Coach Branch Rickey
will send a new combination of Varsi-
ty diamond artists into the field when
Michigan meets Georgia this after-
noon on Ferry field. This time the
coach has shifted the infield and as a
result every position of the inner de-
fense will be taken to care of by a
different man than appeared in the
Wesiiern Reserve game on Saturday.
"Johnnie" Lavans is still unable to
play, and Coach Rickey has called Ba-
ker from third to look after the short-
field. Hughitt will be sent to .third
McQueen, who played at second base
against Western Reserve, will be shift-
ed to first, owing to the fact that How-
ard is out of, the game temporarily
because of an injured knee,while Dun-
canson will be sent back to his old
post at second base.
Michigan concluded her practice for
the Georgia game yesterday after-
noon when the coach put his charges
through a little real competition. The
Wolverines are expecting the same
kind of opposition which Georgia put
up in the last game at Athens when
the southerners held the invaders to
a 2 to 2, 11 inning tie and are on
edge for the contest.
Georgia will use the following line-
up: Jimm lf, McWhorter cf, Hutchins
c, Henderson 1b, Covington 3b, Erwin
rf, Harrison 2b, Corley p, Morris p,
Hitchcock p, Clements ss.
Michigan's lineup will probably be:

an unknown negro, who was peeping | at its meeting last night, a third tug-

his escape last night while bullets

Just after Mr. Benjamin had dozed

TO GIVE CONCERT. IN DETROIT.
Combined Musical Clubs Will Hold
Entertainment May 2.
Detroit will be given an opportunity
to hear the combined Michigan mu-
sical clubs in a concert ouMay 2. Fear
that the proposed concert in Toledo
would not prove a financial success,
resulted in a decision not to give the
concert in that city.
The personneltofthe clubs has been
almost doubled since the Pacific trip,
and about 42 men will be taken to De-
troit. The clubs Vill probably ren-
der the same program as they did on
the western trip, featuring songs from
"Contrarie Mary." The concert will be
given in the Knights of Columbus
Another "home entertainment is be-
ing planned by the glee and mando-
lin clubs. The date has not been set
but will probably be about the time
of the spring interscholastic meet.

DECIDE TO WITHDRAW ENTRY
IN VARSITY MILE CONTEST.
Kohler and Sargeant Will Be Taken
to Compete in Field
From the outcome of the trials in
the Varsity two mile relay, and the
freshman mile race yesterday after-
noon, the athletic authorities have
definitely decided to send teams to
compete in these events at the Penn-
sylvania field day. It was further de-
cided that the entry in the Varsity mile
would be withdrawn, because of the
poor showing of the runners in recent
trials, and the stiff competition to be
met with in this distance.
All official times taken from the two
mile trials were kept under the hats
of the timers, but as unofficial reports
give Haff a mark under two minutes,
and four others were hot on his heels,
the average struck must have been
close to the desired two minutes. Haff,

A WRITTEN PLEDGE WILL BE
REQUIRED AT END OF EXAM.
Committees From Each Class Will
Modify Plan For Use of
The first draft of a departmental
plan for taking examinations under
the honor system was adopted by a
board of class presidents, which met
at the Union yesterday afternoon. The
plan will be modified to suit the par-
ticular needs of each department, and-
will then be submitted to the several
classes for ratification.
The scheme is the result of a thor-
ough analysis of such systems used
in representative colleges throughout
the country, and combines the best
points found in all of them. The com-
mittee, under Ralph M. Snyder, '13L,
chairman, has made a careful study. of
the methods used in the Universities
of Texas, Cornell, Princeton, the Car-
negie Institute, and the New York
State high school system, and has
evolved a composite plan which it
considered would adequately meet
According to the program adopted
by the board, the presidents of Ell the
classes in each department will amend
the outline as they think necessary,
using the present plan as a basis, and
then report, back to the board. Each
president will then appoint a com-
mittee of members of his own class,
and all'th committees in each depart-
ment will meet and together work out
in detail a final plan which will be
turned over to each class with the
recommendation that it be adopted.
If- a majority of classes in a de-
partment accept the plan, it is to be
considered that the honor system has
been officially adopted by that depart-
