UNION TO MAKE
NO ALLIANCE IN
No action was taken by the board
of regents in regard to the conference
question at its meeting last night.
The resolutions by the board in con-
trol of athletics petitioning for the re-
turn to the western fold did not come
up at this meeting owing to the ruling
of the board that all business must be
in the hands of the president ten days
before the meeting of the board. The
athletic board did not decide to put
the' question up to the regents until
last Saturday and it therefore, was
barred from action at.this meeting.
Th comm'unication from the uni-
versity senate in regard to the con-
ference was not acted upon and was
put over to the May meeting so that
both resolutions could be discussed at
the same time.
The regents were addressed by the
delegation of Chicago alumni and lis-
tened attentively to their pleas for
the return of Michigan to the confer-
ence. Their address caused consid-
erable discussion on the part of the
board but did not precipitate action
on the question.
With the election of 68 candidates,
Sigma Xi, the honorary scientific so-
ciety, exceeded last year's elections by
17. The elections, which were an-
nounced yesterday, were based on
scholarship, and the new members
were selected from faculty, graduates
and senior students.

Phi Beta Kappa yesterday afternoon
elected 24 members of the 1913 liter-
ary class to membership. This con-
stitutes about five per cent of the sen-
ior lit class and is the third largest
number ever taken in by the local

year, out of the 22 chosen, only 10
men were picked. Sororities are rep-

women belonged to sororities while
the same number of fraternity nem-
bers were chosen as this year.

Eighty Men are rresent and Respond
to Speeches With reat
"No alliance with the Y. M. C. A.
will ever be made by the Michigan Un-
ion in its campaign for funds for a
new building," said Edward G. Kemp,
president of. that organiation, in a
speech given at the monthly member-
ship dinner at the Union last evening.
"Our fight for a new building is go-
ing to be' made alone," continued
Kemp. "The plan for a joint solicita-
tion in conjunction with the Y. M. C. A.
was decided to be inadvisable after
continued consideration, and as a re-
sult we will go our way unaccompa-
nied and unassisted."
The announcement that the Union
would not ally with the Y. Y. C. A.
was greeted with applause on the part
of the 80 men present at the dinner.
"Our problem at present," declared
Kemp, "is to find a young alumnus
with enough business ability and ex-
.perience to undertake the solicitation
of money. Such a man is not easy to
secure. He must have unusual ac-
complishments in order to approach
alumni for large subscriptions, and
men of this character are for the most
part engaged in business for them-
The principal speaker of the even-
ing was Judge Alfred J. Murphy, of
Detroit, who took as his topic: "The
Educated Man and the Public."

For years the band has had a pre-
carious existence. It has turned out
for football games, concerts and other
campus events since its organization
without knowing who would pay for
the music it had used. It has never
been on a permanent footing.
Moreover, this year members of the
student council committee and the
committee from the athletic board of
control planned a system whereby the
band will be permanently established.
The athletic association has offered to
appropriate yearly $800 for the main-
tenance of the band," provided that
the board of regents gives $1500.
Members of the organization,
through Max Stanley, their leader,
have taken a definite stand and refuse
to do any more playing until their
future is provided for.

Senior Engineers .Discuss Campus
Customs; Plan Formal Dance.
Regulations were adopted by the
senior engineers at a class meeting
yesterday . afternoon tending to
strengthen several campus traditions
that of late have been violated, name-
ly the use of the senior benches by
other than m6mbers of the senior
class, and the carrying of canes by
others than seniors. It was decided
that no undergraduate, except seniors,
should carry canes.
The cliss voted to hold a formal
dance on Tucsday, May 6th, at Gran-
per's. It was voted that flowers would
not be worn at the dance. No senior
banquet will be given by the class
owing to the recent faculty ruling rel-

consisted of Captain Haft, Haimbaugh,
Jansen, Brown and Lamey of the Var-
sity two mile team; Smith, Lyttle, Cat-
lett, Lifer and Core of the freshman
mile team, and Sargeant and Kohler,
both of whom will participate in their
special events, besides Trainer Far-
rell and Student Manager Denison.
Michigan's chances in wining first
place in the two mile event are ex-
ceedingly bright. Michigan has drawn
an advantageous position close to the
pole,, and with four good runners to
compete there seems no reason why'
the Maize and Blue should not be tri-
umphant in its field.
"Michigan will have about the fin-
est two mile team that ever stepped
:nto Franklin field," was the predic-
ion delivered by Trainer Farrell after
the trials had been run. Farrell was
reluctant about the time, but unoffici-
ally it is stated that Captain Haff's
:ime in the event was well under 2
quinutes, and as the other three run-
ners come in close behind him, the
average time is exceedingly good.
Sargent and Kohler also have excel-
lent chances of winning places in the
