A .wave of uneasiness prevails
among students and saloon keepers
since the order issued by the license
committee of the city common council
Saturday evening forbidding the sale
of intoxicants to students. A falling
off in patronage was noticeable in sa-
loons yesterday due to the fear of stu-
dents becoming mixed up in arrests
that may follow at any moment at the
instigation of backers of the prohibi-
tion of student drinking. Students are
greatly concerned because it is inti-
mated that the state law will also be
enforced energetically in Ypsilanti,De-
troit and elsewhere throughout the
state. The saloon men met to discuss
the situation Sunday, and it is said that
they have determined to fight if any
arrests are made.
According to a report read before
the city council last night by Chairman
Sink, of the license committee, all of
the 29 saloonkeepers had received li-
"In taking out these licenses the sa-
loonkeepers have accepted our order
to observe the student liquor law as
well as other saloon regulations," said
Chairman. Sink. "If they violate the
law, they will be prosecuted."
Alderman Lutz, a member of the li-
cense committee said: "I have been
in the employ of the university for a
number of years, and find it difficult to
distinguish between students and oth-
ers. I realize the difficulty that con-
fronts many of the saloonkeepers. But
they must obey the law. It is up to
the university to do something to help
It seems to be a consensus of opin-
ion among the members of the license
committee that they will be upheld by
the city common council if a fight
should develop, and they unite with the
saloonmen in welcoming a test case
to determine the constitutionality of
the state law.
"I am in favor of the enforcement of
the law, and since this affair has been
stirred up, I believe that something
will come of it," said Alderman Rash,
a member of the license committee.
"Arrests of saloonists in whose places
students are caught drinking may fol-
low. These arrests may come at the
instigation of certain organizations in
this city. In fact the students violat-
ing the state law either here or in De-
troit or elsewhere may be the cause
of prosecution of saloonmen."
Secretary Shirley Smith, of the uni-
versity, admitted that the university
had not begun any definite action to-
wards co-operation with the city au-
thorities. He said:
"I know of no new discipline to be
inaugurated and cannot say anything
about such, as it is entirely without
the province of my office. I will say,
however, that it appears to me that an
unusually large number of students go
over to Detroit. This fact impressed
me on several occasions."

Amid the bustle of preparation for
the Cornell dual meet at Ithaca, on
Saturday, news has been received at
the athletic office that California's
track team will not stop to condition
at Ann Arbor en route for the Eastern
inter-collegiate. The cause of Cali-
fornia's negative decision is supposed
to be a financial one, as the stop over
at Ann Arbor would mean considerable
extra expenditure.
Added to this sudden shattering of
ais dream of the California meet,
Trainer Farrell is worrying over the
set-back his chances for whipping his
squad into shape for Saturday's tilt
with Cornell are receiving at the hands
of the weather dispenser. lie has no
line on the out-door abilities of many
of the athletes, and will probably find
it imperative to run off trials, either
-oday or tomorrow, and then slow.up
the pace on Thursday, to rest the men,
chosen for the Cornell competition.
When the relative chances of the
two teams are discussed, the Wolver-
ines appear to be the favorites, part-
ly on a comparison of indoor records,
and partly on performances of last
year. Craig is picked to win both the
high and low hudles, but when it is re-
membered that having little opportun-
ty for outdoor work, one of these racs
would deplete his strength, it seems
safest to concede him only first. Sew-
ard, Bond, and Lapsley should garner
six points for Michigan in the sprints.
Haff is expected to meet with no troub-
le in again vanquishing Bowser; the
colored quarter-miler of Cornell, and
Jansen should fill the shoes of Carver
by winning the half-mile. Jones of the
opposition will of course win whatever
distance event he chooses to enter,
which will probably be the mile. flaim-
baugh is good for five points in case
a two mile race is on the program,
and Kohler is booked to cut a wide
swath in the weights. Sargent is the
only other Michigan man who seems
sure of his place.
Trainer Farrell is paying much time
to the development of a broad jumper,
as in the past few years the university
Waring is jumping close to 22 feet, and

three days rain but it is expected that
it will be dry enough by this afternoon
to allow a snappy game.
The lineup that will face the Colo-
.els is still a matter of doubt. Ken-
tucky did not put up a hard battle
against Michigan on the southern trip
but dope has it that their team has
been strengthened and they hope to
make the score closer or if possible
even up the count. If Sisler does not
pitch he will probably play at first as
Howard is still lame. Sheehy and Ba-
ker have almost recovered from their
bump and will probably be in the
game so that Michigan should present
i strong front, although. Rickey may
take the occasion to try out a few new
ones. According to dope, Quaintance
ought to do the hurling, saving Ssler
for Thursday when Pittsburg, an un-
known but reputed strong club is here.
It may be possible that the day be too
chilly for Quaintance who is a warm
weather hurler and Baribeau may be
sent against the gentlemen from the
south. The matter is a question of
doubt and any one of the three ought
to be in shape after a long rest to grab
the game.
The game today will be called at
4:05 with Michigan's lineup probably
the same as the Georgia game.

The transformation of the old "Cal
Hole" to a Creek amphitheatre be-
came a possibility when the sanita-
tion committee of the Ann Arbor Civic
association met last night. A special
committee consisting of Profs. E. D.
Rich and W. C. Hoag was appointed
by Dean V. C. Vaughan of the medical
department, chairman of the commit-
tee, to report on the condition of the
hole with the view of beautifying it
and turning it into an outdoor gather-
ing place similar to the amphitheater
of the University of California,
The sanitation committee is also
busy with an ordinance to be present-
ed to the council for the provision of

Constitution For New Organization
Has Been Drawn Up and Will
Be Presented at athering
Wednesday Night,
Purpose of Club is to Promote Aquat-
cs, Start Nucleus For Crew and
Prevent Accidents.
Everyone interested in tha formation
and establishment of the Michigan Un-
ion Boat club is urged to attend the
general mass meeting to be held at the
Union club house on Wednesday ev-
eaing at 7:00 p. m., when the club
will be formally organized.
The constitution' drawn up by the
.aembers of the committee will be sub-
a itted for approval, a list of nomina-
-ions for the offices, will be submitted
Iind additional nominations may be
*uade by those present. Election of
elficers will follow and the men select-
d will be installed immediately, so
hat the club will be placed on a bus-
ness basis.
Pres. E. G. Kemp, of the'Union, will
reside at the meeting and Chairman
-. B. Duffield, '14E, will give a brief
aistory of the work already accom-
,Aished by the committee. M. R. Hunt-
,r, '13E, will tell of the possibilities of
he club, H. S. lHurlbert, '14M, will
,utline the prospects of the organiza-
the club, and G. B. Patterson, '14E, will
4pcak on the inducements offered to
Tie purposes of the club, as outlined
n- the constitution are to promote
:uuatic sports, start the nucleus for'
t university crew, to exert every ener-
,y possible towjird prevention of acci-
.ents and the saving of life on the riv-

a meat inspector. "I have seen fowls
affected with tuberculosis being sold
in stores in this city," declared Dr. A.
S. Warthin, at the meeting last night.
-I have been asked to examine a num-
ber of such diseased specimens in my
laboratory. People ought to know
::hat fowls that have their livers re-
inoved are rather suspicious. In
viev of our protection to the meat
men, they are quite in sympathy with
the movement."
In connection with the city water
question, which is being handled by
the committee, Dean V. C. Vaughan
had this to say. "The water supply
,f Ann Arbor has always been un-
justly abused. We have watched the
purity of the water the last 20 years,
and in all that time there have been
only five cases of typhoid fever trace-
able to infected water. Nearly all of
,hem occurred in 1894. The water is
inalyzed at least once a day. - doubt
whether there is any other city of this
size in the country that has as pure a
supply as we have."
Will Aemnpt to Organize American
Braiicli of Medical Museum
Dr. A. S. Warthin of the medical de-
partment, president of the Internation-
tl Association of Medical museums,
will preside at the meetings of this
hody in Washington, D. C., May 5. He
will also deliver two lectures.
It is the purpose of Dr. Warthin to
Inaugurate a movement that will lead
to the organization of an American
>ranch of the society and also an
imerican Museum of Medical Re-
search. His lectures will be "The Age
and Incidence of Carcinoma" and "A
Study of Heredity in Cancer as Shown
by the Records of the Pathological
Laboratory of the University of Mich-
igan from 1895 to 1913."
After standing for almost a year as
an ornament, and a memorial to
thirsty mortals, the mid-campus water-
ing station, erected by the class of
1911, will bubble today from all four
spouts. Although the pipes of the
mnausoleum' hae become rusty, and
cobwebs numeous, Supt. James H.
Marks states conclusively that at last
the sparkling water of the Huron will
quench the campus thirst.
The monument was erected late last
summer and connections were not
made in the fall on account of the im-
practicability of using the drink-fount
during the winter.

In order to call the attention of the
residents of Michigan to the big ex-
hibition to be given by the engineer-

Invitations will be sent to alumni

have been distributed, th'e number of
