nade of Seniors; March to Uni-
versity Hall to Start at 3:15
and Exercises at 3:30.
Different lDepartmnents Will Line Up
According to Order of Establish-
ment in University.
All plans have been completed for
the promenade of the seniors in their
annual "swing out" which is to be
heldThursday afternoon, May 8. The
flowing black robes and mortarboards
will be worn then by the near gradu-
ates for the first time, and the walks
of the campus will be traversed by a
long line, clad in sombre black, in the
traditional parade.
Seniors of all departments will meet
\at their respective places at 3:05
o'clock on Thursday afternoon, and
the procession into University Hall
will start promptly at 3:15 o'clock.
The sftiors of the literary depart-
ment will meet on the walk between
the Museum and University hall, and
those of the engineering department
on the diagonal walk between Univer-
sity hall and Dr. Angell's residence.
The medics will gather on the walk
between University hall and the li-
brary; the laws between University
hall and the flag pole; the pharmics
on the -diagonal walk in front of the
cannon; the homeops at the north en-
trance of the economics building; and
the dents on the walk at the south en-
trance of the economics building.
From these positions, the different
departments will proceed to Universi-
ty hall, by the middle door, where the
exercises will begin promptly at 3:30
o'clock. Dr. James B.Angell and Pres.
Harry B. Hutchins will deliver ad-
dresses to the seniors.
Immediately following the program
in University Hall, the seniors of the
different departments, in the order of
their establishment in the university,
lits, engineers, medics, laws, pharm-
ics, homeops, and dents, will march
around the campus. The procession
Will be led by Selden Dickinson, lit
president, and Clem Quinn, chairman
of the lit cap and gown committee.
Leaving University hall by the
main entrance, the line of march will
be as follows: down the main walk to
State street, south on State to Memo-
rial hall, east on South University to
the Engineering arch, through the
arch to the flag pole, on walk run-
ning northeast to gymnasium, then
west on North University to the lawa
building. This line of march will de-
scribe an "M." At the Law buildingI
the usual pictures of the different
classes will be taken.f
In the evening, an all senior sing
will be held on the step of MemorialI
hall. The glee and mandolin clubs
will assist in in the musical program
Leaflets, with details and directionst
for the promenade, will be distributed
on Thursday to avoid any confusion inI
the march. It is essential that all
seniors be prompt in getting into line.
The caps and gowns have arrivedf
and may be obtained by paying ther
customary fee at the business placesl
where they were ordered.T
In case it rains on Thursday,noticesI
of postponement of the exercises willc
be given.
Prof. W. W. Florer of the German
department will speak to the inter-
fraternity conference this evening in<
the library of the new engineering
building and will urge them to coop-Z

erate with the locals committee ap-
pointed by Pres. H. B. Hutchins to
make the meeting of the Michiganf
State Teachers' association a success.
It is hoped that the fraternities and
other organizations having houses of

Manuscripts for 1914 Opera
Possess Qualities of
Unusual Merit.

Said to

Fifteen books, with merry-making
laid in every conceivable spot on the
globe, have been entered in the com-
ptition for the writing of the 1914
Michigan Union opera. The time limit
for entries closed Sunday evening.
Many of the books submitted have
been written by men who have tried
out before, .and these are said to be
of unusual merit. Several of the pro-
ductions composed by less experienc-
ed authors are also considered to be
in the running.
No definite time has been set for the
judging of the books, but Philip K.
Fletcher, '13E, general chairman of
"Contrarie Mary," stated last night
that awards would be made some time
this month. The list of judges for the
competition will be made public later.
The number of books entered in this
year's contest exceeds that of last
year by three.

g' Advance Sale; Many
Seats Remain.
With a complete rehearsal of "Koep,
nickerstrasse 120" at the Whitney the-
ater Sunday afternoon, the Deutscher-
Verein production proved itself of the
standard of fcrnmer plays. The farce
will be rehearsed at the theater to-
night with a dress rehearsal Thursday
evening.c. .More than 400 seats have
been sold and the remaining are on
pale every afternoon between 4:00 and
5:00 o'clock at Walr's bookstore.
This is the first German play ever
given under entire student coaching
and management. It differs from oth-
er plays in a lack of star roles, 10 of
the characters having parts of nearly
equal importance. The play has an es-
pecially' large numher of clever far-
cical situations.
Since the play was first launched
five changes have been made in char-
acters, some of the principal players
having been compelled to give up their
parts. Despite this fact all lines have'
been perfectly learned and the pro-
duction is entirely ready for the

1Presients of First Year Men in Pro-

Step Will Unite Present
Isolated Colleges
Say Joint Meetings Would Broaden
Vrewpoint as WeP t''r
Men in the professional departments
on the campus welcome with enhuri-
asm the project to hold all-frehmen
assemblies, and claim it is the first
step toward uniting those hitherto iso-
lated departments in a broader and
true university spirit. As far as could
be learned, the five professional de-
partments were unanimously in favor
of an opportunity to mix with students
not so highly specialized in their work.
"We all get acquainted very soon
in the law department," said Thomas
F. Murphy, president of the fresh laws
last night, "so we don't need to get to-
gether in departmental assemblies, but
it \vould-certainly be a goed plan for
the first year men in all depar'tments
to meet in such a way, that a real live
class interest and feeling might be
Edgar Beards!ce, president of the
fresh medics, Robet Brown, presi-
dent of the fresh dents, and E. S.
Thornton, of the fresh homeops, avow-
ed that they have felt almost entire
strangers, detached as they are from
the rest of the campus.
"I was distinctly surprised," said
Beardslee, "when I came here from an
eastern school to'find such a lack of
solidity and of follow-feeling. We are
like beings living in a diffe ent world.
Although the medic is now practically
a graduate department, and may there-
fore not be so vitally interested as the
others, I am sure an all-fresh aa.n;-
bly would be a splendid thing as fillug
a long felt want in the university."
Horace M.H. Corey,president of the
fresh engineers, who have found the
weekly assembly such a pronounced
success, declares that an assembly af-
fords the best possible way of con-
ducting class business, and solves the
problem of how to get 'enough mem-
bers of the class together to transact
W. L. Seibert, head of the fresh
pharnics, declared a departmental as-
sembly unnecessary in their case, but
said a joint meeting With the first year
men from the other departments
would be an excellent plan. He agreed
with the medics, homeops, and dents
in saying that the professional stu-
dents seem to have little in common
with others, and that an all-fresh as-
sembly would provide an opportunity
for them to broaden their viewpoint as
well as acquaintance.

'llns for the lcleaning up of the Hu-

meeting of Pros. Allmendinger, of the
Civic Association, Manager Hempel,
of the Edison company, and a commit-
tee appointed by Pres. Hutchins, of the
university. The meeting will probably
be held on Wednesday afternoon at
2:00 o'clock.
The committee from the university,
appointed by the president for the pur-
pose of aiding the local authorities in

The Michigan Union Boat club, pre-
vious to the organization of the other
forces had already taken steps to-
wards the protection of the canoeists.
The officers of the club made a sur-
vey of the river Saturday morning in
order to locate the places that needed
immediate attention. They had orig-
inally planned to fix these dangerous
places with the funds at their dispos-
al, but the concentration of forces for
the same purpose, has unexpectedly
offered the chance to see the work
done thoroughly, and without regard
for the expense.
G. B. Duffield, '14E, vice commodore
of the club offered Secretary Smith
e servier of the club in the work,
yester:l.y morning. About 25 engi-
neers had volunteered to do the
necessary work for the club in clean-
ing up the river, and it is expected
that these men will be asked by the
combined forces to lend their aid.
A representative of the Boat club
has been extended an invitation to be
present at the meeting on Wednesday,
and will explain the location of the
places that need attention. The com_-
mittee plans to begin the work imme-
diately after the meeting, and all ar-
rangements will be made within a few

Soph Engineers Shut Out Freshmen,
And Fresh Doctors Carve
Second Year Mem
In the two interclass baseball games
yesterday afternoon, the soph engi-
neers won from the freshmen of their
department by the easy count of 13
to 0, and the fresh medics won from
the second year doctors in a 23-3
walk away.
Metcalf, working in the box for the
soph engineers, had the first year ball
tossers at his mercy, striking out nine
of their batsmen in the seven periods.

Washington and Jefferson Aggregation
to Attempt Task of Handing
Rickey's Men First Defeat
on Home Grounds.
Baribeau or Quaintance to Do Slab
Duty; Choice For Left Field
Between Four Men.
If the regrets of J. Pluvius are re-
ceived in time today, a real ball game
may be scheduled on Ferry field. The
word may be used advissedly in two
senses, as referring both to the
weather and the ability of the oppon-
ents. Washington and Jefferson is
the aggregation which is due to per-
form this afternoon and Michigan
should have a litile fuss on her hands
while endeavoring to pilfer the vic-
tor's wreath.
The easterners are reputed to have
a fast team and their showing in the
east this year has been good. Base-
ball raiks high as a sport in this class
of institutions and the reputation of
W and J has always stood high. They
are particularly anxious to grab off
the long end of the score today and
probably their strongest lineup will
be on the field. At any event it is a
safe wager that they will put up as
good an exhibition as the best that has
graced the Ferry diamond this year.
The Wolverine linup is still a mat-
tek of doubt. Either Baribeau or
Quaintance will do the hurling with
odds favoring "Ack." Neither has
worked in some time and should be
in first class shape. Quaintance has
not pitched a full game on the home
grounds yet and the fans are anxious
to see him go the route, and as he is
reputed a warm weather worker, this
brand of Medicine Hat stuff should
suit him.
Sheehy has partially recovered from
his injury of Saturday and is able to
hobble around on crutches. His ankle
is badly sprained and it will be some
time, however, before the little fellow
will be able to appear in uniform. So
the choice for left garden really rests
between four men, Corey, Black, Stew-
art and Saier and it is a wild shot to
-attempt to pick who will start the
game. Otherwise the lineup will prob-
ably be the same.
The game today will start at 4:05.
Mrs. Ruth Butts Carson, '98, late of
Florence,: Italy, will speak in Sarah
Caswell Angell Hall this afternoon at
4:30 o'clock on "With Paint Brush and
Camera Thru'Italy,Sicily and Greece."
She will also deliver two lectures to-
morrow afternoon at 4:00 o'clock in
the same room on "Color in Dress"
and "Paintings of Italy in Color." The
lectures, which are under the auspices
of the Women's League, will be ac-
companied by stereopticon slides and
will be free.
