Probation aud Parole of {Offenders
Principa9jSubject Discussed
Probation and parole of minor o-
fenders, and reform of the present
prison system were, the principal sub-
jects discussed before the Michigan
State Conference of Charities and Cor-
rection in the closing sessions yester-
day. Judge Henry S. Hulburt, of the
juvenile court in Detroit, Judge Jef-
fries and Tracy McGregor, also of De-
troit, and Dr. J. T. Gilmour, warden of
Central prison, Toronto, were the prin-
cipal speakers.
esides correctional work, housing
and recreation and family and and
neighbcrhood problems were treated in
several interesting papers, and the
general "round table" discussions
which followed were among the liveli-
est of the conference.
The conference has been made an
annual affair, and has been permanent-
ly organized, but the place of meeting
for next year's convention has not yet
been decided upon. An executive com-
mittee was appointed, consisting of
Charles Garfield, of Grand Rapids, I
L. Udell, Letrcit, the Rev. W. H. Poole
Jackson. Ew. Mershon, Saginaw, Mrs
W. H. Wait, Ann Arbor, Mrs. D.-F. Dig-
gins, Cadillac,. and Adelaide Buffing-
ton, Lansing.
Entrants for Canoe Race Still Minus

Swimming Races; All Are
Eligible for Races.
A. 'ut 25 entries for the different
events for the Michigan Union Boat
club regatta to be held Saturday morn-1
ing were received yesterday, making
the total number almost 50. EntrantsI
for the canoe races are still almost ai
minus quantity, and as yet no one has;
signified intentions of participating in4
the mixed double race, where a woman
mans the front paddle and a male stu-
dent the rear one.
A number of volunteer workers will
meet with the officials of the club this
morning at 9:00 o'clock, and proceedc
up the river to mark out the racings
courses and place the buoys in the
proper positions. The men will also1
construct a temporary portage around ,
the dam at the old pulp mill.
An attempt will be made by the au-I
thorities in charge of the events to get
numerals for the winners of the 'swim-<
ming races. Dr. G. A. May has been
secured to act as judge for the diving,

All athhftic interest in the country
today centers at Cambridge where the
classic in track event,the Intercollegi-
ates will be in progress, and it- is safe
to say that Michigan will play a more
or less prominent part in them. Crit-
ics generally agree that injuries hav
ruined whatever chances Michigan had
for copping first or second honors but
there is some dissension as to whether
they will end up in third or fourth
place, it being generally conceded that
they will defeat all the eastern teams
except Penn and Cornell.
Michigan should cop twenty points,
which ought to land it in the third
hole. In the hundred yard dash Bond
should place although Reller of Cor-
nell and Patterson of Penn beat him
to the tape on performance. Bond also
should place in the 220 with Mercer
copping first. Craig looks good for
first in the low hurdles if his leg holds
out and Haff ought, not to have any
real competition in the quarter. Kohl-
er basing predictions on dope, looks
like a point winner in the weight
events although it is entirely improb-
able that he will take first in eithe.
Sargent can place in the high jump if
he is in form although the little feriow
is not doing up to his past form. But
aside from these men it is improbable
that the Wolverines will place.
The races between Jones of Cornell
and Tabor ofBrown in the half and the
mile should be the thrillers of the
meet and critics are divided as to the
outcomes. The pole vault should bea
good with Wagoner of Yale probable
winner. California, a rank outsider in1

al that Michigan will have and the
Golden state athletes may make
things decidedly uncomfortable
for the Wolverines. Reports fromi

New Seienco Building Located; Dean
Reed's Leae of Absence Extend-
ed For a Year.
The university budget for the year
1913-'14, amounting to $1,442, 796.56,
was adopted by the board of regents
last night. This is an increase of
more than $200,000 over that granted
by the board at the same time last
year but is considerably smaller than
the total amount for the whole year
The south wing of University hall
was voted to be restored as it was be-
fore the fire. It is planned to have it
in condition for the scientific depart-
ments for the opening of the next col-
lege year. An appropriation of $1,500
was also voted for the installation of
a campus fire department.
The new science building was locat-
ed by the beard on the site of the old
homeopathic building between the law
end chemistry buildings. A committee
was authorized to report on the care
of the homeopathic work until the
^ompletion of the new structure.
Prof. E. C. Whitney was appointed
to succeed hin-self as a member of the
board in control of athletics. Prof. R.
W. Aigler was appointed as the repre-
Wentative from the law department on

The fees of patients at the university

cents a day. Out of the increase there
is to be set aside a fund not to exceed
$5,000 in the university hospital and

from which may be paid the charges of
unfortunate patients.
Tryouts for the offices of Varsity
cheerleaders will make their first pub-
lic appearance at Ferry field today at
the M. A. C. game. The men have been
receiving instruction for the past two
days from L. M. Otis, '13M, present
cheerleader and some of them show
real ability in the art of leading cheers
it is said.
The men will all be dressed uniform-
ly, wearing white trousers and plain
white shirts and each will be given a
chance to display his prowess before
the crowds assembled in the stands,
All the candidates will appear again
at the game tomorrow and the tryouts
will be continued. The election will
be held some time next week, and the
four men chosen will be the Varsity
yellleaders next year.
The names of the candidates who
are all juniors in the order in which
they will lead the cheers is as follows:
