"PEANUT POLITICS" TO BE ABSENT
The remainder of the class elections
will be held this morning. This will
include all freshmen classes and the
junior and soph lits, whose. elections
were postponed from last Saturday on
account of the trip to Columbus. Keen
competition is expected among the
soph lits as all of the principal offices
are contested by many. The junior lit
election will be less interesting be-
cause for some of the offices only one
person was nominated. Freshmen
elections have special campus promi-
nence this year because most all of
the first year classes have followed
the suggestion of their upperclassmen
and have begun their political careers
by declaring in favor of clean politics.
All of the classes are looking for a
heavy vote and hope that the abolish-
ment of 'peanut politics' will have an
influence in this direction. The elec-
tions will be held as follows:
Junior lits, 9:00 to 12:00, west phys-
ics lecture room; soph lits, 9:15 to
12:15, Tappan hall; 'fresh lits, 9:15 to
12:15, Tappan hall, second floor; fresh
engineers, 9:15 to 12:30, room 311;
fresh laws, 9:00 to 12:00, room B;
fresh medics, 12:00 to 12:30, second
floor, east hall; fresh homeops, 11:45
to 12:00, medical building, lecture

SENIOR GIRLS INAUGURATE
SERIES OF UNION DINNERS.
Dean Myra B. Jordan's annual re-
ception to the senior girls was held
yesterday afternoon in Barbour gym.
As has been the custom in the past
the party partook both of business and
pleasure. Committees Were appointed
to select the play to be given by the
senior girls this yea'r, and to arrange
a program for a series of parties and
socj' eents to bring the members of
class more closely together. An
4nnovation was introduced when it
was decided to hold the dinners at the
Michigan Union during the rest of the
'college year. The first of these will
take place two weeks from tonight.
TAU BETA PI INITIATES
, ELEVEN AT BANQUET.
More than 50 were present at the fif-
teenth initiation banquet of Tau Beta
Pi engineering honorary fraternity,
held last night at the Michigan Union.
Toasts were responded to by Profes-
sors H. C. Anderson, H. J. Goulging,
and V. H. Lane, and J. L. Crane, '13,
J. A. Wde,''13, and Manley Osgood,
Eleven men were initiated last night:
Prof. W. T. Fishleigh of th faculty, and
the following seniors: J. W. Follin, W.
A. Grove, E. M. Howell, T. F. McGiv-
ney, R. McMath, N. K. Sheppard, C.
M. Smith, S. R. Truesdell, J. 'A. Wade,
and C. E. Wolfstyn.
Kalamazoo Students Form Club.
Eighteen natives of Kalamazoo met
at the Union last night for the purpose
of forming an organization of Celery
city men. Lester F. Rosenbaum was
appointed temporary chairman and
named a committee of three, R. C.
Loughead chairman, andtER.eM. Mum-
ford, and D. K. Strickland to prepare1
In accordance with a provision in
the regulations of the blanket tax sys-
tem, by which any student may be ex-
cused from paying the $5.00 athletic
fee on petition to the regents, 24 re-
quests of this nature were considered
by the board of regents at its meeting
yesterday. No definite action was tak-
en on the matter, and the petitions
were referred to the board in control
of athletics for personal investigation.
Most of the petitions asking for a
refund of the athletic fee averred that-
the petitioners were incapacitated for
competition in athletics, or were un-
able for various reasons to enjoy the
privileges of Ferry and Palmer fields.
Inasmuch as the blanket tax resolu-
tion as originally passed by the regents
is particularly liberal in regard to
stundents unable to pay the required
fee, it is probable that most of the pe-
titions will be acted upon favorably
at the next meeting of the regents.
The provision in the blanket tax res-
olution upon which the petitions re-
ceived yesterday were based, reads as
follows: "Provided, that if any student
feels unable to pay such amount, he
or she may have an opportunity, with-
out publicity, to be excused therefrom
by petition to the board of regents."
TICKETS FOR FOURTH UNION
DANCE ARE ALL DISPOSED OF
The fourth of the series of the regu-
lar Saturday night dances at th Mich-
igan Union will be held this evening.
All tickets were sold by 10:00 o'clock
yesterday morning. The chaperones
for the party this evening are: Dean
and Mrs. N. F. Hoff and Mrs. J. A. C.
ARE FOUND I3LPRACTICABLE
The inter-society luncheons, which
were recently planned to be given
jointly by the various campus honor-
ary societies, have, for the present,
been called off. Arrangements were
made by representatives from each so-
ciety to hold these luncheons at regu-
lar intervals at the Michigan Union.
But it now seems that the Union dates
are so crowded that the members
would find conflicts and would have
too much on their hands. If, however,
at any future time a sufficient number
of organizations wish the luncheons,
they will be provided by the Union
SPECIAL STUNTS FEATURE
SOCIAL AT NEWBERRY HALL
A special program has been arrang-
ed for the joint gathering of the Y.M.C.
A. and the Y. W. C. A. in Newberry
hall tonight at 8:00 o'clock. Several
of the Japanese students under the
auspices of the Cosmopolitan club, will
perform some of the 'stunts' that were
offered in vaudeville this spring dur-
ing the jubilee. Besides this there will
be other features of equal merit sup-
plemented by the usual 'good eats.'
Dean Cooley Exammies Property.
Dean M. E. Cooley has been asked by
the state railroad commission to look
over the valuation list of the physical
property of the Grand Rapids railway.
The dean will give expert opinion upon
the correctness of the various esti-
mates contained in the repot.

Unusuatlly heavy voting characteriz-
ed the straw ballot contest yesterday,
more than 300 votes being cast. Wilson
still retains his lead, but Roosevelt
again made a cut in its size, so that the
.former college president is but 12 votes
ahead of the Bull Moose leader. The
positions of the rest of the candidates
are unchanged, but inclinations point
to the advance of Debs to third place

Votes from three new states and four
foreign countries were cast yesterday,
making a total of 36 states that are
represented, as well as six nations.
The departmental vote remains about
the same, the lits are first in number
of votes cast, the engineers second,
while the laws are third, the medics
fourth, and the faculty fifth. The dents,
graduates, pharmics and homeops fol-

A feature of the vote yesterday was
the appearance of a solitary ballot for
Bryan. Several ballots were thrown
out yesterday because some students
insist on voting more than once. More
votes were rendered worthless, due to
the fact that no state was given. The
name of the voter, his home state and
department must be signed in the
proper place on the ballot, or the votes

The resignation of James A. Crai
professor of Semitics and Hellenistic

received by the board of regents at its
meeting yesterday afternoon. The res-

sion of regret on the part of the re-
Although no definite reason is given
for Prof. Craig's action, it is under-
stood that fear of a nervous break-
down caused im to sever his relations
with the institution which he has
ssrved so faithfully for nearly 20 years.
The resignation did not come altogeth-
er as a surprise,following Prof. Craig's
recent ill health, but it was generally
expected that he might continue his
duties after an extended leave of ab-
About two weeks ago Prof. Craig
suddenly left Ann Arbor, giving rise to
a rumor that he had mysteriously dis-
appeared. The story proved unfound-
ed, he having gone to Toronto where
his two daughters are in school. At
the time it was announced by Presi-
dent H. B. Hutchins that ,Prof. Craig
had asked for a semester's leave of ab-
sence which had been granted.
During his long service in the uni-
versity, Prof. Craig was one of the
most popular teachers on the campus.
He was recognized as an especially
capable instructor in the Semitic lan-
guages and literatures, and in Hellen-
istic Greek, and he had written sever-
al scholarly treatises in his line of
