ilfany Tryouts Render Choice Difficult
For Manager in Selection
of Parts
With the 60 tryouts for the Varsity
band playing in true professional style
at their first rehearsal last night in
University hall, Manager S. A. Hoex-
ter is puzzled as to the proper men to
pick for the band of forty musicians
which will march onto Ferry field
Saturday afternoon. Were there the
means to support an orchestra of six-
ty, it would not be necessary to cut a
single man from the list, he says.
To give the student body an idea
of the brand of music it will hear Sat-
urday afternoon, a campus concert will
be given tomorrow night at the band
stand. Classical music will chiefly
compose the program, although some
of the most popular Michigan songs
will be rendered.

a Two Companies Make Arrangements

The two railroads passing through
e ball Ann Arbor have made extensive prep-
arely, arations toward providing special
ds on train accommodations for students who
lected desire to see Yost's men battle with
drop the Michigan Aggies at Lansing, Octo-
from ber 17.

asses 7:45 o'clock and will arrive in Lan-

ing made to secure special rates for
limited number of students who
ould prefer to journey to the field
battle with the players.
Owing to the enormous interest pro-
>ked by the loss of last year's game
the "Farmers" it is expected that
.e largest cheering section, which ev-
followed a Michigan team will be
i hand when the whistle blows.

Because of the stringency of money
and the inaccessibility of paying situ-
ations about the university and Ann
Arbor approximately 700 students will
be lost fo the university this fall.
The Michigan Union employment bu-
reau and the agency maintained by
the Y. M. C. A. have turned away over
half a hundred men who unless they
can obtain financial aid will be forced
to give up their hopes of a university
career. The direct cause is said to be
the European war which has tied up
all financial connections and reducing
in many cases the payroll of small
firms and managements.
Many of these men had come to Ann
Arbor having lost their positions and
who thought that they could find work
in a university town and at the same.
time attend classes.
Will Attempt Co-operation With Edi-
son Company for Improvements
On Huron River
Michigan Union boat club plans for
the year, although not yet definite, in-
clude co-operating with the Edison
electrical company in cleaning the
Huron river north of Tessmer's boat
house, exhibitions of resuscitation of
drawned persons, social activities, a
membership campaign and in the
spring, a regatta.
The Huron river north of Tessmer's
boat house, is to be cleared up, the
.bathing beach to be improved and bet-
ter bath-house accommodations to be
provided for, if the Edison company
gives sufficient help. The remains of
the dam near the old mill, where dan-
gerous under-currents have caused
most of the calamities in recent years
is to be dynamited. A sign with infor-
mation useful in case of accident was
posted on the bridge near the old mill
this summer through the boat club and
the management of the Wolverine.
More work of this kind is contemplat-
ed for this year.
Through the aid of the university
health bureau, under Dr. H. H. Cum-
mings, the boat club plans to give pub-
lic exhibitions of methods of recov-
ering drowned -persons. These will
be carried on at the regatta and possi-
bly by posting information at different
places about the campus.
Nothing defnite will be decided upon
in regard to the social activities, mem-
bership campaign, and regatta until a
committee meeting at the end of the

All Departments Except Law Show
Gains, and Homeops Equal
Former Record
All departments of the university
continue to report a steady increase in
enrollment. The law department up
to las't night had a registration of 470,,
which is 39 'fe'wer thfan at this time'
last year., Because this year's senior
class is the first class whose entrance
requirements included one year of lit-
erary work it is thought that the total
of the law department registration will
run from 75 to 100 behind the numbe
of 1913-1914. The nunTber of law stu-
dents who possess literary degrees,
however, is growing from year to year.
The enrollment in the literary de-
partment shows a regular increase ov-
er that of last year, but does not equal
the increase of last year. Last year
was the banner year of the literary de-
partment, but it is not exepected that
the registration this year will show
the gain made during 1913-1914 . The
graduate department also reports a
good increase in enrollment.
The homeop department reports a
registration of 70. Although it is five
fewer than last year, a few more stu-
dents are expected to enroll within the
next few days, and with the usual
three or four registrations in the sec-
ond semester, the total will probably,
exceed that of last year.
The medics with an enrollment of
300 equal the total of last year, and
together with the 25 who are expected
to sign up, will surpass previous rec-
ords. The dental department has made
a gain of several students over the
n cord of last year.
B Conferenee Meets in Ann Arbor
The twelfth annual state boys' con-
ference of the Michigan state Y. M. C.
A. will be held in Ann Arbor on No-
vember 27,28, and 29. There will be
2,000 delegates representing every
town of importance in the state and
the local committee, of which Presi-
dent Harry B. Hutchins, is chairman,
is making every effort to successfully
entertain the vistors. W. M. Aiken,
principal of the high school, is vice-
chairman of the committee.
Hot Water Showers Installed in Field-

Owing to Lack of Interest Start of
Fall Event Is Delayed
Owing to the scarcity of entrants
and the general lack of interest in the
fall tennis tournament for the Com-
stock trophy Intramural Director
Rowe has postponed the first round
until tomorrow.3
It has been decided to hold a meet-
ing of all tennis players at 5:00 o'clock
in Waterman gymnasium today. To
aid in arousing the interest of tennis
enthusiasts Director Rowe has had 250
postal cards sent to all those who are
recorded in the intramural register as
interested in tennis.
The drawings for the first day's play
will be printed in tomorrow's issue of
The Michigan Daily.
Courses Will Be Opened to Students
For First Time in Many
A number of changes have been
made in the faculties of the .different
departments, and several new courses.
are being offered. On the rhetoric
faculty Burton Grimm will take the
place of F. G. Tompkins, who is now
head of the English department at De-
troit Central High School. Edward
S. Everett is a new instructor in rhet-
oric, and Martin Feinstein and Miss
Alice Snyder will be assistants in the
same department. George C. Wright
will conduct Arthur D. DeFoex's
classes in English in the engineering
department, while Mr. Grinnell will
take Glen D. Bradley's courses in the
same subject.
Prof.,T. A. Bogle, of the law depart-
mnent, has returned after a semester's
absence. G. C. Grismore, '12-'14, wil
have charge of . prtice cutrt'- and
practical conveyancing. A new course
in Roman law is offered.
Among the new courses offered are
two groups both dealing with litera-
ture, one intended'primarily for grad-
uates and the other for graduates and
undergraduates. The nine courses are
listed under the Comparative litera-
ture section of the graduate depart-
ment's announcement.
Dr. Taylor, who has been appointed
temporary head of- the Semetis and
Helenistic Greek departments, will
give two new courses in Hebrew and
Jewish history.
An engineering law course is being
considered by a joint committee rep-
resenting the two departments. Stu-
dents interested may inquire of Dean
Bates or Dean Cooley. Albion college
has proposed a course whereby stu-
dents from Albion college come to
Michigan at the end of their third
year, take the junior engineering work
and receive a bachelors degree at. the
regular Albion commencement. They
then continue with the senior engi-
neering work here and receive the
regular degree. The matter is now
before the regents.
J. Fred Lawton, '11, of Detroit, was
the principal speaker at the banquet
given to the group of 100 membership
comimtteemen by the University Y. M.
C. A. in Newberry hall last night.
Ralph E. Snyder, '14L, chairman of
the comimttee, instructed the men for

the one night campaign for members
which followed the banquet. Presi-
dent W. C. Mullendore, '14, '16L, of the
Y. M. C. A. presided. After the dinner
the men disbanded for work. Reports1
late last night showed a gain of sever-
al hundred over the membership at
this time last year,
