GIGANTIC PROJEC T
BGNS TOM ORROW'
Mobilization to Be Officially Launched1
With Committee of 350 Men
and Many Outside
Announcement was made, last night,
of a change in the method of holding
tryouts for places on the Varsity De-
bating team, which is to take part in
the Mid-West debate on March 22. Each
of the four literary societies will sel-
ect six men in the preliminaries held
before December 15, which will be put
in charge of the Oratory department.
This squad of 24 men will be given
hearings before a committee coin-
posed of the faculty of oratory and
others selected for the purpose, and
gradually eliminated until six men are
finally chosen to represent the uni-
versity. This new arrangement gives
each society six men from which the
final choice is made instead of three
as formerly. In addition the tryouts
will be given more chances for prac-
tice and experience in speaking before
the oratorical committee.
Any one who may wish to try out
for this team may do so through the
literary societies, or by arrangement
with the faculty of the Oratory de-
partment. All students are eligible,
subject to the general eligibility rules
of the university,
This is the first year that Michigan
will compete in the Mid-West League
which was organized last spring. An-
nual contests have been held with
Wisconsin for the past five years but,
under the new arrangement this is
the first year that Michigan will meet
Illinois on the platform, and every
possible effort is being put forth to
develop a winning team for this initial
The debate will be held on the night
of March 26. Illinois will contend
with Michigan in Ann Arbor at Uni-
versity Hall, and the other MAchiga
team will meet Wisconsin at Madison,
on the same date.
"Tommy" Hughitt has been award-
ed the the Heston-Schulz trophy as the
most valuable player to the Michigan
football team this season. The cup is
annually awarded by Huston Brothers'
to the player selected by the head
coach, first assistant coach, and train-
er of the Michigan team; each of these
voting for four players in the order of
their.worth to the team.
The result of yesterday's vote was
as follows: Hughitt, 5; Raynsford, 6;
Maulbetsch, 7; Cochran, 12. Accord-
ingly, Hughitt was the first choice of
"In all the years since 1876,
there has been no greater reason
for giving thanks to Almighty
God than in this year 1914. The
United States is at peace with

stars and stripes symbolize to

third place; Raynsford was the-unan-
imous second choice; Maulbetsch had
one first and two thirds; and Cochran
received three fourths.
In announcing the vote, the judges
made clear the rules which governed,
their votes. The trophy is not intend-
ed for the most brilliant individual
player, necessarily, nor for the biggestj
ground gainer, as this would give no'
lineman a possibility of winning the.
cup. The purpose is to honor, the man
who has been' of the most service to
his team, not only on. the 'field of bat-
tle, but in faithfulness in practice, and
even off the field by his example and
aid to the other members of the team.
"Si" Huston, '03D, and Roscoe B.
Huston, '02-'04L, are the donors of the
trophy, which was won last year by
James Craig, with Hughitt second
choice, It is named the Heston-Schulz
trophy in honor of the two Michigan
players who made Walter Camp's All-
Time All-American eleven.1

The awards were not made upon the
basis of participation in 'any particu-
lar game or games, as there has nev-
er been a set rule for awarding the
Varsity letters. In the past,, men who
have played as substitutes in the bigj
games have several times not been on
the monogram list; while occasionally
players who have 'not participated in
the important games have been given
The awards are made on the basis
of service to the team. Faithfulness in
practices, and spirit on and off the
field are all considered. The athletic
authorities aim to make the "M" mean
as much as possible, and to stand for
something more than the mere chance
of getting into a "big" game because a
regular is injured.
Of the men who receive letters this
fall, all but James were in the Cornell
or Pennsylvania game. The veteran
end played against Harvard, and in
most of the early season games. Hue-
bel was in the Pennsylvania game for
a few minutes, but was in neither the
Harvard or Cornell games, and was
not on the list. Rehor, another soph-
omore, was in the Harvard game for
a short time, but not in either of the
last two games, and did not get his
insignia. With these two exceptions,:
however, 'all of the players in the.

agers, an'd most of them will probably
be called upon for short talks. The

RHETORIC DEPARTMENT ADOPTS
NEW COUSE IN BOOK REVIEWS
L. L. Bryson of the rhetoric depart-
ment is giving a course in literary
criticism from a practical journalistic
viewpoint. It is known as course, 12,
and consists in having the students
review books for the Michigan Alum-
nus,' The Michigan Daily, and the lit-
erary page of the Detroit Tribune. By
thus having their work printed, the
students are given the advantage of
seeing their criticism in print and of
hav~ing it criticised by newspaper men
in accordance with their own ideas.
Possession of the fourth set of num-
erals for class football rests Detween
the senior laws and the junior lits,
who will meet at 4:00 o'clock this af-
ternoon on south Ferry field to settle
The senior laws have suffered two
defeats in the final round, one at the
hands of the soph lits, and one by the
fresh engineers, to whom they were
forced to default. The laws were put
into the first round by their defeat of
the senior engineer team. Three games
were played between these two teams,
the first two being scoreless ties, and
the third being won by the laws on a
field goal. .
The junior lits have been defeated
but once, that time by the junior laws,
and they have beaten the senior engi-
neers in a 27 to 7 game. With the lits
working at this rate, the laws will
meet one of the strongest teams in
the series, and will have only added
experience to -their advantage. In
view of the comparative showings of
the teams, the odds are distinctly in
the favor of the lits.
Marauders Plunder Several Dwellings
Petty thieves have been pursuing
their calling unrestrained in Ann Ar-
bor recently, according to reports
from several student rooming and fra-
ternity houses. The thieves seem to
have purposely overlooked valuables,
taking small articles instead. Spec-
tacles, shoes, small amounts of cur-
rency, and a mackinaw have disap-
peared. Goods have -been removed
from one house for the third time.
The local police say that none of these
cases have been reported at headquar-
which a Michigan team ever competed,
the annual includes an alphabetical
list of Michigan's competitors, with,
relative standings. By reference to
this table, it is possible to prove with-
out delay the all-time superiority of
the Maize and Blue. This feature is
expected to make the book especially
popular for out-of-town circulation.
Yost's All-Time Michigan football
eleven, upon which "Jimmie" Craig
has just been placed, is printed exclu-
sively in the annual, along with a sec-
ond team which is said to include two
members of the 1914 Varsity, and two
men who played last year. Cuts of
football stars and athletic coaches and
authorities are among the contents.
Eligibility rules, regulations for the
award 'of insignia and rules for class
competition are included under the
portion of the book devoted to the or-
ganization of the athletic association.
The annual's first pages are given ov-
er to a brief history of athletics at-
Michigan, by Floyd A. Rowe, and a
short biography of Coach Yost, by F.
M. Church, grad.
A list of all wearers of the "M" is
published, the names being arranged
in alphabetical order. The book con-
cludes with a history of the work done
by the intramural department during
its first year of activity.
The annual, which sells for 25 cents
a copy, will go on sale at the book-
stores tomorrow morning, after the
preliminary distribution at tonight's,

ed edition will be exhausted in a short
