PUNT WINS TITLE
Close Contest For Campus Laurels, in
Football aoes to Second A

TRURSTON'S RICK RESULTS IN
SAFETY AND DECIDES BATTLE
Campbell and Brown Play Stellar Ball
For Junior Laws; Field
Thurston's long punt, in the third
quarter of the final game of the inter-
class football series, forced the jun-
ior laws to count a safety for the soph
lits, who walked off the field with the
campus championship in their pos-
session. The only' score of the day
was made, when Rowan downed the
ball behind his line for the two points
which defeated the laws.
In spite,of the heavy law line, the lit
backs did consistent work, straight
football being the rule of the dr.
Campbell and Brown did the ground
gaining for the laws, Campbell being
able to gain almost at will through
the lit line, while Brown's end runs
netted half of the total yards covered
by the laws.
The laws started, in the first quar-
ter, to hammer their way to the lit
goal, but were stopped at the 20 yard
line. Adams gained for the lits, who
showed .a strong come-back spirit,
rushing the ball past the center of the
field, before they lost it on downs.
The ball was the laws', at the begin-
z4ng of the second quarter, and Camp-
bell made first lown in two plunges.
Brown made a long run across the
field that netted five yards. The lit line
took a brace when Reid was substitut-
ed for Newton and held the laws for
dqwns. The lits failedto make their
downs and the ball went over to the
laws on the lit 20 yard line. Camp-
bell went through, and a touchdown
for the laws seemed sure, when time
was called for te half;
Between halves each team received
"pepper talks" from some of the Var-
sity men, the lits being lectured by
Bushnell and the laws by McHale.
The laws kicked off to the lits on the
start of the third quarter and Adams
returned to the center of the field. A
trick play lost about 10 yards for the
lits and Thurston punted. It was a
65 yard punt and went over the law
goal line after Rowan had made a safe-
ty possible. The ball was scrimmaged
on the 20 yard line and the'laws had
covered half the distance to. the lit
goal when the 4uarter closed.
The laws had the ball on the lit 20
yard line to start the fourth quarter,
and after Brown had run it to the cen-
ter of the field, it was lost on downs.
One more opportunity opened itself for
the lits when they carried the ball to
the laws 30 yard line, and attempted a

TRACK MANAGERS CONVENE TO
PROMOTE INTEREST IN TRACK
In an effort to perfect the present
plan for stimulating an interest in
track work, class track managers are
to meet Tuesday night with Trainer
Farell and Captain Smith of the var-
sly track scuad, at which time the
present scheme will be considered
Realizing that Michigan'sitrack
prospects are none too bright, it is the
intention of Trainer Farrell to.'enroll
the various frack managers as "scouts"
for varsity material. As soon as men
contesting for positions on class teams
show- unusual promise, they will be
reported to Trainer Farrell who will
shift them to the varsity squads. These
squads will work out under those
who have had experience in the diff-
erent events. Last Tuesday's meeting
started the new idea and it is hoped
that at th3 next gathering the plans
can be completed.

University Officials 11ill Decide
Advisability of Granting
STUDENTS WISH EARLY START
In response-to many protests against.
the shortening of the Christmas vaca-
tion, A. T. Ricketts, '15E, president of1
the student council, took up the mat-
ter yesterday with university officials.
The senate 'council will consider the
question of dismissing classes the Fri-
day before the holid.ay, at its next
Students have spoken to several
members of their representative board,
askd g'them to begin the circulation of4
petitions. The idea of petitioning the
faculty was dropped, because the sen-
ate council will take the same action
on the request of the student council,
as it wvould if the lists of signatures
were presented to it, according to as-
surances given to Ricketts by a uni-
Students have objected to the vaca-
tion as announced in the calendar, be-
cause those living at a distance, and:
those who would not be 'able to leave
before Wednesday, would not arrive
at their homes until Christmas eve.
Others hold that the students are enti-
tied ~ t. a long Christmas vacation,
since the university is in session two
weeks later in the spring, than many
UNIVE.RS1Y WOMEN TO HELP
RELIEVE BELGIAN SUFFERERS
Respond: g to the opportunity pre-
sented by Miss Mildred Seyster, '13,
University of Illinois, at the social ser-
vice conference following Lloyd Doug-
las' address in Newberry hall Friday
evening, university women have enter-
ed the Belgian Relief movement insti-
tuted by lethany -Circle, a new univer-
sity Christian orgafization.
The work consists of sewing material
provided at the Church 'of Christ. Men
of the city and the state are providing
the money, which is used by Mr.
George Knepper, pastor of the church,'
to buy materials. Over 500 garments
have already been made, and 1,500 are
in the making.
Several of the sororities and organ-
ized women's clubs have signifiedtheir
intention of giving over special even-
ings for the work, -an groups have'
come from the State Normal College,
at Ypsilanti. The church is open for
work at all hours, except Wednesday
and Saturday evenings, some universi-
ty wonan being always in charge.
Will Hold Tests of Musical Scores
This Afternoon; Name of
Play is Altered
Sylvan S. Grosner, '12-'14L, author
of this year's Michigan Union opera,
announced last evening that present
plans succeeding, the 1914-15 opera
cast will play before six large cities
during the spring vacation,
These cities are Detroit, Grand Rap-
ids, Chicago, Milwaukee, South Bend,
and Toledo. A second performance
at Detroit z ill conclude the trip.
The statement has created great
enthusiasm. Such an inducement will
undoubtedly result in one of .the larg-
est cast try-outs ever held. Competi-
tion will be unusually keen among
the music and orchestra men as well.
Try-outs will be held for the 10 stu-
dents who have submitted musical
scores, at 2.30 o'clock this afternoon
in the University school of music. This
totals five complete scores. Grosner
says the caliber of these composi-
tions is unusually high.
The tryouts were supposed to have
been held last evening, but owing to
the act that several of the judges
were unable to attend, due to sick-
ness and being out of town, they had
to be postponed. Theodore Harrison,
of the school of music faculty, Ken-
neth Baxter, '15E, manager of the
opera, and Grosner will be the judges.
Some of the writers have submitted
pieces for former operas which were
seriously reconsidered as material.
Althougn the name of the play has
been changed from the one originally
given It by Grosner, the committee
refuses to tell what the piece will be
Work 4n the production of the opera
has already been begun. Bert St.
John, director, Baxter, and Grosner,
have held several conferences in De-
troit. According to Mr. St. (John,
there will be absolutely no time wast-
ed in rewriting parts.
When Grosner wrote the play, he
submitted a large number of lyrics-
more than have ever been used. This
was done with the idea of giving a
broader scope of selection. However,
it has been decided to use all of his
lyrics, providing sufficient music of
a high standard, is submitted. '
SENIOR LITS "CASTLE HOUSE"
CABARET . DANCE IS SUCCESS
More than 150 people attended the
"Castle House cabaret" dance, given
by the senior lits at the Union yester-
day afternoon. The affair was the best
attended and most successful . the
history of the class.
Metropolitan cabaret numbers by
the "Meister Singers" quartette, of
Detroit, featured the program. G. B.
Smith, '16E, and F. D. Everitt, '16E,
put on a fancy dance number, while
Chase Sikes, '16E, sang two , so-
los. Charles Kendrick, '15, and Earl
B. McKinley, '16, furnished a lively
mandolin and piano number.
New York ]Wagazine Gives Wolverine
Position at Fullback on
HARVARD GETS THREE PLACES;
PRINCETON IS NEXT FAVORED
Hughitt, IReimann, and McHale Receive
Monorable Mention From
Maulbetsch is the only Michigan man
to secure a place on Vanity Fair's All-
American team, as the "German Bul-
let" has been given the fullback posi-
tion by a majority of the sport writers,
who, submitted elevens to the editors
of the New York magazine.
Harvard is given three men on the
mythical team, and Princeton . two,
while one man is taken from Michigan,
Yale, Cornell; Army, Chicago and
Washington and Jefferson.
The fact, that the eleven chosen by
Vanity Fair is based on opinions sub-
mitted by prominent sporting writers
from all over the country, makes this
All-American team really representa-
tive, although Walter Camp's selection
is still regarded as the authentic team.
The other Wolverines to receive
honorable mention are. Reimann and
McHale in the line, and Hughitt in the
backfield. In commenting ,on Michi-
gan's quarterback, th New York writ-
er says "Hughitt. of Michigan, has been
more or less crippled and hardly up to
his true form even late in the. season."
In placing "Maully' in th backfield,
the writer says: ",For onew of the backs,
write in large letters the name of
Maulbetsh, Michigan's battering ram
-one of the old-fashioned line break-
ers. Although so small as to be almost
diminutive, he had no peer on any
team this year, having butted his way
133 yar'ds against Harvard, only to be
stopped in the shadow of the posts.
Against Pennsylvania's somewhat
weaker line, he was irresistible."'
The 1914 AllAmerican, as chosen
by Vanity Fair, is as follows: R. E.-
Hardwick, Harvard; R. T.-Ballin,
Princeton; R. G.-Pennock, Harvard;
C.-Des Jardien, Chicago; L. G.-
Shenk, Princeton; L. T.-Talbott,
Yale; L. E.--Merrill'at, Army; Q. B.-
Barrett, Cornell; L. H.-Spiegel, W.
and J.; F. B.-Maulbetsch, Michigan;
R. H.-Manan, Harvard.

lant fooball team of 1914 met to-
gether, when they appeared in the
Board of Commerce hall as, honor
guests at the big smoker given in
homage of them by the Detroit alum-
ni. The 'vening was marked by great
enthusiasm and spirit.
The speeches of Captain Raynsford,
'15E, and Captain-elect Cochran, '16P,
were received with loud applause.
Judge Murphin also spoke and was
greeted warmly by those present.
"Jim" Strasburg acted as toastmas-
ter, and C. B. Haff, '15L, led the
cheers. Movies of the Harvard and
Pennsylvania games were thrown on
a screen and created great approval.
