Ask Help Of University Men In,

Men students in the university have
joined forces with the fair sex, in the
movement to aid the destitute inhabi-
tants of Belgium, and Albania, and
have begun an active campaign to se-
cure contributions to send to the poor
and homeless of these countries. Head-
quarters for the committee which has
the work in charge are at the Church
of Christ, across from Alumni Memo-
rial hall, and someone will be in
charge -there throughout the day, to re-
ceive the much needed contributions.
University women have responded
to the call for aid most loyally, and so
earnest have been their efforts, that
the sympathies of the whole campus,
deans, professors, students and all
have been focused upon the work that
is being done. Sororities and women's
house clubs are the most active partic-
ipants in the campaign, and sonie of
the women have gone so far as to give

up 10 hours a day to the burdensome
task of making garments for the suf-
ferers in Europe, with the gayest of
Thanksgiving social functions to dis-
tract their minds. Two boxes were
sent yesterday containing in.all nearly
800 dresses for the women and chil-
dren of the stricken countries.
Such noble work on the part of the
university women, has awakened the
interest of the men, and they are now
through a committee, sending out cir-
cular letters to class presidents, and
to the heads of fraternities and house-
clubs, asking for their co-operation, in
raising contributions for the sufferers.
Money, is not necessary; what is want-

John Maulbetsch of Ann Arbor, and
lately halfback on the Michigan foot-
ball team, spends his time now in
making All-American teams. His ef-
forts in the past season have just been
recognized by his being selected on
two more of these imaginary elevens.
Frank G. Menke, of the International
News service picked the following team
which was published in the Detroit
News for Wednesday, November 25:

This team is remarkable from the
fact that no institution is twice repre-
sented in the selection, eleven col-

will place well up in the eastern inter-
collegiate race.
Michigan made a rather sorry show-
ing in the eastern distance classic last
year, and it was considered inadvisa-
ble to send the team east this fall, but
in view of the excellent prospects for
the coming season, it seems quite prob-
able that Michigan will be represented
in 1915.
The cross-country team celebrated
the closs of a successful season on
Thursday, when the eight man team,
entered by the Wolverines, beat the
Detroit "Y" athletes out by the nar-
row margin of one point, in the annual
Thanksgiving Day race of the Detroit
Y. M. C. A.
By winning the Detroit race on
Thursday, Michigan received the De-
troit "Y" cup for one year, and earned
one leg toward the permanent posses-
sion of the trophy. In addition, the
first six Wolverines to finish were giv-
en medals.
K. W. Vance, '16, won tenth place in
Thursday's race instead of Lynch, as
was at first announced. Lynch was un-
able to run, and Vance was substitut-
ed at the last moment.
The election of next year's cross-
country captain will take place next

nounced later.
Prof. S. L. Bigelow, of the chem-,
istry department, narrowly escaped
injury, at 11:00 o'clock, Thursday
night, when his automobile was
struck by a street car on Washtenaw
avenue. The automobile was stand-
ing when struck, Professor Bigelow
having stopped to call his dog which
had escaped from the machine.
Three Classes Favor Return of J-Hop
Three classes went on record yester-
day, as favoring the reestablishment
of the Junior hop, as proposed by
George McMahon, '16, president of the
junior lit class, and Don Smith, '16E,
president of the Junior engineer class.
The senior laws and the senior dents
voted power to their presidents to

ed to two years. In 1876 the depart-
ment became separate, with Dr. Albert
B Prescott as its dean, in which ca-
pacity he continued to serve until his
death in 1905.
It is impossible to make even an
approximate estimate of the influence
Dr. Prescott has had on the elevation
of pharmaceutical education in the
United States. He always stood for
higher education in pharmacy, and
was the first to recognize the import-
ance of laboratory training in phar-
macy. When he was entrusted with
the organization of the department in
1868, he introduced these methods of
instruction, and from that time to this
a feature of the department has been
the requirement of laboratory work
from all students.
Michigan was the first institution to
grant a pharmaceutical degree without
actual drug store experience. Dr.
Prescott realized that this experience
was something which was entirely out-
side the control of a university facul-
ty. It was the aim of the department
therefore to replace the apprenticeship
system with an actual laboratory
course of instruction, under compe-
tent instructors, so that the student
would learn the manufacture of drugs
under ideal conditions,
In 1895 the faculty realized that,
while graduates of its two year course
were in demand, they would be much
better qualified to hold most positions,
if they were to have a more extended
course, than it is possible to give in
two years. A four year course, leading
to the degree of Bachelor of Science
in Pharmacy, was therefore establish-
ed. This gave an opportunity to in-
clude. courses in mathematics, physics
and one or more of the foreign lan-
guages which are so necessary for sci-
entific investigation.
The degree of Master of Pharmacy
which was granted from 1887 to 1895,
was discontinued when the four year
course was established. The depart-
ment has granted about 1,500 degrees,

Celebrated Religions Worker Appears

gir. Fred B. Smith, of New York,
who will speak to men only, on the
Boys' conference program, at Hill au-
0itorium at 3:30 o'clock Sunday af-
ternoon, is ranked as one of the most
successful religious speakers in the
United States today.
For years he has been identified with
the Y. M. C. A. work, and he formerly
traveled as secretary of the Interna-
tional Y. M. C. A. committee. He is
always on the program at the sum-
mer conferences at Lake Geneva, Wis-
consin. Last year he addressed the

Kansas City which 7,500 delegates at-
Mr. Smith was, one of the prime
movers of the Men and Religion For-
-ard movement which swept over the
United States two years ago. He is
now employed as secretary to the pres-
ident of the H. W. Johns-Manville
company.I He accepted this position
on condition that he be given two days
of each week to devote full time to re-
ligious work.
Besides his address for men in the
afternoon, Mr. Smith will speak at the
Baptist church at 10:30 o'clock Sun-
day morning.'
Prof. A. L. Cross' book, "A History
of England and Greater Britain" was
highly rated in a review of the same
in the last number of "The Athenae-
um," an English publication. The arti-
cle ended as follows: "Altogether, it
may be doubted whether there is at
present available another general in-
troduction to English history, which, is
ot the same time, so carefully and at-
tractively written, and so obviously
the product of a sound historian."
Professor Cross' work, which came
out early in August, has proven very
popular as it has already been adopted
by 35 institutions, the last to adopt it
being Princeton. The demand was so
great that it was found necessary to
publish a second edition.


Under Leadership of Professor L. A.
Strauss Since 1908, Society
Shows Improvement
No amount of searching among the
records of the university, or consulting
the oldest memories on the campus,
has been able to cast enlightenment
upon the definite founding of the Com-
dy club.
Though 'one of the olde4t forns of
student endeavor, the dramatic organ-
ization has changed names three times
since 1895. It has seen periods of suc-
cess and apparent failure, finally
gaining a perfection of organization,
which has placed the University of
Michigan in no mean position of au-
thority on collegiate dramatics.
From the clubs, known as the
"Thespians" and "The Dramatic Club,"
the present organization traces its lin-
eage. The first production; as near
as can be ascertained, was staged on
May 10, 1895. Two farces comprised
this initial production. They were
"Woodcock's Little Game," and "Lend
Me Two Shillings."
Norman Hackett, Karl Harriman and
James O'Donnel Bennett are names
connected with the early history of the
Comedy club. The plays were crudely
produced, as compared with the offer-
ings of today. Many struggles in the
formation of an adequate constitution
and personnel of the club ceaused hope
of successful dramatics in,:the univer-
sity to be almost forsaken.
In 1908, Prof. L. A. Strauss, of the
English department, took charge of
the club. Under his guidance the
membership of the organization was
broadened and interest rekindled in
student dramatics. ',The progress ef-
fected in the past few years is notice-
able in the style and quality of presen-
tations staged by the club. "Money,"
"The Scarecrow," and "Pomander
Walk" are plays of the first order, the
latter being the production chosenE
for this year.
Professor Strauss' aim has been to
modernize and advance the character
of the plays given, realizing that stu-'
dent interest can not be aroused in
most cases by the productions of the
past. It is to him that the Comedy
club owes much, for its firm estab-
lishment and success in recent years.
With the inauguration of the month-j
ly performance, the Comedy club has

Plans For Spring Vacation Trip Draw
Much Attention to Present
Year's Show
All members of the Michigan Union,
who are interested in trying out for
cast parts in the 1915 opera, are re-
quested to meet at the Union Monday
night at 7:00 o'clock. At this time,
General Chairman K. S. Baxter, '15E,
will explain the requirements for tak-
ing parts in the cast,' and the date for
the actual tryouts will be announced.
The opera, as is well known, has both
feminine and masculine roles to be
filled. The men who have taken the
leading women's parts during the last
few years have made hits in practical-
ly every case.
With a trip already assured for
spring vacation, it is expected that
this year's production will attract
more attention than any previous
show. Two years ago the opera' went
to Detroit and last year it was played
in Chicago and Detroit, but never be-
fore has anything like a six-day trip
been planned.
Michigan alumni associations in the
cities to be visited will have charge of
the production in each place. During
the performance in Chicago last year,
subscriptions were received of suffi-
cient amounts to gutarantee the suc-
cess of next spring's presentation.
There is similar enthusiasm in the
other cities in which the show will be

rooms. Nominations of delegates to
the convention will be made, and reg-
ular routine business transacted.
