Conditions in Eastern Cities Doy Not,
Seem to Favor Excursion of.
Unless negotiations with other cities
prove more successful and satisfact-
ory, there is a possibility that the
Michigan combined musical clubs will
take no eastern trip during the Christ-
mas holidays this year.N
So far, but five or six cities have
given adequate guarantees for the pre-
sentation of a concert. Financial con-
ditions in the east seem to be such
that arrangements for a profitable trip
cannot be assured. Those concerned
say it is due to war situations, and un-
equal competition with the eastern
W. 1. Shafer, '16, who had charge
of the trip for the musical clubs, was
forced to resign from the management
because of scholastic duties. Adna R.
Johnson, '16L, was appointed to fill
the vacancy and to complete the plans
underway. He has been compelled to
resign for similar reasons. Conse-
quently the clubs are laboring unaer
severe handicaps for this year's trip.
The management, however, is con-
fident of giving the trip, since plans
have gone so far. Definite announce-
ment of the tour, if it will be attempt-
ed, will appear later.

Most Successful Conference Ever held
in Opinion of Directors
of Project
Before an audience which numbered
more than 4,000, Fred B. Smith, of
New York, spoke at the final big pub-
lic platform meeting of the Boys' con-
ference held in Hill auditorium Sunday
afternoon. In addition to the 2,000 con-
ference delegates who occupied the en-
tire first floor of the auditorium, more
than 1,500 students of the university
were in the audience.
After the invocation which was pro-
nounced by Dr. F. H. Burt of Chicago,
the Glee club undqer the direction of
Kenneth Westerman, '14, rendered a,
The speaker of the afternoon chose
as his subject, "A Strong Man," and,
at the outset of his remarks,-.said that
he wished to correct an impression
which had been spread on the campus
that he was an officer of a large trust
company. He stated that his position
.was simply in the capacity of trying
to force a corner in the asbestos mar-
ket, and "for a man who had spent
more than 25 years of his life as a Y.
M C. A. secretary, that wasn't such a
bad position after all.",
Makes Plea For Abstinence
Mr. Smith devoted the principal part
of his address to impressing upon his
hearers the fact that any fool could be
an infidel, but that it took a real man
to be a Christian.. He made a plea
for total abstinence and brought out
the interesting fact that in Oklahoma,
a license was required not only for the
man who sold liquor, but also for the
man who drank it.
At the close of his address which was
mainly in the form of an old-fashioned
revival sermon, he asked all those who
wished to become professing Chris-'
tian to fill out the cards which would
be provided by the ushers for that pur-
pose. More than 400 of these cards
were signed by university students,
and over 600 of the conference dele-
gates made a definite decision.

Secretary Talks to Y.M.C.A. Gathering
in Hope of Helping Some of
His Audience

At a recent conference held between
President Harry B. Hutchins, and Don
Smith, '16E, and George McMahon, '15,
presidents of the junior .engineer and
junior lit classes respectively, the ob-
jectional feaures of former hops were
brought out and the basis of elimina-
tion was discussed, if the petition for
the reinstatement of the J-Hop is to
be considered by the university author-
In addition to the reduetion in ex-
pense, and the democratizing of the
function, President Hutchins pointed
out that greater control over the con-
duct of the dancers would be demand-
ed, and that some provisions would
have to be made for taking care of
Spectators have always presented a.
troublesome problem to hop commit-
tees of former years. Many people
wish to see the decorations, and to
watch the dancers, and have been will-
ing to pay for seats in the balcony for
the privilege. Students had become
accustomed to being admitted as spec-
tators after 12:00 o'clock, free of
charge. At the time of the last hop it
had been previously anr!ounced that
no one would be given free ad-nission
even after midnight, but a . crowd
gathered and tried to force its way in.
Its efforts caused the so-called riot
to which many have attributed the
abolition of the J-Hop.
According to an announcement made
by the presidents of the two junior
classes, the approval of all class or-
ganizations favorable to a return of
the hop must be presented before
Monday. It is planned to present the
petition to the special meeting of the
senate council which has been called
to consider the Christmas .acation
question, next Monday night.

Preparations and rehearsals are
under way for the second appearance
of the combined musical clubs before
the student body in Hill auditorium,
the evening of December 10.
This entertaimnent will be in the
nature of a pre-vacation trip concert.
It will feature practically all the num-
bers to be used in the tour through
the east:
Among the novelties is the singing
6f the Chinese national anthem by the
Glee club. The words are to be sung
in Chinese. This is ,omething en-

to similar attempts in other fields.

Sunday night at which "Dinnie" Upton,.
coach of the Grand Rapids Central

conference was formally declared at an
end. The last official act was the pass-
ing of resolutions thanking the people
of Ann Arbor for their hospitality.
Today, in speaking of the conference
.one of the officials said that it had
been the most successful gatherings of
its kind ever held. There were 2,042
registered delegates representing 232
communities and 112 different boys' or-
ganizations were included in the vari-
ous delegations. Lenawee county had
the largest delegation, numbering 122
boys from 16 different points.

direction of J. A. Van Dis, State Boys'
Work secretary of the Y. M. C. A., W.
W. Welsh, secretary of the Civic asso-
ciation, and Principal W..M. Aiken of
the Ann Arbor high school, assisted by
