February Set as Date of First Duel
With Eastern College
Interest has been stimulated in
fencing this year by the announce-
ment thatan aggregation of foil art-
ists will journey to Cornell next Feb-
ruary. This is the first eastern inter-
collegiate match scheduled, in the his-
tory of fencingat Michigan.
It is known that Michigan will find
a worthy foe in the Red team, as it
won the eastern intercollegiate cham-
pionship two years ago, and was sec-
ond only to Columbia last season. No
other important matches have been
scheduled thus far, but there are sev-
eral in view, and it is possible that
the team will meet Chicago univer-
sity again this year.
Prospects for a good fencing team
are bright, as there is a larger amount
of talented material to pick from than
ever before. Prospective tryouts, as
well as members of last year's team,
will meet at 4:30 o'clock tomorrow af-
ternooh in the trophy room of Wat-
erman gymnasium.
Coach John F. Macklin, of the Mich-
igan Agricultural college, is authority
for the statement that he is opposed
to any change being made in the usual
date for the playing of the Michigan-
M. A. C. game. He stated that all agi-
tation for an earlier date is unauthor-
"What I want is an easier game the
week following the Michigan contest,"
said Coach Macklin on the subject. "As
it is, we are now playing the Wolver-
ines a week later than heretofore, and
the' date is satisfactory, for it gives
the boys an incentive to get into fight-
ing shape earlie in the season."
Michigamua and Sphinx Go On Record
As Favbring Movement For
Better Facilities in
Petitions Circulating Among Students
Receive Large Number Of
Signatures ,
Campus agitation for increased gym-
nasium facilities received the endorse-
ment of Michigamua and Sphinx, sen-
ior and junior honor societies, -when
vigorous resolutions favoring the
present movement were unanimously
passed yesterday, and will be placed
before the Regents at their coming
The action taken by. Michigama and
Sphinx was similar to that taken on
Sunday by Druids, senior literary hon-
or society, and which other campus
organizations are expected to take be-
fore the present campaign comes ,to
a close. The proposition i. to be pre-
sented to Griffins, all-campus society,
Archons, junior law society, and the
engineering organizations, and it is
expected that all of them will take
favorable action.
In a statement yesterday afternoon,
Dean Victor C. Vaughan pronounced
the present facilities at Waterman
gymnasium as inadequate to meet the
needs to which they are put. This
expression of opinion by the universty
medical head came following a tour

of inspection of the Waterman gym-
nasium,.during which he made a thor-
ough examination of the locker rooms
and shower baths.
The petitions which are now being
circulated on the campus, and which
are intended to express the student
sentiment in favor of the gymnasium
project, are gaining new signatures in
large numbers. From several of the

For several months Francis C.
Hayward, '17, has found studying an
irksome and prosaic occupation. When
he sat down to work with a book in
hand, his thoughts would drift from
the pages to people and places far re-
mote., Nothing would induce his mind
to concentrate upon the scholarly task
before hin. The secret of it all was
a girl. Dan Cupid had smitten the
would-be-student and the sting of his
darts was beyond cure.
But Hayward solved the problem
Saturday night by going into Detroit,
and eloping with Emma Major, of that
city, the girl of his dreams. She Is 19
years old, younger than her husband.
When asked yesterday, if there was
any particular bit of romance connect-
ed with the marriage, Hayward's room-
jnate stated that the couple had, been
close friends for three years.

help mitigate the suffering of Ann
Arbor unfortunates. Just what 'or-
ganization will be benefited, has not
yet been decided, and there is a pos-
sibility of giving the money to help
swell the Belgian Relief fund, but the
majority of the committee are in fav-
or of the latter plan.
Approximately 1,000 tickets have
been, sold thus far, according to Min-
erva Bowen, business manager. The
heaviest sale was reported at the desk
at the Union and at Wahr's book store.
The pasteboards may be had at 25
cents each.
Honor Gaines, '16, will assume the
responsibilities of head page. A bug-
ler, dressed in the traditonal garb, will
announce, and conduct the various
numbers on the program.
The Spanish dance, LaCachuea, will
be ushered in and accompanied by a
picked string orchestra of the Man-
dolin club. Mandolin and guitar art-
ists will compose the group of accom-
panists. Six women will be included
in the dance, led by Helen Elq, '14.
Alice Evans, director of Barbour
gym, is daily lending her assistance
to the training of the dances, devot-
ing the chief portion of her time to
