I L. Nutting, '15L, as
entitled, "When Sa-

tion of the evening.
well executed, and
s keenly humorous

Michigan's track prospects brighten-
ed considerably yesterday afternoon,
when "Bo" Wilson pole vaulted three
inches above the present gym record
of 11 feet three. Wilson cleared the
height of 11 feet six inches easily,
apparently going 10 inches above the
bar.
Wilson was a freshman last year,
but was ineligible during the track
season. His work has received faculty
approbation this season however, and
Michigan seems destined to have a real
pole vaulter. Last year, Wilson clear-
ed 11 feet eight in the gym, but was
not officially credited with the mark, as
it was not made in competition.
He is credited with 12 feet four
inches in high school, which is but
two inches below the world's inter-
scholastic record.
Another surprise featured yester-
day's workouts in the gym, when Cor-
bin, the hurdler on last year's All-
Fresh squad, cleared five feet six, high
jumping. Corbin has never competed
in this event before, and his perform-
ance was a distinct surprise to Coach
Farrell. Corbin uses the style Pf
jumping made famous by George Ho-
rine, who two or three years ago was
conceded to be the greatest high
jumper in the world. Corbin's sur-
prising success in this event, might
mean his withdrawal from the hur-
dles.
"Jimmy" Craig turned out yesterday,
to assist Coach Farrell and Captain
Smith in their early efforts at getting
the men in shape. Craig was a star
hurdler two years ago, and should
prove valuable assistance to the team.
Several promising men have shown
up for the mile, half-kmile and two-
mile events. Judging from the ex-
celent. early season form displayed
thus far, both Murphy ad Ufe of last
year's squad will have to hustle con-
siderably to land their old positioni.
Lynch and Kuivinen, two new can-
didates for the two-mile race, should
prove valuable material in this event.
Coach Farrell stated yesterday, that
in his opinion Michigan was fully 50
per cent stronger this year in this
race than she was last season.
GARGOYLE "DANCE NUMBER" TO
BE PLACED ON SALE SATURDAY
Brilliantly clad in the most attract-
ive cover which has graced a Gargoyle
for many years, the "Modern Dance"
number of the campus humor publi-
cation will appear on the streets and
news stands Saturday morning. The
entire style of cover has been changed,'
so that hereafter the drawings can be
framed.
"How to Dance The Gargoyle Ga-
votte," is the title of a long article
written especially for the wallflowers
of the campus. This story is illustrat-
ed by six clever cuts, which make the
execution of the dance a simple mat-
ter. . A double page drawing, "Any
Old Night At The Union," by Joe Wil-
son, '17A, cuts by Joe Kucera, '17A,
Lamar Kishlar, '17E, and C. T. Bishop,
'16E, comprise a greater part of the
art work.
Law Review Contains Current Articles
In the December number of the
Michigan Law Review, which was is-
sue.d yesterday, there are several ar-
ticles touching upon current legal
events. Prof. H. L. Wilgus, of the de-
partment of law, has an extensive ar-
ticle on the "Corporations and Express
Trusts as Business Organizations."
Other articles are "The Law's Delay,"
by Grant Foreman, and "A New Inter-
pretation of the Sherman Act," by
Clarence Eldridge.

W. R. Mills, '18, A. J. Gornetzky, '17,
and S. B. Simmons, '17E, have finally
been selected as the successful writers
of the music for the 1915 Michigan Un-
ion opera, which will be presented in
Hill auditorium late in March. Mills
is the composer of the major part of
the accepted contributions, eight of his
songs being selected. He may also
write the opening chorus, or finale of
the second act.
The opening chorus of the first act
and one song are the work of Gornet-
zky, while Simmons had one of his
songs accepted.
The compositions of the twleve men
who entered the competition, have
been in the hands of Professors Theo-
dore Harrison and Earl V. Moore, '12,
of the university school of music for
more than three weeks. Both judges
were well qualified to make the selec-
tions, Moore having written most of
the music for two previous operas. It
is said that the music is up to the
standard set in the past productions.
Cast tryouts will be held at 7:00
o'clock Monday night in the Alpha Nu
rooms on the fourth floor of Univer-
sity hall. The tryouts, which will be
preliminary to a later elimination,'
will consist in the rendering of a song,
dance, monologue, or anything that
will show the man's ability to the best
advantage. There is a particular need
for comedy parts,and vaudeville stunts
to be placed in various parts of the
production.
The judges, Monday night, will pick
out the best material, and these men
will be given parts to learn during
Christmas vacation. The final cast,
will then be picked some time after
vacation.
MICHIGAN TECHNIC TO ISSUE
DECEMBER VACATION NUMBER
Magazine to Contain Three Articles
by Professors; Also Address
of Hemans
According to the present plans of
the management, every engineer will
have an opportunity to take a copy
of the December number of the Tech-
nic home'with him at Christmas. Much
space in this number is devoted to de
partmental affairs, including faculty
and student research work, class plans
and the engineering honorary socie-
ties.
The address of L. T. Hemans, of the
Michigan railroad commission, deliv-
ered to the fresh engineers in Novem-
her, is printed in full, as well as the
report of the committee on the com-
bined courses with Albion college.
One editorial deals with the plans and
purposes of the new engineering so-
ciety.
Three special articles are included,
one by Prof. A. F. Greiner, one by
Prof. T. R. Running, and one by L. J.
Watson. Prof. J. R. Allen contributes
a letter on the spring trip of the me-
chanical engineers.
CITY OF UNIVERSITY MISSION
CAPTURED BY ENGLISH TROOPS
According to dispatches received
yesterday by local officials, that entire
portion of Arabia in which is included
the city of Busrah has been conquered
by the English and Hindoo troops, in
a recent conflict with the followers of
the Turkish sultan.
This item of news is of particular
interest to Michigan students, because
of the fact that the University of Mich-
igan Busrah mission is located in the
midst of the conquered country, and
the recent change in governments will
insure the safety of the Michigan
alumni that are stationed there.

TOTAL OF 45 MEN ENROLL FOR

either 16 or 20 hands each will be ob-
served as binding. Ten nights are to

Christmas vacation. Scores are to be
regularly registered, and a prize is to
be awarded the winner at the close
of the ten rounds.
University Mill Tax May Be Reduced
Delegates to the state grange, in
convention at Battle Creek, are await-
ing a report of the legislative commit-
tee in favor of reducing the mill tax
for the support of the university. It
is stated that the university will not
suffer from the proposed change, be-
cause of the recent boost in yaluations.
The mill tax for the Michigan Agricul-
tural college will be given a corres-
ponding raise, if the university tax is
lowered.
