Pennsylvania, Cornell and Syracuse
May Be Only Intersectional
Games in 1915
Michigan Probably Meets Quakers in
Philadelphia on
Nov. 13
Michigan's 1915 football schedule is
still a mystery, so far as official an-
nouncements go, but it seems to be an
assured fact that Pennsylvania,Cornell
and Syracuse will be the only import-
ant games, and that no other inter-
sectional contests will be scheduled.
The rumor of a Dartmouth game was
unfounded, and it is evident that No-
tre Dame will not return to the Wol-
verine gridiron schedule. No steps
were taken towards scheduling a
Princeton game, and the Tiger list, re-'
cently announced, contains no Michi-
gan game.
nThe gCornell game will be the big
attraction on Ferry field, the Big Red
team coming back to Ferry field in
1915, as the first game of a new two
year contract. The Quakers will be
played at Philadelphia, and these two
games will come Nov. 6 and 13, but the
order is still uncertain.
Last year, Pennsy accommodated
Michigan by coming west out of her
turn so that the Maize and Blue might
take on Harvard. Michigan is there-
fore under a moral obligation to ac-
commodate the Quakers in dates this
fall, and Pennsy wants Michigan to
go east Nov. 13, to avoid a conflict
with the Yale-Priiceton battle on Nov.
From the financial standpoint, this
arrangement would also be best for
the Wolverines, although it would ne-
cessitate the Michigan team's winding
up the season away from home. Coach
Yost, from a playing standpoint, would
of course rather finish up the season
on Ferry field with Cornell, and this
undoubtedly would be the most pop-
ular arrangement on the campus. It
seems likely, however, that Cornell
will be booked Nov. 6.
Syracuse will undoubtedly be ad-
vanced a week on the schedule. The
showing of the Methodists this fall en-
titles them to a later date, and as they
desire it, the Salt City eleven seems
due on Ferry field Oct. 30. M. A. C.
will appear in Ann Arbor Oct. 16, leav-
ing Oct. 23 an open date.
Case will undoubtedly get the first
Saturday date, Oct. 2, and it is likely
that Mount Union will be advanced to
a Saturday date, which would be Oct.
9. Vanderbilt probably will not come
north again next season, and it is un-
certain as to who will get the Wednes-
day dates of Sept. 29 and Oct. 6.
The Wolverine schedule therefore
shapes itself as follows:
Sept. 29-Open.
Oct. 2-Case.
Oct. 6--Open.
Oct. 9-Mount Union.
Oct. 16-M. A. C.
Oct. 23-Open.
Oct. 30-Syracuse.
Nov. 6-Cornell. (Or Pennsy at Phil-

Playing of "Rag Pickers"
Scores Biggest Hilt
on Program


With the combined concert and en-
ertainment given by the Harvard and
Michigan musical clubs in the Hotel
Pontchartrain at.Detroit, January 2, the
vacation trip of the Michigan Glee and
Mandolin club was brought to a close.
Although one of the shortest trips
ever taken, it was one of the most suc-
cessful both from a social and a fin-
ancial standpoint. There were good
audiences in all cities, and the recep-
tions accorded to the visiting Michi-
gan men were especially cordial.
The features of the concerts were
the playing of the "Rag Pickers" quin-
tet, composed of LeRoy Scanlon, '16L,
piano; H. F. Forsyth, '17E, violin; F.
C. Wheeler, '15E, cello; L. 0. Aldrich,
'17E, saxophone, and K. F. Boucher,
'15, traps, and the skits produced by
H. L. Nutting, '15L, and Durward Grin-
stead, '16L. The impersonations of
the latter two caused special comment
from the press, while the ability shown
by Scanlon at the piano in the "Rag
Pickers," made a sensation.'
Chase Sikes, '16E, was the solo star
of the trip, his singing in competition
with the Harvard club, proving his
superiority as the soloist of the even-
ing. Russell Mills, '15E, leader of the
Mandolin club, and Roy Parsons, '14,
were the only other soloists scoring
heavily during the trip, though the
work of U. S. Wilson, '16, was well re-
Dances, smokers, dinners and recep-
tions were offered by the alumni at all
stops during the trip, their treatment
of the club being especially cordial.
Upholds Ruling of Lower Tribunals;
Judge Administers
$100 Fine
During the holidays the final round
of the fight of local saloon-keepers up-
on the students' anti-liquor law was
completed The supreme court con-
firmed the ruling of the lower courts
of guilty against Lawrence J. Damni
on the charge of selling liquor to stu-
dents. The final decree of the supreme
court is of great importance, as the
trial was a test case, and upon its out-
come rested the fate of saloonists who
sold intoxicating drinks to students.
Damm was arraigned in October
1913, on the charge of selling liquo
to students. When his case came up
for trial in the circuit court, the jury
contrary to instructions from JudgE
E. D. Kinne, referred the case toa
higher court. Following the suprem
court decision, Damm was fined $10
by Judge Kinne. George Schaible, an
other saloon-keeper, was fined $50 or
a similar charge.

the Belgians, to be given by Leonora
Allen and Albert Lindquest, will be
held in Hill auditorium on Jan. 14, the
date left open by the postponement of
the Busoni concert.

The management is making an effort
to entirely fill the hall, a feat which
* was only accomplished at the recital
- by Paderewski last year. In line with
this, the prices will be as low as pos-
sible, and will be announced within a
few days. Posters will be placed about
the campus.
During the holidays, Lindquest tour-

Chicago Decorating Firm to Submit
Plans Unlike Anything
Ever Seen ind
Ann Arbor
Question of Providing Booths for More
Than Four Couples
Causes Trouble
Preparations for the Junior hop,n
which were under way during vaca-~
tion, were reported at the first meet-I
ing of the hop committee at the Mich-i
igan Union last night. All of the four-c
teen members of the committee, rep-
resenting the various junior classes,t
were present.
The hop will be held in the combined
gymnasiums on Friday, February 5, the
end- of the second week of examina-
tions. Although few details have been
arranged, the committee has the gen-l
eral plans well in hand.-
A Chicago decorating firm now has
a representative in the city, who is
said to have original plans for deco-I
rations, such as have never been used
here before, ready to submit at the,
next meeting, which will -be held at
the Union at 3:30 o'clock next Sunday.
Several other firms will submit bids at
this time, while the matters of music,
programs and invitations are to be de-
cided then.
Tickets will go on sale each after-
noon from 4:00 to 5:30 o'clock, start-
ing Monday, Jan. 11, in the hallway on
the second floor of the Michigan Union.
The sale is limited to 300 couples, the
tickets costing $5.00. For the first
four days, only juniors may securet
tickets; on Friday and Saturday, tick-r
ets may be bought by juniors, seniors
and members of the faculty; after this
time, the sale will be open to the en-#
tire student body and alumni. 1
One of the troublesome questions'
before the committee is that of booths.
According to the first ruling, no booth
should accommodate more than four
couples, but now they may be made
any size. There will not be roomI
enough in the booths, however, to ac-
commodate the entire crowd, and thei
committee has not yet decided howz
they shall be distributed.
T. D. Weaver, '16E, was elected sec-
retary, and L. M. Bruch, '16L, treasur-i
er, R. C. Jeter, '16E, was elected
chairman by the junior engineer class
before vacation.
"Lew" McAllister, a former Varsityl
baseball coach, has signed a contract
with the Detroit "Tigers" for the 19151
season, in the capacity of coach to thei
recruit pitchers. While the agreement
holds only during the spring training1
season, it is understood that if he gives
satisfaction, he will be retained for
the whole year as a scout.
McAllister coached the Michigan
nines during the years 1905, '06, '08,
'09, and made an enviable record dur-
ing that time. He is the second for-
mer Wolverine coach to sign a con-
tract with an American league club
for 1915, Branch Rickey, who succeed-
ed him, remaining with the St. Louis
Browns for the coming season.
Prof. Gleason Gives Lecture Tonight
Professor H. A. Gleason, of the bot-

any department, will deliver an illus-
trated lecture on "Tropical Forests"
at a Forestry club smoker to be held in
room 407; new engineering building, at
7:30 o'clock tonight. The pictures
were taken in the Philippines and oth-
er southern Pacific islands by Profes-
t sor Gleason, who made a trip around
the world in 1913.

Pred B- Foulk Elected Editor and L.D.
Randall Business Manager
of Publication
Michigan students received their
share of the honors at the eighth an-
nual convention of Cosmopolitan stu-
dent clubs held at Columbus, Ohio, De-
cember 26 to 29. The convention vot-
ed to retain the general offices of the
Cosmopolitan Student in Ann Arbor.
Fred B. Foulk, '13-'16L, was unani-
mously re-elected editor of the Stu-
dent, and Leroy D. Randall, '16, was
unanimously elected business manager
to succeed W. W. Welsh, '12. Staff
members of the official publication re-
ceived warm praise for the quality of
the magazines they have turned out.
Foulk was elected to the central com-
mittee of the International Federation
of students, Corda Fratres.
The Michigan chapter of Corda Fra-
tres had the largest delegation at the
convention, with two faculty members
and four students in attendance. Welsh
was elected field secretary of the Cos-
mopolitan clubs.
The next convention of the Cosmo-.
politan clubs will be held at Cam-
bridge, under the auspices of the Har-
vard chapter, in December, 1915.
Arrange Monster Mass Meeting For
Next Week to Arouse
Captain "Hal" Smith, of the Varsity
track team, issued an official call last
night for all candidates to report at
Waterman gymnasium this afternoon
to begin work for the coming season.
A monster mass meeting e. a ar-
ranged for some evening next week to
arouse enthusiasm among all track
men in the university.
Michigan's prospects in track are
by no means as bright as they might
be this season, but Trainer "Steve"Far-
rell hopes to uncover some unknown
material during the next two months
which will make the Maize and Blue
at least a serious contender in the us-
ual dual meets..
Of the total 29 1-2 points Michigan
scored in the last intercollegiate, the
Wolverines retain just six. Captain
Smith scored a second and a fifth in
the two dashes, and Ferris took a fifth
in the broad jump. Kohler, Bond, Sew-
ard, Jansen, Brown and Armstrong, of
last year's intercollegiate team, are
all lost. The other two men taken to
the big meet, Ufer and Murp#,; are the
most promising of the older men in
addition to Smith and Ferris, but it is
to the sophomore class that Farrell
must look to build up his teaa.
Michigan will be represented 'his
season at the first indoor intercoll; 4
ate track meet at Madison Square Gar-
dens, New York, on March 4. As all

Ask Legislature Today for Funds to

When the state legislature meets
today at Lansing, a resolution will be
submitted asking for adequate funds

mer session was also adopted by the
regents, the following scale to be in
effect for the session of eight weeks:
Instructors, $300; assistant and junior
professors, $400; professors,- $500.
The petition from the student body,
relative to the enlargement of space
and equipment of Waterman gymna-
sium, was referred to the buildings

health service, tendered his resigna-
tion, to take effect last Dec. 31. It
was accepted, and Dr. Joseph Elliott,

The entrance requirements to the
homeopathic college were raised to
two years of college work, thus plac-
ing the homeops on the same entrance

take effect in the fall of 1916.
The American Bible society, through
Librarian Koch, presented the univer-
sity with 105 volumes, representing
translations of the Bible into 83 lan-
guages. Of several of these languages
there have hitherto been no specimens
in the university library.
The regents provided for the remod-
eling of University HEall, so that it may
be used for university theatrical per-
formances, although it was stipulated
that the maximum capacity of the hall
should be 1,500 people. The stage will
be remodeled, and the vacancy left by
the removal of the Columbian organ
will be filled.
The board approved of the purchase
of 576 acres of land adjacent to the
Bogardus Engineering camp, and ly-
ing between Douglas and Burt lakes.
Dr. Hugh M. Beebe was appointed
assistant medical director of the hom-
eopathic hospital. Instructor W. F.
Hauhart, of the engineering depart-
ment, was raised to an assistant pro-
fessorship.- To fill the vacancy caused
by the resignation of J. R. Shulters, of
the French department, H. C. Barnett
