1ele1 Bennett of Chicago Urges Every
Woman to Choose and Train
Definitely for One
President Harry B. lutchins to Preside
at Session Today in Sarah
Caswell Angell Hall
"It is necessary that every woman
choose a profession and train for it
definitely, in addition to the liberal,
arts education she may have," was the
statement that formed the keynote of
the talk given by Helen Bennett, of
the Chicago Collegiate bureau of occu-
pations, at the opening session of the
Vocational, conference yesterday af-.
ternoon. Miss Bennett illustrated her
point of view from her own profession
of journalism, and explained the op-
portunities in that field.
Profesor David Friday, of the eco-
nomics department, followed Miss Ben-
nett, explaining the opportunities for
training in journalism, actuairal sci-
ence, accounting, statistical work and
the like, that are at present offered on
the campus, and advocating their ex-

Take Test on Sentiment
Peace' Contest

Af Campus at

Noiel Scheme Will Have Racers Carry'
Colors of Different
As a result of his recent trip to the
larger colleges of the west, Intramur-
al Director Rowe has secured an idea
for a novel athletic event to be staged
at Michigan. The proposed plan calls
for a "motley" relay race. Teams of
five men each will be selected, and the
men will run one lap, two laps, four
laps, eight laps and a mile, according
to their respective qualifications. The
laps may be run in any order by the
different teams, thus securing the'
"motley" effect.
The most novel part of the affair
will be in the manner of the selection
of teams. According to the scheme
favored by Director Rowe,and which
has proven popular at Illinois and
Wisconsin universities, each team will
run for a sorority. At these schools,
each sorority chooses a fraternity to
represent them in the relay carnival.
Director Rowe expects to modify the
plan here, so that each sorority will
choose a man to represent them, and
this man will choose the other four'
members of his team. In this way it is
hoped to stimulate interest among men
of track ability who ordinarily do not
work out. Members of the Varsity
squad will be ineligible for the com-
petition, but the men who show well
in the "motley" race will be urged to'
report for training.
Although the plan is somewhat in-
definite now, Director Rowe expects to
get in touch with sorority representa-
tives, and explain to them the manner+
in which the event is carried on in
other schools, where it forms one of
the leading athletic attractions of the
year. As soon as the support of the
sororities is assured, definite plans
will be formed.
Prof. GramnRecovering From Operation
In a letter just received by Mr. J. H.
Bringhurst from Prof. L. M. Gram,
who has been recovering from an oper-
ation in Rochester, Minn., the profes-
sor states that he hopes to be able
to start for home this week. Professor
Gram has been ill since last July, and
has undergone several operations in
that time. His life was despaired ofa
several times.7

About 70 rifle enthusiasts turned out
for the meeting of the Rifle club which
was held in room 311 of the new engi-
neering building last night. Intramu-
ral Director Rowe, secretary of the
organization, made a report, and was
followed by Major A. C. Pack of the
Michigan National Guard. Major C. E.
Wilson, who has recently been raised
from the rank of lieutenant, illustrated
the necessity of care' in the use of
guns, with personal experiences. Prof.
R. R. Finch closed the program of the
evenin.; with a talk -on range deport-
In his report, *Secretary Rowe an-
nounced that class teams would be
formed from the men who failed to
make the Varsity ten, which will be a
more or less indefinite team, varying
according to the form in ,which mem-
bers of the club shoot. Eligibility rul-
es simil:: to those applying to Varsity
athletes w .11 be in use, except for the
fact that freshmen will be eligible for
the team.
Seven rifles are now to be had at'
the range and men are asked to turn out
today for the final practice before to-
morrow, when a match will be shot.
Those who report at the Ann Arbor ar-
mory can enter the rifle range by us-
ing the back door, opening on the
north end of the building, as the front
door will be locked.

University women have displayed
a marked interest in the conference,
Sarah Caswell Angell hall having been
completely filled yesterday at the first
meeting, while requests for personal
interviews with the speakers have
been numerous. Arrangements, to be
announced later, are being formulated
to make the results of the conference
permanent through some sort of a
Vocational bureau under the auspices,
of the Women's League.
Prof. David Friday will make ap-
pointments over the telephone with
women who desire conferences on vo-
cational ideas.
For the regular Sunday evening
meeting of the Y. M. C. A. to be held
at the Majestic theater, Dr. Ozora S.
Davis, head of the Chicago Theologi-
cal seminary has been secured as the
speaker. In addition to enjoying an
enviable reputation as an exceedingly
forceful speaker, Dr. Davis has become
well known through his work in the
slums of Chicago. He possesses a rep-1
utat~ion for his prowess in sports of
various kinds. His talk will be pre-
ceded by 'a short program of moving

in official positions in the United States'
who are already advocating similar sys-
tems for this country. The matter has
been attracting attention in several
parts of the country, and many univer-
sities have passed resolutions against
militarism. The last to take this step
was the University of Columbia, which
passed resolutions condemning such a
thorough military system, and which
has requested the University of Mich-
igan to do the same.
It has been thought by those in
charge that the matter should be
brought up while Mr. Albert'G. Bryant,
of Boston, organizing secretary of the
World's Peace Foundation, is the
guest of the university. He will pre-
side at the Peace Contest tonight, and
while the votes are being counted will
address the audience on the subject
of militarism. He is considered an
authority on the subject of interna-
tional relations.
When interviewed on the subject,
several men expressed themselves as
against militarism. Prof. Thomas E..
Trueblood, of the oratory department,
said, "If you arm every man in Ann
Arbor, something is bound to happen.
We in this country certainly do not
want to adopt such an extensive sys-
tem of military preparation."
Preceding the Peace Contest, Mr.
Bryant will be entertained at dinner
by the members of the Cosmopolitan
club,, at Newberry hall.
Tickets for the Peace. Contest will
be on sale at the box office of Univer-
sity hall at 7:00 o'clock. Members of
the Oratorical association will be ad-
mitted on the season tickets, and oth-
ers may be admitted for 25 cents. Sea-
son tickets for the remainder of the
course will also be on sale.

You May Not
Believe It, But---
CHICAGO, ILL.-Just as a sort of
midweek pastime, Clara Pause, a
freshman at the University of Illinois,
swam around among the cakes of ice
in Lake Michigan on Christmas morn-
ing. Declaring to the crowd of shiver-
ing onlookers at Wilson Beach that
the "water was fine," she imitated Eli-
za, mounting cakes of ice and jump-
ing from one to another. While doc-
tors and undertakers watched from
the depths of their heavy coats, the
hardy swimmer remained in the water
for several minutes.
At the close of her mild sport the
young lady departed leisurely for the'
bathhouse, and today shows a few
scratches as the only ill effects of her
swim. Miss Pause swam daily up to1
December 19 last 'year, and regrets
that her attendance at the university,
prevents her from indulging in daily
"dips" this year.

Intramural Competition Developed By
Director Rowe Is Superior
of Any College Ii
Reports Scheme in Vogue Here Offers
Opportunity to Most
Michigan has the best system of in-
tramural athletics in the country, ac-
cording to Director Floyd A. Rowe,
who recently returned from a two
weeks' tour of the larger colleges of
the west. Last season Director Rowe
made a similar trip to the leading uni-
versities of the east, and found that
Michigan was ahead of any university
in the number of men taking part in
athletics, the number of sports offered
and the general results.
On his recent trip, Director Rowe
visited Chicago, Wisconsin, Northwest-
egn, Indiana, Iowa, Illinois, Iowa State,
Purdue and Missouri, the list includ-
ing all of the conference colleges ex-
cept Minnesota. Of this number, only
three had half the number of men en-
gaged in actual competition that Mich-
igan boasts. Illinois, Wisconsin and
Ohio State all claim nearly 1,000 stu-
dents competing in the interclass
sports. The total at Michigan last year
was 2,058, including duplications, or
in the neighborhood of 1,500 individual
In the number of sports offered for
competition,'Michigan is far in advance
of any of the other western colleges,
with a total of 13. Illinois and Wis-
consin offer six; Ohio State, five; Iowa
and Northwestern, four; Chicago,
three and Purdue, two. Minnesota and
Indiana have made practically no prog-
ress in the development of an inter-
class system.
In addition to offering more sports
than other colleges, Michigan generally
has 15 or 20 class teams enrolled, in
the major sports, while only five or
six teams compete at the other insti-
Michigan is the only college in the
country which eniploys a director for
class athletics alone. This year Di-
rector Rowe had two paid assistants,
and next year plans to have five.
As a result of his trip, Director
Rowe secured several ideas for enlarg-
ing the intramural system at Michigan.
The main obstacle to further advance-
ment is the inadequate gymnasium.
Waterman gym is inferior to the in-
door plants of any of the large uni-
versities of the country, and is a for-
midable handicap in the development
of any aquatic sport and of most
of the indoor sports.
Must Present Well Organized Brief
and May Talk Only Eight
Preliminary tryouts for the mid-west
debating team will be held at 9:00
o'clock tomorrow morning in Univer-
sity hall, room 301, north wing. The
squad will tryout under the new sys-
tem, which will be used then for the
first time.
The 'men must present a well or-
ganized brief on either side of the

question and will be ' allowed eight
minutes to deliver their argument. For
the present, candidates will speak al-
phabetically before the committee pri-
vately. Six speakers will be elimin-
ated in this first tryout.
The question to be debated reads
as follows: "Resolved, that in anti-
trust legislation, labor unions should
be exempt from construction as com-
binations in restraint of trade, consti-
tutionality waived."
Bridge players in the Union tourna-
ment will assemble at 7:00 o'clock to-
night for the second round of play.

Mary Bancroft Makes Serious Charges
Concerning Her Treatment
in Hospital
Suit for $30,000 was instituted Tues-
day morning in the circuit court by
Mary Bancroft, formerly of the nurses'
training school, against the board of
regents of the university and Genevieve
Read, superintendent of the nurses at
the homeopathic hospital.
It is alleged by Miss Bancroft that,
due to infection contracted in washing
a diseased child during her attendance
at the hospital, she was forced to spend
two months in a Detroit hospital,
where her left arm was operated upon.
Miss Read failed, she says, to instruct
her to wear rubber gloves during the
washing. Other charges of a serious
nature are enumerated in the com-
