Leaders Hope to Duplicate
"Effective social service involves a
knowledge of the new social relation-
ships and the exercise of new forms of
hospitality and kindness, which may
be less glowing and satisfactory than
the old kinds, but which are now rec-
ognized as essential. Social service is
a definite and new kind of profession,
with a definite and new kind of tech-
nique." This was the thought devel-
oped in the talk on social service giv-
en by Sophonisba Breckenridge, dean
of the Chicago School of Civics and
Philanthropy, at the final session of
the Vocational conference yesterday
morning., Miss Breckenridge outlined
methods in the theory and practice of
social service pursued in the institu-
tion she represents.
Abby Marlatt, director of the home
economics department of the Univer-
sity of Wisconsin, said, in speaking on
the opportunities in this field open to
college women, that the economy of
the home is a thing fundamental in
the life of the nation, and a problem
that must be recognized and met in
the new ideal of collegiate education
for women. Miss Marlatt explained
the openings in the fields of business
administration, and the professions for
which the knowledge of home econom-
ics is essential.
Miss Maude Kelsey, national field
secretary of the Student Volunter band
of the Y. W. C. A., spoke on the new
scope of the Y. W. C. A. activity in the
work of social service, and outlined
the opportunities there. Catherine
Reighard, '15, president of the Wom-1
en's League, presided at this meeting.
She expressed hopes that other confer-
ences of a like nature will follow in'the

en, which closed the conference.
The national civil service comnis-
sion, though unable to send a speaker,7

that field, which will be placed, with
the material on. other vocations and

"Pomander Walk" will go on the
boards during Junior hop week, if the
efforts of the management in this di-
rection are successful, according to
Pres. Louis K. Freidman, '15, of the

strenuous attempt to offset the late

obtaning producing' rights from the
owners, but no decision as to the date
of production will be made. until there
are further developments.
Arrangements are practically com-
pleted with Sanger and Jordan Com-
pany, of New York, to lease, the scen-
ery used by the original "Pomander

from the illustrations which appear in
the manuscript of the play, are being
specially made by a Detroit firm.

1910 FOOTBALL SQUAD LOSES
SERVICES OF STAR HALFBACK
Martin Galt Leaves College. to Enter
Business at Portland, But
"Mart" Galt, star half on the 1913
Varsity, has left the university to enter
business in Portland, Oregon, and,
while there is a bare possibility of his
return in time to play next fall, it is
more than probable that the 1915
eleven will lose the services of the
veteran half. According to members
of his family, however, there is no pos-
sibility of his return to Michigan.
Galt's loss will be keenly .felt this
fall, for the Ann Arbor veteran was a
star of whom much wes expected in
1915. After starring on the 1913 Var-
sity, Galt was expected to be the main-
stay of the team last fall. Injuries
kept him out of every game, however,
but it was hoped that he would be in
shape to come back in the coming sea-

'MEET TO HEIGHTEN
Past and Present Stars Will Address
Big Athletic Gathering
REAL GRIND BEGIN, TOMORROW
With track work well under way,
a meeting has been planned for 7:15E
o'clock Tuesday night in the lecture
room of the physics building, for the
purpose of arousing more enthusiasm
among the men, and to bring o.ut a
larger number of candidates. Track
Manager W. B. Palmer will preside.
Realizing that the turnout.for track
work at' Michigan is far below what
it is proportionately in other schools,
the meeting has been arranged to
arouse, greater interest among those
now out and any new men that may
be present. Coach Farrell and Cap-
tain Smith will speak for those active-
ly engaged in track work. "Hap" Haff
has also been placed on the program
and "Chink" Bond, last year's inter-
collegiate 100-yard champion, has
promised to come out from Detroit to
address the gathering. Athletic Di-
rector Bartelme, and Intramural Di-
rector Rowe will also speak.f
Beginning Monday, the fastest times
and best records made in the different
events in the gym will be posted, so
that the men can see exactly where1
they stand. This plan was followed
out last year with considerable suc-
cess, and is to be repeated.
According to present plans, Coach7
Farrell has announced that the real
grind would commence tomorrow.
This past week has served as more or
less of a limbering up period, follow-1
ing the rest during the holidays.
Although the track schedule has not
been announced as yet, both indoora
and outdoor dates will be made pub-E
lic within a few days. More than 500
letters were mailed yesterday to track
men in college who are expected to
turn out at Tuesday's meeting. Captain1
Smith has stated however, that anyone I
interested will be welcome.1
