Early Games Automatically Move
Along OneWeek From Last
Season
Michigan will probably play but
eight football games next fall, owing
to the fact that the university does
not open until a week later than last
fall. As usual, the Cornell and Penn-
sylvania games will come the first two
Saturdays in November, and there are
only four Saturdays in October after
the opening of college on Tuesday,
Oct. 5.
Last fall classes began on Tuesday,
Sept. 29, and the football season open-
ed the next day with the De Pauw
game. There were five Saturdays in
October, the two ;usual November
games, and two mid-week practice
scraps. Although no official announce-
ment has yet been made in regard to
the 1915 schedule, it seems likely that
there will be two big November games,
four Saturday October contests, and
two matinee tilts on early Wednesday
dates.
The mysterious "open date" on the
Maize and Blue battle list, therefore,
is a myth. The early games will be
automatically shoved along, no doubt,
and the Yostmen will have one less
early game in preparation for the ma-
$or contests with the east.
As near as can be guessed, the Wol-
verine dates will be as follows, plus
two Wednesday games:-
Oct. 9-Case.
Oct. 16-Mount Union.
Oct. 23-M. A. C.
Oct. 30-Syracuse.
Nov. 6-Cornell.
Nov. 13--Pennsy at Philadelphia.-
HEALTH OFFICIALS CONFIDENT1
OF CHECK IN SMALLPOX SCARE
Remove Quarantine on Hospital
Wards; 50 Students Given
Vaecine Yesterday
Health service officials expressed
themselves yesterday aJconfident that
the epidemic of smallpox has passed
its crisis. No new cases have been
reported since Monday, and with the
vaccination of all those who were in
contact with Howard Gray, '17A, be-
sides numerous other students, they
believe that the danger of an epidemic
of the disease has been reduced to a
minimum. More than 50 were given
the vaccine yesterday as a further pre-
ventive of a spread of the infection.
The quarantine on the wards of the
university hospital, where the patients
suffering from smallpox are confined,
was- removed yesterday. Authorities
at the hospital said last night that
Gray's condition was improving dai-
'y. H roommate, A. K. MacNaugh-
ton, '16E, will be discharged, as he
has shown no symptoms of the mal-
ady.
City health officials, acting under
Dr. i. A. Wessinger, city health offi-
cer, have taken precautions to prevent
a spread of the disease, by fumigating
all places where Gray is known to
have been, and by advising a general
vaccination of all persons in Ann Ar-
bor.
ENGINEERING SOCIETY GREETS
IMPENDING HORRORS IN DANCE
With the paradoxical motto, "Mora-
turi salutamus," the Engineering so-
ciety will endeavor to drive away pre-
examination cares at the dance to be
given in Barbour gym next Thursday.
Many features have been planned
by the committee in charge, consisting
of Don Smith, '16E, Howard Enos,'1E,
Russell Mills, '15E, Allen Ricketts,

'15E, and John Naylon, '15E. The
Mandolin quartette will play special
music for the occasion, while Herbert
Bartholf, '16E, and L. E. Hughes, '16E,
will show the new steps of modern
dances.
An eight piece orchestra will fur-
nish the music. Tickets are on sale
by the committee for 50 cents to the
society members, and 75 cents to oth-
ers. The chaperons for the affair
will be announced later.

TOMORROW
Meeting of the Catholic students' club
at 8:00 o'clock in St. Thomas hall.
OPERA COMMITTEE
ALTERS PERSONNEL
Francis Mack, '16E, Replaces Richard
Thorseb, '16, as Assistant
to Chairman
CHORUS MEN TRYOUT TUESDAY
Francis -Mack, '16E, has been ap-
pointed an assistant to the general
chairman of the 1915 Opera, to fill the
vacancy caused by the resignation of
Richard Thorsch, '16. Harry Frank,
'16L, will fill the place formerly held
by Mack, on the costumes committee.
With these changes the personnel of
of the committee is now complete, but
for the assistants to the treasurer, who
will be chosen from the sophomore
class.
Tryouts for the chorus, as previous-
ly announced, will take place Tues-
day night at 7:00 o'clock, in the large
room at the Union. The emphasis at
this time will be placed on dancing, as
judged from the execution of the mod-
ern steps.bMoreu;men will be chosen
than will be required. L. E. Hughes,
'16E, dancing director of the produc-
tion, will be on hand to take either
the man's or woman's part, with those
who are unable to secure partners.
Posters will be judged, today, and
the drawings which secure the first
places, will be put on exhibition in
the window of a State street store, be-
fore they are sent to the engravers.
The lyrics are now being rearrang-
ed by the author and will be sent to
the music publishers in the 'near fu-
ture. After the trials Tuesday night,
activity in preparing the show for
production will cease until after ex-
aminations.

into a Venetian garden scene, accord- I upon and election of new officers were

ing to the plan of decoration which
will be submitted to the hop commit-
tee today or tomorrow by the Hunt-
inghouse Cotillion company of Chica-
go, with whom the contract has been
let.
The decorations this year, it is un-
derstood, will be the most costly and
elaborate which'have ever been used
for this function. The booths will im-
itate miniature pagodas. Two million
feet of festooning will be used, and
artificial flowers and vines will be in-
tertwined with many colored lights.
About two weeks before the hop, a
number of carpenters and decorators
will arrive here from Chicago to carry
out the plans.
Music for the dance has not been se-
lected yet, but the committee has ask-
ed the Varsity band and Finzel's or-
chestra to submit lists of pieces from
which to select. No spotlight dances
will be held, although several schemes
for feature dances are being consider-
ed. There will be four favors for
each person, which will be given out
during the cotillion.
An agreement has been reached
with the local taxicab companies un-
der which no price higher than $2.00
will be charged on this night. As it is
expected there will be some delay in
securing service at this time, the first
few dances of the evening will be pre-,
liminary, and not on the program,
No decisive action was taken at the
meeting of managers of fraternities
and house clubs yesterday afternoon,
except that it was suggested that they
should not give flowers. The matter
of favors will probably be decided in-
dependently by each organization.
This committee has no power to legis-
late and can only suggest. No action
was taken by the interfraternity con-
ference, but the general sentiment to
cooperate with the hop committee in
every way possible prevailed.
Tickets for chaperons without es-
corts are to -cost $2.00. Sales at the
Union today amounted to 33 tickets,
while about 100 had been sold previ-
ous to this time. In order to secure a
booth, the party applying must have
control of 12 tickets, since the booths
will accommodate this number of
couples, unless the plans of the dec-
orators have been changed. Sales of
booths starts January 25, at 25 cents
per couple.
A smoker for all interested in the
hop, where those intending to attend
may become acquainted and start their
programs, has been arranged by the
committee to take place at 7:3 o'clock
next Thursday, at the Union.
ATTENDANCE AT RIFLE -RANGE
FALLS IN PRACTICE SHOOTS
Officials Fear Best Men Will Not Be
Selected For Varsity
Team
With a roll call of 90 in the Michigan
Rifle club only about 25 or 30 men are
turning out each afternoon to
take the regular practice, in training
for the Saturday afternoon tryouts.
The men who turn out are usually the
same 25 or 30, while some of the mem-
bers of the organization have not as
yet reported at the Ann Arbor armory
for any work.
Michigan's fi r s t intercollegiate
match is scheduled for Jan. 28, and
ten men will be picked to sloot in the
first match. Unless every ian turns
out for the trials, and for the practice
afternoons there is a possibility that
the ten best men will not ?epresent
Michigan when the match is shot.
"The only way to insure a fair
chance for each individual, and for the
team is to have every member of the
Rifle club appear for practice regular-

ly, and hand in his targets so the offi-
cials can judge the ranking of the
men," said H. A. Moul, eng. spec., pres-
ident of the club yesterday.

part of the business carried through
at a meeting of the Michigan Union
Boat club at the Union last night.
Student surveyors are being sign-
ed up to map out the proposed race
course on Argo pond sometime this
week, while the ice is still strong on
the river. The course which is slight-
ly curved and about one and seven-
eighths miles long, is declared by men
formerly connected with eastern crews
to be the best in the country.
Cooperation of the Detroit Boat
club has been secured through the aid
of Grover Farnsworth, of Detroit, who
was in Ann Arbor to look over the
situation last week. Money is being.
raised among the 2,000 alumni in and
about Detroit, for the establishment of
shell racing at the university, and two
excellent eight-oared shells have been
promised by parties in Detroit.
Intramural Director Floyd Rowe is
working on a campus championship
plan whereby the crew of the winning
class would receive numerals. Match-
es are promised by the Detroit Boat
club, and, according to plans, a boat
house will be constructed by students9
before the spring regatta. The East-~
ern Michigan Edison company has
promised a site and $1,000, and a De-
troit firm is being solicited to furnish
lumber. In a few years a Varsity
crew, capable of strong eastern compe-
tition, is in sight.
W. W. Watson, '16E, was elected,
vice-commodore of the club in the,
place of Earl B. McKinley, '16, who isj
now commodore. H. H. Phillips, '16E,
was chosen treasurer to fill the place
vacated by Harry G. Gault, '15, and,
W. B. Palmer, '15, is now second en-s
sign. The newly appointed commo-
dore's committee are H. S. Parsons,
'15E, H. G. Gault, '15, P. D. Koontz,
'17L, S. S. Dickinson, '15L, Prof. H. C.
Sadler, and Director Floyd Rowe.
CHICAGO ARTISTS EXHIBIT WORK

many misfortunes and hardships, but
he is now rated as one of the best land-
scape painters in the country. Miss
Adam Emory Albright has contributed
"The Enchanted fHour," which took
first prize at the recent Chicago ex-
hibit.
Simply entitled "A Portrait," the
painting by Elizabeth K. Peyraud has

ANNOUNCES ASSEMBLIES

Strong dissension over the appoint-
ment of a committee for the installa-
tion of an assembly and the alleged
arbitrary method of Pres. M.S.Colleton
in running the class, nearly precipitated
a hand to hand fight at the meeting of
the fresh lit class in the economics
building yesterday afternoon. After
considerable discussion, the appoint-
ment of the committee was left to the
president and the question of conduct-
ing the class was laid over to the next.
meeting.
In a short talk on college spirit,
Dean John R. Effinger told the class
that freshman assemblies for the liter-
ary department, similar to those in
the engineering department would
soon'be established. The class voted
to support the assemblies. A motion
to adopt a class yell was defeated.
It was further decided to have a social
program at each meeting. Besides
Dean Effinger's talk, yesterday's pro-
gram consisted of a skit and a song
by Z. E. Lamb, '18, and a gypsy im-
personation and feature dance by
Rowena Bastian, '18.
