Meeting in Chicago Considers Closer
Relations Between Church and "Y"
At a meeting of the association of
Student Pastors of state universities
held in Chicago during this past week,
steps were taken toward the securing'
of a basis of cooperation between
church workers and Y. M. C. A. sec-
retaries in college towns that will
probably revolutionize all the methods
of Christian work, which have been
engaged in by these two sources dur-
ing the past few years.
The meeting, which was also attend-
ed by representatives of the various
educational boards of the main Christ-
ian denominations in this country, re-1
sulted in the appointment of a com-
mittee with John R. Mott, head of the
International Students' Christian asso-
ciation as chairman and representa-
tives from the various church boards1
as associate members. The work of
this committee, which will probably
meet sometime within the next few
months, will be to work out a satis-1
factory basis of cooperation, and pre-i
sent the result of its findings at a;
special meeting to be called some time1
next summer.:

Bishop Charles D. Williams, of De-
troit, will address members of the
Union at 3:00 o'clock this afternoon

Bishop Williams is one of the lead-
ing social and religious workers of the

are said to be among the best written.

a leading figure in social reform move-
In addition to the address by Bishop
Williams, the Ukulele quartet will
render a number of Hawaiian selec-
tions, and Hugo Johnson, '18, accom-
panied on the piand by R. G. Day, '17E,
will sing several numbers. Inasmuch
as this is the last Sunday meeting un-
til after examinations, a large attend-
ance is looked for.
Jewell Winner in Opera Poster Contest
John B. Jewell, '15A, is winner of
the contest for the design for the
Michigan Union opera poster. Lamar
M. Kishlar, '17E, won a close second
place, and Edward McGuire was
awarded the third prize. The post-
ers will be put on exhibition in some
State street display window, and the
winning design will appear on the reg-
ular advertisements, the programs,
and the music scores.
Students' Hospital Work Commended
.Deep appreciation was expressed by
he hospital circle of King's Daughters,
in a letter to The Daily, of the assist-
ance given by the many individual
students and organizations, for the
generosity which was bestowed by
them upon the patients in the univer-
sity hospital.

Athletic regulations must be obeyed.
Such is the ultimatum which has gone
forth from the athletic officials, and it
is evident that there is to be a deter-
mined effort made to stamp out the
competition -in independent ball by
Varsity athletes, and the playing of
unauthorized games by other students
about the state.
At a meeting of the hoard in control
December 9, 1912, the matter first
came up as a serious problem, and the
abuses of that time were referred to
the respective faculties. The athletic
rules covering the matter were given
publicity, and, at the request of Ath-
letic Director P. G. Bartelme,- they
are again published at this time, as
Any student of the University of
Michigan engaging in any of the rec-
ognized intercollegiate sports during
term time except on teams authorized
by the board in control of athletics
of the University of Michigan, does
thereby become ineligible for all time
for either the Varsity or All-Fresh-
man teams of the University in each'
and every one of the recognized inter-
collegiate sports..
Any student of the University of

Permission to engage during vaca:.

given by the chairman of the board
in control of athletics of the Univer-
sity of Michigan on condition that the
applicant for such permission offers
satisfactory evidence that he is a per-

towns supporting the team of which he]
desires to become a member, and then
only providing that he offers satisfac-
tory assurance and evidence that in no

tion on said team or teams.

Athletic Director Bartelme, in dis-
cussing the matter yesterday gave out
the following interview:
"The attention given the character
of the competition in the actual cases
in 1912 was not a passing whim of the
athletic authorities. The practice of
indiscriminate athletic competitio: by
university students is vicious in its'
(Continued on Page 8).

Any doubt as to what is the major
sport at Michigan was dispelled yes-
terday, when the treasurer of the ath-
letic association gave his report for
the year, at the annual meeting of the
association. The income from foot-
ball was greater during the past year
than the income from all other sourc-
es, while the expenditure for the same
sport was one-third of the total ex-
pense account.
The report stated that football
was the only sport which showed a
credit balance, all other sports run-
ning behind financially.
Football showed receipts of $80,311.-
64, while disbursements were $50,326.-
88. Baseball, with an income of $5,-.
248.00, and an expense account of
$7,970.36, ran more than $2,700 behind.'
Track lost even more financially, hav-
ing receipts of $1,395.48, and expendi-
tures of $5,407.49. Tennis had re-
ceipts of $269.00, and showed $305.18
paid out.
The intramural department cost
$4,777.74 for upkeep, while the in-
come was comparatively small, being
only $458.40. Interscholastic receipts
were $99.50, and expenses $382.72.
The largest source of income, next
to football, was from the student fees.
These netted $25,430.70. The generall
athletic expense account was $7,203.99.
A total of $4,314.30 was spent on Ferry
field, and $784.89 on south Ferry field.
The new stadium involved an ex-I
penditure of $75,975.00, of which $32,-
000.00 was procured on loans. This
year's balance on hand is $210.28, as
compared with $11,813.17 on January
17, 1914.
The report of the treasurer was the
only business undertaken at the meet-
ing, at which only two students, be-
sides newspaper reporters and fourE
of the six student memberseof the
board of directors were in attendance.1

the time.
Professor Knowlton has given the
lecture many times in Ann Arbor, and
elsewhere for the university exten-
sion service, and it has been popular
to a high degree. The Majestic will
open at 6:10 o'clock, when moving pic-
tures will be shown.
Professor Talks at Methodist Church
on "Strategy of Cross".
Prof. Lynn H. Hough, of Garrett
Biblical institute of Evanston, Illinois,
will speak at the Methodist church.
at 7:30 o'clock tonight on "The Strat-
egy of the Cross." His lecture is one
of the Wesleyan Guild series.
Professor Hough won a high repu-
tation in the east as a preacher, be-
fore he took up his professiorial work
in Evanston. 1-Te left this charge at
the call of Northwestern's Bible in-
stitute, and, since then, has become
known as a leader of religious thought
in the middle west.

Exhibits Phenomenal Skill, Going Over
lBar at 12 Feet With Room
to spare
By clearing the bar at an even 12
feet yesterday after.:oon. "Bo" Wilson
proved almost conclusively that he
should develop into the greatest pole
vaulter that Michigan has ever seen:
Wilson has been exhibiting phenom-
enal form all winter, although Coach
Farrell, of the varsity squad, has held
the sophomore in check. During the
past week Wilson has been doing over
11 feet consistently and apparently
with ease. The present gym record is
11 feet 3 inches, and "Bo" has cleared
hig :. than this repeatedly. How-
ever, due to the fact that it is so zarly
in the season, Coach Farrell has lim-
ited Wilson's efforts. Yesterday af-
ternoon Steve relented a trifle, and the
bar was placed at 12 feet. On his first
two efforts, the barrier was just dis-
lodged, but on the third trial "Bo"
cleared it with room to si.are.
Wilson has not been spending much
time in the gym the past twro weeks,
and his showing is decidc .ly out of
the ordinary. "Bo" was ineligible all
last year for freshmen track work, be-
cause of scholastic difficulties. It is
because of this that he has been slight-
ing track work to insure receiving fac-
ulty approbation for this year. Wil-
son's vaulting will prove of big as-
sistance this year to the track team,
and by the time the eastern 4ntercol-
legiates come, Michigan should be rep-
resented by far and away, the best
pole vaulter that has ever been in the
The loss of Quail, due to his leaving
college means the departure of one of
the best hammer throwers connected
with the squad. Quail is leaving for
the west and will not be in college
next semester. Several candidates for
the weights are left however, and
Trainer Farrell hopes to fnd someone
capable of filling the shoes of last1
year's captain.

Although 200 less votes were cast
yesterday than at the athletic associa-
tion election last year, the contest for
nearly every office was close. A total
of 699 votes was cast, while the larg-
est plurality was received by F. G.

scholastic manager with 272 votes to

candidates for this position.
