Ann Arbor saw the close of one of
the most successful annual meetings
of the Michigan Engineering society
yesterday. In respect to both attend-
ance and work accomplished, the con-
vention ranked among the best on the
records of the society.
The last formal meeting of the soci-
ety was held yesterday morning. What
proved to be the best paper of the ses-
sions, was delivered by L. G. Carpen-
ter, of Denver, Colorado. Mr. Carpen-
ter, who is regarded as one of the men
best acquainted with the legal side of
engineering in this country, spoke op,
"Interstate Water Questions."
Through the courtesy of the Eastern
Michigan Edison company, the engi-
neers were taken on a trip of inspec-
tion yesterday afternoon. Among the
points inspected were the Barton and
Argo dams and power houses, and the
university sanitary experiment station.
No decision was reached as to the
next meeting place of the society, De-
troit and Grand Rapids seeking to en-
tertain the engineers.
Several boxes of books, which are
the exchanges between the Michigan
society and those of other states, have
been left for students in the corridor
of the third floor of the new engineer-
ing building. Those who desire the
books may have them, as long as they

CRACK QUAKER RUNNER RULED
INELIGIBLE FOR COMPETITION
"Ted" Meredith, the Quaker's sen-
sational middle distance runner, has
been declared ineligible for college
competition, and will probably be un-
able to compete against Michigan in
the relay race at Buffalo, February 5.
Meredith ran under the colors of an
independent club during the last col-
lege term, thus rendering himself in-
eligible to compete with the Pennsyl-
vania track team for the remainder
of the year. His loss will be a severe
blow to the Quakers, for the presence
of the Olympic star would have given
them the shade over the Wolverine
Play in Bridge Tournament Postponed
Contestants in the Union bridge
tournament will hold no pre-exam
round, but will resume play on the
first Friday after the hop. X R. Mc-
Call, '16L, who is at the head of the
tourney, will permit- a few more en-
tries, and will give the new men op-
portunity to make up for the three
rounds already finished.
Radical changes in the titles of the
various divisions of the University of
Michigan were made yesterday by the
board of regents, in an enactment des-
ignating the style to be used by the
university publications hereafter.
The literary department has been
changed to the college of literature,
science and the arts; the engineering
department, to the college of engineer-
ing; the pharmacy .department, to the
college of pharmacy; the dental, to the
college of dental surgery. The medical,
homeopath, law and graduate depart-
ments will be known as the schools
of medicine, homeopathy, law and the
graduate school respectively.
This change is brought about in or-
der to standardize the nomenclature,
in accordance with the last annual re-
port of the Carnegie foundation for
the advancement of education.
Rifle Team holds Final Tryouts Today

of its kind ever held 'in this state.
Coaches Upton, Mitchel, Holloway and
Gudelsky, will be on hand with their
respective teams, while many business
men have already signified their in-
tention of attending the affair.
Members of the alumni association
hope that the banquet will draw the
schools in the western part of the state
into a closer and more friendly re-
lation than has.existed during the past
few years. The banquet will be held
in the rooms of the Peninsular club,
and is being financed entirely by the
Western Michigan alumni association,
which has its headquarters in Grand
School Course Open to All Students

administration is not confined to those
expecting to teach. The course, which
will be started next semester, is in-
tended for all students interested in
school work of any kind, and especial-
ly for those who intend entering pub-
Members of the Junior hop commit-
tee were gratified by the fact that
more than 90 men turned out last night
to attend the acquaintanceship smok-
er which they had arranged. After
speeches by several members of the
general committee, those present met
one another and exchanged dances.
Seven groups to secure booths were
formed, each consisting of 12 men.
Besides taking booths, they will pro-
vide their own entertainments for the
Saturday following the hop.
R. C. Jeter, '16E, explained that the
committee had to do with $1250 less
than had been given to their predeces-
sors. The reduction in -the admission
price from $7.00 to $5.00 accounts for
$600. The revenue from spectators
netted $250 in the past. Fraternities
have paid to former committees $400
toward the decorations of their booths,
which used to be done in individual
Chairman Jeter also announced that
Dean Myra B. Jordan had informed
him that she would secure rooms for
