Independent Athletes Goes
On in Spite of Athletic

Games Down Town Against
asketball competition by class

;ite the edict of the athletic author-
s. The senior lit five, which won
campus title last year, is the lat-
to jeopardize its standing.
he students have discovered that
rule on grounds, under the mis-
aneous regulations of the athletic
ciation, has a phrase, "intercolle-
e sports," in forbidding such out-
competition. Since basketball is
recognized as an intercollegiate
't at Michigan, the class teams
e continued their competition with
teams, firm in the belief that this
-hole would save them until the
'd in control changed the rule.
There are two other rules, how-
which the student strategists

s, contests with high schools are
idden without specific permission

Will Leave Next Week to Take Charge
of Bequest of Late Thomas

Prof. F. W. Kelsey, of the Latin de-
partment, will sail from Boston next
week, for Italy, to supervise the divis-
ion of the library of the late Thomas
Spencer Jerome, '84, part of which
was willed to the University.
The executors of the estate have re-
quested Professor Kelsey to secure a
manuscript, upon which Mr. Jerome
had worked many years before his
death. He will bring it, with several
otliers of less importance, to this coun-
try, where they can be put into final
form for the printer.

Combined Clubs' Management to Scour
Fraternities in Seat Sale
Spurred on by the prospect of per-
forming before an audience composed
mainly of J-Hop participants, the man-
agement of the Michigan Glee and
Mandolin club is working overtime to
insure a creditable showing at the
last home concert, to be presented at
4:00 o'clock Friday afternoon, Febru-
ary 5, in Sarah Caswell Angell hall.
In view of the coming examinations,
the major portion of the work of re-
hearsing and selection of the program
is already completed.
Inside of a few days, the manage-
ment will have made the rounds of the
fraternity houses, in an effort to se-
cure reservations for the concert.
Those giving house parties and who
wish. seats, will be given them in a
block. A representative of the club
will also be at the Union from 7:00
o'clock to 9:00 o'clock Monday night,"
in the same room in which reserva-
tions of booth space for the hop are
to be secured.
Arrangements are nearly completed
whereby the club will go to Pontiac at
some time in the first week of March,
for its first out-of-town concert since
the holiday trip. The Pontiac men in-
terested have made the necessary pro-
visions at their end of the line, and it:
only remains for the faculty. to put its
stamp of approval upon the trip. Other
out-of-town appearances are being ne-
gotiated, but at the present time no
definite word can be given out on the

Aim to Make Rowing
in Interelass and

Work at marking the course for the
proposed Varsity crew will be carried
on during the first part of next week,
by members of the Michigan Union
Boat club, who layed out about one
half of the stretch last Saturday.
The men will drive the 14 loot poles,
of a yellow color, with blue "taps"
painted near the top, through the ice
of the pond, and will deposit land
marks on th shore opposite each.
Buoys are to be anchored where the
markers are being pounded in, as soon
as the river is free from ice.
Those who worked last week, and
who for the most part, will help Mon-
day are: Walter W. Watson, '16E,
who has just been appointed general
chairman of the river project; I low-
ard H. Phillips, '16, treasurer of the
club; Louis B. Hyde, '16E; W. Lee
'Watson, '17E; Kemp S. Burge, '17;
Raymond M. Langly, '18E; Gordon B.
Pearson, '18; Hoyne Howe, 118E; Er-
nest L. Zeigler, '18; Ezra W. Lock-
wood, '18; and Langford W. Wilson,
Three eight-oared shells can row
abreast on the proposed water track,
thus making competition possible for
a local crew and two other eights. The
engineering students who are manag-
ing the work, are laying out the regu-
lar English Henley course, of about
one mill and 500 yards, which is now
becoming standard in college rowing.
There is only one slight curve of 1,500,
feet, near .the center of the run, but'
this does not interrupt a clear view1

Venetian Fairyland Being Arranged,
for Supplanting Flags, Bunting
and Decorations

Plans for the interclass basketball
players are already being laid by In-
trainural Director Floyd A. Rowe, who
has looked ahead to the second semes-
ter and the annual intramural basket-
ball league with the idea of giving it
an early start, and of drawing a larger
number of men than ever before into
the sport. With this idea in mind, he
has planned a meeting of all men in-
terested in baisketball, for some time
during the second of the twvo weeks
devoted to examinations.

Coiimmittees Hasten Final Preparations
Before Examinations, for
Hop Parties
"Decorations for the Junior hop will
be unique and different in every way
from those of former years," said T.
D. Weaver, '16E, chairman of the deco-
rations committee. "The old scheme
of bunting and flags will be entirely
done away with, and the Italian gar-
den will be a real novelty in the his-
tory of such functions at Michigan,"
he continued.
From the running track, extensions
will be made; over which vines of leav-
es and flowers will be strewn, so as to
give a pergola effect. Lattice work
will divide the booths from one anoth-
er, and in their construction, a million
linear feet of lumber will be used, ac-
cording to the estimates of the deco-
The lights suspended from the ceil-
ing of the gymnasium, and those in
the individual booths will be conceal-
ed in bunches of flowers, so that the
illumination will not be glaring.
Weaver said that the cotillion, which
is also being planned by the decorat-
ors, would lend a spirit of gayety and
informality to the occasion. He pre-
dicted that it would wind up the af-

Squad to Leave Ann Arbor Feb. 4 for
Competition 'With Penn
Distance Men
Just who will represent Michigan at
the Penn relays, which are to be held
in Buffalo, on February 5 and 6, is as
much a mystery as ever, according to
Coach Farrell.
The only event in which the compe-
tition even narrows down to two men,
is the dash. The selection here rests
between Captain Smith and O'Brien.
The tryouts will be held some time
next week.
The three most prominent candi-
dates for the quarter mile are Burby,
Fontana and Carver, with a possibility
of Murphy's running this distance.
Fontana, O'Brien's running mate in
the dashes on last year's yearling
squad, has been shifted to this event
temporarily, and, according to the
track coach, has an excellent chance
of pulling .down the berth. Burby's
mark of 1:05 1-5 for four laps, has
been beaten by a fifth of a second by
both Fontana and Murphy.
The squad going to Buffalo, will,
leave Ann Arbor February 4, and will
return the following Sunday.

Intramural Director Rowe, is work-
(Continued on page 4.)

Arthur Davin, ex-'13, and F. W. Zinn,
'14E, have written to friends in this
city, describing their experience, the
former as a member of the Canadian
Y. M. C. A. corps, now located at Sal-
isbury, England, the latter, from the
French trenches.
Davin's departure from Canada is
realistically portrayed:
"After a few weeks of drill, ending
in three days in which we could have
marched away at ten minutes notice,
(for we packed our kits after each
meal), we arose one morning, ate and
at last heard the bugle call; 'Fall in A,
fall in B, fall in every companee,' and
we boarded the train again. From train
to ship, (the Cunarder 'Andania'), was
half an hour's work. As soon as the
good ship was loaded, communication1
with land was effectively cut off, by.
her anchoring in midstream. For three
days we lay there, speculating on thei
mysterious movements of various lin-
ers, but one morning we found that
Quebec was far behind and getting
more so every minute. Next morning
we saw a remarkable sight. In a se-'
cluded bay, just north of Jaspe Bay in
the gulf, were 32 ocean liners and two
cruisers. We lay there three days,"
but were lucky enough to be there1
when the liners slipped away.";

Regarding the situation in England,
he writes:
"Just at present, the country is
stirred up by the bombardment by Ger-
man warships, and all day the half of
the battalion which has not yet gone
to Lark Hill, was kept within hearing
distance of the bugle. That has no
special significance, because we have
been under those orders two or three
times. I had to wait, however, until
after supper, before getting permis-
sion to come up to this canteen to
Davin also writes that he does not
regret enlisting, for he says: "This is
going to be one of the greatest experi-
ences of my natural allowance or lfe
It is just like going to college."
Word was received from Zinn, writ-
ten while in the trenches with the
French troops, to the effect that the
battle was, "going on merrily, with the
navy guns to the rear tearing up the
German entrenchments in a heahy
fashion," and that there was a "like-
lihood of an advance through a barbed
wire forest within the next few days."
The message was written Jan. 2, on an
allies' form card, the French words:
for "in good health," "in trenches,"
"received your letter," and the like
being underlined, and a line of person-
al information following.

recent experience has shown that the

(rnci capa:1ble of fulfilling the de-
mands laid upon it by class athletes.
In view of the large numbers which
have been appearing at gatherings of
like nature, it has become necessary
to find some place with a larger capac-
ity, and plans are already in motion
for the securing of the west physics
lecture room for the basketball mass

growing interest in basketball, Direc-
tor Rowe expressed himself as beingE
hopeful for the possibility of securing
the physics room for this purpose.
The intramural records have had a
thorough overhauling in the past week,
which has resulted in bringing to light
a great number of men interested in
the indoor winter sport. Cards have
been addressed, and, except for the
stamping of time and place, are all
ready to send out to over 600 men
who have signed up for basketball.
The number is the largest that has
