Ithacans and Wolverines Cannot Find
Satisfactory Dates for Either
Indoor or Outdoor

Eu stern Intercolleg ate at New
Attracts First Mibcigain


Three important changes are evident
in the Varsity track schedule for the
coming season, announced by the board
in control of the athletic association at
its last meeting. For the first time in
several years, Cornell will not face
Michigan on either the indoor or out-
door track. The only date which the
Ithacan authorities offered the Wolver-
ines, was not satisfactory to the Michi-
gan leaders.
To fill the vacancy caused by the loss
of the Cornell meets, Notre Dame has
been added to the Varsity schedule,
and will appear in Ann Arbor for an
indoor meet on February 7. The
Michigan athletes will journey to
South Bend for an outdoor meet in
Princeton has been added to the
Michigan schedule, being down for a
two-mile relay in Ann Arbor upon
February 20. This is the first event
upon this year's card, and will come
the same night as the Varsity meet.
Syracuse will face the Wolverines
twice this year, at Syracuse indoors,
and outdoors at Ann Arbor. .
The eastern intercollegiate at New
York 'is a new contest on the Varsity'
card. Michigan will enter only a two-
mile relay team at this meet, "which
comes March 6. The outdoor intercol-
legiate is on May 29 at Cambridge.
Michigan will probably place a team of
at least 10 men in this contest.
The schedule follows:
Indoor Meets.
February 20-Princeton two-mile, re-
lay and Varsity meet, Ann Arbor.
February 27-Notre Dame duel meet,
Ann Arbor.
March 6 - Eastern intercollegiate
meet, New York City.
March 13-Syracuse dual meet at
Outdoor Meets.
May 1-Varsity field meet..
May 8-Notre Dame dual meet at
South Bend.
May 15--Syracuse dual meet, Ann
May 22-Interscholastic meet, Ann

Well Known Editor of Fra and Philis.
tine Tralks Next Sunday on
"Getting Together"
Elbert Hubbard, the sage of East1
Aurora, has been secured by the com-
mittee in charge of the Union Sunday
afternoon programs, to speak next
Sunday on "Getting Together."
"Fra Elbertus," as he is known
throughout the country, is chief of
the Roycrofters and editor of the Fra
and the Philistine.
In speaking of "The Romance of
Business," a talk which he gave in
Toronto, the Toronto Globe said:
"Pretty, near the whole range of hui-
man activity and experience was cov-
ered by the East Aurora sage in the
course of his remarks, but modern
business and the constitution thereof,
was the topical thread underlying his
wanderings. Each point was backed
up with illuminating argument and
reference, and the value of the optimis-
tic gospel lying behind the speaker's
scintillating epigrams was apparent to

Friday Recommends State Income r'tax
Prof. David Friday, of the econom-
ics department, in a speech delivered
before the fourth annual state tax
conference, held recently in Detroit,
recommended the substitution of a
state income tax for the present per-
sonal property tax, as a means to cure
the present tax evils.

school, at Rapid City, South Dakota.
Battle, hinging on Nomination of Mr.
H. Stephens, of Otsego, Adds to
Candidate's Chances
Predictions that the University of
Michigan will become the laughing
stock of the country if Mr. Henry
Stephens, of Otsego, is nominated for.
the regency, show with what bitter-
ness the fight is being waged for the
Republican nominations at the state
convention, to be held next Friday at
Grand Rapids.
Mr. Stephens, whose picture has.
been referred to as "a good beer ad-
vertisement," seems to be strongly
supported by prominent political work-
ers in the north, and the bitter fac-
tional fight, that has developed in
Wayne county, adds greatly to his
chances for success.
Two county conventions were held
in Detroit on Friday, and two delega-
tions named for the state gathering,
one supporting Regent Frank Leland,
the other, Dr. Guy L. Kiefer. The
fight between these factions will be
arbitrated by the credentials' commit-
tee of the state convention.

Professional Atmosphere of "Poman -
der Walk," Staged Saturday,
Makes Strong Appeal
"Pomander Walk," the 1915 produc-
tion of the Comedy club, which was
given before a J-Hop audience at the
Whitney theater last Saturday, added
another success to the records of
Michigan's dramatic organization. The
reception accorded the play has led the
directors of the production to an-
nounce that a second presentation
will be made on Friday night, Febru-
ary 19. The most noticea'ble feature
of the performance, as given Saturday,
was the professional atmosphere which
pervaded the staging of the produc-

which required considerable versatil-
ity. M. C. Wood, '17, playing in his

581Yard and Quater iie Mn Illntis
D~o Better Ttan at
With 'the two mile relay race
againist Princeton a scant two weeks
away, the half milers will receive spe
ial attention from Cach F1+arrel of
the Varsity track team, although the
entire squad will be pushed more rap-
idly than Has been the case up to the
Michigan's defeat at Buffalo by the
Pennsylvania medey relay aggregation
can be attributed directly to biglosses
in the quarter and the half, but despite
this fact the coach hopes to enter a
strong quartet against Princeton when
the easterners visit Ann Arbor.
John, the quarter miler who worked
out for a time last season, has re-
ported for work, and will remain with
the squad. John showed considerable
promise last season during his brief
appearance with ,the track squad, and
his presence should tend to strengthen
the 440 event.
The one bit f consolation that
Michigan followers can derive from
the bad defeat at Buffalo, comes in the
work of Captain Smith. He wa pii'ed
against .Lockwood, one of the crack
sprinters of the east in the 220, but he
gave Burby a four yard lead. Run-
ing on a stranxge floor for the first
time, "Hal" came within 'tw-fifths of
a second of the track record, according
to unofficial timing.
Students Give Vaudeville at Jaksn
George M. Moritz, '5, and Chase B.,
Sikes, '16, presented the sketch "The
Maid, the Man and the Lamp," one of
the hits of the Spotlight Vaudeville, at
the annual banquet of the Jackson
Chamber of Commerce in Jackson last
Thursday night. Selden Dickinson,
'151L, played the piano accompaniments
for the sketch, while Leroy J. Sanlon,

'161L, rendered several trick piano acts.

Expressions of opinion on the J-Hop
from students and members of the fac-
ulty alike, who attended, agree that
the dance was entirely successful as
a social function, and there seems to
be little doubt according to chairman
Richardi C. Jeter, '16E, that it was a
financial success as well, although a
definite report will not be made until
Prof. A. H. Lloyd, chairman of the
committee in charge of non-athletic
student affairs, was of the opinion that
the hop was successful, and he saw
no reason why it should not be given
again next year. He had several new
plans in mind where some improve-
ments could be made, but did not care
to make them public at the' present
im e.
Registrar A. . Hall, of the literary
department, was enthusiastic. "It was

everybody present seemed to think
the same. Nothing happened which
could offend anyone, and there was no
feature which could arouse hostile
criticism, or give any reason for dis-
continuing it."
The decorations were more lavish
than at former hops. Every part of
Watermnan gymnasium, in which the
dance was held, was decorated as a
Venetian garden, flow er-covered la t-
ices covering the sides of the room,
the place bright with big inverted
lights. At the north end of the gym,

Dr. Cunminigs :oes Not Fear Spread
of Disease, in Spite of Some
New Cases
Many junior dents have succumbed
to an epidemic of mumps, which first
made its appearance here early last
week. An even dozen of the class
have already been pronounced by the
health service staff as suffering with
the infection. An examination of all
the members of the class was made
by the health service staff last week,
and those who had symptoms of the
disease were administered preventa-
tive treatments. Despite this, there

have been new cases daily.
In a statement yesterday, 1)r. H. H.
Cummings, head of the health ser-
vice staff, said that the close personal
contact between the members of the
class, both in the laboratory and
classroom, was largely responsible for
the rapid spread of the disease. He
thought that the preventative meas-
ures taken, will soon have the epi-
demic in hand, and placed little faith
in rumors that a general epidemic is
likely to occur.

'hird Match Shows Gain of 52 Points
Over Washington Contest
Michigan's rifle club shot its third
match in intercollegiate competition
against Kansas State Agricultural Col-
lege, at the Ferry field range yester-
day afternoon, the fle high men mark-
ing a total score of 903, 52 better than
the score which defeated Washington
in the shoot held Saturday, January
24. The result of the second
shoot, that with Arizona, held Satur-
day, January 31 , is unknown but the
score of 932 made by the Michigan
team should assure another victory.

"War is the failure of human wis-
dom, a social disease."
With these opening shots Dr. John
Mez,, president of the International
Students Federation, began his cam-
paign for a better understanding of
international relations, yesterday af-
ternoon at Newberry hall. In a gen-
eral introduction he brought out the
peace movement for which he stands,
and the problems which it presents to
the student public.
"In considering war, we ought to
look at it from a comprehensive stand-
point," said Dr. Mez. "It is a social
disease, and the curing of it should be
dealt with just as scientifically as the
curing of any ordinary ailment.
"When disputes and misunderstand-
i cgs arise between two nations they
should be settled by conciliation, and
not by physical combat. Twenty wars
have been successfully averted
through arbitration in former times,
and scientific study will lead to even
more successful conciliations in the
Dr. Mez, who is making a tour of
the American universities, in an ef-
fort to create interest in the peace
movement, is a graduate of Heidelberg
university, and a resident of Freiberg,
Germany. He has made a thorough
nation, and was in Belgium at the out-
break of hostilities in August.
He opened his campaign last week at
Syracuse university and was enthus-
iastically received. As a result of a
campaign there, an international poli-
ty club was formed, and has at pres-
ent over 100 members. Lectures will
be held as indicated above.

Visit Umiversity with View
to Improvements
Several senators and members of
the House of Representatives of the
state legislature, were in Ann Arbor
yesterday on a tour of inspection of
the campus, with a view to acquiring
information relative to the proposed
new demonstration school for the edu-
cational department, and the addition
to the library.
The party consisted of the senate
committee on the university, compris-
ing Dr. E. A. Plank, C. W. Foster,
George A. Barnes; the House commit-
tee, consisting of William F. Nank,
Charles r owers, Harvey Penney,
Sheridar f'ord, and G. W. Kooyers,.the
last t' , not being present; members
at large, Senator F. L. Covert,.Repre-
sentatives George S. Wright, Charles
R. Foote and R. M. Watkins.
The legislators inspected the new
power plant, the hospitals and the
university storehouse in the morning,
and spent the afternoon in the, build-
ings on the campus. At noon they were
entertained at luncheon by President
Harry B. Hutchins, at the Michigan
Union, Regents Beal, Bulkley and
Clements also being present.
The needs for the new demonstra-
tion school were pointed out in a talk
given in the afternoon by Prof. A. S.
Whitney, of the educational depart-+
ment. Librarian Theodore Koch, Dean
Karl E. Guthe and Prof. I. N. Demmon+
spoke on the desirability of an exten-
sion to the library. The party return-.

It has been decided to give the next
"Band Bounce," on Friday, February
26, in -ill auditorium, a departure
from the original plan to give a per-
formance on two sucecssive nights.
The committee in charge of the ar-
rangements for the concert will meet
at 4:30 o'clock tomorrow afternoon in
the office of S. J. Hoexter, manager of
the Varsity band, on the second floor
of the engineering shops building.
All the more important plans for
the entertainment were made before
the examination period. An effort will
be made to secure a large advance
ticket sale. This, however, will not
begin until the week before the con-
cert. Those who worked on the for-
mer "Band Bounce" will remain as
part of the organization for this one,
but it is likely that some in addition
will be needed for the present concert.
The program will contain a large
number of short acts, part of which
will be of the light vaudeville variety,
and others of a more serious nature.
While the program has not yet been
announced, it is understood that one
of the chief features will be a skit by
W. A. P. John, '16, described as a
comedy melodrama. Another act which
promises to produce a sensation is
