GAULT NAMEIS '15I
Elbert Hubbard, the sage of East
Aurora, N. Y., who will address the
Union gathering on "Getting-Togeth-
er," at 3:00 o'clock this afternoon, is
well-known as the editor of "The Fra"
and "The Philistine," and as author
of "The Message to Garcia" and "Lit-
William Marion Reedy has described
Fra Elbertus as follows, in giving an
idea of the work he has done: "For
eighteen.years I have been pestered by
people who wanted to know what I
think of Elbert Hubbard and his work
at East Aurora. For the same period
I have had to bear with fervent per-
sons who wrote to tell me that Hub-
bard is a fraud, a faker and other
things. -;Hubbard went to East Aurora
when the place was a ramshackle vil-
lage. Now it is almost a model town.
The Roycroft Inn, the Chapel, the
Printing-Plant, The Roycroft School,
known as Emerson hall, The Book-
bindery,-all these are institutions
which beautify the place."
The committee on arrangements has
secured two musical numbers. Phillip
Noher, '18, will play a violin solo, ac-
compahied on the piano by Andrew
Haigh, '18, and a quartet composed of

Charles Webster, ex-Varsity Catcher,
Agitates Abolition of
TO COACH TEAM IF INELIGIBLE
Interest has been aroused in uni-
versities throughout the contry by the
agitation of Charles Webber, varsity
catcher in 1913, to do away with the
ruling prohibiting the playing of sum-
mer baseball by university athletes. .
In a letter to the sport editors of
several metropolitan papers, Webber
explains the matter of his eligibility,
and agitates the abolition of the "Sum-
mer baseball" ruling.
As a member of the varsity squad
in 1913, Webber became regular catch-
er when Rogers brokethis leg. Since
he played Varsity ball, Webber engag-
ed in summer baseball for pay. Now
he has returned to the university, and
because of the present ruling is not
eligible for baseball.
The board in control of athletics can
make Webber eligible in two ways,
either by securing the permission of
Michigan's opponents for his playing,
or by abolishing the summer rule. Tle
first method is impracticable, and it is
to accomplish the latter that Webber
has begun his agitation,
It is probable that the board will
now take definite action on the mat-
ter, although the majority of the mem-

yesterday, to help Coach Farrell In

In the dashes, Robinson nosed out
Scofield by a narrow margin, with
Kretzschmar finishing third. Coach
Farrell refused to give out any time
in the dashes, preferring to keep the
sophomores in ignorance. Huyck,
Fisher and Mettie, the men who fin-
ished second in the preliminaries,
were brought together, Fisher winning
with Mettle second.
Wolf won the half-mile from a field
of nearly a dozen candidates, with
Martin finishing second. The runners
were fairly well bunched at the finish,
although the time was not particular-
ly fast. Farrell instructed his milers
to run the distance in five minutes,
so there was no contest for positions
in this event. Cherry nominally fin-
ished first, with Galloway second.
In the 440, Robinson sprang one of
the surprises of the day. Robinson.en-
tered Michigan billed as sprinter, but
with an unusually enviable record as
a quarter-miler, and Coach Farrell en-
tered him in this event yesterday. Rob-
inson was instructed to stay behind
Hardell, and he did so finishing strong-
ly, and, to all appearances, as though
he had been merely jogging the dis-
tance. Farrell refused to give out the
exact time, although.he admitted it was
pretty fast. Robinson may run the
440 in the soph meet, and right now
he looks like the best quarter-miler'
Drummond won'the high jump with
five feet four, Halstead finishing sec-
ond, and Shartel and Boyd tying for

wrestling with the weights, Walls
showing the best form. Livingston,
