Michigan's fencers are hard at work
preparing for the .first match of the
season on February 27, when the Wol-
verine foil artists meet the Cornell
fencers at Ithaca. With 15 men now
working out at the gymnasium, inter-
est in the coming match is growing.
It is not unlikely that the Michigan
fencers will be accompanied by a small
band of rooters when the Varsity team

A match between the student and
the faculty fencing teams is being plan-

as the faculty team boasts several ex-
ceptionally good fencers.
The elimination tournament, which.

o'clock tonight at the Whitney theater,
a capacity house is e'Xpected to be on
hand to witness the production of "Po-
mander Walk," the thirty-first annual
play of the Comedy club. Everything
is in readiness for this second presen-
tation of the play, which is said. to
eclipse every previous offering ' of
Michigan's oldest dramatic organiza-
tion, from the ranks of which have
come some of the foremost entertain-
ers on the professional stage.
The play itself is a comedy, depict-
ing simple English life of the period
around 1805. Arising from the three
love strains that run through the play,.
are a great number of extremely hum-
[orous situations. There is something'
of a plot to the play but it is more im-
aginary than real, the action and lines
tending rather toward the entertain-
ment of the audience.
In having secured the endorsement
of the Ann Arbor center of the Drama
league, the club has assured itself of
the support of a majority of the most
critical theater-goers of Ann Arbor.
After last night's final dress rehears-
al, Director H. L. Nutting, '15L, and
Fdward Sachs, '17, who has had' pro-t
fessionalexperience in the same play,
expressed themselves as exceedingly
well pleased with the manner in which

Y. 1. C. A. WORKERS BANQUET AT_
NEWBERRY HALL THIS EVENING
To further the work which has been
undertaken by the conservation com-
mittee of the university Y. M. C. A.,
which is made up largely of men who
were interested in the recent mobiliza-
tion campaign, plans for a banquet at
Newberry hall at 5:30 o'clock tonight
have been made. The Reverend,
Charles Gilkey, of the Hyde Park Bap-
tist church, of Chicago, will be one of
the speakers on the program. Waldo
R. Hunt, '16, will also speak. The ban-
quet will be under the direction of
Floyd Nagler, '15E, and men who are
interested either in social service work
or Bible study are invited to come.
Tickets may be secured at the offices
of the Y. M. C. A.
"The music is far better than the
average college production," said Eu-
gene B. Sanger, director of this year's
opera, who arrived in Ann Arbor Sun-
day. "About 20 per cent of the origi-
nal music of the average opera re-
mains after cutting," continued San-
ger, "but only a few changes will have
to be made in the music." A few of
the songs will be rewritten, and some
slight changes will be made.
In company with Sylvan Grosner,
'14L, author of the play, Mr. Sanger
went over the entire book, and found
that fewer changes would be necessi-
tated than in last year's play, of which
one act was rewritten.
Those to whom portions of the play
had been given out, rehearsed before
the director yesterday afternoon. Mr.
Sanger said that the first impression
was good, and that the voices were ex-
cellent. He was also pleased with

M. G. Robinson, '17E, who has been
working out in the distance and mid-
dIe distance races, showed unexpected
form, although not pitted against the
fast men on the track.
Corbin spent his early part of the
afternoon in working on the high
jump, going five feet and a half be-
fore leaving the standards for the hur-
dies, in which he succeeded in beating
in three heats the time of the fresh-
man hurdler, Wickersham. Cross
worked at the weights alone, making
most of his endeavors toward the per-
fection of form and guarding against
the commission of fouls.
Two squads took turns at stretching
their limbs in the quarter and half
mile. John fell in behind the troup led
by Ufer and seemed to handle the
longer distance in satisfactory fashion.
Cheniss Receive Delicate Instrument
One of the most delicate and highly
sensitive instruments for the measur-
ing of minute distances has been re-
ceived by the department of chemistry.
This is the cathetometer, which reg-

held up in Alsace for several months,
the instrument was finally shipped by.

Dean M. E. Cooley welcomed to the
university yesterday morning, 43 engi-
neers, road commissioners and build-
ers, here to take the short course in
highway engineering which is being
given this week by the university and
the state highway department.
According to figures ,compiled be-
fore the course was started, yester-
day's enrollment is only half of what
the total will be. Dean Cooley gave
the first scheduled talk of the session,
when he spoke on, "The Engineer in
the Service of the Public."
The feature of yesterday's program
consisted in the evening lecture,
"Highway Engineering Problems," by
Thomas H. MacDonald, Iowa state en-
gineer. Mr. MacDonald, using illus-
trations drawn chiefly from his own
state, classified the problems which
confront a road engineer into six
classes, emphasizing chiefly the main-
tenance of roads, and the keeping of
accurate records and accounts.
The work today is given over to a
consideration of Michigan's earth
roads. The morning will be occupied
with classroom work. In the after-
noon those who prefer may take lab-
oratory work designed for their bene-
fit, and to be given in the highway
and bituminous materials laboratories.
The other portion of the students will
hear two papers, one by Prof. W. C.
Hoad of the sanitary engineering de-
partment, the other by K. I. Sawyer,
of the Michigan state highway depart-
ment. " Professor Hoad will talk on,
"The Split Log Drag on Earth Roads,"
at 1:30 o'clock and Mr. Sawyer will
talk on, "The Value of a Continuous
System of Maintenance for Earth
Roads," at 3:00 o'clock.
Dean Charles M. Strahan, of the en-
gineering department of the Universi-
ty of Georgia, will give the lecture at
8:00 o'clock tonight. He has chosen
as his topic, "Developing an Earth
Road." All of the lectures are given
in room 348, new engineering building.
Registrations in the course are made.
