CHEMICALS FINALLY ARRIVE
AFTER DELAY OF SIX MONTHS
Chemicals, which were ordered by
the department of chemistry six
months ago, and which were shipped
from Germany last December on the
"Florida," have just arrived in New
York. Due to the delay of the "Flor-
ida's" arrival, ando injuries which she
incurred enroute, a "general average"
has been declared. As a large amount
of her cargo was consigned to Eber-
bach & Co., they are responsible for
their share of the expense of bringing
the ship to port, and for the damaged
cargo. No supplies can be obtained
until all consignees, who have property
on board the "Florida," have deposited
cash or a bond for the amount of their
assessment. .All goods consigned to
Eberbach & Co. were insured, however,
and their release will be secured as
soon as possible.
Prof. Anatole Le Braz May Speak Here
Prof. A. G. Canfield, head of the
French department, is making an ef-
fort to arrange with Prof. Anatole Le
Braz, of the University of Rennes, to
deliver a lecture here in the near fu-
Returns from Conference in Chicago
President Harry B. Hutchins re-
turned yesterday from Chicago, where
he has been attending the Conference
With the first game of the interclass
basketball series scheduled for next
Monday, the 20 odd teams entered are
making the most of their practice pe-
riods this week, every court in Water-
man gymnasium being in constant use
during the six available evenings.
From the present outlook, the com-
ing interclass race promises to be ex-
ceedingly close, for there are at least
three fives which have a good chance
to win the championship cup, while
there are a dozen or more that believe
they have more than an even chance
Last winter's champions, now the
senior lits, again have a strong team
in the field, and the near graduates
appear to have an edge over the other
fives. Both the soph and fresh lits are
represented by likely looking teams,
however, and the winning five will
have to play consistently good basket-
ball to finish in the lead.
The '15 lits boasted two members
of last year's all-campus five, Stuart
and Marsh being named on the myth-
ical team as forward and guard re-
spectively. With these two stars back-
ed by such veterans as Chapman, Pol-
asky, Worth, Heisst, Brown and Con-
nelly, the senior lit team will put a
first class five in this year's -series.
Whitmarsh and Codd, of the fresh
lit aggregation of last year, are lost
to the soph team this year, but from
Bradbeer, Shattuck, Cohen and Rich-
ardson, of the old team, and a half
dozen new men, the second year men
should be able to make a strong"bid
for the championship.
Other members of the all-campus
fives of last year are Warner, '16, Mc-
Clellan, '15L, Melvin, '15D, and Closy,
CAMPUS ASTRONOMERS SEARCH
FOR NEWLY DISCOVERED COMET
Discovery of the Mellish comet by
an astronomer in Wisconsin a few
nights ago, has aroused considerable
interest at the local observatory, and
members of the staff are on the look-
out for the new orbit. Owing to un-
favorable weather conditions, the com-
et has not yet been seen, but it is hop-
ed that on the first clear night a suc-
cessful observation will be taken.
Professor Markley Hurts Right Ankle
Prof. J. L. Markley, of the mathe-
matics department, fell on the ice near'
his residence yesterday and broke sev-
eral of the small bones in his right
ankle. He has not been able to meet
his classes since.
call for candidates for the 1915 Varsi-
ty baseball team yesterday noon, fol-
lowing the receipt of word from Coach
Lundgren, that he would reach Ann
Arbor either last night or this morn-
ing. The candidates for the Wolverine
nine assemble at 1:00 o'clock this af-
ternoon in Waterman gymnasium, for
the first general practice of the year.
With the arrival of Coach Lundgren,
the real indoor training season begins,
and the daily work-outs in the cage
will continue until it is warm enough
to permit the men to go outdoors with-
out danger of stiffening muscles.
Michigan's battery candidates have
been working out daily in the Varsity
cage for the past week and a half, and
already the pitchers are beginning to
put more stuff on the ball, in anticipa-
tion of the. batting practice that will
begin this week. Ferguson and Dav-
idson, in particular, are fast rounding
into shape, both of the veteran hurlers
apparently being due for a big year.
Sisler will not attempt to do much
pitching until after the warm weather
is here to stay, for, with his port side
wing apparently as strong as ever, the
veteran south-paw is taking no
chances of another strain. With plen-
ty of hurlers on hand this spring, there
is no need for the 1914 captain to ex-
tend himself in the preliminary games,
and the early diamond contest will
probably find Sisler holding down one
of the garden jobs.

HALF-MILE MEN BUSY AT GYM
But Few Varsity Tracksters at Work;
Last Day of Tryouts
Waterman gym's oval track was kept
busy yesterday with half-mile runners,
but few of the speedsters were Varsi-
ty men working in their regular trial
against time for a place on the Varsi-
ty quartet, which meets Princeton's
two mile relay team here Saturday.
Ufer chose to take a light workout
yesterday, and postponed his final trial
until today. Part of the little miler's
program for the afternoon consisted in
a quarter-mile dash, an event with
which he is comparatively unacquaint-
ed. While taking this final polish to his
afternoon's work, Trainer Farrell held
a stop watch on the runner, but refus-
ed to make public any of the time

Takes Bold Men To Invade
Women's Favorite Classes
"Where are the men," said the pro-
fessor, as he tried to look through his
glasses to the back part of the room.
It was a class in contemporary litera-
ture, and the instructor was trying to
pick out the few bold, bad men who
had dared to elect one of the women's
"Let me see--one, two, three, four,"
he counted, and then explained, "You
know, I must take care of these men..
I always do. I watch them carefully."
"Where is that red-headed man who
was here last time?" Ah-hah," he mut-
tered as hit memory prompted him,
"he told me he would be absent this
time. So, one, two, three, four, and
one is five.
"Three years ago, I had only one,
then there were two, then three, and
now five. If I live 25 years more, I'll
have a class of 25 genuine men.
"Let me see," -he continued in sta-
tjctical mood, "there are 3,000 or 4,000
men in the university. No, we have
6,000, so there are five thousand men.
That is, how do you call it, one per
centum. No, one per mill!"
*"Now, isn't that remarkable, remark-
able.! 5,000 men, and of them, only five
have seen fit to take up the study. of

"You know it was the women who
founded the Drama League. It is the
women in this country who take in-
terest in the drama. So you see that is
why I expect a great woman dramatist.
This class may produce her."
And then the professor turned to
the subject announced by the cata-
logue. He had wearied of the frailties
of humanity as exhibited by Michigan
students in the making of their elec-
