the club, said last night, that the girls

used. This will probably be the last
public appearance of the organization
this year, and is the first since the

sembled at the band office yesterday
afternoon, and made the preliminary
arrangements for the ticket commit-

will be given out on Tuesday afternoon
in the band office on the second floor
of the engineering shops building, and
others wishing to work on these com-
inittees should report at this time. The
office will be open all afternoon, but all
who can are urged to come at 4:00
o'clock. A prize of $10.00 is offered to
the man who sells the largest number
of tickets.
Rehearsals of the Varsity band vil
be held at 2:00 o'clock tomorrow after-
noon in University Hall, and the fol-

For the first time in the history of

Final trials for the Michigan Varsity
quartet which meets Princeton in the
two-mile relay race in Waterman gym
tbmorrow were held yesterday morn-
ing, all trials being run against time.
The morning's work 'resulted in the
selection for the team of Carroll,
Ufer, Donnelly and Fox, *with Grau-
man selected as the alternate.
The order in which the men will run
has not as yet been determined upon
officially, and the time made by the
runners in their trials is not to be an-
nounced. Judging from the past poli-
cy of Trainer Farrell and from the
stuff which the members of the team
have shown so far, Donnelly and Fox
will run first and second, followed by
Carroll and Ufer in third and fourth
Ufer is a miler who won his official
recognition last year in the form of an
"M. A. A.," but this year he has been
showing up well in the half and being
one of the two oldest men on the team
he should, in consideration of his
showing, run last among the four.
Carroll is another miler who has
been handling the shorter distance in
good style. His experience is limited
to work on the All-Fresh track team of
last year and to the medley relay race
at Buffalo this year in which he ran
the half, after training for the mile.
Donnelly is the only half miler on
the team, being one of last year's All-
Fresh track men and their star mid-
dle distance man. He is inexperienced
in Varsity competition, and conse-
quently will probably be given one of
the early places on the team.
The other place on the team was won
by Fox who is a two-miler and cross-
country man, a member of the 1913
All-Fresh, but who is inexperienced in
Varsity competition in the distance he
is running tomorrow night.
The man who will step into a vacant
position should any place be vacated
will be Grauman who is a sophomore
from last year's freshman team, and
whose former event has been the two-
mile. Burby, Fontana and M. G. Rob-
inson also entered the trials held yes-

Deutscher Verin to Give Sleigh Ride
Members of the Deutscher Verein
will give their annual sleigh ride dance
at some town near Ann Arbor in two or
three weeks, providing there is snow

New members for the Deutscher

part of March, and an initiation dance
will be given later.

Son of Former Executive and Presi-
dent of Williams College Will
Follow Brother
Prof. Harry A. Garfield will be the
second of the sons of former President
James A. Garfield, to visit Ann Arbor
this month. Professor Garfield, who is
president of Williams College, will
speak at the Methodist church on Feb-
ruary 28, under tIe auspices of the
Wesleyan guild.
Like his father and brother, James
R. Garfield, ex-Secretary of the' In-
terior, who is to speak at the Wash-
ington's Birthday celebration, Profess-
or Garfield has had a varied political
and public career, Graduating from
Williams College in 1885, he became
actively interested in the practice of
law in Cleveland, . After 18 years of
law practice, he became professor of
politics at Princeton University, in
1903. In 1908, he returned to his Alma
Mater to assume the presidency of the

Requests From Local Play-Goers Cause
Officers to Consider Third
Officers of the Comedy club are put-
ting their heads together in order to.
decide whether a third performance of
"Pomander Walk" will be given this
spring, and thereby comply with the
numerous requests from students and
faculty men that the-local play-goers'
be given another opportunity to wit-
ness the production. If presented
again, the play will probably be pre-
sented on March 3, although the execu-
tive committee will decide the matter
definitely at its next meeting.
According to all precedents, Tues-
day night's peornance would be the
last appearance -of the play in this city,
but the small attendance recorded at
the last two productions and the press-
ing demand for a thirdappearancemay
throw the balance in favor of another
show. The executive committee, how-
ever, is unwilling to favor the proposi-
tion unless the demand continues.
Norman Hackett, '98, after witness-
ing the J-Hop performance of "Po-
mander Walk," went on record as say-
ing that it was the best performance
the Comedy club has ever given. Fran-
cis Millen, of New York, who viewed
the same production expressed the fol-
lowing sentiments: "In the old days
they thought they had good shows, but
I have never seen better work on the
amateur stage." Those who are push-
ing the project for a third performance
are backing up their claims with these
The Chicago trip of the club is still
pending, so that no definite word has
been given out as to the chances for
going to that city, .Offers have been
received from Flint and Saginaw, but
whether or not they will be accepted
is a question. There is a possibility of
the club's staging a performance in
Detroit, although the matter is veiled
with uncertainty.
This year's profits of the club will be
used in the purchase of a dramatic
library for the use of members of the

club and its patrons and patronesses.
Where the library is to be stationed
has not yet been decided.

the Princeton relay team is another
story. What causes many an old
Michigan track enthusiast a thrill is
that Keene Fitzpatrick will again pre-

ord of service which Keen Fitzpatrick

From 1894 to 1910, wIth the excep-
tion of the years 1897 and 1898, Fitz-
patrick was responsible for the success
of the Michigan track athletes. It is,
because he was so loyal to the uini-

in his efforts to produce winning
teams, and so amiably disposed that he

because of these things that every
