E dible Prizes Range from Vegetables
to Fruit, With Chance for Last
to Win

Michigan's second annual "Dub"
track meet, scheduled for March 13,
promises to be the most interesting
meet on the year's list of track dates,
and with first, second and third prizes
ranging from half a cabbage to a peck
of apples, a large entry list is antici-
,pated. Any man in the university, who
is not working under Coach Farrell,
either on the Varsity or All-Fresh
squads, is eligible to participate in this
Winners of points in the "Dub" meet
may be awarded numerals if their
classes so decide, but in either case,
the number of edible prizes put up by
the athletic authorities makes it high-,
ly probable that anyone who enters
will stand a good chance to win a light
The prizes are to be awarded in a
new way this year. The man who
wins first place may not receive any-
thing, while the last man to finish may
carry off the biggest prize of all. Be-
fore each event, the numbers indicat-
ing what places are to receive prizes
are to be placed in a sealed envelope,
and this envelope will not be opened
until after the event has been decided.
This method of awarding the prizes
gives everyone an equal chance to win,
while the winners of the first three
places in each event may be given
their numerals, upon vote of their
class. Under the new plan, a record-
breaking list of entries is looked for
by Intramural Director Floyd Rowe,
who is in charge of the plans for the
Everyone desiring to enter should
give his name to Director Rowe some-
time this week. He may be found at
the gymnasium from 3:00 until 5:00
o'clock each afternoon, and from 7:00
until 9:00 o'clock each evening, during
which hours he will work with men
who desire to practice for the meet.

Emmett I. Connely, '15, will take the
place of Varsity track manager, left
vacant recently by the resignation of

cision of the board of directors of the

meeting yesterday afternoon.
The two vacancies on the football
committee will be filled by John W.

of the organization and early history
of the assembly idea in the literary
Promoters of the plan will follow
out the original plan to refrain from
making attendance compulsory. They.
are of the opinion, however,.that the

had been reduced by the ineligibility
of two of its members, to two men.
Connely was a member of the track
committee in 1913, and in 1914 was
elected as one of the two assistant
managers from a field of four com-
petitors. He was recently defeated in
the managerial election for the office
which he now holds, by virtue of the
board's action in appointing him to the
vacant managersnip.
Langs was among the men who took
part in the competitive system for
nomination for assistant football man-
ager, but was not among the eight men
nominated for the position at the time
of the fall election.' Pardee was one of
the defeated candidates for football
manager at the recent election.
One of. the anticipated vacancies on
the Interscholastic committee was fill-
ed by Ray J. Mills, '16L, becoming eli-
gible. The qu'estion of the eligibility
of the fourth man will be settled at
the end of this week..
The board decided to award to the
soph lit campus championship football

taking this action, the board granted

Dr. Nasmyth Points Out Misconstrue-
tion of Darwinian Theory
In his lecture before the members of
the International Polity and the .Cos-
mopolitan clubs in Harris hall last
night, Dr. George W. Nasmyth, presi-
dent of the Association of Cosmopoli-
tan clubs, refuted the popular miscon-
ception of the Darwinian theory, in re-
gard to the necessity of strife in the
progress of the human race. He also
stated the views of great men in the
present age in regard to war and
peace, and brought out the idea that
physical struggle among men was iot
an uplifting force in the progress of
the race.
In interpreting the theory of Dar-
win, Dr. Nasmyth showed that the
famous scientist's theories in regard to
"the survival of the fittest," had been
misconstrued. He further pointed out
that Darwin laid particular emphasis
upon the formation of moral laws, as
the chief constructive factor in the
evolution of man.
Following the talk by Dr. Nasmyth,
members of the newly formed Polity
club adopted a constitution presented
by the constitution committee, and
plans for definite organization were
