According to all indications, the in-
terclass track meet to be held in Wat-
erman gym on Saturday night, will be
the biggest affair of its kind ever giv-
en at Michigan. About 180 men have
already signified their intention of en-
tering. As the entry list will be open
until tonight, the total should be swell-
ed considerably before the meet is
Because of the large number of men
entered in the quarter and the half, In-
tramural Director Rowe has decided to
hold preliminaries in these events to-
morrow afternoon. The number of en-
trants in the mile run is, as yet, not
large enough to warrant trials. The
quarter and half-milers will run be-
tween the 3:15 o'clock and the 4:15
o'clock gym classes, and between the
4:15 o'clock and 5:f5 o'clock classes.
The 35-yard dash has about 50 en-
tries. The men will be run in heats
Saturday, the winners qualifying for
the finals. The other events on the
program have not proved as popular,
but the list is large. The pole vault
seems to have been especially slighted,
as only 8 men had entered up to yes-
The "dub" meet last year attracted
only 182 men, and as the total num-
per of entries for the class meet had
almost reached that number yesterday,
this year's eivent will surpass the for-
mer meet in numbers. The winners of
the first three places in eacn event will
receive class numerals.'
"We would be utterly confused if
war were to break out suddenly," is
the startling statement made recently'
by Congressman A. P. Gardner, who is
to lecture at the Whitney theater next
Monday night, March 15, on "Safety
First-Is America Prepared Against
War." Mr. Gardner goes on to say
that people are careful about attack-
ing the man who can defend himself,
and nations are just as discreet before
deciding to pitch on a country which
has adequate defenses. "At the pres-
ent time," he observes, "the United
States is not in a satisfactory position
to repel an attack."
In making an attack on militarism
yesterday, Prof. J. A. C. Hildner, of
the German department; said, "If war
is a madness, and a good many think
it is, it is the business of education
to lead men in the direction of sanity
and not in the direction of pathologic-
al states of mind. If war is a virtue,
all upright and honorable men ought
to promote it." Professor Hildner said
that he was against military training,
especially at this time, because the,
craze for it has been greatly augment-
ed on account of the present war. "But
I am not in favor of disarming," said
Professor Hildner, unless some agree-
ment is reached by the great powers."
Seats for Mr. Gardner's lecture are
now on sale at Wahr's, the Union and
the Whitney theater, at 35 cents each.
Prof. A. H. Lloyd, of the philosophy
department, will deliver a lecture or
the subject, "A Modern Superstition'
in St. Andrew's church this afternoon
at 4:30 o'clock. This is the first of a
series of three Lenten vesper talks,
Tomorrow afternoon Prof. R. M.
Wenley will give the fourth of a series
of talks on the general subject, "Relig-
ion,-A Need in Common Life." All
students in the university are invited
to hear both lectures.
Prof. Henderson Represents University
Prof. William D. Henderson, of the
physics department, will represent the
university at the meeting of the Na-
tional Confederation on University Ex-
tension, which is being held in Madi-
son, Wis., March 11, 12 and 13. Pro-
.fessor Henderson is director of the ex-
tension work at Michigan. .

encounter between the locals and

for a relay. Last year's meet between
these two colleges hinged upon the

A IVISES STUDENTS TO BEGIN
STUDY OF CAMPUS CONDITIONS
"Begin your study of social condi-
tions with the campus," was the advice
of G. C. Wright, instructor in English
in the engineering college, to the 50
students who assembled to form a club
to study socialism, in the Adelphi
rooms last night. Mr. Wright said
that the especial purpose of the or-
ganization should be to create a criti-
cal attitude among the students.
Samuel Witting, '15, was elected
provisional chairman, and was given
authority to appoint a committee to
draw up a constitution and 1 select
speakers for the coming meetings.

LAST NIGHT'S CONTEST CLOSE
Fresh lits insured their entering the
final round of the basketball series, by
defeating the soph lits last night, by
a score of 25 to 14. The senior laws
beat the fresh medics, 24 to 15, and
the junior engineers took the measure
of the architects, 33- to 23.
The first year lits won their game
in the first half in which they.garner-'
ed 16 points. The scoring star of the
game was Drummond of the 1918 lit'
team who caged six baskets. Captain
Perry showed up best for the sophs,
shooting two baskets and three fouls.

The play in the junior engineer-ar-

was rather rough. Warner and Von-

At the fourth meeting of the Forum
at the Union at 7:30 o'clock tonight,
students will have an opportunity to
express their views on the question,
"Should Military Training for Stu-
dents be Introduced at Michigan?"
Karl Mohr, '15L, has been chosen to
act as presiding officer.
In view of the present European,
war, and the consequent agitation for
an increased military force in the
United States, this question is expect-
ed to draw- a large crowd to the ses-
sion tonight. The petition for military
drill which was presented to the re-
gents, and then tabled by the board,
shows that there is sentiment on the
campus in favor of such drill. Prob-
ably an equal number of students,
however, are opposed to such action,
and a number of issues should be pre-
The subjects previously announced
for discussion in case the main topic
is exhausted, are as follows: "Is the
General Elimination of Student Drink-

the Athletic Association Performing
Its Function Satisfactorily, and with
Due Regard to the Rights and Conven-

Prof. C. H. Cooley, of the sociology
department, said, "I enjoy an opportu-
nity to meet students of all depart-
ments on a social basis, and this meet-
ing furnishes such an opportunity. The
meetings are well worth while."
"I have always felt the lack of asso-
ciation with my students," stated Prof.
R. T. Crane, of the political science
department. "Johns Hopkins, where I
was a student, furnishes better oppor-
tunities than Michigan through its de-
partmental libraries, where students
and faculty work together. These
meetings serve to bridge this gap be-.
tween students and faculty."
Prof. I. L. Sharfman, of the political
economy department, said, "The fac-
ulty nights are well worth while, and
should be continued."
