Keane's track squad is in excellent

The Michigan aggregation is expect-

But little has been said concerning
the relay race, to which event Syra-
cuse attributes her defeat last season
at the hands of the westerners, when
a dropped baton gave the Wolverines
a lead. The Syracuse squad has an
excellent relay team this season, one
that has won three victories in a trio
of starts. Bowzer's absence, if the
colored flyer is unable to participate,
will weaken the quartet to some ex-

BEER AT CLASS FUNCTIONS!
BUT WAIT..II'S AT HARVARD
Apparently unhampered by supreme
court interference, threatened addi-
tional legislative restrictions and lo-
cal action, the Harvard Forum has
just discussed the question, "Resolved
that beer shall not be served at class
functions." The vote stood 75 to 75.
This question was propounded at the
Harvard Forum's last regular meeting,
and after a heated and strenuous de-
bate upon the subject, a vote was tak-
en, which resulted in a numerical
deadlock. The chairman of the meet-
ing, exercising commendable discre-
tion and caution, refused to commit
himself, and the matter was undecided.
One ardent agitator held that the cus-
tom was permissible as long as the
student was given his choice between
beer and ginger ale. This view seem-
ed to meet with universal approval.
Harvard may serve tea between
halves, and watersin individual drink-
ing cups, but her social functions are
at least without the annoying restric-
tions of a watchful Michigan supreme
court. Then too, there has been no
Straight bill introduced in the vicinity
around dear old Cambridge, Mass., and
the common council is Treported to be
inactive.

MAKE KNOWN BASEBALL DATES
Coach Macklin of M. A. C. spent yes-
terday in Ann Arbor conferring with
Athletic Director Bartelme, and al-
though no definite or official announce-
ment was made following the confer-
ence, it is understood that a track'
meeting between M. A. C. and the
Michigan fresh may result.
It always has beeii the policy of the
Lansing institutiola to send its track
team against the yearlings, but they
refused this season, and yesterday's
meeting it is thought, may have ad-
justed the difficulties.
Although nothing has been learned
through local authorities concerning
the Michigan baseball schedule, an-
nouncement has been made in Lan-
sing to the effect that there will be
the three customary baseball games
between Michigan and M. A. C. The
first is scheduled for May 15 and will
be played in Lansing. The other two
are booked for May 28 and 29, using
Ferry field as the setting.
It has also been stated in Lansing
that the 1915 football game between
the two institutions will be played on
October 23 here in Ann Arbor. As far
as the Lansing announcement goes,
there seems to be but one game sched-
uled, instead of a renewal of the three
year contract.

and continue through April 1. Three
of the best-known educational author-
ities obtainable, Prof. E. L. Thorn-
dike, Teachers' College, Columbia uni-
versity, Prof. L. D. Coffman, School of
Education, University of Illinois andt
Mr. S. A. Curtis, Bureau of Education-
al Research, Detroit, have been secur-
ed to conduct the institute,
The Michigan Schoolmaster's Club,
composed largely of high school prin-
cipals and teachers, and the Michigan
Academy of Science will meet In Ann
Arbor on March 31, and it is expected
a large number of members of these
organizations will enroll in the insti-
tute. The purpose of the course is to
acquaint Michigan educators with the
newest methods and theories of educa-
tion, as they have been developed in
the best schools of the country.
Lectures, practical demonstrations,
round table discussions and confer-
ences have been arranged for by the
educational department. School sup-
ervision and experimental tests for
reading will be discussed on Monday
March 29, elementary curriculum mak-
ing and arithmetical problems on
Tuesday, qualities of merit of teachers+
and history on Wednesday and causes
of failure among teachers and disci-
pline on Thursday.
All meetings will be held in Saray
Caswell Angell hall, and admissionI
will be free. Members pf the faculty,
high school teachers and stgdents in

REMAINING TARGETS OF MAT11I
TO RE SHOT THIS AFTERNOONI
Seven men in the rifle match with
Idaho shot their strings yesterday
afternoon, leaving the remaining three
targets to be shot this afternoon before
the completion of the Idaho encounter.+
The five high men from yesterday's
seven have a total of 913 which is
about 10 better than was done by the1
five men who have had significant
scores in the match of last week.

our present course is to invite disas-
ter; the same disaster as, or worse
than, that which we met when we en-
tered the Civil war and the Spanish-
American war, with soft, untrained
armies, thus needlessly wasting thous-
ands of lives."
The speaker was the Hon. Lindley
M. Garrison, secretary of war, inter-
preting and enlarging upon the pub-
lication of his annual report. His re-
port emphasized two principal rec-
ommendations, in increasing the reg-
ular army by 25,000 and to bring up to
full strength the existing units of the
mobile army in continental United
States, which has been depleted in
order to garrison our outlying depen-
dencies.
Congressman A. P. Gardner, who
speaks Monday night at the Whitney,
like Secretary Garrison, is one of the
few men in the government today who
has taken a decided stand against the
present military and naval policy of;
*ur country. For years Mr. Gardner
has been a disciple of national prepar-
edness, lining up our army and navy
against the armies and navies of Eu-
rope in battle array, and drawing con-
clusions as to the outcome, of such
combats.
Tickets for lMr. Ggrdner's lecture on

FRES II ENGINEERS ATTEMPT TO

Group leaders of the fresh engineers
met Thursday night to discuss the bet-

force in the college of engineering,
Thursday's meeting being the first of
a series which were decided upon by
the leaders in order that a means of
unifying the classes might be institizt
ed.
"Though there is still room for im-
provemieot, tie mentor system has
begu a grpt ruccess, in the college of;

The squad is in good physical shape,

started with an entry list of 219 men,
will be run off this afternoon when
Doctor May starts the first event ,in
the inter-class track meet to be held
at Waterman gym at 3:00 o'clock this
afternoon.
Intramural Director Rowe held pre-
liminaries in two events scheduled for
this afternoon's program, 27 men being
eliminated from the number of entries
for the half-mile and 25 entries being
scratched from the list of runners in
the quarter-mile. . All men who failed
to answer to their names when the en-
try list was called for the two events
are considered eliminated from fur-
ther competition in the meet.
No preliminaries were run in the
mile yesterday afternoon, only 12 men
reporting at the scheduled time, and it
being decided that preliminaries were
unnecessary. The 12 candidates are.
the only eligible men for this after-
noon's meet in that event.
Two heats were run in the lUalP-
mile, six men qualifying in the first.
heat and five in the second. A third
heat was run against time, the men
who beat the time in the best of the
former heats being allowed to enter
in the finals today. Mattsop and
Dence qualified in the time trials, the
former finishing first in 2 minutes 9
seconds.
It was necessary to run three elbim'
nation heats in th5 quarter-mile, the-
first three men in each heat qualifying
for the finals, to be run this afternoon.
The men who took firsts in their heats
were Campbell, Kruger and Darnell,
Campbell making the record for the
day with the time of 57 1-5 seconds.
The baseball men's relay which was
slated for production at the time of
the class meet has been called off by
Coach Lundgren.
The summaries for yesterday affTer-
noon's preliminaries follow:
Half-mile: First heat-Wolf, Dillon,
Miller, Davidson, Alden, Ruble; sec-
ond heat-Martin, Davis, Scott, Darn-
ell, Daniels; time heat-Mattson and

Wednesday afternoon at 4:00 o'clock,

HOLDING OF SPRING EXHIBIT
STILL DEBATED BY ENGINEERS
Although Dean M. E. Cooley, of the
college of engineering, and 0. W. Hall,
president of the senior engineer class,
have not yet conferred to make a for"
mal decision in regard to the holding
of Michigan's spring engineering ex-

hibit, it is now almost certain that no
effort will be made this year to give
the exhibition.
The demonstration probably will be
given every two years, beginningswith
next year, since it was the opinion of
the faculty members and students who
took part in last year's that better re-
sults would probably be secured if the
show were given less frequently.

Unquestionably, some of the finest and
most thoughtful alibis that have come
to the attention of the Michigan au-
thorities since that polite, formal,
though positive refusal which was is-

duly received and recorded.

reason. Defeat for one's Varsity at the
