Effort Being Made to Send Two Mile
Relay Team to Take Part in
Drake Carnival
In an effort to build up a two mile
relay team to compete in the Drake
relay carnival, in addition to the four
mile team which will probably be en-
tered, Coach Farrell will begin work-
ing many of his quarter milers over
the 880 route today to see whether
they show enough promise to warrant
an entrance in the two mile event.
Burby, Max Robinson, Fontana,John,
Huntington and possibly one or two
others will be shifted to the half mile
this week, in an effort to send two
teams to the Des Moines event. The
present prospects are good for a mile
relay team, with Carroll and Ufer as
the two mainstays.
Carroll ran a sensational mile at
Syracuse Saturday night, romping
away with the field in handy fashion,
and completing the distance over three
seconds faster than any Syracuse man
had ever done. He finished 50 yards
ahead, lapping a couple of men, and
was begging Farrell to let him enter
the 880, almost before the perspiring
Orange runners had crossed the line.
Fox and Donelly can both step the
mile in pretty fast time, and Michigan
should boast of a fast four mile team.
However, with Carroll, Fox and Uferi
as the basis of a two mile team, a pret-i
ty fast quartet could be developed to1
compete in the two mile event. Far-.
rell will try to send a team to run in
both distances, if possible.,
Union Opera to Give Performance on:

April 9. This performance willb hec
given especially for the benefit of the
townspeople, although students will be
permitted to attend. The added per-l

Progress of Orient Will Give it Equal
Rank 100 Years Hence,
He Thinks
"We cannot have a purely business
relationship with the far East; we
must also be their friends," said Ham-
ilton Wright Mabie, in his lecture at
Hill auditorium last night. "There
have been prophesies of war with Ja-
pan within the next 20 years. . As a
matter of fact, Japan has never been
guilty of a single discourtesy to the
United States, and she has never vio-
lated a single treaty stipulation since
she came into the family of nations."
After touching upon the character-
istics of the eastern peoples, and es-
pecially noting their qualities of stoi-
cism, patience, discipline, patriotism,
courtesy and passion for education,
Mr. Mabie turned to a consideration of
relations between the occident and the
orient. He stated that the East would
rank within 100 years with any
of the western countries. Speaking of
China, he remarked, "China has begun
her progress, and though there may
be halts, setbacks or even tragedies,
the movement is started and will con-
tinue. If the supremacy 200 years
hence passes to Ohina, let'it pass. She
will acquire it only if she. shall be de-
serving of it, for the future field will
be free for all nations and fair."
Preparation for war, Mr. Mabie
pointed out, was of two kinds, the ma-
terial equipment and psychological at-
titude. The latter, he claimed, has'
been constantly growing, not as ai
result of actual antipathies, but as an
outcome of false ideas circulated and1
abetted by newspapers and alarmists.
"The press in Japan is even yellow-
er than in America, incredible 'as it
may seem. The institution is only
about 40 year old in Japan, and asf
Japanese journalists are very ener-
getic, publications are just as unreli-
able, and issue the same sort of lies1
as American papers. My chief injunc -
tion in this connection, is: Do not be-i
lieve a report concerning the Japanese
or Chinese until it is verified. Wheni
it has been confirmed, exercise your
judgment as you may see fit."s
In concluding,- Mr. Mabie pointed to
the employment of justice, imagination
and courtesy as the key to our future
conduct towards the East which, he
said, has ever offered, and still offers,i
unparalled opportunities for the ac-
complishment of America's dream ofr
world-wide peace.
Elis Win Championship in Basketball

Iirst Applicants at Union Today Will.
Have Better Choice at
Opera Sale
Slips entitling the bearer to seats
for the Union opera, "All That Glit-
ters," will be given out for the first
time at the Union from 9:15 to 12:15
o'clock, and from 2:00 to 5:00 o'clock
today. The line will form at the side
entrance of the Union.
All who desire these slips must pre-
sent their membership tickets, and the
slips will be given out in order of ap-
plication. Those holding the slips with
the lowest numbers will ge the best

th. five produc ioins, to be given Wed-
ncsday, ThviridAu, Friday and Satur-

The only differing feature l:om last
year's distribution, will be that the
slips have on the back a schedule stat-
ing the time when they may be ex-
changed for tickets. The distribution
of slips will continue tonmorrow and
Thursday at the same time.
One example of the interest taken
in this year's opera is evidenced in a

At its April meeting, the board in
control of student publications will
choose a business manager and man-
aging editor for 1915 Students Direc-
tory. It is the policy of the board in
filling the positions on the publications
under its control to award them on
the basis of merit to those who have
served in minor positions on the pub-
lication to which the positions pertain.
It sometimes happens, however, that
no one who has served on the publi-
cation during one year is eligible or
capable of filling one of the leading
positions thereon for the ensuing year.
When either of these sets of circum-.
stances arise the board finds it neces-
sary to consider outside candidates.
This notice should not be considered
as an intimation that either of these'
situations will arise this year.
All applications for these positions
should be in the hands of Prof. F.
N. Scott on or before March 31 in or-
der to be considered. Each application
should contain a statement of the ex-
perience of the applicant and should
be accompanied by the applicant's ell-
gibility card and any letters of recom-
mendation which he may have.'

In the conte;st between the ph.ar-

of the freshman track 'team and one

the former aggregation, the dents nev-

will be eligible to enroll for the nov-
ices' event, which is slated to be run
off this Friday and Saturday in the
afternoon, and not in the evening as
was originally planned.
The pole vault in the interclass meet
will be run off at the time of the "Dub"
meet, the first three men to place in
that event winning numerals. All the
other events, scheduled for the "Dub"
meet, carry with them as prizes, differ-
ent varieties of such food as will coun-
teract all good effect on physical con-
dition, which training for the meet
may have had.
The trophies will be awarded in pro-
portion to the number of entries in
each event, the distribution of the food
being in accordance to the place in
which the men finish, under which sys-
tem first may receive nothing, and last

by the management. Because of the
fact that the number of prizes will
vary with the number of entries in
the event, Intramural Director Rowe
wishes no one to enter an event unless
he expects to actually take part in
that part of the program.
The program of events will include
the eight regular indoor events, high
and low hurdles, shot-put, 35-yard
dash, quarter, half and mile runs, and
the pole vault. In addition to these,
five more events have been added to,
the program, entries, being looked for
in rope-climbing, - dipping, chinning,
standing broad jump, and standing
high jump.
Doctor May will act in the capacity
of referee and starter, while Director
Rowe will be clerk-of-course. The oth-
er officials will be chosen from the
; Varsity track athletes.

Closer Relationship
Each one of the 160 foreign students
in the university has -received an invi-
tation to the Cosmopo-Night to be held
in the big room of the Union, at 7:30
o'clock tomorrow night. The idea of
the affair is to bring the foreign stu-
dents here into closer relationship.
with the Americans in the university.
The exact program for the enter-
tainment has not yet been announced,
but a few of the numbers have been
given out. George Moritz, '15, and
Chase B. Sikes, '16, will render a num-
her of songs, with Selden Dickenson,
'13-'15L, accompanying them .on the
piano. A game of shuttlecock, which
is described as Chinese calisthenics,,
will be played. There will be an exhi-
bition of Japanese fencing, and W. C.
Achi, '14-'17L, will sing some Ir vaian
Some American speaker will be se-
lected to give a short talk, andhe will
be answered by a foreigner. Smokes
and refreshments, consisting of punch
and wafers, will be served.
