Coming from behind in the second
half with a rush that ' is becoming
characteristic, the soph lit. basketball
team disposed of the junior dents, 30
to 19 last night, The fresh fits inflict-
ed a sound defeat upon the senior laws,
the score standing 25 to 11, while the
junior engineers contributed their usu-
al victory, the victims on this partic-
ular occasion being the senior dents,
and the score assuming the one-sided
proportion of a 32 to 11 count.
In the contest between the sopho-
more lits and the junior dents, the
quintet from the college of literature
fell behind in the first half, being in
possession of the small end of a 17 to
10 score. However, they began work
early in the last half, running their
total up to 30, while the sum total of

through the entire half. The score:

Michigan students will have an op-
portunity to air their views, concern-
ing fraternities when the Forum meets
at the Union at 7:30 o'clock tonight to
consider the question, "Is the Michigan
Campus Better for the Presence of
Fraternities?" Samuel Witting,'15, has
been selected to act as presiding of-
The fraternity question h'as not been
prominently before the student body
here for some time, but in some of the
states at the present time, the legis-
latures are taking up the matter.
In case of a lull in the discussion
on the priicipal topic of the evening,
any one of the minor subjects chosen
may be brought up. Those which have
been announced deal with the desira-
bility of the elimination of student
drinking, a question as to what shall
be done to stop the exit of talented
faculty men to other .universities, the
satisfaction to the student body of the
manner in which the athletic associa-
tion carries on its business and the
matter of the election of class officers.
Fresh lits failed to elect a president
and vice president at their meeting
yesterday, as a majority was not ob-
tained in either case. S. J. Carrigan
and G. B. Daniels are the candidates
for the presidency, while the nominees
for the vice-presidency are Ruth Mac-
Lachlan and Rowena Bastin. W. L,
Huss was elected baseball manager.
Final elections will be held in room

Junior Engineers and Senior Laws to
Run Tomorrow
In the only class relay race staged
yesterday afternoon, the pharmics won
from the junior laws. The scheduled
struggle between the junior engineers
and senior laws failed to materialize,
and will be held this afternoon.
The pharmics took yesterday's race
with considerable ease. Fischer went
out in the first two laps and piled up
an immense lead. With "Al" Robin-
son waiting to run the last lap, this
practically meant victory, and the
pharmics won handily, the time being
2:01. The teams were: pharmics-
Fischer, Smith, Dillon, Robinson; laws
-Eger, Hartt, Stiver, Stevens.

"No one could attend Mr. Baldwin's
lecture without appreciating the won-
derful beauty arkd interest of the coun-
try, which thro ws a spell over all of
us who have been there," said Walter
E. Fisher, ex-secretary of war and
president of the University Club of'
.Chicago, in sp'eaking of the lecture Mr..

Asa C. Baldwin will deliver in Hill au-
ditorium tomo rrow night.
Mr. Baldwin was chief of a party"
that spent seven years of difficult sur-'
veying and mountain climbing trying-
to locate the Alaskan boundary. Dur-
ing the seven years spent in the .nor-
thern regions, Mr. Baldwin succeeded
in obtaining a large number of slii'es
and moving pictures which illustrate
the life of the natives of Alaska ant
the great work that has been done
there. Such scenes as homes of the
natives, towns, the progress of agricul-
ture, mining industries, fisheries, gla-
ciers and snowfields are as interesting
as they are instructive. In addition
to this, more than 1,500 feet of moving
pictures will be shown.
This lecture is given under the aus-'

Plans have been completed by the
Michigan chapter of the Intercollegiate
Prohibition association for the holding
of a local oratorical contest on April
7. The subject of the orations is to be
some phase of the liquor question, and
contestants may speak either for or
against the different solutions of the
liquor problem offered by the adher-
ents of prohibition.
The contest which will be prelim-
inary to a state competition will
be open to any students,men or women,
in the university, with the condition
that those who intend to enter file
their applications not later than April
1, with R. B. Penzotti, '18H, secretary
of the local organization.
The winner of this contest will re-
ceive a sum of money not yet decided
upon, and he will also enter the state
contest and compete with several oth-
er Michigan institutions for an hon-
orarium of $50. The winner of this
contest is then privileged to enter a
further competition among several of
the surrounding states, and the victor
in this final trial is entered in compe-
tition at the national contest which oc-
curs late each spring at the time of the
aiational convention of the Internation-
a&I Prohibition association.

in the local Peace contest will be fol-
lowied as far as possible, and prelimi-
naries will not be held unless an ex-
