Asa C. Balwin Lectures on "The
Survey of Alaskan Boundary",
at ,:00 O'clock in Hill
Explorer Second Man to Accomplish
Feat of Scaling Lofty.
Mt. St. Elias
University students will have the
opportunity of hearing what is reput-
ed as being one of the most vivid and
entertaining lectures ever given on
Alaskan life and the great northern
problems, when Asa C. Baldwin, gov-
ernment lecturer, gives his illustrated
lecture on "The Survey of the Alaskan
Boundary" in Hill auditorium at 8:00
o'clock tonight. Perhaps no other
man has become so closely connect-
ed and familiar with the work in the
north as has Mr. Baldwin, and his ex-
perience qualifies him to speak as an
authority on this question.
A large number of slides, illustrat-
ing Alaskan life, and some 1,500 feet
of moving pictures will give the lec-
ture a tone of reality. The picturesque
snow-fields, glaciers, mining and fish-
ing industries, and pictures of natives,
will aid in giving the audience a clear-
er conception of conditions in the
northern region.
The survey, which was one of the
biggest problems of its kind ever un-
dertaken, was completed only last
year. Mr. Baldwin acted in the ca-
pacity of chief of the American party
which worked in conjunction with a
similar party from the Canadian gov-
ernment. The undertaking also neces-
sitated a climb of 17,000 feet up the
rugged slopes of Mt. St. Elias, a feat
which had hitherto only been accom-
plished by Duke Abruzzi of Italy. Pic-
tures of dangerous mountain climbs
and difficult surveying problems en-
countered during the seven years, will
be shown on the screen. It will be
remembered that Israel C. Russell, for-
merly professor of geology in the Uni-
versity of Michigan, made several at-
tempts to scale Mt. Elias and nearly
The lecture is given under the aus-
pices of the university non-resident
lecture fund, and no admission will
be charged. While in Ann Arbor, Mr.
Baldwin will be the guest of the Beta
Theta Pi fraternity.

basement of the economics building at
the beginning of next year, when the
science classes now occupying the

And, in conclusion, we beg to repeat,

At a meeting of the nominating com-
mittee of the Students' Christian as-
sociation held yesterday afternoon,
nominations were made for officers of
that organization for the coming year.
The men nominated are: President,
George McMahon, '16, P. C. Wagner,
'16E, and Lewis C. Reimann, '17L;
vice-president, P. V. Ramsdell, '16, W.
R. Hunt, '16, and H. D. Parker, '16L;£
secretary-treasurer, P. C. Lovejoy, '16,
Merle Doty, '18, and M. W. Welch, '17.
These nominations will be voted upon
at an election to be held on Saturday,
March 27.
The Y. M. C. A. cabinet upon rec-
ommendation of the nominating com-
mittee adopted a resolution which will
throw the election open to all men on
the campus regardless of whether they
are members of the association or not.
The cabinet thought that by the adop-
tion of this plan a more complete can-
vass of campus sentiment could be se-
cured, in view of the fact that it is
the purpose of the S. C. A. to be a stu-
dent organization accessible to all
Michigan men and women.
The following committee was ap-
pointed to take charge of the election:
irwin C. Johnson, '16, Y. R. Altsheler,
'17, and Phil Hall, '17L.
Further nominations may be made
upon presentation of a petition con-
taining the name of the nominee, and
signed by 25 members of the associa-
tion. Such petitions must be in the
hands of the committee in charge of
the election not later than Tuesday.

Will Contest with Seven Colleges for
Honors in State Orator-
!Cal Contest at
Local Rooters to Face Ypsi Men in
Cheering Contest for
Michigan launches her campaign for
the National Peace Oratorical contest
honors at 8:00 o'clock tonight,
in University Hall, when N. E. Pinney,
'16, takes the floor as the university's
representative in the State Peace Ora-
torical contest.
The seven colleges which are enter-
ed are Michigan, Hope, Albion, Hills-
dale, M. A. C., Michigan State Normal
and Olivet, and teir respective rep-
resentatives are N. E. Pinney, '16, John
J. DeBore, Barr M. Berry, Harold A.
Van Kirk, George W. Cochran, Arthur
A. Metcalf and Herbert B. Thompson.
Rivalry between Michigan and the
State Normal is especially keen, and
the latter intends to carry the evening
by the enthusiasm of its delegation.
Albion is also reported to be planning
to send substantial support to her ora-
tor, and the local oratorical authorities
are devoting considerable effort to
raising a cheering section.
Tomorrow afternoon will be taken
up by the annual business meeting of
the State Oratorical association. Prof.
W. W. Johnson, head of the M. A. C.
English department, Professor King,
of the M. A. C. oratory department,
Prof. H. B. Larrabee, of Hillsdale,
Prof. P. H. Hembt of Albion, Prof. F.
B. McKay of Michigan State Normal,
Prof. P. A. Nadal, of Olivet, and Prof.
J. B. Nykerk, of Hope, will be present
at the 'meeting.
Doors will open at 7:30 o'clock, and
will be closed during each of the
speeches. The front part of the south
side of the parquet will be reserved
for the State Normal contingent. The
corresponding portion of the north
side will be occupied by the Michigan
rooters, who are to assemble shortly
before the doors open. Admission will
be 25 cents.
Farrell Points Out Fact That 30 of 40
Tallies Scored at Syracuse
Were Won by '17 Men
Although it is rather early tofigure
on next year's track team, Coach Far-
rell points with significance to the
fact that of the 40 points scored
against Syracuse, 30 were contributed
by sophomores. Of the remaining 10,
all but a point and a half, were cred-
ited to juniors.
In the 40-yard dash, Lapsley scored
a point and a half, the only contribu-
tion towards Michigan's total of 40
points which was not turned in by a
sophomore or* junior. No less than
four of the sophs pulled down first
places, O'Brien, Corbin, Cross and Car-
roll attaining this distinction. Wilson,
the pole vaulter barely failed to add
an undisputed first place, for on two
of his attempts to clear 12 feet, he
just dislodged the bar and that was

laps, with Captain Smith, a junior'
caring for the final sprint.
Last June Michigan lost 23 of the
29 points that she scored in the east-
ern intercollegiates by graduation.
This was the biggest loss that was
sustained by any team that was enter-
ed, more than doubling the loss suf-
fered by the majority of the compet-
ing colleges. This year she should
lose none by that method except
Johnny Ferris.

Nothing Definite Can Be Ascertained
Through Local Track
Although nothing definite could be
learned through local track authori-
ties, it has been rumored that Michi-
gan will be represented in the Cen-
tral Association A. A. U. indoor track
championships, which will be held in
Chicago, April 3.
All of the big western colleges will
probably send teams to compete, and
if a squad from here is entered, an
excellent line could be drawn upon
the strength of the Wolverines as com-
pared with her former conference riv-
als. The meet will be held in the Pat-
ten gymnasium. Absolutely nothing
could be learned through the Michigan
track authorities with respect to Mich-
igan's possible participation.
Provided that Coach Farrell does
take a squad to the Windy City for
this event, the work of the local ath-
letes would be followed with more
than usual interest, as Michigan has
done but comparatively little track
work in the west since she severed her
relations with the conference.

Dr. Frank W. Gunsaulus, president
of the Armour Institute pf Technology,
has been secured as the speaker at the
Hill auditorium service to be held at
7:00 o'clock next Sunday evening. The
service, which will be featured by a
special musical program, will be under
the auspices of the Presbyterian
church, and in accordance with the
plan which has been followed at the
rest of the union, services this year,
the evening services in all of the 10-
cal churches will be omitted.
Dr. Gunsaulus preaches each Sunday
to great groups of people at the Audi-
torium theater, Chicago, and present
day critics rank him as one of the
greatest preachers in America. He is
also well-known for his work in con-
nection with his administration of the
Armour institute, and it is expected
that his address will be of especial in-
terest to university men and women
on account of his long experience with
the work of that organization.
Senior Engineers Hold Class Dinner
Senior engineers held their class
dinner at the Union last night. Her-
schel C. Smith, '15E, acted as toast-
master for the occasion and Prof. H. G.
Raschbacher, of the civil engineering
department, was the faculty speaker
on .the program. O. W. Hall, president
of the class and Gordon B. McCabe,
'i5E, composed the rest of the list of

Alterations in the present. by-laws
governing the holding of elections to
the board of directors of the athletic
association, were adopted by the di-
rectorate yesterday afternoon at a
meeting which was also featured by
the passing of a resolution recommend-
ing to the board in control that the
members of a winning Wolverine re-
lay team at the Drake games this year
be awarded the Varsity track "M."
The new election regulations provide
for a change in the time of holding
the mid-year voting, and also for the
avoiding of all the eligibility difficul-
tie.s which this year caused serious
trouble among the newly-chosen di-
rectors. Under the altered by-laws
the mid-year elections will be held on
the second Saturday of the second
semester, instead of before the exam-
inations.' They also provide for the
passing on the eligibility of all the
candidates by the proper faculty com-
mittee before the names are placed in,
At the mid-year elections the Varsi-
ty football manager, the secretary and'
treasurer are to be chosen. At the
May voting the baseball, track and
interscholastic manager will be picked.
Meetings of the athletic association
will be held immediately following the
two elections.
The resolution urging the award of
the coveted track "'" to the-members
of a winning quartette at Des Moines
this year, will be presented to the
board in control at its meeting tomor-
row afternoon and evening. The di-
rectorate took the action yesterday fol-
lowing a discussion of the long list of
meets in which the track men will
have taken part this year, and the
class of 'competition which they will
be pitted against at the Drake games.
The power of the directors in this
matter, according to the officials, is
merely as a recommending body, and
for this reason the final decision in
the matter rests with the higher board.
Fresh Lits Will Elect Officers Today
Fresh lits will hold a meeting at
4:00 o'clock this afternoon, in room
101 economics building, for the pur-
pose of voting for class president and
vice-president. S. J. Carrigan and G.
B. Daniels are the candidates for pres-
idency, and Ruth MacLachlan and
Rowena Bastian are the nominees for
the vice-presidency.
Arrangements Made for B. V. D. Dance
Plans have been completed for the
Barristers, Vulcans and tDruids dance,
to be held at the Union next Friday-
night. The Wright Saxophone trio
will furnish the music.,

Opening shots were fired this week
in a campaign being waged by local
merchants with the aid of the local
police and Burns' operatives against
.worthless check passers and forgers
among students of the university.
Thomas B. McCoun, '17, was arrested
Wednesday and fined $23.70 by Justice
W. G. Doty, before whom he was ar-
raigned on a charge of obtaining mon-
ey under false pretenses. Two checks,
which had been cashed at Wagner &
Co., and at the Majestic billiard hall
with no deposits to back them, were
brought as evidence.
More than a week ago, when a flood
of worthless checks came in, mer-
chants on Main and State streets start-
ed to work quietly to investigate. The
police were notified, and finally detec-
tives from the Burns bureau were call-
ed in to locate the guilty persons. Last
Friday suspicion in regard to several
"no funds" checks seemed to point to-
ward McCoun. Saturday morning
when the police went to apprehend
him, they found that he had been call-
ed home by a telegram announcing the
death of a relative. McCoun returned
from his home in Frankfort, Kentucky,
on Wednesday and was immediately
placed under arrest.
That this is only the beginning of a
leaning up of" the worthless check
name was expressed yesterday by a
local merchant, who showed a list of
21 merchants who had lost money on
checks. Nineteen out of this number
are known to be forged checks, con-
taining names selected at random
from the Students' Directory. These
checks have been made out in two dif-
ferent handwritings andtwere
passed for the most part at the drug
stores, shoe stores and furniture
stores. The offenders may be traced
and apprehended within a few days.
Bulgarian Ambassador Will Talk Here
Hon. Stephen Panaretoff, Bulgarian
ambassador to the United States, will
come to Ann Arbor on April 23 when
he will speak in Memorial hall on,
"The Development of the Bulgarian

bassador ever officially sent to this
country from Bulgaria, and is consid-
ered to be the highest living authority
on Bulgarian philology.
