core at 15 to 6 with the boilermakers

argely responsible for the engineers'
cores in the first period, the for-

The dents showed an inclination to

hile the engineers counted eight and
revented the molar men from making

Dean Cooley and Prof. Allen
Speakers at Toiifts

English and History Professors
Join Students in Fourth


Preparations have been completed
for the fourth faculty night to be held
at the Michigan Union, at 7:30 o'clock
tonight, for faculty members of the
history and English departments, and
for "any student in the university who
wishes to get better acquainted with
these men.
Among those who have been invited,
and who expect to attend, are: Profes-
sors L. A. Strauss, J. S. P. Tatlock,
and F. S. Gingerich, of the English de-
partment; in the history department,
Professors C. H. Van Tyne, A. L. Cross,
and E. R. Turner. Many others of the
faculty of the two departments have
also signified their intentions of at-
tending, according to C. H. Lang, '15,
and L. K. Friedmann, '15, who have
been appointed to take charge of the
Three previous affairs have been
given respectively for the civil and
mechanical engineering, the econom-
ics, and the rhetoric departments, and
each of the gatherings has been a
markedesuccess according to the men'
who attended.
Informality will be emphasized at
the rest of the meetings of this, sort,;
no speeches or program being previ-
ously arranged. Much of the time will
be spent in introductions.
Minnesota Club Will Admit Women
Minnesota students introduced a new
method of dealing with the fair sex
as to membership in state clubs at a
meeting at the Union last night. A
unanimous vote of the members pres-'
ent made all Gopher state women hon-
orary members of the club. Election
of officers resulted as follows: presi-
dent, John F. Scott, '16L; vice-presi-
dent, Levi M. Hall, '15L; treasurer,
Nathan A. Cook, '17E; secretary, Jos-
eph F. Boyle, '15L. A social commit-'
teV will be appointed to arrange for
a smoker to take place some time be-
fore the spring holidays.

Coach Sends Squad to Ferry Field in
Preparation for Drake
Relay Races
Active outdoor training for the Drake
relay races began yesterday after-
noon when Coach Farrell hustled his
charges onto Ferry field for the first
time this season.
The squad consisted for the most
part of candidates for the two possible
relay teams which will be sent to Des
Moines. A few others were on hand,
although outside of, the milers and
half milers, the number was extreme-
.ly limited. Those who were absent,
either through the lack of an invitation
or for other reasons, need have no
cause for complaint, however, for ac-
cording to some of the tryouts, the
zephyrs that whisked about Ferry field,
felt as though they had all apparently
hurried down directly from the north
pole. The workout consisted of mere-
ly the preliminary jogging.
The performance of the two Chicago
milers who finished first and second in
last Saturday's indoor conference
struggle, and who ran under 4:30 at-
tracted some attention. This excel-
lent showing would indicate that the'
Windy City athletes possessed a pair
of pretty fast milers, and they may!
prove Michigan's big rivals at the
Drake race, if the coach decides to en-
ter a mile team, and this seemps likely
from the present indications.
Captain Reindel Endeavors to Secure
Matches with Nearby Clubs
for Early Practice
On the strength of the showing of '
the freshmen in the All-Comers tennist
tournament last fall, two games pavet
already been scheduled for the year-a
ling racquet wielders, each of the con-
tests being arranged with Scott High1
of Toledo. The first match will bea
played in the Buckeye town on May 1,
and the return match is scheduled for
the Ferry field tennis courts at the
time of the Interscholastic meet, May
Tentative plans are now being made
by Captain Reindel to secure matchesa
with tennis clubs near Ann Arbor, it1
being the object of the captain to give
his men a test of actual match playt
before going east. At present the plans
are to schedule the Detroit Tennis club]
for May 5, and the Toledo Tennis club
for May 8. If possible, these and re-
turn matches will be arranged.
Framed and hung in the hallway of

Prof. Wenley Speaks at Vesper Service
Prof. R. M. Wenley of the philosophy
department will give the last of a se-,
ries of Lenten vesper talks at 4:30
o'clock Friday afternoon in St. An-
drew's church on the subject, "Nature,
Society and the Ideal in Their Mutual
Relations within Religion." This will
be the final talk in a series which Pro- ;
fessor Wenley has been giving on the
general subject of "Religion,-A Need
in Common Life." All interested in
the lecture are invited to attend.

Following a new system of try-outs
and the selection of plays, the Comedy
club will commence on the selection
of next year's play and cast immedi-
ately after spring vacation. Officers
who will set the work afoot, will be
elected at that time.
By the new plan, try-outs will b'e an-
nounced at an early date. Those desir-
ing to enter in the competition for
parts will appear before a committee,
that will assign them parts in some
play. They will then be given three
weeks in which to work on their as-
signed tasks, at the end, of which time
they will enter the first try-outs for
the cast. Those surviving the first tri-
als will have to go through another
session at a later date before being
finally selected.
The prospects for a trip to Jackson
this spring are still promising, accord-
ing to officers of the Jackson club,'
which is cooperating with the dramat-
ic club of the high school of that city,
to guarantee the necessary receipts for
the trip. H. M. Marsh, '15, and Harry
Sparks, '17E, who are pushing the trip
for the Prison city club, have received
no word from there in regard to the
trip, but state that a number of guar-
antors have been secured by those
working at the other epd of the line.
Union Members Can Obtain Numbers

Public Starts Saturday
Up to this time, 852 slips for ticketst
to the Union opera have been given outI
to members of the Union. Any Uniont
member who has not yet obtained a
slip entitling him to seats may get one1
by applying at the box office in Hill1
auditorium between 11:00 and 12:001
o'clock today.
The seat sale for the general publicI
will start at 10:00 o'clock tomorrow,t
when anyone may obtain tickets at thet
box office in Hill auditorium, After1
2:00 o'clock on Saturday, seats will be
sold only at the box office at the Whit-
ney theater, and will continue on sale
through the various performances ofI
the opera.
A number of good tickets are still
left, especially for Wednesday nighti
and the matinee performance on Sat-
urday. The biggest demand for the<
pasteboards hasbeen for Friday night.
Director Eugene B. Sanger, of the
Michigan Union opera, has been se-I
cured to speak to junior engineers at
their next assembly at 10:00 o'clockI
Friday morning in room 348, engineer-'
ing building. Dean M. E. Cooley, of
the engineering college, has also
agreed to give a short talk.I
Librarian T. W. Koch will deliver an
illustrated lecture at the sophomore
engineer's assembly, which will be
held the same day at 11:00 o'clock. A
special effort will be made by the
group leaders to collect class dues at
this meeting.
Prof. A. H. White, of the chemical
department, who has charge of the
trip which will be taken during thef
spring vacation by the chemical engi-
neers, said yesterday that although a
large number were planning on taking
the trip, he desires to know defi-
nitely the name of each man who in-
tends to go in orderto determine the
number of outsiders who desire to ac-

company the party.
Places of interest to all students of!
chemistry or engineering will be vis-
ited in the vicinity of Chicago.
Prof. JI. Levi Lectures at Ypsilantr
Prof. Moritz Levi, of the French de-
partment, lectured last night at Ypsi-
lanti on, "The French Drama of To-
day." A group of clergymen, and pro-
fessional and business men were pres-
ent at the talk.

Meeting tomorrow to Canvass Student
Sentiment on Conteniplhted
Five-Mile Act
It is felt by some of the student body
that the question for discussion at the
meeting of the Forum at the Union to-
morrow night, "Is the Adoption of the
Straight Bill Desirable?" is a new one.
As far as Michigan is ,concerned, the
question is new, but 16 states now
have such a law. Prof. Dean Clark,
of the University of Illinois, stated that
the consumption of lijuo t Cham-
paign had decreased 75 per cent since
the passage of the act.
Harry D. Parker, '16L, will act as
presiding officer at the meeting, and
will give a brief resume of the topic
before the discussion begins.
This discussion should be of particu-
lar interest, in view of the fact that
the bill will be reported out of commit-
tee today for action on the floor of the
House of Representatives at Lansing.
Pharmics and Junior Engineers Battle
for Campus Championship
With the pharmics and the junior
engineers billed to run against each
other this afternoon for the relay
championship of the campus, the inter-
class struggles will terminate. The
match is scheduled to start at 4:30
Judging from past perform Axces,
the title will go to the pharmics, the
quartet from this department having
hung up the two fastest records that
have been made this season. The
pharmic department is grouped into a
single unit on such athletic affairs,
but Captain Robinson of the pharmic
team points with pride to the fact that
his entire relay outfit is composed of

5. That an election board be pro-
vided which shall include representa-
tives from each organization and class
This plan will be submitted to each
organization and class on the campus,
the details worked out, and changes
made as seem necessary.
The share each sophomore class is
to bear in the indemnity for Russel C.

The motion of Henry C. Rummel,
'14-'16L, to stage a big send-off when
the track team leaves for the eastern
intercollegiate this year at Pennsylva-
nia, was adopted, and a committee will
be appointed to make the necessary
arrangements, when the time comes.
The Varsity band will be asked to aid
in the undertaking.
A committee will be appointed to
ascertain by seeking the opinion of
the campus societies and individual
students, what the sentiment is rela-
tive to taking the ban off of open cam-
paigning at elections.
Plans have been made for a reunion
of the men of the 1913 lit class to be
held at 5:00 o'clock tomorrow night at
the Union. More than 90 cards have
been sent out to Ann Arbor and Detroit
alumni, and it is expected that a large
number will attend the affair.
The reunion is given as a prejimi-
nary for the general class reunion
which will be held in Ann Arbor in
June. It is planned to appoint com-
mittees at this preliminary gathering
to foster the plans for the larger meet-
ing, and it is possible that these small
gatherings will be made into a series
of nWonthly dinners.
