cement Is Official; Executive
immittee of. Board in
Control Has Passed
Upon Matter

Evlents in

Which Cinder Men
Part Not Definitely
Decided Yet


Athletic Director Bartelme announc-
ed yesterday afternoon that Michigan
would be represented at the A. A. U.
indoor championships, which will be
Aield in Chicago on April 3.
This announcement is official, as the
executive committee of the board in
control of athletics has passed upon
the matter. Confirmations and denials
of this, action have been flitting about
the campus for th'e past week, al-
though yesterday's statement was the
first official remark that has escaped
from headquarters.
Coach Farrell stated that although
ie had not decided as yet just who
would make the trip, he believed that
the squad would be a small one. Con-
siderable credit has been given to
'Tiny" Kohler in bringing about Nich-
igan's entrance, because, since her
withdrawal from the western confer-
ence, collegiate athletic affairs which
have been slated in Chicago have been
viewed by local authorities rather
doubtfully. Kohler journeyed to
Ann Arbor from Chicago and was here
last week end..
The Wolverine squad's performance
will be watched with considerable in-
terest, both by local track followers
and by conference colleges. In just
what events Michigan will take part,
and who will represent tlie Maize and
Blue," could not be ascertained defi-
nitely yesterday, as Coach Farrell had
not decided.
Despite the unpropitious weather
conditions, the squad including the
middle distance runners who are can-
didates for the two possible teams
which may be sent to the Drake re-
lays, worked out on Ferry field yester-
day afternoon. Outdoor work will
greatly aid the squad -which is sent to
Chicago, as the meet there is held in
the Patten gym, in which outdoor con-
ditions are reproduced as accurately
as they can be, and still nominally be

That Disregard of Rules Will
Not Be Tolerated
"Before I ask this question," said I.
C. Johnson, '16, at the meeting of the
Forum at the Union fast night, where
the "five-mile act" was under discus-
sion, "I want to state that I believe in
ultimate prohibition. A. few years ago
the citizens of Ann Arbor voted to
have the city remain wet. At the pres-
ent time, we have a law here prohib-
iting student drinking. Now if the
"five-mile act" -is passed, will the vot-
ers of Ann Arbor, who went on record
as in favor of the saloon, elect local
officials who will enforce this law? If
"blind pigs" are allowed, the situation
here will be much worse than it is at
One much mooted question was the
probability of road houses being es-
tablished near Ann Arbor, if the act
were passed. "I believe that the pas-
sage of this bill will mean that such
places will come," stated R. C. Bar-
num, '15, "and that would bring in
conditions infinitely worse than the
present. Men who now go down town.

for a week, and when they go to these
outside places, debauchery will be the
result. If we want to leave a good

would mean worse conditions,"

Opponents Trained by Michigan Gmid.
uate to Fight Varsity with
Her Own Weapons
For the first time in the history of
the two institutions, Michigan and Illi-
nois will meet in debate at 8:00 o'clock
tonight in University Hall, an event
doubly significant in that it will also
mark the opening of the new Mid-west
league, embracing the universities of
Michigan, Wisconsin and Illinois.
According to local authorities, the
contest tonight "promises to be the
hardest battle ever waged here on the
platform." Two of the Illinois men are
experienced debaters having encoun-
tered both Ohio and Wisconsin in an-
other league. The Illinois men, more-
over, like the Wisconsin team which;
Michigan's negative will be pitted
against at Madison tonight, have been

40 minutes last night, 10 perspiring
athletes scientifically and systematical-

the so-called basketball game between
two teams chosen from the Varsity

The -final score was 21 to 11, the
"Roehmers" being returned victors
over the "Bastianites." For the victors,
"Rummy" Roehm and "Maully" Maul-

real basketball. Rehor, playing center
on the same team, startled the onlook-
ers by his remarkable form, his drib-

little less than awe-inspiring.-
For the defeated team, Kohr, Schultz,

performers, although the whole team

Plans for Enlargement of Waterman
Gym Referred to Committee,
Which Will Report at
April Meetlng,
Receive Numerous Gifts and Ratify"
Several Faculty Chianges.;
Grant 32 Degrees
Action in regard to the proposed en-
;largemelit of Waterman gymnasium,
control of the new resideice halls for
women, faculty changes and the grant-i
ing of degrees, occupied the greater
share of the attention of the board of
regents, at their regular March meet-j
ing held yesterday.
Plans and specifications for the en-
largement of Waterman gymnasium]
were referred to the committee on
buildings and grounds. The committee
was given power to act, and will report
at the April meeting of the board.
The plans drawn up by H. J. Weeks,
'03-'06E, and the committee, call for'
an addition to the men's gymnasium,,
either at the west end of the present
building, or at both the east and west
ends. The proposed addition will give
increased room for every phase of thei
indoor work, with greatly improved
arrangements for shower baths in the1
basement. The plans also contain1
specifications for a 10-lap running
track, in place of the 14-lap affair that
is now in use. The committee on
buildings and grounds was given pow-
er to accept bids for the addition; and
will probably make some announce-
ment in this regard, within a few days.
-.Table Request to Pay Debt ;
The board tabled the request of the1
alumni advisory council, asking that
the regents pay the $3,999 that is still1
due on the debt incurred in building

Alumni Memorial hall.
No action was taken on the request
of the Polish National alliance for the
appointment of a professor of the Pol-
ish language in the university. The
fact was brought out in the request
that there are now 300,000 persons of
Polish descent in the State of Michi-
The board decided to dispense with
the annual commencement dinner, one
of the traditional features of com-
mencement week for more than 20
years. In . place of the dinner, an
alumni luncheon will be held on Wed-
nesday of commencement week.
Several Gifts Received
A number of gifts were received by
the board at yesterday's meeting. Hen-
ry Gralle, of Chicago, presented the
university hospital with a fund of
$1,000, the interest on this fund to be
used for patients in the children's
ward. The collection of slides, re-

Two Students Are Disciplined
Two engineering students were di
