Weather Causes Coach to )eclare All
Practice Off Yesterday
Wind swept south Ferry field look-
ed so cold and forbidding yesterday
afternoon that Coach Lundgren de-
cided to give his warriors a respite in
the day's work, and declared all prac-
tice off for the Varsity baseball candi-
Some of the energetic ones donned
baseball togs, and decked out in sweat-
ers, started out for a cross country
run to improve their wind. Others
who had made ,) appearance before
the strike was called on by the coach,
took a couple of turns around the
track before quitting for the afternoon.
While practice was suspended yes-
terday afternoon, the regular work
will be resumed today, and every man
who was on the squad at the time the
men left the gym is required to report
for -practice at Ferry field this after-
Doubt still shrouds the case of Fer-
guson, who -has been confined in the
university hospital for the last four
days with streptococus, which has at-
tacked his ear. His case will be decid-
ed one way or the other by the early
part of next week.

When the curtain went up on the
performance offered by the Deutscher
Verein last night in Sarah Caswell
Angell hall, more than 400 students
and members of the faculty were in
the audience to witness the presenta-
tion of "Einer Muss Heiraten," which
was ably given by a cast of four mem-
bers of the organization. Nearly every
member of the faculty was present and
several pronounced the play, and
dance following one of the most suc-
cessful in the history of the Verein.
Owing to the illness of Harold J.
Sherman, '17, F. B. Wahr, '11, who
had charge of the play, stepped into
the role of Wilhelm, thus left vacant,
and successfully carried away the hon-
ors, playing his part exceedingly well
on such short notice. Ruth Wetman,
'15, made a favorable impression as
the aunt, Gertrude, while Mildred
Nuechterlein, '15, as the shy young
cousin, depicted the young German girl
admirably. Bernhard H. Dawson,'16, in
the role of the eccentric professor, won
a place with all lovers of acting by car-
rying his part with extraordinary
What was most pronounced in last
night's performance was the, accent of
all members of the cast. All are of
German descent, with the exception of
Dawson, but he carried away his share
of the honors.
After the play an informal reception
was held for members of the German
faculty, and their wives, giving the
students and their friends an oppor-
tunity to become better acquainted.
Music for the dance was furnished by
Ike Fisher's orchestra. Approximately+
60 couples were present, filling the
hall and reception rooms of Barbour
gym. Punch and wafers were served.
Prof. J. A. C. Hildner, of the German
department, and. Mrs. Hilder chap-
eroned the affair.
Registrar Bail Belivers Talk; Music
Norms Part of Program
While Sugar, Karr, and Levin thun-
dered out their arguments in the de-'
bate with Illinois in University Hall+
last night, about 40 Grand Rapids stu-
dents enjoyed themselves overhead in
the room of Alpha Nu literary society.'
Registrar Hall spoke on, "Remin-
iscences of Grand Rapids," recalling
interesting incidents in connection'
with his associates in the high school
there. Music was furnished by a quar-
tet composed of: Fred Sacia, 'i5E, Her-
bert A. Smith, grad., Peter Hartsvelt,1
'16, and Melvin Anderson, '17E. Chas.
Lowes, '16,. sang a solo.
The club decided to start an advis-
ory system for the benefit of Grand
Rapids students. A. dinner, to be giv-
en in the home city during the spring
holidays in connection with the associ-
ation of Grand Rapids alumni, was al-
so arranged. -

Several IDays


Director Sanger and General Chair-
man Baxter have decided that Harry
Kerr, '16, shall appear in "All That
Glitters," in the role of Dick, the son
of Franklin Jordan, the American mil-
lionaire. Kerr has been trying out for
the part for several days, and after he
had learned his lines and songs, was
chosen for the leading male role in
this year's opera.
But four productions will be staged
by the opera on the trip during spring
vacation, as the negotiations with the
other cities fell through. Toledo, Chi-
cago, Detroit and Saginaw, in the or-
der named, will witness appearances
of the opera.
The seat sale for the general public
will start at the Whitney theater at
2:00 o'clock today, and tickets for all
performances will be sold up to the
night of the last production. Friday-
night .has proved to be the popular
for the remaining shows.

The costumes and scenery for the
opera are scheduled to arrive in Ann
Arbor today, and this afternoon, Direc-
tor Sanger will hold what he terms a
"costume parade," when the cast and
chorus will appear for the first time in
costumes, in order to test their fit and
general appearance.
Director Sanger announced yester-
day that he would place the directions
and management of the opera in the
hands of Theron D. Weaver, '16E, the
stage manager, on Wednesday night,
and that he probably would leave for
the east on the night of the first ap-
Those who are to "put on" the spe-
cialty acts in the opera held a rehears-
al yesterday afternoon, and the com-
mittee and the director expressed
themselves as pleased with the result.

In Response to Coach1 Ilughiftt ' 4all,

Battery try outs for places on this
year's All-Fresh nine will take their
first workout at 1:00 o cioek this af-
ternoon in Waterman gym, in response
to Coach Hughitt's first call for active
work on the part of his candidates.
The squad which reported to tHugh-
itt at the first ee ingeof)yearling ~an
didates numbered 125, and with the
exception of pitchers and catchers, the
freshmen will probably not get any
workout until after the Easter holi-
days, when the ex-third baseman will
lead his charges out on Ferry field for
outdoor practice.
The squad this year is getting an
earlier start than the 1914 aggregation,
and with two weeks of preliminary
work for the battery men, the yearling
nine for the 1918 class should meet
with an even more successful season
than was experienced by the last
year's All-Fresh.

Building Materials
First actual tests in the experiments
being carried on by the mechanical
engineering department of the . engi-
neering department of the engineering
college in trying to ascertain the heat
conductivity of various building ma-

Since the big box was made for the

encountered a number of difficulties in
making the outfit efficient enough to
produce valuable results, but it is now
believed that the ammonia coils and

working order and will register the re-

.unior and Sophomore Engineers Start
Action to {et Consideration
of Many Ideas
Junior and sophomore engineers
yesterday morning adopted resolutions
at their assemblies which authorize
the presidents of both classes to ap-
point special committees for thecon-
sideration of an honor system for the
college. This action constitutes the
first step taken by the two classes to
increase the standard and understand-
in of honor among the students of
the college.-
The committees are to be composed
of two men each., and, together with
the same number from the senior and
freshman classes, will form a combin-
ed committee to investigate the meth-
ods employed in other colleges to bring
a sense of responsibility to the student
body. It is planned to nuake all of the
sessions of the larger committee .open
meetings for the reception of sugges-
tions. As soon as the senior and fresh
man committees have been arranged
for, an upperclassman chairman will
be selected by the combined commit-
tees, and the first meeting of the body
will be announced.
Dean M. E. Cooley did not speak to
the assemblies yesterday because he
felt that the impression was too prev-
alent that he was providing impetus
for a campaign against cheating. He
believes that the matter can be most
effectively solved by the 4".dents
themselves and is leaving the solution
of the matter wholly to them. 4
Considerable matter concerning hon-
or systems has already been gathered
together by the Michigan Technic, and
a part of the information, which it has
received too late for publication, will
be turned over to the committee from
the classes.
George Kyer, who is one of the local
merchants caught by students passing
forged checks, has made an offer of
reward to the person who will give in-
formation leading to the arrest of AIe
On March 1, a check for $10 was
passed at Kyer's store 'which later
proved to be forged. Kyer now offers,
$25 for information leading to the ar-
rest of the forger. ,He is unable to
describe the person who gave him the
check, which is- only ole of 19 which
have been floated the last few weeks.
Dean John R. Etlinger, of the lite
ary college, will represent the univei -
sity at the annual meeting of the Mich-
igan alumni association of Buffalo, N.
Y., to be held the middle of April.
While in Buffalo, Dean Elinger will
present a cup, offered by the Buffalo
alumni association, to the Nichols
school hockey team, which won the
city hockey championship this year.
The exact date of the meeting has not
yet been decided.+

Discussion Hinged on Interpreti

By winning a unanimous decisE
Madison, Wisconsin, and a two tc
victory over the Illinois team at

for Michigan developed his speech
four main divisions in which he
phasized the ill-effects of the a

that it renders laborers activities
