WALDO R. HUNT,'16, CHOSEN FOR
VICE-PRESIDENT BY ONE VOTE
Philip C. Lovejoy Becomes Secretary-
Treasurer; New Officers Go In
In an election featured by close con-
tests and light balloting yesterday, the
following men were elected as officers
for the University Y. M. C. A. for the
year 1915-1916: President, Lewis C.
Reimann, '17L, vice-president, Waldo
R. Hunt, '16 and secretary-treasurer,
Philip C. Lovejoy, '16.
The office which vas most hotly con-
'tested was that of vice-president, Hunt
being elected over Paul V. Ramsdell,
'16, by a single vote. Reimann was
victor in the contest for the presi-
dency over Paul Wagner, '16E, and
George P. McMahon, '16, by the plural-
ity of but nine votes. The contest for
the office of secretary-treasurer was
an easy victory for P. C. Lovejoy, who
received an easy majority over all the
votes cast for his two opponents, M. V.
Doty, '18, and M. W. Welch, '17.
The new officials will take office at
the first meeting of the "Y" cabinet to
be held after the spring recess, and
at this time the newly elected presi-
dent will announce his standing com-
mittee appointments for the ye'ar.
The president of the Students' Chri-
tian association will be elected by the
members of the newly elected cabinets
of the Y. M. C. A. and the Y. W. C. A.
at a combined meeting. This election
is scheduled to take place during the
first week after the spring vacation.
The retiring officials are Werner W.
Schroeder, '16L, president of the S. C.
A.; W. C. Mullendore, 16L, president
of the Y. M. C. A., McMahon, first vice-
president, N. E. Pinney, '16, second
vice-president; Hunt, secretary; and
Irwin C. Johnson, '16, treasurer, being
the other retiring officers of the "Y."
In accordance with the reorganiza-
tion plans of the Y. M. C. A., officers

BOOK CONTINUOUS REHEARSALS
OF PLAYERS NEXT THREE DAYS
Not a costume parade, but a conglo-
meration of all colors and forms of
raiment was the display at the Whit-
ney theater yesterday afternoon, when
the cast and chorus of "All That Glit-
ters" donned for the first time the
garments in which they are to appear
before the public. Everything from
.the latest creations of Paquin to aj
knight in helmet cuirass was worn
by the chorus men.
The costumes for the song. "I Want
a Hero" were especially varied. One
"hero" will appear as a strong man,
clad in blue tights, another as a Span-
ish noble, others as West Point and
Annapolis cadets, Indians, Pilgrims
and even the leather-aproned black-
smith were presented. The scenery
was also set up for the first time, both
the setting for 'the beauty parlor in the
opening act, and the board walk scene
at Atlantic City for the second act.
From now until the initial appear-
ance on Wednesday night, the cast
and chorus will be subjected to con-
tinuous rehearsals. The players will
practice at 2:30 o'clock this afternoon
and in the evening will be given a
dinner at the Union. Following the
banquet, another practice will be
held. One of today's practices will
be a "light" one, at which time the
lighting effects will be tested. Both
tomorrow and Tuesday, the men will
go through the opera. Although the
play could be produced today, so far
has it progressed in the estimation of
Director Sanger and General Chair-
man Baxter, these rehearsals will
serve to smooth out whatever rough
spots may remain.

public opened at the box office of the

Five Athletes Who Compete apt Cicago
Begin Active Outdo*,r
UNEARTH THROWER O JAVELIN
O'Brien, Ufer, Carroll, Corbin and
Wilson have begun active training for
the coming indoor A. A. U. meet in
Chicago. Carroll and Ulfe:r have been
working. outdoors regularly, prepar-
ing for the Drake relays, and although
O'Brien has reported for the outdoor
practices on several occ asions, both
the sprinter and Wilson will now begin
active training for the Chicago event.
The announcement that Captain
Smith would not maLe the trip comes
as a surprise to man'y. He has refused
.to go, preferring to wait until the team
gets outdoors, where the sprinting e-
partment is conc erned with longer
dashes. Smith was overtrained ate
Syracuse, and he has been doing but
little work recently, fearful of a repe-
tition. The captain is a much better
perfo~rmer over the longer routes,
and as the dash in Chicago is but 50
yards, he has decided to pass up the
Corbin will, compete in the hurdles,
and there is a slight chance that he
may try the: high jump, but if some of
the count:y's cracks are entered in
this event, he will probably devote all
of his eYiergies to the former event.
Carrc.,ll will run the mile, and Mich-
igan t.rack followers are banking upon
the anky sophomore tor:showthe way
to the Conference aggregation over
this course. Chicago sprung a pair
of milers at the indoor meet, who cov-
ered the distance in less than 4:30,
and these two gentlemen should prove
the biggest stumbling blocks that Car-
roil will encounter.
If Coach Farrell continues to work
Ufer at the mile, preparatory for the.
Drake relays, the fleet Michigan middle
distance man would undoubtedly expe-
rience more difficulty than as if he had
been working regularly at the 880.
Ufer is in splendid condition, however,

BOAT CLUB REORGANIZES FOR
NEW MEMBERSHIP CAMAIGN
A. M. Bentley, '16, To Manage Campus-
Wide Soliciting, for Building
Up Boat Organization
Plans have matured for a new Boat
club membership campaign, which will
be carried on under the card system
similar to that used by the Michigan
Union life membership canvass of last
year, and which will be held during
the two weeks immediately succeeding
the spring vacation. The scheme has
been worked out during the past few
days by the board in control, comprised
of officials of the organization.
A. Bentley, '16, has been appointed
third ensign of the club in place of
John S. Leonard, '16L, and will have
general charge of the whole canvass.
Cards are to be issued for every stu-
dent and faculty man on the campus,
and these cards will be returned to the
club authorities either with the regis-
tration of the person solicited or with
the reason for not joining.
One general chairman will be ap-
pointed to oversee the soliciting in
each college and school of the univer-
sity, and under each general chairman
th"ere will be chairmen for the various
iasses of the various departments. A
unit of 25 students is the present plan
for each chairman.
The regatta to be staged on Barton
pond, May 29, will be financed almost
entirely by the money turned in from
the' proposed invasion of the campus.
A Boat club dance is to be given on the
Wednesday night in the week preced-
ing' the spring holidays,-as one of a
series of events designed to create en-
thusiasm among the present member-
ship. According to unofficial returns
from the recent preliminary campaign,
the members number about 100 stu-
dents, which is 250 below last year's

She Was a Blinger and He Fell!
Now He's Hiding! Here's Why--
Light flirtations are harmless, and
occasionally stimulating. The chap we
are writing about believed this. He's
hiding now. Here's why:
There was a big dance t'other night,
the B. V. D. The lad was there with
the young college miss he has been
paying quite a bit of attention to of
late. She's aecharming bit, too, and
hie really cares quite a lot for her.
But-and that young word has smash-
d oodles of promising things-he can't
forego the dazzling smile, the low
cadences, and attendant nothings.
There was a perfectblinger at the
dance. Surely, they were all perfect
beaners, but this one was just a wee
bit blingerish than the others. He fell
--hard. And we may add "as usual"
on to that.
Evening and night passed as a mo-
ment to him. Morning mourned in the
east. The lad was "gone." He had
plunged deeply. He did not notice the
disappearing stars. Another was in
his firmament. His "regular" miss
was scarcely speaking to him. She.
was smiling that terrible feminine see-
to-you smile. Yet little did he care.
That captivating vampire, musical-
voiced siren was still smiling allur-
ingly at him.
The taxi was at t e door. He hung
back, awaiting another glimpse. Ah!i
The pain of parting! She came. She
stood beside him. She spoke.
"Isn't it just grand. We all can go

are sorority sisters."
