Michigan Contends Against Chicago,
Wis coin, Illinois, Notre
l~aine anid Others
Kohler, Last Year's Maize and Blue
Captain, Competes for
L A. C.
Michigan wil ace several of her
forner Western Conference rivals, in
the Central A. A. U. championships
which are to be held in Chicago on
Chicago, Wisconsin, Illinois, North-
western and Notre Dame will all
be on hand. All of thes, except
Notre Dame were keen rivals be-
fore Michigan dropped out of the
Conference. Chicago, Wisconsin and
Illinois have recently proved to be
the three leading colleges in the con-
ference, from an athletic point of view,
and the Wolverines will see some of
the best college track men in the west.
In addition to these universities, sev-
eral of the leading athletic clubs in
the Windy City have entered squads,
and in some instances small armies.
The Chicago Athletic association alone
has entered 53 men for the occasion,
the I. A. C. following closely behind
with a grand total of 51 entrants. One
of these clubs is picked to win the
meet easily, as the other teams are of
much smaller proportions.
Northwestern has entered 15 men,
Notre Dame 14, Michigan 7, Chicago 6,
Wisconsin 5, and Illinois 3. . In addi-
tion to these, several "prep" school
stars have entered from institutions
around Chicago. Although Michigan
has entered seven men, but five will
be sent.
First and second honors should go to
one of the big Chicago athletic clubs,
as the strength of these institutions is
not alone confined to numbers. Kohler,
last year's Michigan captain, is among
the I. A. C. athletes, and others of like
caliber are competing under the colors
of these clubs. The interesting fea-
ture, from Michigan's point of view,
will be the work of the Maize and Blue
as compared with the other colleges.
From this outlook, the meet almost
resembles an old time Conference
The meet will be held at Northwest-
ern in the Patten gymn, which is one of
the finest in this part of the country.
Senior Lit Cane Orders Come Rapidly
Although orders for senior lit canes
have been coning in rapidly, the com-
mittee, of which James B. Catlett is
chairman, urges all who are intending
to order the sticks to do so at once.
Guy Woolfolk, '15, located at Frank
Brothers, on State street; is the agent
from whom the canes are ordered.

POST DETAILS OF IDEA LATER I Albert Lindquest, the well-known

According to plans formed by th6
United States Secretary of Labor, ar-
rangements are now under way which
will, in addition to solving in part the
problems of the unemployed in this
country, give jobs to students and fac-
ulty men during the summer months.
D. D. Springer, secretary of the Na-
tional Educational association, with
headquarters in this city, was one of
the men who suggested the student
labor part of the plan to the Secre-
tary of Labor while on a recent trip to
When interviewed recently by a
Daily reporter, Mr. Springer explained
the scheme somewhat as follows:
"During the summer months there are
vast opportunities in various sections
of this country for men who want to
work for a short space of time. I refer
particularly to the need for men in the
wheatfields of some of these mid-
western states, and also to the oppor-
tunities in the great fruit orchards of
the west and of the upper part of the
lower peninsula of Michigan.
"There is a certain season when the
great fruit growers are willing to pay
almost anything to get labor to harvest
their crop in a hurry. The season ex-
tends from the time for cherry picking
early in July to the harvest of the later
fruits in September. This same state
of affairs is almost identically true of
the grain crop.
"In order to meet this condition, the
Secretary of Labor is now ascertain-
ing by aid of all the post offices in cer-
tain states, just where the shortages
of labor will occur, and just how many
men will be needed in these, various
localities to supply the shortage. After
gathering and tabulating this informa-
tion, he intends to organize excursions
leaving the three central points of Phil-
adelphia, Boston and Chicago, out to
these various fields of labor,' and he
has already completed arrangements
with several railroad companies for
these special trains."
In interesting students in the propo-
sition, Mr. Springer thinks that not
only will the outdoor work be a good
physical conditioner for those students
and faculty men who go into the
work, but it will also give to a great
number of students the chance of see-
ing the United States.
When ,further details of the plan are
worked out, it is expected that the Sec-
retary of Labor will post a bulletin in
various college and university centers
giving full details of the scheme.

Swedish tenor, who for several months,
and until a few weeks ago, was enroll-
ed for special work with Mr. Harrison,
at the university school of music, has
returned to Ann Arbor after import-
ant concert engagements, among which
was an engagement at the twin-city
Messiah performances in Minneapolis
and St. Paul, on March 24 and 25.
At St. Paul he sang before an audi-
ence of 9,000 persons, and in Minne-
apolis, before an audience of -4,000..
These performances are in the nature
of consecration services, perpetuated
by the Swedish people of the North-
west, and are conducted by the Minn-
eapolis Oratorio society.
Lindquest will remain in Ann Arbor
for a short time, for special work with
Mr. Harrison, when he will again leave
for concert engagements. On April 5,
he sings in Verdi's "Requiem" in Mil-
waukee, and on April 7, in the same
work in Chicago. On April 8, he will
appear in Des Moines, Iowa, in a song
recital, and on April 9, he will give a
song recital in Chicago.
On April 10, he will begin an eight
week concert tour as tenor soloist with
the Minneapolis orchestra, visiting 60
cities, and covering 9,000 miles, after
which he will go to California for sev-
eral engagements at the Panama Ex-
University Ave. Pharmacy Fountain

Special Stone Carver Comes Next Week
To Do Work on Main'
Seats with movable writing boards,
which can be placed in position for tak-
ing notes, or let down out of the way if'
so desired, are to be only one of the
many innovations that the authorities
who have the equipment and interior
finish under supervision are planning
for the new science building. Samples
have already been submitted, and a
contract for the 486 that are to be
placed in the big lecture room will be
let early next week.
Much of the special equipment is
being prepared here in the university
shops. Two tracing tables, which are
so fixed that light can be projected up
from beneath have already been made,
and some special map holders designed
by the U. S. geological bureau are now
in the process of construction.
The general furniture, suck as lab-
oratory tables and closets, has been
standardized with the intent of making
its construction as simple as possible,
and in this way insuring better quality
from the allotted appropriation. Con-
tracts are now pending, and will be
let next week.
Wood is to be noticeable by its ab-
sence in the interior finish of the
building. All partitions will be of four
or six inch tile. All doors leading to
rooms which contain valuable speci-
mens, priceless records or any large
amount of explosives, are to be fire
proof. These are made of metal, cov-
ered with a special preparation, called
kalamein, which will cause them to
appear like wooden doors. All floors
and stairways are to be made of a lay-
er, of chipped marble which has been
ground and planed into a bed of soft
cement. This work, which will take

corners of the earth he has tried all sorts of tobaccos.
What is his unqualified statement in regard to Tuxedo?
Read it again: "IVe yet to find its equal." This is the frank
and candid opinion of thousands and thousands of experi-
enced, judicious smokers. Tuxedo is absolutely the best
all-around tobacco that modern tobacco science can make.

At the same time it refines the tobacco until every trace of
harshness and "bite" disappears.
