that the Michigan mentor had to cal
quits on the five inning game that h
had planned for yesterday afternoon'
practice session, and confined his me
to light practice.
When the coach was forced to cal
off the game which he had planned on
he started the men at work on infield
ers' practice and bunting, giving the
entire squad a thorough drill in the
elements of the elusive art of beating
out a slow one to first.
Davidson and Nichols alternated it
the box while one set of men was run-
ning bases and bunting. Dwyer held
down first, with Smith at second.
Thomas at short and Eaton at third.
Shepard did the receiving for the two
pitchers, and bunting was the sole or-
der of the day for the batters. Eaton
got in fast on some of the short ones,
but the best defensive factor against
the bunting of the remaining men was
Shepard's arm. He showed an ability
yesterday to cover his quarter of the
diamond in good shape, and his wing-
ing to first on bunts cut short many
a safe one.
The coach drove his other men out
on the field and shifted them around,
while the men who had been fielding'
got in a few chances at the bunting
game themselves. The day closed
with a short session of gathering in
flys by the outfielders, who were given
a last warming up exercise as a top-
ping off of the day's practice.
One week of practice is all that re-
mains to the Varsity tryouts, the team
leaving here a week from today for
Lexington, where the first game of the
1915 schedule will be played a week
from tomorrow. A few more chances
to hold practice games is all that the
coach wants between . w and that
time, and, weather favoring, he will
hold them next week. .

E The hits of the evening easily were
, "There Are No Tears Or Sorrows." by
- Grinstead and McMahon, and "The
Storm," the dance by Grinstead and
Dunne. Grover, in the role of Annette,
the captivating head manicurist, again
won his way to the hearts of those
who saw him. At the close of the
show, one of the gallery gods was
heard to remark, "He certainly can
use them eyes."t
Morrison Wood, in the part of Le-
fevre, one of the rivals for the hand of
Annette, deserves especial commen-'
dation for the manner in which he
handled his role. In the "Cheer Up"
number, with the assistance of the.
pony chorus, he drew rounds of ap-
The one criticism which may be of-
fered concerns the length of the sec-
ond act. Some of the specialty artists
were too ready to take encores, al-
though they made distinct hits. Owing
to the duration of the final scene, the
clog dance by T. J. Doyle, '15L, was
omitted from the program. Direc-
tor Sanger was satisfied with the act,
but thought that it did not fit in well
with the action.
The final Ann Arbor performance of
the opera will be staged at the Whit-
ney theater on Friday night, April 9.
The seat sale for this show will com-
mence at 10:00 o'clock tomorrow at the
box office of the Whitney theatre, and
will last through to the date of the
performance. The opera has played to
capacity houses the last two nights,
and but a few scattered seats and
boxes are left for this week's appear-
aic . About 200 orders for tickets
have been received by the management,
and the extra show is the result. 9
Copies of the operatic number of the
Michigan Gargoyle will be available
at noon today in front of the State
street stores. This edition of the fun-
book bears the title "Operatic" by vir-
tue of the marked absence of any ref-
erence to the Mimes production.
It will however be featured with con-
tributions by M. C. Wier, H. P. Scott
and E. S. Everett, instructors of rhet-
oric in the university. F. C. Bade, ex-
managing editor of the Gargoyle, Har-
old Upjohn and Alan Honey, former
members of the staff, have also writ-
ten. Credit is also due Roy Parsons,
'14E, Harold Schradzki, '15L, H. B.

Cap-and-gowned audience and vari-

heartily into the spirit of fun generat-
ed by the brilliant little play, which
depicts happenings in Ann Arbor in
2002, when Michigan is represented as
a wholly feminine university. Com-

PRE-HOLIDAY DANCING PARTY
Although the use of Waterman gym
could not be obtained for the staging
of the "All-Lit" dance, scheduled for
the first week after vacation, the com-
mittee in charge expects to be able to
provide dancing room for the probable
large numbers. Besides Barbour gym,
the committee expects to make use of
the parlors downstairs, placing the
orchestra between the gym and the
smaller room. In this way it is plan-
ned to take care of the crowd, which
is expected to .$be the largest of the

It was the further opinion of the
board that in so far as possible, and
according to the rules of these organi-
zations, the election should be under
the control of the student council. The
board advocated the enlargement of
the plan to include class and other
organizations in future years, provided
the plan works out well this year.
A resolution to the effect that the,
Syracuse outdoor track meet be con-
sidered the "big" meet, upon the basis
of which track "M's" be awarded, was
also passed by the board. Michigan
men winning first place in any events
of this meet will be. entitled to their.

the athletic board of control, with
whom the final decision rests.
Insignia, the exact nature of which
is to be determined by a committee,

the team will be given their numerals.

ed from a track shirt, as in former
years; to a jersey numeral sweater.

Demand for All-Law Smoker Increases
Plans being pushed for the "all law"
smoker will take place in the near fu-
ture. There was some doubt as. to the
certainty of this event, since it was
rumored that the several separate
class events made it seem advisable
not to crowd the social schedule. This
however has been discredited and the.
consensus of opinion in the whole law
school is strong for the big event.
Ray J. Mills Reported Much Improved
Ray 3. Mills, '16L, has practically
recovered from an attack of iuto-in-
toxication which has confined him in
Dr. J. F. Breakey's hospital since Sun-
day. He will probably be discharged;
within the next few days.

Although the freshman class of the

to support the proposed plan for the
discussion of an honor system in the
college, no appointments have been
announced by either the president of
the first year class, or the other class
presidents, for places upon the com-

mittees are 'being considered by the
presidents however, and probably will
be ready for publication tomorrow.
