APPOINT MEN TO INVESTIGATE
HONOR SYSTEM FOR ENGINEERS

Following instructions given by
Coach Farrell before he left for Chi-
cago Friday night, the Michigan mil-
ers and half-milers enjoyed a work-
out yesterday afternoon in the shape
of a trial spin in each event.
The half-milers had been told to
cover the distance in 2:08, and Cap-
tain Smith caught them in 2:11 1-5.
The milers had been told by the coach
to run the four laps in the 4:55 and
they complied with considerable pre-
cision, stepping the distance in 4:55
3-5.
Robinson, Fontana, Burby and Hunt-
ington comprised the half mile squad,
while Fox, Grauman, Donnelly and
Fishleigh ran the mile. The track is
in very poor condition as far as fast
work is concerned, although it is get-
ting better rapidly.
W. G. HOUNSHELL TO ADDRESS
STUDENT BUSRAH COMMITTEE

COMMUNICATUION
To the Members of the Student Body
and the Alumni of the University of
Michigan :-
Two weeks ago in a signed state-
ment addressed to the editor of the
Michigan Daily, I censured the board
of control of athletics because of the
evident lack of an attempt to enforce
the present eligibility rules. I based
that statement upon my. own experi-
ence in dealing with the board of con-
trol. I admitted frankly that I had
told an untruth in order to play base-
ball in the spring of 1913. I did that
then because I felt that student opin-
ion was backing me in that procedure.
I am still confident that that was the
case.
On the strength of my statement,
the,board of control has requested me
to return my "M." This I will gladly
do; in fact I offered to give it up to
Chairman Whitney of the board of con-
trol over a week ago,,as it would not
be w honor to retain an "'I" under
the circumstances.
The board of control has decided to
enforce rigidly the present rule, and
if my giving up my "M" will bring
about a real enforcement of that rule,l
I will be more than pleased. However,r
I can not help but feel that our pres.
ent eligibility rule can never be prop-a
erly enforced. It is too easily evaded,
and such being the case, I feel that our
board has taken a step backward in-

Appointments to the committees au-
thorized by the classes of the engi-
neering college recently, for the con-
sideration of an honor system for the
college, have been made by the presi-
dents of the senior and junior classes.
The selections of the remaining classes
have not yet been completed, but prob-
ably will be announced tomorrow.
Oliver W. Hall, '15E, and Allan T.
Ricketts, '15E, were selected as a com-
mittee from the senior class, and Phil-
lip Mulkey, '16E, and Harry Buell,16E,
were chosen fro the junior class. The
first meeting of the combined commit-
tees is planned for tomorrow after-
noon, at which time a ninth man from
the upperclasses of the engineering
college will be selected chairman of
the body.

Will Speak on America's Problem
as Missionary in Present
European War
W. G. Hounshell, traveling secretary
for the Student Volunteer committee
of the Y, M. C. A., will speak this af-
ternoon before the university Y. M. C.
A. Busrah committee, at 3:00 o'clock
in Newberry hall. He will take as'his
subject, "The Missionary Responsibil-
ity of America Created by the Pres-
ent War."
Mr. Houshell has but .recently re-
turned to the United States from for-
eign fields and in connection with his.
remarks, he will tell of existing con-
ditions in some of the Asiatic coun-
tries.
All men and women who expect to
work on the Busrah campaign are re-
quested to be present at the talk, and
committee meetings of the various
teams with their respective captains
will be held at 3:45 o'clock.

action taken by the board in control
of athletics at its meeting yesterday
afternoon. Beginning with the pres-
ent season, a committee consisting of
the track captain, the trainer and the
director of outdoor athletics, will de-
termine the men to whomp the insignia
will go.
Formerly the "M's" were awarded to
men who placed in the eastern inter
collegiate, and to those winning first
place for Michigan in the so-called
"big" outdoor track meet of the season.
Theboard of directors of the athletic
association at its last meeting petition-
ed the board in control, that the Syra-
cuse meet be considered the big meet.
Instead of taking action on this res-
olution, the board adopted the new
plan.
The new system makes the award in
track uniform ,with that of baseball
and football. It will probably result
in the distribution of more letters, and
should also serve to determine that the
letters go to the most deserving men
-rather than to those who show well in
a single meet.
The petition from the fichigan Un-
ion Boat club to establish rowing as a
sport under the auspices of the ath-
letic association, was tirned down. In
a resolution, the board stated that
there were no funds to devote to either
intramural or interclass rowing, when
the money could be. spent to better
advantage to the students in improving
Ferry field.
A petition from Charles Kendrick,s
'15, to establish a summer baseball
team was also rejected by the board. It
is likely that only the summer class
league will exist, as in the past few
years.
Rule 4c of the athletic association
was repealed by the board. This rule
allowed a man who had competed three
years in college athletics to compete
in an open eastern intercollegiate
meet., The last man to take advantage
of this rule was "Hap" Haff, who com-
peted last year at Philadelphia in the
relay.

TO SPA TUNION
E. A. Halsey, '77, Will Be Speaker at
This Afternoon's Informal
Get-Together
PROMISE NUMBERS BY QUARTET
Mr. E. A. Halsey, '77, a prominent at-
torney of Chicago, will be the speaker
at the informal "mixer" to be held at
the Union at 3:00 o'clock this after-
noon. The talk today,. which is on,
"The Boy Scouts of America," will
probably be the last of its kind this
year, excepting one by George Ade,
who may speak shortly after the holi-
days.
Mr. Halsey, after an active life as
a student at Michigan, taught school
in several of the mid-western cities.
After passing the bar exams in Illi-
nois, he began practice with a Chicago
law firm, and has recently risen to a
position of importance in legal and
political circles.
The speaker is a strong worker
among young men and boys, and has
been recently appointed chief com-

TWO PRODUCTIONS
END RUN OF OPERA
Shows Staged Yesterday Well Received
by Enthusiastic
Audiences
NEXT PERFORMANCE ON APRIL 9

Before two enthusiastic and appre-
ciative audiences, "All That GlGitters"
ended the week's performances at thej
Whitney theater yesterday. The night
crowd was especially good, and bursts
of applause followed each number
In the afternoon appearance, the
opera was shortened by cutting two of
the songs, "Is That So," by the colored
chair-pusher, and Scanlon's specialty
stunt with Grover being omitted. By
these two omissions, the length of the
show was reduced about one half an
hour.
The next performance of the opera
will be staged in Ann Arbor on Fri-
day night, April, 9. Due to the heavy
demands for seats, the management
decided to give an extra show. Tick-

a seven-inning game between his Var-
sity and second string nines, the first
team winning by a score' of 5 to 3, in
a game which looked like a victory for
the Yannigans in the first five innings.
Each side went scoreless in the first
inning, but the second team cane back
in the first half of the next period and
pushed two runs over the plate. The
Varsity repeated in the second half of
the second, making the score a tie at
two apiece. In the first of the third,
the second nine made one run and
maintained that lead for three innings.
In the last of the sixth, with the score
3 to 2 against them, the regulars man-
aged to count three runs, and as nei-
ther side scored further, the Varsity
left' the field at the end of the seventh,
with the score 5 to 3 in its favor.
McGraw was the scrubs' sta-r, being
responsible for two husky drives, one
of which went far over Sheehy's head
in center field. Maltby did the hit-
ting for the regulars, and Benton did
some splendid fielding, catching up a
couple of bunts that might have been
safe hits.
