small number of hours he had to his
credit. It is possiblethat he may be
declared eligible later.
It is understood that Shepherd, a
strong candidate for second string
catcher, is also deficient scholastically,

is assured of a strong team when he
plays his Initial engagement on the
trip.
The eligible men include six pitch-
ers, three catchers, seven infielders
and six outfielders. The majority of
these men wil be taken on the south-
ern. invasion, although the exact team

HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS HEAR
PRESIDENT-EMERITUS ANGELL
President-Emeritus James B. An-
gell addressed the students of the Ann
Arbor high school yesterday morning,
on the occasion of the honor exercises
of the junior class. Doctor Angell
spoke on the subject, "The Value of
Scholarship," pointing out that hard
work is essential to the accomplish-
ment of anything worth while. At the
close of his remarks, Doctor Angell
advocated the preparation of a com-
plete history of the high school, from
the date of its founding to the present
time.
Delinquent Law Students Report Today
Delinquent law students, who have
suffered from disinclintion during the
past semester, will be summarily dealt
with, unless they can persuade the,
committee on absences, which meetsi
from 3:00 to 4:00 o'clock this after-
noon, that they were compelled to re-]
lieve the class room of their presencei
for valid reasons.
The board this year has decreed
that the absence marks of the first
half of this semester will be added to
those of the second.;
Seeks Information About Fresh Caps
Northwestern College at Napperville,
Ill., may have its freshmen wear green1
caps. The student council received a
letter from the Institution asking com-
plete information as to how the capl
tradition was started at Michigan, and
how it is working out.

Three runs in the first inning de-
cided yesterday's conflict on Ferry field
in favor of the first team, this being
the second shut-out of the week. Dav-
idson's work in the box for the reg
ulars figured largely in the. second
team's loss, the veteran striking ou
three of the scrubs in one inning, and
as many more in the course of the
game.
The coach announced yesterday af-
ternoon that the squad which will
make the southern trip will not be an-
nounced earlier than tomorrow night,
it being the purpose of the Wolverine
mentor to get as distinct a line as pos-
sible on the men before picking them
for the big work. It is possible that
as many as 16 men will be taken south,
but at least 14 will go along, and the
coach plans on taking as many more
as possible.
East Indian Student to Speak Tonight
Dr. F. N. Hardiker, grad., of Cal-
cutta, India, will speak on his native
land at 7:00 o'clock tonight at the

trations will be thrown on the screen,
which are said to be typical of the
country.

* CAM1PAIGN FOR NEW UNION *
* BUILDING*
* -0- *
* In reply to several inquiries ;
* lately as to thepresent status of *
* the Michigan Union's campaign *
* for building funds, it may be *
* said that the campaign will be *
* taken up next July where it was *
*left last September and will be *
* carried to completion by Octo- *
* ber 31, 1915. As will be recall- *
* ed, the campaign was stopped *
* last year because of the then *
* unsettled business conditions *
* brought about by the sudden out-' *
* break of the European war, and *
* because of the uncertainty as to *
* what part we might take in the
* conflict.
* Replies from many letters re- *
* cently sent out to alumni indi- *
* cate-that business is gradually *
* and firmly adjusting itself to the *
* new conditions, and alumni have *
recommended that the campaign
* for funds be completed during *
* the coming summer. The New *
York alumni voted unanimously *
* to run the campaign this year. *
* Acting upon this, the Union cam- *
* paign comittee, at a recent meet- *
ing, passed a resolution to finish *
* the work of organizing and so- *
* liciting funds this year. *
* In the campaign three sepa- *
* rate funds will be asked for: *
* $600,000.00 for building; $100,- *
* 000.00 for equipment; and $300,- *
* 000.00 for endowment. It is the *
* purpose of the committee in *
* charge to reach every alumnus *
* and ask him to contribute at *
* least a small sum toward the *
* building in order that every man *
* who has been at the University *
* will feel that he has a part in its *
accomplishment. *
* To carry on this work the en- *
* tire United States has been di- *
* vided into eight districts with a *
central committee in each one *
* having charge of the sub-divis- *
* ions in each district, with the 10- *
* cal Ann Arbor office having *
* general supervision over the *
* entire territory. On July 1, *
* ten men, young alumni of the *
* University, will be sent out to *
* organize local alumni commit- *
* tees to carry on the soliciting in *
* that particular territory. There *
* will be no actual soliciting until *
* the entire alumni body is organ- *
* ized and put in touch with the *
* central committee in Ann Arbor. *
* The work of organization will *
* be completed by September 30, *
* and funds will be solicited dur- *
* ing the month of October, clos- *
ing with a Michigan Union *
* smoker on October 31 in every *
* town where there are Michigan *
* alumni. (Signed) *

COUNCIL WRANGLES
ON ELECTION PLAN11
s Refer Matter of General Balloting
- Day Back to Committee; Class
Question Proves One
Stumbling Block
CHAIRMAN MOTHERSILL WILL
FORMULATE ANOTHER PROGRAM
-Groups Chosen to Investigate Demand
1 for Open Electioneering and
to Manage Send-offs
After wrangling over the Campus
Election day question fo an hour last
night, the student council again left
the matter with the committee, and
the matter stands practically where it
did three weeks ago.
The chief question is whether the
classes shall come under the plan this
year, most of the councilmen express-
ing the view that they should, while
the board in control of the athletic as-
sociation, the only group representing
an all-campus organization which
have been interviewed by the commit-
tee thus far, has objected to this pro-
vision, for this year at least. Chair-
man Allen W. Mothersill; '15, intends
to draw up another program fQr the
election, and submit it to the various
organizations.
Howard MacDonald, '15, H. S. Par-
sons, '15E, and H. E. Lilly, '15L, were
'15L, were put on a committee to take
gate the alleged demand for open elec-
tioneering. G. A. Bergy, '15P, C.' W.
Ditchy, '15A, and H. S. Rummel, '13-
'15L, were put on a committee to take
charge of send-offs for departing
teams, the next of which is to take
place when the track team leaves for
the eastern intercollegiates. Provision
for these committees was made at the
last meeting.
DOCTORS DECIDE MAULBETSCH
SUFFERS FROM APPENDICITIS
Star Will Not Be Out of Game, But
Injury May Affect His
Speed
John Maulbetsch, Michigan's repre-
sentative on Camp's All-American sel-
ection for 1914, will be operated on
some time next week for appendicitis,
his doctors determining in a recent
consultation that this was his ailment.
The operation will be performed as
early as is possible during the vaca-
tion time.
Although the Wolverine star will
not be out of the game for next fall
on account of his operation, he -will
probably suffer from his sickness. The
halfback will be kept out of spring
practice, and this set-back will not
tend to keep his condition up with that
of the other football men, and he n:ay
consequently suffer a loss of speed.

TO START CLASS BASEBALL SOON
Senior Laws and Junior Lits Back in
Field with Strong Nines
Interclass baseball will be started
immediately after spring vacation. In
order to get things under way, Intra-
mural Director Rowe has called a
meeting of the managers of all class
baseball teams for 4:30 o'clock tomor-
row in the athletic office.
The class league should develop
some hot competition this year. Last
year's runner-up, the senior laws, are
back in the field with a strong nine
which promises to make trouble for
any opponents. This team was in the
running for the campus championship
until the last game of the regular sea-
son last year when they.were defeated
by the 1914 laws. The beating resulted
in a triple tie for second place, from
which the senior laws emerged victor-
ious. One of the other teams in the tie
was the junior lits, who will in all
probability present a strong line-up
again this year.
To Lecture Upon New Bible Text Today
The Rev. E. S. Buchanan, of Oxford,
Eng., 'editor of the Oxford Latin Bibli-
cal Texts, will deliver a university lec-
ture on "The New Bible Text in the
Morgan Manuscript of the Apocalypse"
in the west gallery of Memorial hall
at 4:15 o'clock today. Dr. Buchanan,
who was recently appointed university

lecturer in the Latin department, has .
spent the greater part of the last 17'
years working on ancient Latin man-
uscripts of the Bible. He is recognized
as one of the greatest living Biblical
scholars.
