tI.S.N.C. Members Postpone Gathering
Members of the M. S. N. C. club have
decided not to hold their meeting this
week. The club is composed of for-

Ferguson's ear is in a delicate con-
dition and the jar and noise of a rail-
road trip might endanger his hearing.
The tow-headed twirler also suffers
from a sore throat, and he may have
his tonsils removed the early part of
next week.
The eligibility of Caswell, who is
one of the candidates for the mound
position Was brought about yesterday,
it being discovered that there was a
mistake in his credits, and that he will
be able to engage in further compe-
tition for the place among the pitchers.
With Ferguson out of tl running it
looks as though Caswell would be one
of the men to make the southern trip,
but the coach says that his selection of
successful candidates will not be an-
nounced until tomorrow morning
Yesterday afternoon's practice took

by the overwhelming score of 17 to 1.
Brandell was the chief factor in the
scoring of the Varsity runs, by
crossing the plate five times in the
course of the afternoon's play. Laba-
die led the hitters with four bingles
out of five times at bat.

The second team distinguished them-
selves by making two double plays on
the first team men, Smith, Shivel and
Stewart being responsible for one of
the feats, and Payette, Stewart and
Boyle making the other. Sisler hit for
extra bases twice, getting two doubles,

RELAY1 MEN RUN ON
FEIRRY FIELD0 TRACK
Ifer, Carroll and Fox Have Positions;
Donnelly and Grauman to Try
for Last Place
ALL-FRESH TRACK MEN PRACTICE

Coach Farrell sent all of his milers
over the half mile yesterday afternoon,
in an effort to familiarize them with
the pace. The men were all instruct-
ed to run 2:14 and all came close to
this figure.
s
The entry of a team for the four mile
is a certainty, but the fate' of the ag-
gregation for the two mile is doubtful.
The knowledge that last year the win-
ner hugged the eight minute mark,
means that Michigan will have to de-
velop four men, all of whom can run
the distance close to two minutes.
Ufer, Carroll and Fox are assured of
their positions on the four-mile team,
unless- accidents break up the combi-
nation. The fourth position will go to
Donnelly or Grauman, and the fight
for the fourth lap promises to be a'
warm one. The auburn haired Don-
nelly defeated .Grauman in the gym to
decide the fourth man to go east when
the squad journeyed to New York
about a month ago, and the battle be-
tween the pair for the opportunity of
going to Des Moines should result in
one or both of the boys running a
faster mile than either has done yet
this season.
The Ferry field track is in excellent
shape. It has been rolled, and Coach
Farrell stated yesterday that he be-
lieved it was in as good condition now
as at any time last year. The pole-
vaulting standards, were put up yes-
terday for the first time. The new ones
have a range of over 15 feet, whereas
the old ones in the gym would only ex-
tend 12. Wilson has cleared the top
of the old ones, but the coach declared
yesterday that the new ones should ap-
parently last forever, as far as height
is concerned.;

TROJAN WOMEN" WILL APP1 '
AT WHITNEY THEATER APRIL 22
'ieket Sale Will Not Commence Until
After Approaching
Holidays
Because of the impossibility of stag-
ing "Trojan Women" in Hill auditori-
um, the Whitney theater has been se-
sured for the presentation of the dra-
na on April 22. Masques has combin-
d with the Drama and Women's
Leagues in securing this play for Ann
krbor theater-goers. The Little Thea-
:er Company, of Chicago, which is pre-
enting "Trojan Women" will come
ere directly .from the University of
Illinois, where a performance is billed.

The play will be given in Detroit
uring the annual meeting of the Dra-
ma League of America, and in Wash-
ngton on May 5, when an internatren-
al peace conference will be held in
hat city. The company will tour C'e
astern cities and then go to the Pa-
ific coast, arriving there in timo4to
give a first performance at the Pana-
ma-Pacific exposition on June 4.
Arrangements have been made "r
he convenience of students who will
iot be in Ann Arbor during the spring
racation, and the seat sale will not
ommence until April 19.
Eix Wall Left Open by Organ Removal
Repairs on the back wall of the
tage in the auditorium in University
-all are now being made by the de-
partment of buildings and grounds.
Since the pipe organ was taken out
.wo years ago and put in Hill auditori-
um, the gap in the wall has been cov-
red with burlap, but the space is now
being covered with steel lath prepara-
tory to being plastered.

Mme. Olive Fremstad, the prima
donna soprano of the Metropolitan Op-
era Company, will sing in the last
number on the pre-festival choral un-
ion concert series, at 8:00 o'clock to-
night in Hill auditorium.
According to musical authorities,
Mme. Fremstad is able to appear with
an equal advantage on the concert
platform as upon the stage. The sing-
er's voice is considered as one of ex-
ceptional beauty, and though she be-
gan singing as a contralto, she is now
renowned as a soprano.
Mine. Fremstad is known as a schol-
ar along with her fame as an artiste,
since she is familiar with philosophy,
psychology and logic. She is known
to understand the emotions and char-
acteristics of all peoples and periods
which she interprets. She d'evotes her-
self entirely to her work.
Her interpretation is considered to
be at its best in concert, in which her
personality is free from the disguise
of an operatic role. Potent force, fi-
delity and sincerity are said to be the
chief characteristics of her singing.
Mme. Fremstad appeared in some of
the May Festival concerts several
years ago, when she was well receiv-
ed. The following program will be
given at the concert tonight:
Die Allmacht ............Schubert

number of big business organizations to
provide business fellowships for men
interested in a business career. The

eient of a sum sufficient to cover living

about $60 to a month throughout
the year.
# The holder is to give at least one
half of his time during the college
year, and full time during the summer
vacation to practical work in the bus-
iness establishment providing the fel-
lowship, devoting the remainder of his
time to the study of business subjects
in New York university.
Graduates or seniors interested may
obtain fuller information from Karl E.
Guthd, of the Graduate School. Some
companies will want men with special
training, such as the United States
Steel Corporation, which prefers men
trained in mechanical or chemical en-
gineering.
