Pleased with the showing made by
his athletes at the Pennsylvania relay
races, Coach Farrell has centered his
attention upon the Varsity track meet
which comes next Saturday.
Everyone will be eligible for the
Varsity contest and the coach stated
that anyone who turned up in a trabk
suit Saturday afternoon, would be
given a trial. The following events
will be held: 100-yard dash, 220-yard
dash, 110-yard high hurdles, 220-yard
low hurdles, 440-yard run, half mile,
mile, two-mile, pole vault, high jump,
broad jump, hammer throw, shot put,
and discus.
A large number of candidates were
working out 'yesterday afternoon, and
Farrell expects a big field in every
event. Phelps has been working out

"Johnny" Maulbetsch reported to
Coach Yost yesterday. But the All-
American halfback did not put on his
moleskins, inasmuch as he has not
been discharged from the hospital. He
rode to Ferry field in an automobile,
just to see if things had changed since
he had been there.
In all probability, he will leave the
hospital on Wednesday. "Maully"
would never be taken for a elan who
had just been operated for appendicitis.
Aside from the fact that he is rather
pale, it would not appear that he had
been in a sickroom for the past few

which the San Francisco Alumni asso-
ciation, with the help of the universi-
ty has purchased and placed in one
of the buildings where Michigan men
can find it and also meet other Mich-
igan men. W. L. Mahon, '82, will be
in charge, and the register will bej
placed in the Machinery hall with the
Meese Gottfried exhibit at the south
end of the building. Mr. Mahon has
been keeping a special record of all
movements of Michigan alumni in that
part of the country, with the idea in
mind of bringing about reunions of
old friends at this time. ' The associ-
ation hopes to make this place a con-
gregating place for all Michigan alum-
ni and undergraduates who visit the
exposition. When the Fair is over
the register will become the property
of the university and will be sent to
Ann Arbor, where it is expected to be-
come an interesting document.
Engineer Honor Committee to Meet
Members of the engineering college
committee for the consideration of an
honor system will hold their first open
meeting at 5:00 o'clock this afternoon,
in the Elgineering society room, en-
gineering building. The committee
has been classifying the data already
in its possession during the past week,
and will take sone steps this after-
noon toward the adoption of a plan to
be presented to the various classes
of the college.

The coach expressed himself , as
pleased with the eligibility condition
of the candidates. He regretted that
so many promising men had left the
university. Among those mentioned
were Galt, Splawn, Huebel, Quail,
Franzheim and James. The schedule
will, according to the coach, prove to
be a. hard one, inasmuch as there are
three hard games on the list for 1915.
The coach feels satisfied with the num-
ber of men who have turned out for,
practice. Of the 50 whose names were
on the original list, about 43 have at
some time or other reported to the
Switzer Shows Good Brand of Play in
Match with Mack
Changes in the plans of the tennis
competition have caused the authori-
ties to decide that no formal cut would
be made in the squad, as it now exists,
before the final picking of the team
is made. A record is being kept of the
number of matches played by each
candidate, the number of matches won
and the names of his opponents. On
this record of his play it is probable
that the picking of the squad will de-
pend in large part.
J. S. Switzer upset all dope, when
he easily defeated C. N. Mack yester-,
day afternoon, 6-3. Mack has not
been in the best of health this spring,
and has not been playing his usual
high grade of tennis, coupled with
this Switzer uncorked some play of
the first order, and showed a steadi-
ness, the lack of which has proved
the worst defect in his former play.+

Ticket Sellers to Join Participants
at Enthusiasin Affair Tonight;
Rehearsals Make Progress
Participants in the Boat, club min-
strels show, and ticket sellers assist-
ing Staatz Abrams, '17E, will assemble
at the Union at 7:00 o'clock tonight,
for an enthusiasm smoker. Besides
opening the pasteboard selling inva-
sion by a night attack, there will be a
brief discussion of the rehearsals
whichare being held daily in Hill
Earl B. McKinley, '16, commodore
of the organization, Harold R. Schrad-
zki, '15L, and a few others will give
"pep" talks to the prospective ticket
canvassers. It is expected that the
residue of pasteboards will go on sale
Friday afternoon at the auditorium,
after the campus has been covered.
Steady progress is being achieved at
the rehearsals of the performance
which are being held every day in the
big auditorium, for the public produc-
tion which will occur there, at 8:00
o'clock Friday night. Black-face men
with an interlocutor, an orchestra, a
quartet, "speaking" songs, and numer-
ous specialty stunts on the bill.,
Louis K. Friedman, '15, who is chair-
man in charge of the minstrel show
proper, and D. R. Ballentine, '16, who
is assisting him, are considering a few
minor changes in the program before
announcing it in its final form.
A. M. Bentley, '16, third ensign of
the aquatic organization, is compiling
returns from the recent four-day mem-
bership canvass among non-fraternity
students, and announces that more
than 100 new names have been turned
During the week after May 2, the
membership canvass will be resumed
among fraternities, during which one
man in each organization will be on
the general committee.

Unless the campus rallies to the
support of the S. C. A. Busrah project
during the coming week, this year's
budget will fall about a thousand dol-
lars short of the sum of $3,700, which
was set as the goal. When all reports
were handed in at the annual meeting
of the S. C. A. held in Hill auditorium
Sunday night, the complete total as
announced by P. C. Lovejoy, '16, ex-
ecutive chairman of the campaign, was
$2,550. To this sum has been added
today an even $100, placing the total
subscribed to date at $2,650.
Men in several of the local fraterni-
ties, acting in the capacity of mem-
bers of the canvassing committees,
placed the Busrah project before their
chapters last night,-but the reports as
to the success of this plan have not
yet been received by the managers of
the campaign.
Raymond Robins of Chicago, who
was the principal speaker at the Hill
auditorium meeting Sunday evening,
spoke to an audience of approximate-
ly 2,500 people. His address was upon
the subject of "Christian Statesman-
ship," and he stressed the important
part that university men and women
will be called upon to play in the af-
fairs of the world during the next 30
years. He said the great war will
cause a shortage in trained men and
women, such as the world has never
known before.
Paul Blanshard, '14, of Boston, spoke-
briefly on the "Appeal of Busrah," and
he explained the educational features
of the project, asking for contribu-
tions from the audience. About $300
was raised at this meeting.
In officially closing the campaign
yesterday, P. V. Ramsdell, '16, gave
out the following statement for pub-
"The management of this year's
Busrah campaign desires to thank the
men and women who have so gener-
ously given of their time and money
to the support of the project. As gen-
eral chairman of the campaign, I feel
that much has been accomplished in
the way of educating the campus to
some conception of the sacrifice that
the Michigan graduates are making in
Busrah, and I think that if Michigan

Student, with Leak in Heart, Living at
3:1 O'clock Despite Doctor's
All hope of prolonging the life of
James Chenot, '16, of Detroit, who is
lying in Grace hospital in that city
with a leak in the side of his heart,
was despaired of yesterday. Physi-
cians declared during the morning
that he would not live through last
night, but at 3:15 o'clock this morn-
ing he was still alive.
Although he was reported to have
rallied slightly Saturday, and to be
holding his own during Saturday
night, the loss of blood and the weight
of the coagulated liquid around the
leaking organ began to tell Sunday,
and the patient's condition grew grav-
er. No attempt was made of course,
to perform another operation in an
effort to sew up the leak, but hospital
authorities stated that such an opera-
tion might have been attempted if the
patient had continued to show signs
of improvement.

Bartelme Determined to Put End
of Hurling Pop Bottles at Games

"Throwing pop bottles, such as was
begun at Saturday's baseball game
with Western Reserve, is dangerous to
both players and spectators, and we
are determined to stop it," declared
Director P. G. Bartelme, of, the athlet-
ic association, yesterday.
During the progress of Saturday's
game, a large number of bottles were
thrown down in front of the stands.
Many of these broke, and the pieces of
glass form a menace to the catcher
and the first and third basemen in
their chase of foul balls.
Yesterday afternoon, nearly 50 bro-

ken bottles were counted in the im-
mediate vicinity of the diamond, and
many more were left in the exits. In
spite of the efforts made by the au-
thorities Saturday to check the throw-
ing of the bottles, the ground around
the grandstand and bleachers is cov-
ered with glass.
The athletic association authorities
believe that the throwing began
thoughtlessly, and the refusal of the
throwers to desist was a surprise. The
authorities are determined to stop the
practice, even if the soft drink conces-
sion has to be revoked.
