Donning their caps and gowns for
the first time, the seniors from all the
departments in the university will cel-
ebrate "Swing-Out" on Tuesday after-
noon, May 11, and march around the
campus, according to the traditional
custom. The date of the event was
set at a recent meeting of the presi-
dents of the senior classes.
The exercises will be held at 4:30
o'clock in the afternoon in University
Hall, following which the promenade
around the campus will occur. With
the exception of the address which
will be given by President Harry B.
Hutchins, the program is yet unar-
The times and places where the var-
ious classes will assemble have not
been announced as yet, but few chang-

year. No all-senior dance will be held
on the night of "Swing-Out" this sea-
son, as was the case last year, al-
though an all-senior dance will prob-
ably be held during that week.
In the evening at 7:00 o'clock will
occur an all-senior sing on the steps

practice will be continued.
The Varsity band will give an all-
Michigan song program tomorrow
night, the music being taken from the
past Union operas. Among the music
which has been orchestrated are se-
lections from "The Crimson Chest,"
"The Awakened Rameses," "Michi-
genda," "Culture," and "Contrarie
Mary." The music from the last two
operas, "A Model Daughter" and "All
That Glitters" will be orchestrated in-
to band music in the near future.

It was at the Varsity meet last year
that "Chink" Bond ran the 220-yard
dash in 21 seconds flat, a fifth of a sec-
and under the world's record, al-
though the claim was never allowed.
Seward did the 100 the same day in
9 4-5, and Jansen tied the Ferry field
record of 48 3-5 in the quarter. All
of these men were in top form, and go-
ing at their best.
The-seniors won the meet with 41
points, the sophomores standing sec-
and with 37, the freshmen third with
20, and the juniors last with 5. This
season the sophs, who finished third
as freshmen last season, seem to have
an edge, on paper at least.

Max Robinson has been slightly un-

PATIENT LOSING VITAL FORCE;
FEAR CHENOT MAY DIE TODAY
Physicians Shatter Hope That Second
Operation on Heart May Be
With inherent vitality gradually los-
ing hold of the force which it has con-
tributed during the past week to sus-
tain the life of James Chenot, '16, little
hope was offered this morning that he
would survive for the next 24 hours.
At ,3:25 o'clock A. M., authorities at
Grace hospital in Detroit, where the
patient is confined, said that his con-
At the meeting of the old and new
Y. M. C. A. cabinets held last night in
Newberry hall, Lewis C.Reimann, '17L,
newly elected president of the "Y"
made the following cabinet appoint-
ments for the following year: Social:
service chairman, Everett Judson,
'16E, chairman of tmn meetings com-
mittee, Paul Wagner, '16E; chairman
of the religious education committee,
Waldo R. Hunt, '16; publicity chair-
man, Whitley Moore, '18E; deputation
chairman, P. C. Lovejoy, '16.
In addition to these men, the presi-
dents of the departmental units and
a representative from each of the local
evangelical churches will have a seat
on the central cabinet.
At the meeting last night, the pres-
ident announced his policies for the
coming year, and the retiring presi-
dent, William C. Mullendore, '16L,
spoke briefly of what has been ac-
complished during the past year and
what the opportunities for the work
are during the next two semesters.
It was decided to read -a brief 5-
minute report of the work accomplish-
ed during the yea-r at the Majestic
meeting Sunday night, at which Dr.
Mabel Ullrichs of Milwaukee, Wis.,
A committee was appointed to take'
up the matter of the $900 shortage on
t; e Busrah budget and to consider
ways and means of making up the de-
dition was very low, and that the loss
of vitality was beginning to tell.
Chenot's physicians yesterday shat-
tered the hope that another operation
might be attempted in an effort to sew
up the leak in the side of his heart.
The patient's condition, they said,
would not warrant such an operation.
With a polish that was truly pro-
fessional, the ninth annual play of the
Cercle Francais, "La Poudre aux
Yeux," was presented to an apprecia-
tive audience last night at the Whitney
theater. Members of the faculty, who
viewed the performance, expressed
their satisfaction at the ease with
which every role was handled. In
fact, the cast was so well balanced
that it can be said that every member
starred in his or her individual part.
Lloyd Curby, '17L,portrayed the part'
of Doctor Malingear with such ability
that he easily stood apart from the
rest, not only because of his excellent
pronunciation, but because of his act-
ing which aptly portrayed the breezy,
irritable, but at the same time affec-
tionate father. Lucie Buechler, grad.,
as Madame Malingear, won applause
by her careful interpretation of the
scheming wife and mother, who was
persistent in ier endeavor to find a
suitable match for her daughter.
This part, Emmeline, was in the
hands of Adele Crandall, '17. Her
presentation of the quiet, unassuming,
little bourgeois maiden would have
been hard to better, and she fitted
aptly into her role. Oncle Robert, the
big-hearted, blunt old mediator, who
seemed to be the untangler of the
twisted web of the plot, was handled
by Walter Atlas, '18, and his stage
presence and earnest portrayal of his'
role caused an unusual amount of
praise from all sides.
In the curtain raiser, "Il Faut qu'une
Porte Soit Ouverte ou Fermee," a real
artist was discovered in the person of
Ruth Crandall, '15. No fault could be
found with her presentation of the
Marquise. Her pronunciation was
good and her acting was well done.

o'clock, and playing nine matches in
the Buckeye town. Six men will make
the trip, Captain Reindel, Crawford,
Mack, and Switzer being the men who
will surely go while the other two men
who will make the trip will be decided
upon by this afternoon's showing.
The-matches will be played on the
courts of the Toledo Tennis club, and
the opposition which the Wolverines
will meet at this time will prove most
valuable as training for the eastern
trip of the quartet of the men which
will make up the final team. The show-
ing of the men on the two trips, to To-
ledo and Detroit, will also figure in
determining the make-up of the east-
The Toledo tennis men are all vet-
erans who have played in the oig mid-
dle western tournaments for the past
years. Shaw is a strong player who
has ben prominent in the Michigan
State tournament at Detroit, as have
his team-matcs the Cummings broth-
ers who make a strong doubles pair.
Cone plays a good singles game, and
coupled . with Shaw the two should
form a formidable double team.
Correy, who has come as near the
doubles title of Michigan as the the
finals, will also face Captain Reindel's
men. Correy was a student at Am-
herst College, and while there he was
the mainstay of the Varsity tennis
team, holding the position of captain
during his term of attendance.
The advantages of club play for the
college team are marked. In playing
against club teams the college play-
ers get experience in better tennis
than is usually to be secured in inter-
collegiate competition. The fact that
the Harvard schedule of 11 games
contains only five intercollegiate
matches is testimony to the validity
of this fact.
With the final ratification of the To-
ledo and Detroit dates the whole of
the tennis schedule is officially an-
nounced, every Saturday date for the
rest of the college year being account-
ed for. The complete schedule fol-

bership at its meeting yesterday af-
