Issue Contains Articles on Secieties,
Dormitories and Awarding
of Degrees
October number of the Michigan
Alumnus is now being sent out to the
members of the Alumni association.
The cover this month is of much
lighter weight than usual, and gives
the magazine a greatly improved ap-
pearance. Under the Event and Com-
ment section, is discussed the signifi-
cance of the old A.B. degree, which
many believe to be losing its former
significance in the vast numbner of new
vocational subjects, which have in
many universities replaced the pure
sciences, with their rigid mental disci-
plining. In this matter, it is .believed
that Michigan has not gone as far as
some other colleges, but still retains
some of its old prestige,
The dormitory question is also dis-
cussed, as one of the pressing prob-
lems of the present time, and the halls
of residence for freshmen women are
hailed as a solution of the rooming
house question. But it also states that
the need of the freshman is almost s
insistent, particularly now that fresh-
men are not permitted in the fraternity
Much space is given to the compara-
tive standing of the fraternities and.
the house clubs, and mention is made
of the noticeable upward movement
on the part of the general fraternities..
Arrangements for the Pennsylvania
and the Cornell games are explained,
and directions for the accommodation

"Convocation Day is the one time in
the entire year when the president, the
board of regents, the members of the
several faculties and the student body
can assemble under one roof, and it is
my earnest hope that every student in
the university will attend the assem-
blage," said President Harry B. Hutch-
ins yesterday.
In event of fair weather the follow-
ing are the places for the meeting of
the various classes and the faculties at
3:00 o'clock tomorrow:
President Hutchins, the board of re-
gents and the orator of the day, in the
office of President Hutchins.

Plans for Fraternity Canvass Almost
Completed and Active Work
Begins Soon
Instructions for the campaign to se-
cure every faculty man as a member
of the Union were given to the com-
mitteemen last night, and the active
canvass will be started today. All of
the members of the faculty who are
not already members of the Union will,
be approached and it is expected that
practically everyone will be secured,
a large number already being on the
membership roll.
The committee consists of L. K.

I. W. Thompson, '16, R. S. Collins, '16,
E. W. Hoffman, '16L, R. W. Harbert,

Work on the fraternity and house
club canvass has been started, and re-
ports on the progress will be received
within a few days. A representative
has been appointed to take charge in
each house.
President Hutchins on Program That
Will Welcome Freshmen to
Pres. Harry B. Hutchins will be the
principal speaker at the "All-Fresh"
dinner, to be given by the Union Wed-
nesday, October 21. This is the first
of the membership dinners to be given
by the Union this year, and is limited
to freshmen of all departments.
It is planned to have some particu-
lar feature predominate in each of the
dinners this year, and the first one is
devoted to interests of the first year
men. The Union will welcome them,
and take this opportunity, through its
speakers to impress upon them the ad-
vantage of getting started right, as
well as to show them what the right
start is. Besides President Hutchins,
there will be other speakers and a pro-
gram of music.

Tickets will be put on sale tomor-
row by members of the ticket commit-
tee, and, later, at the Union desk, at
50 cents each.
Philosophy I Meets in Seven Sections
On account of an increase of nearly
Mi per cent in the enrollment, in Phil-
osophy I, given by Prof: Robert -M.
Wenley, the philosophy department has
found it necessary to make seven quiz
sections in this course.

Michigan will be able to out-root M.
A. C., Saturday, if the advance ticket
sale may be taken as an indication,
for, before the first rush was over last
night, every ticket for the 8:46 o'clock
sections on the interurban line had
been sold, and the company had been
compelled to refuse to allow any more
special cars to be chartered. Some
tickets good on the 10:46 o'clock sec-
tions remain, as well as on the Michi-
gan Central and the Ann Arbor rail-
road specials, but these tickets were
going rapidly at a late hour last night.
While it was - impossible to ascer-
tain just how many special cars had
been chartered last night, it is known
that more than ten were secured be-
fore the company was compelled to call
a halt. The band, the senior engineers,
and many fraternities and clubs have
arranged for their own cars. The Ann
Arbor railroad will not put tickets on
sale until Friday, but it is expected
that a great number will choose this
route, as the team is planning to re-
turn on the Ann Arbor special.
The Michigan Central train is sched-
uled to leave Ann Arbor at 7:45 o'clock
Saturday morning, returning at 8:00
o'clock Saurday night. The Ann Arbor
special will leave this city at 7:30
o'clock Saturday morning, returning at
8:30 o'clock Saturday night. The team
will leave for M.A.C. on Friday after-
noon, and will return on the Ann Ar-
bor rooters' train, Saturday evening.'

Desirous of enlisting all large room-
ing houses in the movement for the
betterment of the standards of health
among the student body, Dr. H. H.
Cummings, of the university health
service staff, has requested that all
unorganized rooming houses send a
representative to meet with the dele-
gates from the organization houses in
the medical building Wednesday night,
October 21.
These delegates, styled, "Health Ser-,
vice Representatives," will elect offi-
cers for the coming year, and also one
doctor, to serve on the staff with Dr.
Cummings. Following this, there will
be an outline of th year's work by
Dr. Cummings.

Twe Members of Former Track Teams
and Men Who Ran LastY ear
Are Tryouts
That cross-country running is to
become a leading sport at Michigan
was further proven yesterday, when
two Varsity track men reported for the
daily jaunt with Captain Trelfa's
squad. Floyd B. Murphy, '16, Coach
Farrell's best bet in the half mile last
year, and H. Cliff Carver, '15E, mem-
ber of the 1913 track team, being the
latest additions.
Samuel Shapiro, 'lL, and Lyon Ter-
ry, '15E, both members of the 1913
cross-country squad, also helped to
augment the large band of aspiring
road runners, with their initial appear-
anoe for work yesterday.
An attempt is being made now to
have Clarence Ufer, '16, miler on the
1914 Varsity, come out for cross-coun-
try work, but despite his willingness,
it is feared that Coach Farrell will ob-
ject to his taking part.
In order to encourage the new men
who have been increasing the squad
regularly, Captain Trelfa has divided
his candidates into two divisions, plac-
ing the slower contingent in charge of
Pres. S. L. Young, who engages in the
daily practice. Young has had three
years of competition, yet it is expected
that he will be able to establish his
eligibility and take part in the coming
events. In this case, the team chosen
will stand a splendid chance of com-
peting in the intercollegiate race to be
held at Yale late this fall.
The appearance of these track men
together with older road speeders will
make the selection of a varsity team
this year quite difficult. Indications
point toward the most successful sea-
son in cross-country running.
President Young has called a meet-
ing for 5:00 o'clock this evening in the
trophy room of the Waterman gymna-
sium, for officers and board of direc-
tors only. At this session, the presi-
dent expects to discuss plans for a
match with the Michigan State Normal
school of Ypsilanti.

Teams' Representing Each Year
Be Chosen to Run Between
Halves of Penn Game

Complete plans for the interclass re-
lay races, to be staged between halves
of the Penn football game, have been
announced by Trainer Farrell and Cap-
tain Smith of the Varsity track team.
These races were inaugurated two
years go by Farrell, and have proven
popular with the class athletes.
This year there will be only one
team for each class. Tryouts for the
team will begin this week, and a week
before the time of the race, that team
of each of the fresh, soph, junior, and
senior classes which will have made
the best time, will be chosen to repre-
sent the whole class. Men who intend
to try for the team are urged to report
to Trainer Farrell at once.
At Wednesday afternoon's Varsity
track practice, more than 15 men ap-
peared on Ferry field, to loosen the
kinks in their legs. This is considered
a fair number for so early in the sea-
son. Several more men have signified
their intentions of reporting this week.
Three Squads Have Light Signal Work
on Third Day Out
Having had two days in which to
limber up, about fifty aspirants for
class teams turned out yesterday af-
ternoon for the first big day of football
practice under Coach Crawford.
Cool weather seems to be drawing
the interest of class athletes to the fall
sport, as is testified by the increasing
number which turns out each day.
Three classes had enough men to en-
able a slightly curtailed squad to run
up and down south Ferry field in light
signal practice and simple formation.
The fortunate classes were the senior
laws, senior lits and soph lits.
In order to stimulate interest in the
class football team, the senior engi-
neers are planning a mass meeting in
room 311 of the engineering building
at 4:30 o'clock today.
W. H. Tinker Away on Fund Campaign
Wellington H. Tinker, religious di-
rector of the university Y. ;M. C. A.,
left Tuesday for Grand Rapids, whefe
he will carry on the campaign for
funds for the new Y. M. C. A. build-
ing project. For the present, the cam-
paign is being confined to people other
than the alumni of the university. A
total of $70,000 of the required $120,-
000 has already been pledged.
