Every sixth dance will be a fpx-trot.
The armory has been completely
disguised by the hands of the decorat-
ing committee. The walls have been
covered with black and white, and in

smilax and roses interwoven in a sort
of lattice work. At one end of the hall
will be a large "Michigan" in colored
lights, "1917" in the class,colors being
at the other end. The committee in
charge has planned to have several
spotlight dances, and also several em-
ploying unique color effects, the class
colors being introduced in these.
The strictest informality will be ob-
served at the prom, no carriages or
flowers 'being permissible. White
trousers and blue coats will be in
vogue for this evening's function.

at the Armory at once.
'Yi WLL NOT JOIN

Organization Before Date
Set, May 30
CHOOSE OFFICERS NEXT WEEK
At the meeting of the Y. M. C. A.
cabinet held last night, the withdraw-
4l of the organization from the Cam-
pus Election day plan for this year
was announced. The reason given by
the officers was that, on account of
the lateness of the balloting day,
which has been placed at May 30, it
would be impossible for the "Y" units,
the officers of which are still to be
elected, to complete their organization
and working cabinets in preparation
for the work next fall.
The election will be held next week
by means of a duplicate post card sys-
tem. Post cards with a return ballot
card attached will be sent out from
the association offices Monday after-
noon to all paid-up members of the
Y. M. C. A. All members are asked
to vote for their preferences and mail
the card back to the association not
later than 6:00 o'clock Wednesday

mittee composed of W. J. Goodwin,

25 MEN TO, MEET
NOTRE DAME TEAM
Large Squad Leawes for South Bend
at Noon; Expect Strong
MAX ROBINSON MAY RUN DASH
One of the biggest squads, that has
ever represented Michigan in a track
meet, will leave for Notre Dame this
noon. No less than 25 men will make
the trip, accompanied by Coach Far-
Max Robinson's excellent showing
over the 220-yard route Wednesday af-
ternoon, means that the sophomore
may run this distance against the
Catholic institution, leaving Fontana
and Huntington to care for the quar-
ter. Captain Smith and O'Brien will
be on hand as usual for the sprints,
so that Hardy of Notre Dame will have
a big task on his hands to make any
impression upon the scoring sheet in
Ufer and Fox will start in the 880,
although there is a chance that Fox
may be shifted to the mile. "Eddie"
Carroll will surely run this distance,
which makes the Wolverines look good
for a few points in the mile.
"Red" Donnelly and Kuivinen will
start the two-mile. Corbin, Catlett and
Crumpacker will run the low hurdles,
while the first two mentioned will
compete over the high sticks. "Les"
Waterbury, Berry and Perschbacker
will tend to the high jumping, with
"Johnny" Ferris, Leslie and Thurston
entered in the broad jump.
"Bo" Wilson and Cross will do the
pole vaulting and Michigan should
pull down the big honors here, as both
Wilson and Cross have been going
good lately. C. Cross and Phelps havec
been selected to represent Michigan
in the shot put and discus, while De
Gowin and Bastian will throw the
Coach Farrell stated that althoughi
he had no definite line on Notre Dame,i
he believed they would be much
stronger outdoors than they were wheni
they fell before the Maize and Blue1
in Waterman gym. Every man try-
ing for a position on the Varsity squad,
who stood a chance of placing, willE
make the trip.
The team will leave. Ann Arbor at1
1:17 o'clock over the Michigan Cen-i
tral, and will return tomorrow night.
BISHOP C. D. WILLIAMS WILL°
SPEAK AT EPISCOPAL BANQUET
Bishop Charles D. Williams of the
Episcopal diocese of Detroit has.been
secured as the out-of-town honor guest
to speak at the annual Episcppal stu-
dents' banquet to be held tonight at
6:30 o'clock in Harris hall. President
Harry B. Hutchins and Prof. Arthur
L. Cross have also been invited as
guests of honor.
A short informal reception will pre-
eede the banquet, and -after the din-
ers have finished, an informal dancing
party will be held under the auspices
of the Hobart Guild.
SENIOR LITS TO HOLD FINAL
CLASS DANCE NEXT WEDNESDAY
As the final party of the year, the
senir lits will hold a "Swing-out
Dance" at the Country club next Wed-
nesday, the day after the regular
swing-out. The dance will be the first
evening affair staged by the class, and
a large attendance is expected. Be-
cause, of the limited size of the dance
hall, the number of tickets will be
limited to 50.
Woolsack Elects Nine First Year Laws
Woolsack, honorary junior law so-
ciety, has elected the following mem-
bers of the first year law class: T. E.
Atkinson, R. L. Carpenter, L. F. Dahl-
ing, H. G. Gault, H. R. Hewitt, E. B.
Houseman, M. C. Mason, Oliver Phil-
lips, and W. H. Sanford..
MAY DISPOSE OF EDITION OF
YEAR BOOK WITH DAY'S SALES
Remaining 250 Michiganensians to
Offered to Public at Campus
In all probability today will be the
last on which copies of the 1915 year
book may be obtained. Yesterday's
sale of Michiganensians brought the
total to more than 850 copies, leaving
but 250.of the edition to be disposed of.
The sale of the annual this year far
exceeds that of former years. It has
always been customary to offer copies
for sale at the book stores after the
campus campaign is finished. This
year, however, present indications
point to the fact that the supply of
books will be exhausted at the close
of today's sales.
A large number of the annuals this
year have been purchased by under-
classmen, particularly freshmen, ow-
ing to the books' greater appeal to the
campus.in general. Seniors, who have
not obtained copies of the book are
urged to get them today at the tents
on the campus, as it is not likely that
a second edition of the annual will be
issued unless there is a demand for
several hundred extra copies.
