HONOR SYSTEM CONSIDERATION
COMMITTEE MAKES UPREPORT
In place of the paniphlet of informa-
tion, which was to have been issued by;
the honor system consideration com-
mittee of the engifteering college, the
members are preparing a final report,
which will soon be ready.
The report will contain much of the
material which has been gathered for
the pamphlet, but will be more
lengthy and will summarize the find-
ings of the committee.
Recent Improvement at Bat Threatens
Pitching Averages of
pired for the official tryouts, no "pep"
has been shown yet by either the
freshmen or sophomore classes in re-
porting ,for the preliminary trials.,.
While 96 men are needed for the
relays, up to date but 26 men have re-
ported for the contests, and more than
half of the number needed for the
tug-of-war teams still have to be re-
cruited. In view of this, the student
counceilmen in charge. decided yester-
day to extend the time to give one
more tryout for each event. The last
relay preliminary will be held at Fer-
ry field from 9:00 to 12:00 o'clock this
morning, the men reporting at the
clubhouse. The last opportunity to
weigh in for the tug-of-war teams will
come on Monday afternoon, from 2:00

then proceeded to strike a batting
slump which lost the remaining six
games on the southern trip for the
Ithacans. Of the seven games which
have been played by the team since its
return from the south, Cornell has
won three and has been beaten by
Bucknell, Columbia, Princeton and No-
tre Dame. The total for the season
stands 10 games lost and four won.
The poor hitting of the team is the
only thing that is keeping Regan, Bry-
nt, Johnson and Russell from winning
incessantly, these men being as good
pitchers as have been seen at Ithaca
for some time. The last few. games'
have been won by the Cornellians, and
with a continuance of the batting'
which has been shown in these later
contests the Red team should again
strike its real form. If this hitting
can. be sustained it bodes ill for the
pitchers that face the Cornell team in
Clary, last year's freshman catcher,
has taken the place of Schirick behind
the bat. Schirick was captain of last
year's nine, and his successor is con-
ceeded to be even better than he. In
addition to capability at receiving,
Clary shows a strong tendency to hit,
clipping it off at .322 for the season.
Captain Donovan at short and Bills
at second are the strong men in the
infield, forming the duet which cares
for the key-stone sack. Bills holds
down short in most creditable fashion-
and also gets time to hit .332 regularly.
Description of Teams
For the tug-of-war, three teams se-
lected from the freshmen and sopho-
mores, who report to be weighed in,
will enter the contest. The battle will
be staged at the point between the gas
plant and Argo dam, west of the Mich-
igan Central depot. There will be 50
men on each team. The heavyweights
must weigh more than 160 pounds to
qualify, the middleweights between
135 and 160, and the lightweights 135
pounds. Every freshman and sopho-
more is eligible to take part in the
,contest, which will start at 4:05
o'clock next Friday afternoon.
The relay obstacle races, in which
the runners dive through barrels and
clamber over fences eight feet in
height, together with the push ball
contest, will begin at 8:30 o'clock
Saturday morning. Three relay teams,
of 16 men each will compete in, the
races, while push ball, being a "free
for all," will give all the men in both
classes an opportunity to take part in
the big underclass fight. The student
council will announce the names of
the men who make the relay and tug-
of-war teams, on Thursday morning.
Classes Will Select Captains
In order to arrange for selecting the
captains for the various events, a'
meeting of all the fresh and sopho-
mo're class presidents will be held at
the Michigan Union at 10:00 o'clock
tomorrow morning for a conference
with the student councilmen in charge.
According to the plan of rotating
the offices, the fresh lits will choose
from their ranks the captains of the
lightweight tug-of-war team, the sec-
ond relay team, and the push ball lead-
er. Fresh engineers will choose the
captains of the heavyweight and mid-
dleweight tug-of-war teams, and of
the third relay team, while the com-
bined fresh classes homeops, dents,
pharmics and architects choose the
captain of the first relay team.

will appear at the Friday night May
Festival concert, taking the place of
John McCormack, who has been forced
to cancel his engagement here on ac-
count of a breakdown in his health.
Although it has been known for
some time that Mr. McCormack has
been -suffering from ill health, it was
thought by his manager that he would
be able to fulfill his engagement in
Ann Arbor. But to guard against any
unforseen setback in his condition, the
May Festival management made ten-
tative arrangements with Mr. Martin-
elli, in case Mr. McCormack was un-
able to be present. Definite notice
that Mr. McCormack would not be able
to come to Ann Arbor was received
yesterday, and immediately the May
Festival authorities got in touch with
Mr. Martinelli and made the necessary
final arrangements with him.
Mr. Martinelli sprang into promi-
nence a few years ago at Covent Gar-
den, London, and' at LaScala, Italy,
and was invited to join the Metropoli-
tan Opera forces two years ago when
the management of the institution was
looking for a successor to Caruso,
whose frequent indispositions made it
apparent that a successor would be
needed shortly. For a year he alter-
nated with Caruso in the leading op-
eratic roles, and with Caruso's depart-
ure in the middle of the present oper-
atic season, stepped automatically into
his place as leading tenor of .the Met-
ropolitan Opera company.

By a recent decision of the faculty
of the Medical School, a new marking
system has been adopted for use in all
courses in the school. The new rul-
ing will take effect at the final exam-
inations of this semester.
The system adopted is similar to the
one in use in the literary college-A,
B, C, D, E, except that D is a condi-
tional mark which may be removed
by examination. This is practically'
the same method of grading as'is used
in the engineering college.
