New System of Intercollegiate Atlet-
les to Be Presented to Athletic
Mentors at Today's
PLAN INCLUDES REVISION OF
PRESENT SPORT SUPERVISION
May Create Managership on Footing
with Others; Combine Two
Interclass athletics will assume a
position alongside of the Varsity
sports, if a plan drawn up by a com-
mittee of the board of directors of the
athletic association is adopted.
At a recent meeting, the board of
directors appointed a committee, con-
sisting of Intramural Director Rowe
and Treasurer T. Hawley Tapping, to
revise the system 'of supervision of in-
terclass sports. This committee will
report to the board at its meeting this
The plan that will be presented pro-
vides for the enlarging of the board
of directors by the addition of the in-
tramural director. The offices of sec-
retary and treasurer will be combined,
according to the plan, and in the extra
place, an intercollege manager will
The intercollege manager will
rank on the same basis as the other
managers, and will represent inter-
class athletics directly on the board.
In addition, the new plan calls for
an intercollege board of control.
This will consist of eight students, one
from each department, and three fac-
ulty men. The eight students will be
chosen from the sophomore team man-
agers of each department, by all of the
managers of that department. They
will tae office their junior year. The
intramural director and intercollege
manager will be ex-officio mem-
bers of the board.
To this board in control of intercol-
lege athletics will come all ques-
tions of dispute in class competition,
the awarding of insignia, and any oth-
er matters which concern only class
athletics. The board of directors of
the athletic association will have veto
power over their actions.
The final step in the revision will
be in the manner of the election of the
new intercollege manager. At the end
of the year,. the intercollege board of
control will nominate from its own
body four candidates for the office of
On general campus election day, a
student vote will choose the man who
will act in this capacity.
The new plan will raise the plane
of inter-class sports, if adopted, and
place them on a better organized and
more efficient basis.
NEW STUDENT COUNCIL SWORN
IN AT LAST NIGHT'S MEETIN
Use of Spike Shoes in Spring Games
by Freshmen is Being
Recently elected members of the
student council took the oath of office
at last night's meeting of that body,
R. M. Carson, '17, H. L. Carroll, '17E,
C. H. Allen, '161-H, H. Henderson, '16M,
and W. Wilson, '1D, taking their plac-
es as representatives of their respect-
A committee was appointed to tbor-
oughly investigate the question of the
use of spikes in last Saturday's un-
derclass contests. G. W. Rouse, '17,
suffered a broken nose, and at least
one other second year man was injur-
ed in the push ball contest, and from
the statements of these men it is be-
lieved that a freshman eluded the
councilmen and other officials who
made every effort to keep out men
wearing dangerous looking shoes.

The Michigan Daily is in receipt of
another letter from Eulalie Stone, '18,
of Charleston, W. Va.; requesting that
publicity be given to the fact that Miss

untrue that I was under the constant
care of Dr. Pratt since my entrance in
the university," says Miss Stone.
The editors of The Daily are glad to
qualify the statement published in the
issue of May 1, and to make the cor-
rection asked for by Miss Stone.
