GIVES TRACK SQUAD
Crowd of ,00 Students Led by Band
Gathers at Depot to Cheer
TAKES LIGHT DRILL AT FERRY
FIELD BEFORE STARTING EAST
Party Scheduled to Reach Philadelphia
' Today, but Holds No
Michigan's track team, 12 strong,
with Coach Farrell and Manager Con-
nely took its departure for the eastern
intercollegiates last night amid the
rousing cheers of 1,500 students, and
the stirring music of the Varsity band.
Not since Michigan sent its gridiron
warriors down to Harvard have the
Maize and Blue rooters given a Varsi-
ty team such a send-off.,
In the yells, which were led by Cap-
tain-elect "Bill" Cochran of the foot-
ball team and "Hap" Haff, the throng
of students displayed more enthusi-
asm than has been shown since the
mass meetings of last fall.
With cheers for Captain Smith and
every member of the team, and more
for "Steve," the squad boarded the
Ann Arbor train for Toledo at 7:30
o'clock. The team will arrive at
Franklin field, Philadelphia, today.
Coach Farrell did not permit his
athletes to do anything but the lightest
sort of work on Ferry field during the
afternoon because of theecold weather
and strong wind. The coach stated
that in all probability the squad would
not work out on Franklin field after
arriving at Pennsylvania, and that
their next appearance in track suits
would be Friday afternoon when they
took part in the preliminaries which
are staged that day.

Constitution Are Revised
lit Final Meeting
INTERCOLLEGE MANAGER, NEW
(.'01PETITIVE OFFICE, CREATED
Adna R. Johnson, F. G Millard and
Fred E. Gould Elected
Drastic changes in the constitution
and make-up of the board of directors
of the athletic association will follow
the adoption of the new plan of inter-
class athletics as adopted by the board
in its final session of the year held
The scheme, as ratified, is as outlin-
ed in The Daily yesterday. Intramur-
al Director Rowe was added as a mem-
ber of the directorate, and the offices
of secretary and treasurer were com-
bined. To the board will be added a
new manager, to be known as the in-
tercollege manager. This office will
be a competitive one to be filled in
much the same way as are the other
Varsity managerships, and to stand on
the same footing as they do.
The measure provides for an inter-
college board of'control, from which
the intercollege manager will be chos-
en. It will have complete control over
all class athletics.
The board of directors elected the
student members of the board in con-
trol of athletics yesterday. The men
chosen are: Adna R. Johnson, '16L,
F. G. Millard, '16L, and Fred E. Gould,
'17L. Millard is at present a member
of the board of directors, acting in
the capacity of interscholastic man-
ager. The board sent a recommenda-
tion to the board in control to the ef-
fect that a change'be made in the kind
of sweater given to men who win their
track "M" a second time.

signal to participate in the annual
cap burning celebration.
A committee composed of 30 soph-
omores has canvassed the business
men of the city and has secured the
promise of a supply of wood for the
bonfire. The combustibles will be
collected by the second year men with
a number of drays Friday afternoon.
Colored fire will be provided for use
in the line of the parade. It is inti-
mated that the second year men are
planning a new feature to spring on
the freshmen at cap night this year,
but its exact nature has not been di-
Led by the Varsity band, the proces-

and gowns will follow immediately af-

weather conditions being favorable.
Try to Fly Hydroaeroplane Saturday
Work is being rushed on repairing
the leaky pontoons with which the
Aero club's new hydroaeroplane is at

get the machine on the water by Fri-
day in order that a flight may be made

HAS NOSE BROKEN
Third Sacker Injured During Batting
Practice but Expects to Play
against M. A. C.
ROOTERtS 'TO RID)E WITH TEAM
Waltz, veteran third sacker, brokeJ
his nose in batting practice yesterday.
The ball was served up to Waltz byJ
Andrus the freshman pitcher, andi
in trying to get out of the way, Waltz+
accidentally hit the ball with his bat,'
and it glanced off, striking and break-i
ing the infielder's nose. He was taken
to the club house and his injury at-
tended to, after which he went back
to the game. Just how serious thei
fracture is, 'will not be determined
until later, but it is not thought that
the player will be out of the M. A. C.
clash on Saturday.
The cold weather did not keep many
of the men away from 'the first real
day of practice since the return from
the eastern trip. The Varsity went
through a snappy drill in batting and
fielding, followed by a short game with
Coach Lundgren stated yesterday
that Sisler and Ferguson would be the
men to work against the Aggies in the
coming games. Ferguson has been
a bit wild since his return from the
hospital, and an ache in his back,
which may be a dislocated vertebra, is
given as the cause for his occasional
wildness. The coach feels that Fer-
guson is going well, however, and if
the twirler says he is fit, he will be
given a chance at East Lansing.
The team leaves on a special inter-
urban car at 11:45 o'clock Friday
morning from State street. All the
men who have been on the field for
practice will be taken with the regu-
lar Varsity squad. All men are re-
quested to inquire at practice at Ferry
field for particulars in regard to the
trip. The management announces that
there will be sufficient accommoda-
tions for Michigan rooters.
ORPHEUM THEATER SLIGHTLY
DAMAGED IN ATTEMPTED RUSH
In an effort to quell a disturbance
in front of the Orpheum theater last
night, four members of the local po-
lice force were roughly handled by a
large crowd of students who were re-
turning from the Ann Arbor railroad
station where the track team had been
given a send-off. Some slight damage
resulted to the front of the picture
house when the students tried to force
their way in. The coat of one student
was torn from him, and student coun-
cilmen on the scene dispersed the
crowd by threatening to ascertain the
name of the offender.

TO GIVE SECOND PERFORMANCE
IN NEAR FUTURE IF POSSIBLE
Genevieve O'Leary, Helen Champion
and Mi Winslow Carry
Observatory Hollow was changed to
a rendezvous' of fairies last night,
when 60 graceful members of the cast
of "Demeter and Persepho::e" present-
ed the Greek myth to an appreciative
audience numbering nearly 2,00.
From the beginning, the perform-
ance was given without a hitch The
costumes, combined with the dacing,
the lighting effects, the natural beauty
of the scene, and the clever interpre-
tation of the myth, left nothing to be
desired. As no -out-door rehearsals
had been held, because of the inclem-
ent weather, much praise should be
given Miss Alice Evans, directress of
physical education for women, for the
work and time she gave to' make the
event a success.
Genevieve O'Leary, '16, who had the
part of Persephone, carried out her
difficult role with natural grace, while
the part of Demeter was portrayed by
Helen Champion, '17, with dignity and
ease. The part is one that might eas-;
ily be the cause of a =great deal of
self-consciousness because of the ap-
parent inaction of the actress, but
Miss Champion carried off honors.
Mina Winslow, grad., who appeared
as Hermes, messenger of the gods,
presented her work with a finished
technique. The dancing of the groups
of Greek maidens portraying the win-
ter and summer seasons was similar to
that of professionals. The pantomIme
of the coming of spring was well re-
ceived by the audience.
Ellen Sargeant, '15, had charge of
the orchestra and music. A good share
of the latter was written by her, and
prepared for orchestration by William
Mills, '18. During the intermission
between the departure of Hermes and
the entrance of the spring maidens,
the girls' glee club sang a selection
which drew rounds of applause from
After the portrayal of the myth, sen-
ior and junior women presented their
annual Lantern Night celebration. Dig-
nified seniors strode across the stage,
which was lighted by three search-
lights, each carrying a lighted Japa-
nese lantern. After forming a block
"M," they were met by the juniors,' to
whom the lanterns were presented,
symbolizing the faith and trust which
the outgoing women place in the com-
Because of the success of last night's
performance, a number of -requests
have been made that it be repeated
some time next week. Miss Evans
expressed herself as favoring the plan,
and if satisfactory arrangements can
be brought about another performance
will be given.
TOTEM CLUB HOLDS BANQUET
AND ELECTS 1916 OFFICERS

retary; Clarence Kretzschmar, '18

derson, '16M, and Robert Allan, '17L
