on for One Semester I)irect
mit of "Keg Party," Held
During Annual 1916,

Punishment Dealt Out Under Orders
from University Senate, Which
Forbids Such. Affairs
Three members of the junior engi-
neering class were suspended for one
semester as a result of the action tak-
en by the faculty of the Colleges of
Engineering and Architecture at a
meeting held yesterday. This action
was taken as a direct result of the
holding of a "keg party" during the
junior engineers' annual pow-wow'
last Saturday. Following is an exact
report of the faculty on its action:
"Yesterday the faculty of the Col-
lege of Engineering suspended, for
one semester, three students of the
junior class of the College of Engi-
neering, who were in responsible
charge of the pow-wow held last Sat-
urday evening, where beer was served.
The faculty, in taking this action, is
carrying out the express orders of the
University Senate, since that body has
positively forbidden all celebrations
having the nature of "keg parties."
The class arranged, at a formal class
assembly, for the pow-wow. It was in-
timated that provision would be made
for the presence of faculty members as
customary. The plans for serving beer
at the pow-wow were not disclosed. No
opportunity was given, therefore, to
those who oppose celebrations of this
kind to protest or to absent themselv-
es from the pow-wow. The students
in charge are held responsible for be-
traying the confidence of the class and
for allowing a wholesome celebration
to degenerate into a carousal."
When interviewed last night, officials
of the class and those in charge of the
pow-wow, denied that any arran'ge-
ments for having beer at the pow-wow
were"made. They say that the dis-
covery of beer on the premises was a

Small Entry List Compels Cancelling
of Preliminaries in Water
Contests; Work on
Docks Done.
Varsity Band to Furnish Day's Music;
Saturday Afternoon's Plans
Up to last night, no entries had been
turned in for canoe events of the Boat
club regatta, which will be held at
Barton Pond tomorrow. Despite the
cold weather, however, from five to
six men signed up for the diving and
swimming contests. Two teams have
entered the water marathon, which
covers the course from Lakeland to
the Barton dam.
Because of the comparatively small
entry list in the diving and swimming
contest, no preliminaries will be held
this afternoon, as was formerly plan-
ned. Trials for yachtsman's flags were
scheduled for yesterday afternoon,
but no men appeared. No future date
has been set for another competition.
A body of students spent yesterday
and Wednesday afternoons at the lake
constructing the judges' stand and the
diving platform. The latter will be
the regulation distance of 10 feet from
the water.
As all attempts to provide a special
train to carry the crowd to Barton
Pond failed, walking, taxis and canoes
will be the only means of getting to
the scene of the festivities. For those
who make the trip in canoes, a lift
has been provided at the dam to carry
the boats up to the level of the lake.
The Varsity band will be stationed
constructing the judges' stand and the

are under way to secure the Glee and
Mandolin clubs to render a number of

Coach Lundgren, 26 ball players, and
a contingent of rooters will leave Ann
Arbor at 11:45 o'clock today, going
from Packard and State streets on a
special car, which will carry the Wol-
verines to East Lansing with but one
stop, that at Jackson when time will
be taken out for lunch.
Today's game with the Aggies will
be the event of a shift in the Michigan
lineup. Sisler is the man who will
face Coach Macklin's men, and his
place in the outfield will be taken by
Brandell, who will be shifted from
short to left field. Brandell's place in
the infield will be taken by Shivel, who
made his debut with the Varsity team
a year ago in the M. A. C. game at
East Lansing. -
Waltz, whose injury in Wednesday's
practice did not keep him off the field
yesterday, will be seen at his usual
place on third base, the shifting of
Brandell to left field, and the substitu-
tion of Shivel at short being the only
changes that will be made in the bat-
tle front. The batting order will be
unchanged, Shivel batting in ninth

Preliminaries In Nearly All Events
Will Be Run Today; Records
in Danger
PHILADELPHIA, May 27.-Inter-
collegiate authorities declare that ev-
erything is in readiness for the an-
nual meet, which starts here tomor-
Preliminaries in nearly all of the
events will be staged tomorrow af-
ternoon, with the finals coming on
Saturday. Nearly every intercolle-
giate record is in danger, and officials
expect that the meet this yeaf will be
the fastest ever staged.
In the quarter-mile, the man who
finishes fifth will probably have to run
48 4-5, and the present mark of. 48
flat is likely to fall. Meredith is a
heavy favorite, but Wilkie and several
other eastern 440-men have already
tied the record of 48 seconds fiat, and.
if Meredith is victorious the chances
are that he may have to equal the
present record, if not actually lower
The half-mile- will probably be run
well under 1:55 and the mile will go
under 4:20 almost for certain. In
fact the man who finishes fifth in thea
mile will probably have to do close
to this figure.
With Ingersoll, Smith, Teschner,
Treadway, Lockwood, Lippincott, Pat-
erson, Howe, and several other won-
derful sprinters, the dashes promise to
be one of the features of the meet.
Treadway of Yale has done 21:3 this
year in the 22-yard dash, and nearly
all of the men have done the hundred
in 10 flat.
Anyone who cannot clear six feet;
in the high jump will almost be count-
ed out before the event begins. Rich-
ards of Cornell has been doing six
feet four and five, and Oler of Yale
has been approaching this figure.
With favorable weather conditions
some marks are bound to be smashed,
and a record breaking performance
all around is expected. This year's in-'
tercollegiate will probably figure as
one of the fastest track meets ever
Barristers Initiate 12 Junior Laws
Barristers chose 12 laws from the
1916 class yesterday, and iniia ted

The total number of ballots cast for
athletic association officers was 871, an
increase of 172 over the winter elec-
tion. Ballots for Union officers num-
bered 773, an increase of 465 over last
spring. In the competition for places
on the board in control of student
publications, 822 votes were cast, an
increase of 470 over last year. The
total vote for officers of the Boat club
was 460.
J. W. Finkenstaedt, '16, carried off
two positions in the election, being
chosen Varsity track manager and re-
cording secretary of the Union. He
was the only man running for more
than one office to be selected for two.

the engineers carried off first honors,
securing 10 places, while the lits tied
with the laws for seven offices.

Jess Willard, the world's champion
heavy-weight pugilist, who won his
title by giving the Big Smoke the
soporific punch in Havana, Cuba,
April 5, thinks Michigan's n e w
Union building is going to be a pretty
fine thing. The Kansas cowboy was in
Ann Arbor yesterday as one of the
main features of Miller Bros. 101
Ranch Wild West show, and last night
after a short bout with a writer from
The Michigan Daily he said he had to,
"hand it" to the clubhouse plan. The
contest went about like this:
Round 1-The reporter led off with,
"Great town this, Ann Arbor." "Yes,"
replied Jess, "pretty nice." "The pro-
fessors have nothing to do but to build
homes," said the Daily man. "Pretty
soft," said Willard. "Yes, pretty soft,"
was the reply. Gong. Round about
evenly divided.
Round 2-Willard spoke about his
four children at the beginning of this
ound. "Of course you're going to sends
them to college when they grow up,"
the reporter said. "I will then if I
am able," the cowboy champion re-
plied. "Well, Michigan's a great
school," the former offered. "Zat so?"
Willard sparred. "Yes," said the news-+

paper man, "great place." Gong.
Round about evenly divided.
Round 3-"They're starting a cam-
paign to build a new Union building,"
said the reporter. "What's that?" asked
Willard. Then he was told all about
Michigan spirit, and the story of the.
Union from its inception to its present
position in university life, and finally
about the $1,000,000 club house and
what it will mean to both students and
alumni. "Gosh," said Willard, "that's
wonderful." And the world's champion
took the Union's count.
Willard has been with Miller Bros.
for 16 days, and according to his pres-
ent contract he will remain with the
show until the latter part of the sum-
mer. He travels in a private car pro-
vided for him, and has little to keep
him busy except two exhibition bouts
each day at the concerts.
The champion is right at home with
a "wild." west show because he spent
a good part of his life on cattle ranches
in Kansas and Oklahoma before going
into the fight game. - He formerly
earned his living by punching cows,
except during six months he spent in
the real estate business in Arkansas
City, Kansas.
