DETROIT' INAU UUiATES PLAN

There are at present time at the
University of Michigan seventeen
sectional clubs representing as many
different portions of the country.
These clubs have an aggregate mem-
bership of several hundred and have
been formed with the primary pur-
pose of boosting Michigan.
The largest club is that composed
of students from the state of Illinois
with a membership of 102. The Dixie
club which is made up of students
whose homes are below the Mason and
Dixon line-has a membership of 73
and is representative of 16 states. The
Cosmopolitan club has 125 students
representing 28 different countries.
The Thumb club made up of men
hailing from the Thumb district of
Michigan, numbers 60 mei; the Latin
American club, an organization of
students whose homes are located in
the Latin American countries, has a
membership of 18; and the Rocky'
Mountain club, now reorganized into
the Kappa Beta Psi fraternity, is
made up of 40 men, representing 12
states west of the Mississippi river.
The Dominion club which is composed.
of men who live in Canada, numbers
more than a score of active members.
Among the state. clubs of which
there are several in the university are
the Indian a club which has a member-
ship of 60; the New York State club
which is housed in its own building
and which has accommodations for
30 members; and the Kentucky club
with 35 members.
A number of city clubs have been
organized. Among these may be men-
tioned the Grand Rapids club which'
is the largest, with a membership of
64 men, and the Cabinet club in which
there are 26 men whose homes are in.
Washington, D. C. Recently about 20
students living in Buffalo organized a

Captain Inman Silby, '12L, former
Commander of the ill-fated steamer,
Republic, which sank off the Eastern
coast several years ago, is strongly
advocating that a Michigan Day be
set aside by all alumni associations
throughout the country. Captain
Silby, who studied law here in the
university after the disaster to his
boat, was greatly interested in Mich-
igan Union work during his residence
in Ann Arbor, and now desires the
Union to co-operate with the alumni
associations in the matter of these
Michigan Day gatherings. His plan
is to hav each association set aside
one day each week or month and to
term this day Michigan Day. In
celebration of the day, each is to give
a noon day dinner at which time
speeches will be given and topics of
interest to Michigan men will be dis-
cussed.
The Detroit alumni association held
its first meeting of this nature last
Wednesday noon at which time Coach
Yost was the principal speaker. It
was in the nature of an experiment
for a number of other associations'
throughout the country and its com-
plete success will do much towards in-
ducing other ones to join in the move-
ment. Already there are fourteen
associations which have undertaken
these Michigan Day meetings and it
is Captain Silby's ambition to enlist
every alumni association in the coun-
try in this movement.

L AMB WILL SHOW STAGE STUNTS
If the "Band Bounce," the first an-
nual "funcert" of the University of
Michigan band to be lheld in Hill
Auditorium, at 8 o'clock next Thurs-
day evening, is the success it promises
to be it will probably become a regular
Michigan institution,
The first class stunts already se-
cured for the program would make
a big 25 cents' worth of enjoyment
but several numbers of the same kind
are still under negotiation. The best
of the old campus stunts will be
shown and in addition a number of
novelties are being prepared for the
occasion.
The band will vary its program with
a -number of solos and duets among
them a saxaphone duet by Aldrich
and Lewenstein. The glee and man-
dolin clubs will give the Michigan
classics.
Durward Grinstead, '14, dancing
star of two operas and famous inter-
preter of women's roles, will present
his famous "Temptation Dance"'from
"A Model Daughter," as given at the
La Salle Hotel, Chicago, and the. Uni-
versity club, Cleveland, last winter.
George McMahon, '16, star in last
year's opera, will sing with band ac-
companiment.
C. Stanley Lamb, '18, of Duluth, who
has been years on the stage, will do
stunts, dialect monologues and hum-
orous songs. Lamb will sing a song
prepared for the occasion by Walde-
mar A. P. John, '16, the audience join-
ing in on the chorus to the tune of
"We're Going to the Hamburg Show."
Efforts .are being made to secure J.
Fred Lawton, '11, Michigan's Harry
Lauder, writer of "Varsity" and other
campus songs. Lawton was formerly
well known for his football sketch
from "Strongheart," his interpreta-
tion of Coach Yost between halves of
the Penn game, and Scotch songs.
Other possibilities are a tenor solo
by Albert Lindquist, of Chicago, for-
merly of the School of Music, and a
sketch by McNamara, the policeman
sinne-r.
