FiIends Hv e Not (l eni ul the Fight
But Colonel's Hfope
Are Slimi.
Chicago, June 5--The arrival in
Chicago today of nearly all of the
delegates to the Republican conven-
tion confirmed the impression that has
existed for several days in regard to
the strength of the movement in favor
of Associate&Justice Hughes.
Strong Hughes sentiment, popped
out plainly not only in the uninstruct-
ed delegates, but in groups that are
* pledged to favorite sons.
Roosevelt's Friends Lose Hope
The disclosure of this feeling among
the delegates has greatly increased
the chances of the Republican conven-
tion naming the juror. At the same
time has come a corresponding let-
down in the talk of Colonel Roosevelt
as the possible Republican nominee. In
fact Mr. Roosevelt's lieutenants are
now nearly convinced that it will be
impossible for him to wrest the nomi-
nation from the Republican conven-
tion. They have not given up the
fight and do not intend to until the
last minute, but they are chiefly con-
cerned now in finding a way to bring
about harmony and at the same time
save their own dignity.
Whie it would seem that little else
than a miracle could change the out-
look for Mr. Roosevelt's nomination,
there is no disposition on the part of
the Republicans to minimize the
power that he wields in the present
situation. Mr. Roosevelt will practi-
cally dictate the important planks in
the Republican platform and his is
likely to be the controlling voice in
the selection of the Republican nomi-
Roosevelt Expresses no Preference
What Colonel Roosevelt's preference
is in regard to a nominee barring him-
self was as uncertain tonight as it
has been at any time since the Re-
publicans and the Progressives began
to arrive in Chicago. Many confer-
ences were held today .between Pro-
gressive and Republican leaders and
between the Bull Moose lieutenants
and the Republicans but tonight the
situation was as badly muddled as
The Republican leaders here in-
sisted upon Hughes or some candi-
date from the favorite son group. The
Roosevelt followers were standing
loyally by the Colonel and state that
Hughes could not be considered by
them until he had made a statement
that would show his views to be in

Senior lledics Vote Against Proposed
James Burrill Angell Fund
The senior medical class at their
last meeting decided, by almost a
unanimous vote, not to join the other
senior classes in the proposed James
Burrill Angell Memorial. This was
the second time the proposition had
come up before the class for discus-
sion, the first time being about six
weeks before the consensus of opinion
was so strong for the combined me-
morial, andit was hoped that the feel-
ing had changed in the meantime.
The medics have not definitely de-
cided as yet on their memorial, al-
though it has been proposed to buy
something to be used in the Univer-
sity hospital.

Chicago, June 5.-It is settled that
Governor Whitman will make the
speech -placing Justice Hughes in nonm-
ination. The opposing faction of New
York delegates have agreed not to
quarrel over this point, and the
Hughes men from other states are
quite willing to let the New York ex-
governor represent them on the plat-

Reconstruction and renovation work
on the Majestic theater, costing nearly
$4,000, and which will virtually con-
vert the campus playhouse into a
new building, will be begun in about
two weeks.
To relieve the congestion at the en-
trance a new door will be built in the
front just north of the present en-
trance, and the canopy over the side-
walk will be extended to cover the
new opening. A new floor will be laid
on the stage, and the present heating
apparatus will be torn out to be re-
placed by a new system. Entirely new
scenery is to be purchased to take the
place of the sets now in use.
The parquet and the balcony aisles
and the stairways will be recarpeted,
and the lobby at the rear of the audi-
torium will be covered with cork mat-
ting. All of the seats are to be re-
upholstered and renovated, and the
entire interior will be repainted and
The theater probably will close June
19 until fall. Next college year when
the vaudeville season starts, the three-
a-day show policy will be discontinued
and only two shows will be given, mat-
inee and evening.

There were no other prizes given

other matters as could advantageously
be talked over.

l)A Y AT 11:00 O'CLOCK
Will Wear Caps and Gowns on Th'arsk
day Instead of Friday; Expect Se-
nior Classes to Dismiss
To further the spirit of "Put Michi-
gan First" among members of the
graduating classes, a mammoth senior
mass meeting will be held at 11:00
o'clock Thursday morning In Univer-
sity hall. At that time matters per-
taining to'a unification of '16 men for
the support of Michigan when they
join the ranks of the alumni will be
discussed by faculty men and senior
All'senior classes at that hour will
in all likelihood be excused to permit
the attendance of both men and wom-
en. Caps and gowns are expected tQ
be worn on Thursday instead of Fri-
day to lend distinction to the occasion,,
which may becometa Michigan custom.
Plans for this meeting were ar-
ranged at a meeting called by the
president of the Student Council at the
Union last night at which the various
senior classes were represented. The
numerous faculty men who have been
approached have given the idea their
hearty approval.
Several matters of extreme import-
ance to the welfare of the university
will be laid before the meeting. The
best means of keeping alumni loyalty
at a level with that exhibited by the
alumni organizations of the great
eastern universities will be consid-
Among other things, the question of
the best way to bring men to Michi-
gan will receive attention. Also a
part of the meeting will be turned
over to the discussion of. the Michi-
gan Alumni Trust Fund, which has
been recently suggested, and which
would be of a similar nature to that
in vogue at Yale and several of the
other big universities of the east.
Since the past football season it
has been frequently urged that Michi-
gan men who were just going out from
the university should give concerted
aid toward the support of the- insti-
tution. The movement found a hearty
support in the speeches on Cap Night,
and Thursday's meeting is hoped to
prove the climax.
President Harry B. Hutchins has
agreed to act as one of the faculty
speakers, and other prominent mem-
bers who are to talk will be announced
The increased zeal with which the
campus greeted the interscholastic
stars last week is a fair barometer
of the attitude of the campus toward
the securing of bigger men for Michi-
gan; and it is hoped that such spirit
will continue after graduation.
W. W. Schroeder, '16, Contributes Ar
tielo on Michigan Athletics
The June number of the Inlander
will make its appearance on the cam-
pus Friday. W. W. Schroeder, '16L,

whose article on the Michigan Union
in the May number aroused much fa-
vorable criticism, has contributed an-
other article concerning athletics at
Michigan. It is a penetrating analysis
of the present. situation, and deals
with questions which will be widely
discussed next fall.
In addition, there is an article by
Harold B. Teegarden, concerning the
performances of the Student Council;
a story, "The Manuscript," by Emily
M. Mack, '19, which won first prize
in the Stylus short story contest; and
a short humorous playlet, "Eden
Again," written by Mary Langhorne,
The number abounds in poetry. Max-
well E. Pitkin, '16L, vividly presents
the picture of the snowbound "Ir-
kutsk," the "Paris of the steppes."
Probably the poem, "A Flirtation," in
the impressionistic style, which is be-

Make Additions to Equipment; Several
Prominent MAen to Visit
One hundred and five men are al-
ready enrolled for Camp Davis this
summer, 14 of these being foresters.
The official opening of the camp will
take place on July 5, and the season
will last eight weeks.
Professor C. T. Johnston is looking
for the best season in the history of
the camp. A 35-foot launch has been
recently purchased and will be put in
Lake Burt, about four miles from
camp. This will open up over 150
miles of inland lakes and rivers, along
which surveying operations can be
extended. Among the distinguished
visitors expected to visit the engineer-
ing "wigwam" this summer, are Presi-
dent Hutchins and Dean Cooley. Dr.
Drury will replace Dr. Stauffer as
camp physician.
Forestry Club to Elect Tomorrow
Election of officers for next year will
be held by the Forestry club of the
university at their meeting to be held
in their rooms in the Natural Science
building tomorrow night. This will
be the last meeting of the year. It
is also expected that a business ihana-
ger for the University of Michigan

department, will be elected for next
