Contest May Decide Which Class Will
Receive Third Set of
Senior its versus the senior engine-
ers is thegame in the inter-class foot-
ball series scheduled to be played at
3:30 o'clck today on south Ferry
Field. Tie game will come off rain
or shine. This contest practically de-
cides wh> will receive the third set
of numeals, if the dope is reliable.
However thire is a chance that one
of these two teams may not receive
any insinia at all, as the losers are
scheduld to play the soph lits on
Friday tr the fourth set of numerals,
accordig to the original plan that the
lowest ?am in the first division must
play th highest team in the second di-
vision or the fourth set of class in-
signia. The lowest team in the
first tvision will be the losers of
today':game and the highest team in
the s(ond division is the soph lit
teain, )y virtue of that aggregation's
defeaof the J-lits.
Anther game on Friday will be be-
tweeithe senior laws and the winners
of th game today, for the second set
of rierals. In case either team
lose that losing team will receive the
thirset of numerals and the winning
reiwill get the second set, while as
hasbeen stated before, the fourth
setwill be contested between the
soj lits and the losers of the game
beeen the senior lits and the
seor engineers.
o avoid mistakes, the schedule for

These games must be played on the
)te set, and no postponements are to

Big Cormnpetition Atbletic Eoard to Consider Taking on

A new organization has risen to
There is a bare possibility of a soc-

fame by its performance on one oc-
casion, said musical organization be-#
ing the senior law band, and the afore-f
mentioned occasion being the game be-
tveen the senior laws and the dents for
the campus championship last Satur-
That Varsity band never created4
quite the sensation that this newer
aggregation of assorted instruments
caused when it marched down State
street Saturday at the head of a hund-
red legal rooters. Nothing could sur-
pass the address with which Drum-
major Nickles led the band, the fact
that he carried a broom in lieu of a
baton was in no wise a handicap, in
fact he handled the broom with more
skill and ease than might possibly have
been the case if he had used a regula-
tion, silver-knobbed staff.
While the game was in progress se-
lections were ably rendered from the
stand with a view to general effect.
Director I. Lash Thomas appeared to
understand just how to get out of his
band all they had and he certainly
got it all, at least according to the
judgment of the bystanders. The
personnel of the organization em-
braced such artists as "Rooster"
Johnson who persuaded his baritone
horn to coin several notes especially
for the occasion, Paul H. Rogers, who
comprised the whole of the cornet sec-
tion and ably held his own against
great odds. Leroy Scanlon mhaintained
his reputation as a musician by his
extraordinary technique in handling
the bass drum stick.
Between halves the band marched
out on the field and played the "Vic-
tors" with great execution. Followed
by the entire law rooting contingent,
Drum-major Nickles led his charges
through divers evolutions ending with
a cheer under'the goal post followed
by the singing of "How Dry I Am"
with bared heads. Whether this is the
law natiohal anthem or not has not
been decided, the dents claim that it is
their funeral hymn,
After the game, nothing daunted by
defeat, the band cranked up and imi-
tating lockstep courageously marched
off the field. At this point the dents
took the signal for a snake dance and
forthwith began to coil along behind

for the Varsity team, to be played here
in the near future.
At present the proposition is before
the Board of Control of Athletics as to
whether the game may be arranged. In
case the board acts favorably on the
proposal, it is possible that the game
will be arranged. No overtures have

been made by either team as yet, and
none will be made until the board has
had an opportunity to act.
It is hoped that the game can be
arranged, since the schedule has been
extremely short and the Ontario team
is possessed of an excellent reputa-
tion. .Members of the local squad are
desirous of playing another game this
season if for no other reason than
to round out the schedule.

The following reached this column

Detroit Central has one of the great-
est football teams she has ever had.
This is saying considerable in itself,
and Michigan men are now wondering
just how many of these young athletes
will come to Ann Arbor.
Michigan has Detroit right under
her nose, so to speak, and yet every
year a startingly big proportion of
Central footballers rush clear down
east to play with some of the eastern
Michigan does not pay her athletes,
and since several of the bigger uni-
versities in other parts of the coun-
try are said to, the Maize and Blue is
confronted by a perplexing problem.
This does not mean to imply in the
least that Michigan should, and no one
institution on the campus is more
strongly against this than the Daily,
but facts are facts for all that.
Hendrian and Straw are headed to-
wards Brown, according to ' rumors,
which institution dragged "Les" Clark
down east and away from Michigan,
Brown's policy concerning the reim-
bursement of athletes is not the pur-
port of this article. We are uninter-
ested, but the big fact remains that

Ann Arbor is not drawing as many
of the Detroit athletes as she should.
Thus the duty descends upon the
shoulders of the student body and the
alumni. If certain men have been of-
fered inducements to go east, our
only recourse is to make Michigan
appear so attractive that they will
still come here in spite of their east-
ern offers. The entertainment of these
youngsters while they are in Ann Ar-
bor counts for a lot, and a "boost
Michigan" spirit when out of town is
equally as valuable.
Coach Yost stated just . before the
Cornell game that "Michigan needs
more athletes, if she wants to con-
tinue to win football games," and the
only way to get them is through mak-
ing this university as attractive to
them as possible.
Captain Barrett of Cornell has
scored more touchdowns than the en-
tire Michigan, Yale, Princeton or
Pennsylvania team, has made. In
fact Barrett has scored over twice as
many as Yale.
As some one remarked, "The Har-
vard of the species is more deadly
than the Yale." Slightly, Adolph.

New Men Expected to Show Up Well
in Tests at Waterman
There will be no tryouts for official
strong man of the university until at
least the first of the year, according
to a statement made by Dr. George A.
May, director of the Waterman gym-
nasium. Dr. May does not wish to
subject the men who are intending to
enter the trials to such a severe strain
without first giving them an oppor-
tunity to train for the event. Also he
expects much better records to be
made if the contestants indulge in a
little preliminary practice.
Roy W. Johnson, '18, who last year
made such a fine record as a college
Hercules, is out this year practicing
the events on which he was weakest
last season. He nearly equaled the
intercollegiate record last winter with
no preliminary practice and this sea-
son it is hoped that he will come
much closer to the coveted, mark, if
he does not pass it.
There should be some good material
among the men entering the university
this year. Willard Peach, '18, Elton E.
Wieman, 19, and Shelton Jones, '19,
should all be able to lift the weights
to good advantage. Peach, Wieman
and Jones passed the best physical ex-
aminations of those which went on
record at the Waterman Gymnasium
this fall, rising high above the aver-
age -in every measurement. If they
enter the strong man contest the ques-
tion as to whether they can make their
size tell to good advantage will be de-
Pennsylvania Club to Hold Smoker
Pennsylvania club will hold a "get-
together smoker" at the Union at 7:30
o'clock this evening. Mr. R. O. Boni-
steel, '12L, LeRoy J. Scanlon, '16L,
and Russel D. Kilborn, Grad, are on
the program and a general good time
is assured. All members of the fac-
ulty who are from Pennsylvania and
all Pennsylvania students are urged
to attend.

In spite of the fact that no steps
have been taken toward organizing
a handball squad more than a dozen
men were out practicing that game this
afternoon. The courts were crowded
all the time and there were always
several men waiting for a chance to
play. From the good games put up
by several of the players it is evident
that the tournament this year will be
closely contested and marked by better
playing than that of last season.
Dr. George A. May, director of the
Waterman Gymnasium, is highly grati-
fied over the fact that the men are
taking such an interest in the sport.
"It is a fine game," he said, "one which
will develop both wind and endurance.
Men who play handball have to think
and act quickly, and continual practice
tends to produce co-ordination be-
tween the brain and muscles. A per-
son gets so he does the right thing at
the right time practically without any
conscious thought on the subject. I
really believe that it would help a
football man inestimably if he were
to take up handball for he would gain
in co-ordination, and would be much
less liable to pull a "boner" at a criti-
cal moment in a close game where
everything depends on quick thinking
and action."
As any incentive to'the players the
athletic association is again offering
silver cups to the winners of the
singles and doubles in the coming tour-
nament, the trophies to be the per-
manent property of the persons win-
ning them.
Dr. May desires that some man in-
terested in handball will report to
him and take charge of the organiza-
tion of the tournament. Nothing can
be done along that line until some one
is found who will devote a little time to
it and make out a schedule of play.

ful snow and ice of the arctic regions,
as well as a number of excellent
photographs of the bird and animal
life of the far north.

While all eyes are focused in the

thought and thorough consideration,

because of their animal spirits, though
many gay old birds, also because of
their spirits, Old Crow, for example,
have been considered because of their
