Langs and iRobbins Nominated for
flee of Varsity Football
COUPON NUMBER 33 REQUIRED
Nominations for athletic offices to be
filled at the mid-year election of the
athletic association to be held from
11:00 o'clock to 3:00 o'clock next
Wednesday, were yesterday announced
by the board of directors.
John W. Langs, '17, and John C.
Robbins, '17E, will be placed on the
ballot as candidates for Varsity foot-
ball manager. Eight men are nomin-
ated as assistants to the football man-
ager, as follows: Robert H. Bennett,
'18, Charles F. Boos, '18, James L.
Driscoll, '18E, John D. Hibbard, '18E,
Ezra W. Lockwood, '18, Howard P.
Nicholson, '18, Charles Y. Osburn, '18E,
and Leland N. Scofield, '18. Four of
these men will be elected.
The new office of intercollege mana-
ger will be contested for by Albert
E. Stoll, '17, and James W. Thomas, '16.
The nominees for assistants to the
intercollege manager are Willis Brod-
head,''17E, Ralph W. Harbert, '17, and
Harold A. Taylor, '17E. Three men
iwill be elected as assistants.
Owing to the recent creation of the
office of intercollege managr and the
fact that the nature of the duties of the
oP ice are not fully understood on the
campus,, there has been little competi-
tion in this branch. The man elected
as intercollege manager at Wednes-
day's election will be chairman of an
intercollege board made up of inter-.
class managers; he will have a seat
on the board of directors of the ath-
letic association, and be entitled to
the same privileges and awards as go
with the Varsity football or baseball
managerships. The intercollege mana-
ger and assistants elected next week
will hold office only until June, as the
regular election for that office will in
the future be held at thetime of elec-
tions in the spring. It is quite pos-
sible that some arrangement may soon
be made whereby all elections for of-
fices of the athletic association will be
held on' the Campus Election day.
Next Wednesday's election will be
held in University hall. Coupon No. 33,
signed, must be presented by the per-
son desiring the privilege of voting.
TIGER DOWNS QUAKER QUINTET
TIGHTEIMNG UP RACE IN EAST
Princeton, N. J., Feb. 25.-Playing
at great speed throughout the contest,
Princeton and Pennsylvania met here
last night in what might have been
a decisive intercollegiate basketball
game so far as the Tigers' chances for
the championship were concerned. But
the Princeton five defeated Pennsyl--
vania by a score of'28 to 20, moved
up to within half a game of the lead,
and made the race from now on a
three-cornered one between Pennsyl-
vania, Princeton and Cornell.
With the final honors in the balance
both teams put forth all their efforts
to win, but it is probable that no one
on either side worked * harder than
the officials. Penn scored all but six
of her points by means of the skillful
tossing of Captain Eddie McNichols
from the foul line. He succeeded in
14 out of 16 attempts. Haas, the
Princeton man, could only cage eight
out of 11 tries.
Heart failure Thursday afternoon
caused the death of J. Al. Perkins, tlt-
ter known to hundreds of Michigan
athletes as "Si" Perkins.
"Si" has been closely connected
with the athletic activities of the uni-
versity for years, having served in
the capacity of janitor at the gymnas-
ium from its completion in 1894 up
to within the last five years. In the
days before the club-house was a re-
ality at Ferry Field, the athletes on
all teams dressed in the locker rooms
of the gymnasium, and "Si" was on
good terms with all of them. Old
athletes who return to the university
and visit at the athletic association
offices have rarely failed to ask about
"Si." Professional rubbers were not
so common in the old days, and on
many an occasion "Si" lent a hand in
soothing the sinews of the men on
the rubbing tables.
"Si" was a particular friend of
Keene Fitzpatrick, former Michigan'
trainer, who is now' at Princeton.

ORANG E CREW CANDIDATES NOW
l)EVELOPIN% AT RAPID DATE
Coach Ten Eyck Working Men on In-
door Tank Machine Until
Syracuse, N. Y., Feb. 25.--The pro-
gress of candidates for the Syracuse
university crews has been so satisfac-
tory during the past week that follow-
ers of the Orange navy have assumed
an air of optimism. There are a num-
ber of men available who form -an
excellent nucleus for a big eight. Thus
far, the work has been confined to the
tank machine. It is not probable that
candidates will be taken to the Onon-
daga lake outlet for their outdoor
work until early next month. Coach
Mr. Rodrigo H. Bonilla, of the Span-
ish department, gave the third of his
series of lectures before the Latin-
American club yesterday afternoon.
The lecture covered the reforms ef-
fected by Mohammed among his com-
patriots, their conquest of Syria, Per-
sia, Egypt, and the manner in which
they spread over northern Africa and
how they finally reached Spain in
711 A. D.
Mr. Bonilla also spoke of the main
caliphs of Cordova and of the high de-
gree of intellectual and material
prosperity 'attained by the kingdom of
Andalusia during the ninth and tenth
centuries, which was followed by its
decline and final downfall.
He said in concluding his talk:
"Here we see this country which,
having reached the highest point of
civilization and material wefare under
the Moors, is condemned to a quick
fal to its former state of semi-bar-
barianism; a prey to hypocrisy and
superstition; a chosen field for the
friar and the inquisition, whose influ-
ence was still felt at the beginning of
the nineteenth century."
Mr. Harry V. Wann, announced yes-
terday that tryouts would be held
soon for the play which will be given
by the Cercle Francais in April. "M-
quette et Samere" is the play which
has been selected. It is a three-act
comedy, which calls for 21 characters.
It is expected that the majority of the
parts will be taken by members of the
Cercle Francais, but on account of the
sire of the cast there will be an op-
portunity for non-members to try out.
An announcement of the tryouts will
be made in a few days and the parts
will be assigned.
DR. HARRISON AND F. B. SMITH

March 19 and ending Friday, March 24.
Several prominent speakers have been
secured. Dr. Harrison, who has spent
much time at the mission in Arabia,

The object of the Busrah campaign
is to raise a fund for the support of
a missionary project in Arabia. The
affair is a local undertaking. The
project consists in the maintaining of
a hospital at Busrah, Arabia, a city
of 70,000 people near the mouth of
the Tigris river, for giving medical
aid and medical instruction to the in-
No definite plans for the operating
of the campaign have been decided
upon but it is expected that the sys-
tem will be about the same as last
year. This, the seventh Busrah cam-
paign, will endeavor to raise about
$3,000, a sum similar to that secured
during previous years.
A similar campaign is carried on

nothing of this nature has been tried.
McNamara and Soddy were missing

season, but Coach Lundgren is ex-
