PLAN FOR EXHiBIT
Zoology, Geology and Botany Depart-
ments Unite in Displaying Features
in New Science Building
FACULTY MEMBERS TO LECTURE
Not among the least attractive of
the departmental exhibits to be given
in connection with the Engineering ex-
hibit May 18 and 19 will be those
given by the zoology, geology and bot-
any departments. Through enthusias-
tie and conscientious effort by the
faculty and student body of these de-
partments, excellent results have
In room Z-154 of the New Science
building, the department of zoology
will install its aquarium. Large ce-
ment tanks and smaller aquaria will
be used to show methods of keeping
alive fish, crayfish, turtles, salaman-
ders, frogs, toads, muskrats, etc. In
the zoological shop in room Z-159 will
be electrically driven lathes, drill
presses, and other apparatus used by
students and investigators.
A representative collection of ani-
mal parasites will be demonstrated un-
der microscopes in room 231. Typi-
cal Michigan vertebrates will be on
display in room 346, while the ento-
mological exhibit will occupy room 348.
Three rooms of the New Science
building will be used by the geology
department. The preparation room,
where the skeletons of prehistoric ani-
mals will be shown, is to be on the
first floor. Room 332 will show some
interesting specimens of the geology
A collection of views illustrative of
geological features and particularly
two large panoramic views of the
Grand Canyon of the Colorado and the
Baltoro Glacier in the Himalaya moun-
tains, will be on view in the corridor
of the second floor.

house is also to be in readiness for
The microscopic study of the vas-
cular plants and the microtechnique
of woods will be featured by Prof. W.
W. Tupper on the third floor. Many
modern instruments, such as micro-
tomes, air pumps, electric baths, and
photomicographs will be shown. In
room 313 will be the plant ecology
and morphology exhibits.
A collection illustrating the eco-
nomic fungus diseases of field and
forest plants will be shown in room
B-400. Owing to the difficulty of ob-
taining laboratory equipment, the de-
partment will be unable to show some
of its most valuable museum material.
'TED' MEREDITH BREAKS RECORD
Penn Runner Runs Half-Mile in
1:52 14 Saturday
Philadelphia, May 15.-J. E. "Ted"
Meredith, the marvelous Pennsylvania
middle distance runner, smashed the
world's half-mile record in the dual
meet between Cornell and Pennsyl-
vania on Franklin field Saturday after-
noon in one of the most sensational
races seen on the Quaker track in
The Red and. Blue flyer stepped the
distance in 1 minute 52 1-5 seconds,
displacing the old record of 1 minute
52 1-2 seconds, which Meredith himself
made at the Olympic games in Stock-
holm in 1912.

CHICAGO SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA1
TO ( ARRIVE WEDNESDAY t
FRIEDA HEMPLE SINGS FIRSTt
Vocnl Numbers by Metropolitan Opera
Star Aided by Music
Tomorrow evening will mark the
beginning of the twenty-th ird annualr
May Festival which is not only the
culmination of the musical activities
of the year in Ann Arbor, but is one
of the largest and finest festivals in
this part of the country.
The Chicago Symphony Orchestra,
many members of which have become
citizens of Ann Arbor, will arrive
from Oberlin, Ohio, tomorrow morn-
ing. At the same time several of the
soloists will put in an appearance,
while musicians and music lovers
from all parts of the state will begin
to descend upon the University City.
Great interest is centered in the
opening concert, which will consist of
several orchestral numbers inter-
spersed by vocal numbers sung by
Frieda Hempel, the coloratura so-
prano of the Metropolitan Opera com-
pany, who during her four-years' re-
gime with that august body has at-
tained a foremost position, and whose
art is so superior, and whose person-
ality so pleasing that her appearances
there are always features of the Met-
ropolitan Opera season. Unlike many
operatic stars whose success is made
possible largely through a scenic back-
ground and the support of associate
artists, she possesses the charm of a
successful festival singer.
Miss Hempel has been heard in sev-
eral of the leading festivals and al-
ways with the same enthusiasm. The
numbers which she will present at
Ann Arbor have been selected with
great care from her extensive reper-
The first festival concert promises to
eclipse any of the opening nights
which have taken place in the past
in variety, brilliance and solidity.

scoring Captain Labadie from first.
He himself came home a minute later
on a single by Caswell.
In the fifth, Dunne beat out a per-
fect bunt along the first base line.
Newell sacrificed him to second, from
where he scored on Robins' drive to
center, tying the score. Immediately
the Orangemen started a slugging fest.
A single, a double and a triple con-
secutively, netted them two more runs
in the last half of the fifth.
Brandell got a walk in the sixth,
stole second, and scored on Caswell's
double to left. In the seventh Michi-

walked two men and then hit a man,
filling the bases. Slater, the Syracuse
twirler, slammed the ball to center
field for a double, scoring two runs
ahead of him. Thomas threw the
next man out at the plate.
The Wolverines played a fast, dash-
ing game, and appeared to have re-
turned to old time hitting strength.
They touched Slater hardest in the
fourth, driving several directly at the
fielders. Turnure and Miller will
probably be the opposing pitchers in
