With Alpha Kappa Psi Fraternity,




Phi chapter of Alpha Kappa Psi, a
national commercial fraternity, was
installed here yesterday by members

The Alpha Kappa Psi is composed
of members of the Commerce club,
which was started in 1910, in connec-
tion with the department of business'
administration. The old organization

in addition to its social activities has
been a medium through which em-
ployers got in touch with men grad-
uating from the department and it
has also been active in securing
speakers on commercial matters for
its open meetings.
The new fraternity will continue
this program and expects to be able
to accomplish even more than did the
Commerce club through its affiliation
with the national organization of 211
Honorary members of the chapter
are: Prof. Henry C. Adams, Prof.
Fred M. Taylor, Prof.,J. Leo Sharf-
man, Prof. David L. Friday, Prof.

English Runners Establish Woridrs
Record in Two Mile Race
(By Associated Press)
Philadelphia, May 1.-English var-
sity runners scored an international
triumph here today when the combin-
ed Oxford-Cambridge teams of half
milers defeated the leading college
quartettes in the two mile champion-
ship relay race, the feature contest of
the University of Pennsylvania's 26th
annual carnival. Forced to run at
a terrific pace by their American
competitors, the viisiting collegians
showed that their victory was in no
manner a fluke by taking the lead in
,the third quarter and finishing in a
nlew world's record time of 7:50 2-5
,econds for the two miles.
Clips Two Seconds Off Record--
The four runners, W. G. Tantham,
Cambridge; H. B. Stallad, Cambridge;
W. R. Milligan, Oxford; and B. G. D.
Rudd, Oxford, clipped two and three-
fifths seconds from, the previous rec-
ord, which was jointly held by the
Irish American Athletic team and the
Yale university quartette..
The average time for the four Eng-
'ish half milers was 1.57 3-5. Rudd
ran the, final half mile in 1:54 3-5, 2
and 2-25 seconds above the world's
record held by Meredith of Pennsyl-
Suckers 44 Yards Behind
Sohe 40 yards behind the last of
the English combination came the
anchor man of the Illinois squad, and
he was closely followed by a Pennsyl-
vania runner for a ,third. Cornell'
took a fourth out of the two mile re-
lay, and Ames, winner of this eventj
at the Drake carnival, failed to fpiish
with the leading quartettes.

There was none of the sensational
thrill of the Jackson-McCurdy should-
er to shoulder duel which marked the
finish of the 1914 relay between Ox-
ford and Pennsylvania, but the Eng-
lish victory elicited a great round of
applause which swelled into a per-
fect roar of appreciation when it was
announced that the British rivals had
set a new world's recordwhich is
likely to stand for some time.
Wipes Out Disappointment
The winning of the two mile cham-
pionship, for which the English team
crossed the ocean, wiped out some of
the disappointment which they must
have felt at the easy manner in which
H. Jeppe was defeated in the 120 yard
high hurdles. Jeppe, who is a South
African Rhodes scholar at Oxford,
ran second in the slowest heat of this
event, and was therefore shut out
,from competing in the final.
Next to the two mile chdmpionship
race with its international flavor,
chief interest centered in the one and
four mile American college title re-
lay. In the mile event in which each
runner was called upon to run 440
yards, Kelly and Fischer of Minnesota
lead over Davis of Pennsylvania and
Owens of Nebraska in the first two
quarters, but Maxam of Pennsylvania
rushed to the front in the third relay
passing McNally of Minnesota and
gave Earl Eby his team mate, a lead
which the latter, running the final
quarter in 50 seconds flat, stretched
into a 20 yard victory.
Oss Gains Second
Oss gained second place for Min-
nesota while Wheeler of Michigan
out ran Terril of Princeton for fourth.,
The four mile relay went to Penn
State college which defeated seven of;

, 'Anmi Fritz" Holds Rehearsal;
First Performance, Monday Night

Donors to Sign
On these slieets, those who con-
tribute to'the campaign will be asked
to sign their names, classes and
home town. Blue ink is to be used{
throughout in order to carry out the
color scheme.
"We hit upon this idea after search-'
ing our brains for some scheme where-
by we could give President Hutch-
ins, for himself, a true record of those
whom he can count among his real
friends," declared C. A. Newcomb,
'20, chairman of the committee in
charge of the campaign. "The reason
that we ask each man who signs his
name in the book to also put down
his home town, is to show the- pres-
ident that men from every part of the
country and every corner of the
world, in fact, can be numbered among
his friends."
Expectations are that nearly 300
pages will be needed to allow all the
donors to sign their names.
When the campaign for the por-
trait funds is completed, the sheets
carried by each solicitor, upon which
the -donors have placed their auto-
graphs, will be gathered together and
bound in a leather cover. An 'en-
graving in the front of the volume
will carry not only an appreciation
of the president's work for Michigan,
but also the purpose of the volume.
Only One in Existence ,
The completed volume in original
form will be presented to the presi-
dent. It will be the' only one in ex-
istence as no effort will be made
to reproduce it. The object of this
is to insure the individuality of the
Enthusiastic comment which Deai
Mortimer E. Cooley of the Engineer-

Tailors Boost
Prices Blaming
Cost Of Labor
All tailors in Ann Arbor increased
their prices on cleaning and pressing
Saturday, May 1. The advance was
caused by the steady climb in the
price of gas and labor, they claim.
An attempt was made to make a
similar increase last winter, but the
majority of tailors decided to wait
until such a step should become ab-
solutely necessary. The price of
pressing trousers has increased from
15 to 25 cents, of suits from 35 to 50
cents, and of overcoats from 25 to 50
and 75 cents.
Cleaning has advanced from $1.50 to
$1.75 on suits. Two and three piece
suits are the same price. Overcoats
have also increased in price from
$1.50 to $1.75 and $2.00. Palm Beach
suits and white flannel trousers will
be- affected by the change.
Fear Would Leave Disastrous Effect,
on Chance in Confer-
Michigan will not enter a team in
the eastern intercollegiate track meet1
this year according to a resolution ap-
proved by the Board in Control of
Athletics at its meeting yesterday
This action was deemed advisable]
by the board in view of the fact that
the eastern meet is scheduled for May1
20 which would leave only a week in
which to prepare for the outdoor Con-
ference meet on Ferry field. There
would also be danger of injury ort
staleness either of which would mate-
rially weaken the team in its en-
deavor to retain the championship of
the west.
Corresponds to Big Ten Meet .
The eastern intercollegiate meet
corresponds to the Western Confer-#
ence meet in importance and in thes
calibre of the men participating. The
meet this year will be held at Phil-
ad'elphia, the final preparations not1
being completed as yet.
Before returning to the ConferenceI
'and even up to this year Michigan has
always been a strong contender forI
these eastern, honors but the board in
control in giving its decision con-k
cluded that our, first concern should
be the Western Conference meet as
we are now once more competing for
the Big Ten championship. Had not
the eastern meet been scheduled May
29, just a week beforecthedConfer-
ence meet on Ferry field, Michigan
would in all probability have entered
a team.
The petition of the Boxing club for
recognition of boxing as a Varsity
sport was tabled pending further in-
formationias to the expense and other
details. This question will come be-
fore the board at their next meetingt
and a decision will be forthcoming{
at that time. No intimation of the
intended action was made.
Tennis Schedule Approved
Salaries of the various athletic of-J
ficials were passed upon and the ten-
nis schedule was approved. Approv-
al was also given the granting of the1
baseball "M" and "AMA" to the men1

representing* the University in that
sport during the past season..
Iowa Defeats Illinois
Urbana, Ill., May 1.-The Univer-
sity of Iowa baseball nine quelched
the Illini nine here this afternoon by
a score of 4 to 3. This shuts out the
Suckers' hopes for an undefeated sea-
son in the Conference, and helps to
eliminate them from competition for
the Big Ten title.

the notice.
Persons wishing to make sure
that a notice shall be printed on
